SEVEN WONDERS OF CANADA: This summer the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation organized a contest to come up with the Seven Wonders of Canada. Canadians were invited to submit their nominations, and they responded in overwhelming numbers. More than 18 000 nominations were received and hundreds of thousands of Canadians voted for their choices. For this News in Review story we will look at the contest and how a panel of judges came up with their Seven Wonders.
TONY BLAIR'S TEN YEARS IN POWER: In late June Tony Blair stepped down as Prime Minister of Britain. Blair is considered by many to have been one of Britain's most successful prime ministers. In recent years, however, his popularity had slumped mainly because of his support for the U.S.-led war in Iraq. In this News in Review story we will take a close-up look at Blairs decade in power and how he left his mark on Britain and the world.
OMAR KHADR : CANADIAN IN GUANTANAMO: Omar Khadr is a young Canadian who is being held at the U.S. detention camp for suspected terrorists in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Khadr was just 15 years old when he was captured by U.S. forces in 2002, while fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan. He is accused of killing an American soldier with a hand grenade. This News in Review story reviews the case of Omar Khadr and how a Canadian teenager became a child soldier in Afghanistan.
