WATCH LIVE: The National for September 16, 2019


[♪♪♪] >>AT NO TIME, YOUR MONEY, YOUR VOTE.>>Adrienne: NOW THE FEDERAL LEADERS ARE TARGETING VOTES. WE BREAK DOWN THE GREEN PARTY’S PLATFORM AND WHY EVERY PARTY IS ZEROING IN ON QUEBEC. >>THERE ARE 14 SEATS LEFT. SOME PEOPLE THINK YOU WON’T HOLD ANY OF THEM. ROSIE IS THERE.>>President Donald Trump: WE WANT TO FIND OUT WHO DID THIS.>>Interview: THE PRICE OF OIL SPIKES AFTER ATTACKS IN SAUDI ARABIA.>>Adrienne: NEW DETAILS ON THE LEAKS OF THE RCMP. WHY THE DAMAGE COULD BE SEVERE.>>Andrew: FROM TORONTO TO THE OSCARS, WHY FILMMAKERS COULD WIN UP WITH THE BIGGEST PRIZE. THIS IS THE NATIONAL.>>Adrienne: THEY ARE PROMISING MORE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET, A GREENER ECONOMY, A CANDIDATE TO RALLY AROUND. PARTY LEADERS ARE MAKING NEW PITCHES TO YOU, AND AS WE HEAD TO THE FEDERAL ELECTION, MOST OF THOSE ANNOUNCEMENTS CAME AT PODIUMS, BUT AFTER THAT IT WAS ABOUT IT FACE TIME. THE CONSERVATIVES AND THE N.D.P. BOOSTING THEIR CANDIDATES IN CALGARY AND MONTREAL. THE LIBERALS AND THE GREENS RALLYING CROWDS IN ONTARIO. ROSIE, PARTICULARLY WHERE THE LEADERS ARE IS PARTICULARLY TELLING.>>Rosemary: IT ALWAYS IS, ADRIENNE. JASMEET SINGH IN QUEBEC AGAIN, WHERE THE PARTY IS READY FOR A FIGHT FOR EVERY SINGLE SEAT IT HOLDS. I’M HERE TOO, AS YOU CAN TELL, IN TROIS-RIVIÈRES, ALONG THE BANKS OF THE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER JUST NORTH OF MONTREAL. THIS IS ONE OF THE 14 SEATS THE N.D.P. HELD WHEN PARLIAMENT DISSOLVED. LIKE THE REST OF THEM, IT IS NOT A SAFE SEAT. HERE IS A SNAPSHOT OF WHERE THE PARTY LEADERS WERE TODAY. [ Speaking French ]. >>THE N.D.P. ANNOUNCED A NEW BUT FAMILIAR CANDIDATE FOR A MONTREAL AREA RIDING TODAY, THE FORMER LEADER OF THE GREEN PARTY OF QUEBEC. HE’S NOW RUNNING AGAINST PIERRE NANTEL WHO LEFT THE N.D.P. FOR THE GREENS. THE CONSERVATIVES ARE LOOKING TO RESURRECT ANOTHER CANCELLED FAMILY TAX CREDIT.>>OUR TAX CREDITS FOR FITNESS, ARTS AND LEARNING ARE HELPING YOUNG PARENTS GET AHEAD.>>PARENTS COULD CLAIM $1,000 FOR SPORTS AND ARTS, AFTER THAT FOR LEARNING.>>>THE LIBERALS ARE PLANNING TO DOUBLE THE FEDERAL SUPPORT FOR LEARNING AND CHILD CARE.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: THE NEW FUNDING COULD BE USED TO CREATE UP TO 250,000 NEW SPACES FOR BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND LOWER PARENTS’ FEES ACROSS THE BOARD BY 10%. [ Cheering and Applause ]. >>A BIG REVEAL FROM THE GREEN PARTY TODAY, ITS FULL PLATFORM.>>OUR PLATFORM IS THE VISION OF WHAT CANADA LOOKS LIKE IN 2030.>>THAT ANNOUNCEMENT CAME IN TORONTO, FULL OF PROMISES, BUT THE DETAILS OF WHAT THEY WILL COST NOT THERE. AS SALIMA SIVJI EXPLAINS IT HAS ECONOMISTS ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW IT’S GOING TO WORK.>>Reporter: A BOLD VISION IS ELIZABETH MAY’S PROMISE TO TACKLE SOCIAL ISSUES WITH A CLIMATE FIGHT AT THE CENTRE. >>WE CALL IT MISSION POSSIBLE. IT’S NOT MISSION EASY, BUT POSSIBLE. THIS PLATFORM REPRESENTS SOMETHING BOLD IN EVERY SINGLE CATEGORY. WE DON’T HAVE TIME ANYMORE FOR INCREMENTAL STEPS.>>Reporter: A PLATFORM WHICH DOUBLES CANADA’S CURRENT GOAL TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS. IT CALLS FOR BUILDINGS TO BE RETROFITTED TO BE CARBON NEUTRAL IN TEN YEARS’ TIME. ADD TO THAT UNIVERSAL PHARMACARE AND GUARANTEED INCOME. THE PARLIAMENTARY OFFICE IS STILL WORKING ON THE PLAN. MANY ECONOMISTS WORRY TRYING TO DO SO MUCH IN SO LITTLE TIME WILL RAISE COSTS AND THAT WILL HURT THEIR CREDIBILITY.>>THIS WILL PLAY INTO THE HANDS OF THE OTHER PARTIES WE’RE GOING TO SAY. IT MIGHT BE TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE, REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT IT, BUT IT’S GOING TO BE INCREDIBLY CHALLENGING IN THE SCOPE OF THE FEDERAL BUDGET. >>Reporter: MAY’S CHALLENGE IS TO SUCCESSFULLY ARGUE HER PLAN IS EXPENSIVE, BUT NECESSARY, AS SHE FIGHTS FOR THIRD PLACE AGAINST THE N.D.P.>>I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THEM AND I’M NOT RUNNING AGAINST THEM. >>Reporter: TODAY IN THE QUEBEC RIDING WHERE THE N.D.P. INCUMBENT CROSSED TO THE GREENS AND A FORMER PROVINCIAL GREEN JUMPED TO THE N.D.P., FIGHTING WORDS. >>FOR ME, THE N.D.P. AT THE MOST, THE BEST ENVIRONMENTAL PLAN.>>Reporter: NOT EXACTLY THE MESSAGE THE GREEN PARTY LEADER WANTS VOTERS TO HEAR AS SHE ANGLES FOR MAJOR GAINS COME OCTOBER.