Today's show: Canada's new privacy bill, alternative treatment for opioid addictions, Edmonton loses its World Cup bid & the first plants grown in moon dirt
On today's show, a new federal privacy bill has been introduced to try and protect your personal data online. We chat with Dr. Tom Keenan, a professor in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape at the University of Calgary and author of the best-selling book Technocreep to find out if it's possible to even enforce Bill C-27. Plus, a new study shows there's an alternative to methadone for those addicted to opioids. We find out more from Dr. Ron Lim, an addiction specialist and associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at the University of Calgary, who co-authored a research paper on a new model of treatment for opioid use disorder. Also, we chat with Dan Mason, a professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation at the University of Alberta, after Edmonton lost its bid to host the 2026 World Cup. And Dr. Anna-Lisa Paul, a research professor in horticultural sciences and director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research at the University of Florida, tells us about the first plants to be grown in moon dirt.
