>>Andrew: HELLO FROM DOWNTOWN TORONTO. EVEN THOUGH THE RAPTS LOST TONIGHT, UNLIKE THE WARRIORS, THEY HAVE TWO CHANCES TO TAKE THE TITLE. NOT WINNING AT HOME, WELL, IT STINGS, ESPECIALLY AFTER THAT INCREDIBLE LATE SURGE BY TORONTO.>>AND THE TORONTO RAPTORS –>>Andrew: AND IT ALL CAME DOWN IN THE END TO ONE POINT, THE RAPTORS DENIED THEIR FIRST CROWN BY A SINGLE POINT BUT TO THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS THAT SINGLE POINT MEANS EVERYTHING. IT MEANS SURVIVAL, ESPECIALLY AFTER THIS LOST THIS MAN, KEVIN DURANT. BUT THE SERIES GOES BACK TO OAKLAND. DAVID COMMON WAS IN JURASSIC PARK ALL NIGHT AND HAS JUST FOLLOWED THE CROWD TO FRONT STREET AND DAVID, BOY, THAT WAS A ROLLERCOASTER RIDE AND IN THE END, IT CAME OFF THE TRACKS FOR THE RAPTORS.>>Reporter: IT DID, A ANDREW. THE CROWDS ARE FILTERING OUT OF JURASSIC PARK JUST DOWN THE BLOCK HEADING HOME AND HEADING HOME AND COULD HAVE BEEN SWELLING THESE STREETS BUT THERE’S STILL TWO MORE CHANCES. PEOPLE KEEP SAYING SIX IN SIX. TORONTO IN GAME SIX. YES, IT WILL BE A ROAD GAME, BUT THAT’S ALL RIGHT. PEOPLE SAYING WE’LL TAKE THE FIGHT TO THEM, NOT UNLIKE WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE BLUE JAYS ALL THOSE YEARS EIGHT WHEN IT WAS AN AWAY GAME. SO SOME ARE MAKING THE CONNECTION. A LOT OF EXCITEMENT ON THE STREETS BUT BOY, OH, BOY, WHEN WE WERE IN JURASSIC PARK, HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO WAITED A LONG TIME TO GET IN LINE,ED IN, DEALT WITH ALL OF THE THE RAIN COMING IN, A BIT OF DISAPPOINTMENT, BUT IT’S NOT ALL DONE. LOOK AT THESE GUYS HAVING A GOOD TIME AND THEY’LL BE BACK, BACK FOR GAME SIX. [ Laughter ]>>Andrew: YOU HAVE TO ADMIT, 6-6 HAS A BETTER RING TO IT. DAVID COMMON, THANKS SO MUCH. THE BATTLE CONTINUES NOW, RIGHT? THIS TIME BACK IN GOLDEN STATE’S TURF. THEY’LL NEED TENACITY AND THEY’LL NEED KYLE LOWRY.>>HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE AN ICON ALL OVER CANADA WITH KIDS?

