[♪♪♪]>>Mike: TONIGHT ON CBC VANCOUVER NEWS …>>Anita: BROWNFACE BOMBSHELL. A 2001 PHOTO OF JUSTIN TRUDEAU AT A VANCOUVER PARTY ROCKS THE FEDERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN. ALSO …>>IT’S CONCERNING, FOR SURE. WE REALLY DON’T WANT OUR YOUTH TO BE USING THESE PRODUCTS.>>Mike: CANADA’S FIRST VAPING-RELATED ILLNESS PUTS A TEEN IN THE ICU. >>>AND …>>IT’S DEVASTATING. JUST DEVASTATING. >>Anita: AN ANGRY MOTHER. CHARGES STAYED AGAINST AN RCMP OFFICER WHO FATALLY SHOT A YOUNG SOUTH SURREY MAN. [♪♪♪]>>IN 2001, WHEN I WAS A TEACHER, I WAS IN VANCOUVER. I ATTENDED AN END-OF-THE-YEAR GALA WHERE THE THEME WAS ARABIAN NIGHTS AND I DRESSED UP IN AN ALADDIAN COSTUME AND PUT MAKEUP ON. I SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER, BUT I DIDN’T. AND I’M REALLY SORRY.>>Anita: A HASTY APOLOGY ON THE CAMPAIGN PLANE TONIGHT FROM LIBERAL LEADER JUSTIN TRUDEAU AFTER THIS PHOTO SURFACED OF HIM WEARING BROWN FACE MAKEUP. IT DATES BACK 18 YEARS TO WHEN HE WAS A TEACHER AT WEST POINT GREY ACADEMY IN VANCOUVER. >>Mike: GOOD EVENING. THE BACKLASH HAS BEEN SWIFT TONIGHT WITH THE PHOTO MAKING WAVES ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND RIGHT AROUND THE WORLD.>>Anita: DAN BURRITT JOINS US LIVE NOW ON THE STORY.>>Dan: JUSTIN TRUDEAU IS ACTING CONTRITE. HE LOOKS EMBARRASSED AND HE SAYS HE OUGHT TO HAVE KNOWN BETTER. THE PHOTO IS GETTING ATTENTION FROM MEDIA AROUND THE WORLD. TRUDEAU AND THE LIBERALS HAVE BEEN GOING AFTER OTHER CANDIDATES AND OTHER PARTIES FOR INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS AND PHOTOS IN THIS ELECTION, BUT NOW IT’S HIS TURN TO RESPOND. ASKED IF HE WOULD RESIGN TODAY, TRUDEAU SAYS HE IS GOING TO ASK CANADIANS TO FORGIVE HIM. HE ADMITS THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME HE HAS DRESSED UP LIKE THIS.>>Mr. TRUDEAU, IS THAT THE ONLY TIME IN YOUR LIFE YOU HAVE EVER DONE SOMETHING LIKE THAT?>>WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, I DRESSED UP AT A TALENT SHOW. WITH — WITH MAKEUP ON.>>Mike: JUSTIN TRUDEAU ON THE CAMPAIGN PLANE TONIGHT, DAN. WHAT ARE OTHER PARTY LEADERS SAYING ABOUT THIS?>>Dan: WE SPOKE WITH JAGMEET SINGH BEFORE JUSTIN TRUDEAU ISSUED HIS APOLOGY. SINGH IS NOT IMPRESSED.>>IT’S TROUBLING. IT’S INSULTING. ANYTIME WE HEAR EXAMPLES OF BROWN-FACING OR BLACK-FACING IT’S MAKING A MOCKERY OF SOMEONE AND THEIR LIVED EXPERIENCES. I THINK HE NEEDS TO ANSWER FOR IT. I THINK HE HAS GOT TO ANSWER THE QUESTION WHY HE DID THAT.>>Dan: ELIZABETH MAY SAYS IN A TWEET SHE IS SHOCKED BY THE RACISM SHOWN IN THE PHOTO AND HE MUST APOLOGIZE “FOR THE HARM DONE AND COMMIT TO LEARNING AND APPRECIATING THE REQUIREMENT TO MODEL SOCIAL JUSTICE LEADERSHIP AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT”. MEANWHILE, THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF MUSLIM CANADIANS CALLED THIS DEEPLY SADDENING AND CALLED ON TRUDEAU TO UNEQUIVOCALLY APOLOGIZE. THEY TWEETED, WE THANK THE PRIME MINISTER FOR HIS APOLOGY. IT CAME LESS THAN AN HOUR AFTER THE COUNCIL CALLED FOR HIM TO APOLOGIZE. PROMISES MADE. PROMISES KEPT. THAT IS THE WAY. WE’LL HAVE MUCH MORE ON THIS STORY TONIGHT AT 11. ANITA, MIKE. >>Anita: NOT ONLY AT 11, WE’LL ACTUALLY HAVE MORE ON THE STORY LATER IN THE SHOW INCLUDING REACTION FROM PEOPLE HERE IN VANCOUVER. THANK YOU, DAN.>>Dan: YOU BET. >>Mike: A TEEN IN ONTARIO WAS PUT ON LIFE SUPPORT AFTER VAPING. IT’S THE FIRST CANADIAN CASE TO LINK THE USE OF E-CIGARETTES TO RESPIRATORY ILLNESSES. >>Anita: IT COMES AFTER HUNDREDS OF SIMILAR REPORTS IN THE U.S. A NUMBER OF THEM FATAL. AS LIEN YEUNG REPORTS, THERE IS GROWING CONCERN HERE IN BC AND HOW TO STOP TEENS FROM THE HARMFUL PRACTICE.>>Reporter: CONGO CREAM OR ICED WATERMELON? THE MANY FLAVOURS OF THE VAPE WORLD AND IT’S GOT SOME HOOKED. HE SEES TEENS TRYING TO BUY FROM HIS STORE FAR TOO OFTEN. >>EVERY DAY. TEN MINUTES AGO. I THOUGHT HE WAS AN ADULT AND EVENTUALLY I ASKED HIM TO SHOW ME HIS ID. AND HE WAS ONLY 18 YEARS OLD.>>INSIDE A VAPE SHOP LIKE THIS, YOU HAVE TO BE AT LEAST 19 YEARS OLD AND THE PRODUCT CAN’T BE DISPLAYED OR SEEN FROM THE OUTSIDE AND SO WALLS ARE BLACKED OUT. >>Reporter: BUT DESPITE THESE RULES, TEENS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE EMBRACING VAPING IN A BIG WAY AND GETTING THEIR HANDS ON THE PRODUCTS. IN ONTARIO, A TEEN NEEDED TO BE PUT ON LIFE SUPPORT AFTER DOING IT DAILY.>>AS FAR AS WE ARE AWARE, THIS IS THE FIRST CASE OF VAPING-RELATED ILLNESS REPORTED IN CANADA. >>Reporter: IT COMES AFTER MORE THAN 300 CASES OF SEVERE ILLNESS IN THE U.S., SOME OF THEM THE TEENS DIED. IN 2013 THE BC ADD LESSENT HEALTH SURVEY FOUND 16% OF GRADE 7 THROUGH 11 STUDENTS HAVE VAPED.>>PEOPLE WERE TELLING US IT IS COOL TO VAPE.>>Reporter: THIS RESEARCHER WORKED WITH TEENS TO ANALYZE THAT DATA, AND SHE HAS HEARD MISCONCEPTIONS. SOME TEENS DON’T THINK VAPING IS HARMFUL AT ALL. OTHERS SAY BECAUSE THERE IS LITTLE LONG-TERM RESEARCH, YOU CAN’T PROVE YET IF IT’S BAD FOR YOU.>>YOUNG PEOPLE WILL MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS WHEN THEY HAVE THE INFORMATION IN FRONT OF THEM. BUT WE AS ADULTS ARE SCRAMBLING TO PULL THAT INFORMATION TOGETHER.>>WE ARE CAUGHT IN THIS TRICKY SITUATION OF REGULATING THIS PRODUCT IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT BECOMES LESS ATTRACTIVE TO YOUTH, BUT REMAINS ATTRACTIVE FOR ADULT ADDICTED SMOKERS WHO CAN’T OR WON’T QUIT SMOKING CIGARETTES. >>Reporter: HE ARGUES MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE TO REGULATE THE PRODUCTS AND ITS MARKETING. THE PROVINCE AGREES AND SAYS MORE WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE. >>DOING THE WORK WILL INVOLVE TOUGHER LAWS. DOING THE WORK WILL INVOLVE MORE ENFORCEMENT. DOING THE WORK WILL INVOLVE ENGAGING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE. >>Reporter: EXPERTS SAY DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH. JUST PUT DOWN THE VAPE IF YOU CAN. LIEN YEUNG, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Mike: AND WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS LINKED TO VAPING ON THE RISE, INDIA IS CLAMPING DOWN ON THE INDUSTRY AS A WHOLE.