Normal
(0)
Difficulty: 0

(*)

>> Adrienne: TONIGHT, A PLAN

TO GET CANADIANS OUT OF CHINA.

>> Andrew: BUT WHAT WILL

HAPPEN ONCE THEY GET HOME?

>> WE HAVE ALL OF THE MEASURES

IN PLACE TO PROTECT CANADIANS.

>> Andrew: AS THE DEATH TOLL

RISES, NEW CONCERN ABOUT HOW THE

VIRUS JUMPS FROM

PERSON-TO-PERSON.

>> Adrienne: THE PUSH FOR

NETFLIX TO BE A BIT MORE

CANADIAN, AND CAN YOU EXPECT TO

PAY A STREAMING TAX?

>> Andrew: A PLANE FULL OF

POTENTIAL.

>> SHE WAS SUCH AN ENORMOUS

FORCE.

>> Andrew: THE TALENT THAT

CANADA LOST WHEN FLIGHT 752 WAS

SHOT DOWN.

(*)

>> Adrienne: AND THE HIGH-TECH

SHOES SO FAST THEY COULD BE

BANNED.

>>> THIS IS "THE NATIONAL."

(*)

>> Andrew: AS CHINA STRUGGLES

TO CONTAIN THE DANGEROUS

CORONAVIRUS, OTHER COUNTRIES ARE

STRUGGLING TO GET THEIR PEOPLE

OUT.

>> Adrienne: AT LEAST 126

CANADIANS ARE ASKING THE

GOVERNMENT FOR HELP.

NOW OTTAWA SAYS THOSE INSIDE OF

THE INFECTED ZONE WILL BE

BROUGHT HOME, BUT THERE IS A LOT

STILL TO BE WORKED OUT.

FRUSTRATED CANADIANS MAY POINT

TO HOW THE U.S. AND JAPAN HAVE

ALREADY REPATRIATED SOME OF

THEIR CITIZENS.

BUT OTTAWA SAYS THAT THIS IS

COMPLICATED.

AND EVEN WHEN THOSE CANADIANS DO

FINALLY STEP ON TO HOME SOIL,

THEIR DIFFICULTIES WILL NOT BE

OVER.

DAVID COCHRANE EXPLAINS.

>> WE HAVE SECURED A PLANE TO

REPATRIATE CANADIANS.

>> Reporter: GETTING THE PLANE

WAS THE EASY PART.

GETTING IT INTO CHINA AND

GETTING PEOPLE HOME WILL BE

HARDER.

>> WE NEED TO WORK WITH THE

CHINESE AUTHORITIES WITH RESPECT

TO THE AUTHORIZATIONS THAT YOU

NEED TO BRING THE PLANE,

OBVIOUSLY, TO CHINA.

BUT ALSO TO WORK ON THE

LOGISTICS.

>> Reporter: THOSE LOGISTICS ARE

CHALLENGING.

MOST CANADIANS ARE UNDER

QUARANTINE IN WUHAN.

BUT OTHERS ARE SPREAD ACROSS

HUBEI PROVINCE WHERE TRAVEL IS

FORBIDDEN OR HEAVILY RESTRICTED

WITH HIGHWAYS AND AIRPORTS

CLOSED.

>> HONESTLY, IT'S ABOUT TIME.

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE DEFINITELY

BEHIND, YOU KNOW, OTHER

COUNTRIES.

SO THEY'VE GOT SOME CATCHING UP

TO DO.

I'M GLAD THEY FINALLY MADE THAT

DECISION.

>>> Reporter: LOREEN WILLIAMS

IS 35 WEEKS PREGNANT AND

STRANDED IN WUHAN WITH HER

HUSBAND, TOM, AND 2-YEAR-OLD

SON, JAMES.

TOM IS A BRITISH CITIZEN AND

THEY HAVE BEEN ASKING BOTH

COUNTRIES FOR HELP.

>> AT THIS STAGE IT'S WHICHEVER

ONE TAKES OFF FIRST AND WE'LL

TAKE IT.

WE'LL GO ON.

>> Reporter: THERE ARE ENDLESS

COMPLICATIONS, COMPOUNDED BY THE

FACT THAT CANADA HAS NO

DIPLOMATIC STAFF IN THE AFFECTED

REGION.

SO THIS HAS TO BE MANAGED FROM

BEIJING, SHANGHAI AND OTTAWA.

AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING.

>> THE DETAILS OF THAT, AND

HOWEVER, THE CHINESE AUTHORITY

WILL NOT LET ANYONE WHO MIGHT BE

INFECTED ON THE PLANE.

>> WE'RE WORKING VERY CLOSELY

WITH OUR U.S. COUNTERPARTS WHO

OBVIOUSLY HAVE SOME EXPERIENCE

IN THIS AND HAVE

SET UP BEST PRACTICES.

>> Reporter: ONE OF THOSE

PRACTICES IS A VOLUNTARY

QUARANTINE AT A MILITARY BASE,

SOMETHING THAT CANADA HASN'T

RULED OUT.

>> WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IS A

SCENARIO WHERE WE HAVE ALL OF

THE MEASURES IN PLACE TO PROTECT

CANADIANS FROM EXPOSURE TO THE

VIRUS.

HAVING SAID THAT, THAT'S ABOUT

AS FAR AS I CAN GO.

>> Reporter: AT LEAST FOR NOW.

IT'S THE EARLY STAGES OF A

COMPLEX PLAN WITH STRANDED

CANADIANS DESPERATE FOR HELP.

DAVID COCHRANE, CBC NEWS,

OTTAWA.

>> Adrienne: SO IT'S NOT JUST

CANADA STRUGGLING WITH THIS,

EVEN COUNTRIES NEAR CHINA ARE

HAVING LOGISTICAL PROBLEMS

GETTING THEIR PEOPLE OUT.

SOUTH KOREA HAD FLIGHTS ALL

LINED UP ONLY TO HAVE THEM

DELAYED.

AND IN THE U.K. AND AUSTRALIA

THEY ARE DEALING WITH THEIR OWN

CHALLENGES.

KIM BRUNHUBER LOOKS AT THAT.

>> Reporter: THEY WERE SURELY

GRATEFUL TO BE BACK.

200 OR SO AMERICANS FROM WUHAN

ARRIVING AT A CALIFORNIA

MILITARY AIR FORCE BASE.

BUT THE WELCOME BY PEOPLE IN

FULL HAZMAT GEAR WAS CAUTIOUS.

U.S. OFFICIALS ARE TRYING TO

CALM THE PUBLIC, INSISTING THAT

THE PASSENGERS WERE SCREENED

BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE

FLIGHT.

>> DURING THE COURSE OF THESE

SCREENING PROCESSES, WE CHECK

FOR SYMPTOMS THAT WOULD BE

CONCERNING OF THE NOVEL

CORONAVIRUS.

INCLUDING FEVER, COUGH, AND

OTHER RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS.

>> Reporter: THE PASSENGERS

WILL BE VOLUNTARILY QUARANTINED

AND MONITORED AT THE BASE FOR 72

HOURS.

>> WHERE ARE WE?

>> Reporter: PRISCILLA DICKY

AND HER 8-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER WERE

HOPING TO BE ON THAT FLIGHT.

HER MIAMI PASSPORT WAS WITH HER

DAD IN ANOTHER STAY.

