The National for June 26, 2019 — China Meat Ban, Migrant Crisis, MLB in Montreal

The National for June 26, 2019 — China Meat Ban, Migrant Crisis, MLB in Montreal


(*)>>Adrienne: TONIGHT, GROWING TROUBLE.>>IF THE BAN CONTINUES WE’LL HAVE AN OVERSUPPLY OF PORK.>>Adrienne: THE RCMP INVESTIGATES AS CHINA SUSPENDS CANADIAN MEAT IMPORTS. ANOTHER CONFLICT FOR THE TWO LEADERS JUST AHEAD OF THE G20.>>I DON’T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER PICTURE LIKE THAT.>>Adrienne: THE SHOCKING PICTURE AT THE CENTRE OF THE U.S. MIGRANT CRISIS. BUT WILL IT MOVE THE POLITICIANS TO ACT? (*)>>THEY SHOULD BE ADDRESSING THIS EARLY ON.>>Adrienne: AND WHY MORE YOUNG CANADIANS ARE TAKING THEIR MENTAL HEALTH CONCERNS TO THE E.R. WE’RE LOOKING AT THE STRESSORS AND THE SOLUTIONS.>>>THIS IS “THE NATIONAL.” (*) (*)>>>LAST NIGHT’S THREAT IS NOW TODAY’S REALITY. BEIJING HAS STOPPED BUYING THIS COUNTRY’S MEAT. SOMEONE USED FAKE CANADIAN DOCUMENTS TO SHIP PORK TO CHINA. THAT PORK CONTAINED A SUBSTANCE THAT CHINA DOESN’T ALLOW. AND NOW THE RCMP IS ON THE CASE AND THE TIMING, NOT GREAT, JUST AS THE PRIME MINISTER AND THE CHINESE PRESIDENT HEAD TO THE G20 SUMMIT. WE WILL GET TO THAT. BUT, FIRST, ALLISON DEMPSTER HAS THE VIEW FROM AFAR.>>Reporter: AT THIS FARM IN CENTRAL ALBERTA, HOGS ARE GETTING FATTENED UP FOR MARKET. THESE DAYS CHINA MAKES UP ABOUT 20% OF THE MARKET FOR CANADIAN PORK. SO FAR THIS YEAR PRODUCERS HAVE EXPORTED MORE THAN $300 MILLION WORTH. AND THEY WERE HOPING TO SELL A LOT MORE.>>IT’S DISAPPOINTING TO KNOW THAT, YOU KNOW, CORNERS WERE CUT OR SOMETHING HAD HAPPENED OR WAS FORGED.>>Reporter: JESSICA FASOLI HAS A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE BATCH OF PROBLEM PORK. SHE RAISES HER PIGS ON FEED WITHOUT GROWTH ADDITIVES AND HAS THE DOCUMENTS TO PROVE IT. FASOLI STEERS CLEAR OF ONE DRUG IN PARTICULAR KNOWN AS A MUSCLE DRUG.>>WE AS CANADIAN FARMER GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE RACTOPAMINE FREE.>>Reporter: AND IT’S AN ADDITIVE THAT WAS DETECTED IN A BATCH OF PORK PRODUCTS, PROMPTING THEM TO SUSPEND ALL PORK PRODUCTS AND INCLUDING MEAT. WHILE CHINA IS A SMALL PART OF THE BEEF PRODUCERS, AMOUNTING TO JUST 2%, THEY STILL WANT TO SEE THE SUSPENSION LIFTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.>>THIS IS AN ISSUE WITH PORK SO WE HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATING WITH THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT WHO IS INVESTIGATING WHY THESE HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE EXPORT CERTIFICATE HALT.>>The Hon. Ralph Goodale: WE TAKE OUR FOOD INSPECTION WITH THE GREATEST OF SERIOUSNESS AND WE WILL NOT TOLERATE ANYTHING THAT DETRACTS FROM OUR REPUTATION.>>Reporter: HOG FARMERS WELCOME THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S INVESTIGATION BUT THEY SAY THAT TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.>>IF THE BAN CONTINUES TO BE IN PLACE WE’RE GOING TO HAVE AN OVERSUPPLY OF PORK, A LOT LIKE WHAT THE U.S. HAS HAD. YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PORK IN SUPPLY MEANS THAT THE PRICES DROP.>>Reporter: FASOLI AND OTHER PRODUCERS HOPE THAT THE PRIME MINISTER CAN EASE TRADE TENSIONS IN CHINA AT THE UPCOMING G20 SUMMIT. A LUCRATIVE AND GROWING PORK MARKET DEPENDS ON IT. ALLISON DEMPSTER, CBC NEWS, CALGARY.>>Adrienne: BEFORE ACTING AGAINST CANADIAN MEAT, CHINA HAD ALREADY DECIDED TO STOP IMPORTING OTHER CANADIAN PRODUCTS LIKE CANOLA. SO IT CERTAINLY FUELLED SPECULATION THAT CHINA IS AGAIN RETALIATING AGAINST CANADA FOR ARRESTING A HIGH-PROFILE CHINESE TECH EXECUTIVE. BUT IT’S WORTH GETTING AT THE SPECIFICS BEHIND THIS SUDDEN SUSPENSION.>>THEY USED AN INAUTHENTIC CERTIFICATE. WE WANT TO KNOW WHO IS RESPONSIBLE, WHY THEY’RE RESPONSIBLE.>>Adrienne: AT THE CENTRE ARE HEALTH CERTIFICATES THAT ARE ISSUED WHEN MEAT IS EXPORTED TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. OTTAWA ADMITS THAT BOGUS DOCUMENTS WERE FOUND RECENTLY ATTACHED TO SHIPMENTS OF PORK HEADED TO CHINA. AND THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME.>>IT’S NOT UNPRECEDENTED AND WE’LL BE WORKING AS HARD AS POSSIBLE TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT.>>Adrienne: CHINA STEPPED UP INSPECTIONS A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AFTER DETECTING RACTOPAMINE, THAT FEED ADDITIVE IS BANNED IN CHINA, RUSSIA AND E.U. COUNTRIES BUT LEGAL IN NORTH AMERICA. SO CHINA HAS ALREADY BEEN ON HIGH ALERT ABOUT CANADIAN MEAT PRODUCTS.>>I HOPE AND WE’RE WORKING FOR THAT TO REASSURE OUR TRADING PARTNER IN THIS CASE, CHINA, THAT OUR SYSTEM IS RELIABLE.>>Adrienne: GOOD TIME THEN TO BRING IN CHRIS HALL. HE’S THE CBC’S NATIONAL AFFAIR EDITOR. SO, CHRIS, WE HEARD FROM THE FEDERAL MINISTERS THERE. AND IT SEEMS THAT OTTAWA IS APPROACHING THIS TRADE DISPUTE DIFFERENTLY. HOW SO?>>Reporter: WELL, THE BIG DIFFERENCE IS THAT CHINA AND CANADA AGREE ON THE PROBLEM. IT’S THESE FAKE SRTDS THAT ACCOMPANIED THESE EXPORTS AND THEY’RE WORKING TOGETHER TO TRY TO RESOLVE THE DISPUTE. BUT THAT SAID, ADRIENNE, IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT WILL BE DONE QUICKLY. I’M TOLD THAT IT WOULD BE WEEKS, PERHAPS EVEN LONGER, BEFORE MEAT EXPORTS WOULD BE ALLOWED BACK INTO CHINA. SO IN THE LONG TERM, THE SHORT TERM, THERE’S GOING TO BE REAL PAIN FOR CANADIAN MEAT EXPORTERS.