POLICE SAY THE PARK IS DRAWING CRIMINALS FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE LOWER MAINLAND WHO PREY ON ITS RESIDENTS AND THAT THEY’VE HAD MORE THAN 700 CALLS TO OPPENHEIMER SO FAR THIS YEAR, FAR MORE THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE CITY. AND THAT, IN TURN, DRAWS POLICE RESOURCES FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE DOWNTOWN EAST SIDE, MAKING IT HARD TO POLICE OTHER AREAS.>>OPPENHEIMER PARK RIGHT NOW IS ACTING LIKE A MAGNET. IT’S DRAWING THE CRIMINAL ELEMENT INTO THE PARK THAT WAS OTHERWISE UNTAPPED, DIDN’T EXIST BEFORE. SO WE’RE HAVING THE CRIMINAL ELEMENT AND THE DRUG DEALERS AND THE PRESIDENT THAT ARE MOVING DOWN THIS BECAUSE THEY SEE A VULNERABLE POPULATION, AND THEY SEE A VERY LIKE ACTIVE MARKET WHERE THEY CAN EXPLOIT.

ALSO RELEASED NOW NEW IMAGES OF MENG’S CONFISCATED BELONGINGS INCLUDING LUGGAGE, CELL PHONE, LAPTOP, AND PASSPORT ALL OF IT PLAYING INTO HER DEFENCE TEAM’S TACTICS. THEY’RE TRYING TO PROVE THE C.B.S.A. AND R.C.M.P. COLLUDED TO VIOLATE HER RATING BY DETAINING HER BEFORE SHE WAS ARRESTED, CLAIMING IT WAS DONE ON BEHALF OF THE F.B.I. IF SHE SUCCEED IN ABUSE OF PROCESS IT WOULD BE SIXTH TO THE CASE, SAYS THIS IMMIGRATION LAWYER.>>THE REMEDY IS STOCK THE PROCESS. SO THE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE DEFENCE IF THEY CAN MAKE OUT AN ABUSE OF PROCESS ARGUMENT, THAT WILL END LIKELY ANY FURTHER LEGAL PROTECTED AGAINST THE DEFENDANT. SO I CAN SEE WHY THEY’RE PURSUING THAT AS A TACTIC.>>Reporter: BUT CANADA’S ATTORNEY-GENERAL CALLS THE NOTION RIDICULOUS, ACCUSING MENG’S LEGAL TEAM OF GOING ON A FISHING EXPEDITION.

THEY ALSO FOUND MORE THAN 1,000 GRAMS OF COCAINE.>>I WOULD SAY THAT A GOOD PORTION OF THIS WAS PROBABLY DESTINED FOR RED DEER, BUT A LOT OF THIS COULD ALSO BE GOING TO OUTLYING COMMUNITIES WITHIN RED DEER AS WELL.>>THE MEN FACE A TOTAL OF 22 CRIMINAL CHARGES INCLUDING POSSESSION OF CONTROL SUBSTANCES FOR TRAFFICKING, AND FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH COURT ORDERS.>>>THE PROVINCE ANNOUNCED MORE FUNDING TO COMBAT THE OVERDOSE CRISIS TODAY, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE MINISTER IN CHARGE OF THE FIGHT ADMITS THERE’S STILL MUCH TO BE DONE. THE THREE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS HAS BEEN EARMARKED TO PAY FOR COMMUNITY PROGRAMS LIKE NEEDLE DISTRIBUTION AND RECOVERY SERVICES. IT WILL ALSO BE USED TO CREATE 16 NEW COMMUNITY ACTION TEAMS FOR RESPONDING TO THE CRISIS, BRINGING THE TOTAL IN THE PROVINCE TO 35. MENTAL HEALTH AND ADDICTIONS MINISTER JUDY DARCY SAYS THE PROGRAM ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE, BUT ADMITS PEOPLE ARE STILL DYING EVERY DAY FROM OVERDOSES.