McMASTER REPLACES A NOW FORMER ADVISOR, MICHAEL FLYNN, WHO LASTED JUST 24 DAYS IN THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE. UNTIL FORCED OUT LAST WEEK AMID REPORTS THAT HE’D MISLED THE ADMINISTRATION OVER TALKS HE’D HAD WITH RUSSIA ON U.S. SANCTIONS BEFORE TRUMP WAS SWORN INTO OFFICE. AN EMBARRASSMENT FOR TRUMP WHO CALLS HIS NEW ADVISOR A MAN OF TREMENDOUS TALENT.>>Interview: I LOOK FORWARD TO JOINING THE NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM AND DOING EVERYTHING I CAN TO ADVANCE AND PROTECT THE INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SIR.>>President Donald Trump: YOU’RE GOING TO DO A GREAT JOB.>>Reporter: McMASTER’S REPUTATION IS BEING UNAFRAID TO CRITICISE HIS SUPERIORS AND NOW WORKING FOR A PRESIDENT BELIEVED TO DEMAND UNQUESTIONING LOYALTY. AND AS THE ANTI-TRUMP DEMONSTRATIONS CONTINUE, FULLY ONE MONTH INTO HIS PRESIDENCY, SO TOO THE CHALLENGES. THIS WEEK THAT INCLUDES THE EXPECTATION THAT TRUMP WILL SIGN OFF ON A NEW TRAVEL BAN, REPLACING THE OLD ONE OVERTURNED IN THE COURTS. THE NEW ONE IS SAID TO BE A TWEAKED VERSION.

THE PETITION LED TO THIS TOO, A FORMAL PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE TODAY ON WHETHER TRUMP SHOULD BE INVITED TO BRITAIN.

BUSH AND BARACK OBAMA. ALREADY PLANS FOR TRUMP HAVE BEEN SCALED BACK, WITH A SPEECH TO PARLIAMENT NOW UNLIKELY, AND AT LEAST PART OF THE TRIP REPORTEDLY SAID TO BE HELD IN SCOTLAND, CLOSER TO TRUMP’S OWN GOLF COURSES AND AWAY FROM THE CROWDS IN LONDON. BUT LONG BEFORE TRUMP GETS HERE HIS VICE PRESIDENT IS ON A MISSION TO CALM NERVES IN EUROPE. AFTER THE PRESIDENT CALLED NATO “OBSOLETE” AND THE. U. “JUST A VEHICLE FOR GERMANY”, TODAY MIKE PENCE HAD SOME EXPLAINING TO DO.>>WHATEVER OUR DIFFERENCES, OUR TWO CONTINENTS SHARE THE SAME HERITAGE AND THE SAME VALUES AND THE SAME PURPOSE, TO PROMOTE PEACE AND PROSPERITY. HIEP SAYS THAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND THE E.U. AND NATO AND THAT THE MESSAGE COMES STRAIGHT FROM THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF. A NEW TONE OF COOPERATION, YES, BUT UNLIKELY TO SILENCE HIS CRITICS. WHEN TRUMP DOES COME TO THIS COUNTRY, DEMONSTRATORS SAY THEY’LL FOLLOW HIM WHEREVER HE GOES, THEY’RE PROMISING THE BIGGEST PROTESTS BRITAIN HAS EVER SEEN. THOMAS DAIGLE, CBC NEWS, LONDON.

YEARS LATER IN 1984, HE FOUGHT TO SPLIT OFF THE CANADIAN BRANCH TO FORM THE CANADIAN AUTO WORKERS OR C.A.W. FEELING THE NEEDS OF CANADIAN WORKERS WERE IGNORED BY THE LARGER AMERICAN BRANCH.

A BUSY MAN NOWADAYS AS THE WORLD LEANS IN TO LISTEN TO THE WHISPERS OUT OF WASHINGTON.>>Interview: THERE’S A ROBUST TRADITION OF ANONYMOUS DISCLOSURE TO THE PRESS, BEING A WAY IN WHICH MAJOR ABUSES ARE CALLED OUT AND MUNDANE AND PAROCHIAL STRUGGLES ARE WAGED ON A WEEKLY BASIS.>>THOSE WITH CLASSIFIED INFORMATION ARE LEAKING IT OUT.

THE LAWS ON THE BOOKS AGAINST LEAKING IN THE U.S. ARE REALLY BROAD AND YET THE RATE OF ENFORCEMENT HAS BEEN TRIVIAL.>>Adrienne: UNDER BARACK OBAMA THERE WAS A CRACKDOWN OF SORTS, AT LEAST EIGHT PROSECUTIONS UNDER THE U.S. ESPIONAGE ACT, FAR MORE THAN THAN OTHER PRESIDENTS COMBINED.>>LEAKS RELATED TO NATIONAL SECURITY CAN PUT PEOPLE AT RISK.>>Adrienne: JOURNALISTS WERE SNOOPED ON, SUBPOENAED, THEIR SOURCES JAILED.