>>PRODUCTION, MANUFACTURING, IMPORT/EXPORT, TRANSPORT, OR SALE OR EVEN DISTRIBUTION AND STORAGE AND ADVERTISEMENT RELATING E-CIGARETTES ARE ALL BANNED.>>Mike: THE BAN IS BEING IMPOSED THROUGH AN EXECUTIVE ORDER OF CABINET AND MUST BE APPROVED BY LAWMAKERS IN THE NEXT SESSION OF PARLIAMENT LATER NEXT YEAR — THIS YEAR, RATHER. THOSE WHO BREAK THE NEW LAW COULD FACE JAIL TIME OF UP TO THREE YEARS. $7,000 FINE OR BOTH. CABINET SAYS THIS STEP IS NEEDED TO ENSURE E-CIGARETTE USE DOESN’T BECOME AN EPIDEMIC IN THE COUNTRY. IT’S NOT CLEAR WHETHER THE ACTUAL USE OF E-CIGARETTES WILL ALSO BE BANNED. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: MEANWHILE, TWO U.S. STATES ARE ALSO CRACKING DOWN ON E-CIGARETTES. NEW YORK AND MICHIGAN INCLUDED. IN NEW YORK, ONLY MENTHOL AND TOBACCO FLAVOURS WILL STILL BE ON THE SHELVES. MICHIGAN IS GOING FURTHER, BANNING MENTHOL FLAVOURS AS WELL. THE BANS COME AFTER A SEVENTH PERSON DIED FROM A VAPING-RELATED ILLNESS IN THAT COUNTRY. U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS PUBLICLY DISCUSSED IMPLEMENTING A SIMILAR BAN NATIONWIDE.>>Mike: FAMILY AND SUPPORTERS OF A YOUNG MAN SHOT TO DEATH BY AN RCMP OFFICER IN 2015 ARE IN SHOCK TONIGHT. CHARGES AGAINST THE OFFICER HAVE NOW BEEN STAYED. CONSTABLE ELIZABETH GUCHARAN WAS CHARGED FOR SHOOTING 20-YEAR-OLD HUDSON BROOKS, DYING AFTER WHAT POLICE DESCRIBED AS A PHYSICAL STRUGGLE OUTSIDE THE DETACHMENT. BROOKS WAS UNARMED, SHIRTLESS AND SHOELESS AND BEHAVING ERRATICALLY AFTER CONSUMING ALCOHOL AND COCAINE. CHARGES WERE STAYED BECAUSE CROWN DECIDED THE OFFICER BEHAVED REASONABLY IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES. >>I’M DEVASTATED. DEVASTATED. SHOOTS A YOUNG BOY NINE TIMES. NINE TIMES AT CLOSE RANGE WHILE HE HAS SHOES AND NO SHIRT, NO SHOES, NOTHING AND YOU CALL IT EXCITED DELIRIUM AND THAT’S WHY YOU ARE NOT DOING THIS? HALF OF CANADA BETTER WATCH OUT BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE WALKING DOWN THE STREET AND YOU NEED HELP, YOU’LL GET SHOT NINE TIMES. GO THROUGH FOUR AND A HALF YEARS OF COMPLETE HELL. >>Mike: JENNIFER BROOKS THANKED THE COMMUNITY FOR ITS SUPPORT IN HER FIGHT FOR JUSTICE FOR HER SON.>>Anita: THE RCMP ARE SEARCHING FOR TWO SUSPECTS AND A STOLEN CAR AFTER A CARJACKING AT UBC. A WOMAN TOLD POLICE SHE WAS RETURNING TO HER CAR ON THE TENTH FLOOR OF THE PARKADE WHEN TWO MEN APPROACHED HER. ONE PRODUCED A SMALL HANDGUN AND DEMANDED HER KEYS. THE MEN ESCAPED IN THE WOMAN’S CAR, A 2007 KIA SPECTRA. THE LICENCE IS 308 PSG. POLICE WARN THE PUBLIC TO CALL 911 AND NOT TO APPROACH THE CAR IF IT’S SEEN.>>Mike: NEW PICTURES OF THE SEVERED CABLE FROM THE SEA-TO-SKY GONDOLA HAVE BEEN RELEASED AS PART OF A REPORT CONFIRMING THE DAMAGE WAS INTENTIONAL. THE REPORT FROM TECHNICAL SAFETY BC SAYS THE CABLE WAS PARTIALLY CUT BEFORE THE REMAINING STRANDS SNAPPED UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THE GONDOLA CABINS AND THAT OTHERWISE THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THE CABLE WAS DEFECTIVE IN ANY WAY. PARTS OF THE REPORT INCLUDING HOW THE CABLE WAS CUT ARE REDACTED IN LIGHT OF THE RCMP INVESTIGATION. TECHNICAL SAFETY BC CALLS THE VANDALISM EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND THAT WHOEVER CUT THE CABLE AND ANYONE NEAR THE GONDOLA CABINS WHEN THEY FELL COULD HAVE BEEN BADLY HURT OR KILLED. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: WELL, PEOPLE USE DRUGS ON VANCOUVER’S DOWN THE EASTSIDE ARE BEING NEGATIVELY IMPACTED BY THE POLICE ACCORDING TO A NEW STUDY. >>Mike: BUT NOT EVERYONE AGREES WITH THE STUDY.>>Reporter: THE SIGHT OF POLICE OFFICERS IN THE DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE IS COMMON. ON PATROL, WALKING THE BEAT, MAKING ARRESTS. BUT A NEW STUDY SAYS THAT VERY PRESENCE IS PUTTING PEOPLE’S LIVES AT RISK.>>SOME OF THE ROUTINE POLICING PRACTICES, LIKE PARKING OUTSIDE OF AN OVERDOSE PREVENTION SITE, LIKE STOPPING PEOPLE AND RUNNING THEIR WARRANT, LIKE AN INTENSIFIED PRESENCE IN AND AROUND OVERDOSE PREVENTION SITES, ALL OF THIS MEANS PEOPLE DON’T GO TO THEM. >>Reporter: SOME ALSO REPORTED THAT THEY HESITATE WHEN IT’S TIME TO CALL PARAMEDICS FOR FEAR THAT POLICE MAY SHOW UP AS WELL. BUT NOT EVERYONE AGREES WITH THE STUDY CALLING IT OUT OF DATE AND NOT REFLECTIVE OF THE CURRENT SITUATION.>>WE ALSO HAVE EXPANDED OVERDOSE PREVENTION SERVICES IN VANCOUVER SINCE THE STUDY TOOK PLACE, AND THE DATA SHOWS THAT MANY, MANY PEOPLE ARE VISITING THESE SITES. IN FACT, THE NUMBERS HAVE INCREASED DRAMATICALLY SINCE THE STUDY TOOK PLACE AND THAT’S EVIDENCE THAT PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO ACCESS THE SITES. >>Reporter: ANOTHER CHANGE HAS BEEN LEGAL PROTECTION FOR THOSE CALLING 911 FOR AN OVERDOSE. AND WHILE SHE SEES SOME TRUTH IN THE STUDY, SHE STOPPED SHORT AFTER BLAMING POLICE, SAYING THEIR ROLE IN THE DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE IS INSTRUMENTAL. >>WE ALSO HAVE IMPLEMENTED NEW TREATMENT SERVICES IN VANCOUVER WITH FUNDING FROM BOTH THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, AND THE POLICE DEPARTMENT IS NOW HELPING US TO DIRECT PEOPLE TO THOSE TREATMENT SERVICES RATHER THAN TO THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.