The National for Thursday, Oct. 31 — Halloween confusion; Shooting caught on video


(*)>>Adrienne: TONIGHT, A SHOCKING DISPLAY OF GUN VIOLENCE IN TORONTO. A BRAZEN TARGETED ATTACK LEAVES FIVE TEENS W WOUNDED.>>IT’S TERRIFYING, LIKE, THERE’S LITTLE KIDS AROUND HERE.>>Adrienne: HOW CAN THE CITY STOP THE SHOOTING?>>>A BIBIG STEP TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT. THE HOUSE APPROVES TAKING THE INQUIRY PUBLIC. AFTER SOME HIGH-PROFIFILE CRITICISM, IS ANDREW SCHEER’S LEADERSHIP UNDER THREAT? “AT ISSUE” IS STANDING BY.>>OUR KIDS NEED TO LEARARN HOW TO BE GRITTY.>>Adrienne: AND IN MONTRÉAL, TRICK-OR-TREATERS BRAVE THE RAIN AND HIT THE STREETS, PROVING THAT THERE’S NO POSTPONING HALLOWEEN.>>>THIS IS “THE NATIONAL.”>>>TORONTO IS ON TRACK TO HIT A DISTURBING RECORD, MORE SHOOTINGS THAN EVER BEFORE IN A SINGLE YEAR. AND WITH THREE VIOLENT ATTACKS, INCLUDING ONE LATE TONIGHT, THERE ARE SERIOUS QUESTIONS WHETHER THE CITY CAN GET A HANDLE ON THIS THIS. ONE INCIDENT TARGETING FIVE TEENAGERS WAS CAPTURED ON CAMERA. ELLEN MAURO BEGINS OUR COVERAGE WITH A SECURITY VIDEO.>>Reporter: THE VIDEO IS CHILLING, THE GUNMAN’S ACTIONS CALCULATED. THESE MEN OPENING FIRE ON FIVE TEENAGERS BEFORE FLEEING A TORONTO APARTMENT BUILDING. A SHOOTING SO BRAZEN THAT THE POLICE CHIEF RUSHED TO THE SCENE, CALLING IT A TARGETED ATTACK.>>MY CONCERN IS THAT THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE RIGHT NOW THAT HAVE NO ISSUE SHOOTING A FIREARM IN THE CITY OF TORONTO.>>Reporter: A CITY STRUGGLING TO STOP RISING GUN CRIME. THIS MORNING JUST A LITTLE OVER 12 HOURS LATER AND ONLY A FEW MINUTES AWAY FROM THE FIRST SHOOTING, ANOTHER SHOOTING HAPPENED AT THIS APARTMENT COMPLEX BEHIND ME. ONE MAN WAS BROUGHT TO HOSPITAL. THE VICTIMS FROM BOTH SHOOTINGS ARE EXPECTED TO LIVE. THAT DOESN’T TAKE AWAY THE FEAR.>>IT’S TERRIFYING. LIKE, THERE’S LITTLE KIDS AROUND HERE. LIKE THE PARK IS RIGHT BESIDE US.>>Reporter: SO FAR THIS YEAR THERE HAVE BEEN 398 SHOOTINGS, 33 PEOPLE KILLED. AND MORE THAN 194 INJURED.>>I REMAIN DEEPLY TROUBLED BY IT BUT I’M ALSO HONEST IN SAYING THAT I DON’T HAVE A MAGIC ANSWER AND I’M NOT AWARE OF ANYBODY ELSE WHO DOES.>>Reporter: AFTER A RASH OF SHOOTINGS THIS SUMMER, INCLUDING AT THE RAPTORS’ VICTORY PARADE, THE THREE LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT HAD LAUNCHED “PROJECTS COMMUNITY SPACE.” IT MEANT, AMONG OTHER THINGS, INCREASED POLICE PRESENCE IN AREAS AFFECTED BY GUNS. THE PROJECT WAS SUPPOSED TO END TODAY. BUT GIVEN THE VIOLENCE IT’S BEEN EXTENDED INDEFINITELY.>>WE WILL BE STAYING THE COURSE ON DOING THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO DO — SUPPORT FOR POLICE, YOU KNOW, WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN VITAL.>>AND POLICING IS NOT GOING TO STOP THIS.>>Reporter: AND NEITHER WOULD A MUNICIPAL HANDGUN BAN ENABLED BY THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT, SAYS THIS ANTI-GUN ACTIVIST.>>WE NEED INVESTMENT IN COMMUNITY. WE NEED INVESTMENT IN FAMILIES. WE NEED MORE POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH COMMUNITY.>>Reporter: AND TONIGHT POLICE NEED ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THESE SUSPECTS. ELLEN MAURO, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Adrienne: AND DEVELOPING LATE TONIGHT, THERE IS WORD OF YET ANOTHER SHOOTING. PARAMEDICS ARE CONFIRMING TWO MALE TEENAGERS HAVE SERIOUS INJURIES. THEY HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED TO HOSPITAL. THE GUNSHOTS WERE HEARD AT THE BACK OF A BUILDING IN TORONTO’S EAST END. THAT MAKES EIGHT PEOPLE SHOT IN THE PAST 24 HOURS. MORE NOW THAT TERRIBLE STORY OUT OF WINNIPEG WHERE A 3-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS STABBED IN HIS BED IN THE MIDDLE OF NIGHT. POLICE HAVE ARRESTED THE MAN THEY BELIEVE IS RESPONSIBLE. NELLY GONZALEZ SPOKE WITH THE BOY’S FAMILY TODAY ABOUT HOW THEY’RE COPING. (*)>>Reporter: FAMILY AND FRIENDS HELD A VIGIL OUTSIDE A HOSPITAL WHERE A LITTLE BOY IS FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE.>>LIKE, HOW CAN A HUMAN DO SUCH A THING TO AN INNOCENT WEE BABY THAT WAS SLEEPING?>>Reporter: THE BOY’S AUNT SAYS THAT HE REMAINS IN CRITICAL CONDITION IN HOSPITAL.