[ ♪♪♪ ]>>Mike: GOOD EVENING. A BROKEN ELEVATOR IS TAKING ITS TOLL ON PEOPLE LIVING IN A BUILDING ON VANCOUVER’S DOWNTOWN EASTSIDE.>>Anita: IT’S BEEN MONTHS SINCE THE ELEVATOR WORKED INSIDE THE SVO HILLDEN HOTEL, LEAVING BUILDINGS FRUSTRATED. THE BUILDING IS OWNED BY A PROMINENT VANCOUVER BUSINESS WOMAN.>>Reporter: IT’S A DAILY GRIND THAT LEAVES GARY RATSINGER GASPING FOR AIR. THE DISABLED 65-YEAR-OLD GOES UP AND DOWN SIX FLIGHTS OF STAIRS EVERY DAY, AND IT’S STARTING TO TAKE A TOLL.>>PULLED A MUSCLE IN MY BACK. NOT TOO PAINFUL. BUT THAT LED TO A PINCHED NERVE.>>Reporter: THE ELEVATOR INSIDE THE HILLDEN HOTEL IS BROKEN. RATSINGER SAYS IT’S BEEN OUT OF ORDER FOR AT LEAST TWO AND A HALF MONTHS.>>BUT 70 DAYS IS SO PAST ANYTHING REASONABLE.>>Reporter: SOME RESIDENTS HERE CAN’T EVEN REMEMBER THE LAST TIME IT WORKED.>>I’M LITERALLY CARRYING SOME OF THE ELDERLY RESIDENTS DOWNSTAIRS THAT NEED TO GET OUT AND CARRYING THEM BACK UP. AND THAT’S SIX FLIGHTS OF STAIRS.>>Reporter: THE ELEVATOR IS THE LATEST IN A LONG LIST OF PROBLEMS. ONE THAT INCLUDES COCKROACHES, BEDBUGS, AND DILAPIDATED BATHROOMS.>>IT’S UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE IT’S TURNING INTO A TYPICAL SRO, DOWNTOWN SRO.>>Reporter: THE HILL HILLDEN HOTEL IS MORE THAN 100 YEARS OLD, OWNED BY JACKIE COHEN, OWNER OF ARMY & NAVY AND OTHER PROPERTIES IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS. SHE SAID IN A STATEMENT IT’S UP TO THE BUILDING OPERATOR. THAT IS GUS GREER, WHO RUNS THE PUB DOWNSTAIRS.>>I’M TRYING TO LIVE ON THE MARGINS MUCH AT THE END OF THE DAY IT IS NOT MY BUILDING. SO IF I CAN’T MAKE IT WORK, SOMETHING’S GOING TO HAVE TO BE DONE. IT WON’T BE MY ME IF I CAN’T MAKE IT WORK.>>Reporter: GEARS SAYS HE WANTS TO SELL HIS LEASE FOR THE BUILDING, BUT THAT WOULD NOT SOLVE THE ISSUES HERE ANY TIME SOON.>>THE STRESSES JUST KEEP PILING AND UP PILING UP AND PILING UP.>>Reporter: RESIDENTS LIKE RATSINGER WANT TO SEND THE OWNER AND MANAGEMENT A MESSAGE.>>SPEND A LITTLE CASH. COME OVER MORE OFTEN. WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS.>>[Inaudible]>>GET YOUR (BEEP) TOGETHER. THAT’S ABOUT IT. AND PAY YOUR BILLS.>>Reporter: COHEN SAID THAT DESPITE IT NOT BEING HER PROBLEM, SHE’S READY TO TAKE IT ON HERSELF. BUT CITY OFFICIALS CONFIRM THE HOTEL OPERATOR, GREER, HAS ALREADY ORDERED THE ELEVATOR REPAIRED. A CITY INSPECTION OF THE ENTIRE BUILDING HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR LATER THIS MONTH. JOHN HERNANDEZ, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Anita: JOB LOSSES ARE MOUNTING AS SAWMILLS CLOSE ACROSS THE PROVINCE. THE LATEST ONE IN KELOWNA MILL MILL ESTIMATED 6,000 WORKERS ARE NOW AFFECTED, AND AS THE CBC’S TINA LOVEGREEN REPORTS, WORKERS ARE WONDERING WHAT THE PROVINCE IS DOING TO HELP.>>ALL OF THIS WILL BE SHUT DOWN EVENTUALLY.>>Reporter: THIS HAS BEEN THE STOMPING GROUNDS FOR LIEF LINEHAM FOR THE PAST 22 YEARS. YOU COULD SAY THIS IS ALL HE KNOWS.>>AT 58 YEARS OLD, I’LL HAVE TO START LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW TO DO.>>Reporter: TEAL JONES ANNOUNCED EARLIER THIS WEEK IT’S ENDING ITS LOGGING OPERATIONS, MEANING LAYOFFS FOR 300 LOGGERS. AN UNCERTAINTY FOR ANOTHER 500 MILL EMPLOYEES LIKE LINEHAM.>>LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WORK HERE ARE LATE IN THEIR CAREERS, AND THEY WONDER WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO TO GET THROUGH TO RETIREMENT NOW.>>Reporter: FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS, BC HAS BEEN PLAGUED BY A SERIES OF MILL CURTAILMENTS AND CLOSURES AFFECTING NEARLY 6,000 WORKERS AT 25 MILLS ACROSS 22 COMMUNITIES.>>>WHAT’S BEHIND ALL OF THIS? ACCORDING TO THE COMPANIES, IT IS LOW LUMBER PRICES, HIGH OPERATING COSTS, AND DWINDLING TIMBER SUPPLIES. WOOD FIBER SHORTAGE IN BC IS DUE PARTLY BECAUSE OF WILDFIRES AND A SEVERE MOUNTAIN PINE BEETLE INFESTATION. THE OPPOSITION CRITIC SAYS THERE ARE POLICIES THE GOVERNMENT CAN BRING IN TO SAVE A STRUGGLING INDUSTRY.>>60% OF THE PROBLEM IS STUMPAGE. THAT’S A BIG ONE. THE OTHER 40% IS GOVERNMENT POLICY, AN OVERABUNDANCE OF REGULATIONS AND PAIN THAT HAS TO GO THROUGH IN TERMS OF TRYING TO GET PERMITS OR THINGS LIKE THE EMPLOYER HEALTH PACKS OR CARBON TAX OR OTHER STEPS THAT MAKE OUR INDUSTRY LESS COMPETITIVE.>>Reporter: THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT SAYS IT IS TAKING ACTION AND IS PROVIDING SUPPORTS LIKE JOB FAIRS AND SKILLS TRAINING TO THOSE AFFECTED. AS WELL AS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO DIVERSIFY AS FIBER SUPPLY DECLINES. BUT MILL WORKERS DON’T FEEL LIKE THEY’RE GETTING MUCH SUPPORT.>>IT FEELS LIKE THEY’RE WORKING ON THE OTHER TEAM.>>Reporter: AS THEY COUNT DOWN THE DAYS HOPING FOR A DIFFERENT OUTCOME. MEAN LOVEGREEN, CBC NEWS, SURREY.>>Mike: ANOTHER VETERAN LOCAL POLITICIAN IS TRYING TO BLOCK RIDE-HAILING COMPANIES FROM OPERATING IN HER CITY. LOIS JACKSON. ANITA BATHE JUSTIN JOINS US WITH MORE. WHAT IS JACKSON’S PLAN TO STOP THIS?>>JACKSON, FORMER LONG TIME MAYOR OF DELTA, HOPING ALL MUNICIPALITIES IN BC RISE UP AND TELL THE PROVINCE THAT THEY DON’T WANT RIDE HAILING GOING IN UNLESS MUNICIPALITIES LEAD THE WAY IN TERMS OF HOW IT’S HAPPENING. SHE’S PUT FORWARD A MOTION ASKING FOR AN EMERGENCY RESOLUTION AT THE UBC CONFERENCE LATER THIS MONTH AS WELL AS ASKING THE PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION BOARD TO HALT WHAT THEY’RE DOING UNTIL THEY CAN TALK WITH CITIES. BASICALLY ARGUING IT SHOULD BE ELECTED COUNCILS ACROSS THE LOWER MAINLAND AND NOT AN APPOINTED BOARD BY THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT MAKING THIS BIG DECISION.