    Must-be Married, Windsor Protests, N.S. Shakespeare Heir, Visual Allergies, and Guitar Duo

    This week: We interview the mayor of the Iowa town that is trying to pass a law that all residents over 21 years of age must be married. Our international correspondent Chris Redman joins us live from Windsor, Ontario to tell us why thousands of people have taken to the streets. We talk with a Nova Scotia man who believes that he is the rightful heir to the estate of William Shakespeare. Peter Oldring profiles Emily Stuart, a third year student at the University of Nanaimo who suffers from ‘visual allergies’. Pat Kelly speaks with Canada’s fastest finger-pickin’ duo, Stan and Kip Hedgeman. Plus, we play your calls in reaction to a story we ran last week about a Hamilton educator who refuses to award students a mark of 100%.
