The Ministry of Natural Resources is sending more personnel to the forest fire fight in Alberta. Another 102-fire staff are expected to leave Wednesday; replacing some of those who have been in the western province for the past two weeks. 85 of the 190 Ontario personnel now in Alberta are expected to return later this week.

Moammar Gadhafi's rope continues to fray, that's the opinion of Lakehead University Political Science expert Laure Paquette.  She says Gadhafi has asked for a truce to stop NATO Bombing but rebels have already rejected it because it would take away their biggest advantage.  Paquette says it's taking longer than anyone expected but it does appear that the end is near for Gadhafi.