>>Rosemary: AS YOU SAW EARLIER, THE LIBERAL LEADER WAS ALSO CAMPAIGNING TODAY. JUSTIN TRUDEAU WAS ALSO TAKING QUESTIONS. SOMETHING HE HASN’T IN FACT BEEN DOING EVERY DAY. IT’S A PATTERN THE OPPOSITION HAS POINTED OUT AND SOMETHING DAVID COCHRANE RAN ASKED HIM ABOUT DIRECTLY TODAY.>>Reporter: AFTER A WEEKEND WITH JUST ONE QUESTION FROM REPORTERS, JUSTIN TRUDEAU STARTED HIS WEEK IN A RADIO STUDIO, FACING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ISSUE THAT HAS DOGGED HIS GOVERNMENT.>>DO YOU THINK CANADIANS DESERVE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE S.N.C.-LAVALIN AFFAIR?>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: WE GAVE AN UNPRECEDENTED WAIVER OF CABINET CONFIDENCE AND SOLICITOR PRIVILEGE.>>Reporter: IT’S THE FIRST TIME HE TOOK QUESTIONS SINCE TROIS-RIVIÈRES. SINCE THEN TRUDEAU HAS FOCUSED ON COVERING AS MUCH GROUND AS POSSIBLE IN UNHELD RIDINGS AND TIGHTLY HELD RIDINGS THEY HOPE TO GAIN. TRUDEAU MET WITH HUNDREDS OF VOTERSES AT THIS QUEBEC WEST FESTIVAL. HE SHARED A STAGE WITH BIANCA ANDREESCU. ALL OF THIS WHILE LIBERAL RESEARCH TEAMS DROP AWKWARD VIDEOS OF CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES TO DERAIL ANDREW SCHEER. WITH OBSERVE RS ARE CALLING TRUDEAU A CHICKEN, NOTICING THAT ANDREW SCHEER TOOK QUESTIONS ON A DAILY BASIS.>>WHY HAVE YOU NOT BEEN AS ACCESSIBLE AS MR. HARPER WAS AS LAST TIME AND WILL YOU COMMIT TO A DAILY QUESTION-AND-ANSWER QUESTION FOR THE REST OF THE CAMPAIGN?>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: I’M HAPPY TO BE TAKING QUESTIONS AND GETTING OUT ACROSS THE COUNTRY?>>WILL WE DO THIS REGULARLY?>>Reporter: IT CREATES THE QUESTION OF A FRONT-RUNNER CAMPAIGN DESIGNED TO MINIMIZE RISKS. IF THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY FOR BEING ACCESSIBLE, THE LIBERALS SEEM TO BE CONTENT TO PAY IT.>>Rosemary: MAXIME BERNIER, LEADER OF THE PEOPLE’S PARTY OF CANADA WILL GET MORE TIME TO TALK DIRECTLY TO CANADIANS. THE LEADERS’ DEBATE COMMISSION HAS CHANGED ITS MIND AND IS INVITING HIM TO NEXT MONTH’S TELEVISED DEBATE. THE FORMER GOVERNOR GENERAL WHO LEADS THE COMMISSION VOTE TO BERNIER AND SAID, YOU HAVE SATISFIED ME YOU INTEND TO FILL RIDINGS AND BASED ON PREVIOUS INFORMATION, I CONSIDER THAT MORE THAN ONE CANDIDATE OF YOUR PARTY HAS A LEGITIMATE CHANCE TO BE ELECTED AND THAT SATISFIES THE DEBATE REQUIREMENTS. BERNIER SAYS IT IS THE RIGHT DECISION.>>CANADIANS WILL BE ABLE TO LOOK AT ALL THE OPTIONS AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE PEOPLE’S PARTY IS A REAL NATIONAL PARTY WITH SERIOUS REFORMS THAT NEED TO BE DONE FOR A FREE AND MORE PROSPEROUS COUNTRY.>>Rosemary: THE TWO DEBATES WILL BE HOSTED BY A PARTNERSHIP OF MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS, INCLUDING CBC. I AM ONE OF THE MODERATORS. CANADIANS WILL GET TO HEAR FROM THE POLITICAL PARTIES. THERE ARE CONCERNS ABOUT FOREIGN VOICES LOOKING TO BE HEARD FROM THIS ELECTION AS WELL.>>Adrienne: ABSOLUTELY, ROSIE, THAT IS BECAUSE CANADA’S INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY IS WATCHING THIS UPCOMING ELECTION VERY CAREFULLY. CBC HAS LEARNED THAT A SPECIAL UNIT IS TRACKING FOREIGN INFLUENCE FROM INDIA AND CHINA IN PARTICULAR. THIS ISN’T JUST ABOUT CYBERATTACKS OR SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN. SOURCES TELL US THAT ATTEMPTS TO INFLUENCE ELECTION AND POLICY ARE HAPPENING OFFLINE TOO. ASHLEY BURKE WITH A CBC NEWS SLUF.>>Reporter: RIDING NOMINATION CONTESTS ARE CAPTURING THE ATTENTION OF THE PUBLIC AND THE SECURITY AGENCIES. MULTIPLE SOURCES TELL CBC NEWS THERE ARE HEIGHTENED CONCERNS ABOUT INDIA AND CHINA THIS ELECTION, FEARS THEY’RE TRYING TO INFLUENCE DIASPORA COMMUNITIES.>>THEY WOULD LIKE TO AFFECT CANADIAN POLICIES.>>Reporter: SOURCES SAY THE OPERATIVES ARE CHINESE AND INDIAN OFFICIALS UNDERCOVER AT CONSULATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. AREAS WITH LARGE COMMUNITIES OF CHINESE AND INDO-CANADIANS.>>IT’S OLD SCHOOL. IT’S NOT THE NEW SCHOOL OF THE RUSSIANS USING THE INTERNET TO INTERFERE IN THE U.S. ELECTIONS BY MOVING PUBLIC OPINION IN THIS WAY OR THAT DIRECTION.>>I FIND THE ACCUSATIONS MOTIVATED, LUDICROUS, AND SURPRISING. >>Reporter: INDIA’S FORMER HIGH COMMISSIONER TO CANADA BLAMES TENSIONS BETWEEN INDIA AND CANADA FOR HIS COUNTRY LANDING ON THE WATCH LIST.