The National for Friday May 25, 2018 — Mississauga Bombing, Harvey Weinstein, Abortion


>>Andrew: ON THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, TWO MASKED MEN ON THE RUN, AFTER THEY WALK NOD A MISSISSAUGA RESTAURANT AND SET OFF A BOMB. DOZENS WERE INSIDE, INCLUDING KIDS. AND THE MYSTERY FOR POLICE TONIGHT, WHY WERE THEY TARGETED? A WATERSHED MOMENT FOR THE #METOO MOVEMENT, AS HARVEY WEINSTEIN IS CHARGED, CUFFED AND LED INTO COURT. BUT WHY NOW? THE ACCUSATIONS THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING. AND WILL MILLENNIALS DECIDE THE ONTARIO ELECTION? THIS IS “THE NATIONAL”. [ * ]>>Andrew: POLICE ARE HUNTING TWO SUSPECTS TONIGHT AFTER A BRAZEN BOMB ATTACK AT A POPULAR INDIAN RESTAURANT IN MISSISSAUGA. A FAST GROWING CITY WEST OF TORONTO. IT WAS AN ACT AS SHOCKING AS RARE. AND ONE THAT TRIGGERED A STRONG RESPONSE.>>I WANT TO ASSURE EVERYONE THAT EVERY POLICE RESOURCE IS BEING USED RIGHT NOW TO LOCATE THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS HORRENDOUS ACT.>>Andrew: IT’S BEEN ALMOST 24 HOURS NOW AND THE TWO ALLEGED BOMBERS STILL OUT THERE. ABOUT 10:30 LAST NIGHT, THEY WALKED INTO THE BOMBAY BHEL RESTAURANT, FACES COVERED, WEARING DARK HOODIES, SET OFF THE EXPLOSION AND THEN FLED. THERE WERE TWO PRIVATE PARTIES UNDER WAY AT THE TIME. CHILDREN THERE, TOO. NONE OF THEM HURT, BUT 15 ADULTS WERE, THREE CRITICALLY. BUT TONIGHT, THEY’VE BEEN STABILIZED AND ALL VICTIMS RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL. BUT STILL ONE OF THE BIGGEST QUESTION MARKS, WHY BOMB A RESTAURANT FULL OF CUSTOMERS? AND IT’S NOT JUST POLICE CHASING DOWN THE ANSWER, VIK ADHOPIA SPOKE TO THE PEOPLE AFFECTED BY THE ATTACK.>>Reporter: NUMBERING THE EVIDENCE, PORING OVER THE DEBRIS, ANYTHING THAT CAN HELP POLICE PIECE IT ALL TOGETHER. A TYPICAL EVENING AT A BUSY POPULAR RESTAURANT SHATTERED IN ONE VIOLENT MOMENT, ONE WITNESS DESCRIBED IT AS SOMETHING LIKE A MINI EARTHQUAKE.>>THERE WAS A BIRTHDAY PARTY, SO EVERYTHING WAS DESTROYED. LOTS OF THINGS ON THE FLOOR, MANY PEOPLE SCREAMING. THEY’RE TRYING TO RUN OUT FROM THE RESTAURANT.>>Reporter: THE OWNER WAS AT THE RESTAURANT WHEN IT WAS BOMBED. HIS SON-IN-LAW IS IN SHOCK AND HAS NO IDEA WHY IT HAPPENED.>>IT’S SURREAL TO SAY THE LEAST. YOU’RE NOT EXPECTING IT.>>Reporter: POLICE ARE STILL SEARCHING FOR A MOTIVE.>>THERE IS NO INDICATION THIS IS A TERRORIST ACT, NO INDICATION THIS IS A HATE CRIME. WE HAVEN’T RULED ANYTHING OUT.>>Reporter: MOMENTS AFTER THE EXPLOSION, A WITNESS TELLS US THEY SAW TWO MEN RUNNING TOWARD THIS SUBDIVISION AND EARLIER WE SAW POLICE SEARCHING THIS AREA.>>WHEN THE EXPLOSION HAPPENED, I WAS STANDING BEHINDMY CAR, AND THEN I HEARD THE NOISE, WHAT HAPPENED? AND THEN I SAW TWO PEOPLE RUNNING PRETTY FAST.>>Reporter: NOW, THIS QUIET SUBDIVISION IS PART OF THE CRIME SCENE. OFFICERS LOOKING TO PEOPLE HERE FOR ANYTHING THAT WILL HELP, NOTING DOWN EVERY WORD AND EVERY FOOTPRINT. ANY POSSIBLE LEADS. NEIGHBOURS ARE IN DISBELIEF.>>THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS A SHOOTING OR SOMETHING AND BLEW MY MIND THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY DOOR.>>WHEN I CAME HERE, I SAW ALL THIS ACTION AND A LOT OF POLICE I SAY, OH, MAN, THIS IS CRAZY.>>IT’S VERY SHOCKING BECAUSE YOU DON’T HEAR THESE KIND OF INCIDENTS HAPPENING IN CANADA, ESPECIALLY IN MISSISSAUGA, BECAUSE IT’S A VERY SAFE PLACE.>>Reporter: THE MAYOR APPEALED TO ANYONE WHO MIGHT KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE ATTACKERS.>>THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE THIS NEED TO ANSWER TO THEIR CRIMES AND BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.>>Reporter: BUT WITH JUST ONE PHOTOGRAPH OF THE SUSPECTS AND NO DETAILS OF MOTIVES, THE HUNT GOES ON FOR ANSWERS.>>Andrew: NOW, UNCERTAINTY BREEDS FEAR. AND POLICE AND POLITICAL LEADERS ARE TRYING TO FORM A UNITED FRONT AGAINST IT BY REMINDING PEOPLE NOT TO JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS.>>THEY FELT THAT IT WAS NOT OR COULD NOT BE A HATE CRIME, OR A TERRORIST INCIDENT, BUT THEY HAVEN’T RULED OUT ANYTHING YET.>>THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT THIS INCIDENT IS IN ANY WAY LINKED TO A TERRORIST THREAT.>>THERE IS AT THIS STAGE, NO INDICATION OF ANY CONNECTION TO NATIONAL SECURITY OR ANY ISSUE RELATED TO HATE CRIMES.>>Andrew: AND ONE MORE INTERESTING NOTE ON THIS, THE MAYOR, SHE IS NOT THE ONLY PROMINENT POLITICIAN WHO HAS BEEN TO THE BOMBAY BHEL. FEDERAL SCIENCE MINISTER NAVDEEP BAINS HAS BEEN THERE SEVERAL TIMES AND PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU HAS EATEN THERE. OK, A LOOK AT WHAT ELSE WE HAVE ON TAP FOR TONIGHT. THE POLLS ARE NOW CLOSED IN IRELAND IN A VOTE THAT COULD CHANGE THAT COUNTRY’S STRICT ABORTION LAWS. AS WE AWAIT RESULTS, NAHLAH AYED TALKS TO BOTH SIDES OF THE DEBATE. AND A LITTLE LATER, WILL THEY OR WON’T THEY? WE TRY TO MAKE SENSE OF DONALD TRUMP’S LATEST COMMENTS ABOUT WHETHER HE PLANS TO MEET NORTH KOREA’S KIM JONG-UN FACE-TO-FACE.