WATCH LIVE: CBC Vancouver News at 6 for Oct. 30 — Daylight Savings, Bus Rage, Fake Veteran


>>Mike: TONIGHT ON CBC VANCOUVER NEWS. >>Anita: A MATTER OF TIME. BC PAVES THE WAY TOWARDS PERMANENT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. >>>ALSO …>>Mike: DISTURBING VIDEO SHOWING A MAN SPITTING ON A TRANSLINK BUS DRIVER. AND …>>ALL THE STUDENTS, INCLUDING THE TEACHERS, ARE LEARNING MORE ABOUT OUR WAYS OF KNOWING, BEING, AND DOING. >>Anita: WHY GRADUATION RATES FOR INDIGENOUS STUDENTS IN SEA-TO-SKY COUNTRY ARE SOARING. [♪♪♪]>>Announcer: THIS IS CBC VANCOUVER NEWS. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: GOOD EVENING. BRITISH COLUMBIANS WILL BE TURNING BACK THE CLOCKS THIS WEEKEND, BUT IT COULD BE ONE OF THE LAST TIMES WE HAVE TO DO THAT. >>Anita: TOMORROW THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT WILL INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO MOVE ON PERMANENT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. >>WE ENGAGED WITH THE PUBLIC. IT WAS THE MOST POPULAR PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT THAT HAS BEEN DONE, TO MY UNDERSTANDING, IN THE HISTORY OF THE PROVINCE, ACTUALLY. SO MANY PEOPLE WHO PARTICIPATED. SO THE PROPOSED LEGISLATION WILL BE BASED ON THAT ENGAGEMENT AND EVERYONE WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO SEE IT TOMORROW. >>Anita: MORE THAN 93% OF BRITISH COLUMBIANS WHO RESPONDED TO THE SURVEY SUPPORTED THE CHANGE, BUT THERE ARE STILL LOTS OF QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THE SWITCH WOULD ACTUALLY WORK. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: OUR PROVINCIAL AFFAIRS REPORTER, TANYA FLETCHER, IS LIVE IN VICTORIA TONIGHT WITH MORE ON THIS.>>Anita: TANYA, THIS IS FAR FROM A DONE DEAL. SO WHEN COULD THIS ACTUALLY HAPPEN?>>Reporter: ANITA, WE DO KNOW IT WILL NOT BE IN TIME FOR THIS WEEKEND. SO, YES, YOU STILL WILL HAVE TO FALL BACK COME THIS SUNDAY MORNING. BUT BEYOND THAT, IT’S UNCLEAR THE TIMELINE OF WHEN THE PROVINCE WILL DECIDE TO ACTIVATE THIS LEGISLATION ONCE IT IS PASSED. NOW, KEEP IN MIND, IT’S ENABLING LEGISLATION. THAT BASICALLY MEANS THAT IT UNLOCKS THE LEGAL DOOR TO EVENTUALLY BRING IN PERMANENT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. KEEP IN MIND, THOUGH, THE PREMIER HAS SUGGESTED IN THE PAST THAT THE WEST COAST MOVE UNIFORMLY, SO WE ALL MOVE AS ONE, ALL THE JURISDICTIONS. BUT WE DO KNOW AS WELL THAT HE SAYS CONSISTENCY IS CRITICAL IN KEEPING WITH OUR ECONOMIES ALL UP AND DOWN THE WEST COAST. AND SO HE HAS TALKED WITH HIS COUNTERPART IN THE YUKON. RECENTLY WENT UP THERE. THEY ARE ON BOARD AS ARE WASHINGTON STATE, OREGON, AND CALIFORNIA. HOWEVER, THOSE U.S. STATES WOULD STILL NEED CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL, AND SO IT IS HUNG UP NOW AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL IN THE STATES. SO IT’S UNCLEAR WHETHER BC WILL ULTIMATELY DECIDE TO WAIT FOR THEM IN THE LONG RUN, AS JOHN HORGAN HAS PREVIOUSLY SUGGESTED. AND WE DO KNOW, THOUGH, AS FAR AS BC’S LEGISLATION THAT IT WILL ALSO INTRODUCE A NEW PERMANENT TIME ZONE, AND IT WILL BE CALLED FORMALLY PACIFIC TIME. KEEP IN MIND, SOME PARTS OF BC WE KNOW NORTHERN BC, THE EAST KOOTENAYS, ARE ON MOUNTAIN TIME, SO THIS LEGISLATION WILL NOT AFFECT THEM. THEY WON’T SEE ANY CHANGES. BEYOND THAT, THOUGH, WE DO KNOW THIS IS A SLAM DUNK MOVE BY THE BC GOVERNMENT. A VERY POPULIST MOVE. WE’LL HOPE TO SEE SOME OF THE DETAILS TOMORROW IN THE TABLED LEGISLATION.>>Mike: THANKS. >>Anita: TO A DISTURBING INCIDENT CAUGHT ON CAMERA NOW. AN ANGRY PASSENGER ON A BUS. >>Mike: IT’S THE KIND OF THING THE DRIVERS’ UNION SAYS HAPPENS ALL TOO OFTEN AND AS JOHN HERNANDEZ REPORTS, IT’S WHY THEY ARE PUSHING FOR BETTER WORKING CONDITIONS.>>Reporter: THE CHAOTIC SCENE UNFOLDED QUICKLY. THIS VIDEO TAKEN BY A PASSENGER SHOWS AN IRATE MAN AGGRESSIVELY KICKING AT THE BUS DOOR, THEN SPITTING AT THE DRIVER. IT HAPPENED YESTERDAY AT THIS BUS STOP IN BURNABY. THE MAN SHOWN IN THE VIDEO GOT ONBOARD JUST DOWN THE ROAD. HE WALKED RIGHT UP TO THE FRONT OF THE BUS.>>THERE IS A RED LINE ON THE GROUND, KIND OF ENCROACHES INTO THE OPERATOR’S SPACE. HE HAD GONE UP AND PAST THAT. BUS OPERATOR HAD ASKED HIM TO BACK OFF. THAT PERSON REFUSED. THEY STAYED RIGHT AT THE FRONT OF THE BUS. >>Reporter: THE BUS DRIVER PULLED OVER HERE, ASKING THE PASSENGER TO LEAVE RIGHT BEFORE THE VIOLENT OUTBURST. >>WHETHER YOU ARE A TEACHER, A NURSE, A BUS OPERATOR OR ANY OTHER OCCUPATION, YOU DON’T DESERVE TO BE ASSAULTED WHEN YOU ARE JUST COMING TO WORK AND ATTEMPTING TO DO YOUR JOB. >>Reporter: POLICE ARE STILL SEARCHING FOR THE SUSPECT WHO COULD BE FACING ASSAULT AND MISCHIEF CHARGES. MEANWHILE, THE TIMING OF THIS INCIDENT COMES AS WORKING CONDITIONS ARE A STICKING POINT IN NEGOTIATIONS.>>IT’S ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE, AND WE CERTAINLY HOPE THE DRIVER IS OKAY. >>Reporter: UNIFOR SAYS IT’S ONE OF THE MAJOR REASONS WHY THEY SERVED A STRIKE NOTICE EARLIER THIS WEEK. TODAY OFFICIALS MEANT WITH THE COAST MOUNTAIN BUS COMPANY AS TALKS CONTINUE.>>IT’S NOT SIMPLY DRIVING THE BUS. IT’S DEALING WITH THE PUBLIC AND PEOPLE WHO ARE IRATE BECAUSE THEY CAN’T GET ON A BUS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN PASSED. AND, YOU KNOW, THAT’S — AS HORRIFIC AS THAT INCIDENT IS, WE HAVE SEEN MUCH, MUCH WORSE. WE HAVE SEEN ASSAULTS INCREASING. WE HAVE SEEN SOME MEMBERS PUT IN HOSPITAL AND UNFORTUNATELY SOME MEMBERS HAVE NEVER COME BACK TO WORK. >>Reporter: SINCE JANUARY, THERE HAVE BEEN MORE THAN 70 ASSAULTS ON BUS DRIVERS IN METRO VANCOUVER. IN A STATEMENT, THE COAST MOUNTAIN BUS COMPANY SAID IT’S WORKING TO INSTALL PROTECTIVE BARRIERS INSIDE ALL OF ITS BUSES. BUT WORKERS ALSO WANT HIGHER WAGES, BETTER BENEFITS, AND MORE BUSES ON THE ROAD. IF THE TWO SIDES CAN’T COME TO AN AGREEMENT BY TOMORROW, WORKERS WILL GO ON A LIMITED STRIKE ON FRIDAY. JOHN HERNANDEZ, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Anita: AN 18-YEAR-OLD MAN IS IN HOSPITAL WITH LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES AFTER BEING HIT BY A CAR IN BURNABY THIS MORNING. THE MAN WAS NOT IN A CROSSWALK WHEN HE WAS HIT JUST AFTER 7 A.M. AT 10TH AVENUE