>>LAST YEAR FOUR PEOPLE A DAY WERE DYING. THESE DAYS, AND IT’S TOO EARLY TO TALK ABOUT A TREND, THESE DAYS JUST UNDER THREE PEOPLE ON AVERAGE A DAY ARE DYING, IT SAYS SOME OF THE THINGS WE’RE DOING ARE WORKING BUT IT SAYS WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO ESCALATE OUR CRISIS AND KEEP ADDING TOOLS TO OUR TOOLBOX. THOSE DEATHS ARE AVOIDABLE AND WE’RE GOING TO KEEP WORKING TO BRING THAT DEATH TOLL DOWN.>>Mike: THE FUNDING IS PART OF THE GOVERNMENT’S “A PATHWAY TO HOPE ROAD MAP” FOR PROVIDING MORE MENTAL HEALTH AND ADDICTION SERVICES HERE IN B.C.>>>ABOUT 40% OF BRITISH COLUMBIANS SAY THEY DON’T PLAN ON GETTING THE FLU SHOT THIS YEAR. THE POLL DONE BY INSIGHT WEST FOUND COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS TO BE THE UNDERLYING FACTOR. THOSE WHO SAID THEY WON’T GET THE SHOT FELT IT’S NOT EFFECTIVE, AND THAT THEY DIDN’T NEED IT BECAUSE THEY WERE GENERALLY HEALTHY. THE SURVEY DID FIND THAT 96% OF THE PEOPLE WHO GOT THE SHOT LAST YEAR WILL GET ONE THIS SEASON.>>>PLANS TO GET RID OF THE R.C.M.P. AND CREATE A MUNICIPAL FORCE IN SURREY ARE DIVIDING RESIDENTS OF THAT CITY WITH MORE THAN HALF SAYING THEY ARE OPPOSED TO THE IDEA. THE NEW POLL COMMISSIONED BY A PRO R.C.M.P. GROUP ASKED RESIDENTS IF THEY SUPPORTED MAYOR DOUG MCCALLUM’S PLAN TO SWITCH FROM THE R.C.M.P. TO A SURREY POLICE FORCE. 54% SAID THEY’RE EITHER SOMEWHAT OPPOSED OR STRONGLY OPPOSED TO THE PLAN. MEANWHILE, 38% SAID THEY SUPPORT IT. THE SUGGESTION OF KEEPING THE R.C.M.P. BUT CREATING A LOCAL POLICE BOARD GOT MORE SUPPORT. 64% OF RESPONDENTS SAID THEY COULD GET BEHIND THAT IDEA, COMPARED TO 27% WHO WERE OPPOSED. AND WHEN IT CAME TO THEIR OVERALL VIEW OF THE R.C.M.P., A WHOPPING 81% SAID THEY HAVE A FAVOURABLE VIEW OF THE FORCE, WHILE JUST 10% SAID THEY DID NOT.>>CANADIANS USE E-TRANSFERS TO SEND MONEY ABOUT A MILLION TIMES EVERY DAY. THE BANKS SAY IT’S SECURE AND THE CUSTOMERS ARE PROTECTED. BUT DOZENS OF PEOPLE TELL CBC NEWS THEY’VE LOST THOUSANDS TO FRAUDSTERS. THE BANKS ARE BLAMING THE CUSTOMERS FOR THOSE LOSSES. ERICA JOHNSON HAS THIS “GO PUBLIC” STORY.>>Reporter: RENEE TRUDEAU HIRED A CONTRACTOR TO INSTALL A NEW FRONT DOOR, THEN USED E TRANSFER TO SEND HIM $3,300. BUT THE CONTRACTOR DIDN’T GET THE MONEY.>>KIND OF PANICKED, BECAUSE AT THIS POINT ALL $3,300 IS GONE FROM MY ACCOUNT, 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 SOMEONE HACKED INTO HIS CONTRACTOR’S E-MAIL 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 SAYS IT WAS AN E-MAIL BREACH, THEREFORE THE BANK DID NOT ERR.