NAOMI KLEIN - Author of The Shock Doctrine

On June 22, 1985, Air India 182 left Montreal, bound for New Delhi. Four hours after takeoff, a bomb ripped through the baggage compartment, killing all 329 people on board. It was the most deadly act of air terrorism in history before 9/11. The film counts down the final weeks and hours before Air India 182 disappeared off Irish radar screens and we sleepwalked into the era of international terrorism.
This documentary is airing tonight on the CBC at 8:00 PM. For more information on the flim, visit http://airindia182.com/.
This is a promotion spot for the new documentary "This Can Happen To You," with Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter.
Dr. Carter takes on the Canadian justice system in this fast-paced look into the case of wrongly convicted banker Ronald Dalton. Carter and Dalton spent more than 30 years in prison between them for crimes they did not commit.
This Can Happen to You is written and directed by Peter Thurling (Floating Over Canada) and produced by Joan Schafer, for Red Car Productions. It was made under contract for CBC-TV, with participation of the CTF, Canada film production tax credit and OFTTC.
Hidden penalties, sudden interest rate hikes, deceptive language -- those are just some of the abusive practices of credit card companies that Congress is trying to stop.
Consumer advocates applauded last week's committee votes on two historic bills to reign in the industry. But before a final bill reaches Obama's desk, there could be months more haggling -- one last chance for card company lobbyists to delay or kill the reforms.
