on ctv [ ] >> Roger: aid trucks are entering gaza via southern israel today following a new agreement to bypass the rafah crossing with egypt. >> I don't want to jump to any conclusions. The investigators aren't going to jump to any conclusions. At the same time we're not going to ignore the obvious. >> Roger: toronto police are investigating after shots were fired at a jewish elementary school. >> Along the wall. Steel. Suter with a shot. Scores! Deflected in front! >> Roger: california, edmonton, game two of the western final. Who won? We will tell you. You're watching ctv news channel. I'm roger petersen, thank you very much for joining us. Aid trucks have begun to enter gaza via southern israel, it's part of a new agreement. It was closed when israeli forces seized the palestinian size earlier this month. Egypt had refused to reopen its side until control of the gazan side was handed back to the palestinians. Under U.S. and israeli pressure, it agreed to redirect traffic through the main cargo terminal. It's unclear if humanitarian groups will be able to access the aid because of fighting in the air. >>> A frightening incident has toronto police looking at a possible hate crime or even worse. Shots were fired at a jewish elementary school. Sean leathong with details. >> Reporter: a single bullet hole marks the window of the bais chaya mushka school for girls. Police confirming multiple shots were fired at the building early this morning. Suspects arrived at the school in a vehicle, a dark-coloured vehicle. They exited the vehicle and opened fire at the school causing some damage to the front of the school. >> Reporter: according to police the shooting happened just before 5 this morning. The school is located on crestwood drive surrounded by businesses. Police spent the day going through security footage. >> You will see an increased presence not only in this neighbourhood. >> Reporter: police will not call the shooting a hate crime and say they will enter the investigation with an open mind. >> The investigation will tell us what occurred here. That's why we have hate crime involved in this investigation. We're not ignoring the obvious. >> Reporter: premier doug ford writing on "x" this is a gross display of anti-semitism. Every student deserves to feel safe at school. If you have any information, contact toronto police. These cowards need to be found and brought to justice. >> Reporter: reaction from the jewish centre has been swift with a statement coming from the centre for israel and jewish affairs saying we demand justice. We demand swift action. The fact a school was targeted regardless of whether kids were present or not represents a worrying escalation in the violence jewish canadians have been experiencing and from friends of simon wiesenthal, which reads in part, it's time for leaders to stop with the sympathetic words and take the actions necessary to confront the escalating hatred plaguing our communities. Jews in this country will not hide in fear in the face of this brazen cowardly act. Police say they are stepping up their visibility within the community. >> The community will see officers at other schools, high visibility at synagogues, to ensure that the public understands that community safety is number one for us. >> Reporter: police have not said how many suspects they're looking for. Sean leathong, ctv news, toronto. >> Roger: a possible showdown brewing for tomorrow at the pro palestinian encampment at the university of toronto. The demonstrators have been ordered to leave. They say they aren't going anywhere. Ctv's rahim ladhani has the story. >> Reporter: more than 170 tents continue to occupy the green space at kings college circle at the university of toronto. Pro palestinian demonstrators vowing to stay put despite being delivered trespass notices. >> To us it is shocking that u of t would rather call the police than stop investing in weapons and bombs. >> Reporter: the heightened situation can escalate further with police enforcement on monday. Toronto's mayor says she won't be involved with that decision. >> It's not up to the mayor to tell the police what to do. There's a law to enforce. It's up to the university of toronto and police and there is a very important point to make. >> Reporter: the university has given those in the encampment a new deadline and an offer. They have until 8 monday morning to vacate. If not, the notice says necessary legal steps will be taken. The university is also inviting students to present their demands to u of t's governing board of council and former working group and consider