>> I DIDN'T HAVE THE PASSPORT SO

I COULDN'T GET ON THE PLANE.

>> Reporter: HELP FROM THE

CONSULATE IS DIFFICULT.

>> THE CONSULATE WAS GONE, THEY

WERE ON THE PLANE.

>> Reporter: JAPAN TOO WAS

ABLE TO GET A PLANE OF WUHAN.

THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT IS

PLANNING A CONTROVERSIAL RESCUE.

A PLANE WOULD TAKE ITS CITIZENS

TO CHRISTMAS ISLAND, 2,600

KILOMETRES FROM THE MAINLAND

WHERE THEY'D BE QUARANTINED AT A

DETENTION FACILITY FOR UP TO TWO

WEEKS.

SOME SAY THEY'D RATHER STAY BUT

THE GOVERNMENT WARNS THAT IT

MIGHT BE A ONE-TIME DEAL.

>> AND I ALSO WANT TO STRESS

VERY CLEARLY

THAT WE MAY NOT BE IN A POSITION

IF WE'RE ABLE TO DO THIS ON ONE

OCCASION TO DO IT ON ANOTHER

OCCASION.

>> Reporter: SOME OF THE

HUNDREDS OF BRITISH CITIZENS IN

WUHAN FEEL THAT THEIR GOVERNMENT

ISN'T DOING ENOUGH TO EXTRACT

THEM.

>> I THINK THAT IT'S BEEN A

SHAMBLES, TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.

I DON'T THINK THAT THE

GOVERNMENT HAVE REALLY KNOWN

WHAT THEY'VE BEEN DOING.

>> Reporter: THAT FRUSTRATION

IS SHARED BY OTHER EX-PATS

WAITING TO GET OUT.

>> PEOPLE ARE SCARED HERE,

SCARED PEOPLE GET ANGRY.

AND SCARED PEOPLE GET NO

ANSWERS.

>> Reporter: KIM BRUNHUBER,

CBC NEWS, LOS ANGELES.

>> Andrew: NOW LET'S TURN TO

THE LATEST ON THE CORONAVIRUS

SITUATION AS IT CONTINUES ITS

SLOW BUT STEADY EXPANSION FROM

WUHAN, THE EPI-CENTRE OF THE

OUTBREAK.

AT LEAST 170 PEOPLE HAVE NOW

DIED, ALL OF THEM IN CHINA,

WHERE THE TOTAL NUMBER OF

INFECTIONS HAS SHOT UP TO NEARLY

8,000.

18 COUNTRIES OUTSIDE OF CHINA

HAVE REPORTED CASES, INCLUDING

CANADA, WITH THREE SO FAR.

SOME COUNTRIES LIKE FRANCE AND

FINLAND HAVE RECORDED NEW

INFECTIONS.

AND WHILE THE W.H.O. REMINDED

THE PUBLIC TODAY THAT COMPARED

TO SARS THAT THE DEATH RATE IS

QUITE LOW AT JUST 2%, THEY ARE

NOT LETTING THEIR GUARD DOWN.

>> THE CONTINUED INCREASE IN THE

CASES AND THE EVIDENCE OF

HUMAN-TO-HUMAN TRANSMISSION

OUTSIDE OF CHINA WAS, OF COURSE,

DEEPLY CONCERNING.

>> Andrew: OF PARTICULAR

CONCERN ARE CASES IN VIETNAM,

JAPAN AND GERMANY.

ALL COUNTRIES WHERE

PEOPLE WHO HAD NOT TRAVELLED TO

CHINA HAVE BECOME INFECTED.

OKAY, I WANT TO TURN NOW TO

DR. ALLISON McGEER, AN

INFECTIOUS DISEASE SPECIALIST

AND ALSO SOMEONE WHO IS ON

FRONTLINE OF THE SARS

EPIDEMIC BACK IN 2003.

ON THE FACT THAT THIS VIRUS IS

SPREADING NOW WITHIN OTHER

COUNTRIES BESIDES CHINA, HOW

CONCERNING IS THAT TO YOU?

>> NOT AT ALL.

YOU KNOW, IF THE CHINESE CAN

CONTROL IT, WE CAN CONTROL IT.

IT'S EASIER TO CONTROL SMALL

NUMBERS OF CASES.

EACH ONE OF THOSE CASES WE LEARN

FROM AND WE KNOW THE PROBLEM

WITH BANNING TRAVEL AND

RESTRICTING TRAVEL.

IT HAS REALLY BAD CONSEQUENCES.

BETTER WE SHOULD DEAL WITH AN

OCCASIONAL CASE OUT OF THE

COUNTRY.

>> Andrew: HUMAN-TO-HUMAN

TRANSMISSION, THERE'S

CONFLICTING REPORTS WHETHER

ANYONE WHO DOESN'T FEEL SICK AT

ALL COULD STILL BE CONTAGIOUS.

WHAT IS THE TRUTH ON THAT?

>> WE JUST DON'T KNOW YET.

THERE'S INCREASING EVIDENCE THAT

IT MAY HAPPEN OCCASIONALLY, BUT,

AGAIN, IT'S NOT EVEN SO MUCH

WHETHER IT HAPPENS AS HOW OFTEN

THAT HAPPENS THAT IS IMPORTANT.

AND WE'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO

WAIT FOR THE DATA TO COME.

>> Andrew: LAST QUESTION THAT

I'VE GOT TO ASK YOU ABOUT MASKS.

IF I TOLD YOU THAT I WAS GOING

TO GO OUT TO BUY ONE TO PROTECT

MYSELF, WHAT WOULD YOU TELL ME?

>> SO IN TORONTO TONIGHT, DEAD

WASTE OF YOUR MONEY.

THERE'S NO NOVEL CORONAVIRUS IN

TORONTO, YOU CAN'T GET EXPOSED

TO IT.

YOU'RE NOT PROTECTING

YOURSELF FROM ANYTHING.

AND I ASSUME THAT YOU GOT YOUR

FLU SHOTS AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT FLU.

WHETHER IN AN OUTBREAK

SITUATION, YOU KNOW, IN HUBEI

PROVINCE IN

CHINA, MASKS MIGHT MAKE A SMALL

DIFFERENCE WHEN THERE'S

A LOT MORE

TRANSMISSION IN THE COMMUNITY.

REALLY DIFFICULT EVIDENCE TO

INTERPRET.

SOME BELIEVE THAT THERE'S SOME

BENEFIT TO MASKS, NOT HUGE, BUT

SOME.

AND SOME THINK THAT THERE'S NO

BENEFIT.

SO, UNFORTUNATELY, THE MASK

QUESTION IS JUST NOT GOING TO GO

AWAY.

WE DON'T KNOW.

>> Andrew: EVEN IN WUHAN, IT'S

NOT A SLAM-DUNK?

>> EVEN IN WUHAN, IT'S NOT A

SLAM-DUNK.

>> Andrew: DR. McGEER, THANK

YOU.

>> A PLEASURE.

>> Adrienne: AIR CANADA HAS

MOVED TODAY TO SUSPEND ALL

FLIGHTS TO BEIJING AND SHANGHAI

AFTER THE GOVERNMENT WARNINGS TO

AVOID TRAVEL TO MAINLAND CHINA.

