WHY WOULD ANYONE KILL CONSTABLE DAVIDSON?>>Reporter: DEFENCE IS ALSO CLAIMING CERTAIN WITNESSES WEREN’T RELIABLE AND HAD BEEN TAINTED, ALSO QUESTIONING WHY NONE OF DAVIDSON’S BLOOD WAS ACTUALLY FOUND ON ARF MAN.

FINALLY I JUST THOUGHT WELL, I’LL TREE TREAT IT LIKE A DOG. GET DOWN. GET BACK. AND IT DID. IT BACKED UP AWAY FROM ME.

NOW YOU’VE GOT TO PRICE IT. YOU’VE GOT TO MARKET IT.>>Reporter: FOR THOSE WHO BOUGHT RECENTLY, IT CAN BE PAINFUL. THIS TOWN HOUSE IN VANCOUVER SOLD IN 2016 FOR $1.8 MILLION. IT JUST TRADED HANDS FOR 200,000 LESS. IN 2017, IT COST MORE THAN $3.4 MILLION TO BUY THIS HOUSE. IT JUST SOLD FOR A $1.1 MILLION LOSS. AT THE SAME TIME, NEW CONSTRUCTION IS ADDING TO THE SUPPLY.>>WE DO HAVE A RECORD NUMBER OF UNITS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.>>Reporter: COMBINED WITH A WEAKER MARKET, THAT INCREASE IN CHOICE WILL ADD TO THE DOWNWARD PRESSURE.>>DO EXPECT HOUSE PRICES TO MOVE ON AVERAGE 7% LOWER FOR 2019 IN METRO VANCOUVER.

AS THE CBC’S STEVEN D’SOUZA REPORTS, THAT DEATH HELPED SPARK THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT AND ROCKED THE UNITED STATES.>>Reporter: IT’S BEEN FIVE YEARS SINCE ERIC GARNER DIED AT THE HANDS EVERY NEW YORK CITY POLICE DURING AN ARREST AND NOW AN INTERIM NEW YORK CITY POLICE JUDGE IS RECOMMENDING THAT THE OFFICER WHO PUT GARNER IN A CHOKE HOLD, DANIEL PANTALEO, BE FIRED FOR HIS ACTIONS. GARNER’S FINAL WORDS “I CAN’T BREATHE” REALLY IGNITED THE BLACK LIVES MATTERS MOVEMENT HERE IN NEW YORK CITY AND BECAME A RALLYING CRY FOR PROTESTORS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHO ARE UPSET WITH POLICE BRUTALITY. THIS RECOMMENDATION COMES AFTER AN INTERIM NYPD HEARING AND IS JUST THAT, A RECOMMENDATION. THE FINAL DECISION NOW RESTS WITH THE NEW YORK CITY POLICE COMMISSIONER JAMES O’NEILL. THE NYPD ANNOUNCE PANTALEO HAS BEEN SUSPENDED WHILE HIS LAWYERS APPEAL THIS RECOMMENDATION. AND SO A DECISION ON HIS POTENTIAL FIRING WILL COME IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. NOW NEW YORK CITY’S MAYOR, BILL DE BLASIO, HAS FACED A LOT OF CRITICISM FOR HIS HANDLING OF THE SITUATION. HE SPOKE EARLIER AND DID NOT ADDRESS THE RECOMMENDATION DIRECTLY BUT DID SAY THAT HE’S HAPPY THAT A FAIR AND IMPARTIAL HEARING TOOK PLACE.>>IT’S THE FIRST TIME WE’VE SEEN A DECISION. I WANT TO REMIND EVERYONE, OVER FIVE YEARS, DISTRICT ATTORNEY DID NOT BRING INDICTMENT. THEREFORE THERE WAS NO TRIAL. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT DID NOT BRING INDICTMENT. THERE WAS THERE WAS NO TRIAL. FOR THE FIRST TIME, THERE WAS A TRIAL, A FAIR AND IMPARTIAL TRIAL AND A RESULT.