options. >> Reporter: the administration has not agreed to allow us to appoint people to this committee. We can make recommendations under the current proposal. Recommendations need to be approved by the president. He has final say. >> The offer makes clear that the university will not end partnerships with israeli schools. Encampment organizers describe it as an inadequate ultimatum prompting demonstrators to take further action. >> A group of students have begun an indefinite hunger strike. We will continuing in the university stops aligning itself with war criminals. We won't eat. >> Reporter: the two sides will have an opportunity to find common ground when they meet again for talks on sunday at a p.m. >> There is an ongoing genocide. We are asking for u of t to commit to meeting our demands now. We have been here for 22 days. We are here now. We want them to take us seriously now, not in the future. >> Reporter: an attempt to end the more than three weeks long standoff. Rahim ladhani, ctv news. >> Roger: francois legault is open to taking major steps to curb children's social media use. It comes amid pressure from his party's youngest members. Ctv's olivia o'malley has more. >> Reporter: robots are rolling around the caq convention. Social media and A.I. are topics of discussion with its eye on the future of quebec. The party says it's concerned about youth and technology. [ Speaking French ] >> Reporter: premier francois legault says platforms such as instagram and TikTok are nothing less than virtual pushers. He's offering to hold a transpartisan committee to study the effects of screens on the health and development of young people. This comes after parti quebecois leader paul st. Pierre plamondon has been calling on the network to ban certain actions for young people. The caq says studying the issue will hopefully help parents with young children. >> We don't want to substitute their role. We want to help them deal with this situation seems to be worrying a lot of parents. As you saw earlier today, a lot of youth as well. The youth today were the ones most vocal about this issue. That was impressive to me actually. >> Reporter: the heart of the debate was the caq youth links proposal to set the minimum age for accessing social media platforms to 16 years old. When it came to the debate, the proposal was watered down. In the end, legault made his offer to the opposition leaders. The government has banned cell phones in class, education minister says the commission will help him see if they should be banned further. >> I'm looking forward to this commission helping me and helping us to have a better comprehension on this particular issue. >> Reporter: caq MNAs say the commission will be formed by 2025 at the latest which could potentially bring changes. Legault says the party will continue to make for the next generation. Olivia o'malley, ctv news. >> Roger: there were rallies in cities and towns across alberta yesterday to send a message to the provincial government. >> Enough of the lies, the deception, the gaslighting. >> A lot of the decisions the ucp and people inside the party are supporting have nothing to do with science or evidence or expertise. It's all fear and pandering. >> Roger: 500 people gathered outside calgary city hall commanding transparency and accountability. Some of the major issues including the alberta pension plan and attacks on education and healthcare. In a statement, the ucp's shane getson says the party supports albertans' rights to peaceful protest. >> Police are investigating and searching after a small plane went down near squamish bc. Two people reportedly on board. The rcmp got an automatic crash notification from a smart phone on friday evening. The crash is in a remote area. Search and rescue crews and joint coordination centre in victoria have been called in. The transportation safety board has not been deployed to the scene. It is coordinating with police and the bc coroner's service. >> The death toll from that massive landslide in papua new guinea is now more than 670.

>>> The U.N. says the updated death toll follows the discovery of 100 homes buried in the debris on top of the 60 they knew had been buried. Local officials put the death toll at 100. It soared. Over 5 bodies have been recovered. The national government may ask for more international assistance. According to officials renewed heavy rains triggered flash floods in afghanistan. At least 15 people are dead there including two parents ands their 8 children in the northeast of the country. The unusually heavy seasonal rains have been wreaking havoc on all parts of the country killing hundreds of people and destroying property and crops. It comes on the heels of floods that killed at least 70 people in april. >>> Coming up, why more and more health experts are raising concerns about an infection thought to be a near thing of the past.

Syphilis cases are skyrocketing especially among newborns nearly a decade after it had been eradicated among infants. Ctv's allison bamford explains. >> Reporter: inside this regina clinic nurses are screening patients for sexually transmitted infections and a simple blood test can catch one of saskatchewan's most rampant STIs. It's a really bad car crash we're watching. We can prevent it. >> Syphilis now a growing problem across north and south america. New data from the world health organization shows the continents make up 42% of new cases globally. Here in canada, saskatchewan posts the highest case rates among the provinces. >> It's not like we don't know how to identify or treat syphilis. We're having trouble controlling those numbers whether it's through not enough testing, barriers to access to testing or to care. >> Reporter: researchers say a rise in substance use, lack of awareness and stigma also play a role in transmission. >> The most devastating effect of syphilis in adults is congenital syphilis from the mother to the fetus. Transmission that could result in miscarriage or developmental issues to the baby. Congenital cases jumped 600% from 2018 to 2022. An alarming surge considering provinces like manitoba went decades recording a single case.

>> We didn't see syphilis for decades. And so there's a lot of physicians and healthcare providers who don't know what congenital syphilis looks like. It's important to educate them. >> Known itself the great imitator, syphilis can look like other infections and sometimes show no symptoms at all. Experts say prenatal care and routine testing should be a top priority because if caught early, typically a simple penicillin treatment can clear it right up. Allison bamford, ctv news, regina. >> Roger: the death toll from >> Roger: donald trump was booed repeatedly addressing the national libertarian party in washington. >> You should nominate me or at least vote for me. We should win together. >> Roger: people in the crowd shouted insults and heckled the U.S. president for covid-19 policies running up his multiple federal deficits and lying about his political record the insults continue. Trump eventually hit back saying, quote, you don't want to win. Trump asked for the end of their vote at the address.
