Here & Now Monday September 23 2019


>>Announcer: THIS IS CBC “HERE & NOW.” (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>SAW A FEW FLASHES OF LIGHT FROM ACROSS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY AND THEN YOU SEE THE BIG MOOSE FIRST. AND THEN WE NEVER SAW THAT SECOND ONE.>>Anthony: SHOCKING DASHCAM FOOTAGE OF A MOOSE-VEHICLE ACCIDENTS AND THE OCCUPANTS WALKED AWAY WITH ONLY MINOR INJURIES.>>>GOOD EVENING, WE BEGIN WITH A WORKPLACE ACCIDENT AT A MINE NEAR THE LABRADOR BORDER, AN ACCIDENT THAT KILLED ONE MAN AND INJURED ANOTHER. IT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT IN A TUNNEL AT THE MOUNT WRIGHT MINE IN FER MONTH. “HERE & NOW’S” JACOB BARKER REPORTS.>>Reporter: IT WAS A MAN IN HIS 30s THAT WAS FOUND UNDERWATER AT THE MINE SITE LAST NIGHT, AND ACCORDING TO QUÉBEC’S WORKPLACE SAFETY BOARD, TWO MEN WERE WORKING INSIDE OF A TUNNEL WHEN WATER CAME RUSHING THROUGH AND WASHED THE MEN AWAY. A SECOND MAN WAS ALSO INJURED IN THE INCIDENT. WE’RE NOT SURE OF THE EXTENT OF THOSE INJURIES BUT WE ARE TOLD THAT THEY’RE NOT LIFE THREATENING. THE MOUNT WRIGHT MINE IS ACROSS THE LABRADOR BORDER IN FERMONT, QUÉBEC, AND NEAR THE SCULLY MINE IN WABUSH. THESE ARE CLOSE COMMUNITIES WITH PEOPLE FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE WORKER WORKING AND SHOPPING IN THE OTHER TOWNS, BUT WE DON’T KNOW THE IDENTITY OF EITHER MAN INVOLVED IN THE ACCIDENT OR WHERE THEY WERE FROM. THE MINE IS OPERATED FROM A COMPANY CALLED ARCELORMITTAL. THE INVESTIGATORS ARE THERE WORKING TO RECONSTRUCT THE ACCIDENT. WELL, IT ISN’T CLEAR HOW THIS HAPPENED AND WHY THAT WATER CAME RUSHING THROUGH THE TUNNEL WHILE THOSE WORKERS WERE INSIDE. THE COMPANY HAS SUSPENDED ALL OF ITS OPERATIONS. IT SAYS TO ENSURE WORKER SAFETY, AND IT TOLD OUR COLLEAGUES AT RADIO-CANADA IT WANTS TO UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE RESUMING OPERATIONS. JACOB BARKER, CBC NEWS, HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY.>>Anthony: WELL, IT ALL HAPPENS IN JUST A MILLISECOND — DASHCAM VIDEO FROM OUTSIDE OF ST. JOHN’S SHOWS JUST HOW FAST A COLLISION WITH A MOOSE CAN BE. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. JASON SPURRELL SHARED THIS VIDEO WITH CBC NEWS AND HE SAW THAT FIRST MOOSE DART ON THE HIGHWAY AS HE WAS DRIVING ALONG LAST NIGHT. BUT AS YOU SEE AGAIN HE DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE, THE SECOND ONE. THE AIRBAGS INFLATED AND LUCKILY SPURRELL AND HIS PASSENGER ONLY HAD MINOR INJURIES. I’M GOING TO SPEAK WITH JASON SPUREL IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES.>>>THIS NEXT CAR LOOKS LIKE IT WAS IN A MOOSE ACCIDENT. THE WINDSHIELD IS WRECKED AND THE ROOF IS CAVED IN, BUT IT WASN’T AN ANIMAL AT ALL. AND IT WASN’T A ONE OFF. “HERE & NOW’S” KATIE BREEN EXPLAINS.>>Reporter: WHEN YOU DRIVE YOUR CAR ON TO THE FERRY, YOU PROBABLY THINK NOTHING OF IT. YOU GO UPSTAIRS TO THE PASSENGER DECK, MAYBE HAVE A COFFEE. AND YOU THINK THAT IT’S SAFE DOWN THERE. MOST OF THE TIME IT IS. BUT NOT ALWAYS. THIS IS HOW ONE DRIVER FOUND HER CAR ON SATURDAY. TOTALLY CAVED IN. A ROGUE WAVE IS APPARENTLY TO BLAME. THE CAR OWNER WAS COMING BACK FROM BELL ISLAND ON THE FLANDERS, THE OLDER OF THE TWO FERRIES ON THE RUN. SHE SAYS THAT THE RIDE WASN’T REALLY ALL THAT CHOPPY. SHE HAD TAKEN THE FERRY IN WORSE CONDITIONS AND SHE DEFINITELY WASN’T WORRIED ABOUT HER CAR. THE BOAT DOCKED AND SHE HEADED DOWNSTAIRS AND OVER TO THE DRIVER SIDE OF HER CAR AND ABOUT TO GET IN WHEN SHE SAW HER SHINY 2017 SEDAN WAS ALL SMASHED UP. HER CAR WAS TAKEN OFF THE BOAT AND SHE SAYS THAT SHE WAS LEFT IN THE POURING RAIN. THE FERRY JUST LOADED BACK UP AND CARRIED ON. THE CAR IS AT AN AUTO BODY SHOP NOW AND THE PEOPLE INSIDE OF THE GARAGE SAYS THAT IT’S NOT THE FIRST CAR TO FALL VICTIM TO A BIG WAVE. THEY HAPPENED WITH THREE OTHERS THROUGH THE YEARS. WHEN ASKED HOW OFTEN THIS HAPPENS, THEY GAVE EXAMPLES WHEN FERRIES HAD BEEN DAMAGED BY UNRULY WATER, AND NOT THE PASSENGER VEHICLES. IN A STATEMENT THE DEPARTMENT SAID THAT ROGUE WAVES ARE RARE AND UNPREDICTABLE. AND IT SAID THAT THE VEHICLE DECK ON THE FLANDERS ISN’T ENCLOSED AND THAT CARS PARKED THERE ARE OPEN TO THE ELEMENTS. THE GOVERNMENT SAYS THAT INSURANCE TYPICALLY COVERS THE REPAIR COST BUT THE OWNER OF THE LATEST CAR CASUALTY IS STILL WAITING TO HEAR BACK. PASSENGERS ARE REQUIRED TO GET OUT OF THEIR CARS BEFORE THE FERRY LEAVES THE DOCK. THE DRIVER WHOSE CAR WAS DAMAGED ON SATURDAY SAYS THAT SHE’S HAPPY THAT SHE DID. HEAR HAIRDRESSER WAS ON BELL ISLAND AND NOW SHE’S IN THE MARKET FOR A NEW ONE BECAUSE SHE SAYS THAT SHE’LL NEVER GO BACK TO BELL ISLAND AGAIN. KATIE BREEN, CBC NEWS, PORTUGAL COVE-ST. PHILIP’S.>>Ashley: SO FALL OFFICIALLY ARRIVED EARLIER THIS MORNING. BUT THESE TEMPERATURES FEELING, WELL, STILL A LITTLE BIT MORE SUMMER-LIKE. SITTING IN THE TEENS FOR MOST OF US, 19° IN GANDER AND 17° IN ST. JOHN’S AND 11° IS THE HOTSPOT IN HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY. AND NAIN IS SITTING AT 11° TODAY. NOW WE ARE IN FOR A LITTLE BIT OF A CHANGE. WE DO HAVE SOME SHOWERS THAT ARE GOING TO MOVE THROUGH AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NIGHT TONIGHT. BUT IT DOES LOOK LIKE THE CLEARING — THE TREND IS TO CLEAR AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW. AND THEN A LITTLE BIT OF ANOTHER SYSTEM IS MOVING IN. I’LL HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS COMING UP. (♪♪♪)>>Reporter: TOMORROW ON “HERE & NOW” –>>WE BUILT OUR STREETCAR SYSTEM AT THE SAME TIME AS SAN FRANCISCO AND BOSTON AND NEW YORK.>>Reporter: THE STREETCARS OF ST. JOHN’S WERE A MARVEL OF THEIR DAY, A MASS TRANSIT SYSTEM ON PAR WITH THE WORLD’S GREATEST CITIES. NOW AUTHOR KENNESS PERRIOT IS BRINGING THE STREETCARS BACK TO LIFE IN A NEW BOOK.>>IT WAS MARVELOUS, IT WAS WONDERFUL. CITIZEN HIS NOT SEEN THE LIKE OF IT BEFORE.>>Reporter: TAKE A RIDE BACK IN TIME TOMORROW ON “HERE & NOW.”