>>Reporter: BUT SOME RESIDENTS IN THE DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE SAY THERE’S STILL A LONG WAY TO GO. >>IT’S NOT GOOD, AND A LOT OF YOUR NORMAL, AVERAGE FOLKS WILL BRUSH IT OFF, NO, LIKE, YOU PROBABLY — THEY DESERVED IT, YOU KNOW, AND SORT OF THIS NAIVE IDEA THAT WE CAN TRUST THE POLICE, BUT THE FACT IS, UM, THERE IS KIND OF — YEAH, A CULTURE OF BULLYINESS. >>Reporter: WE REACHED OUT TO THE VANCOUVER POLICE FOR COMMENT BUT THEY DECLINED. CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: THE BROADWAY SUBWAY EXTENSION IN VANCOUVER IS BECOMING A LITTLE CLEARER TODAY. THE PROVINCE HAS NOW REVEALED THE LOCATIONS OF THE STATIONS ON THE LINE. THE EXTENSION FROM VCC CLARK WILL HAVE SIX STOPS. GREAT NORTHERN WAY, MOUNT PLEASANT, BROADWAY CITY HALL, FAIRVIEW, VGH, SOUTH GRANVILLE AND ARBUTUS. THE LAST FIVE STATIONS WILL BE ON THE UNDERGROUND PORTION OF THE LINE. BROADWAY CITY HALL WILL CONNECT THE EXTENSIONS TO THE CANADA LINE. THE PROJECT IS BUDGETED TO COST $2.8 BILLION. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: METEOROLOGIST BRETT SODERHOLM JOINS US NOW WITH OUR FIRST CHECK OF THE FORECAST. THAT TURNED OUT TO BE PRETTY NICE DAY TODAY.>>Brett: YEAH, DEFINITELY WAS. IT WAS A NICE SURPRISE. TO SEE THE SUN AND TO FEEL IT FIRST THING THIS MORNING. BUT IT GIVE ME A REASON TO THINK ABOUT HOW RAINY IT HAS BEEN SO FAR THIS MONTH. AND I WANTED TO CRUNCH THE NUMBERS FOR YOU. IN VANCOUVER AT LEAST, THROUGHOUT SEPTEMBER, WE WOULD AVERAGE ABOUT 51 MILLIMETRES OF RAIN. WE’RE ONLY GETTING INTO ABOUT THE THIRD WEEK NOW OF SEPTEMBER, AND WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN 65 MILLIMETRES. WE ARE ABOVE AVERAGE AND IN FACT, A THIRD OF THAT FELL ON A SINGLE DAY, AND THAT WAS LAST THURSDAY. THAT BROKE THE DRY SPELL THAT WE HAD BEEN SEEING FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH. NOW, IS THERE MORE RAIN IN THE FORECAST? THERE WILL BE A LITTLE BIT, BUT FOR THE MOST PART IT IS GOING TO BE A DRYING TREND UNTIL WE GET TO THE WEEKEND. YOU CAN SEE RIGHT HERE ON THE SATELLITE AND RADAR IMAGERY THERE ISN’T A LOT GOING ON THERE. NICE BLUE SKIES, IN FACT, AND TEMPERATURES AS FAR AS THEY ARE CONCERNED ARE VERY CLOSE TO SEASONAL. DEFINITELY A NICE CHANGE FROM WHAT WE HAVE BEEN SEEING A LITTLE BIT EARLIER ON. NOW OUR TEMPERATURES FOR THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, THESE ARE GOING TO BE GETTING DOWN TO THE LOW SIDE. IT IS WORTH MENTIONING THAT IF YOU ARE OUT TOWARD RICHMOND, NEW WEST, EVEN SURREY, WE COULD GO DOWN TO SINGLE DIGITS MAKING IT ABOUT 9° FOR THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD. BUT FOR THE DOWNTOWN CORE AT LEAST WE WILL BE LOOKING CLOSER TO ABOUT 12°. AND AS FAR AS TEMPERATURES TOMORROW ARE CONCERNED, WE’RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AGAIN VERY CLOSE TO SEASONAL. LOTS OF 18s ALL ACROSS THE REASONING, INCLUDING THE TRI-CITIES. WANT TO EMPHASIZE WE ARE LOOKING AT A MOSTLY CLOUDY DAY TOMORROW BUT ONLY HAVE THE SLIGHTEST RISK FOR SHOWERS INTO THE LATE EVENING HOURS. I’LL HAVE MORE ON THAT WHEN I COME BACK.>>Anita: THANKS, BRETT. >>Brett: YOU ARE WELCOME. >>Mike: WELL, THEY BESTED THE OTTAWA REDBLACKS LAST FRIDAY, BUT THE BC LIONS, WELL, THEY ARE STILL THE WORST TEAM IN CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE. >>Anita: THERE IS NO DENYING IT. WITH A RECORD OF 2-10. THE TEAM IS STRUGGLING WITH LOW ATTENDANCE, BUT AS JESSE JOHNSTON EXPLAINS, IF YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF GETTING THE CROWD PUMPED UP, IT HELPS IF YOU ARE A LITTLE WILD.>>WHAT’S UP! [♪♪♪]>>Reporter: HIS REAL NAME IS PATRICK THOMAS, BUT … [ Yelling ] [ Laughter ]>>Reporter: FOR OBVIOUS REASONS, HE IS BETTER KNOWN AS CRAZY PETE. FOR 15 YEARS, CRAZY P. HAS BEEN THE BC LIONS’ HYPE MAN. AND THIS SEASON HAS BEEN A CHALLENGE. THE LIONS ARE IN LAST PLACE AND THEY AVERAGE FEWER THAN 18,000 FANS A GAME. [ Crowd Noise ]>>WE’RE READY TO EAT!>>YEAH! [ Drumming ]>>Reporter: BUT IF YOU FOCUS ON THE HYPE MAN INSTEAD OF THE STANDINGS AND EMPTY SEATS, YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW BC’S RECORD IS 2-10. >>YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAD A CHILD, A SON OR A DAUGHTER, AND THEY ARE PLAYING, YOU KNOW, SPORTS AND THEY WEREN’T WINNING, YOU KNOW, WOULD YOU JUST GIVE UP ON YOUR KID? WOULD YOU, YOU KNOW, OH, THEY SUCK AND NOT BE A PART OF THAT?>>Reporter: THIS FITS BECAUSE IN A WAY SOME OF THE FANS HERE HAVE BECOME FAMILY.>>THIS IS MY FRIEND CRAZY A. >>I WAS HIS FIRST FAN.>>FIRST FAN?>>4, 5 YEARS OLD. >>YEP. >>Reporter: CRAZY P. MET CRAZY A. WHEN SHE WAS A LITTLE GIRL. NOW SHE IS 17. WHEN THEY MET, SHE WAS INTRODUCING HIM TO HER DOLLS. TODAY? HE IS MEETING HER BOYFRIEND. THEN THERE’S ETHAN WHO HAS BEEN HIS PAL SINCE HE WAS A LITTLE BOY. NOW HE IS A COLLEGE STUDENT. ETHAN IS NON-VERBAL, SO HE WROTE DOWN WHAT CRAZY P.’S FRIENDSHIP MEANS TO HIM AND GOT HIS BUDDY JOSH TO READ IT FOR US. >>PEOPLE OFTEN TALK TO ME LIKE I’M A BABY OR UNINTELLIGENT BUT P. HAS ALWAYS TREATED ME LIKE A REGULAR GUY. JUST SUCH A GREAT GUY. SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE NICE TO ME PAUSE THEY WANT TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES BUT P. MAKES ME FEEL LIKE HE — HE GENUINELY LIKES ME.>>Reporter: IF YOU ARE AT A GAME AND YOU SEE THE GUY WHO LOOKS LIKE HE GUZZLED A TRIPLE ESPRESSO AND CHASED IT WITH A RED BULL, NOW YOU KNOW WHY HE IS SCREAMING. THE CROWDS ARE SPARSE BUT WHEN YOU HAVE FRIENDS LIKE ETHAN TO KEEP YOU COMING BACK, YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE CRAZY TO QUIT. JESSE JOHNSTON, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Anita: EVERY TIME NEEDS A CRAZY P. >>Mike: EVERY TEAM DOES. HE IS RIGHT. GOT TO CHEER YOUR TEAM THROUGH THE GOOD AND THE BAD. >>Anita: ALWAYS. IF YOU ARE A TRUE FAN, YES. THAT’S WHAT YOU DO. >>Mike: EXACTLY. >>Anita: ALL RIGHT. YOU CAN WATCH THIS NEWSCAST AND ALL OF CBC’S OTHER AWARD-WINNING CONTENT WHEREVER YOU GO. DOWNLOAD THE FREE CBC GEM APP. >>Mike: ALSO ON FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE, AND INSTAGRAM. FOLLOW US ON ALL THOSE PLATFORMS FOR EXTRA CONTENT YOU WON’T SEE ON TV. >>>HE SEES HE IS DEEPLY SORRY AND REGRETS IT.

