>>Announcer: THIS IS CBC “HERE AND NOW”. [♪♪♪]>>Anthony: SOCCER TEAMS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE IN ST. JOHN’S THIS WEEK FOR THE NATIONAL SENIOR SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIPS. THE BIG MATCH BETWEEN THE LOCAL MEN’S TEAM AND ALBERTA IS JUST ABOUT TO GET UNDERWAY. WE ARE LIVE TONIGHT FROM KING GEORGE THE FIFTH PARK.>>Anthony: GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME. I’M ANTHONY GERMAIN. WE ARE STARTING TONIGHT WITH NEW PICTURES FROM THE SOUTH COAST WHERE UP TO 2 MILLION SALMON MAY HAVE DIED. THE FISH, FOOD, AND ALLIED WORKERS UNION RELEASE THESE PHOTOS THIS AFTERNOON. THEY WERE TAKEN BY CONCERNED FISH HARVESTERS. YOU CAN SEE THE SALMON FAT AND DEBRIS WASHING UP ON SHORE HIS WHERE THEY GET THEIR LOBSTER. THEY SAY D.F.O. AND THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT MUST STEP UP TO PROTECT THE MARINE ECOSYSTEM AND PREVENT ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION. THE PROVINCIAL N.D.P. IS CALLING FOR AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO THE MAJOR SALMON MASS ON THE SOUTH COAST. CALLING IT AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER. IN A LETTER ISSUED THIS MORNING, THE N.D.P. CRITICIZED JURY BURNEY SAYING HE IS MORE OF A CHEERLEADER FOR THE INDUSTRY THAN SOMEONE EXERCISING OVERSIGHT. THE N.D.P. IS ALSO DEMANDING ANSWERS. IT WANTS TO KNOW EXACT TIMELINES AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT, WHO WAS NOTIFIED, AND AS WELL AS THE IMPACT ON WILD SALMON AS WELL AS FISH PROCESSORS.>>MINISTER IS SOUNDING MORE AND MORE LIKE A CHEERLEADER FOR AN INDUSTRY RATHER THAN A PERSON WHO SHOULD BE EXERCISING OVERSIGHT. CERTAINLY WE DON’T WANT THIS IN THE HANDS OF THE INDUSTRY BUT WE WANT A TOTALLY INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION.>>WE NEED TO SUSTAIN PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN THE INDUSTRY IF AT ALL POSSIBLE. MR. BURNS’ PERFORMANCE GIVING CONTRADICTORY AND CONFUSING ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IS MISSING IN ACTION ON THIS. YOU FIND — HE FOUND OUT ABOUT THE DIE OFF WHICH APPARENTLY HAPPENED IN AUGUST, ON THE 2nd T MAINTAINED RADIO SILENCE UNTIL THE END OF THE MONTH. WE HAVE ONLY NOW BECOME PUBLICLY AWARE OF ALL THIS IN THE LAST NINE OR 10 DAYS.>>Anthony: GARRETT BERRY SPOKE WITH A FISHERIES MINISTER TODAY AND HE JOINS US LIVE FROM OUR NEWSROOM IN GANDER. GARRETT, WHAT WAS BURNS’ RESPONSE TO THE N.D.P. LETTER?>>THEY TOLD ME TODAY THAT THERE ALREADY ARE THIRD-PARTY ANALYSES TAKING PLACE. TWO GROUPS ARE INVOLVED. THE ATLANTIC VETERINARY COLLEGE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF P.E.I. AND THE RESEARCH AND PRODUCTIVITY COUNCIL LABORATORY IN NEW BRUNSWICK. THESE GROUPS THAT ARE INVOLVED ARE ALREADY SENDING BACK RESULTS TO GOVERNMENT. THEY HAVE STUDIED FISH SAMPLES FROM THE AGRICULTURE SIGHTS ON THE SOUTH COAST AND BURNS SAID TO THE ANALYSIS DONE IN P.E.I. AS PART OF THE REASON HE IS PUBLICLY CONCLUDING THAT WARM WATER AND LOW OXYGEN CAUSED THE SALMON DIE OFF.>>THERE ARE STUDIES, THERE IS EXAMINATION PROVIDED THAT CONCLUSION. IT WASN’T US. WE DID NOT BELIEVE — WE DID NOT LEAD, WE DID NOT SUGGEST. WE PROVIDED THE INFORMATION TO THEM AND THEY PROVIDED THAT ANALYSIS.>>Reporter: DID YOU PUBLISH THAT ANALYSIS?>>OF COURSE,.>>WE WANT TO CONTINUE ON. THEY WILL BE ENGAGED IN THIS PROCESS WHILE WE STILL HAVE TISSUE SAMPLES. WE HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH PUBLISHING THAT WHATSOEVER.>>Reporter: JUST ABOUT AN HOUR AGO, WE GOT SOME MORE INFORMATION ON THESE GROUPS FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF FISHERIES AND LAND RESOURCES. THE DEPARTMENT SAYS THEY ARE REGULARLY HIRED AND THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS PICKING UP THE BILL HERE. WHILE THESE GROUPS TO PROVIDE ANALYSIS BASED ON WHAT SAMPLES THEY GET, ONLY VETERINARIANS INSIDE THE PROVINCE ARE MAKING ANY FINAL DETERMINATIONS ABOUT WHAT KILLED THE FISH. THE DEPARTMENT SAID A FILE REPORT WILL BE COMPILED AND WILL BE EVENTUALLY PERMANENTLY RELEASED. AND FOR HIS PART, HE SAID THAT HE WILL WAIT FOR THE ENTIRE PROCESS TO UNFOLD BEFORE MAKING ANY OF THE ANALYSIS PUBLIC.>>Anthony: GARRETT, THOSE GROUPS, THE SCIENTISTS ARE LOOKING AT THE CAUSES. DID YOU LEARN ANYTHING ABOUT WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THIS CLEANUP?