TOPIC – Rail transport safety.
INFO – As Transport Canada rolls out new rules designed to make rail transport safer, experts warn that weak data is leaving Canadian decision makers and the public without basic information on how safe railways are and what’s travelling along them, let alone what needs to change.
GUEST – Dr. Tarek Rajji, Chief of Geriatric Psychiatry at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, one of the lead investigators of study.
TOPIC – Alzheimer’s disease, and largest-ever grant for Alzheimer’s prevention in Canada.
INFO – The tragedy of Alzheimer’s disease is that once it takes hold in your brain, it doesn’t let go. There is no cure and while drug treatment can slow its progression by a few years, your brain will never fully recover.