AND 18TH STREET. THE DRIVER OF THE CAR STAYED ON SCENE AND WAS NOT INJURED. BURNABY RCMP ARE INVESTIGATING BUT ARE REMINDING PEDESTRIANS TO WEAR REFLECTIVE CLOTHING AND WAIT UNTIL THE CARS HAVE COMPLETELY STOPPED BEFORE CROSSING. >>Mike: A FORMER EMPLOYEE OF A BC-BASED EXPEDITION CRUISE COMPANY SAYS SHE IS OWED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. >>Anita: MISSING WAGES ARE JUST ONE OF SEVERAL PROBLEMS PLAGUING ONE OCEAN EXPEDITIONS. >>Mike: AS ANDREA ROSS REPORTS, THE COMPANY CANCELLED A TRIP LAST WEEK, LEAVING PASSENGERS STUCK IN ARGENTINA. >>A LOT OF DETAIL ABOUT WHY THEY ARE NOT PAYING US. >>Reporter: FOR CARO ST. JEAN, WORKING ON A CRUISE SHIP TO ANTARCTICA SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME. >>I HAVE WANTED TO GO TO ANTARCTICA SINCE I WAS REALLY YOUNG. I LOOKED AT DOING ANTARCTICA STUDIES AS A DEGREE AT UNIVERSITY. >>Reporter: A CHANCE TO SEE PENGUINS UP CLOSE WHILE WORKING ON A SHIP. >>THE CHANCE TO GO AND THE CHANCE TO GET PAID TO GO TO MY DREAM DESTINATION AND CONQUER MY SEVENTH CONTINENT WAS PRETTY AMAZING. >>Reporter: INSTEAD THE WORK TRIP LEFT THE VANCOUVER WOMAN SADDLED WITH DEBT. MORE THAN SIX MONTHS AFTER COMPLETING HER CONTRACT, SHE IS STILL WAITING TO BE PAID BY THE BC COMPANY.>>I’M OWED 6400 U.S. DOLLARS, WHICH ISN’T THAT MUCH COMPARED TO SOME OF THE STAFF WHO ARE STILL OWED MUCH MORE THAN THAT. >>Reporter: THE LIGHTS ARE OUT AND NO ONE IS INSIDE THE SQUAMISH OFFICE OF ONE OCEAN EXPEDITIONS. THE COMPANY ALSO DID NOT RESPOND TO MULTIPLE REQUESTS FOR COMMENT. BUT THE ALLEGED NON-PAYMENT OF WAGES IS JUST ONE OF SEVERAL PROBLEMS PLAGUING THE COMPANY. ONE OF ITS THREE SHIPS WAS DAMAGED LAST YEAR AFTER IT RAN AGROUND. THEN TWO SHIPS WERE RECALLED BY THE RUSSIAN OWNERS THIS SUMMER. IN MAY, ONE OCEANS’ REMAINING SHIP, THE RESOLUTE, WAS ARRESTED IN NUNAVUT FOR $100,000 OWED TO A NOVA SCOTIA-BASED COMPANY. IT WAS ARRESTED AGAIN IN HALIFAX LAST MONTH. LAST WEEK, ONE OCEAN EXPEDITIONS CANCELLED A PRICEY CRUISE TO ANTARCTICA. UP TO 140 GUESTS LEFT STRANDED IN ARGENTINA SCRAMBLING FOR ANSWERS. ONE OCEAN EXPEDITIONS OFFERED THEM THEIR CHOICE OF A FUTURE CRUISE BUT THERE WAS NO MENTION OF REFUNDS. ON TUESDAY, THE COMPANY POSTED A STATEMENT ON ITS FACEBOOK PAGE. IT DID NOT ADDRESS THE ILL-FATED CRUISE OR THE STAFF PAYMENT ISSUES. INSTEAD THE COMPANY ASKED FOR PATIENCE DURING A DIFFICULT PERIOD OF RESTRUCTURING. ST. JOHN SAYS ITS EMPLOYEES SHOULDN’T BE THE ONES FEELING THE PINCH.>>WE ARE THE ONES WHO MAKE THE EXPERIENCE ON THE BOATS ABOVE AND BEYOND, RIGHT? AND THEN TO NOT PAY THEM AND TO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THEM, I THINK, IS VERY POOR MANAGEMENT. >>Reporter: FOR NOW, THE EMPLOYEES REMAIN OUT OF POCKET. FOR PASSENGERS, DREAM VACATIONS SCUTTLED. ANDREA ROSS, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Mike: WELL, TRANSLINK INTRODUCED A NEW BUS TO ITS FLEET THIS MORNING. YES, YOU ARE SEEING DOUBLE. FIRST DOUBLE-DECKER BUS, THAT IS. IT’S ONE OF THE 32 DOUBLE-DECKERS THAT BEGAN SERVICE ON THE 620 BRIDGEPORT ROUTE TO TSAWWASSEN FERRY TERMINAL. THE SERVICE WILL BE EXPANDED OVER THE COMING MONS TO THE 301 TO 555 ROUTES. THE BUS HAS 87 SEATS, WHICH IS ALMOST DOUBLE THE CAPACITY OF A 40-FOOT BUS.>>Anita: A SURREY MAN WHO CLAIMED TO BE A HOMELESS VETERAN AND ACCEPTED HELP FROM LOCAL LEGIONS IS NOW BEING INVESTIGATED BY THE RCMP AS A FRAUDS, ACCUSED OF STEALING VALOUR. KENNETH JAMES FRENCH WAS FEATURED IN SEVERAL ARTICLES WEARING SERVICE MEDALS AND SHARING HIS STORY OF LIVING ON THE STREETS IN LANGLEY. TWO LEGIONS GAVE FRENCH MONEY FOR FOOD AND HE EVENTUALLY GOT SUBSIDIZED HOUSING BASED ON HIS STORY. BUT THE DETAILS OF HIS SERVICE DIDN’T ADD UP WITH OTHER LEGION MEMBERS AND THEIR COMPLAINTS PROMPTED AN INVESTIGATION BY THE RCMP AND MILITARY POLICE. A SEARCH WARRANT OBTAINED BY CBC NEWS SHOWS AUTHORITIES FOUND NO RECORD OF HIS SERVICE, BUT FRENCH MAINTAINS HIS STORY IS TRUE AND HE HAS YET TO BE CHARGED WITH ANYTHING. YOU CAN READ MORE ABOUT ALL OF THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST FRENCH INCLUDING THE DETAILS THAT SPURRED COMPLAINTS AGAINST HIM ON OUR WEBSITE cbc.ca/bc. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: WELL, PEOPLE LIVE ALONG THE PLANNED BROADWAY SUBWAY EXTENSION ARE GETTING A CLOSER LOOK AT THE DESIGN FOR THE LONG-AWAITED PROJECT. FIRST OF THREE POP-UP INFORMATION SESSIONS HAPPENED TODAY AT KITS NEIGHBOURHOOD HOUSE. THERE WAS INFORMATION ABOUT THE ROUTES, STATION LOCATIONS, AND TIMELINE FOR COMPLETION. IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR RESIDENTS TO GIVE THEIR TAKE ON THE PLANS. CONSTRUCTION IS EXPECTED TO START LATE NEXT YEAR WRAPPING UP FIVE YEARS FROM NOW. AND STAFF ARE ASSURING THE PUBLIC STEPS ARE BEING TAKEN TO KEEP TRAFFIC DISRUPTION TO A MINIMUM.>>SO WE’LL BE ENGAGING WITH BUSINESSES BEYOND WHAT WE HAVE ALREADY DONE THIS SUMMER. WE’RE GOING TO BE PROVIDING ACCESS TO ALL OF THE BUSINESSES AND THE MEDICAL FACILITIES ALONG THE CORRIDOR, AND WE’LL ALSO BE PROVIDING VISIBILITY AND SIGNAGE. SO CUSTOMERS AND PEOPLE THAT ARE COMING TO THEIR DOCTORS HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO SEE THAT THE BUSINESSES ARE OPEN WHILE THIS CONSTRUCTION IS HAPPENING. >>Mike: TODAY’S SESSION RUNS UNTIL 7:00. THERE ARE MORE ON NOVEMBER 2ND AND 7TH. THOSE UNABLE TO ATTEND CAN VISIT A GOVERNMENT WEBSITE FOR THE PROJECT TO LEAVE THEIR COMMENTS ONLINE.>>Anita: WELL, COLD SHELTER SPACE IS BEING MADE AVAILABLE DURING EXTREME WEATHER ALERTS AS WAS THE CASE LAST NIGHT IN VANCOUVER. EXTRA SHELTER SPACES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE FOUR LOCATIONS ON YOUR SCREEN. FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, DIRECTIONS YOUTH SERVICES CENTRE, THE EVELYN SAILOR CENTRE, AND THE SALVATION ARMY BELL REST KEN HOUSE. THE CITY IS ASKING ANYONE SLEEPING OUTSIDE TO FIND SPACE INDOORS. ANYONE LOOKING FOR SPACE TO STAY CAN CALL 211 FOR MORE INFORMATION. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: FIRST CHECK ON THE WEATHER FORECAST. PEOPLE ARE COMING UP TO YOU TODAY WONDERING HOW THE KIDS ARE GOING TO MAKE OUT TOMORROW NIGHT.