>>IN MY HEART I FEEL THAT HE’S DOING MUCH BETTER THAN YESTERDAY.>>Reporter: CBC NEWS IS NOT NAMING THE AUNT TO PROTECT THE IDENTITY OF THE CHILD. THE FAMILY SAYS THAT THE TODDLER WAS STABBED IN THE NECK IN HIS BED. TODAY 33-YEAR-OLD ON DAN JENSEN WAS CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER. IT’S BELIEVED THAT THE MAN TARGETED THE BOY AFTER AN ARGUMENT WITH THE MOM EARLIER IN THE NIGHT.>>THE SUSPECT WAS PREVIOUSLY KNOWN TO THE CHILD’S MOTHER. THEY WERE INVOLVED IN A RELATIONSHIP. HE’S NOT THE BIOLOGICAL FATHER OF THE CHILD. AND SHE SUFFERED A NUMBER OF INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THE ASSAULT ON HER.>>Reporter: ACCORDING TO COURT DOCUMENTS, JENSEN WAS OUT ON BAIL WHEN THE ATTACK HAPPENED. IN JULY HE WAS CHARGED WITH ASSAULT WITH A WEAPON AND UTTERING THREATS AGAINST THE BOY’S MOTHER. HE WAS ORDERED NOT TO HAVE CONTACT WITH HER. THE BOY’S AUNT SAID THAT JENSEN WOULD NOT LEAVE HER SISTER ALONE.>>DAN WAS A JEALOUS MAN.>>Reporter: THIS IS THE THIRD VIOLENT CRIME INVOLVING A CHILD IN WINNIPEG IN THE LAST WEEK AND OVER THE WEEKEND A 14-YEAR-OLD GIRL WAS STABBED TO DEATH AT A HALLOWEEN PARTY AND A BABY SHOT INSIDE OF A HOME. THAT BABY IS EXPECTED TO LIVE. THE BOY’S MOTHER IN THIS CASE IS RECOVERING FROM HER INJURIES AND HASN’T LEFT HER SON’S SIDE. NELLY GONZALEZ, CBC NEWS, WINNIPEG.>>Adrienne: IN THE UNITED STATES A BIG STEP TODAY IN THE DONALD TRUMP IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. IN A DIVIDED HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, A VOTE PASSED, SETTING GROUNDRULES FOR HOW TO MOVE THE INQUIRY OUT FROM BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND RIGHT INTO THE PUBLIC EYE. AT ISSUE IS WHETHER THE PRESIDENT PRESSURED A FOREIGN LEADER TO INVESTIGATE HIS POLITICAL RIVAL. AS AARTI POLE SHOWS US, TRUMP’S TEAM IS ALREADY CRYING FOUL.>>THE RESOLUTION IS ADOPTED WITHOUT OBJECTION…>>Reporter: THAT VOTE PUTS DONALD TRUMP ON TRACK TO POSSIBLY TO BECOME THE THIRD PRESIDENT TO BE IMPEACHED.>>TODAY THE HOUSE TAKES THE NEXT STEP FORWARD AS WE ESTABLISH THE PROCEDURES FOR OPEN HEARINGS SO THAT THE PUBLIC CAN SEE THE FACTS FOR THEMSELVES.>>Reporter: ALL BUT TWO DEMOCRATS WHO HOLD A MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE, SUPPORTED THE RESOLUTION. NO REPUBLICANS DID. IT SETS OUT RULES FOR MAKING THE INQUIRY THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS PUBLIC. REPUBLICANS HAD DEMANDED THAT, EVEN STORMING A SECURE ROOM WHERE THE TESTIMONY WAS UNDERWAY LAST WEEK. TODAY THOUGH THEY SAY THAT THE NEW RULES ARE PARTISAN.>>THE PRESIDENT HAS HAD NO RIGHTS INSIDE OF THESE HEARINGS.>>Reporter: UNDER THE GUIDELINES, THE REPUBLICANS CAN CROSS-EXAMINE WITNESSES AND CAN SUBPOENA THEIR OWN. BUT HOUSE DEMOCRATS GET VETO POWER. AND THE RULES ENABLE PUBLIC HEARINGS AND THE RELEASE OF PREVIOUSLY GATHERED WITNESS TESTIMONY.>>IF, AFTER A FAIR AND THOROUGH INQUIRY, THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE FOUND TO BE TRUE, THEY WOULD REPRESENT A PROFOUND OFFENSE AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION AND AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY.>>Reporter: AT THE HEART OF THE INVESTIGATION? IF TRUMP DID, IN FACT, ACT INAPPROPRIATELY AND TRIED TO PRESSURE UKRAINE INTO INVESTIGATING FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AND PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JOE BIDEN AND HIS SON. ALREADY SOME WITNESSES HAVE CORROBORATED THE CLAIMS. BUT SHORTLY AFTER THE HOUSE VOTE, THIS FROM THE PRESIDENT ON BRITISH RADIO…>>President Donald Trump: YOU KNOW, THE TRANSCRIPT OF THE CALL THAT I HAD WITH THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT IS A PERFECT AND TOTALLY APPROPRIATE DOCUMENT. AND THEY ARE USING THAT TO TRY TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.>>Reporter: ALL OF THIS IS PLAYING OUT AHEAD OF THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND SOME STRATEGISTS SAY THAT IT SETS THE STAGE FOR AN EVEN MORE DIVISIVE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN THAN WHEN TRUMP WAS FIRST ELECTED. DIVISION THAT COULD FURTHER ENERGIZE TRUMP’S BASE. AARTI POLE, CBC NEWS, WASHINGTON.