ALL OF THIS HAPPENED IN THE HEART OF CHRISTCHURCH, THE FIRST ATTACK AT THE AL NOOR MOSQUE. THE MAIN SUSPECT WAS ARRESTED CLOSE BY AND POLICE LATER RAIDED HIS HOME 350 KILOMETERS SOUTH.

AS FOR THE MILITARY STYLE SEMIAUTOMATIC WEAPONS, THEY REQUIRE A SPECIAL LICENSE APPROVED THROUGH POLICE. THEY MUST BE REGISTER AND CAN ONLY BE PURCHASED ONE AT TIME.

driving a snowplough, or an emergency vehicle, you weren’t driving at all
in Buffalo, New York, today. The city was hit by one of the
worst snowstorms in decades. Officials banned all
non-emergency traffic. Almost everything was closed. We’ve been stuck here
since Saturday. We were supposed to go back
to L.A. on Saturday morning. Reporter: The snowstorm
brought life across much of the U.S. Midwest
to a halt. I’ve got a
four-wheel drive car. It’s kind of hard to get
out of snow banks. Reporter: For a while,
at Chicago’s O’Hare airport, the busiest in the world, it was nothing in,
nothing out. The storm also swept through
much of southern Ontario, dumping 20-40cm of snow, with Toronto and Ottawa
being the hardest hit. Both cities declared
snow emergencies. The first for Toronto
in 16 years. And it wasn’t only people
outside who were stuck, tonight, thousands continue
to be stranded at Toronto’s
Pearson airport. Many are spending their
third day and night waiting for
a flight out. It’s confusion, totally. Yeah, it’s —
it’s complete chaos. Nobody can help,
nobody knows anything. [shouting directions] Reporter: Some people tried
to help, tried to keep calm, but as the line-ups
and the waiting grew, so did the frustration. I don’t know where to go. They’re not telling me. They’re
shifting me from line to line. Air Canada is pathetic. Look, there’s no organization to
what they’re trying to do here. People have been waiting. They don’t give
them any information as to what’s going on. They just sit here and wait,
you know, like bump on a log. Right to the back of the line. Reporter: Officials
took the unusual step of bringing extra police
in to the airport to maintain crowd control. There’s only one line. [shouting loudly] [wind howling] Reporter:
Air Canada’s answer: don’t blame us,
blame the weather. A number of our aircraft were parked at Pearson
over the weekend outdoors, and have frozen. So we’re in the process
of thawing them out. A lot of the equipment
at Pearson is snowed under. Reporter: Eventually, people,
and luggage began to move. ♪ ♪>>MOURNERS WERE CONSUME BID GRIEF TODAY AS THEY VISITED THE CRASH SITE OF ETHIOPIA AIRLINE’S FLIGHT 302 WHERE 157 PASSENGERS AND CREW WERE KILLED.

