The Wednesday Edition: Conrad Black, Lost Peter Sellers Films, Post Office Changes, Scott Jones, and more

Listen

Tonight:

Back to Black. He's renowned for his sensitivity to slander -- but tonight, Lord Conrad Black explains why he didn't challenge Mayor Rob Ford's remarks about a journalist and Toronto's police chief.
 
A partial Post mortem. Canada Post announces the slow death of door-to-door delivery in urban centres -- to the consternation of mail carriers and customers alike. 

A Sellers market. A British film festival announces it will be showing two long-lost films starring the late, great Peter Sellers -- and co-written by the late, great Mordecai Richler. 

Savaged, but not silenced. Two months ago, Scott Jones, who is openly gay, was brutally attacked in Nova Scotia -- and now, from his wheelchair, he's speaking out for the first time. 

Unembraceable you. LGBT activists are horrified when India reinstates a nineteenth century law that criminalizes gay sex. 

And...if you fail to plan, you plan to flail. The sign-language interpreter at the Nelson Mandela Memorial gets a million thumbs down for his work -- because it appears that he was just making it up as he went. 

As It Happens, the Wednesday edition. Radio that figures on the one hand, he was wrong -- and on the other hand, he was also wrong.
