The Current

The Current, hosted by Matt Galloway, is a meeting place of perspectives, ideas and voices, with a fresh take on issues that affect Canadians today. The Current's team of journalists — based in every major region of the country — think locally and globally. They don't just talk about the issues. They poke and prod them and look at them from new angles, shedding light on what needs to be exposed and taking delight in the surprising twists and turns stories can take.
