[ ] >> Announcer: "ctv national news" with heather butts. >> Heather: good evening. A historic homecoming for a newfoundland soldier who went off to war more than a century ago but fell in battle and was buried in a french cemetery. A powerful ceremony in france where hundreds of men from the newfoundland regiment were killed during the first world war. The remains then transferred to the canadian government. Ctv's garrett barry has been following the unknown soldier's repatriation. >> Reporter: one of newfoundland's lost soldiers is finally home tonight. A long journeyed capped off by a final chapter that started this morning at beaumont-hamel. Under blue skies, canadian soldiers took one of their own in their arms. Right behind the casket, a hug between premier andrew furey and his young son, serving as the official next of kin >> Knowing that somebody's father, somebody's mother didn't know where this person was is overwhelming. To be there with my son, I feel the weight of being premier and a father at the same time. >> Reporter: by hearse, by plane, and then by fighter jet escort, the unknown soldier was carried home. Waiting to witness his return, dozens lined the streets of st. John's for the procession through the city. >> It's probably one of the most important event in the last 100 years for our province. And to see that the people of newfoundland are supporting us, supporting our boys, is amazing. >> Reporter: beaumont-hamel is home to a devastating chapter in newfoundland's pre-canadian history. Within mere minutes on july 1st, 1916, hundreds of young men were killed and injured after they were ordered over the top by the british commanders. The big push into german machine gun fire. [ Speaking French ] >> Reporter: newfoundland is part of beaumont-hamel, says the mayor of the small french town. We are forever linked.

John's. A sorryceremony will be held on july 1st, newfoundland and labrador's memorial day. >> Heather: that will be another sombre day. Thank you.

>>> With the backdrop of a looming strike at canada's border agency, there are growing calls for better intelligence training and tracking. A recent evaluation of the program monitoring a range of threats from gun smuggling to human trafficking highlights gaps in the system. Ctv's tony grace has more. >> Reporter: batches of chemicals that could have become 2 million doses of fentanyl. And 25 million doses of ectasy. Both considered intelligence wins at canada's borders in a report calling for improved training and tools. >> It provides an important insight into a hidden part of the work of canada border services agency. >> Reporter: an internal review made public this month found insufficient access to intelligence training for officers and analysts, calling it one of the major challenges that could pose risk to the agencies. With new recruits often working seven months or more without formal intelligence training. >> Cbsa has been struggling since its creation to transform it into what is often called an intelligence-led organization. >> Reporter: and that's critical because of a growing focus on spotting national security threats. Including from the trove of data online that can be open sourced but isn't always sewn together. The report recommending better technology on that front. >> It's a combination of taking raw data, using artificial intelligence, using human analytical capabilities to come up with an intelligence picture. >> Reporter: just this week, the cbsa underscored the need in their bid to crack down on auto theft and sharpen their watch on what's leaving the country. >> We're now looking at things being exported as well. >> Reporter: as a result of this report, the cbsa is reviewing its training standards, certifying it's own instructors, identifying data gaps and new technology to help, and mapping out a new way to measure goals and outcomes. >> The key message that comes out is that the intelligence capabilities that cbsa needs are not really at that point that they are required to be. >> Reporter: what the agency didn't attach to its plan is a timeline. And tonight the union representing border workers, which could strike next month, tells me what they really need are another two to three thousand staff for all areas of their work. And assurances that new technology will compliment workers, not replace them. >> Heather: tony, thank you.

>>> Ukraine's president is tonight urging world leaders to supply more air defence protection following a deadly russian strike in kharkiv. The renewed ask comes well over a year after canada promised a system to help with that very defence. It still hasn't arrived. Colton praill reports. >> Reporter: two employees of this mangled hardware store are the latest victims of russia's deadly aerial assault on kharkiv. Dozens were injured today in multiple missile strikes, targeting residential and commercial areas of the eastern border city. [Speaking Alternative Language] >> Reporter: president volodymyr zelenskyy calling on allies to help bolster ukraine's air defence capabilities. >> Today I am announcing... >> Reporter: in january 2023, canada committed to delivering ukraine a $400 million surface to air missile system. 16 months later, it still hasn't left the united states. >> The western world should get some guts. I'm sorry for being this emotional, but I just see the people die in kharkiv every day. >> Reporter: in a statement, the defence ministry pointed to american production delays. Instead highlighting a recent $76 million contribution to a fund aimed at bolstering ukraine's air defences. The attack comes just weeks before a peace summit. Ukraine has created a ten-point proposal for peace that has slowly gathered more international support over the past year as allies push for negotiations to resume. >> They don't want to be seen as pro-russia, but at the same time they don't want to have an endless funnel of funds and resources and seeing ongoing war at europe's borders. >> Reporter: putin says they've never refused peace talks, but they must not be resumed on the grounds of what only one party wants. An american proposal to use frozen russian assets to finance ukraine's defence gained more traction at a g7 finance ministers meeting in italy today. Russia has pushed back heavily against the idea, even threatening legal action. The final decision is expected next month. Heather. >> Heather: colton praill in ottawa.