>>I THINK THE CANADIAN AGENCIES ARE BASHFUL ABOUT NAMING CHINA ALONE AND WANT TO BALANCE IT BY NAMING INDIA.>>Reporter: FOR CHINA THE STAKES ARE HIGH. CANADA HAS ARRESTED TOP HUAWEI EXECUTIVE MENG WANGZHOU. CBC NEWS HAS LEARNED THAT THE INTEGRATED INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY IS NOW PRODUCING REGULAR REPORTS ABOUT FOREIGN ACTORS IN CANADA. OTHER ACTIVE COUNTRIES INCLUDE PAKISTAN, VENEZUELA, SAUDI ARABIA, AND IRAN. IN A STATEMENT THEY SAID THEY INVESTIGATE AND RESPOND TO ALL THREATS OF FOREIGN INTERFERENCE. ASHLEY BURKE.>>Adrienne: THE SAME UNSETTLING QUESTION COMES UP: WHAT DID CAMERON ORTIS KNOW. HE WAS CHARGED WITH VIOLATING THE SECRECY LAWS. EVAN DWYER HAS SEEN THE SECURITY ASSESSMENT AND IF THE WORDS OF DWYER WILL TRUE, IT COULD BE DEVASTATING.>>Reporter: A PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT SEEN BY CBC NEWS SAYS THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE RELEASE OF THESE REPORTS IN INTELLIGENCE IS HIGH AND POTENTIALLY DEVASTATING AND THAT IT WOULD CAUSE GRAVE INJURY TO CANADA’S NATIONAL INTERESTS. THE SECRETS ORTIS HANDLED WERE NOT ONLY CANADIAN AND THE FALLOUT IS NOT LIMITED TO CANADA. COUNTERMEASURES COULD BE EXTREMELY COSTLY TO CANADA AND ITS ALLIES IN TERMS OF LOST SOURCES OF INTELLIGENCE, AS WELL AS A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON CANADA’S RELATIONS WITH THOSE ALLIED PARTNERS. >>PARTLY YOU’RE SENDING A MESSAGE TO ALLIES THAT WE’RE TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY AND THIS IS A SERIOUS CASE, BUT WE ALSO HAVE TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE REPORT COURTS.>>Reporter: IN ORTIS’S FOUND THERE WERE HANDWRITTEN NOTES THAT TALKED ABOUT STRIPPING DATA FROM A FILE TO FIND OUT WHERE IT CAME FROM.>>THAT MEANS REALLY THAT THE GOVERNMENT AT THAT STAGE TO GET A COURT-AUTHORIZED WARRANT TO SEARCH OR TO DO A COVERT ENTRY WOULD HAVE HAD TO HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL BODY OF A PRETTY CONVINCING INFORMATION.>>Reporter: ORTIS IS DUE BACK IN COURT ON FRIDAY. EVAN DYER, CBC NEWS, OTTAWA.>>Adrienne: THE GOVERNMENT IS PROMISING AN UPDATE ON ORTIS TOMORROW.>>Andrew: LET’S TURN TO THE U.S. WHERE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS GONE FROM LOCKED AND LOADED TO WAIT AND SEE. HE SAYS HE’S WAITING FOR PROOF THAT IRAN WAS, IN FACT, BEHIND THE ATTACK. THAT TAKE PUSHED UP THE PRICE OF OIL BY MORE THAN $8 TO $62.90 A BARREL. AT LEAST ONE ANALYST IS PREDICTING THAT COULD INCREASE OUR COST OF OIL.>>Reporter: TWO DAYS AFTER THE STRIKE ON THAT OIL FACILITY IN SAUDI ARABIA, CLAIMED BY HOUTHI REBELS IN YEMEN AMID THE SUGGESTION IT WAS ACTUALLY CARRIED OUT BY IRAN — >>President Donald Trump: WE PRETTY MUCH ALREADY KNOW.>>Reporter: TODAY DONALD TRUMP WAS ASKED IF, INDEED, THE U.S. THINKS IT WAS IRAN. HE WASN’T EXPLICIT.>>President Donald Trump: WE’RE CERTAINLY LOOKING THAT WAY AT THE MOMENT AND WE’LL LET YOU KNOW. AS SOON AS WE FIND OUT DEFINITELY, WE’LL LET YOU KNOW, BUT IT LOOKS THAT WAY.>>Reporter: SATELLITE IMAGERY RELEASED BY THE U.S. YESTERDAY SEEM TO SUGGEST THE ATTACKS COULD NOT HAVE COME FROM YEMEN, BUT THE U.S. HAS YET TO PUT FORWARD ANY EVIDENCE IT WAS IRAN. ALL OF IT IN THE CONTINUED FALLOUT OF THE U.S. WITHDRAWAL FROM THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL, THE TOUGH U.S. SANCTIONS REIMPOSED. THERE IS THAT STRING OF SHIPS ATTACKED IN THE PERSIAN GULF WITH THE U.S. BLAMING IRAN AND THAT U.S. DRONE SHOT DOWN BY IRAN. PUT IT ALL TOGETHER, AND THE OTHER QUESTION FOR TRUMP IS THERE SUDDENLY THE POSSIBILITY OF WAR?>>President Donald Trump: I DON’T WANT WAR WITH ANYBODY. I’M SOMEBODY THAT WOULD LIKE NOT TO HAVE WAR.>>Reporter: THAT SAID, TRUMP SEEMED TO EQUALLY UNDERLINE IF THERE WAS TO BE A WAR, HE’S NOT WORRIED.>>President Donald Trump: WE HAVE MILITARY POWER, THE LIKES OF WHICH THE WORLD HAS NOT SEEN. I’M NOT CONCERNED AT ALL.>>Reporter: ALL OF THIS AFTER TRUMP TWEETED ON THE MATTER OF SAUDI ARABIA THAT THE U.S. WAS LOCKED AND LOADED. A PHASE DOWNPLAYED BY THE WHITE HOUSE, EVEN AS TENSIONS RATCHETED REGARDLESS. PAUL HUNTER, CBC NEWS, WASHINGTON.>>Adrienne: MORE NEWS JUST AHEAD ON THE NATIONAL. ISRAELIS HEAD TO THE POLLS FOR THE SECOND TIME THIS YEAR.