>>Anthony: SOME GREAT HISTORY TO CATCH ON TOMORROW’S PROGRAMME. BUT NOW LET’S HEAD OUT TO FLATROCK WHERE THE FAMILY OF A YOUNG GIRL IN A WHEELCHAIR IS SHOWING APPRECIATION FOR THE COMMUNITY THAT HELPED TO RAISE MONEY FOR A NEW VEHICLE. “HERE & NOW’S” CAROLYN STOKES IS THERE RIGHT NOW. SO, CAROLYN, WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING?>>Carolyn: WELL, ANTHONY THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN A COMMUNITY COMES IT OTHER AND RALLIES BEHIND A FAMILY IN NEED. THIS IS A WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE VAN. THE HILLIER FAMILY WAS ABLE TO PURCHASE THIS VAN THANKS TO $67,000 IN DONATIONS. AS YOU CAN SEE RIGHT HERE IT SAYS “PRINCESS ON BOARD.” AND WE’RE GOING TO MEET THAT PRINCESS RIGHT NOW AND THE STAR OF THE FUNDRAISER, WHEELS FOR JESS, THIS IS JESS. SHE’S 11 YEARS OLD AND HE HAS RHETT’S SYNDROME WHICH IS A RARE BRAIN DISORDER WHICH IS WHY SHE’S IN THE WHEELCHAIR AND WHY THIS VAN IS SO IMPORTANT FOR HER AND HER FAMILY. AND THIS IS HER PARENTS, JUANITA AND JUSTIN. AND INSIDE OF THIS COMMUNITY CENTRE TONIGHT THEY’RE HOLDING A GET-TOGETHER FOR THE COMMUNITY. IT’S KIND OF LIKE A THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED TO HELP TO PURCHASE THIS VAN. SO, FIRST OF ALL, CAN YOU SHOW US HOW IN WORKS.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>Carolyn: NICE.>>THE RAMP IS AUTOMATIC AND YOU CAN SEE THAT THE VAN LOWERS SO THAT IT’S NICE AND LEVEL FOR YOU GETTING JESS IN.>>Carolyn: SO WHAT KIND OF A DIFFERENCE HAS THIS VAN MADE TO YOUR LIVES?>>IT’S A GAME-CHANGER FOR US. IT’S A SAFER VEHICLE FOR JESSICA BUT ALSO FOR US. WE USED TO HAVE TO LIFT JESS IN THE VAN AND THAT WAS 140-POUNDS OF WEIGHT EVERY TIME THAT YOU HAD TO PUT HER IN THERE. SO THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD FOR BOTH HER AND US.>>Carolyn: YEAH AND IT LETS YOU TO GET AROUND SO MUCH MORE EASILY?>>ABSOLUTELY. AS JUSTIN SAID WE HAD TO LIFT JESS AND WE HAD ANOTHER VAN BUT IT WASN’T WHEEL CHAIR ACCESSIBLE BUT WE HAD TO LIFT HER WHEELCHAIR IN AND SO THIS IS A GAME CHANGER.>>Carolyn: YOU ARE ON THE GO A LOT SO IT MUST MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE?>>ABSOLUTELY. WE’RE A FAMILY OF SIX AND THERE’S ALWAYS HOCKEY AND BASKETBALL AND SOMETHING THAT WE’RE BRINGING JESS TO. AND WE TRY TO INCLUDE HER IN EVERYTHING AND WE DO INCLUDE HER IN EVERYTHING. SO SHE COMES EVERYWHERE THAT WE GO.>>Carolyn: WHY DID YOU WANT TO HAVE THIS EVENT HERE TONIGHT?>>WELL, WE JUST WANT TO SHOW APPRECIATION TO EVERYBODY THAT HELPED TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOR US AND OUR FAMILY AND JESS. I MEAN, THE KINDNESS OF PEOPLE THAT DONATED, ONLY ONLY MONETARY BUT THEIR TIME TO MAKE THIS A REALITY FOR US. I MEAN, WE JUST WANTED TO SHOW EVERYBODY THIS IS WHAT COMMUNITY DOES WHEN THEY DECIDE TO GET TOGETHER AND DO SOMETHING.>>Carolyn: THANK YOU SO MUCH. AND WE’RE GOING TO HEAD ON INSIDE. A FEW PEOPLE ARE ON THE GO INSIDE OF THE COMMUNITY CENTRE FOR THIS EVENT. AND A LITTLE BIT LATER WE’RE GOING TO SPEAK WITH YOU GUYS AGAIN ABOUT ALL OF THE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS, INCLUDING A FUNDRAISING EFFORT THAT YOU MAY RECALL, A CERTAIN LOCAL MUSICIAN WITH A REALLY BIG BUSHY BEARD, SHAVEED IT OFF TO HELP TO RAISE MONEY FOR JESS HERE. SO WE’LL GET INTO THAT IN A BIT LATER IN THE SHOW. BACK TO YOU, ANTHONY.>>Anthony: ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, CAROLYN. SO WE’LL HEAD BACK OUT THERE FOR MORE ON THIS STORY A LITTLE BIT LATER ON “HERE & NOW.”>>>OTHER NEWS NOW, AN ENGLISHMAN WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR A FLIGHT DIVERSION TO GOOSE BAY HAS BEEN SENTENCED TO TIME SERVED. 31-YEAR-OLD EDWARD MIHILL THREATENED TO KILL THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT AND EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANE WHEN THE CREW STOPPED SERVING HIM DRINKS. ACCORDING TO COURT DOCUMENTS HE GOT DUNK INTO A FLIGHT FROM LONDON TO CHICAGO AND HE HAD TO BE RESTRAINED IN HIS SEAT UNTIL THE PLANE GOT TO THE GROUND AND WHILE HE WAS IN CUSTODY IN HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, HE TOLD POLICE THAT HE WAS, IN FACT, IN CHICAGO FOR A WEDDING AND HE ASKED THEM TO CALL HIM AN UBER TO TAKE HIM HOME.>>>FOUR FISHERMEN WERE RESCUED FROM THEIR LIFEBOAT AFTER THEY HAD TO LEAVE THEIR SINKING VESSEL EARLY THIS MORNING. THIS HAPPENED ABOUT 80 KILOMETRES SOUTHEAST OF THE AREA. AND THE SUB-CENTRE GOT THAT CALL AROUND 1:30 FROM THE VESSEL, AND THE VESSEL IS LONG BAY PRIDE. AND THE SEARCH-AND-RESCUE FROM GANDER AND GREENWOOD, NOVA SCOTIA, THEY RESPONDED AND THE MEN WERE HOISTED FROM A LIFE RAFT TO SAFETY AND THEN TAKEN TO MARYSTOWN. NOBODY WAS INJURED.>>>WELL, NOW TO A STORY FROM THE WEST COAST. FIVE MONTHS AGO POLICE IN CORNER BROOK OVERHAULED THE WAY THEY DEAL WITH MENTAL HEALTH CALLS. AND SO THEY INTRODUCED A PROGRAMME THAT WAS ALREADY SHOWING SIGNS OF SUCCESS IN ST. JOHN’S AS WELL AS OTHER PARTS OF THE PROVINCE. SO INSTEAD OF RESPONDING WITH SIRENS AND BLARING LIGHTS AND FLASHING, THEY DECIDE TO MAKE A QUIET APPROACH WITH HEALTH CARE WORKERS IN TOW. “HERE & NOW’S” TROY TURNER WITH THAT STORY. [Applause]>>Reporter: 170 CALLS. THAT’S 170 TIMES THAT POLICE IN CORNER BROOK HAVE TEAMED UP WITH HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS TO HELP PEOPLE IN CRISIS. THE MOBILE CRISIS UNIT RESPONDS TO CALLS CONCERNING MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES. OFFICERS WORK WITH EXPERTS LIKE NURSES AND SOCIAL WORKERS TO COME UP WITH A PLAN ON THE SPOT. IT GIVES FRONTLINE STAFF A DISCRETION TO HELP THE PEOPLE IN CRISIS AS THEY SEE FIT.>>WE’RE GETTING POSITIVE COMMENTS, EVEN FROM THE COMMUNITY. PEOPLE HAVE UTILIZED THE SERVICE AND THEY’RE ENJOYING THAT WE’RE IN UNMARKED CLOTHES AND PLAINCLOTHES OFFICERS AND SO WE CAN BE OUT IN THE COMMUNITY AND NO ONE REALLY KNOWS THAT THERE’S A SITUATION ON THE GO.