CBC News: The National | 4th unidentified object, Search for sisters in Turkey, Mark Critch
tonight another object shot down from the sky this time near Ontario what's gone on the last two weeks or so 10 days has been nothing short of craziness the latest from Canadian and U.S officials advise us not to come here Brothers travel to the Quake Zone in search of their missing Canadian sister I was extremely disappointed with how the Canadian embassy was handling this my conversation with Mark critch on finding a human touch in political comedy the question I wanted to ask you is where around here light up this is the national with Ian hanamensing for the third time in three days in the fourth in just over a week another unidentified object has been shot down over North America this time over Lake Huron the order came from the U.S president Justin Trudeau ordered one of the targets shot down over Yukon on Saturday as both countries keep eyes trained on the sky questions are mounting on the ground about what exactly is going on Katie Simpson takes us through what details are emerging as more investigations get underway a rare Sunday appearance for the Prime Minister good morning everyone underscoring the urgency of the situation at hand the safety of Canadians is our number one priority and that's why I made the decision to shoot down the object that was a threat to civil aviation and a Potential Threat to Canadians Justin Trudeau gave the order himself to take out an unidentified flying object over the Yukon on Saturday one of four in North American airspace in the last nine days the latest was brought down this afternoon over Lake Huron American and Canadian airspace was temporarily restricted allowing a U.S
fighter jet to shoot it the Pentagon worried it could spy on Military sites and posed a threat to civilian aircraft about 24 hours earlier an American fighter jet took out the one over the Yukon debris is scattered in a remote area near Dawson City recovery will be difficult because of the terrain the FBI is helping the RCMP Canadian Armed Forces and Indigenous community entities on Friday over Alaskan airspace an object the size of a small car was downed Over The Frigid Waters of the northeastern part of the state and off the coast of South Carolina a week ago Saturday a Chinese spy balloon was shot out of the sky what's gone on the last you know two weeks or so 10 days has been nothing short of craziness Pentagon now says the Chinese spy balloon is different than the other objects and that radar is being closely scrutinized out of an abundance of caution I would prefer them to be trigger happy than to be permissive what I think this shows which is probably more important to our policy discussion here is that we really have to declare that we're going to defend our airspace politicians in both countries are seeking greater Clarity from officials in the hopes that conspiracy theories don't fill the void I looked at social media this morning you know all of a sudden massive speculation about alien invasions and you know additional Chinese action or Russian action in the absence of information people's anxiety leads them into uh potentially destructive areas and Katie tell us what the Pentagon said in their update tonight what really stood out Ian is just how little information there is they don't even know how these objects stay in the air they say that they're not calling them balloons for a reason and in that light because there is such little information uh journalists were asking all kinds of questions it was even put the U.S Air Force General whether he could rule out whether space aliens are involved remember conspiracy theories run rampant down here the Pentagon says there's no evidence of that but what may fuel some of that talk is that the general wouldn't rule out anything at this time thanks Katie John Tory's resignation as mayor of Toronto is still reverberating across Canadian politics tonight a city with a lot of hard problems to solve has hard questions about the conduct that will soon send them to the polls Lisa Shing has the story the mayor of Canada's largest city still making public appearances but not for much longer I recognize that permitting this relationship to develop was a serious error in judgment following a report by the Toronto Star of an affair with a subordinate a staffer at the time and decades younger John Tory announced he's stepping down get as important as I always have for the office of the mayor not to be in any way tarnished and not to see the city government itself but through a period of prolonged controversy but a controversy it already is especially since Tori was seen as a steady successor after the tumult of the Rob Ford years finally had a normal mirror obviously this is like stalling city government in a way that's like really inconvenient but I'm hoping that it like gets us something that's actually gonna like move the city forward thank you Tori's resignation comes at a precarious time where there's growing public concern about crime on the city's transit system homelessness and affordability and just after the province had granted Toronto strong mayor Powers giving the ability to pass decisions even with minority support that makes his soon-to-be vacancy and opportunity for his political opponents we have to be honest about our tax rate we have to be honest about reinvesting into the services