New Toronto aquarium drawing big crowds

One of Toronto’s newest tourist attractions is making a big splash. Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada opened a few months ago in the city’s downtown. During the recent March school break, the aquarium was swamped by thousands of eager kids, many of whom might never get this close to some of the marine life they saw there. WBFO's Dan Karpenchuk went to have a look.

WBFO’s comprehensive news coverage extends into Southern Ontario and Dan Karpenchuk is the station’s voice from the north. The award-winning reporter covers binational issues, including economic trends, the environment, tourism and transportation.