>>LET’S DO IT RIGHT FOR ALL THE IN THE LOWER MAINLAND AND NOT BE JUST STATING WE HAVE TO HAVE THIS IN BY THE END OF THE YEAR. I THINK THERE ARE SO MANY QUESTIONS NOW THAT I SEE ARISING FROM PLACES LIKE LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK, SEATTLE, AND OTHER PLACES THAT ARE LEARNING A LOT ABOUT HOW THIS IS UNFOLDING. I’M NOT SAYING IT’S ALL BAD. I’M SAYING I THINK WE SHOULD TAKE A SOBER SECOND LOOK.>>Reporter: THAT VOTE WILL TAKE PLACE MONDAY NIGHT. JACKSON SAYS SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHETHER IT WILL PASS BUT THINKS THAT WITH ALL THAT’S HAPPENED OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS, IT’S WORTH IT TO GIVE A SHOT TRYING TO STOP IT.>>Anita: THE BIG QUESTION HERE: CAN MUNICIPALITIES ACTUALLY BLOCK COMPANIES LIKE UBER AND LYFT?>>Reporter: WE HEARD FROM McCALLUM EARLIER THIS WEEK SAYING THAT HE WOULD REVOKE BUSINESS LICENSES OR NOT ISSUE BUSINESS LICENSES, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE LETTER OF THE LAW THAT THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT HAS PUT OUT THERE, THERE’S NOT A HECK OF A LOT OF TOOLS AVAILABLE FOR CITIES WHETHER THEY LIKE OR DISLIKE RIDE HAILING. TAKE A LOOK RIGHT THERE AT THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT’S WEBSITE WHERE THEY SAY HUGE AUTHORITY ON THESE NEW LAWS, THEY SAY THE PASSENGER OF TRANSPORTATION BOARD HAS BEEN CHARGED, MUNICIPALITIES CAN’T STOP VEHICLES LIKE THIS FROM OPERATING IN THEIR MUNICIPALITY, AND ANY BYLAWS THAT THEY HAVE IN PLACE ARE VOID AS OF LATER THIS WEEK. THEY CAN TRY AND STOP THIS, BUT EVEN IN DELTA, IT’S NOT LOOKING LIKELY IT’S GOING TO PASS COUNCIL. THE MAYOR HAS SPOKEN OUT AGAINST IT AND A FELLOW COUNCILOR, DYLAN KRUEGER, ALSO SAYS HE THINKS IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL RIDE HAILING IS THERE.>>THIS MOTION SHOULDN’T BE COMING ANYWHERE NEAR A COUNCIL TABLE, FIRST OF ALL. THIS IS NOT IN OUR JURISDICTION AS A MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT. THIS IS A PROVINCIAL ISSUE. I’LL BE OPPOSING THIS MOTION ON BEHALF OF EVERY SINGLE METRO VANCOUVER RESIDENT WHO HAS EVER BEEN PASSED UP ON A TAXI RIDE BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO GO TOO FAR OR THEY DIDN’T HAVE ANY CASH OR THEY HAD TO WAIT 30 MINUTES FOR A CAB RIDE. WE DESPERATELY NEED RIDE SHARING IN VANCOUVER AND THAT’S NO MORE THAN REAL THAN HERE IN DELTA WHERE WE ALREADY HAVE EXISTING TRANSPORTATION CHALLENGES.>>Reporter: WE MIGHT HEAR MORE OF THIS FROM SOME MUNICIPAL LEADERS IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, BUT THEY HAVE VERY LITTLE TOOLS HERE. IT’S PROBABLY A QUESTION OF WHEN, NOT IF, RIDE HAILING COMES FOR METRO VANCOUVER.>>Anita: JUSTIN McILROY, THANK YOU.>>Mike: ONE PERSON WAS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL WITH A BACK INJURY AFTER A CAR CRASHED INTO A TRUCK NEAR THE GEORGIA VIADUCT. HAPPENED AT GORE AND PRIOR JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT. A BLACK LANDROVER WAS STOPPED AT A RED LIGHT WHEN IT WAS HIT FROM BEHIND BY A GREY MAZDA 3MENT THERE WERE FOUR PEOPLE IN THE LANDROVER AND TWO IN THE MAZDA AT THE TIME OF THE CRASH. POLICE SAY SPEED AND ALCOHOL ARE FACTORS. THE 22-YEAR-OLD DRIVER OF THE MAZDA FACING CHARGES FOR IMPAIRED DRIVING AND REFUSING TO PROVIDE A BREATH SAMPLE.>>Anita: A WEST END MASSEUR HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH SEX ASSAULT, AND POLICE BELIEVE THERE COULD BE MORE ALLEGED VICTIMS. A 3 1-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS ALLEGEDLY ASSAULTED AT THE TOE TO SOUL RELAX LOUNGE ON WEST BROADWAY LAST MONTH. POLICE SAY AN EMPLOYEE MAY HAVE USED THEIR POSITION TO ASSAULT THE WOMAN, WHO WAS A CUSTOMER. 61-YEAR-OLD ARMADO RAMOS WAS ARRESTED AND CHARGED A FEW DAYS AGO BUT IS NOW FREE ON BAIL. POLICE BELIEVE IN MAY BE MORE VICTIMS WHO HAVEN’T REPORTED ANYTHING, AND POLICE ARE WORKING TO IDENTIFY THEM.>>Mike: THE EMERGENCY ROOM AT ABBOTTSFORD REGIONAL HOSPITAL IS GETTING A 16 MILLION-DOLLAR EXPANSION. BC’S HEALTH MINISTER ADMITS THE FACILITY HAS BEEN PLAGUED BY OVERCROWDING SINCE OPENING IN 2008. THE 825 SQUARE METRE UPGRADE WILL INCLUDE NEW TRAUMA BAYS AND 1 NEW PATIENT EXAM ROOMS. THE E.R. HAS BEEN KNOWN TO HOUSE PATIENTS IN HALLWAYS FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME LEADING TO QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER SOME DEATHS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. EMERGENCY ROOM WILL STAY OPEN DURING RENOVATIONS, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETED BY THE SUMMER OF 2021.>>Anita: WORKERS HAD HE HYATT REGENCY IN DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER PICTURED TODAY ASKING THE PUBLIC TO WITHDRAW BUSINESS FROM THE HOTEL. THE EMPLOYEES SAY THEY ARE OFFICIALLY BOYCOTTING THE HYATT, SAYING THE HOTEL ISN’T PROVIDING SUSTAINABLE WORKING CONDITIONS. SOME OF THE THINGS THEY ARE ASKING FOR INCLUDE FULL-TIME HOURS, BETTER WAGES, IMPROVED BENEFITS, AND SAFETY STANDARDS. THE UNITE HERE LOCAL 40 UNION MEMBERS WANT TO BARGAIN FOR A FAIR CONTRACT AFTER BEING WITHOUT ONE FOR 14 MONTHS.>>IT’S A HEAVIER WORKLOAD THAT DEMANDS THE EXPECTATION A LOT HIGHER, AND AT THE END OF THE DAY OUR BODY ACHES.>>Anita: ALTHOUGH THEY AREN’T OFFICIALLY ON STRIKE YET, WORKERS FROM THE HYATT, PINNACLE HARBOURFRONT, HOTELS GEORGE I CAN’T, AND THE WESTIN HAVE ISSUED STRIKE NOTICE.>>Mike: A VICTORY FOR PRESTON BUFFALO. SOMEONE STOLE HIS CHEQUEBOOK. THAT PERSON WROTE $100 CHEQUES AND STOLE $600 FROM BUFFALO’S BANK ACCOUNT. THE BANK OFFICIAL SAID IT WAS NOT REIMBURSE THE MONEY BECAUSE IT WAS HIS RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT HIS CHECKBOOK. AFTER THE CBC NEWS STORY, TD CANADA TRUST SAYS IT HAS DECIDED TO REFUND THE MONEY. IF YOU HAVE ANY STORIES YOU’D LIKE US TO CHECK OUT, PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL TO [email protected] [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Anita: YOU’RE HERE.