AND IT'S NOT JUST TRAVEL, BUT

IT'S TRADE AND IT'S CONSUMER

GOODS.

SO AS PETER ARMSTRONG TELLS US,

OTHER COMPANIES ARE STARTING TO

FEEL THE PINCH OF THIS OUTBREAK

TOO.

>> Reporter: YOU NEED NOT LOOK

FAR TO SEE THE ECONOMIC

CONSEQUENCES OF THIS VIRUS.

AIRLINE AFTER AIRLINE SUSPENDING

FLIGHTS TO CHINA.

THIS AFTERNOON ONE OF AIR

CANADA'S LAST DIRECT FLIGHTS

FROM BEIJING LANDED IN

VANCOUVER.

>> LUCKY ME, I CAN COME HOME ON

TIME.

>> I WORK IN BEIJING AT A SCHOOL

AND WE WERE SHUT DOWN

INDEFINITELY UNTIL THINGS

CLEARED UP THERE.

SO I KIND OF AT 4:00 TOOK THE

NEXT TICKET OUT.

>> Reporter: IN CHINA, ENTIRE

SWATHS OF

THE COUNTRY HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN.

STARBUCKS HAS CLOSED MORE THAN

HALF OF ITS OUTLETS.

TOYOTA ANNOUNCED THAT IT WILL

CLOSE ITS PLANTS.

AND GOOGLE WILL TEMPORARILY

CLOSE ALL OF ITS CHINESE

OFFICES.

>> WHAT WE HAVE REALLY TRIED TO

DO IS TO LOOK AT WHAT WOULD A

SARS-LIKE PANDEMIC TODAY MEAN

FOR CANADA.

>> Reporter: THE FALLOUT FROM

SARS IS A DEFENSIVE ECONOMIC

MODEL.

REMEMBER THOUGH BACK IN 2003,

CHINA WAS BASICALLY THE WORLD'S

FACTORY.

TODAY CHINA IS MUCH MORE

INTERTWINED IN THE BUYING AND

SELLING OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY.

>> THE FACT THAT THE CHINESE

AUTHORITIES HAVE CLAMPED DOWN

AND THEY'VE PUT MANY CITIES IN

LOCKDOWN ALREADY, THAT MEANS

THAT THOSE CONSUMERS AREN'T OUT

THERE PURCHASING.

AND THAT WILL REALLY DAMPEN THE

CHINESE GROWTH.

>> Reporter: AND THAT

DAMPENING WILL BE FELT IN PLACES

THAT YOU MAY NOT EXPECT.

CAMERON SEAFOODS SELLS ABOUT

HALF OF ITS LOBSTERS TO CHINA.

AND CHINESE NEW YEAR IS ONE OF

THE BUSIEST TIMES OF YEAR.

THEY WERE SET TO SHIP ABOUT

20,000 POUNDS THIS WEEK.

>> THOSE ORDERS ALL CANCELLED.

SO ACTUALLY THE SALES TO CHINA

COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED FROM

MONDAY.

>> Reporter: THERE ARE

OTHER MARKETS FOR THOSE LOBSTERS

BUT THERE'S NO WAY TO MAKE UP

THE LOSS OF THE CHINESE MARKET.

AND NO WAY OF KNOWING HOW OR

WHEN THE WORLD'S SECOND BIGGEST

ECONOMY WILL REOPEN FOR

BUSINESS.

PETER ARMSTRONG, CBC NEWS,

TORONTO.

>> Adrienne: WHILE PRECAUTIONS

IN THE FACE OF THE CORONAVIRUS

ARE UNDERSTANDABLE, THERE IS

WORRY THAT CAUTION MIGHT TURN

INTO FEAR AND FEAR MIGHT SEEK A

TARGET.

>> I THINK THAT OUR RISK OF

CATCHING THIS CORONAVIRUS IS THE

SAME AS EVERYBODY ELSE.

>> Adrienne: SOME CANADIANS OF

CHINESE HERITAGE SAY THEY ARE

BRACING FOR AN UNPLEASANT

IMPACT.

IT HAPPENED BEFORE DURING THE

SARS OUTBREAK.

WE WILL LOOK AT WHAT'S HAPPENING

TODAY.

THAT IS LATER IN THE PROGRAMME.

>> Andrew: THE U.S. SENATE

USED THE QUESTION-AND-ANSWER

PORTION OF THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

TO CONTINUE SPARRING TODAY OVER

THE POSSIBLE TESTIMONY OF THE

FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR

JOHN BOLTON.

AND AS PAUL HUNTER SHOWS US,

THERE WAS AN ODD SCENE OUTSIDE

OF THE CAPITOL BUILDING WHEN

ANOTHER KEY FIGURE IN ALL OF

THIS WAS DENIED ENTRY.

>> WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING YOU WANT TO SAY --

>> Reporter: SO IT WAS YET

ANOTHER "YOU'VE GOT TO BE

KIDDING" MOMENT IN THE SENATE

TRIAL OF DONALD TRUMP.

THIS TIME INSIDE OF WASHINGTON'S

TRAIN STATION.

OUTSIDE ON A NEARBY SIDEWALK.

IN THE HALLS AND IN THE

STAIRWELLS OF CAPITOL HILL, A

SELFIE INSIDE OF A SENATE

OFFICE --

>> Question: MR. PARNAS, WHAT DO

YOU THINK ABOUT BEING

HERE TODAY?

>> Reporter: SWARMED

THROUGHOUT BY REPORTERS.

UKRAINIAN-BORN BUSINESSMAN LEV

PARNAS, TODAY HOPING TO WATCH

SOME OF THE TRIAL IN PERSON.

PARNAS IS AN ASSOCIATE OF TRUMP

LAWYER RUDY GUILIANI AND SAYS

THAT HE'S GOT PLENTY TO DISH ON

TRUMP IF CALLED AS A WITNESS.

>> I WANT TO TESTIFY UNDER OATH

TO TELL THE TRUTH.

BECAUSE I'D LOVE TO DO IT UNDER

OATH.

AND I WOULD WELCOME ALL OF THEM.

I WOULD WELCOME RUDE TOW COME IN

AND

TESTIFY UNDER OATH AND I WELCOME

THE PRESIDENT TO COME TO TESTIFY

UNDER OATH.

>> Reporter: BUT THIS IS AS

FAR AS PARNAS GOT, FACING

CAMPAIGN CHARGES AND HE'S

WEARING AN ANKLE BRACELET AND

ELECTRONICS ARE NOT ALLOWED

INSIDE.

>> THE SENATOR IS RECOGNISED.

>> I SEND A QUESTION TO THE

DESK.

>> Reporter: MEANWHILE IT WAS

A DAY OF QUESTIONS IN THE SENATE

TRIAL.

MANY LAWMAKERS FOCUSING ON

SOMEONE ELSE WILLING TO

TESTIFY -- THE FORMER NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR JOHN BOLTON.

WHOSE STILL UNPUBLISHED MEMOIR

IS SAID TO BE DAMNING TO THE

PRESIDENT.

DEMOCRATS WANT HIM TO TALK,

REPUBLICANS DON'T.

A VOTE ON IT IS EXPECTED WITHIN

DAYS.

ONE OF THE QUESTIONS TODAY --

CAN THE VERDICT BE FAIR WITHOUT

HIM?

>> THE SHORT ANSWER TO THAT

QUESTION IS, NO.

