A bombing in Italy kills a teenage girl and a local bishop is booed by students who are tired of corruption and mafia-related violence. India's Rupee has fallen to its lowest level ever relative to the US dollar and India's Finance Minister blames the crisis in Greece. And -- Canada's lighthouses are dimming en masse. You have until the end of May to petition to take over ownership of any of the Federal Government's 500 surplus lighthouses. We visit one such iconic structure on the shore of Lake Winnipeg and hear some stories from those who want to save it.
