power all the way back to the angry roots of a monster rock and roll band my mother's name is Iris screwed up this is the national with Chief correspondent Adrian Arsenault thank you for being with us tonight it's official flu season is underway in Canada with cases surging across the country the federal public health agency declared an epidemic today so we will pick that up in a moment but first with kids hospitals already under strain tonight some new advice from Ontario's top doctor aimed at slowing a triple threat of respiratory illnesses wear masks in all indoor public settings not a mandate but a strong recommendation urgently delivered Lisa Shang has the Ontario details and a look at how Alberta's Premier addressed some of the same concerns dance class a massive fadaye's daughter is the only student masking up I'm definitely more worried right now lyanna is immunocompromised and Mom wants the province to do more to protect her seven-year-old it's good if they mandate The Mask even for a short period of time that this season of all viruses pass but Ontario's top doctor didn't go that far I'm strongly recommending that all ontarians not just those at high risk wear a mask in indoor public settings that means on Transit at work in schools and daycares even at home if someone is sick please parents grandparents siblings if you have any respiratory symptoms you must mask around those that are vulnerable the Call Comes amidst a growing triple threat of covid influenza and RSV and as pediatric hospitals are operating at over capacity the Children's Hospital of eastern Ontario has opened a second ICU sick kids in Toronto is canceling non-urgent surgeries and those 14 and older are being sent to adult icus this Hospital in Hamilton Ontario is diverting some patients too we've got levels of demand that we've never experienced before several provinces are seeing a similar search in Alberta about 15 000 School kits were homesick last week the premier questioned about it Monday I'm telling anyone who wishes to wear a mask to wear one but we will not be mandating them no while some doctors say a mandate would be more effective many hope people will mask anyway it's like a really cheap and relatively inoffensive thing that you can do to save lives Ontario's top doctor says he didn't recommend a mandate because the viruses are spreading within families and social situations where enforcement is tough but he didn't rule it out completely especially if things get worse in hospitals Lisa shank CBC News Toronto and so now to the news about Canada's flu season it's possible impacts on hospitals and what's expected in the weeks ahead Allison northcott takes us through it the flu vaccine campaign across Quebec started early this year I don't want to get sick because I'm seniors now our main objective is really to do Mass vaccination the more people that are vaccinated the better it is the flu epidemic will add pressure to a Health Care System already strained by other respiratory viruses and covid-19 pediatric hospitals are struggling we have had to go over capacity in our icus as well and cancel surgeries in order to be able to have the personnel and the beds to look after this really is was a tsunami of viral respiratory infections in our youngest children they just had so many people at one time being admitted and trying to find beds Ryan weichel's daughter just turned six he says she spent much of last week in an Ontario hospital with influenza A for four days yeah we had nothing but trying to care for our daughter and making sure that she made it through she's home now getting better more than half of flu cases so far have been among people 19 and under but others are at risk too they're not just children's books they're they're vulnerable people's viruses so that also means the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions the next few weeks could be hard on the Health Care System says this doctor so it's the beginning of that curve going up we are likely to continue being busy with every single respiratory viruses and their complication whether they are pneumonia or other bacterial complications for the next week few weeks she says the key is to slow transmission to bring that curve back down with Canada's flu season officially here experts recommend a flu shot and a covet booster to help keep the system from being overwhelmed Allison northcott CBC News Montreal there's some news tonight for parents searching for children's pain and fever medication after months of shortages the federal government says it secured a foreign supply of children's acetaminophen it says the medication will be available in pharmacies in the coming weeks Health Canada is urging people to buy only what they need let's turn overseas now where the G20 Summit is underway in Indonesia while the presidents of the U.S and China met on the side much of prime minister Justin Trudeau's Focus was on Russia Rafi bujakanian is in Bali tonight foreign was officially underway the Prime Minister spoke on the side to Business Leaders Russia's brutal war in Ukraine is creating food and energy crises Canada revealed new measures to assist Ukraine 500 million dollars in Aid and new