The National for August 12, 2019 — Fugitives’ Autopsy, Epstein Investigation, Hong Kong Protests


(*) (*)>>Andrew: TONIGHT, THE FINAL MOMENTS IN A CROSS-COUNTRY MANHUNT. WE NOW KNOW HOW THE TWO B.C. FUGITIVES DIED, BUT SOME QUESTIONS –>>WHAT LED THESE TWO CANADIAN TEENAGERS DOWN SUCH A DARK PATH OF DESTRUCTION?>>Andrew: IT MAY NEVER BE ANSWERED. (*)>>>I HOPE THAT I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK MY TRUTH.>>Andrew: INSIDE THE SNC-LAVALIN AFFAIR.>>>I HOPE THAT I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK MY TRUTH.>>Andrew: INSIDE THE SNC-LAVALIN AFFAIR. WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN JUSTIN TRUDEAU AND JODY WILSON-RAYBOULD? A CBC NEWS EXCLUSIVE. (*) [Applause]>>Adrienne: WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE CANADA’S TENNIS CHAMPION.>>Bianca Andreescu: EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW THAT IS HAPPENING IN MY LIFE IS INCREDIBLE. I STILL HAVEN’T TOUCHED MY PHONE YET.>>Adrienne: AND THE STORY BEHIND THAT MOMENT. I SIT DOWN WITH BIANCA ANDREESCU.>>>THIS IS “THE NATIONAL.” (*)>>Andrew: AFTER ALL OF THE DRAMA AND THE FEAR, TWO KEY THINGS AND CLARITY TONIGHT, ABOUT THE BODIES POLICE FOUND IN THE BRUSH NEAR GILLAM, MANITOBA. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THEY ARE THE BODIES OF KAM McLEOD AND BRYER SCHMEGELSKY, TWO FUGITIVES WHO LED POLICE ON A MANHUNT FOR WEEKS. BUT WE ALSO NOW KNOW HOW THEY DIED. TANYA FLETCHER TAKES US THROUGH THE FINDINGS AS WELL AS THE QUESTIONS THAT STILL LINGER.>>Reporter: AT LEAST ONE ANSWER TODAY AFTER THE CROSS-COUNTRY MANHUNT THAT SPANNED WEEKS AND ACROSS PROVINCES. WE NOW KNOW THAT BRYER SCHMEGELSKY AND KAM McLEOD DIED OF APPARENT SUICIDE BY GUNFIRE. WHAT WE DON’T KNOW IS WHEN EXACTLY. RCMP SUGGEST THEY LIVED FOR DAYS AFTER THEY WERE LAST SPOTTED ALIVE ON JULY 22nd NEAR SPLIT LAKE, MANITOBA. BUT THAT THEY WERE ALSO DEAD FOR DAYS BEFORE THEY WERE FOUND AUGUST 7th. MEDICAL EXPERTS SAY THAT IT CAN BE TOUGH TO PINPOINT SPECIFIC DATES.>>THE TWO BODIES MAY HAVE DIFFERENT STATES OF PRESERVATION DEPENDING ON THE MICRO-ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY WERE. AND A BODY KEPT IN VERY COOL CONDITIONS CAN REMAIN PRETTY WELL PRESERVED FOR A LONG TIME. A BODY IN VERY WARM CONDITIONS, NOT SO MUCH.>>Reporter: THE RCMP ALSO CONFIRMED TWO FIREARMS WERE FOUND NEAR THE BODIES. FORENSIC ANALYSIS WILL DETERMINE WHETHER THOSE ARE THE SAME WEAPONS CONNECTED TO THE KILLINGS OF LUCAS FOWLER AND CHYNNA DEESE AND LEONARD DYCK. POLICE ARE ALSO STILL SEARCHING FOR A MOTIVE.>>THEY CAN LOOK AT SOME OF THE EVIDENCE AND COME UP WITH SOME VERY OFTEN SCIENTIFICALLY-BASED REASONS FOR WHAT HAPPENED. AND, AGAIN, SINCE WE DON’T HAVE STATEMENTS OFF THE ACCUSED, THAT MIGHT BE OUR BEST BET.>>Reporter: A BEHAVIORAL ANALYSIS TEAM WILL NOW INVESTIGATE THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE DEATHS OF SCHMEGELSKY AND McLEOD. INVESTIGATORS SIFTED THROUGH A THOUSAND TIPS DURING THE COURSE OF THE CASE, EVEN THE MILITARY WAS BROUGHT IN TO HELP. SO ANOTHER QUESTION — WHY DID SUCH AN EXTENSIVE SEARCH TURN UP SO LITTLE FOR SO LONG?>>THIS IS A MASSIVE TERRITORY. AND VERY INHOSPITABLE TERRITORY, SOME OF THE MOST RUGGED TERRAIN IN THE COUNTRY. THE POLICE TOOK ALL OF THE AVAILABLE MEASURES IN TERMS OF PERSONNEL, IN TERMS OF TECHNOLOGY.>>Reporter: WE REACHED OUT TO THE FAMILIES OF THE SUSPECTS AND THE VICTIMS, NONE OF THEM WANTED TO COMMENT AS THEY AWAIT THE FINAL UPDATE ON THE INVESTIGATION. BUT THE RCMP SAY THAT COULD BE A FEW WEEKS YET. TANYA FLETCHER, CBC NEWS, VANCOUVER.>>Andrew: OKAY, ADRIENNE, WE’RE STILL WAITING ON THE OFFICIAL AUTOPSY REPORT FOR ANOTHER HIGH-PROFILE DEATH.>>Adrienne: WELL, THAT’S RIGHT. SO WE KNEW, ANDREW, THAT OVER THE WEEKEND THAT JEFFREY EPSTEIN DIED IN AN APPARENT SUICIDE IN HIS NEW YORK CITY JAIL CELL. WHAT WE’RE HEARING TONIGHT ARE SOME UNCONFIRMED REPORTS THAT HE HANGED HIMSELF. SO WHAT EVERYONE REALLY WANTS TO KNOW IS HOW HE MANAGED TO KILL HIMSELF WHEN HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE UNDER CLOSE WATCH. A MYSTERY THAT HAS TRIGGERED WIDESPREAD CONSPIRACY THEORIES. TODAY AS PAUL HUNTER REPORTS, THERE’S A PROMISE TO FIND SOME ANSWERS.>>Reporter: IT HAS AT ONCE BAFFLED AND ENRAGED COUNTLESS IN THIS COUNTRY. IN THIS NEW YORK JAIL THE SUICIDE OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN. SAID THE U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL TODAY, IT’S APPALLING.>>WE’RE NOW LEARNING OF SERIOUS IRREGULARITIES AT THIS FACILITY THAT ARE DEEPLY CONCERNING AND DEMAND A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION.>>Reporter: EPSTEIN, AS MOST BY NOW KNOW, WAS AN ENORMOUSLY WEALTHY MONEY MANAGER AND CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER WITH A HIGH-POWERED SOCIAL CIRCLE, INCLUDING IN YEARS PAST DONALD TRUMP. AS EPSTEIN’S LIFE ENDED EARLY SATURDAY, HE STOOD ACCUSED OF FRESH SEX CRIMES INVOLVING UNDERAGED GIRLS AND FACED POTENTIALLY DECADES IN PRISON. AND SO THE BIG QUESTION — HOW ON EARTH WAS THE APPARENT SUICIDE EVEN POSSIBLE IN SUCH A HIGH SECURITY PLACE? DAYS AFTER AN EARLIER APPARENT SUICIDE ATTEMPT, A FELLOW INMATE REMOVED FROM THE CELL SOMEHOW FRIDAY NIGHT GUARDS HERE FAILED TO LOOK IN ON HIM. CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUND. FUELED IN PART BY THAT SOCIAL CIRCLE. FRIENDLY, NOT JUST WITH TRUMP — THESE IMAGES ARE FROM 1992 — BUT ALSO BILL CLINTON. AND PRINCE ANDREW. ON BRITAIN’S FRONT PAGES TODAY HIMSELF NOW ACCUSED OF ASSAULT BY ONE OF THE WOMEN ALSO ACCUSING EPSTEIN. DENIED BY BUCKINGHAM PALACE. MEANWHILE EPSTEIN’S DEATH BRINGS RENEWED FOCUS ON THIS WOMAN — HIS ASSOCIATE, GHISLAINE MAXWELL, ACCUSED RECRUITER OF GIRLS TO BE ASSAULTED. WHEREABOUTS FOR THE MOMENT UNKNOWN. AT THE WEDDING OF BILL CLINTON’S DAUGHTER, CHELSEA IN 2010, THAT’S HER OFF TO THE SIDE AMONG THE INVITED GUESTS. AS FOR WHAT SHE DID WITH EPSTEIN –>>THERE ARE ALLEGATIONS THAT MISS MAXWELL WAS AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN THE SEXUAL ABUSE.