and infrastructure that has been allowed to deteriorate for too many years some continue to slam Tori's personal conduct it's definitely an abuse of power like going after a 30 year old girl who's directly below you is just inappropriate in any way even without many details there are questions about that power and balance does the other person do they see it as consensual do they feel it is consensual can they say no the city's Integrity commissioner is looking into the relationship and once Tori submits his resignation letter the clock on the by-election to replace him could start as early as Wednesday Lisa shank CBC News Toronto in turkey tonight one more amazing rescue [Applause] this is the Triumph of Hope over despair a week after deadly Quakes struck turkey and Syria workers pulled a 44 year old man to safety he'd been trapped for 162 hours in that time the death toll in turkey and Syria has pushed past 33 000 lives Turkish police have arrested contractors as questions are raised about possible substandard building practices in a system that's widely seen as corrupt and ineffective now you'll see how people are taking things into their own hands including a pair of Canadian Brothers they've joined together in Turkey looking for a life that may hang in the balance they're sisters here's Briars true look at the foundational structure and of course knew it was an act of desperation but when thermal equipment detected something that was warmer than the surrounding Rubble he had to try to get underneath and he said we're gonna dig here I went in there with three local Turks men he was looking for his 33 year old sister Summer she was in Turkey doing research for her PhD uthana spoke to her a few days before the Quake but no one has heard anything since when her family found out that antakia was devastated they made frantic calls but solver's twin brother Saad said they didn't get much help from the Canadian government I was extremely disappointed with how the Canadian embassy was handling this they they just asked for her information and sent us emails to contact and send the information there they advise us not to come here but they did anyway sad clue for Halifax at least here they could talk to people and connect with search and rescue groups so there's two floors down that's where Somer was staying but there isn't the equipment you needed to be able to get down there the brothers have been told it could be weeks before Crews excavate this site this city was one of the hardest hits but help was slow to arrive this is this is our situation but this is uh one of thousands uh we're you know sitting with and crying with local Turkish people them talking about the people they've lost the people that are missing in their life because of this earthquake and it's you know it's heartbreaking sod in one of Summer's friends had been going to hospitals checking patient lists the brothers even went to a burial ground but they believed their sister is still trapped they say they'll stay until they can bring their sister's body back to Canada Briar Stewart CBC News diabeter turkey tonight tons of emergency supplies from the World Health Organization are being deployed in turkey and in Syria oh it's uh heartbreaking the damage and the impact on the people a third flight was scheduled to arrive in Syria today with emergency surgical supplies and medicine to treat pneumonia the who says it's spending 16 million dollars to provide relief in both countries but Syrian and Turkish communities across Canada are worried about the level of Aid getting through cobino oduro on how they're pulling together to collect and send donations Syrian quebecers are raising their voices for humanitarian aid for survivors of the Civil War and of last week's devastating earthquake we have been witnessing on TV the slow death of our fellow syrians without any single help being reaching the most affected areas in North Northwestern Syria they are demanding the borders open so their families can receive Aid it's not fair to to live four million 4.7 million in Northwest Syria without help so we feel we are not fine we are not good even as they lose hope for those beneath the rubble they remain positive that the right amount of Aid relief could save survivors currently living without shelter food or medicine it's freaking cold you know there's Babies there's mothers there's there's pregnant women there's it's you know it's it's beyond beyond speech I I feel like we literally feel troubled Turkish quebecers are also working to get donations the organization Turk Quebec is hoping to send three shipments a week to Istanbul and says it plans to collect from across the province similar efforts can be seen around Canada the information is the donations have been way more than what the Turkish Airlines can immediately take but that is okay because earthquake recovery is very long term in Toronto a youth hockey team spent their Saturday packing up donations destined for turkey it just feels great helping people in need knowing like I can just help them like they need it so we can provide for them organizers from Turkish and Syrian communities across Canada say they'll keep up their calls for help for as long as it takes CBC News Montreal Canada's premiers will meet tomorrow to talk about ottawa's plan for health care more than 46 billion dollars in new money is on the table spread out over 