Bill Barry's decision to drop out of the PC leadership race has left Frank Coleman as the only remaining candidate for the job. With Coleman poised to become the next PC leader and Premier of Newfoundland, On Point looks at the campaign that Barry ran and his decision to drop out.

Also, the provincial government is working on passing a bill that it says would create more youth engagement in politics. Bill 6 would allow town councils to appoint non-voting youth members to their councils. Some people say this is not the best way to get youth interested in politics. A panel featuring Craig Pollett, Donovan Taplin and Steve Kent discusses the issue.

And finally, On Point looks at whether the federal government should give the province more control over the shrimp fishery.
