Toronto raccoons get the documentary treatment


Toronto raccoons are the subject of a soon-to-air CBC documentary called Raccoon Nation, and the Oscar buzz has begun already. Well, not really. But given that the filmmaker considers our fair city the "raccoon capital of the world," perhaps its only fair that this segment of the population get a closer examination. Written, directed and produced by Susan Fleming, the doc follows two York University researchers as they infiltrate and track the lives of five Toronto raccoons. Viewers can look forward to all-night infrared surveillance sessions and insights into the social dynamic of our favourite garbage pickers.

Raccoon Nation airs on Feb. 24 at 8 p.m.