>>>A TURNING POINT FOR THE #METOO MOVEMENT. HARVEY WEINSTEIN FACING RAPE CHARGES. LET’S START WITH STEVEN D’SOUZA AND WEINSTEIN’S DAY IN COURT.>>Reporter: IT’S A SCENE MANY OF HIS ACCUSERS NEVER THOUGHT THEY’D SEE. HARVEY WEINSTEIN, A MAN USED TO WALKING RED CARPETS, NOW IN HANDCUFFS DOING A PERP WALK.>>SITUATION WHERE HE WAS ABLE TO VIOLATE THEM SEXUALLY.>>Reporter: HIS SMILE VANISHED IN COURT AS HE WAS CHARGED WITH TWO COUNTS OF RAPE AND ONE OF A CRIMINAL SEXUAL ACT. IT’S BEEN SEVEN MONTHS SINCE HIS BEHAVIOR, LONG RUMOURED IN THE INDUSTRY, BECAME NATIONAL HEADLINES. LUCIA EVANS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO TELL HER STORIES, SHE SAYS WEINSTEIN USED HIS POWERFUL POSITION TO LURE HER TO A MEETING WHERE SHE SAYS HE FORCED HER TO PERFORM ORAL SEX. THAT ALLEGED 2004 ENCOUNTER LED TO ONE OF TODAY’S CHARGES. THE TWO RAPE CHARGES DATE TO 2013. THE ACCUSER IN THAT CASE HAS YET TO TELL HER STORY. WEINSTEIN’S LAWYER SAYS HE WILL PLEAD NOT GUILTY AND THEY’LL FIGHT TO GET THE CHARGES DISMISSED, THEY’RE NOT SUPPORTED BY THE FACTS AND ALL OF HIS CLIENT’S SEXUAL ENCOUNTER WERE CONSENSUAL.>>TO THE EXTENT THERE IS BAD BEHAVIOR IN THAT INDUSTRY, THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. BAD BEHAVIOR IS NOT ON TRIAL IN THIS CASE.>>Reporter: BRAFMAN HAS REPRESENTED CONTROVERSIAL CLIENTS BEFORE. IN 2011, HE GOT RAPE CHARGES DISMISSED AGAINST A FRENCH POLITICIAN AFTER QUESTIONING THE ACCUSER’S CREDIBILITY. HERE, TOO, THE WOMEN’S STORIES WON’T HOLD UP, HE SAYS.>>ASSUMING WE GET 12 FAIR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT CONSUMED BY THE MOVEMENT THAT HAS OVERTAKEN THIS CASE.>>Reporter: THE MAN WHO ONCE RULED HOLLYWOOD MUST NOW WEAR A TRACKING MONITOR AND IS THE SUBJECT OF AT LEAST TWO MORE INVESTIGATIONS.>>Andrew: MORE THAN 70 WOMEN HAVE COME FORWARD WITH ALLEGATIONS AGAINST HARVEY WEINSTEIN. RANGING FROM RAPE TO SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND THAT LONG LIST INCLUDES SOME BIG NAMES IN HOLLYWOOD. GWYNETH PALTROW, ANGELINA JOLIE, ASHLEY JUDD, BUT ONE OF HIS FIRST, WAS ACTOR ROSE McGOWAN AND TODAY, SHE JOINED WOMEN REACTING TO THE ARREST. THEY HAD A LOT TO SAY.>>THIS MAN — >>Reporter: ROSE McGOWAN ALLEGES HARVEY WEINSTEIN RAPED HER. SHE NEVER THOUGHT SHE’D SEE HIM IN HANDCUFFS.>>TODAY WE REJOICE, THIS IS FOR ALL OF US WHO HAVE BEEN TOLD WE’RE NOTHING.>>Reporter: REACTION EXPLODED ONLINE. IN THE SAME SPACE WHERE WOMEN SHARED THEIR STORIES OF ABUSE, USING THE HASH TAG ME TOO, TODAY THEY USED THE SAME PLATFORM TO CELEBRATE. SENDING LOVE TO ALL MY SISTERS TODAY WHO STOOD UP AGAINST A MONSTER, TWEETED MIRA SORVINO WHO SAYS HARVEY WEINSTEIN SEXUALLY HARASSED HER. ARGENTO SIMPLY WROTE, WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG, HARRY? FOR MONTREAL MODEL TRUEDLE, THIS DAY WAS A LONG TIME COMING. SHE CAME FORWARD WITH HER OWN ALLEGATIONS AGAINST WEINSTEIN LAST FALL AND WAS INTERVIEWED BY NEW YORK POLICE.>>IT’S A HOPEFUL MOMENT FOR LOOKING FORWARD. I’M A MOTHER AND IT MAKES ME VERY HAPPY TO KNOW THAT THESE THINGS WILL MOST LIKELY BE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR THESE PREDATORS TO BE DOING THAN THEY USED TO BE, EVEN JUST YESTERDAY.>>Reporter: SHE SAYS WEINSTEIN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED HER IN A NEW YORK RESTAURANT TEN YEARS AGO.>>WE SHINE A LIGHT ON THIS VICTORY, EVEN THOUGH IT’S NOT COMPLETELY WON YET.>>Reporter: TORONTO LAWYER ROBIN PARKER CALLS TODAY A WATERSHED MOMENT.>>ONE OF THE INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT SOMEONE AS POWERFUL AS HARVEY WEINSTEIN BEING CHARGED, IS THAT INDIVIDUAL WOMEN IN OUR SMALL LIVES WHO AREN’T FAMOUS PEOPLE, I THINK WILL FEEL MORE EMPOWERED TO COME FORWARD.>>Reporter: WHILE THE LEGAL FIGHT IS JUST BEGINNING, SHE SAYS SHE’S HOPEFUL.>>COME A LONG WAY SINCE THIS HAS FIRST BEEN EXPOSED AND THERE IS A LONG WAY TO GO, BUT WE’RE CERTAINLY ON THE WAY.>>Reporter: A LONG WAY TO GO, BUT WOMEN WHO HELPED LAUNCH THE #METOO MOVEMENT SAY THEY’RE READY FOR WHAT IS TO COME.>>Andrew: AS MORE AND MORE WOMEN HAVE SPOKEN UP ABOUT SEXUAL MISCONDUCT, NEXT WEEK, YOU’LL HEAR A CONVERSATION BETWEEN ROSE MARY AND A DRIVING FORCE IN THE EFFORT, GLORIA ALLRED.>>I’M ATTORNEY GLORIA ALLRED, I REPRESENT 33 ACCUSERS OF BILL COSBY.>>FOR DECADES IT SEEMS ATTORNEY ALLRED COULD BE FOUND AT THE CENTRE OF EVERY BIG CASE ADVOCATING FOR WOMEN. NO SURPRISE JUST AFTER MOMENTS OF BILL COSBY’S VERDICT, ALLRED DECLARED VICTORY.>>BILL COSBY, THREE WORDS FOR YOU. GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY. THANK YOU.