>>Reporter: SWEETAPPLE SAYS THAT THE WORK IS REWARDING BECAUSE SHE CAN HELP PEOPLE WHEN THEY NEED IT MOST AND THEY HELPS TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE AND CAN EVEN KEEP SOME PEOPLE OUT OF JAIL.>>I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE JOB. MENTAL HEALTH HAS BEEN MY BACKGROUND FOR ALMOST 10 YEARS NOW SO THERE’S REALLY EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. AND YOU’RE GOING TO THE PERSON AT THE MOMENT OF THE CRISIS TO THE AREA WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED TO GIVE THEM THE BEST POSSIBLE SERVICES THEY NEED AT THAT TIME.>>Reporter: THE R.N.C. HAS BEEN WORKING ON THE PROJECT FOR YEARS. CHIEF JOEL BOLAND SAYS THAT THE VALUE IS OBVIOUS.>>THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST INITIATIVES THAT I HAVE SEEN IN 37 YEARS IN POLICING AND IT WILL HAVE THE GREATEST IMPACT ON PERSONS IN CRISIS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND LOVED ONES AND OUR OFFICERS AND FRONTLINE HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS.>>Reporter: SO WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE R.N.C. AND MOBILE CRISIS RESPONSE? WELL, ACCORDING TO CHIEF BOLAND ABOUT 20% OF THE FORCE IS TRAINED RIGHT NOW. AND HIS GOAL IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE IS TO HAVE 100%, ALL OFFICERS, TRAINED FOR THIS KIND OF WORK. TROY TURNER, CBC NEWS, CORNER BROOK.>>Anthony: THERE’S A CELEBRATORY TONE FROM THIS YEAR’S WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL AND IT’S MARKING A MAJOR MILESTONE — THREE DECADES OF SUPPORTING AND PROMOTING WOMEN IN FILM. AND IT’S CELEBRATING ITS OWN ROLE IN ADVANCING THE CAREERS OF WOMEN IN FILM FROM THIS PROVINCE AND ELSEWHERE IN THE COUNTRY. “HERE & NOW’S” CEC HAIRE WITH THAT STORY.>>SO HERE IS THE 30th, THE 30th ST. JOHN’S INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL. [Applause]>>Reporter: IT’S TIME TO BREAK OUT THE CAKE. LOCAL ORGANIZERS UNVEILED DETAILS OF THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL TODAY. A LEGACY CELEBRATION OF PRODUCING WOMEN’S FILMMAKERS. THE ST. JOHN’S INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL STARTED BACK IN 1989 WITH A SINGLE EVENT. AND NOW IT HAS EVOLVED INTO A FIVE-DAY SHOWCASE, ATTENDED BY THOUSANDS. IT GETS CREDIT FOR HELPING TO LAUNCH THE CAREERS OF WOMEN WRITERS, DIRECTORS, AND PRODUCERS IN CANADIAN FILM AND TELEVISION.>>IT’S A PLACE TO SHOW THEIR WORK AND TO COLLABORATE ON NEW PROJECTS WITH POTENTIAL PARTNERS AND IT’S HAD AN ENORMOUS CONTRIBUTION TO THE GROWTH OF THIS INDUSTRY.>>Reporter: THE FESTIVAL HELPS EMERGING FILMMAKERS BY PUTTING THEM IN THE SAME ROOM WITH THE INDUSTRY DECISIONMAKERS DURING WORKSHOPS AND FORUMS AND PITCHED SESSIONS.>>WE’RE CELEBRATING AND ALSO TRYING TO PROMOTE AND ENCOURAGE AND HELP TO FACILITATE THE ADVANCEMENT OF LOCAL ARTISTS. WE HAD AN INCREDIBLE TRACK RECORD TOO. AND SOME OF THE BIGGEST FILM FEATURES TO APPEAR IN LAST 30 YEARS, THEY WERE FIRST PITCHED AT OUR FESTIVAL. OR THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE OR HELPING PEOPLE TO CONNECT FACE-TO-FACE WITH THE PEOPLE WHO CAN HELP TO LAUNCH THEIR CAREERS INSTEAD OF AN EMAIL OR A PHONE CALL.>>Reporter: THE ALT HOTEL IN DOWNTOWN ST. JOHN’S IS THE H.Q. FOR THIS YEAR’S EVENTS TAKING PLACE FROM OCTOBER 16-20th. THE LINEUP INCLUDES FEATURES, SHORTS AND DOCUMENTARIES FROM NOT ONLY LOCAL FILMMAKERS BUT CANADIAN AND INTERNATIONAL FILMMAKERS TOO. CEC HAIRE, CBC NEWS, ST. JOHN’S. (♪♪♪)>>Reporter: WELL, YOU CAN SEE THE BUSTED WINDSHIELD AS WELL AS THE DEPLOYED AIRBAG. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A CAR TRAVELLING 100 KILOMETRES AN HOUR SMASHES INTO A MOOSE. WE’LL TALK TO THE MAN WHO WALKED AWAY FROM THIS ACCIDENT. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Anthony: WELCOME BACK. A LITTLE WEATHER-RELATED SCIENCE TO GET TO FIRST.>>Ashley: SCIENTISTS IN NORWAY CALL CHANGES TO THAT COUNTRY’S NORTHERN ICECAP PROFOUND AND ALARMING. A TOP RESEARCHER SAYS THAT THE IMPACT OF THE RISING OCEAN TEMPERATURE WILL BE FELT AROUND THE WORLD.>>HUMAN-INDUCED CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL AND IT’S OBVIOUS HERE IN THE ARCTIC. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE TAKE THAT INTO OUR MINDS AND ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT WE’RE DOING TO THE PLANET.>>Ashley: HE SAYS THAT A 10-DEGREE INCREASE IN 30 YEARS IS SIGNIFICANT.>>Anthony: AND IT MEANS THAT GLACIERS ARE MELTING SO QUICKLY THAT THE ARCTIC LANDSCAPE IS BEING PERMANENTLY CHANGED. AND AUSTRIAN SCIENTISTS PREDICT THAT THERE WON’T BE ANY ICE LEFT ON THE ALPS — THIS IS AMAZE AGO — WHEN CHILDREN BORN TODAY WILL BECOME ADULTS AND THERE WON’T BE ANY ICE ON THE MOUNTAINTOPS THAT DATE BACK ABOUT 5,000 YEARS. IT MAKES YOU KIND OF THINK.>>Ashley: IT REALLY DOES.>>Anthony: ESPECIALLY ON “HERE & NOW” WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE PROTESTS AROUND THE WORLD ON FRIDAY. AND SO, OBVIOUSLY, GLOBAL WARMING IS BIG.>>Ashley: ABSOLUTELY IT IS ANYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD.>>Anthony: SO WE’LL HAVE MORE ON ABOUT THAT LATER ON “HERE & NOW.” AND NOW FOR REASONABLE WARMING, YOU MENTIONED EARLIER THAT IT’S FALL. BUT IT FEELS PRETTY NICE? SUMMER IS NOT LETTING GO.>>Ashley: WE WON’T DON’T WANT TO LET IT GO. AT LEAST I DON’T. LET’S LOOK AT THE TEMPERATURES THAT WE SAW TODAY. 17°, 19° IN GANDER. IT FEELS A LITTLE BIT WARMER AS WELL WITH A LITTLE BIT OF THAT HUMIDITY IN THE AIR. AND THE HOTSPOT THAT WE TALKED ABOUT IS HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY AND REACHING A HIGH NEAR 21°. NOW THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE STILL PRETTY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE SAW THIS AFTERNOON, STILL 17°. AND IN ST. JOHN’S YOU CAN SEE THAT GENERALLY SOUTHERLY FLOW AND THAT’S WHY WE’RE SEEING SOME OF THE WARMER TEMPERATURES. HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY HAS DROPPED DOWN TO ABOUT 15° RIGHT NOW, BUT, BOY, THE TEMPERATURES MAY NOT FEEL LIKE FALL BUT THESE WINDS CERTAINLY DO. TOP GUSTS THIS MORNING, ST. JOHN’S 80 km/h. 67 IN TWILLINGATE. AND ROCKY HARBOUR SAW A WIND GUST NEAR 63 km/h. AND NOW THOSE WINDS ARE STILL STRONG AND THESE ARE THE CURRENT SUSTAINED WINDS ABOUT 44 km/h FOR ST. JOHN’S AND 26° FOR GANDER. AND YOU CAN SEE, AGAIN, THAT WEST/SOUTHWEST FLOW WITH WINDS GUSTING UPWARDS OF ABOUT 40-60 km/h. UP THROUGH MAKKOVIK, THOSE ARE OUT OF THE NORTHWEST, GUSTING UPWARDS OF ABOUT 60 km/h. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT THE SATELLITE/RADAR AND NOT MUCH HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. AND IF WE ZOOM OUT WE CAN SEE SHOWERS MOVING THROUGH THE MARITIME PROVINCES AND THAT’S WHAT IS ON TAP AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NIGHT TONIGHT. GOING TO GENERALLY SKIRT THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE ISLAND THOUGH. SO I’D SAY BURIN PENINSULA AND THE AVALON AND THEN A BIT OF SHOWER ACTIVITY FOR BONAVISTA NORTH AND THE BONAVISTA PENINSULA. AND THEN, AGAIN, HANGING ON TO A CHANCE OF SHOWERS FOR CENTRAL LABRADOR AND COASTAL LABRADOR. AND WE COULD SEE THAT BLUE SHOWS AND UP AND THAT WOULD BE SNOW IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS, MOUNTAINOUS AREAS THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT TONIGHT. AND OTHERWISE WE SHOULD SEE SOME GENERALLY CLEARING TRENDS FOR THE WEST COAST. AS THOSE WINDS SHIFT, WE’RE GOING TO START TO SEE MORE NORTHERLY WINDS THROUGH THE NIGHT. BUT GENERALLY LIGHT FOR THE MOST PART. THOSE WINDS ARE GOING TO STAY STRONG THOUGH FOR THE AVALON, ANYWHERE REALLY ALONG THE NORTHEAST COAST. UPWARDS OF 50 km/h. SO SIMILAR TO WHAT WE’RE SEEING RIGHT NOW. 15° IS THE OVERNIGHT LOW TONIGHT FOR ST. JOHN’S. OTHERWISE WE’RE GOING TO DIP INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS AS WE SEE THOSE CLEARING SKIES AND THOSE LOWER-LYING AREAS MAY SEE PATCHY FROST. 10° FOR PORT AUX BASQUE AND 13° FOR MARYSTOWN WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS ON TAP. AND UP THROUGH LABRADOR, CLEARING TREND FOR HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY. AND NAIN 5° TONIGHT. AND LAB CITY SITTING AROUND 0°. AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE HOURS AND THEN WE SHOULD SEE CLEARING THROUGH THE DAY. TOMORROW LOOKS NICE AND MAYBE LINGERING DRIZZLE FOR THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE AVALON BUT THEN WE’LL SEE INCREASING CLOUD. AND LABRADOR WILL STAY QUITE NICE, BUT INCREASING CLOUDS AND SHOWERS THROUGH THE DAY FOR MOST OF THE ISLAND. AND THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO DROP FROM WHAT WE’RE SEEING TODAY. SO I HAVE 10° IN THERE FOR ST. JOHN’S AND THAT MORNING HIGH OF 15° WILL DROP THROUGH THE DAY. SO YOU’RE GOING TO CERTAINLY NEED A JACKET ONCE YOU GET HOME FROM WORK TOMORROW EVENING. NORTHERLY WINDS, 20-30 km/h, AND, AGAIN, WE CAN THANK THAT WIND SHIFT FOR THOSE COOLER TEMPERATURES. AND 14° FOR CLARENVILLE AND STAYING IN THAT 12° TO 14° RANGE FOR CENTRAL. AND A LITTLE BIT WARMER ALONG THE WEST COAST. BUT, AGAIN, THE SHOWERS ARE MOVING IN THROUGH THE DAY. PLENTY OF SUNSHINE FOR THE NORTHERN PENINSULA. 6° FOR CARTWRIGHT TOMORROW AND SO COOLER THAN TODAY. AND WE’VE GOT SUNSHINE FOR THE REST OF LABRADOR. SO THAT’S A LOOK AT YOUR FORECAST AND WE’LL LOOK AHEAD TO THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK WHEN I COME BACK.>>Anthony: YOU ARE LOOKING AT WHAT HAPPENS TO A CAR WHEN IT’S TRAVELLING AT 100 km/h AND IT HITS A MOOSE. THE PERSON DRIVING THAT CAR WAS JASON SPURRELL. WHERE WERE YOU GOING?>>HEADING BACK TO TOWN, TO PARADISE AFTER VISITING IN-LAWS. AND DRIVING ON THE ACCESS ROAD.>>Anthony: WHAT WERE THE DRIVING CONDITIONS LIKE?>>15°, CLEAR, DRY. YOU KNOW, GREAT DRIVING CONDITIONS FOR THE HIGHWAY.>>Anthony: NOW WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE VIDEO THAT YOU CAUGHT WHAT THIS WAS LIKE. BUT GIVE ME A SENSE OF YOUR DRIVER REACTION AND WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE THE MOOSE APPEARED?>>JUST BEFORE WE SAW A FEW FLASHES OF LIGHT FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY. AND SAW THE FLASH OF LIGHT AND SAYING TO SLOW DOWN AND THEN YOU SEE THE BIG MOOSE FIRST AND THEN WE NEVER SAW THAT SECOND ONE. AND THAT’S WHEN WE HIT IT. AND THE EXPLOSION FROM THE AIRBAGS AND JUST THE SMASH OF A MOOSE HITTING YOUR WINDSHIELD AND THE FRONT OF YOUR VEHICLE IS JUST AMAZING.>>Anthony: WHAT DID IT SOUND LIKE?>>JUST LIKE A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE. WHEN YOU SEE THOSE MOVIES AND SOMEONE BANGS INTO A WALL OR T-BONES ANOTHER VEHICLE AND THAT RINGING THAT THEY PLAY AND SO ON, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT IT FELT LIKE.>>Anthony: WAS THERE A MOMENT WHEN THEY SAY THAT TIME SEEM TO SHOW DOWN? YOU WERE DRIVING WITH SOMEBODY, RIGHT, HOW ARE YOU CHECKING WHAT IS HAPPENING AND HOW DID YOU PROCESS THIS?>>I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW. I THINK THAT IT WAS MOSTLY ADRENALIN. I WAS THE DRIVER AND MY PARTNER WAS THE PASSENGER. AND I REMEMBER UST WHEN WE CAME THROUGH PUTTING IT IN PARK AND TURNING IT OFF AND GETTING THE HAZARD LIGHTS ON AND GETTING OUT OF THE VEHICLE. YOU KNOW, GOING OVER TO THE PASSENGER SIDE TO MAKE SURE TO JUST GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE. BECAUSE IT WAS DARK AND TRAFFIC WAS ONCOMING SO THE RISK OF SOMEONE HITTING US AGAIN OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD DEFINITELY BE THERE.>>Anthony: SO AFTER YOU SMASHED INTO THE MOOSE AND WAS THE CAR JUST STUCK ON THE ROAD OR ARE WE OFF TO THE SIDE?>>ALMOST IN THE MEDIAN. SO WHEN YOU COME OUT THE DRIVER’S SIDE I HAD TO GO DOWN TO THE DITCH AND COME BACK UP TO GET AROUND THE BACK OF HER.>>Anthony: WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT WE SEE HERE, THIS VEHICLE, ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT YOU JUST SORT OF WALKED AWAY WITH A BRUISED WRIST AND YOUR PARTNER’S STOMACH IS A BIT BRUISED. ARE YOU SURPRISED?