THANKS FOR STAYING WITH US. A CANADIAN COMEDIAN IS HOPING TO ADD A DIFFERENT VOICE AND A DIFFERENT KIND OF SHOW. >>Anita: YOUTUBE STAR LILLY SINGH WITH HER MUCH-ANTICIPATED VIEW THIS WEEK ON NBC. AND MORE ON WHAT SETS HER APART. [♪♪♪] [♪ Rapping ♪]>>Reporter: CANADIAN COMEDIAN LILLY SINGH SAYS SHE IS READY TO DISRUPT THE LATE NIGHT LINE-UP. AND THE STAR DID JUST THAT WITH A PREMIERE OF HER NEW SHOW A LITTLE LATE WITH LILLY SINGH. ♪ USED TO BE A BOYS CLUB ♪>>Reporter: THE ONLY WOMAN OF COLOUR TO CURRENTLY HOST A LATE NIGHT SHOW ON A TRADITIONAL NETWORK. SINGH TOOK OVER LONG-TIME COAST CARSON DALY’S 1:35 A.M. SLOT WHICH HE HELD FOR 18 SEASONS. >>COME ON. I’M MORE THAN JUST A BISEXUAL WOMAN OF COLOUR, OKAY. IT’S A COMPLETE COINCIDENCE THAT I CHOSE A NETWORK WHO’S LOGO IS ALSO A PRIDE FLAG. >>Reporter: THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER SAID IT WAS WHO THEY NEEDED. >>I THINK YOU CAN TURN ON ANY ONE OF THE SHOWS RIGHT NOW AND FOR THE MOST PART, YOU ARE GETTING THE SAME MESSAGING, YOU KNOW, EVERY SINGLE DAY.>>Reporter: BUT POLITICS IS WHAT MANY OF HER LATE NIGHT COUNTERPARTS HAVE USED TO BOLSTER THEIR AUDIENCES. IRWIN BELIEVES SINGH’S PERSPECTIVES AND VOICE IS WHAT VIEWERS WANT. >>YOU ARE NOT TUNING IN BECAUSE OF WHO IS ON THE SHOW THAT NIGHT. YOU ARE TUNING IN BECAUSE YOU HAVE CONNECTED WITH THAT PARTICULAR PIECE OF TALENT. >>LISTEN, BUDDY. WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? OH, MY HORMONES. [ Laughter ]>>Reporter: NBC HOPES AUDIENCES CONNECT WITH SINGH IN THE SAME WAY SHE CONNECTED WITH 15 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS ON HER YOUTUBE CHANNEL. AN AUDIENCE SHE BUILT ON HER OWN. >>TREMENDOUS CROSSOVER POTENTIAL BECAUSE SHE ALREADY DEMONSTRATED THE YOUTUBER, THE ABILITY TO MAKE A LOT OF CONTENT, A LOT OF VERSATILE CONTENT THAT RESONATES WITH A LARGE FAN BASE. >>Reporter: ANOTHER CHALLENGE AHEAD: ADAPTING FROM THE WILD, WILD WEST OF YOUTUBE TO NETWORK TV.>>YOU GOT THIS. >>IN TERMS OF HER ACTUAL CHARACTERS AND SOME OF THE THEMES FROM HER CHANNEL, IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW SHE TRANSITIONS INTO THE NEW MEDIUM WOULD ALIENATING OLD FANS. >>I KNOW WE JUST STARTED THE INTERVIEW. BUT, LIKE, HOW DO YOU THINK I’M DOING THUS FAR?>>YOU ARE KILLING IT. >>YOU THINK SO?>>Reporter: IT’S UP TO SINGH TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING. TASHAUNA REID, CBC NEWS, TORONTO. >>Mike: LOVE HER. IT’S GREAT, HEY? A WOMAN!>>Anita: AND A BROWN WOMAN. >>Mike: ON NETWORK TV. >>Anita: IT’S AMAZING. I’M NOT SURE I’LL BE UP AT 1:20 IN THE MORNING TO WATCH. >>Mike: THAT’S A PVR FOR US, I THINK. FOR SURE. COMING UP NEXT, WE’LL HAVE THE LATEST ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL CONTROVERSY INVOLVING JUSTIN TRUDEAU RIGHT HERE IN A SECOND. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: BACK TO OUR TOP STORY NOW. LIBERAL LEADER JUSTIN TRUDEAU RUSHED TO APOLOGIZE FOR A PHOTO THAT EMERGED SHOWING HIM WEARING BROWNFACE. >>Mike: IN A SCRUM WITH REPORTERS ON HIS CAMPAIGN PLANE TONIGHT, HE TOLD CANADIANS HE IS SORRY THAT HE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.>>Anita: BUT HE HAS ALSO SAID THAT IT IS NOT THE ONLY SUCH INCIDENT IN HIS PAST. AS DAVID COCHRANE EXPLAINS, IT’S A HIT TO TRUDEAU’S IMAGE AT A CRUCIAL TIME.>>Reporter: THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT HOW CANADIANS ARE USED TO SEEING A PRIME MINISTER WHO LIKES TO SAY THAT DIVERSITY IS CANADA’S STRENGTH. JUSTIN TRUDEAU IN A TURBAN AND ROBE, DARK MAKEUP ON HIS FACE, NECK, AND HANDS. CERTAINLY NOT HOW TRUDEAU WANTS TO BE SEEN IN AN ELECTION CAMPAIGN.>>I DRESSED UP IN AN ALADDIAN COSTUME AND PUT MAKEUP ON. I SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER, BUT I DIDN’T. AND I’M REALLY SORRY.>>Reporter: TIME MAGAZINE PUBLISHED THE PICTURE WHICH WAS TAKEN AT AN ARABIAN NIGHTS-THEMED EVENT AT A SCHOOL HE TAUGHT AT IN 2001. IT FORCED TRUDEAU TO HOLD AN EMERGENCY NEWS CONFERENCE ABOARD HIS PLANE AT THE HALIFAX AIRPORT TO TRY TO EXPLAIN HIMSELF.>>IS THAT THE ONLY TIME IN YOUR LIFE YOU HAVE EVER DONE SOMETHING LIKE THAT?>>WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, I DRESSED UP AT A TALENT SHOW AND SANG DAY-O WITH MAKEUP ON. I’M GOING TO BE ASKING CANADIANS TO FORGIVE ME FOR WHAT I DID. I SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT. I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT. IT WAS A DUMB THING TO DO. I’M DISAPPOINTED IN MYSELF. I’M PISSED OFF AT MYSELF FOR HAVING DONE IT. I WISH I HADN’T DONE IT, BUT I DID IT AND I APOLOGIZE FOR IT.>>Reporter: TRUDEAU HAS MADE DIVERSITY A BEDROCK PRINCIPLE OF HIS GOVERNMENT, EMPHASIZING IT IN HIS CABINET WHERE CANADIANS OF DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS HOLD MAJOR ROLES. DURING THIS CAMPAIGN, THE LIBERALS HAVE REPEATEDLY ATTACKED THE CONSERVATIVES FOR CONTROVERSIAL SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS, MANY OF THEM RACIALLY INSENSITIVE. BUT NOW THIS. IT’S BEEN A CORE TACTIC OF THE CAMPAIGN TO THIS POINT TO TRY TO PAINT ANDREW SCHEER AND HIS PARTY AS RACIALLY INTOLERANT AND NOW IT’S THE LIBERALS WHO ARE SCRAMBLING TO CONTAIN A BOMBSHELL AS IT’S THEIR LEADER WHO CHAMPIONS DIVERSITY AND MULTICULTURALISM WHO WAS PHOTOGRAPHED DRESSED IN BROWN-FACE AND HE HAS DONE IT MORE THAN ONCE. DAVID COCHRANE, CBC NEWS, HALIFAX.>>Mike: NOW BEFORE THE BOMBSHELL PICTURE CAME OUT, TRUDEAU SPENT MUCH OF THE DAY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL MAKING PROMISES FOR SENIORS WHILE THE NDP AND CONSERVATIVES MADE PROMISES TO APPEAL TO ALL AGES. >>Anita: WHICH PARTY IS GOING TO DO ENOUGH TO WIN OVER OLDER VOTERS? KAYLA HOUNSELL HAS THE STORY. >>Reporter: THESE SENIORS WERE PLAYING BRIDGE WHILE JUSTIN TRUDEAU WAS MAKING HIS SENIORS ANNOUNCEMENT, BUT THEY ARE ENGAGED. SOME PROUDLY DISPLAYING THEIR COLOURS, AND THEY HAVE OPINIONS ON TRUDEAU’S PROMISE TO BOOST OLD-AGE SECURITY AND THE CANADA PENSION PLAN. >>I THINK THAT’S REALLY GREAT FOR MY GENERATION, BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE IS A WHOLE OTHER GENERATION COMING BEHIND US THAT HAVE GOT SO LITTLE. >>Reporter: THAT’S WHY JOANNE COFFEE SAYS HER NUMBER ONE PRIORITY THIS TIME AROUND IS NOT SOMETHING TRADITIONALLY SEEN AS A SENIORS’ ISSUE: ENVIRONMENT. >>I VOTED LIBERAL BEFORE. I VOTED NDP. I VOTED THE MARXIST-LENNIST PARTY OF CANADA BUT I’M GOING TO VOTE ELIZABETH MAY THIS TIME.>>Reporter: LORRAINE IS CONCERNED ABOUT A NATIONAL PHARMACARE PROGRAM. >>BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY, MANY SENIORS WHO CANNOT AFFORD THEIR PRESCRIPTIONS. >>Reporter: BUT SHE TOO SAYS THE ENVIRONMENT IS HER PRIORITY.>>BECAUSE AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED, IF THAT ISN’T DEALT WITH, THEN NOTHING ELSE IS GOING TO BE. NOTHING ELSE IS GOING TO MATTER.>>Reporter: RON AGREES THEIR GENERATION HAS ALREADY BEEN DEALT A PRETTY GOOD HAND IN LIFE. IT’S TIME TO FOCUS ON THE FUTURE.>>ONE OF MY MAIN CONCERNS IS THAT WE CAN’T SEEM TO GET CANDIDATES WHO ARE PREPARED TO ACT ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE. THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO BE OUT FOR THEIR BEST INTERESTS. >>Reporter: HE HASN’T QUITE DECIDED HOW HE’LL VOTE. HE HAS NARROWED IT DOWN TO TWO CHOICES AND WILL BE WATCHING CLOSELY FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE CAMPAIGN. KAYLA HOUNSELL, CBC NEWS, HALIFAX.>>Anita: A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT PUT ON LIFE SUPPORT AFTER USING E-CIGARETTES CONSISTENTLY. AFTER THE BREAK, WE DIVE DEEPER INTO THE CONCERNS AND WARNINGS.