>>Adrienne: STILL ARGUABLY A REALLY AWKWARD MOMENT FOR THE PRIME MINISTER. HE’S ON HIS WAY TO JAPAN FOR THE G20 SUMMIT. WILL JUSTIN TRUDEAU BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT THIS WITH THE PRESIDENT?>>THERE’S NO FORMAL MEETING PLANNED AND THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS THAT HE WAS IN WASHINGTON LAST WEEK TO ASK DONALD TRUMP WITH HIS DISCUSSION WITH XI JINPING TO RAISE THE CASE OF THE TWO DETAINED CANADIANS, BUT THERE’S A OPPORTUNITY, POTENTIALLY. BECAUSE CHINA AND CANADA ARE TRADITIONALLY SEATED TOGETHER. THEIR LEADERS ARE ARRANGED ALPHABETICALLY BY COUNTRY, SO AS THEY WAIT FOR THE FORMAL SESSIONS TO START THERE WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A WORD WITH XI JINPING AND WE’LL HAVE TO JUST WATCH THE BODY LANGUAGE TO SEE IF IT HAPPENS.>>Adrienne: ALL RIGHT, NATIONAL AFFAIRS EDITOR CHRIS HALL IN OTTAWA. THANK YOU, CHRIS.>>Reporter: THANK YOU, ADRIENNE.>>Adrienne: IN THE U.S. THIS HAS BEEN A SOURCE OF SO MUCH DIVISION — THE WALL, THE BORDER WITH MEXICO, AND THE STEADY STREAM OF PEOPLE WHO DEFY IT. THE POLITICAL NOISE CAN BE OVERWHELMING, THE DETAILS PRETTY COMPLICATED. AND THEN AS WE’RE SEEING TODAY ONE PICTURE CAN SUDDENLY PUT IT ALL INTO FOCUS. THAT PICTURE IS DISTURBING. A DAD AND HIS LITTLE GIRL DEAD IN A RIVER, DROWNED REPORTEDLY TRYING JUST TO MAKE IT TO THE U.S. FAIR WARNING THAT WE’RE GOING TO SHOW IT IN A MOMENT BECAUSE AS ELLEN MAURO EXPLAINS IT’S NOT ONLY BREAKING HEARTS TODAY BUT IT’S DRIVING THE CONVERSATION IN WASHINGTON.>>[speaking foreign language].>>Reporter: THE BODIES A YOUNG FATHER AND HIS DAUGHTER NOT YET 2 YEARS OLD CARRIED AWAY. THE GIRL’S MOTHER CRYING IN THE BACKGROUND. THE TWO DIED IN THE RIO GRANDE, THE SCENE CAPTURED IN A HARROWING IMAGE THAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO SEE. OSCAR ALBERTO MARTINEZ RAMIREZ AND HIS DAUGHTER VALERIA, HER ARM RESTING ON HER FATHER’S NECK, HAD TRAVELLED FROM EL SALVADOR. THE BLAME GAME IS FULLY UNDERWAY.>>President Donald Trump: IF WE HAD THE RIGHT LAWS, THOSE PEOPLE WOULDN’T BE COMING UP AND THEY WOULDN’T BE TRYING.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP, I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT THIS PHOTO. THESE ARE NOT DRUG DEALERS OR VAGRANTS OR CRIMINALS. THEY ARE PEOPLE SIMPLY FLEEING A HORRIBLE SITUATION IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY.>>Reporter: MORE THAN 130,000 PEOPLE WERE STOPPED TRYING TO CROSS THE BORDER LAST MONTH ALONE. SO FAR THIS YEAR THE UNITED NATIONS SAYS THAT 170 PEOPLE HAVE DIED OR GONE MISSING ATTEMPTING THE JOURNEY.>>SIMPLY PUT, THE CURRENT HUMANITARIAN CRISIS HAS FORCED US TO PUT BORDER SECURITY AND NATIONAL SECURITY AT RISK.>>Reporter: AND THE PRESSURE IS ON CONGRESS.>>I HOPE THAT PICTURE ALONE WILL CATALYZE THIS CONGRESS, THIS SENATE, THIS COMMITTEE, TO DO SOMETHING.>>Reporter: BUT LAWMAKERS ARE STRUGGLING, DISAGREEMENTS RAGING OVER CONDITIONS AT DETENTION FACILITIES WHERE CHILD MIGRANTS REPORTEDLY LACK FOOD AND PLACES TO BATHE. SOME ANALYSTS ARGUE THAT MIGRANTS ARE BEING DRIVEN IN PART BY PRESIDENT TRUMP’S RHETORIC.>>THERE’S A BELIEF THAT DONALD TRUMP IS AT SOME POINT GOING TO BE ABLE TO CLOSE THE BORDER SO IT WILL BECOME MORE DIFFICULT, SO GO NOW.>>Reporter: MEANWHILE THE GRIEF IS ONLY BEGINNING FOR ROSA MA REAR SAYS, MOURNING A SON AND A GRANDDAUGHTER GONE TOO SOON. ALL THEY WANTED, SHE SAYS, WAS A BETTER FUTURE IN THE UNITED STATES. ELLEN MAURO, CBC NEWS, WASHINGTON.>>Adrienne: FOR MANY WHO SURVIVE THAT JOURNEY, DETENTION FACILITIES ARE THE NEXT STOP. A SIGN OF JUST HOW CONTROVERSIAL THEY ARE? THIS SCENE TODAY.>>WE WILL FIGHT — WE WILL FIGHT — WE WILL FIGHT!>>Adrienne: THOSE ARE EMPLOYEES OF THE ONLINE RETAILER WAYFAIR WHO WALKED OFF THE JOB AFTER THE COMPANY SOLD FURNITURE TO A GROUP THAT RUNS A DETENTION CENTRE FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN. WAYFAIR SAYS THAT IT SELLS TO ANYONE ACTING WITHIN THE LAW, BUT THAT IT WILL ALSO DONATE $100,000 TO THE RED CROSS.>>>NOW BACK TO THIS COUNTRY. FOR THE FIRST TIME TWO FAR-RIGHT GROUPS ACTIVE IN CANADA HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE CRIMINAL CODES OFFICIAL LIST OF TERRORIST ORGINISATIONS.>>The Hon. Ralph Goodale: IT WILL HELP TO FACILITATE THE LAYING OF TERRORISM CHARGES AGAINST PERPETRATORS AND SUPPORTERS OF TERRORISM. IT WILL ALSO HELP TO BLOCK THE FLOW OF FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO TERRORIST GROUPS WHEN SUCH GROUPS USE CANADA’S FINANCIAL SYSTEM.>>Adrienne: THE GROUPS ARE “BLOOD AND HONOUR” AND “COMBAT 18.” IN ANOTHER MEASURE THE GOVERNMENT WILL ALSO COMMIT UP TO A MILLION DOLLARS TO “TECH AGAINST TERRORISM,” IT’S A U.N. INITIATIVE THAT AIMS TO COUNTERTERRORISTS’ USE OF THE INTERNET. CANADA HAS ALREADY FUNDED POSSIBLE TECH SOLUTIONS TO THE SPREAD OF EXTREMISM, INCLUDING $1.5 MILLION TO AN ORGINISATION CALLED “MOONSHOT C.V.E.” FOR A PROJECT THAT IT CALLS “CANADA REDIRECT.” SO WHAT IS THIS REDIRECT PROGRAMME? WELL, AT ITS CORE THE AIM IS TO DISRUPT SOMEONE RIGHT AT THE STAGE WHEN THEY’RE SEARCHING THE NET FOR HATEFUL, POTENTIALLY VIOLENT OR DANGEROUS TERMS OR GROUPS. I SAT DOWN WIT WITH MICAH CLARK OF “MOONSHOT” THAT WORKS IN 26 COUNTRIES AND HAS JUST STARTED WORKING IN CANADA. WHEN YOU HEAR ABOUT PEOPLE IN CANADA SEARCHING HATE, WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? IT LOOKS LIKE THIS. THE MOST VILE OF WORD CLOUDS.