sanctions on Russians linked to the country's Justice and security sectors we will be making sure that the 23 individuals sanctions are also sanctioned by other countries but consensus on Russia still a member of the G20 may be a hard sell for some members the host country Indonesia has been trying to avoid turning the entire Summit into a rebuke of Moscow Canada says its stance on Russia is so clear nobody would ask them to walk it back but is more ambivalent about relations with another country it's lately not been getting along with China Ottawa has been raising human rights concerns over Taiwan Hong Kong and uyghur concentration camps as part of its recently revealed indo-pacific strategy though it still won't say whether it will do that directly at the G20 conversations are always very important and this is how we do a lot of the diplomacy but U.S President Joe Biden sat down with this Chinese counterpart for more than three hours today when I'm not looking for conflict I'm looking to manage this competition responsibly G20 meetings are supposed to end with members signing a joint communique Canada has that it wants to work with China on issues like fighting climate change and nuclear non-proliferation it's however unclear what kind of Common Ground Ottawa could find with the Kremlin today it again said it wants to isolate Russia diplomatically economically and politically Rafi would you can uncbc news Bali Indonesia as Canada continues to add Russians to its sanctions list Russia just added a hundred Canadians to its stop list including me and several other Canadian journalists officials and cultural figures on this list of people barred from entering Russia are also CBC news reporters Chris Brown Margaret Evans and Marie Brewster as well as ctv's Paul Workman and Global's David Aitkin and actor Jim Carrey novelist Margaret Atwood and Alberta Premier Danielle Smith the Ukrainian president appeared in the streets of her son's city today despite the threat of sabotage or assassination Russia's Retreat from the area was just days ago and as Briar Stewart explains its occupation has left deep scars [Applause] Ukraine's President Vladimir zelenski arrived in her son to address soldiers residents cheered him from their windows and crowded around him and his protection on the street people waited for Ukrainian Army for a while for for our soldiers and for all of us [Music] there was an official flag raising ceremony zelenski frequently visits territories that Ukraine has recaptured but this was a very bold move across the nepra river and the other side of this now destroyed bridge is Russia's new position we're ready for peace but our peace for our country in the fields near the Hearthstone airport lie the ruins of Russia's Battlefield loss its troops seized this area north of the city three days into the invasion eight months on equipment is burned and abandoned in the city Crews tear down any signs of Russia's influence but it takes much longer to rebuild the infrastructure that was destroyed as the Russians left there's no water electricity and only a few places where people can get a sell signal s can only get better he says the city has been deoccupied everything will be restored all will be fine Ukraine says it has evidence of at least 400 war crimes committed in this city they say inside this room Russia detained and tortured some residents scrawled on the wall and on paper the Russian national anthem Vitale who would only give CBC his first name said they were forced to learn it or they were beaten he said he was detained here because his son was in the military and the Russians wanted information my whole back was beaten everywhere he said the pain was excruciating and they kept trying to find out where's your son where's this where's that we know he's with the Ukrainian Army he can only share what he says he lived through now because the Russians are gone and Ukrainian officials are able to document just what has transpired here since the start of the war Stewart CBC News London Canada has taken new action on Iran designating it a regime that engages in terrorism and gross human rights violations it's now banned thousands of senior Iranian officials this means that the architects of Oppression including members of the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps will never set foot in Canada again also affected Iran's head of state senior members of government the military and Iranian intelligence Canada and its allies have imposed some tough sanctions since a young woman's death in police custody triggered a massive protest movement in response the regime has imposed its first death sentence human rights activists fear many more are to come now reading the state media says the unnamed person now facing execution was convicted of setting fire to a government building in a statement the White House expressed its concern about Mass arrests sham trials and now a death sentence for protesters voicing legitimate demands the hundreds of protesters already killed at the hands of Iranian State authorities deserve justice the RCMP has arrested a Quebec Hydro employee and charged him with Espionage related defenses including obtaining