YOUR GROCERIES ARE NEXT.>>THE LOBLAWS, METRO, SOBEYS, THEY ALL WILL HAVE TO RESPOND. [♪♪♪]>>Susan: IMAGINE IF EVERYTHING YOU ONCE OWNED WAS GONE. AS DRIER WEATHER STARTS TO MOVE INTO TEXAS TONIGHT, THAT IS THE REALITY FOR HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. THEY SURVIVED THE STORM BUT WHAT NOW? HARVEY MADE LANDFALL FOR A THIRD TIME TODAY JUST BEFORE DAWN WEST OF CAMERON, LOUISIANA. IT IS MAKING ITS WAY NORTH EAST, WEAKENING AS IT GOES. BEFORE IT MOVED TO LOUISIANA, THE STORM UNLEASHED RECORD-BREAKING AMOUNTS OF RAIN IN THE BEAUMONT AREA OF TEXAS. AS OF 8:00 THIS MORNING, HARVEY HAD DUMPED 93 TRILLION LITRES OF WATER. A LOT SWIRLING INTO HOUSES AND APARTMENT COMPLEXES AND TRAILERS. MORE THAN 30,000 PEOPLE ARE IN SHELTERS TONIGHT.>>WE HAVE APPROXIMATELY 30,000 BEDS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR SHELTERING AS NEEDED. AND WE CONTINUE TO WORK ON ADDITIONAL BACKUP PLANS IN THE EVENT THAT MORE THAN THAT IS NEEDED.>>Susan: AND MORE MAY WELL BE NEEDED AS THE WATERS RECEDE. PEOPLE ARE GETTING A LOOK AT THEIR HOMES FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE WEEKEND. AND REALIZING THAT HE WILL NOT SOON BE LIVING THERE IF AT ALL.>>HOW FIRST GLIMPSES DECEIVE. IT WAS A PRETTY MORNING. THE WATER DRAINING AWAY. THIS IS THE TIME IT GETS UGLY AGAIN. THE POLICE CALL BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS SEEN A BODY IN THE WATER.>>I DON’T KNOW KNOW WHERE.>>OH, MY GOD!>>Reporter: PEOPLE WERE BEING SWEPT AWAY WAS IMMEDIATELY CLEAR WHEN HARVEY HIT. THIS WAS THE APARTMENT COMPLEX ON SUNDAY. THESE ARE THE STREETS AROUND IT TODAY. INSIDE THE COMPLEX, THOSE COMING BACK FOR WHAT THEY CAN. THERE IS NOT MUCH. IT IS A MESS. THAT IT IS HERE AT ALL IS INCREDIBLE.>>Interview: THANKS TO OUR NEIGHBOURS, THEY ALLOWED US TO COME ON TOP OF THE ROOF. WE HAD NO MORE OPTIONS.>>THERE WERE 30 ON THERE.>>WE ARE TRYING TO FIND A MAINTENANCE GUY TO FIND A KEY. I DON’T WANT TO BREAK THE WINDOW.>>Reporter: THIS RETIRED COP DOES NOT LIVE HERE. A FRIEND SENT HIM TO FIND HIS DOG THAT HAD BEEN TRAPPED INSIDE FOR DAYS. HE BROUGHT FOOD, CAGES.>>THERE WE ARE.>>WE GOT THEM ALL.>>ALL RIGHT, EVERYBODY IS IN CUSTODY.>>Reporter: IN THE SCHEME OF WHAT HAPPENED TO WOOD FOREST IT DOES NOT MUCH MATTER, AROUND THE CORNER, REAL DEVASTATION. INSIDE, ONE RUINED HOME, MORE FRANTIC, NOW AGGRESSIVE PETS. THE WOMAN WHO LIVES HERE DIED IN THOSE FLOOD WATERS. HER BODY FOUND THIS MORNING LODGED IN THE FENCE. IT TOOK HOURS FOR POLICE AND MORGUE OFFICIALS TO ARRIVE. NEIGHBOURS HORRIFIED AND HELPLESS SEEING HER LIKE THIS.>>THERE HAVE BEEN 12 DEATHS IN THE AREA. LITTLE CHILDREN 5 YEARS OLD RUSHED OUT OF THEIR PARENTS’ HANDS.>>Reporter: THE WOMAN WAS KESHA. HER FRIEND AND HER EVACUATED TOGETHER. KESHA DECIDED TO COME BACK FOR HER DOG.>>SHE CAME BACK BECAUSE SHE WAS GOING TO WALK THROUGH, IT WAS LIKE SNAKES AND STUFF.>>Reporter: SHE IS FROM LOUISIANA AND ENDURED KATERINA AND WAS FORCED TO EVACUATE AFTER HURRICANE RITA 12 YEARS AGO.>>Interview: I EVACUATED HERE AND RESTARTED HERE AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED HERE. OKAY. IF THE FLOOD COMES, I WILL BE ABLE TO TRADE THIS AND THAT. WHEN I WENT IN THE HOUSE, EVERYTHING WAS FLOATING. NOTHING WAS SAVED.>>Reporter: SHE NEVER DID GET THE CAR STARTED. EVERYONE IS HELPING. SPENDING HOURS TRYING TO HELP IN THE NAME OF THEIR LOST FRIEND KESHA. TRYING TO COAX THE DOGS OUT. FINALLY, THEY CAME. THIS IS A PROBLEM PEOPLE COULD HANDLE. EVERYTHING ELSE, A LITTLE TOO OVERWHELMING.>>Susan: THAT STORY TONIGHT FROM ADRIENNE ARSENAULT IN HOUSTON.>>>THE COST FOR REBUILDING WILL BE MONUMENTAL. MANY PEOPLE IN HOUSTON MAY BE STUCK WITH THE BILLS. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CRUNCHED THE NUMBERS AND DISCOVERED FAR FEWER HOUSTON HOMEOWNERS HAVE FLOOD INSURANCE TODAY THAN FIVE YEARS AGO. 2 OUT OF 10. THERE COULD BE MANY REASONS FOR THE DROP, THE EXPERTS BELIEVE A LACK OF FEAR IS THE MAIN ONE. THE LAST BIG FLOOD WAS 16 YEARS AGO. IT WAS NOT SEEN AS A BIG RISK.>>>WORKERS AT THIS CALL CENTRE IN SYDNEY, NOVA SCOTIA HAVE BECOME A CALM VOICE AT THE OTHER END OF THE LINE FOR THOUSANDS OF HARVEY VICTIMS. THEY HAVE CONTRACT. THERE WERE CALLS TO THE AMERICAN RED CROSS.