>>VERY SURPRISED. YOU KNOW, GROWING UP IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR YOU SEE A LOT OF MOOSE ACCIDENTS ON THE NEWS AND ON THE INTERNET. AND TO SEE THE DAMAGE THAT’S HERE AND WHERE THE HEADLIGHT IS SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE DRIVER’S SIDE AND TO ONLY GET A FEW MARKS IS DEFINITELY AMAZING.>>Anthony: SO SINCE THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED, DO YOU FIND YOURSELF RE-LIVING IT AT ALL OR SAYING, WOW, THAT WAS CLOSE? HOW DID IT AFFECT YOUR THINKING, IF AT ALL?>>DEFINITELY, YOU WILL PROBABLY BE A BIT MORE CAUTIOUS WHEN DRIVING. YOU KNOW, I CALL MYSELF A GOOD CAUTIOUS DRIVER, BUT, OBVIOUSLY, I HAD THE DASHBOARD CAMERA THAT EVERYONE HAS SEEN, SO, I’M LOOKING AT THAT ABOUT A THOUSAND TIMES AND TRYING TO OVERANALYSE WHAT I COULD HAVE DONE DIFFERENT AND GOING ONE KILOMETRE FASTER OR ONE KILOMETRE LESS. SO THAT HELPS YOU TO RE-LIVE IT TOO.>>Anthony: LAST QUESTION FOR YOU. A SENSE OF GRATITUDE AND DO YOU FEEL LIKE A LUCKY GUY, HOW DO YOU MAKE SENSE OF A RANDOM ACT THAT HAPPENS IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR ON OUR HIGHWAYS?>>JUST MAYBE SOMEBODY UP ABOVE WAS WATCHING US AND TAKING CARE OF US WHEN WE HIT THAT MOOSE.>>Anthony: I NOTICED LOOKING AROUND THAT THERE’S MOOSE FUR THAT IS STILL IN THE HOOD.>>DEFINITELY THERE. WE COULDN’T TAKE THE MOOSE BUT IT DEFINITELY — I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN IT AND I GET ANXIOUS NOW TALKING ABOUT IT.>>Anthony: LISTEN, I’M GLAD THAT YOU’RE RELATIVELY UNINJURED OTHER THAN A MINOR PAIN TO YOUR WRIST AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.>>NO PROBLEM. THANK YOU. (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELL, THIS WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE VAN HAS BEEN A GAME-CHANGER FOR ONE GRATEFUL FLATROCK FAMILY AND THEY’RE HOLDING A GET OF IT TOGETHER TONIGHT IN THE COMMUNITY CENTRE TO SAY THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED TO FUNDRAISE. AND COMING ON UP WE’LL HEAD INSIDE AND FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS. (♪♪♪) , YOU JUST GET THAT CALL, THAT CALL THAT CHANGES YOUR LIFE FOREVER.>>THAT’S WHEN THEY TOLD ME THAT SHE HAD MENINGITIS.>>THIS IS “MY STORY,” A SPECIAL SERIES ON “HERE & NOW.”>>I HEARD THAT I WAS A DIABETIC, AND THE THIRD DAY I SAID, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?>>SHE ACCEPTED THE D.N.A. AND SHE STARTED TO REGENERATE HER OWN BLOOD CELLS AND IT WAS AMAZING.>>Reporter: WE’RE CHECKING BACK IN WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE FACED MAJOR LIFE CHALLENGES TO SEE WHERE THEY ARE TODAY.>>I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AND FINISHING THE BOOK THAT I’M WRITING.>>Reporter: MORE SEGMENTS AIRING THIS FALL ON “HERE & NOW.” (♪♪♪)>>THIS IS MY STORY. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Anthony: AS YOU CAN SEE CAROLYN STOKES IS IN FLATROCK FOR A COMMUNITY SAYING THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE VAN FOR THEIR DAUGHTER, JESS.>>Carolyn: I WAS OUTDOORS WITH THAT BRAND-NEW VAN AND NOW I’M INSIDE WHERE THERE’S A BIT OF A PARTY HAPPENING, A LITTLE THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED TO RAISE MONEY FOR THIS WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE VAN. $67,000 RAISED TO HELP TO PAY FOR THAT VAN. SO AS YOU CAN SEE LOTS OF PEOPLE JUST KIND OF MILLING ABOUT AND HAVING SOME SANDWICHES AND SOME DRINKS AND STUFF LIKE THAT. AND WITH ME RIGHT NOW IS THE HILLIER FAMILY, OR MOST OF THE HILLIER FAMILY, ANYWAYS, INCLUDING JESS. THIS IS 11-YEAR-OLD JESS. THE VAN WAS PURCHASED FOR HER. AND THIS IS HER PARENTS, JUANITA AND JUSTIN. SO FIRST OF ALL, CAN YOU TALK A BIT ABOUT THE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS. HOW MUCH WORK WENT INTO RAISING ALL OF THAT MONEY TO BUY THAT VAN?>>SURE. WELL, WE STARTED FUNDRAISING LAST JULY. AND WE’VE HAD EVERYTHING FROM LITTLE KIDS IN THE COMMUNITY HAVING LEMONADE STANDS, TO PEOPLE HAVING BIRTHDAY PARTIES AND DONATING THEIR BIRTHDAY MONEY TO JESS. CHRIS ANDREW SHANIGINOK HAS BEEN A BIG SUPPORTER AND WE HAD A CONCERT FOR JESS AND WE’VE HAD A SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT. A BIT OF EVERYTHING.>>Carolyn: WOW. AND CHRIS ANDREWS, THAT MADE NEWS WHEN HE DECIDED TO SHAVE OFF HIS BEARD AS A FUNDRAISER FOR THAT. WHAT DID YOU THINK WHEN HE HAD THAT IDEA?>>WELL, FOR ME IT WAS LIKE SHAVE FOR THE BRAVE. THAT WAS OUR THOUGHT. AND FOR HIM TO DO, THAT THAT IS REALLY GIVING OF YOURSELF. TO GIVE UP SOMETHING THAT IS SO PERSONAL TO HIM TO HELP TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK TO JESS.>>Carolyn: THEY RAISED A LOT OF MONEY FROM THAT?>>IT WAS $23,000.>>Carolyn: WOW. SO THIS MAN REALLY MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE FOR YOUR LIFE, HELPS TO YOU GET AROUND, BECAUSE JESS DOES HAVE RETT’S SYNDROME. CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT THAT IS?>>WELL, RETT’S SYNDROME IS A NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDER. AND IT’S A GENE MUTATION. ONE IN EVERY 10,000 TO 12,000 LIVE FEMALE BIRTHS WILL HAVE RETT’S SYNDROME. IT’S RARE BUT NOT SO RARE. AND IN NEWFOUNDLAND, I THINK THAT THERE’S MAYBE SEVEN GIRLS THAT I KNOW OF WITH RETT’S SYNDROME IN NEWFOUNDLAND. AND IT’S A WIDE RANGE OF DISABILITIES. AND JESSE HAS QUITE A FEW OF THOSE BUT SHE’S A HAPPY LITTLE GIRL. SHE HASN’T BEEN SMILING MUCH TONIGHT BECAUSE SHE’S TIRED BUT IF CHRIS ANDREWS WAS HERE, SHE ALWAYS GIVES HIM A SMILE. ALWAYS. SO OCTOBER IS RETT’S SYNDROME AWARENESS MONTH AND OUR FAMILY, ALONG WITH ANOTHER FAMILY IN OUR COMMUNITY, IS HOLDING UP A PURPLE CAMPAIGN FUNDRAISER AND THAT’S ALL OF THIS STUFF BACK HERE. SO WHAT WE ASK OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE COMMUNITY IS TO PURCHASE A PURPLE LIGHTBULB AND THEY’RE HANDMADE BY ME AND JUSTIN AND WE ASK EVERYONE TO LIGHT THE NIGHT ON OCTOBER 29th. AND TO SEND US PICTURES AND WE FLOOD FACEBOOK WITH PURPLE LIGHTS. AND THAT’S ALL OVER CANADA. AND THERE’S ANOTHER LITTLE GIRL THAT WE’RE REALLY CLOSE WITH AND HER NAME IS REYA AND SHE’S RECENTLY DIAGNOSED AND SHE’S GOING TO ALSO DO IT WITH JESS THIS YEAR.