    “GENERATION XXX”

    Premiering Saturday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV GO, and CTVNews.ca, W5 investigates the devastating impact that readily accessible, hard-core online pornography is having on the minds and lives of young Canadian boys in “GENERATION XXX”. The stunning report has Senior Reporter Victor Malarek documenting one family’s struggle to help their pre-teen son break his all-consuming addiction to internet porn. In the evening’s second story, W5 examines the illegal use of fentanyl, a pain-killing drug reported to be 80 to 100 times more powerful than morphine. In a relatively short time on the black market, trade in Fentanyl has already claimed hundreds of lives across the country, and the numbers are rising daily. In “KILL PILL”, Co-Host and Correspondent Kevin Newman meets devastated families, a young man fighting his addiction, and police and medical professionals – all scrambling to deal with this burgeoning epidemic.

    "PREMIER: THE UNSCRIPTED KATHLEEN WYNNE"

    PREMIER: THE UNSCRIPTED KATHLEEN WYNNE provides a rare and private glimpse into the life of a public servant, from life at home with her partner Jane Rounthwaite, to highlighting the pivotal and sometimes controversial policies and plans enacted during Premier Wynne’s time in office. From crafting a budget that attempts to address Ontario’s $300 billion debt to unveiling her government’s plan to end sexual violence and harassment, the revealing documentary also chronicles the course of a Sudbury by-election which became the subject of a police investigation and is now before the courts.
