Friday: South Sudan relief effort, Quebec election panel, meat cleaver music, and more...


With war raging and the rainy season coming, the UN launches an emergency aid operation to get supplies to tens of thousands of people in South Sudan...The Quebec election campaign gets "Rocky" -- not like rocks, but like the boxing movie -- and our panel joins us to discuss whether the PQ's Pauline Marois or the Liberals' Phillippe Couillard will be the last one standing...and they just butcher every song. But that's perfectly natural when you're a British band paying tribute to a tradition called "rough music" -- which is played with meat cleavers.