Trade Secrets this is the first time this charge has been laid in Canada allegedly used information from Hydro Quebec to submit patents and publish papers in China without permission his research focused with Hydro Quebec was on Battery Technology he is due in court tomorrow and a parliamentary committee has agreed to examine China's Espionage in a different area an effort to influence Canadian elections but as Evan Dyer explains while MPS may be unified on the need for a probe the government would prefer it behind closed doors oral questions MPS demanded to hear what the government knows after global news quoted Anonymous sources last week as saying the Trudeau government has long been aware of Chinese interference in the 2019 election we find out that the Prime Minister was told 10 months ago in January about hundreds of thousands of dollars that were illegally funneled to at least 11 election candidates my question is simple who are these 11 election candidates Global Sources didn't reveal those names but said they included candidates from both sides of the aisle today a house committee voted to investigate the matter one potential witness it named is former csis analyst Dennis Molinaro you're talking about influencing at the federal level uh potential elected officials I mean this is it's about a serious I think as it gets but there's disagreement on how to proceed but doing it in the open forum is actually counterproductive liberals say closed door hearings at the national security committee would be more useful than they say documents from the prime minister's office aren't relevant to the probe prime minister nor a Minister's office or the prime minister's office they don't they're not the on the on the front lines of making uh determinations on National Security the opposition wants open hearings where documents would be redacted but Revelations can be made public behind closed doors the opposition might learn more but wouldn't be able to talk about it I generally think just as an overarching principle sometimes um sometimes sunlight is is the best disinfectant because secrecy in this particular realm then allows the adversary to continue to do what it does two former thesis analysts told CBC news that what Canada really needs is a foreign agent registry like its allies so that anyone who accepts money from a foreign government to advance its interest has to declare it or could face charges Evan Dyer CBC News Ottawa after weeks of testimony from provincial and City officials the emergencies act inquiry is now hearing from the feds today from some high-ranking public servants as Marina Von stackleberg shows as communication seemed to be a problem the first day of testimony from federal officials and a lack of coordination with other authorities seemed to be the theme take Canada's intelligence agency when the Convoy arrived ceases didn't think it posed a threat to National Security but it did not warn officials to prepare intelligence is can be very broad it's not an exact science before the federal government invoked the emergencies act it had drafted a plan to meet with Ottawa protesters 80 percent of the protesters and particularly two and two and a half weeks into the protest you know where they've been sitting on the streets of Ottawa in freezing weather um we're probably likely to go if they had the right offer but that meeting never happened it's not yet clear why when Ontario offered to meet blockade protesters in Windsor there was little warning for the federal officials to join there's no way on an hour's notice that he was going to get a decision to sign on other requests went unanswered when Alberta asked for military tow trucks Ottawa drafted a response declining to help but never sent it the resources of the Canadian Armed Forces were not appropriate finally when ottawa's mayor cut a deal with protesters to move some of their vehicles the federal government heard about it after it was a done deal so would it be fair to say that there's sort of these different branches of potential engagement going on with not perfect sight over over no coordination at all no coordination at all okay all of that prompted U.S officials to wonder what was going on repeatedly I got messaging to the extent that why isn't Canada doing more uh their analysis was that the three levels of government were not cooperating these final two weeks of the inquiry will give the public an inside look at the Canadian government's decision making but up first next Brenda lucky the rcmp's top officer Marina Von stockelberg CBC News Ottawa Canada may aspire to leadership on climate change but a new survey puts it among the world's worst carbon emitters Canada uses a lot of energy driving big cars big houses the latest from the