THERE'S NO WAY TO HAVE A FAIR

TRIAL WITHOUT WITNESSES.

BUT HE IS CALLED, SAID A

LAWYER FOR TRUMP --

>> THEN THE PRESIDENT WOULD HAVE

THE OPPORTUNITY TO CALL HIS

WITNESSES.

AND THERE WOULD BE DEPOSITIONS.

AND THIS WOULD DRAG ON FOR

MONTHS.

>> Reporter: AND THEY WOULD

DEEM PARTS OF HIS BOOK "TOP

SECRET."

TWEETED TRUMP, "THE BOOK IS

UNTRUE AND NASTY."

PAUL HUNTER, CBC NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

>> Andrew: WELL, THAT DRAMA

UNFOLDS INSIDE OF THE SENATE

CHAMBER, AND THE PRESIDENT

COUNTERED WITH A SIGNING

CEREMONY OUTSIDE OF THE WHITE

HOUSE.

>> President Donald Trump:

TODAY WE'RE FINALLY ENDING THE

NAFTA NIGHTMARE AND SIGNING INTO

LAW THE BRAND-NEW

U.S.-MEXICO-CANADA AGREEMENT.

VERY SPECIAL.

[Applause]

VERY, VERY SPECIAL.

>> Andrew: DONALD TRUMP SIGNED

THE NEW NORTH AMERICAN

FREE-TRADE AGREEMENT IN FRONT OF

400 GUESTS, NOTABLY NOT

INCLUDING THE DEMOCRATS WHO

HELPED TO ENSURE ITS PASSAGE

THROUGH CONGRESS.

THE DEAL INCLUDES CHANGES TO

AUTO MANUFACTURING RULES AND

OPENS UP CANADIAN DAIRY MARKETS.

CANADA STILL NEEDS TO RATIFY THE

AGREEMENT.

>> Adrienne: THE CONSERVATIVE

LEADERSHIP RACE IS EXPANDING IN

THIS COUNTRY, BUT SOME TORIES

FEEL THEY STILL DON'T HAVE THE

RIGHT KIND OF CANDIDATES.

CATHERINE CULLEN WENT TO FIND

OUT WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR.

>> THESE ARE EXCITING TIMES.

THESE ARE NOT THE TIMES FOR THE

WEAK AND THE TIMID --

>> Reporter: RICK PETERSON IS

FIRED UP ABOUT HIS CONSERVATIVE

LEADERSHIP RUN.

BUT THE GUY WHO FINISHED 12th

LAST TIME HAS SOME UNDERWHELMED.

>> HE COULDN'T EVEN WIN A SEAT.

THOSE ARE THE TYPE OF PEOPLE

THAT WE DON'T NEED IN OUR PARTY

RIGHT NOW FOR LEADERSHIP.

>> Reporter: IN FACT, THIS

WHOLE LEADERSHIP RACE HAS SOME

CONSERVATIVES FEELING THAT

THERE'S SOMETHING MISSING.

>> GOOD MORNING, EVERYONE.

>> Reporter: RIGHT NOW HE'S

THE PERCEIVED LEADERSHIP

FRONT-RUNNER.

AND HE IS TRYING TO BRING HIM

DOWN.

>> I'M IN POLITICS TO FIGHT FOR

YOU.

>> Reporter: BUT SOME

CONSERVATIVES WANT MORE CHOICE.

>> SHOWTIME AS THEY SAY.

>> Reporter: THIS M.P. SAYS

THAT AFTER

LOOKING AT THE CURRENT FIELD HE

MIGHT JUST MAKE A RUN HIMSELF.

>> I THINK THAT IT'S CLEAR THAT

PETER MacKAY HAS SEWN UP THE

RED TORY BLOC AND THERE'S A HUGE

ELEMENT OF THE BLUE

CONSERVATIVES ON THE RIGHT WHICH

ARE LOOKING FOR A CANDIDATE.

>> OVER THE WEEKEND I HEARD THAT

THERE WAS JUST A TONNE OF

ACTIVITY --

>> Reporter: SOME

CONSERVATIVES ARE STILL HOLDING

OUT HOPE THAT A BIG NAME WILL

JUMP IN.

>> PEOPLE ARE CALLING JOHN BAIRD

AND SAYING MAYBE YOU SHOULD

THINK ABOUT GETTING BACK IN.

>> Reporter: THAT'S DESPITE

THE FORMER CABINET MINISTER

TELLING FRIENDS HE WON'T RUN.

WHILE RONA AMBROSE HAS SAID

PUBLICLY SHE'S NOT RUNNING --

>> BUT RIGHT NOW I'M FOCUSED ON

MAKING A DIFFERENCE THROUGH THE

PRIVATE SECTOR.

>> Reporter: SHE IS ALSO BEING

PRESSURED TO CHANGE HER MIND.

BUT WHY THE PUSH FOR NEW

CANDIDATES?

>> WE WANT SOMEBODY THAT IS

STRESS TESTED, AND HAS BEEN RUN

THROUGH THE GAUNTLET AND

THEY CAN PROVE, NOT ONLY CAN YOU

WIN THIS, IF YOU CAN'T WIN THIS

SORT OF COMPETITION YOU

CERTAINLY WON'T BE ABLE TO BEAT

JUSTIN TRUDEAU.

>> Reporter: OTHERS WANT TO

MAKE SURE THAT THERE'S A REAL

DEBATE ABOUT KEY ISSUES.

>> THAT'S WHAT OUR PARTY NEEDS

TO OFFER THE CANADIAN PUBLIC IS

A SPICY, BOLD

VISION THAT PEOPLE CLEARLY

RESONATE WITH AND THAT REFLECTS

MODERN CANADA.

>> Reporter: AND TIME IS

RUNNING OUT.

OFFICIALLY THERE'S ABOUT A MONTH

LEFT TO ENTER THE RACE, BUT EVEN

IF A NEW FACE WERE TO JUMP IN

TODAY, OTHER CANDIDATES HAVE

BEEN OUT BUILDING SUPPORT FOR

WEEKS, EVEN MONTHS.

CATHERINE CULLEN, CBC NEWS,

OTTAWA.

>> Andrew: THERE'S A NEW PUSH

TONIGHT TO FORCE STREAMING

GIANTS LIKE NETFLIX AND SPOTIFY

TO BE A BIT MORE CANADIAN.

IT'S THE RESULT OF A LONG-AWAIT

-- LONG-AWAITED REVIEW OF THE

CANADIAN

BROADCASTING ACT, AND LOOKING AT

EVERYTHING FROM THE TAXES YOU

PAY TO THE ADS THAT YOU SEE.

HERE'S ELI GLASNER WITH THE BIG

TAKEAWAY.

>> Reporter: OPENING NIGHT OF

THE PRIMETIME CONFERENCE IN

OTTAWA IS ALL ABOUT NETWORKING

AND SHARING IDEAS.

BUT TONIGHT THE FILM AND

INDUSTRY PROS WERE BUZZING ABOUT

SOMETHING ELSE.

>> I THINK THAT IT'S BOTH

PRAGMATIC AND VISIONARY.

>> Reporter: A REPORT WITH

RECOMMENDATIONS DESIGNED TO

BRING CANADIAN BROADCASTING

RULES INTO THE DIGITAL AGE,

INCLUDING REQUIRING STREAMING

SERVICES SUCH AS NETFLIX TO

INVEST IN AND PROMINENTLY

FEATURE CANADIAN CONTENT.