OFTEN DUE TO HIS LACK-LUSTER PLAYOFF PERFORMANCES, GRITTY, TOUGH AND UNRELENTING ON THE COURT.>>HERE IS KYLE.>>Reporter: LOWRY HAS ALWAYS PLAYED WITH A CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER. STANDING TALL IN THE WAY OF ONCOMING PLAYERS FOR SEVEN SEASONS A RAPTORS’ LEADER OFTEN IN THE BACKGROUND, AND NOW GETTING THE CREDIT THOSE AROUND HIM FELT HE’S ALWAYS DESERVED.>>THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THAT GUY THAT I JUST BELIEVE IN, YOU KNOW, IT’S INCREDIBLE.>>KYLE LOWRY IS THE BEST RAPTOR ON ALL TEAM, BASED ON WHAT HE’S DONE, HE’S THE GUY.>>Reporter: THE GUY FANS HAVE COME TO LOVE.>>I’M HAPPY TO SEE HIM ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THE FINALS.>>Reporter: FINALLY, INDEED, A BASKETBALLER FROM NORTH PHILLY RAISED BY A SINGLE MOTHER NOW ON THE SPORT’S BIGGEST STAGE.>>WHEN MY MOM HAD NO GO THROUGH AND MY GRANDMOTHER HAD TO GO THROUGH SEEING MYSELF, MY BROTHER, MY COUSIN AND MY OTHER LITTLE COUSINS GOING TO WORK AT 5:00 IN THE MORNING, THAT’S PRESSURE TO ME. JUST WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE SURE YOUR KID SEES BETTER THAN WHAT YOU’VE SEEN.>>Reporter: NOW WITH TWO SONS OF HIS OWN, PERSPECTIVE AND GRATITUDE WITH SO MUCH ON THE LINE.>>Andrew: AS THE TEAM PREPARES TO GO BACK TO OAKLAND FOR GAME SIX, LET’S GET A LITTLE ANALYSIS. GREG ROSS HAS BEEN FOLLOWING THE TEAM THOUGHT THE WHOLE CHAMPIONSHIP RUN AND JOINS ME COURTSIDE AND GREG, WHAT DO THEY NEED TO DO ON THURSDAY NIGHT?>>Reporter: YOU’RE BREAKING UP A LITTLE BIT ON ME BUT I’LL GIVE YOU AN ANALYSIS ABOUT THIS GAME. LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW EXCITING THAT KEVIN DURANT WAS BACK IN THE LINE-UP. RAPTORS’ FANS WERE NERVOUS THAT THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS ALL-STAR WAS BACK AND STARTING IN THIS GAME. WHAT A START IT WAS FOR KD. MINE, HHE FINISHED WITH 11 POINTS AND THREE, THREE POINTERS. HE WAS 3-3 FROM BEYOND THE ARC AND THAT HAD POOP WORRIED IN THIS ARENA. THERE WAS AN INCREDIBLE MOMENT WHEN KEVIN DURANT WAS ON THE OTHER END OF THE COAT * COURT. HE WENT DOWN IN PAIN AND THERE WAS A KICK CHEER HERE. SOME JOINED OFF THE BENCH AND CALMED THE CROWD DOWN AND SAID, HEY, THAT’S NOT WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT HERE IN THIS COUNTRY, THIS CITY. EVERYBODY GOT UP AND GAVE KEVIN DURANT A STANDING OVATION AS HE LEFT WITH HELP. AND THEN HE STARTED CHANTING AND IT WAS A CLASSY MOMENT IN THE END FOR THE FANS AT SCOTIABANK TO TREAT AN OPPOSING STAR THE WAY THEY DID AFTER HE LEFT THE COURT INJURED AND LOOKED LIKE THE WARRIORS MIGHT BE IN TROUBLE. THEY MANAGED TO BREAK OUT TO A 14-POINT LEAD ONE THE RAPTORS BATTLED BACK AND THERE WAS A FOURTH QUARTER, THAT KAWHI LEONARD WOULD TAKE OVER THIS GAME. HE WAS SCORING AT WILL AND REBOUNDING AND HE HAD FANS ON THEIR FEET, BUT IT WAS A 9-0 RUN FOR THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS WHERE THEY TOOK THE LEAD AND WOULDN’T LOOK BACK AND MANAGED TO HANG ON WITH A SLIM ONE-POINT VICTORY, 106-105 AND THE RAPTORS DID HAVE THE BALL IN THEIR HAND. KYLE LOWRY WITH A CHANCE FOR A BUZZER BEATER LIKE WE SAW KAWHI LEONARD HIT BUT HE CAME UP SHORT AND NOW THIS IS WHY THEY’RE HEADED TO OAKLAND.