The National for Sunday, November 3, 2019


(*)>>Adrienne: TONIGHT, FROM WASHINGTON, D.C., ONE YEAR TO THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, ONE STEP TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT. ONE COMMON THEME –>>President Donald Trump: PEOPLE DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH IMPEACHMENT.>>Adrienne: WE’LL HEAR FROM THE HEART OF TRUMP COUNTRY.>>PLUS, OUR CANDID CHAT WITH ONE OF THE MOST SENIOR MEMBERS OF BARACK OBAMA’S ADMINISTRATION.>>YES, THIS IS A DIFFICULT TIME. IS IT THE MOST DIFFICULT? NO WAY.>>Adrienne: SUSAN RICE ON A DIVIDED AMERICA AND THE CANADIAN MEMORY THAT BRINGS HER TO TEARS.>>I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES.>>Adrienne: ALSO TONIGHT OUR “GO PUBLIC” TEAM INVESTIGATES A SENIOR’S HOME AND ONE FAMILY’S ANGUISH.>>>AND THE POLITICAL CHALLENGE OF A FRUSTRATED PARTY. WHAT THE LIBERALS ARE DOING ABOUT IT.>>>THIS IS “THE NATIONAL.”>>>WE’RE IN WASHINGTON, D.C., TONIGHT JUST OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. CAPITOL BUILDING. THIS TOWN IS BUZZING WITH POLITICAL TENSION AND SOME PARTISAN DIVISION BECAUSE AN ENORMOUS DEMOCRATIC DECISION IS NOW LOOMING. IN EXACTLY ONE YEAR U.S. VOTERS WILL ELECT A PRESIDENT AND WHILE SAYING AN ELECTION IS HISTORIC IS A LITTLE LIKE SAYING THE SUN IS BRIGHT, 2020 ALREADY PROMISES TO BREAK THE MOLD. DONALD TRUMP WILL POSSIBLY BE THE FIRST U.S. PRESIDENT TO RUN FOR RE-ELECTION WITH IMPEACHMENT ON HIS RESUME. TONIGHT WE’LL LOOK AT HIS POLITICAL VULNERABILITY AND HIS ENDURING POPULARITY AND WE’LL GET A WELL-KNOWN WASHINGTON VETERAN’S TAKE. BECAUSE THE WAY THAT BOTH DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS ARE TALKING, WELL, THE NEXT 12 MONTHS WON’T JUST BE ABOUT HISTORY. THEY WILL BE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE U.S. DEMOCRACY. IN THE COMING WEEKS A LOT OF THE DRAMA WILL UNFOLD BEHIND ME AND THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS ENTERING A NEW AND A PUBLIC PHASE. AND SUSAN ORMISTON SHOWS US A WHITE HOUSE RACING TO DISTRACT, DISCREDIT, AND TO DENY.>>Reporter: DONALD TRUMP’S STRATEGY TODAY TO FIGHT IMPEACHMENT? DAMN THE DEMOCRATS, THE MEDIA AND THE POLLS.>>President Donald Trump: I HAVE THE REAL POLLS. THE CNN POLLS ARE FAKE. THE FOX POLLS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN LOUSY. I TELL THEM THEY OUGHT TO GET THEMSELVES A NEW POLLSTER. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE POLLS THAT CAME OUT THIS MORNING, PEOPLE DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH IMPEACHMENT. IT’S A PHONY SCAM. IT’S A HOAX.>>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT IS CLEARLY VEXED HE CAN’T CHANGE THE CHANNEL, SO HE’S JABBING AT THE WHISTLEBLOWER AS A PARTISAN LIAR.>>President Donald Trump: BUT THE WHISTLEBLOWER SHOULD BE REVEALED BECAUSE THE WHISTLEBLOWER GAVE FALSE STORIES. SOME PEOPLE WOULD CALL IT FRAUD. AND I WON’T GO THAT FAR.>>Reporter: OR MAYBE HE WOULD, HE ADDED. THE WHISTLEBLOWER’S LEGAL TEAM SAYS THAT REPUBLICANS CAN ASK HIM WRITTEN QUESTIONS BUT NOT UNMASK HIM. AS FOR THE INQUIRY, THE “WASHINGTON POST” REPORTED THIS WEEKEND THAT SOME SENATE REPUBLICANS WOULD NOW ADMIT THAT TRUMP DID WITHHOLD MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE IN RETURN FOR INVESTIGATING THE BIDENS, BUT THEY’D SAY THAT WAS NOT IMPEACHABLE. TRUMP ADVISOR KELLYANNE CONWAY FLOATED THAT STRATEGY THIS MORNING.>>Reporter: KELLYANNE, YOU NOTABLY WON’T SAY YES OR NO. PRO QUID PRO-, YES OR NO?>>I DON’T KNOW.>>Reporter: DONALD TRUMP CONTINUES TO DENY.>>President Donald Trump: NOT AT ALL.>>Reporter: ONE YEAR OUT FROM THE 2020 ELECTION, WHAT THE PRESIDENT HEARD LAST NIGHT AT A MIXED MARTIAL EVENT IN MADISON SQUARE GARDENS –…>>BOO!>>Reporter: MIMICS THE LATEST POLL ON IMPEACHMENT. BOOS AND CHEERS IN ALMOST EQUAL MEASURES.>>Adrienne: SO NEARLY AN EVEN SPLIT ON IMPEACHMENT AT THE MOMENT. WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW ABOUT AMERICAN VOTERS ONE YEAR OUT?>>Reporter: INCREDIBLY POLARIZED, PERHAPS MORE THAN THE 1960s. AND SO MUCH UNCHARTERED TERRITORY BETWEEN NOW AND THEN, ADRIENNE. WILL THEY FACE AN IMPEACHED PRESIDENT? WILL THEY CHOOSE A LIBERAL OR A MODERATE CANDIDATE? AND THE ECONOMY, WILL IT STAY STRONG OR IF IT SLIPS IT COULD HURT THE PRESIDENT.