>>THERE WERE EMERGENCY SITUATIONS. PEOPLE CRYING. UPSET. OBVIOUSLY, NOT HAVING A PLACE TO GO AND NOT HAVING FOOD. NOT HAVING WATER. AND PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, WITH SMALL KIDS. IT WAS REALLY, REALLY HARD TO DEAL WITH AT FIRST.>>Susan: NOW PEOPLE ARE CALLING, MOSTLY WANTING TO DONATE OR VOLUNTEER.>>>THE STORM OBVIOUSLY LEFT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITHOUT POWER. ALONG WITH CLEANUP, A DAUNTING CHALLENGE IS GETTING PEOPLE BACK ONLINE. KIM BRUNHUBER FOLLOWED ALONG WITH A POWER CREW.>>Reporter: IT IS LIKE A HORROR VERSION OF THE THREE LITTLE PIGS. BRICK HOUSES STILL STANDING, THOSE MADE OF ANYTHING ELSE, METAL, WOOD, HAVE SMASHED. WELCOME TO ROCKPORT WHERE HARVEY LANDED AS CATEGORY 4 HURRICANE. EVERYONE HAS A PERSONAL MESSAGE FOR HARVEY OR EACH OTHER. THE RED CROSS WORKERS CRUISE SLOWLY THROUGH OFFERING BLANKETS AND FOOD. OTHER WORKERS ARE BUSY ON THE GROUND AND OVERHEAD, REBUILDING ROCKPORT. THE FIRST TASK, CLEAR THE DEBRIT. AARON HAS BEEN WORKING SINCE 6 A.M. HE WILL STOP AT 10 P.M..>>Interview: 7 DAYS A WEEK.>>Reporter: HE IS AMONG 50 UTILITY WORKERS FROM ONE COMPANY WHO CAME FROM KENTUCKY. THEY STARTED TO DRIVE HERE EVEN BEFORE THE HURRICANE WHEN THEY HEARD WHERE IT WAS GOING TO LAND. THEY KNEW THEY WOULD BE NEEDED. THEY DID NOT KNOW HOW MUCH.>>Interview: THIS IS ABOUT AS BAD AS IT GETS.>>Reporter: THEY CANNOT GUESS HOW MANY POLES ARE DOWN. SO THEY WILL START WITH THIS ONE. ALREADY A PROBLEM. THE LINE IS CAUGHT IN A TREE. ACROSS THE CITY, THERE ARE CREWS LIKE THIS FROM ALL OVER TEXAS AND NEIGHBOURING STATES. COORDINATING THEM, A NIGHTMARE.>>Interview: IT IS LIKE TAKING 2,000 PEOPLE THAT YOU DON’T KNOW AND TRYING TO GIVE THEM ORDERS IN A MARCHING BAND.>>Reporter: IT IS SLOW GOING BECAUSE OF THE RESIDUAL FLOOD WATERS.>>THE GROUND IS SATURATED. WHEN YOU DIG A HOLE IT FALLS IN.>>Reporter: THEY HAVE BEEN HERE FOR AN HOUR, THIS IS ONE POLE.>>Interview: I HAVE TO BE HONEST, I WAS NERVOUS DRIVING SO CLOSE TO DOWNED POWER LINES. I NEED NOT HAVE WORRIED, THERE IS NO POWER IN ROCKPORT. THERE WILL NOT BE FOR WEEKS AND SOME FOR MONTHS.>>Reporter: EVEN IF THEY FIXED THE POLES TODAY, ROCKPORT WOULD STILL NOT HAVE POWER.>>THE SUBSTATIONS FOR THE AREA, THEY DON’T HAVE TRANSMISSION LINES TO FEED THEM.>>Reporter: FINALLY THE POLE IS READY TO MOUNT. IT IS HARD WORK IN 37° HEAT. A WOMAN COMES TO DROP OFF WATER. NO BIG DEAL, NOT WORTH MAKING A FUSS, SHE SAYS. AS SHE DRIVES BY, SHE SAYS THIS.>>ROCKPORT WILL BE REBUILT AND WILL COME BACK STRONGER THAN EVER.>>Reporter: SOMEONE FINDS A FLAG. THEY WILL KEEP IT. FIND A WAY TO MOUNT IT ON THE TRUCK TO FLY LIKE SO MANY OTHERS IN THE BROKEN TOWN. DEFIANT. KIM BRUNHUBER, CBC NEWS, ROCKPORT, TEXAS.>>Susan: SO MUCH NOW DEPENDS ON THE STORM’S PATH. AND ONCE AGAIN TONIGHT, CBC METEOROLOGIST JOHANNA WAGSTAFFE JOINS US. HARVEY IS A TROPICAL DEPRESSION. IT IS MOVING DIFFERENTLY THAN THE LAST DAYS. TEM US ABOUT THAT.>>Johanna: IT IS FINALLY STARTING TO PICK UP FORWARD SPEED TONIGHT. THAT IS A GOOD THING. ESPECIALLY AFTER SITTING OFFSHORE OF TEXAS AND LOUISIANA, CRAWLING FOR THE PAST FIVE DAYS. THE FORWARD MOTION IS GOOD NEWS. EVEN THOUGH IT WEAKENED, IT IS A TROPICAL DEPRESSION BECAUSE THE WINDS ARE BELOW 55 km/h. IT HAS TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS TONIGHT. IT IS FUNNELLING VERY INTENSE ROUNDS OF RAIN RIGHT ALONG THE TEXAS, LOUISIANA BORDER, PARTICULARLY FOR THE BEAUMONT AREA WHERE WE ARE LOOKING AT SOME PRETTY INCREDIBLE RAINFALL RATES THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT. WE COULD BE TALKING ANOTHER 250 mm, BUT AT LEAST HARVEY BEGINNING TO MOVE NORTH. WE WILL SEE HEAVY RAIN IN LOUISIANA AND KENTUCKY OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS.>>Susan: HOW BIG A RISK UP NORTH? IT IS MOVING ALONG THERE NOW. ARE THEY BRACING FOR ANOTHER BAD STORM?>>Johanna: LET ME START WITH THE FACT THAT HARVEY IS NOT EXPECTED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACT CANADA. LET ME TAKE YOU THROUGH THE RAINFALL FORECAST. IT TRACKS THROUGH THE MISSISSIPPI, OHIO VALLEY. THEN FIZZLES OUT BEFORE THE UPPER GREAT LAKES. THAT SAID, IT IS EXPECTING A LOT OF RAIN ON THE STORM TRACK. HARVEY IS BEGINNING TO WEAKEN. IF IT TRACKS NORTHEASTWARD, IT WILL BRING SIGNIFICANT RAIN ALONG THE OHIO, MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. DOWNGRADED TO A POST TROPICAL STORM IN THE NEXT 48 HOURS. BUT STAYING WELL SOUTH OF THE GREAT LAKES. THIS IS STILL A SIGNIFICANT STORY, SUSAN. LIKELY FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.