Coming up this weekend on the Weekend Morning News


Saturday Morning News

As campsites around B.C. fill-up for the Victoria Day long weekend, wildlife safety experts are reminding people to be vigilant  and avoid unwanted encounters. In our first hour, Meg Toom from Wildsafe BC shares tips on how to protect your property and well being, whether at home or out in the wild. She will also show viewers Wildsafe BC’s interactive WARP map, which displays the most recent information on wildlife encounters around the province.

At 8:20 a.m., our Saturday Chef Lee Parsons is making a savoury sorbet. Using tomatoes and herbs, the Windset Farms chef will demonstrate how to make the cool treat that’s bound to impress guests at your next barbeque.

In our final hour, we get a special visit from some furry friends. Five puppies, bred to be BC Guide Dogs, will be taking over our set. We’ll learn about their breeding and training programs, as well as ways viewers can get involved.

Coming up in Connected Life, we learn about a remarkable new device designed to help people who suffer from migraines. As Bradley Shende explains, the headband works by sending an electrical current to the trigeminal nerve, right at the temple. The current changes  the sufferer’s trigger threshold, making it harder to reach and the headaches less painful, or causing them to disappear entirely.

At 8:40 a.m., Certified Home Inspector James Dobney takes your questions in our Ask an Expert segment. James also has a list of maintenance tips for homeowners, to ensure your property has not sustained any damage over the winter months.

In our final hour we are sipping cider. Darryl Lamb, Legacy Liquor Store’s Brand Manager, has six varieties to show off. From adding new flavours to going organic, Darryl explains what sets certain recipes above the rest.
