Political panel - Shea Slips Out, Duffy Dodges, and PEI PC Shuffles

The Tories on PEI including one who's trying to prove he actually lives on the Island continue to dominate the news. Senator Mike Duffy unsuccessfully tried to avoid reporters' questions about his residency by leaving through the kitchen exit. Gail Shea left the House minutes before a crucial vote on Employment Insurance. And it appears the provincial Conservatives may have worked through their leadership issues. With their thoughts on these stories, we're joined in the studio by Publisher Paul MacNeill and Charlottetown Lawyer Mary Lynn Kane, and Lawyer Nancy Key is in Summerside.