>>Adrienne: WE COME FROM A COUNTRY WHERE ELECTIONS ARE 40 DAY LONG. TO THINK ABOUT IT AS A YEAR OUT, IT’S SO FAR AWAY. ARE THEY ENGAGED NOW?>>Reporter: INCREDIBLY. THE POLLS SHOW 75% TO 80% OF DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS ARE ALREADY KEENLY INTERESTED IN THE ELECTION. THE CHALLENGE REALLY FOR THE PARTIES IS CAN THEY WHIP UP ENOUGH ENERGY TO GET THEM OUT TO VOTE? BECAUSE AS YOU WELL KNOW AND THEY’VE TOLD ME, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FED UP WITH THE RANCOR AND THE MEAN-SPIRITEDNESS OF THE CURRENT POLITICS.>>Adrienne: ALL RIGHT, SUSAN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. SEE YOU TOMORROW. SO, MUCH MORE TO COME FROM CAPITOL HILL AND YOU’LL MEET DIE-HARD DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS. PAUL HUNTER TAKES US INSIDE OF A TRUMP CAMPAIGN-STYLE RALLY. PLUS “THE NATIONAL” INTERVIEW WITH SUSAN RICE. THE FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR TELLS US SHE’S FINALLY COME AROUND TO THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY.>>>NOW TO NEWS AT HOME. GRIEF IS HANGING THICK OVER WINNIPEG TONIGHT. A DARK FOG THAT WON’T LIFT ANYTIME SOON, ESPECIALLY FOR THE FAMILY OF 3-YEAR-OLD HUNTER STRAIGHT-SMITH. THE LITTLE BOY WAS STABBED IN HIS BED LAST WEEK AND HE DIED YESTERDAY IN HOSPITAL AFTER BEING TAKEN OFF LIFE SUPPORT. THIS EVENING THE FAMILY HELD A VIGIL TO HONOUR HIS SHORT LIFE. ERIN BROHMAN WAS THERE.>>Reporter: THE FAMILY IS TRYING TO FIND COMFORT AFTER UNIMAGINABLE TRAGEDY. DARRYL CONTOIS SPEAKS FOR THE FAMILY.>>A LOT OF PEOPLE CARE. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE OUT HERE TO SUPPORT THE FAMILY WHEN THEY NEED IT.>>Reporter: ALL DAY LONG, PEOPLE BROUGHT FLOWERS AND TREATS AND TOYS TO A MEMORIAL OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE.>>WHEN I HEARD IT, IT JUST HIT HOME. LIKE, A 3-YEAR-OLD, LIKE, IT’S JUST HITS RIGHT AT THE HEART.>>Reporter: WHEN HUNTER DIED IN HOSPITAL SATURDAY NIGHT, HIS FAMILY WAS AT HIS SIDE, HIS MOTHER HOLDING HIS HAND. 33-YEAR-OLD DANIEL JENSEN HAD ALREADY BEEN CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER. POLICE SAY THAT HE WAS OUT WITH THE BOY’S MOTHER, HIS FORMER PARTNER, EARLY WEDNESDAY. IT’S ALLEGED THAT HE ASSAULTED HER AND WENT TO THE HOUSE AND ATTACKED THE BOY WHO WAS IN THE CARE OF AN ADULT FAMILY MEMBER. CONSTABLE ROB CARVER SAYS THAT THE CHARGES WILL BE UPGRADED SOON.>>HE’S CURRENTLY IN CUSTODY AND DETAINED. HE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE. SO WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DO THIS RIGHT.>>Reporter: THERE HAVE BEEN NEARLY 40 HOMICIDES IN WINNIPEG THIS YEAR. A DRAMATIC INCREASE OVER LAST YEAR. THIS OUTREACH WORKER SAYS THAT IT’S TAKING A TOLL.>>THIS LAST BIT OF VIOLENCE CULMINATING IN HUNTER’S DEATH HAS BEEN, LIKE, OVER THE TOP. AND IT MAKES ME FEEL A LITTLE, YOU KNOW, A LOT DISCOURAGED.>>Reporter: BUT HE SAYS THAT COMING TOGETHER LIKE THIS IS NECESSARY.>>YOU NEED TO KEEP MOBILIZING AND WE NEED TO KEEP MEETING AND HAVING CEREMONY AND CREATING SPACES FOR PEOPLE TO HEAL.>>Reporter: THE DEATH OF A CHILD MAKING IT ESPECIALLY HARD.>>IT SHOULD BE HARD. I MEAN BE, WE AS LAW ENFORCEMENT NEED TO BE PROFESSIONAL, BUT THE LAST THING THAT WE WANT TO DO IS TO LOSE OUR HUMANITY. AND I THINK THAT THINGS LIKE THIS REMIND US WE’RE JUST PEOPLE WHO COME TO THAT WORK EVERY DAY AND GO HOME TO OUR FAMILIES AND IT’S HARD. (*)>>Reporter: HUNTER’S FAMILY WAS AT TONIGHT’S VIGIL. THEY SAY THEY’RE TOUCHED BY THE OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT. ERIN BROHMAN, CBC NEWS, WINNIPEG.>>Adrienne: NOW TO A PRETTY DISTURBING STORY FROM BRITISH COLUMBIA. A 94-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WAS CONFINED TO HER ROOM FOR MORE THAN TWO WEEKS AT CHRISTMASTIME AFTER BEDBUGS INFESTED HER APARTMENT IN A SENIOR CARE HOME. AND THE STAFF WERE ALLEGEDLY TOLD NOT TO TELL HER ABOUT THE OUTBREAK. ERICA JOHNSON HAS THIS WEEK’S “GO PUBLIC” INVESTIGATION.>>Reporter: A BEDBUG OUTBREAK. FOOTAGE WAS NERVOUSLY TAKEN LAST DECEMBER BY A NURSING HOME WORKER INSIDE OF THE ROOM OF RITA BEDFORD, 94 AT THE TIME AND BLIND. A RESIDENT AT THE CASCADES, OWNED BY ONE OF CANADA’S BIGGEST NURSING HOME CHAINS, SIENNA.>>TODAY IS A NEW DAY.>>Reporter: BEDBUGS FROM A NEIGHBOURING APARTMENT HAD INFESTED BEDFORD’S ROOM. DOCUMENTS SHOW THAT MANAGEMENT BROUGHT IN PEST CONTROL FOR NEXT DOOR BUT NOT FOR BEDFORD’S APARTMENT. BEDBUGS MULTIPLIED AND MANAGEMENT CONSIGNED BEDFORD TO HER ROOM FOR TWO WEEKS OVER CHRISTMAS. A WORKER SENT THE SECRET VIDEO TO BEDFORD’S DAUGHTER.