>>Brett: I FEEL LIKE A VERY POPULAR GUY RIGHT NOW BECAUSE NOT ONLY ARE PEEPING COMING TO ASK ME — PEOPLE ARE COMING TO ASK THE QUESTIONS, BUT GOOD NEWS FOR THEM AS WELL IS A NICE WAY TO RETURN THE FAVOUR. HALLOWEEN IS UPON US, AND THE FORECAST IS LOOKING GREAT. LOTS OF CLEAR SKIES AND DEFINITELY NO RAIN IN THE FORECAST. SO THAT IS VERY, VERY GOOD NEWS FOR MANY, I’M SURE. LET’S LOOK RIGHT NOW AT OUR CURRENT TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE REGION. STILL YET AGAIN ANOTHER KIND OF CHILLY EVENING. IT’S FUNNY WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN, YOU REALLY START TO FEEL THE TEMPERATURE DROP MUCH MORE QUICKLY AT THIS POINT. WE’RE LOOKING AT TEMPERATURES ANYWHERE BETWEEN 6 AND 8°, LARGELY ACROSS THE LOWER MAINLAND. AND I DID WANT TO SHOW YOU A LOOK AT SOME OF OUR SATELLITE IMAGERY. IT’S BEEN MOSTLY CLEAR FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS, BUT TODAY WE GOT A FEW CLOUDS COMING THROUGH INTO THE AFTERNOON, AND GENERALLY THIS TREND IS GOING TO BE MOSTLY THE CASE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. NOT AGAIN LOOKING AT ANY RAIN IN THE FORECAST FROM THESE CLOUDS, BUT DEFINITELY SOMETHING TO BE KEEPING IN MIND. IN TERMS OF THE OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURES TONIGHT, IT IS AGAIN GOING DOWN TO ABOUT THE FREEZING MARK, DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE. SO CLOSER TO, SAY, BURNABY, RICHMOND, NEW WEST, AND SURREY, IT’S GOING TO BE JUST ABOVE, LIKE — ABOUT 1° OR SO. AND THEN CLOSER TO THE WATER, WE’RE GOING TO GET A MODERATING EFFECT AND THAT’S GOING TO KEEP THOSE TEMPERATURES A LITTLE BIT WARMER. BUT TOMORROW, FOR HALLOWEEN, THROUGHOUT THE DAY, IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT. WE’RE LOOKING AT LOTS OF SUNSHINE AND TEMPERATURES A LITTLE BIT ON THE COOL SIDE, BUT IN GENERAL, ANYWHERE BETWEEN 9 AND 10°.>>Anita: THANKS, BRETT. >>Brett: YOU ARE WELCOME.>>Mike: WELL, THE REMARKABLE SUCCESS STORY TONIGHT FROM ONE OF BC’S SMALLER SCHOOL DISTRICTS. >>Anita: NEW STATS FROM THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT CONFIRM THE NUMBER OF INDIGENOUS STUDENTS GRADUATING IN THE SEA-TO-SKY REGION IS AT A RECORD HIGH. IN JUST ONE DECADE GOING FROM LESS THAN 40% TO ALMOST 100%. >>Mike: I WENT THERE RECENTLY TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO GET THOSE RESULTS.>>Reporter: THE PATH TO GRADUATION BEGINS HERE. BUT UNTIL RECENTLY IN THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT, THAT PATH WASN’T AN EASY ONE, ESPECIALLY FOR INDIGENOUS STUDENTS.>>WE LEARNED ABOUT HOW IT USED TO BE, AND WE HAVE SEEN HOW IT IS NOW. SO A LOT HAS CHANGED, AND I THINK IT’S — IT’S JUST MAINLY THAT THERE IS WAY MORE SUPPORT NOW FOR STUDENTS.>>Reporter: THAT SUPPORT FOR ALL STUDENTS AND A SWEEPING CURRICULUM CHANGE HAD A PROFOUND IMPACT HERE. >>EVERYBODY IN THIS DISTRICT HAS A VERY CLEAR MESSAGE THAT THIS IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT, IT’S SOMETHING YOU NEED TO LEARN ABOUT. IT’S A PRIORITY. >>Reporter: IN 2009 THE GRADUATION RATE FOR INDIGENOUS STUDENTS IN THE SEA-TO-SKY DISTRICT WAS JUST 35%. LAST YEAR, THAT NUMBER SKYROCKETED TO 95%. THE PROVINCIAL AVERAGE FOR INDIGENOUS STUDENTS: 66%.>>I THINK OUR RESULTS ARE SHOWING THAT INDIGENIZING OUR WAY OF BEING AND LEARNING FROM COMMUNITY HOW TO DO THAT, IT IS — THOSE ARE THE STRATEGIES THAT WE’RE DOING DIFFERENTLY THAN WE USED TO DO. >>Reporter: IN DEVELOPING THE NEW STRATEGY, THE OFFICIALS COLLABORATED WITH TEACHERS, STUDENTS, PRINCIPALS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS. IT MEANT BIG CHANGES IN CLASSROOMS.>>THE MORE THAT WE SUPPORT LEARNING THROUGH AN INDIGENOUS LENS IN EVERY CLASSROOM SO THAT THE STUDENTS WHO WALK IN FEEL LIKE THEY ARE CONNECTED TO THE LAND THAT THEY ARE LEARNING ON, THAT THEY UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF THAT LAND, AND A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE FIRST PEOPLES ONLY BUILDS TO ENHANCE THEIR OWN LEARNING STORY.>>Reporter: TEACHING INTERESTING SUBJECTS AND REAL-LIFE PROBLEM SOLVING, ALL PART OF THE NEW WAY OF LEARNING.>>ALL OF THE STUDENTS INCLUDING THE TEACHERS ARE LEARNING MORE ABOUT OUR WAYS OF KNOWING, BEING, AND DOING, AND I THINK THAT IT INSTILLS A SENSE OF PRIDE IN OUR ABORIGINAL STUDENTS, AND IT INSTILLS RESPECT FOR OUR CULTURE AND THOSE WHO AREN’T ABORIGINAL, A BETTER WAY OF UNDERSTANDING, YOU KNOW, WHO WE ARE. >>Reporter: THE NEW CURRICULUM HAS RESULTED IN HIGHER GRADUATION RATES ACROSS THE BOARD IN THE DISTRICT. LAST YEAR, IT WAS 97%.>>IF YOU WANT TO BE CHALLENGED, YOU CAN. AND IT’S JUST A LOT NICER BECAUSE WE DO HAVE A LOT OF SUPPORT TOO. >>Reporter: AND WHILE THESE STUDENTS ARE A FEW YEARS AWAY FROM GETTING THEIR DIPLOMAS, THEY ARE KEENLY AWARE OF WHAT THE CHANGES TO LEARNING HAVE MEANT HERE.>>I THINK IT’S GREAT BECAUSE EVERY OTHER PERSON WHO GRADUATES, THAT MEANS MAYBE OTHER PEOPLE WILL BE MORE DETERMINED TO GRADUATE BECAUSE THEY SEE THE SUCCESS RATE.>>Mike: YEAH, AS WE SAID, THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT. 35% GRADUATION RATE BACK IN 2009. >>Anita: M’MM-HMM. >>Mike: 73% AS THEY MOVED FORWARD IN 2013. AND THEN ALMOST 100%, REALLY, RIGHT NOW. >>Anita: THE PATTERN GOING UP.>>Mike: STUCK WITH THE PROGRAM, STUCK WITH THE CURRICULUM, AND IT’S REALLY PAID OFF.>>Anita: GOOD STORY, MIKE. >>Mike: THERE YOU GO. >>Anita: A REMINDER, YOU CAN WATCH THIS NEWSCAST LIVE ON CBC GEM. THAT’S THE FREE APP. AND YOU CAN ALSO FIND OTHER CBC PROGRAMMING THERE.>>Mike: CBC VANCOUVER ALSO ON FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE, AND INSTAGRAM. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: NEW NATIONAL STUDY IS RAISING CONCERN ABOUT THE POLLUTION MILLIONS OF US ARE BREATHING IN FROM ROADWAY TRAFFIC. COMING UP, THE ONE TYPE OF VEHICLE THAT IS ESPECIALLY CAUSE FOR CONCERN. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: AND IF YOU ARE WATCHING ONLINE, THANKS SO MUCH FOR STAYING WITH US DURING THIS THREE-MINUTE COMMERCIAL BREAK TONIGHT. WELL, BESIDES ACTUALLY MAKING OUR MONEY, THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT IS SHOWCASING ART AS WELL. >>Mike: THEY ROUTINELY HIRE YOUNG ARTISTS TO DESIGN SPECIAL COINS AND AS WE HEAR TONIGHT FROM CBC’S SANDRA UGMA, A YOUNG OJIBWAY WOMAN USED THE CHANCE TO HONOUR HER GREAT-UNCLE. >>Reporter: MARY MCPHERSON IS DELIGHTED TO LEARN HOW HER DRAWING WAS TURNED INTO A SHINY NEW COIN. USING SOPHISTICATED SOFTWARE MASTER ENGRAVER MATT BOWEN FINE-TUNED HER DESIGN INTO A 3D MODEL, ALL SET TO BE PRESSED INTO A PIECE OF SILVER. SOMETHING THE YOUNG ARTIST NEVER DREAMED WAS A POSSIBILITY.