NOW HUDSON BROOKS’ MOTHER OUTRAGED. >>THERE SHOULD BE MORE REGULATIONS IN TERMS OF HEALTH WARNINGS, IN TERMS OF BANNING SOME OF THOSE PROVING TO BE HARMFUL. >>Anita: A TEEN PUT ON LIFE SUPPORT AFTER WHAT’S BEING CALLED CANADA’S FIRST VAPING-RELATED ILLNESS. HE IS NOW OFF AND RECOVERING AT HOME, BUT THE CASE IS PROMPTING SOME BIG WARNINGS.>>>SEVEN DEATHS IN THE U.S. HAVE BEEN LINKED TO VAPING AS WELL AS HUNDREDS OF CASES OF ILLNESS.>>Mike: AS KATIE NICHOLSON SHOWS US, THOSE CONCERNS, AS YOU HAVE SEEN, HAVE COME TO CANADA.>>Reporter: ANDREW IS ALL ABOUT HEALTHY LIVING. EXCEPT FOR ONE LITTLE THING. HE VAPES.>>THE ONLY THING IT KIND OF GIVES ME SOMETIMES IS A BUZZ. >>Reporter: THAT BUZZ KILLED TODAY BY CANADA’S FIRST CASE OF VAPING-RELATED ILLNESS. IN A LONDON-AREA TEEN.>>QUITE A SEVERE ILLNESS COURSE INCLUDING ICU LIFE SUPPORT. THE INDIVIDUAL RECOVERED.>>Reporter: OFFICIALS WOULDN’T SAY WHICH VAPING PRODUCT THE PATIENT USED OR HOW MUCH OF IT. IN THE U.S., WHERE THERE HAVE BEEN NEARLY 400 CASES OF VAPING-RELATED ILLNESSES AND 7 DEATHS, THE CENTRES FOR DISEASE CONTROL FOUND MOST CASES INVOLVED THE USE OF THC PRODUCTS. THAT’S INFORMATION THIS VAPE STORE OWNER SAYS IS CRUCIAL.>>I THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO SEE WHAT THE ACTUAL PRODUCT WAS THAT’S CAUSED THIS DAMAGE, AND WE GET TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER. >>Reporter: DESPITE THAT, VAPING RESEARCHER DAVID HAMMOND SAYS TWO THINGS ARE CLEAR. >>SO NUMBER ONE, WE NEED TO GET A BETTER HANDLE OF THE INDUSTRIES AND WHAT’S IN THESE PRODUCTS. NUMBER TWO, IT JUST REINFORCES THE MESSAGE THAT YOUNG PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE VAPING. THIS IS NOT A BENIGN OR HARMLESS ACTIVITY.>>Reporter: IT’S SOMETHING ONTARIO WILL NOW KEEP TABS ON. TODAY THE HEALTH MINISTER ORDERED HOSPITALS TO TRACK ALL SERIOUS CASES OF VAPING-RELATED ILLNESSES. >>TO UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT THE SCOPE OF THE PROBLEM IS.>>Reporter: IT’S SOMETHING ALBERTA IS ALREADY DOING AND JUST THIS AFTERNOON THE BC HEALTH MINISTER CALLED FOR MORE TO BE DONE TO CONTROL WHO IS VAPING WHAT.>>TOUGHER LAWS. DOING THE WORK WILL INVOLVE MORE ENFORCEMENT. DOING THE WORK WILL INVOLVES ENGAGING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE. >>Reporter: BACK AT THE GYM, NEWS SINKING IN AND MAKING AN IMPACT. >>I’M GOING TO QUIT BY DECEMBER BECAUSE, I DON’T KNOW, I FEEL LIKE — >>THAT’S GOOD. I’M PROUD OF YOU. >>YEAH. >>Reporter: A LITTLE LESS PUFFING AND A LITTLE MORE HUFFING AND PUFFING. KATIE NICHOLSON, CBC NEWS, TORONTO. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: A LIVE LOOK AT DOWNTOWN LOOKING NORTH AT 6:32 ON THIS WEDNESDAY EVENING. PLENTY OF SUNSHINE ON THE SOUTH COAST TODAY BUT DON’T GET TOO USED TO IT. BRETT WILL TELL US WHEN THE RAIN WILL RETURN NE [♪♪♪]>>Mike: FOREST FIRES IN INDONESIA AND MALAYSIA HAVE CREATED A CHOKING SMOKE. >>Anita: BOTH COUNTRIES ARE RAMPING UP EFFORTS TO CLEAR THE AIR BY MAKING IT RAIN. CHEMICALS ARE MIXED FOR CLOUD SEEDING IN HOPES THAT THE WATER DROPLETS WILL FORM AND RAIN BEGINS TO FALL. MANY FIRES ARE INTENTIONALLY SET IN INDONESIA TO CLEAR LAND FOR PALM OIL AND PULP AND PAPER PLANTATIONS. THE RESULTING HAZE HAS SPARKED SCHOOL AND AIRPORT CLOSURES AND LED TO TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CASES OF RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS. SMOG HAS BLANKETED SINGAPORE FOR A FIFTH CONSECUTIVE DAY, BRINGING AIR QUALITY LEVELS TO THE UNHEALTHY RANGE. IN BRUNI, THE AIR POLLUTION INDEX IS AT DANGEROUS LEVELS AND MORE THAN 30 ANIMALS ARE BEING TREATED FOR BREATHING PROBLEMS. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: BRETT IS BACK. BEAUTIFUL DAY TODAY.>>Brett: GLASS IT WAS THAT CASE. I FEEL LIKE WE WERE WAITING FOR THAT. KIND OF RAINY FOR THE START OF THE WEEK.>>Anita: A BIT OF A MIXED BAG.>>Mike: YEAH. GOING TO CHANGE IT ALL UP NOW. >>Brett: MUST BE A BALANCE IN ALL THINGS. THE YIN AND THE YANG. NOT JUST YET. BUT I DID WANT TO SHOW YOU A BEAUTIFUL-LOOKING SUNRISE THIS MORNING OVER THE NORTH SHORE MOUNTAINS. THE SUN IS RISING EVER LATER AS WE GET CLOSER AND CLOSER TO FALL. ALMOST 7:00 IN THE MORNING NOW. BUT WHEN IT DOES COME OUT, IT IS CERTAINLY BRILLIANT AND MUCH OF THE DAY, REALLY, WAS JUST THE STORY OF IMPROVING CONDITIONS. TEMPERATURES VERY CLOSE TO SEASONAL. NOT A LOT OF CLOUDS IN THE SKY AND EVEN RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK, THERE IS QUITE A LOT OF BLEW SKY AVAILABLE, WHICH IS GREAT. IN TERMS OF WHAT WE CAN EXPECT OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS, I DON’T THINK THE SUN IS GOING TO BE STICKING AROUND AS MUCH TOMORROW, BUT IT ALSO WON’T BE RAINING. SO IT’S A BIT OF A TRICKY FORECAST. BY THE TIME THAT WE GET INTO THE EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS TOMORROW, I WOULD EXPECT MORE CLOUDS TO START BUILDING IN THAN SUNSHINE BUT I WANT TO MENTION THE 6, 7 P.M. HOUR, THERE IS THE SLIGHTEST RISK FOR A SHOWER ACROSS THE REGION HERE. IT’S NOT A LOT, IF ANYTHING. THIS MIGHT JUST EQUATE TO MORE HEAVY CLOUD COVER BY CONTRAST. BUT WE’RE NOT LOOKING AT ANY SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATION OF RAIN AT THIS POINT IN TIME. THOUGH WHEN WE GET TO FRIDAY TO END OFF THE WEEK, WE’RE LOOKING AT CONDITIONS THAT ARE GOING TO BE SIMILAR TO WHAT WE EXPERIENCED TODAY. A NICE MIXTURE OF SUN AND CLOUDS AND THAT. ALREADY LOOKING AHEAD TO THE WEEKEND, INTO THE MIDWEEK MINDSET, MAYBE WANTING TO KNOW HOW THINGS WILL GO INTO THE FUTURE. THERE IS A FAIRLY STRONG PACIFIC SYSTEM RIGHT NOW THAT IS BREWING UP IN THE GULF OF