>>Reporter: THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT DOES HAVE A ROLE HERE THEY CONTROL THE LEASES AND LICENSES IN THE PROVINCE, BUT BURNS SAID THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY FOR OCEAN ENVIRONMENT CONCERNS. HE DID SAY TODAY THAT D.F.O. IS ON-SITE.>>I HAVE NO DIFFERENT EXPECTATION THEN IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS IN VIOLATION OF FEDERAL REGULATION OR AUTHORITIES, THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL INDEED LAY CHARGES. THEY ARE ON-SITE NOW DOING WHAT THE ASSESSMENTS THAT ARE REQUIRED AND IT WOULD BE OUR EXPECTATION THAT IF THERE’S ANYTHING THAT IS UNTOWARD, THOSE CHARGES WILL BE LAID. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY SPECIFIC EVIDENCE AT THIS POINT IN TIME THAT I HAVE BEEN MADE AWARE OF THAT THERE IS AN IMPACT ON FISH HABITAT OR WILD FISH STOCK.>>Reporter: THIS PROMISE — THIS PROVINCE DOES HAVE ENVIRONMENT TO PRODUCTION REGULATIONS OF ITS OWN. GENERALLY, THOSE PROTECTIONS AND REGULATIONS BEEN THE DUMPING OF HARMFUL SUBSTANCES INTO THE WATER, INTO THE ENVIRONMENT. I ASKED JURY BURNS TODAY JUST WHAT WAS IN THE. SUBSTANCE THAT WE HAVE SEEN FLOWING INTO FORTUNE BAY. HE SAYS AT THIS POINT HE UNDERSTANDS IT IS PINK SALMON PIGMENT, PROCESS THAT COULD BE SOME ORGANIC MATERIALS IN IT AS WELL.>>Anthony: THAT IS GARRETT BERRY REPORTING LIVE FROM OUR NEWSROOM. STILL ON THE STORY, AND OCEANOGRAPHER IS DISPUTING THAT CLIMATE CHANGE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR WATER CONDITIONS THAT KILLED FARM TO SALMON ON THE SOUTH COAST. COMPANY SAID THE INCIDENT WAS A RESULT OF WARMER OCEAN TEMPERATURES BROUGHT ABOUT BY CLIMATE CHANGE, NO DIFFERENT THAN IN AGRICULTURE WHERE CROPS CAN BE IMPACTED BY FROST OR DROUGHT. THAT IS NOT AN EXPO NATION THAT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY SCIENTISTS ARE BUYING. CHRIS O’NEILL YATES SPOKE TO HIM THIS AFTERNOON. WE ARE JOINED NOW LIVE FROM OUR NEWSROOM. CHRIS, WHAT DID THE PROFESSOR SAY?>>Reporter: HE SAYS THAT THE WHOLE IDEA THAT THESE FISH DIED BECAUSE OF SOME CLIMATE CHANGE EVENT JUST DOESN’T WASH WITH HIM HE CALLS IT A BIT OF SMOKE AND MIRRORS. HE SAYS THE FACT THAT THERE MAY HAVE BEEN A FLUCTUATION OF A DEGREE OR TWO, TEMPERATURE IN THAT AREA WOULDN’T BE THAT UNUSUAL, BUT TO HAVE THAT SPECIFIC INFORMATION IN THAT AREA, THAT THERE WAS CLIMATE CHANGE GOING ON, HE IS JUST REALLY NOT BUYING IT. HE HAS A LOT OF QUESTIONS HIMSELF. IS THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE TO SHOW HIM THE SPECIFIC INFORMATION, THE SPECIFIC READINGS IN THAT AREA BECAUSE HE SAID A COUPLE OF THINGS HERE ARE REALLY BEING PLAYED. THEY HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT THESE FISH DIED BECAUSE OF THE DEPRIVATION OF OXYGEN, BUT LINKING THAT THE CLIMATE CHANGE IS JUST A STRETCH.>>DID THEY DESIGN THE KITCHEN TO BE TOO SHALLOW OR DO THEY PUT TOO MANY FISH IN, NOT REALLY KNOWING THAT SURFACE TEMPERATURES OF 20 DEGREES WERE NOT UNCOMMON IN THAT REGION? SO WE DON’T REALLY KNOW, BUT WE HAVE TO TRUST THEIR INTERPRETATION WITHOUT SHOWING US THE DATA TO CONFIRM WHAT REALLY DID HAPPEN. THAT COULD BE COMPLETING TWO ISSUES AT THE SAME TIME. THEY WANT US TO SYMPATHIZE WITH THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE AT THE MERCIES MERCY HIS OF THE ENVIRONMENT, AND I GET THAT BECAUSE THAT IS A PROBLEM FOR ANYONE WORKING ON THE OCEAN, BUT THE PARTICULAR ENVIRONMENTAL TEMPERATURES THAT WE SEE THIS SUMMER DON’T SEEM SO FAR OUT OF THE RANGE AS TO BE SHOCKING OR SURPRISING. SO THEN MY CONCLUSION IS THEY DIDN’T DEFINE THE SYSTEM DESIGNED FOR THE PARTICULARLY — PARTICULAR ENVIRONMENT THEY WERE WORKING AT.>>Reporter: HE SAYS THERE ARE SOME BIGGER QUESTIONS FOR THAT. WHAT KIND OF OVERSIGHT WAS HAPPENING AT THIS OPERATION BEFORE THIS HAPPENED? HE TALKS ABOUT A DESIGN PROBLEM. DID ALL THE FISH GO TO THE PROBLEM — GO TO THE BOTTOM? HE IS ALSO LOOKING AT THE EFFECTS NOW. WE’RE NOT GETTING MUCH INFORMATION, NO INFORMATION ON WHAT THE EFFECTS OF ALL OF THIS COULD BE. IT RAISES A LOT OF QUESTIONS FOR HIM ABOUT WHAT EXACTLY WENT ON HERE, AND OF COURSE, IT RAISES A LOT OF QUESTIONS FOR US. WE ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY FINDING INFORMATION FROM THE TWO FEDERAL BODIES THAT OVERSEE THIS KIND OF THING. THEY ARE NOT GIVING US AN INTERVIEW.>>Anthony: WE WILL RETURN TO THE SALMON COVERAGE IN ABOUT 25 MINUTES.