Hour 2 of Ottawa Now for Mon. February 26th, 2024

View descriptionShare

You’ve heard of competitive swimming, and you’ve probably heard of speed-skating. But what about ‘ice swimming’? Believe it or not, it’s a real thing, and there’s a worldwide competition to back it up. In fact, we have an ice swimmer right here in Canada’s Capital! His name is Tom Heyerdahl, and we get to know his story in Hour 2. Meantime, a new study by local researchers shows that only half of Ottawa’s dying residents had received palliative care in their final 3 months of life. How much of that blunder leans on the failure to better predict Ottawa’s aging trends? Kristy Cameron chats with Dr. Amy Hsu, a researcher at the Bruyère Research Institute and the study’s lead author.