>>RENEE TRUDEAU IS ONE OF DOZENS OF PEOPLE WHO’S CONTACTED “GO PUBLIC AFTER LOSING MONEY THIS WAY, MANY SAYING THEY DIDN’T REALIZE THEIR E-MAILS COULD BE HACKED OR THAT THEY WOULD BE ON THE HOOK IF A FRAUDSTER CORRECTLY ANSWERED THEIR SECURITY QUESTION.>>WE’VE SEEN THE ADS WHERE IT SAYS IT’S A SAFE WAY TO SEND MONEY.>>THE FINE PRINT IN T.D.’S ELECTRONIC DISAGREEMENT SAYS CUSTOMERS USING E TRANSFER MUST ASK A STRONG SECURITY QUESTION THAT ONLY THE SENDER AND RECEIVER CAN ANSWER. ALSO IT WARNS, DO NOT SEND THE ANSWER VIA E-MAIL. THIS CYBERCRIME DETECTIVE SAYS FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB OF ELECT CUSTOMERS USINGISM TRANSFER KNOW THEY HAVE OBLIGATIONS IF THEY WANT PROTECTION.>>THEY HAVE A HUGE RESPONSIBILITY, TO THEIR CONSUMERS, YOU KNOW, LOOKING AT PEOPLE’S SAVINGS, PEOPLE’S PENSION, PEOPLE’S INVESTMENTS, SO I THINK THEY SHOULD PROBABLY TAKE THE TIME AND BE MORE PROACTIVE.>>AFTER GO PUBLIC CONTACTED TRUDEAU’S BANK, T.D.

THAT SAID, THE TEMPERATURES ARE COMMON FOR OVERNIGHT LOWS BUT NOT REALLY AT 6:00 O’CLOCK IN THE EVENING. IN TERMS OF WHAT WE CAN EXPECT, WE SAW SOME SHOWERS TO START OFF THE DAY AND THAT IS CLEARING UP AS WE GO. BUT I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED WE DO SEE A FEW MORE SPOTTY SHOWERS THROUGHOUT THE EVENING. WITH A QUIBB LOOK AHEAD FOR YOU JUST TO BREAK IT DOWN, EXPECT THAT BY THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, OUR TEMPERATURE IS NOT BUDGING MUCH. WE’LL GO DOWN TO 12° OR SO.

THOUSANDS THERE ARE REPORTING HEALTH AND RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS, OUT OF CONTROL FIRES IN THE REGION, HAVE MEANT DAYS LIVING IN A HAZE OF SMOG. SOME HAVE TAKEN REFUGE IN SPECIAL OXYGEN SHELTERS, SCHOOLS AND GOVERNMENT SERVICES CLOSE, MANY OF THE FIRES WERE DELIBERATELY SET FOR US FOR PLANTATIONINGS OR PAPER MILLS. PROTESTERS URGING THE COUNTRY TO DO MORE TO STOP THE DEFORCIATION AND OF COURSE THOSE FIRES.>>NOT A GOOD SITUATION THERE. BRETT’S HERE WITH THE FORECAST, AND FALL IS HERE.>>IT IS,.>>IT ARRIVED, AS OF TODAY. IT’S GOING TO BE AN UP AND DOWN KIND OF WEEK. WE’RE GOING TO ALTERNATE BETWEEN WEATHER LIKE WE SAW TODAY AND THEN SOME NICE SUNNY CONDITIONS AND THEN GO BACK AND FORTH AND BACK AND FORTH, BUT A QUESTION FOR YOU, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN THE EQUINOX? WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO STAY WITH THAT –>>NO, I’LL LEAVE IT TO YOU.