New tonight: Rick Mercer Report on CBC – The Last Spike and drag racing

This week Rick is in Craigellachie, BC for the 125th anniversary of the driving of ‘the last spike’ that marked the completion of the cross-country railroad. He learns how to handle a train and gets a lesson in spike driving from the world champion. He also attends the 11th Annual Windsor Weekend drag race event at the Grand Bend Motorplex where he drives a souped-up dragster racer at breakneck speeds.