and party officials met this morning Liberal Representative
Keith Davey said his party still won’t accept
the proposed TV debate between Clark, Trudeau,
and Broadbent. The networks are insisting
the program use the same format as last year’s TV debate that attracted a phenomenal
seven million viewers. The Conservatives and NDP have
accepted those conditions, but the Liberals are objecting,
particularly to the use again of network journalists
on the program. And rather than having
the election issues debated by just the leaders, the Liberals are sticking
to their demand for a series of debates between
party frontbenchers. Their stonewalling brought
an angry response today from the Conservatives
and NDP. It’s very obvious, ladies and
gentlemen, that Mr. Trudeau has made a travesty
of these meetings. That gentleman had no
intention whatsoever of taking part
in any debates. And his instructions were to get
them off the rails at any cost. And that’s what’s happened. Astonishing as it may seem,
gentlemen, the Liberal party seems afraid
to present their leader to the Canadian public
in a debate. Reporter: But Senator Davey
hinted the Liberals might not bow out
of the leaders debate, that today’s Liberal rejection
of the network proposal may not be final. The network proposal
is still on the table and we are still seeking ways
of expanding the format and opening up the debate
process for a wider discussion of issues. Halton: Network officials,
though, said they aren’t prepared to meet
Davey’s demands, and they’ve given the Liberals
until next Friday to change their mind. The hassle over the issue is an
ironic reversal of last year’s situation when the Tories
objected to the leaders debate then decided it would be
too politically damaging for Clark not to take part. This time it’s the Liberals
who don’t want the spotlight on Pierre Trudeau. But unless they
change their mind, Trudeau could well be branded
for the rest of this campaign as the leader
who chickened out. David Halton,
CBC News, Ottawa. Mark Phillips: Joe Clark’s
campaign has taken on something of a standup
comic tone lately. While he’s been trying out
lines about Pierre Trudeau since the beginning
of the race, it’s only in the past few days
that he’s been given both the material and the large
Tory crowds to work with. I can’t think of any other
leader in any other country anywhere in the world who has ever run for
office on the slogan, “elect me and I’ll quit”. Reporter: Clark’s one-liners
touch all subjects, like Trudeau’s infrequent
campaign appearances. The Liberal party has launched
a peekaboo campaign. [audience laughter] They let Pierre Trudeau
out for an hour each day and hope nobody
will notice him. Reporter: And Trudeau’s style. Last year in May, remember
he was the gunslinger. He was going around looking
for somebody to shoot at. Now he’s got a new mask. This year he’s the fugitive. Reporter: The partisan crowds
do love it, and so does Clark. So much so that when his campaign moved in to
Ontario today, the routine was enshrined
as a standard feature. The crowd in Sarnia had to wait
to hear about energy policy so Clark could fire
a few more rounds. They know that they were more popular when
they had nobody leading them than they are when they have Pierre Elliott Trudeau
leading them. Reporter: The Tories
realize, though, that well-received jokes
at rallies don’t guarantee success
on voting day, just as Pierre Trudeau’s
Joe Clark jokes didn’t help his
cause last May. One of the more remarkable
features of this campaign has been how the leaders
of the two major parties have virtually
reversed their roles, whereas last spring it was Joe
Clark running the safe campaign and Pierre Trudeau
