Domestic Violence and Abuse

Here & Now Monday August 5 2019


>>Announcer: THIS IS CBC “HERE & NOW.” (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO SPEND YOUR SUMMER ON THE WEST COAST HAS GOTTEN A BIT MORE BEAUTIFUL.>>BEFORE YOU COULDN’T WALK ON THE BEACH WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT BROKEN GLASS.>>WE’LL HEAR WHAT HAPPENED TO PASADENA BEACH COMING UP.>>Peter: WELCOME TO “HERE & NOW.” I’M PETER COWAN.>>>IT’S THE NEW PLAYGROUND FOR ST. JOHN’S BUT COUNCIL WON’T HAVE TO PAY TO BUILD IT. IT COMES WITH A CATCH THOUGH. IT’S NOT HARD TO TELL THE NEW ACCESSIBLE PLAYGROUND IS SPONSORED BY CANADIAN TIRE. IT COMES COMPLETE WITH LOGOS, CANADIAN TIRE COLOURS AND THE WHOLE THING IS EVEN BUILT IN THE SHAPE OF AN 11,000-SQUARE-FOOT TRIANGLE. “HERE & NOW’S” KATIE BREEN IS LOOKING INTO THIS. SO, KATIE, WHERE IS THIS NEW PLAYGROUND GOING?>>IT’S GOING IN HERE AT MUNDI POND PARK. YOU CAN SEE WHAT THE PARK LOOKS LIKE RIGHT NOW, THERE’S A SWING SET AND AN OUTDOOR GYM. IT’S NOTHING EXTRAVAGANT AND NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT IS GOING IN NEXT YEAR. CANADIAN TIRE JUMPSTART CHARITIES IS GIVING THIS PLAYGROUND TO THE CITY OF ST. JOHN’S. DOUBLE WIDE RAMPS FOR WHEELCHAIRS AND STROLLERS AND A QUIET ZONE FOR KIDS WITH SENSORY NEEDS, ON A RED RUBBERIZED 11,000-SQUARE-FOOT IT CANADIAN TIRE LOGO.>>AND IT’S, HEY, WE’LL PUT A PLAQUE SOMEWHERE IN THE PARK TO SAY THIS IS FUNDED BY THIS FOUNDATION AND BY THIS COMPANY. AND NOW INCREASINGLY COMES ARE SAYING THAT WE WANT MORE BANG FOR OUR BUCK. I THINK THAT PERSONALLY FROM A BUSINESS STANDPOINT YOU KIND OF GO AT WHAT POINT ARE YOU TRYING TO DEMONSTRATE CORPORATE PHILANTHROPY AND AT WHAT POINT IS GREAT BRANDING AND GREAT MARKETING.>>Reporter: THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE RED MAT AND THE DULL GREY EQUIPMENT HELPS KIDS WITH SENSORY ISSUES.>>WHEN YOU LOOK AT COLOURS, I MEAN, IT’S ALWAYS A SUBJECTIVE CONVERSATION. BUT I WOULD GO BACK TO — NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THE COLOURING, BUT ABOUT THE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT AND I LIKE TO FOCUS ON THAT IN TERMS OF WHAT IS DELIVERING AND THE VARIOUS KIDS OF ALL NEEDS THAT IT CATERS TO.>>Reporter: THE CITY WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PREPARING THE LAND AND REMOVING EXISTING EQUIPMENT. ONCE INSTALLED IT WILL ALSO HAVE TO MAINTAIN EVERYTHING. THE NEW PARK IS PART OF JUMPSTART’S COMMITMENT TO BUILD AN ACCESSIBLE PLAYGROUND IN EACH OF THE PROVINCES AND TERRITORIES. AND FIVE SIMILAR-LOOKING ONES HAVE ALREADY BEEN BUILT. THE COUNCILLOR SAYS THAT THE CITY COULD NOT HAVE AFFORDED THIS PLAYGROUND ON ITS OWN AND HE’S FINE WITH THE BRANDING IF IT MEANS THAT ALL KIDS HAVE A PLACE TO PLAY.>>ONCE THIS IS BUILT AND IT’S INSTALLED AND PEOPLE COME TO LOOK AT IT, I DON’T THINK THAT THEREBY THEIR MAIN CONCERN. WHEN THEY SEE PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS AND PEOPLE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES AND IMPAIRMENT ISSUES AND THEY SEE THIS IN USE I THINK THAT WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF.>>Reporter: THIS IS THE SAME LOCATION FOR THE NEW PROPOSED MUSE CENTRE. THERE’S CONTENTION IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD ABOUT HAVING THAT FACILITY MOVED HERE, BUT WHETHER OR NOT IT DOES, THE PARK WILL BE GOING IN BELOW BECAUSE THE CITY SAYS THAT IT’S CENT REALLY LOCATED AND ON A BUS ROUTE. THE CITY SAYS THAT PUBLIC CONSULTATION IS NOT REQUIRED BECAUSE THE AREA IS ZONED PROPERLY FOR A PARK. LIVE IN ST. JOHN’S, I’M KATIE BREEN FOR “HERE & NOW.”>>Ashley: WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND IT WAS ACROSS MOST OF THE PROVINCE THIS WEEKEND. THE TEMPERATURES MUCH WARMER IN THE 30° RANGE IN SOME CASES IS WHAT IT FELT LIKE. WITH THAT HUMIDITY. BUT WE DO HAVE THOSE TEMPERATURES THAT HAVE DROPPED QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY FOR — ESPECIALLY EASTERN NEWFOUNDLAND AND THE ISLAND. WE DO HAVE SOME THUNDERSTORMS THAT ARE ROLLING THROUGH RIGHT NOW. IT’S UP THROUGH CENTRAL. THAT’S GOING TO CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT FEW HOUR AND I’LL HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS AND WE’LL LOOK AHEAD BECAUSE WEDNESDAY IS A BIT OF AN IMPORTANT DAY AND I’LL HAVE THAT FORECAST WHEN I COME BACK. (♪♪♪)>>Peter: WELL, IT’S TIME TO SAY HELLO TO JEREMY EATON OUT IN THE FIELD OR I GUESS OUT ON THE COURTS. WHERE EXACTLY ARE YOU, JEREMY?>>Reporter: PETER, TONIGHT WE’RE AT THE GREEN BELT TENNIS CLUB, WHAT IS AFFECTIONATELY KNOWN AS “THE BUBBLE.” IT’S A LITTLE BIT DRIZZLY OUT HERE IN ST. JOHN’S AND I’LL TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT COMING UP. AND WE’RE HERE TO TALK ABOUT TENNIS AND IN PARTICULAR THE MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY TENNIS TEAM WHO ARE ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING THAT THEY’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE. THEY’RE GOING TO STAY TUNED TO HEAR WHAT THAT’S ALL ABOUT. THAT’S LATER IN THE SHOW, PETER.>>Peter: A PROVINCIAL COURT JUDGE HAS ARREST WARRANTS FOR TWO AMERICAN WOMEN ACCUSED OF MAKING BOMB THREATS AND PUBLISHING FALSE INFORMATION. THEY WERE PICKED UP AT THE ST. JOHN’S INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN JUNE AND THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE IN COURT BUT THEY NEVER SHOWED UP. “HERE & NOW’S” ARIANA KELLAND SHOWED UP.>>Reporter: WHEN THE CASE OF SHARYN RICHARDSON AND HEPZIBAH NANNA WERE CALLED IN THE ST. JOHN’S COURTROOM ON FRIDAY THEY WERE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. BUT THE COURT DEW POINTS FROM WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TEXAS, SHOWED THAT THEY WERE PREOCCUPIED — IN JAIL. BOTH WOMEN WERE BOOKED LAST WEEK ON UNRELATED CHARGES IN THE STATES. 