>>I’M RIGHT HERE.>>Anita: FOR A FIRST LOOK AT THE WEATHER.>>THE BEST WAY TO INTRODUCE THIS IS A PHRASE: SO IT BEGINS. IN THE PAST HOUR WE’VE SEEN RAIN START TO PUSH IN TO THE METRO REGION. IT’S BEEN RAINING FAIRLY STEADILY TOWARD THE SUNSHINE COAST AND NANAIMO. IT’S NOW MAKING ITS WAY ON SHORE. LOTS OF UMBRELLAS WITH PEOPLE MAKING THEIR WAY ON THE SIDEWALK. THE QUESTION IS, IS THIS GOING TO BE SNC THE ANSWER IS YES. IN TERMS OF TEMPERATURES, ALL OF THAT RAIN IS MAKING IT COOLERMENT WE’RE NOT TOO FAR AWAY FROM SEASONAL. 17° IS A FAR CRY FROM WHERE WE WERE A FEW WEEKS AGO. HERE’S THE WEEKEND PLANNER. WE’VE MADE IT. HOPEFULLY YOU CAN TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THIS WEATHER TO MITIGATE WHATEVER IS GOING TO BE GOING ON FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD. A FEW SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE. LOWS ARE GOING TO GO DOWN TO 14° OR SO. SATURDAY MORNING, THIS IS GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING ONE. WE’LL PROBABLY SEE A FEW SPOTTY SHOWERS TO START THE MORNING. THAT IS GOING TO CHANGE OVER INTO SOME HEAVIER RAIN THROUGHOUT THE EVENING HOURS. FOR THE EVENING SATURDAY AND INTO SUNDAY THAT’S PROBABLY WHERE WE’LL BE SEEING THE HEAVIEST RAIN. HIGHS ARE GOING TO GO UP TO 17. COME SUNDAY, WE’RE NOT LOOKING AT NEARLY HEAVY RAIN BUT I WOULD MENTION WE ARE PROBABLY GOING TO BE SEEING SCATTERED SHOWERS OFF AND ON. IT DEFINITELY IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE BIT ON THE COOLER SIDE. DAYTIME HIGHS ONLY ABOUT 16. COME THE EVENING HOURS WE MAY BE GETTING REALLY CLOSE TO 10°. NICE AND COSY, PERHAPS?>>Anita: SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THANKS, BRETT.>>Mike: AN UNUSUAL BREAK AND ENTER, TO SAY THE LEAST N PORT T MOODY.>>Anita: IT HAPPENED THIS MORNING AND CAUGHT ON CAMERA.>>HOW DOES A BEAR GET INTO SOMEBODY’S CAR AND LOCK THE DOOR?>>Mike: GOOD QUESTION. POLICE BELIEVE IT USED ITS PAWS TO GAIN ENTRY. THEY WERE CALLED WHEN THE BLACK BEAR WAS SPOTTED INSIDE THE SUV. POLICE AND CONSERVATION OFFICERS OPENED THE DOOR, AND THE BEAR WENT ON ITS WAY. THE INSIDE OF THE SUV WAS BADLY DAMAGED BY THE WOULD-BE THIEF. JUST ANOTHER REMINDER FOR RESIDENTS TO LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS AND GARBAGE CONTAINERS.>>Anita: PRETTY SCARY.>>Mike: THEY CAN GET IN.>>Anita: WE’VE SEEN THAT BEFORE, OPENING CAR DOORS. HAPPENS EVERY YEAR.>>>YOU CAN WATCH THIS NEWSCAST AND ALL OF CBC’S OTHER AWARD-WINNING DON’T WHERE EVER YOU GO BY DOWNLOADING THE FREE CBC GEM APP.>>Mike: CBC VANCOUVER ALSO ON FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE, AND INSTAGRAM. YOU CAN FOLLOW US ON ALL PLATFORMS FOR EXTRA CONTENT YOU WON’T SEE ON TV.>>Anita: A POTENTIAL BREACH IS ROCKING CANADA’S INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY, AND NOW A HIGH-RANKING RCMP EMPLOYEE IS FACING CHARGES UNDER A RARELY-USED LAW. MORE ON THAT NEXT.>>Anita: HAPPY FRIDAY TO YOU, IF YOU’RE TUNING IN TO US ON CBC GEM, FACEBOOK, OR YOUTUBE. WE ARE HERE DURING OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED 3 MINUTE COMMERCIAL BREAK. SPIN CLASSES, THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY. THEY’RE POPULAR IN FITNESS, BIG TREND RIGHT NOW. IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE, THEY’RE CLASSES WHERE GROUPS OF PEOPLE GATHER ON STATIONARY BOOKS AND EXERCISE TOGETHER.>>Mike: ONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS TAKING THE IDEA A LITTLE MORE LITERALLY AND HAS PUT STATIONARY BIKES IN THEIR CLASSROOMS. THEY FOUND IT NOT ONLY HELPS THE KIDS BURN OFF SOME STEAM, IT ALSO HELPS THEM FOCUS ON THEIR LESSONS. HAVE A LOOK…>>Reporter: IN Mrs. PETERS’ GRADE 4 CLASS, THERE’S ONE SEAT ALL KIDS WANT.>>THEY CAN TAKE ALL YOUR ENERGY OUT. WHEN YOU FEEL SAD OR LONELY, THIS CAN HELP YOU A LOT.>>Reporter: SOUTH OAKS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HAS NINE STATIONARY BIKES LIKE THIS. SOMEONE FOR ADULTS AND THE REST ARE FOR KIDS. CLASSES IN GRADES 1 THROUGH 4 CAN TAKE A SPIN ANY TIME.>>I’VE SEEN THE BIKE AT ESPECIALLY IN WINTER IS SO BENEFICIAL TO JUST HAVE US HAVE A PLACE TO MOVE AROUND AND GET SOME OF OUR PENT-UP ENERGY OUT.>>Reporter: LONG-TIME TEACHER Mrs. PETERS USES THE BIKES TO HELP HER 8 AND 9-YEAR-OLD PAY ATTENTION. WHETHER THEY’RE DOWN AND NEED TO BE ALERT OR MORE COMMONLY, WHEN THEY’RE STRUGGLING TO SIT STILL.>>I JUST SEE THEM COMING OFF OF IT, FEELING REFRESHED AND HEADING BACK TO THEIR JOBS. AT THE END OF THE YEAR THEY’LL BE WORKING THERE. THEY’LL BE DOING ALL THEIR WORK ON THE BIKE. THEY’LL BE READING THERE. SO I JUST FEEL LIKE IT’S A REAL HOLISTIC KIND OF APPROACH.>>Reporter: SOUTH OAKS PRINCIPAL DAILY MARTINS PAYS FOR THE BIKES WITH A GRANT FROM THE HAN SORRY SCHOOL DIVISION. THEY COST ABOUT DOLLARS 700 EACH AND ARE DEFINED ESPECIALLY FOR CLASSROOMS. THE BIKES ARE VIRTUALLY SILENT AND SMALL ENOUGH FOR A 6-YEAR-OLD. MARTINS WANTS TO EVENTUALLY HAVE BIKES IN ALL HIS CLASSROOMS.>>IT ALSO REALLY HELPS THE TEACHERS BECAUSE I JUST HAD A GRADE 1 TEACHER WHO WAS HERE LAST YEAR, HAD A BIKE, AND THIS YEAR WE DIDN’T HAVE IS A BIKE FOR HER. SHE’S IN A DIFFERENT ROOM. AND SHE SAYS TO ME, I MISS THAT BIKE.>>Reporter: MR. PETERS’ GRADE 4 STUDENTS CONTINUE TO RIDE. SHE HOPES THE BIKE ENCOURAGES ACTIVE HABITS EARLY SO KIDS WORK OUT ALL YEAR LONG AND BEYOND.>>Mike: GOOD IDEA.>>Anita: IT IS. THERE’S A SCHOOL ON VANCOUVER ISLAND THAT DOES THAT, SAANICH. LETS THE KIDS BLOW OFF A LITTLE STEAM, GET SOME EXERCISE IN.>>Mike: ALL THOSE THINGS. ALL GOOD.>>>STAY WITH US.