>>I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FASCINATED WITH THE ARTWORK ON THEM. BUT I NEVER REALLY PICTURED MYSELF HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO BE ONE OF THE ARTISTS, TO HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE MY ARTWORK THROUGH A COIN. >>Reporter: THREE YEARS AGO, THE UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA STUDENT WAS LIVING IN THUNDER BAY, CREATING ELABORATE CHARCOAL SKETCHES BASED ON STORIES AND MYTHS OF INDIGENOUS CULTURE AND POSTING THEM ONLINE. THE PROJECTS CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF THE MANAGER OF THE PROJECT, WHO CONTACTED HER ABOUT DESIGNING COINS. >>NOTHING THAT ENTERED MY HEAD AT THE TIME. SO I WAS VERY SURPRISED.>>Reporter: DEROCHIERS SPENDS TIME SCOURING SOCIAL MEDIA FOR NEW TALENT. HE SAYS MOST ARTISTS ARE UNAWARE OF WHAT THE MINT CAN OFFER. A BRAND-NEW SHINY CANVAS FOR HER ART AND A VENUE TO A NEW MARKET OF AVID COIN COLLECTORS.>>WE LOVE NEW ARTISTS, AND WE HAVE BEEN IN THE LAST FEW YEARS INTRODUCING AS MANY NEW ARTISTS AS WE CAN TO — TO TRY TO ENCOURAGE THE NEXT GENERATION AS WELL. >>AT THE TIME MY UNCLE RUDOLPH …>>Reporter: TODAY, MARY MCPHERSON HAS DESIGNED TWO COINS FOR THE MINT. MOST RECENTLY THIS ONE, COMMEMORATING THE 1944 BATTLE OF THE SHELT. SHE DREW INSPIRATION FROM RIFLEMAN RUDOLPH MCPHERSON, WHO FOUGHT AND DIED IN THE WAR. IN A TOUCHING TRIBUTE, A DRAWING BASED ON HER GREAT-UNCLE, ON OJIBWAY-CANADIAN SOLDIER IS ON THE FACE OF THE COIN. >>IT ALLOWED ME TO FEEL A SENSE OF GRATITUDE AND RESPECT AND PROFOUND APPRECIATION.>>THANK YOU.>>Reporter: FROM A DRAWING TO A 3D DESIGN TO ACTUAL ENGRAVING ITSELF. A WORK OF ART, A PIECE OF HISTORY, AND A COIN FOR THE AGES. CBC NEWS, OTTAWA.>>Anita: THAT WAS INCREDIBLE.>>Mike: END UP ON A LOT OF COLLECTIONS, FOR SURE. >>Anita: M’MM-HMM. YOU A BIG COLLECTOR?>>Mike: I USED TO BE. STILL GOT A FEW. OH, YEAH, THAT ONE. I REMEMBER SAVING THAT WAY BACK WHEN. >>Anita: ANY COOL — >>Mike: LIKE, A $5 COIN. >>Anita: OH.>>Mike: SOMEWHERE. I’LL DIG IT OUT. I’LL BRING IT IN TOMORROW. >>Anita: I’LL WAIT FOR IT. >>Mike: ALL RIGHT. STAY WITH US. WE’LL BE BACK IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS WITH SOME STORIES MAKING HEADLINES IN THE WORLD OF CLIMATE CHANGE. [♪♪♪] [♪♪♪]>>Anita: A NEW NATIONAL STUDY IS RAISING CONCERN ABOUT THE POLLUTION MILLIONS OF CANADIANS ARE BREATHING IN FROM ROADWAY TRAFFIC. NEARLY A THIRD OF THE COUNTRY’S POPULATION LIVES NEAR MAJOR ARTERIES. >>Mike: RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND OUT MORE ABOUT THE PARTICLES THAT TRAFFIC IS SPEWING. AND AS THOMAS DAIGLE REPORTS, THEY SAY ONE TYPE OF VEHICLE IS ESPECIALLY CAUSE FOR CONCERN.>>Reporter: EVERY TIME ANGELA SERINIKI LIVES HER DOWNTOWN TORONTO HOME, SHE COMES FACE TO FACE WITH A GIANT. THE BUSY GARDINER EXPRESSWAY. AND ALL THE POLLUTION THAT COMES WITH IT.>>I HAVE TO GET FACIALS MORE IF I LIVE IN TORONTO. I DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT MY LUNGS LOOK LIKE ‘CAUSE IT’S JUST KIND OF, LIKE, SCARY TO THINK ABOUT.>>Reporter: YES, THIS CITY MAY BE ALL BUILT UP AROUND SUCH BUSY ARTE ARTERIES, BUT TORONTO IS NOT ALONE. ACROSS CANADA, MORE THAN 10 MILLION PEOPLE LIVE WITHIN 250 METRES OF A MAJOR ROAD, AND THAT’S CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE AFFECTED BY VEHICLE EMISSIONS. SO SAYS A NEW NATIONAL STUDY LED BY PROFESSOR GREG EVANS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO.>>SOME OF THESE INSTRUMENTS COLLECT ONCE EVERY SECOND AND WE HAVE BEEN COLLECTING DATA FOR TEN YEARS.>>Reporter: THEY MAY NOT LOOK LIKE MUCH, BUT THOSE DEVICES HERE AND IN VANCOUVER ARE MEASURING EMISSIONS FROM THE TRAFFIC GOING BY.>>EVERY TIME WE BREATHE, WE’RE INHALING ABOUT 5 MILLION OF THESE PARTICLES.>>Reporter: EVANS CALLS IT A SOUP OF POLLUTANTS, FROM NITROGEN OXIDE TO SOOT, PLUS MICROSCOPIC PARTICLES FROM BRAKE AND TIRE WEAR. THIS PUBLIC HEALTH EXPERT SAYS A FARM MAY BE INVISIBLE, BUT …>>THE PUBLIC HEALTH IMPACT COMES BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE EXPOSED SO MANY DAYS OF THE YEAR. >>Reporter: RESEARCHERS SAY PART OF THE PROBLEM IS CANADIANS ARE BUYING MORE PICKUPS AND SUVs, THOUGH THE WORST EMITTERS ARE SAID TO BE BIG DIESEL TRUCKS. THEIR USE FUELLED BY THE GROWTH OF ONLINE SHOPPING. TAKE THIS ROAD IN VANCOUVER. RESEARCHERS FOUND IT’S JUST AS POLLUTED AS A MUCH BUSIER HIGHWAY BECAUSE OF TRUCK TRAFFIC.>>JUST A SMALL PORTION OF THE TRUCKS THAT ARE OPERATED POORLY, POORLY MAINTAINED, OR HAVE EVEN BEEN TAMPERED WITH, AND IF WE CAN GET THOSE OFF THE ROADS, THAT’LL MAKE A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT.>>Reporter: FOR THOSE LIVING NEAR MAJOR ROADS, THERE IS NO EASY FIX. WHEN JUST STEPPING OUTSIDE MEANS BREATHING IN POLLUTION. THOMAS DAIGLE, CBC NEWSICS TORONTO.>>Anita: A PUSH TONIGHT FROM CANADIAN FARMERS URGING CONSUMERS TO BUY MORE LOCAL PRODUCE. CONCERN OUR VEGETABLES ARE BEING WASTED AS STORES BRING IN MORE IMPORTS. >>Mike: AS THIS REPORT EXPLAINS, FARMERS HOPE PUBLIC PRESSURE WILL HELP. >>Reporter: THE GREENHOUSE INDUSTRY IS GROWING THROUGHOUT SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO. THAT MEANS MORE LOCALLY GROWN TOMATOES, PEPPERS, CUCUMBERS, WITH MANY PRODUCING ALMOST YEAR-ROUND. YET AT LOCAL STORES, YOU CAN OFTEN FIND SOME OF THE SAME PRODUCE COMING IN FROM THE U.S. OR MEXICO, AND SOME LOCAL GROWERS SAY THEY ARE FEELING SHUT OUT.>>IT’S FRUSTRATING BECAUSE THIS IS OUR LIVELIHOOD. WE LIVE, EAT, BREATHE THIS EVERY DAY. SO IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT OUR FARMERS. >>Reporter: VERBEEK TOOK TO FACEBOOK TO VOICE HER FRUSTRATION. IN A POST THAT HAS SINCE BEEN SHARED HUNDREDS OF TIMES. SHE SAYS FOR WEEKS NOW, THEIR PEPPERS AND TOMATOES HAVE NOT BEEN MOVING FROM THEIR WAREHOUSE, AND THEY HAVE BEEN FORCED TO GIVE PRODUCT AWAY AND TAKE SOME TO THE DUMP.