>>Reporter: AS MAYOR MENTIONED IT WAS ONLY LAST MONTH THAT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CONCLUDED ITS FIVE-YEAR INVESTIGATION INTO THIS INCIDENT, DECIDING THAT THEY WERE NOT GOING TO LAY FEDERAL CHARGES AGAINST DANIEL PANTALEO SO THE BAU IS IN THE COURT OF THE N.Y.P.D.COMMISSIONER. HE HAS A DIFFICULT DECISION TO MAKE BECAUSE THE POLICE UNION BLASTED TODAY’S RECOMMENDATION SAYING THAT THE DECISION SENDS A MESSAGE TO EVERY COP THAT THEY ARE EXPENDABLE AND CANNOT EXPECT ANY SUPPORT FROM THE CITY THAT THEY PROTECT. NOW AS FOR GARNER’S FAMILY, THEY HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR FIVE YEARS TO GET SOME FORM OF ACCOUNTABILITY, AND TODAY ONE OF HIS DAUGHTERS SPOKE TO THE MEDIA. HERE’S WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY.>>THIS HAS BEEN A LONG BATTLE. FIVE YEARS TOO LONG. AND FINALLY SOMEBODY HAS SAID THAT THERE’S SOME INFORMATION THAT THIS COP HAS DONE SOMETHING WRONG. WE’VE WAITED FIVE YEARS. CCRB HAS MADE THE RECOMMENDATION. COMMISSIONER O’NEILL, FIRE PANTALEO. THAT’S ALL WE’RE ASKING.>>Reporter: THE FAMILY SAYS THEIR BATTLE IS FAR FROM OVER. THEY WANT TO SEE A FEDERAL LAW BANNING CHOKE HOLDS BY POLICE OFFICERS. THEY ALSO WANT TO SEE ACCOUNTABILITY FROM EVERY OFFICER WHO IS ON SCENE THE DAY THAT ERIC GARNER DIED. A DECISION IN OFFICER PANTALEO’S CASE IS EXPECTED LATER THIS MONTH. STEVEN D’SOUZA, CBC NEWS, NEW YORK. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Anita: OK. WE’RE STILL ABOUT A MONTH FROM THE OFFICIAL START OF THE FALL FEDERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN. BUT POLITICIANS ARE ALREADY WARMING UP. TODAY CONSERVATIVE LEADER ANDREW SCHEER WANTED TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT HE’S COMMITTED TO CANADIAN HEALTH CARE. THAT AS OLIVIA STEFANOVICH TELLS US, HIS OPPONENTS ARE COMPARING HIM TO ONE PREMIER IN PARTICULAR.>>AS THE ELECTION NEARS I KNOW THAT JUSTIN TRUDEAU WILL TRY TO SPREAD MISINFORMATION AND STOKE FEAR.>>Reporter: PUSHING BACK AGAINST WHAT COULD BE AN UGLY ELECTION CAMPAIGN, CONSERVATIVE LEADER ANDREW SCHEER IS TRYING TO GAIN THE UPPER HAND OVER JUSTIN TRUDEAU.>>WHILE HE FOCUSES ON A CAMPAIGN OF FEAR AND SMEAR, I WILL FOCUS ON MAKING SURE YOU HAVE THE SERVICES THAT YOU NEED.>>Reporter: SCHEER PLEDGES IN LETTERS TO ALL THE PREMIERS THAT, IF ELECTED, HE WOULD CONTINUE TO INCREASE HEALTH AND SOCIAL TRANSFER PAYMENTS BY AT LEAST 3% EVERY YEAR. FURTHER DETAILS STILL HAVE TO BE SPELLED OUT. BUT AS SOON AS THE CONSERVATIVE STRATEGY WAS ANNOUNCED, SCHEER RECEIVED A LETTER OF HIS OWN. FINANCE MINISTER BILL MORNEAU WRITES — UNDER THE LIBERALS, HEALTH CARE FUNDING WOULD IN FACT RISE BY 4.1% AND SAYS SCHEER’S 3% INCREASE AMOUNTS TO A $1.5 BILLION CUT. THEN MORNEAU DRAW AS COMPARISON TO ONTARIO PREMIER DOUG FORD, STATING — “YOU MAY WRITE LETTERS AND MAKE PROMISES NOW AND DURING THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN, BUT CANADIANS KNOW THAT YOU WILL MAKE PAINFUL CUTS.” AFTER MORNEAU’S LETTER, SCHEER RESPONDED ON TWITTER, ACCUSING THE LIBERALS OF LYING AND PROMISING TO MAINTAIN THE CURRENT FORMULA. REGARDLESS, THIS EXPERT WOULD LIKE TO SEE A BIGGER COMMITMENT.