29-YEAR-OLD NANNA WAS ARRESTED ON A SINGLE COUNT OF RESISTING ARREST LAST WEDNESDAY. THE NEXT DAY 42-YEAR-OLD RICHARDSON WAS PICKED UP ON CHARGES OF RESISTING ARREST AND VIOLATING A PROTECTION ORDER. THEY WERE RELEASED ON BOND DAYS LATER. BACK IN JUNE, THE R.N.C. WAS CALLED TO THE ST. JOHN’S INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ABOUT SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES. RICHARDSON AND NANNA ALLEGEDLY MADE A BOMB THREAT ON TWITTER AND FALSELY ACCUSED TWO LOCAL LAWYERS OF TRAFFICKING A 14-YEAR-OLD. NANNA HAS 90,000 FOLLOWERS ON FACEBOOK WHERE SHE DOES LIVE VIDEO SERMONS. SHE ALSO HAS SEVERAL BOOKS LISTED ON AMAZON AND REFERS TO HERSELF AS HAVING A RADICAL “HOLD NOTHING BACK INTIMATE HEART-TO-HEART RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.” FOLLOWING THEIR ARREST IN JUNE, A JUDGE RELEASED BOTH WOMEN ON BAIL AND ALLOWED THEM TO RETURN TO THE UNITED STATES. BUT AFTER THEY FAILED TO SHOW UP FOR COURT ON FRIDAY, WARRANTS WERE ISSUED FOR THEIR ARREST. NOW WHETHER OR NOT THEY’LL VOLUNTARILY RETURN OR IF THE PROSECUTION WILL MAKE SURE THAT THEY COME BACK, WELL, THAT’S STILL UP IN THE AIR. ARIANA KELLAND, CBC NEWS, ST. JOHN’S.>>Peter: A MEMBER OF THE LABRADOR LAND PROTECTORS GROUP WHO MADE HEADLINES FOR HER OPPOSITION TO THE MUSKRAT FALLS PROJECT IS JUMPING INTO POLITICS. BEATRICE HUNTER ANNOUNCED ON TWIT THEY’RE SHE’S SEEKING THE FEDERAL N.D.P. NOMINATION FOR THE RIDING OF LABRADOR. IF SHE WINS SHE’LL HAVE TO FACE INCUMBENT YVONNE JONES. HUNTER MADE HEADLINES IN 2017 WHEN SHE WAS JAILED FOR 10 DAYS BECAUSE SHE REFUSED TO ABIDE BY A COURT INJUNCTION BARRING PROTESTERS FROM THE MUSKRAT FALLS SITE. BUT SHE SAYS THAT THE MEGA-PROJECT ISN’T THE ONLY ISSUE ON HER RADAR. HUNTER SAYS IF SHE’S ELECTED SHE WOULD ALSO WORK TO HELP RIGOLET TO SECURE A NEW GAS STATION.>>>TORONTO’S POLICE CHIEF SAYS HE’S PUTTING ADDITIONAL RESOURCES IN PLACE AFTER A RASH OF SHOOTINGS IN CANADA’S LARGEST CITY. IT’S AFTER AN EARLY MORNING INCIDENT THAT LEFT FIVE PEOPLE WITH GUNSHOT WOUNDS.>>I WILL SAY THAT THIS IS NOT A NORMAL WEEKEND IN THE CITY OF TORONTO. I DO NOT ANTICIPATE IN THE THREE-DAY OR THE TWO-DAY STAND THAT WE’LL TALK ABOUT 13 PEOPLE SHOT. THIS IS NOT TORONTO.>>Peter: GUNFIRE RANG OUT AT A NIGHTCLUB WHEN A MAN PULLED OUT A GUN AND STARTED FIRING. THERE WAS AN ALTERCATION IN THE BACK OF THE CLUB BEFORE THE SHOTS WERE HEARD IT. LEFT ONE MAN WITH LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES AND FOUR OTHERS, INCLUDING TWO WOMEN, IN NON-LIFE-THREATENING CONDITION. THE POLICE ARE GOING OVER THE SECURITY VIDEO AS THEY LOOK FOR THE SUSPECTS. THE POLICE CHIEF SAYS THAT THE CASE CAN BE CRACKED BUT IT’S ASKING MORE WITNESSES TO COME FORWARD. THE TORONTO POLICE WERE CALLED TO 11 SEPARATE FIREARM INCIDENTS THAT HAVE LEFT 13 PEOPLE WITH GUNSHOT WOUNDS.>>>WELL, U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SPOKE OUT TODAY AFTER TWO SEPARATE MASS SHOOTINGS OVER THE WEEKEND THAT LEFT MORE THAN 30 PEOPLE DEAD.>>President Donald Trump: CULTURAL CHANGE IS HARD, BUT EACH OF US CAN CHOOSE TO BUILD A CULTURE THAT CELEBRATES THE INHERENT WORTH AND DIGNITY OF EVERY HUMAN LIFE. THAT’S WHAT WE HAVE TO DO.>>Peter: TWO MORE PEOPLE DIED TODAY IN HOSPITAL AFTER SATURDAY’S ATTACK AT A SHOPPING CENTRE IN EL PASO, TEXAS. THAT BRINGS THE NUMBER OF DEAD IN THAT INCIDENT TO 22. THE GUNMAN ALLEGEDLY POSTED A RACIST MANIFESTO ONLINE SHORTLY BEFORE HE OPENED FIRE. JUST HOURS LATER ANOTHER MAN SHOT AND KILLED NINE PEOPLE IN DAYTON, OHIO. IN A SPEECH, TRUMP MENTIONED THE HATRED BEHIND THE ATTACKS BUT AS THE CBC’S KAREN PAULS REPORTS, THE PRESIDENT STEERED CLEAR OF ADDRESSING GUN CONTROL. AND THE RCMP IS ENDING ITS SEARCH THROUGH A RIVER IN NORTHERN MANITOBA. AS THE HUNT FOR TWO B.C. FUGITIVES STRETCHES INTO A THIRD WEEK. AND AN RCMP DIVE TEAM WAS OUT IN THE FAST-MOVING NELSON RIVER NEAR GILLAM YESTERDAY. THEY WERE SENT THERE AFTER A DAMAGED ALUMINUM BOAT WAS SPOTTED ON THE SHORE ON FRIDAY. POLICE AREN’T SAYING IF THEY BELIEVE THAT THE BOAT IS CONNECTED TO THE FUGITIVES. KAM McLEOD AND BRYER SCHMEGELSKY ARE WANTED IN CONNECTION WITH THREE HOMICIDES IN B.C. THE PAIR HAVEN’T BEEN SPOTTED IN TWO WEEKS.>>>BACK IN THIS PROVINCE, ONE OF THE BEST SUMMER SPOTS ON THE WEST COAST IS GETTING A HIGH-TECH TIDY-UP. “HERE & NOW’S” LINDSAY BIRD HIT THE PASADENA BEACH AND HAS THIS REPORT.>>Reporter: THEY’RE OUT EARLY GIVING PASADENA BEACH A MORNING MAKEOVER. IT STRAINS STONES AND STICKS AND BROKEN GLASS AND SIFTS OUT A SAND. BUT FROM A KID PERSPECTIVE IT LOOKS KIND OF COOL.>>BEFORE YOU COULDN’T WALK ON THE BEACH WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT BROKEN GLASS AND SHARP ROCKS AND NOW THE KIDS CAN RUN AROUND WITHOUT SHOES OR SANDALS ON. AND EVERYONE IS ENJOYING IT.>>Reporter: THIS SAND ZAMBONI IS JUST ONE OF THE IMPROVEMENTS THAT IS NEW FOR BEACH SEASON 2019. UNTIL THIS YEAR, THE BEACH WAS A LITTLE RUNDOWN AND SO LAST WINTER THE TOWN DECIDED THAT IT WAS TIME TO INVEST IN ITS MOST POPULAR ATTRACTION.>>WE ARE A LITTLE BIT BIASED BUT WE FEEL THAT WE HAVE THE BEST BEACH IN WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND. SO IF WE HAVE THE BEST BEACH WE SHOULD, YOU KNOW, DO THE BEST JOB FOR THE PEOPLE TO COME HERE AND TO STAY HERE.>>Reporter: THE TOWN RIPPED UP OVERGROWN SHRUBS INVADING THE SAND, ADDED PICNIC TABLES AND HAD DEDICATED SPACE FOR SWIMMERS AND ADD AD LIFEGUARDS. AND NEXT YEAR IT WILL MAKE THE WATER ACCESSIBLE FOR ANYONE IN A WHEELCHAIR. IT’S NOT JUST THE TOWN INVESTING IN PASADENA BEACH. A GROUP OF SIX LOCALS TEAMED UP THIS WINTER AND BOUGHT THE ON-SITE RESTAURANT. THEY HAVE RENOVATED THE ENTIRE PLACE AND THEY’RE NOW RUN OFF THEIR FEET.