Breakaway broadcasts across the province of Quebec on CBC Radio One. Based in our Sherbrooke bureau, we cover the stories and introduce you to people from the Gaspé to the Abitibi to the Lower North Shore. We bring you information, energy, and fun all with a Quebec twist.
It's a story of spies and intrigue. An alliance between the Allied forces and a race against the enemy. All in the hopes of being first to develop history's most devastating weapon yet. And -- it happened right here -- in a secret lab in Montreal. That part of Quebec's history has for a long time been hidden and covered up -- until now. Breakaway guest host Peter Tardif talks with Gilles Sabourin. He just published a book titled "Montréal et la bombe".
