Welcome to show #34...
This week, Lynn Desjardins and Marc Montgomery present several subjects of interest.
We start off with a very important, but strangely not well-known anniversary in Canada. We just had our national flag day on February 15th, the 48th anniversary of our distinct red maple leaf flag  and we'll hear from Rick Archbold author of the book and blog "A flag for Canada".

There is also growing concern over the effects of climate change on the survivability of polar bears, Lynn will present an interview with a polar bear expert from the University of Alberta.

and later, a new radio telescope will be built in Canada, one of the most precise in the world, and it will not be expensive as it will incorporate common cell phone and video game technology. Its called the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment, or CHIME.

and with the announcement of the Pope's retirement, we take a quick look at the three Canadian Cardinals and the chances for one of them to become Pope.

And we also read  some of your comments that  we've recieved this week.   I hope you enjoy listening and as always please send us your comments.
