CBCN - Saturday, May 25, 2024 - 12:00 a.m. (ET) - Segment #10

>>> The truck driver responsible for the deadly humboldt broncos bus crash has been ordered out of the country. Manpreet gill was responsible for the crash that killed 16 people and injured 13. It could take months or years before he's deported. His lawyer says he plans to fight the decision on humanitarian grounds. >>> Israel has received a clear order from the international court of justice: stop the assault on the city of rafah. Israel has already said no power on earth can stop it, and the court has no power to enforce it, but as sasa petricic explains, it does add to the international pressure. >> Reporter: the international court of justice their orders are direct. >> Israel must immediately halt its rafah offense and any other actions by the israel government. >> Reporter: the palestinians welcome the order. But it's not that simple. Though the order is legally binding, the court has no way to enforce it, and israel has vowed to carry on. A statement from prime minister benjamin netanyahu says israel is defending itself consistent with its moral values and consistent with international law. The outrage is shared on the streets of tel aviv where the feeling of the attacks on october 7 is more evidence. Within hours of the ruling, bombs were dropping on rafah once again. America has to pressure israel, says this man, but it won't. The U.S. responded by pointing to its long opposition to israel's rafah offensive. As for canada -- >> Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: the I.C.J.s proposals are binding, and we expect everyone to follow them as a matter of international law. >> Reporter: even if israel ignores it, observers say the pressure has now grown significantly. >> Israel will not able to remain a part of the democratic world if it will go on ignoring the most important institutions of the international community. >> Reporter: and not just this one. Another tribunal, the international criminal court, is considering arrest warrants for netanyahu and his defence minister for alleged war crimes, accusations he has dismissed. Sasa petricic, cbc news, toronto. >> Erica: pro-palestinian protesters at the university of toronto encampment have been given a new deadline to leave and a warning. The university says it will take all legal steps to clear out the protesters if they aren't gone by monday and also threatened students with fines and suspensions. It comes after students dismissed the university's offer to set up a committee to study their demands as too vague.

>>> People in ontario will soon be able to buy alcohol in a lot more places. Premier doug ford and the provincial government is rolling out an expansion on booze sales starting this summer, and as nisha patel explains, it comes 1.5 years earlier than scheduled. >> Reporter: for this small convenience store, selling beer and wine is a big opportunity. >> So yeah, I think there will be a boost in the sales, as well. >> Reporter: a more open marketplace is one reason ontario's premier says the province is accelerating its expansion of where alcohol can be sold. >> Our plan will create new opportunities for local breweries, wineries, retailers, and small businesses. It's going to give people more choice and convenience. >> Reporter: starting august 1, grocery stores in ontario, which already sell beer and wine, can sell ready-to-drink cocktails. By october, grocery stores and convenience stores will join the mix. That could add up to as many as 8500 new retailers. >> Just having the opportunity to be able to grabbing it wherever makes sense. >> I actually like the law of it being in separate stores. >> Reporter: alberta is looking into the possibility of expanding liquor sales, but to bring in these changes, ontario will have to pay up to $225 million in taxpayer money to end a ten-year agreement that have given the privately owned beer store a near monopoly. In change, the beer store will keep hundreds of locations keep as well as the recycling programme. Local beer makers, though, toasted the move. >> The fact that beer will be in big box, beer will be in costco, beer will be in corner stores, it's great. The more distribution the better for us craft brewers. >> Reporter: nisha patel, cbc news, toronto. >> Erica: some daycare providers are threatening to pull out of the government's national child care programme as costs are soaring and wait lists are, too. >> Reporter: sherry reiger's daughters are on many wait lists. The family, like many, are struggling to find a licensed care provider. >> Some are saying they won't have a space for two or three years. >> Reporter: the government spent tens of millions of dollars to create more spots and cut the amount that parents pay to $10 a day. >> As child care has become more affordable, we hear from patients parents that access it that we need more spaces. >> Reporter: daycare providers are already struggling to afford the spots they already have, but costs are soaring as well as inflation is affecting a liveable wage. As part of the deal, daycares can't raise their fees, an option they had in the past to offset costs. Some private care centres in ontario who access those public dollars have threatened to pull out of the programme altogether unless they get more money. >> It is not convinceindental that the only ones playing this game of chicken are the private daycare providers. >> The funding is great. It's a great incentive to get us mums back out to work, but again, if I can't access it, what is the point? >> Reporter: to add to sherry's anxiety in finding daycare, she's expecting her third child this fall. That baby doesn't have a name yet but it's already on a wait list. Marina von stackelberg, cbc news, ottawa. >> Erica: a change to the rcmp's dress code is being criticized by some indigenous communities. Ribbon skirts, symbols of identity and strength, will be an optional part of the ceremonial uniform. Cameron mcintosh shows us the praise and the push back. >> Reporter: this week, the