>>Adrienne: SO FROM THIS POINT THE WHOLE PROCESS COULD MOVE VERY QUICKLY. THERE IS NO SET DATE FOR WHEN THE PUBLIC HEARINGS COULD BEGIN BUT THE U.S. MEDIA BELIEVE THAT IT COULD BE AS EARLY AS MID-NOVEMBER. SOME STAR WITNESSES COULD BE ASKED TO TESTIFY AGAIN IN PUBLIC. LIKE ACTING U.S. AMBASSADOR TO UKRAINE BILL TAYLOR. AND HIS PREDECESSOR MURRAY Y URVE VANOVITCH. THEY COULD QUESTION THE WITNESSES AND WHEN IT’S ALL DONE, POSSIBLY AS EARLY AS THE END OF NOVEMBER, A REPORT WILL GO TO THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND TO RECOMMEND FOR THE HOUSE TO IMPEACH TRUMP. IF SO IT MOVESES TO THE CONCERN-CONTROLLED SENATE WHO HAS THE FINAL SAY ON WHETHER TRUMP IS REMOVED FROM OFFICE. INTERESTINGLY THIS IS ALL HAPPENING AT SUCH A CRUCIAL TIME. SUNDAY MARKS ONE YEAR UNTIL THE U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. SO THIS WEEKEND I’LL BE HOSTING FROM WASHINGTON WITH SOME SPECIAL COVERAGE. NOW AARTI MENTIONED TRUMP CALLED INTO THAT BRITISH RADIO SHOW. WELL HE WAS TALKING TO A FAMILIAR POLITICAL ALLY, THE BREXIT PARTY’S NIGEL FARAGE. AND TRUMP ALSO WEIGHED IN ON THE UPCOMING SNAP ELECTION IN THAT COUNTRY AND TRUMP CALLED BRITISH PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON “A FANTASTIC MAN” AND THEN SAID THIS ABOUT JOHNSON’S OPPOSITION.>>President Donald Trump: CORBYN WOULD BE SO BAD FOR YOUR COUNTRY. HE’D BE SO BAD. HE’D TAKE YOU IN SUCH A BAD WAY. HE’D TAKE YOU INTO SUCH BAD PLACES.>>Adrienne: JEREMY CORBYN WROTE IN PART, “DONALD TRUMP IS TRYING TO INTERFERE IN BRITAIN’S ELECTION TO GET HIS FRIEND, BORIS JOHNSON, ELECTED.” U.K. PARTY LEADERS HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO STRIKE A BREXIT DEAL SO JOHNSON CALLED FOR A SNAP ELECTION TO LET THE VOTERS TO DECIDE WHO SHOULD STEER THE PROCESS.>>TO CALIFORNIA NOW WHERE THE FIRES, THE FEROCIOUS WINDS AND FEARS OF A MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT EXODUS JUST WILL NOT LET UP UP. UNPRECEDENTED SANTA ANA WINDS TURNED SMALL BRUSH FIRES INTO INFERNOS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AGAIN OVERNIGHT. THE FLAMES RACING DOWN HILLSIDES EAST OF L.A. IN JUST MINUTES, FORCING PEOPLE AND ANIMALS TO RUN FOR THEIR LIVES. SOME AREAS THOUGH, THE SMOKE HAS CLEARED, THE DANGER IS OVER, AND WITH EVACUATION ORDERS LIFTED, THE RESIDENTS ARE NOW RETURNING TO SEE IF THEY STILL HAVE HOMES. KIM BRUNHUBER WAS THERE.>>MY NEIGHBOUR’S HOUSE, COMPLETELY BURNED DOWN.>>Reporter: HE IS AGHAST AT THE DESTRUCTION THAT HE’S SEEING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PERSON.>>WE WAKE UP AT 2:00 IN THE MORNING AND I SMELLED SMOKE AND WE DECIDED TO RUN OUT RIGHT AWAY AND TAKE THE KIDS.>>Reporter: SEVERAL HOMES ON HIS STREET IN THE LOS ANGELES SUBURB OF BRENTWOOD BURNED DOWN MONDAY. AND JUST LIKE THIS CALIFORNIAN WITH THE DOORBELL CAMERA, HE WAS ABLE TO WATCH AS THE FLAMES GOT CLOSER AND THE FIREFIGHTERS WORKED TO SAVE HIS HOME. IT MUST HAVE BEEN A SURREAL EXPERIENCE TO SEE THIS HAPPENING IN REAL-TIME FROM YOUR DOOR?>>YEAH, IT’S A SURREAL EXPERIENCE. IT’S A SCARY EXPERIENCE. AND I DON’T WISH ANYBODY TO GO THROUGH IT. AND MY NEIGHBOURS…>>Reporter: HE WAS ALLOWED TO GO HOME BUT OTHERS WERE TOLD TO GET OUT. BEFORE DAWN TWO MORE FAST-MOVING WILDFIRES EXPLODED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. IN SAN BERNARDINO, THIS HOME IS NOW JUST A SMOKING PILE OF TWISTED METAL AND ASH.>>IT’S DEVASTATING. A FIREPLACE WHERE WE HAD OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS AND A THANKSGIVING AND IT SUCKS, MAN.>>Reporter: THERE IS SOME WELCOME NEWS. FORECASTERS SAY THAT THE FEROCIOUS WINDS WHICH HAVE SPREAD FIRES ACROSS THE STATE SEEM TO HAVE PEAKED BUT THEY WARN THAT EXTREME FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO LAST HERE IN PARTS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA UNTIL TOMORROW. IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA’S WINE COUNTRY THE WINDS HAVE ALREADY DIED DOWN. THE MASSIVE KINCAIDE FIRE IS 60% CONTAINED.>>THERE IS STILL A RISK FOR THE FIRE TO SPREAD, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS FOR THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS THE FIRE HAS NOT GOTTEN SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER.>>Reporter: MOST MANDATORY EVACUATIONS HAVE NOW BEEN LIFTED.