Here & Now Wednesday July 17, 2019
You. You. This. Is CBC. Here and now. Tonight. On here and now seven, people, are now feared dead in this week's plane crash in Labradors interior, the, search and rescue mission has turned into a recovery mission that's, just, ahead and, a, whale, in danger. Good. No no no no. My. Stress emotes we backed off and if I roll in, an. Attempt. To rescue a whale caught in fishing gear off, the coast of st. John's thwarted, by, thick fog now, rescuers. Are wondering, where the whale will, turn up next. Good. Evening i'm carolyn, Stokes the RCMP, says two, of the seven people aboard, a float plane that, crashed in northern Labrador on, Monday are from this province, three, people have been confirmed dead and, four remain, missing, here, announced Jacob Barker is following this story so Jacob what have we learned today. Well. Carolyn, we do know that two of the people on board that plane were from this province but their identities have not been released the, pilot, has been named he's 61, year old Jill Moran of Quebec and the four other people on board were Americans. It. Began as a search by the joint Rescue Coordination Center. But has now turned into a recovery operation. The RCMP, underwater, recovery team is on the ground in Labrador, right now and are, preparing. To gear up all their, their personnel, and their resources and their gear to get into this remote site to search the, owner of air saguenay believes the four people still missing will be found once the plane is brought up the missing person we expecting. They are in, different ledge of day their word the plane under what, the water so unfortunately. The the chance to find the survivor, are very low the, plane was on its way from Three, Rivers lodged, near the northern border, of Quebec, to, a remote, region in, Labrador, when. The plane was late and calls went unanswered Monday. Evening a search began, searchers. Found the single-engine, aircraft early, yesterday so, Mergent water about, two kilometers, offshore air. Saguenay has seen two deadly crashes involving. Two Havilland beavers one, in 2010, killed four people and another, in 2015. Killed seven, but Tremblay says the plane was reliable. It's, a safe plane because the, beaver operates, since. 50s. And, still. In operation and, it's still a good aircraft, in the to action and the TSB. Report. We. Can say that it, was human error the, fact that they have an accident it's not the beaver himself Transport. Canada recommends. That floatplane operators, make personal, floatation, devices mandatory. And that, planes have pop-out windows to make it easier, to get out Tremblay, says the passengers, weren't, wearing floatation, devices and that, the plane didn't, have pop-out, windows there was no modification. For, the the. Window and, no. We don't have any modification. On that were beaver. Without. Knowing, the cause of this accident it's hard to say if either of those measures, would, have helped in this case the, Transportation. Safety Board says, it will travel to the location of the track to. The of the crash to conduct its investigation. Once the plane is out of the water reporting. Live for here now and happy valley-goose Bay, I'm Jacob Barker a big. Development. For Signal Hill tonight a day, after, going up the controversial, fence, along part of Signal Hill is coming, down, after, plenty.
Of Public, outrage, Parks, Canada reversed. Its decision to. Keep the fence here, in aus Meg Roberts reports. Faker's, Christine, Cole and Susan, Hart climbed Signal, Hill for a coffee and the, view but, what they saw felt a little nearsighted. An 8-foot, fence stands. Beside the interpretation. Center blocking, the scenic view and as, many have noticed it also blocks people from seeing the signal he'll tattoo, a military. Reenactment. For free we think it should go it's. Blocking the most beautiful, view in the city I know you can climb higher we did, where we're hikers, but not everyone's, a hiker we both hope it's, taken down. Yes is taken down should be first, at Harbourfront now the hill. But. There's a price tag on both putting up the cedar fence and taking. It down so, how much money would it have cost to put up this fence I asked, the experts hickeys. Timber, Mart says they charge a minimum of two hundred dollars a foot and that is for the labor and material, so this fence here is about, a hundred and seventy feet, long or 52, meters, that, totals, for both. $34,000. If, you think that's worth it no, of course not nice, wood though even, the politicians, are calling it an eyesore, Parks, Canada cited, safety, as the reason for putting up the fence to, prevent close call accidents, as traffic slows to see the view but, MP Mick Whelan says even the federal Environment, Minister, is not, a fan, you look at the fence and you're just some fence, like. I'm not even sure what you say about. It it just doesn't keep with any of the character here and it's entirely unnecessary Whelan. Also criticized, Parks Canada for the lack of public, consultation. Although. A little too late he says the message was received loud. And clear Mike Roberts CBC News st., John's. So. When a government statement, that came out just a, few minutes ago Parks, Canada says. The cedar fence will come down this weekend.