>>I THINK IT’S BEEN NOTICED A BIT MORE AND MORE AS THE PRODUCE INDUSTRY IS PRODUCING MORE PRODUCTS. IS IT BEING SOMETHING THAT IS MORE OF A LOCAL ISSUE? WE’RE STARTING TO TEND TO BE THAT WAY. >>Reporter: CBC REACHED OUT TO STORES TO ASK THEM ABOUT HOW THEY PRIORITIZE LOCAL PRODUCTS. SOBEYS AND METROS SAID THEY ARE COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING LOCAL GROWERS, BUT VERBEEK SAYS STORES DON’T FACTOR IN THAT LOCAL PRODUCE IS AVAILABLE FOR MOST OF THE YEAR, NOT JUST THE SUMMER MONTHS.>>I WENT SHOPPING MYSELF TO FIND OUT WHAT LOCAL GROCERY STORES HAVE TO OFFER RIGHT NOW, AND I FOUND A MIXED BAG WITH TOMATOES. I FOUND ITEMS FROM CANADA, FROM THE U.S., AND FROM MEXICO AND RED PEPPERS THE SAME. FROM CANADA, FROM THE U.S., AND FROM MEXICO. AND OFTEN THESE CAN BE FOUND SIDE BY SIDE.>>Reporter: THE ONTARIO GREENHOUSE GROWERS ASSOCIATION SAID THE CONCERNS COME UP IN THE SPRING AND FALL. AND THAT IT’S TOUGH FOR RETAILERS TOO, BECAUSE THEY NEED TO HAVE PRODUCTS ON THE SHELVES YEAR-ROUND.>>YOU CANNOT BLAME RETAILERS FOR SOMETIMES HAVING A MIX-UP ON THE SHELF AT THESE TIMES OF THE YEAR. WE’RE IN THIS TRANSITION TIME NOW. I WILL TELL YOU THAT — THAT ONTARIO RETAILERS ARE INCREDIBLY GOOD, AT LEAST TO THE GREENHOUSE SECTOR. I CAN’T SPEAK FOR ALL OF AGRICULTURE. THEY ARE INCREDIBLY GOOD TO US.>>Reporter: IDEALLY, HE SAYS, DURING THESE MONTHS, RETAILERS SHOULD TRY TO CARRY BOTH LOCAL AND IMPORTED GOODS. THE VERBEEKS SAY ULTIMATELY IT’S UP TO CONSUMERS TO FORCE A CHANGE AND MAKE SURE THAT LOCAL FARMERS ARE BEING SUPPORTED. CBC NEWS, WINDSOR. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: AS FLAMES CONTINUE TO RIP THROUGH PARTS OF CALIFORNIA, THE FIRST EVER EXTREME RED FLAG WARNING. WHAT IT MEANS AFTER THE BREAK. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: HERE ARE SOME OF THE STORIES WE’RE FOLLOWING TONIGHT ON CBC VAOUFRZ NEWS. >>I’M OWED 6400 U.S. DOLLARS, WHICH ISN’T THAT MUCH COMPARED TO SOME OF THE STAFF WHO ARE STILL OWED MUCH MORE THAN THAT. >>Mike: EMPLOYEES NOT GETTING PAID AND CANCELLED TRIPS AND STRANDED CUSTOMERS. A BC CRUISE COMPANY, ONE OCEAN EXPEDITIONS, IS ASKING FOR PATIENCE SAYING ITS PROBLEMS ARE A SYMPTOM OF RESTRUCTURING. NOT EVERYONE IS BUYING THAT. >>Anita: VIDEO SHOWING A MAN KICKING IN A TRANSIT BUS DOOR AND THEN SPITTING ON THE BUS DRIVER. NOW POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR THE PERSON IN THE FOOTAGE. IT HAPPENED YESTERDAY AT A BUS STOP IN BURNABY. >>Mike: TOMORROW, THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT WILL INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO MOVE TOWARDS PERMANENT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. WE WILL STILL TURN BACK THE CLOCKS THIS SUNDAY, BUT IT COULD BE THE LAST TIME WE DO IT. THE BILL WOULD SEE THE CREATION OF A NEW NAME FOR THE PERMANENT TIME ZONE: PACIFIC TIME. BUT THERE ARE STILL MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THE SWITCH WOULD WORK. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: WELL, JUST NORTH OF LOS ANGELES BEFORE DAWN THIS MORNING, ANOTHER FIRE SPARKED AT WHAT OFFICIALS ARE SAYING WAS THE WORST POSSIBLE TIME.>>Anita: 7,000 HOMES ARE UNDER A MANDATORY EVACUATION ORDER. NICK IS IN THOUSAND OAKS, CALIFORNIA, AND SPOKE WITH PEOPLE JUST AFTER THEY WERE GIVEN WORD TO GET OUT. >>Reporter: THIS IS A NEW FIRE THAT BROKE OUT JUST EARLY THIS MORNING. I’M IN THE SIMI VALLEY JUST NORTH OF LOS ANGELES. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE FIRE IS BURNING OUT OF CONTROL ON THE HILLSIDES HERE. WHAT IS REALLY CONCERNING IS THE VERY STRONG WINDS. 100-KILOMETRE-AN-HOUR STRONG WINDS HAVE ARRIVED IN THE AREA. KIM THORNTON LIVES NEARBY. SHE SAYS SHE HAS LIVED THROUGH THESE FIRES BEFORE AND KNOWS WHAT’S AT STAKE. >>I’M WORRIED ABOUT PEOPLE LOSING WHAT THEY HAVE WORKED THEIR ENTIRE LIVES FOR, AND THEIR MEMORIES AND THINGS LIKE THAT AND THE HOMES AND LIVES. ALL THIS OTHER STUFF CAN BE REPLACED.>>Reporter: AS I DROVE CLOSER TO THE AREA BEING EVACUATED, THIS IS WHAT I SAW. IN THOUSAND OAKS, THE EVACUATION WAS UNDERWAY. JOE HAD ONE LAST LOAD. >>JUST TAKING A FEW THINGS THAT MEAN A LITTLE BIT, ESPECIALLY TO MY WIFE AND MY KIDS. JUST IN CASE THE HOUSE — I HOPE WILL NOT BURN DOWN.>>GOOD LUCK, GUYS.>>Reporter: I’M IN THE MANDATORY EVACUATION ZONE. NOW, THIS IS THE HOME OF THE STONE MAKERS. THEY HAVE THREE TRUCKS HERE. PACKED. THEY SAY IF THEY SEE THE FIRE, THEY ARE READY TO GO, BUT FOR NOW, THEY ARE FOCUSSED ON SAVING THEIR HOUSE. CARLY JUST DOESN’T WANT TO LEAVE.>>WHAT DOES THE HOUSE MEAN TO YOU?>>WELL, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE LIVED HERE FOR OVER 20 YEARS. I HAVE LIVED IN THOUSAND OAKS ALL MY LIFE.

SAVE THE HOUSE. THAT’S THE MAIN THING. I DIDN’T THINK ABOUT MYSELF. >>Reporter: HIS CURRENT HOME IS FINE, BUT SIGNS OF THE ONGOING WILDFIRE FIGHT ARE EASY TO SEE IN THE SKIES OVERHEAD.>>DID HE GET OUT OKAY?>>Reporter: ON THE GROUND LIFE-LONG NEIGHBOURS CHECK IN ON EACH OTHER. >>OH, GOD. I TELL YA. >>Reporter: EVEN AS THE THREAT OF FIRE HERE APPEARS TO BE WANING, OTHER WORRIES ARE TOP OF MIND.>>WE HAVE SPENT THE LAST THREE OR FOUR DAYS PROTECTING OUR HOUSES AND THE PROPERTY AND A FEW OF THE NEIGHBOURS, AND THE MAIN CONCERN RIGHT NOW IS THE PEOPLE LOOTING.>>Reporter: OFF ON PATROL, HE’LL CONTINUE TO MAKE HIS ROUNDS UNTIL HIS NEIGHBOURS RETURN. DEMOSTENE IS ON THE LOOKOUT TOO, BUT FOR HOT SPOTS, NOT INTRUDERS, RELIEVED THAT THE WORST MAY BE OVER FOR THIS YEAR AT LEAST. >>LIFETIME FIRES. BUT NOW WE GET THEM EVERY YEAR. USUALLY YOU SEE ONE IN A LIFETIME. NOW WE’RE GETTING THEM EVERY OTHER YEAR.>>Reporter: THOUGHTS OF NEXT YEAR CREEPING IN BEFORE THIS YEAR’S FIRES ARE EVEN FULLY OUT. ERIN COLLINS, CBC NEWS, NEAR CHEMTOWN, CALIFORNIA. >>Anita: TO BRETT SODERHOLM NOW. BRETT, ONE OF BEEN WATCHING THE FIRES IN CALIFORNIA TONIGHT. WHAT’S THE LATEST?