>>Andrew: GREG, YOU THINK BACK TO THE LAST FEW GAMES AND HOW IT PANNED OUT. THE TORONTO RAPTORS, THE PLAYERS PLAYERS EXHIBITED SUCH A SE STOICISM AND HOW DO THEY TURN AROUND THE SHIP?>>Reporter: THAT’S THE KAWHI LEONARD EFFECT BUT WHY LEONARD HAD THAT CALMING EFFECT AND WATCHING TODAY IN THE GAME, THERE WEREN’T BIG CELEBRATIONS. THEY’RE BUYING INTO THIS KAWHI LEONARD PLAN. YOU WON’T WIN EVERY GAME BUT YOU HAVE TO COME BACK AND BE READY TO PLAY IN THE NEXT GAME AND THAT NEXT GAME IS COMING UP IN OAKLAND AND THE RAPTORS NEED TO BE READY. THEY DON’T WANT TO ALLOW THE WARRIORS TO EVEN THIS SERIES UP AND SEND IT BACK TO GAME CERTAINLY WHERE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.>>Andrew: GREG ROSS, COURTSIDE IN SCOTIABANK ARENA, THANK YOU. I WANT TO GO BACK. THE HEART OF TORONTO’S DOWNTOWN. I CAN SEE A LOT OF FOLKS CONGREGATING AND WHAT ARE YOU SEEING?>>Reporter: JUST A SECOND AGO BEFORE WE CAME LIVE TO YOU, A GUY SHOWED UP WITH A MICROPHONE AND NOW HE’S CREATING A SONG, A DANCE, CELEBRATING. THERE’S OPTIMISM. IT’S ALMOST AS IF THEY HAD THEM READY TO FOR A WIN BUT NOBODY WANTS TO GO HOME AND THEY’RE GATHERING, HOPING THIS IS IT BUT PEOPLE AREN’T READY TO END THE SHARED EXPERIENCE YET TODAY. IT’S A CHILL CROWD AND WE WERE TOLD EARLIER WE’RE EXPERIENCING A CROWD DYNAMICS. THERE ARE DOZENS OF POLICE OFFICER AND YOU CAN’T SEE THEM NOW, BUT BEHIND OUR CAMERAMAN, THERE ARE DOZENS OF OFFICERS WATCHING AND INTERSECTION OF YONGE AND DUNDAS AND POLICE CRUISERS ARE BLOCKING THAT WAY AND A CITY BUS THAT WAY AND THEY DON’T WANT CREWS COMING THROUGH HERE BUT RIGHT NOW THEY’RE HANGING BACK AND THINGS COULD TURN BUT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE THIS IS A CROWD THAT WILL BE ANGRY AND THERE’S STILL HOPE. THIS IS NOT AN ANGRY CROWD BUT AN OPTIMISTIC ONE. BACK TO YOU BEFORE I LOSE YOU AGAIN.>>Andrew: NICE TO GET THAT REALITY CHECK ON THE GROUND. SO WE ARE GOING TO HAVE MORE RAPTORS’ COVERAGE AHEAD IN THE HOUR AND WE’LL SAY IT, THERE’S STILL A GAME SIX.>>Ian: LET’S START IN HONG KONG FACING THE MOST SERIOUS POLITICAL CRISIS SINCE THE HAND-OVER MORE THAN TWO DECADES AGO. PROTESTERS THERE CLOGGING THE STREETS IF A SHOW OF DEFIANCE AGAINST A NEW LAW THAT COULD FORCE ANYONE TO BE SENT SENT TO MAINLAND CHINA IF THEY’RE ACCUSED OF A CRIME BY BEIJING.

AID WORKER, LATER THE FOUNDER, PETER DAGLISH WON AWARDS SO HIS ARREST STUNNED THE COMMUNITY AND THOSE WHO KNEW HIM WOULDN’T BELIEVE A LOVING FATHER SO DEVOTED TO HELPING CHILDREN COULD HURT THEM.>>IT’S SO NOT PETER AND SO AGAINST HIS VALUES, EVERYTHING.

