Part One

Family Law Changes
Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould explains the federal government's new changes to the way Canadians divorce — which she says are designed to put kids first. 

Interview Mag Closes
They're afraid they're going to have to leave it there. It's a wrap for "Interview" magazine — but our guest recalls its halcyon days in the '70s, under the watchful eye, and stylish wig, of Andy Warhol. 

Canada Jay
You could call it a wild goose chase. But only because Professor David Bird is shooing Canada geese away from "national bird" status — and hoping it's bestowed upon the newly-renamed "Canada Jay". 

Part Two

Emily Carr Painting Renamed
Take me to "Church". Until recently, if you'd asked a curator at the Art Gallery of Ontario that, they'd have walked you to a classic Emily Carr painting called "Indian Church" — but now, it goes by a controversial new name. 

Lynx Video Guy
An Ontario man's dramatic video of two lynxes arguing goes viral — and while their vocalizations may sound tough to each other, humans are howling at their howling. 

Part Three

Mugshot Website Charges
The webmasters at Mugshots-dot-com are charged with extortion for charging people to have their photos taken down — including our guest, who was exonerated after 15 years in prison. 

Yukon Alcohol Study Update
Put a cork in it. The Globe and Mail gets hold of previously private emails, which reveal what researchers already suspected: that the liquor industry put pressure on the Yukon government to suspend a study looking at the effectiveness of cancer warnings on alcohol. 

Swedish War Pamphlets 
If Crisis Or War Comes". That is the ominous title of a pamphlet every Swede will get on how to prepare for disaster — the first since the Cold War.
