Part One

North Korea claims it just successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile — and for once, there are serious concerns that's more than just propaganda. 

Proud Boys
An Indigenous activist's ceremony mourning atrocities against First Nations people in Nova Scotia is disrupted by a group calling themselves "the Proud Boys" — five of whom are Canadian soldiers. 

Jefferson House
A new project at Thomas Jefferson's plantation is restoring the living quarters of Sally Hemings, the enslaved woman who's believed to have had at least six of his children. To our guest, that's important — because she works at Monticello and is also a descendant of Hemings. 

Part Two

Seniors Home
The grandson of a patient at an Ottawa care facility gets video evidence of a worker repeatedly punching his grandfather in the head — and now he's wondering how such a thing could have happened. 

Fentanyl Cop Update
