Glen & Percy on CBC

Percy and I had a brief spot on Living Calgary, in which I was asked to talk about a favorite area or element of Calgary. So I picked our neighbourhood of Sunnyside. If it sounds like I'm out of breath, it's because Percy was pulling on the leash through all six takes. Whenever the camera was off, he'd walk along beside me, and as soon as we'd start a take, he'd try to run. He's just a ham for any camera!

I'm happy that I was able to subtly work in a theme from Correction Road: borders that are formed by geographic and natural features, vs. those that are man-made boundaries.