It'll Be replaced, with a temporary, structure, during performances. Of the Signal Hill tattoo, Parks. Canada says, its attempt, to make the area more secure. During the busy performances. Quote. Clearly. Missed, the mark. Well. Jeremy. Eaton is on the move again, today. This time in conception, base south so, Jeremy, what's happening, out that, way tonight. Well. We're just standing, here near. Long Pond in, CBS, and it's a beautiful, just like less than another beautiful evening, now, there are a lot of people a lot of members of the Canadian Armed Forces are, in town and they're doing some diving which, ties in Bell Island the, Second World War and, some German u-boats, so. We're gonna tell you all about that, coming, up later. Thanks. Jeremy the. Hibernia, management. And development company says, it's monitoring, an oil sheen, spotted, this morning the company says it's a mixture of oil and water which, leaked from a storage cell, the, sheen is estimated, to be about 900 meters, by 20 meters crews. Are using equipment, to soak up as much oil as possible and, mechanically, dispersing. The rest the, cause of the leak is not yet known. The. Whale rescue, team had no luck coming, to the aid of a distressed whale this morning in Saint John's the, call came in about a humpback towing, fishing, gear near the Narrows, but responders, couldn't, find it here, now sees hair reports. Something. In the water didn't, look right not, to the crew of the Cape Chelsea, which, was returning, to st. John's with a load of crab they, investigated. Brian, Taylor shot this video NOAA, sebelum floating around in the middle area, so. We've seen this big old barge, on a wire related what's. Going on Erie, so, we steamed up to it and this was a whale but I will want a rope wrapped around his fins a Brenna's. Is, back ferry. It's, blue yeah, it's blue rope how, big was it they will know he's. 25. 25. 30, feet line for sure he's huge Taylor. Says they called the Coast Guard and followed, the whale toward, cape speare, until. They lost sight of it we did my stress emotes we backed off and then if I roll in he's. Gone great, we, lost him right we stayed. Away from him we didn't wanna stress Luke too much hey yeah but. Yeah it was pretty. Interesting, morning that's for sure the, nonprofit rescue, group whale, release, and strandings, got the call Wayne, label says they searched for hours with the Coast Guard and the fishing boat and found everything except. The whale there, was a bunch. Of fin whales I threw a cow and calf in well there was cow and calf humpbacks, there was other humpbacks, there was lords, of birds there was weight beet Gulf and following. Us around and, jumping out of the water and it was beautiful, cam they're. Just. You know some especially we hoped for anyway led, will says it's anyone's, guess what type of gear it was and. He says losing sight of a whale is easy if it isn't caught up in an anchor so, very, common. Especially, the ones that are towing gear because the condition, is big and and, and.
They. Can go anywhere and usually. Sometimes. We're lucky enough to catch up with them lead well says there are two things you should never, do if you see a whale that's in trouble don't, try to untangle any, ropes and whatever. You do never get. In the water with the whale seized, hair CBC News the, Narrows, and. There. Are more whales struggling. To survive a, rescue team has partially. Freed two North Atlantic, right whales three, of the endangered, whales are currently entangled. In fishing gear in the Gulf of st. Lawrence these. Images show yesterday's. Rescue, efforts to free a tagged whale that scientists, identified, as a five year old male it is the, second, attempt, to free the whale since last week DFO. Says crews were, once again able to cut some of the gear but the animal has not been completely, freed a second. Whale was spotted around five o'clock yesterday, afternoon. The rescue team was able to cut a rope from the whales mouth to its tail but it still wasn't enough to remove, the gear, efforts. To locate and free all three entangled, whales continued. Today and, we will resume when, weather permits. Now. To a much more positive, whales. Story, O'Brien's. Boat tours posted, this video, on, Facebook. Yesterday. Just look. At that. The. Company says passenger, barb, Fredricksen, shared the footage which was taken during a tour of witless. Bay some. Beautiful shots of whales breaching. Just. Fantastic. Thanks. For sending that in well. You might want to put your fork down for, this next one in Alberta, health, officials are encouraging people.