new survey unveiled that the cop 27 conference in Egypt International climate correspondent Susan ormiston explains [Music] Canada is a slick Presence at cop 27 but behind the image the facts are not so pretty across the globe Canada ranks near the bottom on greenhouse gas emissions and other indicators One Step Above Russia and one below China and it hasn't improved much Canada has a long way to go Canada has agreed to phase out coal which is good but it's the smallest problem it's really about oil and gas production which has to be face down in an annual performance review on climate change ranking emissions renewable energy energy use and climate policy Canada came in 58th place out of 63. Canada uses a lot of energy you know driving big cars big houses and in general the efficiency is not very high and Renewables are lacking behind Denmark and Sweden are top performers most oil and gas and gasps in countries like far behind they say we're not doing enough to reduce emissions what's your response I agree Canada's environment Minister says a comprehensive new plan not tracked in this report is improving Canada's standing they haven't looked at everything we've done this year all the regulations that we're putting out the door and getting net zero emissions vehicle mandated in Canada by 2035 an electrical grid that's going to be Net Zero by 2035 putting a cap on oil and gas emissions pop27 is lurching into its final chaotic week here in charmele Shake fresh arrivals Monday piling into the problems one positive sign Joe Biden's meeting with Chinese president Chi the two agreeing to resume climate discussions to be honest with you I'm really encouraged these two big economies they're not only the biggest amateurs their leadership together really matters in climate this week is about countries laying out their promises India floating the idea that phasing down oil and gas should be included in a final document that will be hotly debated Susan ormiston CBC News charmel Sheikh Egypt now electric vehicles may be an important part of any effort to phase out oil and gas but they're not without their own issues especially when it's time to replace them Nisha Patel shows us what's being done about that here at home these are dead electric vehicle batteries but a Canadian startup is giving them new life and it's Kingston Ontario plant life cycle recycles the Lithium-ion batteries that power most EVS as well as phones and laptops and work here is shifting into high gear the more electric vehicles the more consumer batteries Etc we see in the economy the greater the uh the potential is and we want to be able to expand it's a new but quickly growing industry the company literally shreds the batteries sifting out the metals and plastics for recycling so um the main byproduct though is known as Black Mass this is a valuable step Yep this is the valuable stuff this is the most expensive part of your batteries the black mass is a mixture of lithium Cobalt and nickel right now life cycle sends it out for processing but by next year plans to take that on itself it says it can recover 95 percent of those critical minerals needed to make new EV batteries demand for critical minerals has soared one report suggests recycling old DD batteries could reduce the need for new mines by 20 by 2040.
critical minerals are mined in just a few countries amid tight Supply prices have spikes life cycle CEO says it's all the more reason for recycling there's no limit on the number of times the same lithium nickel Cobalt atom can be recycled other battery recyclers like lithium Recycling and retrieve Technologies are also ramping up as three and a half million electric cars are expected to hit Canadian roads by the end of the decade the waste is already emerging there's no plan and there's no supply chain to Hoover it up while Canada hasn't pledged Federal funding for recycling EV batteries the U.S has spending hundreds of millions of dollars experts say Ottawa needs to catch up where policy needs to move forward is all of the money out there for electric car incentives or electric bus purchases actually need to be tied to buses and cars that have a recycling plant attach them there wasn't much talk of recycling when Paul Rappaport bought his Tesla back in 2014. it's very important to know that these batteries are not going to end up in a landfill he says better recycling options will drive more consumers to EVS people will feel a lot better if they know their batteries are going to be recycled or repurposed for these battery will a long road ahead but it's a path that shows promise promise ODB batteries from trash into treasure Nisha Patel CBC News Kingston Ontario you too front man Bono isn't known for holding back his thoughts or feelings on anything and his new Memoir is no exception I want to make peace with myself the maker but I'm not gonna make peace with the world just yet next he sits down with Tom power to talk about his life his music and the anger that's often shaped both Plus nearly two months after Fiona ripped through Atlantic Canada we take you to some communities still struggling to rebuild foreign Irish Punk to Global Superstar to outspoken activist Bono has been a force of nature for more than 40 years a life he's now sharing in his new Memoir surrender 40 songs one story Q host Tom power sat down with Bono to talk Fame family and what drives him to keep making art lovely Dimitri Bono lovely to meet you Tom I loved reading your book I'm breaking that's a lot of book it is and while the book is called surrender I it also could be called like ambition because I find that a really interesting