>>I WANT TO SHOW YOU RIGHT NOW WHAT THE EQUINOX MEANS. THIS IS WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE. IF YOU LOOK AT PLANET EARTH TODAY BE GET TO SEE THE SUN’S RAYS GOES DIRECTLY OVER THE EQUATOR AND THAT’S BETWEEN THE TROPICS OF CANCER AND CAPRICORN. SO ROUGHLY SPEAKING WE WOULD GET ABOUT 12 HOURS OF DAYLIGHT, NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, ON THIS PLANET. NOW, SOME PLACES, A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO THE EQUATOR, WILL GET A LITTLE BIT LESS, BUT IF YOU ARE FURTHER NORTH, AN INTERESTING FACT THAT YOU GET EVEN A FEW EXTRA MINUTES MORE AND THIS HAS TO DO WITH THE WAY THAT LIGHT REFRACTURES INTO THE EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE. NOW, THAT SAID FOR US, CERTAINLY, FALL, OF COURSE, USHERED IN THE COOLER TEMPERATURES AND THAT RAIN AND FOR THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, WE ARE EXPECTING JUST A FEW MORE SPOTTY SHOWERS, OVER THE REGION, BUT BY TOMORROW MORNING WE’RE GOING TO GO THROUGH A BIT OF A CLEARING TRENT SO IS THAT MEANS IT’S GOING TO BE WARMING UP AND WE’RE GOING TO BE GETTING SOME SUNNY SKIES AT THAT POINT IN TIME WHICH WILL BE A NICE CHANGE OF PACE. THAT SAID I DO WANT TO MENTION IF ANYONE’S DOING ANY FERRY CROSSINGS WE’LL BE LOOKING AT PARTICULARLY GUSTY CONDITIONS TOMORROW MORNING, UPWARDS OF 60 KILOMETRES AN HOUR IN VICTORIA HARBOUR. SO DO KEEP THAT IN MIND. OTHERWISE IT’S GOING TO BE A LOT WALLER ON THE COAST HERE. RAIN IS STILL IN THE FORECAST, THOUGH, AS I MENTIONED, WE’RE GOING TO ALTERNATE BETWEEN DAYS HERE. THIS IS GOING TO BE WEDNESDAY OVERNIGHT INTO THURSDAY, WE COULD BE SEEING ANOTHER DELUGE COMING THROUGH, POTENTIALLY 15 TO 30 MILLIMETRES AT THIS POINT IN TIME, AND THEN LATE THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY, WE’LL GOING TO CLEAR UP NICELY AGAIN. WHAT DOES THAT TRANSLATE TO OUR FIVE-DAY FORECAST? MUCH MORE SUN THIS WEEK I THINK IN THE FORECAST THAN WE SAW LAST WEEK, THAT RAIN OF COURSE COMING AS I MENTIONED MORE SO WEDNESDAY OVERNIGHT. TEMPERATURES THOUGH ARE GOING TO BE NOTICEABLY A LITTLE BELOW SEASONAL; AND THAT’S ABOUT 16, 17° RIGHT NOW. BUT AT LEAST FOR NEXT WEEKEND, SOME SUN IS GOING TO RETURN BUT IT IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT ON THE CHILLY SIDE. SO I THINK I’LL TAKE THAT, THOUGH, IF I HAD TO CHOOSE>>WE’LL TAKE YOUR FLIPPING AND FLOPPING COMPARED TO WHAT WE HAD OVER THE WEEKEND.>>THE DELUGE UP IN SQUAMISH.>>A LITTLE RAIN. BRETT, THANK YOU.>>YOU’RE WELCOME.>>THOUSANDS OF TRAVELLERS WERE LEFT STRANDED TODAY, COMING UP, WHY ONE OF THE WORLD’S BIGGEST TRAVEL COMPANIES SUDDENLY WENT OUT OF>>HI, I’M AMY BELL AND HERE’S WHAT’S IN YOUR CBC VANCOUVER IN-BOX.