>>Reporter: INDEED, EVEN THOUGH AUTHORITIES NOTE THE CRIMINAL CASE AGAINST EPSTEIN DIED WITH EPSTEIN –>>ANY CO-CONSPIRATORS SHOULD NOT REST EASY. THE VICTIMS DESERVE JUSTICE AND THEY WILL GET IT.>>Reporter: TODAY IN FRANCE WHERE EPSTEIN OWNED THIS PROPERTY, FRESH CALLS TO OPEN AN INVESTIGATION THERE. QUESTIONS NOW WORLDWIDE MOUNT. PAUL HUNTER, CBC NEWS, WASHINGTON.>>Adrienne: AS YOU HEARD PAUL SAY, JEFFREY EPSTEIN WAS STAGGERINGLY WEALTHY. SO WHAT HAPPENS TO HIS ASSETS NOW? COURT FILINGS SAID THAT EPSTEIN WAS WORTH AT LEAST $500 MILLION U.S. AND MORE THAN $10 MILLION IN ANNUAL INCOME. HE ALSO OWNS SOME INCREDIBLE REAL ESTATE, INCLUDING A $ MANSION IN MANHATTAN’S UPPER EASTSIDE. A 27,000 SQUARE-FOOT RANCH HOUSE IN NEW MEXICO. 77 MILLION A HOME IN PALM BEACH, JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM TRUMP MAR-A-LAGO RESORT. TWO PRIVATE ISLANDS IN THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS AND THAT APARTMENT IN PARIS. WITH NO KNOWN WILL AND NO WIFE, NO KIDS, HIS BROTHER MARK COULD INHERIT IT ALL. BUT TODAY EPSTEIN’S ACCUSERS CALLED FOR A FREEZE OF HIS ASSETS AHEAD OF CIVIL SUITS AGAINST THE ESTATE. THE SAIDS COULD SEIZE THE ASSETS TO PROVIDE RESTITUTION TO HIS VICTIMS IF THEY CAN PROVE THAT ALL OF THOSE ASSETS ARE CONNECTED TO CRIMINAL ACTIVITY.>>>LET’S GO TO HONG KONG WHERE IT’S ALREADY TUESDAY. SOME FLIGHTS ARE RESUMING AT THE AIRPORT AFTER THE PROTESTS CRIPPLED THE INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL HUB ON MONDAY. TODAY CANADA IS WEIGHING IN WITH A WARNING FOR CHINA AT A TIME WHEN RELATIONS ARE AT A LOW POINT. THIS IS AS PROTESTS IN HONG KONG ONLY ESCALATE. THIS GATEWAY TO ASIA BECAME A STAGE OF CHAOS. THE HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, ONE OF THE BUSIEST IN THE WORLD, BROUGHT TO A STANDSTILL. PASSENGERS GREETED WITH A CHORUS OF APPEALS FROM YOUNG HONG KONGERS PLEADING FOR SUPPORT.>>FIGHT FOR FREEDOM!>>Adrienne: THE GOAL — PEACEFUL DISRUPTION. AND THERE WASN’T ANY VIOLENCE HERE BUT IT WAS VIOLENCE THAT SPARKED THE AIRPORT OFF LOCATION. THIS INCIDENT IN PARTICULAR OVER THE WEEK IN THE STREETS OF THE CHINESE TERRITORY HAS STUNNED HONG KONG. DEMONSTRATORS TEAR GASSED AND HIT WITH RUBBER BULLETS INSIDE OF A SUBWAY STATION. MOST OUTRAGEOUS FOR PROTESTERS WAS IN IMAGE OF A YOUNG FEMALE DEMONSTRATOR SHOT IN THE EYE.>>HONG KONG HAS JUST SEEN THE DARKEST WEEKEND IN ITS CONTEMPORARY HISTORY.>>[SPEAKING CHINESE]>>Adrienne: TODAY LOCAL JOURNALISTS HELD UP PICTURES OF THE INJURED AND DEMANDING ANSWERS FROM THE CITY POLICE CHIEF.>>AS LONG AS THEY ARE VIOLENT PROTESTERS, IF THEY ARE AIMING TO USE FORCE AGAINST ANY OTHER PEOPLE WE WILL TRY OUR BEST TO DO AN INVESTIGATION AND HAVE THAT ENDED. (gunshots).>>Adrienne: NOW CHINA IS GETTING INCREASINGLY FRUSTRATED WITH THE PROTESTS. THEY ARE NOW INTO THEIR 10th WEEK AND WHAT BEGAN IN RESPONSE TO A PROPOSED LAW ALLOWING EXTRADITIONS TO CHINA HAS MORPHED INTO A WIDER PRO-DEMOCRACY MOVEMENT.>>[SPEAKING CHINESE]>>Adrienne: PROTESTS HAVE BEGUN TO SHOW SIGNS OF TERRORISM, A CHINESE GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN SAID, WARNING THAT VIOLENT ANTI-GOVERNMENT DEMONSTRATIONS DESERVE SEVERE PUNISHMENT. SO AS CHINA RATCHETS UP ITS RHETORIC, CANADA IS CALLING FOR CALM.>>WE SEE THE NEED FOR DEESCALATION OF TENSIONS AND WE CERTAINLY CALL ON CHINA TO BE VERY CAREFUL AND VERY RESPECTFUL IN HOW IT DEALS WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE LEGITIMATE CONCERNS IN HONG KONG.>>Adrienne: TRUDEAU’S COMMENTS ARE UNLIKELY TO IMPROVE ALREADY POOR RELATIONS BETWEEN OTTAWA AND BEIJING. BUT THE GOVERNMENT INSISTS THAT IT’S FOCUSED ON PROTECTING CANADA’S INTERESTS IN HONG KONG, HOME TO 300,000 CANADIAN CITIZENS. NOW GLOBAL AFFAIRS’ TRAVEL ADVISORY FOR HONG KONG IS STILL IN EFFECT. THEY’RE WARNING CANADIANS TO EXERCISE WHAT IT CALLS “A HIGH DEGREE OF CAUTION” DUE TO DISRUPTIONS TO PUBLIC TRANSIT AND POSSIBLE ACTS OF VIOLENCE.>>Andrew: WE’RE JUST 10 WEEKS AWAY FROM THE FEDERAL ELECTION AND WE NOW KNOW WHICH PARTY LEADERS HAVE BEEN INVITED TO THE TWO MAJOR ELECTION DEBATES AND WHICH ONE IN PARTICULAR HAS NOT. NOW ON THE INVITE LIST, THE BLOC QUÉBECOIS, CONSERVATIVE, GREEN AND LIBERAL AND N.D.P. LEADERS. BUT MAXIME BERNIER, THE LEADER OF THE PEOPLE’S PARTY OF CANADA, NOT INVITED. THAT NEWS WAS DELIVERED BY DAVID JOHNSTON, THE COMMISSIONER OF THE DEBATE ORGANIZING GROUP. THAT COULD STILL CHANGE. THE PARTY IS RELATIVELY NEW, ONLY FORMED LAST YEAR AFTER BERNIER LEFT THE CONSERVATIVES. THE FIRST DEBATE IS SET FOR OCTOBER 7th. OUR CHRIS HALL IS OUR NATIONAL AFFAIRS EDIT OOR IN OTTAWA AND, OF COURSE, THE HOST OF “THE HOUSE” ON CBC. AND SO THERE WAS A LIST OF CRITERIA TO GET AN INVITATION AND BERNIER DID NOT MEET ENOUGH OF THEM.>>Reporter: THAT’S RIGHT. HE ONLY MEETS ONE OF THE THREE CRITERIA AND YOU NEED TO MEET AND SO THERE WAS A LIST OF CRITERIA TO GET AN INVITATION AND BERNIER DID NOT MEET ENOUGH OF THEM.>>Reporter: THAT’S RIGHT. HE ONLY MEETS ONE OF THE THREE CRITERIA AND YOU NEED TO MEET TWO. AND THE REASON PRIMARILY, ANDREW, IS THAT HE LEADS A NEW PARTY THAT HAS NEVER ELECTED AN M.P. BUT I THINK WHAT GOT OUR ATTENTION IN ALL OF THIS IS THE CRITERIA WHICH AROUND DAVID JOHNSTON IS EXCLUDING THE P.P.C. AND MAXIME BERNIER. THAT IS THAT HE DOESN’T BELIEVE THAT BASED ON OPINION POLLING AND SEAT PROJECTIONS THAT THE P.P.C. HAS A LEGITIMATE CHANCE OF WINNING MORE THAN ONE SEAT. THAT SAID, IT’S A PRELIMINARY DECISION THAT HE’S GIVEN. AND MAXIME BERNIER UNTIL AUGUST 23rd, HAS TO COME UP WITH THREE TO FIVE RIDINGS TO SUBNATE HE BELIEVES THAT THE PARTY HAS A GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING. AND ANY OTHER EVIDENCE BY SEPTEMBER 9th THAT PUTS MAXIME BERNIER IN THESE DEBATES. SO NOT A LOT OF TIME TO MEET THOSE DEMANDS.