>>THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY HOUSE AND MY NEIGHBOUR’S HOUSE.>>Reporter: BACK IN BRENTWOOD, DOBROWOLSKI IS MARCHING UP AND DOWN HIS STREET PAST THE STILL SMOKING HOMES OF HIS NEIGHBOURS AND SHAKING THE HAND OF EVERY FIREFIGHTER HE MEETS. HE KNOWS HOW LUCKY HE IS. HE CAN SEE FOR HIMSELF HIMSELF. KIM BRUNHUBER, CBC NEWS, LOS ANGELES.>>Adrienne: IN QUÉBEC THIS HALLOWEEN GOT A LOT OF CONFUSION TOO. AS SARAH LEAVITT EXPLAINS, A MOVE TO POSTPONE THE HOLIDAY HAS SOME PARENTS SCRATCHING THEIR HEADS AND SOME KIDS CASHING IN.>>I LOVE YOUR COSTUME.>>Reporter: THE WEATHER WASN’T PERFECT BUT THESE KIDS BRAVEED IT ANYWAY FOR HALLOWEEN HALLOWEEN.>>EXTREMELY HAPPY BECAUSE I LOVE CANDY AND I LOVE GOING TRICK-OR-TREATING.>>Reporter: THEY WENT OUT DESPITE A MOVE FROM THE QUÉBEC MAYORS. WHEN THE HEAVY WINDS WERE IN THE FORECAST THEY TRIED TO POSTPONE HALLOWEEN UNTIL TOMORROW. CUE THE CONTROVERSY.>>IT’S HALLOWEEN AND WHY WAIT AN EXTRA DAY. I REMEMBER AS A CHILD IN SNOW AND RAIN WE WENT OUT. NOTHING BOTHERED US.>>Reporter: TONIGHT THERE WERE MOMENTS OF HEAVY RAIN BUT –>>TOMORROW, ARGUABLY IT MAY BE WORSE THAN TODAY IN QUÉBEC.>>AND MONTRÉAL IS KNOWN TO HAVE UNPREDICTABLE WEATHER. AND THEY HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO BE GRITTY.>>Reporter: MONTRÉAL’S MAYOR DEFENDED HER DECISION TODAY AND TWEETING “HALLOWEEN DAY IS A SITUATION OF DAMNED IF YOU DO, DAMNED IF YOU DON’T.” THE LAST-MINUTE CHANGE LED TO UNCERTAINTY FOR PARENTS. AFTER A CALL OUT ON FACEBOOK ONE MOM CREATED A MAP FOR HEAR NEIGHBOURHOOD.>>WHERE CANDY IS AVAILABLE TONIGHT AND WHERE IT IS AVAILABLE TOMORROW.>>Reporter: IN SOME HOUSES HALLOWEEN ISN’T POSTPONED, IT’S EXTENDED.>>WE WOULD DEFINITELY NEVER TURN AWAY A KID AND, FRANKLY, IF WE HAVE LEFTOVER CANDY WE’LL DO IT AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT IF THERE’S OTHER KIDS.>>Reporter: ALL OF THIS CONFUSION LED SOME KIDS TO SEE AN OPPORTUNITY. SO WHO’S GOING TRICK-OR-TREATING TONIGHT?>>ME.>>Reporter: WHO IS GOING TRICK-OR-TREATING TOMORROW?>>ME.>>Reporter: AND WHO IS DOING BOTH?>>I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S A GOOD IDEA OR A BAD IDEA. THE GOOD IDEA IS THAT WE GET DOUBLE THE CANDY THAN WE USUALLY GET. AND THEN THE BAD THING IS THAT YOU’RE TAKING AWAY FROM THE REAL NIGHT OF HALLOWEEN.>>Reporter: FOR THESE KIDS, NOT EVEN THE MAYOR’S WARNING CAN STOP THEM FROM DRESSING UP AND SNAGGING ALL OF THAT FREE CANDY. SARAH LEAVITT, CBC NEWS, MONTRÉAL.>>Adrienne: MORE NEWS AHEAD TONIGHT, INCLUDING THE PUSH TO NEVER ROLL BACK THE CLOCK AGAIN IN B.C. AS THE PROVINCE TAKES A STEP TOWARDS A PERMANENT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. WHAT HEALTH EXPERTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THAT IDEA.>>>LATER, A “MARKETPLACE” INVESTIGATION PUTS BRAND-NAME SNEAKERS TO THE TEST. DOES A HIGHER PRICE ACTUALLY MEAN HIGHER PERFORMANCE?>>Ian: AND A NEW VIDEO WITH A MESSAGE FROM ALEX TREBEK. WHAT HE NOW SAYS ABOUT HIS PANCREATIC CANCER AND THE SYMPTOMS THAT HE MAY HA>>Adrienne: WELCOME BACK. SO DON’T FORGET THAT THIS WEEKEND THE MAJORITY OF CANADIANS WILL BE SETTING THEIR CLOCKS BACK WHEN DAYLIGHT SAVING COMES TO AN END, BUT B.C. IS MOVING FORWARD WITH THE PLAN TO END THE SEMI-ANNUAL RITUAL. NOW IT’S NOT A DONE DEAL YET, BUT TODAY THE PROVINCE INTRODUCED LEGISLATION THAT WOULD ALLOW IT TO STAY WITH ONE TIME ZONE ALL YEAR LONG. GREG RASMUSSEN WEIGHS THE PROS AND THE CONS.>>Reporter: THE SUN IS NOT QUITE UP YET ON THIS B.C. FARM BUT WORK IS UNDERWAY.>>THEY’RE HUNGRY THIS MORNING.>>Reporter: THE CATTLE DON’T CARE WHAT THE CLOCK SAYS, BUT FOR THE WORKERS THE TIME CHANGE CAN BE IRRITATING.>>BECAUSE IT ALWAYS MESSES PEOPLE’S LIVES UP. WE DON’T WANT TO GO ONE HOUR BACK, ONE HOUR AHEAD.>>Reporter: THE FARM ASSOCIATION IS ONE OF THE MANY B.C. GROUPS IN FAVOUR OF ENDING THE TWICE YEARLY RITUAL. HE SAYS THERE’S NO REAL POINT ANYMORE TO CHANGING THE CLOCKS WHICH GOES BACK TO A WORLD WAR I EFFORT TO SAVE ENERGY.>>I HOPE THAT MAYBE NEXT SPRING IT GOES BACK TO DAYLIGHT SAVINGS AND THEN THAT’S IT.>>TODAY IS A VERY GOOD DAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE TIRED OF CHANGING THEIR CLOCKS.