10 years among the many issues not enough doctors yet as JP Tasker explains Canada is passing on hundreds of qualified Physicians there's an acute shortage of doctors in Canada and yet toronto-borne students like Jacob portnoff are struggling to practice their profession it's hard to to hear and to know that many Canadians and Internationals of course are that are qualified for the Canadian system are being um Turned aside with so few Medical School spots in Canada hortonoff went abroad to Australia he's not alone nearly a thousand Canadian students do the same every year when they try to come home they're often told there's no residencies available which is required to be licensed there's so many students who are trying to obtain this very valuable Canadian clinical experience which is crucial for their application and there's not enough seats Canada is passing up hundreds of home-grown doctors like portnoth last year fewer than 30 percent of international graduates were matched with the residency you have to be a Canadian to even apply 1200 qualified Canadian doctor were cut loose this expert says the system is discriminatory medical schools decide who gets a residency they favor their own students leaving those trained abroad at a serious disadvantage there's a don't come home attitude by Canada they the words are cute because they say oh you're welcome you're welcome wanted and welcome to come home to Canada but when you look at the barriers they are very clear that you should not come home go away and so they do the federal liberal government just announced some 46 billion dollars in new health care spending in exchange for that cash critics say Ottawa should demand the provinces do more to streamline foreign credential recognition it should happen within 60 days not within six or seven years the Royal College of Physicians and surgeons say they're working on a solution experts say a real fix will require an end to bias against foreign trained students and a lot more money something that it's in short supply JP Tasker CBC News Ottawa right now Canadian experts are preparing new guidelines for treating childhood obesity and that has many taking a critical look at how they've recently been updated in the U.S Allison
northcott looks at that aggressive approach for kids as young as 12. three years since 12-year-old Christopher Lago started treatment for obesity at Aid his mother says his weight was already having a major impact on his quality of life it was always like crying and say I want to I want to play I want to play soccer but I can't I'm running and I'm having so much difficulties getting bullied by other people I felt like a shame about my weight because is like they made me like less confident about myself and I really really like hurt me the program he's been following at a Montreal Clinic involves intensive lifestyle and nutrition treatment learning habits to suit his body's needs it makes me proud that I made a lot of progress it's the kind of early intensive intervention recommended in new U.S guidelines to treat childhood obesity but the guidelines are controversial because the American Academy of Pediatrics also recommends weight loss drugs and bariatric surgery for kids as young as 13 with severe obesity a body mass index of 35 or more we cannot watch these you know these kids really struggle and and uh their health is at Jeopardy without offering them you know some Solutions in Canada where about one in ten children have obesity updated treatment guidelines are in the works children living with obesity are at risk of high blood pressure they're at risk of cholesterol problems they're at risk of diabetes Dr Melanie Henderson says lifestyle changes are a crucial first line of defense and should be prioritized but she says that doesn't work for all kids there is a subset of children who despite making all their efforts still are living with very severe obesity and very severe complications associated with obesity and for whom pharmacotherapy and bariatric surgery are options that need to be discussed openly but some weight loss drugs and surgery for teens turn the focus away from prevention the concern is uh is that these are simply Band-Aid Solutions and that we really need to get to the root cause of why these children are overweight and obese he says that includes socioeconomic factors like access to healthy affordable food but the focus of the coming Canadian guidelines is on treating obesity they're expected later this year Allison northcott CBC News Montreal some big moments for football fans tonight the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles for the Vince Lombardi trophy at Super Bowl 57. but for some it's not about the game it's the halftime show and Rihanna lit up the stage performing live for the first time in seven years a much anticipated performance for her fans a couple of notable firsts in the game The First Time Each team was led by a black quarterback and the first time Brothers faced each other but off the field there was another significant first Stephanie Mercier looks at the indigenous man from Saskatchewan who was part of it Patrick mitsuing is no stranger to the stage but for this one he is I'm still pinching myself you know that I'm here and I'm part of everything mitsuing is Cree from Makwa sagagan first nation in Saskatchewan he performs the traditional men's fancy dance and runs a