This week Gilda Salomone, and Terry Haig join Marc Montgomery to recap some of the stories that caught their attention.

First, the milestone that passed this week with no fanfare, the ending of the first commitment period of the Kyoto Accord designed to get countries to reduce greenhouse gas emmissions. However instead of a lessening of such emmissions, they've actually increased. We hear from a Canadian who is well versed in both the political situations -domestic and international- and the science of global warming and climate change.

Then, a Canadian who is already among the best sommeliers in the world, and who is set to compete for the world title..and you may be surprised at the vast amount of knowledge, skill, and diplomacy needed to be in this class.

We also hear about an exciting, wild, but also dangerous period in Canadian history, the Klondike gold rush.

Another report looks at a small Canadian city that seems to have all the right stuff to attract the data storage centres for major corporations.

And we also learn that some of children's best-loved animated characters are created here in Canada.

as always, I hope you enjoy the show, and don't hesitate to contact us with your thoughts.