A SENIOR CIVILIAN WITH THE FORCES INTELLIGENCE TEAM IN CUSTODY, CHARGED UNDER CANADA’S RARELY-USED SECURITY OF INFORMATION ACT.>>THE ALLEGATIONS ARE THAT HE OBTAINED, STORED, PROCESSED SENSITIVE INFORMATION, WE BELIEVE WITH THE INTENT TO COMMUNICATE IT TO PEOPLE THAT HE SHOULDN’T BE COMMUNICATING IT TO.>>Reporter: CAMERON ORTIZ, AN EXPERT IN EAST ASIAN AFFAIRS, COMPUTERS, AND CYBER SECURITY S FACING ALLEGATIONS DATING BACK TO FEBRUARY 2015. ACCUSED OF COMMUNICATING SENSITIVE INFORMATION AND GATHERING MORE THIS PAST YEAR WITH THE INTENT OF SELLING IT TO A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT. ORTIZ HAD ACCESS TO ENOUGH SECRETS TO BE BOUND TO SECRECY FOR LIFE.>>CLASSIFIED INTELLIGENCE FROM CANADIAN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND SECURITY SERVICES AND ALLIED INFORMATION. HE HAS SOME OF THE BROADEST ACCESS THAT YOU GET IN THE RCMP. SO FOR ME T REALLY COMES DOWN TO WHAT HE TOOK AND WHAT HE WAS INTENDING TO DO WITH IT.>>Reporter: A NIGHTMARE SCENARIO. HIS ARREST, SOURCES SAY, SET FEDERAL DEPARTMENTS SCRAMBLING TO ASSESS THE POSSIBLE DAMAGE. EVEN FORCING A COMMENT ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.>>Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THE AUTHORITIES ARE TAKING THIS EXTREMELY SERIOUSLY S AS YOU MIGHT UNDERSTAND, I HAVE NO COMMENT TO MAKE.>>Reporter: CHARGES UNDER THIS ACT ARE RARE. IN 2012, A FORMER NAVY INTELLIGENCE OFFICER PLEADED GUILTY TO SELLING SECRETS TO RUSSIA. ANOTHER CASE OF A CANADIAN MAN ACCUSED OF TRYING TO SPY FOR CHINA IS STILL IN THE COURTS AFTER NEARLY SIX YEARS. BECAUSE, EXPERTS SAY, OF A DELICATE BALANCING ACT.>>THIS IS A CASE ABOUT OFFICIAL SECRETS, BASICALLY, AND THE LEAK ANGRY OF OFFICIAL SECRETS — LEAKAGE OF OFFICIAL SECRETS. THE GOVERNMENT HAS AN INTEREST IN BEING ABLE TO PROSECUTE SUCCESSFULLY AND AT THE SAME TIME THEY HAVE TO PLANS THAT AGAINST NOT WANT BE TO DIVULGE INFORMATION IN PUBLIC, PUBLIC TRIAL, WHICH THIS HAS TO BE.>>Mike: ONE OF CANADA’S MOST DECORATED ATHLETES SAYS SHE WANTS TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY TO COMPETE FOR THE UNITED STATES.>>Anita: BOBSLEDDER KAILLIE HUMPHRIES ALLEGES SHE WAS HARASSED, AND SHE POINTS THE FINGER AT THE HEAD COACH OF BOBSLEIGH CANADA.

SHE PLANS TO START TRAINING WITH TEAM USA NEXT WEEK.>>IT’S REALLY HARD. IT’S HARD. [INDISCERNIBLE] LIFE.>>Reporter: HUMPHRIES ALLEGES BOBSLEIGH CANADA BREACHED THE CODE OF CONDUCT BETWEEN ATHLETES AND COACHES. SHE POINTS THE FINGER AT HEAD COACH TODD HAYES. SHE FILED A HARASSMENT CLAIM 13 MONTHS AGO AND SAYS SHE’S TIRED OF WAITING FOR A RESOLUTION. HUMPHRIES IS SUING BOBSLEIGH CANADA FOR BLOCKING HER RELEASE FROM THE TEAM.

A LOT OF DEGRADING COMMENTS ARE OFTEN SEEN WITHIN THE SPORT.>>Reporter: U.S. TEAM SAYS IT WILL WELCOME HUMPHRIES. HUMPHRIES SAYS SHE HAS GIVEN THE CANADIAN TEAM UNTIL NEXT WEDNESDAY TO RELEASE HER. BOBSLEIGH CANADA AND HAYES WON’T COMMENT ON THE ALLEGATIONS BUT BOBSLEIGH CANADA SAYS THE INVESTIGATION CONTINUES. A STATEMENT OF DEFENCE HAS YET TO BE FILED. SIMON DINGLEY, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Anita: AN AWARD-WINNING AMERICAN ACTOR IS GOING TO JAIL AND PAYING A FINE FOR HER PART IN A COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL.>>Mike: FELICITY HUFFMAN ADMITTED PAYING MONEY TO FALSIFY HER DAUGHTER’S ACADEMIC RECORD.>>Anita: AS WE HEAR FROM ZULEKHA NATHOO, TODAY’S SENTENCE HAS RAISED QUESTIONS ABOUT JUSTICE IN THE U.S. LEGAL SYSTEM.>>Reporter: FELICITY HUFFMAN WAS SENTENCED TO TWO WEEKS IN JAIL. SHE’S ALSO RECEIVED A YEAR OF SUPERVISED RELIEF. SHE WAS GIVEN AS 30,000 FINE AND 250 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE. IN MAY, SHE PLEADED GUILTY TO ONE COUNT OF CONSPIRACY AND FRAUD AND ADMITTED TO PAYING SOMEONE TO GET A [INDISCERNIBLE] TO CHANGE THE ANSWERS FOR HER DAUGHTER’S S AT EXAM. SHE IS THE FIRST PARENT TO BE SENTENCED IN WHAT HAS BECOME THE LARGEST COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL IN U.S. HISTORY, AND THE SENTENCE REALLY SETS THE TONE FOR THE OTHER CASES THAT WILL BE COMING UP IN THE NEAR FUTURE. KEEP IN MIND THERE ARE STILL LOTS OF PARENTS FACING CHARGES, COACHES, ADMINISTRATORS. MANY OF THEM HAVE PLEADED GUILTY, OTHERS ARE STILL HOPING TO FIGHT THOSE CHARGES. THIS CASE, HUFFMAN’S CASE, IS ALSO BROUGHT TO LIGHT HOW OTHER WOMEN HAVE BEEN TREATED IN THE PAST IN THE U.S. WHEN THEY FACED A SIMILAR CRIME. FOR EXAMPLE, TANYA McDOWELL A HOMELESS WOMAN IN CONNECTICUT, WAS SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS IN PRISON AFTER ILLEGALLY ENROLLING HER 5-YEAR-OLD IN A SCHOOL IN KINDERGARTEN THAT WAS OUT OF DISTRICT. IN THIS CASE, THE WOMAN WAS BLACK, SHE WAS OF LOWER SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS. PROSECUTORS SAY THAT THEY WANTED HUFFMAN TO RECEIVE JAIL TIME TO DETER WEALTHY PARENTS IN THE FUTURE FROM CONSIDERING BRIBES OF THEIR OWN.