theme going through the book but at the beginning you lead with something I wasn't expecting which is anger and you talk about coming out of the womb with your fists raised in the air is it anger that leads you to Art the surrenders a word that doesn't come easy to me [Music] um or anyone maybe but particularly to me because you're right I was kind of born in Memphis so and metaphorically speaking um sometimes physically uh and I you know I have yes I've written a book with a title I have yet to fully grasp or fathom but yeah it's the antidote to anger but there's some anger I don't want to give up you know I'm I want to make peace with myself my maker but I'm not gonna make peace with the world just yet were you angry when you started YouTube um yeah but I'm I'm I've you know I took I went to anger Management's uh Tom I went to I had some some therapy [Music] foreign I was I'm curious about that like what drives you in the early because it's unbridled ambition off the top I mean I haven't come across many bands where your manager tells you hey you're not really ready to go to London yet and you go to London with your now your wife Ali and who is then your girlfriend and you you go there anyway you age 12. you take
individual meetings with music magazines where does this come from I was actually age 18 but I was more like 12 in the head and my girlfriend now I thought he was 17. and yeah we just I couldn't be waiting around so we went to to London and I brought some cassettes to try and get us a record deal because our manager Paul McGinnis didn't think we were ready he of course was right but but but but so was so were we because it you know there was something in those early songs and and we did eventually you know it was a trip to London where we slept in the station of Paddington which is because we we hadn't booked ourselves a place to stay because God was our travel agent and apparently God didn't get the memo so we just were yeah living on on our faith incredible amount of faith in yourself too but most bands wouldn't would find their manager saying hey you're not ready and wouldn't have the gumption to go across the water and say no I am what I'm curious about is where you think that came from in you yeah there's a scene in the book where I I describe it as as our office in the rain and it was outside the punk Club at the time which is called mcgonagall's and I was screaming at him because he hadn't delivered a van and I was trying to explain to him that the van was the critical piece of of of engineering for any punk band you need a van because with Van comes you know Independence and you can play shows and at that time we were playing shows and we'd spend all the money on the van on the accommodation if you weren't staying in the van and I mean we owe so much to Paul McGinnis um but he he wasn't lacking in self-confidence and he was like you know you you you you know we have to wait um it's a word you don't know and what you need to get to know Bono and we're screaming at each other in the um outside this Punk Club and I suppose he saw in me he saw in Edge and Adam and Larry just four people who needed um our band to be a success even more than him four people who needed yeah needed the band Device I think so you know there's lots of jobs I can think of that are more important than the singer and rock and roll band um but re finding what the job what is the thing that you can do where you feel most yourself and that was for us and for me in particular as I'm here I'm in front of you um I can put my hand up and just go yeah it was mute music kind of Saved My Life [Music] music turned my life from desperation into Joy I was a desperate teenager I'd like to think I would have grown out of it is that um is that a product of that compromise that you had to made I'm going to be in I'm going to do a very selfish Endeavor and be in a band but I'm going to work with everything to eliminate Global poverty to drop dead is that part of that that great compromise you had to make there that's why we're such insufferable um in our activism is because it is baked into who we are you two did our first anti-apartheid show before we signed a record label in our teens um we played it's it's just our idea of what art is even part of that is serve to serve each other and and and in the band I think when we're functioning we serve each other and then to serve the community as a band so this was all at the heart of our religious convictions when we're in our late teens early 20s you lost your mother you had you know you had gone through a lot you know so I lost my mother when I was 14 she died at well she she She fainted we thought at the graveside of her own father and as his casket was being uh you know lifted into the ground lowered into the ground she She fainted and I um I got to see her once after that but she was already departed I think yeah and um yeah so then there was three men living in the house screaming at each other and because we didn't know I uh how to deal with our grief we didn't know what to do my father was particularly challenged in this area so the way he dealt with his grief was just by never mentioning the name of it my mother's