>>Andrew: PLUS CBC NEWS INVESTIGATES SEXUAL MISCONDUCT BY CANADIAN POLICE OFFICERS SENT TO HELP IN HAITI.>>Ian: THE LATEST ON KAILLIE HUMPHRIES’S COURT>>Adrienne: WELCOME BACK. LET’S GO TO OUR NATIONAL NEWSROOM IN VANCOUVER. IAN IS FOLLOWING SOME DEVELOPING STORIES ACROSS THE CANADA TONIGHT.>>Ian: LET’S START IN A CBC NEWS INVESTIGATION INTO FRAUDULENT IMMIGRATION PRACTICES, WHICH SHOWS ATLANTIC SEEMS TO BE A SOFT TARGET FOR THE SCAM. A CBC NEWS EMPLOYEES POSING AS A PROSPECTIVE IMMIGRANT WAS OFFERED A JOB AT A DAYCARE IN BEDFORD, NOVA SCOTIA. THEN TOLD THE JOB DIDN’T COME FROM THEM. THEN THE JOURNALIST WAS TOLD TO PAY WANHANTA IMMIGRATION SERVICES $170,000 TO GET THE JOBS.>>IT CAN’T HAVE ATLANTIC CANADA WHICH HAS IN THE LOW THOUSANDS OF CASES A YEAR TO SERVE AS A BACK DOOR TO CANADA’S IMMIGRATION CANADA ILLICITLY. WE HAVE TO PLUG THE LEAK.>>Ian: IN A STATEMENT, IMMIGRATION CANADA SAID THEIR ATLANTIC CANADA PROGRAM IS SUBJECT TO “RIGOROUS CHECKS AND BALANCES.”>>>LEARNING SOME MORE ABOUT THAT DISPUTE BETWEEN CANADIAN OLYMPIC CHAMPION KAILLIE HUMPHRIES AND BOBSLEIGH CANADA. SHE SAYS SHE WAS THE VICTIM OF VERBAL AND MENTAL ABUSE FROM HER COACH. IN A STATEMENT BOBSLEIGH CANADA SAID IT DID NOT FIND EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT HUMPHRIES’ ALLEGATIONS. SHE’S ASKING A JUDGE TO ALLOW HER RELEASE FROM THE CANADIAN TEAM SO SHE CAN COMPETE WITH THE U.S.>>>A SASKATCHEWAN NURSE IS TAKING HER CASE TO THE PROVINCE’S COURT OF APPEAL AFTER SHE WAS FOUND GUILTY OF PROFESSIONAL MISCONDUCT AFTER A 2015 FACEBOOK POST FOR CRITICIZING THE PALLIATIVE CARE HER GRANDFATHER RECEIVED. >>WHEN YOU BECOME A NURSE, DO YOU GIVE UP YOUR FREEDOM OF SPEAKING?>>Ian: CAROLYN STRONG WROTE THAT CARE HAD BEEN SUBPAR. DIDN’T NAME ANYONE OR SINGLE OUT ANY NURSES, BUT LAWYERS FOR THE SASKATCHEWAN REGISTERED NURSES’ ASSOCIATION SAYS STROM’S POST BROUGHT THE PROFESSION INTO DISREPUTE.>>>WE’LL HAVE A LOOK AT WHAT EFFECTS THE G.M. STRIKE WILL HAVE.>>Adrienne: IT IS THE SECOND TIME IN SIX MONTHS IN ISRAEL VOTERS ARE HEADING TO THE POLLS. THE PRIME MINISTER TRIGGERED THIS VOTE WHEN HE FAILED TO FORM A COALITION AFTER APRIL’S ELECTION, BUT HIS RIGHT-WING PARTY IS STILL IN A DEAD HEAT WITH THE CENTRIST BLUE AND WHITE PARTY. CORRUPTION CHARGES AGAINST HIM, STILL PENDING. WE HAVE A LOOK AT WHAT MIGHT MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS TIME.>>Reporter: ONCE MORE REFUELLING, AND I DON’T MEAN THE HANDSHAKES. THIS IS ISRAEL’S DO-OVER ELECTION, AND JUST LIKE THE LAST ONE, THE PRIME MINISTER IS THE ONE TO BEAT. HIS MESSAGE IS CLEAR, A LEADER WITH FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES, SOME MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHERS IF YOU’RE PLANNING TO DEFY INTERNATIONAL LAW AND ANNEX PARTS OF THE OCCUPIED WEST BANK, SOMETHING NETINYAHOO HAS PROMISED IF HE’S ELECTED.>>TO FIRE UP THE BASE FOR THE PRIME MINISTER, HE DID THE SAME IN 2015 AND NEVER MOVED FORWARD.>>Reporter: MANY ISRAELIS IN THIS ELECTION ARE FAR MORE FOCUSED ON THE SPLIT BETWEEN THE RELIGIOUS AND THE SECULAR THAN THEY ARE ON THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN DIVIDE. YOUNG JEWISH ISRAELIS, FOR EXAMPLE, MUST ALL SERVE IN THE MILITARY HERE, BUT ULTRA ORTHODOX RELIGIOUS STUDENTS ARE EXEMPT, AND PUBLIC TRANSIT SHUTS DOWN ON SHABBAT. AT A RALLY, A CENTRIST BLUE AND WHITE LEADER WAS TOP OF MIND FOR SOME.>>I DON’T WANT THIS COUNTRY TO BECOME TOO RELIGIOUS AND I’M WORRIED.>>Reporter: BUT HE WILL NEED THE PARTIES TO FORM A COALITION IF HE WINS AND THEIR RABBIS ARE FORMIDABLE TO GET THE VOTE IN. >>WE LISTEN TO THE RABBIS AND BELIEVE WHATEVER THEY SAY.>>Reporter: ONE OFTEN OVERLOOKED SECTION OF ISRAELI SOCIETY, THE ARAB PALESTINIAN MINORITY TENDS TO HAVE A LOWER VOTER TURNOUT. THEY HOPE THAT THE DO-OVER MEANS THEY CAN CHANGE THAT THIS TIME. THIS MAN IS A CANDIDATE IN JAFFA. >>BY PARTICIPATING IN THE ELECTION IN BIG PERCENTAGE, WE CAN GIVE HOPE TO ALL OVER TO OUR PEOPLE AND THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE, ALSO IN THE WEST BANK AND GAZA. >>Reporter: THE UNITED ARAB PARTY IS AIMING TO WIN 15 SEATS AND IN ISRAEL’S FRACTURED POLITICAL LANDSCAPE, THAT’S A LOT.