THIS SHOWS HOUSES METRES FROM HOMES SMOKING AND SMOKING PEOPLE. ALL OF THE SMOKE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO MY HOUSE SAYS THIS RESIDENT. COAL CAN SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST. WE CHOSE CANADA, SAID ANOTHER WOMAN, BECAUSE IT’S SIMILAR TO OUR SIG SIBERIA WITH COLD AND SNOW. IN WINTER, IF ANYTHING, CONDITIONS ARE WORSE AND SOCIAL MEDIA SHOWS THESE SCENES FROM FEBRUARY WITH A REGION BLANKETED WITH COAL DUST. YOU THINK YOU’RE LETTING YOUR CHILDREN PLAY IN THE FRESH AIR AND YOU WONDER WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THEY BREATHE IT IN. THEY BLAME THAT ON FAULTY EQUIPMENT AT A NEARBY PROCESSING PLANT BUT RESIDENTS SAY THE DISCHARGES HAPPEN ALL OF THE TIME AND FINALLY, AN EXTREMELY RARE PERSONAL ATTACK ON VLADIMIR PUTIN HIMSELF, THEY ACCUSED HIM OF TURNING THEIR COMMUNITIES INTO GAS CHAMBERS. BEFORE ONE BY ONE GOING BEFORE THE CAMERA, SIGNING OFF THEIR STATEMENT WITH THEIR NAMES. HOWEVER, EMPASSIONED THEIR PLEA, CANADIAN LAW MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO USE POLLUTION AS A CLAIM TO CALM COME TO CANADCOME TO CANADA AS A REFU

YOU THROW IT LIKE THAT, YOU GIVE THEM THAT MANY THREES, THEY’LL MAKE SOME. WE LET THEM GET TOO MANY THREES. THANK YOU.>>Andrew: OK, NOW CBC WATCHED IT GO DOWN FROM UNDERSTAND SCOTIABANK ARENA AND HE JOINS US NOW COURTSIDE. YOU CAN HIRE HE WAS REACTING, HOW SUBDUED KYL KYLE LOWRY WAS THERE AND THIS WAS HEART BREAKING FOR THE TEAM.>>Reporter: WHAT WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT, THIS IS DEVASTATING. THIS POISE AND TEAM THEY’VE SHOWN IS SOMETHING EVERYBODY POINTS TO. NOBODY SAID THIS WOULD BE EASY. IN FACT, IT WAS INTERESTING TO LISTEN TO RAPTORS’ COACH, NICK NURSE, BEFORE KYLE LOWRY SAY, LOOK, WE KNEW THIS WASN’T GOING TO BE EASY OR A QUICK SERIES AND LOOK, IF YOU WOULD HAVE TOLD US WE WOULD HAVE BEEN UP 3-2, FIVE GAMES INTO THE SERIES, WE WOULD HAVE TAKEN THAT. THE WHOLE MOTTO HAS BEEN CALM, POISED, TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS AND THEY’RE NOT ABOUT TO PANIC. YES, THEY’RE GOING BACK TO ORACLE ARENA, A PLACE TEAMS HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME WINNING AT THIS POINT IN THE SEASON BUT THEY’RE RETURNING FROM OAKLAND HAVING STOLEN TWO GAMES INTO THE HOLLOWED GROUNDS. SO NOW WE GO BACK TO OAKLAND, HEART BREAK FOR A FAN BASE THOUGHING TO BE CELEBRATING BUT THIS TEAM WON’T BE PANICKING. THEY KNOW HAVE TO GET BACK TO WORK AND THE CHAMPIONS ARE STILL ALIVE.>>Andrew: YOU TALK ABOUT THE POISE, THE STOICISM THAT THEY’VE EXHIBITED AND TALK TO ME ABOUT WHAT THEY REALLY NEED TO BRING TO OAKLAND ON THURSDAY TO TURN THINGS AROUND?