GroundWire Feb 29 | Homelessness in Canada special episode
This episode is GroundWire's contribution to the 14th annual Homelessness Marathon, originally aired across the country on February 23rd/24th.  (Note that we added the feature from CKDU after the marathon aired).

This episode of GroundWire was produced on traditional Mi'kmaq territory in Halifax, Nova Scotia, hosted by Mat Wilush.