More, than, 1500, cases, of syphilis were reported, last year compared, to, 161. In, 2014. That's almost 10 times higher, Edmonton. And areas north of the city recorded, the biggest year to year increases. Cases. There are up more than 300%. And here. At home health officials did warn the public about rising syphilis, rates earlier this year but, rates here, are not as high as what, they're seeing in Alberta, Eastern.

Great, that they caught that on camera, everyone seems pretty excited, in that boat. Just. Gorgeous. You. Welcome. Back to hearing now time now to find out the weather forecast, but Ashley, is not with us tonight so an old friend, is stopping. By Ryan's. Not and good to see you how are you great, to see you I'm great how are you I'm, wonderful. How's Halifax. It's. It's, been a little warm I don't want to rub it in but it's been a little a little warm and I know I, know you folks, and, of course doing, Atlantic, tonight have been waiting, and waiting for the summer to break through taking. Forever, right. It was better today it was better today yeah and you know what we do some rain tonight and into tomorrow a Stoke see but as we move throughout the day really. Becoming summer-like, once, again, as we roll into the afternoon hours. Tomorrow and a pretty nice one shaping up for Friday and yeah as some summer-like, temps, for the weekend we'll talk about that a little bit later highs today, yeah no complaints, here for most of the, province, 27, happy valley-goose Bay it, did get to 20 and nain today for the very first time this, season 20, in st. John's for the first time in over a week thank. You very much it, took actually going off on vacation of course for that to happen once again so you can thank her for that there's, our cold front that's rolling, through as we, speak and that's gonna be bringing yes not only some rain but. Some cooler. Temps in behind certainly for Labrador we, will recover on the other side of that front though for, Newfoundland not, a huge, cooldown, for tomorrow which is some good news there let's time it out with your hour-by-hour there's, the rain tracking, through Labrador. Tonight a few thunderstorms not, under the question by. Late evening starting. To approach the west coast in the southwest, coast with some heavy downpours here, no question to both that maybe even some rumbles, of thunder with this line that's gonna be tracking up into, eastern parts of newfoundland by thursday morning st. john's looks like it's gonna be a pretty wet start across the, the, Avalon Peninsula and, clarin Ville Bonavista and the, Burin Peninsula in particular, mild. Start though and we will see things, starting to clear early morning along parts of the west coast into happy valley-goose Bay and, Cartwright. Will see some, breaks but a chance of some showers lingering, for most of the day happy, valley-goose Bay out towards the Cartwright region, note the clear out as we move certainly. By lunchtime for st. John's looks like the rain will be done we're talking about some sunshine into the afternoon chances. Some popup showers again, along the northern peninsula tomorrow afternoon and just kind of staying unsettled, here through southeastern, parts of Labrador, lab City though looking, pretty good as you'll see here in just a moment I think, we'll top out 18, 19 degrees could, certainly see some 20 degree temps for inland parts of the Avalon tomorrow winds are gonna go from, Southwest. To Northwest and, we'll see temps yeah, generally, speaking in the 18 to 20 degree range for most of the East more with those showers clearing and then some sunshine pretty.
