RUSSIA DID IT.>>Interview: YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH PRESIDENT PUTIN AS HE IS, HE’S A STRONGMAN. HE RESPECTS POWER.

THE 15-YEAR-OLD’S BODY WAS PULLED FROM THE LAKE AT ALGONQUIN PROVINCIAL PARK YESTERDAY. SCHOOL OFFICIALS SAY THAT STUDENTS DO HAVE SWIMMING TESTS BUT AS NICOLE IRELAND REPORTS, WHAT THOSE TESTS ENTAIL IN THIS CASE ISN’T CLEAR.>>Reporter: A WEEK-LONG OUTDOOR ADVENTURE AT ALGONQUIN PARK CUT SHORT BY TRAGEDY.

AND WHEN WE GO ON A CANOE TRIP YOU NEED A CERTAIN LEVEL OF WATER READINESS TO GO IN A CANOE BECAUSE THE LAKE CONDITIONS ARE DIFFERENT.>>Reporter: THE TORONTO DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD SAYS THAT RIGHT NOW THEY’RE FOCUSED ON SUPPORTING ITS GRIEVING STUDENTS AND STAFF BUT IT PROMISES IT WILL THEN LOOK AT ALL ASPECTS OF THIS TRIP AND ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT SAFETY. NICOLE IRELAND, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Rosemary: THERE WAS AN UPDATE TODAY ON WHAT IS NEXT INTO THE INQUIRY FOR MISSING AND MURDERED INDIGENOUS WOMEN AND GIRLS. THE CHIEF COMMISSIONER MARION BULLER ANNOUNCED MORE HEARINGS TO BE HELD THIS FALL AND SHE RESPONDED TO THE SUGGESTION THAT THINGS ARE ADRIFT AFTER LOSING FIVE OF HER STAFF.>>Interview: THINGS ARE NOT DRIFTING. WE STARTED ON SEPTEMBER 1st, FOUR COMMISSIONERS AND MYSELF AND A PIECE OF PAPER, OUR TERMS OF REFERENCE. IN EIGHT MONTHS WE HIRED STAFF, WE OPENED OFFICES, WE PUT LIFE TO OUR TERMS OF REFERENCE AND WE HELD OUR FIRST HEARING.

(♪♪♪) ♪ [theme] A new life for more
than 250 people. The Arosa Sun carries
refugees from Hungary, those who fought against
a tyrannical government and then fled when their cause
was crushed by Russian tanks. More than
3,000 people jammed the dockyard
to shout their welcome. ♪ [dramatic; orchestral] And they marched down
the liner’s gang plank onto Canadian soil
accompanied by the music of the Royal 22nd
Regiment’s band. ♪ [Oh Canada] Canada is one of
the few countries accepting
Vietnamese refugees. Under our present quota,
by the end of the year we will have taken 2,000
from Hong Kong. For the past six months it’s
been up to a dedicated 22-year-old Montréaler,
Scott Mullen, to decided who gets in
and who doesn’t. Mullen: Okay, we will accept
this application
to go to Canada. Reporter: How do you know they
can adapt to Canada? Well, if somebody can sail
across the South China Sea, And spend
two months on sea, a few months here
in camp situation like this. I think they will be
able to adapt reasonably well. Noon time, and the would-be
refugees are allowed outside for an hour. When the hour is up,
they go back, single-file into the stuffy gymnasium
that is their home. The Canadian government hasn’t
had to publicly explain why it’s detaining these
people for so long, except to say that it doesn’t
yet know for sure, who they
really are. Or whether they’ll show up
for their immigration hearing. All of the other
illegal immigrants that have
come here, they haven’t been