YOU HAD TO GO ON THE OUTSIDE AND THEN GET YOUR FINGERS INTO THE MESH THERE AND CLIMB UP.>>Reporter: NOT TO DAMAGE ANYTHING, JUST AS BASE JUMPERS PUT IT, TO BORROW ALTITUDE. IT LOOKS A LONG WAY UP TO ME.>>Interview: THERE’S A QUICK WAY DONE. 500 FEET AND YOU HAVE 3 SECONDS BEFORE YOU PULL YOUR PARACHUTE AND A 10 TO 15 SECOND CANOPY RIDE, NOT VERY LONG.>>Reporter: IT WAS THE BEGINNING OF AN UNBELIEVABLE CLIMB THAT MADE HIS YOUNG BROTHER THE BEST IN THE WORLD AND LED HIM TO A TRAGIC END JUST ONE MONTH AGO. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE HIM?>>Interview: GRAHAM IN A FEW WORDS, THE TYPE OF GUY THAT JUST LIVED HIS LIFE THE WAY HE WANTED TO LIVE IT. LIVED IT WITH PASSION AND LIVED IT TO THE FULLEST. GROWING UP, I MEAN, I WAS ALWAYS A BIT OF A CRAZY ONE BUT WITH HIM HE TOOK IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL. YEAH, HE WAS AN ADRENALIN JUNKIE AS WELL.>>Reporter: IN THOSE EARLY YEARS IN ONTARIO, IF YOU DIDN’T JUMP OFF TOWERS, YOU JUMPED OFF BUILDINGS.

THAT’S NOT LEGAL.>>Interview: UM, YEAH, I MEAN, IT’S NOT LEGAL BUT THE ACTUAL JUMPING ASPECT OF IT ISN’T ILLEGAL. BASE JUMPERS FOR THE MOST PART ARE PRETTY RESPECTFUL WHEN THEY ARE DOING THAT SORT OF STUFF AND, I MEAN, THERE’S ASPECTSES F THE SPORT OF LEAVING NO TRACE AND MAKING SURE THAT YOU DON’T DAMAGE ANYTHING LATER THERE.>>Reporter: BUT WITH THE CAMERA ROLLING HE DID JUMP AND THERE WAS DAMAGE. THE VIDEO WASN’T SUPPOSED TO BE SHARED ONLINE BUT SOMEONE DID. IT WENT VIRAL, MILLIONS WATCHED THE VIDEO. THE LANDING WASN’T AS SMOOTH AS IT LOOKED. WHISTLER BLACKCOMB WAS NOT AMUSED, THEY CALLED THE RCMP.>>WOO-HOO!>>Reporter: GRAHAM DICKINSON DECIDED TO GET OUT OF THE COUNTRY. BROTHER EVAN SAID IT SENT HIM ON A PATH TO EVEN BIGGER.>>Interview: I THINK THAT IT ALMOST HAD A POSITIVE SPIN FOR HIM BECAUSE, OBVIOUSLY, HE LEFT — HE LEFT THE B.C. AREA AND THEN HE WENT AND MET UP WITH A FRIEND IN DUBAI.>>Reporter: GRAHAM STARTED TO DEVELOP HIS SKILLS AS A WINGSUIT JUMPER DOING SOMETHING CALLED PROXIMITY FLYING. THE UNIQUE SUIT ALLOWS THE PILOT TO FALL WITH PRECISE MANOEUVRING, FLYING AT HIGH SPEEDS VERY CLOSE TO THINGS LIKE THE CLIFF BASE BEFORE POPPING THE PARACHUTE AND BRINGING HIMSELF IN FOR A LANDING.>>OH, I WAS CRYING, IT WAS SO MUCH FUN.>>Reporter: THEY CALL THIS A WINGSUIT?>>Interview: YEP. TWO VENTS, ONE — EACH WING THAT WILL INFLATE THE WING AND THEN YOU’VE GOT ONE ON THE LEG AS WELL.>>Reporter: SOON THE STUDENT BECAME THE TEACHER. THEIR WHILE STATISTICS ARE HARD TO COME BY, WINGSUIT BASE JUMPING IS GLOBALLY CONSIDERED ONE OF THE HOTTEST SPORTS IN THE 18 TO 35-YEAR-OLD SINGLE MALE DEMOGRAPHIC. GRAHAM, WHO WAS QUICKLY CONSIDERED A TOP PERFORMING OR ELITE PILOT, STARTED TEACHING OLDER BROTHER EVAN EVERYTHING THAT HE COULD ABOUT THIS EVEN MORE EXTREME ASPECT OF AN ALREADY EXTREME SPORT. SO WHEREWEARING THIS THING YOU CAN GET UP TO SPEEDS OF WHAT — 200 km/h?>>Interview: YEAH, DEFINITELY.