>>Andrew: NEXT ON “THE NATIONAL”, BACK TO ROSIE. NOW, PLENTY OF THE>>Rosemary: WELCOME BACK DO TROIS-RIVIÈRES, QUEBEC. IT’S A CITY OF 13,000 PEOPLE ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE RIVER. IT IS HELD RIGHT NOW BY THE N.D.P., BUT THE LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES HAVE THEIR EYES ON IT TOO. QUEBEC IS NOT REALLY A MAKE-OR-BREAK PROVINCE. PARTIES DON’T GENERALLY NEED TO WIN IT TO FORM GOVERNMENT, BUT IT CAN HELP. WITH 78 SEATS UP FOR GRABS, PARTIES ARE LOOKING TO MAKE GAINS AND RIGHT NOW IT SEEMS, MAYBE ALL, WILL COME AT THE EXPENSE OF THE N.D.P. [♪♪♪] >>Rosemary: JASMEET SINGH IS TRYING HARD TO PROVE TO QUEBECERS HIS PARTY HAS SOMETHING THE OTHERS SIMPLY CANNOT OFFER. >>WE’RE VERY CONFIDENT THIS COMBINATION OF RECOGNIZING SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL INJUSTICE, THE IMPORTANT UNIQUE IDENTITY OF QUEBEC.>>Rosemary: IT WAS, AFTER ALL, THIS PROVINCE THAT FELL HARD FOR JACK LAYTON IN 2011 AND BROUGHT A RECORD 59 SEATS.>>IMPORTANTLY THE PEOPLE OF QUEBEC HAVE SENT A LARGE N.D.P. TEAM TO OTTAWA.>>Rosemary: BUT TIME HAS SHOWN THAT VICTORY WAS A ONE-OFF AND THE CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND IT LIKELY IMPOSSIBLE TO RECREATE. THE ORANGE WAVE IS NOW A DISTANT MEMORY, AND THE N.D.P. IS SIMPLY TRYING TO HOLD ON TO THE 14 SEATS IT HAS IN THE PROVINCE. PUBLIC OPINION POLLS SUGGEST QUEBEC IS NOW A THREE-WAY RACE, AND THE N.D.P. IS NOT A PART OF IT. LEAVING SINGH FIGHTING TO KEEP SEATS THE PARTY HAS HELD FOR TWO ELECTION CYCLES. THE BLOC QUEBECOIS WITH ANOTHER LEADER AT THE HELM IS LOOKING TO WIN BACK SEATS LOST TO THE N.D.P. AND RETURN TO OFFICIAL PARTY STATUS HIS 12 SEATS. PART OF THE BLOC’S SUCCESS WILL COME BECAUSE OF THE SECULAR BILL WHICH BANS CIVIL SERVANTS FROM WEARING RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS. [ Speaking French ]. >>Rosemary: IT’S AN EASY PLAY FOR THE BLOC, TO DEFEND THE BILL THAT IS HUGELY POPULAR IN THE PROVINCE AND LETS BLOC PLAY ITS TRADITIONAL ROLL OF DEFENDER OF QUEBEC’S INTERESTS. >>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: I DON’T THINK IN A FREE SOCIETY WE SHOULD BE LEGITIMATIZING DISCRIMINATION AGAINST ANYONE.>>Rosemary: JUSTIN TRUDEAU HAS NOW LEFT THE WINDOW OPEN TO CONTEST THE BILL IN THE FUTURE, THOUGH HE SAYS HE WILL NOT GET INVOLVED FOR NOW. >>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: WE ARE WEIGHING WHETHER TO INTERVENE. AT THIS POINT, WE DO NOT THINK THAT IT WOULD BE PRODUCTIVE.>>Rosemary: THIS IN DESPITE OF THE QUEBEC LEADER’S DEMAND, ALL OF THE PARTIES STAY OUT OF IT ENTIRELY.>>I THINK IT’S NOT A MATTER OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, BUT QUEBECERS.>>Rosemary: WHILE THE LIBERALS ARE HOPING TO PLUCK FROM THE N.D.P., THE CONSERVATIVES ARE DOING THE SAME. BOTH LEADERS HAVE STOPPED IN TROIS-RIVIÈRES, WHERE THEY BOTH HAVE WELL-KNOWN CANDIDATES AND ARE HOPING TO KNOCK OFF THE NEW DEMOCRATS.>>WE ARE GOING TO SURPRISE PEOPLE AND WIN ALL OVER QUEBEC.>>Rosemary: THEY ARE HOPING TO BROADEN THE APPEAL. EARLY CONFUSION ABOUT WHAT CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES WERE SAYING ABOUT ABORTION, VERSUS WHAT THEIR LEADER STANDS FOR, COULD STILL CREATE PROBLEMS FOR THE PARTY, EVEN AFTER SCHEER SAID HE WOULD NOT REOPEN THE DEBATE. QUEBEC IS ALWAYS A BATTLEGROUND FOR EVERY PARTY, BUT THIS ELECTION MAY BE MORE ABOUT THE WEAKNESS OF ONE PARTY, AND HOW THAT VOTE GETS SPLIT UP.>>ONE OF THE N.D.P.’S SUCCESS STORIES IN THE LAST FEW YEARS HAS BEEN RUTH ELLEN BROSSEAU. HE’S RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION IN THE RIDING OF BERTHIER-MASKINONGÉ, JUST NEXT DOOR TO WHERE I AM TONIGHT. WE MET UP EARLIER TO TALK ABOUT HER UNLIKELY POLITICAL PAST AND WHAT THE FUTURE MIGHT BRING. [ Speaking French ]. >>Rosemary: RUTH ELLEN BROSSEAU IS LOOKING FOR A THIRD MANDATE AS A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT, BUT ACTUALLY SHE WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO WIN. NOMINATED AS A PAPER CANDIDATE IN 2011, BROSSEAU WAS MEANT TO FILL A SLOT FOR THE N.D.P. SHE DIDN’T CAMPAIGN, SHE DIDN’T LIVE IN OR KNOW THE RIDING, AND SHE TOOK A HOLIDAY TO LAS VEGAS IN THE MIDST OF THE ELECTION. BUT SHE WAS CAUGHT UP IN THE N.D.P. WAVE, AND IN 2015 SHE WON AGAIN, IN PART BECAUSE SHE HAS EMBRACED REPRESENTING HER VAST RURAL QUEBEC RIDING. SHE SEEMS TO KNOW EVERYONE.