The Vancouver Sun's Vaughn Palmer brings us the latest in news from Canada. Then, why do certain characters keep getting re–imagined over the decades? Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, Frankenstein, King Arthur, Robin Hood: Why do these oldies but goodies stick around? Film critic Robert Horton takes that up. Then Reuters finance editor Al Scott discusses the nation's economic climate.