doing the ridiculing, this time the opposite is true. It all seems to indicate
that electoral strategies have much less to do
with party philosophies and political personalities than they do with who’s ahead
or behind in the Gallup poll. Mark Phillips,

WHAT THAT HAS TOLD YOU ABOUT WHO HE IS AND I GUESS HOW YOU WOULD CHARACTERIZE WHITE-WING EXTREMISM AND THE MOVEMENT HE SEEMS TO BE A PART OF. I’LL START WITH YOU KATHLEEN.>>SO IMMEDIATELY, THE MANIFESTO AND THE WORDS THIS PERSON WROTE ON MAGAZINES AND GUN STOCKS POINT TO A DEEP AFFILIATION TO THE WHITE POWER MOVEMENT WHICH IS A BROAD-BASED SOCIAL MOVEMENT IN THE UNITED STATES AND BEYOND THAT COHERED AFTER THE VIETNAM WAR SWELLED IN THE 1980S AND INCLUDING THE OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING AND SEVERAL OTHER ACTS IN THE RECENT PAST HERE. WHAT WE SEE FROM THIS IS RENEWED AFILMATION THIS IS A TRANS NATIONAL MOVEMENT AND WE NEED TO BE THINKING ABOUT THE ACTS OF VIOLENCE AS INTERCONNECTED, PARTICULARLY WE’VE SEEN THREE ATTEMPTED ATTACKS EVEN IN THE LAST SIX MONTHS.>>I’M USING THESE WORDS WHITE SUPREMACY AND WHITE WING BUT FUNDAMENTALLY THE SHOOTER IS A TORONTOIS SO WHAT STOOD OUT ABOUT WHO HE IS AND WHAT IDEOLOGY, IF WE CAN CALL IT THAT?>>IT WAS STRONG COHERENT CONNECTION TO RIGHT-WING EXTREMISM, WHITE SUPREMACY. IN THE MANIFESTO HE REFERENCES THE WORDS, AND I THINK THOSE ASPECTS WHERE YOU SEE THE NARRATIVE DIRECT AND SPECIFIC IN TERMS OF LANGUAGE USED. WHAT STRUCK ME THE MOST WAS JUST THE WAY IT WAS WRITTEN AND CLEARLY, THE STYLE WAS MEANT TO EVOKE SOME KIND OF AN EMOTION FROM FOLKS READING IT TO TRY TO DO SOME SIMILAR AND HIM A MODEL OF WHAT YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO DO TO WHAT HE WANTED TO ESSENTIALLY DO TO REVERSE WHAT HE’S SEEING AN AN INFESTATION OF IMMIGRANTS.>>I GUESS THAT MANIFESTO WAS SUPPOSED TO MISLEAD PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE A STRONG CONNECTION TO THE UNDERGROUND FORUM OR TO ANY OF THE IDEAS THAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT.>>HE CLEARLY WANTED MAXIMUM EXPOSURE AND HE WANTED MAXIMUM VIRALATY. SO WHILE LEGITIMATELY EXPLAINING SOME OF HIS WORLD VIEW AND DRIVEN BY FEARS ABOUT MUSLIMS AND SO-CALLED GREAT REPLACEMENT, MUSLIMS TAKING OVER COUNTRIES, HE PLACES A LANDMINE ABOUT ONLINE REFERENCES AND MEMES IN A WAY TROLLING. SO IT’S IMPORTANT AS WE COME TO GRIPS WITH WHAT’S HAPPENED HERE, WE ARE MINDFUL OF THE MESSAGES AROUND THIS. YOU KNOW, THIS WAS LIVESTREAMED ON FACEBOOK. HE LEFT BREAD CRUMBS ON VERY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS. IT’S CLEAR THAT HE WANTED AS MUCH ATTENTION AS POSSIBLE AND UNFORTUNATELY, WE DO HAVE TO TALK ABOUT IT AND WE HAVE TO ADDRESS IT, BUT I THINK WE HAVE TO BE MINDFUL HOW WE DO IT AND NOT FOLLOW THE NARRATIVE HE WAS HOPING FOR.>>KATHLEEN, DOES THAT SURPRISE YOU THE WAY THIS WAS ORCHESTRATED IN THE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA, THE WAY HE SEEMED TO COORDINATE THE PHYSICAL ATTACK WITH WHAT HAS HAPPENING ONLINE?>>I THINK THE NEW PART HERE IS THE VIRAL VIDEO ELEMENT OF IT, THE LIVESTREAMING. BUT NO, THIS IS A MOVEMENT THAT HAS BEEN USING SOCIAL MEDIA ORGANIZING AND USING THE INTERNET AND PROTO-INTERNET SINCE THE EARLY 1980S. THE WHITE POWER MOVEMENT WENT ONLINE WITH CODE WORD ACCESS BOARDS IN 8/3/84 WITH LIBERTY NET AND THIS WAS LONG BEFORE FACEBOOK AND MANY GENERATIONS INTO THIS AS A STRATEGY FOR THEIR ACTIVIST.>>GETTING THE FACT THAT THE SHATTER OR THE OTHER TWO PEOPLE DETAINED WERE NOT ON ANY SECURITY WATCH LIST WANT WHAT DOES THAT TELL US ABOUT THE ABILITY TO MONITOR THAT KIND OF TALK ONLINE?>>THERE’S DEFINITELY A HUGE GAP IN TERMS OF THE OVERWHELMING INFORMATION THAT HAS TO BE SIFTED THROUGH.