>>>GREEN PARTY CANDIDATES WEIGH IN ON THE FEDERAL LIBERALS’ PROMISED TO CHANGE AQUACULTURE POLICY FOR CANADA’S WEST COAST, BUT NOT HERE. AND WE WILL TELL YOU ABOUT A NEW JOB POSTING FOR THE SEVEN FARM ON THE SOUTH COAST. WE WILL BRING YOU AN EXCERPT FROM AN “LONDON SEEK LOCAL EPISODE. [♪♪♪]>>Ashley: CHILLY BUT BEAUTIFUL START TO THE DAY FOR MOST OF US. TEMPERATURES IN THE SINGLE DIGITS. 7 DEGREES FOR ST. JOHN’S. NOT TOO CHILE. 3° FOR CORNER BROOK. NAIN SITTING AROUND 6 DEGREES. TEMPERATURES RECOVERED QUITE NICELY. BACK FINALLY TO THE SEASONAL TEMPERATURES THAT I HAVE BEEN HINTING AT FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS. NINE WAS THE AFTERNOON HI IN MY KOVIC. IF WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE SATELLITE AND RADAR, NOTHING. I WILL TELL YOU HOW LONG THESE CLEAR SKIES WILL STICK AROUND, COMING UP.>>Anthony: WORK ON THE HOSPITAL IN CORNER BROOK IS MOVING ALONG. CONCRETE IS BEING POURED AND WORK ON THE FOUNDATION IS NOW WELL UNDERWAY. THE HOSPITAL WILL BE A SEVEN-STORY, 600,000 SQUARE-FOOT FACILITY. HEAVY EQUIPMENT IS CLEARING THE FOOTPRINT WHICH WILL BE ABOUT 505 — 500 FEET WIDE. TRADESPEOPLE ARE WORKING ON THE PROJECT. THAT WORK WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE WINTER. A SECOND LOCAL JOB FAIR FOR MORE WORKERS IS BEING PLANNED FOR THE NEW YEAR. THE HOSPITAL IS EXPECTED TO TAKE FOUR MORE YEARS TO BE COMPLETED.>>>THE — A GOVERNMENT-SPONSORED PROJECT HAS A STUDY OF WHETHER THE BEEF INDUSTRY CAN BE EXPANDED. PEOPLE IN THE PROVINCE CAN CONSUME 14 MILLION KILOGRAMS OF BEEF PER YEAR AND MORE THAN 99% OF THAT IS IMPORTED. TWO YEARS AGO, THE PROVINCE STARTED WORKING WITH LOCAL BEEF PRODUCERS TO INCREASE THE BREEDING STOCK HERE. AS PART OF THE PROJECT, HERDS OF CATTLE WERE PLACED IN FARMS IN SPRINGDALE. AT 25 CALVES HAVE BEEN BORN SINCE THIS PROJECT AGAIN, AND TODAY, LAND RESOURCES MINISTER, BETTER IN THIS DEPARTMENT THEN IT FISHERIES THESE DAYS, HE VISITED ONE OF THOSE FARMS. HE CHECKED IN WITH THE OWNER TO SEE HOW THE RESEARCH WORK IS GOING.>>WE THINK WE CAN GET INTO THE MARKETS. AND TRY TO GET INTO SOME LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND GET INTO THE BIGGER FOOD CHAIN, FOR SURE AND INTO GROCERY STORES.>>Anthony: THE LIBERAL M.P. FOR SAINT JONES SOUTH MOUNT PEARL IS TAKING TIME OFF THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN. ON TWITTER TODAY, HE IS SPENDING TIME WITH HIS FATHER SEAMUS SENIOR WHO IS FACING A SERIOUS HEALTH CHALLENGE. HIS DAD IS A FORMER JUDGE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR. IN HIS TWEET, HE THANKED THE AMAZING STAFF AT THE HEALTH SCIENCE CENTRE, AS WELL AS HIS CAMPAIGN TEAM AND HIS VOLUNTEERS>>>A FORMER ACCOUNTANT AT A PRIVATE SCHOOL IN ST. JOHN’S HAS BEEN SENTENCED TO PRISON TIME AFTER STEALING MORE THAN HALF A MILLION DOLLARS FROM HER EMPLOYER. KIM STACK APOLOGIZE FOR WHAT SHE DID BEFORE LEAVING PROVINCIAL COURT IN HANDCUFFS. MARK QUINN REPORTS.>>Reporter: KIMBERLEY STACK APPEARED IN COURT FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY. SHE WAS THERE TO HEAR A JOINT SENTENCING SUBMISSION FROM THE CROWN AND HER DEFENCE LAWYER. THEY DETAILED HOW SHE TOOK MORE THAN $500,000 FROM SAINT BONAVENTURE SCHOOL OVER ALMOST FIVE YEARS UNTIL 2018. SHE WAS THE ONLY PERSON WITH ACCESS TO THE SCHOOL’S ACCOUNT AND G.E. TRANSFERRED MONEY FROM IT TO HER OWN ACCOUNTS. SHE DID THAT ALMOST 350 TIMES AND FORGED DOCUMENTS TO HIDE IT. LAWYER SAID SHE HAD NO ADDICTION ISSUES BUT WAS USING THE MONEY TO LIVE A LIFE SHE COULDN’T AFFORD. SHE SPENT THE MONEY ON LUXURY ITEMS LIKE PURSES AND TRAVEL, INCLUDING TWO TRIPS TO DISNEY. ACCOUNTS AT HER ACTIONS HAD AN ASTRONOMICAL IMPACT ON THE SCHOOL, BRINGING IT TO ITS KNEES TO SIMPLY MEET PAYROLL. THE JUDGE SENTENCED HER TO THREE YEARS IN PRISON AND ORDERED HER TO REPAY ALL THE MONEY SHE TOOK. SHE APOLOGIZED TO THE COURT SAYING SHE WAS SORRY FOR WHAT SHE DID AND SORRY FOR THE PEOPLE SHE HARMED. SHE SAID SHE LOVED THE COMMUNITY LIKE IT WAS FAMILY. HER LAWYERS SAID SHE WILL PROBABLY NEVER WORK AS AN ACCOUNTANT AGAIN. IN COURT, SHE SAID SHE HOPES TO REBUILD HER LIFE.>>Anthony: TO AN UPDATE NOW ON THE FIRE IN SOUTHERN LABRADOR WHICH LEFT RESIDENTS OF CHARLOTTETOWN IN THE DARK. ACCORDING TO POLICE, THAT FIRE RIPPED THROUGH THE DIESEL PLANT IN CHARLOTTETOWN. IT WAS NOT A SUSPICIOUS FIRE. IT HAPPENED MONDAY MORNING AND INVESTIGATORS WITH N.L. HYDRO WERE ON SITE TODAY. FOR NOW, RESIDENTS OF CHARLOTTETOWN AND VINCENT’S ARE MY GETTING POWER FROM MOBILE GENERATORS. THE PLANT WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED IN THE SPRING.>>>WE NOW KNOW WHEN BASKETBALL WILL RESUME IN ST.

