Spiders and lots of them! Arachnophobia. It sounds like a scary movie. Brad Hubley is an expert on bugs. Brad joins Angelo to talk about our fear of spiders, and the world class spider exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum.

Minister of Natural Resources, John Yakabuski, joins Angelo for a discussion about his new role in the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. What does the Minister have planned for his first year in office?

Mercury Marine now offers a portable outboard motor with a detachable tiller assembly. The design allows for mounting on either side of the motor, and it’s adjustable for the operating height. Adrian Rushforth from Merc Marine joins Angelo with the story, and offers a preview of the 2019 line of motors.

On the Go Fish in Ontario segment, Lynn Barnier from Greening Bay Cottages and Marina, on Lake Nipissing, is Angelo’s guest. With the crazy cold weather, the lake is frozen. Ice fishing is just over a month away.

If I had a million dollars, would I cull the moose herd at Cape Breton Highlands National Park? Robert Howey from Parks Canada will join Angelo with an explanation on why the population reduction is necessary at a cost of $7900 a moose, and how the costs are approaching a million dollars!