>>Andrew: YEAH, BUT NO SURPRISE HERE THAT MAXIME BERNIER HAS RESPONDED IN SORT TO THIS. WHAT DID HE HAVE TO SAY?>>Reporter: HE RESPONDED BY SAYING THAT WE’RE DISAPPOINTED, OBVIOUSLY, IN THE DECISION. AND SAYING THAT IT DOESN’T TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE POLITICAL CONTEXT OR THE FACT THAT THE P.P.C. IS A POPULIST PARTY. HERE’S PART WHAT HE SAID. THE STATEMENT SAYS, “THE P.P.C. REPRESENTS A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE, AND IT IS THE ONLY PARTY THAT OFFERS DISTINCT POLICY POSITIONS ON SEVERAL TOPICS THAT ARE AT THE HEART OF POLITICAL DEBATES, INCLUDING IMMIGRATION, CLIMATE CHANGE, FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, CORPORATE WELFARE, FOREIGN AID, SUPPLY MANAGEMENT, AND MANY OTHER TOPICS.” WHETHER THEY HAVE A LIST TO SUBMIT AND WHAT THOSE RIDINGS MIGHT BE THAT THEY COULD WIN, I DIDN’T GET AN ANSWER. BUT, OF COURSE, GETTING INTO THE DEBATES IS IMPORTANT FOR ANY LEADER, LET ALONE ONE OF A NEW PARTY, TO SHOW WHAT YOUR POSITIONS ARE, TO BE ABLE TO ALLOW VOTERS TO CONTRAST AND COMPARE HOW YOU COMPARE TO THE OTHER LEADERS. SO, CLEARLY, THE P.P.C. WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE THE CASE THAT IT BELONGS AND ITS LEADER MAXIME BERNIER BELONGS IN THESE DEBATES.>>Andrew: CHRIS HALL IN OTTAWA, THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>Reporter: THANKS, ANDREW.>>Andrew: NOW AS JUSTIN TRUDEAU LOOKS TOWARDS THE CAMPAIGN IT’S HARD TO FORGET ONE ISSUE FROM HIS FIRST MANDATE THAT HAS PERHAPS DONE MORE DAMAGE THAN ANY OTHER. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE SNC-LAVALIN CONTROVERSY. AT THER IN THE OF IT WAS A JUSTICE MINISTER WHO CLAIMED THAT SHE WAS IMPROPERLY PRESSURED AND A PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE SAYING THAT WAS SIMPLY NOT THE CASE. NOW AN UPCOMING BOOK BY CBC SENIOR’S WRITER AARON WHERRY EXPLAINS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO THAT MAYBE NEVER REALLY WORKED. OUR ROSEMARY BARTON HAS MORE ON THE BEHIND-THE-SCENES DETAILS ON THE CONTROVERSY THAT WOULD SHAKE THE VERY FOUNDATION OF THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT.>>I, JODY WILSON-RAYBOULD, WILL BE FAITHFUL AND EXECUTE THE POWERS AS THE MINISTER OF JUSTICE AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF CANADA.>>Rosemary: IT WAS JUSTIN TRUDEAU WHO HELPED TO RECRUIT JODY WILSON-RAYBOULD BACK IN 2015. BUT NO MATTER WHAT TRUDEAU DID OVER THIS PAST SPRING HE COULD NOT FIND A WAY TO KEEP HER IN THE LIBERAL FOLD. AND HE SEEMED TO UNDERSTAND THE DANGER OF THAT EVEN BEFORE SHE WAS GONE, TELLING WHERRY IN JANUARY, “I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN YOU HAVE POWERFUL, POSITIVE SYMBOLS IT’S ALSO POSSIBLE TO HAVE THAT SNAP BACK ON YOU WHEN YOU MAKE OTHER DECISIONS.” WHERRY WRITES THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY WILSON-RAYBOULD WHO FIRST ALERTED THE PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE THAT A NEWSPAPER WAS ABOUT TO PUBLISH A STORY ABOUT A DEFERRED PROSECUTION AGREEMENT AND SNC-LAVALIN.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: THE ALLEGATIONS IN “THE GLOBE” STORY THIS MORNING ARE FALSE.>>Rosemary: TRUDEAU’S FIRST RESPONSE WAS TO SAY THAT THERE HAD BEEN NO UNDUE PRESSURE ON THE ATTORNEY.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: SHE WAS NEVER DIRECTED BY ME OR ANYONE IN MY OFFICE.>>Rosemary: BUT TRUDEAU THEN HEARD THAT THE MINISTER WAS NOT PLEASED WITH HIS ANSWER. AND NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME WE’RE LEARNING HOW THE NEXT COUPLE OF DRAMATIC DAYS UNFOLDED.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: I HAVE MET WITH MINISTER WILSON-RAYBOULD A COUPLE OF TIMES ALREADY SINCE ARRIVING IN B.C. AND WE SPOKE ABOUT OUR SHARED GOALS FOR OUR COUNTRY AND FOR THIS GOVERNMENT.>>Rosemary: ON FEBRUARY 10th, TRUDEAU AND WILSON-RAYBOULD MET PRIVATELY AT THE VANCOUVER AIRPORT, WHERE THE MINISTER TOLD TRUDEAU THAT SHE THE VANCOUVER AIRPORT, WHERE THE MINISTER TOLD TRUDEAU THAT SHE WAS WORRIED ABOUT HOW HE WAS BEING SERVED BY SOME OF HIS ADVISORS. AND WHERE, ACCORDING TO THE BOOK, SHE REVEALS FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT SHE FELT INAPPROPRIATELY PRESSURED ON THE S.N.C. FILE. TRUDEAU SAID THAT THIS WAS HIS REACTION. “MY FIRST QUESTION WAS, WHY NOW, WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME THIS NOW AND NOT MONTHS AGO?” HE SAID THAT SHE GAVE NO ULTIMATUMS AT THAT MEETING SO THE TWO MET AGAIN THE FOLLOWING MORNING WHEN TRUDEAU TRIED TO REASSURE HER THAT THEY COULD FIGURE THIS OUT. THAT WILSON-RAYBOULD HAD THE POWER TO MAKE HER OWN DECISIONS ON THE MATTER.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: HER PRESENCE IN CABINET SHOULD ACTUALLY SPEAK FOR ITSELF.>>Rosemary: NOT LONG AFTER THAT PRESS CONFERENCE, WILSON-RAYBOULD ASKED FOR A THIRD MEETING WHERE SHE TOLD TRUDEAU THAT SHE WAS QUITTING. A SURPRISED TRUDEAU SAID THIS AT THE TIME.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: THIS RESIGNATION IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH CONVERSATIONS THAT I HAD WITH JODY A FEW WEEKS AGO WHEN I ASKED HER TO SERVE AS CANADA’S MINISTER FOR VETERANS’ AFFAIRS.>>Rosemary: EVEN WHEN SPEAKING WITH WHERRY FOR THE BOOK, TRUDEAU SAYS THAT HE DOESN’T FULLY UNDERSTOOD WHY SHE LEFT. “THESE ARE DELICATE CONVERSATIONS, AND I DON’T WANT TO MISCHARACTERIZE THEM OR SPEAK FOR ANYONE ELSE — BUT I CONTINUED TO NOT ENTIRELY UNDERSTAND WHY.” WILSON-RAYBOULD WOULD NOT SPEAK ABOUT ANY OF THESE CONVERSATIONS TO WHERRY CITING CABINET CONFIDENTIALITY. BUT SHE DID SAY THIS ABOUT THE ACCOUNTING OF THE MEETINGS, “YOU ARE RECEIVING… FALSE, SELF-SERVING/ONE-SIDED AND INACCURATE ACCOUNTS OF RELEVANT EVENTS. THIS IS NOT FAIR.”