CAMERON MacINTOSH, CBC NEWS, LONDON.>>AND GLOBAL AFFAIRS CANADA SAYS IT IS UNAWARE OF ANY CITIZENS AFFECTED BY THE COMPANY’S DEMISE BUT AS KATIE NICHOLSON EXPLAINS, WHEN A TRAVEL AGENCY GOES BANKRUPT, THERE’S ALWAYS THE POTENTIAL FOR TURBULENCE.>>Reporter: IN HIS THREE PLUS DECADES IN THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY, PAUL DHALIWAL HAS SEEN A LOT OF COMPANIES PERMANENTLY GROUNDED.>>THIS IS NOT GOOD NEWS, WHEN THE MAINLAND GOES, CAPACITY GOES, DEMAND STILL THERE, BUT CAPACITY IS LESS SO PRICE WILL GO UP.>>Reporter: DHALIWAL SAYS IT WILL HAVE LIMITED EFFECT ON MOST CANADIANS.>>BECAUSE ONLY THE CARRIER WHICH WAS AFFILIATED WITH THE THOMAS COOK WAS AIR TRANSAT.>>Reporter: FOR SOME CANADIANS WHO PURCHASED FUTURE FLIGHT FROM THE AGENCY, THERE IS HOPE.>>IT’S EARLY DAYS SO WE DON’T KNOW HOW MANY CONSUMERS WERE AFFECTED.

IT WAS BROUGHT TO PUBLIC ATTENTION LAST WEEK AFTER REPORTS OF A WHISTLE-BLOWER’S COMPLAINT. AS LINDSEY DUNCOMBE REPORTS, WHAT THE TWO LEADERS DISCUSSED IS INCREASING CALLS FOR THE U.S. PRESIDENT’S IMPEACHMENT.>>FACING NEW ALLEGATIONS OF ABUSE OF POWER, DONALD TRUMP EMPLOYED A FAMILIAR DEFENCE.>>WE HAD A PERFECT PHONE CALL WITH THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE, EVERYBODY KNOWS IT, IT’S JUST A DEMOCRAT WITCH HUNT. HERE WE GO AGAIN. THEY FAILED WITH RUSSIA, THEY FAILED WITH RECESSION, THEY FAILED WITH EVERYTHING AND NOW THEY’RE BRINGING THIS UP. THE ONE WHO’S GOT THE PROBLEM IS BIDEN.>>Reporter: DONALD TRUMP ADMITS HE BROUGHT UP HIS POLITICAL RIVAL, THE FORMER DEMOCRATIC VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN, ON A JULY PHONE CALL WITH THE NEWLY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE. THE WALL STREET JOURNAL REPORTS TRUMP BROUGHT UP BIDEN AND HIS FAMILY EIGHT TIMES IN THAT CONVERSATION, IN AN EFFORT TO GET UKRAINE TO LAUNCH A CORRUPTION INVESTIGATION INTO BIDEN, AND HIS SON HUNTER, WHO HAD BUSINESS IN THAT COUNTRY. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE EITHER BIDEN DID ANYTHING WRONG. AROUND THE SAME TIME AS THE PHONE CALL, THE U.S. HELD BACK MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE. THE IDEA THAT THE PRESIDENT MAY HAVE USED FOREIGN POLICY TO BOOST HIS OWN ELECTORAL CHANCES HAS SOME DEMOCRATS TALKING IMPEACHMENT.>>I HAVE BEEN RELUCTANT TO GO DOWN PATH OF PEOPLEMENT FOR THE REASON THAT I THINK THE FOUNDER HAS CONTEMPLATED IN A COUNTRY THAT HAS ELECTIONS EVERY FOUR YEARS THAT THIS WOULD BE AN EXTRAORDINARY REMEDY, REMEDY OF LAST RESORT, NOT FIRST RESORT. BUT IF THE PRESIDENT IS ESSENTIALLY WITHHOLDING MILITARY AID AT THE SAME TIME THAT HE’S TRYING TO BROW BEAT A FOREIGN LEADER INTO DOING SOMETHING ILLICIT, THAT IS, PROVIDING DIRT ON HIS OPPONENT DURING A PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, THEN THAT MAY BE THE ONLY REMEDY THAT IS COEQUAL TO THE EVIL THAT THAT CONDUCT REPRESENTS.>>Reporter: THIS ALL CAME TO LIGHT BECAUSE OF A WHISTLERLE BLOWER COMPLAINT INSIDE THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITIES. OFFICIALS HAVE REFUSED TO SHARE THIS COMPLAINT WITH CONGRESS AS WORRIED HE REQUIRED BY LAW, AND THE PRESIDENT HAS DISMISSED THE WHISTLE-BLOWER AS A PARTSON.