>>Susan: WE LIKE TO KEEP IT SOUTH OF THE GREAT LAKES. THANK YOU.>>>PART OF THE HUGE ECONOMIC IMPACT WILL COME FROM SHUTTING DOWN PARTS OF THE GULF COAST OIL INDUSTRY. THAT COULD AFFECT CANADA’S OILPATCH TOO. CAROLYN DUNN LOOKS AT THAT TONIGHT.>>Reporter: IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE SIZE AND SCOPE OF HURRICANE HARVEY AND THE DEVASTATION THAT FOLLOWED, PUT A DOLLAR VALUE ON IT. THAT IS WHAT THE GOVERNOR OF TEXAS DID.>>KATERINA FUNDING WAS WELL OVER 100 BILLION. I WANT TO SAY IT WAS 125 BILLION. IF WE GO ON A PARALLEL STANDARD, IT SHOULD BE FAR IN EXCESS OF THAT AMOUNT.>>Reporter: THE WORLD’S EYES HAVE BEEN RIGHTLY ON THE PEOPLE LEFT DEVASTATED HARVEY, A MAJOR INDUSTRY THAT EMPLOYEES MANY OF THEM IS SHUT DOWN. THE LARGEST REFINERIES ARE OFF LINE.>>WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IN THE PAST, IT WILL TAKE DAYS BEFORE THOSE FACILITY WORKERS CAN GET BACK TO WORK. WHEN YOU CAN FIRE UP THE REFINERIES. WHEN PILOTS CAN SAFELY GET TO THE BOATS AND CONTINUE BUSINESS AS USUAL.>>Reporter: THAT MAY BE AN OPTIMISTIC TIME LINE SINCE IT DOES NOT ACCOUNT FOR REPAIRING EQUIPMENT DAMAGED BY THE STORM OR GETTING WORKERS BACK TO THE AREA. THE ENERGY ANALYST SAID THAT CAN TAKE MANY WEEKS.>>Interview: WE ARE SEEING A GREATER SPREAD OF THE IMPLICATIONS. BIGGER OUTAGES OVER TIME. WHAT HAPPENED WITH KATERINA. IT TOOK THREE MONTHS.>>Reporter: THE WORST CASE SCENARIO ACCORDING TO THE DIRECTOR OF ENERGY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY…>>IF IT IS A LOT LONGER, THEN WE ARE LOOKING AT A SHORT-TERM LARGE SHOCK TO THE NORTH AMERICAN ENERGY MARKET IN TERMS OF LESS CAPACITY TO PRODUCE PREFIND PRODUCTS AND ALSO LOWER DEMAND FOR CRUDE OIL.>>Reporter: THAT WOULD MEAN THE CANADIAN PRODUCERS LOOKING FOR REFINERY CAPACITY FOR THE OIL THEY SEND TO THE GULF EACH DAY. THE SHORT-TERM, WELL, CONSUMERS HAVE ALREADY SEEN A JUMP IN THE PRICE OF GAS AND DIESEL AT THE PUMPS. [♪♪♪]>>Susan: COMING UP…>>ACROSS THE WATER IN FRONT OF OUR FACE.>>Susan: SHEER DETERMINATION TO GET THEIR FAMILY SAFE FROM HARVEY. THAT IS NOT WHAT MAKES THE STORY SO INCREDIBLE.>>>IT HAS BEEN 20 YEARS SINCE THE CRASH THAT KILLED A PRINCESS AND STUNNED THE WORLD.>>>RESIDENTS OF MUMBAI FACED TOREENTS OF RAIN EVERY MONTH — MONSOON SEASON. THE TRAINS ARE RUNNING BUT PARTS OF THE CITY REALLY REMAIN INUNDATED. A MOMENT’S WORTH OF RAIN FELL IN ONE DAY. 14 PEOPLE DIED. ACROSS NEPAL, BANGLADESH AND INDIA, FLOODING AND LANDSLIDES HAVE KILLED AT LEAST 950 PEOPLE AND AFFECTED TENS OF MILLIONS.>>>IN NORTHERN MANITOBA, THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE OUT OF THEIR HOMES AND ON THE MOVE. WILDFIRES HAVE FORCED THEM TO FLEE. GETTING THEM OUT IS A CHALLENGE. EVACUATION ORDERS ARE IN PLACE FOR THREE FIRST NATION OF COMMUNITIES WITHIN 20 KILOMETRES OF EACH OTHER, IN THE ISLAND LAKE REGION. THAT IS ROUGHLY 570 KILOMETRES NORTHEAST OF WINNIPEG. THE CBC’S CAMERON MacINTOSH IS IN St. THERESA.>>THE SMOKE CLEARED A BIT. THAT IS A GOOD THING. IT IS ALLOWING HUNDREDS WHO MAY HAVE BEEN STRANDED TO GET OUT. THIS WAS THE SCENE AT THE AIRPORT HERE TODAY WITH HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE LINING UP, WAITING FOR FLIGHTS TO CARRY THEM OUT OF HERE. AND THOSE PLANES DID ULTIMATELY MAKE IT INTO THE COMMUNITY. MANY OF THOSE PEOPLE WAITING INCLUDED CHILDREN AND ELDERLY WHO WAITED THROUGH THE NIGHT IN A SCHOOL GYM BECAUSE THE SMOKE WAS SO BAD, IT SOCKED IN THE COMMUNITY. MOST ARE FROM THE NEIGHBOURING COMMUNITY WASAGAMACK, THE FLAMES CAME UP SUDDENLY. 2,000 PEOPLE WERE TOLD TO GET OUT IMMEDIATELY. ALL WERE TAKEN BY BOAT ACROSS THE LAKE TO THIS COMMUNITY. IT WAS A FRANTIC AND SCARY EVACUATION.>>Interview: IT WAS A BIG FIRE. A LOT OF SMOKE.>>Reporter: WAS IT SCARY?>>Interview: VERY SCARY. ALL THE LADIES AND THE KIDS WERE EVACUATED.>>Interview: I AM WAITING TO FIND OUT.>>Reporter: 850 ELDERLY AND VULNERABLE PEOPLE ARE TAKEN OUT OF THIS COMMUNITY AND ANOTHER ONE ACROSS THE LAKE. THE LOGISTICS ARE COMPLICATED, THERE ARE NOT MANY PLACES TO GO.>>THERE IS NOT ONE CITY THAT HAS ENOUGH HOTEL ROOMS FOR US. THAT IS WHY WE ARE USING MULTIPLE SITES.