>>Reporter: A RECENT SURVEY CARRIED OUT BY THE B.C. GOVERNMENT SHOWED THAT 93% OF RESPONDENTS WANT TO DO AWAY WITH SPRINGING AHEAD AND FALLING BACK.>>THE CONSULTATION MADE IT FAIRLY CLEAR — MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME WILL GIVE THEM MORE LIGHT DURING THEIR WORKING DAY AND THAT’S THE DIRECTION THAT WE’RE GOING TO GO IN.>>Reporter: ANOTHER BIG REASON FOR THIS? CALIFORNIA AND OTHER PACIFIC COAST STATES ARE CONSIDERING SIMILAR MEASURES. AND B.C. DOESN’T WANT TO BE LEFT OUT OF SYNC.>>I THINK THAT THIS TIME SHIFT IS DEFINITELY A HEALTH ISSUE.>>Reporter: IT HAS LINKS TO SLEEP DISORDERS AND DEPRESSION, BUT PERMANENT DAYLIGHT SAVING COULD CAUSE A DIFFERENT SET OF HEALTH PROBLEMS CAUSED BY A LACK OF MORNING SUNLIGHT.>>THE SUN WILL NOT RISE ON DECEMBER 21st UNTIL 9:00 a.m.. THAT’S VERY LATE IN THE DAY FOR A SUNRISE. SO EVERYBODY WILL BE GETTING UP IN THE DARK TO GO TO WORK, TO GO TO SCHOOL, WHATEVER.>>Reporter: B.C. SAYS THAT IT WILL CONSIDER THE IMPACT ON HUMAN HEALTH AND THE ECONOMY BEFORE MAKING THE FINAL SWITCH. WITH THE OTHER PROVINCES WATCHING CLOSELY. GREG RASMUSSEN, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Adrienne: ALL RIGHT. NOW LET’S GO TO OUR NATIONAL NEWSROOM IN VANCOUVER WHERE IAN IS FOLLOWING SEVERAL STORIES FROM ACROSS CANADA TONIGHT.>>Ian: ADRIENNE, LET’S BEGIN IN ALBERTA WHERE ONE OF THE OLDEST ENERGY COMPANIES IS MOVING SOUTH AND CHANGING ITS NAME. CALGARY-BASED EnCANA WILL BECOME OVINTIV HEADQUARTERED OUT OF THE UNITED STATES. ITS C.E.O. SAYS THAT THE MOVE WON’T AFFECT STAFF OR SPENDING PLANS IN CANADA, BUT IT WILL EXPOSE THE STOCK TO BIGGER INVESTOR POOLS. THE ALBERTA’S ENERGY MINISTER IS BLAMING PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU.>>A SIGNAL THAT HE SENT ON THE IMPORTANCE OF OIL AND GAS TO CANADA HAS BEEN ABYSMAL AND IT’S VERY DIFFICULT FOR INVESTORS TO WANT TO HAVE CONFIDENCE IN CANADA.>>Ian: EnCANA’S C.E.O. SAYS THAT THE MOVE HAS NOTHING DO WITH POLITICS.>>>SASKATCHEWAN’S HIGHEST COURT HAS DENIED AN APPEAL FROM THE YOUNG MAN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE 2016 SHOOTING RAMPAGE IN LA LOCHE. THE SHOOTER, 17 AT THE TIME, KILLED FOUR PEOPLE, INJURED SEVEN OTHERS IN A REMOTE SASKATCHEWAN COMMUNITY. HE PLEADED GUILTY AND HE WAS SENTENCED AS AN ADULT TO LIFE IN PRISON WITH NO PAROLE FOR 10 YEARS. HE APPEALED, ARGUING THAT HE SHOULD BE SENTENCED AS A YOUTH BUT THAT WAS DENIED TODAY. HIS LAWYERS ARE NOW CONSIDERING WHETHER TO APPEAL TO THE SUPREME COURT.>>>AND A NEW CANDID MESSAGE TONIGHT FROM “JEOPARDY!” HOST ALEX TREBEK.>>I WISH I HAD KNOWN SOONER THAT THE PERSISTENT STOMACH PAIN THAT I EXPERIENCED PRIOR TO MY DIAGNOSIS WAS A SYMPTOM OF PANCREATIC CANCER.>>Ian: THE MESSAGE IS PART OF A MINUTE-LONG PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT TREBEK RELEASED WITH THE WORLD PANCREATIC CANCER ASSOCIATION. THE 79-YEAR-OLD HOPES TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF THE DISEASE. THIS MONTH A LONG-TIME GAME SHOW HOST REVEALED THAT HE’D BEGUN HIS SECOND ROUND OF CHEMOTHERAPY.>>>A BIG MERGER IN THE AUTOMOTIVE WORLD. WE’LL HAVE DETAILS AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL STORIES IN 20 MINUTES.>>Adrienne: ALL RIGHT, TIME FOR A QUICK BREAK. UP NEXT “AT ISSUE” IS HERE. PETER MacKAY DID NOT MINCE WORDS EARLIER THIS WEEK. SO SHOULD ANDREW SCHEER BE WORRIED ABOUT HIS JOB? AND ROSIE IS NEXT WITH ANDREW, CHANTAL AND ALTHIA.>>>LATER WE CATCH UP WITH HUMBOLDT BUS CRASH SURVIVOR RYAN STRASCHNITZKI AS HE TRAVELS TO THAILAND (*)>>Rosemary: FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE LAST WEEK’S ELECTION, IT WAS ONLY A WEEK AGO, THE PARTIES ARE COMING TOGETHER FOR SOME POSTMORTEMS AND CAUCUS MEETINGS, ASKING WHAT WENT WRONG, WHAT WORKED AND STRATEGIZING FOR THE WEEKS AHEAD. HOW ARE THEY HANDLING THE CRITICISM AND WHO ARE THEY TURNING TO FOR ADVICE? IT’S THURSDAY AND IT’S “AT ISSUE.” CHANTAL HEBERT IS IN MONTREAL AND ANDREW COYNE IN TORONTO AND ALTHIA RAJ IS ALSO HERE IN OTTAWA TONIGHT. OKAY, I WANT TO START WITH THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY BECAUSE IT SEEMED SORT OF THE HOTTEST AT THE MOMENT, IF I CAN USE THAT TURN OF PHRASE. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME ANONYMOUS CALLS FOR ANDREW SCHEER TO LEAVE, A COUPLE PUBLIC ONES. AND THEN THIS COMMENT YESTERDAY BY THE FORMER CABINET MINISTER, FORMER LEADERSHIP CONTENDER, ALTHOUGH NOT IN THE LAST RACE, PETER MacKAY. AND HE SAID THIS. TAKE A LISTEN…>>TO USE A GOOD CANADIAN ANALOGY — IT’S LIKE HAVING A BREAKAWAY ON AN OPEN NET AND MISSING THE NET. PEOPLE DID NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT WOMEN’S REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS. THEY DIDN’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT REVISITING THE ISSUE OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE. AND YET THAT WAS THRUST ON TO THE AGENDA. AND HUNG AROUND ANDREW SCHEER’S NICK LIKE A STINKING ALBATROSS.>>Rosemary: SO AROUND MIDNIGHT LAST NIGHT, MacKAY THEN WENT ON TO TWEET THIS — HE SAID HE SUPPORTS ANDREW SCHEER, HE WORKED HARD TO HELP HIM CAMPAIGN AND REPORTS IN OUR ORGANIZING ARE FALSE. SO THAT’S THE WAY THAT HE TRIED TO PUT THE TOOTHPASTE BACK IN THE TUBE THERE. ANDREW — ANDREW COYNE, I’LL START WITH YOU. I MEAN, YOU SHOULD NEVER ACTUALLY WIELD THE KNIFE IF YOU ARE TRYING TO GET THE JOB, I GUESS, BUT SHOULD ANDREW SCHEER BE WORRIED ABOUT THIS BUZZ THAT WE ARE HEARING AND IN THE CASE OF PETER MacKAY A VERY PUBLIC ONE?>>YEAH, I MEAN, IT’S NOT YET REACHED THE STAGE WHERE SOMEBODY SAYS THAT HE’S ENTITLED TO MAKE HIS OWN DECISION. BUT WE’RE ALSO HEARING — I THINK WE’RE GETTING PAST THE STAGE THAT HE NEEDS BETTER ADVISORS. IT’S THAT KIND OF LOW RUMBLING AND YOU START SEEING RIDING EXECUTIVES, YOU START SEEING THE ODD M.P. OR THE FORMER M.P. STARTING TO DO THE RUNNING ON IT. AND HAVING PETER MacKAY OUT THERE, I MEAN, I SUPPOSE THAT HE WASN’T AWARE THAT THIS WOULD BE REPORTED BACK IN CANADA. [laughter] BUT HE HAD TO HAVE BEEN. SO THIS IS PRETTY — ACTUALLY PRETTY HIGH LEVEL RUMBLING WHEN YOU’VE GOT PETER MacKAY OUT THERE. I AGREE WITH YOU THAT THERE’S RISKS FOR HIM IN BEING SEEN TO DO THIS. ON THE OTHER HAND, MULRONEY USED TO PUT THE KNIFE INTO JOE CLARK AND HE WOUND UP TAKING THE CROWN. [laughter] WITH MUCH OF THE SAME SONG AND DANCE BUT I HAVE NOTHING BUT SUPPORT FOR MR. CLARK AND THEN HE’D BE BRIEFING REPORTERS TO THE CONTRARY.>>Rosemary: SO WHAT SHOULD ANDREW SCHEER BE DOING RIGHT NOW, CHANTAL?>>REFLECTING UPON HIS FUTURE AND WHETHER HE CAN KEEP THAT CAUCUS BUT ALSO THAT PARTY IN LINE WITH THE REASONABLE CHANCE OF DOING BETTER IN THE NEXT ELECTION. THERE IS — THERE ARE THOSE VOICES — SOME OF THEM PUBLIC — BUT THERE ARE NOT VERY MANY VOICES STANDING UP FOR ANDREW SCHEER, FRANKLY, BEYOND THE OBLIGATORY, OH, I STAND BY HIM. AND I THINK THAT IT HAS BECOME ABUNDANTLY CLEAR OVER THE PAST WEEK AND A HALF THAT IF MR. SCHEER WAS TO SAY THAT HE HAS DECIDED TO RESIGN, A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD SAY THAT HE’S WORKED VERY HARD BUT THOSE TEARS THEY WOULD HAVE WOULD BE CROCODILE TEARS.>>Rosemary: ALTHIA, WHAT ARE YOU HEARING, FROM CROCODILE TEARS OR OTHERWISE?>>YEAH, I THINK WHAT IS REALLY INTERESTING IS THAT M.P.s WHO HAVE BEEN RE-ELECTED ARE THEMSELVES SAYING BEHIND THE SCENES THEY THINK THAT MR. SCHEER SHOULD GO. AND EVEN MUSING ALOUD ABOUT WHO COULD REPLACE HIM AND WHO WOULD BE INTERESTING. AND ALMOST LIKE A FANTASY FOOTBALL AND TEAM POTENTIAL LEADER WOULD BE. SO THAT — I THINK IF MR. SCHEER REALLY AGGRESSIVELY WANTS TO HANG ON TO HIS JOB, HE NEEDS TO REACH BEYOND THE SORT OF CORE INNER CIRCLE AND SOME OF THE MORE VETERAN VOICES THAT HE ASSEMBLED IN OTTAWA THIS WEEK AND REALLY TRY TO GET THAT CAUCUS UNDER CONTROL.>>Rosemary: I SHOULD POINT OUT THAT NO ONE IS BRAVE ENOUGH TO SAY THESE THINGS WITH THEIR NAME ATTACHED, OR VERY FEW PEOPLE, VERY FEW PEOPLE.>>FOR NOW. FOR A WEEK AND A HALF, AND WE’RE HEARING IT. IF YOU LOOK AT THE BODY LANGUAGE OF THAT QUÉBEC CAUCUS, I DIDN’T GET A SENSE THAT THERE WAS ANYONE IN THERE THAT WAS KIND OF WILLING TO GO PUBLIC AND SAYING THAT WE NEED ANDREW SCHEER TO STAY.>>AND HE HASN’T PUBLICLY SAID I THINK WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE LIKED HIM TO SAY, ESPECIALLY THE QUÉBEC CANDIDATES AND OTHER CANDIDATES IN ONTARIO, FOR EXAMPLE. LIKE A MEA CULPA, LIKE, I’M REALLY SORRY, I SHOULD HAVE HANDLED THE SAME-SEX ISSUE DIFFERENTLY AND THE ABORTION ISSUE DIFFERENTLY. WE DIDN’T HEAR THAT FROM HIM IN HIS EXIT INTERVIEWS COMING OUT OF THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN LAST WEEK.