>>WELL, WE’LL OFTEN SEE THINGS THAT ARE TARGETING A PARTICULAR ETHNIC GROUP, GENDER IDENTITY, THINGS ALONG THOSE LINES. ANTI-HOMOSEXUAL SEARCH TRAFFIC IS QUITE ELEVATED.>>Adrienne: REALLY?>>YEAH, THE PREPONDERANCE OF ANTI-HOMOSEXUAL SEARCH TRAFFIC IN CANADA HAS BEEN PRETTY HIGH.>>Adrienne: WORDS ALONE ARE NOT NECESSARILY DANGEROUS BUT SOMETIMES WHEN SEARCHED IN PATTERNS THEY INDICATE EARLY CURIOSITY AND VIOLENT EXTREMISM. SO MOONSHOT STEPS IN, REDIRECTS USING GOOGLE’S AD TECHNOLOGY.>>WHILE NIKE MIGHT ADVERTISE SHOES AND BURGER KING MIGHT ADVERTISE CHEESEBURGERS, WE HAVE ADVERTISED ALTERNATIVE CONTENT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SEEKING EXTREMIST CONTENT.>>Adrienne: SOMEONE SEARCHING A WHITE NATIONALIST METAL BAND WOULD SEE THIS AD POPPING UP FIRST CALLED “TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR MUSIC.” IT’S A LINK TO A YouTube VIDEO OF CANADIAN METAL MUSIC. NONE OF IT IS WHITE NATIONALIST. DOES THIS ACTUALLY WORK? I MEAN, IT SOUNDS — IT SOUNDS TOO EASY THAT SOMEONE SEARCHES FOR SOMETHING AND THEN IN THE FIRST SEARCH TERM IT WILL REDIRECT THEM AND THAT ENDS THE RADICALIZATION PROCESS.>>SURE. SO THE NOTION THAT ANY ONE SEARCH THAT IS REDIRECTED IS GOING TO END IT FOR ONE PERSON IS PROBABLY VERY UNLIKELY, RIGHT? SO I DON’T THINK THAT IT’S PREMISED ON THE NOTION THAT WE WOULD SOMEHOW SAVE PEOPLE ON THE BASIS OF A SINGLE SEARCH. BUT IT DOES PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE. AND OFTEN BECAUSE OF THE SIZE OUR DATABASES, SEARCH AFTER SEARCH AFTER SEARCH, THEY’RE GOING TO BE CONFRONTED AND THEY’RE GOING TO BE PROVIDED WITH AN ALTERNATIVE.>>Adrienne: THERE ARE DOUBTERS AND IT’S NOT BEEN USED IN CANADA FOR LONG. IT’S HARD TO DETERMINE IF IT WILL WORK. THERE’S NO WAY TO TELL WHEN A DANGEROUS ROAD IS NOT TAKEN.>>>OVERSEAS NOW AND A DEVELOPMENT IN A STORY WATCHED AROUND THE WORLD. THAT THE U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS ACCUSATIONS OF MURDER FROM ONE SIDE AND LIES FROM THE OTHER. NINE MONTHS AFTER THE KILLING OF JAMAL KHASHOGGI, A JOURNALIST AND CRITIC OF SAUDI ARABIA’S CROWN PRINCE, A U.N. INVESTIGATOR LAID OUT HER FINDINGS. KHASHOGGI WALKED INTO THE SAUDI CONSULATE BUILDING IN ISTANBUL TO PICK UP A MARRIAGE DOCUMENT LAST OCTOBER AND HE NEVER EMERGED ALIVE. EXACTLY HOW HE WAS KILLED AND WHERE HIS REMAINS ARE NOW ARE STILL A MYSTERY. SAUDI PROSECUTORS SAY THAT HIS BODY WAS DISMEMBERED AND TAKEN AWAY, BUT THE U.N. SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON EXTRA JUDICIAL EXECUTIONS SAYS THAT THEIR INVESTIGATION DID NOT GO FAR ENOUGH. IN FACT, AS THOMAS DAIGLE EXPLAINS, SHE WANTS IT TO GO ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP, TO THE CROWN PRINCE HIMSELF.>>Reporter: FROM JAMAL KHASHOGGI’S FIANCÉE TODAY A DESPERATE PLEA TO DIPLOMATS FROM AROUND THE WORLD.>>I WANT TO KNOW WHO GIVE THE ORDER TO KILL JAMAL. AND WHO ELSE KNEW. AND I WANT TO KNOW WHERE IS HIS BODY.>>Reporter: THE U.N. INVESTIGATORS’ INDEPENDENT REPORT BLAMES SAUDI ARABIA FOR THE ATTACK. AND THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR CAN’T SAY FOR SURE WHO ORDERED THE KILLING, BUT SHE’S GOT A PRETTY GOOD IDEA.>>IT WAS OVERSEEN, PLANNED AND ENDORSED BY THE HIGH-LEVEL OFFICIALS AND IT WAS PREMEDITATED.>>Reporter: SHE’S DEMANDING AN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION TARGETING SAUDI CROWN PRINCE MOHAMMAD BIN SALMAN. HE’S DENIED INVOLVEMENT AND GONE ON WITH THE BUSINESS OF RULING HIS KINGDOM, SMILING FOR THE CAMERAS TODAY ON A TRADE MISSION TO SOUTH KOREA.>>THIS MURDER WAS AN ATTACK ON THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION OF ALL INDIVIDUALS, ALL OF US, AND ON THE FREEDOM OF PRESS. IT CANNOT GO UNANSWERED.>>Reporter: SAUDI ARABIA HAS PUT 11 MEN ON TRIAL IN PRIVATE FOR KHASHOGGI’S BRUTAL KILLING INSIDE OF THAT CONSULATE. BUT THE U.N. INVESTIGATOR SAYS THAT THE SAUDI TRIAL DOESN’T STAND UP TO INTERNATIONAL SCRUTINY. THE KINGDOM’S AMBASSADOR BLASTED THE REPORT AND ITS FINDINGS.>>[speaking foreign language].>>Reporter: IT’S BASED ON PREJUDICE AND PREFABRICATED IDEAS, HE SAID. WE REJECT ANY ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THIS FROM OUR NATIONAL JUSTICE SYSTEM. REITERATING THE SAUDI DEMAND FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO BUTT OUT. INSTEAD, SHE HOPES THAT MOMENTUM IS FINALLY BUILDING FOR JUSTICE.>>IT WAS NOT ONLY MY BELOVED JAMAL WHO WAS MURDERED THAT DAY, BUT ALSO DEMOCRACY, HUMAN RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS.>>Reporter: AN EMOTIONAL REMINDER OF JUST HOW MUCH IS AT STAKE. THOMAS DAIGLE, CBC NEWS, LONDON.>>Adrienne: SOME OF THE OTHER STORIES THAT WE’RE TELLING TONIGHT ON “THE NATIONAL”…>>>VICE-ADMIRAL MARK NORMAN IS RETIRING FROM THE MILITARY. HE WAS FORMERLY THE SECOND-IN-COMMAND IN THE CANADIAN FORCES BEFORE BEING CHARGED WITH LEAKING MILITARY SECRETS. PROSECUTORS DROPPED THAT CHARGE LAST MONTH. NORMAN INDICATED THAT HE WANTED TO RETURN TO HIS POST BUT HE’S NOW REACHED A SETTLEMENT WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND WILL NOT RETURN TO THE JOB.>>ANTI-EXTRADITION PROTESTERS IN HONG KONG ARE APPEALING FOR INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT AHEAD OF THIS WEEK’S G20 SUMMIT. WHILE THE EXTRADITION LAW WAS SUSPENDED, THEY WANT IT SCRAPPED ENTIRELY. THEY’RE ALSO CALLING FOR THE RELEASE OF THOSE ARRESTED IN EARLIER DEMONSTRATIONS.