ALASKA, THROUGHOUT LATE FRIDAY AND INTO SATURDAY. THIS IS GOING TO BE BRINGING FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT RAIN ALL THE WAY DOWN FROM HAIDA GWAII TO THE NORTH AND CENTRAL COAST AND THEN OVER TO VANCOUVER ISLAND. SO IF YOU ARE MAKING ANY PLANS TO GO OUT TO THE ISLAND THIS WEEKEND, DO KEEP THAT IN MIND. HOWEVER, CLOSER TO THE LOWER MAINLAND AND INTO THE VALLEY, THIS RAIN SHOULD LIKELY HOLD OFF UNTIL LATE SATURDAY NIGHT. THE HEAVIEST RAIN EXPECTED THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD AND THEN INTO SUNDAY. BY THE TIME WE GET INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS, THIS SHOULD START TO BE A CLEARING TREND. TEMPERATURES FOR THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE AS WELL GOING TO BE VERY CLOSE TO SEASONAL NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE ACROSS THE SOUTH COAST. NOW, WHAT DOES THAT TRANSLATE TO FOR THE FIVE-DAY FORECAST? WELL, TOMORROW, AS I MENTIONED, A BIT MORE CLOUD THAN SUN, BUT TEMPERATURES CLOSE TO SEASONAL AT ABOUT 18°. FRIDAY VERY SIMILARLY, WE’RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT A MIX OF SUN AND CLOUD WITH 18 AND THEN SATURDAY MUCH OF THE DAY IS GOING TO BE NICE. BUT IF THERE WAS A DAY TO PREPARE FOR A FEW SHOWERS, WELL, THAT’S SUNDAY AND THEN FOR THE FIRST DAY OF FALL ON MONDAY, MORE SHOWERS TO RING IT IN.>>Mike: FALL.>>Brett: 12:50 IN THE MORNING.>>Mike: FALL STARTED, LIKE, THREE WEEKS AGO.

SHE JUST WANTED TO SEE IF SHE COULD DO IT. SHE TRAVELLED LIGHT, DRINKING WATER FROM STREAMS, CARRYING A PUFFY JACKET, GLOVES, A CELLPHONE, AND 2 POUNDS OF BOILED POTATOES. TO EAT AS SHE RAN. IT WAS SMOOTH SAILING AT FIRST.>>SO THE FIRST 45 KILOMETRES, IT WAS — THIS UP AND MUSHY TUNDRA. FAIRLY FLAT. SLIGHTLY UPHILL AND THERE IS PARTS ON THE RIVER BEND. EASIER TO RUN AND SOME PART ARE HUMMOCKS, A BIT HARDER. >>Reporter: THE NEXT 20 KILOMETRES WERE HARD. JACCARD WAS RUNNING UP AND DOWN THROUGH ROCKY MORAINES. HOUR 14 WAS THE TOUGHEST. >>I HADN’T SLEEP FOR A WHILE. I WAS A BIT TIRED MENTALLY. BUT MY ANKLE HURT. THEY WERE SWOLLEN AND EVERY STEP WAS PRETTY PAINFUL. PHYSICALLY THAT WAS THE HARDEST. MUSCLES WERE STILL FINE BUT THE ANKLES WERE HURTING ON PRETTY MUCH EVERY STEP.>>Reporter: JACCARD SAYS SHE IS NOT A RUNNER. TO TRAIN, SHE HIKED THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER INCLUDING LEADING THIS EXPEDITION FOR NUNAVUT YOUTH LEAGUE, WITH NINE CHILDREN FOR TWO WEEKS. JACCARD SAID SHE REMINISCED ABOUT THIS TRIP AS SHE RAN OVER THE SAME TERRAIN. >>IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE OF RESILIENCE AND TRYING TO SEE HOW FAR THE MIND CAN GO AND THE BODY CAN GO. >>Reporter: THIS IS A RENOWNED NUNAVUT EXPLORER WHO CONFIRMS THAT JACCARD IS THE FIRST WOMAN TO RUN THE PASS IN UNDER 24 HOURS. BUT JACCARD SAYS THAT DOESN’T MEAN SHE’LL BE DOING ANY MORE EXTREME RUNS. BUT SHE DOES SAY THAT NOW SHE IS NOT AFRAID TO TRY ANY PROJECT THAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE. CBC NEWS, IQALUIT. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: THEY ARE NEW RULES THAT ARE MEANT TO PROTECT THE CANADIAN AIR TRAVELLER, BUT THERE ARE, OF COURSE, CONCERNS THAT THE RULES DON’T HAVE AS MUCH TEETH AS THEY SHOULD. AFTER THE BREAK, WE’LL MEET WITH ONE COUPLE WHO FOUGHT AND WON. [♪♪♪] [♪♪♪]>>Mike: THE COMPLAINTS OVER CANADA’S NEW AIRLINE PASSENGER RIGHTS ARE PILING UP. THE AIRLINES SAY THEY ARE COMMITTED TO FOLLOWING THE NEW RULES. >>Anita: TRAVELS WHO HAVE BEEN BUMPED FROM THEIR FLIGHTS SAY THEY HAVE HAD TO FIGHT WITH AIRLINES TO GET THEM TO PAY THE NEW PENALTIES. JACK HANSEN HAS THE STORY OF — JACQUELINE HANSEN HAS THE SON OF ONE COUPLE WHO FOUGHT AND WON. >>Reporter: A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME HONEYMOON TO ITALY CUT SHORT WHEN CHELSEA WILLIAMSON AND HER HUSBAND WERE BUMPED FROM THEIR FLIGHT. >>I WAS A BIT SHOCKED THAT WE DIDN’T FIND OUT ABOUT IT UNTIL WE WERE ACTUALLY TRYING TO BOARD THE AIRCRAFT. >>Reporter: AT THE GATE, ETHEY WERE TOLD WESTJET HAD SWITCHED TO A SMALLER AIRCRAFT. THEY WERE PUT ON A LATER FLIGHT AND MISSED FIVE HOURS OF SIGHT SEEING. WILLIAMSON COMPLAINED TO WESTJET, EXPECTING IT TO BE COVERED BY CANADA’S NEW AIRLINE PASSENGER RIGHTS.>>DOESN’T QUALIFY FOR DENIED BOARDING UNDER THE NEW REGULATIONS. >>Reporter: WESTJET SAID IT DIDN’T MEET THE BAR. INSTEAD IT OFFERED CREDITS OF $125 EACH. BUT ACCORDING TO THE NEW RULES, PASSENGERS WHO ARE DENIED BOARDING AND DELAYED LESS THAN SIX HOURS ARE ENTITLED TO $900.>>MAYBE THEY WERE HOPING THAT I WASN’T AS INFORMED AS I WAS AND THEY COULD JUST SKATE BY BY KIND OF OFFERING A WHOOPS, SORRY.>>Reporter: WILLIAMSON COMPLAINED TO THE CANADIAN TRANSPORTATION AGENCY. SINCE THE NEW RULES CAME INTO EFFECT IN MID JULY, THE CTA SAYS IT’S RECEIVED 147 COMPLAINTS. 67 INVOLVES AIR CANADA, 24 AGAINST WESTJET, AND 27 AGAINST OTHER AIRLINES.>>EXPECT THERE WILL BE THOUSANDS MORE COMPLAINTS PER YEAR, AND THAT’S A GOOD THING. >>Reporter: THERE ARE MORE RULES COMING IN DECEMBER THAT COVER DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS. ALL THE MAJOR CANADIAN AIRLINES SAY THEY INTEND TO FULLY COMPLY.>>WE’LL HAVE A TRANSITIONAL PERIOD WHEN — WHEN THESE RULES ARE TESTED, IF YOU WILL, AND HOPEFULLY THEY’LL BE SETTLED DOWN FAIRLY QUICKLY. >>Reporter: IN WILLIAMSON’S CASE, WESTJET SAID FOLLOWING AN INTERNAL INVESTIGATION WE RECOGNIZE THAT WE FAILED TO MEET OUR OBLIGATIONS TO THESE GUESTS. COMPLAINING PAID OFF. WESTJET SENT THE COUPLE $900 EACH. NOW THE TRANSPORTATION AGENCY IS INVESTIGATING WHETHER WESTJET’S POLICIES ON FLIGHT CHANGES COMPLY WITH THE NEW RULES.