>>3% ONLY COVERS THE POPULATION GROWTH AND THE INFLATION, BUT IT DOESN’T CONTAIN THE GROWTH OF REAL SERVICES.>>Reporter: THE INTENT OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT WAS TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THE ONTARIO PREMIER. BUT THE LIBERALS ARE KEEPING THE COMPARISON FRONT AND CENTRE.>>DOUG FORD MADE THE SAME EMPTY PROMISES THEN TURNED AROUND AND CUT HEALTH CARE, PUBLIC HEALTH AND SO MUCH MORE.>>I THINK IT’S A PRODUCT OF THE LIBERAL CAMPAIGN NOT BEING ABLE TO LABEL ANDREW SCHEER.>>Reporter: MEANWHILE THE CONSERVATIVES ARE ATTACKING ON A DIFFERENT FRONT.>>I THINK FOR THE SCHEER CAMPAIGN THIS HAS TO BE A REFERENDUM ON THE PRIME MINISTER AND ON HIS RECORD.>>Reporter: BUT THAT’S NOT THE ONLY RECORD SCHEER WILL BE RUNNING AGAINST.

IN GENERAL WE HAVE A REALLY NICE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE THAT’S GOING TO BE COMING IN ALL THE WAY ACROSS FROM THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND THIS IS GOING TO BE KEEPING THINGS NICE AND STABLE AS WE GO AHEAD INTO THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE. OVER THE NEXT THREE DAYS OR SO WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE LOOKING AT REALLY NEG THAT’S GOING TO BE HAPPENING TOO MUCH IN TERMS OF PRECIPITATION BECAUSE THAT HIGH PRESSURE IS GOING TO BE KEEPING IT NICE AND CLEAR. AND IF IT’S POSSIBLE TO ADVANCE TO THE NEXT MAP I CAN DEFINITELY TELL YOU FOR THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE THE STORY REALLY IS GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT THE TEMPERATURES BECAUSE NO MATTER WHERE WE’RE GOING ACROSS SOUTHERN B.C. WE’RE LOOKING AT TEMPERATURES THAT ARE GOING TO BE WELL INTO THE LOW 20s IF NOT THE HIGH 30s AS WE GO THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND. LOOKING AT PROBABLY THE HOTSPOT IN THE WHOLE PROVINCE OF COURSE NATURALLY BEING IN THE SOUTHERN INTERIOR OF B.C. OSOYOOS ALMOST CERTAINLY GETTING CLOSER TO THE UPPER 30s BY THE TIME WE GET INTO MONDAY. AND AFTERWARDS WHEN WE’RE LOOKING AT A FIVE-DAY FORECAST HERE INTO VANCOUVER THE TREND OF NO CLOUDS REALLY IS GOING TO BE KEEPING GOING. SO AS I MENTIONED VERY IMPORTANT TO STAY HYDRATED THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND AND OBVIOUSLY WEARING THAT SUNSCREEN. IN GENERAL BACK HERE THE FESTIVITIES AS I SAID ARE PROBABLY PICKING UP AND THIS IS GOING TO BE CARRYING ON THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE WEEKEND. THERE’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF FUN STUFF. IT’S NOT JUST PEOPLE THAT ARE MAKING IT FUN BUT RESTAURANT OWNERS AS WELL. THEY’VE NEED TODAY SUPPLY A GOOD AMOUNT OF FOOD FOR ALL THE HUNGRY GUESTS COMING THIS WEEKEND. HERE’S WHAT ONE RESTAURANT OWNER IN PARTICULAR HAD TO SAY ABOUT WHAT HE’S EXPECTING THIS WEEKEND.