THE BIGGEST PIECE OF MONITORING, FOR EVERY ONE GROUP YOU MIGHT BE AWARE OF, THERE ARE SO MANY COVERT WAYS THESE MESSAGES CAN SAFETY THROUGH THAT IT’S DIFFICULT TO DO IT FROM A MANAGEABLE WAY. THE OTHER PIECE REFLECTS IN TERMS OF WHERE THE FOCUS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, GOVERNMENT ENTITIES HAVE BEEN, ECHOING A COMMENT EARLIER, WE HAVE SEEN GROUPS ACTIVE IN THE ’80S AND THEN THE’S 90S BUT A SENSE OF ORGANIZATION, ESPECIALLY IN THE CANADIAN CONTEXT OCCURRED WHERE THEY FELL OFF THE RADAR FOR DIFFERENT LEVELS OF NATIONAL SECURITY ORGANIZATIONS. AS A RESULT, THEY’VE BEEN ABLE TO GO UNDER THE RADAR OVER THE LAST NUMBER OF YEARS, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THE FOLKS HAVE BEEN SO MUCH ON A POST 9-1-1 CLIMATE.>>ISMEL, SPEAK TO THAT AS WELL, YES, YOU EXPECT SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS TO SHUT THESE THINGS DOWN BUT ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO BE DOING THE WORK OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, I GUESS?>>WELL, IT’S NOT JUST THAT THEY’RE TASKED WITH ESSENTIALLY LAW ENFORCEMENT DUTIES. THEY’RE NOT EVEN DOING THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA DUTIES IN MANY CASES. THEY OFTEN UNDERSTAFF THESE KINDS OFMONITORING DEPARTMENTS AND DEPARTMENTS IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES WHERE THEY’RE NOT EVEN SPEAKING THE NATIVE LANGUAGE OF THESE POSTS. OFTEN COMPANIES LIKE TWITTER AND FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE WHERE THIS EXTREMIST SPREADS RELY ON JOURNALISTS AND RESEARCHERS TO FLAG THIS STUFF AND SAY, THIS IS REALLY SERIOUS AND ONLY THEN WILL THEY SOMETIMES, YOU KNOW, MODERATE AND BAN AND TAKE THE ACTION THAT HOPEFULLY THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN PROACTIVELY.>>SO LET ME DO ONE QUICK GO-AROUND FOR EVERYBODY ON THIS. WHAT DOES THIS ATTACK, THAT DOES SEEM DIFFERENT IN NATURE BECAUSE OF THIS SOCIAL MEDIA ELEMENT, IS THERE ALREADY SOMETHING THAT YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT IN TERMS OF THINGS THAT COULD BE DONE DIFFERENTLY, LESSONS WE SHOULD TAKE FROM THIS OR SOMETHING THAT’S MISSING IN TERMS OF THIS CONVERSATION ALREADY? KATHLEEN?>>YEAH, THE REALLY BIG ONE IS THAT WE HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THIS NOT AS A LONE WOLF ACTION OR ONE PERSON IN ANY SENSE. THIS IS PART OF A COHERENT SOCIAL MEDIA MOVEMENT WITH A ACOHERENT IDEOLOGY AND THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF WAYS THAT HISTORY CAN INFORM THAT WE MIGHT DIFFERENTLY STRUCTURE THINKING ABOUT IT. ONE IS ABOUT CONNECTING THE TREE OF LIFE SYNAGOG SHOOTING WITH THIS ATTACK IN NEW ZEALAND AND THE ATTACK IN SOUTH CAROLINA PERPETRATED BY DYLAN ROOF A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO. WE’VE SEEN A LOT OF COVERAGE WHERE EVENTS ARE BROKEN UP ONE FROM THE NEXT AND WE THINK ABOUT THEM AS ANTI-SEMITISM THERE AND ALL OF THEM ARE MOTIVATED BY THE SAME IDEOLOGY AND WE HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THIS AS PART OF A COHERENT SOCIAL MOVEMENT, AS MUCH AS THIS MOVEMENT ATTEMPTS TO ENGINEER ITS OWN APPEARANCE, WE MAY THINK ABOUT IT THIS WAY.>>ISHMEL?>>WE LOOK AT THIS AS INDIVIDUAL ACTS HAVING A SYSTEMIC PERSPECTIVE. HOW MANY MORE EXAMPLES AND ONE MORE IN TERMS OF KATHLEEN’S EXAMPLES, WE HAD ONE IN CANADA AND HOW MANY MORE DO WE NEED TO HAVE UNTIL WE TAKE THE ASPECT OF INHERENT AND INGRAINED LAYERS OF DISCRIMINATION AND CONTEXT OF ISLAMAPHOBIA THAT IS IMPACTING A LOT OF DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES BEING FUELED I BY SIMILAR HATRED.