>>WE FELT THAT IT WAS TIME FOR NEW ENERGY AND LIFE TO BE PUT BACK ON THE BEACH AND THE WHOLE GROUNDS AND NOT JUST THE BUSINESS ITSELF. WE THOUGHT THAT, YOU KNOW, NOW WAS THE TIME TO PUT OUR MONEY WHERE OUR MOUTH WAS. SO WE WANTED TO FIX UP THE GROUNDS AND MAKE IT A TOURIST ATTRACTION.>>Reporter: IF YOU’RE WATCHING THIS AND NOW THINKING, I WOULD LIKE TO BE AT THIS BEACH, WELL, I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS FOR YOU. SUMMER IS ONLY HALF OVER AND THIS WATER IS STILL SWIMMABLE WELL INTO SEPTEMBER. LINDSAY BIRD, CBC NEWS, PASADENA BEACH.>>Peter: A VOTE ON A CONTROVERSIAL PLAN TO EXPAND THE ST. JOHN’S BAPTIST CHURCH HAS BEEN DEFERRED. THE ST. JOHN’S CITY COUNCIL WAS EXPECTED TO VOTE ON THE PROPOSAL DURING ITS REGULAR MEETING THIS EVENING. IT WOULD SEE A MODERN ANNEX BUILT ON THE SOUTHSIDE OF THE HISTORIC DOWNTOWN CHURCH. BUT THAT VOTE HAS BEEN DELAYED AFTER ANGLICAN OFFICIALS ASKED FOR MORE TIME TO MEET WITH THE CITY STAFF AND TO REVIEW THE PROPOSED DESIGN. A NEW DATE FOR THE NEW VOTE HAS NOT BEEN SET.>>>WELL, CALL IT UNDYING LOVE, THE ROYAL ST. JOHN’S REGATTA IS COMING UP THIS WEEK AND IN LOGY BAY-MIDDLE COVE-OUTER COVE, THE PASSION FOR COMPETITION SHOWS UP EVEN IN THE TOWN CEMETERY. SEVERAL HEADSTONES TELL THE STORY OF LOCAL REGATTA HEROES. TODAY TOWN MAYOR BURT HICKEY AND OUR OWN ZACH GOUDIE WENT TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS. (♪♪♪)>>Reporter: BURT HICKEY, IS THIS THE OLDEST HEADSTONE IN THE WHOLE COMMUNITY?>>IT’S CERTAINLY ONE OF THE OLDEST. DENNIS, 1913, McCARTHY. SO THE 913 IS A TIME THAT HE RODE IN THE REGATTA IN 1901 IN THE FAMOUS 913 CREW.>>Reporter: THE FAMOUS 913 LOGY BAY-MIDDLE COVE-OUTER COVE?>>RIGHT YOU ARE. AND I THINK THAT IT SPEAKS VOLUMES TO HOW PROUD HIS FAMILY WAS OF HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS THAT THEY PUT HIS ROWING TIME ON HIS HEADSTONE. AND IT ALSO SPEAKS TO HOW PROUD THE COMMUNITY WAS. YOU KNOW, AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER AS A KID COMING OVER HERE THAT HEADSTONE ALWAYS STOOD OUT BECAUSE IT WAS DIFFERENT AS WELL AS MR. CROAK’S HEADSTONE.>>Reporter: SO WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE?>>THIS IS DENNIS “9.13” CROKE. THE SAME THING.>>Reporter: THE SAME THING.>>YEAH, AGAIN, IT SPEAKS VOLUMES TO PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, IN OUTER COVE THAT JUST SO, SO PROUD OF THAT CREW. AND, YOU KNOW, THEY’RE LEGENDS AND THEY’RE STILL LEGENDS IN OUR TOWN. (♪♪♪) THE PEOPLE DOWN HERE, YOU KNOW, REALISED THAT, LOOK, HERE WE ARE, A LITTLE TOWN, A LITTLE COMMUNITY LIKE US AND WE CAN BEAT THE BEST IN ST. JOHN’S AND BEAT THE BEST IN THE OTHER OUTLYING COMMUNITIES. AND THAT’S WHY EVERYONE REALLY, YOU KNOW, LOVED THE REGATTA AND LOVED TO GO TO THE REGATTA. SO THIS HERE IS THE HEADSTONE OF A GENTLEMAN WHO ROWED IN THE 1960s — 1950s AND 1960s, ACTUALLY. AND YOU CAN SEE HERE THIS IS THE SYMBOL OF THE ROYAL ST. JOHN’S REGATTA. AND JUST BELOW HIS FAMILY HAS “CHAMPIONSHIPS 1959, 1964” WHICH STANDS AS A RECORD I THINK UP TO THIS DATE FOR THE MOST CONSECUTIVE CHAMPIONSHIPS. SO THIS IS THE HEADSTONE OF A GUY WHO PASSED AWAY NOT TOO LONG AGO, A FEW YEARS AGO. HIS NAME IS RON BRENNAN BUT HE WAS A COXSWAIN FOR MOST OF THE TIME AT THE REGATTA. HE LOVED THE REGATTA AND HE COULDN’T BE HAPPIER, I’M SURE, THAT THIS IS HOW HE WANTED TO BE REMEMBERED. TO ANYONE THAT COMES TO THE CEMETERY AND THEY LOOK AT THESE HEADSTONES, I MEAN, THAT IN ITSELF TELLS A STORY. IT JUST AUTOMATICALLY WILL TELL YOU THAT, WOW, THIS SPORT MEANT A LOT TO THESE PEOPLE. (♪♪♪)>>YOU CAN TALK TO ALMOST ANYBODY FROM NAIN AND THEY WOULD TELL YOU THE SAME THING.>>Peter: YOU MAY THINK THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO SAY THE NAME OF THE NEW FERRY ON LABRADOR’S NORTH COAST, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT ABOUT IT. WE’LL GIVE YOU A LANGUAGE LESSON COMING UP ON “HERE & NOW.” (♪♪♪)>>Peter: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE & NOW.” AND I’VE GOT TO SAY THAT AT LEAST HERE ON THE ISLAND THERE’S SOME ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TEMPERATURES OVER THE WEEKEND. IT FINALLY FELT THAT WE WERE GETTING THE SUMMER THAT REALLY HAS BEEN POSTPONED.>>Ashley: IT WAS POSTPONED, CERTAINLY, THROUGH JULY. AND NEAR THE END OF JULY WE DID START TO SEE THOSE WARMER TEMPERATURES. YEAH, 28°, 29° IN SOME AREAS.>>Peter: BUT THEN IT COMES TO AN END AND TODAY IT’S NOT EVEN NEARLY AS WARM AS THAT AND SOME RAIN.>>Ashley: YEAH, UNFORTUNATELY, AFTER SUMMER — [laughter]>>Peter: HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT!>>Ashley: NO, THAT’S NOT TRUE. BUT, YEAH, NO, WE DID SEE SOME RAIN TODAY. ESPECIALLY FOR EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE ISLAND. WE’LL LOOK AT SOME OF THE TEMPERATURES THAT WE SAW THIS AFTERNOON. 19° IN ST. JOHN’S AND CONSIDERING YESTERDAY IT WAS 28°, CERTAINLY IT FEELS A LOT COOLER. AND THEN WE DO HAVE THOSE TEMPERATURES IN THE 20° RANGE, COOLER UP THROUGH A PLACE LIKE ST. ANTHONY AND HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY AT 12°. AND 13° FOR CHURCHILL FALLS WAS YOUR AFTERNOON HIGH. AND THOSE TEMPERATURES DROPPED A LITTLE BIT, STILL SITTING AT 17° FOR ST. JOHN’S AND THE SAME FOR TWILLINGATE AND CORNER BROOK AT 20°, AND THEN HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY IS SITTING AT 12° RIGHT NOW. AND I SHOWED YOU THE RADAR EARLIER AND WE HAVE CELLS ROLLING THROUGH AND PLENTY OF SHOWER ACTIVITY. WE DID SEE SOME OF THAT HEAVIER RAIN MOVE THROUGH EARLIER TODAY. THAT HAS NOW PUSHED OFFSHORE. BUT IF WE ZOOM IN A LITTLE BIT YOU CAN SEE THE CELLS AND THEY’RE MOVING QUICKLY AND THEY’RE SMALL. SO IF YOU DO HEAR A FEW RUMBLES OF THUNDER THAT HAPPENS WITHIN THE NEXT COUPLE HOURS MORE THAN LIKELY. AND IT’S GOING TO HEAD TOWARDS BONAVISTA NORTH AND THEN AS WELL AS THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE AVALON AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NIGHT TONIGHT. AND TOWARDS THE EARLY MORNING HOURS REALLY, A SLIGHT RISK THAT WE COULD HEAR A FEW RUMBLES OF THUNDER. AND STAYING UNSETTLED THROUGH THE NIGHT AND RAIN/DRIZZLE/FOG AND THE COASTAL AREAS AND MORE THAN LIKELY ON THE COAST OF LABRADOR. AND THEN THAT — AS THAT LOW CONTINUES TO SPIN AND ROTATE AND KEEP US IN THOSE ONSHORE WINDS. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT THE TEMPERATURES TONIGHT, 13°, 14°. AND NOT TOO BAD AS THE OVERNIGHT LOWS AND THOSE WINDS WEST/SOUTHWESTERLY FOR NOW WITH 20-30 km/h GUSTS. AND THEN ST. ANTHONY AS YOUR LOW TONIGHT 10°. AND NOT MOVING MUCH FROM WHAT WE SEE NOW. 10° FOR LAB CITY AND EAST/SOUTHEASTERLIES, LIGHT, AND 10° FOR HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY AND SITTING AROUND 8° FOR CARTWRIGHT. NOW LOOKING AHEAD TO TOMORROW, PLENTY MORE SUNSHINE THAN WHAT WE’RE GOING TO SEE TODAY, OR AT LEAST MORE PEEKS OF SUN THAN TODAY. AND STILL LOOKING UNSETTLED. SO SOME POP-UP AFTERNOON SHOWERS ARE VERY LIKELY FOR PARTS OF CENTRAL AND THEN TOWARDS THE AVALON AS WELL. AND THEN STAYING IN THAT ONSHORE FLOW, UP THROUGH COASTAL LABRADOR, WE’RE GOING TO STILL SEE THE COOLER TEMPERATURES AND THAT POTENTIAL FOR R.D.F. AS WELL AND MOST OF THE SHOWER ACTIVITY — AT LEAST THE HEAVIER SHOWER IT’S — WILL MOVE IN FOR LAB WEST. AND WE’LL CONTINUE TO TRACK THAT FURTHER EAST AS WE HEAD INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. SO HERE’S YOUR TEMPERATURES. PRETTY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE’RE SEEING TODAY. 19° IS YOUR AFTERNOON HIGH IN ST. JOHN’S. NORTHWESTERLIES, AND THERE’S THAT WIND SHIFT 20-30 km/h. AND CLARENVILLE, 21°, AND THE SAME FOR MARYSTOWN AND LIKELY GOING TO SEE SUNSHINE FOR YOU AND ALONG THE SOUTH COAST REALLY GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR 21° AND TWILLINGATE IS SITTING AT 15° AS YOUR AFTERNOON HIGH. AND THESE ARE THE TEMPERATURES FOR THE WEST COAST, 20°. IT LOOKS NICE FOR THE MOST PART AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND CORNER BROOK AND GROS MORNE AND THEN HUMBER VALLEY 21° WITH SUNSHINE TOMORROW. AND 15° FOR ST. ANTHONY, SO A BIT WARMER THAN TODAY AND, AGAIN, THOSE COOLER TEMPERATURES, ONSHORE FLOW FOR COASTAL LABRADOR. YOU WILL SEE THAT POTENTIAL FOR R.D.F. THROUGH THE DAY AND THEN LAB CITY YOUR SHOWERS MOVE IN AND AT LEAST THE HEAVIER SHOWERS LATER ON IN THE DAY. SO THAT’S A LOOK AT YOUR FORECAST AND A LOOK AHEAD IN A LITTLE BIT.>>Peter: WELL, THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF TALK ABOUT LABRADOR’S NEWEST FERRY, THE SHIP SERVES THE COMMUNITIES OF NUNATSIAVUT WHICH IS INUIT LAND SO IT HAS AN INUIT NAME. BUT IF YOU THINK THAT THIS IS PRONOUNCED KOMATIK, YOU’RE MISS TAKEN. “HERE & NOW’S” JACOB BARKER IS SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT.>>Reporter: I HAVE BEEN CALLING IT THE KOMATIK, SO TEACH ME.>>SAY KAMUTIK. KAMUTIK. AND YOU CAN TALK TO ALMOST ANYBODY FROM NAIN AND THEY’D TELL YOU HOW TO SAY KAMUTIK.>>Reporter: KAMUTIK.>>THAT’S EASIER ON THE EARS. FOR SURE.>>Reporter: COME ALONG AS WE TAKE A RIDE ON THE KAMUTIK W. ON ITS MAIDEN VOYAGE.>>THE ONLY ONES SAYING IT WITH ACCURACY ARE THE NORTH COAST OF LABRADOR. THE INUIT PEOPLE THEMSELVES. AND OTHERWISE IT’S PERPLEXING WHEN YOU PICK UP THE PHONE TO MAKE A RESERVATION OR TO TALK TO A STAFF MEMBER ONBOARD THE KAMUTIK FERRIES AND IT’S THE INUIT WORD AND YOU SHOULD DO YOUR BEST TO SAY IT IN AN INUIT WAY. AND THIS IS INUIT LAND AND THERE WAS A PRESS RELEASE ABOUT TRYING TO BRING THE NAME INTO HAVE A CLOSENESS TO THE INUIT IDENTITY. AND THEN SAYING IT CORRECTLY, IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH EFFORT AND IT MAKES PEOPLE FEEL MORE AT HOME IF YOU COULD SAY THAT. (♪♪♪)>>Reporter: SO THERE YOU GO. I’M STILL NEEDING A BIT OF PRACTICE. HAMUTIK. WITH THAT GUTTERRAL, IN THE BACK OF YOUR THROAT. NOT A SOUND THAT COMES NATURAL IN ENGLISH.>>Ashley: EVEN HAVING LIVED IN THE NORTH AND THE PRONUNCIATIONS, IT’S REGION ARIZONAAL AS WELL. SO THE YEA WAY THAT AREAS PRONOUNCE CERTAIN WORDS AND THE LETTERS ITSELF — SO, YEAH.>>Peter: WELL, WE HAVE HAD A BIT OF HOMEWORK THEN, DON’T WE?>>Ashley: ABSOLUTELY. (♪♪♪)>>Reporter: SO YOU CAN SEE THAT THE COACH IS GIVING TIPS TO SOME BEGINNERS HERE AT GREENBELT TONIGHT. AND NOW HE’S GETTING READY TO TAKE THE TEAM TO NATIONALS. I’LL HAVE THAT STORY COMING UP AFTER THE BREAK. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Peter: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE & NOW.” THE BIGGEST TENNIS TOURNAMENT IN CANADA IS UNDERWAY WITH THE TOP PLAYERS COMPETING IN TORONTO AND MONTRÉAL. WHEN THE PROS WRAP UP, THE COUNTRY’S RISING STARS WILL PLAY AS PART OF THE UNIVERSITY TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS. AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY HAS PLAYERS ON THE COURT. “HERE & NOW’S” JEREMY EATON ONLY WISHES THAT HE WAS THAT GOOD BUT HE JOINS US COURTSIDE TONIGHT. HOW BIG A DEAL IS THIS, JEREMY?>>PETER, FIRST OF ALL, LET ME ADDRESS THAT. I WAS A GOOD TENNIS PLAYER IN THE LATE 1980s THROUGH THE EARLY 1990s. BUT THAT BEING SAID THIS EVENT IS AS IMPORTANT AS YOUR FIRST SERVE PERCENTAGE IN ANY MATCH. HOW IS THAT FOR A TENNIS RECORD? THE MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY TEAM HAS WORKED TO GET TO THIS NATIONAL STAGE AND THEY’RE ALL VERY EXCITED TO GO. NOW EARLIER THIS YEAR I CAUGHT UP WITH THEM AT A PRACTICE HERE AT GREEN BELT. IF YOU NEVER KNEW THAT MUN HAD A TENNIS TEAM YOU’RE NOT ALONE. FLYING UNDER THE RADAR, THE TEAM TRAINS HERE AT GREEN BELT DURING THE WINTER MONTHS.