>>IT’S A CRAZY TIME. EVERYBODY’S EXCITED. THE ANTICIPATION’S BUILDING ALREADY. YOU CAN SEE EVERYONE SETTING UP AROUND THE STREETS. THERE’S ALL KINDS OF PERFORMANCES. THERE’S BEER GARDENS. THERE’S A LOT OF SHOWS GOING ON. WE’RE JUST EXPECTING TO BE RUNNING OFF OUR FEET SERVING AS MUCH FOOD AS WE CAN.>>Brett: [ Chuckles ] AND OF COURSE SERVING UP A LOT OF FOOD IS A VERY IMPORTANT THING. GOT TO KEEP THAT ENERGY LEVEL UP BECAUSE THERE JUST SEEMS THERE’S SO MANY ACTIVITIES AND I HONESTLY THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A REALLY PERFECT WEEKEND FOR IT ALL IN ALL. I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO PARTICIPATING IN THE FESTIVITIES AND OF COURSE CBC IS GOING TO BE PARTICIPATING IN THE PRIDE FESTIVAL PARADE THAT IS TAKING PLACE THIS SUNDAY. I MYSELF WILL BE THERE. I’M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE HOW IT GOES DOWN.>>Anita: IT’S GOING TO BE A GOOD TIME. THANKS, BRETT. [ ♪♪♪ ] KICKS. THEY MAY BE TINY BUT THEIR DANGER IS GROWING AS THEY MOVE FROM COUNTRY TO CITY.

THE CBC’s CASSIDY CHISHOLM SPOKE WITH THE WOMAN WHO WAS JUST TRYING TO STAY COOL IN THE SUMMER HEAT.>>Reporter: WHEN 29-YEAR-OLD BECCA LANDON WATKINS WALKED TO THE BUS STOP WITH HER 5-YEAR-OLD SON SUNDAY EVENING SHE DIDN’T EXPECT HER OUTFIT WOULD CAUSE ANY TROUBLE. BUT AFTER A SCHEDULED STOP, SHE SAID SHE WAS APPROACHED BY THE DRIVER.>>AND HE SAT BEHIND ME AND SAID THAT MY OUTFIT MADE HIM UNCOMFORTABLE AND THAT NEXT TIME I NEED TO WEAR A SHAW AND THAT ED TELL THE SAME THING TO ANYBODY. IT WASN’T JUST ME.>>Reporter: SHE WAS WEARING LOOSE FITTING PANTS AND A CROP TOP, AN OUTFIT MEANT TO KEEP HER COOL ON A HOT DAY. SHE SAID THE DRIVER TOLD HER HER OUTFIT VIOLATED THE FREDERICTON TRANSIT DRESS CODE.>>I DON’T KNOW. IT JUST FELT REALLY INAPPROPRIATE. HE SHOULD BE WATCHING THE ROAD NOT WORRIED ABOUT WHAT I’M WEARING. IT MADE ME FEEL VERY EMBARRASSED AND FELT LIKE I WAS IN THE WRONG LIKE I SHOULDN’T WEAR THIS AND YOU KNOW I DON’T NEED THAT. I DON’T NEED THAT IN FRONT OF MY SON ESPECIALLY.>>Reporter: BUT WHEN SHE CALLED FREDERICTON TRANSIT THE NEXT MORNING, SHE WAS TOLD THERE’S NO SUCH THING.>>THEY SAID THEY DON’T HAVE A DRESS CODE. AS LONG AS YOU’RE WEARING A SHIRT HE SAID IF YOU WENT ON WITH JUST PANTS AND THEY WOULD CALL THE COPS, LIKE. PRETTY MUCH ALL THEY SAID. THERE’S NO DRESS CODE AS LONG AS YOU’RE COVERED.