Marine Atlantic Update

It looks like Marine Atlantic ferries may be able to sail again very soon. The company says that weather permitting, it will attempt a sailing out of Port aux Basques at 3 o'clock this afternoon. Tara Laing is with media relations at Marine Atlantic.


International Karaoke

There are more than a thousand international students at Memorial University, and of course they come from all over the world.  They're here in St. John's to get a Canadian university degree while improving their English, and learning about life in Canada.  But they also like to have fun.  That's why the Graduate Student Union holds an International Student Karaoke Night every once in a while. The students put down their textbooks, pick up the microphone, and belt out tunes like rock stars.  CBC freelancer Ashwin Gupta was there and brings us this report.