JUMPING TOGETHER, LIVING TOGETHER FOR MONTHS WHILE DRIVING ACROSS EUROPE, LOOKING FOR NEW PLACES TO LAUNCH.>>Interview: YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE DESCRIBE HIM AS A FREE SPIRIT, THAT’S DEFINITELY GRAHAM. LIKE, HE DID WHATEVER HE WANTED TO DO REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THAT WAS A GOOD DECISION. I MEAN, FEARLESS, SOME WOULD CALL HIM RECKLESS, BUT IF YOU ACTUALLY WATCHED HIM JUMP AND YOU KNEW THE PLANNING THAT WENT INTO A LOT OF THE STUFF HE DID, I MEAN, HE WAS AN AGGRESSIVE FLYER BUT HE WAS SUPER CALCULATED IN EVERYTHING THAT HE DID.>>Reporter: AS GRAHAM GOT BETTER AND MORE DARING HE ATTRACTED GROUPS LIKE THE WORLD WINGSUIT LEAGUE WHERE HE WAS PROFILED AS ONE OF ITS TOP RACERS. COMPANIES LIKE GO PRO OFFERED UP FREE CAMERAS AND ONLINE THIS ATTRACTED MORE AND MORE ATTENTION. HE MADE IT TO THE TOP PRETTY MUCH?>>Interview: YEAH, LIKE IT’S NOT — OBVIOUSLY IT’S NOT A TELEVISED SPORT AND THERE’S NO KIND OF WAY TO MAKE IT THAT. IT’S BEEN POPULARIZED MAINLY BY YouTube AND WITHIN THE JUMPING COMMUNITY, YEAH, HE WAS — I MEAN, HE WAS ARGUABLY ONE OF THE BEST PILOTS IN THE WORLD, WINGSUIT PILOTS, YEAH. THIS IS THE VIDEO THAT MADE HIM FAMOUS. 14 MILLION HITS ON IT. THAT WAS WHAT GRAHAM WAS ALL ABOUT, WAS GETTING REAL LOW AND REAL CLOSE TO THE GROUND FOR THE REALLY FAST SPEED. PROXIMITY FLYING WAS CLOSE TO THE SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN BUT AS NEWER JUMPS CAME OPEN UP, TERRAIN FLYING BECAME SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE WOULD DO AND NOW YOU’RE FLYING OVER TREES AND CREVACES.>>Reporter: IT LOOKS PRETTY CRAZY LOOKING?>>Interview: YEAH, DEFINITELY SOME CRAZY-LOOKING STUFF.>>Reporter: BUT ALSO THESE VIDEOS ONLINE, GRAPHIC VIDEO SHOWING WHAT CAN HAPPEN.>>Interview: JUST STAY AWAKE, BUDDY, TALK TO ME.>>Interview: WELL, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WATCH THIS AND THEY’RE GOING, THOSE PEOPLE ARE CRAZY AND THEY MUST HAVE A DEATH WISH.>>Interview: I LOOK AT IT THE OTHER WAY WHERE I HAVE A LIFE WISH BECAUSE BASE JUMPING, LIKE I’VE SAID IT BEFORE, LIKE I’M SURE THAT GRAHAM FELT THE SAME WAY, I WOULD RATHER LIVE A LIFE EXPERIENCING EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED THROUGH BASE JUMPING AND DIE A SHORTER LIFE THAN TO LIVE, DIE AN OLD MAN AND NOT HAVING HAD THOSE EXPERIENCES.>>WOO!>>Reporter: ONLINE AS PEOPLE WATCHED JUMPS LIKE THIS ONE, GRAHAM TRYING TO HIT A TARGET AT HIGH SPEED DURING A COMPETITION IN CHINA… COMING VERY CLOSE TO A CABLE CAR SYSTEM… SOME STARTED TO OPENLY QUESTION THE RISKS HE WAS TAKING. BESIDES ALL OF YOUR ASTONISHING SKILLS, THEY WROTE, THERE WILL BE THE DAY THAT YOU RUN OUT OF LUCK. THIS HAS GONE WAY BEYOND JUST BORDERING ON THE INSANE. CHALLENGING DEATH? YOU CAN’T ALWAYS WIN, YOU KNOW. IT CERTAINLY WORRIED KRISTEN JOHNSTON.>>Interview: GRAHAM WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE — ONE OF THE BEST WINGSUIT TERRAIN FLIERS AND I THINK THAT HE FELT LIKE HE NEEDED TO UPHOLD THAT REPUTATION TO ALL OF HIS FANS. LIKE, AS MUCH –>>Reporter: SO THERE WAS THAT PRESSURE?>>Interview: YEAH, HE FELT IT. HE MADE A FEW COMMENTS TO ME, LIKE, YOU KNOW, THAT’S WHY PEOPLE LIKE TO PAY, THAT’S WHY PEOPLE WANTED TO SEE HIS VIDEOS.>>LOOK AT THE CLEAR BLUE SKIES. A BEAUTIFUL OCEANVIEW. LET ME WALK BACKWARDS. SHOW YOU WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT. OH, YEAH. YEAH!>>Reporter: GRAHAM LIKED CHINA, LIKED THE APPRECIATION FOR THE SPORT THERE. ON JANUARY 24th, LESS THAN A WEEK AFTER HIS 29th BIRTHDAY, GRAHAM POSTED THIS PICTURE WITH THE WORDS “FEELING LIKE HE IS DREAMING FROM TIANMEN NATIONAL PARK IN CHINA.” THE NEXT DAY OUT FLYING BY HIMSELF HE WAS KILLED. EVAN HASN’T SLEPT PROPERLY SINCE.>>Interview: YEAH.>>Reporter: HARD MOMENT?>>Interview: YEAH, IT WAS DEFINITELY A REALLY ROUGH MORNING FOR ME. I, UNFORTUNATELY, HAD TO CALL MY MOTHER AND TELL HER.>>Reporter: OH, WOW.>>Interview: WHICH WAS — IT WAS HEARTBREAKING AS FINDING OUT THE NEWS MYSELF AS TO HAVE TO TELL HER.>>Reporter: HIS PARENTS TRAVELLED TO CHINA TO SEE HIM ONE LAST TIME BEFORE CREMATION AND TO BRING HIM HOME. EVAN ISN’T SURE ABOUT WINGSUITING ANYMORE. YOU HAVE LOST A FEW FRIENDS?>>Interview: YEAH. I MEAN, SINCE I STARTED PROBABLY I’D SAY OVER 20 EASILY, 20, 25.>>Reporter: SO YOU’RE HAVING A ROUGH RIDE AT THE MOMENT?>>Interview: YEAH, LIKE IT’S DEFINITELY TOUGH. I DON’T KNOW HOW EAGER I AM TO DO IT AGAIN, I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL EVER SEE A WINGSUIT BASE JUMP AGAIN. I KNOW THAT MY MOTHER WOULD DEFINITELY PREFER IT THAT WAY, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, I KNOW THAT GRAHAM WOULD DEFINITELY PREFER IT IF I WENT ON AND DID WHAT I WANTED TO DO BUT, YEAH, IT’S DEFINITELY — IT’S DEFINITELY MADE ME RECONSIDER EVER JUMPING AGAIN FOR SURE.>>Reporter: THIS WEEKEND HIS FRIENDS WILL GATHER IN TORONTO TO SAY GOODBYE. EVAN WILL ALSO BRING SOME OF HIS LITTLE BROTHER’S ASHES HERE TO THE PLACE WHERE THEY FIRST JUMPED TOGETHER, THE PLACE THAT WAS REALLY THE BEGINNING OF THE END.