Nice Day from, start to finish a little bit cooler, in, those onshore winds, from, the west and so places, like Porter. Bask Stephenville, corner Brooke gross warm likely, only topping, out in the 17, to, 18, degree range but work your way inland I think we will crack 20 in the Humber Valley Bay vert and, certainly into the Grand Falls Windsor, region that will likely be one of our hot spots tomorrow 21, to, 22, degrees, now for tomorrow along, the coast of Labrador those, northerly, winds that's going to make keep, temperatures, quite cool a single-digit. Highs for places like makovica, back to 11. Degrees and named as, I said quite unsettled from start to finish and happy valley-goose Bay late. Day maybe some evening showers from Ares Harbor and the Straits but it does look dry for most of the day Churchill, Falls the chance of showers but Labrador, City one. Of the nicest spots tomorrow at 20. Degrees, as I said soaks he looks like we'll hold that nice weather into Friday which looks pretty good and the, weekend, yeah some showers put some sunshine to we'll, talk about that coming up thanks. Ryan we'll talk to you in a bit sounds, good. What's. The story that goes back more than 75. Years during. The second world war Bell, Island played, such. A big role in the. War that it caught the attention of. German. U-boats. And those, ships left something, behind, Jeremy, is joining us now live near the hm CS, Shawinigan, Jeremy. What kind of relics, are still sitting. At the bottom of the ocean. Sorry. I'm laughing because we said the boat was here but there's obviously no boat here because. No. Boat. It's. Actually, it's, they're behind. On the other side of Belle Island and the the. Canadian Armed Forces their, dive teams are still working, to. Try to clear get some of the stuff off the bottom so that's why there's no boat but we do have a beautiful, beautiful shot of CBS there are a lot of boats there sailboats but they're not the ones we're talking about but, what we are talking about is what's underneath, the, water and I don't know a lot about it but Petty Officer Steve Giffen he does, know a lot about it thank you for taking the time to join us Steve thank you very much for having me so what, what are you and your crews doing here in CBS so right now there's, four wrecks from World War two that were sunk by a German u-boat and we're looking, for approximately, 50 rounds. That are on each of the ships. 50. Rounds and so. How hard is it or how far down do you guys have to go do your teams have to go down to try to find some of those so each wrecks at a different depth but it varies from 30 meters to 45 meters so it's fairly deep water how, long I got to know I'm not a diver I can swim a little bit but I can't dive down how long does it take somebody to get down that far for.
The 45 meters you'll take close to three minutes with our descent rates, so. Have you done that yet, I've been I did it 20 years ago it was a lot of fun I wish I was doing it now but I'm with you right now so. When. You go down there how hard is it to pick something up off that and, then to get it on the land and then what do you do with it walk us through that process D it's actually very interesting process we've been trained for we do a lot of training all around the world, it starts with actually identifying, what, is dangerous down there is it a projectile, or is it just a piece of metal once, we do identify that it's a projectile we move it into a net, once. We have enough we'll lift it to the surface and put them on HMCS Rinnegan sure, winning hm see Ashwin again we'll then come to the board here in Long Pond and transfer. To our UD team the EOD team then takes it to a safe location for, disposal, and. When you say what, is a OD mean and what does disposal. Mean that's a very good question, Odie's explosive, orange disposal, and when I say dispose of it we'll destroy it to make sure that it no longer poses a risk to anybody around. Locally. Here or do you have to send it off somewhere we send it approximately 40 minutes away to a safe location where, we'll be able to dispose of it without affecting, anybody, or injuring. Anybody now. Steve and I were talking as we were waiting to do this interview and you've done this around the world you're talking about doing it in the baltic sea and you said you've been down there 20 years 20. Years ago here, how, cool, is there can you sort of walk us through what it looks like when you're making the dive down and you're looking on like a shipwreck like you would see here behind Bell Island for, me personally it's the history when I go down on these wrecks I realize that people are onboard and unfortunately lost their lives and just it's humbling to see what damage