>>Brett: YEAH, IT IS SOME GOOD NEWS FOR THE NORTH. EXCELLENT TO HEAR THAT. BUT DOWN TOWARD THE SOUTH AND CLOSER TO L.A., STILL A VERY GUSTY EVENING AND THAT TREND WILL CONTINUE RIGHT THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD. THIS IS A LIVE LOOK AT OUR SUSTAINED WINDS IN AND AROUND LOS ANGELES. YOU CAN SEE THAT THE CITY PROPER REALLY ONLY LOOKING AT SUSTAINED WINDS OF ABOUT 20 KILOMETRES AN HOUR. BUT YOU GO NORTH AND WEST AND YOU GO INTO WHAT’S KNOWN AS VENTURA COUNTY, AND THAT’S WHERE THE WINDS ARE GUSTING QUITE STRONG. SUSTAINED WINDS RIGHT NOW AFTER 45 KILOMETRES AN HOUR. NOW THAT SAID, EARLIER ON IN THE AFTERNOON, THE WHOLE REGION SURROUNDING L.A., WE DID SEE A FEW GUSTS CRACK THAT 100-KILOMETRE-AN-HOUR MARK AND CERTAINLY THAT WAS ADDING FUEL TO THOSE FIRES. AND WHEN WE LOOK AT THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, L.A. AND SANTA MONICA ITSELF ARE QUITE CALM BUT ONCE AGAIN, MOSTLY I’M WATCHING VENTURA COUNTY. THE WINDS WON’T SUBSIDING UNTIL THE END OF THURSDAY.>>Anita: THANK YOU, BRETT. >>Brett: YOU ARE WELCOME.>>Mike: 6:35 ON THIS WEDNESDAY EVENING. A LIVE LOOK AT BC PLACE. ALL DRESSED UP, LOOKING KIND OF SPOOKTACULAR FROM THE CBC VANCOUVER STUDIOS. AT HAMILTON AND WEST GEORGIA. ANOTHER CRISP, RELATIVELY CLEAR DAY ON THE SOUTH COAST, AND HALLOWEEN IS LOOKING PRETTY GOOD TOO. WHERE WILL THE LITTLE GHOSTS AND GOBLINS GO? WE’LL TELL YOU NEXT. [♪♪♪] [♪♪♪]>>Mike: WELL, PUMPKIN GROWERS ACROSS BC HAVE HAD CHALLENGES THIS SEASON WITH RAIN AND EARLY RIPENING CROPS. THOUGH THERE HAS BEEN JUST ENOUGH TO SUPPLY GROCERY STORES. GROWERS SAY THERE HASN’T BEEN MUCH TO SPARE PRODUCT. CROPS THAT RIPENED EARLY ARE SPOILING, AND SHORTAGES IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND THE PRAIRIE PROVINCES AREN’T HELPING.>>Anita: WELL, THERE MAY BE A SHORTAGE OF PUMPKINS, BUT THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF CANDY, IF YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT NEIGHBOURHOOD, OF COURSE. SO HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR BEST TRICK-OR-TREATING OPTIONS ARE? WELL, IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT, THERE IS AN EXPERT FOR THAT. OUR VERY OWN TARA CARMEN. YOU HAVE BEEN TRACKING TRICK AND TREATERS AND CANDY HOT SPOTS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS NOW. WHERE ARE THE PLACES TO BE HALLOWEEN NIGHT?>>THAT REALLY DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU ARE AFTER, ANITA. IF YOU ARE AFTER THE EXPERIENCE, IF YOU WANT TO GO TO THE REALLY COOL NEIGHBOURHOODS WITH THE GRAVEYARDS IN THE FRONT-YARD AND THE MOTION PROJECTORS ON THE SIDES OF THE HOUSES, ALL THE BIG PURPLE DOTS. THESE ARE THE MORE THAN 300 TREAT COUNT PLACES. SO TRINITY STREET, EAST VANCOUVER KNOWN FOR ITS CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS, ALSO VERY ACTIVE ON HALLOWEEN WITH THE — WITH THE ANIMATED DISPLAYS AND THE SOUNDS AND THE HAUNTED HOUSES. ACTUALLY, THE MOST TRICK OR TREATERS THAT WERE REPORTED THE LAST TIME WE DID THIS WERE IN DOUGLAS PARK, THIS AREA KIND OF CENTRAL VANCOUVER, AROUND KING EDWARD AND CAMBIE AREAS. SO THE MOST TRICK OR TREATERS — FOR THE HOUSE THAT GOT THE MOST OF THEM COMING TO THEIR DOOR. 1,256 IN THAT AREA. ANOTHER, IT’S HOME TO THE THRILLER HOUSE, IT’S CALLED, WHICH IS PRETTY DECKED OUT. SO — >>Anita: THIS IS ACTUALLY STEADY THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, BECAUSE THEY ARE TRACKING IT BY TIME. >>Reporter: YES, IT MAKES MY HEART SING A LITTLE BIT AS A DATA JOURNALIST. [ Laughter ]>>Anita: I KNOW THESE ARE THE HOT SPOTS, WHERE ALL THE POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE IS. BUT IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO GET A LOT OF CANDY AND THE REALLY GOOD CANDY, ARE THOSE PLACES THE SPOTS TO GO TO?>>Reporter: NO, THEY ARE NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE GETTING THE 500, 600, A THOUSAND TRICK OR TREATERS. SO IF YOU WANT TO BE SAVVY ABOUT YOUR CANDY HAUL, YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY WANT TO TARGET SOME OF THE PLACES WHERE PEOPLE WERE TELLING US THEY WANTED TO GET MORE TRICK OR TREATERS, AND THEY WERE GETTING NO ONE. THESE ARE PLACES LIKE APARTMENT BUILDINGS OR CONDOS. IF YOU HAVE A KID IN AN APARTMENT BUILDING, CHECK OUT YOUR FLOOR. CERTAIN NEIGHBOURHOODS TOO THAT KIND OF STOOD OUT FOR THOSE SORTS OF LONELY HEARTS HALLOWEEN COMMENTS. ONE WAS GRANDVIEW WOODLANDS, AND EAST VANCOUVER ONE WAS RAIL TOWN, SOMEONE THERE REFERRED TO IT THAT THEY DIDN’T GET A SINGLE TRICK OR TREATER IN 12 YEARS. >>Anita: WOW. OKAY. >>Reporter: THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WITH MORE CANDY. SO THEY WILL PROBABLY BE MORE GENEROUS. WE’RE MISSING BIG PARTS OF METRO VANCOUVER, WHERE WE JUST DON’T HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE REPORTING. WE HAVE GOT SURREY, LANGLEY, GOT DELTA, RICHMOND. WIDELY RUMOURED TO BE LOTS OF CHILDREN OUT IN LANGLEY. [ Laughter ]>>Reporter: WE DON’T SEE THEM REPORTING THEIR TREAT COUNT. WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM PEOPLE IN THOSE PARTS OF METRO VANCOUVER. >>Anita: OKAY. THANKS SO MUCH. >>Reporter: THANKS, ANITA. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: 1200 TRICK OR TREATERS AT THE DOOR?>>Brett: IMPRESSIVE. >>Anita: I DON’T KNOW WHO WANTS THAT MANY. [ Laughter ]>>Mike: WELL, IT’S A LOT OF MONEY TOO. IF YOU ARE PARTICIPATING. >>Anita: I SHOULD SAY TARA TRACKS THE SPOTS THAT HAVE THE FULL-SIZED CANDY BARS. IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE AND YOU ONLY WANT THOSE — >>Brett: THE BEST HOUSES. WINNERS IN MY BOOK ALL THE TIME.>>Anita: ABSOLUTELY. >>Brett: YESTERDAY WE WERE SAYING IT WAS VERY COLD. YOU BROUGHT OUT THE WINTER JACKET. TODAY WAS JUSTIFIED BECAUSE THIS MORNING, YVR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, -2 FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.>>Mike: BELOW 0.>>Anita: WOW. >>Brett: JUSTIFIES THE JACKET.