[♪♪♪]>>Anita: SAUDI ARABIA HAS LAID OUT EVIDENCE TO BOLSTER ITS CLAIM THAT IRAN WAS BEHIND LAST WEEKEND’S ATTACK ON SAUDI OIL FIELDS. >>Mike: AS STEVEN D’SOUZA REPORTS, THE U.S. SAID IT WOULD TIGHTEN SANCTIONS ON IRAN BUT REMAINED VAGUE ABOUT OTHER RETALIATION. >>Reporter: STANDING BEFORE THE COURT OF WORLD OPINION, THE SAUDI ARABIAN MILITARY LAID OUT EVIDENCE ACCUSING IRAN OF SPONSORING THE WEEKEND ATTACK ON ITS OIL FIELDS. FRAGMENTS OF THE 18 DRONES IT SAYS WERE USED. PIECES OF THREE CRUISE MISSILES THEY SAY FELL SHORT OF THEIR TARGETS.>>IT WAS AN INSULT TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO DISRUPT THE GLOBAL ECONOMY AND THE ENERGY INDUSTRY. >>Reporter: HUTHI REBELS BASED IN YEMEN CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE EBBING TA. USING FOOTAGE, THE SAUDIS SAY THE ATTACK CAME FROM THE NORTH, FROM IRAN O IRAQ. NOT YEMEN IN THE SOUTH.>>IRAN CONTINUED AGGRESSION, THE SPONSORSHIP OF TERRORIST GROUP, AND INTERFERENCE IN MILITARY COMMERCE REPRESENT A COMMON THREAT TO US ALL. >>Reporter: BUT THE SAUDIS STOPPED SHORT OF THREATENING A MILITARY RESPONSE. THIS AS U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE, MIKE POMPEO, IN THE REGION TO MEET SAUDI OFFICIALS, CALLED OUT IRAN’S ACTIONS. TELLING REPORTERS OFF CAMERA THAT IRAN’S ACTIONS WERE AN ACT OF WAR. BUT POMPEO’S TOUGH STANCE WASN’T BACKED UP BY THE PRESIDENT TODAY. AFTER TWEETING OVER THE WEEKEND THAT THE U.S. WAS LOCKED AND LOADED, DONALD TRUMP WAS NON-COMMITTAL TODAY. >>President Donald Trump: MANY OPTIONS. AND THERE IS THE ULTIMATE OPTION AND THERE ARE OPTIONS A LOT LESS THAN THAT. AND WE’LL SEE. WE’RE IN A VERY POWERFUL POSITION. >>Reporter: THAT ULTIMATE OPTION WOULD BE WAR WITH IRAN. SOME REPUBLICANS ARE CALLING FOR AT LEAST A MILITARY STRIKE. TRUMP, THOUGH, QUESTIONED PREVIOUS AMERICAN INTERVENTIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST. >>President Donald Trump: HOW DID GOING INTO IRAQ WORK OUT? SO WE HAVE A DISAGREEMENT ON THAT, AND THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME TO DO SOME DASTARDLY THINGS. >>Reporter: THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS HERE NEXT WEEK AND SEEN AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE U.S. AND IRAN TO MEET, BUT SO FAR NEITHER SIDE HAS COMMITTED TO ANY TALKS. STEVEN D’SOUZA, CBC NEWS, NEW YORK.>>Anita: THE OFFICIAL RESULTS FROM ISRAEL’S GENERAL ELECTION ARE STILL TOO CLOSE TO CALL, BUT UNOFFICIAL RESULTS FROM THE VOTE YESTERDAY INDICATE PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU AND FORMER MILITARY CHIEF BENNIE GANTZ ARE NECK AND NECK. 90% OF THE VOTES ARE COUNTED. NETANYAHU’S PARTY HAS ONE LESS SEAT THAN GANTZ’S.>>THE RESULTS ARE WHAT THEY CALL A TIE AND WHEN YOU HAVE A TIE, IT MEANS THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF BARGAINING BACK AND FORTH. THAT SHOULD BE VERY INTERESTING.>>Mike: A FINAL RESULT MIGHT NOT BE ANNOUNCED FOR DAYS, BUT THE PARTY THAT COMES OUT AHEAD WILL STILL NEED TO FORGE ALLIANCES WITH SMALLER PARTIES TO FORM GOVERNMENT. NETANYAHU IS ALSO DEALING WITH THE FACT THAT COURT CASES AGAINST HIM ARE SCHEDULED TO START IN TWO WEEKS. HE IS FACING CORRUPTION CHARGES. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: THE MAN BEHIND BREXIT REFERENDUM IS BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT. FORMER BRITISH PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON’S NEW MEMOIR HITS SHELVES TOMORROW. >>Mike: AS THE CBC’S CAMERON McINTOSH REPORTS, IT’S ALREADY CAUSING A STIR. >>Reporter: JUST OUTSIDE OF CENTRAL LONDON, PETER BROOK HAS SET UP AN OASIS. A GOOD BOOK, REFRESHING DRINK. DON’T MENTION THE B WORD. >>PEOPLE ARE ARGUING EVERY SINGLE DAY AROUND THE SUBJECT OF BREXIT.>>Reporter: YOU WON’T FIND FORMER PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON’S NEW BOOK HERE. >>OUR PERSONAL VIEW IS THAT WE STAY FAIRLY APOLITICAL. AS A RESULT OF THAT, WE WON’T BE STOCKING THE BOOK, ALTHOUGH IT’S AVAILABLE TO CUSTOMERS WHO WANT TO PREORDER IT. >>Reporter: IT’S NOT THE ONLY BOOKSTORE TAKING THAT POSITION. CAMERON’S BIOGRAPHY COMES THREE YEARS AFTER LOSING THE REFERENDUM ON BREXIT AND RESIGNING. THE MAN ACCUSED OF BREAKING BRITAIN ISN’T QUITE APOLOGIZING.>>AM I SORRY ABOUT THE STATE THE COUNTRY HAS GOTTEN TO? YES. IT WAS MY REFERENDUM, MY CAMPAIGN, MY DECISION TO TRY AND RENEGOTIATE. AND I ACCEPT ALL OF THOSE THINGS. >>Reporter: IT’S CRITICISM OF ONE-TIME ALLY NOW PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON THAT IS REALLY GETTING ATTENTION. >>HE THOUGHT THAT THE BREXIT VOTE WOULD BE LOST, BUT HE DIDN’T WANT TO GIVE UP THE CHANCE OF BEING ON THE ROMANTIC PATRIOTIC, NATIONALISTIC SIDE OF BREXIT. >>Reporter: PROVOCATIVE TIMING AS BRITAIN IS ON EDGE. >>BECAUSE IT GOES RIGHT BACK TO WHAT SOME PEOPLE CONSIDER WERE ILLEGITIMATE TACTICS USED BY THE “LEAVE” CAMPAIGN WHOSE HEAD, OF COURSE, WAS BORIS JOHNSON. >>Reporter: PINKER VOTED “LEAVE.” CAMERON’S RELEVANCE IS DEBATABLE. >>I DON’T WANT TO HEAR EXCUSES.>>CERTAINLY HAVE VOTED FOR BREXIT BUT IT WOULD BE NICE TO GET ANOTHER ANGLE.