AND THAT’S LIKE SIX FLIGHTS OF STAIRS.>>Anita: FRUSTRATION IS BUILDING FOR RESIDENTS OF AN SRO WHO SAY THE BUILDING’S ELEVATOR HAS BEEN BROKEN FOR MONTHS. THE BUILDING IS OWNED BY PROMINENT VANCOUVER BUSINESS WOMAN JACKIE COHEN WHO OWNS ARMY & NAVY N A STAPLE, COHEN SAYS SHE’S COMMITTED TO MAKING SURE THE PROBLEM IS RECTIFIED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.>>I’VE DONE IN MY WHOLE LIFE, AND THE FOREST INDUSTRY AS A WHOLE IS SHRINKING. THE IDEA THAT I’LL BE ABLE TO GO FIND A JOB IN ANOTHER SAWMILL OR THIS INDUSTRY IS PROBABLY UNLIKELY.>>Mike: SAWMILL JOB LOSSES ARE MOUNTING WITH THE CLOSURE OF YET ANOTHER BC MILL. THE TULCO MILL NEAR KELOWNA IS SHUTTING DOWN, PUTTING ALMOST 130 PEOPLE OUT OF WORK. APPROXIMATELY 6,000 WORKERS, 25 MILLS, IN 22 COMMUNITIES HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY CLOSURES, LAYOFFS, OR SHIFT REDUCTIONS.>>HOW DOES IT EVEN HAPPEN? HOW DOES A BEAR GET INTO SOMEBODY’S CAR AND LOCK THE DOOR?>>Anita: A FAIR QUESTION. POLICE WERE CALLED WHEN SOMEONE DISCOVERED THIS BLACK BEAR IN AN SUV. IT COULDN’T GET OUT SO CONSERVATION OFFICERS WERE CALLED IN TO HELP FREE IT AND SEND IT ON ITS WAY. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Anita: MORE THAN HALF OF CANADIANS WANT THE NEXT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO CONTINUE ON AND FINISH THE TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE EXPANSION, ACCORDING TO A NEW POLL. THE ANGUS REID ONLINE SURVEY FOUND 53% OF CANADIANS WANT THE PROJECT TO GO AHEAD WHILE 24 WANT IT STOPPED. DESPITE THE SUPPORT FOR THE PROJECT, OVER 60% SEE RENEWABLE ENERGY AS A HUGE OPPORTUNITY FOR CANADA. FOUR IN TEN BELIEVE THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE DOING MORE TO INCREASE THE PIPELINE CAPACITY, WHILE A THIRD BELIEVE IT’S PUSHING THE PROJECT TOO MUCH. MORE THAN 1500 PEOPLE PARTICIPATED IN THE SURVEY CONDUCTED IN AUGUST.>>Mike: WHETHER IT’S INCENTIVES FOR SMALL BUSINESSES, TAXI BREAKS, OR THE ABILITY OF CANADIAN FAMILIES TO SAVE MORE OF IT, MONEY IS AT THE CORE OF THE MESSAGES FROM THE THREE TOP POLITICAL LEADERS TODAY. CONSERVATIVE LEADER ANDREW SCHEER BEGAN THE DAY AT A TRANSIT STOP IN MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO. HE SAYS HE’LL BRING BACK THE PUBLIC TRANSIT TAX CREDIT THAT WAS SCRAPPED BY THE LIBERALS IF HE BECOMES PRIME MINISTER. LATER, SCHEER HELD ANOTHER EVENT IN TORONTO WHERE HE REPEATED HIS PROMISE TO GET RID OF THE GST FROM THE PRICE OF HEATING YOUR HOME. FOR HIS PART, NDP LEADER JAGMEET SINGH WAS ALSO TALKING DOLLARS AND CENTS IN TORONTO. HE STARTED THE DAY PROMISING TO PUT A PRICE CAP ON CELLPHONE AND INTERNET SERVICES. LATER, HE DELIVERED A SPEECH AT TORONTO’S CANADIAN CLUB, PROMISING TO RAISE TAXES ON CORPORATIONS AND WEALTHY CANADIANS. LIBERAL LEADER JUSTIN TRUDEAU BEGAN THE DAY IN TROIS-RIVIÈRES, QUÉBEC. HE’S PROMISING GRANTS OF UP TO $50,000 FOR UP TO 2,000 ENTREPRENEURS EACH FOR A YEAR TO BUILD START-UPS. TRUDEAU IS HOLDING ANOTHER RALLY IN MONTRÉAL THIS EVENING.>>Anita: THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN IS JUST DAYS OLD, AND ALREADY IT’S BECOMING VERY CLEAR HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR PARTIES TO VET THEIR CANDIDATES. BECAUSE THEIR OPPONENTS ARE BOUND TO FIND WHATEVER OLD ONLINE POSTS THEY MISS.>>Mike: AS KATIE SIMPSON SHOWS US, THAT THREW SOME LEADERS OFF MESSAGE AGAINST TODAY.>>Reporter: ANDREW SCHEER STOOD BY HIS CANDIDATE RUNNING IN A KEY ONTARIO RIDING, EVEN THOUGH ARPAN HAD TO APOLOGIZE TODAY FOR A HOMOPHOBIC SOCIAL MEDIA POST HE PUBLISHED BACK IN 2010. HE’S ALSO DEFENDING THIS CANDIDATE AFTER SHARING AN ISLAMOPHOBIC TWEET FROM 2013.>>TWO LOCAL CANDIDATES THAT YOU MENTIONED HERE HAVE APOLOGIZED FOR THEIR MESSAGES, AND I ACCEPT THEIR APOLOGY. I’M GLAD THAT THEY HAVE DONE THAT.>>Reporter: SCHEER WAS LESS FOR GIVING OF A THIRD CANDIDATE RUNNING IN MANITOBA, FIRING HIM FOR ISLAMOPHOBIC COMMENTS HE MADE ONLINE. WHILE THIS IS NOT WHAT SCHEER WANTS TO TALK ABOUT, BY NO MEANS IS THIS JUST A CONSERVATIVE PROBLEM.>>I FIND THAT UNACCEPTABLE, AND AS I SAID HIS POSITION IN THE PARTY IS BEING REVETTED.>>Reporter: THE GREENS WERE CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY AN ANTIABORTION COMMENT FROM ONE CANDIDATE AND FIRED ANOTHER FOR POSTING ABOUT SENDING A PIG CARCASS TO MUSLIMS. THE LIBERALS BOOTED A QUÉBEC IMAM OVER ONLINE COMMENTS HE MADE ON ISRAEL. AND THIS NDP CANDIDATE WAS DROPPED OFF FLIPPANT AND BE AGGRESSIVE WORDS AIMED AT OIL WORKERS WERE DISCOVERED ONLINE.>>THERE’S NO EXCUSE FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.>>Reporter: SOME OF THESE INCIDENTS WERE UNEARTHED BY OTHER POLITICAL PARTIES.>>I MEAN, CLEARLY IF YOU’RE YOUR OWE FOR THE MOST PART CAN FIND STUPID THINGS YOUR CANDIDATE SAID, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THEM TOO.>>Reporter: SOME VOTERS SEEM WILLING TO LOOK PAST OLDER POSTS.>>PEOPLE DO CHANGE. THEY MIGHT HAVE SAID SOME THINGS THAT IN THE PAST THAT MAYBE THEY’VE REGRET BECAUSE THEIR VIEWS HAVE CHANGED.>>I THINK [INDISCERNIBLE] MADE THE COMMENT AND HOW THEY KNEEL ABOUT WHATEVER IT IS THEY SAID NO.>>SOMETIMES THESE THINGS CAN GET SPUN OUT OF CONTEXT.>>Reporter: PARTISAN RESEARCH TEAMS SPEND MONTHS DIGGING UP DIRT ON THEIR OPPONENTS, WAITING FOR THE PERFECT TIME TO STRIKE. OF THIS WILL ONLY BECOME MORE INTENSE AS ELECTION DAY GETS CLOSER. KATIE SIMPSON, CBC NEWS, BRAMPTON, ONTARIO.>>Anita: AT 6:33, A LIVE LOOK AT CAMBIE STREET IN VANCOUVER. THE WEEKEND IS HERE, BUT SO IS THE RAIN. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Mike: THEY ARE THE KIND OF TREKS THAT DRAW TOURISTS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD. MAYBE IT’S THE WEST COAST TRAIL, THE JUAN DE FUCA TRAIL, OR EVEN THE GRUELLING NORTH COAST TRAIL.