dress uniform of the rcmp got an addition. A ribbon skirt featuring four colours representing four directions after a push by female indigenous members and elders, including judy pelle. >> It really signifies how we have pride in our womanhood, how we're matriarchs of our communities. >> Reporter: many indigenous women see it as a symbol of their identity. For the rcmp deciding to adopt it makes it insulting to some. At this march in winnipeg for residential school survivors, strong feelings. >> We need to focus on the justice and the truth and reconciliation which I don't believe the rcmp has done today. >> I think that's an insult to our people. >> Reporter: but not everyone feels that way. >> It represents the woman and how we're just growing stronger. >> Reporter: the push for an rcmp skirt came after rcmp officers gave one to a young saskatchewan girl shamed at school for wearing hers. Pelle is the girl's grandmother. In a lengthy instrument, the rcmp says it consulted indigenous staff and advisors. The rcmp also allows I thinkndigenous officers to take an oath on an eagle feather and wear indigenous sashes. >> The rcmp doesn't own the ribbon skirt, it's owned by the members that wear it. >> Reporter: the rcmp says there are about 300 indigenous members of the force eligible to wear the skirt as conversation around it underscores the complexities of reconciliation. Cameron mcintosh, cbc news, winnipeg. >> Erica: tonight, louisiana's governor signed a controversial new law designating two commonly used abortion pills as dangerous controlled substances. It's believed to be a first of its kind. If someone is found to be in possession of the drugs without a prescription they could face fines or even prison time. Louisiana already bans abortions in most cases. Doctors say it will make it harder to prescribe the pills which are used for treating miscarriages and inducing labour.

>>> A landmark settlement in the U.S. could change the landscape of college sports. It paves the way for future and college athletes to be paid, a change many say is long overdue. Alison northcott has more on the payment and what's still up in the air. >> Reporter: some of the biggest names in sports started here in college. U.S. athletes in college sports have long been considered amateurs, but a settlement on a lawsuit would see athletes paid directly. This attorney sued the ncaa, alleging it violated antitrust laws by restricting athletes' access to compensation. The ncaa denied wrongdoing. >> For ten years, the athletes will be entitled to share revenue including lucrative broadcast, ticket sales, and media deals that the schools and conferences have. >> Reporter: the settlement includes $2.8 billion in back pay for thousands of former college athletes. The ncaa called it an important step in the continued reformation of college sports. >> It's the biggest development since the ncaa was founded in 1906. >> We have coaches paid $70 million to $100 million, and athletic directors making over $100 million, but the athletes who generate this get zero. >> Reporter: there are questions whether canadian athletes in the U.S. would be eligible. International visas restrict opportunities for contracts with sponsors which their american teammates have been able to do since 2021. >> If canadian athletes cannot, like name, image, and likeness, we may see some canadian athletes choosing to stay home. >> Reporter: athletes could be getting paid as soon as the 2025 fall semester. Alison northcott, cbc news, washington. >> Erica: documentary film maker morgan spurlock, best known for his film "super size me," has died. >> I think I'm going to have to go super size. >> Erica: for the film, spurlock ate only McDONALDS for 30 days to illustrate the harms of a fast-food diet. His other work touched on issues like corporate power and the U.S. war in afghanistan. He died of cancer at his home in new york. He was 53.