>>THERE IS THE SOCIAL MEDIA ANGLE BUT THE OTHER PANELISTS, THIS IS LINKING IT TO ALEXANDRE BISSONETTE IN QUEBEC AND TWO MASSACRES THAT, IN FACT, THE SUSPECT HERE REFERENCED EXPLICITLY. SO IT IS CONNECTED TO ALL OF THOSE THINGS BUT I THINK THE SOCIAL MEDIA MEDIA ANGLE AND THE MANIFESTO IS IMPORTANT TO TAKE NOTE OF BECAUSE IT SPEAKS TO THE KIND OF ONLINE RADICALIZATION THAT HAPPENS ON THE FAR RIGHT. THIS LANGUAGE ABOUT POPULATION REPLACEMENT, SO-CALLED WHITE GENOCIDE, ALL IDEAS ABOUT DEMOGRAPHICS AND BIRTH RATES, THIS IS, I THINK, PROBABLY A CONVERSATION THAT’S BEEN HAPPENING A LONG TIME BUT ONLINE IT IS INCREDIBLE AND FROM OTHER RESEARCHERS, ANTI-MUSLIM SENTIMENT IS THE FLEW THAT HOLDS TOGETHER SO MANY OTHER REACTIONARY FAR-RIGHT POLITICS TO WHITE NATIONALISTS AND SEEMS LIKE A BEDROCK SIMILARITY AND THIS LANGUAGE IS TOXIC AND INCREASINGLY BECOMING MAINSTREAM AS WELL.>>THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. IT’S BEEN A DIFFICULT DAY AND WE APPRECIATE YOU TRYING TO BRING PERSPECTIVE TO ALL OF THIS. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>STILL AHEAD ON “THE NATIONAL,” WE’LL HAVE MORE ON PEOPLE HERE IN CANADA AND AROUND THE WORLD ARE COMING TOGETHER IN THE WAKE OF THE SHOOTING.

Meet David Brough. He’s the head honcho, in fact, the only honcho
at Northern Access TV. He’s traveling in some style from one northern Ontario
town to another, checking on his network. That’s right. His network. Appropriately enough he’s playing a tune that was
stolen from the Germans by the British Eighth Army. You see, Brough
is also a thief. A TV age Robin Hood, stealing from the rich
and giving to the poor. Brough has 30 TV stations,
all illegal. Although he’s applied, none of them are licensed by
Canada’s governing body, the CRTC. [singing] This is Brough’s
master control, a plain old living room
in Toronto. Here, without permission, Brough records programs
from every TV network, Canadian and American. He constructs videotapes
that are ten hours long. The tapes are set
several at a time on a route that takes them
from one station to another. And this is a Brough
TV station, a jerry built system of
gutted tape recorders, pieces of plastic
plumbing pipe, paper clips, epoxy,
and a tangle of wires. The TV signal is beamed
out of closets, basements, fruit cellars,
and bedrooms by a tiny transmitter that
will only carry the signal five miles or so. Run ins with government
are nothing new. You see, Brough first wanted
to give his system to the government funded CBC. Brough: I pestered them enough,
they finally agreed to allow me to do a
demonstration of the system. The thing was that the
engineers in the CBC, they were the ones who turned
thumbs down on the idea. So here, in a sense, it was all was categorized very neatly
by a CBC engineer who told me to take my toys
and go home. In many respects I use
the other analogy of if a person is starving, that
because you can’t give them a T-bone steak dinner that you
will let them starve because you’ve only got a hamburger
for them. [playing harmonica] Kowalski: This is one of those
starving communities. Wawa. A mining town on Lake Superior. The only theatre closes
on Tuesday nights. The only bowling alley
went bankrupt and is now a food store. It’s too cold and snowy
to do anything outside. And until Brough came to town there were 12 channels of snow,
and the CBC. Everyone in town had to chip in
to pay the $5,000 setup fee. G 52. Kowalski: And now Wawa has its
own TV bingo every Tuesday. Cards sell in town
at four for a dollar. That pays the station
manager’s salary. The rest, a modest sum,
goes to Brough. The people love it,
flaws and all. Brough’s service has survived
exactly because it’s popular. That same popularity
thwarted the RCMP and the Department
of Communications when they tried to shut down
his first illegal station in Pickle Lake. There was an interesting confrontation between
a few dozen miners who were down at the local bars and found out that this