>>I APPRECIATE RUTH ELLEN BROSSEAU AND HOW SHE’S STOOD UP FOR FARMERS. I’VE NEVER MET SOMEONE SO CLOSE TO THE PEOPLE. THIS ELECTION IS NOT JUST ABOUT BROSSEAU, BUT AN N.D.P. LEADER WHO IS NOT YET WELL-KNOWN IN THE PROVINCE. [ Speaking French ]. >>DO YOU KNOW JASMEET SINGH? NO, I DON’T KNOW HIM, THEY BOTH SAY.>>Rosemary: SHE EMBODIES THE RELIGIOUS SYMBOL AND THAT COULD BE PROBLEMATIC.>>I WON’T VOTE FOR HIM, NOT BECAUSE I’M RACIST, BECAUSE I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS AND THINK IT’S PROPAGANDA. BROSSEAU IS FACING MANY CHALLENGES HEAD ON THIS TIME. WE CAUGHT UP WITH HER IN HER RIDING EARLIER TODAY. TIMES HAVE CHANGED FOR YOU.>>RIGHT? A LOT HAS GONE BY SINCE 2011.>>Rosemary: THAT’S CRAZY. YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH THREE LEADERS REALLY, WHICH IS HARD FOR ANYONE.>>IT IS HARD. I REMEMBER BEING ELECTED IN 2011 IN MAY, AND THEN WE LOST BACK MID-AUGUST. I REMEMBER EVERYBODY WAS SAYING, THE N.D.P. IS DEAD. ALL THESE NEW ROOKIE M.S.s, IT’S NOT GOING TO GO DOWN VERY WELL. IN 2015 WE DIDN’T DO AS WELL AS WE WOULD LIKE TO. WE LOST TOM, THERE WAS A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE, AND THEN THERE WAS JAGMEET. IN POLITICS THERE IS TIME TO GET KNOWN. IN FRENCH THERE IS AN EXPRESSION — [ Speaking French ].>>Rosemary: IT’S GOOD IF YOU’RE BEING TALKED ABOUT. >>EXACTLY.>>Reporter: HE UNDERSTANDS THAT BILL 21, THE SECULARISM LAW, IS PRESENT AND POPULAR HERE. PEOPLE THAT WE WERE TALKING TO YESTERDAY, MOST OF THEM IN FAVOUR OF IT. HOW DO YOU THINK IT CHANGES THINGS FOR YOU, TO HAVE A LEADER WHO IS — WHO EMBODIES THE THINGS THAT QUEBECERS HAVE SAID WE’RE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH?>>WELL, THE BILL 21 IS ADOPTED, RIGHT. IT WAS TABLED IN THE LEGISLATURE. IT WAS DEBATED, IT WAS ADOPTED. AND JAGMEET HAS BEEN CLEAR THAT THEY’RE NOT GOING TO CONTEST IT. IT WAS VOTED BY THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO PUT ANY MONEY BEHIND IT. A LOT OF MY CONSTITUENTS DO SUPPORT THE BILL.>>Rosemary: THERE’S 14 SEATS LEFT. SOME PEOPLE THINK YOU WON’T HOLD ANY OF THEM.>>I’M GOING TO PROVE THEM WRONG.>>Rosemary: YOU MUST FEEL THE WEIGHT OF THAT, THOUGH?>>IT’S DIFFERENT. EVERY ELECTION IS DIFFERENT. THIS ISN’T YOUR FIRST RODEO OR ELECTION. IN 2015 NOBODY WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE LIBERALS WOULD TAKE THE POWER. IN 2015 PEOPLE VOTED YES N.D.P., BUT FOR RUTH ELLEN BROSSEAU.>>Rosemary: IN THE REST OF THE COUNTRY WE’RE HEARING ABOUT AFFORDABILITY AND WHAT ARE THE THINGS PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING ABOUT?>>WE HEAR A LOT ABOUT INTERNET. THERE’S A LOT OF SPOTS YOU KNOW YOU DON’T HAVE INTERNET CONNECTION. IT’S A RURAL RIDING. WITH A LOT OF THE TRADE AGREEMENTS, CERTAINLY DAIRY FARMERS, CHICKEN FARMERS, BUT A LOT OF THE OTHER FARMERS TOO.>>Rosemary: EIGHT YEARS AGO YOU COULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED THIS WOULD BE YOU OR EVEN FOUR YEARS AGO.>>IT’S AN BEEN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. I’VE BEEN ABLE TO HOLD MANY HATS AND RESPONSIBILITIES AND I THINK I’VE GROWN AND EVERY DAY WE’RE STILL LEARNING. IT’S BEEN AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.>>Rosemary: ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE END OF IT?>>I WILL BE VERY PROUD. I WASN’T SUPPOSED TO WIN. I’VE BEEN PROUD OF THE WORK THAT I’VE BEEN ABLE TO DO AND THE RELATIONSHIPS I’VE BEEN ABLE TO BUILD IN MY CONSTITUENCY AND ACROSS THE CANADA. I HOPE THIS ISN’T THE END, AND I’M STAYING HERE. HOPEFULLY I’LL BE RE-ELECTED. IF NOT, I’LL STILL BE IN MY COMMUNITY. I’VE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THIS COMMUNITY AND HOPEFULLY I’LL HAVE MORE TIME TO HELP OUT ON THE FARM.>>Rosemary: THANK YOU.>>>ALL SUMMER LONG THE N.D.P. HAS BEEN JOCKEYING WITH THE GREEN PARTY FOR FOURTH PLACE IN THE POLLS IN THIS PROVINCE. TODAY, A TINY VICTORY WON, THEY ARE IN FOURTH UP 2 PERCENTAGE POLLS. THE POLLS SUGGEST THE LIBERALS WILL LEAD WITH THE CONSERVATIVES SECOND AND THE BLOC QUEBECOIS THIRD. THE BLOC IS LOOKING TO PICK UP SOME CRUCIAL SEATS. ALISON NORTHCOTT LOOKS AT WHETHER VOTERS ARE WILLING TO BE WOOED BACK TO THE PARTY.>>Reporter: QUEBEC IS US IS THE SLOGAN THE BLOC IS USING TO BRING VOTERS BACK TO ITS PARTY.>>WE ARE THE ONLY PARTY OF WHICH EVERY M.P. IS BACK, EVERYBODY IS A CANDIDATE AGAIN BECAUSE UNITY IS BACK.>>Reporter: WITH THE N.D.P. TRAILING IN THE POLLS, BLANCHET SEES AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A GAIN.