has been done and that, it's. History and just brings you back to reality where, we all can't what's happened in the past and where we're at right now and. What and. How well. Maintained, are these wrecks, ship, I think it does look like a ship is too covered up what sort of things are you seeing when you're down there face. To face knives into it there's a couple wrecks that are still in really good shape there's a couple that were damaged really bad by the torpedo, but, it's actually surprising, in Canada has really cold water and the ships are actually maintaining their integrity, quite well, well. I appreciate it sadly there is no boat for us to look at and, there are no ordinances. For us to play with which is stupid because we wouldn't play with them anyways anyways anyways I appreciate, you taking the time for joining us thank you petty officer Steve Giffen and that's, it for me right now now we're we, got a tough job here because the sun's out and the waters out lots of boats we're gonna head over to the other side of the marina later and we're gonna talk to rick stanley from ocean's ocean. Quest adventurous, who, helps I guess start this about 20 years ago when he found an old German, torpedo so, reporting live for hear now I'm Jeremy eaten in Conception, Bay South. Summer. Has definitely, arrived here in gander with highs of 26. Degrees I look, for some tips on how to beat the heat that's, coming up on here now. You. Welcome. Back well. It seems that summer, weather, has, arrived, in, gander, at last, temperatures. Reached 26. Degrees in the town and that sent families, outside looking, for ways to beat, the heat here, in aus Garrett Barry is live for us tonight in sunny, gander so Garrett, how did you enjoy, the, warm weather. Well. You can certainly count me among those people who are looking to beat the heat Environment, Canada said the humidex rating, got to about 30 almost 30 today and yeah that's when I start, to melt but a lot of people around here and said this is the first real summary Dave at Gander had and I certainly didn't want to ruin that energy so instead of complaining I went. And took some tips of what, to do one a nice summer, day here in gander. We. Don't get a lot of days like this so when we. I. Don't. Know if I'll get wet but, it's. Fun to see. Definitely. We've. Had to cancel a lot, of practices, actually due to the rain. Like. That, when. Your three fingers are a long threads, and. Your, thumb long this one. You. Just got a better grip on the ball. Especially. When it's wet it's. Easier to throw and that's been a factor this year you're telling me yes, definitely.
It's. Pretty cool having, sister. Two sings and stuff everyone. Asked questions about. Going. Up was did you ever get sick of hearing, her practice or what. When. I'm in trying to play games and stuff and she'll, make me turn it down so she can hear her guitar better. Pretty. Slow before you came but now I think as, people, are coming in for the concert in the park here now we're, getting more and more sales, well we always get great sales for slush puppies specimens have it. So. We decided we want to do a little something extra to. Boost. Our revenue, so, we've. Opened. Up this canteen, this is a I, think the third year running now and so. We have clients, that work here at the the canteen. As well they love it down here does it get to talk to people and they really like that. So. Those were just some of the sights and sounds of a beautiful summer day here in gander and don't be in fear don't be afraid if you, haven't gotten out yet even right now as we speak it's still a nice, 25 degrees, here, in cobs, Pond Park and according. Environment Canada there's about two more nice days on the horizon just as soon as we get through some showers, tomorrow morning pouring, lye for here now in Gator I'm Gary Perry, well. There are fewer than 100. Days until the federal election and the candidate, list in this province is already, growing here, in aus Katie Breen has compiled, the names and you also spoke with retired. Political, scientist, Stephen Tomlin. So what's his take, on all of this so far well he's expecting, American, politics, to bleed into all this, he thinks the Trump effect could, take hold here during, the federal election, down, in the States he says the president, plays to his base here. Tomlin, expects leaders to play two provinces, and he says the tone could get pretty negative as parties try to mobilize support I think. In both Canada United States we're, seeing a lot of you. Know anger. But, we're also seeing a lot of us being stoked, by the parties, themselves they're, feeding that anger you know they're appealing to Alberta, they're appealing, to British Columbia parties.