>>Reporter: THE FIRE IS GROWING. REACHING 77,000 HECTARES. IT IS CONSIDERED OUT OF CONTROL. AND THE SIMPLE CHANGE IN THE WIND COULD MAKE THE SITUATION A LOT WORSE. THE NEXT COMMUNITY IN LINE TO BE EVACUATED IS THIS ONE, St. THERESA POINT. IF THAT HAPPENS, THE NUMBERS WILL GROW TO MORE THAN 7,000 EVACUEES. CAMERON MacINTOSH, CBC NEWS.>>Susan: AND TONIGHT, WE ARE LEARNING THE MILITARY IS GETTING INVOLVED IN THAT RESCUE EFFORT. A SPOKESPERSON FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF NATIONAL DEFENCE SAID IT WILL BE SENDING IN MILITARY PLANES TO PICK UP EVACUEES. THERE IS NO WORD YET ON WHEN THOSE AIRCRAFT WILL ARRIVE.>>>IN SASKATCHEWAN, TWO WILDFIRES ARE FORCING PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMES. THE HEAVY SMOKE AND HIGH LEVELS OF AIR POLLUTION PLUS ROAD CLOSURES PROMPTED AN EVACUATION ORDER IN EFFECT FOR PELICAN NARROWS. MORE THAN 1500 PEOPLE HAVE LEFT. MANY OF THEM NOW ON THEIR WAY TO PRINCE ALBERT OR SASKATOON.>>>AND IN SOUTHERN ONTARIO, TWO DAYS OF RECORD-BREAKING RAIN AROUND WINDSOR. PEOPLE CLEANING UP A SOGGY AND DANGEROUS MESS SOMETIMES. AS OF THIS AFTERNOON, THE CITY SAID IT RECEIVED MORE THAN 2600 REPORTS OF FLOODED BASEMENTS.>>>WELL, THEY SAID THEY FELT LIKE CARGO RATHER THAN HUMAN BEINGS. THAT AIR TRANSAT WAS MORE CONCERNED WITH THE STATE OF ITS PLANES THAN THE HEALTH OF ITS PASSENGERS. IN A RARE ROUND OF HEARINGS BY THE CANADIAN TRANSPORTATION AGENCY TODAY, PEOPLE WHO WERE TRAPPED ONBOARD TWO PLANES DIVERTED TO AN OTTAWA TARMAC EARLIER THIS SUMMER, TOLD OF THE AGONIZING HOURS THEY SPENT TRAPPED. HERE IS KATIE SIMPSON.>>Reporter: A DARK PICTURE IS EMERGING, ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED ONBOARD TWO AIR TRANSAT PLANES, STOPPED FOR HOURS IN WEATHER DELAYS AT THE OTTAWA AIRPORT. IN THE FIRST DAY OF TESTIMONY AT THE CANADIAN TRANSPORTATION AGENCY, PASSENGERS SPARED NO DETAIL.>>IT WAS SO INBEARABLY HOT IN THERE. ONE BOY WAS VERY ILL. HE WAS WALKING DOWN, RUNNING DOWN THE AISLE TO GET TO THE BATHROOM, HE THREW UP ALL OVER PASSENGERS.>>WE DID NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING. WE HAD HOT AIR BLOWING IN THE PLANE. THE STENCH IN THE PLANE WAS UNBELIEVABLE.>>Reporter: THE CTA IS INVESTIGATING WHAT HAPPENED ON THE EVENING OF JULY 31st. WHEN TWO AIR TRANSAT FLIGHTS FROM EUROPE WERE DIVERTED TO THE CAPITAL BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER IN MONTREAL. THE PASSENGERS ON BOTH FLIGHTS WERE KEPT ONBOARD FOR 4-6 HOURS. THERE WAS LITTLE FOOD AND WATER, THEY SAID AND NO CLEAR ANSWERS WHY THEY COULD NOT GET OFF THE PLANE.>>I HAVE BEEN TREATED LIKE NOT A HUMAN BEING.>>Reporter: THE PASSENGER SAID AS IT UNFOLDED, SHE SAW MEMBERS OF THE FLIGHT CREW OUTSIDE THE PLANE TAKING SELFIES.>>I WAS VERY AWARE OF THE DIFFICULT SITUATION THAT HAS BEEN EXPERIENCED BY OUR PASSENGERS. WE HAVE MADE OUR APOLOGIES TO THAT AND WE APOLOGIZE AGAIN.>>Reporter: AIR TRANSAT WILL PRESENT ITS SIDE OF THE STORY TOMORROW. THE TRANSPORT MINISTER SAID HE WILL BE WATCHING. EARLIER THIS YEAR, MARC GARNEAU INTRODUCED LEGISLATION TO ADDRESS THESE ISSUES.>>IN OUR INTEREST TO PASS THIS BILL AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE SO THAT IN 2018, WE CAN HAVE A PASSENGER BILL OF RIGHTS.>>Reporter: AIR TRANSAT TRIED TO BLAME THE OTTAWA AIRPORT. QUESTIONING THE EXPERIENCE OF STAFF AND WHETHER IT COULD HANDLE AN INFLUX OF DIVERTED PLANES. THE ALLEGATIONS THE AIRPORT SAID HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SITUATION. KATIE SIMPSON, CBC NEWS, OTTAWA.>>THREE CALGARY POLICE HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH ASSAULT AND KIDNAPPING. ALLEGATIONS WHICH STEM FROM A 2010 INVESTIGATION INVOLVING AT RISK YOUTH. THE OFFICERS WERE MEMBERS OF THE VICE UNIT. IT IS ALLEGED THEY PICKED UP A MAN THEY THOUGHT HAD SOME INFORMATION. THEY DROVE HIM AROUND FOR 20 MINUTES WHILE ASSAULTING HIM. THE OFFICERS HAVE BEEN PLACED ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE.>>>STRUGGLING YOUTH ARE THE FOCUS OF THE NEXT STORY AS WELL. NEW RESEARCH PRESENTS SOME HARD DATA WHEN IT COMES TO MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES. YOUNG CANADIANS IN PARTICULAR ARE GETTING TOO LITTLE TOO LATE WITH SOME DIRE CONSEQUENCES. VIK ADHOPIA HAS THE DETAILS.