>>Anita: AS THE CBC’S ADAM VANDERSWAN INTRODUCES US TO A GROUP OF HIKERS WHO DON’T EXACTLY FIT THE MOLD OF OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS.>>BACKPACKING TRIP SEVEN ON THE JUAN DE FUCA –>>Reporter: YOU’D THINK THESE FORMERLY HOMELESS MEN WOULD BE TIRED OF THE OUTDOORS BUT THIS HIKE IS DIFFERENT. THESE PEOPLE ARE FRIENDS ON A JOURNEY OF PERSONAL GROWTH AND DISCOVERY.>>I’VE BEEN HOMELESS MORE THAN ONE TIME IN MY LIFE. SLEEPING OUTDOORS CAN BE FUN IF YOU’RE IN A GOOD ENVIRONMENT. BUT WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE ANY SAFETY TO RETURN TO, CAN BE SORT OF THREATENING AND DEMORALIZING, ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE REALLY UNSURE ABOUT HOW YOU GOT THERE.>>Reporter: ALI, WHOSE FULL NAME THE CBC HAS AGREED TO WITHHOLD, SAYS HIS TIME LIVING ROUGH LED HIM TO A SUPPORT HOME FOR THOSE WHO LIVE IN POVERTY. THERE HE WAS INVITED TO BE PART OF A SET OF GROUP OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES ENDING IN A FOUR-DAY HIKE THROUGH THE JUAN DE FUCA MARINE TRAIL. IT WOULD CHANGE HIS PERSPECTIVE ON SLEEPING OUTDOORS.>>WE GOT TO COOK GREAT MEALS TOGETHER, WE GOT TO SIT AND DRINK TEA TOGETHER AND SHARE STORIES TOGETHER.>>Reporter: KEN WILY RUNS THE MOUNTAINS FOR GROWTH PROGRAM. FOR YEARS, HE’S WORKED AS A GUIDE IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS. HE SAYS BEING OUT IN NATURE IS A POWERFUL TOOL FOR LEARNING ABOUT YOURSELF.>>CONNECTION TO SELF IS TIME ALONE IN NATURE WHERE WE JUST HAVE TIME TO PONDER AND BE WITH THE ENVIRONMENT OURSELVES. AND BEING WITH OTHERS.>>Reporter: WILY STARTED THE PROGRAM AFTER AN EYE OPENING WALK THROUGH DOWNTOWN VICTORIA WHERE HE WAS STRUCK BY HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE LIVE ON THE STREET.>>I THOUGHT WOW, THERE’S SOMETHING THAT I NEED TO DO HERE BUT I’M NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT.>>Reporter: WILY SOON CONNECTED WITH ANAWIN HOUSE TO BRING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES TO THOSE TRANSITIONING BACK TO A HEALTHY LIFE. LAST YEAR WAS THE FIRST TIME A SMALL GROUP OF MENEM BARKED ON THEIR JOURNEY, CHAIRED STORIES WITH EACH OTHER, AND LEARNED THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO OVERALCOHOL A CHALLENGE. THE DIRECTOR OF ANAWIN HOUSE JUST RETURNED FROM THIS YEAR’S HIKING TRIP AND SAYS THIS PROGRAM IS INVALUABLE.>>I WORK CLOSELY WITH OUR GUYS AND I HEARD THINGS THAT I HAVE NEVER HEARD. IN THE WHOLE FEELING OF TRUST, COMPANIONSHIP, FELLOWSHIP.>>Reporter: FOR ALI, HE SAYS BEING OUTDOORS AMONG FRIENDS HE TRUSTS REALLY CHANGED HIS VIEW OF HIMSELF. HE LEARNED HE COULD BE A GOOD LISTENER AND HELP THOSE WHO NEED A SHOULDER.>>I THINK ANYTHING THAT CHALLENGES US TO GET OUTSIDE OF OUR COMFORT ZONE AND BE TOGETHER WITH OTHER PEOPLE AND GET ACTIVE AND TRUST OTHERS IS GOOD FOR PERSONAL GROWTH.>>I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO CAMPING AGAIN.>>Reporter: ADAM VANDERSWAN, CBC NEWS, VICTORIA.>>Anita: A FULL DOCUMENTARY.>>Mike: THAT’S TOMORROW AT 7:00 IN THE EVENING HERE ON CBC TELEVISION.>>Anita: IT’S ALSO AVAILABLE STARTING TODAY ON GEM, WHICH IS OUR STREAMING PLATFORM. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Mike: BRETT IS HERE.>>Brett: I FEEL LIKE I’M NOT A VERY POPULAR GUY.>>Mike: AND YOU YOUR WEEKEND RAIN.>>Brett: I THINK I NEED TO GO INTO HIDING. THERE’S RAIN COMING. AGAIN, I TRY TO BE THAT GUY THAT SAYS WE NEED IT. BUT I FEEL FOR THOSE. LIKE THOSE HIKERS, IF YOU NEEDED TO DO SOME HIKING, IT MIGHT BE MORE CHALLENGING.>>Anita: I LIKE IT. COSY UP IN A BLANKET V THE FIREPLACE ON, LIGHT A CANDLE.>>YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THIS MORNING PLAYED OUT HERE OVER THE NORTH SHORE MOUNTAINS. I PRESUME THERE ARE MOUNTAINS. YOU WOULDN’T REALLY BE ABLE TO SEE THEM. IN HAD PARTICULAR CASE, FAST-MOVING CLOUDS COMING IN. THAT WOULD BE REMNANTS OF THE FRONT THAT SWEPT THROUGH LAST NIGHT, BRINGING SHOWERS TODAY. AND WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT NOW, THAT MAY VERY WELL WHAT ABOUT WE’RE EXPECTING THIS WEEKEND. I WANTED TO WALK YOU THROUGH WHY IT’S NOT GOING TO BE A COMPLETE WASHOUT OF A WEEKEND, BUT THERE WILL BE MORE RAIN THAN ANYTHING ELSE. SATURDAY MORNING, AS IT COMES THROUGH, WE’LL START WITH SPOTTY SHOWERS. THEY’RE GOING TO BE QUITE LOCALIZED. IN THE EVENING, SPECIFICALLY AROUND 8:00, THIS IS WHERE THINGS ARE GOING TO START TO RAMP UP. WE’LL SEE HEAVIER RAINFALL BUT PREDOMINANTLY AND FORTUNATELY IN SOME CASES JUST IN THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY, WHERE THE HEAVIEST RAIN IS GOING TO BE FALLING, ESPECIALLY OVER THE NORTH SHORE MOUNTAINS. THROUGHOUT SUNDAY IT IS GOING TO BE GRADUALLY EASE BEING. WE ARE EXPECTING A FEW SPOTTY SHOWERS BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO BE A COMPLETE WASHOUT OF A DAY. BY THE TIME WE GET INTO MONDAY, WE MIGHT SEE SUN RETURN. WOULDN’T THAT BE NICE. IN TERMS OF RAINFALL TOTALS, I WANT YOU TO KEEP IN MIND THIS IS FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND. YOU’LL SEE SOME COLOURS ON HERE THAT MAYBE WE HAVEN’T SEEN FOR A LITTLE WHILE. SPECIFICALLY FOR METRO VANCOUVER. I WOULD BALLPARK THIS AT 20 TO 40 MILLIMETRES OF RAIN FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND. PLACES, COQUITLAM AND MAPLE RIDGE, YOU’LL PROBABLY GET A LITTLE BIT MORE. DOWN INTO THE VALLEY AS WELL WE’D BE LOOKING AT A COMFORTABLE 40 OR SO. IN TERMS OF THAT, THERE IS OF COURSE ANOTHER ASPECT THAT IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO MENTION HERE. WE HAVE SOME STRONG WINDS COMING AND ESPECIALLY EVEN FOR VANCOUVER AND AROUND TSAWWASSEN. WE’RE LOOKING AT STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS COMING. THAT COULD BE POTENTIALLY 50 KM/HR BY SATURDAY EVENING. KEEP THAT IN MIND ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE ANY SAILINGS TO BE WORRYING ABOUT. TEMPERATURES ALL ACROSS THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE PROVINCE ARE GOING TO BE ON THE COOL SIDE. IN TERMS OF YOUR FIVE-DAY FORECAST, MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF SUN COME MONDAY. GUESS WHAT, JUST IN TIME FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY, ANOTHER SYSTEM BRINGING US MORE RAIN. ISN’T THAT FUN?