name was Iris we never spoke of her again and that is so screwed up but when you're a teenager you don't know that now I have a brother Norman who's seven years older than I am and he doesn't have many memories of a virus either which is way more even though he's older than screwed up he's seven years older so and he and I remember him being close um to my mother but so that's you know we didn't she didn't just die we kind of disappeared her but um as I sometimes say she she would not be denied uh in the music anyway so she came through me you see and there is and I've just realized that this is whatever the grief the grief gave me stuff and took stuff away but it also gave me stuff and the gift of desperation is maybe one way of looking at it so I'm I'm not angry at any uh now in my life about my life or but I'm I'm angry at others lives that are squander the people we step over on the way into our office and that kind of thing I just that I'm still and I don't want to I don't want to grow out of that I'd love you to get a chance to talk to you I feel the same thank you Tom thanks for making the time thank you nice to meet you very good very good indeed you can catch Trump Powers entire interview with Bono tomorrow listen to Q on CBC Radio One at 10 A.M local and to watch the whole conversation just go to YouTube Q on CBC now when Fiona tore a path through Atlantic Canada this fall many communities were left struggling to pick up the pieces we've been here 29 years our kids grew up here our 10 grandchildren grew up here up next we check in with some hard hit communities still dealing with the consequences Plus some major recognition for a hockey Legend kept off the ice by racism [Music] it's been nearly two months since Fiona struck Atlantic Canada many are still picking up the pieces with some weighing whether it's even worth it to rebuild so Tom Murphy looks at how some of the hardest hit communities in Nova Scotia are coping foreign [Music] Huber weeks to build back what Fiona took mere seconds to destroy this is what his family's two-story Cottage used to look like this is it immediately after the storm the top half sheared off by the wind the night of the storm there were four doors sliding doors that were on outlooking the water I mean beautiful on this floor yes but the wind coming that this way breached the doors blew them in popped the roof off and what happened to the roof it must have gone 50 feet in the air that's it over there and it landed in the woods over there way over there and that's it way over there it flew like a kite it must have looked like The Wizard of Oz kind of in the weeks after Fiona the extent of her scars is laid bare hundreds of millions of dollars in Damages coastlines clawed by The Surge Cottages tossed by the tides many of them Beyond repair sure Nova Scotia is known as Canada's ocean playground but the Sea and the wind can be anything but playful on a windy day you recognize the power of the ocean and and that's probably what I didn't really have a good sense of the fishermen up here have a great sense of that and a great respect for it I was probably a little naive now that I'm rebuilding I am building with that in mind and trying to trying to come up with new ideas better ideas but it's no easy task first of all there aren't enough contractors Huber who by the way like many here gambled and did not put insurance on his Cottage is a carpenter but his time spent rebuilding here means he's going deeper in the hole I have good clients and I have good good customers and they understand and they'll wait for me but you're not making any money no no but that's what that's what again I think I said this before I think that's what banks are for [Music] when last we met them Ian and Kathy Scotch were trying to come to terms with the loss of their family Cottage just steps from the beach we've been here 29 years our kids grew up here our 10 grandchildren grew up here and now it's gone it's devastating devastating still hard to process that's what we're still struggling with is processing all the the damage and struggling too with the biggest decision to rebuild or not to rebuild I think this is a great design weeks later they decide to go for it to tempt mother nature in the face of climate change once again there's still nights though where Ian will wake up and he'll he'll say I don't know I think we might be making the wrong decision you know so so I think that'll be you know we're going to do that until we get there because like you say it's not that we have the money to do it we're pulling it from you know just scraping it together the Scots are raising their Cottage lot by four feet and they're building concrete walls and a foundation to hopefully withstand any future tidal surge you would have to own a cottage I think to realize that it like people say oh you had a cottage no we didn't we had a home it was a home over there memories were made and to see that go would be terrible and that was a big factor for us okay we're not doing it for us we're doing it for future generations of Scots and you know that sort of thing others if they have the land are opting to move their Cottages to Higher Ground flood