BUT NOT EVERYONE IS CONVINCED SOMETHING SIMILAR SHOULD HAPPEN EVERYWHERE IN CANADA. >>WE WOULD WANT TO TAKE A LOOK HOW THE REGIONS WOULD BE EFFECTED COAST TO COAST BEFORE WE COULD COME OUT AND SAY ONE WAY OR THE OTHER WHETHER THIS WILL CREATE MORE SUPPLY. >>Reporter: NOT EVERY MARKET IS RED HOT LIKE VANCOUVER OR TORONTO. THERE AREN’T MANY FOREIGN SPECULATORS LOOKING TO BUY IN MONCTON OR SASKATOON. THIS MEASURE WOULD NOT IMPACT MUCH THERE. IN MARKETS OVERHEATED, B.C.’S EXPERIENCE SHOWS THE MODEL CAN PUT THE BRAKES ON RISING HOUSE PRICES AND EVEN ROLL THEM BACK. EVAN DYER, CBC NEWS, OTTAWA. >>Mike: 22 MINUTES FROM 7 O’CLOCK ON THIS THURSDAY EVENING. A LIVE LOOK AT SOGGY FALLS CREEK TONIGHT. THE RAIN INDEED RETURNED TO THE SOUTH COAST.

[ ♪♪♪ ] >>Anita: AN EASTERN SPAIN TORRENTIAL RAINS TRIGGERED DELUGE OF FLOOD WATERS, TAKING MANY BY SURPRISE. TWO PEOPLE FOUND DEAD IN AN OVERTURNED CAR THAT APPEARED TO HAVE BEEN SWEPT OFF THE ROAD BY RUSHING WATERS. COASTAL REGIONS NEAR THE MEDITERRANEAN ARE THE WORST HIT. OVERFLOWING WATERS FROM A SWOLLEN WATER RUSHED THROUGH THE STREETS, QUICKLY REACHING A HIGH AS THE FRONT DOOR OF SOME HOMES. CREWS HAD TO HELP MANY TRAPPED RESIDENTS, AUTHORITIES WARNING PEOPLE IN THE WORST EFFECTED AREAS TO STAY AT HOME. AND MANY SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED. CLASSES TODAY AND TOMORROW. >>Mike: OFFICIALS IN THE BAHAMAS NOW SAY 1,300 PEOPLE ARE MISSING IN THE WAKE OF HURRICANE DORIAN, AND NOT A HIGHER NUMBER AS ORIGINALLY REPORTED. MANY WHO WERE UNACCOUNTED FOR ARE SINCE LOCATED IN EMERGENCY SHELTERS. MASSIVE TENT CITIES ARE ERECTED TO HOUSE SURVIVORS. AID AGENCIES SAYS 15,000 PEOPLE STILL NEED HELP. BESIDES THE HUMAN COST, HURRICANE DORIAN IS ESTIMATED TO HAVE CAUSED $3 BILLION IN PROPERTY DAMAGE. TODAY THERE ARE REPORTS YET ANOTHER STORM IS ON THE HORIZON.>>Anita: BRETT SODERHOLM IS HERE NOW. BRETT, YOU’VE BEEN WATCHING THE STORM BERG DOWN ON THE BAHAMAS. WHAT ARE YOU SEEING? DOES THIS HAVE A NAME. >>Brett: NOT JUST YET. THE STORM IS CALLED POTENTIAL TROPICAL STORM CYCLONE 9. THIS IS THE FIRST STEP IN THE PROCESS. TO FIGURE OUT HOW STRONG IT’S GOING TO GET. IF IT INCREASES IN INTENSITY IN FORECAST IT WILL FIRST BE A TROPICAL DEPRESSION. AFTER IT GETS A NAME. IT IT REACHES NAME STATUS IT WILL BECOME ROBERTO. IT IS MAKING A BELINE ONCE AGAIN FOR THE NORTHWESTERN PORTION OF THE BAHAMAS. WITH THIS THE PRIMARY CONCERN IS JUST THE AMOUNT OF RAIN THAT REGION HAS BEEN DEVASTATED BY SUCH TORRENTIAL RAIN FROM DORIAN AND WIDESPREAD ACROSS THE ISLANDS POTENTIAL FOR YET ANOTHER 100 MILLIMETRES OVER THE REGION. THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE HELPING THE SITUATION ANY. ON THIS SIDE OF THE WORLD, WE ARE LOOKING AT RAIN OURSELVES. OF COURSE, NOWHERE NEAR AS MUCH AS THAT. IN GENERAL THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE ANOTHER 5-15 MILLIMETRES FOR THE DOWNTOWN CORE AND OVER TO BURNABY. ACTUALLY SEEING A LITTLE BIT OF HIGHER TOTAL UP IN ELEVATION TO THE NORTH AND WEST VAN. THAT IS GOING TO BE THE PRIMARY STORY FOR THAT. THIS WEEKEND IS, OF COURSE, AROUND THE CORNER. A LOT OF PEOPLE WONDERING HOW IT’S PLAYING OUT. AND WITH THAT, IF YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO ENJOYS THE RAIN AND COOLER TEMPERATURES, MAYBE YOU ENJOY BEING COSY. THAT’S WHAT THE WEEKEND HAS IN STORE. SHOWERS SPECIFICALLY ON SATURDAY. YOU COULD EQUATE TO WHAT WE SAW EARLIER TODAY. THROUGHOUT SATURDAY AND SUNDAY IT IS GOING TO START TO BE CLEARING UP A LITTLE BIT. BUT THERE’S STILL A BIT MORE RAIN IN THE FORECAST. I WANT TO WALK YOU THROUGH THE FIVE-DAY FORECAST. TO LET YOU KNOW FOR A LITTLE WHILE TEMPERATURES ON THE COOL SIDE. NOT JUST IN THE DAY EITHER. LOOK AT THIS. THE OVERNIGHT LOW ON SUNDAY IS LIKELY TO DROP TO 11. IF YOU LIKE TO COSY INSIDE WITH BOOK AND WARM FIREPLACE NEARBY THAT’S THE DAY TO DO IT. AND ALMOST A CRUEL TWIST OF IRONY, WE WOULD LOOKING AT TEMPERATURES GOING BACK TOWARDS SEASONAL MONDAY AND TUESDAY AND LOTS OF SUNSHINE RETURNING THAT POINT IN TIME. I KNOW, OF COURSE, WHEN WE COME DOWN TO WEEKENDS WE LIKE TO HAVE THEM NICE AND SUNNY AS POSSIBLE. AT THIS POINT IN TIME WE HAVE TO DO A TRADEOFF AND HOLD OFF UNTIL NEXT WEEK. >>Mike: ALL RIGHT.