ACCORDING TO THE CONDO CORPORATION THINGS SUCH AS TWO FLOWER POTS THAT WERE TOO LARGE AND EXTRA PATIO CHAIR. SOLAR LIGHTS, NOT ALLOWED IN THE BY-LAWS.>>Interview: I WAS ABSOLUTELY FLOORED. I THINK THIS IS NOT HOW ANY INDIVIDUAL SHOULD BE TREATED.>>Reporter: THE PROBLEM STARTED, SAYS PILOT, AFTER SHE SUCCESSFULLY FOUGHT A 22% CONDO FEE INCREASE TWO YEARS AGO. EVER SINCE THEN SHE SAYS SHE’S BEEN TARGETED. NEITHER THE CONDO BOARD NOR THE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY WOULD GIVE AN INTERVIEW. CONDOS ARE THE FASTEST GROWING TYPE OF HOUSING IN CANADA. THE CONDO INFORMATION CENTRE WAS CREATED BY A CONDO OWNER TO HELP OTHER OWNERS TO UNDERSTAND THEIR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. IT’S RECEIVED 5,000 COMPLAINTS SINCE ITS CREATION FIVE YEARS AGO. ONE-THIRD OF THOSE FROM CONDO OWNERS WHO SAY THEY’VE BEEN INTIMIDATED, BULLIED OR THREATENED BY BOARDS OR MANAGERS WHEN THEY MAKE JUSTIFIABLE COMPLAINTS.