treated that way. The turbans and beards
are a great influence. Members of the local Sikh
community are upset with the way the government
and the way the Canadian public has reacted to this latest
boatload of people. This is the image that stands
out most in people’s minds. I think they should ship them
all back where they come from. Canada will give political
asylum to 26,000 Yugoslavian
refugees. While it’s welcome news,
refugee advocates say the Canadian government is
playing a dangerous double standard. They say refugees from Somalia
should get the same treatment as those from
Yugoslavia. As we know the civil war
and also the famine has displaced
millions of people. We want
justice! Yesterday, Somalis protested
outside of immigration offices calling for
fair treatment. What Somali is more
than Sarajevo? So if don’t they give
a damn for Somalia. Different language,
different culture, different lives. You can see the strain
on so many faces. Crammed into a gymnasium,
the refugees listen to the Prime Minister explain, he hopes they
can one day return to their homeland,
if they choose. And I’m sure that you can
feel at home among us. ♪ [theme] (♪♪♪)>>Rosemary: IT’S A COMMON HEALTH PROBLEM THAT’S CONTAGIOUS, UNCOMFORTABLE, AND IT’S JUST GROSS. DOCTORS PRESCRIBE ANTIBIOTICS FOR PINK EYE BUT IT MAY NOT BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO CLEAR UP INFECTIONS.>>Interview: ONE EYE GOT RED AND GOOPY AND SENSITIVE TO LIGHT.>>Reporter: EVEN THE SIGHT OF IT IS CRINGE-WORTHY BUT PEDIATRICIANS AND FAMILY DOCTORS SEE CONJUNCTIVITIS OR PINK EYE ALL THE TIME.>>Interview: THAT’S A VERY RED EYE.>>Reporter: THE INFECTION IS USUALLY CAUSED BY AN ALLERGY, A VIRUS, OR BACTERIA. DOCTORS REALLY CAN’T TELL BUT A NEW STUDY SHOWS THAT NEARLY 60% OF CASES THEIR GO-TO TREATMENT IS ANTIBIOTIC EYE DROPS. RESEARCHERS SAY IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES THEY’RE COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY.>>Interview: MOST PATIENTS DO JUST FINE WHETHER THEY GET THE ANTIBIOTICS OR NOT.>>Reporter: RESEARCHERS ARGUE THEY CAN DO HARM. 20% OF PATIENTS WERE BEING PRESCRIBED DROPS THAT COULD MAKE THEIR UNDERLYING INFECTION WORSE. AND SATURDAYS HAVE SHOWN UP TO 80% OF PINK EYE CASES ARE CAUSED BY A VIRUS AND NOT A BACTERIA SO ANTIBIOTICS DON’T WORK. THEY ARE LOSETH STRENGTH DUE TO OVERUSE AND THEY CAN COST UP TO $200 A BOTTLE. SO WHY DO THE DOCTORS KEEP PRESCRIBING THEM?>>Interview: SO, CERTAINLY, THERE ARE PARENTS WHO FEEL THAT ONCE THEY HAVE THE EYE DROPS THEIR CHILDREN WILL BE OKAY.>>Reporter: PINK EYE IS HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS. SCHOOL AND DAYCARE POLICIES IN CANADA OFTEN ASK PARENTS TO PROVE THEIR CHILD IS ON ANTIBIOTICS BEFORE THEY CAN RETURN.>>Interview: THE DAYCARES ARE DRIVING THIS AND THE PARENTS ARE DRIVING THIS AND THEN ALSO, TO BE HONEST AS A PHYSICIAN, IT’S MORE CONVENIENT TO JUST WRITE THE PRESCRIPTION AND SEND THEM OFF.>>Interview: SO WE’RE GOING TO EXAMINE YOUR EYE…>>Reporter: DR.