>>Reporter: I MEAN, GOING INTO OAKLAND, I THINK EVERY FAN, EVERY COMMENTATOR AND PUNDIT WAS SAYING IF THE RAPTORS CAN GO INTO ORACLE ARENA AND GET A SPLIT, WIN ONE GAME ON THE ROAD, THINGS WOULD BE GOOD. THE RAPTORS WERE DOMINANT AND THIRD AND FOURTH QUARTER, THE RAPTORS RAN AWAY AND SEEMED UNSHAKEABLE IN THAT HOSTILE TERRITORY. THE FANS WERE STUNNED AND DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO THEIR MIGHTY WARRIORS. THIS TEAM BACK-TO-BACK DEFENDING CHAMPIONS. THEY WON’T GO QUIETLY AND IT’S INTERESTING BECAUSE STEVE KERR, THE WARRIOR’S HEAD COACH, HE SAID ALL YOU NEED IN A SERIES HIKE THILIKE THIS IS A SPARK. YOU JUST NEED MANAGE TO BELIEVE. WELL, THEY GOT THAT SPARK. IN THESE SERIES, THE MOMENTUM SWINGS BACK AND FORTH AND THE RAPTORS HAD ALL THE MOMENTUM GOING INTO TONIGHT’S GAME AND NOW THE WARRIORS HAVE THE MOMENTUM. THIS HAS BEEN A TEAM THOUGHT THE ENTIRE SEASON, THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PLAYOFF RUN THAT HAS BEEN TOLD THEY’RE PROBABLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO WIN. GOING INTO THIS SEASON, NOBODY HAD THIS TEAM WINNING AND NOW THEY’RE UP 3-1 AND IT’S GOING TO BE A LONG, LONG ROAD FROM HERE ON OUT FOR THE RAPTORS. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS WIN ONE MORE GAME. YOU HAVE A SHOT IN OAKLAND. IF YOU DON’T GET THAT ONE, RIGHT BACK HERE AT SCOTIABANK ARENA, THERE’S A LOT MORE BASKETBALL TO BE PLAYED.>>Andrew: RIGHT, EXCEPT, YOU TALK ABOUT THE WARRIORS NOT GOING QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT. KEVIN DURANT, RIGHT, HE STARTED COMING OFF AN INJURY AND ANOTHER, SORT OF AGGRAVATING THE INJURY BEFORE HALF-TIME. HE’S OUT FOR THE REST OF THE GAME AND SHOULD WE EXPECT TO SEE HIM IN GAME SIX?>>Reporter: I MEAN, THIS IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING WE’LL BE TALKING ABOUT UNTIL TIP-OFF THURSDAY NIGHT. WILL KEVIN DURANT RETURN? THAT WAS THE DOMINATING QUESTION. I DON’T THINK WE’LL SEE HIM BACK IN THE SERIES. THE WAY HE HOBBLED OFF, OF COURSE, IN CRUTCHES, OUT OF THE ARENA. WE’LL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS UNTIL TIP-OFF, BUT THESE WARRIORS HAVE A SPARK AND WON WITHOUT DURANT AND THEY BELIEVE AGAIN AND NOW OVER TO YOU, TORONTO RAPTORS.>>Andrew: THANK YOU. ASHA TOMLINSON IS STANDING BY WHERE FANS ARE DIGESTING THE DEFEAT BUT FAR FROM DEFEATED.>>Reporter: IT’S A SAD SCENE HERE AT JURASSIC PARK WEST. ALL OF THE FANS HAVE CLEARED OUT. THERE’S A LOT OF DISAPPOINTMENT IN THE AIR AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE VERY SAD BUT FEW FANS LINGERING HERE, STILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF HOPE FOR THE TORONTO RAPTORS. CAN YOU TAKE ME THROUGH WHAT YOU WERE FEELING IN THOSE LAST SECONDS AND THE FACT THE RAPTORS COULDN’T CLOSE IT OUT IN.