Episode transcript

Part One

Hurricane Maria: Tortola resident
Irma left the British Virgin Island of Tortola in ruins — and before storm-weary residents can recover, Maria is set to arrive on the island tomorrow. 

'Narcos' death
When a location scout for the Netflix series "Narcos" went to Mexico, he was shot to death — raising questions the show's producers haven't answered. 

Old canoe
A dugout canoe was buried at the bottom of a Florida lagoon, possibly for centuries — until Hurricane Irma scooped it up and left it on dry land for a local beachcomber to find. 

Part Two

Liver transplant
Because an Ontario man has only been sober two-and-a-half months instead of six, he's not eligible for a liver transplant — so he's going to court to fight for an injunction. 

'Lemonade' punk band
The guitarist from Ottawa punk band Zex goes on the record about being on Beyoncé's record — after a pressing mishap puts their songs on the A-side of Beyoncé's magnum opus.

Part Three

Tax plan doctor
Not all doctors are opposed to the Liberal government's tax reform plan: ER physician Dr. Hasan Sheikh explains why he thinks he and his colleagues have a responsibility to pay up.