TRUMP VERSUS PUTIN, A FULL CARD OF BILATERAL BOUTS BUT WILL IT BE MATCHED BY COLLABORATION? THAT’S NEXT ON “THE NATIONAL.”>>>LET’S CHECK THE BUSINESS NUMBERS. THE T.S.X. LOST 75 POINTS AND THE DOLLAR EDGED UP 2/10th OF A CENT. THE PRICE OF A rapidly increasing number
of experts and politicians are becoming
progressively alarmed about air pollution. Most of the damage
is caused by car, pollution coming
from the exhaust, and a bill has just been
introduced into congress for a federal study
of electric cars. The car uses
no gas or oil, needs almost no maintenance, and
creates no pollution or noise. Speed is a problem,
though, where the car can only get up to
40 or 50 miles an hour. Reporter:
It doesn’t look like much, but under its homemade
plywood body is an efficient zinc air battery
powered electric motor. In its present
experimental form, the car has a top speed
of 73 miles per hour and a cruising range
of more than 300 miles. It takes eight hours
to recharge the battery from an ordinary
household electrical outlet. The owner is
61-year-old Bill Ward. I asked him if he’s had any
approaches from manufacturers. Not genuine approaches, no. General Motors says
it has made a breakthrough in the development
of batteries to power the electric car
of the future. Zinc nickel oxide batteries
drive the car for 160 kilometres before
they need recharging; that’s twice as far as
conventional battery power. The motorist simply plugs
his car in overnight to build the power
back up again. This type of electric car
gets a top speed of 80 kilometres an hour,
and would cost about the same as a standard
sub-compact model. Reporter: It may look like
an ordinary Chrysler van on the outside, but it’s a very
different van on the inside. It uses an electrically powered
sodium sulphur battery. The electric van
was unveiled last week at Expo in Vancouver. Powerplex calculates that
electricity for its battery costs about one and
a half cents a kilometre, compared to five and a half
cents for gasoline. It’s becoming almost a ritual in
the automotive industry now: a car company puts on
a big PR show for its new electric car,
everyone says how wonderful electric cars are,
and then they tell you that you can’t buy one,
even if you wanted to– because it just doesn’t
make economic sense. Experts say improvements
in technology will eventually make
electric cars practical, but it’s slow going;
just like Vancouver traffic. Reporter: There’s gold fever on
the streets of St. Paul. Everyone’s talking
about Bre X, a small Calgary mining company
that struck gold half a world away. And even though the mines
are in Indonesia, a lot of the wealth
is right here in St. Paul. Do you know any
new millionaires? A few. Reporter: Traders at
the Alberta Stock Exchange say they’ve never seen
anything like it. From a low of $1.90 to a high
of $170 in just one year. Reporter: Just five weeks ago,
Bre X’s exploration chief predicted the mine could
yield up to 200 million ounces of gold;
but last week, the first signs
of potential trouble. Bre X geologist Michael de
Guzman fell from a helicopter on a flight
to the mining site. Some say
it was suicide. Now, the Indonesian government
has put the project on hold after Bre X revealed yesterday
the size of the find may have been overstated. Wholesale panic today
over the Bre X affair. Canadians dumped
the gold company’s stock as fast as they could. Share prices crashed,
and Bre X struggled in vain to stop the damage. All this after word
the company’s supposedly gigantic gold strike
could be worthless. Reporter: Security guards have
been patrolling the building since early last night,
when the company released the independent audit
by Strathcona Minerals calling Bre X
the largest fraud in international
mining history. Bre X employees
continued to work even as the world speculated
about how such a massive salting scheme
could have been carried out. The Wall Street Journal
ran a front page story talking about
a secret storage site where workers
added mysterious powders to already crushed rock
before sending it on to the labs. These are pictures
of that alleged site. The sign says, “If you have
no business here, go away.” Around 400 million in market
capitalization has been lost in the first
four minutes of trading. That money is gone. (♪♪♪)>>President Donald Trump: I DON’T KNOW PUTIN AND HE SAID NICE THINGS ABOUT ME, IF WE GOT ALONG WELL THAT WOULD BE GOOD.