>>Anita: THANK YOU. >>Brett: IN ADDITION TO THE COOL TEMPERATURES, LOOK AT THE BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE WE SAW THERE — OR ABOUT TO SEE OR ARE SEEING NOW. THIS MORNING WAS A BEAUTIFUL ONE, AND IT CONTINUES TO RISE EVER LATER AND LATER, GETTING CLOSER TO ABOUT 8:00 IN THE MORNING. BUT WHO KNOWS. THAT MIGHT CHANGE WITH THAT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME LEGISLATION OVER THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE. BUT, OF COURSE, HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST HERE. THE KIDS HAVE BEEN WAITING PATIENTLY. MAYBE YOURSELF ARE WAITING PATIENTLY FOR THIS. HERE’S A LOOK AT YOUR TRICK-OR-TREAT FORECAST FOR TOMORROW. IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT. NO OTHER WAY OF SAYING THIS. THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON, VERY NICE SEASONAL TEMPERATURES, LOTS OF SUNSHINE EXPECTED. AND THEN IN THE EVENING HOURS, ONCE THAT SUN GOES AWAY, THOSE CLOUDS WILL NOT BE IN THE SKY. TEMPERATURES DOWN TO 7 AND THEN 5 AND THEN MAYBE EVEN 4° OR SO BY THE LATE EVENING. SO KEEP THAT IN MIND, DEFINITELY DRESS IN LAYERS BUT NO NEED TO BRING ANY RAIN GEAR FOR THOSE COSTUMES TOMORROW AT ALL. IN TERMS OF THE TEMPERATURES ALL ACROSS OTHER PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN BC, YOU CAN SEE TOWARDS ABBOTSFORD, IT’S A BIT COOLER THERE, DOWN TO THE FREEZING MARK. AND THEN, OF COURSE, INTO THE KOOTENAYS, VERY SIMILAR STORY. THIS IS ALL THANKS TO THIS AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE. I KEEP REFERENCING IT BECAUSE IT REALLY JUST ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE. IT’S STAYING PUT FOR THE MOST PART OVER THE NEXT WHILE AND BY THE TIME THAT WE GET TO THE END OF THIS WEEKEND, THAT’S REALLY WHEN IT’S GOING TO BE DOWN STATESIDE AND THAT’S GOING TO ALLOW JUST A LITTLE BIT OF PRECIPITATION TO MAKE ITS WAY ON TO THE COAST OF BC. IN TERMS OF WHAT THAT WILL TRANSLATE TO COME SUNDAY, IT’S STILL NOT A GUARANTEE BUT THE SLIGHT HINT THAT WE COULD BE DEALING WITH A FEW SHOWERS. SUNDAY MORNING BUT LARGELY THE REST OF THE DAY IS GOING TO BE QUITE NICE. I SHOULD EXPECT A FEW PEAKS OF SUN. OVERALL A BIT CLOUDY. BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE FIVE-DAY FORECAST, AGAIN, NO SIGNIFICANT RAIN IN SIGHT. AND LOTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO. TEMPERATURES, AGAIN, VERY CLOSE TO SEASONAL OR ABOVE, AND, YES, THAT REMINDER OF TURNING THE CLOCKS BACK. I MEAN, I PERSONALLY DON’T MIND THE EXTRA HOUR OF SLEEP BUT REALLY THE DARKNESS TOWARDS THE EVENING, THAT GETS TO ME EVERY SINGLE TIME. I DON’T KNOW. [ Laughter ]>>Brett: YOU?>>Anita: WE’RE DISTRACTED BY IT.>>Mike: VERY GOOD. OKAY. TOMORROW NIGHT IS, OF COURSE, HALLOWEEN.>>Anita: IS IT?>>Mike: YES. [ Laughter ]>>Mike: BUT IN MONTRÉAL, NO, IT’S NOT. IT’S BEEN POSTPONED. >>Brett: YES. THAT’S BECAUSE WEATHER IS BUMPING HALLOWEEN FROM THE CALENDAR AND KEEP IN MIND, THIS IS MONTRÉAL THAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. IT IS INSTITUTES ROUGH WEATHER. >>Anita: THIS DECISION HAS SPOOKED MORE THAN A FEW PEOPLE. HERE’S MORE ON THAT STORY. >>TRICK OR TREAT! [ Together ]>>Reporter: BACK IN THE ’80s, RAIN WAS NO SCARE. HALLOWEEN SACROSANCT. DELAYING IT INCONCEIVABLE. BUT HEY, TIMES CHANGE. ACROSS EASTERN NORTH AMERICA, RESCHEDULE THE HAUNT NOW A REAL THING. >>THAT’S TRUE?>>YEAH. >>NO WAY. >>I THINK HALLOWEEN IS LIKE A HOLIDAY. LIKE, I DON’T KNOW. CAN YOU POSTPONE A HOLIDAY? PEOPLE DON’T POSTPONE CHRISTMAS IT’S SNOW. JUST SAYING. >>Reporter: WELL, MONTRÉAL IS SAYING THAT. THE TRICK OF THE TREAT SAYS IT WILL BE ON FRIDAY INSTEAD, HAUNTING NOT JUST THE CITY BUT THE SUBURBS TOO. >>OH!>>Reporter: IT’S ABOUT THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF THE KIDS, SAYS SUSAN ROY, THE MAYOR OF SAINTE-JULIE. A SHOCKER FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A CRYSTAL BALL FOR WEATHER. >>I HAVE NEVER SEEN HALLOWEEN BEING POSTPONED. >>Question: AND THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THE WEATHER COULD BE JUST AS BAD ON FRIDAY. >>IT’LL BE DRIER FRIDAY, BUT THE WINDS WILL BE A PROBLEM WITH THOSE WIND GUSTS OF OVER 60 KILOMETRES PER HOUR. [ Laughter ]>>Reporter: DOZENS OF TOWNS IN THE EASTERN U.S. ALSO POSTPONING HALLOWEEN. >>COME THURSDAY NIGHT, THE RAIN IS GOING TO BE COMING DOWN, WIND. WE DON’T WANT TREE LIMBS COMING DOWN. OBVIOUSLY WE DON’T WANT VISIBILITY ISSUES WHEN YOU HAVE KIDS OUT IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD. >>Reporter: OTTAWA COULD GET SNOW, BUT STILL GOING AHEAD. IT’LL BE WORSE THE DAY AFTER, THEY FIGURE. >>I FEEL LIKE THEY SHOULD NOT MOVE HALLOWEEN. IT WOULD BE A DISGRACE TO HALLOWEEN BECAUSE IT’S BEEN ON OCTOBER 31ST FOREVER. >>Reporter: NOT THIS YEAR, AT LEAST NOT EVERYWHERE. STILL, IF YOU ARE A KID, FREE CANDY IS STILL FREE AND CANDY. TAKE IT. ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. DAVID COMMONS, CBC NEWS, TORONTO. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: ON THE DEFENCE. LONDON FIRE BRIGADE PUSHING BACK AGAINST CRITICISM IT FAILED TO PREVENT FEWER PEOPLE FROM DYING WHEN A 24-STOREY TOWER BROKE OUT IN>>Amy: GET YOUR TICKETS TO THE CHUTZPAH FESTIVAL TODAY. CATCH CULTURALLY DIVERSE PERFORMANCES IN COMEDY, MUSIC, THEATRE AND DANCE AT THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND FESTIVAL. AND JOIN CBC VANCOUVER’S MIKE KILLEEN ON NOVEMBER 5TH AS HE HOSTS THIS YEAR’S POWER 50. HE’LL REVEAL THIS YEAR’S MOVERS AND SHAKERS ACCORDING TO “VANCOUVER MAGAZINE.” FOR MORE ON THESE EVENTS, CHECK US OUT ONLINE. THAT’S YOUR CBC VANCOUVER INBOX. [♪♪♪]>>Mike: GREEN PARTY LEADER LIZ MAY IS THINKING ABOUT THROWING HER HAT INTO THE RING TO SERVE AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. >>I THINK MOST MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT KNOW THAT I AM LESS PARTISAN CERTAINLY THAN MOST MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT, CERTAINLY MORE NON-PARTISAN THAN ANY OTHER PARTY LEADER. AND THAT I WANT PARLIAMENT TO WORK BECAUSE I LOVE THE INSTITUTION AND I RESPECT OUR INSTITUTIONS AND WANT TO SEE THEM ELEVATED AND NOT DEGRADED.