CBC is doing a series of stories on prostitution in St. John's this week. Our question: Should prostitution be decriminalized? Advocates say it would improve safety for sex workers. Ramona's guests were independent escort and sex workers' rights activist, Nikki Thomas. And Leslie Jeffrey, a professor at UNB in Saint John who's done extensive research on sex-trade policies in Canada. If you missed the show on air, listen in now for an intelligient, riveting discussion. 

Parks Canada explains why the washrooms at Cape Spear weren't opened up for visitors from a cruise ship. Glenn Keough is the Manager of National Historic Sites and Visitor Experience.
