Global National: Nov. 23, 2021 | Vital BC rail line reopens as supply chain backlog mounts



Some of British Columbia’s key roads remain closed after landslides and floods triggered by an extreme weather disaster. But one vital rail line has reopened, and another will soon follow. Mike Armstrong looks at their mountainous task still ahead for the truck industry, as the supply chain backlog builds up.

More than a week after Merritt, British Columbia was evacuated due to flooding, some residents are now being allowed to return home. As Darrian Matassa-Fung reports, Mayor Linda Brown is warning that Merritt is now a different city.

In Ottawa, Governor General Mary Simon laid out the top priorities of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s second minority government, as she read the throne speech to officially open the 44th Parliament. David Akin explains how the opposition is taking issue with the lack of details in the government’s agenda. And Mercedes Stephenson looks at Trudeau’s strategy, what priorities were missing, and whether opposition parties will work with the government.

Despite Canada’s pledge to rescue and resettle families fleeing Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, many remain separated after the chaotic evacuation from Kabul. Jeff Semple spoke with an Afghan mother in Canada about how she was forced to leave behind her husband, who worked as a Canadian Armed Forces interpreter, and their daughter, as they wait anxiously for Ottawa to take action.

And two months after becoming the first country to adopt cryptocurrency as legal tender, El Salvador is now planning to build an entire city backed by Bitcoin. Redmond Shannon explains how feasible the ambitious project really is, and why a volcano plays a vital role.

For the last year I haven't even seen my child except for complaining about being in pain between her legs on January 6th. Not fun. I've been cAlling the cops on the mother for kidnaping and the Bedford police in Quebec have done nothing but laugh and hang up. After saying she's ok cause they sent a cop 4 months after January 6th and told them to stop talking to me. native, man white English I am trying to find and save my child . Brooklyn Marie Dunnigan age 5 .is hopefully found I'd love to see her again . please. so I went all the way to Quebec .thinking I could even still see my child like I was told by the mother two years ago . No answer from Stephany Belair Dunnigan. Cops Quebec tell me I have to go all the way to Alberta back where the child's been taken from for the last 3 years these cops have only been playing games with me and my child .

  3. The RT HON Mary Simon 🌹is the best since David Lloyd Johnson. I’m definitely a prouder Canadian. DELIGHTED! 💯 🇨🇦

  4. ALL PEOPLE NEED TO BE TREATED EQUAL . STOP PICKING ON RACES Weather Native or White Folks . We ALL Have A Brain To Use A Heart To Use All All Bleed RED BLOOD . White People Work Very Hard in this Country Yet the Native People Always Want Everything Free . White People should Start Screaming > Discrimination <The White People Pay Lots of Taxes on Everything along With Medical Bills .And Pay High Rent extra . Where these Natives and Extra People that Trudeau Brought into Canada Hoot and Holler .They get Money Handed over to them . Jobs For Canadian get Taken Away On Canadian People that Want and Need To Work . It's Time our So Called Government Takes a Good Look at These Factors
    Natives Hitch Then want Pitty Parties , They DON'T Cut They Burn IT And BURN DOWN THEIR HOUSE They Want A FREE NEW HOUSE Built For Them . I Know Of Native Where This Was Done . People BURN The Grass Burning Down their House And Their 2 Young Children In The House . Then Mad Because They wanted A New House . Lets Call It What It Is . It Is Racism When It Comes To White Canadian People !!!!!Now More Immigrants to Take Away More From Canadians .The 1 it Shows in the News Clip . Look at the Furniture Living Off TAX PAYERS
    CANADIAN PEOPLE THAT LOST THEIR HOMES DO TO BRITISH COLUMBIA FLOODING AND FARMS LIVE STOCK GET ONLY $2000 Dollars . THIS IS CANADIAN WHITE RACISM !!!

  5. The flood disproportionately affects women and people of colour.
    We need to address racially and sexually motivated flooding

  6. can you not put out other news then this flood for the past 2 weeks its been 10 minutes of your 20 minute show come on i get it the whole world gets it but isnt there something else you can report on????

  7. Imagine that 30 min. to obtain a permit for land restructuring, this tells you when it matters things happen, as far as the bitcoin approval in El Salvador the Federal Reserve banks that are owned by very few people will be creating mass unrest very shortly as their life line is about to be cut.

  8. Promises of immigration——came at a bad time because Trudeau had to have his election first—-priorities over the people again

  9. Absolute evil does as evil wil…canadian gov…needs to realize vacx or not we all can contract & transmit covid …stop divide between vacx & unvacx…personal decision …natural immunity far better than vacx…grow a spine gov….stand up to pfizer…hold them resposible…stop jab to children stop bending to big pharma

  10. Any parent lets their children to be vaccinated deserves what they think is going to do it's not going to save Canada at all Justin Trudeau is a brainless person he's a failure to Canada

  11. In the Case of Southern British Columbia Water 💦🌊 Ocean and the City 🏙️🌆🏙️ Survival …Better Storm Channels have to be Dug…The Vedder Cannel has to be Dug out there is so Much ⌛⏳ Sand in it and like a Hourglass it pushes out the Water 🌊💦 higher and higher….The Sumas Canal has to be Dug out too much Sediment Sand etc…Better and More New Pumping Stations…better Rip-Rap Rocks for Building Bases of Roads&Railways…….so they will not be washed out in Extreme Weather Events!¡!

  12. Atmospheric River 🤦🏻‍♂️ That’s a new one. That’s a journalists “wet” dream of a new phrase. It’s heavy rain! Got it? No need to reinvent the wheel! Sheesh!

  13. Love you Robin. Love you Canadians.

    Began a special ''Dragon Army Emergency Scenario Workout Week Event'' dedicated to ongoing relief efforts with the crisis knows as ''November 2021 Pacific Northwest floods''. Calling for an Integrated North American Operation and Mass PPP financing for relief efforts. Thus will dedicate workouts to the relief efforts on the ground. Since like to offer more than bla bla bla am willingly loving offering all civilian & military personnel involved in rescue & relief work free massage sessions *( learned massage therapy during COVID and can do guided ones ) to those willingly loving ro receive. That is my offer in Hawk Island aka Montreal. Am living the Worst Financial Crisis with this COVID so cannot finance the motel/hotel and food thus am calling on the multimillionaires & billionaires n government to finance your lodgings & food security if u come stay n take my offer. . Get tested, get vaccinated & increase in hygienik practices in publik & private. Love ya.

  14. Someone who hires people because of their race is racist. The best person for the job should be hired. D. Head Trudeau is the racist

  15. Sure hope we can kill the mask mandate, business limitations etc once the kids are vaccinated. I sure as heck can’t see why we need them after that. Who would we be protecting?