>> I'M -- I AM PRETTY SURE

THEY'LL RESIST.

BUT I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA.

>> Reporter: THE CURRENT

BROADCASTING ACT WAS WRITTEN

BEFORE THE AGE OF DIAL-UP AND

THE REPORT'S AUTHORS SAY THAT WE

NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT HOMEGROWN

CONTENT IS NOT

DROWNED OUT IN THE AGE OF

STREAMING.

>> AS CANADIANS WE ALWAYS EXPECT

THAT THERE WILL BE A PLACE FOR

CANADIAN VOICES.

>> Reporter: ABOUT TIME SAYS

THE HEAD OF THE DIRECTORS'

GUILD.

>> THE STREAMERS ARE INVESTING

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO THE

CREATION OF CONTENT.

THEY ALREADY MAKE A LOT OF IT

HERE.

AND SO SAYING THAT SOME OF THAT

CONTENT WILL BE CANADIAN, WILL

BE MADE BY CANADIANS, IS -- IS

RIGHT IN THE SWEET SPOT OF THEIR

BUSINESS.

>> Reporter: THE REPORT'S

AUTHORS WANT STREAMERS TO ADJUST

THEIR ALGORITHMS TO ENSURE THAT

CANADIAN CONTENT IS EASY TO

FIND.

AND THEY ALSO WANT STREAMERS TO

COLLECT H.S.T. ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

WHILE NETFLIX HAS ARGUED THAT

SUCH PRACTICES HURT CONSUMER

CHOICES, IN RESPONSE TO THE

REPORT THEY SAID, "WE LOOK

FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THE

GOVERNMENT AS IT PROCEEDS TO

MODERNIZE CANADA'S BROADCASTING

AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS LAWS."

THERE WERE OTHER

RECOMMENDATIONS.

THE REPORT SUGGESTED

THAT THE CBC DROP ALL

ADVERTISING WITHIN FIVE YEARS.

THE CBC RESPONDED WITH, "ASKING

FOR AN ADDITIONAL $300 MILLION

IN PUBLIC FUNDING JUST TO REMOVE

ADVERTISING FROM OUR PLATFORMS

IS NOT OUR PRIORITY."

THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT HAS

PROMISED ACTION ON THE

RECOMMENDATIONS SOON.

>> I'D SAY LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS

AT THE END OF THIS YEAR AND

WE'LL SEE HOW MUCH WE WOULD HAVE

BEEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE.

>> Reporter: DELIVERING CHANGE

TO AN ACT THAT MANY INDUSTRY

WATCHERS SAY THAT IS OVERDUE FOR

AN OVERHAUL.

ELI GLASNER, CBC NEWS, OTTAWA.

>> Adrienne: NIKE'S NEW

CONTROVERSIAL RUNNING SHOE IS

USED BY THE FASTEST IN THE

WORLD, AT LEAST FOR NOW.

UP NEXT ON "THE NATIONAL," WHAT

MAKES A SHOE SO EFFECTIVE THAT

THE RUNNING WORLD COULD BAN IT.

>> I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING

ELSE IN MY LIFETIME THAT HAD A

BIGGER IMPACT ON PERFORMANCES IN

RUNNING.

>> IS THIS IT?

IS IT?

>> Andrew: PLUS, CANADIAN

CHRISTINE SINCLAIR SCORES TO

MAKE SOCCER HISTORY.

>> Adrienne: AND THE DRAMATIC

RESCUES IN A HIGH-RISE FIRE FROM

THE ROOFTOP AND THE LEDGE.

WE'RE BACK IN TWO MINUTES.

(*)

>> Adrienne: WELCOME BACK.

THERE IS AN INTERNATIONAL DEBATE

RAGING OVER A PAIR OF RUNNING

SHOES -- THE NIKE VAPORFLYS.

MARATHON RUNNERS WHO WEAR THEM

HAVE BEEN SMASHING RECORDS.

BUT WITH THE SUMMER OLYMPICS

LESS THAN SIX MONTHS AWAY, JAMIE

STRASHIN HAS THE STORY OF THE

SUSPICION THAT MAYBE THE SHOES

OFFER AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE.

>> THE NIKE VAPORFLYS ARE A

WHOLE

DIFFERENT LEVEL.

>> Reporter: CANADIAN

MARATHONER REID COOLSAET HAS

COMPETED IN TWO OLYMPICS.

HE KNEW IF HE WANTED TO COMPETE

IN TOKYO THIS SUMMER HE HAD TO

SWITCH TO THE VAPORFLY.

>> THE VAPORFLYS WERE THE ANSWER

BECAUSE THEY'RE OFTEN WORTH TWO

MINUTES IN A MARATHON,

AND IF I CAN GET TWO MINUTES, I

CAN BE COMPETITIVE.

>> IS IT THE SHOES?

>> Reporter: THE INDUSTRY IS

KNOWN FOR ITS HYPE AND

HYPERBOLE, MAKING PROMISES ABOUT

SHOES THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

BUT THESE ARE DIFFERENT.

>> I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING

ELSE IN MY LIFETIME THAT HAD A

BIGGER IMPACT ON PERFORMANCES IN

RUNNING OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS.

EVERY ROAD RUNNING RECORD THAT I

CAN THINK OF HAS BEEN BROKEN.

>> Reporter: THE NUMBERS DON'T

LIE.

THE FASTEST MEN'S AND WOMEN'S

MARATHON FINISHES EVER WERE RUN

IN THE VAPORFLIES.

IN FACT, IN THE LAST SIX MAJOR

MARATHONS,

NEARLY ALL OF THE PODIUM

FINISHERS WORE THE SHOES.

>> SO WHAT MAKES THE SHOE

DIFFERENT --

>> Reporter: THE SOLE OF THE

VAPORFLY IS A CURVED

CARBON PLATE SURROUNDED BY THICK

ULTRALIGHT FOAM.

AND THE PLATE KEEPS YOUR FOOT

FROM BENDING AND LOSING ENERGY.

>> YOU HAVE THIS MASSIVE LAYER

OF FOAM THAT IS COMPRESSING AND

GIVING YOU ENERGY BACK WITH

EVERY STEP.

>> Reporter: OTHER COMPANIES

HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO KEEP PACE

AND NOW WORLD ATHLETICS, WHICH

GOVERNS INTERNATIONAL RUNNING,

MAY LIMIT OR BAN THE SHOE, A

PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT SOME ARE

CALLING A FORM OF TECHNOLOGICAL

DOPING.

>> I'M REALLY STRUGGLING WITH

JUST WHAT IS THE LOGICAL STEP

HERE.

>> Reporter: THIS TRIATHLON

MAGAZINE EDITOR SAYS THAT

INNOVATION IS IMPORTANT BUT

WONDERS IF THESE SHOES GO TOO

FAR.

>> PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THE PURITY

OF RUNNING.

ANYONE CAN GET INTO IT.

ALL YOU NEED ARE A PAIR OF

SHOES.

AND NOW WE'RE STARTING TO SAY

MAYBE THAT ISN'T POSSIBLE.

