* Dalton McGuinty. Two Liberal heavyweights - PEI Premier Robert Ghiz, and political strategist Warren Kinsella - reflect on the Ontario Premier's decision to step down.
* Geoengineering Folo. Those behind the controversial dumping of tonnes of iron sulfate off the coast of Haida Gwaii say they have regenerated their salmon fishery.
* Amanda Todd Investigation. A child protection charity confirms that the B.C. teenager was lured into exposing herself online, in the years before she killed herself.
* Ohio Voter Billboard. An Ohio Senator warns that giant billboards are being used to block underprivileged voters from exercising the democratic rights.
* Shauna Singh Baldwin. A feature interview with the author of "The Selector of Souls" - about two women in India, dealing with institutionalized sexism and misogyny.
Is the Party over? After the resignation of Dalton McGuinty, we'll speak with one of two Liberal Premiers still standing: Prince Edward Island's Robert Ghiz.
Goodbye, Queen's Park -- hello, House of Commons. Ontario Liberal strategist Warren Kinsella talks about the possible federal aspirations of the soon-to-be-former Ontario premier.
They're Anonymous -- but he isn't. The hacker group claims it's found the man who was blackmailing a teenager who committed suicide -- and publishes his name.
FYI: For Your Intimidation. In the swing state of Ohio, new billboards target voter fraud -- but some people say the ads are actually targeting certain voters.
A sprinkling of doubt. Environmentalists are horrified by a geo-engineering project involving a hundred tonnes of iron sulphate powder being deposited in the Pacific -- but the man responsible says it's already working wonders.
And...scents and nonsense. For the new Chanel No. 5 commercial starring Brad Pitt to seem at all coherent, it's possible that you have to drink a bottle of the stuff.
As It Happens, the Tuesday edition. Radio...unicorns...the future.
If you want to be the leader of a Liberal Party in Canada, your chances have probably never been better.
With the resignation of Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty yesterday, the Liberals are currently looking for leaders in six provinces -- as well as federally. The Liberal Parties in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador are all leaderless.
And B-C Premier Christy Clark is currently fighting to survive a provincial election next May. Which leaves one last Liberal leader standing on solid ground.
Robert Ghiz is the Premier of Prince Edward Island. We reached him in Charlottetown.
And, in case you were wondering, Premier Ghiz is the ripe old age of thirty-eight.
Warren Kinsella is a veteran McGuinty supporter. We reached the longtime Liberal strategist in Toronto.

ayperson, it sure doesn't sound like a good idea.
Yesterday on the program, we told you about a controversial geoengineering project off the coast of Haida Gwaii, British Columbia. A hundred tonnes of iron sulfate were dumped into the Pacific, creating an plankton bloom that might -- in theory -- absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and attract salmon and other marine life to the area.
Critics allege the project contravenes international moratoria on dumping and geoengineering to which Canada is a signatory. But the development corporation behind the project, which is funded by a village on Haida Gwaii, says the benefits are already apparent.
John Disney is the president of the Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation and the economic development officer for the Old Massett Village Council. We reached him in Old Massett, BC.

And now, our Sound of the Day.
We all make mistakes when we're twelve -- mistakes that are quickly forgiven and forgotten.
But Amanda Todd's mistake wasn't forgotten.
In the video the teenager made before she killed herself, she said that, when she was in Grade Seven, she flashed her breasts to someone online -- and that person later tried to blackmail her with the images.
Now the hacker group Anonymous says it knows who that person is. Yesterday, the group released a video naming a thirty-year-old man in New Westminister, B.C. Here is part of Anonymous's online message.
The RCMP say they are aware of the video and may follow up on it.
The police also received information about images of Amanda Todd last year. The website cybertip.ca passed on the information. Signy Arnason is the director of the child protection charity and we reached her in Winnipeg.

It's less than a month until the U.S. Presidential election, and the fight is on for every vote. And in one swing state, the battle may have gone beyond fighting for votes.
Ohio State Senator Nina Turner says that a new billboard campaign is aimed at scaring some voters out of exercising their democratic rights. Senator Turner is the Democratic Whip in the Ohio Legislature. We reached her in Columbus.

"I achieved my goal."
Coming from any successful businessman announcing his retirement, those words are pretty banal. But when the announcement comes from Quebec's construction magnate, Tony Accurso, there is nothing banal about it.
Tony Accurso has been arrested twice. He has been charged with conspiracy, influence peddling, fraud, two counts of defrauding the government and breach of trust. And today he announced he's leaving the business world altogether.
Alain Gravel is the host of Enquete, the Radio-Canada investigative journalism program that has been reporting on the corruption and collusion in Quebec's construction industry for more than three years now. We reached him in Montreal.

If I tell you a novel is about a social issue, you might be wary. And if I tell you that the novel in question is, in part, about sex selection in India -- the problem of killing female fetuses and infant girls -- you might be inclined to pick up the latest James Patterson instead.
But wait. The novel I'm talking about is also gripping and nuanced, and full of colourful characters -- including two women whose lives come together in an unexpected way.
The book is called "The Selector of Souls". And the author, Shauna Singh Baldwin, joins Carol later tonight for a feature interview. Here's a short excerpt: Carol asking Ms. Baldwin about one of the main characters, Damini -- a lower-caste woman who takes a job with disturbing implications.
