Want to get an idea of what an iron worker feels like on the job?

The CN Tower in Toronto is offering up the next best thing.

The tallest freestanding structure in Canada was built in the 1970s and many of the men involved were Mohawk iron workers.

APTN National News reporter Donna Smith talks to one worker who helped build the tower and another famous building in New York City.
