Tuesday Aug. 20th on The Morning News


We have a great interview for you before you get your motor runnin’ and head out on the highway. Sailor Jerry and Bikers For Autism have teamed up and are riding for the cause for 15 days from Vancouver to St. John’s along the TCH with a stop in Halifax. At 6:45 we’ll meet James Baker, the founder of BFA who just happens to be looking for adventure and whatever comes his way.

The Children and Youth in Challenging Contexts or CYCC is looking for mental health heroes.   These are young people who are willing to share their personal stories about facing mental health challenges – to ultimately help others.  At 7:15 we’ll talk with one of the organizers of this initiative.

At 7:45 we’ll talk back to school budgeting with our financial guru Leanne Salyzyn of Salyzyn & Associates. Leanne stops by the red table to tell us about the R’s, guidelines to help you stay in the black for back to school.

This week’s Foodie Tuesday brings together the ingredients of Ancient Greece: food & athletics. Chef Craig Flinn serves up a lamb-inspired dish with the help of three-time Olympian Karen Furneaux. Our Gold Medal Plate series continues at 8:15am!

At 8:45 we’ll take a look at race relations here in the city with Halifax Police’s Equity Diversity Officer Constable Shaun Carvery. He’s been working to improve relationships in the city between police and the black youth with the aim of trying to prevent a similar situation as the tragic events that unfolded in Missouri last week.
