Radio Active host Adrienne Pan looked into what the experience has been like for seniors booking and going to their vaccine appointments.

CBC provincial affairs reporter Janet French crunches some of the numbers in the latest budget from the UCP government.

Plus, The Loop producer and sound tech Clare Bonnyman listens closely to the sounds of winter, and we discuss whether the province needs an official sport — and if rodeo is the best pick.