>>I WAS DUMBFOUNDED AND I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES.>>Reporter: ANOTHER EMPLOYEE TOOK PICTURES, EMAILED THEM TO PROVINCIAL HEALTH AUTHORITIES, WRITING, “PLEASE HELP THESE PERSONS. IT’S INHUMANE.” SHE ALLEGED THAT EVERYONE WAS INFORMED BY MANAGEMENT TO LIE. SINCE BEDFORD WAS BLIND SHE COULDN’T SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON.>>I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT A FACILITY IN CANADA SUBSIDIZED BY THE PROVINCE WOULD ALLOW SOMETHING SO HIDEOUS TO HAPPEN.>>Reporter: B.C.’S MINISTRY OF HEALTH INVESTIGATED AND FOUND THAT THE NURSING HOME WAS NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH SEVERAL REGULATIONS, INCLUDING PROTECTING RESIDENTS FROM ABUSE AND NEGLECT. THIS LAWYER IS CURRENTLY PURSUING DOZENS OF LAWSUITS AGAINST ALL THREE OF CANADA’S BIGGEST NURSING HOME CHAINS, SIENNA AND EXTENDICARE AND REVERA, ALLEGING NEGLECT AND ABUSE.>>I’M INFURIATED THAT WE STILL ARE ALLOWING THESE CORPORATIONS TO MAKE MONEY OFF OUR SENIORS AND STILL ALLOWING THEM TO MAKE THAT MONEY WHILE DELIVERING SHODDY CARE.>>Reporter: THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THE THREE BIG CHAINS HAVEN’T BEEN PROVEN IN COURT. THE COMPANIES SAY THEY DON’T HAVE MERIT. AS FOR THE BEDBUG OUTBREAK, SIENNA DECLINED AN INTERVIEW REQUEST. THE NURSING HOME GIANT DID APOLOGISE TO RITA BEDFORD AND HER FAMILY, SAYING THAT THEIR ACTIONS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. ERICA JOHNSON, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Adrienne: AND REMEMBER THAT THE “GO PUBLIC” STORIES COME FROM YOU. SO DO YOU HAVE A TIP FOR ERICA AND THE TEAM TO INVESTIGATE? IF YOU DO, SEND US AN EMAIL AT [email protected]>>>LAST NIGHT IN EDMONTON, MORE THAN 700 ALBERTANS BROUGHT THEIR GRIEVANCES INTO PUBLIC VIEW AT A RALLY FOR WESTERN SEPARATION, WHAT IS BEING CALLED WEXIT. WELL, TONIGHT OLIVIA STEFANOVICH LOOKS INTO THAT REGIONAL ALIENATION AND HOW IT MIGHT JUST LEAD TO POLITICAL ACTION.>>Reporter: FOR AN EXTREME SIGN OF WESTERN FRUSTRATION, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN THIS UPSIDE DOWN CANADIAN FLAG. WHERE HUNDREDS GATHERED TO DISCUSS SEPARATION.>>WE’RE GOING TO MAKE ALBERTA GREAT AGAIN AND THAT’S WHEN WE CUT OURSELVES OFF FROM THE LEECH THAT IS EERCHT CANADA.>>Reporter: BUT EVEN IN THIS CROWD NOT EVERYONE WANTS OUT OF CANADA.>>THIS COUNTRY IS GOOD, BUT WE DO HAVE TO GET SOME POWER BACK. AND THAT’S WHERE THE SEPARATION COMES IN.>>Reporter: WHETHER IT’S A BARGAINING CHIP OR A SERIOUS THREAT, THIS ALBERTA M.P. SAYS THAT THE FRUSTRATION MUST BE ACKNOWLEDGED.>>IT’S DEEPLY CONCERNING. AND I CAN TELL THAT YOU BACK IN 2015 WHEN I FIRST RAN FOR A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT, I ALMOST NEVER HEARD ANYONE TALK ABOUT WESTERN SEPARATION.>>Reporter: THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE IS SCHEDULING ONE-ON-ONE MEETINGS BETWEEN JUSTIN TRUDEAU AND OTHER PARTY LEADERS, INCLUDING CONSERVATIVE LEADER ANDREW SCHEER. BUT THOSE ARE AT LEAST A WEEK AWAY. AND TRUDEAU HAS TAPPED ANNE McLELLAN, AN ALBERTAN AND A FORMER LIBERAL CABINET MINISTER, TO ADVISE HIM ON WESTERN ISSUES.>>IT’S NOT ABOUT HAVING A LIBERAL FROM ALBERTA ON AN ADVISORY TEAM, NO. IT’S ABOUT ISSUES. AND IT’S ABOUT IN PARTICULAR ENERGY ISSUES.>>Reporter: AFTER THE ELECTION TRUDEAU PROMISED TO LISTEN TO THE WESTERNERS WHO SHUT OUT HIS PARTY.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: TO TALK ABOUT HOW WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT THE CONCERNS, THE VERY REAL CONCERNS OF ALBERTANS, ARE BEING ADDRESSED AND REFLECTED BY THIS GOVERNMENT.>>THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO REFOCUS AND TO REPOSITION IN TERMS OF THEIR POLICIES, PARTICULARLY ON THE ENERGY FILE. PARTICULARLY ON THE ENERGY FILE.>>Reporter: WESTERN M.P.s SAY THAT THE TIME FOR TALK IS OVER. THEY WANT TO SEE PIPELINES BUILT TO MOVE MORE OIL TO MARKET. THE GOVERNMENT SAYS THAT’S WHAT IT’S WORKING ON. OLIVIA STEFANOVICH, CBC NEWS, OTTAWA.>>Adrienne: SO AS SOME WESTERNERS SEEK A NEW DEAL FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, GREEN PARTY LEADER ELIZABETH MAY FACES SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT HER FUTURE. JAELA BERNSTIEN LOOKS AT RUMBLINGS OF CHANGE FROM WITHIN THE RANKS.