>>Reporter: THE CITY DID CONFIRM WITH US TODAY THAT FREDERICTON TRANSIT DOES NOT HAVE A DRESS CODE AND THEY TELL US THAT AN APOLOGY HAS BEEN ISSUED TO LANGA WATKINS. CBC, FREDERICTON.>>Anita: THEY MAY BE INCREDIBLY SMALL, BUT TICKS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES AND THE CHANCE EVERY BEING BITTEN IS GOING UP AS THEY MOVE FROM THE COUNTRY TO THE CITY. CHRISTINE BIRAK IS LOOKING AT HOW YOU CAN PROTECT YOURSELF.>>I DO KNOW A FEW PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN BIT BY ONE OF THESE.>>Reporter: IT’S TIME TO START. RISING TEMPERATURES ARE ALLOWING THE BLOODSUCKERS TO SURVIVE THROUGH WINTER AND SPREAD LYME DISEASE IN PLACES THEY COULDN’T BEFORE. THE NUMBER OF CONFIRMED INFECTIONS HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED FROM ABOUT 1,000 IN 2016 TO MORE THAN 2,000 A YEAR LATER. MOST OF THOSE CASES WERE IN NOVA SCOTIA, QUEBEC, PARTS OF ONTARIO AND MANITOBA. NOW LYME DISEASE HAS ALSO MOVED INTO SOUTHERN ONTARIO, P.E.I. AND B.C.>>THIS IS SOMETHING WE WANT EVERY DOCTOR TO UNDERSTAND, THAT THE RISK FOR LYME DISEASE IS INCREASING IN CANADA.>>Reporter: SYMPTOMS CAN INCLUDE FEVER, FATIGUE AND A SKIN RASH THAT LOOKS LIKE A BULL’S-EYE. AND IF YOU SPOT A TINY TICK LATCHED ON TO THE SKIN, CAREFULLY REMOVE IT IMMEDIATELY AND GO SEE A DOCTOR.>>THERE’S A PREVENTIVE ANTIBIOTIC THAT CAN BE GIVEN RIGHT AWAY AND THAT’S IMPORTANT. THAT’S THE EARLY INTERVENTION. IT STOPS THE SPREAD OF BACTERIA IN THE BODY.>>Reporter: LEFT UNTREATED LYME DISEASE CAN CAUSE MUSCLE PAIN, SPREAD TO JOINTS AND THE HEART.>>IT’S LIKE A SPIDER TRYING TO STICK IN A GARDEN HOSE. A LOT OF FORCE GOING THROUGH THERE.>>Reporter: THAT GREEN LINE IS THE BACTERIA THAT CAUSES LYME DISEASE. IT’S CLINGING TO THE BLOOD VESSEL OF A MOUSE.>>MOVING SO FAST THAT YOU CAN’T EVEN SEE IT. LIKE IT’S JUST A STREAK OF LIGHT AT MOST.>>Reporter: TARA MORIARTY IS PART OF A LARGER CANADIAN LYME RESEARCH TEAM. SHE’S LOOKING FOR WAYS TO DISABLE THE BACTERIA.>>BEING ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THIS WILL HELP US TO DEVELOP TREATMENTS.>>Reporter: A HUMAN VACCINE FOR LYME DISEASE IS BEING TESTED BUT WON’T BE AVAILABLE FOR AT LEAST THREE YEARS.>>YOU’LL BE SLIDING THIS RIGHT ALONG YOUR SKIN RIGHT AT THE SITE WHERE THE TICK IS BITING.>>Reporter: AT THIS OUTDOOR STORE, THE BEST ADVICE, USE PREVENTION. INSECT REPELLENT WITH DEET CAN KEEP TICKS AWAY. LIGHT COLOURED CLOTHING CAN MAKE THE INSECT ABOUT THE SIZE OF A POPPY TO WATERMELON SEED EASY TO SEE AND.>>SOMETIMES IT’S HELPFUL TO TUCK YOUR PANTS INTO YOUR SOCKS. NOT SUPER FASHION FORWARD BUT IT IS EFFECTIVE.