The Globe and Mail

The untold story of how Canada survived the financial crisis

It has been five years since Lehman Brothers' bankruptcy put the financial system on the brink of collapse. To get the inside story on Canada's journey through the storm, The Globe and Mail spent months interviewing the CEOs, central bankers and politicians who navigated the Canadian economy through the turbulent waters. A plain text version as it appeared in the print edition of Report on Business can be found here. To enhance the experience, the following interactive walks you through the same narrative, but adds a rich multimedia experience with audio, video and graphics. To get the full story, be sure to watch and listen to the clips.
