Summary
  • The rise of the Occupy Movement: In September a group called Occupy Wall Street began a series of demonstrations in New York City. The movement began as a public protest against social and economic inequality and what the protestors call corporate greed. In October the movement spread to several Canadian cities. This story examines the Occupy movement and its plans to change the world
  • Canada's controversial crime bill: Canada's Conservative majority government has introduced a bill that would make major changes to the way justice is administered in this country. Bill C-10 would, among other things, stiffen penalties for young offenders and force judges to apply minimum mandatory sentences. This story examines why the bill is controversial, and travels to Texas to see how similar legislation has worked out in that U.S. state
  • The struggle to save Canada's farmland: Every year Canada loses thousands of acres of farmland. The land is lost when farmers give up farming or sell their land to developers. But now some Canadians are trying to fight back. This story focuses on a group of farmers in Ontario who thought they were selling their land to a big company so it could grow potatoes, only to discover it was to be turned into a quarry
  • Healing the invisible wounds of war: Canada recently ended its combat mission in Afghanistan. During the many years of fighting, more than 150 soldiers were killed, and thousands of others were wounded. But many who survived are suffering from the invisible wounds of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. This story looks at how new treatments are offering new hope to many of our young soldiers