>>HOW ARE YOU, NICE TO MEET YOU?>>Rosemary: IN THE WAKE OF THAT INCREDIBLE NEWS, WE WENT TO MEET GLORIA ALLRED IN HER LOS ANGELES OFFICE.>>Rosemary: THERE IS LOTS OF THINGS CRITICS SAY ABOUT YOU, SELF-PROMOTER, MEDIA MANIPULATOR, SENSATIONALIST, DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE TRY TO LABEL YOU THAT WAY?>>THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE WOMEN TO BE SILENCED AND THEY’RE VERY, VERY DISTURBED BY THE FACT THAT I HELP INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE NOT CELEBRITIES WHO ALLEGE THEY HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED BY CELEBRITIES TO BE HEARD. AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE THAT. BUT WOMEN’S VOICES MATTER.>>Andrew: YOU CAN WATCH FOR THE INTERVIEW RIGHT HERE NEXT WEEK ON “THE NATIONAL”. WOMEN’S VOICES ARE ALSO AN IMPORTANT PART OF ANOTHER STORY TONIGHT. THAT EMOTIONALLY CHARGED ABORTION REFERENDUM IN IRELAND. WE’RE ONLY EXPECTING OFFICIAL RESULTS TOMORROW, BUT ACCORDING TO EXIT POLLS TONIGHT, IT LOOKS LIKE IRISH VOTERS MAY END A 35-YEAR BAN ON ABORTION. [ * ]>>Reporter: DUBLIN. THE FINAL DAY OF CAMPAIGNING. AND A DELICATE DANCE OF YES AND NO. [ * ]>>Reporter: BEHIND THIS FAULT LINE, IS A LONG PAINFUL ROAD.>>WE WANTED TO BRING HER HOME. TO MEET MY FAMILY. SORRY.>>Reporter: DEVASTATING ARE THE STORIES THAT MADE TODAY POSSIBLE. LIKE THAT OF AMY WALSH, WHO WAS REFUSED AN ABORTION EVEN THOUGH HER FETUS HAD NO CHANCE OF SURVIVAL AND HER LIFE WAS ULTIMATELY AT RISK.>>I JUST REMEMBER BEGGING THEM, SAYING, PLEASE, CAN YOU NOT INDUCE ME, LIKE IF YOU’RE WORRIED ABOUT THIS, PLEASE, AND THEY JUST SAID AS LONG AS MY BABY HAD A HEART BEAT, THEY COULD NOT INTERVENE UNTIL MY LIFE WAS IN DANGER.>>Reporter: SHE WAS FORCED TO TRAVEL TO LIVERPOOL FOR AN ABORTION. THE TORTURED STORY GOES BACK TO ANOTHER REFERENDUM. AND A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT BANNED ABORTIONS. COUNTLESS HUSHED STORIES SINCE OF EXTREME MEASURES.>>THEY HAVE THEIR FRIENDS PUNCH THEM IN THE STOMACH, THROW THEMSELVES DOWN THE STAIRS, WIRE COAT HANGERS, HAVE AGGRESSIVE SEX, THEY ABUSE THEIR BODIES IN A MILLION DIFFERENT WAYS IN THE HOPE OF BRINGING ON A TERM NIAGARA. — TERMINATION.>>I WAS ABLE TO GO AND SAY I TRAVELLED.>>Reporter: ESTIMATED 170,000 OPTED TO TRAVEL INSTEAD. OFTEN IN SECRET. HERE, SOME OF THEIR STORIES ARE READ ALOUD. THE GOVERNMENT WANTS IT TO STOP.>>THIS IS A ONCE IN A GENERATION VOTE AND IF THERE IS A YES VOTE, IRELAND WILL BE IN THE SAME PLACE, JUST A PLACE THAT IS A LITTLE MORE COMPASSIONATE.>>Reporter: UNFATHOMABLE FOR THEM, TOO, IS THE GOVERNMENT’S PROPOSAL TO ALLOW ALL ABORTIONS UP TO 12 WEEKS. THEY PLAY A RECORDING OF A FETAL HEART BEAT TO MAKE THEIR POINT.>>WHEN YOU WORKED IN THE AREA OF SAVING LIFE, ABORTION IS LIFE-ENDING. THIS IS NEVER LIFE SAVING. OUR GOVERNMENT HAS NEVER REACHED OUT TO THE FAMILIES, TO THESE WOMEN, EXCEPT TO OFFER THEM TO END THE LIFE OF THEIR CHILD.>>Reporter: WITH SUCH IMPASSIONED ARGUMENTS, NO SURPRISE COME THE REFERENDUM, THE TURNOUT IS SO HIGH. AMONG THE VOTERS, AMY WALSH, SHE HOPES THE VOTE WILL BE HER LOST CHILD’S LEGACY. OTHERS CAME FROM AS FAR AWAY AS CANADA LIKE AMY FITZGERALD, OFF THE PLANE FROM CHARLOTTETOWN.>>I WANT MY VOICE HEARD, THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT ISSUE. IF IT’S A YES VOTE, IT WILL END THE STIGMA AND SHAME.>>Reporter: SOME WOULD HOLD OUT UNTIL THE END, HOPING TO CHANGE ONE MORE PERSON’S MIND.>>I FEEL I’M A WITNESS, WITNESS TO THE BABIES AND FOR THE MOTHERS AND DO MY BEST.>>Reporter: SO MUCH OF THIS WRENCHING DEBATE COMES FROM THE HEART. FOR THEM, IT’S ABOUT ALL THOSE WHO SUFFERED AND IMAGINING A WALK IN THEIR SHOES.>>WE CAN’T BE IGNORED ANY LONGER. AND SILENCE HAS PREVAILED IN THE SOCIETY ABOUT ABORTION, IT’S ACCUMULATED THIS WEEKEND TO A DEAFENING ROAR.>>Reporter: ACCORDING TO THE EXIT POLLS, THOSE STORIES, NOW HEARD, SEEM TO HAVE RESONATED. NAHLAH AYED, CBC NEWS, DUBLIN.>>Andrew: IRELAND IS ONE OF THE FEW DEMOCRACIES THAT DOESN’T ALLOW WOMEN TO HAVE ABORTIONS, BUT IT’S NOT AN OUTLIER IN THE BIGGER PICTURE. HIGHLIGHTED HERE ARE ABORTIONS THAT CAN ONLY BE DONE TO SAVE A WOMAN’S LIFE OR NOT AT ALL. A WOMAN CAN FACE UP TO 30 YEARS IN PRISON FOR HAVING AN ABORTION. HERE ARE THE COUNTRIES, INCLUDING CANADA, WHERE A WOMAN CAN HAVE AN ABORTION. WITHOUT HAVING TO GIVE ANY REASON. IN MANY OTHER COUNTRIES, SHE’D HAVE TO JUSTIFY IT ON HEALTH OR FINANCIAL GROUNDS. AND LOTS MORE AHEAD TONIGHT ON “THE NATIONAL”, INCLUDING THE OUTBREAK IN INDIA THAT HAS TOP OFFICIALS WATCHING. WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE SPREAD OF THE DEADLY NIPAH VIRUS. ALSO WITH THE N.D.P. AND THE TORIES NECK AND NECK IN THE POLLS, WE’LL LOOK AT WHETHER MILLENNIALS ARE KEY IN DECIDING WHO IS THE PREMIER IN ONTARIO. AND CANADA OPENS A SEARCH AND RESCUE STATION IN THE ARCTIC.