Pauline Marois, whose Parti Quebecois formed a minority government in the 2012 election, is seeking a majority and has expressed optimism the PQ will form a government. Recent opinion polls, however, indicate the momentum is with Philippe Couillard's Liberals and give them a shot at taking power when the votes are counted.

Chances are this was always going to end badly for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Sure, the ninth-place team provided fans with a glimmer of hope after clawing back into the playoff race with back-to-back wins this week. But reality sunk in following a 4-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night.

Nurse practioners have more education then RNs and RNS have more education than an LPN.

A new study of kids between 3 and 5 in Boston in Toronto found cartoony pictures of animals in books acting like humans inhibit our kids' understanding of the natural world and their learning in general.

His car has now been impounded for seven days after his arrest for driving while prohibited.

HOUR ONE

It’s 1 World Trade Center like it’s never been seen before -- through a helmet camera worn by one of three skydivers who jumped from the top of the skyscraper in September. The footage, posted to YouTube, is breathtaking and maybe even a little too much to handle if one is afraid of heights. But the thrilling feat was not without consequences, the trio of skydivers and their lookout surrendered to authorities. They were arraigned Monday night and released on $3,500 bail.

Kids here are past snow days or wicked wind-chill days but out east, the kids they are lucky today. Their parents, probably not so stoked about what's going on with the weather, they're under a snowfall warning in all four provinces but Nova Scotia and PEI are supposed to see it the worst. Environment Canada says gusts could peak at 160 km/h and even higher in the notorious Wreckhouse area.

We go over your feedback on the text line.

HOUR TWO

The shovels are out in the Regina Pats dressing room as they try and find a way to dig out of the hole they've found themselves in.

This morning’s Talk Shot is brought to you by Jamie Nye, The Green Zone, the 4 o’clock hour and the end zone dance celebration.

Gormley joins to talk about the group of men who decided to base jump off 1 World Trade Centre, and the things we don’t think are crazy that others are terrified of.

Sometimes little kids pick up on things we don't want them to. Take bad words, for example. One funny kid demonstrates he's learned a few things over the years and without any hesitation, off the little boy goes. Some words are classic, some are new, some you might not have even heard of and most of them include the word 'butt!' This kid is definitely hilarious.

HOUR THREE

It’s time to play Stranger Than Fiction our favorite Wednesday game. Sam, Woodsy and Don read you three stories, two of them are made up and you have to guess which story is stranger than fiction.

Nine months after floodwaters swamped High River, town resident William Rader has reason to flash a million-dollar grin.

Some people are going to be mad. Some people are going to be sad. Some are going to be thrilled. The Regina Public School Board has a plan to deal with Connaught School.

Would you rather get a text with bad news immediately or wait a bit and get it over the phone or in person?

An Italian restaurant in Texas has sparked a heated debate about the right way to eat pizza by 'charging' $1,000 for a side of ranch dressing. The owner of Cane Rosso in Dallas says he likes keeping his food authentically Neapolitan, which means 'stay far away from the kind of Midwest-American tradition'. After the case was put up, customers seemed to get the hint and they mostly stopped asking. Is there a sauce you could not live without? Do you have any weird dipping habits?

New Glasgow Nova Scotia is not feeling the love it’s #198/201 places to live in Canada, #13 of 15 places to "move away from", and #1 of 8 worst places to move to.They're not too happy they say they're no worse than any other place.
