Part One

Michael Reagan
They've both used the slogan "Make America Great Again" -- but our guest says Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump have nothing else in common. And he should know: he's Ronald Reagan's son. 

Diving runners
Bahamian runner Shaunae Miller wins the Olympic four-hundred by diving over the finish line -- and though some cry foul, Perdita Felicien says "Let the champs fall where they may". 

AK-47 artist
A British soldier-turned-artist thought Texas would welcome his works made from decommissioned AK-47s -- but is up in arms to find they won't be allowed into the U.S. 

Part Two

Baby snatching
Thirty-eight years ago, a Montreal woman's baby disappeared -- and now, a Y-shaped birthmark may be the clue that leads Liliane Cyr to her long-lost child. 

Syrian chocolatier
He abandoned his chocolate factory in Damascus during the war -- and now, just months after arriving in Canada, Syrian refugee Tareq Hadhad has found a tiny sweet spot in Nova Scotia.