GOOD TO SEE YOU BOTH, APPRECIATE IT.>>Interview: HI.>>Rosemary: SO MERKEL’S AGENDA IS SORT OF TYPICAL, CLASSICAL MERKEL STUFF AND YOU UNDERSTAND WHY SOME G20 LEADERS WILL WANT TO TALK ABOUT THOSE THINGS BUT NOT EVERYBODY. SO WHAT IS SHE UP AGAINST HERE IN TRYING TO GET PEOPLE LIKE DONALD TRUMP TO TALK ABOUT PROTECTIONISM AND CLIMATE CHANGE AND MASS MIGRATION, WILL THIS BE THE FOCUS OF THE MEET SOMETHING.>>Interview: IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO REACH AGREEMENT, ESPECIALLY ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND ON TRADE ISSUES WHERE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS REALLY IN A VERY DIFFERENT SPACE THAN MERKEL AND MOST OF THE OTHER G20 MEMBERS. ON CLIMATE CHANGE IN PARTICULAR THEY’RE REALLY — THEY’RE SO FAR APART AND THE DILEMMA IS THAT THEY CAN NEGOTIATE LANGUAGE WHICH WILL KIND OF BRIDGE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND THE REST OF THE G20 BUT THE RESULT WILL BE MUSH, AND IT WILL BE WEAK, AND THAT WILL BE PROBLEMATIC FOR MOST OF THOSE LEADERS WHO WANT TO REAFFIRM THEIR COMMITMENT TO IMPLEMENTING THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD. ALTERNATIVELY THEY COULD DO WHAT THEY DID AT THE G7 IN JUNE AND KIND OF HAVE A U.S. DISSENT FROM THE MAIN AGREEMENT OF THE SUMMIT BUT THAT’S PROBLEMATIC TOO, NOT LEAST BECAUSE A FEW OTHER COUNTRIES THAT HAVE BEEN WAIVERING ON THEIR COMMITMENT TO THE PARIS AGREEMENT MIGHT DECIDE TO JOIN WITH THE UNITED STATES AND SO IT’S GOING TO BE A TRICKY BALANCING ACT FOR HER.>>Rosemary: THAT’S WHY OUR PRIME MINISTER, LAURA, SAID THAT HE DID WANT TO SEE SOME CLEAR LANGUAGE ON THE PARIS AGREEMENT INSIDE OF THE FINAL COMMUNIQUÉ. WE ALL KNOW THAT THESE THINGS HAVE BEEN HASHED OUT IN ADVANCE, BUT DO YOU AGREE WITH ROLAND THAT WILL BE THE HARDEST AREA TO REACH SOME SORT OF CONSENSUS?>>Interview: THERE’S SO MANY HARD AREAS, I DON’T SEE ANY AREAS THAT WE CAN SAY OH, THEY’VE GOT CONSENSUS ON THAT. I THINK THAT THE CLIMATE IS GOING TO BE EXTRAORDINARILY DIFFICULT, AT THE SAME TIME, THAT’S A PLACE WHERE I THINK THAT THERE’S SOME ROOM TO MANOEUVRE WITH THE TRUMP AGENDA. THERE HAS CERTAINLY BEEN A LOT OF AMERICAN INTEREST GROUPS COMING FORWARD AND SAYING THAT WE SUPPORT THE PARIS CLIMATE COMMITMENTS EVEN IF THE PRESIDENT HAS BACKED AWAY. SO, ACTUALLY, I DON’T SEE CLIMATE AS THE MOST PROBLEMATIC OR I SEE EVERYTHING BEING QUITE PROBLEMATIC AND THE TRADE AND ECONOMIC STUFF IS GOING TO BE VERY DIFFICULT AS WELL.>>Rosemary: IT JUST SEEMS CRAZY TO ME THAT ONE OF THE MAIN THEMES IS ANTI-PROTECTIONISM AND GLOBALIZATION AND SOMEHOW YOU HAVE TO DISCUSS THESE WITH DONALD TRUMP AT THE TABLE. I MEAN, HOW DO YOU HAVE THAT CONVERSATION WITH A GUY THAT IS MOVING COMPLETELY IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, ROLAND?