  • 20:00Interview with West Vancouver-based composer Lloyd Burritt about his new chamber opera, Miracle Flight 571, which premieres in Vancouver on Sunday and next year in Toronto.

  • 35:45 — Interview with Micheal Vonn (policy director, BC Civil Liberties Association) on the next steps now that Bill C-51, the controversial anti-terrorism bill, has passed into law — and why it should concern Canadians not only for its sweeping powers and unconstitutional amendments, but even from a national security perspective it may put us at risk, she argues.
  • 49:50 — Interview with Tim Harper (national affairs columnist, The Toronto Star), about the Senate expenses scandal, a new scathing report, and the latest surprises in the Mike Duffy trial. He argues in his latest column that the Senate is now faced with a watershed change-or-die moment.