dance company this week he's showing tens of thousands of football fans what he can do this year the Super Bowl invited performers like mitsuing to Showcase indigenous culture in the lead-up to the game at an event last week for the first time League officials read a land acknowledgment I feel like you know long overdue but like so excited that they're doing it but some want much more change while a couple of pro teams have discarded controversial nicknames Kansas City still uses one the Chiefs and uses a fan chant the tomahawk chop indigenous groups say it's cultural appropriation and the team is the focus of repeated protests I just want to be seen as a human being and not as this thing you're mocking groups like not in our honor or Advocate against the use of Native American imagery in sport and hope positive steps like this aren't just a token what's going to happen after the Super Bowl leaves are they still going to carry this on I would hope so and we would hope so going forward with other Super Bowls mitsuing feels change is coming I know when I was growing up it was hard for me to find someone I could look up to that looked like me and uh you know now we're taking up all these spaces and being included it's so amazing amazing he says for this and the Next Generation to see Stephanie Mercier CBC News Vancouver Shoppers for instacart are questioning how

to take the company's word they're being paid the promised rates so they've asked go public to investigate here's what Carolyn Dunn found out Oswego has been shopping and delivering groceries for instacart for a year but just months into the gig he noticed he wasn't getting paid as much as he'd expect it Shoppers are told they get a minimum of seven dollars per batch and 40 cents per kilometer for delivery so I only got paid a couple bucks for the for the shopping that doesn't seem right according to instacart it is right it's Shoppers who are confused the total batch payment is inclusive of this mileage component not in addition to instacart said in a statement confused well so was Josh but the company says Shoppers are told in advance what their total compensation will be but unlike most Canadian workers the full breakdown of their pay is not shown to them now when Shoppers ask for mileage details from support agents they're told we can't show you the breakdown but your pay is correct you should know what you're getting paid and what the breakdown is employment lawyer Shayla turkington says transparency and pay is a minimum entitlement how does a worker know they're getting

over the last couple of years and then starting January everything went down like half he's courted a series of videos to Lobby instacart using months of his own order stats to support his case to no

pleading for help as they struggle to treat the thousands injured after the earthquake he's doing 50 cases a day it's overwhelming just to keep up with the crush injuries an exclusive look inside a Syrian Hospital trying to keep people alive with few resources and the man unafraid to confront Prime Ministers wondering the question I wanted to ask you is where around here light up Mark critch talks comedy in a polarized World Twitter isn't real right and politicians aren't real the national takes you deeper into the story shaping your world next [Music] [Music] Medical Aid is flowing into turkey from around the world but in Syria it has been slower in coming border restrictions and a heavy-handed regime have choked supply routes a surgeon sent us this video with his desperate plea no military equipment no food five days after the Arctic week nothing I want to see for everybody to help us as fast as possible there's only one border crossing in Northwest Syria that's open to humanitarian Aid today the un's top emergency relief coordinator was there Martin Griffith says more access points are needed within Syria the U.N has been widely criticized for its slow response to the earthquake but some help from Canada will soon be on the way Katie Nicholson gives us an exclusive Glimpse inside struggling Syrian hospitals and meets the Syrian Canadian doctor determined to make a difference in a place of chaos a call from a place of safety surgeon to surgeon how are you doing today he's doing 50 cases a day it's overwhelming just to keep up with the crush injuries anas al-qasam's friend Samia kadur has been operating Around the Clock since the earthquake struck his Syrian Hospital sustained damage but there's nowhere else to go hundreds of patients have had to be sent home because hospitals just don't have the capacity to care for them they have significant lack of antibiotics and painkillers and anesthesia drugs Northern Syrian hospitals were already in hard shape before the earthquake after years of Civil War closed and restricted borders and a regime accused of diverting aid from the region [Music] doctors on the ground show makeshift Hospital Wards packed with survivors foreign patients being treated with dwindling supplies like painkillers While others line outside suffer and wait so these are Crush injuries they need a complex Healthcare hypothermia is a big deal they need admission to the ICU many of them they need incubation evacuation of subhematoma or abdominal bleeding the need is now critical and it will continue the next phase you're going to need to do more reconstructive surgery and more plastic surgery for the limbs