>>Reporter: UNLIKE MARGARET ATWOOD’S BEST SELLER, CAMERON’S BOOK ISN’T GETTING A LOT OF NATIONAL PROMOTION. >>HAVE YOU HAD ANYONE ASKING FOR THE BOOK?>>AT THIS STAGE, NO. >>Reporter: UNLIKELY TO BE THE FINAL WORD IN A LEGACY STILL BEING WRITTEN. CAMERON McINTOSH, CBC NEWS, LONDON.>>Mike: IT’S AN INNOVATIVE IDEA. ONE THAT PROMISES TO CLEAN THE AIR AROUND US. WE’LL TAKE YOU INSIDE A UNIQUE FACILITY THAT CAPTURES CARBON NEXT. [♪ [♪♪♪]>>Anita: SWEDISH TEENAGER GRETA THUNBERG APPEARED BEFORE A U.S. CONGRESSIONAL HEARING TODAY. THE CLIMATE ACTIVIST DELIVERING A SHORT MESSAGE.>>I AM SUBMITTING THIS REPORT AS MY TESTIMONY BECAUSE I DON’T WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO ME. I WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS.>>Anita: THE REPORT CALLS FOR A DRAMATIC CHANGE TO PREVENT TEMPERATURES FROM RISING 1.5° CELSIUS BY 2030. THUNBERG WAS ONE OF FOUR YOUNG STUDENTS INVITED TO SPEAK. SHE AND OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE WORLDWIDE ARE LEADING MASSIVE COORDINATED STRIKES FROM SCHOOLS WITH DATES THIS FRIDAY AND NEXT. THE GOAL IS TO RAISE AWARENESS OF CLIMATE CHANGE.>>Mike: ONE OF THE TECHNOLOGIES THAT COULD PLAY A PART IN FIGHTING THAT CHANGE IS BEING PUT THROUGH ITS PACES RIGHT HERE IN THE LOWER MAINLAND.>>Anita: DIRECT AIR CAPTURE IS A PROCESS THAT PROMISES TO STRIP CO2 OUT OF THE ATMOSPHERE AND CARBON ENGINEERING HOPES ITS EXPANDING SQUAMISH FACILITY WILL PROVE THAT THE TECH CAN WORK IN THE REAL WORLD. WE SENT A CAMERA TO HAVE A LOOK.>>YEAH, SO THIS IS OUR DIRECT CAPTURE FACILITY HERE IN SQUAMISH, BRITISH COLUMBIA. INSIDE THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT HERE IS A LARGE FAN. IT SAT ON THE TOP. THAT FAN IS GOING TO PULL THE AIR THROUGH AND THEN THROUGH A FILTER. AS THE AIR PASSES THROUGH, 8 O% OF THE CARBON DIOXIDE FROM THE AIR IS PULLED OUT. NEXT THING WE DO IS WE PUT IT INSIDE A PELLET REACTOR. THIS IS WHAT THE — THE PELLET REACTOR PRODUCES. SMALL PELLETS. 40% CO2. THEY SPLIT AND THEY PRODUCE CO2 AND OXYGEN. WE CAPTURE THE CO2. WE USE THE OXYGEN TO HELP US DRIVE THE TEMPERATURE INSIDE HERE. AS WE MAKE THE CO2 MORE AND MORE CONCENTRATED FROM THE AIR, IN REVERSE, WE REMAKE THE CHEMICALS THAT ARE PART OF THE PROCESS. >>YOU’LL HAVE A CONTINUOUS CYCLE LIKE THIS, WHICH MEANS THAT THE PLANT HAS NO CONSUMABLES. NO CHEMICAL CONSUMABLES: WHEN YOU ADD THAT PROCESS ON TOP OF EQUIPMENT READILY AVAILABLE AND USED AT SCALE IN INDUSTRY TODAY, WE BELIEVE WE HAVE A SOLUTION THAT CAN BE DEPLOYED AT GREAT SCALE. NEXT STEP WILL BE A ONE MEGA-TONNE FACILITY, WHICH WILL BE IN TEXAS. THAT’S THE TYPE OF SCALE WHERE YOU START TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. THAT’S THE WORK OF ABOUT 40 MILLION TREES. IN THAT ONE PLANT. IT’S A WAY IN WHICH YOU HAVE AN ADDITIONAL TOOL THAT CONSTANTLY PULLING CO2 OUT OF THE ATMOSPHERE WHILE WE TAKE OUR TIME TO STOP EMITTING HERE ON THE PLANET. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: BACK TO OUR TOP STORY NOW TONIGHT. A PHOTO TAKEN IN 2001 DROPPED LIKE A BOMBSHELL ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL TODAY.>>Mike: IT’S A PICTURE OF JUSTIN TRUDEAU IN BROWNFACE. >>Anita: JUSTIN TRUDEAU IS APOLOGIZING TONIGHT WITH THE OPPOSITION ON THE ATTACK, CALLING OUT THE LIBERAL LEADER AS A HYPOCREDIT. ASKED IF HE WOULD CONSIDER RESIGNING, TRUDEAU SAYS “NO.” HE HAS ALSO ADMITTED TO APPEARING IN BROWNFACE OR BLACKFACE, PAINTING HIS FACE A COLOUR, IN A HIGH SCHOOL DRAMA PRODUCTION.>>Mike: WE HEARD FROM JAGMEET SINGH AND ANDREW SCHEER EARLIER TONIGHT. NOW JUST MOMENTS AGO, ACTUALLY, WE’RE GOING TO HERE FROM SCHEER RIGHT NOW AND WHAT HE IS SAYING ABOUT HIM.>>LIKE ALL CANADIANS, I WAS EXTREMELY SHOCKED AND DISAPPOINTED WHEN I LEARNED OF JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S ACTIONS THIS EVENING. WEARING BROWNFACE IS AN ACT OF OPEN MOCKERY AND RACISM. IT WAS JUST AS RACIST IN 2001 AS IT IS IN 2019. AND WHAT CANADIANS SAW THIS EVENING IS SOMEONE WITH A COMPLETE LACK OF JUDGMENT AND INTEGRITY AND SOMEONE WHO IS NOT FIT TO GOVERN THIS COUNTRY.>>Anita: WE HAVE ALSO HEARD FROM GREEN PARTY LEADER ELIZABETH MAY. SHE HAS TWEETED OUT THAT SHE IS DEEPLY SHOCKED BY THE PHOTO AND WE ALSO HIT THE STREETS TODAY TO GET REACTION FROM VANCOUVERITES ON THE PICTURE. HERE’S WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY.>>IT DOESN’T MATTER. I THINK THERE SHOULD BE AWARENESS OF, YOU KNOW, THAT IT’S — YOU KNOW, IT’S HURTFUL TO SOME PEOPLE. SO NOT SURE IF THE PRIME MINISTER WAS DOING IT INTENTIONALLY OR NOT TO BE RACIST. BUT I THINK, YEAH, HE SHOULD DEFINITELY ANSWER FOR SOME OF THAT.>>I THINK IT’S GOOD THAT HE IS SAYING ABOUT IT AND ADDRESSING IT. I WOULD HAVE TO KIND OF LOOK INTO WHAT HE ACTUALLY SAID TO SEE, LIKE, MY OPINIONS ON IT.>>WE DON’T HAVE A PASS. YEAH. YEAH, I HAVE IT. YOU HAVE IT. HE HAD IT. IT’S A DIFFERENT TIME. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS?>>Mike: AND THAT PHOTO THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT WAS TAKEN IN 2001 AT A PARTY HERE IN VANCOUVER. MORE ON THAT STORY AT “THE NATIONAL” AND DAN IS HERE AT 11 AS WELL. >>Anita: HAVE A WONDERFUL NIGHT. [♪♪♪] [♪♪♪]