The McKENZIE river is a vital artery for communities which rely on barges to deliver supplies. For some, that's now impossible. The river is fed by great slave lake, canada's deepest, but juanita taylor shows us it's the lowest ever recorded this time of year. >> What we're seeing now is totally unprecedented. >> Reporter: like nearly everyone in the dehcho region of the northwest territories, this man has never seen the McKENZIE river this low ever. >> How is it affecting the fish, the water that we drink, the birds, the animals. >> Reporter: he monitors the water levels on the river in fort simpson, and it's not just the river. The great slave lake is the lowest it's ever been in canada, the river bed now visible. >> These extreme low water levels are the result of extreme drought over the last two, 2.5 years. >> Reporter: water levels in great slave lake have dropped over a metre, the lowest it's been since record keeping began. >> We've seen a lot of evaporations, a lot of water loss, and it hasn't been replenished. >> Reporter: the level of the water is having a major impact on this construction season: deliveries have been delayed. Now the federal government is working with indigenous communities to figure out a plan. >> McKENZIE river is our highway. If a large major city like toronto had the 401 closed, imagine the disruption and imagine the cost. Now put yourself in remote indigenous communities and that's even amplified. >> Reporter: people want -- here want to know when the

water will return. Hydrologists say it will take time and a lot of rain. But the bad news for communities is it won't happen now. >> Erica: seniors are looking for creative ways to stay in their communities. We'll show you the different ways that some people are choosing to live together. >>> And the U.S. government is going after megaentertainment company live nation. >> Ticketmaster ought to look in the mirror and say, I'm the problem.

>>> Millennials and gen-z votes could makeup close to half of the electorate in the next election, and as ashley burke shows us, the prime minister and members of his caucus are trying to use social media to reach them. >> Reporter: these staffers work for environment minister randy boissonnault but in this case they're calling the shots. >> I'm going to say with confidence you're walking away. >> Reporter: they're directing social media videos that could hit with millennials and gen-z like the liberals have heard from young canadians they want authentic politicians. This is one way they're trying to wintrust. >> Going to have some videos that are fun and edgy and that say I'm real. >> Reporter: it's all part of an effort to win young voters. >> It's answeringheuestions that they have, speaking to the issues that they have on platforms that they are on. >> Reporter: trudeau's liberals need the support of cada'sargest voting demographic or risk losin the next election. >> Right now, liberals are in the worst position with millennial voters and gen-z voters. >> You want to be able to afford rent? Then you have to vote for pierre poilievre. >> Reporter: in the last year, the liberals have pivoted with housing announcements and a budget focused on younger canadians. >> To ensure fairness for every generation. >> Reporter: but how do you get that message to younger voters who don't watch traditional news? Talk to content creators including danica nelson. She says that content creators are a way to meet this generation. >> They want to meet people where they are, and a way to do that is on social media. >> Reporter: the prime minister's office is also sharpening its social media game, doing more interviews with podcasters and making more videos explaining policy. >> Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: you may have heard of the capital gains tax. >> Reporter: that video getting millions of views, but whether that translates into trust and votes is too early to tell. Ashley burke, cbc news, ottawa. >> Erica: now it's time to dig deeper into the stories shaping our world. [ ] >> Erica: we found different ways seniors are using to avoid care homes and age in place. >> Turned a cold apartment building into a warm community. >> Erica: but first, canadians say yes to the U.S. government's vow to break up live nation and cut ticket prices. >> I think it's a great idea. >> Yeah. >> Erica: washington says it means business. Entertainment reporter eli glasner is here to breakdown the coming battle and what it could mean for fans. Well eli, how did we get to this point where the U.S. is trying to break up ticketmaster and live nation? >> Reporter: so you may remember back in 2022 tickets for the taylor swift tour went on sale. There was massive demand, and the essentially the system crash buckled under the weather of the fans swift took ticketmaster to task, saying, "i'm not ging to make excuses for anyone because we asked them multiple times if they could handle this kind of demand and they assured us they could. It's amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it sucks that a lot of people went through several bear attacks to get them." this led to ticketmaster executives being hauled before congress and senators quoting swift song lyrics and the C.E.O. apologizing. >> May I suggest respectfully that ticketmaster ought to look in the mirror and say, I'm the problem. It's me. >> Senator, we absolutely agree. There are a lot of problems in this industry, and as the leading player, we have an obligation to do better. >> Reporter: but behind the scenes, the department of justice had already launched an investigation two years of looking how the company monopolized the industry. You'll remember that the U.S. country allowed ticketmaster