>>RESIGNING WAS THE RIGHT AND THE NECESSARY THING TO DO FOR THE OFFICE AND FOR THE PRIME MINISTER.>>Rosemary: THE RESIGNATION OF WILSON-RAYBOULD ALSO LED TO THE RESIGNATION OF THE PRINCIPAL SECRETARY GERALD BUTTS A WEEK LATER. WHERRY REPORTS THAT BUTTS HAD TRIED TO QUIT SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE BUT TRUDEAU WOULD NOT LET HIM, SAYING, “I WAS VERY CONFIDENT THAT HE HAD NOT DONE ANYTHING WRONG.”>>I HOPE THAT I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK MY TRUTH.>>Rosemary: BUT TRUDEAU JUST COULDN’T SEEM TO GIVE UP ON WILSON-RAYBOULD EITHER AND MAKING ATTEMPTS TO KEEP HER IN THE LIBERAL CAUCUS EVEN DURING HER STUNNING TESTIMONY AT COMMITTEE.>>I ASKED THE PRIME MINISTER A DIRECT QUESTION WHILE LOOKING HIM IN THE EYE. I ASKED, QUOTE, “ARE YOU POLITICALLY INTERFERING WITH MY ROLE, MY DECISION, AS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL?”>>Rosemary: EVEN WHEN IT WAS REVEALED THAT THE FORMER MINISTER HAD SECRETLY TAPED A PHONE CALL WITH THE CLERK OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL.>>HELLO.>>HELLO, MICHAEL, IT’S JODY.>>Rosemary: TRUDEAU WAS STILL TALKING TO HIS FORMER JUSTICE MINISTER ABOUT A PATH FORWARD. WHERRY REPORTS THEY EVEN WORKED ON A JOINT STATEMENT BUT ON A JOINT STATEMENT BUT ULTIMATELY COULD NOT GET PAST ONE ISSUE. “I CAN’T APOLOGISE FOR SOMETHING THAT I DON’T FUNDAMENTALLY THINK WE DID WRONG. AND THAT WAS REALLY SORT OF THE KEY OF IT.” WITHOUT THAT ADMISSION, WILSON-RAYBOULD WOULD NOT AGREE TO THE STATEMENT AND THE TALKS COLLAPSED AND JUST ONE DAY LATER WILSON-RAYBOULD AND HER COLLEAGUE AND SUPPORTER JANE PHILPOTT WERE REMOVED FROM CAUCUS.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: THE TRUST THAT PREVIOUSLY EXISTED BETWEEN THESE TWO INDIVIDUALS AND OUR TEAM HAS BEEN BROKEN.>>I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY.>>Rosemary: IN THE BOOK WILSON-RAYBOULD DESCRIBES HER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PRIME MINISTER AS DECENT BUT CHALLENGING. BUT THREE WEEKS AFTER PUSHING HER OUT OF CAUCUS TRUDEAU TELLS WHERRY THAT HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FORMER JUSTICE MINISTER WAS NEVER REALLY WHAT HE IMAGINED. “A NUMBER OF TIMES OVER THE FIRST YEARS OF MY GOVERNMENT, I GRUMBLED TO MYSELF THAT IT WAS DIFFICULT FOR ME TO NOT HAVE A MINISTER OF JUSTICE THAT I WAS SUPER-SYMPATICO WITH.” IN FACT, IT WAS ARGUABLY THE SINGLE EVENT AND RELATIONSHIP THAT CAUSED TRUDEAU’S GOVERNMENT THE MOST DAMAGE IN PUBLIC OPINION POLLS AND IT HAPPENED JUST EIGHT MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTION. ROSEMARY BARTON, CBC NEWS, OTTAWA.>>Andrew: SOME OF THE OTHER STORIES THAT WE’RE FOLLOWING TONIGHT ON “THE NATIONAL”…>>>MANITOBANS ARE HEADED TO THE POLLS.>>IT’S TIME FOR A NEW MANDATE TO KEEP MOVING MANITOBA FORWARD.>>Andrew: THE MAJOR PARTIES HAVE BEEN IN CAMPAIGN MODE FOR WEEKS AFTER BRIAN PALLISTER ANNOUNCED IN JUNE THAT THE ELECTION WOULD HAPPEN A YEAR EARLY. HE SAYS THAT THE MOVE IS IN RESPONSE TO A CHANGING PROVINCE. BUT SOME ANALYSTS BELIEVE THAT THE SHIFT IS MEANT TO CAPITALIZE ON A CONSERVATIVE LEAD IN THE POLLS. MANITOBANS VOTE SEPTEMBER 10th.>>>ABOUT 800 COWS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN A MAJOR FIRE AT ONE OF MANITOBA’S LARGEST DAIRY FARMS. IT STARTED EARLY THIS MORNING NEAR STEINBACH UNDER AN HOUR’S DRIVE FROM WINNIPEG. THERE WERE ABOUT A THOUSAND ANIMALS INSIDE AT THE TIME. THE FIRE CREWS MANAGING TO SAVE ABOUT 200. NO WORD YET ON THE CAUSE.>>>AND A QUÉBEC CITY MAN ACCUSED OF SETTING HIS EX-PARTNER ON FIRE WILL REMAIN IN CUSTODY FOLLOWING A BRIEF COURT APPEARANCE TODAY. THE VICTIM IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION WITH BURNS ON 50% OF HER BODY. THE ATTACK HAPPENED FRIDAY IN FRONT OF THE WOMAN’S TWO CHILDREN AND MOTHER. THERE’S A SECOND INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY, THIS ONE INTO THE OFFICERS WHO ESCORTED THE MAN TO JAIL. THE INCIDENT WAS CAUGHT ON CAMERA. YOU CAN SEE ONE OF THE OFFICERS HOLDING A FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND THE OTHER APPEARS TO STIFLE A LAUGH. THE UNION SAYS THAT THE OFFICERS FEARED RETALIATION FROM THE SUSPECT’S FAMILY WHO WEREN’T ACTUALLY THERE, BUT THE DEPARTMENT IS CONSIDERING THAT THIS WAS A TASTELESS PRANK.>>Adrienne: ACROSS THE COUNTRY PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT COUNTRY PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT BIANCA ANDREESCU, CANADA’S RISING TENNIS STAR. WELL, TODAY, LUCKY ME, I GOT TO TALK WITH HER ABOUT YESTERDAY’S BITTERSWEET VICTORY OVER SERENA WILLIAMS, AND THE OTHER TENNIS SUPERSTAR WHO HAS BECOME A BIG FAN. FAN.>>Bianca Andreescu: I MEAN, BILLIE JEAN KING IS AN ICON, AND I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO FOLLOW IN HER FOOTSTEPS, TO JUST HELP WITH HER FOOTSTEPS, TO JUST HELP WITH WOMEN’S EQUALITY. AND JUST, LIKE, YESTERDAY’S MOMENT, WOMEN SUPPORTING OTHER WOMEN.>>Adrienne: IN JUST A FEW MINUTES WE WILL BRING YOU OUR FULL CONVERSATION.>>>BUT FIRST, TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF THE IMPACT THAT SHE’S ALREADY HAD, GREG ROSS CAUGHT UP WITH SOME YOUNG PLAYERS WHO ARE DARING TO DREAM ABOUT FOLLOWING IN HER FOOTSTEPS.>>Reporter: THEY’RE THE NEXT GENERATION OF CANADIAN TENNIS HOPEFULS COMPETING AT THE SAME CLUB THAT BIANCA ANDREESCU WAS ONCE A MEMBER AND THE SAME TOURNAMENT THAT SHE WON AS A 15-YEAR-OLD BACK IN 2015. NOW FOUR YEARS LATER SHE’S WINNING THE ROGERS CUP. I MEAN, WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT?>>WELL, IT’S REALLY COOL TO SEE ANOTHER CANADIAN HAVING THAT SUCCESS. AND NOW WE GET TO TRAIN AT THE SAME PLACE SHE TRAINED AT WITH THE SAME COACHES AND IT’S INSPIRING TO SEE HER DO SO WELL.