>>THE EMOTIONS ARE RUNNING HIGH. WE THOUGHT SIX POINTS UP, WE’RE GOING IN AND THE CITY IS GOING TO GO WILD. WE’RE HEART-BROKEN BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, THIS IS OUR TEAM. TWHEN WE LOST TO MILWAUKEE, TO PHILLY GAME CERTAINLY AND NOW WE’RE PLAYING THE WARRIORS. BEST TEAM IN THE WORLD AND BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. WE, THE NORTH! WE, THE NORTH!>>Reporter: IT DOESN’T MATTER THEY LOST GAME FIVE. THERE’S ARE TWO MORE CHANCES TO CLENCH THE NBA TITLE.>>Andrew: IF THAT’S NOT RESILIENCE, I DON’T THOUGH WHAT IS. LET’S GO FARTHER WEST. BONNIE ALLEN HAD AT A CHANCE TO WATCH THE GAME WITH RAPTORS’ FANS IN REGINA.>>Reporter: NOWS OF FANS ARE STREAMING OUT OF MOSAIC STADIUM. CERTAINLY TONIGHT, THIS WAS JURASSIC PARK, THOUSAND OF PEOPLE WERE IN THERE AND WHAT WAS IT LIKE FOR YOU TO BE IN THERE WITH SO MANY RAPTORS’ FANS?>>IT WAS HECTIC, CRAZY.>>I’M SO DISAPPOINTED.>>WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT WAS AWESOME IN.>>LOUD, AND HAD A GOOD TIME.>>Reporter: WERE YOU SURPRISE FLOOD WERE SO MANY RAPTORS’ FANS?>>I WAS SURPRISED. THERE WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE HERE TONIGHT.>>Reporter: DESCRIBE THE FINAL LAST SECONDS.>>WE’RE COMING BACK.>>Reporter: LET’S DO THE CHEER, GUY. WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN IN GAME SIX?>>RAPTORS!>>Reporter: REGINA FANS BIG RAPTORS’ FAN AND THEY’RE TAKIN’ IT IN GAME SIX.>>Andrew: SO LET’S LOOK AHEAD TO GAME SIX. THE RAPTORS WILL BE COUNTING ON KAWHI LEONARD AND YOU JUST CAN’T OVERSTATE WHAT A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT, EXPLOSIVE FORCE HE’S BEEN FOR THIS HISTORIC RAPTORS’ RUN BUT HE’S A HOT PROSPECTS FOR OTHER TEAMS. THIS MER, LEONARD CAN LEAVE TORONTO AND BECOME A FREE AGENT. SO WE WANT TO SHOW YOU LEONARD’S OTHER FAN BASE AND HOMETOWN NEAR L.A. TO FIND OUT WHERE HIS LOYALTIES MAY REALLY LIE.>>Reporter: THE FIRST DAY OF BASKETBALL SUMMER CAMP AT MARTIN MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. HIGH SCHOOL IN RIVERSIDE. OF COURSE, THERE’S TALENT TALENT HERE BUT THE NEXT KAWHI LEONARD, WELL, THAT’S A LONG-SHOT. JEFF DIETZ KNOWS COACHING AN ATHLETE LIKE THAT HAPPENS ONCE IN A LIFETIME.>>I FEEL LUCKY TO BE A PART OF IT.>>Reporter: DIETZ COULDN’T HAVE GUESSED HIS STUDENT WOULD BE ONE OF THE TOP PLAYERS IN THE NBA BUT KNEW LEONARD WOULD BE A SPECIAL PLAYER BECAUSE HIS POSITION ON THE COURT WAS ALL OF THEM.>>WHEN YOU PUT A KID ON A HIGH SCHOOL BECAUSE COURT THAT CAN SCORE FROM ALL FIVE POSITIONS, WHO CAN DEFEND ALL FIVE POSITION, AS A COACH, YOU KIND OF JUST NEED TO GET OUT OF THE WAY.>>Reporter: KENNETH CLAYTON’S BROTHER PLAYED ON THIS COURT AND TOLD HIM ALL ABOUT HIS LEGEND’S WORK ETHIC.>>FROM ANYWHERE AND ANYPLACE ANYONE CAN GET BETTER.>>Reporter: EVERYONE IS CHEERING FOR A TEAM BASED IN A ANOTHER COUNTRY.>>WE WANT HIM TO KNOW THAT THE SECOND BIGGEST FAN BASE OF THE TORONTO RAPTORS ARE IN RIVERSIDE.