>>THE BLOC COULD PLAY THIS ROLL OF A JOKER AND COULD ACTUALLY CREATE PROBLEMS FOR THE CONSERVATIVES AND ESPECIALLY FOR THE LIBERALS WHO ARE REALLY AFTER THESE N.D.P. SEATS WHO ARE ALL VULNERABLE.>>Reporter: TO GET AN EDGE HE SAYS THE BLOC IS PLAYING OFF THE POPULAR OF THE QUEBEC PREMIER, VOWING TO DEFEND PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT DECISIONS IN OTTAWA, INCLUDING THE CONTROVERSIAL SECULARISM LAW BILL 21.>>SIDING WITH THE PREMIER AND CRITICIZING ALL THE OTHER FEDERAL LEADERS AND SAYING WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO DEFEND QUEBEC’S POSITION IS THEN A WAY TO ATTRACT FRANCOPHONE VOLTERS LIKE A BILL MAGNET.>>Reporter: IS BILL 21 GOING TO BE A BALLOT ISSUE?>>IT WILL BE. IT IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE DECIDED BY QUEBEC PARLIAMENT IF IT HAPPENS THAT WE CARRY THE VOICE OF QUEBECERS BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE, PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO MAKE THEIR VOICES.>>Reporter: BLANCHET SAYS HE WILL NEED TO FOCUS ON THE ENVIRONMENT. PART OF THE CHALLENGE IS CONVINCING VOTERS THE BLOC IS STILL RELEVANT.>>IT’S A PARTY OF YESTERDAY AND I’M LOOKING FOR TOMORROW.>>Reporter: BUT THERE ARE BLOC SUPPORTERS WHO WON’T WAIVER. [ Speaking French ]. >>Reporter: WE’VE ALWAYS VOTED BLOC QUEBECOIS. WE’RE SEPARATISTS. IN THIS EAST END MONTREAL RIDING NICOLE DECHENE SAYS SECULARISM, CULTURE, AND LANGUAGE ARE KEY ISSUES FOR HER AND SAYS BLANCHET SEEMS LIKE A LEADER WHO WILL PROTECT QUEBEC’S INTERESTS. [ Speaking French ]. >>Reporter: BUT ESTELLE CRUISE SAYS SHE’S TURNED OFF BY RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS AND WHAT PEOPLE WEAR. THE BLOC NEEDS TO WIN TWO MORE SEATS TO RETURN TO OFFICIAL PARTY STATUS ON ELECTION DAY.>>Rosemary: THAT’S IT FROM TROIS-RIVIÈRES TONIGHT. I’LL BE BACK IN THE NATION’S CAPITAL TOMORROW.>>Adrienne: NEXT ON “THE NATIONAL”, CBC NEWS INVESTIGATES SEXUAL MISCONDUCT BY CANADIAN PEACEKEEPERS.>>Reporter: WERE YOU CONFIDENT THAT THIS INCIDENT ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE?>>YES, WITHOUT A DOUBT.>>Adrienne: HUNDREDS OF CANADIAN POLICE OVER THE YEARS HAVE GONE TO HAITI UNDER THE UN BANNER TO HELP KEEP THE PEACE AND UPHOLD THE LAW, BUT A CBC NEWS INVESTIGATION REVEALS CONDUCT THAT STAINED CANADA’S REPUTATION AND A RESPONSE THAT STRAINED DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS. THE STORY TONIGHT IS ABOUT SEX, POWER, AND ULTIMATELY ACCOUNTABILITY.>>Reporter: ROB HOPSTON WAS AN INVESTIGATOR WITH THE UN IN HAITI. IT WAS HIS JOB TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT BY EMPLOYEES. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER HE’S SHARING DETAILS ABOUT A TROUBLING CASE THAT LANDED ON HIS DESK IN 2013.>>THE FEMALE VICTIM HAD MET WITH R A POLICE OFFICER WHO WAS WORKING AS A PEACEKEEPER.>>Reporter: THE OFFICER PICKED UP A LOCAL SEX WORKER AND BROUGHT HER TO THE VEHICLE. THEY HAD A CONFRONTATION ABOUT HOW MUCH SHE WOULD BE PAID. THEN WHAT SHE DID NEXT WAS POSSIBLY THE ONLY REASON ANYONE WAS ABLE TO LEARN THE OFFICER WAS A CANADIAN. >>IN FEAR FOR HER LIFE SHE FLED FROM THE VEHICLE DURING WHICH SHE TOOK HIS UN BADGE.>>Reporter: WERE YOU CONFIDENT THAT THIS INCIDENT ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE?>>YES, WITHOUT A DOUBT.>>Reporter: THE HAITI EARTHQUAKE NEARLY A DECADE AGO LEFT AN ALREADY-IMPOVERISHED COUNTRY EVEN MORE VULNERABLE. WITH THE PROMISE TO HELP, SOME 625 POLICE OFFICERS FROM DIFFERENT POLICE FORCES HAVE M COHEIR AS PEACEKEEPERS, MOSTLY TO TRAIN THE HAITIAN POLICE. BECAUSE THERE’S A HUGE POWER IMBALANCE, THE OFFICERS ARE FORBIDDEN FROM GETTING SEXUALLY INVOLVED WITH THE HAITIANS. BUT NEW INTERNAL E-MAILS REVEALS THAT SIX CANADIAN POLICE OFFICERS HAVE ENGAGED IN SEXUAL MISCONDUCT AND THE UN WAS LOSING PATIENCE WITH CANADA. THE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONSHIP WAS BEING STRAINED ACCORDING TO AN E-MAIL FROM GLOBAL AFFAIRS TO THE RCMP DISCUSSING THE MATTER. ANOTHER DOCUMENT SHOWS THE UN SENT MULTIPLE REQUESTS TO CANADA. THEY WANTED ACCOUNTABILITY ON THE OFFICERS. THE UN WASN’T IMPRESSED WITH WHAT IT LEARNED. THE MOST AN OFFICER RECEIVED WAS A NINE-DAY SUSPENSION. AND IN ONE CASE THE OFFICER AVOIDED ACCOUNTABILITY BY RETIRING.