CHFD - Thursday, May 23, 2024 - 06:00 a.m. (ET) - Segment #7

not one, there are dozens of different species. But the point being, what a great plant to put in your garden to attract pollenaters. I love this victoria blue salvia. >> Ross: favorite colour, this purple. >> Is it? >> Ross: yeah, it's beautiful. >> And the truth is, not a lot of plants produce true blue. I can name four. >> Ross: and this is a pollen plant. >> It is. It will come into its own in july, august. And I have holly hock. This is a little holly hock plant here, you wouldn't know anything by looking at it, it's going to grow almost three metres tall, filled with pollenating insects for the five weeks it's in bloom through july. >> Ross: 90 seconds left here. Bringing it down to the garden level, why do you think it's important to have the pollenating plants for the rest of the garden? >> Well, pollenaters increase the productivity of your garden. If you grow tomatoes, apple orchard, peach, the more pollenaters you have, the more fruit you have. What is a pollenater doing when it goes in,er it removes the knechter or pollen from the flower and moves it to the next one, what is happening. >> Ross: it's spreading that plant, the food, the seed. >> It's fertilizing the flowers. We maybe shouldn't get into more detail. >> Ross: that's another segment perhaps. >> That's a whole other segment. I don't want anything to do with it. This is is important because pollenaters maximize the flowering potential of the plants in your garden and fruiting potential. >> Ross: great advice. I'm glad we got into the details >> As much as we did. >> Ross: I think it's important people know the importance to have plants and it's not all about the vegetables or the beautiful plants, it's about the smaller plants that attract what you need to your garden.

Jaden lee-lincoln joins us now from the scene with what we know so far. Good morning, jaden. >> Jaden: good morning, candace, and many parents will be waking up this morning a little alarmed to find out that this shooting actually happened in a school parking lot here in mississauga. This is at settler's green public school. Again, right near winston churchill and battleford road. As you can see in this parking lot, multiple evidence markers. I counted at least 17 or 18 evidence markers. There's also a mercedes benz that also looks to be a part of the investigation for police. Keep in mind this is an ongoing investigation, but, yes, what we know is that two people are in hospital following this double shooting. The suspect or suspects are still on the loose. No information about that either either. Peel paramedics tell us that they arrived sunshine, but ended up leaving the scene because it was the two people themselves that were shot that ended upbringing themselves to the hospital. Now, keep in mind, this is a residential area. Again, this is right by settler's green public school, so the big question is what happens with the school? Well, I'll let you know that it looks like the parking lot is taped off. The playground for the most part is taped off, but the school itself looks like it's going to be open this morning. There is a command post that is set up just out front of the school. A lot of time, expand posts are put there to let people in the community know, hey, police are here. Don't worry. You know, we're on the lookout. So it looks like they'll be set up there for the at a and it seems as though school will be open for the day. Although many parents and students might be a little bit worried about heading to class today. Again, the investigation continues. It sounds like there will be a heavy police presence in this area for a large portion of the day. Candace, I'll send it back to you. >> Candace: okay, jaden. Thanks so much.

