abstract
A COMMUNITY FIGHTS GANGS AND GUNS: Although crime rates in Canada have been going down, gang violence has been increasing. In many Canadian cities young gang members with guns have become a deadly problem. They are not only killing each other, but sometimes innocent people are caught in the crossfire. We'll look at how gangs and guns turned an Alberta community into a war zone and how the community fought back.
AMERICANS CHOOSE A NEW PRESIDENT: On November 4, Americans went to the polls to choose a new president. The vote came after a long and bitterly contested campaign between the Democratic candidate Barack Obama and Republican candidate John McCain. We'll look at the campaign and what happened when voting day finally arrived.
CANADA AND THE ECONOMIC MELTDOWN: In early October, a global credit crunch that began in the United States spread to Canada. Stocks plunged, and many Canadians began to worry about their savings and whether the country was heading for a recession. We'll look at what caused the credit crunch and how it could affect the Canadian economy.
THE PUSH TO GROW MORE FOOD IN CANADA: Thanks to modern transportation Canadians can enjoy fruits and vegetables from all over the world. But as the amount of foreign produce continues to increase, the amount of home-grown fruits and vegetables has been going down. We'll look at how one community in Ontario is trying to reverse that trend by getting people to "buy local."