>>I CAN SENSE THAT THEY’RE ANGRY, BUT NOTHING HAS REALLY HAPPENED. THEY DIDN’T RESPOND TO THEM AT ALL.>>Adrienne: PROTESTERS PELTED EGGS AND SPRAYPAINTED THE BUILDING. POLICE WERE FINALLY ABLE TO CLEAR THE CROWD IN THE EARLY MORNING. CHINA HAS SAID THAT IT WILL NOT DISCUSS THE HONG KONG ISSUE AT THIS TIME.>>GASOL… GOT IT!>>Adrienne: OKAY, WELL, NO SURPRISE HERE BUT CONFIRMATION THAT MARC GASOL IS STAYING WITH THE RAPTORS, AT LEAST FOR ANOTHER SEASON. HE IS EXERCISING A ONE-YEAR PLAYER OPTION ON HIS CONTRACT, WORTH ABOUT $25.6 MILLION. IT’S HARD TO EVEN SAY THOSE WORDS. THE NEXT PLAYER THAT WE’RE WATCHING, OF COURSE, IS KAWHI LEONARD. HE IS SET TO BECOME A FREE AGENT ON SUNDAY BUT IS STILL IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH TORONTO.>>>IT IS STILL JUST AN IDEA, THE TAMPA BAY RAYS PLAYING SOME OF THEIR HOME GAMES IN MONTRÉAL. BUT TODAY BASEBALL FANS IN THE CITY HAD A REAL REASON TO HOPE. THAT’S BECAUSE THE SON OF THE MONTRÉAL’S EXPO’S FOUNDING OWNER, CHARLES BRONFMAN IS TRYING TO BRING BACK THE OLD BALLGAME, BUT AS ALISON NORTHCOTT REPORTS IT WILL TAKE MORE THAN JUST A GOOD PITCH.>>Reporter: FOR SOME YOUNG PLAYERS EVEN THE IDEA OF A PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL TEAM FOR MONTRÉAL TO CALL ITS OWN IS A MOTIVATOR.>>THESE TEAMS, LIKE, IN TORONTO, THEY’RE MUCH MORE INTO B>>THESE TEAMS, LIKE, IN TORONTO, THEY’RE MUCH MORE INTO BASEBALL BECAUSE OF THE BLUE JAYS AND ALL OF THAT. AND THEY’RE MUCH MORE PASSIONATE.>>MORE KIDS ARE GOING TO START PLAYING BASEBALL AND THEY’LL START GETTING INTO BASEBALL.>>Reporter: MONTRÉAL HASN’T HAD A MAJOR LEAGUE TEAM SINCE THE EXPOS LEFT IN 2004. AND SOME FANS HAVE EAGERLY BEEN WAITING FOR BASEBALL TO SOMEHOW RETURN.>>I’M ALL IN FOR TRYING SOMETHING GROUNDBREAKING AND I REALLY THINK THAT MONTRÉALERS WOULD JUMP ON THAT BANDWAGON.>>Reporter: STEPHEN BRONFMAN SAYS THAT PAIRING UP WITH THE TAMPA BAY RAYS COULD BE THE ANSWER, IN AN ARRANGEMENT THAT WOULD SEE THE TEAM SPLIT ITS TIME BETWEEN FLORIDA AND MONTRÉAL.>>I THINK THAT PEOPLE JUST WANT TO SEE BASEBALL. AND PEOPLE ARE ADAPTABLE. I THINK THAT IT’S A GREAT CHANCE TO HAVE SUMMER BASEBALL IN MONTRÉAL AND TO DO IT WITH GREAT PROFESSIONALS AND TRUE PARTNERS.>>Reporter: THE RAYS’ OWNER SAYS THAT TEAMING UP WITH MONTRÉAL COULD BE A LIFELINE.>>WE ARE AT OR NEAR THE BOTTOM IN EVERY ECONOMIC CATEGORY IN MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL. THIS IS A REALITY AND WE CAN ALL CONFRONT IT TOGETHER.>>Reporter: BUT THE RAYS ARE LOCKED IN A LEASE TO PLAY IN FLORIDA TO THE END OF THE 2027 SEASON.>>GET ALL OF YOUR STUFF OUT –>>Reporter: IN MONTRÉAL THERE’S SOME SKEPTICISM ABOUT SHARING A TEAM.>>OUR ASPIRATIONS ARE REALLY FOR SOMETHING A LOT MORE THAN JUST A PART-TIME CITY TEAM.>>Reporter: THERE ARE QUESTIONS TOO ABOUT THE ECONOMIC VIABILITY OF THE IDEA, SINCE THE RAYS’ OWNER SAYS THAT HE ENVISIONED NEW STADIUMS IN BOTH CITIES.>>I JUST DON’T SEE A SCENARIO IN WHICH THIS WILL WORK. TOO MANY LOGISTICAL HURDLES AND THE STADIUM THING IS A KILLER. YOU CANNOT BUILD TWO STADIUMS FOR $2 MILLION IN TWO CITIES THAT DON’T WANT TO GIVE PUBLIC MONEY.>>Reporter: STILL, HE SAYS THAT THE DISCUSSIONS COULD BE A STEPPING STONE TO BRING MONTRÉAL A LITTLE CLOSER TO ONCE AGAIN HAVING A FULL-TIME TEAM. ALISON NORTHCOTT, CBC NEWS, MONTRÉAL.>>Adrienne: STILL AHEAD ON “THE NATIONAL”…>>>WHY MORE AND MORE TEENAGERS ARE TURNING TO THE E.R. FOR THEIR MENTAL HEALTH.>>>AND MONTHS AFTER THE ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES CRASH WE HEAR FROM SOME OF THE FAMILIES OF CANADIAN VICTIMS ABOUT THE HEAVY BURDEN THEY CARRY.>>I WOULD WISH THAT I WAS THERE WITH THEM. TODAY I DO LIVE TO KEEP THEIR MEMORIES ALIVE. AND I’M THEIR VOICE. (*)>>Adrienne: WELL, THE NUMBER OF YOUNG PEOPLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS HASN’T CHANGED. A NEW ONTARIO STUDY SHOWS THAT MORE ARE SEEKING HELP AT EMERGENCY ROOMS. VISITS SPIKED 78% BETWEEN 2003 AND 2017 AND DOCTORS ARE SEEING MORE SEVERE CASES. HEALTH REPORTER CHRISTINE BIRAK HAS MORE ON WHY AND WHAT MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE.>>Reporter: EMERGENCY ROOMS HAVE SEEN A SURGE OVER THE LAST DECADE IN YOUNG PATIENTS SUFFERING FROM MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS, RANGING FROM ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION TO SELF-HARM.>>OUR EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT PHYSICIANS AND OUR CRISIS INTERVENTION WORKERS AND OUR PSYCHIATRY STAFF ARE ALL OBSERVING AN INCREASE.>>Reporter: A RECENT ONTARIO STUDY FOUND THAT THE NUMBER OF YOUNG PEOPLE VISITING EMERGENCY FOR SELF-HARM HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED. FROM NEARLY TWO KIDS IN EVERY THOUSAND A DECADE AGO TO MORE THAN FOUR PER THOUSAND IN 2017.>>I’M HEARING A LOT ABOUT ACADEMIC STRESS AND PRESSURE. THAT’S ONE BIG THING. AND THE OTHER BIG THING IS UNDER THE GENERAL CATEGORY OF RELATIONSHIPS.>>I CAME OUT OF A MENTAL HOSPITAL FOR DEPRESSION AND THEY’RE LIKE, NO, YOU’RE JUST LAZY.>>Reporter: EVERY ONE IN THIS GROUP HAS LIVED WITH MENTAL ILLNESS, INCLUDING PSYCHOSIS THAT NEARLY COST SOME OF THEM THEIR LIVES.>>I DON’T THINK THAT THERE’S MORE MENTAL ILLNESS THAN THERE’S BEEN IN THE PAST.