injuries but the concern after that is that these fragile communities will be exposed to infectious diseases such as cholera and so forth now Al qasam and a small team from Canada and the US are heading in to help something he's done many times before during the Syrian War I saw that firsthand when I used to go to Aleppo and to idlib for many medical missions in the last 10 years they really appreciate when you come and let them relax and give them some social support and then you know the the surgeries you know we kind of work around the clock doing schedule surgeries and before he goes in an urgent appeal from the people he hopes to relieve he's asking the Canadian government the Canadian people to send supplies immediately as soon as possible in his counting of Canada and counting on surgeons like Al qasem even if just for a few days and Katie what are doctors telling you about what's happening inside Syrian hospitals well they're just buckling under the pressure you have to realize many of the medical staff that have been working 24 7 they've only been getting about four hours sleep a night they're just inundated with people more than a third of the cases are women and children they talk about how how difficult it is with the children it's heartbreaking some have lost their parents you hear them crying perhaps a little bit in that story there and those are the sounds that they're dealing with every day people crying out and they're saying that the patients who survive they are going to need Rehabilitation they're going to need prosthesis long-term care add to that the need on the ground for food shelter electricity all of this doctor say points to a need to keep that border with turkey open and porous for years to come Katie thank you you're welcome coming up the push to make zamboni's green Apple's no longer just for the roads but first Mike critch live on the scene at Coleman's grocery in seija before Chris takes on a familiar role my conversation with the famed comic is next [Music] we are backstage in 22 minutes with one of the Stars Mark Rich how you doing great this is a prop room we need lots of props there's Canada so you need a curling Stone but look it's fake my hand is fake it's all lies like politics it's not all lies but we have lots of questions for Mark right after this if I feel unnecessary things in schools nowadays one critch comes from that long line of great Newfoundland comics John Baer just ran away from me he ran onto the national stage 20 years ago chasing politicians on this hour has 22 minutes all right you go get your chopper I love you buddy porn actress taking the news and adding a punch line saying they have no idea how the bug's gotten the soup since everyone knows insects come with the chili very much and now his second prime time show bringing his quirky childhood to life now in its second season Mary turn of all day here what is it he's a busy guy but he took a break to chat on the 22-minute set in Halifax so you've been a performer on this program for almost 20 years so you've gone from being the youngest guy in every room to like maybe the oldest guy how does that feel it's interesting because I still think of myself as a young guy yeah 22 was such a thing when I joined 10 years in that I always felt like I was house sitting and trying to fit into it and not really uh get in the way or not be too much of yourself and it's like house sitting and you're afraid to put your feet up on the table and then you realize oh I've been here a while I put my feet up on the table and the actual owners never come back so now it's just you're squatting that's what I feel like I feel like at any moment now Rick and Mary will come back and say what are you doing here get out of here and given all the skits you've done all the interviews you've done how has that changed you like you find yourself like angrier calm or what would you say I probably think all the interviews and stuff I've done have made me calmer I think at first it seems like you're in there to slay a dragon you know the prime minister is you know he's this big creature he's just he's this historical figure and you're just some little comedian from Newfoundland and you gotta insult him on the Run did your parents put you in boxing lessons so that Joe Clark's daughter would stop beating you up and now the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau whom I've been interviewing from before he was even in politics and I'm like oh you're this guy okay and you've been through this thing and I I have an understanding of you as a person more so than the institution of being the Prime Minister wondering the question I wanted to ask you is where around here [Music] and then I I realized that people are just now people trying to do their best might have differences opinion than you but generally they're thinking that it's their way is their right way or are trying to survive so yeah it's I think it's less black and white and more gray the world as the more I learn about it through talking to people yeah it's funny you think the world you know is more gray but but outside of your head it it feels more polarized than ever I mean as a satirist as a comedian does that make it tougher uh I think people are in the middle I I think real people like Twitter isn't real right and politicians aren't real and pundits aren't real especially in this world where things are