>>IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE I’VE LIVED IN THE SOUTH, I’VE GAINED THESE SKILLS FROM THE SOUTH. AND I CAN TAKE MY KNOWLEDGE FROM [ * ]>>Andrew: TONIGHT ON “THE NATIONAL”, A CHURCH LIBRARIAN IN OTTAWA IS DEAD AFTER BEING SILENTLY ATTACKED AND THEY DON’T KNOW WHO DID IT. SHE WAS FOUND UNCONSCIOUS YESTERDAY INSIDE THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE READING ROOM. SHE DIED TODAY OF HER INJURIES. MEMBERS OF HER CHURCH COMMUNITY CAN’T EXPLAIN IT.>>THE PEOPLE HERE ARE SO KIND AND GENEROUS, AND IT’S JUST SUCH A SHOCK SOMEONE WOULD COME IN AND DO SOMETHING AS DRASTIC AS THAT, I’M REALLY VERY SAD ABOUT IT.>>Andrew: POLICE HAVE NO SUSPECT AND NO MOTIVE, BUT THEY’RE ASKING ANYONE WITH INFORMATION TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THEM.>>>IN QUÉBEC, THREE CADETS ARE FACING EXPULSION FROM THE CANADIAN FORCES TONIGHT, THEY’RE ACCUSED OF CREATING A VIDEO THAT SHOWS ONE STUDENT MASTURBATING ONTO THE COPY OF THE QURAN. THEY’RE AT ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE. IT HAPPENED AT A PARTY IN MARCH. OTHER STUDENTS REPORTED THE VIDEO. ONCE OFFICIALS GOT INVOLVED, THEY CONSULTED AN IMAM AND HE PRAISED THEM FOR TAKING ACTION.>>THESE PEOPLE, THEY DON’T REALIZE THE IMPACT OF THE STUPID ACTS THEY’RE DOING. THE ARMY ACTED IN THE VERY CORRECT WAY. AND I SALUTE THEM.>>Andrew: NOW, IN ALL, FOUR CADETS ARE BEING PUNISHED. ONE HAS AGREED TO LEAVE THE SCHOOL, TWO OTHERS ARE FIGHTING TO STAY AND THE FOURTH IS NOW ON PROBATION.>>>OFFICIALS IN SOUTHERN INDIA ARE DEALING WITH AN OUTBREAK OF A DEADLY VIRUS YOU’VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF. NIPAH CAUSES BRAIN DAMAGE. IT IS RARE. IT SURFACED IN INDIA, KILLING 12 PEOPLE. SO WHAT IS BEHIND THIS OUTBREAK? HERE’S CHRISTINE BIRAK.>>Reporter: AS THE DEATH TOLL FROM NIPAH VIRUS RISES, SO DOES THE FEAR. PEOPLE EXPERIENCING FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS ARE CROWDING HOSPITALS, WORRIED THEY’VE BEEN INFECTED. NIPAH IS AS DEADLY AS EBOLA, BUT INSTEAD OF ATTACKING BLOOD VESSELS, IT ATAKES THE BRAIN.>>40-75% OF THE PEOPLE INSFEKTED WITH THE VIRUS WILL DIE AND PEOPLE WHO SURVIVE HAVE PERMANENT DEFICITS.>>Reporter: HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY THE FIRST VICTIMS WERE MEMBERS OF THE SAME FAMILY. THEIR DEATHS HAVE BEEN LINKED TO THIS DRINKING WELL WHERE DEAD FRUIT BATS WERE FOUND IN THE WATER. THEY ARE KNOWN TO CARRY THE VIRUS AND SPREAD IT. 20 YEARS AGO, THE VIRUS WAS DISCOVERED AND FRUIT BATS HAD INFECTED PIGS. THE VIRUS DIDN’T KILL THE LIVESTOCK, BUT FARMERS RAISING THE PIGS BECAME INFECTED AND SPREAD IT TO THEIR FAMILIES. 105 PEOPLE DIED AND A MILLION PIGS WERE SLAUGHTERED BEFORE THE OUTBREAK WAS CONTAINED.>>ON DAY ONE, TWO PEOPLE, AND THEN FOUR, AND THEN 16.>>Reporter: NIPAH INSPIRED THE 2011 MOVIE, CONTAGION. IT’S ON THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION’S LIST OF VIRUSES MOST LIKELY TO CAUSE A GLOBAL PANDEMIC. NORTH AMERICA IS NOT HOME TO FRUIT BATS, BUT COULD THE ARRIVE BY PLANE LIKE SARS DID?>>IT WOULD BE UNUSUAL FOR SOMEONE INFECTED WITH THE VIRUS TO LAND IN CANADA. THE REASON IS, EVEN THOUGH WE’RE INTERCONNECTED, THIS IS A VERY RARE INFECTION.>>Reporter: CANADIAN SCIENTISTS HAVE BEEN STUDYING THE VIRUS SINCE 9/11.>>CONCERN ABOUT BIO TERRORISM AND THIS WAS ONE OF THE AGENTS WHICH COULD BE POTENTIALLY USED AS A BIO TERRORIST AGENT, SO WE STARTED TO WORK ON THAT.>>Reporter: THERE IS NO CURE OR EVEN TREATMENT FOR NIPAH. BIO-TECH COMPANIES SAID IT WOULDN’T BE PROFITABLE BUT JUST YESTERDAY A COALITION PLEDGED $25 MILLION TO SPEED UP WORK ON A VACCINE. THE INDIA GOVERNMENT SAYS THE OUTBREAK IS MINOR. NO TRAVEL WARNINGS HAVE BEEN ISSUED, BUT BEACHES IN THE POPULAR TOURIST DESTINATION ARE NOW EMPTY.>>Andrew: NOW, RIGHT OFF THE TOP, CHRISTINE MADE A COMPARISON BETWEEN NIPAH AND EBOLA. THEY’RE BOTH DEADLY, BUT NIPAH IS NOT AS EASILY TRANSMITTED BETWEEN HUMANS. THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF EBOLA, BUT AS OF 2015, NIPAH HAS INFECTED AROUND 600 PEOPLE. THOSE WERE ALL IN MALAYSIA, BANGLADESH AND INDIA. BUT THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION WARNINGS WARNS OTHER COUNTRIES THAT ARE AT HOME TO FRUIT BATS COULD BE AT RISK. THE PHILIPPINES, MADAGASCAR AND GHANA. UP NEXT, ON “THE NATIONAL”, WITH THE RACE AS TIGHT AS THE ONTARIO ELECTION, WE LOOK AT THE CHALLENGES OF A KEY VOTE, MILLENNIALS. FIRST, WHIPLASH ANYONE? JUST A DAY AFTER SAYING HE WAS CANCELLING THE UPCOMING MEETING WITH KIM JONG-UN, DONALD TRUMP HAD THIS TO SAY.>>President Donald Trump: COULD EVEN BE THE 12TH, WE’RE TALKING TO THEM NOW, THEY VERY MUCH WANT TO DO IT.