Today on The Current

  • British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced her departure date, after months of crises and humiliation over her Brexit plan. But her resignation won't solve the larger problems with Brexit, says an author and historian.

  • Last fall, we introduced you to Christopher Skaife, the ravenmaster of the Tower of London. This spring, he's welcoming the first raven chick to have hatched on the property in 30 years. He tells us what new ravens mean for the fate of the kingdom.

  • What happens when you send a journalist back to high school? CBC's Jason D'Souza brings the answer, having spent a month attending classes at L.A. Matheson Secondary School in Surrey, B.C.

  • Wild pigs are smart, hardy, and multiplying, proving to be a major force to contend with in cities, farmers fields and beyond. Their numbers in Canada are rising — what could this population boom mean for us?

  • In a unanimous decision released Friday, the B.C. Court of Appeal says British Columbia does not have the right to impose environmental laws that could kill the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.