>>Reporter: AND WHEN YOU GET HOME FROM PLACES LIKE THIS, DON’T JUST CHECK THE DOG FOR TICKS. CHECK YOURSELF. A NEW THREAT REQUIRES A NEW ROUTINE. CHRISTINE BIRAK, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Anita: OUR NEXT STORY IS NOTHING TO SNEEZE AT. A NOVA SCOTIA MAN HAS NOT TAKEN A SICK DAY FROM WORK IN 36 YEARS. A MILESTONE HIS COLLEAGUES SAY IS AMAZING, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING WHERE HE WORKS. THE CBC’S CAROLYN RAY IS FINDING OUT THE SECRET TO HIS SUCCESS.>>Reporter: HE’S MODEST AND PASSIONATE ABOUT HIS JOB, BUT AROUND HERE MIKE TURNER WEARS A MIGHTY TITLE.>>MY CO-WORKERS CALL ME THE IRON MAN.>>Reporter: THE IRON MAN WITH PERHAPS AN IMMUNE SYSTEM OF STEEL. IN 36 YEARS, TURNER HAS NEVER CALLED IN SICK.>>OH, I’VE HAD A COLD BEFORE BUT I NEVER HAD ONE THAT FLOORED ME, YOU KNOW.>>Reporter: WHAT’S MORE REMARKABLE, TURNER WORKS HERE AT THE HOSPITAL IN TRURO, SURROUNDED BY GERMS. IT’S HIS JOB TO MAKE SURE EVERY DEPARTMENT HAS THE SUPPLIES IT NEEDS. ONE OF THOSE ESSENTIAL POSITIONS THAT OFTEN GOES UNNOTICED. HE SORTS THE BANDAGES, TAPE, TUBES AND MORE DELIVERING THEM WITHOUT THINKING OF BUGS ALONG THE WAY.>>AND I DO WASH MY HANDS BUT I’M NOT ONE OF THESE PEOPLE THAT WASHES THEIR HANDS CONSTANTLY IF THEY TOUCH A DOOR OR WHATEVER.>>Reporter: HE STARTED WORK ON AUGUST 8, 1983. BACK IN THE OLD HOSPITAL. HE WASHED POTS AND DELIVERED FOOD TO THE PATIENTS. THE IRONMAN WAS UNSTOPPABLE, UNTIL SOMETIME AROUND 1990, WHEN A PESKY KIDNEY STONE TRIED TO TAKE DOWN HIS PERFECT RECORD. HE DID WHAT MOST PEOPLE WOULDN’T DO. HE WENT TO WORK.>>AND THE PAIN GOT A LITTLE WORSE SO THEN I WENT DOWN TO THE LOCKER ROOM AND I SAT ON THE SOFA DOIN THERE FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES AND IT WENT AWAY AND I WAS ABLE TO WORK THAT WHOLE DAY AND THEN THAT NIGHT, WHEN I WENT HOME, I PASSED IT.>>Reporter: HE SAYS THERE’S NO SECRET TO HIS SUCCESS. HE STARTS HIS DAY OFF WITH CEREAL, MOST OFTEN FROSTED FLAKES BUT DON’T TELL THE HOSPITAL’S NUTRITIONIST THAT BIT.>>I DON’T LIKE TO JINX MYSELF BUT I HAVE BEEN VERY LUCKY AND I GUESS MY IMMUNE SYSTEM IS VERY STRONG, YES.>>Reporter: WITH RETIREMENT ONLY A FEW YEARS AWAY, HE’S HOPEFUL HIS PERFECT RECORD WILL STAY INTACT. HE’LL CONTINUE TO BE THE MOST RELIABLE PERSON IN THE BUILDING, DELIVERING THOSE SUPPLIES EVERY DAY. CAROLYN RAY, CBC NEWS, TRURO.>>Anita: RELIABLE INDEED. OK. THEY’VE DONE A LOT OF CANOEING OVER THE YEARS AND A GROUP OF TRAVELLERS WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO A TRIP THROUGH THE LABRADOR WILDERNESS. JACOB BARKER HAS MORE THOUGH ON WHY AND HOW THEIR TRIP CAME TO AN ABRUPT AND TERRIFYING END.>>Reporter: THESE PADDLERS ARE PACKING UP AND HEADING HOME EARLY. ROGER GAGNON NEVER THOUGHT THIS TRIP WOULD END THIS WAY.>>I HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE. I NEVER EXPERIENCED A THING LIKE THAT.