>>Reporter: WHEN SHE WAS 12, SHE STRUGGLED WITH SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT TALKED ABOUT.>>Interview: I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT I WAS GOING THROUGH. I DID NOT KNOW WHAT MENTAL ILLNESS WAS. I DID NOT KNOW HOW OR WHEN I NEEDED TO ACCESS HEALTH.>>Reporter: WHAT BEGAN AS AN EATING DISORDER, TOOK CONTROL HER LIFE. TREATMENT FINALLY CAME. NOT WITH HER REGULAR DOCTOR.>>I WENT TO A WALK IN AND I WAS DIAGNOSED AND GIVE MEDICATION IN 15 MINUTES OF MEETING THE DOCTOR.>>Reporter: IT IS THE COMMON WAY YOUNG PEOPLE IN CANADA ACCESS MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT ACCORDING TO NEW NUMBERS BASED ON PATIENT DATA. ALBERTA LEADS THE WAY WITH HALF OF 10-14 YEAR-OLDS GOING TO EMERGENCY. FOR 20-24 YEAR-OLDS, ONTARIO HAD THE LOWEST RATE OF FOLLOW UP WITH THE DOCTOR WITHIN A WEEK.>>Interview: NO ONE PROVINCE PERFORMS UNIVERSALLY BADLY OR UNIVERSALLY WELL.>>Reporter: THE NUMBERS VERIFY THAT EVERYWHERE TREATMENT MENTAL ILLNESS AND ADDICTION LAGS BEHIND OTHER ESSENTIAL HEALTH SERVICES LIKE CARDIO VASCULAR OR CANCER CARE, BUT IT IS NO LESS CRITICAL.>>IF YOUR ISSUES ARE DETECTED EARLY AND YOU HAVE ACCESS TO HIGH QUALITY CARE EARLY IN THE ONSET, IT LITERALLY CHANGES THE TRAJECTORY OF THE ILLNESS AND YOUR LIFE.>>Reporter: IN SOME PROVINCES HELP COMES TOO LATE. MANITOBA’S RATE OF SUICIDE ATTEMPTS FOR OLDER TEENS IS ALMOST DOUBLE THAT OF OTHER PROVINCES.>>WE SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING AND ESPECIALLY YOUNG PEOPLE.>>Reporter: THIS MANITOBA EMERGENCY PSYCHIATRIST SAID THE REPORT RAISES CRITICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT ACCESS TO URGENT MENTAL HEALTH CARE.>>Interview: ANOTHER FACTOR IS THAT MANITOBA HAS MOST OF ITS CARE RESOURCES CENTRALIZED IN WINNIPEG. WE KNOW PEOPLE IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE PROVINCE DO NOT DO AS WELL.>>Reporter: ACCOUNTING FOR 90% OF CANADA’S POPULATION. THE AUTHORS ARE HOPEFUL OTHERS JOIN IN, IN THE FUTURE TO MORE ACCURATELY REFLECT THE ACTUAL STATE OF MENTAL HEALTH CARE IN CANADA AND FIND WAYS TO IMPROVE IT.>>Susan: AND AT THE OTHER END OF LIFE, A NEW REPORT SAID A GROWING NUMBER OF CARE-GIVERS ARE FEELING DISTRESSED AND ANGRY FROM THE LOAD OF CARING FOR AGING FAMILY MEMBERS. ONE OF THE TRENDS IN RESEARCH BY THE SENIORS ADVOCATE. BRIAR STEWART HAS THE DETAILS.>>Reporter: PAULINE WONG HAS BEEN TAKING CARE OF HER MOTHER AND WATCHING AS SHE GRADUALLY DETERIORATES WITH DEMENTIA.>>Interview: EMOTIONALLY, YOU DO IT BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO. YOU DON’T HAVE A CHOICE.>>Reporter: WONG IS ONE OF ROUGHLY 1 MILLION UNPAID CARE-GIVERS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA. MANY FEEL OVERWHELMED. THAT IS THE FINDING OF A NEW REPORT BY THE PROVINCE’S SENIORS ADVOCATE. SHE FOUND THAT 31% OF CARE-GIVERS ARE IN DISTRESS WITH FEELINGS OF ANGER AND DEPRESSION. THAT IS A 7% INCREASE FROM TWO YEARS AGO. AND ISABELLE MACKENZIE COMES THE INCREASE COMES AS FAMILIES HAVE LESS ACCESS TO SUPPORT.>>Interview: DESPITE OUR DESIRE TO HAVE POLICIES THAT ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO STAY AT HOME, THE DATA INDICATES THAT WE ARE NOT PUTTING OUR MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTH IS.>>Reporter: B.C. HAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST RATES OF DISTRESS CARE-GIVERS IN THE COUNTRY. AND WHEN CARE-GIVERS BECOME OVERWHELMED, THIS IS OFTEN WHERE THEY REACH OUT. THIS NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION SAID IT RECEIVES A LOT OF WHAT THEY REFER TO AS TIPPING POINT CALLS.>>Interview: WHEN THEY CALL US, THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CRISIS. IT REQUIRES A BIT OF TIME TO HELP THEM THINK IT THROUGH.>>Reporter: WONG CONSIDERS HERSELF FORTUNATE. HER FAMILY HELPS OUT AND HER MOTHER SPENDS FOUR DAYS A WEEK AT A TOP IN CENTRE. TWO DAYS PAID BY THE GOVERNMENT AND TWO DAYS SHE PAYS FOR.>>Interview: I DON’T KNOW HOW PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE FAMILY HELP CAN DO IT. OR PEOPLE WHO ARE WORKING FULL-TIME.>>Reporter: THE B.C. NEW GOVERNMENT ADMITS THE SYSTEM IS STRESSED. THE OFFICIALS WILL ACT ON THE REPORT’S RECOMMENDATION, STRENGTHENING THE SUPPORT AVAILABLE TO CARE-GIVERS. WITH AN AGING POPULATION, IT IS CLEAR THAT MORE PEOPLE WILL FIND THEMSELVES IN THIS VERY DIFFICULT ROLE.