>>Carolyn: SO OCTOBER 29th, NEXT MONTH, THE ENTIRETY OF THE MONTH IS RE IT EVERYONE T SYNDROME AWARENESS MONTH AND WHEN YOU SEE THOSE PURPLE LIGHTS ON OCTOBER 29th YOU’LL KNOW WHY THEY’RE TURNED ON. AND CONGRATULATIONS ON GETTING THE VAN AND TO EVERYONE HERE FOR HELPING OUT.>>THANK YOU, GUYS. [Applause] A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR COMING TONIGHT.>>Carolyn: BACK TO YOU, ANTHONY.>>Anthony: SO SOME NICE APPLAUSE AND CHEERS OUT IN FLATROCK AND A NICE GESTURE FROM THE FAMILY.>>>THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY LEADER ANDREW SCHEER MADE A STOP IN ST. JOHN’S YESTERDAY. DETAILS ABOUT HIS VISIT AND A LOOK AT WHERE THE OTHER LEADERS WERE CAMPAIGNING TODAY. (♪♪♪ (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Anthony: CONSERVATIVE PARTY LEADER ANDREW SCHEER MADE A CAMPAIGN STOP IN ST. JOHN’S LAST NIGHT. SCHEER SPENT AN HOUR CAMPAIGNING FOR JOEDY WALL, THE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE, RUNNING IN ST. JOHN’S EAST. THIS WAS AT A GATHERING AND SCHEER TOLD THE CROWD THAT HE’S BEEN HEARING THAT PEOPLE IN ATLANTIC CANADA WANT CHANGE. AND HE PROMISED ONCE AGAIN TO SCRAP THE CARBON TAX ALONG WITH OTHER TAXES, AND WHEN ASKED ABOUT MITIGATING ELECTRICITY RATES AS A RESULT OF MUSKRAT FALLS, SCHEER TOLD REPORTERS THAT HE WILL CONTINUE TALKS WITH THE GOVERNMENT.>>WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PUTTING FORWARD SPECIFIC MEASURES AS RELATED TO GREENING THE GRID AND IT’S PART OF OUR ENVIRONMENTAL PLATFORM THAT IS A GENERAL APPLICATION ACROSS CANADA. BUT I WILL WORK IN A CONSTRUCTIVE AND A COLLABORATIVE WAY WITH THE PREMIER OF NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR TO ADDRESS THE ISSUES THAT ARE AFFECTING PEOPLE OF THIS PROVINCE.>>Anthony: SCHEER MOVED TO ONTARIO WHERE THE BATTLE WAS ON FULL DISPLAY AS BOTH HE AND JUSTIN TRUDEAU CAMPAIGNED IN DENSELY POPULATED RIDINGS IN ONTARIO.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: RIGHT NOW THERE ARE CANADIANS WHO ARE FACING IMPOSSIBLE CHOICES BETWEEN THEIR GROCERIES AND THEIR MEDICATION.>>Anthony: AND IN HAMILTON HEALTH CENTRE, LIBERAL LEADER JUSTIN TRUDEAU PROMISED THAT A RE-ELECTED LIBERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD INTRODUCE A NATIONAL PHARMACARE PROGRAMME BUT HE DIDN’T SAY HOW MUCH THAT MIGHT COST OR WHEN IT WOULD HAPPEN. HE DID PROMISE AN INITIAL INVESTMENT OF $6 BILLION FOR PHARMACARE AND OTHER HEALTH INITIATIVES. CONSERVATIVE LEADER ANDREW SCHEER PROMISED TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR CANADIANS TO BUY THEIR FIRST HOME BY ALLOWING LONGER MORTGAGES. HE MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT IN A FAST-GROWING VAUGHAN, THAT’S A COMMUNITY JUST NORTH OF TORONTO. AND SCHEER ALSO SAID THAT HE’D REVIEW THE MORTGAGE STRESS TEST, A MEASURE BROUGHT IN LAST YEAR TO ENSURE THAT CANADIANS DON’T TAKE ON MORE DEBT THAN THEY CAN AFFORD. N.D.P. LEADER JAGMEET SINGH TOUCHED DOWN IN NEW BRUNSWICK FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE BECOMING LEADER. HE APOLOGIZED FOR THAT AND ANNOUNCED DANIELLE THERRIEULT IN HAS NEW RIDING. IT WAS HELD BY THE N.D.P. FOR NEARLY TWO DECADES BEFORE THE LIBERALS WON.>>>AND ELIZABETH MAY IS IN ATLANTIC CANADA TOO. AND IN FREDERICTON SHE ANNOUNCED A PLAN TO EXPAND MENTAL HEALTH AND REHABILITATION SERVICES, PARTICULARLY IN RURAL AREAS.>>>WELL, AN INTERNATIONAL STORY NOW WITH TIES TO THIS PROVINCE. THE NETHERLANDS IS NEARING A 75th ANNIVERSARY OF BEING LIBERATED AND THE COUNTRY IS HONOURING CANADA’S PARTICIPATION IN ENDING THE SECOND WORLD WAR. THE DUTCH AMBASSADOR TO CANADA PRESENTED NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR WITH 750 TULIPS OVER THE WEEKEND AND THOSE FLOWERS WILL BE PLANTED AT THE LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR’S HOUSE. THE AMBASSADOR SAYS THAT THE COUNTRY STILL APPRECIATES THE SACRIFICES THAT CANADIANS MADE DECADES AGO.>>FOR US, HAVING BEEN LIBERATED BY THE CANADIANS IS VERY IMPORTANT. AND IT GOING VERY DEEP TO OUR HEARTS. I’LL TELL YOU A PERSONAL STORY. MY MOTHER WAS BORN IN 1932. SO SHE WAS 13 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME OF THE LIBERATION. AND SHE TOLD ME THAT WHEN I WAS A KID SHE TOLD ME THE STORIES ABOUT HER STANDING AT THE ROADSIDE WHEN THE CANADIANS WERE COMING IN TO LIBERATE THE CITY WHERE SHE WAS LIVING AT THE TIME. THEY HAD BEEN UNDER A NAZI OCCUPATION FOR FIVE YEARS, SO FOR THEM IT WAS A MOMENTOUS OCCASION. GLAD TO SEE THAT. MY GRANDFATHER WAS PART OF THAT LIBERATION. THIS IS PART OF A LARGER GIFT FROM THEM TO CANADIANS. 1.2 MILLION WILL BE PLANTED TO BLOOM NEXT SPRING COAST-TO-COAST.>>>AND NOW A STORY FROM “GO PUBLIC.” CANADIANS USE e-TRANSFERS TO SEND MONEY ABOUT ONE MILLION TIMES A DAY. NOW THE BANKS SAY THAT IT’S SECURE AND THAT THE CUSTOMERS ARE PROTECTED. BUT DOZENS OF PEOPLE TELL CBC NEWS THAT THEY HAVE LOST THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO FRAUDSTERS AND THAT THE BANKS ARE BLAMING THE CUSTOMERS FOR THOSE LOSSES. CBC’S ERICA JOHNSON HAS THAT STORY.>>Reporter: RENE TRUDEAU HIRED A CONTRACTOR TO INSTALL A NEW FRONT DOOR AND THEN USED E-TRANSFER TO SEND HIM $3,300. BUT THE CONTRACTOR DIDN’T GET THE MONEY.>>I KIND OF PANICKED BECAUSE AT THIS POINT ALL $3,300 IS GONE FROM MY ACCOUNT AND I’M OUT $3,300.>>Reporter: IT WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRUSTRATING SEVEN-MONTH BATTLE WITH HIS BANK TO TRY TO GET HIS MONEY BACK. EVENTUALLY T.D. TOLD HIM THAT SOMEONE HACKED INTO HIS CONTRACTOR’S EMAIL AND SAW THE e-TRANSFER COME IN. BECAUSE TRUDEAU HAD ASKED AN EASY SECURITY QUESTION, THE FRAUDSTER ANSWERED IT CORRECTLY AND REDIRECTED THE MONEY TO ANOTHER BANK. A DECISION BY T.D.’S OMBUDSMAN SAID THAT IT WAS AN EMAIL BREACH, THEREFORE, THE BANK DID NOT ERR. RENE TRUDEAU IS ONE OF DOZENS OF PEOPLE WHO CONTACTED “GO PUBLIC” AFTER LOSING MONEY THIS WAY AND MANY SAYING THEY DIDN’T REALIZE THAT THEIR EMAILS COULD BE HACKED OR THAT THEY’D BE ON THE HOOK IF A FRAUDSTER CORRECTLY ANSWERED THEIR SECURITY QUESTION.