>>> Toronto police are searching for multiple suspects who opened fire at a jewish girls school. >> One of the questions that I'm sure people are asking is if this is a hate crime. Is this a terrorist act. It's too early in the investigation to say. >> Heather: investigators believe the shooting happened just before 5:00 A.M. by more than one person travelling in a dark-coloured vehicle. There will now be an increased police presence in the north york neighborhood. >>> More than 24 hours after the university of toronto issued a trespass notice to pro-palestinian protesters, the encampment still stands. Tensions remain high at many of the country's leading universities with a growing riff between the student body and the schools. Ctv's kamil karamali reports. >> Reporter: not willing to go quietly, protesters of the university of toronto's pro-palestinian encampment continue to march forward, despite a looming deadline to dismantle the tents by monday morning or face legal action. >> It has definitely strengthened the resolve. We do not plan to leave. >> Reporter: it was on friday afternoon, special constables handed out trespass notices. And while the situation continues to escalate here, other post-secondary institutes across canada are also seeing a growing divide in negotiations between the school and its student protesters. Mcgill university in montreal had two failed legal bids. No end in sight either for protests at the university of british columbia. >> We are staying strong. >> Reporter: while the university of quebec in montreal filed an injunction this week, with a judge set to make a decision on monday. The university of alberta called in law enforcement earlier this month, now facing backlash. Faculty members passing a vote of nonconfidence against the school's president amid calls for him to resign. But at least one school seems to have found a successful outcome. Mcmaster university in hamilton says it's come to an agreement to end the encampment by agreeing to disclose its investments and making up to $200,000 available annually for palestinians and other students. At u of t, growing concerns among some jewish student groups. >> We're hearing from jewish students at the u of t and all across the province who are experiencing increased anti-semitism. >> Reporter: but these protesters promise only peace, with the focus on sunday on one final hail mary, a meeting between the two sides set for tomorrow evening. >> Heather: and in the middle east today, attacks in gaza with dozens more killed according to palestinian health officials. This just a day after the u.n.'s top court ordered an end to israel's military operation in rafah. Ctv's jeremie charron takes a closer look tonight at why the ruling may not have the direct impact many are hoping for. >> Reporter: bodies carried away in bags. Israeli strikes in the enclave have killed more than 40 people today according to palestinian health officials. [Speaking Alternative Language] >> Reporter: we were sitting peacefully and boom, a missile from a drone. This man says. The israeli defence force pressing on, despite a new order from the international court of justice for a ceasefire in the city of rafah. [Speaking Alternative Language] >> Reporter: we want the operation to stop completely, this man says. We want a final ceasefire. Israel has condemn the the ruling, saying it has the right to defend itself against hamas. It isn't the first attempt the court has made to pressure the israelis to pull back. Instead, they pushed ahead with their operations. >> Israel's argument is that this is a defensive war. It was something brought on israel. That there was a ceasefire on october 6th, and this is not a war of choice but this is something necessary to ensure the safety of its population. >> Reporter: and the real challenge for the world court is enforcement. >> What would need to happen would be that the icj would need to refer their ruling to the U.N. security council, which would then need to vote in favour of forcing israel to stop this invasion. >> Reporter: while the security council could enforce the order, it's highly unlikely the ruling would be voted through with the U.S. having veto power. >> It's up to states, but it's also up to global civil society to take the ruling and then to try and implement political gains in terms of pressuring other countries to force israel to comply by the rules. >> Reporter: that pressure could be felt during ceasefire and hostage release negotiations, which are now expected to presume next week led by qatary

and egyptian mediators. >> Heather: children are among the at least 27 people kill the at a massive fire in an amusement park in western india. The bodies of victims pulled from the wreckage with the search now under way for more. The venue is privately owned and operated, and police say they will file a negligence case against the owner. >>> Canada's shelter system may be failing a growing number of seniors seeking safe refuge. Facilities are not designed to meet the physical or mental health needs of older adults, and studies show those experiencing homelessness age faster and are considered seniors as early as 50. Ctv's kathy le has more. >> Reporter: the mustard seed is a safe haven for vulnerable people, serving clients in three provinces. There's been an uptick in demand at its shelters in general, including adults over 50. >> About 8% of the individuals that stayed in our shelter were over the age of 65. We have individuals up to the age of 80. >> Reporter: the reality is reflected in a canadian medical association journal study that analyzed homelessness across canada. >> This is not just due to individuals who are ageing within circumstances of homelessness, but also a real rise in the number of individuals who are experiencing homelessness for the first time in late life. >> Reporter: the country's housing crisis and strain from inflation just some of the factors contributing to the troubling trend. >> Either they've experienced health emergency or they've experienced a sudden increase in rent, and they are unable to afford both food, shelter, and medication. >> Reporter: add to that obstacles older people face like fixed income or health issues, like mobility issues or dementia. >> I do see a number of individuals where it's been their dementia that has led to difficulty with maintaining their housing, such as not paying bills and getting evicted. >> Reporter: and the study finds most shelters aren't designed to help an older demographic with their physical and mental needs. Samantha lowe says their partners in their edmonton shelter does offer health services >> But we're not able to provide that in all our shelters. >> Reporter: while collaboration between health and long-term care and other social services is needed to address the issue, lowe says preventive measures like affordable housing is the ideal solution. Kathy le, ctv news, calgary. >> Heather: coming up, the resurgence of an almost eradicated disease. >> We're having troubles controlling those numbers. >> Heather: what's behind the skyrocketing cases of syphilis.