>> Reporter: FOR REID

COOLSAET, WITH AN OLYMPIC BERTH

ON THE LINE IT'S AN EASY CHOICE

>> I HOPE THAT IT GIVES ME THAT

EDGE.

>> Reporter: THE SPORTS

GOVERNING BODY WILL DECIDE

WITHIN DAYS IF THAT EDGE IS A

FAIR ONE.

JAMIE STRASHIN, CBC NEWS,

TORONTO.

>> Andrew: AND WE'RE WATCHING

SEVERAL OTHER STORIES TONIGHT,

INCLUDING A RECORD-BREAKING

PERFORMANCE FROM ONE OF CANADA'S

TOP ATHLETES.

>> SINCLAIR IS IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE FIELD.

CHRISTINE SINCLAIR, SHE JUST

BROKE THE RECORD!

185 CAREER GOALS FOR CHRISTINE

SINCLAIR.

SHE'S HUMBLE, SHE'S A LEADER,

SHE'S A LEGEND.

>> Andrew: YEAH, THAT

BASICALLY TELLS THE STORY.

THE CANADIAN SUPERSTAR IS MAKING

SOCCER HISTORY TODAY, BECOMING

THE TOP INTERNATIONAL SCORER OF

ALL TIME WITH HER 185th GOAL.

THE 36-YEAR-OLD FROM BURNABY,

B.C., BROKE THE RECORD HELD BY

AMERICAN ABBY WAMBACH WITH A

TWO-GOAL PERFORMANCE IN THE

OLYMPIC QUALIFIER.

>>> OTTAWA IS THE FIRST CANADIAN

CITY TO DECLARE A HOUSING AND

HOMELESSNESS EMERGENCY.

>> WE NEED TO GO TO THE FEDS AND

THE PROVINCE AND TELL THEM WE'VE

GOT AN EMERGENCY, WE NEED YOU TO

ACT NOW.

>> Andrew: THE DECISION COMES

AS OTTAWA'S WAIT LIST FOR

AFFORDABLE HOUSING BALLOONED TO

12,000 PEOPLE.

A NEARLY 15% INCREASE SINCE

2017.

HUNDREDS GATHERED OUTSIDE OF

CITY HALL IN SUPPORT OF THE

MOTION.

COUNCIL HOPES THE DECLARATION

WILL CATCH THE EYE OF THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AS IT

PREPARES ITS SPRING BUDGET.

>>> AND MEMORIAL CEREMONIES TOOK

PLACE ACROSS QUÉBEC TODAY AS

SURVIVORS AND FAMILIES OF

VICTIMS MARKED THE THREE-YEAR

ANNIVERSARY OF THE QUÉBEC CITY

MOSQUE SHOOTING.

EVENTS WERE HELD TO COMMEMORATE

THE HORRIFYING EVENT THAT

SHOCKED THE COUNTRY AND LEFT SIX

PEOPLE DEAD IN 2017.

A MOMENT OF SILENCE WAS ALSO

HELD IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

WHERE M.P.s WORE GREEN SQUARES

ON THEIR LAPEL IN MEMORY OF THE

VICTIM.

>> Adrienne: THERE IS ANOTHER

UGLY SIDE TO THE CORONAVIRUS

OUTBREAK.

>> A LOT OF RACIST COMMENTS ON

TWITTER.

>> Adrienne: UP NEXT,

CANADIANS OF CHINESE HERITAGE

FEAR THE REPEAT OF THE RACISM

THEY EXPERIENCED DURING SARS.

>> Andrew: AND LATER... THREE

STORIES OF THE POTENTIAL LOSS ON

FLIGHT 752.

THE GROUNDBREAKING WORK LEFT

BEHIND.

AND THE PROMISES TO CARRY ON.

>> HOW DO WE MAKE SURE THAT

PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE KNOW WHAT

THIS

>> Andrew: WELL, BACK TO THE

CORONAVIRUS STORY NOW AND A

WORRY THAT'S NOT MEDICAL BUT

SOCIAL.

FOR SOME CANADIANS OF CHINESE

HERITAGE THERE IS CONCERN THAT

MISINFORMATION WILL MUTATE INTO

OSTRACISM OR OUTRIGHT RACISM.

IT HAPPENED DURING THE SARS

OUTBREAK, AND AS ELLEN MAURO

FOUND OUT, THERE ARE ALREADY

HINTS OF IT AGAIN.

>> Reporter: HARRY CHU'S

DAUGHTER MAY BE TOO YOUNG TO

UNDERSTAND DISCRIMATION, BUT CHU

IS SCARED SHE MAY SOON FEEL IT.

CHU DID HERSELF DURING THE SARS

OUTBREAK.

>> PEOPLE ARE DOING THINGS LIKE

WARNING CHINESE PEOPLE ON THE

SUBWAY.

THERE WAS A LOT OF FEAR.

SO WE'RE HOPING TO NOT SEE SO

MUCH OF A REPEAT OF THAT.

>> Reporter: CONCERN OVER A

REPEAT SO STRONG THAT IT

PROMPTED THESE COMMENTS TODAY

FROM TORONTO'S MAYOR.

>> WE CAN'T LET FEAR OR

IGNORANCE TRIUMPH OVER OUR

VALUES.

>> Reporter: DURING SARS,

CHINESE BUSINESSES TOOK A HIT.

FEAR OF THAT VIRUS KEEPING

PEOPLE AWAY.

CHINESE RESTAURANT.

OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.

TODAY SHAM LI HAS ALREADY

NOTICED A SLOWDOWN IN THE LUNCH

RUSH.

>> A LOT OF RACIST COMMENTS ON

TWITTER.

THERE'S DEFINITELY IMPACTS ON

THE ASIAN CROWD.

>> Reporter: INDEED, TODAY'S

ABUSE LOOKS DIFFERENT, AMPLIFIED

BY SOCIAL MEDIA.

WHEN A TORONTO BLOG PROMOTED A

CHINESE RESTAURANT ON INSTAGRAM,

RACIST COMMENTS IMMEDIATELY

FOLLOWED.

OTHER DISTURBING POSTS WERE LEFT

BY SUPPORTERS OF A PETITION TO

SCHOOLS IN THE YORK REGION NORTH

OF TORONTO.

WITH AROUND 10,000 SIGNATURES,

IT SAYS PARENTS SHOULD BE

INFORMED WHETHER ANY STUDENTS

HAVE RECENTLY TRAVELLED TO

CHINA, DEMANDING THEY BE

QUARANTINED.

THE YORK DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD

RESPONDED, WRITING, "WE MUST

COME TOGETHER AS

CANADIANS AND AVOID ANY HOPE OF

XENOPHOBIA."

A MESSAGE THAT TERRY CHU AND

OTHER MOMS LIKE MIG TAM TAKE TO

HEART.

>> A LOT OF CHINESE FAMILIES

HAVE BEEN HERE FOR A LONG TIME,

FOR GENERATIONS, RIGHT.

AND, TRUTHFULLY, OUR RISK OF

CATCHING THIS CORONAVIRUS IS THE

SAME AS EVERYBODY ELSE.

>> Reporter: AND OFFICIALS SAY

THAT RISK IS LOW.

THREE WEEKS AFTER THE DOWNING OF

FLIGHT 752 IN IRAN, OTTAWA SAYS

THAT THE REMAINS OF 12

PASSENGERS HAVE BEEN

REPATRIATED.

