The Link Online (#15) Sat Oct.06 2012

This week for show # 15 of the Link Online, Wojtek, Lynn, and Marc look at several stories covered. We hear about the controversial repatriation of Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen who at age 15 was shot and captured by American Forces in Afghanistan after he had killed a US medic. After a decade at the US detention centre in Cuba, he is back in Canada.

We also learn about a new high-school course for students in Canada's northern territories of Nunavut, and the Northwest Territories. The course was carefully developed to look at a dark chapter in Canada's past when very young native children were taken from their homes to be taught at far away schools in what has since been realized as forced assimilation.

This week Canada spoke at the United Nations, and soundly criticized the organization.  We'll hear how young doctors are often greatly overworked. and also about the surprising amount of food that we simply throw away.

It's a very full show. We hope you like it.