um hyper divisive one side the other and I think but the average person you meet they're just trying to make ends meet and I think really the reality is uh grayer than media would have it appear to be but when you finish when an episode of 22 minutes for example airs like is there a moment where you kind of think okay I'm not sure if I want to look at my phone now or watch uh you know whatever the reaction is and kind of I used to be like that I used to be way more into Twitter and stuff like that you know and I'd be fighting back with people and they'd say something that's not true and I go I got that person and I realized what am I doing because when you get out of the real world nobody knows what you're talking about it's it's a small group um in the old days I used to get letters I've been doing this long enough I used to get letters and or in postcards and man you've got to be pretty upset with someone to go that critch where's that film Nova Scotia on Bell Road you say uh what's the postal code for that well I'm gonna buy a stamp and that's when you're they're mad but when anybody could just fire something off what I find is I think I'm being fair if if I get a bunch of people who live liberal saying I pick on Justin too much and then a bunch of people who are conservative saying you know pick out them enough and those numbers are generally about the same you'll get you'll you're doing all right let's take you back to a more innocent time before Twitter yeah um and and your audition tape for 22 minutes yes which was actually funny this audition tape has five minutes yeah I thought you know Rick Mercer was leaving right and so people in Newfoundland were like oh you should try this is yours you should do this they're moving across the island portion of the province I took my shirt off I went very desperate I was a weatherman and I drew a Newfoundland map weather map on my chest and I thought okay I know I can do this because I've been writing sketches and Performing and I'd been doing like topical commentaries locally and I thought okay well this this is something if I can get there I think I can do it hurry hurry hurry can you sign my golf ball has this always been here let's talk about son of a critch first of all the book so good what did I ask you did you write it yourself you did ask me if I had ghosts written like like Prince Harry but no I I yeah I did write it myself it is a fantastic book and has turned into a beautiful series like it's poignant and it's funny oh three Leo see him on the spot news at the liquor store where the scene is sobering there's so much to ask you about but let me start with this you you know your old family home is is has been recreated for that yeah obviously scenes from your childhood your family what's it like to to to to to recreate all those scenes from your childhood it's really it's bizarre because it's um my family home hasn't been there since like the mid 90s right Mom and Dad are no longer there and I kind of sketched out what the house was like and you know it had to be kind of small and it was right next to this radio station and our art Department kind of did it pretty authentically and then they'd be I had my dad's uh kind of cozy war and I showed him pictures and they're like okay we got similar Fabric and we've recreated his outfits I'm like well I'm not Churchill like nobody's gonna know you know it's not like oh that's not what was worn during the blitz so I was like well but it's so strange I'm wearing my uh dad used to wear this red VOCM jacket to work as part of the news team you know they all wore red jackets and uh and so I had dad's jacket and I had uh his gold patches on that and I'm wearing a recreation but with dad's actual buttons and patches on it so sometimes I'll be sitting at the kitchen table and over here is furniture that was actually in our dining room growing up the the uh radio on the counter is the one for my childhood home because I kept a bunch of this stuff and I'll look down at myself in peripheral vision I'm home and I'm in my father's body and I think what the hell have you done you mad man it's kind of strange action a hell of an article here about the fence scissors it could be Melancholy at times you know because you miss him and stuff like that but um but then I'll hear you know Malcolm and Benjamin laughing or whatever and I realize they're gone the house is gone we have this other shell of a place and now we're filling it up with new memories and it moves on and like that's a big theme of the show onwards you know you keep going forward Mike Rich live on the scene at Coleman's grocery in Saint John so Mike critch you know famous newsman you must have thought about this what would what would he be thinking of this program your portrayal of him Hearts delighted and mortified right he would you know did you had to make it so small did you had to talk about that the house your mother could be dressed a little nicer hey why did you say I couldn't get a raise and but he'd be going around in St John's did you see the kids show last night pretty good huh and I've been making fun of dad I mean I first made fun of Dad when I was 15 when I rented out a local theater called the LSP Hall launched your arms protective Union and um I did the war that dad's red jacket and did an impression of dad the audience loved it and I've been doing the same thing since I was 15.
