December 23, 2021

Last time on Canusa Street, Chris and Scotty spoke with Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston about the holiday tradition of sending a spruce to the City of Boston for its annual holiday tree display in Boston Commons. This episode, they speak with Commissioner of Boston Parks & Recreation Ryan Woods on the receiving end of that tree's historic journey. Special thanks to the City of Boston for additional provided audio at the beginning of the show!
