This past week, Carmel Kilkenny, Terry Haig, and Gilda Salomone all filled in at various times but presenting the show today are Marc Montgomery and Wojtek Gwiazda.

We start out with a look at the just released federal budget for Canada. It's not quite the controversial budget presented last year when many unrelated bills were lumped in with the budget in a so-called 'omnibus budget", but of course no budget is without some controversy

Next, while piracy is not making the news right now, it's still going on. What's not widely known is that up to one-third of the priates are youngsters.  A Canadian organization is working on ways to end the recruiment of children and to rehabilitate those who are arrested.

We then meet two very interesting people. First a man in Alberta who is a professional endurance athlete. At age 57, he's busy with performing rather amazing physical challenges to raise money for charity.  Secondly, as Fashion Week ends in Toronto, we meet a woman who's making a name internationally in fashion, and who has designed fashions for people in wheelchairs and for the handicapped.

As always we hope you'll enjoy these stories and we do love to get your feedback!