>>Reporter: MIA KUPRES AND THE 14-YEAR-OLD ARE INVITED TO THE NATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE IN MONTRÉAL STARTING IN SEPTEMBER, THE SAME PLACE THAT ANDREESCU TRAINS NOW.>>IF WE’RE ON THE SAME PATH, AND MAYBE IT COULD HAPPEN, HOPEFULLY.>>Reporter: THEY SAY THEY’RE NOT ONLY INSPIRED BY HER SUCCESS ON THE COURT, BUT ALSO THE WAY THAT SHE HANDLES HERSELF OFF OF IT. SOMETHING THAT WE SAW A GLIMPSE OF IN SUNDAY’S FINAL.>>ARE YOU OKAY?>>Reporter: A CANDID MOMENT CAUGHT ON CAMERA, THE VETERAN WILLIAMS WIPING AWAY TEARS AFTER BEING FORCED TO WITHDRAW WHILE BEING CONSOLED BY THE 19-YEAR-OLD ANDREESCU. MANY OF THESE YOUNG PLAYERS WERE WATCHING.>>I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL OF HER TO COME IN AND TO, KIND OF LIKE, SUPPORT HER.>>Reporter: IT’S NOTHING NEW FOR THIS COACH WHO COACHED HER FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS. WERE YOU SURPRISED TO SEE BIANCA DO THAT?>>NOT REALLY. SHE HAS THAT CARE FOR PEOPLE AND THAT’S WHAT IMPRESSED ME THE MOST WHEN I STARTED WORKING WITH HER. SHE MAKES YOU FEEL THAT YOU’RE PART OF THE TEAM RIGHT AWAY. AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT WE CONNECTED REALLY WELL.>>Reporter: IT’S ONE OF THE BIG REASONS THAT SHE’S A HIT WITH MANY OF THESE YOUNGER PRAYERS. MANY THEIR OWN EXPERIENCES WITH HER. MANY HAVE HAD THEIR OWN EXPERIENCES WITH HER.>>I HIT WITH HER ONCE AND SHE’S JUST HAVING A REGULAR CONVERSATION, I GUESS. I COULD SAY THAT I HIT WITH A ROGERS CUP CHAMPION, AN INDIAN WELLS CHAMPION. IT’S COOL.>>Reporter: IF ONLY THESE YOUNG PLAYERS COULD HAVE THE SAME MEDIORIC RISE THAT ANDREESCU HAS HAD. JUST TO PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVE, GOING INTO LAST SUMMER SHE WAS 182nd IN THE WORLD RANKINGS. WHEN THE LATEST RANKINGS CAME OUT TODAY SHE HAD MOVED UP TO 14th. GREG ROSS, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Adrienne: SO STAY WITH US, RIGHT AFTER THE BREAK I SIT DOWN WITH BIANCA ANDREESCU AND WE TALK EQUALITY IN SPORTS, HER FAVOURITE PART OF THE TOURNAMENT AND, OF COURSE, THAT MOMENT WITH SERENA WILLIAMS.>>Andrew: THAT SOUNDS PRETTY GREAT.>>>LATER IN OUR “MOMENT” YOU’RE INVITED TO DILDO, NEWFOUNDLAND. YOU’LL HEAR THE SMALL TOWN’S MESSAGE FOR ONE LATE-NIGHT HOST AND HIS REPLY.>>I WOULD TELL JIMMY TO COME TO DILDO BECAUSE THERE’S GREAT PEOPLE HERE. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY. THERE’S SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO. AND I’M SURE THAT HE’D LOVE IT HERE. (*) (*)>>Adrienne: CANADA’S BIANCA ANDREESCU, JUST 19, FLASHING THE PRIZE THAT CONFIRMS THAT SHE’S A CHAMPION ON THE RISE.>>Bianca Andreescu: THIS HAS BEEN A DREAM COME TRUE. THIS WEEK HAS NOT BEEN EASY.>>Adrienne: NOT EASY AT ALL. ANDREESCU CAME TO THE ROGERS CUP FRESH FROM A SHOULDER INJURY THAT KEPT HER IDLE FOR WEEKS.>>ANDREESCU HAS DONE IT.>>Adrienne: WHEN A GROIN PULL SLOWED HER DOWN LAST FRIDAY… SLOWED HER DOWN LAST FRIDAY…>>ANDREESCU GETTING SOME MEDICAL ATTENTION.>>Adrienne: SHE SUMMONED THE IRON WILL THAT SEEMS TO HAVE SET HER APART.>>Bianca Andreescu: WHEN I STEP OUT ON THE COURT I’M FEARLESS, I SHOW NO MERCY, NO MATTER WHO I PLAY.>>Adrienne: FOR THE TOP FIVE — PRIZE SHE FACED LONG-TIME HERO SERENA WILLIAMS. AND WILLIAMS’ OWN INJURY LED TO THIS EXTRAORDINARY MOMENT.>>SO I WATCHED YOU YOUR WHOLE CAREER. YOU’RE A BEAST.>>Adrienne: ANDREESCU COMFORTED HER OPPONENT JUST BEFORE BEING DECLARED THE VICTOR.>>Bianca Andreescu: THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.>>Adrienne: TODAY I SAT DOWN ONCE AGAIN WITH BIANCA ANDREESCU. SO CONGRATULATIONS. YOU ARE THE WINNER. AND I’M WONDERING WHAT WINNING ACTUALLY FEELS LIKE?>>Bianca Andreescu: IT’S REALLY HARD TO DESCRIBE A FEELING LIKE THIS. I MEAN, PLAYING IN FRONT OF MY HOME CROWD. AND JUST BEING ABLE TO WIN AT HOME. I HAVE DEDICATED SO MUCH HARD WORK AND SWEAT ON THAT CENTRE COURT. SO BEING ABLE TO ACTUALLY TAKE THE TITLE THIS WEEK IS TRULY INCREDIBLE. IT’S A BLESSING REALLY.>>Adrienne: AND I KNOW THAT PEOPLE SAY, WELL, YOU KNOW, IT WAS 19 MINUTES IN THE FINAL. BUT YOU ACTUALLY PLAYED MORE TENNIS THIS WEEK THAN ANYBODY ELSE, ANY OF THE OTHER WOMEN ON THAT COURT?>>Bianca Andreescu: YEAH, THIS WEEK HAS NOT BEEN EASY AND I HAVE BEEN PLAYING THREE SETS AND BASICALLY EVERY MATCH, ON THE COURT 2 1/2 HOURS, THREE HOURS EVERY DAY. NO DAYS OFF. IT WASN’T LIKE INDIAN WELLS. SO, YEAH, I’M JUST REALLY PROUD OF HOW MY BODY HELD UP.>>Adrienne: EVEN THOUGH AS YOU SAID THIS IS NOT THE WAY THAT YOU WANTED TO WIN THIS?>>Bianca Andreescu: NO, DEFINITELY NOT. SEEING SERENA GO DOWN LIKE THAT WASN’T EASY TO SEE. I WAS PRETTY CONFUSED AS TO WHAT HAPPENED AT FIRST.>>Adrienne: LIKE, WHAT DID HAPPEN? WHAT WAS THE MOMENT WHEN IT FIRST OCCURRED TO YOU THAT SOMETHING WASN’T QUITE RIGHT WITH SERENA?>>Bianca Andreescu: I DIDN’T THINK THAT ANYTHING WAS WRONG WITH HER. SHE WAS MISSING A BIT MORE THAN USUAL BUT I DIDN’T FEEL THAT SHE WAS IN PAIN OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. WAS IN PAIN OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. BUT I KNEW THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG WHEN SHE SAT DOWN IN BETWEEN GAMES. AND THEN, LIKE TWO SECONDS LATER THE PHYSIO CAME OUT AND THEN THE CHAIR UMPIRE TOLD ME THAT SHE’S NO LONGER ABLE TO PLAY. AND AT THAT MOMENT I FELT — IT’S HARD TO FIND A WORD TO DESCRIBE IT — I’LL JUST SAY “WEIRD” BECAUSE AT THAT MOMENT I DID REALIZE THAT I JUST WON THE ROGERS CUP. BUT IT’S NOT THE WAY THAT I HAD EXPECTED IT TO BE LIKE. AND, I DON’T KNOW, MY INSTINCT JUST WANTED ME TO GO TO GIVE HER THE BIGGEST HUG POSSIBLE. BECAUSE I FELT FOR HER SO MUCH.>>Adrienne: JUST A LITTLE TENTATIVE APPROACHING HER. YOU WENT OVER THERE IMMEDIATELY, BUT WHEN YOU GOT THERE THERE WAS LIKE THIS — WHAT DO I DO.