>>HE MUST BE HAVING A GIGGLE [ * ]>>Andrew: JUST ONE DAY AFTER CALLING OFF HIS FACE-TO-FACE WITH NORTH KOREA KIM JONG-UN, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP MADE ANOTHER SUDDEN REVERSAL, SUGGESTING THE SINGAPORE SUMMIT MIGHT NOT BE DEAD AFTER ALL. WHAT IS GOING ON? HERE’S LYNDSAY DUNCOMBE.>>Reporter: DIPLOMATIC WHIPLASH ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN.>>WE’RE GOING TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS, WE’RE TALKING TO THEM NOW.>>Reporter: AFTER CANCELLING THE JUNE SUMMIT BECAUSE OF NORTH KOREA’S ANGER AND HOSTILITY, TODAY DONALD TRUMP SAID IT COULD GO AHEAD AS PLANNED.>>IT COULD EVEN BE THE 12TH. WE’RE TALKING TO THEM NOW. THEY WANT TO DO IT.>>Reporter: WHAT CHANGED? OVERNIGHT, NORTH KOREA SOFTENED ITS TONE, SAYING IN A STATEMENT, WE HAVE THE INTENT TO SIT DOWN WITH THE U.S. AT ANY TIME. ACCORDING TO THE U.S. DEFENCE SECRETARY, IT’S ALL PART OF THE USUAL GIVE AND TAKE OF TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER BIG SUMMITS.>>I’M OPTIMISTIC THAT THE DIPLOMATS ARE WORKING, OUR DIPLOMATS ARE WORKING HARD TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.>>Reporter: THE FUNDAMENTAL STICKING POINT REMAINS, THE U.S. WANTS NORTH KOREA TO GIVE UP ALL ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND NORTH KOREA DOESN’T WANT TO. TRUMP’S CRITICS SAY HE IS GIVING THE UPPER HAND TO KIM.>>HE MUST BE HAVING A GIGGLE FIT RIGHT THERE NOW IN NORTH KOREA.>>Reporter: BUT REPUBLICANS SEE STRENGTH AND EXPECT TRUMP’S NEXT MOVE WILL BE TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE CHINESE PRESIDENT TO STEP IN.>>HE’S GOING TO GO BACK TO CHINA, READ THEM THE RIOT ACT. IF YOU WANT A PEACEFUL CONCLUSION IN THE NORTH KOREAN PROBLEM, HELP ME. IF YOU KEEP PLAYING THIS GAME THAT WE PLAYED FOR 30 YEARS, THERE IS GOING TO BE A WAR IN YOUR BACK YARD, NOT OURS AND NORTH KOREA IS GOING TO LOSE.>>Reporter: GRAHAM SAID THE PRESIDENT WILL END NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR PROGRAMME ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. EITHER DIPLOMACY OR WAR. LYNDSAY DUNCOMBE, CBC NEWS, WASHINGTON.>>Andrew: THE ON AGAIN, OFF AGAIN DRAMA SURROUNDING THE SUMMIT IS SENDING OFFICIALS SCRAMBLING AND LIKELY LEFT THEM CONFUSED IN WASHINGTON AND ASIA. THE PLANNING TEAM OF 30 WHITE HOUSE AND STATE DEPARTMENT STAFFERS IS STILL SCHEDULED TO LEAVE ON SUNDAY FOR A LOGISTICS MEETING IN SINGAPORE, BUT LOCAL MEDIA THERE REPORT THAT HOTEL ROOMS BLOCKED OFF FOR THE SUMMIT HAVE ALREADY BEEN RELEASED BACK TO TOURISTS AFTER TRUMP’S COMMENTS YESTERDAY. WELL NOW TO THE ONTARIO ELECTION AND A DEAD HEAT AT THE TOP OF THE POLLS. THE POLL TRACKER HAS THE NEW DEMOCRATS SLIGHTLY AHEAD. JUST A .1 OF THE PERCENTAGE POINT WITH THE GOVERNING LIBERALING WELL BACK. THE TRAILING LIBERALS LIKELY HOPE TO HAVE THE PRIME MINISTER’S VOTE. HE CAST AN ADVANCED BALLOT TODAY IN OTTAWA. BUT WHILE TRUDEAU GOT A LOT OF CREDIT FOR MOBILIZING YOUNG VOTERS DURING THE LAST FEDERAL ELECTION, THERE IS QUESTIONS ABOUT WHO IS MOBILIZING ONTARIO’S YOUNGER VOTERS? WITH MILLENNIALS OLD ENOUGH TO CAST A BALLOT, MOTIVATING THAT GENERATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER. HERE’S HANNAH THIBEDEAU.>>Reporter: ALWAYS PLOUGHING PLUGGED IN AND ON THE MOVE. MILLENNIALS KNOW WHAT THEY WANT, INCLUDING IN THE ONTARIO ELECTION.>>THE TRANSIT IS HUGE FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE COMPUTING.>>THE FREE TUITION FOR STUDENTS.>>TO SOMEONE WHO WILL KEEP TO THEIR PROMISES.>>IS THIS THE FIRST TIME MILLENNIALS OUTNUMBER?>>THE FIRST ELECTION IN ONTARIO THE BOOMERS AREN’T THE LARGEST COHORT OF VOTERS.>>Reporter: DAVID KNOWS MILLENNIALS, AS 36, HE’S ONE OF THEM. HE SAYS IN THIS ELECTION, THIS DEMOGRAPHIC COULD BE AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE.>>WHILE THERE MIGHT BE LESS LIKELY TO VOTE, IF THEY DO TURN OUT AND THAT’S A BIG IF, IF THEY DO, WATCH OUT.>>Reporter: GETTING YOUNGER VOTERS TO THE POLLS HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ISSUE, BUT RECENTLY THAT TREND MAY HAVE TURNED. JUST LOOK AT THE LAST FEDERAL ELECTION. JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S TEAM TARGETED THOSE VOTERS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 19 AND 36. YOUTH TURNOUT INCREASED BY NEARLY 20%. ULTIMATELY, HELPING THE LIBERALS WIN A MAJORITY.>>HE’S NOT A MILLENNIAL, BUT PROBABLY THE MOST MILLENNIAL LEADER WE’VE SEEN IN CANADIAN POLITICS WHO COULD APPEAL DIRECTLY TO NOT ONLY HOW WE COMMUNICATE AND THINK ABOUT THE WORLD, THE OPTIMISM THAT MILLENNIALS TYPICALLY HAVE.>>Reporter: TRUDEAU HAD A BIG PROMISE THAT APPEALED TO YOUNGER CANADIANS, LEGALIZING MARIJUANA. IN THE ONTARIO ELECTION, THE THREE MAIN PARTIES DON’T HAVE A PLANK LIKE POT.>>WE NEED MORE TRANSIT.>>IT’S TIME WE BRING THE RULES FOR BEER AND WINE SALES INTO THE 21ST CENTURY.