And in this month’s special true crime package, we have a profile of former Halifax cop Tom Martin (“Murder Watch”), who’s trying to bring justice to the families of unsolved murder victims.

The redesign we unveiled last month has prompted many of you to write in, and your feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
