Deep Dive – Toronto’s Multibillion Dollar Sky Park 5:08

Waste Watch - Subsidized South American Jazz for Canada 150 21:54

Global Affairs spent nearly $20,000 to send a Canadian jazz band on a South American tour, as part of celebrations meant to mark Canada 150. The average Canadian wouldn’t get to hear the tunes, but that didn’t stop the foreign service from forking over the cash.
