Questions for Canadians: TV shows

I'm writing a story that's set in the present-day US but has a Canadian aspect to it. For plot Reasons, I need to refer to two TV shows airing during the first half of 2013 in Canada:

- a current affairs show or documentary series that might devote all or part of an episode to a high-profile Canadian serial killer case
- a reality show about helping the RCMP solve crimes, giving details of the murders (and showing surveillance footage / re-enactments) and encouraging people to call in if they have info.

Thing is, googling isn't telling me if there are any such shows currently being broadcast in Canada. Wikipedia pointed me to the CBC's The Fifth Estate for current affairs, but I get the impression it's maybe too classy to cover an unsolved serial killer case for a whole hour? And for the crime show, nothing's standing out for me on this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Canadian_reality_television_series

So, any Canadians in this comm: can you help me out, please? I can make shows up if I have to, but I'd rather use real ones if they exist. Or if there's somewhere else I should ask, let me know.
