Season 4 Episode 6

This week on This Is That:

- Peter Oldring speaks with a representative of the CRTC about why in the new year Canadian high school students will have to wear 'Canadian clothing' for 70% of their school week.
- We profile what people are calling "Western Canada's best restaurant," the Lakeside Memorial Hospital in Kelowna, B.C.

- We find out why Canadian Border Services agents are being federally mandated to take public relations courses.    

- Our microphones go into the friendly skies at the Selkirk Air Show with Canada's elite hot-air balloon stunt squad, The Jolly Balloons.   

- Plus, we play your calls in reaction to a story we ran last week about the Government of Canada rolling out a universal language of 54 car horn honks that all Canadian drivers will have to learn by next spring.