>>WE NEED TO TAKE A HARD LOOK AT THE GOVERNMENT SUPPORT FOR POST-SECONDARY.>>Reporter: POLLSTERS SUGGEST THE BIGGEST ISSUE IS BREAKING INTO THE HOUSING MARKET, WHICH FOR MANY IS UNAFFORDABLE.>>WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE?>>THE KITCHEN.>>Reporter: KARA AND AARON, SAY IT’S WHAT THEY’RE LISTENING FOR FROM THE PARTIES.>>BECAUSE WE’RE FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I REALLY LOOKED IN THIS THIS TYPE OF THING.>>Reporter: BUT EVEN HAVING A YOUTH FRIENDLY PLATFORM IS NOT ENOUGH. HOW DO YOU GET A GENERATION OF CORD-CUTTERS TO EVEN KNOW THE MESSAGE? IN CALGARY, THEY HARNESS THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCERS. LAST YEAR, NENSHI’S CAMPAIGN TARGETED POLITICALLY ENGAGED YOUNG PEOPLE, KNOWING THEY WOULD HELP GET THE MESSAGE OUT.>>MOVE IT OUT THROUGH THE SOCIAL NETWORK.>>Reporter: THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THOSE LIKES AND SHARES WILL TRANSLATE INTO VOTES. BUT THE POTENTIAL EXISTS TO INFLUENCE THE OUTCOME ON JUNE 7TH. HANNAH THIBEDEAU, CBC NEWS, OTTAWA.>>Andrew: NOW, ALL THREE LEADERS WILL SQUARE OFF IN ONE LAST DEBATE BEFORE ELECTION NIGHT AND IT HAPPENS RIGHT AT THE CBC IN TORONTO THIS SUNDAY. ROSIE HOSTS HER SPECIAL COVERAGE STARTING 6:00 P.M. EASTERN TIME, YOU CAN WATCH IN ONTARIO AND ON CBC NEWS NETWORK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. JUST AHEAD, THE NATIONAL BALLET OF CANADA GOES WAY BEYOND SWAN LAKE, IT’S FUSING THE ART OF DANCE WITH CUTTING EDGE STAGE CRAFT.>>A LOT OF THE TECHNOLOGIES THAT WE’RE WORKING WITH ARE, ALTHOUGH MAY SEEM LIKE THEY’RE QUITE INVASIVE, ARE ACTUALLY NOT. THE DANCERS>>How do we describe Personal Best? It’s a great question.>>We’ll tackle the stuff you’d be too embarrassed to go to an attractive, wealthy success guru for.>>I’m horrible at having conversations with cashiers.>>I have a complete inability to get up on time.>>I can’t swim.>>I would like to help a cow give birth to its calf.>>Yeah, I think we can help with that.>>I think we can do that. * [ * ] TO SOME PEOPLE, BALLET CAN SEEM OLD-FASHIONED AND TO BE FAIR, IT OFTEN TELLS OLD STORIES, BUT IT’S NOT STUCK IN THE PAST. [ * ]>>Andrew: TWO OF CANADA’S WORLD RENOWNED ARTISTS HAVE JOINED FORCES IN A PROJECT THAT FUSES PRETTY STUNNING VISUAL TECHNOLOGY WITH THE BEAUTY OF HUMAN MOVEMENT. BUT WHEN CUTTING EDGE VISUALS GET INVITED TO DANCE, IS THERE A DANGER THEY COULD TAKE OVER? STEPHANIE SKENDERIS SHOWS US HOW THE PARTNERS STAY IN SYNC.>>Reporter: IT’S NOT ALWAYS THIS DARK IN A BALLET REHEARSAL, BUT THINGS ARE A LITTLE DIFFERENT WHEN THE DANCERS ARE SHARING THE STAGE WITH MULTIMEDIA ELEMENTS. THE GOAL WILL BLEND BALLET WITH TECHNOLOGY IN A WAY THAT ENTICES AUDIENCE WITHOUT TAKING AWAY FROM THE DANCE ITSELF, THAT’S IN THE HANDS OF COTE. HE’S THE PRINCIPAL DANCER TURNED CHOREOGRAPHE CHOREOGRAPHER.>>CAN WE DO A CIRCLE?>>TO ME, THE WHOLE PERFORMANCE FEELS LIKE AN ANIMATED PERFORMANCE COMING TO LIFE.>>Reporter: THE LIGHTS ARE UP TO THE CANADIAN DIRECTOR AND HIS COMPANY, HE’S NOT AFRAID OF SHAKING THINGS UP.>>CLASSICAL BALLET IS A WONDERFUL CRAFT AND I RESPECT IT A LOT, BUT IT NEEDS TO BE REINVENTED. IN A CERTAIN WAY, IF WE WANT THE CRAFT TO SURVIVE.>>Reporter: REINVENTION IS ONE OF LEPAGE’S HALLMARKS, HE’S KNOWN FOR BOLD CREATIONS LIKE THIS CIRQUE DU SOLEIL SHOW, OR THIS SHOW IN QUÉBEC CITY, HIS HOMETOWN. FOR THE FIRST, LEPAGE WILL HONOUR McCLAREN.>>I REMEMBER WATCHING “HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA” AND WHEN THERE WOULD BE OVERTIME, THEN OF COURSE THERE WAS ALL THIS KIND OF DELAY AND IT WAS McLAREN ANIMATION FILM.>>Reporter: THE MOST FAMOUS FILM IS NEIGHBOURS, IT WON HIM AN OSCAR IN 1953 AND HE WON AWARDS FOR HIS FILMS IN DANCE.>>THERE IS SOMETHING VERY PURE ABOUT HIS VISUAL VOCABULARY AND VERY ACCESSIBLE AND UNIVERSAL. AND THAT ALWAYS MOVED ME.>>Reporter: FRAME BY FRAME, WEAVES MCLAREN FILMS TOGETHER WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE AND HIS TECHNIQUES, LIKE STOP MOTION, ANIMATION, USING ACTORS AND DANCERS SYNCED TO MUSIC. LEPAGE SAYS IT’S WHAT HE MIGHT DO IF HE WAS STILL ALIVE, IT’S UP TO COTE TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T OVERWHELM THE DANCE.>>LOT OF THE TECHNOLOGIES WE’RE WORKING WITH SEEM INVASIVE, BUT THEY’RE NOT. THE DANCERS WITH WITHOUT TOO MUCH INTERACTION.>>Reporter: LEPAGE’S PRODUCTION AT NEW YORK’S METROPOLITAN OPERA, DEEPLY DIVIDED CRITICS. THEY SAID IT UPSTAGED THE SINGERS AND THEY EVEN BROKE DOWN.>>THERE IS NEVER TECHNICAL PROBLEMS.>>Reporter: BUT THE RISKS OF GOING HIGH TECH MAY BE WORTH IT SAYS THIS DANCE CRITIC.>>AT ITS BEST, A COLLABORATION LIKE THIS HAS A POTENTIAL TO MAKE BALLET SEEM OF THE MOMENT, THAT AND THIS IS CRUCIAL, THAT IS GOING DRAW IN NEW AUDIENCES. WE WANT TO FEEL AS THOUGH BALLET IS SPEAKING TO US NOW, THAT IT HAS SOMETHING TO SAY TO THE 21ST CENTURY.