>>Reporter: AFTER LEADING FEDERAL GREENS FOR MORE THAN A DECADE, ELIZABETH MAY’S NAME IS PRACTICALLY SYNONYMOUS WITH HER PARTY. BUT HER TIME MAY BE OUT.>>SHE’S EXHAUSTED FROM DOING THE JOB. SHE’S 65 YEARS OLD. THE GREEN PARTY NEEDS A GENERATIONAL CHANGE. CLEARLY, SHE’S TAKEN IT AS FAR AS SHE CAN TAKE IT.>>I THINK THAT FOR THE GREEN PARTY, ARE THEY JUST A VEHICLE FOR ELIZABETH MAY OR SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER THAN THAT?>>I CONSIDERED IT.>>Reporter: MAY RECENTLY TOLD CBC THAT SHE’S TOYING WITH THE IDEA OF RUNNING FOR SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. BUT SHE ALSO SUGGESTED THAT SHE MIGHT STAY IN HER ROLE A BIT LONGER IN CASE THERE’S A SNAP ELECTION. SOME PARTY MEMBERS ARE GETTING IMPATIENT.>>I THINK THAT IT’S TIME BECAUSE WE’RE FACED WITH A RISING YOUTH-LED CLIMATE MOVEMENT AND PEOPLE ARE ASKING FOR SOMEWHAT MORE RADICAL SOLUTIONS TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS. PEOPLE WANT TO SEE YOUNG PEOPLE IN POSITIONS OF LEADERSHIP.>>Reporter: THE LEADER OF THE QUÉBEC’S GREEN PARTY WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE BEHIND A RECENT PETITION CALLING FOR A LEADERSHIP REYES. ALEX SAYS THAT HE’D CONSIDER THROWING HIS HAT IN THE RING.>>THE GREEN PARTY HAS BEEN BASED IN B.C. FOR A LONG TIME AND THAT’S WHERE OUR FIRST SUCCESSES CAME FROM. BUT I THINK THAT IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL FOR THE GREEN PARTY TO GO BEYOND BRITISH COLUMBIA AND TO MOVE INTO THE POSITION OF A NATIONAL PARTY ACROSS CANADA.>>Reporter: WHATEVER MAY DECIDES FOR HER FUTURE, SHE’S EARNED RESPECT FROM COLLEAGUES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.>>SHE HAS DONE A REMARKABLE JOB AS LEADER OF THE GREEN PARTY TO PLOW THE GROUND FOR GREENS TO BE ELECTED IN CANADA.>>Reporter: THE FEDERAL COUNCIL AND ITS CAUCUS OF THREE MET THIS WEEKEND IN OTTAWA. NO WORD SO FAR ON WHETHER ANY LEADERSHIP DECISIONS WERE MADE. JAELA BERNSTIEN, CBC NEWS, MONTRÉAL.>>Adrienne: NOW TO SOME OF THE OTHER STORIES THAT WE’RE WATCHING THIS SUNDAY NIGHT…>>WE’VE MADE SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS IN THE LAST 48 HOURS.>>Adrienne: HYDRO QUÉBEC SAYS THAT 110,000 CUSTOMERS ARE STILL WITHOUT POWER FOLLOWING FRIDAY’S STORM. BUT IT DOESN’T EXPECT TO HAVE EVERYONE RECONNECTED BY TUESDAY. WORKERS FROM ONTARIO, NEW BRUNSWICK AND EVEN DETROIT, ARE HELPING HYDRO QUÉBEC WITH THOSE REPAIRS.>>>AND TORONTO POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR A MAN WHO ALLEGEDLY GRABBED AN 8-YEAR-OLD GIRL AFTER SCHOOL ON FRIDAY. THEY SAY THAT HE DRAGGED HER TO HIS S.U.V. BUT SHE WAS ABLE TO BREAK FREE AND THEN RUN AWAY. A DOORBELL CAMERA CAPTURED THE SUSPECT’S VEHICLE DRIVING AWAY.>>AND THERE HAS TO BE MORE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR THE KIDS. AND THAT’S WHY I HAVE PUT UP CAMERAS AS WELL.>>Adrienne: TORONTO SCHOOLS WILL BE REVIEWING SAFETY TIPS WITH KIDS TOMORROW.>>>THE GLOBAL HEAD OF MCDONALD’S HAS BEEN FORCED OUT. THE BOARD SAYS THAT THE PRESIDENT AND THE C.E.O. STEVE EASTERBROOK, VIOLATED COMPANY POLICY BY HAVING A CONSENSUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH AN EMPLOYEE. EASTERBROOK APOLOGISED IN A COMPANY-WIDE EMAIL. AND THE PRESIDENT OF MCDONALD’S U.S.A. IS TAKING HIS PLACE.>>>AND IN BRAZIL, CLASHES BETWEEN THOSE TRYING TO EXPLOIT THE AMAZON AND THOSE TRYING TO PROTECT IT TURNED DEADLY FRIDAY NIGHT. AN INDIGENOUS WARRIOR WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD, AMBUSHED HIS TRIBE SAYS BY ILLEGAL LOGGERS. THE RAINFOREST HAS BEEN AT THE CENTRE OF A TUG OF WAR FOR MONTHS, THE ENVIRONMENT VERSUS THE ECONOMY. PROTECTING WHAT SOME CALL THE LUNGS OF THE EARTH OR USING THAT LAND FOR FARMING AND LOGGING AND MINING. THAT APPROACH IS BLAMED FOR SO MANY OF THE SUMMER’S WILDFIRES. AS SHANNON MARTIN TELLS US, THAT’S WHAT PUSHED THAT WARRIOR INTO ACTION AND MAY HAVE COST HIM HIS LIFE.>>[speaking foreign language]>>Reporter: I’M SCARED SOMETIMES, HE SAYS, BUT WE ARE FIGHTING. SIX WEEKS LATER, PAOLO PAULINO GUAJAJARA IS NOW DEAD, KILLED BY THE PEOPLE THAT HIS TRIBE FIGHTS AGAINST — ILLEGAL LOGGERS. HIS GROUP “THE GUARDIANS OF THE FOREST” SAY THAT THE ONLY WAY TO PROTECT THEIR LAND IS TO DO IT THEMSELVES.