Will Be probably picking and choosing I mean the Conservatives, will know if they don't have an, opportunity, to mobilize many votes because the electoral, system in certain regions they, may attack them they. May mobile, you know and play for it for their base and play for their audience, and that's not good for national unity and that's not that's not good for public policy I'll. Be interesting, to see a week get some extreme, views, coming through in this election for sure how. Is the candidate, list shaping. Up in this province well we've got the seven federal ridings. All occupied, by liberals and all of them have at least one, confirmed, candidate, all, the incumbents, are running again so each district, has a liberal option, in Avalon, Greg Malone of cod Co Fame is running, for the Green Party right. Now the Greens have the moat the second most confirmed, candidates, at four, there's a green candidate, in Bonavista Buuren Trinity as well, as a conservative, and liberal, in coast, of bays central, Notre Dame Scott Sims is officially, running again earlier, this year he was the only incumbent. Not confirmed, by the Liberals he, wanted to run but didn't, have enough money fund raised Labrador. Is the only riding, with just one confirmed, candidate, so far other, parties, have open nominations, or plan to do so soon in long-range mountains, on the west coast that district, has two candidates, so. Far you might have noticed no NDP, that's because there's only one new Democratic, candidate confirmed, so far Jack. Harris is running, for the NDP and st. John's East he's hoping to win his seat back from liberal Nick Whelan, nominations. Closed for the Conservatives, here in five days that nomination race is between former, NOAA CEO, Bob Cadogan, and Jody, wall the mayor of pooch Cove then, finally, st., John's South Mail pearl indigenous. Services Minister Seamus, O'Regan is looking to keep his seat there okay, so for, anyone who wasn't counting, it up on the fingers there how many candidates, is, that that's. 15, candidates, so far all four, major parties, if all four parties rather ran, a candidate, in every race there'd be 28, in total, I asked, Tomlin for his thoughts on the lead up to election day so far for. The most part we're, not seeing, much engagement, you. Know parties, for the most part are thinking, about brand they're thinking, was selling their personalities. Or their, leaders as, they always have in the past and. That's that's, for, the most part all we're probably going to get. So. He's not very optimistic we'll, see a deep, debate on the issues facing the nation but there's, still time we've got 96. Days until the election voting. Day is October 21st, all right Katie Breen thank you so much for breaking it all down for us no trouble. Those. Who are showcasing. Their gardens have put so much work, and effort into, it who, doesn't want to show off their. Beauty the, mystery, garden, tour takes place this weekend, rain or shine all will, be revealed when. These private, gardens in st. Johns and Mount Pearl go on display, details. After the break. You. Welcome. Back to hearing now well. There is nothing, better on a beautiful. Sunny day than, being out in the garden, and this particular garden, in the ghouls is part, of a very special event that's happening, this weekend, and joining, me now to talk more about that is kinship, with Mun Botanical, Gardens so Kim can you tell me a bit about this mystery, tour happening, this weekend, certainly this weekend we have 10 gardens, across, the Avalon that, are participating, where, visitors can, poke around people's, backyards.
Good Ideas, and enjoy a weekend, outside, in beautiful, gardens how does that work. So. You get your your mystery garden passport, you pick one of those up and inside are, the 10 properties are revealed with a brief, description and a map of course so. You can drive around and meet and greet some of the homeowners, and our volunteers. So, Jamie why did you want to take part in this mystery garden tour Ted let people walk through your garden interesting. Question well for a couple of reasons one, being, that you can walk through the garden with all these other people that are gardeners, and have many conversations and, the. Other, was to put a little bit of pressure on myself to get the garden done so I can enjoy the rest of the summer how, much work goes into this, garden, it's, a little bit right now we're still constructing, so it's probably, it could be up to 40 hours but normally probably 15, 20 hours a week wow, that's a lot of time you must really love it absolutely I find it very therapeutic, so, the people who take part in this tour what, is it they get out of it why do they want to go around and poke through other people's backyards. Well. I think I think for those who want to poke around they want to get some ideas for their own gardens, and of course those. Who are showcasing. Their gardens have put so much work and effort into, it who doesn't want to show off their. Beauty how. Many different, plants, do, you have here would you guess oh that's, a great question, maybe, about. 1200. Different varieties of things what. Kinds of things do. You think people can learn when, they they, go on this tour we. Always have such an eclectic group of gardens it's always amazing to see some really big wide spanning, guard and some small tight ones and urban settings and it's. Kind of amazing what people actually can grow and even when our horticulturists, go around there Oh, hmm. I didn't know you could do that and get some clippings and the like and, how many people do you think will, walk, through your, garden uh this weekend I'm, guessing. Probably somewhere around 350. Maybe that's. A lot, of people and, you don't mind them just trouncing, around. What. Has the growing season been like this year well has certainly, got off to a late start we, were almost. Embarrassed, open our doors at the Botanical, Garden on May 1st but we did and. It, was slow going but, now, everything. Is springing, to life the, rhododendrons, are out in full bloom it's gorgeous. Gorgeous, and so we've kind of caught up I love, rhododendron, season I know, I know and a few as you're out and about doing the mystery garden to where you can pop by the garden too because the rhododendrons, and we have over 250, are spectacular