THOSE OF ONE MORE ARE EXPECTED.

FOR FAMILIES THE PAIN IS

INCALCULABLE, A SLIVER OF WHICH

HAS ALSO STABBED CANADA'S

ACADEMIC COMMUNITY.

DOZENS OF RESEARCHERS, TEACHERS

AND STUDENTS, SO MUCH POTENTIAL,

NOW GONE.

IOANNA ROUMELIOTIS SHOWS US

THREE OF THEM.

>> I MOVED TO CANADA...

>> [indiscernible]

>> Reporter: IT'S EERIE, AT A

VISUAL FOR HER, FOROUGH KHADEM

SEEMS TO BE SPEAKING FROM THE

GRAVE.

THE VIBRANT YOUNG SCIENTIST AT

HER CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP

CEREMONY SEEMS

SO ALIVE, SO PROUD OF HER

ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

>> I DID RESEARCH...

>> Reporter: IT'S ANOTHER

LAYER TO THE TRAGEDY.

IN THE VOID OF WHAT WAS, WHAT

COULD HAVE BEEN TOO.

>> FOROUGH WAS PASSIONATE AND

BOLD.

ALWAYS GOING FULL STEAM AHEAD

>> Reporter: FORUOGH WAS ONE

OF THE 57 KILLED IN THAT PLANE

CRASH.

A PH.D GRADUATE FROM THE

UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA AND THE

36-YEAR-OLD HAD PIONEERED

LIFE-SAVING RESEARCH.

>> FOROUGH WAS TO DO THIS...

>> Reporter: FOR HER ADVISOR

AND FRIEND, IT'S ALL STILL SO

UNIMAGINABLE.

THEY TEXTED THE DAY OF THE

CRASH.

>> SHE SAID, I'M COMING BACK.

AND THEN THE NEXT THING WE HAD

IS THAT SHE'S DEAD.

HOW DO YOU COMPREHEND THAT?

REALLY SAD.

>> Reporter: JUDE MET

FOROUGH10 YEARS AGO AND HE WAS

SO IMPRESSED WITH HER

INTELLIGENCE THAT HE OFFERED HER

THE CHANCE TO STUDY IN WINNIPEG.

>> I SAID TO HER, FORUOGH, IF

YOU EVER WANT TO DO A PH.D IN

CANADA, COME TALK TO ME AND SHE

TOOK ME UP ON THE OFFER.

I NEVER THOUGHT THAT SHE'D DO

THAT BECAUSE HER BACKGROUND WAS

IN BIOTECHNOLOGY.

>> THAT'S WHERE MY RESEARCH HAS

COME IN.

I HAVE DISCOVERED THE HIDING

SPOT OF THE PARASITE.

>> Reporter: FROM PLANT

BIOLOGY TO IMMUNOLOGY, IT WAS A

LEAP, BUT SHE EXCELLED.

HER THESIS FOCUSED ON A

TROPICAL DISEASE RAMPANT IN

NEARLY A HUNDRED COUNTRIES.

THE CULPRIT CRIPPLES THE IMMUNE

SYSTEM AND FOROUGH LEARNED HOW

THE PARASITE TURNED ON A

PARTICULAR CELL IN

THE LIVER TO EVADE DETECTION.

>> NO ONE HAD SHOWN THAT BEFORE.

>> Reporter: HOW SIGNIFICANT

IS THAT?

>> THAT'S HUGE.

>> Reporter: WOULD IT HAVE

SAVED LIVES?

>> IT WOULD HAVE SAVED LIVES.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU TARGET THAT'S A

WAY TO TREAT.

AND

WHEN YOU TREAT PEOPLE YOU CURE

THEM.

AND THAT WILL SAVE LIVES.

(*)

>> Reporter: FOROUGH'S WORK

HAD THE POTENTIAL TO SAVE

MILLIONS OF LIVES AND WHY SHE

WAS ONLY ONE OF SIX CANADIANS

SELECTED TO MEET WITH NOBEL

LAUREATES.

ACADEMIA HAD BECOME HER FAMILY.

HER PARENTS IN IRAN SENT A

MESSAGE OF GRATITUDE TO THE

COMMUNITY THAT HAD EMBRACED HER.

>> I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND THANKS

TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA.

>> Reporter: THE PLACE WHERE

SHE BUILT AN INCREDIBLE LEGACY,

WHERE HER WORK WILL CARRY ON.

>> THROUGH THE BEAUTY OF SCIENCE

SHE HAS HAD A MISSION TO MOVE

FORWARD.

WHEN A PERSON MOVES FORWARD

SHE'LL ALWAYS GET CREDIT FOR --

>> Reporter: SO SHE LIVES ON

IN THAT WAY?

>> SHE LIVES ON IN THAT WAY.

(*)

>> Reporter: THE PHOTO IS

HAUNTING BECAUSE A YOUNG MAN IN

IT IS GONE.

MOHAMMAD ASADI LARI DIED IN THAT

PLANE CRASH.

HE WAS ONLY 23 AND ALREADY

EXCEPTIONAL.

>> THERE'S A LOT OF MOTIVATION

TO SET UP SOME SORT OF

SCHOLARSHIP.

>> Reporter: AT THE UNIVERSITY

OF TORONTO, THE SHOCK IS FADING,

THE GRIEF JUST SETTLING IN.

FRIENDS LIKE GILL KAZARIN WANT

TO HONOUR HIM.

>> ALL WE COULD THINK ABOUT IS

HOW DO WE MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE

IN THE FUTURE KNOW WHAT THIS

PRISTINE EXAMPLE OF A HUMAN

BEING IS.

>> Reporter: MOHAMMAD WAS A

MEDICAL STUDENT AT THE

UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO AND WAS

ALSO PURSUING A PH.D.

>> HE SAID OH, OPHTHALMOLOGY IS

REALLY INTERESTING.

WAIT, SURGERY IS REALLY

INTERESTING.

WAIT,

A.I. IS REALLY INTERESTING.

AND I JOKED WITH HIM THAT HE

WOULDN'T DO A PH.D AT ALL

BECAUSE IT WOULD TAKE HIM SEVEN

YEARS TO DECIDE WHAT HE WANTED

TO DO.

>> AT THAT POINT IN TIME I HAD A

VERY DEEP PASSION FOR SCIENCE.

>> Reporter: AT A TEDX TALK

LAST YEAR, HE SAID THAT

SCIENCE IN ANY FORM IS HIS

PASSION.

>> THERE ARE ISSUES THAT YOU ARE

PASSIONATE ABOUT AND YOU NEED TO

TAKE ACTION ON THOSE ISSUES.

>> Reporter: HE TOOK ACTION BY

CREATING A STEM

FELLOWSHIP WHEN HE WAS JUST AN

UNDERGRAD.

THE PROGRAMME IS NOW RUN IN

SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

HE KEPT ADVOCATING FOR MORE

SUPPORT FOR SCIENCE RESEARCH,

LOBBYING POLITICIANS EVERY

CHANCE HE GOT, INCLUDING

CANADA'S DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER.

>> The Hon. Chyrstia Freeland:

I'D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT

MOHAMMAD...

>> Reporter: CHRYSTIA FREELAND

SPOKE ABOUT MOHAMMED AT A

UNIVERSITY VIGIL FOR VICTIMS OF

THE CRASH.