>>MOST OF OUR TEAM IS ACTUALLY FROM ST. JOHN’S AND THEY GRADUATED FROM OUR JUNIOR PROGRAMME AND GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOLS AROUND THE CITY. AND ACTUALLY HAVE KNEW ABOUT THE TEAM THROUGH, YOU KNOW, ME CONNECTING WITH THEM WHEN THEY WERE STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL, WHEN THEY WERE GROWING UP.>>KEEP THIS BELOW WAIST HEIGHT, ALL RIGHT?>>Reporter: THE COACH SAYS THAT THE UNIVERSITY TENNIS IS FAIRLY NEW. IT’S THE SIXTH YEAR THAT MUN HAS PUT A TEAM TOGETHER, PLAYING AGAINST OTHER ATLANTIC CANADIAN UNIVERSITIES.>>A BUNCH OF SMALL UNIVERSITIES THAT KIND OF GOT TOGETHER. I THINK THAT THERE WERE FOUR OF US INITIALLY AND WE’RE UP TO EIGHT. SO WE’RE PLAYING NOW WITH ACADIA AND ST. MARY’S AND U.N.B., OURSELVES, DALHOUSIE, BUT IT’S REALLY, REALLY KIND OF GROWN.>>Reporter: WHILE THE TEAM WEARS MEMORIAL ON THEIR SHIRTS THE FUNDING FOR THEM TO TRAVEL COMES FROM TENNIS CANADA AND FUNDRAISING. THEIR SEASON CONSISTS OF THREE TOURNAMENTS.>>IT’S FABULOUS. I’M SO, SO HAPPY WITH HOW THE TEAM DID. WE PULLED OUT A REALLY, REALLY CLOSE FINAL AGAINST DALHOUSIE.>>Reporter: LED BY THE POWERFUL GROUND STROKES OF THESE TWO, BOTH NAMED M.V.P.s DURING THAT EVENT, THIS CREW WILL MAKE ITS WAY TO THE MAINLAND THIS WEEK.>>IT’S REALLY FUN. THIS IS OUR FIRST YEAR ACTUALLY WINNING THE ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY TOURNAMENT. SO THIS IS PROBABLY MY FAVOURITE YEAR. BUT EACH YEAR HAS BEEN FUN. IT’S A GOOD GROUP OF TENNIS PLAYERS THAT ARE AROUND EVERY YEAR. AND IT’S ALWAYS ENJOYABLE BUT THIS YEAR IS MORE ENJOYABLE.>>I ENJOYED PLAYING WITH THE MUN TEAM AND I’M EXCITED TO GO TO NATIONALS THIS YEAR.>>IT’S SUCH A BIG DEAL AND IT’S SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT EVER SINCE I PLAYED ON THE TEAM SIX YEARS AGO. IT’S KIND OF BEEN A GOAL OF OURS, NOT TO JUST GET TO NATIONALS BUT WE WANT TO BE COMPETITIVE WHEN WE’RE THERE.>>Reporter: THE TEAM IS GETTING SET TO HEAD OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS WEEK. AND THE PLAY STARTS ON FRIDAY. THE MEN HEAD TO MONTRÉAL AND THE WOMEN TO TORONTO WHERE THE MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY TEAM WILL SHARE THE SAME COURTS AS SOME OF THE GREATEST TENNIS PLAYERS IN THE WORLD. AND THEY’RE HOPING THAT WHEN THEY ARE THERE THAT THEY CAN LEAVE A MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY MARK ON THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY EVENT. REPORTING LIVE FOR “HERE & NOW” I’M JEREMY EATON AT THE GREEN BELT BUBBLE IN ST. JOHN’S. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>THEY SAY THAT EVENTUALLY EVERYBODY COMES TO QUIDI VIDI LAKE, SOME FOR SPORT, SOME FOREVER. AND AS ALWAYS IN ST. JOHN’S, WHERE YOU CAME FROM MATTERED, INCLUDING AT THE REGATTA ITSELF. (♪♪♪)>>INITIALLY ALL OF THE ROWERS WOULD HAVE BEEN WORKING, AND THESE WERE PEOPLE THAT WERE WORKING DOWN IN ST. JOHN’S HARBOUR. THESE WERE FIRERMEN. THESE WERE PEOPLE WORKING IN THE TRADES. AND THEY WANTED A DAY OF RELAXATION, A DAY OF LEISURE. AND SO THIS IS WHERE THEY CAME. BUT INITIALLY IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE WORKERS. IT WAS THE WORKING MEN’S HOLIDAY. SO TRADITIONALLY WE ALWAYS HAD THE RACE ON A WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY WAS THE DAY BECAUSE THE MERCHANT CLASSES DIDN’T MIND RELEASING THEIR STAFF ON A WEDNESDAY BECAUSE WEDNESDAY WAS ALWAYS THE DAY THAT YOU HAD A HALF DAY OFF ANYHOW. SO WHAT THEY WERE DOING IS ONLY GIVING THEM THE REST OF THE DAY.>>Reporter: BUT BEFORE BOATS EVER SLICED THESE WATERS, HORSES WERE RACING ON THIS LAKE. THERE WERE HORSES ON THE FROZEN LAKE IN THE LATE 1700s. IT WAS CALLED TILTING AND LATER ICE RACING AND IT CONTINUED WELL INTO THE 1940s. NOW HORSES WEREN’T THE ONLY ANIMAL USED FOR SPORT AT THE LAKE. HERE’S JOHNNY BURKE, ON THE REGATTA’S GREASY PIG CONTEST IN 1912.>>BUT TO ADD TO THE DIFFICULTY OF RETAINING HIM HE WAS CAREFULLY GREASED ALL OVER THE BODY AND LEGS. AT A GIVEN SIGNAL HE WAS RELEASED AND HE WAS THE PRIZE OF ANY WHO COULD CAPTURE HIM. SQUEALING AS ONLY A PIG CAN, HE RUSHED THROUGH THE CROWDS WHO TRIED TO CAPTURE HIM. BEING NO RESPECTIVE OF THE PERSON HE WOULD BOWL OVER MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN.>>Reporter: MEN WOULD ALSO TEST THEIR BALANCE IN ANOTHER TYPE OF CONTEST, SCURTLING ALONG A GREASY POLE. IF THEY REACHED THE END THERE WAS A PRIZE WAITING FOR THEM — A BAG OF FLOUR. BUT A BIG SPORTING ATTRACTION ON THE LAKE WAS THE OPEN FIELD ON THE WEST SIDE. IT WAS AND STILL IS USED FOR MATCHES OF ALL KINDS. (♪♪♪) THE KING GEORGE V IS ONE OF THE OLDEST STANDING SOCCER STADIUMS IN NORTH AMERICA.>>HERE COME THE MOTORCYCLES…>>Reporter: THE FIELD WELCOMED CHARLES AND DIANA IN 1983.>>THERE THEY ARE. [Cheers and Applause] LISTEN TO THE CROWD.>>Reporter: ITS MOST FAMOUS MATCH WAS HELD TWO YEARS LATER WHEN MORE THAN 13,000 FANS WATCHED AS CANADA BEAT HONDURAS TO QUALIFY FOR ITS FIRST AND SO FAR ONLY WORLD CUP CHAMPIONSHIP. [Cheers and Applause]>>Reporter: NEXT TO THE FIELD WAS MEMORIAL STADIUM BUILT AT THE END OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR.>>THAT WAS TO REMEMBER THOSE THAT DIED IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR.>>Reporter: MEMORIAL STADIUM WAS HOME TO SENIOR HOCKEY FOR ST. JOHN’S CAPS, AND LATER THE ST. JOHN’S MAPLE LEAFS. AND ANYONE OVER A CERTAIN AGE IN ST. JOHN’S HAS A STORY TO TELL ABOUT A CONCERT. TINA TURNER AND BOB DYLAN AND DAVID BOWIE OR THE TRAGICALLY HIP. EVEN THE POPE MADE AN APPEARANCE. THE DECISION TO TURN THE STADIUM INTO A GROCERY STORE DIVIDED RESIDENTS IN ST. JOHN’S. IT ALSO STANDS AS THE DIVIDER BETWEEN TWO CEMETERIES — ONE CATHOLIC AND ONE ANGLICAN AND BOTH BEGAN IN THE SAME PLACE. (♪♪♪)>>I FIRST SAW THOSE TWO GRAVES SOON AFTER WE MOVED HERE IN 1970. BECAUSE WE USED TO WALK THE GRAVEYARD AND THEN MY OWN PEOPLE ARE NOW BURIED HERE. I HAVE A PLOT JUST ABOUT 100 FEET BEHIND ME HERE. SO IT’S GOOD TO BE ASSURED FOR ME WHEN MY TIME COMES.>>Reporter: HE FOUND THOSE STONES IN MOUNT CARMEL CEMETERY AND THEY’RE OLDER THAN THE GRAVEYARD ITSELF.>>WHAT THE STONE SAYS “TO THE MEMORY OF MARY HAILEY WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE ON THE 22nd OF NOVEMBER, 1827. MAY SHE REST IN PEACE.” WELL, THERE WAS NOT A CEMETERY HERE FOR 18 YEARS LATER.>>Reporter: IT’S NOW THE PARKING LOT OF THE KIRK, THE ST. ANDREWS PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. AFTER A FIRE RAVAGED THE CITY, A TYPHOID EPIDEMIC BROKE OUT.>>THERE WAS A SENSE THAT THE BODIES IN THE GROUND, RAIN GOING THROUGH THEM COULD LEECH OUT TYPHOID INTO THE GENERAL AIR OF THE TOWN.>>Reporter: AND THE CEMETERIES WERE SHUTDOWN AND SOME GRAVES IN THE LONG HILL CEMETERY WERE MOVED OUT TO QUIDI VIDI LAKE, HEADSTONES AND ALL. SOME WERE PLACED IN THE ANGLICAN CEMETERY, AND OTHERS IN THE MOUNT CARMEL GRAVEYARD ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE. AS FOR THE IRISH PART OF THE OLD CEMETERY, THAT REMAINS AT THE KIRK.>>IT IS NOW BURIED IN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TONNES OF PRESBYTERIAN PARKING LOT KEEPING THE CATHOLIC SOULS WELL UNDERGROUND. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>MONEY WAS AN ISSUE TO US WHEN IT CAME TO FINDING A HOTEL BECAUSE WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE $3,000 OR $4,000 AFTER FUNDS,00R THIS TRIP.>>Peter: WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE DIAMOND DYNASTY SETTLED INTO THEIR AIRBNB. (♪♪♪)>>Peter: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE & NOW.” A SOFTBALL TEAM FROM THIS PROVINCE THOUGHT THEY HAD THE PERFECT SET-UP FOR A TOURNAMENT IN MONCTON. THEY RENTED A FOUR BEDROOM HOUSE ON AIRBNB BUT IT WASN’T SO SIMPLE. THEY ENDED UP WITH A HOUSE UNDER RENOVATION AND NO ELECTRICITY. ALISON LATE IS ON THAT TEAM AND WE HAVE REACHED HER IN MONCTON WHERE THE TEAM IS ENJOYING THEIR LAST DAY IN THE PROVINCE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.>>HI.>>Peter: WHEN DID YOU FIRST REALIZE THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG HERE?>>ON OUR SECOND DAY HERE WE ARRIVED BACK TO THE HOUSE AFTER A COUPLE GAMES AT THE FIELDS. AND WE WENT TO TURN ON THE LIGHTS AND GET READY TO COOK A MEAL AND THERE WAS NO POWER.>>Peter: THAT MUST HAVE BEEN A BIT OF A SURPRISE?>>IT WAS. THERE WERE 14 ADULTS AND A 2-MONTH-OLD BABY BOY AND WE WERE KIND OF STUMPED ON WHAT WAS GOING ON. SO WE CHECKED WITH THE NEIGHBOURS AND THEY ALL HAD POWER. AND WE HAD SOMEONE HELP US AND THERE WAS CLEARLY NO POWER TO THE HOUSE AT ALL.>>Peter: OKAY. SO THE POWER HAD BEEN CUT OFF TO THE HOUSE AND YOU HAD A FRIDGE FULL OF GROCERIES THAT YOU WERE PLANNING ON USING FOR THE TIME THAW WERE THERE?>>YES.>>Peter: SO WHAT DID YOU DO NEXT?>>WE CONTACTED THE NEIGHBOUR AND THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL AND THEY RAN A POWER CORD FROM THEIR HOUSE IN THROUGH THE DINING ROOM WINDOW. SO WE COULD AT LEAST PLUG IN THE FRIDGE. WE TRIED CONTACT AIRBNB AND THE HOST HIMSELF AND THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO CONTACT FROM THE HOST AT ALL. AND AIRBNB DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO HELP US TO FIND ANOTHER LISTING. THERE WAS NOTHING ON AIRBNB’S SITE FOR OUR GROUP. AND A HOTEL FOR THE REMAINING FOUR NIGHTS FOR THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE IN OUR GROUP WOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT — ANYWHERE FROM $3,000 TO $4,000. WE MADE SEVERAL PHONE CALLS TO TRY TO BOOK SOMETHING BUT THERE WAS NOTHING AVAILABLE AT THAT TIME IN OUR AREA.>>Peter: SO WHAT DID YOU END UP DOING THEN?>>WELL, WE MADE A POST ON FACEBOOK AND THEN A FAMILY FRIEND AN HOUR AWAY OUT IN THE COUNTRY CONTACTED US AND THERE WAS A LOT OF DELAYS WITH AIRBNB SO THEY WOULD PROMISE US THROUGH MESSAGING, OF COURSE, YOU’D HAVE A RESPONSE IN AN HOUR. SO WE WERE ABOUT SIX, SEVEN HOURS TRYING TO COME UP WITH A RESOLUTION. AND THEN IMMEDIATELY WE SAID, WELL, IF WE HAVE A CHANCE TO GO TO THIS HOUSE OUT IN THE COUNTRY IT’S GETTING DARK SO WE SHOULD PROBABLY PACK UP AND GO.>>Peter: SO THEN DID YOU END UP GOING BACK TO THIS HOUSE? HOW WAS THIS RESOLVED IN THE END?>>THE NEXT DAY WE WENT BACK TO THE HOUSE. THE POWER WAS ON. AIRBNB KNEW THAT WE WERE GOING BACK IN THE HOUSE AND WE ALSO TOLD THE HOST’S BROTHER. HE WAS ALSO WAS IN CONTACT, WHERE HIS BROTHER WAS NOT IN CONTACT AT ALL.>>Peter: SO THEN YOU WERE BACK IN THE HOUSE AND YOU GOT A KNOCK ON THE DOOR?>>THERE WERE THREE MEN AT THE DOOR AND CLAIMING THEY HAD THE HOUSE RENTED FOR THE NIGHT. AND WE WERE KIND OF AT A STANDSTILL BECAUSE WE WERE THERE AND THEY WANTED TO BE THERE. AND THEY ENDED UP LEAVING AFTER SOME CONVERSATION WITH US AND EVERYTHING WAS OKAY. AND THEN THEY FOUND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO STAY FOR THE NIGHT.>>Peter: WOW. SO SO IN THE END AIRBNB TOLD CBC THAT THEY FELT THAT THEIR INTERACTION WITH YOU DIDN’T LIVE UP TO THE STANDARD THAT THEY EXPECT AND THEY’D OFFER YOU A FULL REFUND. WHAT HAPPENED IN THE END?>>AT FIRST THEY OFFERED US $700 REFUND AND A REFUND FOR HALF OF THE DAY THAT THE POWER WAS CUT. SO WE WEREN’T HAPPY WITH THAT. MONEY WAS AN ISSUE WITH US WHEN IT CAME TO FINDING A HOTEL BECAUSE WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE $3,000 OR $4,000 AFTER FUNDRAISING FOR THIS TRIP. AND THE FACT THAT WE WERE ALREADY HERE. SO WE ENDED UP STAYING IN THE HOUSE AND WE DID NOT GET ANY REFUND YET. AIRBNB IS SAYING THEY WOULD REFUND THE WHOLE AMOUNT BUT IT TAKES A FEW DAYS I WOULD IMAGINE.