um and you know and you make fun of your parents you make fun of your teachers I'm still doing that and then you know at some point the principal of the school becomes the prime minister so it's always just been I'm doing the same thing I was doing with 15 just making fun of the powerful people in my life because I didn't do my homework we feel like we know the young you from your book and and from the show um and and I I wonder about the young Mark critch what could he even dreamed that that the adult would be doing this job now what would he thought the fact that I would be talking about my family and have a show that would I couldn't even have imagined that and every now and then I mean I it hits you every night it's a job you're going forward every now and then you stop and go that's so strange I I couldn't have imagined uh things working out better at that age you know I would have been happy just to be doing kids birthday parties I just wanted to get on stage everything about you is so unique you're a newfoundlander you've got two Prime Time Shows one of them is being shot in Halifax you've got two books what's next what's your plan I you know I've never had a plan I've kind of like let life happen you know I kind of follow go forward and find out what's interesting I always assumed at different points well it's not going to get better than this right like I was making a living in St John's when I got this I was 28. at that point I thought oh okay it was like I'm making a living okay I can keep food on table okay it's not gonna get better than this and I got 22 and I thought well it's not going to get better than this and then now the books and the and and I and the other TV show I mean that's I could never have imagined that so I I can't imagine it getting better than this but I still want to try new things because I I didn't think any of this would work so yeah give it a shot if you fail who cares is Canada no one will even know if you're successful let alone if you fail how are they going to find out well we all know you're a funny guy you're an immensely talented guy in so many ways so you deserve it all so good for you thank you and you're not doing so bad for an East Coast Young fella either right oldest guy in the room oh this guy in the room right it's our time it was so much fun spending like about a day and a half on the 22 minutes set so much talent in Halifax that show developed so much talent in Halifax and critch is funny just all the time between takes when you know after we did the interview just a very very funny guy coming up next the Jeep used in the second world war that's driving a connection between Canada and the Netherlands I said yeah I think we got your father's Army Duty and that's how the story continues a story that has a veteran's name written all over it in Our Moment it's a ritual that indoor skating rinks across Canada that resurfacing machine circling the ice making it smooth and shiny but in its wake is a dirty little secret indoor air pollution Emily Chung shows us how climate-friendly technology is helping clear the air skating and hockey are good exercising good fun for these teens but at this rink in Mississauga there's plenty of entertainment even when you're off the ice most ice resurfacers in Canada run on natural gas or propane burning those generates nitrogen oxides the same pollutants produced by gas stoves they're linked to respiratory problems like asthma but this one is electric and that can make a big difference to the air these kids are breathing between 2017 and 2020 Health Canada measured indoor air quality at 16 ranks in Ottawa and Saskatchewan at seven of those ranks nitrogen oxides were sometimes above Health Canada's short-term exposure limits those levels climbed through the day and only dropped part way overnight so at the very start of a day in a nice Arena they're sometimes double three four times the level outside the building before they even do one resurfacing at the arena an electric resurfacer changed that when we switched the electric it was continuously at or below the outdoor limits so you draw knocked it down 10 to 20 times by switching over to Electric very quickly so it was a great way to remove the pollution in a building it's been a trend across the country from North couch and BC to Halifax Nova Scotia and to Mississauga Ontario despite the higher upfront cost to the extent that we can Electrify our Fleet we want to switch over to electric and that of course moves us away from the internal combustion engines away from other types of fuel pollution and of course it's a more climate-friendly solution for our ice rinks in the old days when I started you could always smell the propane from the old zambonis and that wasn't a very good hockey rink smell so I think it's pretty cool no pun intended but it's a breath of fresh air making Arenas a little Greener cleaner and healthier Emily Chung CBC News Mississauga and here's a throwback to a vehicle from the second world war this Jeep was used by New Brunswick's Buck Seer when he served with the Canadian signal Corps that jeep made its way from the beaches of Normandy to the Netherlands and now nearly a century later it's being reconnected with the family of the man who drove it and tonight it's our moment six months ago I bought it as a presence for the presence for the family we had it taken out for a spin on a sunny day and the Sun was shining in the steering wheel and we saw some scratching and then we saw our name boxire Ken Belton and B New Brunswick we found out a Facebook article and I said yeah I think we got your father's army jeep well he had sent me a picture so I mentioned the back and I said yes that is definitely my father I was happy I was shocked and I was also sad sad that my dad had just passed four years earlier he landed in the beach of Normandy the second day after he went from France into Brussels he went into Holland you got it up and running yeah then you also need to take step two and make it complete your original Canadian again all the markings are back on the Jeep as it was my grandson who happens to be named you and buck McCormick is going over next year on a school trip and he's going to be taking the same Journey one thing or another he must drive his Jeep then the circle is in my eyes complete whatever it takes he will drive at you everything about that story is so incredible including the fact that it came ashore during the Normandy invasion and uh Buck did go back to the Netherlands he did sit in a jeep his family said is that your Jeep he says no because I wrote my name on mine and so remarkable that it was eventually found and that the family in the Netherlands contacted him that is the national for February the 12th thanks for being with us have a great night foreign [Music]
