President Obama Heads to Canada

President Barack Obama is planning to spend today with our neighbors to the north. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper will play host as Obama makes his first trip abroad since entering the Oval Office. The issues on their agenda include the economy and the environment. Those are potentially contentious topics, especially when it comes to energy production in the Midwest. Chicago Tribune's Michael Hawthorne has been following the story and joins us.

Music Button: Freddie Hubbard, "On The Real Side", from the CD On The Real Side, (Times Square records)