>>Reporter: GAGNON AND HAS WIFE FRANCINE GRONDIN HAVE PADDLED TOGETHER FOR 40 YEARS AND 20,000 KILOMETRES. ASLEEP AT NIGHT IN THEIR TENT, A BEAR ATTACKED BITING GRONDIN IN THE LEG LEAVING A DEEP WOUND. IT RETREATED AFTER GAGNON HIT IT WITH A LOG.>>IT WILL STAY IN MY MIND FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE FOR SURE.>>Reporter: THE BEAR STAYED CLOSE TO THEIR CAMPSITE. IT WOULDN’T LEAVE NO MATTER WHAT THEY TRIED.>>WHEN WE SAW HIM AGAIN, WE USED BEAR BANGS. THE BEAR BASICALLY WALKED BACK TWO OR THREE STEPS OR SO. ONE OF MY FRIENDS THREW HIM A BURNING LOG. IT HIT THE BEAR. THE BEAR WALKED BACK TWO OR THREE FEET.>>Reporter: THE GROUP MOVED SLOWLY TOWARDS THEIR CANOES ON THE BEACH AND MADE THEIR ESCAPE.>>EVENTUALLY, WHEN EVERYTHING WAS READY, WE CANOED 2 KILOMETRES TO ANOTHER BEACH.>>Reporter: THERE THEY KEPT GRONDIN SHELTERED AND SAFE AND USED A SAT PHONE TO ARRANGE FOR A RESCUE FLIGHT TO THE CLOSEST HOSPITAL IN HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, OVER 200 KILOMETRES AWAY. FAVREAU SAYS HE BELIEVES THE BEAR BECAME AGGRESSIVE BECAUSE OF THE GARBAGE LEFT ON THE BEACH.>>IF YOU GO INTO NATURE, DON’T THROW ANY, ANY GARBAGE. THE NO TRACE CAMPING IS REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT.>>Reporter: GAGNON SAYS HIS WIFE IS DOING OK NOW, AND IN THE FUTURE HE’LL MAKE SURE TO HAVE PEPPER SPRAY AT HAND. JACOB BARKER, CBC NEWS, HAPPY VALLEY, GOOSE BAY. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Anita: A PRO GOLFER FROM SURREY CAME JUST SHORT OF AN HISTORIC PERFORMANCE ON THE PGA TOUR TODAY, BARELY MISSING A SCORE ONLY NINE PLAYERS HAVE ACHIEVED IN TOUR HISTORY.>>25-YEAR-OLD CANADIAN ADAM SVENSSON WAS ON 59 WATCH EARLIER.>>Anita: SVENSSON WAS ON PACE TO FINISH ROUND TWO OF THE WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP IN JUST 59 STROKES AT THE CLUB BUT LESS SUCCESS ON THE LAST 9 HOLES LEFT HIS TOTAL AT 61. STILL THAT’S JUST 3 STROKES OFF THE BEST SCORE EVER RECORDED. SVENSSON IS NOW TIED FOR THIRD IN THE TOURNAMENT AND HE WILL PLAY AGAIN TOMORROW. MEGHAN MARKLE IS TURNING HEADS NOT BECAUSE SHE APPEARED ON THE COVER OF BRITISH “VOGUE” BUT FOR WHO SHE DECIDED TO PUT ON IT. WHY HER DECISIONS ARE THE TALK OF THE U.K. COMING UP.>>THEY’RE THE MOST STUDIED AND FAMOUS WHALE FAMILY IN THE WORLD. WHAT’S PUSHING JAY POD TO THE BRINK? I’M GLORIA MACARENKO HOST OF THE ORIGINAL PODCAST “KILLERS.” IS IT TOO LATE TO SAVE THEM?>>Anita: THE MAGAZINE MOMENT FASHIONISTAS AND ROYAL WATCHERS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR IS HERE. THE ISSUE OF BRITISH “VOGUE” GUEST EDITED BY MEGHAN MARKLE HIT U.K. NEWSSTANDS TODAY. AS SUSAN ORMISTON REPORTS, JUST LIKE MOST THINGS INVOLVING THE DUCHESS OF SUSSEX, THERE’S BEEN NO SHORTAGE OF REACTION.