FIFA under fire for migrant workers in Qatar, turf wars in Women's World Cup, and EcoMyths

Eight laborers died while working on Brazil's World Cup stadiums. Estimates are that 4000 migrant or foreign workers will die before Qatar’s World Cup in 2022.. We’ll talk about the controversy with Fiona David, lawyer and executive director of Global Research for Walk Free Foundation. And, female soccer players from around the world are outraged that the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada will be played on artificial turf. Carrie Serwetnyk was the first woman inductee into the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame. She joins us to tell us what should be done to level the playing field. Then, for our regular EcoMyths segment, Kate Sackman of EcoMyths Alliance asks if it's better for food waste to go through the water system, or our landfills.