>>Bianca Andreescu: ACTUALLY, NO. I KNEW WHAT TO SAY.>>OH, MY GOD, I’M SO SORRY. ARE YOU OKAY?>>THE MATCH IS OVER.>>Bianca Andreescu: I KNOW THAT SHE KNOWS HOW TO MANAGE THESE THINGS. SHE’S BEEN THROUGH A LOT AS WELL. AND, SADLY, YESTERDAY SHE JUST COULDN’T CONTINUE. AND THAT’S ONE OF THE TOUGHEST DECISIONS THAT AN ATHLETE CAN MAKE. SO I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR HER, FOR WHAT SHE DID.>>Adrienne: WHEN YOU TOOK HER HAND — I’M NOT SURE THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN ANYBODY HOLD SERENA WILLIAMS’ HAND.>>Bianca Andreescu: I DON’T KNOW WHY.>>Adrienne: IT WAS SUCH A CLASSY INSTINCTIVE THING TO DO. SHE SEEMED TO RECOGNIZE THAT.>>Bianca Andreescu: YEAH, I DON’T KNOW, SOMETHING JUST CAME UPON ME AND I JUST WANTED TO GIVE HER THE BIGGEST HUG POSSIBLE.>>Adrienne: HAD YOU ACTUALLY EVER MET HER AND HAD A REAL CONVERSATION WITH HER BEFORE THAT MOMENT?>>Bianca Andreescu: NOPE.>>Adrienne: ARE YOU SERIOUS?>>Bianca Andreescu: YEP. THAT WAS OUR FIRST ENCOUNTER EVER. AND SHE SAID SOME NICE THINGS, ESPECIALLY AFTER I GAVE MY SPEECH, SHE SAID YOU ARE VERY MATURE, I DON’T THINK THAT I COULD HAVE GIVEN THAT SPEECH AT THAT AGE. AND THEN SHE SAID SOME REALLY NICE THINGS IN HER PRESS CONFERENCE WHICH WILL REALLY STICK WITH ME.>>Adrienne: WELL, SHE WAS ASKED WHAT IS YOUR MOMENT OF THE TOURNAMENT AND SHE SAID THAT IT WAS THE MOMENT WITH YOU.>>MY BEST MOMENT IS DEFINITELY TODAY OUT THERE WITH BIANCA, I’M OFFICIALLY A FAN. I WAS BEFORE, LIKE I SAID, BUT I JUST THINK THAT I WAS REALLY SAD AND SHE MADE ME FEEL A LOT BETTER. SO THAT WAS REALLY NICE.>>Adrienne: I’M WONDERING WHAT MEANS MORE TO YOU — WINNING THIS OR WINNING THE ADMIRATION OF SERENA WILLIAMS?>>Bianca Andreescu: UM, YEAH, IT’S CRAZY TO — TO ACTUALLY HEAR THOSE WORDS COME OUT OF HER MOUTH ABOUT ME. I ADMIRE HER A LOT. AND JUST BEING ABLE TO HAVE THAT MOMENT WITH HER AND WHAT SHE SAID ABOUT ME IT WILL TRULY STICK WITH ME FOREVER. I’M SURE.>>Adrienne: IF SOMEONE WERE TO ASK YOU THAT — WAS IT NECESSARILY THIS MOMENT OR WAS THERE ANOTHER MOMENT DURING THAT TOURNAMENT THAT YOU’RE GOING TO TAKE AWAY? MAYBE SOMETHING THAT WE DIDN’T SEE ON TV.>>Bianca Andreescu: BEING ABLE TO CELEBRATE WITH MY PARENTS AFTERWARDS. THEY’RE NOT ABLE TO TRAVEL WITH ME TO EVERY TOURNAMENT. AND THEY DIDN’T TRAVEL WITH ME TO INDIAN WELLS. SO BEING ABLE TO ACTUALLY SHARE THIS MOMENT WITH THEM AT HOME IN MY BACKYARD WAS — I MEAN, AFTER EVERY MATCH — NOT NECESSARILY YESTERDAY BUT JUST HAVING THAT MOMENT WITH THEM MEANS A LOT TO ME.>>Adrienne: THE LAST TIME WE TALKED ABOUT ICONS AND I ASKED IF YOU COULD ASK BILLIE JEAN KING SOMETHING AND WE WEREN’T REALLY SURE WHAT YOU WOULD ASK HER. BUT SHE’S BEEN WRITING ABOUT YOU. AND THREE HOURS AGO SHE WROTE THIS, “AT 19 YEARS OLD, BIANCA SHOWS A LEVEL OF MATURITY WELL BEYOND HER YEARS. THIS IS HOW WOMEN SHOULD TREAT EACH OTHER. HER EMPATHY AND SUPPORT FOR SERENA WERE ADMIRABLE. COMPETITORS AND WOMEN SUPPORTING WOMEN.” WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT FROM THIS LEGEND?>>Bianca Andreescu: WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THAT? I MEAN — EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW THAT’S HAPPENING IN MY LIFE IS INCREDIBLE. I STILL HAVEN’T TOUCHED MY PHONE YET.>>Adrienne: GOOD LUCK.>>Bianca Andreescu: I’M JUST TRYING TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT RIGHT NOW AND JUST TRY TO SAVOUR IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. I MEAN, BILLIE JEAN KING IS AN ICON. AND I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO FOLLOW IN HER FOOTSTEPS TO JUST HELP WITH WOMEN’S EQUALITY. AND JUST, LIKE YESTERDAY’S MOMENT, WOMEN SUPPORTING OTHER WOMEN. I THINK THAT IT’S AN INCREDIBLE — IT’S AN INCREDIBLE THING.>>Adrienne: I ALSO SPOKE WITH ANOTHER WOMAN TODAY, FAYE URBAN THIS MORNING WHO WON IN 1969.>>RIGHT NOW FAYE URBAN SERVING…>>Adrienne: SHE REALLY WANTS TO MEET YOU. SHE SAYS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE WON ANYWAY. SHE GOT IN 1969, $150 FOR HER TROUBLES IN WINNING. AND, YOU KNOW, YOU HAD A VERY HEALTHY PAYCHEQUE YESTERDAY BUT IT WAS HALF OF WHAT RAFAEL NADAL GOT. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT?>>Bianca Andreescu: THAT’S JUST HOW IT IS AT THE MOMENT. BILLIE JEAN KING HAS DONE SO MUCH ALREADY, AND IT’S STARTING TO IMPROVE MORE AND MORE. I MEAN, AT THE GRAND SLAMS NOW IT’S MORE EQUAL THAN IT’S EVER HAS BEEN. BUT, YEAH, IT SHOULD ALWAYS BE ABOUT EQUALITY. I MEAN, MEN AND WOMEN SHOULD DEFINITELY LOOK AT EACH OTHER IN THE SAME WAY. WE’RE ALL HUMAN AT THE END OF THE DAY. SO WHY SHOULDN’T US WOMEN GET THE SAME EQUALITY AS MEN?>>Adrienne: ONE QUESTION THAT I ASKED YOU LAST TIME IS WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS? BECAUSE I PRESUME THEY HAD TO CHANGE AFTER INDIAN WELLS AND I GUESS THAT THEY’LL HAVE TO CHANGE AGAIN NOW. YOU SAID AT THE TIME –>>Bianca Andreescu: I DIDN’T GET A CHANCE TO SIT DOWN WITH MY COACH TO TALK ABOUT THAT YET. BUT IN MY EYES I WOULD LIKE TO MAYBE CRACK THE TOP 15.>>Adrienne: SO NOW IT’S 14. YOU HAVE DONE THAT. SO WHAT’S NEXT?>>Bianca Andreescu: WHAT’S NEXT? WELL, I’M DEFINITELY NOT SATISFIED. I HAVE VERY BIG DREAMS. AND I DON’T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN WHAT I WANT. AND SO I REALLY HOPE THAT I CAN CRACK THE TOP 10 NOW.>>Adrienne: OKAY.>>Bianca Andreescu: AND PLAY IN THE W.T.A. FINALS BY THE END OF THE YEAR.>>Adrienne: THE U.S. OPEN?>>Bianca Andreescu: OH, YES, THE U.S. OPEN, OF COURSE. AND NOW WITH THIS WIN, ESPECIALLY AFTER COMING BACK FROM BEING TWO MONTHS OFF, I THINK THAT IT’S REALLY GIVEN ME CONFIDENCE TO DO REALLY WELL IN THE U.S. OPEN. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT I CAN DO BIG THINGS THERE.