>>HE WAS, YOU KNOW, A YOUNG FATHER OF ONE CHILD, MARRIED. AND VERY MUCH A PERSON WHO LIVED IN THE FOREST. HE SAW THE FOREST AS THE FUTURE FOR HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY.>>Reporter: THIS RESEARCHER WHO SPENT DECADES IN BRAZIL SAYS THAT GUAJAJARA HAS LONG BEEN UNDER THREAT, AND VIOLENCE, SHE SAYS, IS GETTING WORSE. THIS VIDEO SHOWS THE GUARDIANS IN THEIR FIGHT AND CARRYING WEAPONS AND TORCHING EQUIPMENT OWNED BY THEIR ENEMY. THE LOGGERS WHO CONSTANTLY TARGET THEIR TERRITORY, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE PROTECTED BY THE BRAZILIAN GOVERNMENT. THE COUNTRY’S JUSTICE MINISTER PLEDGED TODAY TO FIND THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLING. YOU HAVE FAITH THAT THAT WILL HAPPEN, GIVEN THE CONFLICTS THAT HAVE BEEN GOING ON?>>I HAVE TO SAY THAT I’M NOT OPTIMISTIC. THERE HAVE BEEN VERY FEW CASES WHERE INDIGENOUS PEOPLES HAVE BEEN TARGETED AND MURDERED WHERE THE PERPETRATORS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.>>Reporter: BEFORE BECOMING BRAZIL’S PRESIDENT, JAIR BOLSONARO PROMISED TO REVOKE THE PROTECTED STATUS OF AN INDIGENOUS RESERVE. AND WHEN FIRES BURNED IN THE AMAZON THIS SUMMER, HE WAS ACCUSED OF FAVOURING BUSINESS OVER EVERYTHING ELSE. ADVOCATES ARE SAYING THAT THE BOLSONARO GOVERNMENT HAS INDIGENOUS BLOOD ON ITS HANDS AND ADDING THAT THE INCREASE IN VIOLENCE IS A DIRECT RESULT OF HIS HATEFUL SPEECHES.>>[speaking foreign language]>>Reporter: WE ARE PROTECTING OUR LAND, HE SAYS, AND THE LIFE ON IT. SOMETHING THAT THIS YOUNG WARRIOR DID UNTIL THE END. SHANNON MARTIN, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Adrienne: WE HAVE A LOT MORE AHEAD TONIGHT FROM CAPITOL HILL. JUST ONE YEAR NOW UNTIL AMERICA VOTES, AND WITH THAT IN MIND WE SIT DOWN WITH THE FORMER U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR SUSAN RICE. HER THOUGHTS ON IMPEACHMENT, THE ELECTION AND DONALD TRUMP.>>>LATER, PAUL HUNTER TAKES US INSIDE OF TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN-STYLE RALLIES. YOU WILL HEAR FROM LOYAL SUPPORTERS, NOW MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER FOR HIS RE-ELECTION.>>Adrienne: WE ARE BACK AT THE WASHINGTON CAPITOL, UNUSUALLY BUSY THIS WEEKEND WITH A PARADE CELEBRATING THE WASHINGTON NATIONALS’ WORLD SERIES WIN AND AN ELECTION NOW ONE YEAR AWAY. AND CONGRESSIONAL OFFICES ARE PLOTTING THE NEXT MOVES IN THE IMPEACHMENT DRAMA. AS YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN, IMPEACHMENT CLEARLY CONSUMES DONALD TRUMP’S ATTENTION. PART OF HIS MESSAGE NOW FOCUSED ON THE WHISTLEBLOWER WHO STARTED IT ALL.>>President Donald Trump: HE’S A SUSAN RICE GUY. HE’S AN OBAMA GUY. AND HE HATES TRUMP.>>Adrienne: TO BE CLEAR, THAT WHISTLEBLOWER IS STILL ANONYMOUS. BUT IN RAISING SUSPICIONS ABOUT HIS OR HER MOTIVES, IT IS TELLING THAT TRUMP MENTIONS SUSAN RICE, THE FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR SPENT MORE TIME IN THAT ROLE THAN ALL OF TRUMP’S N.S.A.s COMBINED. SO NO SURPRISE IN THIS TOWN THAT HER NAME RESONATES. AMBASSADOR SUSAN RICE IS A WASHINGTON HEAVYWEIGHT. SHE SPENT YEARS WORKING WITH PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, BECOMING A VITAL VOICE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION.>>PROTESTS BEGAN OUTSIDE OF OUR CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI.>>PROTESTS BEGAN OUTSIDE OF OUR CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI.>>Adrienne: FIRST AS THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS, AND LATER AS HIS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. THROUGHOUT IT ALL, SHE’S BEEN TOUGH AND DIRECT. HAPPENS TO HAVE A LOT TO SAY ABOUT WASHINGTON NOW IN HER OWN FULL-THROATED WAY.>>YOU HAVE WENDY GRAHAM IS NOT JUST A PIECE OF [BLEEP] NOW.>>Adrienne: SHE IS BACK IN THE PUBLIC EYE.>>WE SURE AS HELL NEED TO AGREE THAT A HOSTILE FOREIGN POWER HAS NO BUSINESS MESSING WITH OUR ELECTIONS. [Applause]>>Adrienne: HER MEMOIR IS CALLED “TOUGH LOVE” AND CHRONICLES HER TIME ON THE FRONT LINES OF AMERICAN POLITICS. AND WHAT A BATTLEFIELD THAT IS. I MET UP WITH AMBASSADOR RICE THIS WEEKEND IN WASHINGTON. AMBASSADOR RICE, THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH. I REALLY, REALLY APPRECIATE THIS. AND CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NATIONALS.>>OF COURSE AS A WASHINGTON NATIVE WE HAVE TO CELEBRATE THESE THINGS.