right. Now what, kind of inspiration do you think people will be able to get when they're looking, around people's, gardens I, think. People sort of love the little pockets, about door rooms that are in people's gardens and they can look at some of the plant material and talk with the homeowners, I know visitors, always really enjoy talking to the homeowners and they kind of can get inspiration by their passion, and get. Some tips on where they've got their plants and how. They manage to propagate, and where, plants have been happy in the gardens and where they haven't been and how they move things around so. Other people get, to enjoy the fruits other. People's labor that's, correct. Thank. You so much Kim really appreciate, it Thanks. So. We're. At the sunset, key marina, in a beautiful, night here in Conception, Bay South now earlier we heard from the Canadian Armed Forces and, Petty Officer Steve Giffen talking about the role that they are taking trying to remove these ordinances from the bottom of the ocean but there's a local connection to this other than the fact that they're in the waters off of Bell Island and that's this man right here Rick Stanley from Ocean Quest adventures. Rick. Can you tell me what did you find in the year 2000. Oh we were up there of course just we've got, lots of ammunition and so on and so forth but I had a friend here from Germany, his. Name was Engel Vollmer and we, were diving around and did we went looking, in a debris field of the rose castle about 160. Feet deep and we. Came across a torpedo, and, we, couldn't believe it especially. That it was found by my, buddy Ingo from Germany, you know I said okay what's this now is he some kind of spy or something. You. Know. Like who do you call what do you do well. Of course we, notified. The provincial, archaeology, office and I don't, know what we found and you, know we said that. It would be there, was a locking, ring there was no warhead, on it there was a locking ring just lying right in front of it and I said what a cool thing to have in the Bell on a museum, so I contact, the provincial archaeology office and, of course some of the news got, ahold of it and next thing you know that the, fleet diving, unit is underway to blow up a torpedo and I said.
To. The shipwreck, in the damage the shipwreck so, basically. They. Showed, him some video and so on and they they, seen, that there, was no warhead there so but, the body of the torpedo, the propeller you can see the banks. Of batteries in, the torpedo, and everything it was amazing, and it was a wolffish there to them for a bonus so, fast. Forward 19, years you've. Been involved in, this project this recovery effort what has Ocean Quest adventures role been and what is your role been in all this Rick well mm. Of course you, know that was the first bit but then last year they contacted, me and said Rick you know we know you're, probably one of these, wrecks more than anybody and would, you like to, help us out too. You, know locate. The and. Pinpoint, so. Could if we come for a recovery of these ordinance and ammunitions, and UXOs, and whatever else is out there would. You help us and show us where all to and pinpoint, it and I said yeah I'll be more than happy so. Basically. We went out and they, never had a diver they wouldn't put a diver in the water at the time they used ROV so, I knew direct like the back of my hand so they were flying around her RVs and said go left go right go down his port starboard, here, they are in the stern here the air inside and and they. Were successful, in pinpointing a mountain here the air back here now so feel like it's a great partnership with the Government of Canada you know we're. Running out a little bit of time Rick but quickly I wanted to ask you you you have plans you want to do something with this site can you talk a little bit about that yeah well we feel that we want these this, sites safe for divers and we've been working I guess over the years to. Have these shipwrecks designated. As a National Historic Site so right, now with the shipwreck Preservation, Society I'm. One, of the board directors, and also one of the founding members of that we've, decided, we've we, were, working on a virtual museum project, so everything we're doing with this virtual museum, project, is basically an application, for the, the, federal nomination. Process, for that designation, of a National Historic Site in hopes, that these wrecks are going to be an underwater museum, safe, for, everybody and everybody that, the Government of Canada would say yep, stamp. Of approval come. On go diving with ocean quest well. Preciate, your time thanks for some thanks Rick man that's pretty cool I hope you get your designation, and we're going to take in some more sunshine here with Rick and we're gonna throw back to you Carolyn, in the studio. Thanks. So much Jeremy, that is a very interesting idea, underwater. Music. You. You. As. You saw earlier Ashley, is off tonight but we have Ryan Snowden, standing, by in Halifax. Hi again yeah thanks so much Stoke see we've got the, long-range forecast now and we are again, talking, about the rain tonight and then the clear out as we roll throughout the day on Thursday, it's, gonna be a wet start though central and eastern parts of Newfoundland particularly. On the avalon those rains will be coming down looks, like at a pretty good clip early, in the day and then we're clearing into the afternoon with that sunshine, breaking. Through and, yeah. Not a bad afternoon, 18, to 20 degrees nice. Day on the west coast onshore winds though keeping temps into the high teens pretty, unsettled, tomorrow happy valley-goose Bay up towards named Cartwright. Looks like southeastern, parts of Labrador, down to the Straits will see a nice window, tomorrow where, the sunshine will be. Around for a good portion of the day and then those showers move back in from west to east as we, roll throughout, the afternoon and, into the evening Labrador, City one of the nicest spots tomorrow near 20, degrees so, first, things first this is our cold front that's bringing the wet weather now into happy valley-goose Bay and, increasing. Cloud cover across the island of the rain still, here across the Maritimes, and it is now gonna be rolling, in throughout the overnight let's, time that out for you you can see rolls.