>>Reporter: HE’S RIGHT. THE OVERALL PREVALENCE OF MENTAL DISORDERS IN KIDS REMAINS BETWEEN 10% AND 20%. SO WHAT’S CHANGED? THEY ALL AGREE THAT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THERE’S LESS STIGMA AND MORE KIDS ARE SEEKING HELP, BUT THE BAD NEWS IS THAT THEY’RE NOW STARING AT A LOT OF SCREENS WHICH CAN BE ISOLATING.>>YOU SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST ON THEIR CELLPHONES AND ALMOST LIKE A LACK OF COMMUNICATION THAT I HAVE NOTICED.>>Reporter: DESPITE INVESTMENT IN MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES THEY ALSO FEEL THAT THE SYSTEM ISN’T WELL COORDINATED.>>I FEEL THAT WE NEED MORE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES. WE SHOULDN’T BE HAVING TO GO TO THE E.R. WE SHOULD BE ADDRESSING THIS EARLY ON.>>ONE OF THE CHALLENGES FOR MENTAL HEALTH NATIONALLY IS WHAT WE CALL ACCESS AND EQUITY. SO ACCESSING MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES IN A TIMELY WAY.>>Reporter: THIS PSYCHIATRIST AGREES. THE MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM STILL HAS HUGE GAPS AND TOO MUCH SCREENTIME IS PUSHING KIDS TOWARDS UNHEALTHY HABITS.>>IF THEY’RE SPENDING A LOT OF TIME ON PHONES, THEY’RE SPENDING LESS TIME IN DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH THEIR FRIENDS AND LESS TIME AS THEY SAY EXERCISING OR SLEEPING WHICH IS WHAT THEY SHOULD BE DOING.>>* CRIMES COMMITTED BY THE MIND THAT IS DISEASED * * GOT TO BREAK THE STIGMA * * AND THE FALLACIES >>Reporter: A SUPPORT PROGRAMME BROUGHT THIS GROUP TOGETHER.>>* MENTALLY HEALTHY GOTTA BE * GOTTA BE MENTALLY HEALTHY * IT’S ABOUT RECOVERY >>Reporter: MUSIC OFFERED THEM A SENSE OF BELONGING.>>YOU READY TO HUG?>>Reporter: GIVING THEM A CHANCE TO BRING THEIR DARKEST DAYS INTO THE LIGHT. CHRISTINE BIRAK, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Adrienne: STILL AHEAD ON “THE NATIONAL” –>>>SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS AFTER THE ETHIOPIAN AIRLINE CRASH. WHO THE FAMILIES WANT ACCOUNTABILITY FROM.>>WHEN DANIELLE TRAVELLED I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE THE PLANE — NEVER. AND IT WAS THE PLANE. IT WAS THE BOEING. THE PEOPLE WHO WORKS AROUND THAT, T (*)>>Reporter: THIS CRASH SITE IS FULLY CHANGING FROM AN ACTIVE INVESTIGATION INTO MORE OF A MEMORIAL.>>Adrienne: 18 CANADIAN CITIZENS WERE KILLED LAST MARCH, ALONG WITH OTHER PERMANENT RESIDENTS OF CANADA, WHEN ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 302 CRASHED. IT WAS THE SECOND FATAL CRASH BY A BOEING 737 MAX 8 WITH A COMBINED DEATH TOLL OF 346. SOON ALL 371 PLANES OF THAT MODEL WERE GROUNDED AS SUSPICION FELL ON ITS FLIGHT CONTROL SOFTWARE. AS WE SHOWED YOU LAST NIGHT, BOEING IS SHORT ON SPACE AS IT WORKS TO MAKE A SAFETY FEATURE STANDARD IN ALL MAX 8s INSTEAD OF OPTIONAL. THE CRASH IN ETHIOPIA SPAWNED DOZENS OF LAWSUITS. TOMORROW THE LAWYERS FOR SOME OF THE VICTIMS’ FAMILIES WILL APPEAR IN FEDERAL COURT IN CHICAGO SEEKING ACCOUNTABILITY AND COMPENSATION. TONIGHT SUSAN ORMISTON SPEAKS WITH THREE CANADIANS STILL SHATTERED BY THE SUDDEN LOSS OF LOVED ONES. (*)>>Reporter: ON A SUNDAY MORNING LAST MARCH, PAUL NJOROGE’S LIFE WENT SILENT. HE LOST EVERYTHING MOST PRECIOUS. HIS WIFE… HIS THREE KIDS… HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW. WHEN ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 302 DOVE INTO THE GROUND.>>THERE HASN’T BEEN A DAY WHERE I DON’T THINK ABOUT ME BEING IN THE SAME PLANE WITH MY FAMILY. AND RIGHT FROM THE START I WOULD WISH THAT I WAS THERE WITH THEM. TODAY I DO LIVE TO KEEP THEIR MEMORIES ALIVE. AND I’M THEIR VOICE. (*)>>Reporter: WE FIRST MET PAUL A FEW DAYS AFTER THE TRAGEDY IN ETHIOPIA. HE WAS IN SHOCK. BARELY ABLE TO WALK TO THE VERY PLACE THAT HIS FAMILY HAD DIED. HE’D BOOKED THEIR FLIGHTS FROM TORONTO TO ADDIS ABABA AND THEN ON TO NAIROBI WHILE HE STAYED BACK A WEEK TO WORK. DOES IT GIVE YOU ANY PEACE COMING HERE?>>I DON’T HAVE ANY. I DO NOT HAVE PEACE.>>Reporter: MONTHS LATER PAUL IS STILL STRUGGLING TO CARRY ON.>>I THINK ABOUT MY WIFE A LOT. I WISH I WAS THERE WITH THE CHILDREN. AND MY MOM-IN-LAW. SHE KNEW THAT THEY WERE GOING TO DIE. IT DOESN’T LEAVE ME THAT MY CHILDREN AND MY WIFE AND MY CHILDREN’S FLESH IS THERE IN ETHIOPIA. AND THE FEAR AND THE PIECES OF THE AIRCRAFT NEVER GOES AWAY. NEVER GOES AWAY. (*)>>Reporter: ONE CRASH WAS TRAGIC ENOUGH BUT TWO? THE MAX 8 WAS SUSPECT. AROUND THE WORLD AIRLINES GROUNDED THEIR MAX 8 FLEETS BECAUSE OF STRIKING SIMILARITIES WITH A LION AIR JETLINER WHICH PLUNGED INTO THE SEA LAST OCTOBER.>>WHAT HAS BROUGHT US HERE TODAY IS THIS TRAGEDY FROM MARCH 10th.>>Reporter: U.S. LAWYERS ARE SUING BOEING ON BEHALF OF 14 VICTIMS FROM CANADA. THEY ALLEGE THAT IT WAS NEGLIGENT, PUTTING PROFITS AHEAD OF SAFETY AND THAT IT CONCEALED THE TRUE NATURE OF AN AUTOMATED FLIGHT SYSTEM CALLED M-CAS, WHICH THE PILOTS COULD NOT OVERRIDE. THEY KNEW OR OUGHT TO HAVE KNOWN THAT THE PLANE DESIGN WAS FLAWED AND BOEING IS A COMPANY THAT FORECAST ON PROFITS INSTEAD OF THE SAFETY OF HUMAN LIFE.>>Reporter: MORE PASSENGERS FROM CANADA DIED IN THAT ETHIOPIAN FIELD THAN FROM ANY OTHER COUNTRY, SAVE FROM KENYA. IT WAS SPRING BREAK. FAMILIES WERE TRAVELLING, AND SO WERE YOUNG DELEGATES TO A U.N. CONFERENCE IN NAIROBI. DANIELLE MOORE WAS ONE OF A GROUP OF FOUR CANADIANS HEADING TO KENYA TO MAKE THEIR MARK AS FUTURE ENVIRONMENTALISTS. SHE WAS 24, AND POISED TO TAKE ON THE WORLD.