ZACH MAC [♪♪♪]>>Anthony: WE WILL GET TO OUR BEAUTIFUL WEATHER IN A MOMENT, BUT PRETTY COOL VIDEO TO SHOW YOU FOR YOU SCIENCE LOVERS. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. YOU WILL BE SEEING WEIGHTLESS SAND. SEE HOW THAT ROLLS AROUND LIKE WATER? THAT SOIL IS FROM SANDY COVE BEACH. IS THE FIRST TIME THE SOIL HAS BEEN STUDIED IN THIS WAY. IT IS PART OF A SLEW OF EXPERIMENTS THAT ASTRONAUTS ARE CARRYING OUT IN OTTAWA THIS WEEK THE WOMAN BEHIND THIS ONE IS 25 -YEAR-OLD BETHANY DOWN OR FROM ST. JOHN’S. SHE WORKS FOR THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY. HER PARENTS ARE VERY PROUD WATERS. SHE HAS SPENT MANY SUMMERS IN SANDY COVE AND I CAN ATTEST TO THAT. SHE LOVES THAT PLACE AND THIS EXPERIMENT BECAUSE IT IS A SPECIAL PLACE. WE APPRECIATE YOU SHARING THAT WITH US, BETHANY.>>Ashley: NOT SO BAD.>>Anthony: THAT IS A COOL LITTLE JOB.>>Ashley: I WOULD SAY, FOR SURE>>Anthony: RIGHT. IT WAS PRETTY — IT WAS A PRETTY GOOD DAY.>>Ashley: IT WAS. MOST OF THE DAY-TO-DAY ACROSS MOST AREAS, IT WAS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. NOT A CLOUD IN THE SKY FOR MOST OF US. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS PICTURE. THIS IS FROM THIS WEEKEND. IT IS HARVEST TIME. THIS PHOTO WAS SHARED WITH US. IT IS TIME TO GET CARROTS OUT OF THE GROUND.>>Anthony: LOOK AT THAT GIGANTIC RUSSIAN SUNFLOWER. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL SUNFLOWER.>>Ashley: THOSE TEMPERATURES, THOUGH, A BEAUTIFUL AFTERNOON HERE IN ST. JOHN’S. WE ARE SITTING AROUND SEASONAL, SITTING AROUND 12 DEGREES. THE RECORD IS 20 DEGREES IN 1994 AND THE RECORD LOW WAS – ZERO. PRETTY FAR FROM THAT. THIS IS WHERE WE ARE SITTING AS YOU LEFT THE HOUSE THIS MORNING. OUR SUNSET TONIGHT, 6:26 P.M. AT LEAST WE WILL BE SEEING PLENTY OF SUNSHINE AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE PLENTY OF SUNSHINE AS WE HEAD TO THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. HERE IS WHERE WE SAT LITTLE BIT EARLIER TODAY. 10 DEGREES FOR CHURCHILL FALLS. TWELVE IN NAIN WITH DOUBLE-DIGIT TEMPERATURES. YOU ARE WELL ABOVE SEASONAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. TEMPERATURES NOT FAR OFF FROM THAT EXCEPT UP THERE NAIN WHERE YOU DROP DOWN TO 6 DEGREES. THOSE WINDS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THEN WHAT WE HAVE SEEN. A LITTLE BIT STRONGER UP TOWARDS ST. ANTHONY. IN HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, SEEING WINDS OUT OF THE NORTHWEST ON 26 KM/H. AS HIS BIG RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE CONTINUES TO DOMINATE AND MOVE FURTHER TOWARDS US, WE WILL SEE THOSE WINDS EASE AND THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO CLIMB OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS WELL. CERTAINLY GOOD NEWS THERE. OVERNIGHT TONIGHT, LOWER LYING AREAS DIPPING DOWN MAYBE EVEN BELOW ZERO. FIFTY-FOUR ST. JOHN’S. THOSE WINDS WILL EASE. PRETTY LIGHT. 3° FOR CORNER BROOK, BUT NOTHING BUT CLEAR SKIES OVERNIGHT TONIGHT FOR MOST OF US. LAB CITY GOING DOWN TO -1 AND WINDS WILL BE OUT OF THE WEST SOUTHWEST AT ABOUT 10 TO 15 KM/H THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL DOMINATE. WE MIGHT SEE A FEW CLOUDS IN PLAY. NOTHING TOO CRAZY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON, THOUGH. PLENTY OF SUNSHINE AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE MOVES IN. TEMPERATURES ARE SITTING IN THE TEENS AGAIN. IT SHOULD BE SITTING AROUND 12 DEGREES AS THE AFTERNOON HIGH FOR ST. JOHN’S. TWELVE IN BONAVISTA. HEADING TOWARDS ESSENTIAL, SIMILAR TEMPERATURES. TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB EVEN MORE AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. WINDS ARE GENERALLY LIGHT ACROSS THE BOARD. LAB CITY IT LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE THE WARMEST. 16 DEGREES TOMORROW WITH WEST, SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS. ANOTHER DOUBLE-DIGIT DAY FOR NAIN. LOTS OF SUNSHINE. DEFINITELY GOOD NEWS THERE. AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE WEEKEND, THAT IS WHEN THE NEXT WEATHER MAKER WILL MOVE IN. WE WILL HAVE ALL THOSE DETAILS COMING UP. ANTHONY?>>Anthony: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, ASHLEY. AS YOU HEARD FROM ASHLEY, NOT BAD OUT THERE. A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT TO BE OUTSIDE. CAROLYN STOKES TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE GOOD WEATHER WERE SOCCER STARS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE GATHERING. CAROLYN?>>Carolyn: YEAH, ANTHONY. I WOULD SAY THIS IS PROBABLY PERFECT SOCCER PLAYING WEATHER RIGHT NOW. THERE IS NOT A BREATH OF WIND. IT IS JUST LOVELY OUT HERE. LOTS OF ACTION ON THE FIELD RIGHT NOW. THE LOCAL MEN’S TEAM IS PLAYING AGAINST ALBERTA. SO FAR ALBERTA IS WINNING 2-0. WE ARE ABOUT 20 MINUTES INTO THE GAME, BUT IT IS NOT JUST THE MEN ON THE FIELD THIS WEEK. THE NATIONAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP IS ALSO ON THE LINE THIS PROVINCE ACTUALLY HAS TWO TEAMS COMPETING FOR THE JUBILEE TROPHY. EARLIER TODAY, ZACH GAUDI CHECKED THEM OUT.>>Reporter: ST. JOHN’S’ TEAM TOOK ON ONTARIO IN THE OPENING MATCH OF THE NATIONAL SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP. BEAUTIFUL WEATHER MADE FOR A GREAT AFTERNOON ON THE PITCH AND IN THE STANDS. THIS CROWD WOULD BE HERE RAIN OR SHINE. MANY HERE ARE WATCHING THEIR DAUGHTERS PLAY AND THEY KNOW HOW MUCH WORK WENT INTO THIS MOMENT.