Today on The Current

  • We continue our One Bullet series on gun violence with a look back at a dramatic hostage situation outside Union Station in Toronto in 2004.
  • After British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal was defeated in parliament Tuesday, what's next for the troubled process? And what does it all mean for the people living in uncertainty?
  • On a whim, a tight-knit squad of adult female figure skaters in Kelowna, B.C., decided to try and compete in the 2018 ISU Adult Figure Skating Competition in Germany. We hear from two of the women about the bond the group formed on the ice, and a journey that was both life-affirming and exhausting.