>>WE’VE SEEN THE ADS WHERE IT SAYS THAT IT’S A SAFE WAY TO SEND MONEY.>>Reporter: AS WITH MOST BANKS THE FINE PRINT IN T.D.’S ELECTRONIC AGREEMENT SAYS THAT CUSTOMERS USING e-TRANSFER MUST ASK A STRONG SECURITY QUESTION THAT ONLY THE SENDER AND THE RECEIVER CAN ANSWER. ALSO IT WARNS DO NOT SEND THE ANSWER VIA EMAIL. THIS CYBER CRIME DETECTIVE SAYS THAT FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB OF LETTING CUSTOMERS USING e-TRANSFER KNOW THAT THEY HAVE OBLIGATIONS IF THEY WANT PROTECTION.>>THEY HAVE A HUGE RESPONSIBILITY TO THE CONSUMERS, YOU KNOW, YOU’RE LOOKING AT PEOPLE’S SAVINGS, PEOPLE’S PENSIONS AND PEOPLE’S INVESTMENTS. SO I THINK THAT THEY SHOULD PROBABLY TAKE THE TIME AND BE MORE PROACTIVE.>>Reporter: AFTER “GO PUBLIC” CONTACTED TRUDEAU’S BANK, T.D. AND ITS CUSTOMER WORKED OUT A DEAL. T.D. REQUIRED THE DETAILS TO BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL. ERICA JOHNSON, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER. (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL OUT THERE RIGHT NOW. JUST LOOKING OUT AT THE HARBOUR CAM. AND NOW TOMORROW IS GOING TO LOOK A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT AND WE’RE IN FOR A BIT OF A WET WEEK. I’LL HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS COMING UP. (♪♪♪)>>Anthony: JUST BEFORE THE BREAK TAKING A LOOK AT THE HARBOUR, IT LOOKS NICE OUT TOMORROW BUT DIFFERENT?>>Ashley: A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT. WHEN YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE TOMORROW YOU MAY NOT NEED A JACKET BUT, CERTAINLY, WHEN YOU COME HOME YOU WILL. AND TAKING A LOOK AT THE TEMPERATURES AND THE DAYTIME HIGHS FOR THE METRO AREA, ANYWHERE ON THE AVALON, WILL BE IN THE MORNING AND THEN THOSE TEMPERATURES WILL DROP. THAT’S WHAT THAT ASTERISK THERE IS. AND OTHER THAN THAT WE WILL SEE SOME DRIZZLE IN THE MORNING AND THEN WE SHOULD SEE THE SUN PEEK OUT AT TIMES. ESSENTIALLY ACROSS THE BOARD WE’LL SEE AT SOME POINT WE’LL SEE SUNSHINE TOMORROW. AND SOME CLOUD COVER WILL MOVE BACK IN LATE DAY WITH SOME RAIN AND THEN THAT RAIN WILL CONTINUE OVERNIGHT AND THIS IS TOMORROW AFTERNOON FOR LABRADOR AS WELL. 10° FOR LAB CITY AND THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE SIGNIFICANTLY DROPPING FROM WHAT WE SAW TODAY. CARTWRIGHT SITTING AT 6°. WITH SOME SHOWERS POSSIBLE. AND THEN SUNSHINE AND 10° FOR NAIN. HERE’S WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT WITH THE RAIN. SO RAIN WILL MOVE IN ON TUESDAY AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH SOME MOISTURE THROUGH ON WEDNESDAY. SO IT’S GOING TO BE PRETTY WET AND HEAVY RAIN AT TIMES AND ESSENTIALLY ACROSS THE BOARD. AT LEAST ACROSS THE ISLAND. WE’LL SEE SOME OF THAT RAIN PUSH UP THROUGH LABRADOR AS WELL INTO THE AFTERNOON ON WEDNESDAY. AND THEN WE GET BACK INTO THAT SOUTHERLY FLOW. SO A LITTLE BIT OF A PUSH OF SOME WARMER AIR WITH THIS SYSTEM AS WELL. AND THAT RAIN WILL CONTINUE RIGHT INTO THURSDAY MORNING. AT LEAST THE EARLY HALF OF THURSDAY. AND SO YOU’LL LOOK AT THOSE TEMPERATURES, AND SO RELATIVELY WARMER, 12°, AND 12° FOR GANDER AS WELL AND 13° FOR CORNER BROOK AND THOSE GUY SKIES WILL STICK WITH US THROUGH THE DAY WITH SHOWERS AND RAIN THROUGH THE DAY AS WELL. AND HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, 13°. AND NAIN 11°, WITH PLENTY OF SUNSHINE THROUGH WEDNESDAY AND LAB CITY WILL HANG ON TO THAT SUNSHINE AS WELL AND 12°. NOW OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS, THE TEMPERATURES WILL BE SITTING AROUND SEASONAL. IT SHOULD BE SITTING AROUND 14° THIS TIME OF YEAR WITH, AGAIN, SHOWERS REALLY ESSENTIALLY CONTINUING THROUGH FRIDAY. AS OF NOW IT LOOKS LIKE SATURDAY SHOULD SEE SOME SUN. SITTING AROUND 15° THROUGH THE DAY. AND NOW FOR CENTRAL NEWFOUNDLAND, 14° TOMORROW AND STAYING IN THOSE TEEN TEMPERATURES THROUGH THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. AND THEN, AGAIN, THAT SUNSHINE ON SATURDAY. THE TEMPERATURES OVERNIGHT ANYWHERE FROM 9° TO 11°, AND THE COOLEST WILL BE TOMORROW NIGHT AT 5°. AND NOW FOR WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND, RAINY RIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY. AGAIN, THAT SUNSHINE IS PEEKING OUT ON SATURDAY. BUT THE TEMPERATURES REALLY NOT MOVING MUCH. A DEGREE OR TWO HERE AND THERE. AND THEN UP THROUGH LABRADOR, AT LEAST EASTERN PORTIONS OF LABRADOR, SUNSHINE THROUGH WEDNESDAY AND THEN WE GET INTO THAT RAINY WEATHER AND THAT WILL TAKE US THROUGH TO SATURDAY. OVERNIGHT LOWS TOMORROW NIGHT 2°. AND COOL FOR WESTERN LABRADOR AS WELL TOMORROW NIGHT. -2°. AND THEN WE GET INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS BEFORE SATURDAY ROLLS AROUND AND THE OVERNIGHT LOWS SITTING AROUND 0° FOR SATURDAY NIGHT. SO THAT’S A LOOK AT YOUR FORECAST AND I’LL HAVE A WEATHER PHOTO COMING UP.>>Anthony: WORLD LEADERS GATHERED AT THE UNITED NATIONS IN NEW YORK TODAY FOR A SUMMIT ON CLIMATE CHANGE. AND THIS TIME THERE WAS A MEETINGWITH A DIFFERENCE. ONLY COUNTRIES WITH CONCRETE ACTION WERE ALLOWED TO SPEAK BUT THEIR BIG PROMISES AND GRAND PLEDGES, THEY WERE DROWNED OUT BY A SINGLE 16-YEAR-OLD. AS STEVEN D’SOUZA REPORTS, SWEDISH CLIMATE CHANGE ACTIVIST GRETA THURBERG TOOK WORLD LEADERS TO TASK LIKE NO ONE BEFORE.>>I SHOULDN’T BE UP HERE. I SHOULD BE BACK IN SCHOOL ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE OCEAN. YET YOU ALL COME TO US YOUNG PEOPLE FOR HOPE? HOW DARE YOU!>>Reporter: SHE’S MOBILIZED THE WORLD’S YOUTH AND BECOME THE FACE OF ACTIVISM.>>YOU HAVE STOLEN MY DREAMS AND MY CHILDHOOD WITH YOUR EMPTY WORDS.