>>Anita: A LOT OF FUN. CAN’T WAIT. THANK YOU. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Mike: IN VICTORIA, THE VANCOUVER CANUCKS TRAINING CAMP STARTED TODAY. A CHANCE FOR FANS WHO DON’T NORMALLY GET TO SEE THEIR FAVOURITE NHL STARS DURING THE SEASON TO WATCH THEM UP CLOSE, LIKE BO HORVAT, ELIAS PETTERSSON, AND QUINN HUGHES. THERE HE IS, ONE CANUCK STAR WHO IS NOTABLY ABSENT. JAMIE FARREN EXPLAINS WHY A SIMILAR SCENE IS PLAYING OUT ACROSS THE LEAGUE.>>YOU DON’T WANT TO THINK ABOUT GOING INTO THE SEASON WITHOUT MITCH ON THE ROSTER.>>Reporter: FOR TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS MEN GENERAL MANAGER KYLE DUBAS, IT’S THE UNAVOIDABLE TRAINING CAMP TOPIC. MITCH MARNER IS LOOKING FOR A BIG PAYDAY.>>I WOULD FEEL A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY IF THERE WEREN’T OTHER SITUATIONS AROUND THE LEAGUE THAT WERE SORT OF IN THE SAME STALEMATE OF A POSITION.>>SCORES! SHOOTS, SCORES!>>HERE’S MARNER, SCORES!>>Reporter: DUBAS IS RIGHT. A NUMBER OF CANADIAN TEAMS ARE CURRENTLY LOCKED IN TENSE MULTIMILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT TALKS. IN VANCOUVER, IT’S BROCK BOESER. WINNIPEG HAS A PAIR OF STARS UNSIGNED: PATRIK LAINE AND KYLE CONNOR.>>PLAYERS WANT A BIGGER PIECE OF A PIE THAT CONTINUES TO GROW. CONSIDER THIS: IN THE LAST 12 YEARS NHL REVENUES HAVE DOUBLED. RECENTLY SEATTLE PAID $860 MILLION FOR AN EXPANSION FRANCHISE. AT THE SAME TIME, PLAYERS SEE THIS GROWTH CONTINUING TO RAMP UPWARDS AND WANT SHORT, LUCRATIVE CONTRACTS.>>WHEN HE THEY GET THEIR FREE AGENT STATUS, THEY THINK THAT’S WHEN THEY’RE GOING TO HIT PAY DIRT. SO THEY DON’T WANT TO BE LOCKED IN.>>Reporter: THERE’S A LOT MORE MONEY COMING DOWN THE PIPE. A NEW GAMBLING DEAL MEANS HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS AND A RICH NEW TELEVISION DEAL IS ON THE HORIZON. AND IF YOU’RE A STAR PLAYER IN THE NHL, IT’S A GREAT TIME TO BE ON THE ICE. JAMIE STRACHAN, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Anita: MARNER DID SIGN THIS AFTERNOON.>>Mike: HE JUST SIGNED AWHILE AGO, MITCH MARNER –>>Anita: 65.3 MILLION.>>Mike: FOR SIX YEARS. SO THE SPECULATION IS THAT WILL NOW TRIGGER THE OTHER FREE AGENTS TO SIGN. WAIT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH BROCK BOESER AND THE CANUCKS.>>>IT BECAME A SYMBOL OF THE WRATH OF A HURRICANE. SO WHY IS A DESTROYED CRANE DRAWING A CROWD IN HALIFAX? WE’LL TELL YOU WHY>>Mike: IN THE MARITIMES TONIGHT, THE CLEANUP AFTER HURRICANE DORIAN CONTINUES.>>Anita: LAST WEEKEND’S STORM TOPPLED A MASSIVE CONSTRUCTION CRANE LIKE A TOY, LEAVING THE METAL STRUCTURE WRAPPED OVER A BUILDING.>>Mike: NOW AS COLLEEN JONES EXPLAINS, THE SYMBOL OF DEVASTATION IS DRAWING A CROWD.>>Reporter: WITH NECKS CRANED UPWARDS AND THIS CRANE FACING DOWNWARDS, WELCOME TO HALIFAX’S NEW TOURIST ATTRACTION.>>I HEARD IT MADE THE NEWS ALL OVER THE WORLD.>>Reporter: THIS NEW YORK COUPLE CAME HOPING TO SEE THE FALL COLOURS, NOT A FALLING CRANE.>>IS THIS NOT ON YOUR TOURIST ATTRACTION TO HALIFAX?>>NO, IT’S NOT. NO. YOU NEED TO UPDATE THAT.>>I TOOK SOME PICTURES.>>Reporter: WITH A FEAR THAT IT COULD SNAP, PICTURES WERE SNAPPED.>>FASCINATING, INDEED. I’VE NOT SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE.>>THAT’S CRAZY.>>Reporter: CHRIS CAME DOWN TO SEE EVERYBODY WHAT IS TALKING ABOUT.>>>IS THIS THE LATEST SPECTATOR SPORT IN CANADA?>>RIGHT NOW IT IS. RIGHT NOW IT IS.>>Reporter: CRANE WATCHING. CRANE WATCHING IS USUALLY SOMETHING THIS GUY DOES ONLINE.>>>HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS?>>NO. ON YOUTUBE. GO TO YOUTUBE, CRANE COLLAPSES. THERE’S A LOT OF REALLY INTERESTING.>>Reporter: BUT TO SEE IT FOR REAL, THAT’S ANOTHER THING. SO PEOPLE ARE TWISTING AND CRANING THEIR NECKS TO GET A LOOK AT THE VERY TWISTED CRANE.>>>SURPRISED HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE HERE?>>I DIDN’T EXPECT THAT.>>Reporter: EVEN THE HARBOUR HOPPER CITY TOUR SLOWED DOWN FOR THIS. THIS IS ONE TOURIST ATTRACTION THAT WILL SOON DISAPPEAR.>>A LITTLE SCARY.>>Reporter: THEY’LL START THE DELICATE PROCESS OF GETTING THE CRANE DOWN SO RUBBER NECK WHILE YOU CAN. COLLEEN JONES, CBC NEWS, HALIFAX. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Anita: SOME MAY SAY IT’S HARD NOT TO BE INTRIGUED ABOUT A MOVIE OF EXOTIC DANCERS PLOTTING TO TAKE ON THEIR WALL STREET CLIENTS.>>Mike: JENNIFER LOPEZ LEADS A TALENTED CAST OF HUSTLERS WHICH WAS INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY. ELI GLASNER HAS THE REVIEW.>>HEY, THESE ARE MY SISTERS.>>Reporter: HUSTLERS IS THE MOVIE YOU EXPECT, BUT SO MUCH MORE. BASED ON A TRUE STORY, WE START WITH CONSTANCE WU AS DESTINY. THE NEW GIRL JUST LOOKING FOR A WAY TO SUPPORT HERSELF.>>I JUST WANT TO TAKE CARE OF MY GRANDMA, MAYBE GO SHOPPING EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE.>>Reporter: IT’S 2007 AND THIS SWANKY NEW YORK CITY NIGHTCLUB IS STACKED WITH WEALTHY STOCKBROKERS LOOKING TO SPEND. THE POWER PACK CAST ALSO FEATURES LIZZO, CARDI B, AND MORE, BUT EVERYTHING STOPS WHEN JENNIFER LOPEZ SWANS IN AS RAMONA. ONE NIGHT DESTINY AND RAMONA ARE HAVING A HEART TO HEART, STARTING WITH RAMONA TALKING ABOUT HER GLORY DAYS.>>WOW.