For many years I worked at CBC as a reporter, a documentary maker and host of The World at Six. But my love of stories began much earlier. From the time I was old enough to listen, my grandmother told me captivating tales of her life in Canada. I learned the power a story can hold for those who tell it – and the wisdom that can be found by those who truly listen.
