  4. Mental Incompetence at Work - Sept 3, 2012

    Labour Day is usually a day lots of people are grateful for a day off. But imagine the trauma of being forced from a job you love because of the uncontrollable consequences of dementia, a degenerative disease that affects your mind.

  6. Robert Semrau: The Taliban Don’t Wave - Sept 4, 2012

    Wars don’t get much more confusing than the one that still shakes the ground in Afghanistan. You can’t tell enemy combatants from farmers. Battlegrounds lack front lines. Into that whirlwind stepped the Canadian army and with them Captain Robert Semrau. His second combat tour in 2008 became his last. Robert Semrau has written a book about his days serving with OMLeT, the operational mentor liaison team… an inside, provocative and sometimes gruesome account. He’s never spoken publicly about the incident that ended his military career, but today Robert Semrau shares his story. The Current from CBC Radio (Highlights)