>>Adrienne: WELL, YOU’VE GOT A WHOLE COUNTRY THAT HAS HAD SEVERAL HEART ATTACKS IN THE LAST WEEK WATCHING YOU. [laughter]>>Bianca Andreescu: THAT’S WHAT MAKES THE SPORT SO CRAZY AND SO ENJOYABLE TO WATCH.>>Adrienne: AND THAT MOMENT WITH SERENA, I HAVE TO SAY THAT CANADIANS REALLY FELT A KINSHIP WITH YOU IN THAT MOMENT. AND I THINK THAT, YOU KNOW, YOU DIDN’T JUST EARN THE ADMIRATION OF SERENA BUT YOU EARNED A LOT OF RESPECT.>>Bianca Andreescu: THANK YOU, I APPRECIATE IT.>>Adrienne: GOOD LUCK. WOULD YOU LIKE THIS?>>Bianca Andreescu: OH, MY GOSH, YES, I HAVEN’T SEEN THAT YET BUT I’M DEFINITELY GOING TO POST THAT ON MY WALL.>>Adrienne: YOU SHOULD, YOU SHOULD.>>Bianca Andreescu: THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>Adrienne: CAN WE SHAKE HANDS?>>Bianca Andreescu: GIVE ME A HUG. I’M A HUGGER.>>Adrienne: YOU’RE A HUGGER?>>Bianca Andreescu: SO NICE SEEING YOU AGAIN. THAT WAS AWESOME.>>Adrienne: SO HER MATCH AGAINST SERENA WILLIAMS DREW THE BIGGEST CANADIAN TV AUDIENCE EVER FOR THE ROGERS CUP WOMEN’S FINAL. AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT MORE THAN 590,000 PEOPLE WERE WATCHING THE WOMEN. THAT IS NEARLY DOUBLE YESTERDAY’S AUDIENCE FOR THE MEN. ANDREESCU’S NEXT CHANCE TO SHINE IS AT THE U.S. OPEN. IT STARTS TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY.>>Andrew: BUTTERFLIES JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.>>>OKAY, STILL AHEAD ON “THE NATIONAL”…>>>PREVENTING MEDICAL ERRORS. THE STEPS THAT HOSPITALS ARE TAKING TO FIX THE PROBLEM AND KEEP PATIENTS SAFE.>>OTHER INDUSTRIES THAT ARE HIGH RISK LIKE AVIATION WOULD NEVER ALLOW THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TO DIE AS A RESULT OF THEIR SERVICES. (*) (*)>>WHEN MY MOM WAS IN HOSPITAL THERE WERE A NUMBER OF ADVERSE EVENTS, PREVENTABLE ADVERSE EVENTS, THAT OCCURRED IN HER CARE THAT ULTIMATELY LED UP TO HER DEATH.>>Andrew: DRUG MIX-UPS, BOTCHED SURGERIES, EVEN ACCIDENTAL FALLS. MEDICAL ERRORS CAN HAVE A DEVASTATING IMPACT, SETTING BACK A PATIENT’S RECOVERY, PROLONGING A HOSPITAL STAY, EVEN ENDING A LIFE. AND A NEW STUDY FINDS THAT THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL COSTS AS WELL. SO AS CHRISTINE BIRAK SHOWS US, TACKLING THOSE MISTAKES COULD BE INVALUABLE.>>Reporter: THEY ARE RARE, BUT WE KNOW THAT MISTAKES HAPPEN IN HOSPITALS. FEW ARE THIS DRAMATIC. MOST INVOLVE INCORRECT DRUGS AND DOSES. USING MORE THAN 600,000 ONTARIO HOSPITAL ADMISSION RECORDS OVER A YEAR, RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT NEARLY 6% OF PATIENTS EXPERIENCED HARM DURING THEIR HOSPITAL STAY. MOST OF THE MISTAKES WERE MEDICATION ERRORS. FOLLOWED BY INFECTIONS ACQUIRED IN HOSPITAL, PROCEDURAL ERRORS AND PATIENT ACCIDENTS. THOSE HARMS ADDED TO OVER 400,000 ADDED DAYS IN HOSPITAL, COSTING THE PROVINCE AN ESTIMATED A BILLION DOLLARS IN ONE YEAR.>>ANY INTERVENTION THAT COSTS LESS THAN $1.1 BILLION TO REVERSE ADVERSE EVENTS WOULD BE WORTH IT.>>WHEN THEY WENT AND GRABBED A BOX, GRABBED RIGHT INSTEAD OF LEFT AND GOT THE POTASSIUM CHLORIDE INSTEAD OF THE SODIUM CHLORIDE.>>Reporter: THE BOTTLES LOOKED SIMILAR, A SIMPLE SUBSTITUTION ERROR 15 YEARS AGO COST DEBORAH PROWSE’S MOTHER HER LIFE.>>OTHER INDUSTRIES WHICH ARE HIGH RISK, LIKE AVIATION, WOULD NEVER ALLOW PEOPLE TO DIE AS A RESULT OF THEIR SERVICES. WE NEED TO NOT TOLERATE THE CURRENT LEVEL OF ADVERSE EVENTS.>>IT’S NOT ABOUT THE NUMBER OF ERRORS, IT’S ABOUT HOW WE STUDY THEM, HOW WE ANALYSE THEM AND HOW WE LEARN FROM THEM.>>Reporter: ENTER BLACK BOX. A MONITORING SYSTEM PIONEERED HERE AT ST. MICHAEL’S HOSPITAL IN TORONTO IS NOW BEING USED AROUND THE WORLD. AS IN AIRPLANES IT RECORDS CONVERSATIONS, ALONG WITH SURGERIES, OPERATING ROOM TRAFFIC AND HUNDREDS OF OTHER DATA POINTS. IT’S FOUND THAT SIMPLE DISTRACTIONS CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS ERRORS.>>PEOPLE COMING IN THE ROOM, JUST TO ASK HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND AND DID YOU WATCH THE HOCKEY GAME LAST NIGHT? AND IRRELEVANT CONVERSATIONS DURING CRITICAL STEPS OF THE PROCEDURE.>>Reporter: AS A RESULT THE HOSPITAL IS INSTITUTING NEW OPERATING ROOM PROCEDURES. WHILE NO ONE EXPECTS MEDICAL ERRORS TO REACH ZERO, EVERYONE AGREES THAT THE GOAL IS TO KEEP HOSPITAL PATIENTS AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE. CHRISTINE BIRAK, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.>>Adrienne: STILL AHEAD ON “THE NATIONAL”…>>>FROM A LOTTERY WIN TO A BIG HEADACHE. WHY ONE NOVA SCOTIA FAMILY’S DREAM HOME IS CATCHING THEIR NEIGHBOURS’ ATTENTION.>>THEY’RE PUTTING A LOT OF MONEY IN TO COME UP HERE AND RELAX AND HAVE A GREAT TIMASTS. (*)>>Andrew: WELCOME BACK. A FRIEND OF THE DAYTON, OHIO, SHOOTER IS NOW FACING FEDERAL FIREARMS CHARGES. THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SAYS THAT ETHAN KOLLIE BOUGHT THE GOOD ARE BODY ARMOUR AND THE 100-ROUND DRUG MAGAZINE THAT WAS USED BY CONNOR BETTS. BUT THERE’S NO EVIDENCE THAT HE KNEW THAT BETTS WAS PLANNING A MASS SHOOTING. SO THE CHARGES NOT TO DO WITH THE SHOOTING ITSELF BUT ACTUALLY LYING ON THE FORM TO PURCHASE THE FIREARM SAYING THAT HE DIDN’T USE DRUGS. CONNOR BETTS WAS SHOT AND KILLED BY POLICE JUST OVER A WEEK AGO AFTER HE OPENED FIRE IN DAYTON’S ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT, KILLING NINE PEOPLE, INCLUDING HIS OWN SISTER.>>THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS ANNOUNCED MAJOR CHANGES TO THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT, SPARKING OUTCRY FROM ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS SAYING THAT THE MOVE WILL SPEED UP THE EXTINCTION OF MANY SPECIES. THE NEW RULES WHICH GO INTO EFFECT IN 30 DAYS ALLOW THE GOVERNMENT TO CONSIDER THE ECONOMIC COSTS OF PROTECTING A SPECIES. 10 STATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL SAY THEY PLAN TO SUE OVER THE NEW REGULATION.