>>Interview: WELL, I USUALLY AGREE WITH LAURA AND I’M NOT SURE THAT I AGREE WITH HER ENTIRELY THIS TIME. I THINK THAT THE TRADE ISSUES WILL BE EASIER TO FUDGE IN THIS AGREEMENT. THEY CAN USE LANGUAGE ABOUT FAIR TRADE. I DON’T SEE THE BRIDGING ON CLIMATE AND REACHING A CONSENSUS THAT REALLY HAS A STRONG COMMITMENT TO IMPLEMENT THE PARIS AGREEMENT WHICH SO MANY OF THE G20 LEADERS HAVE COMMITTED THEMSELVES TO. BUT WHETHER IT’S TRADE OR CLIMATE, I MEAN, THE BIG QUESTION HERE IS WHETHER G20 ITSELF IS GOING TO EXPERIENCE A RUPTURE OR THERE’S GOING TO BE A MEANING OF CARRYING ON. AND IT’S IMPORTANT THAT THE G20 CARRY ON FOR A LOT OF DIFFERENT REASONS, INCLUDING THE FACT THAT THERE ARE COUNTRIES AT THE TABLE, DEVELOPING COUNTRIES AND DEVELOPED COUNTRIES, THAT ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MEET AND KEEP ON TALKING ABOUT THESE ISSUES AS THE WORLD IS UNDERGOING THESE REMARKABLE CHANGES. SO COMING OUT WITHOUT A RUPTURE MIGHT BE THE BIT OF THE THAT WE CAN HOPE FOR HERE.>>Rosemary: GO AHEAD, LAURA.>>Interview: I THINK THAT COMING UP WITH DECISIONS AND CONCLUSIONS AT THIS MEETING, THAT’S FAR TOO MUCH TO HOPE FOR. BUT I THINK THAT PEOPLE ARE THERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHICH WAY THE WIND IS BLOWING AND WHICH WAY THE WEATHER IS GOING AND WHETHER THERE’S, SAY, A CONSENSUS AMONG THE COUNTRIES THAT AREN’T THE UNITED STATES TOWARDS GREATER GLOBALIZATION IN TRADE AND ECONOMICS AND FINANCIAL INCLUSION. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE KNOW ABOUT DONALD TRUMP IS THAT HE WILL CHANGE HIS MIND. IF HE SEES A PARADE THAT HE WANTS TO GET IN FRONT OF, HE PROBABLY WILL MAKE THAT SHIFT. SO THAT’S ONE OF THE — I THINK THAT’S A POSITIVE THING THAT IS IN HIS FAVOUR.>>Rosemary: THE PERSON THAT MAYBE COULD ACT AS A BRIDGE, WHILE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT BRIDGES HERE WITH OUR GUYS IS THE PRIME MINISTER. AND WE TALK A LOT ABOUT TRUMP AND WE HAVE PUTIN THERE AND HES DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH BUT, ROLAND, WHAT IS THE LIKELIHOOD THAT TRUDEAU COULD PLAY THE ROLE OF SORT OF REACHING OUT TO TRUMP TO MAKE SURE THAT HE DOESN’T FEEL ISOLATED AND HELP HIM TOINO GET TO A PLACE TO TALK TO OTHER WORLD LEADERS.>>Interview: THE FIRST ONE IS TO PRESENT A STRONG CASE FOR HIS PRIORITIES, INCLUDING OPEN INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND INCLUDING IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PARIS AGREEMENT AND INCLUDING WOMEN’S RIGHTS AND EMPOWERMENT, THAT’S AN EMERGING POLICY WITHIN HIS FOREIGN POLICY. AT THE SAME TIME, COMING TO YOUR QUESTION, HE MIGHT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY SOMETHING OF A BRIDGING ROLE, AT LEAST TO TRY TO BUILD CONSENSUS AROUND THE TABLE. HE SEEMS TO HAVE CREDIBILITY WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP. HE CERTAINLY DOES WITH OUR EUROPEAN ALLIES. I DON’T EXPECT A LOT TO COME OUT OF THIS SUMMIT, BUT, AGAIN, AVOIDING A RUPTURE WOULD BE AN ACCOMPLISHMENT IN ITSELF. AND THEN FINALLY, OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, WE THINK ABOUT THESE SUMMITS AND YOU LOOK AT THEM FROM THE OUTSIDE AND THERE’S BIG MEETING TABLES AND THAT IS — THOSE ARE THE MAIN SUMMIT SESSIONS. BUT IT’S A KIND OF CARNIVAL OF SIDE BILATERAL DIPLOMACY THAT IS TAKING PLACE ALL THE TIME SO THE