Hey Canada, what're you at?

Tom Power is back to do a virtual check-in with Canadians across the country — from his living room.

"What're you at?" is Tom's friendly Newfoundland way of asking, "How are you?" 

In this episode, Tom catches up with familiar pals and new faces, including teachers, frontline workers, famous artists and a special guest from CBC Kids. 

Gary the Unicorn 

The Studio K Show superstar hugger Gary the Unicorn joins the conversation from under his blanket fort. 

Gary the Unicorn is famous for loving hugs, but social distancing means that he has to learn how to hug in a different way. Gary teaches Tom how to send "hug mail" from a safe distance.