A GIFT OF RAIN IS ONE I LIKE ABOUT A BRITISH BOY AT THE OUT BREAK OF WORLD WAR II. ANOTHER ONE, THE LIFE YOU CANNOT SEE ABOUT A BLIND GIRL IN FRANCE AND A GERMAN BOY. AGAIN AT THE OUTBROKE OF WORLD WAR II. THOSE TWO CAME TO MIND. THEY ARE FANTASTIC BOOKS. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE COUNTRY YOU REPORTED FROM. THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT STORIES THAT I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH, ALMOST 30 COUNTRIES NOW. I WILL SAY THE FIRST ONE THAT REALLY CAME TO MIND WAS NELSON MANDELA’S ELECTION IN SOUTH AFRICA IN 1994. IT WAS AN AMAZING STORY. THE WHOLE WORLD WAS WATCHING. THERE WAS SUCH PROMISE AND OPTIMISM AT A TIME. IT LEFT AN INDELIBLE IMPRESSION ON ME. DANIEL, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT TO WEAR TO WORK? IT IS WHAT I GRABBED OUT OF THE CLOSET. DO YOU FEEL IT IS MORE DIFFICULT FOR YOU AS A FEMALE JOURNALIST?

THE WHOLE AFGHAN STORY WHEN CANADIAN FORCES WERE IN COMBAT IN SOUTHERN AFGHANISTAN. THE SERIES OF STORIES THAT LEFT A BIG IMPRESSION ON ME. A DIFFICULT TASK — A DIFFICULT PLACE, BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. AMAZING PEOPLE. AND CANADA HAD SUCH A FOOTPRINT THERE. I DON’T THINK CANADIANS REALIZED WE WERE VERY WELL KNOWN IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF AFGHANISTAN FOR OUR WORK THERE. DAVID GREENWOOD WHEN YOU COVER A WAR ZONE, HOW DO YOU NOT START HELPING EVACUEES OR HAND OUT BLANKETS. IT IS AN EXCELLENT QUESTION. THERE IS A LINE. WE HOPE WE DO NOT CROSS. YOU KNOW STORIES ABOUT HUMANITY, THEY ARE ABOUT EMPATHY AND HUMAN EMOTIONS, IN SOME PARTS LIKE IN THE HAITI EARTHQUAKE WHERE 250,000 PEOPLE DIED, WE DID STEP UP AND HELP PEOPLE CONNECT TO OTHER PEOPLE. I REMEMBER A STORY ABOUT A CANADIAN WOMAN AND HER DAUGHTER WHO WERE LIVING IN HAITI IN PORT AU PRINCE, THEIR FAMILY WAS BACK IN MONTREAL, WE CONNECTED THEM TOGETHER. WE DID THAT SERVICE. IT WAS A STORY BUT IT WAS WHAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO DO. YOU CAN SEE THAT PLAYING OUT IN TEXAS WITH JOURNALISTS COMING ON PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP. IT IS A FINE LINE. IT CAN BE CROSSED. WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER THE GREATEST CHALLENGE TO TRUTH AND FACT IN THIS ERA OF FAKE NEWS. PEOPLE ACCUSING OF US FAKE NEWS. THAT IS THE GREATEST DANGER. I HAVE NEVER BEEN ASKED TO DO ANYTHING BUT FACTS. LOTS MORE ON THAT. I HAVE TO RUN BACK TO THE NEWS TONIGHT. [♪♪♪]>>Susan: WHEN DISASTER STRIKES. IT CAN BE A MOMENT OF TRUTH. PEOPLE PUSHED PAST THEIR LIMITS. AND OFTEN DISCOVER WHAT THEY ARE REALLY CAPABLE OF. AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO A WOMAN WHEN THE BRUTAL FORCE OF HARVEY WAS UNLEASHED ON HOUSTON. HERE IS HER STORY. IT ENDS WITH A TWIST.>>FRIDAY IT WAS RAINING HARD. THE RAIN WAS JUST — I HAD PREPARED MYSELF. SO WE COULD STAY IN. BUT I DIDN’T KNOW WE WERE GOING TO GET ALL THAT WATER. FRIDAY, IT WAS RAINING HARD. THEY TOLD US WE DID NOT HAVE TO EVACUATE. SO THEN, ON SATURDAY, IT STOPPED RAINING AND THEY HAD THE FOOTBALL GAME ON. THE FOOTBALL GAME AND THE FIGHT. SO ME AND MY FAMILY, WE DROVE OVER TO MY SISTER’S HOUSE TO WATCH THE FIGHT, I LEFT MY MOTHER-IN-LAW BEHIND. I KEPT CALLING AND CHECKING. WHEN I WENT TO CHECK ON MY MOTHER-IN-LAW, SHE CALLED ME AND SAID THE WATER IS COMING IN. MY MOM IS IN THE SAME APARTMENT COMPLEX. I CALLED MY MOTHER TO GO GET HER. SHE IS DISABLED. MY MOM IS A SMALL WOMAN. SHE GOT HER OUT OF THE HOUSE AND CALLED ME. SHE CALLED ME AND SAID MY HOUSE WAS GONE. WHEN I FOUND OUT MY HOUSE WAS GONE, WE STAYED AT MY SISTER’S HOUSE. WATER STARTED TO COME IN. WE TRIED TO LEAVE, BUT THERE WAS SO MUCH WATER, YOU COULD NOT DRIVE OR WALK. MY SON’S FRIEND MOTHER — THE APARTMENTS HAVE AN UP SIDE AND THE DOWNSIDE. MY SISTER IS ON THE DOWNSIDE. MY SISTER ON THE DOWNSIDE, WE HAD TO GO TO THE HIGHER LEVEL. THEY HAD — THIS IS GOING TO BE BAD. WE HAVE TO TRY TO GET OUT OF HERE. AND LATER ON THAT NIGHT, THE WATER STARTED TO COME UP AND THAT’S WHEN THE NEIGHBOURS CAME IN. WE DON’T WANT TO DIE. I WAS LIKE COME ON. IT WAS FIVE DIFFERENT FAMILIES. WE ALL WERE ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THE APARTMENT. THERE WAS A SMALL KITCHEN WINDOW. IN THE SMALL KITCHEN WINDOW, I HAD A DUMBBELL WEIGHT. TOOK THE HINGES OFF THE WINDOW, SOME OF THE MEN WERE BIG AND I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY COULD GET OUT. WE MADE SURE PEOPLE COULD GET OUT. WE TOOK THE CHILDREN OUT. I PUT A CHAIR ON THE OUTSIDE AND INSIDE TO STEP UP SO NOBODY HURTS THEMSELF. WE WENT ON THE ROOF. WE WAITED FOR SOMEBODY TO RESCUE US. IT TOOK THEM TO GET TO US 7 HOURS. IN THE MEANTIME, WE SAW DEAD BODIES FLOATING ACROSS THE WATER IN FRONT OF OUR FACE. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO STORMS IS KATERINA WATER ROSE FAST. THIS STORM WAS A STORM WHICH THE WATER CAME UP, IT STARTED TO COME — IT STARTED OFF SLOW AND THEN BECAME FAST AND IT WAS LIKE A — THE CURRENT WAS SO FAST. NOBODY COULD SWIM IN THE WATER. I DON’T THINK THE COAST GUARD COULD SWIM IN THAT WATER. I DON’T HAVE NO WORDS. RIGHT NOW, I AM JUST REALLY — I AM TRYING TO TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME. IT IS REALLY HARD. STARTING OVER, ESPECIALLY NOT KNOWING WHAT IS NEXT. I AM IN THE CONVENTION CENTRE AS YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME, LAYING ON A COT. I WISH I WAS IN WHAT NICE WARM BED WITH A HOT MEAL WITH MY BABIES AND MY HUSBAND AND MY FAMILY. I WANT TO BRING AWARENESS TO ANYBODY THAT IS OUT THERE GOING THROUGH SOMETHING, IF I CAN GET THROUGH A STORM, YOU CAN GET THROUGH ANYTHING.>>Susan: WHAT A STORY. STAY WITH US, WE ARE GOING ON A SHOPPING TRIP NEXT BECAUSE CANADA’S GROCERY BUSINESS IS IN FOR A REVOLUTION. The television show that
challenges all comers is still doing just that
30 years on. Front Page Challenge
is entering its 30th year broadcasting
in Canada. And last night at a glittering
reception in Ottawa, they remembered
and they celebrated those
memorable years. Dan Bjarnason
has prepared this report. Few Canadian institutions
have lasted as long as Front Page
Challenge. And to become more popular,
year after year, is something to
be envied. Bjarnason: That’s the opinion
of viewer at least. Expressed over a decade ago
and now after 30 years on the air, the show is more of
a institution than ever. Announcer: Tonight on
Front Page Challenge… Bjarnason: Hammered out in 1957,
in a producer’s living room, as a summer fill-in,
and in a business where programs fight
for breath and often die
after a few weeks, Front Page Challenge
is one of the most successful TV shows
in history. The program
developed the look of a miniature history of
the 20th century. There was
the silly. Let’s talk
about diamonds. [Zsa Zsa]
Let’s not talk about diamonds. Let me talk to you about your
ex-husband, George Sanders. Are you still
friends with him? Let’s talk
about diamonds. [laughing] Bjarnason: There was
the profound. My whole Christian background
has a great deal to do with my coming to this conclusion that
love and non-violence should be the regulating ideals in any
struggle for human dignity. Bjarnason: Perhaps the show’s
chief drawing card was, until
his death, an endearing scamp,
Gordon Sinclair. Did the personal event happening
to you, cause you to feel happy or joy or euph– eupher-ick-ick? Oops. No euph. [laughter] There wasn’t an ounce of
euphericky in it. [laughter] Bjarnason: On occasion the panel
goofed on the obvious. Well, let’s see
what’s left. The mumbly peg, I guess that
they don’t do that anymore. And this is a sport
where you run around? Is it boxing
by any chance? [laughs]
No, No. Swimming, swimming,
swimming. [laughter] Bjarnason: Not once
in four appearances did they
manage to guess… Gordie
Howe. Hooray! [applause; cheering] Bjarnason: One of the original
moderators 30-years ago, Alec Barris today
is the program’s writer. He recalls some early
disasters such as Winston Churchill’s
son, Randolph. Who was sort of nine sheets
in the wind by the time he got to
the studio. Went to the wrong
studio first. And when he finally got
to the right studio, he insisted that
somebody go out and get him
a bottle of whiskey, which he killed before the show
and he didn’t even need it. Bjarnason:
Then there was the defecting
Russian diplomat, Igor
Gouzenko. And then when he came
in he insisted that A) he had to have
his voice muffled – so it wouldn’t
be recognizable. B) he had to wear
the hood over his face – so he wouldn’t be
recognized. But the funny part came when he
saw that Fred Davis was in the make-up room
getting make-up on, he insisted he had to
have make-up on too even though he was
going to wear the hood. Bjarnason: It’s hard
to imagine now but the critics
panned the show, opening night,
30 years ago. A corpse they called it,
a long 30 minutes. The critics
were wrong. Go! Bjarnason: Last night
the taping of a one hour birthday spectacular. [applause] Critics has also predicted that
Front Page Challenge wouldn’t last after
Gordon Sinclair. The critics were
wrong again. Dan Bjarnason,