>> The Hon. Chyrstia Freeland:

HE CORNERED ME AND HE SAID,

MINISTER, THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO

DO MORE ABOUT THIS AND I NEED TO

MEET WITH YOU AND TALK TO YOU

ABOUT IT.

(*)

>> Reporter: MOHAMMAD WAS PART

OF A SMALL COHORT OF BRILLIANT

MINDS.

A GENERATION ON THE EDGE OF NEW

DISCOVERIES.

>> HE WAS GOING TO TRY TO BE A

CHANGE MAKER, INFLUENCER.

>> Reporter: DR. NICOLA JONES

RUNS THE UNIVERSITY'S M.D. PH.D

PROGRAMME.

>> WE ONLY TAKE 80 A YEAR AND

WITHIN THAT GROUP MOHAMMAD WAS

ACTUALLY

EXCEPTIONAL.

HE REALLY STOOD OUT.

>> Reporter: THE HOPE IS THAT

HIS LIGHT DOESN'T FADE AWAY.

>> YOU CAN TAKE ANY POSITIVE

THING FROM SUCH A TRAGEDY IS

JUST WHO MOHAMMAD WAS AND WHAT

HE STOOD FOR.

I THINK THAT EVERYBODY WHO KNOWS

HIM FEELS THAT BECAUSE OF THIS

THAT THEY'RE GOING TO TRY

HARDER, THEY'RE GOING TO DO A

LITTLE BIT MORE, THEY'RE GOING

TO TRY TO EMULATE HIM.

AND REALLY TRY TO BE CHANGE

MAKERS MORE.

TRY TO EMPOWER PEOPLE.

AND JUST TO BE A KIND, CARING

INDIVIDUAL THAT WAS MOHAMMAD.

(*)

>> Reporter: HER DESK IS

INTACT AND HER SHAW IS STILL

THERE.

FROM A FIERY INSTANT, ZAHRA

NAGHIBI BECAME A GHOST.

BOTH SHE AND HER HUSBAND DIED IN

THE PLANE CRASH.

>> IT'S A PLACE THEY TRY NOT TO

GO.

IT'S ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE.

I'M TRYING TO NOT INTERNALIZE IT

SO I CAN KEEP MYSELF TOGETHER

HERE.

BECAUSE IT'S AN ABSOLUTELY

DEVASTATING THING.

>> Reporter: ZAHRA WAS A PH.D

STUDENT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF

WINDSOR, A RISING SCIENTIST, A

RISING STAR.

>> HORRIBLE.

>> Reporter: HER SUPERVISOR IS

STRUGGLING TO CONTAIN THE LOSS.

>> THERE'S THE EMOTIONAL PART

THAT YOU TRY TO DEAL WITH AND

THEN IN A SORT OF A COLD

CLINICAL WAY THERE'S THE

PRACTICAL SIDE.

SHE WAS SUCH AN ENORMOUS FORCE.

>> Reporter: ZAHRA'S WORK

FOCUSED ON SOLAR ENERGY TO KEEP

GREENHOUSES RUNNING.

SHE HAD JUST COMPLETED THE

DELICATE PAINSTAKING TASK OF

CREATING A MODEL OF A

MICROCLIMATE.

>> ZAHRA'S MODEL COULD TELL YOU

MINUTE-TO-MINUTE WHAT THE ENERGY

CONSUMPTION WOULD BE IN A

GREENHOUSE AT ANY TIME.

SHE COULD ALSO SHOW WHAT WAS

GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.

WHICH ENABLES YOU TO DO THINGS

LIKE DESIGN A BETTER OR MORE

INNOVATIVE ENERGY SUPPLY SYSTEM.

>> Reporter: THAT NEED FOR

ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SUPPLIES IS

HUGE IN A PROVINCE WITH A NUMBER

OF GREENHOUSES THAT ARE

EXPLODING.

ZAHRA'S WORK WAS SO RELEVANT

THAT IT LED TO TWO UNIVERSITY

PROJECTS.

THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH WAS JUST

DAYS AFTER SHE DIED.

HER NAME WAS STILL ON THE

PAPERS?

>> YES, STILL ON THE AGENDA.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE HEART TO TAKE

IT OFF.

>> Reporter: WHY?

>> BECAUSE IT'S STILL HER WORK.

AND, YOU KNOW, IT WAS IMPORTANT

THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTOOD THAT SHE

WAS MISSING.

THAT THERE WAS

SOMEONE THERE WHO HAD GOT US TO

THAT POINT.

AND THEY COULDN'T BE

WITH US PHYSICALLY BUT HER WORK

WAS THERE AND WE WERE TAKING IT

FORWARD.

THESE THINGS ARE ALL...

>> Reporter: BUT FOR HER

COLLEAGUES ESPECIALLY THERE'S AN

INTANGIBLE LOSS, AND IT'S SO

HARD TO MEASURE.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU THINK OF THE

TRAGEDY OF PEOPLE LOSING THEIR

LIVES, SO MUCH TOO IS ABOUT THE

LOSS OF POTENTIAL, RIGHT?

>> YES.

>> Reporter: WHAT DO YOU THINK

WAS LOST?

>> WELL, YEAH, THE BRAIN TRUST,

THE COLLECTIVE BRAIN TRUST.

I'M ONLY INTIMATELY FAMILIAR

WITH WHAT ZAHRA WAS ABLE TO

OFFER.

BUT I KNOW THAT IT WAS

INDICATIVE OF THE REST OF THE

TALENT THAT WAS ON THAT PLANE.

SO I THINK THAT WE LOST A LOT AS

A NATION.

I CAN'T IMAGINE THE COLLECTIVE

IMPACT.

AND WE WON'T KNOW BECAUSE

IT'S VERY DIFFICULT TO QUANTIFY

THAT GOING FORWARD.

(*)

>> Reporter: ZAHRA'S

BELONGINGS WILL REMAIN UNTOUCHED

FOR 40 DAYS TO RESPECT THE

TRADITIONAL MOURNING PERIOD IN

IRAN.

THEN THE UNIVERSITY WILL SEND

THEM TO HER FAMILY THERE, LONG

BEFORE THE GRIEVING ENDS.

ON.

PARNAS HOPING TO TESTIFY BEFORE

AS MUCH AS HE HOPES TO PERSUADE

THE PUBLIC, WHAT THEY BELIEVE

BLUNT THE CHARGES, USING A

POWERFUL MEGAPHONE --

CONSERVATIVE MEDIA.

HATE YOU.

LISTEN TO THE MEDIA.

IS 100% COMING FROM THE

RIGHT-WING MEDIA.

IT'S ALMOST INDISTINGUISHABLE AT

THIS POINT WHAT IS COMING FROM

FOX AND WHAT IS, LIKE,

ORIGINATING WITH THE WHITE

HOUSE.

>> WE ARE MONITORING ALL OF THE

CABLE NEWS --

>> Reporter: RESEARCHERS AT

MEDIA MATTERS, A LIBERAL

MONITORING GROUP, SAY THAT THEIR

DATA SHOWS A DIRECT

PIPELINE BETWEEN TRUMP AND HIS

LEGAL TEAM AND THE

COMMENTARY.

SPECIFICALLY HAVE

BEEN ON FOX 365 TIMES JUST LAST

YEAR.
