This week on This Is That: 


  • Earlier this week, a skeleton dating all the way back to 1850 was discovered on the banks of the Hudson Bay and it is giving archaeologists great insight into what Canadians were really like in the mid 19th-Century. We talk to one of the archeology team to learn more.

  • Finally, Pat Kelly brings us a feature length documentary about Lloydminster- the Canadian town that shares the unique distinction of being split down the middle by two provinces but still operating as one municipality. In it he explores what life is really like there and profiles the under-reported tension that exists between the Alberta side and the Saskatchewan side.