>>THE PEOPLE I FEEL SORRY FOR ARE THE ACTUAL VICTIMS. THEY ARE FORGOTTEN.>>Reporter: REMEMBER, POLICE OFFICERS DEPLOYED TO HAITI COME FROM 30 POLICE FORCES ACROSS CANADA. IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG, IT’S THAT LOCAL POLICE FORCE THAT DECIDES ON THE DISCIPLINE, BUT IT’S THE RCMP THAT OVERSEAS THE PEACEKEEPING PROGRAM. THEY WOULDN’T AGREE TO AN ON-CAMERA INTERVIEW, BUT SPOKE TO US BY PHONE. WOULD YOU AGREE THE CURRENT SYSTEM HOLDING OFFICERS TO ACCOUNT IS BROKEN?>>THE CURRENT SYSTEM IS NOT BROKEN, ONE CASE IS TOO MANY, BUT WHEN THESE CASES TAKE PLACE, WE HAVE PROCESSES IN PLACE TO ENSURE ACCOUNTABILITY.>>Reporter: THE DOCUMENTS SPELLED OUT THAT ACCOUNTABILITY IS RATHER THIN. IF A PEACEKEEPING OFFICER COMMITS A CRIME WHILE ABROAD, IN MOST CASES HE CAN’T BE CHARGED BACK IN CANADA. IT’S A GAP IN CANADA’S LEGAL SYSTEM THAT’S REVEALED IN THE DOCUMENTS AS A SOURCE OF CONCERN FOR THE UN, SOMETHING THE UN HAS ACKNOWLEDGED TO CBC NEWS IT HAS ASKED CANADA TO FIX.>>CANADA COULD PASS LEGISLATION THAT WOULD MAKE THE CONDUCT OF ITS EMPLOYEES PROVIDED TO THE UN SUSCEPTIBLE TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION.>>Reporter: CANADA’S FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER ADMITS THERE IS A PROBLEM. >>IF AN OFFICER COMMITS A SEX CRIME AND BROUGHT BACK, HE CANNOT BE TRIED HERE. WHAT IS BEING DONE TO ADDRESS THESE ISSUES?>>IT IS IMPORTANT TO US TO ENSURE THAT WE HAVE A FRAMEWORK HERE IN CANADA THAT ALLOWS US TO DEAL WITH ANY OFFENCES COMMITTED OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY.

WE SEE HOW THAT RACE IS SHAPING UP.>>Reporter: I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING, THE OSCARS, SEPTEMBER HAS BARELY BEGUN. BETWEEN TIFF, THE RACE HAS ALREADY BEGUN. PREPARE YOURSELF FOR AN OSCAR RACE BETWEEN “JOE JOE RABBIT” “THE JOKER” AND JENNY FROM THE BLOCK. “HUSTLERS” IS A STORY ABOUT STRIPPERS SCAMMING THEIR PRODUCT. UNDER THE BUMP AND GRIND IS A FILM ABOUT INEQUALITY.>>THE STORY ITSELF TAKES A LOOK AT MEN AND WOMEN AND HOW WE’RE TREATED SO DIFFERENTLY IN SOCIETY AND THE THINGS WE HAVE TO DO FOR SURVIVAL.>>Reporter: SURVIVING IN A TIME OF ECONOMIC SOCIETY IS A BIG THEME THIS YEAR. NO MOVIE EXPRESSES IT MORE THAN “JOKER.” SET IN A BATTLE BETWEEN THE RICH AND THE POOR, JOAQUIM PHOENIX’S PERFORMANCE IS MASSIVE.

WHILE SOME PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT PRESENTING HITLER AS A BUFFOON, THEY BROUGHT UP CHARLIE CHAPLIN.>>MORE THAN EVER IT’S VIRAL THAT WE KEEP TELLING THESE STORIES AND REMINDING PEOPLE OF WHAT HAPPENED.>>Reporter: TORONTO AUDIENCES AGREED THAT SELECTING “JOE JOE ROBERT” AS A WINNER — >>IT’S A HUGE HONOUR AND A MASSIVE DEAL FOR ME.>>Reporter: A BIG DEAL BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO THE OSCARS, THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE PRIZE BECOMES BEST PICTURE. “JOE JOE RABBIT” COULD BE SHAKING THINGS UP. >>Adrienne: NEXT ON “THE NATIONAL”, A WELCOME WEDDING >>Andrew: THE QUEST FOR THE PERFECT WEDDING CAN SOMETIMES BOIL DOWN TO A SPECIAL INGREDIENT, SOMETHING THAT BOTH PARTNERS LOVE AND CAN SHARE.

IF YOU WATCH THE VIDEO, YOU SEE ME EXPLODE WITH EMOTION. [ APPLAUSE ]. [ LAUGHTER ]. >>Ian: SO LET ME SAY A COUPLE OF THINGS ON BEHALF OF ALAN DOYLE BECAUSE I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO MEET HIM INCLUDING IN ST. JOHN’S WHICH IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM. FANTASTIC GUY AND GOOD OF HIM TO DO THIS. SECOND THING IS NO ONE TWEET HIM 500 TIMES AND EXPECT HIM TO SHOW UP AT YOUR WEDDING. IT’S A ONE-TIME MAGICAL THING.>>Adrienne: SUPER GOOD GUY. HE WAS IN CHARLOTTETOWN FOR ALL OF THREE HOURS APPARENTLY, AND THE COUPLE OFFERED TO PAY FOR HIS TRAVEL AND HE SAID, NO, THIS IS ON ME.>>Andrew: HERE’S THE OTHER THING THAT THE COUPLE TOLD US. THIS MIGHT BE AN UNPOPULAR OPINION, BUT THE COUPLE SAID THEY WANT TO TAKE THE GUITAR BECAUSE IT’S BEEN SIGNED AND THEY’RE GOING TO PUT IT ON DISPLAY. I THINK THAT IS MAYBE THE WORST POSSIBLE USE FOR THAT GUITAR. IF YOU GET A GUITAR LIKE THAT, PLAY IT, PLEASE, EVERY SINGLE DAY. IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO PLAY THE GUITAR, LEARN.>>Adrienne: OKAY, JUDGIE.>>Ian: I DON’T APPROVE OF THOSE COMMENTS. ADRIENNE AND I WOULD LIKE TO RECUSE OURSELVES.>>Andrew: THAT’S THE NATIONAL FOR SEPTEMBER 16.>>Ian: GOOD