>>Reporter: HERE IT IS, THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE OF “VOGUE” MAGAZINE, A FASHION BIBLE OF SORTS. AND ON IT, 15 WOMEN CHOSEN BY THE DUCHESS OF SUSSEX, MEGHAN MARKLE CALLING THEM FORCES FOR CHANGE. WHAT’S REMARKABLE IS SHE IS NOT ON THIS COVER. THERE IS A MIRROR-LIKE IMAGE WHERE YOU CAN SEE YOURSELF AND BE INSPIRED TO BE ON THE COVER SOME DAY. BUT SHE CHOSE TO GIVE OVER THE PLATFORM TO OTHER WOMEN. NOW THE ROYALS ASSOCIATION WITH “VOGUE” ISN’T ALL THAT UNUSUAL, CERTAINLY NOT UNPRECEDENTED. BACK IN THE EARLY 1990s, PRINCESS DIANA WAS ON THE COVER, IN FACT SEVERAL TIMES. AND ALSO THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE KATE MIDDLETON WAS ON THE 100th ANNIVERSARY COVER OF “VOGUE” MAGAZINE. NONETHELESS, THIS DECISION BY MEGHAN MARKLE HAS CREATED A LOT OF ROYAL RIPPLES. MANY PEOPLE HAVE WEIGHED IN ON TWO POINTS REALLY, THE TYPES OF WOMEN SHE CHOSE, ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS, CHANGE AGENT, SOME SAYING THAT SHE SHOULD NOT BE INVOLVED IN PEDALLING A VERY LUXURY POSH MAGAZINE WHERE SHOES COST £400, FOR EXAMPLE. BUT OTHER PEOPLE ARE SUGGESTING THAT THERE IS AN UNDERTONE OF DOUBLE STANDARD HERE FOR MEGHAN MARKLE, THAT IN FACT MANY OF THESE WOMEN ARE WOMEN OF COLOUR AND THERE IS A TOUCH OF RACISM IN THE CRITICISM OF MARKLE FOR TAKING ON THIS PROJECT. OTHERS OF COURSE SAY THAT THAT’S RUBBISH AND SHE’S BEEN WIDELY WELCOMED HERE IN BRITAIN. BUT ONE OF THE COLUMNISTS IN THE “DAILY MAIL” SARAH VINE HAD THIS TO SAY. SHE SAID — THIS LIST OF INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN, HALF OF WHOM NO ONE’S EVEN HEARD OF, MANY OF WHOM ARE JUST CELEBRITIES, ALL CHOSEN SUPPOSEDLY FOR THEIR INCLUSION SAYS MORE ABOUT YOU THAN ANYTHING ELSE. AND YOU FAILED TO NOMINATE THE TRULY INSPIRATIONAL WOMAN IN YOUR LIFE, THE QUEEN. OUCH! OTHERS HAVE SAID THIS IS TRULY ONE OF THE CHANGES THAT MEGHAN MARKLE HAS BROUGHT TO THE ROYAL FAMILY IN BRITAIN AND THIS SHOULD BE CELEBRATED AND NOT CRITICIZED. IT CERTAINLY HAS BEEN CONTROVERSIAL. MAYBE WHAT “VOGUE” WANTED ALL ALONG. SUSAN ORMISTON, CBC NEWS, LONDON.>>Anita: OH, IT’S BEEN A CONTROVERSY WHEN IT COMES TO THE ROYALS. ALL RIGHT. BEFORE WE GO TONIGHT, SOME MUSIC TO SHARE WITH YOU COURTESY OF THE VANCOUVER BAND COUSIN HARLEY. [ ♪♪♪ ] THE HILLBILLY BAND ROCKED OUR MUSICAL NOONER STAGE. JUST A NOTE OF COURSE THE NOONERS ARE OFF FOR HOLIDAY ON MONDAY. BUT RESTART ON TUESDAY, AND THEY DO GO UNTIL AUGUST 16th EVERY DAY FROM NOON TO 1:00 AND THEY’RE FREE RIGHT HERE AT CBC VANCOUVER. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Anita: LOVE THOSE SOUNDS. OF COURSE YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND OUR NEWS PROGRAM ONLINE cbc.ca/bc. OUR NEXT LOCAL NEWS IS RIGHT HERE AT 11:00 AFTER “THE NATIONAL.” JASON D’SOUZA IS HOSTING TONIGHT. HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND. [ ♪♪♪ ]
