Acadian Peninsula: Where Time Stood Still
Many of us wonder where Eldon came from. As it turns out, so does Eldon. While Sid and Idee are in New Brunswick, discovering the unique culture and geography of the Acadian Peninsula in New Brunswick, Eldon thinks he's finally found the answer. Meanwhile, at the Shippigan Aquarium and Marine Centre, our travelling twosome feed a baby seal and get up close to some the of strangest looking creatures of the deep – including a blue lobster! Next, they head to Caraquet, the unofficial capital of Acadia, and home to the Acadian Historical Village. There, Sid and Idee learn about the history and culture of the Acadian people and try their hand at life in the days of settlement. Then it's over to Miscou Island and Lameque to discover one of the main exports in New Brunswick – peat moss. Dr. Jean-Yves Daigle, Executive Director of the Peat Research and Development Centre, introduces them to a tree that is 2500 years old! His daughter Marianne gives Sid and Idee a lesson in the carnivorous plants that call peat bogs home. Has Eldon really discovered his roots, or is that just peat moss on the soles of his shoes? Find out on this episode of CG Kids.

Ottawa, Ontario
On a bright, winter day, Sid and Cat are racing beside the Ottawa River. Cat is in the lead with Sid close behind. Coming around a sharp bend, the path suddenly stops and they both almost tumble into the freezing river! Lucky for them they manage not to fall in, but there's another problem. They have to get across the river. Palmer interrupts to give them some good news. There's a bridge down river and if they follow his directions, he'll get them across. As they walk towards the bridge, Palmer tells them how important rivers were to the survival of the early First Nations and settlers. In the Ottawa area, many archaeological First Nation sites have been discovered along these waterways. Cat and Sid ask if they could visit them, but Palmer has a better idea. He says in Ottawa, there's a place where they can find tons of First Nation artifacts and if they go there, they'll get a chance to explore the lives of the First Nations. It sounds like a great idea to Sid and Cat, who have now reached the bridge and are about to cross. But the bridge has reminded Palmer of something else. Not only do rivers need bridges, but other things, like canals, can help too and it just so happens that Ottawa has an amazing one. The Rideau. With another great thing added to their "to do" list while in Ottawa, Sid and Cat cross over the bridge.

When Eldon decides to save money by drawing a map of Prince Edward County, Sid and Idee get lost and have to figure out how to get there on their own. Luckily, they find an advertisement for a historic cruise with Pete Ferri of the United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada, but their leisurely boat ride turns out to be a first-hand lesson in some of the hardships endured by early settlers of historic Adolphustown.

Then they meet 11-year-old Indigo, and Park Interpreter Casey Ringham, who take them to Sandbanks Provincial Park, where giant sand dunes slowly encroached on a town and buried some of it's buildings and farmland long ago. 14-year-old Kevin, a local treasure hunter and storyteller, digs for buried treasure along the Outlet River.

Quebec
Sid and Cat are having a wonderful time exploring beautiful Quebec City. It's just the kind of place that makes them want to stay put for a while. Palmer agrees it's brilliant, but points out that cities, like Quebec, just didn't appear out of nowhere. It took the Europeans a long time to make it what it is today. And it wasn't just the early settlers who struggled in finding a new place to live. Many First Nations, like the Huron, also went through a lot. Palmer tells them they're very close to a place called Wendake, where the Huron-Wendat Nation lives. If they go there, they'll be able to learn exactly what this First Nation group experienced to reach a final homeland.

Next, they square off over the terrifying white water of the Mattawa River, a Canadian Heritage river and original Trans Canada Highway. Bill Steer of the Canadian Ecology Centre gives them a lesson in the Canadian Voyageurs. Lastly they scale the dizzying heights of the fire lookout tower in the Petawawa Research Forest. Steve D'Eon, the forest manager shows them how some trees actually need forest fires, and then our fearless hosts battle a controlled forest fire with Forest Fire Crew Supervisor, Blair Kelly. It's daring and dramatic. Who will prevail? Who will run away, crying like a baby? Who will keep score? What do they win? What is Eldon's favourite rock band? These questions and more will be answered on this special edition CG Kids: Factory of Fear!
