Season 2 kicks off with a 40-year celebration of the New Canadians Centre

Join us as we kick off Season 2 of 7 Questions Peterborough with a special segment recorded live at a 40-year anniversary gathering for the New Canadians Centre, an organization  committed to welcoming, inspiring and encouraging newcomers to this community. Andrew spent the afternoon interviewing a wide range of folks – from long-time loyal friends and partners to newcomers who have recently arrived in Peterborough.  We hope you enjoy this season opener as much as we loved meeting and speaking with the people who helped make this event so special.
