Keeping Canada Alive

In Vancouver, a daughter donates her kidney to her 81-year-old father and two heroin addicts visit a groundbreaking Downtown Eastside clinic to receive daily injections of prescription heroin. In Toronto, a deaf baby gets her cochlear implant activated and hears her mother’s voice for the first time, while a family doctor practices innovative ways to deliver healthcare to homebound patients. A Hamilton woman with metastasized colon cancer gets a pinpoint-accurate radiation treatment from a high-tech robot. And in the midst of a snowstorm, a new baby is delivered by C-section in one of the busiest maternity wards in Edmonton.