>>Peter: WELL, IT SOUNDS LIKE QUITE THE EXPERIENCE. AND BEFORE YOU GO THOUGH, HOW DID YOU DO IN THE TOURNAMENT?>>WE DIDN’T WIN ANY GAMES AT ALL. BUT WE HAD LOTS OF FUN.>>Peter: WELL, I WILL LET YOU TO GET BACK AND ENJOY THE THEME PARK AND SAFE TRAVELS BACK TO THE PROVINCE AND THANK YOU FOR TELLING ME ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE.>>THANK YOU, PETER.>>Peter: WELL, STAYING WITH SPORTS, THE CANADIAN MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM OPENED UP TRAINING CAMP THIS MORNING AND EMBARKING ON A JOURNEY THAT IS AIMING AT A BERTH IN THE OLYMPICS. AT THE HELM IS NICK NURSE, THE MAN WHO LAST JUNE COACHED CANADA’S ONLY NBA TEAM TO ITS FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP. THE CBC’S DEVIN HEROUX HAS A LOOK AT NURSE AND HIS NEWEST COOKING ASSIGNMENT.>>WHY TAKE THIS ON, NICK?>>WELL, I LOVE INTERNATIONAL BASKETBALL. I THINK THAT THERE’S A GREAT INFLUX OF TALENT HERE.>>Reporter: THE CHALLENGE IS GREAT AND NICK NURSE KNOWS IT.>>HERE COMES NASH. PUTS IT UP. GOT IT.>>Reporter: AND NOT SINCE STEVE NASH LED CANADA TO THE OLYMPICS NEARLY TWO DECADES AGO HAS THIS COUNTRY QUALIFIED FOR THE GAMES AND NOW IT’S UP TO THE COACH WHO SEEMS TO HAVE THE GOLDEN TOUCH. IN JUST HIS FIRST SEASON AS RAPTORS’ HEAD COACH, NURSE LED THE TEAM TO AN HISTORIC FIRST TITLE. HIS MISSION NOW? GETTING CANADA TO THE OLYMPICS.>>I’M EXHILARATED BY THIS OPPORTUNITY AND WILL START MOLDING AND SHAPING IT AS WE GO HERE.>>PROUD OF YOU, SON.>>Reporter: NEVER BEFORE HAS CANADA ENJOYED THIS MUCH BASKETBALL SUCCESS. A RECORD NUMBER OF ACTIVE NBA PLAYERS INVITED TO TRAINING CAMP, BUT WHO WILL SHOW UP TO PLAY?>>COREY JOSEPH IS IN AND READY TO GO. AND R.J. BARRETT WILL BE IN CAMP BUT NOT PARTICIPATING. TRISTAN THOMPSON AS OF NOW HAS PULLED OUT OF THIS SESSION.>>Reporter: BUT NURSE IS NOT OVERLY CONCERNED ABOUT WHO WILL BE ON THE COURT. IN FACT, MUCH OF HIS COACHING SUCCESS IS CENTRED AROUND GETTING THE MOST OUT OF EVERY PLAYER, NO MATTER THEIR STAR POWER.>>WE TRY TO START CONVINCING EVERYBODY AROUND THE PROGRAMME TO BECOME — MAYBE EVEN MORE THAN THEY THINK THAT THEY CAN BECOME.>>Reporter: NURSE WAS JUST 23 WHEN HE GOT HIS FIRST HEAD COACHING JOB. SINCE THEN HE’S WON CHAMPIONSHIPS NEARLY EVERY STOP ALONG HIS BASKETBALL JOURNEY. FROM CAROL, IOWA, TO CANADA, TRYING TO PUT THE MEN’S NATIONAL TEAM BACK ON THE BASKETBALL MAP.>>I’M EXTREMELY HONOURED AND HUMBLED TO HAVE BOTH THESE JOBS. AND I’M GOING — JUST LIKE I DID WITH THE RAPTORS, I’LL GIVE THIS ONE EVERYTHING THAT I’VE GOT.>>Reporter: IN LESS THAN A MONTH CANADA LEAVES FOR CHINA TO COMPETE IN THE WORLD CUP. GREAT EXPECTATIONS FROM FANS IN A COUNTRY NOW CRAZY ABOUT BASKETBALL. DEVIN HEROUX, CBC NEWS, TORONTO. (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: WELL, THAT’S THE VIEW FROM OUR ROOMS CAMERA IN ST. JOHN’S RIGHT NOW. THE WEATHER IS LOOKING LIKE WE’LL SEE DRIZZLE AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NIGHT TONIGHT. NOW ALL EYES ARE ON WEDNESDAY’S FORECAST. I’LL HAVE ALL OF THOSE DETAILS COMING UP.>>Peter: WELCOME BACK. ASHLEY, YOU HAVE BEEN PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO THAT WEDNESDAY FORECAST WITH THE REGATTA ROULETTE AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES WITH THAT. BUT BEFORE WE GET TO WEDNESDAY, OF COURSE, WE HAVE TO GET THROUGH TOMORROW. WILL WE SEE MORE DRIZZLY KIND OF TEMPS?>>Ashley: YES, KIND OF. IT DOES LOOK LIKE THE SUN WILL PEEK OUT THOUGH. SO I MENTIONED THE FORECAST A LITTLE BIT EARLIER. WE’LL LOOK ONE MORE TIME AT THAT FOR TOMORROW. YOU CAN SEE THE TEMPERATURES SIMILAR TO WHAT WE SEE TODAY. AGAIN, THAT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND EVEN IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS WE COULD HEAR THUNDER FROM BONAVISTA NORTH TOWARDS THE AVALON. AND OTHERWISE THERE ARE YOUR TEMPERATURES. 20° MAINLY FOR THE WEST COAST. AND THEN UP THROUGH LABRADOR, A LITTLE BIT COOLER, 19° FOR LAB CITY. AND 16° FOR CHURCHILL FALLS. AND THEN WE’VE GOT THE COOLER TEMPERATURES ALONG THE COAST. AND WE CAN THANK THAT ONSHORE FLOW FOR THAT. NOW LOOKING AT THE FUTURE TRACKER, WE’RE GOING TO HEAD INTO WEDNESDAY, WE DO HAVE SOME SHOWERS THAT WILL MOVE THROUGH, HEADING TOWARDS CENTRAL PORTIONS OF LABRADOR. BUT FOR THE ISLAND, THINGS LOOK CALM AND WE’RE GOING TO SEE SOME CLOUD COVER MOVE IN, SO GENERALLY LOOKING AT A CLOUDY AFTERNOON FOR MOST OF THE ISLAND. EVENTUALLY WE’LL START TO SEE SOME CLEARING BUT THE AVALON DOES LOOK LIKE IT WILL STAY CLOUDY THROUGH THE DAY. BUT BEAUTIFUL LIGHT WINDS FOR THE MOST PART. AND THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO STAY QUITE — WELL, PRETTY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE SEE RIGHT NOW, FROM 18°, MAYBE 19°, IS THE AFTERNOON HIGH. BUT HEADING INTO THURSDAY WE’LL START TO SEE MORE RAIN PUSH THROUGH. BUT, AGAIN, THESE WARMER TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO MOVE IN. SO GOT A BIT OF A DIP IN THE JET STREAM. THAT’S WHY WE’RE SEEING THESE COOLER TEMPERATURES. AND THEN WE’RE GOING TO GET A RIDGE. SO BY FRIDAY WE’LL START TO SEE SOME OF THAT WARMER TEMPERATURES LIKELY MOVE IN. AND THEN QUICKLY IN BEHIND IT, IT WILL COOL BACK OFF AGAIN AS ANOTHER TROUGH OR COOLER TEMPERATURES MOVE IN. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT THE WEDNESDAY FORECAST. 18° RIGHT NOW IS WHAT I HAVE FOR ST. JOHN’S. AND, AGAIN, GOING TO SEE CLOUDY PERIODS THROUGH THE DAY. AND OTHERWISE A LOVELY AFTERNOON FOR CORNER BROOK. 