>>I THINK THAT DANIELLE WOULD WANT US TO BE STRONG TOGETHER, TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER AND TO ALSO TAKE CARE OF THE PASSIONS THAT SHE’S HAD AS WELL.>>Adrienne: DANIELLE AND HER BROTHER DAVID WERE CLOSE.>>YEAH, SHE’S ALWAYS BEEN MY BIGGEST INSPIRATION.>>Reporter: DANIELLE’S PARENTS, CHRIS AND CLARISS AND HER TWO BROTHERS, A BROTHER AND A PARTNER, ARE NOW ONLY PLANNING A CELEBRATION OF DANIELLE’S LIFE. LIKE ALL FAMILIES THEY’RE STILL WAITING FOR POSITIVE D.N.A. IDENTIFICATION AND THE RETURN OF ANY REMAINS. TRAPPING THEM IN EMOTIONAL LIMBO.>>STRUGGLE, YEAH.>>IT’S OKAY.>>SOMETIMES YOU FEEL BAD, YOU FEEL GUILTY. I FEEL GUILTY GRIEVING BECAUSE IT’S NOT GRIEVING. AND YOU JUST WONDER WHAT DOES THAT SIX MINUTES LOOK LIKE? HOW DARK IT WAS. WAS SHE WITH SOMEONE? WAS SHE CALLING ME? WAS SHE THINKING OF ME? LIKE, WAS SHE SUFFERING? I DON’T KNOW. SO EVERY MORNING, EVERY NIGHT, IS ALWAYS A STRUGGLE. AND IT’S WHAT CHRIS SAID, IT’S THE NEW NORM BUT I DON’T LIKE THE NEW NORM. I WANT MY OLD NORM.>>Reporter: CLARISS AND CHRIS WANT SOMEONE TO BE HELD PERSONALLY ACCOUNTABLE. THEY WON’T ACCEPT A CONCLUSION THAT DANIELLE’S DEATH WAS PILOT ERROR OR EVEN AN ACCIDENT.>>WHEN DANIELLE TRAVELLED I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE THE PLANE, NEVER. AND IT WAS THE PLANE. IT WAS THE BOEING. THE PEOPLE WHO WORKS AROUND THAT, WHO FAILED US, WHO FAILED EVERY 157 PEOPLE ON THAT PLANE.>>I’D LIKE TO HAVE MORE RESPONSIBILITY, PEOPLE TO TAKE OWNERSHIP. AND TO BE ACCOUNTABLE, YOU NEED TO HAVE A PERSON’S NAME, PEOPLE WHO MAKE DECISIONS. RIGHT NOW THEY’RE HIDING BEHIND THE CORPORATE VEIL.>>Reporter: BOEING IS NOW CAUGHT UP IN TWO ONGOING ACCIDENT INVESTIGATIONS AND MORE INQUIRIES FROM U.S. FEDERAL AGENCIES EXAMINING THE F.A.A.’S ROLE. LAWSUITS ARE PILING UP AND THE CANADIAN FAMILY IS SUING FOR WRONGFUL DEATH AND MILLIONS IN DAMAGES. BOEING HAS OFFERED TO GO TO MEDIATION IN THE CASES RATHER THAN TO FACE A TRIAL. AT THE RECENT PARIS AIR SHOW BOEING SECURED A FIRST TENTATIVE NEW ORDER FOR 200 MAX AIRCRAFT. AND ITS C.E.O. SPOKE TO THE TRAGEDY.>>WE ARE VERY SORRY. THE LOSS OF LIVES AS A RESULT OF THE TRAGIC ACCIDENTS FOR BOTH ETHIOPIAN 302 AND LION AIR 610. SAFETY IS SACRED IN THIS COMPANY.>>Reporter: DOES THAT GIVE YOU ANY COMFORT?>>NO, BECAUSE IT’S — THEY’RE JUST WORDS, RIGHT? YOU KNOW, WHAT IS THEIR SAFETY POLICY? I’D LIKE TO KNOW BECAUSE IF THEY DO PUT SAFETY FIRST, THEN THE SECOND CRASH WOULD HAVE NEVER HAVE HAPPENED.>>THIS IS THE PICTURE OF THE MORNING SHE LEFT.>>Reporter: THE MORNING SHE LEFT FOR?>>FOR THE FLIGHTS, YES.>>Reporter: MOHAMMED ALI LOST HIS 5-YEAR-OLD NIECE SOPHIA.>>THIS IS MY SON WITH MY SISTER.>>Reporter: AND HIS SISTER AMINA FROM EDMONTON.>>YEAH, I INITIALLY THOUGHT THAT SHE WAS GOING TO MISS THAT FLIGHT.>>Reporter: HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THAT FLIGHT WITH HIM BUT IN THE LAST WEEK CHANGED HIS PLANS.>>IT WAS SUCH A PAINFUL DEATH BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE ANY PROOF. TO BE HONEST, SHE’S STILL ON THE PLANE AT THIS POINT. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HER. LIKE, WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, BUT WE DON’T FEEL THAT SHE IS GONE UNTIL WE FOR SURE SEE OR THAT HAND BAG OR THAT SOMETHING TO TELL, WHATEVER IS LEFT, YOU KNOW. THAT’S HOW I KNOW AND WE HAVEN’T HAD THAT.>>Reporter: ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES HAS OUTSOURCED IDENTIFYING REMAINS TO A BRITISH COMPANY. IT COULD BE SEPTEMBER BEFORE FAMILIES GET CONFIRMATION. BUT BY MID-JULY THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEARCH A DATABASE OF PERSONAL BELONGINGS. AT THE SAME TIME BOEING IS TRYING TO PERSUADE NATIONAL REGULATORS AND AIRLINES, INCLUDING IN CANADA, TO LIFT THE BAN ON THE MAX 8.>>LIKE, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO FIX THIS? AND JUST SAYING EVERYTHING IS FIXED NOW. HOW DO WE KNOW? LIKE, WE NEED SOME TRANSPARENCY. I DON’T TRUST THEM ANYMORE, HONESTLY.>>I NEVER — AT ANY POINT IN MY LIFE, ENVISIONED LIFE WITHOUT MY WIFE AND MY CHILDREN. I NEVER DID THAT.>>Reporter: PAUL NJOROGE HAS FOUND SOME COMFORT WITH OTHER BEREAVED PARENTS AND HE’S HELPED WITH MEMORIALS LIKE A TREE PLANTED AT HIS KIDS’ SCHOOL. BUT HIS GRIEF IS OFTEN LACED WITH ANGER.>>IT DOESN’T CONCERN ME ABOUT WHAT BOEING CAN PAY TO THE FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS — IT DOESN’T CONCERN ME. IF BOEING CAN BE ALLOWED TO MANUFACTURE PLANES THAT CAN FALL FROM THE SKY AT ANY TIME, IF THEIR MANAGEMENT DYSFUNCTION CONTINUES AND THE LACK OF INTERNAL OVERSIGHT CONTINUES, TO WHOM IS IT WELL? WE ALL FLY ON THESE PLANES. IT’S NOT WELL WITH ME.>>Reporter: TO SMOTHER THE LONELINESS THAT ALL OF THESE FAMILIES FEEL, PAUL RUNS, DAY AFTER DAY, TO EXHAUST HIS BODY SO THAT HIS MIND WILL SLEEP. TO CHASE AWAY THE LONGING FOR A LITTLE WHILE.>>I DO HAVE NIGHTMARES A LOT. NIGHTMARES ABOUT PLANES FALLING FROM THE SKY. YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES I HAVE NIGHTMARES THAT I’M TALKING WITH THEM, I’M PLAYING WITH THEM. ONLY TO WAKE UP AND TO REALIZE THAT I’M STILL ALONE. AND I’LL BE ALONE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.>>Reporter: HONOURING THEIR PASSING IS WHAT KEEPS PAUL GOING.