A new Ontario Liberal leader will be chosen in March and all six candidates held their first campaign debate on Sunday afternoon in Guelph. In a multi-part series, Steve Paikin has been looking at how the contenders have been lining up their key endorsements. Former cabinet minister Kate Graham has reached out to Lyn McLeod, the first female leader of the Ontario Liberals, for high-profile support. Michael Coteau’s meeting with Robert Nixon, now 91, resulted in favourable reviews from the former Liberal leader. And Hugh Segal, a former chief of staff to both Progressive Conservative prime minister Brian Mulroney and Progressive Conservative premier Bill Davis, is endorsing Alvin Tedjo. Later today, Paikin will post his take on endorsements for Mitzie Hunter, and tomorrow, Steven Del Duca. The sixth candidate, Brenda Hollingsworth, has not yet received a high-profile endorsement.

10 p.m. — The Nile: 5,000 Years of History