27°. THERE’S THAT WARMER AIR THAT IS SLOWLY EDGING IN, 25° FOR MARYSTOWN AND 19° FOR PORT AUX BASQUE. AND THE SAME THROUGH HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY BUT WE’RE LOOKING AT A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THAT WILL CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT THE FIVE-DAY FORECAST. 19° TOMORROW. AND THEN WE’LL EDGE TOWARDS THE 20° MARK AGAIN ON THURSDAY WITH RIGHT NOW WHAT LOOKS LIKE PLENTY OF SUNSHINE. AND THEN FOR THE WEEKEND, RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS A BIT WET BUT THERE’S THE WARMER TEMPERATURES, 25° BY THE TIME THAT SATURDAY ROLLS AROUND. AND WITH THAT WE’LL LIKELY SEE HUMIDITY AS WELL. NOW FOR CENTRAL NEWFOUNDLAND, 21° TOMORROW AND 25° AND 26° FOR THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. AND THEN AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE WEEKEND, AGAIN, LOOKING AT THAT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THE TEMPERATURES IN THE 20-DEGREE RANGE. FOR WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND, THE TEMPERATURES A LITTLE BIT COOLER BY THE TIME WE GET TO THE WEEKEND. YOUR OVERNIGHT LOWS STILL IN THE TEENS RIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY. AND THEN UP THROUGH LABRADOR, EASTERN LABRADOR, 16° TOMORROW. AND EVENTUALLY WE’LL HIT THE 20° RANGE AGAIN BY THE TIME THAT THURSDAY ROLLS AROUND. PLENTY OF SUNSHINE IT LOOKS LIKE FOR FRIDAY. AND THEN SATURDAY LOOKING AT 19° WITH THAT POTENTIAL FOR SOME SHOWERS. GENERALLY UNSETTLED FOR WESTERN LABRADOR. NOW TOMORROW DRIZZLE AND FOG — OR DRIZZLE, RATHER, AND THEN TOWARDS THE EVENING HOURS IS WHEN WE’LL SEE THAT RAIN MOVE IN. BUT IT LOOKS LIKE WEDNESDAY SHOULD CLEAR OUT, 20°. AND THE TEMPERATURES ARE NOT MOVING MUCH OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS INTO FRIDAY 19° AND SHOWERS. AND THEN THE SAME THING FOR SATURDAY. BUT A LITTLE BIT COOLER. RIGHT NOW WE’RE SEEING IT LOOKS LIKE THE TEMPERATURES IN AND AROUND THE 15° MARK. SO THAT’S A LOOK AT YOUR FORECAST WEDNESDAY, AGAIN, IS NOT LOOKING TOO BAD. SO IT LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE A GO. BUT I’LL HAVE YOUR WEATHER PHOTO WHEN I COME BACK.>>Peter: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, ASHLEY. WELL, THE HUGELY COMPLEX CLEAN-UP AND RESTORATION OF NOTRE-DAME JUST GOT MORE COMPLICATED. LAST APRIL, FIRE GUTTED THE PARISIAN LANDMARK. AND NOW THERE’S GROWING CONCERNS ABOUT THE LEAD LEVELS AT THE SITE AND THE SURROUNDING AREA. AS SUSAN ORMISTON REPORTS, WORK HAS STOPPED UNTIL IT’S ALL SORTED OUT.>>Reporter: THREE MONTHS AFTER THE TRAGIC FIRE WHICH DESTROYED SO MUCH OF THE CENTRE OF NOTRE-DAME CATHEDRAL AND THE RESTORATION WORK INSIDE HAS STOPPED. RIGHT AFTER THE FIRE THERE WERE EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH LEVELS OF LEAD IN THE CHURCH BECAUSE OF THE SPIRE, PARTICULARLY THAT FELL RIGHT THROUGH THE CENTRE OF THE CHURCH. AND THE HUNDREDS OF TONNES OF LEAD IN THE CATHEDRAL. SO NOW A GROUP OF FRENCH UNIONS GOT TOGETHER TODAY TO SOUND AN ALARM, NOT ABOUT PROTECTING THE WORKERS ONLY, BUT ALSO THE PROTECTION OF THE RESIDENTS AND THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TOURISTS WHO COME HERE. THEY WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE LEVELS OF LEAD IN THE AIR AND IN THE GROUND AROUND HERE. AND THEY’RE ASKING THE CITY TO BE MORE TRANSPARENT. THE CITY OF PARIS SO FAR SAYS THAT THIS IS NOT A CRISIS, BUT TODAY IT DID ANNOUNCE THAT IT’S STARTING A NEW PROGRAMME OF DECONTAMINATION. IN A COUPLE DAYS A THIN LAYER OF JELL WILL BE LAID OUT ALL AROUND THIS AREA AS THEY CLOSE IT OFF AND EVEN SOME OF STREETS NEARBY. AND THE GELL IS MEANT TO ATTRACT ANY LEAD PARTICLES AND TO ACTUALLY PULL THEM UP OUT OF THE GROUND. THAT’S THE FIRST STEP. BUT THEY ADMIT THAT THEY DON’T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT WHAT IS LEFT HERE AFTER THAT HUGE FIRE IN APRIL. SUSAN ORMISTON, CBC NEWS, PARIS. (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: I WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOU’RE TO? THIS WEEKEND YOU MORE THAN LIKELY WERE AT A BEACH IF YOU COULD. I’LL LET YOU KNOW WHERE THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN AND WHO TOOK IT WHEN WE COME BACK AFTER THE BREAK.>>Peter: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE & NOW.” A BRAZEN PRISON BREAK IN BRAZIL JUST GOT BUSTED A FEW STEPS FROM FREEDOM. BUT LOOK AT WHAT ALMOST MADE IT SUCCESSFUL. SO THIS IS ACTUALLY A DRUG DEALER AND THIS WAS — HE STAGED THIS ESCAPE BY PRETENDING TO BE HIS 19-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER. THEY DIDN’T JUST SWAP OUTFITS, THE MAN ALSO DONNED A WIG AND A LAYTEX MASK TO COMPLETE THE LOOK. POLICE SAY THAT HIS NERVOUSNESS GAVE HIM AWAY. AND THE PLAN WAS TO LEAVE HIS VISITING DAUGHTER BEHIND IN THE CELL. POLICE HAVE SINCE ARRESTED HER, ALONG WITH SEVEN OTHER PEOPLE SUSPECTED OF HELPING HIM. THE ESCAPE ARTIST HAS ALSO BEEN MOVED TO A DIFFERENT JAIL.>>Ashley: THAT’S AN INTERESTING STORY.>>Peter: LET’S LOOK AT THE WEATHER PICTURE OF THE DAY BECAUSE THAT’S A BEAUTY.>>Ashley: YEP, THERE IT IS. AND THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN IN MUSGRAVE HARBOUR. YES, DAVID BROPHY SENT US THAT PHOTO AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SENDING THAT IN AND, YEAH, GOLDEN HOUR ON THE BEACH. IF YOU HAVE WEATHER PHOTOS SEND THEM TO [email protected]>>Peter: GLAD TO HEAR THAT THERE’S MORE BEACH WEATHER ON THE WAY.>>Ashley: A LOT LEFT.>>Peter: WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WATCHING, EVERYONE. AND I’LL BE BACK WITH YOU FOR ONE MORE NIGHT. HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.>>Ashley: GOODNIGHT. (♪♪♪)