was happening and showed up on the scene and
they politely informed the people there that if they tried
to take away their TV station they probably wouldn’t
get back out of town. Kowalski: In Wawa he does a
talk show to field complaints. Remember, I haven’t been around
here for several months, [phone rings] and I don’t know exactly
what’s happening so, this is your opportunity
to clue me in. Hello, are you there? [on phone] Yes. Go ahead, please. Kowalski: He’s told too many
programs that are on the CBC are on his station. The kids want more cartoons. The grown ups more movies. I’m trying to force the private
side of the industry to participate in this venture
financially as well. ♪ ♪>>A DAY OF HONOURING AROUND THE WORLD.

THE ♪ [“The National” theme] Susan Harada: The RCMP has
had almost 48 hours to come up with some answers about the bungled security
operation at 24 Sussex. So far, this is all
it has had to say. It seems quite evident
by the fact that this incident occurred, that security was breached
in a serious fashion. Susan: The Prime Minister summed up the security mess
the best, while speaking of the way his
wife handled the break-in. Aline Chrétien was the one
who confronted the intruder, and raised the alarm. And I think that I’m lucky
that she was there. Susan: He certainly is, because the RCMP took
some time to show up. Sources close to the
investigation say, there were three constables
on duty that night. One at each of the two gates,
one roaming the grounds. Nevertheless,
the intruder managed to slip through the security
net at some point, police say, prior to 2:23AM. Police say he got inside
at about 2:45AM, by smashing the glass
of a door on the West side. CBC News has been told
there is a security system inside the house, but it wasn’t
working properly that night. The intruder apparently spent
at least 15 minutes inside making his way up
to the second floor, to the entrance hall of the
Chretien’s ‘ bedroom. At about 3AM,
Aline Chrétien saw him, locked both sets
of bedroom doors, picked up the
lift and ring hotline, and alerted the constable
at the gate. CBC News has also been told
the constable then radioed the sergeant in charge, who
was on duty at the detachment a kilometre down the road,
at Rideau Hall. Nothing more was done until the
sergeant arrived at 24 Sussex, with reinforcements. Even then they didn’t
go right in- they surrounded
the house first, to make sure nobody escaped. When they finally did go in
to confront the intruder, a full seven minutes
after being called, sources say he was
sitting on a sofa outside the Chretien’s ‘
bedroom, holding a knife. Reporter: In the six
to seven minutes it took to respond to the call, they could have been murdered,
right? That is a situation that the
individual was in the house, there’s no question about that,
the individual was armed, the individual did not attempt to get into
the private quarters. Susan: The man arrested in
connection with the break-in, is 34-year-old André Dallaire,
a man with no criminal record. In court he was charged
with attempted murder, on top of other charges
of break-and-enter, being unlawfully in a dwelling,
and possession of a weapon. Little is known about him,
except that he worked at this convenience store
in the Montreal area, was a good employee, quiet,
and according to his boss, was never really interested
in politics or the referendum. If he was, it didn’t show.
You know? He was so reserved,
he kept everything for himself. André Dallaire will now undergo
a 30-day psychiatric assessment at an Ottawa hospital. >>Rosemary: HOURS AFTER A GUNMAN OPEN FIRED IN NEW ZEALAND, AN AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTER DELIVERED A DEEPLY PERSONAL REFLECTION.