>>Reporter: IN FACT, TECHNOLOGY AND DANCE ARE HAVING A MOMENT, AND POINTS TO THE 92-YEAR-OLD MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY THAT WRAPPED UP A TWO WEEK RESIDENCY AT GOOGLE AND SHOWED THE POBLTSZ. BUT IT ISN’T ALWAYS EASY TO GET THE MIX RIGHT. ITS CREATORS ACKNOWLEDGE NOT EVERYONE MAY LIKE WHAT THEY’RE TRYING.>>THERE WILL PROBABLY BE PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO ARE AGAINST THAT OR HAVE A CERTAIN SENSE OF WHAT BALLET SHOULD BE, BUT EVENTUALLY PEOPLE TAG ALONG. IF WHAT WE DO IS SINCERE, HONEST AND THE END RESULT IS EXCITING AND MOVING.>>Reporter: WHETHER IT’S A HIT OR MISSTEP IS UP TO AUDIENCES TO DECIDE. STEPHANIE SKENDERIS, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Andrew: WELL, FROM THE STRANGER TO THE SEA, NEXT MONTH, THE COAST GUARD IS OPENING AN INSHORE RESCUE BOAT STATION ON RANKIN INLET AND WILL PROVIDE SEARCH AND RESCUE SERVICES DURING A BOATING SEASON THAT HAS GOTTEN LONGER. THE COAST GUARD HIRED INUIT STUDENTS FROM ACROSS THE NORTH TO RUN IT. EARLIER THIS MONTH, THEY COMPLETED RESCUE TRAINING AT CFB TRENTON AND DAVID COMMON GOT A TASTE OF THE EXERCISES. [ * ]>>Reporter: THIS MAY WELL BE THE JACKPOT OF SUMMER JOBS. IT’S NOT JUST HIGH SPEED MANOEUVRING WITH THE COAST GUARD CREW TRAINING ON SEARCH PATTERNS AND RESCUE, BUT HIGH STAKES OPERATIONS WITH MILITARY HELICOPTERS. IN CASE ONE OF THOSE RESCUES NEEDS MORE HELP FAST.>>JUST LIKE A PRO. [LAUGHTER].>>THAT WAS AWESOME.>>IT WAS INCREDIBLE. NOT A LOT OF SUMMER JOBS IN CANADA GET TO SAY THEY HAD A HELICOPTER ABOVE THEM WHERE YOU COULD ALMOST TOUCH IT.>>SO COOL.>>THIS IS A BIG ONE.>>Reporter: ALLISON AND KIRA ARE FIRST IN A FEW WAYS. ROOKIES IN THE COAST GUARD SUMMER INSHORE RESCUE BOAT PROGRAMME.>>STERN RELEASED.>>Reporter: SET TO OPEN THE AGENCY’S FIRST EVER RESCUE STATION IN CANADA’S VAST NORTH.>>KEEP THAT RED BUOY TO THE STARBOARD SIDE.>>Reporter: AND THE CREW WILL BE ALL INUIT LIKE THEM, ANOTHER FIRST.>>I THINK I AM MOVING FORWARD AS A YOUNG INDIGENOUS WOMAN, IT MEANS A LOT TO ME, BUT IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE I’VE LIVED IN THE SOUTH, I’VE GAINED THESE SKILLS FROM THE SOUTH AND I CAN TAKE MY KNOWLEDGE FROM THE NORTHERN COMMUNITY AND FROM THE SOUTH, COMBINE THEM TOGETHER AND USE THEM.>>ARE YOU OK? ARE YOU ALONE? WE’RE THE CANADIAN COAST GUARD!>>Reporter: THE INTENSE TRAINING PREPARES THE TEAM FOR ONWATER RESCUES AND SOME OF THE COMMON PROBLEMS THEY’LL FACE.>>CONTACT.>>REMEMBER, KEEP YOUR CENTRE OF GRAVITY IN THE BOAT.>>ONE — >>Reporter: BUT AS MUCH AS THE YOUNG INDIGENOUS CREW IS LEARNING FROM THE INSTRUCTORS –>>ONE, TWO, THREE — >>Reporter: THE COAST GUARD IS LEARNING FROM THE INUIT, TOO.>>WE’RE AFTER A COAST GUARD THAT REFLECTS THE CANADA WE SERVE.>>Reporter: WATCHING ALL THE TRAINING IS THE COAST GUARD COMMISSIONER, HE AND OTHER AGENCIES HAVE SENT CANADIANS FROM THE SOUTH TO HELP THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN THE NORTH. NOT SURPRISINGLY, THE INUIT KNOW THEIR AREA BETTER.>>THEY KNOW THEIR WATERS, THEY KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE NEAR THE WATER, THEY KNOW THE RISKS.>>Reporter: THE IDEA OF ACCEPTING LONG HELD LOCAL KNOWLEDGE AND EMPOWERING INUIT YOUNG PEOPLE TO SERVE THEIR COMMUNITIES THEMSELVES IS ONE KIRA AND ALLISON EMBRACE.>>I KNOW THAT THE GOVERNMENTS HAVE BEEN WORKING VERY HARD ON RECONCILIATION STUFF. AND SO HAVING THIS FIRST STATION IN RANKIN INLET, IT’S GOING BE REALLY GREAT AND IT SHOWS THEY ARE WORKING TOWARDS WHAT THEY HAD PROMISED US. IT’S TAKING TIME, BUT THIS IS ANOTHER LITTLE STEP IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING TO GOOD GROUNDS.>>Reporter: KIRA AND ALLISON’S RESCUES WILL START HERE, THE JOINT RESCUE COORDINATION CENTRE IN TRENTON, ONTARIO, A KIND OF 911 FOR SEARCH PATROLS IN CENTRAL CANADA. WHEN A CALL FOR HELP IS RECEIVED, THE COAST GUARD CREW WILL BE DEPLOYED ALONG THE SHORES OF HUDSON’S BAY, A FAR CRY FROM THE RELATIVE CALM OF TRAINING ALONG LAKE ONTARIO.>>IT’S A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND KNOWING THAT WE’RE GOING TO BE LIKE THE FACE THAT SOMEBODY SEES IF THEY’RE IN DISTRESS.>>Reporter: THE REGION THEY’LL PATROL IS VAST, MUCH LIKE THE ARCTIC. THE CREW, WHILE ALL INUIT, COME FROM MANY COMMUNITIES. THOUGH, NONE FROM THE ONE THEY’LL LIVE IN. RANKIN INLET, BUT ALLISON DOESN’T THINK THAT WILL BE AN ISSUE.>>GROWING UP IN THE NORTH, YOU LEARN HOW TO TAKE PEOPLE.>>Reporter: KIRA HAS FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE NEW. SIX YEARS AGO, SHE AND HER FAMILY MOVED FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH. AWAY FROM HER TIGHT-KNIT COMMUNITY IN PANGNIRTUNG IN NUNAVUT ALL OTT WAY TO ONTARIO.