>>ONE OF THE DECISIONS FOR THAT CAUCUS TO MAKE IS WHETHER IT WANTS TO HAVE THE PROVISIONS OF THE REFORM ACT APPLIED TO IT. LAST TIME AROUND –>>Rosemary: MICHAEL CHONG’S BILL?>>THAT’S RIGHT. AND THEY HAD AGREED TO ACCEPT BUT IF THE MAJORITY OF THE CAUCUS WERE TO ADOPT TO HAVE THE LEADERSHIP REVIEW ALL THE PARTY WOULD HAVE LEFT TO DO IS TO CHOOSE A NEW LEADER. I THINK THAT’S RELEVANT BECAUSE I THINK THAT THE PARTY HAS A REAL CHOICE TO MAKE ABOUT WHETHER THEY WANT TO STUMBLE THROUGH THE NEXT SIX MONTHS WITH THIS KIND OF SUSTAINED BLOODLETTING WHERE THEY CAN’T FOCUS THEIR ENERGIES ON THE GOVERNMENT AND THEY’RE JUST FOCUSING ON INWARD FIGHTING. OR WHETHER THEY WANT TO GET THIS OVER WITH QUICKLY.>>REMEMBER JOHN TURNER WHO FACED A CAUCUS REBELLION AND PEOPLE SIGNED A LETTER, THE CAUCUS MEMBERS, TO ASK HIM TO QUIT? AND THEN NONE OF THEM WOULD OWN UP OR ALMOST NONE OF THEM WOULD OWN UP TO THEIR SIGNATURE. [laughter]>>Rosemary: LET’S TURN TO THE N.D.P. AND THAT CAUCUS MET IN OTTAWA THIS WEEK AS WELL AND THERE WERE DEFEATED M.P.s ALSO THERE. AND THERE SEEMED TO BE MORE OF A RECOGNITION THAT PERHAPS THEY HAD NOT WON THE ELECTION AS OPPOSED TO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN HEARING FOR THE PAST WEEK. HERE’S WHAT SOME HAD TO SAY ABOUT JAGMEET SINGH…>>I THINK THAT THE CAUCUS IS SOLID BEHIND HIM HE WAS EXEMPLARY AS A CAMPAIGNER.>>HE WAS NOT PRESENT ENOUGH BEFORE THE CAMPAIGN AND HE WAS WANT SEEN IN QUÉBEC EXCEPT FOR BY-ELECTIONS.>>I WANTED HIM TO COME TO QUÉBEC AS SOON AS AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO BE ALONE THERE.>>I THINK THAT MAYBE WE CAUGHT FIRE A LITTLE TOO LATE FOR PEOPLE TO KNOW AND TO SEE WHAT WE WERE REPRESENTING.>>Rosemary: SO, I MEAN, THERE’S SOME SUPPORT, CERTAINLY, NO ONE IS CALLING FOR HIM TO LEAVE, ALTHIA, BUT THERE’S RECOGNITION –>>SOME PEOPLE ARE.>>Rosemary: ALL RIGHT, YOU GO AHEAD THEN.>>CARL BELANGER WHO FOR EXAMPLE WAS LAYTON’S PRESS SECRETARY, AND THEN THE PRINCIPAL SECRETARY AND THEN THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF THE PARTY, PENNED A COLUMN EARLIER — LAST WEEK, I GUESS IT WOULD BE — SAYING THAT JAGMEET SINGH SHOULD RESIGN. AND THE FACT THAT IF THE BAR THAT WAS SET FOR THOMAS MULCAIR TO STEP DOWN IS BEING APPLIED TO MR. SINGH, HE SHOULD STEP DOWN. AND ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN QUÉBEC WHERE THE PARTY LOST ALL OF ITS SEATS BUT ONE, THAT MR. SINGH SHOULD BE SHOWN THE DOOR. I DON’T GET THAT IS A GENERAL SENSE HELD AT ALL IN THE PARTY, BUT THE QUESTION ABOUT QUÉBEC REMAINS A VERY IMPORTANT ONE. AND TODAY WE SAW MELISSA BRUNO, WHO WAS MR. SINGH’S ASSISTANT AT QUEEN’S PARK WHO WAS THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR ANNOUNCE THAT SHE IS LEAVING.>>IT WAS IN A WAY THE WORST POSSIBLE RESULT FOR THE N.D.P. IN THAT IT WASN’T SUCH A DISASTER THEY COULD THEN SWEEP OUT THE LEADER AND START AFRESH YET THEY DIDN’T DO WELL AT ALL. COMPARED TO WHERE THEY WERE LAST TIME. YOU KNOW, MR. SINGH FOR MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ELECTION WAS STUMBLING AROUND FROM ONE MISTAKE AND ONE ACCIDENT TO THE NEXT AND WAS A DEEPLY UNIMPRESSIVE LEADER AND HE HAD A FEW GOOD DAYS IN THE CAMPAIGN BASICALLY WHERE PEOPLE TOOK A LOOK AND LIKED THE CUT OF HIS JIB. BUT THE QUESTION GOING FORWARD IS WHICH IS THE JAGMEET SINGH THAT PEOPLE WILL SEE? ARE THEY GOING TO SEE THE GUY THEY LIKED DURING THE CAMPAIGN OR THE GUY THEY THOUGHT THAT DIDN’T REALLY KNOW HIS BRIEFS VERY WELL PRIOR TO THE ELECTION? IF IT’S THE LATTER, THEN THEY’RE STUCK WITH A LEADER THAT CAN’T REALLY LIGHT A FIRE UNDER VOTERS AND CAN’T ADVANCE FOR THEM.>>Rosemary: CHANTAL?>>HE DOESN’T HAVE A LOT OF ROOM FOR MORE ACCIDENTS, NOT IN A MINORITY GOVERNMENT, WHERE IF YOU OVERPLAY YOUR HAND YOU CAN EITHER EMBARRASS YOURSELF OR END UP IN A VERY BAD PLACE AND IN THE CASE OF THE N.D.P. IT’S GOING TO BE A BALANCING ACT TO LOOK LIKE IT’S HAVING INFLUENCE IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS WHILE AVOIDING BEING PUSHED AGAINST THE WALL BY THE LIBERALS. SAYING THAT YOU REALLY WANT AN ELECTION, GUYS? WHICH THEY CAN’T HAVE FOR THE RECORD. AND I DO THINK THAT MR. SINGH IS GOING TO HAVE TO THINK ABOUT LEADERSHIP REVIEW VOTES BECAUSE HE MAY LOSE SUPPORT FROM QUÉBEC, SUPPORT FROM SASKATCHEWAN. NOT SURE THAT TORONTO NEW DEMOCRATS ARE EXCITED OVER NOT BEING ON THE MAP. SO LOTS TO THINK ABOUT. AND THAT SHAKEUP, POSSIBLY, TO BRING SOME EXPERIENCED HANDS WITH A MINORITY RULE.