In From Southwest, to Northeast there's, Thursday morning that wet start with a nice day from start to finish along, the west coast there are those showers that will move back into the northern peninsula and remain. For most of the day in southeastern, Labrador, area of high pressure and that nice day for lab City and then that, area of high pressure will be unfirm. Control for Friday thankfully. Keeping this low which is spinning just north of, Newfoundland. East of Labrador it'll, be close enough to bring a few showers to cut right in southeastern, parts of Labrador once again and a bit, of an onshore influence. Along the coast of Labrador, but. A nice day for Newfoundland, and then our next system starting, to approach and we'll push in to, Labrador City as we move into the later parts of Friday. Overall. Though pretty good forecast, for the island, a little. Cool for the coast of Labrador no question happy valley-goose Bay near 21 Memorial and sorry. Friday rather and for, Labrador, City there. Son early and then that increasing, cloud cover and that rain. Moving in for the afternoon and evening hours so the weekend, the all-important, weekend, well it's. All about timing and the forecast, models still not a hundred percent on the exact, timing of this system but it does look like the system will approach through. The day on Saturday, certainly. Some showers into the afternoon for, the West Coast edging, into central parts of Newfoundland, mid. To late afternoon. I think the Avalon actually stays dry until the supper. Time and into the evening hours based, on the latest timing, but some, forecast, models are bringing that shower activity, and a little bit earlier so keeping an eye on that increasing, clouds no, doubt on Saturday, hopefully, that rain holding off until the evening lingering, showers for Sunday morning then we're clearing into the afternoon with, some sunshine now. For, central. Parts of Newfoundland nice day Friday increasing, clouds yeah probably. Maybe. Should have put that radio, icon on there for Saturday late day for you folks as well certainly evening, showers, into the overnight and, looking, at that clear out for Sunday with temperatures, near 20, western Newfoundland certainly some showers for Saturday afternoon looking, likely now and looking, at that clear out for Sunday so, overall not a bad weekend, there a little unsettled, for Labrador through the weekend with some scattered showers both Saturday and Sunday but, some breaks of Sun in there to temperatures, and around that high teens near 20 and for, western parts of Labrador some showers for Friday holding. A little unsettled, for Saturday and a bit cooler for Sunday but. A chance of some sunshine there as, well that is your forecast now Stoke sea back to you, thanks. So much Ryan. Well.

Of his television, and. He, keeps it there, year-round. Low, water turned to wood carving in his retirement. Since then he's made about 50 Birds and it's. Turned out to be a rewarding, pastime. Just. Gives you good, you, know, feeling. That it's, gonna help somebody, you. Know and that's the big thing though and, clutter. Isn't alone he's, one of about 16, retirees. Who meet on Monday nights to carve Brian, Dyckman has made more than a thousand, birds in the last five, years, Dyckman.
Says He can make up to six Birds an hour one. Day he, made 53. You. Would think it would be a very monotonous, type. Of thing to actually make but, you you. Feel good about doing them because you know they're going to end up somewhere, where where people appreciate, them some, of the birds are donated, to the hospice others, are given away to family, and friends and the, rest are sold at the farmers market in Fredericton, Sarah.