>>Adrienne: IT IS PRECISELY A YEAR UNTIL THE AMERICANS GO TO THE POLLS AGAIN. HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW ABOUT WHERE THE COUNTRY IS AT ONE YEAR OUT?>>WELL, YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE LIKELY TO WIN. I THINK THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE SEEN A LOT OF DONALD TRUMP NOW AND MUCH OF THE DOWNSIDE OF HIS LEADERSHIP, WHICH IS, YOU KNOW, RIFE WITH DISHONESTY AND RIFE WITH SELF-INTEREST. DOMESTICALLY AND IN TERMS OF FOREIGN POLICY. AND, YOU KNOW, IT’S VERY HARD TO PREDICT WHERE THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WILL END UP. AND WHETHER OR NOT THAT LEADS TO REMOVAL, WHICH I THINK IS UNLIKELY, I THINK THAT IT WILL DEEPEN THE CONCERNS AMONG THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.>>Adrienne: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS WHOLE PROCESS HAPPENING A YEAR OUT?>>LOOK, I THINK THAT I, LIKE A LOT OF DEMOCRATIC VOTERS AND DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, CAME TO THE JUDGMENT BELATEDLY THAT AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WAS NECESSARY. WHEN THE UKRAINE TRANSCRIPT CAME TO LIGHT AND THE ABSOLUTE CLARITY THAT IT SEEMS TO DEMONSTRATE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S INTERESTS IN EXTORTING DIRT ON A POLITICAL RIVAL, FALSE DIRT ON A POLITICAL RIVAL, FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN. AND TO HOLD UP CONGRESSIONALLY APPROVED MILITARY ASSISTANCE TO A COUNTRY THAT NEEDS IT DESPERATELY BECAUSE OF THE RUSSIAN AGGRESSION, IT’S SO OUTRAGEOUS. IT’S SUCH AN ABUSE OF POWER.>>Adrienne: THERE’S A REAL DIVIDE IN THIS COUNTRY AND I THINK THAT I WAS A BIT TAKEN ABACK BECAUSE I KNOW THAT IT’S VERY PERSONAL FOR PEOPLE, THE DIVISIONS. BUT I DIDN’T KNOW THAT YOU’RE EXPERIENCING THE DIVISIONS WITHIN YOUR OWN FAMILY? YOUR OWN SON, JAKE, IS COMPLETELY POLITICALLY OPPOSITE FROM YOU.>>NOT COMPLETELY, BUT HE’S A STAUNCH CONSERVATIVE. AND AS I WRITE IN THE BOOK, THERE ARE AREAS WHERE WE AGREE. THERE IS MORE AREAS WHERE WE DISAGREE, PARTICULARLY ON DOMESTIC POLICY. BUT HE’S MY SON AND I’M VERY PROUD OF HIM. I LOVE HIM TO DEATH, JUST AS I LOVE MY DAUGHTER WHO IS A BIT YOUNGER AND QUITE A BIT TO THE LEFT. SO WE’VE GOT A BIT OF BOTH IN OUR HOUSEHOLD. AND MY HUSBAND, IAN AND I, ARE SOMEWHAT IN THE MIDDLE AND TRYING TO KEEP THE FOOD FROM FLYING AT THE DINNER TABLE.>>Adrienne: DOES IT MAKE YOU LOOK AT THIS COUNTRY DIFFERENTLY THOUGH, WITH MORE EMPATHY FOR THE DIVIDES?>>I ACTUALLY FEEL QUITE FORTUNATE THAT I HAVE THE INSIGHT INTO HOW A SUBSTANTIAL PORTION OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY ARE THINKING. AND I, YOU KNOW, I TRY TO UNDERSTAND IT. AND TO BE RESPECTFUL OF THOSE DIFFERENCES. AND SO ONE OF THE GIFTS THAT OUR SON JAKE HAS GIVEN US IS A BROADER PERSPECTIVE. AND A SENSE OF URGENCY ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF TRYING TO FIND COMMON GROUND.>>Adrienne: DO YOU THINK THAT AMERICANS AT THIS MOMENT ARE ABLE TO RECONCILE THESE DIFFERENCES?>>I THINK THAT WE HAVE TO. I REFUSE TO BET AGAINST AMERICA’S ABILITY TO GROW AND TO RENEW ITSELF. AND TO HEAL.3 AMERICA’S ABILITY TO GROW AND TO RENEW ITSELF. AND TO HEAL. AND SO, YES, THIS IS A DIFFICULT TIME. IS IT THE MOST DIFFICULT? NO WAY. CAN WE DO IT? YES. BUT THE NATURE OF THE CHALLENGES ARE SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT GIVEN THIS NEW POLITICAL AND MEDIA ENVIRONMENT. YOU KNOW, IF WE DON’T CONFRONT THESE DIVISIONS WITH A SENSE OF URGENCY AND NECESSITY, THAT THEY COULD BE WHAT UNDERMINES OUR — NOT ONLY OUR GLOBAL LEADERSHIP BUT OUR DEMOCRACY.>>Adrienne: AS YOU KNOW, CANADA’S RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA RIGHT NOW IS REALLY RAW, AND NOT VERY GOOD. AND STEMMING LARGELY FROM THAT ARREST OF MENG WANZHOU AS YOU KNOW. SHOULD CANADA HAVE BEEN ASKED TO ARREST HER BY THE AMERICANS?>>I THINK, YES. I ASSUME THAT THERE WAS SIGNIFICANT EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT SHE HAD COMMITTED A CRIME. WHAT WORRIES ME THOUGH IS HOW PRESIDENT TRUMP SUGGESTED, HAVING ASKED FOR THE ARREST TAX WE MIGHT TRADE HER AT YOUR EXPENSE IN THE CONTEXT OF SOME TRADE NEGOTIATION IF IT WERE BENEFICIAL IN HIS ESTIMATION TO GET WHAT WE WANT IN A TRADE DEAL. THAT’S NOT RIGHT.>>Adrienne: KNOWING THE CHINESE LEADERSHIP THE WAY THAT YOU DO AND THE WAY THAT IT WORKS, HOW DOES CANADA GET OUT OF THIS?