Radio Noon - February 2, 2011

Please click on the story title to listen.


The situation in Egypt is still volatile. Opponents and supporters of President Hosni Mubarak are holding rallies today. In same cases, throwing stones at each other. Here in St. John's, Egyptian Canadians are holding a rally at Memorial University. Mohammed Sarhan, is from Egypt but he's been in Newfoundland since 2006. He's doing his PhD in immunology at MUN. He's at the rally and he joins me now
Winter will last another 6 weeks. Today is groundhog day. And both Shubenacadie Sam and Wireton Willie saw their shadows this morning. And that means ... lots more winter. But according to local folklorist Philip Hiscock, the groundhog wasn't always the predictor of winter weather ... it was the bear. Philip Hiscock joins me now.  
We want to know what you're seeing drivers do out there on the roads. Especially stuff that bothers you now that we've finally moved into winter. My guests in studio are Constable Dennis Hann of RCMP Traffic Services in Clarenville. And Constable Doug Barrett of the RNC's Traffic Enforcement Section.What examples of bad driving are you seeing out there on our roads?