>>IT IS YEAR-ROUND. THEY ARE TRAINING ALL WINTER, PRACTISING A COUPLE TIMES, PROBABLY THREE TIMES A WEEK, PLUS THE MAJORITY OF THEIR TEAM ARE PLAYING FOR THE MEMORIAL SEAHAWKS. THEY PLATE UNIVERSITY SOCCER, AS WELL.>>I’M STOKED. I CANNOT WAIT.>>Reporter: GETTING AN EARLY LOOK AT THE COMPETITION IS MALORY HARRIS. THIS PROVINCE’S PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONS. HARRIS IS JUST TWO GOALS SHY OF THE ALL-TIME RECORD, BUT EVEN FOR A VETERAN PLAYING IN FRONT OF THE HOME FANS IS SPECIAL.>>BACK IN THE DAY WHEN I STARTED WE HAD WE WOULD COME. WE ARE THIRD AND WE ARE FOURTH AND NOW WE ARE GOING FOR GOLD. THAT GIVES THEM MORE HOPES FOR THEM GROWING UP. THEY LOOK UP TO US. WE ARE ROLE MODELS IN A SENSE.>>THOSE YOUNG PLAYERS COULD GET SOME INFORMATION AND PICK UP SOME MOVES FROM THE BEST IN THE GAME.>>WE ARE HOPING TO GET OUT AND WATCH IT NOW. THEIR EVENING GAMES AND WEEKENDS WE WANT TO HELP THEM EVOLVE IN THEIR GAMES AND SHOW THEM HOW THE GAME IS SUPPOSED TO BE PLAYED. YOU SEE IT ON TV, BUT YOU DON’T GET AN APPRECIATION FOR HOW MUCH IS SEEN HERE.>>Reporter: WITH TWO HOME TEAMS TO CHEER FOR, THERE IS NO BETTER TIME TO BE DOWN AT THE FIELD.>>Carolyn: RIGHT NOW IS AN EXCELLENT TIME TO BE DOWN AT KING GEORGE THE FIFTH PARK. YOU CAN SEE SOME FOLKS IN THE STANDS THERE WATCHING THE MEN’S LOCAL TEAM PLAY AGAINST ALBERTA. I DO HAVE THE RESULTS FROM THOSE WOMEN’S GAMES EARLIER TODAY. I HAVE THE SCORES HERE AT LEAST. HOLY CROSS ACTUALLY LOST TO ALBERTA, 3-1. AND THEY TIED WITH SCARBOROUGH 1 -1, BUT THERE ARE MANY MORE GAMES LEFT TO PLAY. COMING UP, WE WILL SPEAK TO THOSE PLAYERS AND ALSO WITH THE FOLKS THAT HELPED MAKE THIS TOURNAMENT HAPPEN. [♪♪♪]>>IT’S AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER IN QUITE A BIG ONE. YOU HAVE 2 MILLION SALMON AND AT 20 MOUNDS — 20 POUNDS EACH, IT’S A HUGE BIOMASS A VOICE DOWN THERE.>>Anthony: NEXT, TWO GREEN PARTY CANDIDATES WEIGH IN ON THE SOUTH COAST SALMON CLEAN UP AND DISCUSS THE DOUBLE STANDARD A FEDERAL LIBERAL AQUACULTURE PROMISES. [♪♪♪] [♪♪♪]>>Anthony: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE AND NOW.” WE HAVE HAD SOME PROVINCIAL POLITICAL REACTION TO WHAT IS GOING ON WITH AQUACULTURE IN THE SOUTH COAST. WE WILL GET SOMETHING NOW FROM THE GREEN PARTY CANDIDATES IN OUR PROVINCE ABOUT AQUACULTURE. THE GREEN PARTY IS A FIRST PARTY TO HAVE A POSITION ON MOVING AQUACULTURE TOWARDS LAND-BASED. DAVID, LET ME START WITH YOU. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THE SOUTH COAST?>>IT IS HORRIBLE. 2 MILLION DID SALMON — 2 MILLION DEAD SALMON. PART OF IT IS CAUSED BY OCEAN TEMPERATURE RISE WHICH WILL ONLY GET WORSE WITH CLIMATE CHANGE, AND IT IS JUST A CATASTROPHE.>>Anthony: THE COMPANY IS POINTING THIS OUT. GREG MALONE, YOUR THOUGHTS?>>IT IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER AND QUITE A BIG ONE. YOU HAVE 2 MILLION SALMON AT 20 POUNDS EACH OR WHATEVER IT IS , IT IS A HUGE BIOMASS OF WASTE DOWN THERE. I UNDERSTAND THE PROTECTIVE SUITS THAT THEY ARE WEARING TO GO IN AND DEAL WITH IT ARE DISINTEGRATING AND PEOPLE HAVE TO BE HOSPITALIZED. THAT IS A TOXIC MESS. IT IS QUITE TOXIC, AND ACCORDING TO OUR PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT, IT IS NO PROBLEM. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A PROBLEM. THIS IS THE GOVERNMENT THAT HAD TO BE DRAGGED TO COURT BY CONCERNED CITIZENS TO DO A PROPER ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT OF THE BIG SALMON FARM THEY ARE PLANNING PORK — FOR PLACENTIA BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT TO OBEY OR FOLLOW THEIR OWN MINIMUM ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE PEOPLE IN THE AREA. THEY DIDN’T WANT TO DO IT. THEY HAD TO BE DRAGGED TO COURT TO DO IT. THEY ARE NOT FORTHCOMING ON THE ENVIRONMENT. THEY ARE ENEMIES OF THE ENVIRONMENT. THERE’S SO MUCH OF THE NEWFOUNDLAND WILDLIFE THAT HAS BEEN DESTROYED UNDER THEIR WATCH WHETHER IT IS GOLD MINES ARE SALMON FARMS OR WHATEVER ELSE, THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. THOSE DAYS ARE OVER. THIS SALMON FARM, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN UNEMPLOYED IN THAT AREA FROM THE PENINSULA ALREADY — ALL THE WAY OVER TO STEPHENVILLE WHERE THEY HAVEN’T HAD JOBS BECAUSE I CANNOT CONTROL THE PERNICIOUS ANEMIA, THE INFECTIOUS SALMON ANEMIA. THEY ARE SELLING THE SICK FISH SAME AS THE GOOD FISH. I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG THE MARKETS WILL BEAR OF THAT. THE MARKETS DO NOT LOOK GOOD FOR OCEAN-BASED OPEN NET FARMS. OBVIOUSLY SPEE AND ALL VESELY AND THE GREEN PARTY, YOU’RE NUMBER ONE RAISON D’ÊTRE IS THE ENVIRONMENT. IS TWO GUYS WHO HAVE BEEN GOING DOOR-TO-DOOR, IT SEEMS TO ME THAT’S ONLY PEOPLE IN THE PROVINCE ARE RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE OF FISH FARMING. COMMUNITIES THINK THEY NEED IT. AND OIL. ARE PEOPLE SLAMMING THE DOOR IN YOUR FACE?>>IT IS A COMPLETE DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE IN 2019. THE CLIMATE CHANGES ON THE TOP OF PEOPLE’S MINES. IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE. PEOPLE GO TO THE BALLOT BOX AND WE ARE GETTING A HUGE RESPONSE. I THINK OUR NUMBERS WILL BE A LOT BETTER THIS TIME AROUND AND WE ARE HOPING GREG IS GOING TO BE SENT TO OTTAWA AND MAYBE EVEN ME TOO.