>>Mike: MAY SAYS SERVING AS SPEAKER IS SOMETHING THAT’S INTERESTED HERE FOR A VERY LONG TIME. SHE NEARLY WENT FOR THE JOB AFTER THE 2015 ELECTION, BUT MISSED THE VOTE. THE SPEAKER MUST BE IN THE HOUSE WHEN THE VOTE ACTUALLY HAPPENS. IF SHE DOES NOT GET THE JOB OR IF SHE DOES GET THE JOB, RATHER, IT WOULD BE GOOD NEWS FOR JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S LIBERAL GOVERNMENT. SPEAKER ONLY VOTES IN THE EVENT OF A TIE. SO THE GREEN PARTY SPEAKER WOULD MEAN THE LIBERALS WOULD LIKELY KEEP ALL THEIR VOTES IN PLAY, SOMETHING THAT COULD HELP KEEP THE MINORITY GOVERNMENT IN POWER. IT WOULD ALSO MEAN THE GREENS WOULD HAVE TO FIND A NEW LEADER. [♪♪♪]>>Anita: LONDON’S FIRE BRIGADE IS DEFENDING ITSELF TONIGHT FOLLOWING THE OFFICIAL RELEASE OF AN INQUIRY’S REPORT INTO THE 2017 GRENFELL FIRE TRAGEDY, WHERE 72 PEOPLE DIED. >>Mike: THE BRIGADE’S COMMISSIONER SAYS FIREFIGHTERS FACED UNPRECEDENTED, UNIMAGINABLE CONDITIONS AND SAVED LIVES. BUT AS MARGARET EVANS TELLS US, THAT’S LITTLE COMFORT TO SURVIVORS AND RELATIVES OF THE VICTIMS. >>Reporter: MORE THAN TWO YEARS AFTER THE GRENFELL FIRE, INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL AT WORK IN THE TOWER BLOCK, EVEN TODAY CARRIED UP ALONG A THIN SEAM IN THE WHITE THAT NOW SHROUDS THE BUILDING. BUT NOTHING CAN COVER THE OPEN WOUND THAT GRENFELL HAS LEFT BEHIND TO PEOPLE WHO SURVIVED IT, THE PEOPLE WHO LOST LOVED ONES TO THE FLAMES REMAIN THE WALKING WOUNDED. >>I CAME OUT OF THE TOWER WITHOUT SHOES. I JUST WAS STANDING AND LOOKING AT GRENFELL TOWER. I COULDN’T — YOU KNOW, IS IT ME AND NOT ME? WHAT IS HAPPENING? WHAT IS GOING ON? AND FLASHBACK IS IN MY MIND EVERY DAY. [ Yelling ]>>Reporter: TODAY MANY RELIVE THE HORROR. STAGE ONE OF AN OFFICIAL INQUIRY POINTING TO MISTAKES MADE BY THE FIRE BRIGADE, FAILING TO ADVISE RESIDENTS TO LEAVE. A CHAOTIC AND DISORGANIZED EMERGENCY CALL CENTRE, UNBEARABLE TO HEAR FOR SOME. [ Crying ]>>WHY! WHY!>>Reporter: HAMDAN LOST HIS DAUGHTER, SON-IN-LAW, AND TWO GRANDCHILDREN. SHE LOST HER MOTHER AND AUNT. SHE WANTS PROSECUTION.>>I’M NOT SAYING INDIVIDUAL FIREMAN. THEY DID A HARD JOB. BLESS THEM. DON’T EVEN GET PAID THAT WELL. THE SENIORS AT THE TOP GET A GOOD MONEY TO DO A VERY SERIOUS JOB. >>Reporter: THE REPORT BLAMES COMBUSTIBLE CLADDING ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING FOR THE FIRES SPREAD. THE FIRE BRIGADE’S UNION HERE BELIEVES THAT SHOULD BE THE INQUIRY’S FIRST FOCUS.>>NONE OF THOSE DIFFICULT QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN ASKED OF THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PUTTING THE CLADDING ON THE OUTSIDE OF GRENFELL TOWER. >>Reporter: CRITICS SAY THE SAME TYPE OF CLADDING ON HUNDREDS OF BUILDINGS ACROSS BRITAIN IS STILL UP AS THE COUNTRY FACES AN ELECTION, A CONCERN FOR ACTIVISTS ANXIOUS TO KEEP THE LESSONS OF GRENFELL FRONT AND CENTRE. >>OUR COUNTRY IS REALLY DAMAGED AT THE MOMENT. AND IT’S ALL BEING IGNORED BECAUSE OF BREXIT, AND GRENFELL, YES, IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT IS BEING PUSHED TO THE WAYSIDE. >>Reporter: THE INQUIRY’S ULTIMATE FINDINGS ARE NOT EXPECTED UNTIL 2021. MARGARET EVANS, CBC NEWS, LONDON.>>Anita: A 3-YEAR-OLD BOY IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION TONIGHT IN A WINNIPEG HOSPITAL. >>Mike: AS CBC’S NELLIE GONZALEZ REPORTS, THE FAME SAYS THE LITTLE BOY WAS STABBED WHILE HE SLEPT, AND A WARNING, SOME MAY FIND THIS STORY DISTURBING.>>Reporter: THE ATTACK HAPPENED INSIDE THIS HOME ON PRITCHARD AVENUE. WINNIPEG POLICE WERE CALLED TO THE HOME SHORTLY BEFORE 3 IN THE MORNING AFTER A 3-YEAR-OLD BOY WAS FOUND IN HIS BATHROOM WITH SIGNIFICANT UPPER BODY INJURIES.>>HE GOT STABBED IN THE NECK. >>Reporter: THE BOY’S FAMILY SAYS THE 3-YEAR-OLD WAS FOUND IN HIS BED. HIS AUNT, WHO CBC IS NOT NAMING TO PROTECT THE CHILD’S IDENTITY, LIVES IN THE HOME BUT WASN’T THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED. NEITHER WAS THE BOY’S MOTHER. THE AUNT SAYS THE MOTHER WAS OUT WITH HER EX-BOYFRIEND AND LEFT THE CHILD IN THE CARE OF HER ADULT NEPHEW, WHO WAS ASLEEP AT THE TIME OF THE ATTACK. THE AUNT AND HER PARTNER RETURNED HOME LATER THAT NIGHT AND FOUND THE BOY.>>WHEN I CLOSED MY EYES, THAT’S ALL I SEE.>>Reporter: SHE SAYS THE SCENE WAS HORRIFIC.>>I DON’T KNOW. LIKE, I DON’T KNOW HOW ANYBODY COULD DO ANYTHING LIKE THIS.>>TO A KID.>>Reporter: SHE SAYS THE FAMILY BELIEVES IT WAS THE BOY’S MOTHER’S EX-BOYFRIEND, WHO ALLEGEDLY STABBED THE TODDLER AFTER GETTING INTO A FIGHT WITH THE MOM AT A BAR. THEY ALLEGE HE LEFT THE BAR ALONE, WENT STRAIGHT TO THE HOUSE, AND ATTACKED THE CHILD WHILE HE SLEPT. THE BOY’S AUNT SAID THEY CALLED 911 AND THE CHILD WAS RUSHED TO CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL WHERE HE REMAINS IN CRITICAL CONDITION.>>JUST — >>YEAH, HE IS NOT DOING GOOD, REALLY. HE IS NOT DOING GOOD. HE IS FIGHTING. >>Reporter: WINNIPEG POLICE SAY THE TODDLER KNEW HIS ATTACKER. THIS IS THE THIRD VIOLENT INCIDENT IN WINNIPEG SINCE SATURDAY INVOLVING A CHILD. ON SATURDAY, A 14-YEAR-OLD GIRL DIED AFTER SHE WAS STABBED AT A HALLOWEEN PARTY. SHE WAS ONE OF THE THREE PEOPLE WHO WERE VICTIMS OF HOMICIDE THAT NIGHT, BRINGING THE CITY’S TOTAL TO 36 THIS YEAR. ON SUNDAY, A BABY WAS SHOT AT A HOME ON FLORA AVENUE. THE BABY IS EXPECTED TO SURVIVE.>>I WILL SAY THAT WORDS CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THE SADNESS SURROUNDING THIS EVENT. IT’S AN UNTHINKABLE EVENT. AND IT HAS TO AFFECT THE ENTIRE CITY, NOT JUST THE FAMILY. >>Reporter: DISTURBING FOR OFFICERS AND FOR THE FAMILY.>>SHE LOOKED UP TO HIM. LIKE — LIKE I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO — YEAH, THERE IS, LIKE, THAT FATHER FIGURE KIND OF, LIKE, GOING ON THERE RELATIONSHIP, AND NOW THAT’S GONE.>>Reporter: WINNIPEG POLICE ARE ASKING ANYONE WHO MAY HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CASE TO CONTACT INVESTIGATORS. NELLIE GONZALES, CBC NEWS, WINNIPEG. [♪♪♪] [♪♪♪]>>Mike: OKAY. HERE’S SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE SEEN, WELL, QUITE A FEW TIMES THIS YEAR. >>Anita: YEAH. >>Mike: A BEAR CAUGHT ON CAMERA OPENING A CAR DOOR. >>Anita: THIS TIME IT HAPPENED IN PORT ALBERNI. TAKE A LOOK. THIS IS FOOTAGE FROM OCTOBER 25TH AT AROUND 6 IN THE MORNING. CAR OWNER CHRISTINE FRED SAID SHE WAS SITTING IN HER LIVING ROOM WITH HER DOG WHEN SHE HEARD A COMMOTION OUTSIDE. WHEN SHE GOT UP TO LOOK, SHE SAW THE CAR DOOR OPEN WITH THE BEAR’S BEHIND STICKING OUT. >>Mike: YEAH. SHE EVENTUALLY SCARED THE BEAR AWAY. NO SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE, JUST SOME MUDDY PAW PRINTS LEFT BEHIND. WHICH IS LUCKY.>>Anita: WHAT WAS THAT?>>Mike: WELL, SCARED IT AWAY. >>Anita: THREW SOMETHING. >>Mike: AWAY IT GOES. >>Anita: SEEMS LIKE THIS YEAR WE HAVE SEEN A LOT OF BEAR INCIDENTS. >>Mike: LOCK YOUR DOORS.