>>Reporter: BUT FOR HOW MUCH LONGER? WITH LEONARD SET TO BE A FREE AGENT, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IS HOPING THEY WILL JOIN THIS PAN PANTHEON OF PLAYERS.>>DO YOU THINK HE’LL PLAY IN THE STADIUM BEHIND YOU?>>COMING BACK HOME TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, THAT’S A POWERFUL LURE, BUT YOU GET BACK HOME AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, YOU HAVE ALL OF USE FRIENDS BUGGIN’ YOU FOR TICK AN TICKETS. BUT MY HUNCH IS HE WILL STAY IN TORONTO.>>Reporter: MAURICE JONES WOULD BE FINE WITH THAT.>>THAT’S VERY UN-SELF-ISH OF YOU. IF YOU’RE WINNING TITLES, JUST STAY OVER THERE. KAWHI LEONARD ON THREE?>>Andrew: OK, AND IS THERE ANY QUESTION WHAT TONIGHT’S “MOMENT” MIGHT BE ABOUT? WE’LL BE BACK LATER FROM OUTSIDE OF JURASSIC PARK.>>Ian: FIRST, WE’LL BE BACK WITH MORE NEWS INCLUDING THIS.>>WE DETECT AD DETECTED A DRONE.>>Ian: A LOOK AT HOW CORRECTION’S CANADA IS>>Ian: WE’RE CONTINUING LIVE ON THE PACIFIC EDITION OF “THE NATIONAL.” ANDREW SCHEER WEIGHED IN ON THE TERM GENOCIDE FROM THE MISSING, MURDERED AND INDIGENOUS GIRL’S INQUIRY? EVERY SINGLE LIFE LOST IS A TRAGEDY AND I THINK THIS IS ITS ONLY THING AND ITS OWN TRAGEDY AROUND DOES NOT FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY OF GENOCIDE.>>Ian: THE FINAL REPORT WAS RELEASED LAST WEEK AND THE COMMISSIONERS CONCLUDED THIS CONSTITUTES A GENOCIDE. TODAY ON CBC RADIO, PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU SAID HE BELIEVES CULTURAL GENOCIDE WOULD BE A MORE APPROPRIATE TERM.>>>WHALES AND DOLPHINS CAN TO LONGER BE HELD IN CAPTIVITY IN CANADA. THE AQUARIUM HAS ONE DOLPHIN LEFT BUT MARINELAND HAS MORE THAN 50 BELUGA WHALES ITS FACILITY.>>>CANADA HAD A WIN IF FIFA. THE TEAM TO TAKE A 1-0 WIN OVER CAMEROON. CANADA FACES NEW ZEALAND NEXTON SATURDAY.>>>CORRECTION’S CANADA IS FACING A GROWING THREAT FROM DRONES. THEY’RE USED TO SMUGGLE GOODS INSIDE PRISON WALLS AND OTTAWA IS SPENDING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON WHAT’S TO CATCH THEM IN THE ACT.>>Reporter: PETER JONES BUILDS PORTABLE COMPARE THAT IDENTIFIES DRONES.>>THERE, WE JUST DETENTED A DRONE ANNUAL IT’ AND IT’S CLOSE BY.>>Reporter: THEY HOPE TO USE SIMILAR TECHNOLOGY TO TOP SNEAKING CONTRABAND INTO PRISONS. THE PILOT PROJECT WILL START NEXT YEAR AND FINISH BY 2023. THERE’S BEEN INSTANCES WHERE WE’VE RECOVERED THE DEVICE.>>Reporter: SINCE 2015 DRONE SIGHTINGS HAVE INCREASED AT PENITENTIARIES. THE AERIAL VICTORIES DROP CELL PHONES, DRUG AND OTHER ILLICIT SUBSTANCES. THE CONCERN IS THAT MORE LETHAL SUBSTANCES COULD BE ON THE WAY. LAST YEAR, A DRONE ARMED WITH EXPLOSIVES DETONATED AT A RALLY VENEZUELA PRESIDENT NICOLÁS MADURO ATTENDED. THE FUTURE THREAT IS WHAT DENIES DRONES.>>TECHNOLOGY IS INCREASING AND WEAPONS WOULD BE INTRODUCED.