>>Reporter: SHE’S ALSO A SAVVY OPERATOR AND SOON TAKES DESTINY UNDER HER WING, TEACHING HER HOW TO WORK THE POLE AND KEEP THE CUSTOMERS SPENDING. IT’S ALL GOING GREAT UNTIL THE FINANCIAL CRISIS OF 2008. SUDDENLY THE CLUBS ARE EMPTY AND RAMONA IS LOOKING TO EVEN THE SCORE.>>YOU GOT TO START THINKING LIKE THESE WALL STREET GUYS. YOU SEE WHAT THEY DID TO THIS COUNTRY? THEY STOLE FROM EVERYBODY. HARD-WORKING PEOPLE LOST EVERYTHING. AND NOT ONE OF THESE DOUCHE BAGS WENT TO JAIL. NOT ONE. IS THAT FAIR?>>Reporter: DESTINY AND RAMONA’S CREW GO OUT TO BARS LOOKING FOR RICH, GULLIBLE MEN TO DRUG AND RUN UP THEIR CREDIT CARDS. SO A FILM THAT STARTS LIKE THE FEMALE MAGIC MIKE EDGES CLOSER TO SOMETHING LIKE “GOOD FELLAS”. WE CAUGHT UP WITH JENNIFER LOPEZ ON THE RED CARPET AND SHE TOLD US WHAT MAKES THIS FILM SPECIAL IS EVEN THOUGH THE WOMEN ARE PERFORMING FOR MEN, THEY’RE ALWAYS IN CONTROL.>>IT’S IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT’S ALL FEMALE STAR AND CAST. IT’S ALL FEMALE PRODUCERS. IT’S A FEMALE DIRECTOR. AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE DON’T GET TO SEE EVERY DAY IN HOLLYWOOD. THIS IS REALLY — LIKE A LITTLE MINI MIRACLE IN A SENSE. AND BEYOND THAT, THE STORY ITSELF TAKES A REAL LOOK AT MEN AND WOMEN AND HOW WE’RE TREATED TO DIFFERENTLY IN SOCIETY AND LOOKED AT SO DIFFERENTLY OF THE THINGS WE HAVE TO DO FOR SURVIVAL.>>Reporter: THE DIRECTOR IS THE WOMAN CALLING THE SHOTS AND WHAT SHE CAPTURED IS THE CAMARADERIE BACKSTAGE, ESPECIALLY FROM JENNIFER LOPEZ, WHO IS WARM AND PROTECTIVE UNTIL THE CRIMES START CATCHING UP. JENNIFER LOPEZ OSCAR NOMINEE? PREPARE YOURSELF. IT COULD HAPPEN. FOUR STARS OUT OF FIVE. ELI GLASSENER, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Mike: OSCAR NOMINEE? OKAY. WHEN HE COMPARED IT TO “GOOD FELLAS”, YOU KIND OF KNOW WHERE HE’S GOING.>>Anita: ARE YOU GOING TO WATCH IT?>>Mike: MAYBE.>>Anita: SAVING SONGBIRDS. HOW A VANCOUVER GROUP IS TAKING ACTION TO HELP THE VANISHING CREATURES AFTER THE BREAK. THEY’RE THE MOST STUDIED AND FAMOUS WHALE FAMILY IN THE WORLD. WHAT’S PUSHING J POD TO THE BRINK? I’M GLORIA MACARENKO, HOST OF THE NEW CBC BRITISH COLUMBIA ORIGINAL PODCAST “KILLERS”. IS IT TOO LATE TO SAVE THEM? [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Mike: SONGBIRDS ARE ON THE DECLINE WORLDWIDE, BUT A TEAM OF RESEARCHERS AND VOLUNTEERS IS WORKING TO PROTECT AND GROW BIRD POPULATIONS.>>Anita: MEET THE BIRD LOVERS BEHIND THE VANCOUVER AVIAN RESEARCH CENTRE. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>MY NAME IS DERIC MATTHEWS, CHAIR OF THE VANCOUVER AVIAN RESEARCH CENTRE. THE VANCOUVER AVIAN RESEARCH CENTRE IS A REGISTERED CANADIAN CHARITY AND VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO WILD BIRD RESEARCH, CONSERVATION, AND EDUCATION. DURING BANDING SESSIONS WILD BIRDS ARE [INDISCERNIBLE] WHAT HAPPENS IS BIRDS ARE FLYING THROUGH THE BRUSH. THEY FLY INTO THE NET AND THEN THEY’RE BASICALLY RESTRAINED, AS YOU CAN SEE, IN THIS LONG POCKET. WE EXTRACT THE BIRD AND POP THEM INTO THESE SOFT CLOTH BAGS. WHEN BIRDS ARRIVE AT THE PAGODA, THE BIRD IS IDENTIFIED TO SPECIES. IT’S THEN BANDED USING THE UNIQUELY-NUMBERED ALUMINUM BAND.>>761. 85578.>>Reporter: THE BAND IS THEN ATTACHED TO THE BIRD, AND THE BIRD WILL WEAR THAT BAND FOR THE REST OF ITS LIFE. SO IF THE BIRD IS RECAPTURED BY US OR ANOTHER STATION OR FOUND DEAD, WE KNOW PART OF THE BIRD’S LIFE HISTORY. YEAR OVER YEAR, WE TRAP ABOUT 25% OF OUR BIRDS. THAT CAN OBVIOUSLY TELL YOU A LOT ABOUT HABITAT, FIDELITY, FLIGHT FIDELITY. THRUSHES ARE LON DISTANCE MIGRANTS. WE HAD ONE BIRD WE TRAPPED 22 TIMES. SOMETIMES IN THE VERY SAME NET. SO IF YOU THINK ABOUT THAT, THESE BIRDS ARE GOING TO CENTRAL SOUTH AMERICA, COMING ALL THE WAY BACK NOT JUST TO THE LOWER MAINLAND OR PORT COQUITLAM OR EVEN TO COME ANY FARM, BUT TO VERY SPECIFIC AREAS INSIDE THE PARK, WHICH AGAIN IS WHY IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO SAFEGUARD HABITAT FOR THESE RETURNING BREEDING BIRDS. THE BIRDS TRAVEL IN COMMON SPECIES ARE IN DECLINE ALL AROUND THE GLOBE. 1469 SPECIES. THAT’S ONE IN EIGHT OF THE WORLD’S BIRDS ARE THREATENED WITH EXTINCTION. THOSE THREATS INCLUDE HABITAT DEGRADATION, CLIMATE CHANGE, LIGHT POLLUTION, PLASTIC POLLUTION CONTINUES WORLDWIDE, CONTINUED AND WIDESPREAD USE OF PESTICIDES ACROSS THE AGRICULTURAL LANDSCAPE. IT’S ALSO HAD A DEVASTATING EFFECT ON BARN SWALLOWS WHO DECLINED MORE THAN 80% IN THE LAST TWO DECADES. LOCAL AND REGIONAL PARKS FORM CRITICAL OWE SAYSIS OF BREEDING OF BIRDS AND NONE MORE SO THAN COLONY FARM WHICH COMPRISES OF OLD FIELD HABITAT WHICH IS UNIQUE IN THE LOWER MAINLAND. DEVELOPED SUITABLE HABITAT IN YOUR GARDENS, EVEN TINY PIECES OF NATURE IN FRAGMENTED LANDSCAPE. IN ADDITION TO COLLECTING DATA TO SAFEGUARD HABITAT FOR BIRDS, IT PROVIDES LOTS OF PUBLIC OUTREACH AND AWARENESS. WE DO THAT THROUGH PROGRAMS WHICH NOW INCLUDE SCHOOL PROGRAMS AS WELL. THE PURPOSE OF THESE EVENTS IS TO REALLY RAISE THE AWARENESS OF THESE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, HANDS ON INTERACTION WITH WILD BIRDS. PEOPLE CAN COME DOWN, GET INVOLVED, AND EXPERIENCE AND UNDERSTAND WHAT A MARVEL IT IS THESE BIRDS HAVE UNDERTAKEN THESE TREMENDOUSLY LONG JOURNEYS. PEOPLE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. AND THAT’S REALLY WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO DO HERE.>>Mike: YOU’RE A BIT OF A BIRDER.>>Anita: EVERY TIME WE HAVE A BIRD STORY, I JUST LOVE IT. I CAN LOOK AT THEM FOR HOURS. GREAT PROJECT.>>Mike: REALLY IS. THE WEEKEND IS HERE. THAT’S IT FOR US. JUST A REMINDER YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND OUR NEWS PROGRAM ONLINE AT CBC.CA/BC.>>Anita: AND OF COURSE DAN BURR SIT HERE AFTER “THE NATIONAL” AT 11:00. HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.>>Mike: SEE YOU MONDAY.