PRIME MINISTER WILL HAVE A NUMBER OF MEETINGS WITH OTHER LEADERS AND HE’LL ADVANCE CANADA’S FOREIGN POLICY AGENDA. I WOULD EXPECT HIM TO MEET WITH SOME EUROPEAN LEADERS AND HE WILL BE PUSHING HARD FOR THE QUICK COMING INTO FORCE OF THE CANADA-E.U. TRADE AGREEMENT AND HE MIGHT MEET WITH THE MEXICAN PRESIDENT TO COORDINATE ON NAFTA AND HE MIGHT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET WITH TRUMP IN WHICH CASE HE’LL WANT TO BE TALKING ABOUT NAFTA AS WELL. SO IF I WERE ADVISING THE P.M. THOSE ARE THE THREE AREAS THAT HE’D FOCUS ON AND I SUSPECT THAT’S WHAT HE’LL BE DOING.>>Rosemary: LAURA, LAST WORD TO YOU ON THAT.>>Interview: HE’S DOING EXTREMELY WELL BY BEING WINGMAN FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AND TRYING TO EASE THE WAY AND TRYING TO HELP TO EASE TRUMP’S PASSAGE INTO, YOU KNOW, A GOOD DIPLOMATIC POSITION. AS WELL AS STANDING UP FOR CANADA’S INTERESTS INTERNATIONALLY. THAT’S TOUGH. I MEAN, WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT CANADA’S INTERESTS ECONOMICALLY, ANYWAY, ARE REALLY TIED INTO THE U.S. YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO ALIENATE THAT GUY.>>Rosemary: LET ME ASK YOU ONE LAST QUESTION ABOUT PUTIN, CAN YOU ALIENATE PUTIN, AND IS THAT OKAY IF THEY DO THAT, ROLAND?>>Interview: WELL, I WOULD SAY THAT TO ME THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THIS ENTIRE SUMMIT IS THE MEETING BETWEEN TRUMP AND PUTIN. THEY HAVEN’T MET BEFORE. WE DO NOT KNOW HOW THAT’S GOING TO GO AND TRUMP HAS SENT SO MANY MIXED SIGNALS AND WE DON’T KNOW IF HE’LL RAISE RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE U.S. ELECTION AND WE DON’T KNOW IF HE’LL BE FIRM WITH PUTIN AND CONCILIATORY, AND WE KNOW THOUGH THAT TRUMP PUTS A LOT OF STOCK IN THESE PERSONAL MEETINGS AND THERE HAVE BEEN OCCASIONS IN THE PAST, FIRST MEETINGS BETWEEN PRESIDENTS AND U.S. PRESIDENTS AND RUSSIAN LEADERS, THAT HAVE SET THE TONE FOR THE ONGOING RELATIONSHIP. SO I THINK PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE WATCHING THAT EXTREMELY CLOSELY.>>Rosemary: EVERYONE THINKS THEY HAVE MET AND THEY’RE BEST BUDDIES BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT TRUMP TALKS BUT THAT’S NOT, IN FACT, THE CASE AND THIS COULD ESTABLISH WHAT THE RELATIONSHIP IS GOING FIRST.>>Interview: I HAVE SEEN THEIR PICTURES TOGETHER, YOU THINK THAT IS PHOTOSHOPPED? I THOUGHT THAT WAS REAL NEWS.>>Rosemary: WELL, THIS IS DIFFERENT NOW. ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU BOTH, THANK YOU.>>>WHEN WE COME BACK, THE STORY OF THOUSANDS OF REFUGEE CLAIMANTS LIVING IN CANADIAN LIMBO, FEARFUL OF BEIN ♪ ♪ Reporter: Just an hour after
the New York attack, planes started arriving
in Gander. While local officials figured
out what to do, passengers waited on board
in 30 degree heat. It was dusk before the first
passengers were processed and given a place to sleep. They knew little
of the day’s events. The crew didn’t really
tell us much. Of course we didn’t really know
what was going on. Reporter:
They quickly found out. There’s the plane.