>>Reporter: TODAY ON THE FLOOR OF THE UNITED NATIONS, 16-YEAR-OLD GRETA THUNBERG TORE INTO THE WORLD LEADERS.>>PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING AND PEOPLE ARE DYING AND OUR ECOSYSTEMS ARE COLLAPSING. WE’RE IN THE BEGINNING OF A MASS EXTINCTION AND ALL YOU CAN TALK ABOUT IS THE MONEY AND THE FAIRYTALES OF THE ECONOMIC GROWTH. HOW DARE YOU! [Cheers and Applause]>>Reporter: THE SECRETARY GENERAL TOLD COUNTRIES THEY HAD TO COME HERE WITH CONCRETE PLANS. SOME LIKE GERMANY PROMISED TO BAN COAL WITHIN A DECADE. COUNTRIES PROMISED TO BE CARBON NEUTRAL BY 2050. BUT STILL THE LEADERS ACKNOWLEDGED THAT IT WOULDN’T BE ENOUGH TO STEM THE CARBON EMISSIONS.>>MY GENERATION HAS FAILED IN ITS RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT OUR PLANET. THAT MUST CHANGE.>>Reporter: THUNBERG DIDN’T STOP WITH THE MORNING TONGUE LASHING AND LATER JOINED OTHER ACTIVISTS TO FILE A COMPLAINT UNDER THE INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF A CHILD, SAYING THAT LEADERS HAD IMPERILED THEIR FUTURE. MONTRÉAL’S LEADER ADDRESSED THE SUMMIT TODAY AND SHE SAID THAT IT STRUCK A CHORD.>>WE NEED TO THINK AHEAD OF THE FUTURE GENERATION AND AS POLITICAL LEADERS THIS IS WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE IN MIND ALL THE TIME. NOT ONLY THE TODAY BUT THE FUTURE.>>Reporter: BUT FOR ALL OF HER PASSION, THUNBERG’S MESSAGE DIDN’T GET THROUGH TO EVERYONE. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP MADE JUST A BRIEF APPEARANCE AT THE CLIMATE SUMMIT AND INSTEAD HE WENT TO HIS OWN SEPARATE EVENT ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. A SNUB THAT LOOMED LARGE.>>THE WORLD IS WAKING UP AND CHANGE IS COMING WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. THANK YOU. [Applause]>>Reporter: STEVEN D’SOUZA, CBC NEWS, AT THE UNITED NATIONS.>>Anthony: WELL, TO A DIFFERENT STORY NOW. IT’S SOMETHING SO SPECIAL THAT INTERNATIONAL HISTORIANS ARE STUDYING IT. A YUKON FAMILY HAS TREASURED THEIR SOURDOUGH STARTER FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY AND THESE DAYS THEY’RE HELPING OUT SCIENCE WHILE CHOWING DOWN ON THEIR VERY UNIQUE BREAD. MORE FROM THE CBC’S JANE SPONAGLE.>>Reporter: SHE’S REACHING FOR HER FAMOUS SOURDOUGH STARTER.>>AND IT SAYS 100-YEAR-OLD SOURDOUGH, DO NOT THROW OUT. THE REASON THAT I DO THAT IS BECAUSE IF WE’RE GOING — WELL, WE DON’T GO AWAY ON THE HOLIDAYS ANYMORE, BUT WHEN WE USED TO AND SOMEBODY IS LOOKING AFTER THE HOUSE, YOU DON’T WANT THEM CLEANING OUT YOUR FRIDGE JUST BEFORE YOU COME HOME AND SAYING THAT IS A HORRIBLE LOOKING THING.>>Reporter: IT MIGHT NOT LOOK LIKE MUCH BUT THE STARTER HAS BEEN ALIVE SINCE THE KLONDIKE GOLD RUSH. CHRISTIANSON’S GREAT-GRANDFATHER HAD IT WITH HIM WHEN HE ARRIVED IN DAWSON CITY IN 1898 AND THIS IS WITH HIS FAMILY EVER SINCE.>>THIS IS LIKE THE WINETASTING.>>Reporter: LAST YEAR CARL DUSCHMITT VISITED CHRISTIANSON TO GET A SAMPLE OF HER STARTER. AND IT WAS SENT TO BELGIUM. A SERIES OF TESTS WERE DONE AND NOW THE RESULTS ARE BACK. STUDYING STARTERS CAN HELP BAKERS TO MAKE HEALTHIER AND BETTER TASTING BREAD.>>SHE STORES HER SOURDOUGH IN THE FRIDGE AND SHE’S USING IT FROM MY UNDERSTANDING WHEN I WAS THERE TO MAKE WAFFLES ON THE WEEKEND. SO SHE’S NOT FEEDING EVERY DAY HER SOURDOUGH.>>Reporter: ONE DISCOVERY? CHRISTIANSON’S STARTER IS THE MOST ACIDIC IN THE COLLECTION.>>WHEN YOU KEEP THE STARTER IN THE FRIDGE YOU GIVE THE MICROORGANISMS THE TIME TO ACIDIFY AND ACIDIFY.>>Reporter: D.N.A. TESTS FOUND THREE TYPES OF BACTERIA AND ONE TYPE OF YEAST BUT IT DOESN’T ANSWER THE QUESTION WHERE THE STARTER CAME FROM BEFORE CHRISTIANSON’S GREAT-GRANDFATHER GOT IT.>>HE HAD, IN FACT, PICKED IT UP WITH OTHERS AT DIEPPE WHEN THEY WERE GETTING READY TO COME OVER THE PASS. SO THAT SORT OF MAKES SENSE. I SOMEHOW JUST CAN’T SEE, YOU KNOW, FIVE MEN GOING HOME AND SAYING WE HAVE TO TAKE OUR SOURDOUGH.>>Reporter: THERE COULD BE A CONNECTION TO THE CALIFORNIA GOLD RUSH AS THAT BOOM DIED DOWN AND THE MINORS TREKKED TO THE KLONDIKE IN SEARCH OF MORE GOLD AND COULD HAVE BROUGHT THE SOURDOUGH WITH THEM. THE YEAST IN HER SOURDOUGH IS FROM THE SAME YEAST FOUND IN SAN FRANCISCO STARTERS.>>LET’S LIKE SAYING THAT IT’S A DOG, BUT WHAT KIND OF DOG? IT COULD BE A GERMAN SHEPARD OR A CHIHUAHUA OR SOMETHING IN BETWEEN. SO TO BE SURE, THERE’S EVEN TESTS THAT WE COULD DO FURTHER IN ORDER TO SEE IF IT’S REALLY THE SAME D.N.A., D.N.A., D.N.A. BUT THERE IS SOME SIMILARITIES.>>Reporter: CHRISTIANSON IS HAPPY TO LEARN ABOUT THE SCIENCE OF HER PRIZED STARTER BUT SHE ALSO REMEMBERS WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT.>>WE TALKED SO MUCH ABOUT THE SOURDOUGH AND IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EATING.>>Reporter: JANE SPONAGLE, CBC NEWS, WHITEHORSE.>>Anthony: WELCOME BACK. WE’RE SO ENGAGED WITH THE SOURDOUGH THAT WE DIDN’T GET TO THE PICTURE.>>Ashley: NO, WE DIDN’T AND IT’S WORTH WAITING FOR. TAKE A LOOK AT THAT PHOTO. AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING SUNSET.>>Anthony: IT IS GORGEOUS.>>Ashley: ANY IDEA WHERE THAT IS FROM?>>Anthony: THAT’S A TOUGHY.>>Ashley: IT WAS TAKEN IN SOUTH DILDO. A GREAT SHOT. I LOVE THE SUNSETS LATELY. ANYWHERE THAT I HAVE BEEN, THE SUNSETS HAVE BEEN GORGEOUS. WAYNE NOSEWORTHY CAPTURED THIS STUNNING ONE, AGAIN IN SOUTH DILDO. SO THANK YOU FOR SENDING THAT IN. IF YOU HAVE ANY WEATHER PHOTOS TO SHARE WITH US, SEND THEM TO [email protected]>>Anthony: BEAUTIFUL SHOT, WAYNE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. STILL TRYING TO GET OVER THE FACT THAT THERE’S A STARTER LIBRARY FOR DOUGH IN BELGIUM.>>Ashley: ISN’T THAT NEAT?>>Anthony: AN OLD CONTAINER. WE HAVE A LOT IN THE CBC FRIDGE UPSTAIRS AND SEND THEM OUT FOR EXAMINATION.>>Ashley: I HAVE NEVER SEEN SOURDOUGH WAFFLES.>>Anthony: I LIKE WAFFLES.>>Ashley: I LIKE A LOT OF FOOD.>>Anthony: WE’LL HAVE THOSE FOR BREAKFAST TOMORROW. AND WE’LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.>>Ashley: GOODNIGHT. (♪♪♪)