>>Rosemary: OKAY, I’VE GOT LIKE TWO MINUTES AND I WANT TO DO A QUICK ROUND ON THE LIBERALS. JUST ON THE FACT THAT WE NOW KNOW TWO PEOPLE HELPING THEM, ANNE McLELLAN AND THE AMBASSADOR TO FRANCE, ISABELLE HUDON. AND WE KNOW THAT THEY’RE TAKING THEIR TIME. WHICH IS SOMETHING THEY DIDN’T DO THE LAST TIME. GIVING THEMSELVES TIME TO FORM A CABINET AND FIGURE OUT WHAT IS NEXT. WHAT SHOULD WE TAKE FROM THAT BEING ALTHIA?>>IT’S GOOD THAT THEY’RE TAKING THEIR TIME AND THEY OBVIOUSLY HAVE NEW PARLIAMENTS TO DEAL WITH, ALBERTA AND SASKATCHEWAN, YOU KNOW, HOW TO RESPOND TO WHAT VOTERS HAVE TOLD THEM IN THOSE PROVINCES. AND I’M PERPLEXED AT THE CHOICE OF ANNE McLELLAN AND ISABELLE HUDON, TO BE FRANK. I UNDERSTAND AMBASSADOR HAS BUSINESS TIES AND ANNE McLELLAN IS THE ONLY LIBERAL PEOPLE KNOW IN ALBERTA. AND IT’S INTERESTING TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE AROUND THAT GROUP. I HEAR THAT TONY DEAN, A SENATOR DEAN HAS BEEN SERVING AS AN ADVISOR, BUT HE DOESN’T SEEM TO WANT TO SAY THAT PUBLICLY. OOPS. [laughter] SO, I DON’T KNOW. THE TEAM THAT IS LEFT IS A PRETTY RISK ADVERSE TEAM. AND THESE CHOICES OF ADVISORS ARE RISK ADVERSE CHOICES, SO WHAT DOES THAT TELL US ABOUT WHERE THE GOVERNMENT’S THINKING IS. I THINK THAT IS INTERESTING.>>Rosemary: CHANTAL?>>FOR ALL OF THE QUALITIES OF THE AMBASSADOR, IF YOU ASKED AROUND AND THE QUÉBEC POLITICAL NETWORKS, AND PEOPLE WOULD BE PUZZLED WHAT SHE BRINGS TO THE TABLE THAT IS SO NEEDED IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. SO WHERE THIS GOES FROM THERE, I THOUGHT THAT THEY WERE TAKING THEIR TIME, FRANKLY, AND THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING. SO THEY SPEND AS LITTLE TIME AND POSSIBLY NO TIME AT ALL SITTING IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS BEFORE CHRISTMAS.>>Rosemary: ANDREW, LAST WORD TO YOU.>>I THINK THAT PRECISELY THAT IS THE REASON WHY THEY SHOULD BE CALLING BACK THE HOUSE. THIS IS A GOVERNMENT WITH A VERY WEAKENED MANDATE. I THINK THAT IT HAS AN OBLIGATION TO TEST THE CONFIDENCE OF THE HOUSE TO SHOW, IN FACT, IT HAS THE SUPPORT OF THE HOUSE. I THINK THAT IT HAS AN OBLIGATION TO DEAL WITH SOME OF THE DIVISIONS AND RESENTMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN EXPOSED BY THIS ELECTION AND NOT JUST LET THEM SIMMER FOR MONTHS AND WEEKS ON END. THAT BEING SAID, I HOPE THEY’VE ALSO LEARNED THE LESSONS, WHEN THEY PUT TOGETHER THEIR CABINET THEY PUT TOGETHER A LOT OF VERY UNINEXPERIENCED PEOPLE — POLITICALLY INEXPERIENCED PEOPLE IN THE CABINET. AND POSSIBLY OF THE WAY THAT THE GOVERNMENT RUNS IN CANADA NOWADAYS, EVERYTHING WAS RUN THROUGH THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE. IT WAS NOTORIOUSLY CENTRALIZED AND POSSIBLY MORE THAN STEPHEN HARPER’S. AND THAT IS NOT GOING TO WORK AS WELL IN THIS KIND OF ATMOSPHERE. THEY NEED EXPERIENCED HOUSES — HANDS AROUND AND THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO TRUST PEOPLE, LIKE THEIR HOUSE LEADER, WHOEVER THEY APPOINT AS THAT, AND THEY NEED TO RECOGNIZE THEY’RE NOT IN A SITUATION NOW WHERE THEY CAN RAM THINGS THROUGH. THEY’LL HAVE TO NEGOTIATE ON EVERYTHING THEY PUT THROUGH AND THAT’S NOT IN THIS GROUP’S D.N.A. THEY’RE GOING TO REALLY NEED TO REALLY CHANGE THE WAY THEY APPROACH GOVERNING.>>Rosemary: OKAY, GUYS, I’LL LEAVE IT THERE. THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE IT.

THE WADES SEEM TO BE ONSIDE.>>IF IT COMES OUT THAT A $240 SHOE IS A LOT BETTER THAN $160 SHOE, I’M NOT GOING TO DEPRIVE MY KIDS OF THAT ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCE.>>Reporter: ASHA TOMLINSON, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Adrienne: AND, OF COURSE, TO FIND OUT HOW THE OTHER SHOES FARED, WATCH “MARKETPLACE” TOMORROW ON CBC TELEVISION OR STREAM IT AT ANY TIME ON CBC GEM.>>>AHEAD TONIGHT, NOTHING SPOOKY WITH THIS COSTUME, NOT ONLY CAN THIS 7-YEAR-OLD DRESS UP LIKE HIS HERO BUT HE’S FOLLOWING IN HIS FOOTSTEPS TOO.