>>> Members of the kilmer sports ventures group are holding a press conference later this morning in toronto. Several media outlets reported earlier this month the wnba will award a franchise to the group. If confirmed, the deal first reported by the cbc would see this new toronto team likely take the court in 2026. >>> New information about the deadly boat crash over the weekend on bobs lake near kingston. Three young people were killed. Five others were injured. >> I was just hoping not to hear the crunch, and then I heard the crunch. >> Candace: tony hammond heard the sound of the boat crash after sunset on tuesday night. 22-year-old juliette cote is one of the fatalities. Hammond was among those trying to find and rescue the victims in the dark. >> Because you're looking, and you're not finding, and the clock's tick, and you're just hoping someone with an actual built to search above and below water will phone us, because I'm using a cellphone flashlight. >> Candace: hammond says he has seen the boat speeding. The bay has a SOkm/h speed limit. No charges have been laid, but the police investigation continues. >>> A jury has found dallas ly, the toronto man who admitted to killing his mother, guilty of second-degree murder. Our crime specialist katherine McDONALD has been covering this disturbing case before the beginning and has more on the verdict. >> Reporter: just minutes after a jury found dallas ly guilty of second-degree murder, his lawyers speak outside court about their 23-year-old client. >> Yes, we spoke to him. >> He's obviously disappointed, obviously, in the verdict, and you know, the fact that he is going to be sentenced now to a life sentence is something that is very difficult for this young man to have to deal with in the circumstances. >> Reporter: dallas ly, who testified in his own defence, said after years of physical and mental abuse, on the night of march 27th, 2022, he told his mother after she returned home from work at her nail salon that he was moving out from their carlaw avenue condo and moving in with his aunt. He testified his mother became enraged. Threatened to kill him and his aunt and began punching and hitting him. He said he saw red and began swinging the knife and hit his mother. >> Our doctor, Dr. Patel, interviewed dallas ly extensively, he felt -- he gave an opinion, a psychiatric opinion after reviewing all the evidence, that dallas ly will suffer from post traumatic stress order at the time of the homicide. We say that that reduced his mental culpability. He did not have the intent to commit murder murder. >> Reporter: the judge ruled a forensic psychiatrist for the crown was allowed to give a pure assessment of that psychiatric opinion without interviewing dallas ly. That could be grounds for an appeal. >> -- offered a critique of the defence doctor, and we've opposed that during this trial. >> Reporter: dallas ly never got help for his abuse, and only confided in one friend. >> The role of mental health still has a stigma, and abuse and neglect, we see it. It's out there. It's hard to get young people the help that we need, that we need, that our community needs. >> Reporter: second-degree murder comes with an automotive life sentence. The judge news mow decide on a period of parole eligibility between ten and 25 years. A sentencing hearing has been planned for next week, at which time lawyers for both the defence and crown will be making decision "h"submissions. Katherine McDONALD, "global news." includes: >> Candace: you know, ross, as a principle, try not to bring out the ac or turn it on until, like, june at the earliest, but turns out I might have been justified if I did turn it on yesterday. >> Ross: oh, for sure. I had the air-conditioning on in my house, too. It was certainly uncomfortable if you didn't have ac for the warmth and humidity of late. So more comfortable out there today. >> Candace: for sure. >> Ross: a beautiful day in store, though, with plenty of temperatures. At this time yesterday, we were more towards the high teens, low 20s, and humanity decks was already into the 20s. We're closer to the mid-teens when it comes to temperatures out there, and our humidex values are going to lean more towards the high 20s today instead of MID-30s. Still a few remaining showers through eastern ontario.

a bit of cloud cover too, but that's pretty much it. We have a ridge building in behind that storm tracker that's going to give us clear skies and sunshine really for the next couple of days. 26 in london. Not the high 20s that we got to yesterday. Even some low 30s for some areas. And hen through the overnight, that overnight low will drop down to near 13°. More comfortable sleeping weather. As well, you can see plenty of sunshine today. The same situation on friday. Now, we have to watch out for the potential for some wet weather saturday, likely through the late morning and into the afternoon. That will quickly move out and we'll see a drier sunday. 23, 24, 25° depending on where you are across the gta on friday. 21 with the chance of those showers and thunderstorms on saturday. Up to 22 sunday. A sun/cloud mix. More unsettled weather and some wet wet through next week, and that's a look at your ok tire weather. Candace. >> Candace: thanks, ross. Well, if you feel like your seasonal allergies are worse this year, you are not alone. Gentleman sinus and my throat. That's why I sound all stuffy. >> Candace: yep. She's just one of millions of canadians sniffling through a difficult spring allergy season. Because the warm weather is starting earlier, so are allergies, and that's creating a real run on medications at local pharmacies. >> It's the time of year, so the allergy medication is just going to start flying off the shelves for the next little while. I actually have to order a completely new stock. Just usually ends up being no sprays and antihistamines. >> Candace: and you may want to consider a sinus rinse. >>> Canada's greatest soccer star is getting her very own barbie doll.