[ Indiscernible ]>>Reporter: OPERATION YELLOW HAMMER SOUNDS LIKE THE TITLE OF A BOND FILM. AND MANY THINGS IN THE DOCUMENT COULD BE TAKEN FROM A BOND FILM TITLED “REASONABLE WORST CASE PLANNING ASSUMPTIONS.” BASICALLY THE DOCUMENT TO PLAN FOR NO-DEAL BREXIT. IT HAS A LOT OF PEOPLE WORRIED. WARNING OF THINGS LIKE LONG DELAYS AT THE U.K. PORTS OF TWO DAYS. SHORTAGES OF SOME FRESH FOOD ITEMS AND MEDICINES AND RISING ENERGY COSTS FOR ELECTRICITY AND GASOLINE AND CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE. POTENTIAL FOR PROTESTS, COUNTER PROTESTS AND POTENTIALLY RIOTS. THE GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO GREAT LENGTHS TO PUT IT INTO CONTEXT. SAYING IT’S NOT A PREDICTION, IT’S SIMPLY A PLANNING DOCUMENT.>>THE DOCUMENTS ARE A WORST CASE SCENARIO. PRODUCED SO THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE PLANS AND TAKE STEPS IN ORDER TO MITIGATE ANY OF THOSE CONSEQUENCES. OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST SIX WEEKS, THIS GOVERNMENT’S TAKEN CONSIDERABLE STEPS IN ORDER TO ENSURE IF THERE’S A NO-DEAL SCENARIO WE LEAVE IN THE SAFEST AND SECUREST WAY. >>Reporter: DESPITE ASSURANCES IT WENT OFF BIKE A BOMB — CONFIRMING IN THEIR MINDS THE WORST FEARS SEEING IT ON THE GOVERNMENT’S WEBSITE BECAUSE THE OPPOSITION AIDED BY SOME 21 CONSERVATIVE MPs WHO HAVE HAD A FALLING OUT WITH BORIS JOHNSON AND VOTED AGAINST HIM, HAD VOTED IN PARLIAMENT TO RELEASE THIS DOCUMENT.>>I’M SKEPTICAL THAT SOME OF THE STATEMENTS MADE TO PARLIAMENT MATCH WHAT IS ACTUALLY IN THE REPORT OR COVER EFFECTIVE OF IT. I SHOULD BE IN PARLIAMENT AT THE MOMENT WITH THE ABILITY TO INTERROGATE THE PRIME MINISTER AND MINISTERS. NOW WE’RE PROROGUED AND CAN’T DO THAT. >>Reporter: AS FOR HOW IT’S GOING AT THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE, 10 DOWNING STREET. AGAIN, TRYING TO PUT IT IN CONTEXT, SAYING IT’S A PLANNING DOCUMENT. BORIS JOHNSON WHEN HE TOOK OFFICE SAID HIS GOVERNMENT WOULD BE ON A WAR TO DEAL WITH A NO-DEAL BREXIT. THAT STATE OF READINESS CONTINUES, HOWEVER, BORIS JOHNSON IS SOFTENING HIS TONE SOMEWHAT SAYING HE WANTS A NEGOTIATED AGREEMENT REACHING OUT TO THE EU. THE EU FOR ITS PART HAS A PLAN OF ITS OWN.

DID HE WRONGLY PAY OFF STORMY DANIELS? IS HE PROFITING FROM HIS OWN PRESIDENCY? AND WHAT ABOUT HIS CAMPAIGN’S CONTACT WITH RUSSIA DURING THE 2016 CAMPAIGN? DEPENDING ON ITS FINDINGS, THE COMMITTEE COULD RECOMMEND IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. >>WE ARE ON OUR PATH, WHERE IT TAKES US IS WHERE WE WILL FOLLOW THE FACTS. THAT’S WHAT IT IS.>>Reporter: REPUBLICANS MEANWHILE ARE PUSHING BACK HARD.>>YOU KNOW, I’VE WANTED A LONG TIME TO BE ABLE TO SAY THIS, WELCOME TO FANTASY ISLAND. >>Reporter: ININSISTED IT’S ALL SMOKE AND MIRRORS THAT DEMOCRATS WANT TO LOOK TOUGH BUT DON’T ACTUALLY WANT TRUMP IMPEACHED BECAUSE ACCORDING TO POLLS NEITHER DO MOST AMERICANS.>>THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE IS A GIANT INSTAGRAM FILTER TO MAKE ACTIVE APPEAR SOMETHING IS HAPPENING THAT’S NOT. >>Reporter: NONETHELESS THE HEARINGS WITH WHATEVER EVIDENCE COMES FORWARD, WHATEVER WITNESSES HAVE TO SAY WILL BRING TALK OF IMPEACHMENT TO CAPITOL HILL MORE FORCEFULLY.