policies don't normally cover damages from Storm surges so it's all about one's comfort with risk Arnold Huber is also trying to build back stronger every time someone says Fiona I think I don't ever want to meet her again I don't blame you it's a lot of sacrifice yeah we're up for the long weekend get the kids working and our family is more together now than they ever have been again I'm a positive I try to spin the positive into anything but has his relationship with the coastline he has come to love changed I I can't stop gosh you've really hit me with something to think about yes I think about it but I don't dwell on it too much right I'm going to make it stronger than it was but I'm not going to go a crazy with it I can't I can't live like that I would have no windows I would be in inside of a hill somewhere in a cave right you want your water view I still want your water view yes yes I want to be able to live and enjoy this place and next time I'll have a big wad of insurance on it too so wary as they may be they rebuild rushing to beat winter hoping come summer they'll once again be able to make lifelong memories here because as the old saying goes Time and Tide wait for no man Tom Murphy CBC News ponds Nova Scotia rebuilding after Fiona will take time and lots of money the Insurance Bureau of Canada estimates the storm caused 660 million dollars in insured damages the costliest extreme weather event in Atlantic Canada's history coming up next on the national some long overdue recognition for a hockey Legend who never got a fair shot my father was one of those people who was clearly a trailblazer how he's being recognized after his death and from one end of the country to the other an Epic Journey over five years completed in Our Moment finally and at long last we celebrate herb Carnegie whose story both inspires and infuriates he is not a household name but tonight herb Carnegie has been posthumously inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder for contributions to the game off the ice but as Camp McIntosh shows us many think he could have been a star except he was black and excluded because of it so this is a replica of what's being hung in the Hockey Hall of Fame herb Carnegie fought for decades to make hockey more inclusive his daughter is elated to finally see him get in the Hockey Hall of Fame the feeling that I have about my father going into the Hall of Fame right now is a sense of peace knowing that his contributions will always be remembered in the 40s Carnegie was a minor Pro star with the Quebec Aces mentoring a young Jean Belvo yet dazzling speed scoring titles but the NHL's color barrier was very real made clear in an Infamous quip from team owner Khan Smythe who said he'd pay anyone ten thousand dollars to turn Carnegie white he was one of the greatest players who never got a chance playing the National Hockey League because of his color filmmaker Kwame Damon Mason has dived deep into Carnegie's story herb Carnegie had a played in the original six at that time when he was at the top of his game the game of hockey will look totally different Carnegie later succeeded in business and as an advocate for diversity his future Aces youth leadership program has endured for 66 years he passed away in 2012. herp Carnegie again made his life work about helping others um not as necessarily as a black man but as a man and he sort of wanted to make a safe inclusive environment for everyone and they actually got the sparkle in his eye getting to the hall was no sure thing it took years of pressure my father was one of those people who was clearly a trailblazer and I think it's so fitting now that his story is going to be recognized he never played a shift in the NHL but herb Carnegie left a mark on the game worthy of the greats Cameron McIntosh CBC News Winnipeg now these two have been on a very long road that Pooch is mallow and that is Melanie Vogel who started walking the Trans Canada Trail way back in 2017. for more than a year they were held up in Yukon by coveted restrictions but that didn't stop them this weekend they reached the Finish Line after five years their journey and the kindness of Canadians along the way is Our Moment June 2nd 2017 I started this what turned out to be a humongous journey in Newfoundland as I walked people would just constantly invite me in I was no stranger to them so it seemed it was not just Newfoundland it was Nova Scotia and then Pi all the way up to the north and now here in British Columbia and it just it was mind-boggling I kind of named it a solo walk powered by human kindness because that's what it really became so many people came out I feel like I don't know so so loved and um [Applause] coming out and I have something left to do and that is taking my shoes off and going into the water all right amazing so Melanie has lived in Canada since 2008 she's originally from Germany and when she talks about the kindness of strangers so many of the people who followed her journey on social media over the past few years are all donating to get her a flight back home to see her parents in Germany that is a national for November the 14th thank you for being with us have a good night [Music]