>>Adrienne: SO, SUSAN, THESE FAMILIES REMAIN IN SUCH GRIEF. WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG FOR THE RETURN OF THEIR LOVED ONES’ REMAINS?>>Reporter: YOU KNOW, THAT PLANE DOVE INTO THE GROUND WITH SUCH A FORCE, ADRIENNE, THAT MUCH OF THE PLANE’S STRUCTURE WAS OBLIBERATED. SO ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES HAVE ALREADY WARNED FAMILIES THAT THERE MAY BE NO D.N.A. MATCH AT ALL FOR SOME OF THEM. WHERE THERE WERE REMAINS THE D.N.A. HAS NOW BEEN EXTRACTED AND IT’S BEING MATCHED WITH SAMPLES GIVEN BY THE FAMILIES. IT’S JUST A LONG PROCESS.>>Adrienne: SURE IS. WHAT ABOUT THE 737 MAX 8s? WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO GET THOSE FINALLY BACK IN THE AIR?>>Reporter: YOU KNOW, AIRLINE HIS CANCELLED THEIR MAX 8 FLIGHTS ONLY TO AUGUST AND NOW IT’S PUSHED BACK TO SEPTEMBER EARLIEST. THERE’S TWO LINGERING QUESTIONS — SAFETY AND CONFIDENCE. ON THE SAFETY ISSUE, BOEING SAYS THAT IT’S COMPLETED A SOFTWARE UPDATE AND HAS NEW TRAINING RULES FOR THAT AIRCRAFT. BUT JUST TODAY THE F.A.A. SAID THAT A NEW POTENTIAL RISK WAS DISCOVERED IN A SIMULATOR TEST SO BOEING HAS TO ADDRESS THAT. AND ON THE CONFIDENCE, WELL, THEY’VE BEEN GOING ON A BIT OF A CHARM OFFENSIVE TO PERSUADE AIRLINES AND CREWS THAT THE PLANE IS SAFE. BUT JUST LAST WEEK YOU WILL REMEMBER THAT SULLY SULLENBERGER, THE PILOT WHO LANDED ON THE HUDSON AND HE TESTIFIED THAT THE SYSTEM WAS FATALLY FLAWED AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN APPROVED. WE TALKED TO WESTJET AND AIR CANADA AND THEY BOTH TELL US THAT THEY’RE WAITING FOR THE REGULATORS TO LIFT THE BAN ON THE PLANES AND AIR CANADA SAYS THAT THEY’LL DO ADDITIONAL SAFETY EVALUATIONS AT THAT POINT.>>Adrienne: ALL RIGHT, SUSAN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>Reporter: OKAY.>>Adrienne: STILL AHEAD ON “THE NATIONAL”…>>>UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACT OF MELTING ICEBERGS, WHAT THE FUTURE LOOKS LIKE FOR OUR COASTAL COMMUNITIES.>>WELL, WE KEEP SEEING THEM BUT THERE WILL BE LESS OF THEM. BY THE END OF THE CENTURY WE’LL HAVE LESS ICEBERGS COMING FROM GREENLAND. ALL THEY CAN DO IS MELT, THEY CAN’T FORM ICEBERGS ANYMORE, BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT IN THE WATER WATER.>>Adrienne: FIRST A STORY THAT WE’LL HAVE LATER THIS WEEK ON “THE NATIONAL.” ROSIE SAT DOWN WITH THREE RETIRING M.P.s TO ASK THEM WHY THEY DECIDED TO LEAVE POLITICS. HERE’S A PREVIEW –>>SOME PEOPLE ENJOY ELECTIONS AND I HAVE BEEN THROUGH SIX AND I HAVE A KNOT IN MY STOMACH FOR THREE MONTHS. [laughter] YOU KNOW, I DRIVE AND I GOT A TIME WITH I’M COUNTING SIGNS. YOUR PHONE IS IN YOUR EAR ALL THE TIME.>>Rosemary: YOU HAVE RAN SIX TIMES, YOU’RE STILL STRESSED OUT OUT?>>IT’S TOUGH, YOU KNOW, YOU GO LIKE YOU’RE A FEW VOTES BEHIND. AND I ALWAYS TRIED TO DO THAT. BUT, NO, IT’S TIME FOR SOMEBODY ELSE TO TAKE IT ON.>>Rosemary: YOU’LL MISS IT THOUGH?3 OUT?>>IT’S TOUGH, YOU KNOW, YOU GO LIKE YOU’RE A FEW VOTES BEHIND. AND I ALWAYS TRIED TO DO THAT. BUT, NO, IT’S TIME FOR SOMEBODY ELSE TO TAKE IT ON.>>Rosemary: YOU’LL MISS IT THOUGH?>>I’LL MISS THE PEOPLE BUT I’M READY — I DON’T KNOW, I THINK THAT I MAY HAVE ANOTHER CAREER LEFT IN SOMETHING TO CONTRIBUTE IN SOME WAY. I WANT TO DO SOME VOLUNTEERING (*)>>GUN VIOLENCE IS A NATIONAL HEALTH EMERGENCY IN THIS COUNTRY.>>I’M TIRED OF HEARING PEOPLE, ALL THEY HAVE TO OFFER ARE THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.>>Adrienne: WELL, THE 2020 U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN IS KICKING UP A NOTCH TONIGHT WITH THE FIRST CANDIDATES’ DEBATE. 10 DEMOCRATIC HOPEFULS ARE TAKING TO THE STAGE IN MIAMI AND THEY INCLUDE CORY BOOKER AND ELIZABETH WARREN AND BETO O’ROURKE. THE TOPICS COVERED SO FAR, HEALTH CARE, THE ECONOMY, ABORTION, GUN CONTROL. ANOTHER 10 CANDIDATES WILL BE UP TOMORROW NIGHT, AMONG THEM JOE BIDEN AND BERNIE SANDERS.>>YOU ALONE CANNOT, SHALL NOT, AND WILL NOT TAKE ALL OF THE BURDEN ANYMORE.>>Adrienne: THAT IS IRAN SENDING A WARNING TO THE U.S. SECURITY COUNCIL TODAY AND SAYING IT CANNOT UPHOLD THE NUCLEAR DEAL ALONE. WHEN THE COUNTRY SIGNED THE AGREEMENT BACK IN 2015, MOST SANCTIONS FROM WORLD POWERS WERE LIFTED BUT THE U.S. IMPOSED NEW SANCTIONS WHEN IT WITHDREW LAST YEAR. IRAN IS WARNING THAT IT WILL SOON EXCEED ITS ALLOWED SUPPLY OF URANIUM AND SAY THAT EUROPEAN NATIONS HAVE TO JULY 8TH TO SALVAGE THE DEAL.>>WE HAVE A NEW ENTRY IN OUR ONGOING CLIMATE CHANGE SERIES TO SHARE WITH YOU, THIS ONE IS FOCUSING ON THE IMPACT OF CANADA’S MELTING ICEBERGS. SCIENTISTS ARE TRYING TO PUT A TIMEFRAME ON HOW QUICKLY THESE ICEBERGS WILL MELT AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE WATER LEFT BEHIND. AS CHRIS O’NEILL-YATES EXPLAINS, THEIR FINDINGS COULD HAVE GLOBAL RAMIFICATIONS FOR COASTAL COMMUNITIES.>>Reporter: THE ARRIVAL OF ICEBERGS USHERS IN SPRING AND TOURISTS.>>SO LIKE THE TOURISM IS A GREAT BOOST TO NEWFOUNDLAND. TO ALLOW THE LITTLE OUTPORTS AND THE CITIES TOO.>>Reporter: WHEN THIS UNUSUAL CHUNK OF ICE BROKE OFF IT RUBBED AGAINST A VALLEY AND TOOK PART OF GREENLAND WITH IT.>>ICEBERGS ALWAYS CAME OVER THE YEARS. SO, LIKE, YOU KNOW, IT MAKES YOU WONDER, YOU KNOW, LIKE WILL THEY EVER STOP?>>Reporter: THAT’S WHAT MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY GLACIOLOGIST LEV TAROSOV IS IS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT.>>WE’LL SEE THEM AND BY THE END OF THE CENTURY WE’LL HAVE LESS ICEBERGS FROM GREEN LOG.>>Reporter: HE’S THE SOLE