>>YOU KNOW, I DON’T THINK THAT CANADA BENEFITS FROM CAVING AND I REALIZE THAT THERE ARE CITIZENS WHO ARE IN DETENTION AND IT’S A VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND UNPLEASANT PLACE TO BE. BUT IN MY EXPERIENCE, CHINA WILL — IF YOU GIVE THEM AN INCH, THEY’LL TAKE A MILE WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS OF THIS SORT.>>Adrienne: WHAT IS THE SECURITY RISK TO CANADA IF IT DOES BUSINESS WITH HUAWEI, WHILE THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT?>>Adrienne: IT’S HARD FOR ME TO EMPHASIZE ADEQUATELY WITHOUT GETTING INTO CLASSIFIED TERRAIN HOW SERIOUS IT IS, PARTICULARLY FOR COUNTRIES THAT ARE PART OF THE FIVE EYES, INTELLIGENCE-SHARING NETWORK WITH THE UNITED STATES. SO U.K., CANADA AND AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND AND THE U.S. FOR THOSE COUNTRIES IN PARTICULAR TO BE RELIANT ON HUAWEI TECHNOLOGY. IT GIVES THE CHINESE THE ABILITY IF THEY CHOOSE TO USE IT TO ACCESS ALL KINDS OF INFORMATION, INTELLIGENCE, MILITARY, THAT COULD BE VERY, VERY COMPROMISING. SO AS MUCH AS I DISAGREE WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ON A NUMBER OF THINGS, ON THIS, THEIR CONCERN ABOUT HUAWEI, I BELIEVE THAT THEY’RE RIGHT. I BELIEVE THEY HAVE HANDLED IT BADLY. THERE’S ALL KINDS OF WAYS THAT THEY’RE DOING THINGS AROUND THIS ISSUE, WHICH ARE UNHELPFUL, BUT ON THE VERY SPECIFIC CONCERN ABOUT HUAWEI, I THINK THAT IT’S, FRANKLY, QUITE JUSTIFIED.>>Adrienne: IN TERMS OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES AND THE REST OF THE FIVE EYES, IF CANADA DOES BUSINESS WITH HUAWEI IN THE FUTURE, AS A MATTER OF PROTECTION, WOULD THE UNITED STATES HAVE TO HAVE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SECURITY RELATIONSHIP WITH CANADA?>>YES. AND THAT WILL THROW THE FIVE EYES’ COLLABORATION, WHICH IS SERVING THE SECURITY INTERESTS OF EVERY CANADIAN AND EVERY AMERICAN, INTO JEOPARDY. IT CAN’T BE DONE.>>Adrienne: CAN’T SHARE?>>I DON’T SEE HOW WE CAN SHARE IN THE WAY THAT WE HAVE. IT’S NOT A JOKE. IT’S TRULY SERIOUS.>>Adrienne: YOUR CONNECTIONS TO CANADA ARE VERY STRONG. YOUR HUSBAND IAN IS A CANADIAN AND HE WAS A PRODUCER AT THIS PROGRAMME. AND YET I WAS SURPRISED IN READING YOUR BOOK THE IMPACT OR THE MEANING OF THE MOMENT OF THE DEATH OF BARBARA FRUM FOR YOUR FAMILY.>>YEAH. IAN IS MY HUSBAND — WHO WAS THEN MY FIANCÉ — WAS ONE OF HER SENIOR PRODUCERS ON “THE JOURNAL.” AND HE WAS QUITE CLOSE TO HER. AND THROUGH IAN I HAD GOTTEN TO KNOW BARBARA. SHE WAS A REAL CHAMPION OF OUR IMPENDING MARRIAGE. AND VERY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT IT. AND ABOUT THREE OR FOUR MONTHS BEFORE WE WERE DUE TO GET MARRIED, I KIND OF FREAKED OUT AND I STARTED TO HAVE REAL ANXIETIES ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT I WAS READY TO GET MARRIED AND COULD MAKE THAT KIND OF COMMITMENT. WE HAD BEEN LIVING TOGETHER AND MOVED OUT FOR A PERIOD OF TIME. AND ONE MORNING AS HE’S GETTING READY TO FLY BACK FROM SOUTH AFRICA, I WAKE UP TO CBC RADIO, LIKE I ALWAYS DID, AND THE NEWS COMES ON THAT BARBARA FRUM HAD DIED. AND I WAS SHAKEN AND REALLY SADDENED. AND IT MADE ME REALIZE THAT THIS WAS A RELATIONSHIP THAT I WANTED TO BE IN FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE, THAT SHE WAS RIGHT ABOUT THE FACT THAT WE WERE RIGHT TOGETHER. AND I HAD THIS SORT OF MOMENT OF BEING, THIS MOMENT OF CLARITY, WHERE I REALISED THAT I HAD TO SEE IF HE WOULD TAKE ME BACK. AND I ALSO HAD TO TELL HIM THAT BARBARA HAD PASSED. SO I TRIED TO GET HIM PAGED IN THE JOHANNESBURG AIRPORT. AND I GUESS THEY SENT THE MESSAGE TO COME TO ONE OF THOSE WHITE COURTESY TELEPHONES. AND I SAID HONEY, YOU KNOW — WE HADN’T SPOKEN IN OVER A MONTH — I SAID, TWO THINGS — ONE, I HOPE THAT YOU’LL TAKE ME BACK, I REALLY DO WANT TO MARRY YOU. AND, TWO, I WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT BARBARA PASSED AND I DIDN’T WANT YOU TO BE SURPRISED BY THAT NEWS. HE SAID THAT HE’D TAKE ME BACK. AND THEN, OBVIOUSLY, WE MOURNED BARBARA’S PASSING TOGETHER. BUT SHE REALLY WAS A CATALYST IN MY THINKING ABOUT WHAT MATTERED. SHE DID US A HUGE SERVICE IN A WAY.>>Adrienne: SHE’D BE SO PROUD OF YOU NOW.>>THANK YOU.>>Adrienne: I GUESS THAT SHE’D PROBABLY ASK YOU WHAT IT WOULD TAKE FOR YOU TO RUN.>>FOR WHAT?