>>>AND TYPHOON LEKIMA CONTINUES TO CARVE A DESTRUCTIVE PATH THROUGH CHINA’S EAST COAST. AT LEAST 44 PEOPLE DEAD AND MORE THAN A DOZEN MISSING. SINCE MAKING LANDFALL EARLY SUNDAY MORNING, THE TYPHOON HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD PAST SHANGHAI AND FORCING THE EVACUATION OF MORE THAN A MILLION PEOPLE AND RACKING UP AN ESTIMATED $2.7 BILLION IN DAMAGES.>>Adrienne: IT IS A DREAM HOME, COMPLETELY TURN KEY, OVERLOOKING THE OCEAN. BUT THE FAMILY WHO WON IT IN A FUNDRAISING LOTTERY LAST YEAR INSIST THEY MAY BE FORCED TO SELL. THEY CAN’T AFFORD THE UPKEEP WITHOUT RENTING IT OUT ON AIRBNB. BUT AS JACK JULIAN EXPLAINS, THE NEIGHBOURS ARE HAVING NONE OF IT.>>Reporter: THEY CALL IT A DREAM COTTAGE FOR A REASON. YOU COULDN’T ASK FOR A SWEETER VIEW. AND TROY FAHIE STILL SEEMS A LITTLE OVER AWED REMEMBERING WHEN HIS FIANCÉE’S TICKET HIT BIG.>>THE TWO OF US WERE LIKE THAT HIGH OFF THE GROUND THE WHOLE DRIVE UP. IT WAS SO CRAZY, RIGHT?>>Reporter: THEY CALL IT A COTTAGE BUT IT’S REALLY A LUXURY SEASIDE HOME WITH A VIEW OF CHESTER BASIN SOUTH OF HALIFAX. IT CAME FULLY FURNISHED AND READY TO GO.>>BASICALLY THEY TOOK EVERY IDEA THAT WE EVER THOUGHT OF OR DREAMT AND THEY PUT IT IN THIS PLACE.>>Reporter: BUT FAHIE AND HIS FAMILY AREN’T READY TO MOVE IN QUITE YET. HE WORKS AS AN INDUSTRIAL CLEANER IN HALIFAX. HIS FIANCÉE IS A ROOFER AND THE KIDS ARE STILL IN SCHOOL. HE WANTS TO MOVE HERE IN FIVE OR SIX YEARS’ TIME.>>WE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA TO PUT IT ON AIRBNB AND THE MONEY FROM THAT WILL HELP TO PAY THE TAXES AND, YOU KNOW, IF THERE’S ANY UPKEEP OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. PLUS THE OTHER BILLS THA BILLS THAT COME IN WITH IT, THE POWER AND WHATNOT.>>Reporter: FAHIE SAYS THAT HIS GUESTS LOVE THE PLACE BUT THEY DON’T FEEL ALL THAT WELCOME IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD.>>THE OLD STINK EYE, LIKE THEY’LL WAVE TO CERTAIN NEIGHBOURS AND THEY’LL JUST PUT THEIR NOSE UP IN THE AIR AND WALK AWAY.>>Reporter: AT $400 PER NIGHT IT’S NOT THE VIBE THAT HE WAS HOPING FOR.>>I FEEL REALLY BAD BECAUSE THEY’RE COMING FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. I MEAN WE’VE GOT SOME FROM TEXAS, FROM SCOTLAND. WE JUST HAD GUESTS LEAVE FROM THE MIDDLE EAST. SO THEY’RE PUTTING A LOT OF MONEY TO COME UP HERE AND RELAX AND HAVE A GREAT TIME AND THEN TO BE KIND OF SHUNNED AND TREATED LIKE THEY’RE NOT WANTED.>>Reporter: HE SAYS THAT SOME RESIDENTS HAVE EVEN COMPLAINED TO HIS GUESTS DIRECTLY.>>SOMEBODY SHOWED UP HERE AND TOLD THEM THEY HAD TO BE IN BED BY 11:00. AND NONE OF THE NEIGHBOURS WANTED AN AIRBNB HERE.>>Reporter: FAHIE’S PROBLEMS HAVE MOVED BEYOND ANGRY NEIGHBOURS. IN TWO WEEKS THE NEIGHBOURHOOD ASSOCIATION WILL HOLD A VOTE ON BANNING SORT-TERM RENTALS AND FAHIE SAYS THAT COULD SPELL THE END OF HIS DREAMS OF A SEASIDE RETIREMENT.>>WE’D HAVE TO BE PENNY PINCHING, WE WOULDN’T HAVE MUCH OF A LIFE, RIGHT. EVERY OUNCE OF MONEY THAT WE’D HAVE WE’D HAVE TO PUT OFF TO THE SIDE TO KEEP THIS PLACE.>>Reporter: FAHIE’S NEIGHBOURS WOULDN’T TALK TO CBC ABOUT THEIR AIRBNB CONCERNS AND THE DEVELOPER ALSO DECLINED TO COMMENT. JACK JULIAN, CBC NEWS, CHESTER BASIN.>>Andrew: OKAY, UP NEXT ON “THE NATIONAL”…>>>THE SMALL CANADIAN TOWN ATTRACTING A WHOLE LOT OF ATTENTION.>>IT’S BEEN ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL. I HAVE SEEN MORE PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY IN THE PAST TWO ORALLY — IN THE PAST TWO DA>>Andrew: LONG GIGGLED ABOUT HERE IN CANADA, THE TINY TOWN OF DILDO, NEWFOUNDLAND, IS NOW IN THE INTERNATIONAL SPOTLIGHT. IT’S BEING WOOED BY AN UNLIKELY SUITOR, A LATE-NIGHT HOST IS LOOKING TO ADD TO HIS RESUME. MAYBE DILDOIANS ARE USED TO GETTING ATTENTION BUT JIMMY KIMMEL JUST RECENTLY DISCOVERED THEM AND NOW HAVING NEVER BEEN THERE HE’S LAUNCHED A CAMPAIGN TO BECOME ITS MAYOR. HE FEATURED THE COMMUNITY ON HIS SHOW LAST WEEK AND SINCE THEN TOURISTS HAVE BEEN FLOCKING TO IT. SO DILDO’S MOMENT IN THE LIMELIGHT IS OUR “MOMENT” TONIGHT. (*) * OUR NAME WILL NEVER CHANGE >>EVERYTHING IS BOOMING, LIKE, AROUND DILDO.>>WE’RE FIERCELY PROUD OF OUR NAME. WE’RE FIERCELY PROUD OF OUR HERITAGE.>>DILDO IS SPECIAL BECAUSE IT’S A BEAUTIFUL TOWN, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.>>SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO AND I’M SURE THAT HE WOULD LOVE IT HERE.>>IT’S VERY EXCITING TO SEE ALL OF THE TOURISTS AROUND GETTING MORE AND MORE EVERY DAY, AND THEY WALK INTO THE COFFEE SHOP. AND EVERYBODY ENJOYS TO BE A PART OF JIMMY KIMMEL’S CAMPAIGN.>>WE DON’T HAVE A PROPER TOWN COUNCIL AND WE’RE NOT A MUNICIPALITY, SO WE’RE NOT ABLE TO OFFICIALLY ELECT A MAYOR. BUT THE GOOD SPORTS WE ARE, WELL, IF HIS PLATFORM IS GOOD, WELL, YOU NEVER KNOW, WE MIGHT MAKE A MAYOR OF SOME SORT. (*) * FOR LIBERTY (*) * THE LOVING PLACE WE ALL CALL DILDO *>>Adrienne: OKAY. SO, THANK YOU, JIMMY KIMMEL, FOR ADDING TO THE ECONOMY OF DILDO, NEWFOUNDLAND. BUT WE WERE JUST SAYING THAT THIS IS NOT NEWS. I DON’T KNOW IF SOMEONE GAVE HIM AN ATLAS FOR A PRESENT.>>Andrew: THERE’S A LOT OF FUNNY NAMES FOR CANADIAN CITIES.>>Adrienne: FOR SURE. THIS ONE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME BUT RESEARCHERS HERE ARE AT “THE NATIONAL.”>>Andrew: YEAH. SO APPARENTLY MAYBE THERE’S A SERIOUS SIDE TO DILDO AS WELL AND, YOU KNOW, WE DON’T KNOW THE EXACT ORIGIN AND HOW IT CAME TO BE. BUT IT’S WORTH KNOWING THAT THERE IS A DILDO ISLAND, A NAME WHICH GOES BACK TO 1711. AND A DILDO IS ALSO REFERRING TO LIKE PINS THAT ACT AS PIVOTS FOR OARS IN A ROWBOAT.>>Adrienne: AND I THINK THAT WE’RE OUT OF TIME.>>Andrew: THERE’S A DILDO CACTUS IS ANOTHER THING. YES, WE’LL JUST LEAVE IT THERE. THAT’S PROBABLY THE SAFEST AND MOST PRUDENT THING TO DO.>>Adrienne: GOOD CALL.>>Andrew: THAT’S “THE NATIONAL” FOR THIS AUGUST 12th. GOODNIGHT.>>Adrienne: GOODNIGHT.