>>Reporter: CONNECTION’S CANADA CAN DETECT THE PRESENCE OF DRONES IN AND NEAR FACILITIES, BUT STOPPING THE DRONES BEFORE THEY DROP OFF THEIR CONTRABAND, THAT RAISES SAFETY CONCERNS.>>I’M NOT SURE WHERE THE DRONE WILL FALL AND THAT’S A CONCERN. IT’S OK IF IT FALLS ON OUR GROUNDS BUT IF IT FALLS OUTSIDE AND HURTS SOMEBODY, THAT’S NOT SOMETHING WE WANT TO GET INTO.>>Reporter: KNOWING THAT CRIMINALLED PEOPLE WILL FINE A WAY AROUND THAT, CONNECTION’S CANADA’S STRATEGY WILL NEED TO KEEP EVOLVING.>>Ian: THE “MOMENT” IS UP NEXT ON THE NATIONAL. [“OH CANADA”].>>Ian: TONIGHT INTO MOMENT FOUR AND FROM THE FANS FROM CBC SCOTIABANK TO JURASSIC PARK BUT FIRST, IN CASE YOU MISSED IT THE ACTOR BEST KNOWN FOR PORTRAYING JACK BAUER STARTED A TWITTER WAR WITH THE GOVERNMENT. IT STARTED LIKE THIS, AFTER AN AMBITIOUS YEAR OF COST-SAVING MEASURES AND CUTBACKS, DOUG FORD’S DEPOSIT I GOVERNMENT IS COMPARING ITSELF TO TOMMY DOUGLAS, CONSIDERED THE FATHER OF UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE AND ALSO CV SUTHEKEEFER SUFFERERLAND’S GRAPH. GRANDFATHER. YOUR LUCKY MY MOM IS NOT ACTIVE ON TWITTER AND ON TWITTER, POP CULTURE IS POWER.>>DON’T EXPECT ME TO REGRET THE DECISIONS I HAVE MADE.>>Ian: IF YOU THINK TACKING THE DEFICIT IS HARD, TRY GOING UP AGAINST AN ACTION STAR, DEFENDING HI>>Andrew: MAYBE THEY DIDN’T PULL OUT A WIN BUT THE WAR IS NOT OVER FOR RAPTS’ FANS. IF WE COULD, LET’S REWIND TO THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME SINGING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. YOU MAY SAY IT WAS A TEAM EFFORT AND BOY, OH, BOY, DID THE FANS DELIVER. FANS SANG LOUD AND PROUD AND THEIR ANTHEM IS OUR “MOMENT” [“OH CANADA”].>>Andrew: SO I’LL STATE THE OBVIOUS, THIS WAS NOT THE OUTCOME RAPTS’ FANS WANTED TONIGHT. JUST SLIPPING FROM THEIR HAND AND A ONE-POINT GAME. I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT. ONE THING I’LL POINT OUT, IN THE DISTANCE, I CAN SEE A SMALL BRASS BAND, FIVE OR SIX PEOPLE BELTING OUT THE TUNES AND WHILE MOST OF THE PEOPLE ARE HEADING HOME, THEY SAID ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, THERE IS A NICE SIZED CROWD, LOOKING FOR HOPE AND KNOWING HOPE IS STILL ALIVE. THERE IS A GAME SIX COMING THEIR WAY DOWN THE PIKE AND THE HOPE OF MAKING HISTORY IS STILL THERE.>>Ian: ANDREW, IF SOMEBODY HAD SAID THREE MONTHS AGO OR ONE MONTH AGO, THE TORONTO RAPTORS WOULD BE UP IN THE FINE NBA CHAMPIONSHIP 3-2, SOME WOULD HAVE SAID THAT’S A DREAM AND NOT POSSIBLE. EVEN WITH THE LOSS, OBVIOUSLY THAT’S WHERE THEY ARE NOW. IT WAS A FANTASTIC GAME WITH A DISAPPOINTING FINISH AND ONE MORE CHANCE TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP THAT HAD PEOPLE UP ON THEIR FEETS. THAT IS “THE NATIONAL” FOR JUNE 10th. WHAT A DAY IT’S BEEN. GOOD NIGHT.>>Andrew: GOOD NIGHT.