>>Adrienne: FOR OFFICE. WHICHEVER ONE YOU WANT.>>IT WOULD TAKE ME BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE PERSONALLY. WE HAVE ONE KID IN COLLEGE, ONE KID STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL IN HER 11th GRADE YEAR, BOTH OF WHOM HAVE SUFFERED THROUGH EIGHT YEARS OF MY SERVICE UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA.>>Adrienne: BUT THAT’S NOT A NO?>>THAT’S NOT A NO. BUT WHAT I MIGHT RUN FOR — I THOUGHT ABOUT THE SENATE AND I THOUGHT ABOUT, FRANKLY, OTHER KINDS OF OFFICES, HIGHER AND LOWER.>>Adrienne: ANY OF THE DEMOCRATIC HOPEFULS PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALLED YOU?>>YES. FOR ADVICE, NOT FOR ANYTHING ELSE. [laughter]>>Adrienne: NOT EVEN FOR SEEING YOUR NAME ON A TICKET?>>NO, I CAN’T IMAGINE THAT.>>Adrienne: ALSO NOT A NO?>>I CAN’T IMAGINE IT. I’VE NOT ENDORSED ANYBODY YET. BUT THERE’S SEVERAL STRONG CANDIDATES IN MY JUDGMENT THAT I THINK THAT WOULD MAKE EXCELLENT PRESIDENTS. AND I’M HOPEFUL THAT WE’LL END UP WITH ONE OF THEM.>>Adrienne: A YEAR FROM NOW?>>A YEAR FROM NOW.>>Adrienne: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU, ADRIENNE, I APPRECIATE IT. DANG, YOU MADE ME CALL ABOUT BARBARA FRUM.>>Adrienne: I’M SORRY. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH MUCH MORE FROM CAPITOL HILL. DONALD TRUMP WILL NEED THEIR VOTE NEXT NOVEMBER. PAUL HUNTER GOES IN-DEPTH IN THE HEART OF TRUMP COUNTRY NEXT. (*) (*)>>Adrienne: WELCOME BACK TO WASHINGTON. IN EXACTLY ONE YEAR THE U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WILL BE HELD. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS WILL NEED TO RALLY THEIR BASES AND GET OUT THE VOTE. FOR DONALD TRUMP THE CAMPAIGNING HAS NEVER REALLY STOPPED AND AS PAUL HUNTER FOUND OUT ON A TRIP TO MISSISSIPPI, NEITHER HAS THE LOVE OF HIS MOST ARDENT SUPPORTERS.>>LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE WELCOME THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD J. TRUMP. (*)>>Reporter: THEY ARE PART ROAD SHOW, PART LOVE-IN. BUT DONALD TRUMP’S PRESIDENTIAL RALLIES ARE ALL PART OF DONALD TRUMP.>>U.S.A.! U.S.A.!>>President Donald Trump: WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND HELLO. HELLO TUPELO.

AND MORE PEOPLE CAN BE BURIED THERE OVER TIME. ANYONE OPTING IN AGREES TO BE BURIED IN A SHROUD OR A BIODEGRADABLE CONTAINER AND IT’S ONLY FOR NEW GRAVES. NO ONE ALREADY BURIED WILL BE DISTURBED.>>WE CAN’T TELL YOU EXACTLY WHICH GRAVE WE’RE GOING TO ASSIGN YOU TO BUT WE CAN AT LEAST ASSIGN YOU TO A CLUSTER OF FOUR OR FIVE.>>Reporter: THESE ARE NOT MASS GRAVES?>>NO, NO, NO.

KAREN PAULS, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Adrienne: AFTER THE BREAK, WE WILL BRING YOU OUR “MOMENT” WHICH WE PROMISE IS NOT A DÉJÂ-VU. VISITORS WERE ONCE AGAIN UNABLE TO VISIT THIS POPULAR CHINESE GARDEN IN VANCOUVER WHICH WAS CLOSED FOR A RESCUE MISSION. (*)>>Adrienne: SO THIS POPULAR CHINESE GARDEN IN VANCOUVER WAS CLOSED TEMPORARILY THIS WEEKEND. WHY? WELL, TO RESCUE THEIR PRIZED KOI FISH. SIX WERE FOUND DEAD THIS WEEK AND AN OTTER WAS SPOTTED IN THE GARDEN. SO IF THIS SOUNDS VAGUELY FAMILIAR, IT’S ALSO BECAUSE THIS HAPPENED A YEAR AGO. A SIPLY OTTER ATE 11 KOI FISH BEFORE THE REST WERE REMOVED TO SAFETY. THERE’S DIVIDED LOYALTIES, WE’RE ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT POLARIZED NATIONS AND THIS IS TONIGHT’S “MOMENT.”>>I’M PRO KOI.>>THE ON THER HAS TO EAT. I DON’T KNOW, IF THERE’S FOOD LAID OUT FOR HIM.>>POOR KOI. NO, WELL, YOU HAVE TO PROTECT THEM. THEY’RE VERY EXPENSIVE I HEARD. SO JUST I GUESS WE HAVE TO REMOVE THE OTTER.>>HE WAS HERE FIRST. HE’S GOT TO EAT. KOI ARE NOT INDIGENOUS TO THIS AREA. THE OTTERS WERE HERE FIRST.>>IT IS HIS HOME TURF AND AT A DISADVANTAGE WITH THE OTTER COMING INTO THEIR TURF BASICALLY. SO I’M TEAM KOI.>>Adrienne: WHY ARE WE ALWAYS FIGHTING? ALL RIGHT, SO THE DEAL IS THAT THE OTTERS SEEMED TO EAT SIX OF THESE KOI BETWEEN TUESDAY AND FRIDAY WHEN THEY HAD TO LOWER THE POND. THE WATER IS STILL LOW. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO RAISE IT UNTIL THEY’RE SURE THAT IT’S SAFE. AND THEY’RE NOT SURE THAT IT’S SAFE YET.>>>THAT IS “THE NATIONAL” FOR NOVEMBER 3rd. WE’LL SEE YOU AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT FROM RIGHT HERE IN WASHINGTON. UNTIL THEN, THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. GOODNIGHT.