>>Anthony: DO YOU THINK HE HAS A BETTER CHANCE?>>HE IS GREG MALONE. [Laughter].>>Anthony: ARE YOU BEING — ARE YOU GETTING A GOOD RESPONSE?>>I HAVE HAD PEOPLE THANK ME FOR RUNNING. I HAVE HAD, IN AVALON, THAT THERE ARE 70 TO 80% CONCERN ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE CLIMATE CRISIS AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM FINDING AT THE DOOR. MY TALK TO FISHERMEN ON THE ROOF — ON THE WHARF, THEY SAY IT DID NOT HELP US TO LOSE THE COD STOCKS, DID IT? WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENTS SO WE HAVE JOBS. IF WE TRASH THE ENVIRONMENT, WE WILL LOSE JOBS. THEY GET IT. THE FISHERMEN REALLY GET IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE SUFFERED EVERYTHING WITH THE LOSS OF THE LARGEST BIOMASS ON EARTH.>>THE OCEAN IS GETTING TOO ACIDIC. THEY HABITAT IS BEING STRIPPED. 80% OF OUR FISH, FISH PRODUCTION IS STILL WILD FISH. WE ARE GOING TO RUIN BOTH.>>Anthony: I HAD TO WIND THINGS DOWN, OBVIOUSLY THE ENVIRONMENT IS A VERY COMPLEX ISSUE. I’M GLAD WE COULD GIVE THE GREEN PARTY SOME COVERAGE THIS CAMPAIGN. THANK YOU BOTH VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, GREAT TALKING TO YOU.>>Anthony: A NORWEGIAN AQUACULTURE GIANT THAT RUNS THE FARM ON THE SOUTH COAST IS LOOKING FOR A NEW FEED MANAGER. THEY SAY THEY ARE LOOKING FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEED MANAGER TO JOIN WHAT IT CALLS A GROWING PAIN IN THE SOUTH COAST, AND THIS IS NOT BECAUSE SOMEBODY HAS RESIGNED OR HAS BEEN FIRED. IT IS A KEY POSITION APART FROM FEEDING AN UNDERSTANDING FISH NUTRITION, THE ROLE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF ALL FISH STOCKS.>>>A DECADE AGO, CBC’S “LAND AND SEA” SPOKE WITH A COUPLE THAT WAS WORKING WITH NORA NORBERT — NORTHERN SEE FARMS WHO TOOK ON A CHALLENGE TO FARM HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF SALMON FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FORTUNE BAY. NOW THIS RECENT SALMON KILL IS BEING BLAMED ON WARNED — WARM TEMPERATURES. HERE THEY ARE FROM 2009 DESCRIBING HOW COLD TEMPERATURES ARE ALSO A PROBLEM.>>DOUG AND JENNIFER CAIN HAVE LEARNS THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS CRUCIAL TO SUCCESSFUL SALMON FARMING. WHAT YOU FEED YOUR FISH IS ONE OF THEM. THE SEED THEY USE IS BROUGHT IN FROM NEW BRUNSWICK AND IT IS EXPENSIVE, WELL OVER $1,000 A TON. AND AND PEAK PRODUCTION, THEY WILL GO THROUGH 50 TONNES A DAY.>>THOSE FISH ARE RELYING ON YOU TO GIVE THEM ALL THE NUTRITION. IF YOU DON’T DO IT IN THE RIGHT WAY FOR THE RIGHT TIME AND THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS — INGREDIENTS GOING INTO IT, YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. THEY NEED GOOD FEED AND THEY NEEDED AT THE RIGHT TIME PRESENTED TO THEM PROPERLY AS WELL. IT IS A REAL KEY. THERE IS NO STEROIDS, THERE’S NO GROWTH HORMONES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. AND SALMON FEED TODAY IS ONE OF THE MOST CLOSELY MONITORED AND REGULATED FOOD STOCKS. IT IS THE SAFEST THING YOU CAN EAT.>>BECAUSE IT IS SO EXPENSIVE, THEY ARE CAREFUL NOT TO WASTE THE SEED. THE CREW WASH THE FISH WITH — WATCH THE FISH WITH AN UNDERWATER CAMERA THAT THEY SINK IN THE CAGE. WHEN THEY SEE THE SALMON STUCK EATING, THEY STOP FEEDING.>>THEY LOOK GREAT. THEY LOOK REALLY EVEN ON THE CAMERA. BUT SIZE WISE, THEY ARE NICE AND PLUMP.>>Reporter: ALL TOLD, NORTHERN HARVEST SEED FARMS HAS 70 CAGES IN THE WATER. IN A BAY WHERE WATER TEMPERATURES ARE COLD, VERY COLD MANY SAY IT IS TOO COLD TO GROW SALMON.>>IF YOU HAVE REALLY, REALLY COLD WATER, YOU CAN HAVE ICE CRYSTALS THAT FORM IN THE WATER AND THEN THEY GET ON THE GILLS OF THE FISH. THE SALMON IS NOT VERY TOLERANT OF VERY COLD WATER. THEY DON’T PRODUCE AS MUCH AS THE ANTIFREEZE PROTEIN THAT CODFISH OR HALIBUT WILL PRODUCE. A LOT OF PEOPLE THOUGHT, EVEN A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE SALMON INDUSTRY AND AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY, THEY THOUGHT THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GROW FISH IN FORTUNE BAY. WATER JUST GETS TOO COLD.>>Reporter: THE FIRST BIG WATER TEST WAS THE FIRST WINTER THEY HAD FISH IN THE WATCHER IN 2003. THE COLDEST WINTER ANYONE HAD SEEN IN 70 YEARS. THE BAY FROZE OVER AND THEY FEARED THEIR FIRST BATCH OF SALMON WERE DEAD UNDERNEATH THE ICE.>>DOUG HAS A LOT OF GREY HAIR FROM IT AND I WOULD HAVE HAD IT IF I DIDN’T COVER THEM UP. IT WAS A LONG COUPLE OF MONTHS THERE WHEN IT WAS REALLY, REALLY COLD. PRETTY NERVE-RACKING, I’VE GOT TO SAY. I DON’T WANT TO ADMIT IT BUT IT WAS PRETTY NERVE-RACKING. [♪♪♪]>>Reporter: FOR WEEKS AND WEEKS , THEY DIDN’T EVEN ATTEMPT TO SEE THE FISH. FEEDING SALMON AT THE SURFACE WHERE WATER TEMPERATURES ARE ACTUALLY COLDER. SO THEY STAYED AWAY FROM THE CAGES AND WAITED AND WORRIED.>>THERE WAS A LOT OF TIMES WE THOUGHT IT WAS ALL OVER. WE THOUGHT THE GUYS SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE HERE, BUT AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT, IT WORKED OUT.