You can’t miss that. [crowd murmuring] Incredible. Reporter: All night,
plane by plane, the passengers were allowed
to disembark. But their was little anger
with their own plight. I think we were just happy
to be on the ground at that point, given
what we had heard. Reporter: Every school,
church halls and basements made in to make-shift shelters. 750 at this Gander school. Many not knowing
even where they were. A lot fewer people know
Gander, never heard before. But now they know. They know of it now. Absolutely. Reporter: Daybreak brought the
reality of the task for Gander and all the surrounding
communities that chipped
in to help. Where’s this load
of stuff going? Glenwood.
School in Glenwood. Reporter: At the Salvation Army,
a desperate call for help was answered
by local residents. The biggest need for food,
towels and bedding. Getting lots of volunteers,
lots of donations, blankets, towels, food, and there’s still
a lot more to do, so we’re pushing on. Reporter:
All of what’s happening is being appreciated by
the unexpected tourists. We’re very grateful and I would
hope that Americans would treat Canadians
with the same kindness. The people in this town should
be blessed forever. Reporter: This morning,
it’s breakfast for 300. Hopefully we’ll get them all fed
within a reasonable time. How long have you been
here helping out? We came here yesterday morning
and we worked until 9:00, 10:00 last night,
we came back again 7:00 this morning. Reporter:
Most of the food donated, cooked in a school home
economics class room. None of this extraordinary
hospitality lost on the visitors. But everybody, I mean, everybody in the whole
town has pulled together. And we’re chuffed to bits.
We really are proud. You’re absolutely great, you
all. You’re lovely people. I just hope we could do the same if it ever happened
in our country. Reporter:
Joe Dunn is giving back. Serving breakfast to the town
that fed and housed him for five days when his plane was forced
to land in Gander on September 11th. Today he was joined by a dozen
other US passengers who’ve returned on this day. I can only equate it to a love
from a grandmother. That’s really what it felt like. The matrons in town,
it was really — it was their caring,
it was just unbelievable. It was a great example
of the human spirit. Reporter: That caring has turned
in to friendship. Dunn continues to stay in touch and reunite with the woman
who gave him shelter. Stella Brazil welcomed
other passengers in to her home on 9/11. She’s just one of hundreds of
local people that did the same. I think it’s just
our nature to be that way and nobody
looked at it as being any type of a big
sacrifice. Reporter: The US Ambassador
came to Newfoundland to say thank you, and remember
this day in a way most other Americans aren’t. On the one hand, it’s a very sad, tragic event that we’re
here to commemorate. But on the other hand,
you see the spirit of these people and the spirit
of the kids, and it makes you feel good. ♪ ♪>>Announcer: Jonny’s back…>>I never thought it would happen to me. ♪ [vocalizes] You better be prepared is what I’m saying.>>Announcer: An all new Still Standing.

shattered records. Reporter:
Fear. Pandemonium. An incredible force wreaking
havoc in financial markets throughout the world. [shouting] It’s bad. Bad. One word: plummet. Panic selling. Panic selling,

the New York Stock Exchange, the Dow Jones

508 points for a one day loss
of 22.6 per cent, far surpassing the
12.8 per cent drop on October 28th, 1929,
the day some say heralded in
the Great Depression. The great crash
of 1929. The day the market fell,
stocks plummeted in value. Paper fortunes wiped out and much of the world
left with a headache that lasted for
a full decade. Interviewer: What was it like?
You were there 40 years ago. Well it was bedlam and madness
