Part One

Greyhound Cancelled
Greyhound announces it's cutting service in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and BC — and our guest says that means would-be travellers in half the country will be going nowhere fast. 

Border Families
The Trump Administration admits it won't meet Tuesday's court-ordered deadline — meaning more than 100 young children separated from their families at the border still aren't reunited with their families. 

Amsterdam Canal
When they excavated two canals in Amsterdam, archaeologists found some fascinating items people had thrown in, going back decades — and they also found artifacts going back millennia. 

Part Two

Thai Cave Rescue Latest
Eight boys have now been freed by rescuers — and a journalist covering the cave rescue in Thailand tells us the mood in Mae Sai is "definitely more optimistic".

Brexit Exits
Two key ministers — including outspoken Foreign Minister Boris Johnson — resign over the government's approach to Brexit, but our guest suggests that, ultimately, it's a tempest in a teapot. 

Niagara Fire 
More than 30 vehicles are destroyed when a grass fire rips through a lavender festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario — and our guest barely manages to get her car out in time.