AS JACQUELINE HANSEN TELLS US, AMAZON IS TRYING TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU DO YOUR GROCERY SHOPPING.>>Reporter: MOST OF THE SHOPPERS AT THE GROCERY STORE ARE BUYING TODAY THE SAME WAY THEY ALWAYS HAVE, IN PERSON. ONE MAN ON A MISSION IS SHOPPING FOR SOMEONE ELSE. HE PICKS AND PAYS, PACKS, AND DELIVERS. WHATEVER CUSTOMERS ORDER THROUGH THE INSTAAPP. THE SERVICE IS A CREATION OF THE ENTREPRENEUR GLEIZER.>>IT MAKES SENSE TO PLACE ORDERS AS OPPOSED TO GOING TO THE STORY AND CARRY STUFF.>>IMAGINE GETTING ALL THE GROCERY YOU NEEDS…>>Reporter: AMAZON SEES THE POTENTIAL DEMAND. IT OPERATES AMAZON FRESH GROCERY DELIVERY IN TWO DOZEN CITIES IN THE U.S., EUROPE AND JAPAN. ITS TAKEOVER OF WHOLE FOODS IS A WAY TO RAMP THAT UP.>>Interview: THEY ARE LOOKING AT INCREASING VOLUME.

AND ONE TORONTO-AREA GROCER BOUGHT AND OPERATES A DELIVERY SERVICE. GROCERY GATEWAY. THE GROCERS WILL FEEL PRESSURE TO DO MORE AND COMPETE ON PRICES. AMAZON IS NOT GET INTO GROCERIES FOR THE MONEY, SOME SAID. INSTEAD THEY WANT CONSUMERS TO BUY EVEN FURTHER INTO AMAZON’S ENTIRE ECOSYSTEM. AND TRADE THEIR PHYSICAL SHOPPING CARTS FOR A VIRTUAL ONE. FOR EVERYTHING. JACQUELINE HANSEN, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>OF COURSE, PRICES DO MATTER, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER HOW MUCH WE ALL SPEND ON FOOD. ACCORDING TO STATISTICS CANADA, IN 2015, THE AVERAGE HOUSEHOLDS SPENT $6,126 ON GROCERIES. $510 A MONTH. OR $117 A WEEK. THOSE NUMBERS DID NOT INCLUDE RESTAURANT VISITS WHICH ADDED ANOTHER $2,500 TO THE YEAR’S FOOD BILL.>>>COMING UP, A COUPLE MILLION CAN BUY A LOT OF GROCERIES. THE JACKPOT IS CLAIMED IN AN EPIC GAME OF ♪ [CBC News theme] Reporter: It was middle
class Canada on wheels. A convoy of buses carrying
hundreds of home owners protesting against Canada’s
soaring interest rates. Most of the protestors face
crushing mortgages of more than 20 per cent. Some face losing their homes
all together. All of them are angry. I’m angry and I’m helpless. I just feel helpless, I mean
what are we going to do? I’m just sick and tired of this
kind of a government. Reporter: Vince and Linda White
are typical. This month their mortgage
payments go from $650
to more than $1,000. I think something has to be
done about it. I think it’s ridiculous. Too many people are losing
their homes. Reporter: As the so called
“Convoy of Anger” rolled on towards Ottawa, federal Liberal MPs were
meeting in special caucus. Like the protesters,
their message was the federal government must do
something for home owners. [crowd cheering] When the buses arrived on
Parliament Hill, they were met by opposition
politicians, but there was no one there from
the Trudeau government. [crowd chanting]: We want
Trudeau! We want Trudeau! Reporter: The demonstrators
went ahead and told their stories anyway. I’m sick of an economic policy that tells me that after
five years of blood and sweat and tears that I can’t have
my home anymore? I want to
know why! Why can’t
I have my home? Reporter: Later a small group
was allowed to meet Housing Minister Paul Cosgrove. All we are getting from
you people are shrugs,
“well, tighten your belts”. Well we’ve done it as tight
as we can do it. We’re the people
you’re working for. We put you
in office, and believe me,
we can take you out. We don’t
want promises. We want people who are
out of their homes now to have
action now. Not after
the budget! Not after promises
but now! False
prophets! I don’t
know what the particular
response will be but I’ll tell you that
the government will meet its commitment in
the speech from the throne when we started out as
a Liberal government last year that we will not stand by
and see large scale foreclosure of peoples’
homes in this country. Reporter: As the Liberal
caucus broke up, MPs emerged
smiling. They’d been told help was
coming for home owners. And Cosgrove announced that
he’ll ask Canadian banks and trust companies to stop
foreclosing on Canadians, at least until after
next month’s budget. I know that
the companies have said that they’ll look to
all devices that they can to assist people
to maintain home ownership. Reporter: Prime Minister Trudeau
left the caucus meeting apparently
confident that he’d cooled out his angry
backbenchers. The angry home owners will
have to await the outcome of a special two day
cabinet meeting which begins
tomorrow, and the resumption of
parliament next month before they learn the extent
of government plans to deal with the interest
rate’s crunch. ♪ [CBC News theme]>>They called my dad the “King of Griffintown.” ♪ [dramatic] When I was a kid there was going on – the bikers and the mob, gangs – and it was bad.>>You’re nothing like him. ♪ ♪ [fists pound punching bag]>>What are we doing here, man? ♪ ♪>>I’m just reminding you who you are.
