Good Morning! Ottawa is finally starting to feel a little like summer! Adam is still reading school books from the 19th century, so It’ll just be me in studio this week. As we have the past few weeks, we will revist a conversation we’ve had previously, this week featuring my interview with the authors of the Unexpected War, Eugene Lang and Janice Gross Stein, in the first hour. During hour two I’ll talk with Mark Watson, artistic director for the Thousand Islands Music Festival, which takes place this weekend in Ganonoque.
As always, we’ll focus on some of the following:
The mayor is not guilty. The judge did not rule on his mediocrity.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if the VIA trains ran faster? Chretien had a plan.

As in the past few weeks, we’ll sprinkle in some greatest hits. This week, in the second hour we will hear a conversation I had with Jeff Rubin a few weeks ago about his new book. In the first hour, we’ll go way back and hear a conversation I had with Tracy Kasaboski about her book, The Occupied Garden.
O’Brien verdict/inevitable appeal coming tomorrow!
BC at critical fire risk. More, from Canwest.
