CBC Coverage

Canada’s national broadcaster, the CBC, has been honouring the ride since it’s completion.

Their TV cameras were there at Cape Spear, capturing the final pedal in the team’s cross-Canada journey.

Watch, and read the piece, that has been covered in both Newfoundland, and on the Edmonton mini-site.

On Monday July 15, Bill was in-studio with Radio Noon host, Ramona Dearing, on the CBC Newfoundland and Labrador lunchtime show. Have a listen back to that interview.

Then later that same day he was on CBC Edmonton’s Radio Active show. The podcast from that show includes the interview (podcast available from the CBC for 3 months). You can also hear the interview Bill did the afternoon before the start of the ride.

Interview on CBC Edmonton & Victoria ahead of the ride

Whilst the final preparations were being made in Victoria, CBC Edmonton talked to Bill Werthmann, Hillary’s father, on their afternoon show Radio Active.

Or listen on the CBC website.

We’ve also now tracked down audio of the interview on All Points West hosted by Jo-Ann Roberts on CBC British Columbia, from the afternoon of Monday, May 6. Bill was joined by Chris Holt, Executive Co-Director of NEED2 in this interview on the CBC website.

(Note: In an earlier version of this post we had embedded audio players from the CBC. Due to an autoplay issue, we have decided to remove the embedded players, and now only have links to the two interviews.)
