TONIGHT: Just in time. The province won't fund the only private abortion clinic in New Brunswick -- but with the lease set to run out, a crowd-funding effort comes up with a hundred thousand dollars...AND Trial by fire. Huge swathes of the Northwest Territories are in flames tonight -- and while the wildfires haven't reached Yellowknife, the damage is being done elsewhere.

Part One

NB abortion fundraiser
Just in time. The province won't fund the only private abortion clinic in New Brunswick -- but with the lease set to run out, a crowd-funding effort comes up with a hundred thousand dollars.

Liknes resident searcher
A community searches itself. In the grieving city of Airdrie, Alberta, volunteers continue to search for the bodies of a five-year-old boy and his grandparents.

Sausage price fixing
Building a conspiracy from the ground-up. That is, the ground-up bits of assorted animals. Twenty-one German companies are embroiled, or embarbecued, in a plot to fix the price of sausages

Part Two

NWT fires

Trial by fire. Huge swathes of the Northwest Territories are in flames tonight -- and while the wildfires haven't reached Yellowknife, the damage is being done elsewhere.

Tajikistan - Canadian
For a month now, he has been detained in Tajikistan, amid swirling government accusations that he's a spy. But colleagues of University of Toronto's Alexander Sodiqov, say he was simply doing academic research.

Alberta licence plates
All work and no plate. Alberta's approach to changing its provincial license plate has been a fender blunder -- but an Edmonton firm is ready with a bumper crop of ideas.