>>IT WAS QUITE THE CULTURE SHOCK, I THINK PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE HOW MUCH OF A CULTURE SHOCK IT IS.>>WAS IT HARD?>>YES, IT WAS MOST DEFINITELY HARD.>>WHAT WERE THE THINGS THAT WERE OVERWHELMING ABOUT IT?>>JUST THE WAY THINGS ARE DONE. WE’RE VERY DIFFERENT.>>Reporter: NOW IN EARLY 20s, IT’S BEEN A LONG JOURNEY, ONE THAT IS TAKING HER BACK TO THE ARCTIC ONCE AGAIN, TAKING HER HOME.>>CURRENTLY HAVE THREE SOULS ON BOARD THE HELICOPTER THAT REQUEST THAT YOU ACT AS OUR SAFETY VESSEL, COPY?>>Reporter: SHE’LL BE PART OF A TRADITION HER ANCESTORS HAVE KEPT UP FOR CENTURIES, COMING TO THE AID OF EACH OTHER. BUT NOW, FOR THE FIRST TIME THEY’LL BE DOING IT WITH THE FULL BACKING OF A NORTHERN COAST GUARD STATION. AN IMPORTANT STEP AND ALSO PRETTY COOL WAY TO SPEND THE SUMMER.>>GOOD JOB!>>Reporter: DAVID COMMON, CBC NEWS, ONTARIO.>>Andrew: THOSE ARCTIC WATERS BECOME MORE INVITING TO BOATERS. THE COAST GUARD SAYS IT WANTS TO BE PREPARED FOR A SPIKE IN DISTRESS CALLS. HERE’S MORE FROM THE COAST GUARD COMMISSIONER.>>RIGHT NOW, IT’S A TOURIST ROUTE AND WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN SMALL CRAFT, SAIL BOATS, FAMILY-SIZED CABIN CRUISERS RIGHT UP TO SMALL CRUISE SHIPS. THAT’S THE BIGGEST RISK IN THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE AT THE MOMENT. WE CAN GET INSHORE RESCUE BOAT STATIONS DOING SEARCH AND RESCUE. WE START TO TAKE SOME OF THE RISK OUT OF THE PEOPLE WHO MIGHT VIEW THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE AS AN OBSTACLE COURSE TO BE CONQUERED. IT’S THE WRONG ATTITUDE, WRONG APPROACH. IT’S HOW PEOPLE GET INTO TROUBLE AND WE’RE TRYING TO BRING THE RESOURCES TO BE THERE WHEN PEOPLE NEED US.>>Andrew: BEAUTIFUL PLACE. WE’LL GO DEEPER ON THE STORIES OF THE DAY.

THE AIRLINE AND THE UNION REPRESENTING THE PILOTS HAVE AGREED TO GO THROUGH A SETTLEMENT PROCESS WITH THE HELP OF A FEDERAL MEDIATOR.>>WE JUST HID. WE HID. WE WERE QUIET, MUFFLED CRYING. I HELD HANDS WITH ONE OF MY FRIENDS SAYING, IT’S GOING TO BE OK. WE’RE GOING TO BE OK.>>Andrew: FRIGHTENING MOMENTS IN INDIANA AFTER A STUDENT ARMED WITH TWO HANDGUNS OPENED FIRE IN A CLASSROOM. A TEACHER AND ANOTHER STUDENT WERE SHOT, BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE THE TEACHER THAT WAS SHOT TACKLED THE SHOOTER, PROTECTING OTHER STUDENTS IN THE ROOM. POLICE ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY THE STUDENT OPENED FIRE AND WHERE THE GUNS CAME FROM.>>HOUSE ON THAT SIDE OVER THERE ALSO GONE. THIS IS INSANE.>>Andrew: MY GOSH. AN UP-CLOSE LOOK AT THE DESTRUCTIVE POWER OF HAWAII’S KILAUEA VOLCANO. FIRE ENGULFING HOMES. IT’S NO SIGN OF IT SLOWING DOWN. LOOK AT THE NEW SIGNS OF THE LAVA HITTING THE PACIFIC OCEAN. IT’S ENTERING AT THREE POINTS. THAT’S A PROBLEM FOR RESIDENTS BECAUSE WHEN THE LAVA HITS THE WATER IT CREATES LAZE OR LAVA HAZE, A MIX OF HAZE AND SHARDS OF GLASS.>>>ENVIRONMENT CANADA CONFIRMED THIS WAS A LAND SPOUT TORNADO. IT WAS 180 KILOMETRES EAST OF REGINA, ONE OF TWO CONFIRMED TORNADOES IN SASKATCHEWAN YESTERDAY. THE OTHER WAS SPOTTED 75 KILOMETRES SOUTHEAST OF REGINA.>>>WHEN IT COMES TO MAJOR COURT CASES, SKETCH ARTISTS TAKE US INSIDE THE COURTROOM FOR A GLIMPSE OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A SUSPECT APPEARS BEFORE A JUDGE. THEY’RE ARTISTS, AFTER ALL, AND SOME TAKE CREATIVE LIBERTIES, SOMETHING MANY POINTED OUT ON-LINE AFTER HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S COURT APPEARANCE. AND THAT’S OUR “MOMENT OF THE DAY.” THE SKETCH ARTIST TOOK A BEATING ON-LINE TODAY. YOU CAN SEE BOTH HAVE VERY DIFFERENT CREATIVE VISIONS OF WHAT WEINSTEIN LOOKED LIKE. MANY THINK THIS LOOKED LIKE BOB NEWHART. OTHERS MOCKED THIS, DEPICTING A POT-BELLIED WEINSTEIN, AS HE WAS HAULED IN IN CUFFS. IF YOU WERE THINKING THAT YOU HAD SEEN A SKETCH LIKE THIS BEFORE, YOU’RE NOT WRONG. JANE ROSENBERG IS THE SAME SKETCH ARTIST THAT SKETCHED TOM BRADY DURING DEFLATE-GATE, WHICH WAS COMPARED FROM E.T. TO GOLLUM.>>IT’S HARD TO GET ACCURATE WHEN YOU WORK SMALL. I DID THE BEST I COULD. I’M UNDER TREMENDOUS DEADLINE PRESSURE. I WORK VERY FAST. I DO IT RIGHT THEN AND THERE. IT’S FOUGHT LIKE I TOOK IT OUT AND FIXED IT UP AND HAD TIME TO COPY IT AND FIX IT.>>Andrew: ROSENBERG IS LONG CONSIDERED ONE OF THE TOP COURTROOM SKETCH ARTISTS IN THE COUNTRY AND SHE HAD A MESSAGE FOR THOSE WOULD-BE ART CRITICS OUT THERE.>>IF SOMEBODY ELSE CAN DO A BETTER JOB, LET’S SEE. GO AHEAD. SHOW ME.>>Andrew: FAIR ENOUGH. ONE MORE BIT OF FOOD FOR THOUGHT. SOME FOLKS HAVE POINTED OUT HOW ODD IT IS THAT THEY HAVE SKETCH ARTISTS IN THE FIRST PLACE IN NEW YORK PARTICULARLY BECAUSE IN THAT STATE CAMERAS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COURTROOM. THAT’S “THE NATIONAL” FOR THIS MAY 25. THANKS FOR JOINING US. HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.