>>Reporter: THE SALMON DIDN’T STARVE AND THEY DIDN’T FREEZE. BOTH THE FISH AND THE CANES PASSED THE TEST. IT WAS BAPTISM BY FIRE, OR IN THIS CASE, ICE.>>YOU DON’T GO NEAR YOUR FISH, MAYBE THAT IS HOW THEY BRING FISH THROUGH. THE FACT THAT WE STAYED AWAY FROM THE FISH, LET THEM SIT, LET THEM BE. THERE WAS A BIG LEARNING CURVE FOR EVERYBODY. [♪♪♪]>>Carolyn: WELCOME BACK. I AM LIVE AT KING GEORGE THE FIFTH PARK IN ST. JOHN’S WHERE THE NATIONAL SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE UNDERWAY. IT HAS BEEN QUITE AN EXCITING GAME SO FAR. THE MEN’S LOCAL TEAM IS PLAYING TONIGHT AGAINST ALBERTA. LAST TIME I CHECKED IN WITH YOU GUYS, THE ALBERTA TEAM WAS UP TWO POINTS. THEY JUST TIED THE GAME. A PLAYER NAMED KYLE WILLIAMS SCORED TWO GOALS IN THE PAST FEW MINUTES. IT HAS BEEN QUITE EXCITING AND THE CROWD IS DEFINITELY RILED UP RIGHT NOW. JOINING ME TO SPEAK MORE ABOUT THIS TOURNAMENT IS DOG REDMOND WITH THE NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR SOCCER ASSOCIATION. DOUG, TELL ME HOW BIG IS THIS TOURNAMENT FOR ST. JOHN’S?>>THIS TOURNAMENT FOR ST. JOHN’S IS REALLY, REALLY BIG. ST. JOHN’S AND THE AVALON PENINSULA HAS HOSTED MANY NATIONAL TOURNAMENTS BECAUSE WE FIND IT PRETTY GREAT FOR THE CITY, FOR THE PROVINCE, FOR PLAYERS, COACHES, OFFICIALS, LIKE IT IS A REAL GREAT APPROACH FOR NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR SOCCER.>>Reporter: CAN YOU GIVE A SENSE OF THE SCALE OF THIS TOURNAMENT? HOW MANY PLAYERS, HOW MANY TEAMS>>THERE’S 18 TEAMS, 10 MEN’S TEAMS, EIGHT WOMEN’S TEAMS. THEIR TOTAL WOMEN’S TEAMS FROM NEWFOUNDLAND ON ONE MEN’S TEAM. IN TOTAL, WE WILL HAVE ABOUT 450 PLAYERS AND WE WILL HAVE ABOUT 50 OFFICIALS DURING THE WEEKEND. WE ALWAYS GET A LOT OF FANS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY.>>Anthony: SO THIS IS LIKE A TOP-TIER TOURNAMENT.>>THIS IS THE BEST OF THE BEST. THIS IS SOMETHING EVERY PROVINCE LIKES TO HOST BECAUSE IT IS ALWAYS GREAT ENTERTAINMENT, GREAT COMPETITION, AND IT’S A REAL OPPORTUNITY FOR EVERYONE TO SEE HOW GOOD SOCCER IS IN THIS COUNTRY.>>Anthony: –>>Carolyn: YEAH, THE LAST TIME IT WAS HERE WAS A FEW YEARS AGO.>>2016. IT WAS HOSTED HERE, BUT OVER THE LAST 20 OR 25 YEARS, WE HOST EVERY SECOND OR THIRD YEAR BECAUSE WE SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF IT FOR OUR PLAYERS, OFFICIALS, COACHES, AND CANADIAN SOCCER HAS ALWAYS BEEN HAPPY TO HAVE TOURNAMENTS IN NEWFOUNDLAND BECAUSE THE GREAT COMMITMENT FROM THE VOLUNTEER BASE AND COMMUNITY BASE.>>Carolyn: YOU HAVE BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK ONE OR TWO TIMES IN THE SOCCER WORLD. YOU WERE TELLING ME BEFORE WE WENT ON THAT YOU HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE SOCCER ASSOCIATION SINCE 1987. A FEW YEARS. CAN YOU TELL ME HOW SOCCER HAS EVOLVED IN THE PROVINCE DURING THAT TIME?>>SOCCER HAS GROWN AND OUR REGISTRATION HAS GROWN EVERY YEAR. THE LEVEL OF COMPETITION HAS GROWN. WITH SOCCER IN THE PROVINCE, PROVINCIAL PROGRAMS HAVE GROWN. THE COMMITMENT FROM THE PLAYERS IS REALLY HIGH AND WE HAVE KIDS TRAVELLING FROM THE AGE OF 13, AND EVEN NOW, TEAMS ARE TRAVELLING TO EUROPE FOR COMPETITION AND TO LEARN THE GAME BETTER AND SEE GREAT COMPETITION FROM THE EUROPEAN TEAMS.>>Carolyn: GREAT COMPETITION FROM THE WOMEN’S TEAMS, IN PARTICULAR. TWO IN THIS COMPETITION. HOW HAS THAT CHANGED OVER THE YEARS? ARE MORE WOMEN GETTING INVOLVED?>>WOMEN’S SOCCER IN THE LAST 10 YEARS HAS REALLY GROWN IN THE PROVINCE. AT THE YOUTH LEVEL IT HAS GROWN AND THE SKILL LEVEL OF WOMEN’S SOCCER HAS GREATLY IMPROVED. WE HAVE SOME GIRLS BEING LOOKED AT BY THE VANCOUVER WHITECAPS. WE HAVE SEEN A GREAT INCREASE IN TALENT AND THE LADY’S PROGRAM. AND THE MEN’S PROGRAM HAS BEEN STRONG FOR A VERY LONG TIME.>>Carolyn: GREAT. IT HAS BEEN A VERY INTERESTING GAME HERE TONIGHT SO FAR. WE WILL KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED FOR THE LOCAL GUYS. I WILL THROW IT BACK TO YOU NOW, ANTHONY, IN THE STUDIO.>>Anthony: IT LOOKS LIKE A GREAT NIGHT DOWN THERE. BEAUTIFUL LIGHTING AND NICE WEATHER.>>Carolyn: IT IS. IT IS GORGEOUS, ACTUALLY. [Laughter].>>Anthony: THANK YOU, CAROLYN.>>>NOW TO A SPORT OF A DIFFERENT KIND. POLITICS. WITH A THE WEEKEND TO HAVE TO GO IN THE FEDERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN , THREE OF THE PARTY LEADERS WERE OUT TALKING ABOUT IMMIGRATION TODAY. IT STARTED WITH ANDREW SCHEER’S PLAN TO STOP THE FLOW OF ASYLUM-SEEKERS THAT UNOFFICIAL BORDERS SUCH AS A ROAD IN QUÉBEC>>WE WILL CLOSE THE LOOPHOLE IN A SAFE THIRD COUNTRY AGREEMENT. WE WILL ALSO HIRE 250 ADDITIONAL OFFICERS AT THE CANADA BORDER SERVICES AGENCY.>>BY SPENDING THE AGREEMENT, PEOPLE WOULD NOT NEED TO CROSS IRREGULARLY. THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE FLEEING DEATH, THEY ARE FREEING — FLEEING PERSECUTION. IN THE STATES, THEY ARE FLEEING THE FACT THAT MR. TRUMP HAS BEEN PUTTING KIDS IN CAGES. HE HAS BEEN STRIPPING BABIES OUT OF THE ARMS OF THEIR MOTHERS.>>Rt. Hon. Trudeau: EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO CLOSETS — CROSSES OUR BORDER, WHETHER IT IS REGULARLY OR IRREGULARLY, GETS FULLY PROCESSED BY OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM.>>Anthony: ELIZABETH MAY WAS MAKING A PUSH FOR GREEN JOBS TODAY, ARGUING THAT CULTURE IS A STRONG AND VALUABLE PART OF CANADA’S ECONOMY.

