Thursday: Ford video, Pussy Riot update, Quebec Charter, no splash pee and more...

Listen

Tonight:

Fording the video stream? Toronto's mayor apologizes yet again -- this time over a clip that shows him jumping up and down, swearing, and threatening violence.

The company he keeps. One of Rob Ford's council colleagues is critical of the men he consorts with -- and their criminal pasts.

Separatism and church and state. Quebec's P-Q government introduces its secular charter legislation, that would bar bureaucrats from wearing most religious symbols.

Vanished into the Gulag? The Canadian-Russian husband of a jailed member of the band Pussy Riot hasn't been able to reach his wife for more than two weeks.

Spies on the other side of the camera. The heads of Britain's GCHQ and MI-6 testify in front of a Parliamentary committee.

And this is one invention that's making no splash at all. A group of students in Utah come up with a special toilet that promises to eliminate the mess that sometimes ensues when men pass water.

As It Happens, the Thursday edition. Radio that wonders whether minding the pee will lengthen the queue.