OV IS IS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT.>>WE’LL SEE THEM AND BY THE END OF THE CENTURY WE’LL HAVE LESS ICEBERGS FROM GREEN LOG.>>Reporter: HE’S THE SOLE CANADIAN ON AN INTERNATIONAL TEAM OF SCIENTISTS. ESTIMATING A TIMEFRAME IN WHICH THESE CHANGES COULD HAPPEN. FROM BOARING DOWN INTO THE LAYERS OF ICEBERGS, IT’S CLEAR THAT FROM THE MID 1900s TO THE CHANGE OF THE CENTURY THERE WAS NO CHANGE IN MELT PATTERNS AND THEN –>>AROUND THE TURN OF THE CENTURY WE SAW CLEAR CHANGES.>>Reporter: LIKE NOW WHEN CHUNKS CALVE OFF THE GREENLAND GLACIER THEY FALL INTO THE OCEAN AND BECOME ICEBERG. BUT WHEN IT RETREATS ON TO LAND THOSE ICE CHUNKS WILL MELT ON LAND.>>ALL THEY CAN DO IS MELT, THEY CAN’T FORM ICEBERGS ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT IN THE WATER.>>Reporter: ALL OF THIS MELT IS DIRECTLY TIED TO RISING SEA LEVELS GLOBALLY. AND THAT’S SOMETHING ELSE THAT HIS RESEARCH IS HOPING TO PREDICT, A TIMEFRAME FOR HOW MUCH THE SEA LEVELS WILL RISE AND BY WHEN.>>THE FLOOD LEVELS HAVE BEEN RISING –>>Reporter: THAT’S OF CRUCIAL INTEREST FOR JOE DORIO.>>WE HAVE A LOT OF COASTAL TOWNS IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR.>>Reporter: HE WAS TRAINING ENGINEERS TO INCORPORATE CLIMATE CHANGE INTO HOW THEY DESIGN PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE. SO KNOWING WHEN SOMETHING MIGHT HAPPEN IS A BONUS FOR PLANNING PURPOSES.>>HOW DO WE DESIGN A CULVERT TO CARRY THE LARGEST POSSIBLE FLOW? IF WE HAVE A DESIGN LIFE OF 50 YEARS, 50 YEARS IS GOING TO BE VERY, VERY DIFFERENT AND THE LIKELIHOOD OF THE HIGH FLOOD CAN BE VERY DIFFERENT.>>Reporter: SOME OF THIS ICE TOOK 100,000 YEARS TO FORM. BECAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE EXPERTS SAY THAT WITHIN OUR CHILDREN’S LIFETIMES IT COULD DISAPPEAR ENTIRELY. CHRIS O’NEILL-YATES, CBC NEWS, BONAVISTA, NEWFOUNDLAND.>>Adrienne: UP NEXT ON “THE NATIONAL”… AFTER 19 SEASONS, ROBERTO LUONGO IS SAYING GOODBYE TO HIS FANS AND THEY HAVE A MESSAGE FOR HIM IN OUR “MOMENT.”>>>BUT FIRST… (*)>>>”IN CASE YOU MISSED IT”…>>SOAKER TUB AND REGULAR HOUSE STUFF.>>Adrienne: YOU CAN’T TELL FROM THE INSIDE BUT THIS IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND HOME AND THESE BUILDERS WANT IT TO BE THE FUTURE.>>SO THIS IS A SHREDDED PLASTIC. AND THE FIRST STEP IN THE RECYCLING PROCESS.>>Adrienne: IT’S NOT MADE WITH BRICKS OR STEEL OR WOOD BUT PLASTIC BOTTLES, 600,000 OF THEM SHREDDED, MELTED AND THEN TURNED INTO WALLS.>>YOU KNOW, YOU’RE SAVING THE PLANET AND YOU’RE SAVING THE OCEANS. AND YOU’RE TAKING ALL OF THIS OUT OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND MAKING STUFF WITH IT.>>Adrienne: HERE’S ANOTHER PERK. APPARENTLY IT CAN BE BUILT FAST.>>WE PUT UP ALL OF THE WALLS IN ABOUT SEVEN HOURS AND THEN WE PUT THE ROOF IN ANOTHER SEVEN HOURS. SO IT TOOK US 14 HOURS TO PUT THE HOUSE UP.>>Adrienne: DURABILITY? THEY SAY THAT THE WALLS WITHSTOOD TESTING IN CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE STRENGTH WINDS AND HURRICANE STRENGTH WINDS AND THEY SAY THAT IT’S EASY TO CARE FOR.>>YOU DON’T NEED ANY SIDING AND YOU DON’T NEED ANY ROOFING, YOU CAN JUST PAINT IT. IT’S READY TO ROCK.>>Adrienne: THE FINAL COST? LESS THAN $400,000, INCLUDING ALL OF THE FURNISHINGS, ABOUT THE SAME AS A REGULAR CONSTRUCTION. THIS PARTICULAR HOME WILL BE PUT UP FOR SALE BUT THE BUILDERS HOPE THEIR IDEA SPARKS A MOVEMENT.>>I HAVE A 9-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER AND I’M THINKING ABOUT HOW IT’S GOING TO BE FOR HER WHEN SHE’S 25. AND SO LET’S TRY TO TURN THINGS AROUND. (*) (*)>>Adrienne: ROBERTO LUONGO, KNOWN TO FANS AS BOBBY LU IS ANNOUNCING THAT HE’S RETIRING. HE ANNOUNCED HIS RETIREMENT IN A SELF-DEPRECATING TWEET AND A HEARTFELT OPEN LETTER THANKING FANS. SO HE’S RETIRING IN PARKLAND, FLORIDA, AND IN THAT LETTER HE SAID THAT HE IS PROUD TO BE A PARKLAND RESIDENT, THAT THE COMMUNITY IS TRYING TO HEAL TOGETHER AFTER THAT HORRIFYING SCHOOL SHOOTING. HIS FANS RESPONDED TO HIS ANNOUNCEMENT AND THEIR REACTION IS OUR “MOMENT.” (*)>>BOBBY LU, HAPPY RETIREMENT FROM FELLOW MONTRÉALER. WE’RE SO PROUD OF YOU AND WE HAVE ALWAYS ROOTED FOR YOUR SUCCESS, EVEN IF IT CAME AT THE EXPENSE OF THE HABS.>>AND HE’S HAD HIS BEST PLAYING YEARS IN VANCOUVER WEARING A CANUCK JERSEY, BUT EVERYONE KNEW THAT HIS HEART WAS ALWAYS IN FLORIDA.>>HE’S HAD THIS AMAZING ABILITY TO BE AN ELITE SUPERSTAR AND TO BE SOMEBODY WHO SEEMED LIKE AN UNDERDOG WHO YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO ROOT FOR.>>BECAUSE YOU’RE HUMBLE, GENEROUS AND KIND AND HARD WORKING NO MATTER WHAT THE STANDINGS SAID.>>I THINK THAT IT WAS JUST AN HONOUR TO BE ABLE TO CHEER FOR HIM AS LONG AS WE DID, TO HAVE HIM ON OUR TEAM, TO HAVE HIM IN OUR CITY. I WISH HIM WELL WITH WHATEVER COMES NEXT AND THANK YOU FOR ALL COMES NEXT AND THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE MEMORIES AND FOR EVERYTHING.>>Adrienne: WELL, THAT’S NICE. ON THAT SCHOOL SHOOTING, BY THE WAY, LUONGO’S SON’S SCHOOL WAS IN LOCKDOWN AND HE PRAISED THE COURAGE OF THE TEACHERS. AS FOR THAT SELF-DEPRECATING TWEET THAT WE REFERRED TO, HE SAID THAT HE’S RETIRING BECAUSE HE’S LISTENING TO HIS BODY AND THAT HE’S TAKING HIS TALENTS TO A SOUTH BEACH RETIREMENT HOME.>>>THAT IS “THE NATIONAL” FOR JUNE 26th. GOODNIGHT. (*)