CAROLYN COULD TELLS WHAT THEY ARE.>>Anthony: IN LATIN. [Laughter].>>Ashley: ABSOLUTELY A BEAUTIFUL PHOTO. THANK YOU FOR SENDING THAT IN, AMANDA. AS FAR AS THE WEATHER GOES, ORIGINAL HIGH-PRESSURE HIGH PRESSURE IN PLACE. IT IS DOMINATING PICK UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE SEEING CLOUD COVER FOR PRICE OF NOVA SCOTIA AND IT IS JUST EDGING ITS WAY FOR THE SOUTH COAST. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THERE IS AN AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE THAT WILL DOMINATE. IT WILL TAKE THE CLOUD COVER OFFSHORE. THIS LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS THE NEXT WEATHER MAKER AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE WEEKEND. YOU CAN SEE THE ONLY REASON THAT WILL HAPPEN IS BECAUSE THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE OVER US AND CONTINUE TO TRACK FURTHER EAST. SOME OF THAT CLOUD COVER MAY MAKE ITS WAY FOR THE SOUTH COAST INTO FRIDAY MORNING, BUT OVERALL , THE HIGH-PRESSURE WILL MOVE FARTHER EAST. THAT WILL ALLOW THE LOW TO MOVE BACK UP AND AFFECT US AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE WEEKEND. IT DOES LOOK LIKE WE WILL SEE SOME CLOUD COVER EDGE IN BY SATURDAY, AND THEN EVENTUALLY SOME OF THAT RAIN WILL MOVE IN. WINDS WILL PICK UP AS WELL AFTER QUITE A FEW DAYS OF VERY LITTLE WIND. SO HERE IS WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT FOR FRIDAY. AGAIN, NOTHING BUT SUNSHINE FOR MOST OF US. WE MIGHT SEE A FEW — A LITTLE BIT OF CLOUD COVER, BUT OTHERWISE TEMPERATURES ARE STAYING AROUND 11 DEGREES FOR ST. JOHN’S. EIGHTEEN SHOULD BE THE AFTERNOON HIGH IN CORNER BROOK. WE WILL HANG ONTO THOSE MIDTEENS FOR HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY AS WELL. KNOB CITY, A BEAUTIFUL 17 FOR YOU. YOU SHOULD BE SITTING AROUND 4 DEGREES FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. IT IS CERTAINLY WELCOME. DEFINITELY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT WEATHER. HERE IS WHAT WE ARE LOOKING OUT OVER THE NEXT FIVE DAYS. SUNSHINE ON SATURDAY. THAT IS WHEN SOME CLOUD SHOULD MOVE IN AND SITTING AROUND 10 DEGREES. OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL BUMP UP A LITTLE BIT AS WELL, INTO ABOUT 8°. SUNDAY IS WHEN IT LOOKS LIKE MOST OF THAT RAIN WILL FALL. BY MONDAY, THAT IS WANT TO GET INTO THOSE COOLER TEMPERATURES. AGAIN, IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL GO INTO A BELOW SEASONAL TREND TO KICK OFF NEXT WEEK. AND FOR CENTRAL NEWFOUNDLAND, 1. FOURTEEN FOR SATURDAY AND SOME OF THAT CLOUD MOVES IN. 9 DEGREES IS THE OVERNIGHT LOW. QUITE LOVELY. SUNDAY AND MONDAY LOOKING GREY AND WET BY THE TIME SOME OF THAT COOLER AIR MOVES INTO KICK OFF THE NEXT WORK WEEK. FOR WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND, 18 DEGREES BY FRIDAY. SATURDAY SITTING AROUND 15. OVERNIGHT LOWS DIPPING INTO SUNDAY AND MONDAY, BUT TEMPERATURES ARE NOT TOO BAD. 16 DEGREES FOR SUNDAY AND 9 DEGREES FOR MONDAY. FOR EASTERN LABRADOR, AGAIN, THE OVERNIGHT — OR AFTERNOON HIGH SHOULD BE SITTING AROUND 7 DEGREES FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. NOT CLOSE TO RECORDS. I LOOKED INTO THAT AND THOSE RECORDS ARE ACTUALLY IN THE 20- DEGREE RANGE AS WE HEAD INTO THE WEEKEND. EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOT RECORD-BREAKING, STILL ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. 15 DEGREES FOR SATURDAY. SUNDAY LOOKING AT CLOUD COVER MOVING IN AND MONDAY HAS A HIGH NEAR 17 DEGREES. FOR WESTERN LABRADOR, ABOUT 13 DEGREES ON SATURDAY, AND THEN EVENTUALLY TEMPERATURES DIPPING 8° FOR YOUR SUNDAY AND MONDAY LOOKING AT 6 DEGREES AND A CHANCE OF SHOWERS. LET’S LOOK AT YOUR — THAT A LOOK AT YOUR FORECAST, I WILL HAVE THE WEATHER PHOTO COMING UP>>Anthony: WE WILL GET TO ASHLEY’S OTHER PHOTO IN A SECOND BUT CHECK OUT THE SCENES THIS CHARACTER IS CAPTURING.>>WE HOPE THAT PEOPLE SEEING HOW BEAUTIFUL OUR NATURE IS AND WE CAN REALLY RAISE OUR RENT AND GIVE THEM A LITTLE REASON TO DO SOMETHING TO REDUCE OUR IMPACT ON THE CLIMATE.>>Anthony: DO YOU REMEMBER THAT SONG “FLY LIKE AN EAGLE?” THEY SAY THERE WERE TWO GOALS. FIRST TO SHOW THE WORLD HOW QUICKLY MOUNTAIN ICE IS MELTING ACROSS EUROPE AND TO REMIND US THAT BIG BIRDS LIKE VICTOR, THEY ARE DISAPPEARING BECAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE. IF YOU HAVE EVER WANTED AN EAGLE ‘S I VIEW AND YOU HAVE WONDERED WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE, YOU WILL GET NO BETTER PICTURE THAN THAT. FANTASTIC.

THIS ONE WAS SENT TO US BY BROAD I WILL TELL YOU WHERE THIS WAS TAKEN WHEN WE COME BACK. [♪♪♪] [♪♪♪]>>Anthony: ASHLEY, YOU MENTIONED THE GREAT COLOURS AND YOU SHOWED THE HARVEST PICTURE EARLIER.

THIS IS WHAT WE SIGNED UP FOR WHEN WE MOVED HERE.>>Ashley: THAT IS CALGARY YESTERDAY AFTERNOON. DRIVING WAS HAZARDOUS BY ANYBODY ‘S STANDARDS. TRAFFIC POLICE WERE CALLED OVER — NEARLY 200 TIMES.>>Anthony: MOSTLY FENDER BENDER HIS, THANK GOODNESS.
