In Canada, tensions from the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas have spilled over, resulting in two separate evacuations of an Islamic community centre and a Jewish high school near Toronto within 24 hours due to threats. This worrying trend comes amid a rise in hate-motivated incidents since the recent Hamas attack on Israel and Israel’s subsequent retaliation. Eric Sorensen reports.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) has raised alarm bells about the deteriorating conditions in Gaza, where the spread of diseases is becoming a serious concern. Israel’s military operation, involving land and air strikes, continues to pound Gaza, with the death toll increasing every day. The situation is particularly dire for those who have fled the north of Gaza, as they now face intensified attacks in the south. Redmond Shannon provides more details in this report.

Amid the ongoing conflict in Gaza, Israeli officials conducted a guided tour of the Netiv Haasara community, located on the northern perimeter of Gaza. The tour included a visit to the site where Corporal Marciano was reportedly serving as a lookout when Hamas began their attack on Oct. 7. Mike Armstrong reports.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has returned from the Asia-Pacific Economoic Cooperation (APEC) summit in San Francisco, Calif., where Chinese President Xi Jinping made it clear that he wants to strengthen his country’s ties with the United States. However, improving Canada’s relationship with China did not seem to be a priority. David Akin reports.

Global dignitaries are currently meeting at an annual global security summit in Halifax, where they have much to discuss with the violent conflicts happening around the world. The opening day mainly focused on the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin, but there is a growing demand to address the Israel-Hamas conflict in the coming days. Heidi Petracek provides the details.

Additionally, in a recent ruling, a federal judge in Canada has overturned the government’s single-use plastic ban, which included items like bags, cutlery, and straws. This ruling has been seen as a victory for opponents of the ban and could have significant consequences for the Canadian government’s environmental policies. Despite this setback, some businesses have already made the move away from plastic, although they note that the alternatives can be more expensive and less practical. Touria Izri has the details.

Finally, Calgary’s rising star and TikTok sensation, Tate McRae, is all set to make her debut on ‘Saturday Night Live’ as a musical guest. With hit singles like “Greedy” and “You Broke Me First” dominating pop music radio, McRae has already garnered over half a million views on YouTube for her latest single titled “Exes.” Heather Yourex-West looks at her journey to stardom.

  1. they didn't drop the ball as far as intelligence goes, no they weren't even looking for the ball that was dropping. inside job for pretext to do what they are doing now.

  2. "…hate crimes following Hamas' Attack Oct 7th & Isreal's BOMBARDMENT OF GAZA…"


    AH !🇨🇦

  3. they didn't drop the ball as far as intelligence goes, no they weren't even looking for the ball that was dropping. inside job for pretext to do what they are doing now.

  4. if this is a numbers game then more innocent people have been murdered in Gaza, we are all seeing this for what it is, a deliberate fail in intelligence for the pretext to destroy Gaza

  5. if this is a numbers game then more innocent people have been murdered in Gaza, we are all seeing this for what it is, a deliberate fail in intelligence for the pretext to destroy Gaza

  6. if this is a numbers game then more innocent people have been murdered in Gaza, we are all seeing this for what it is, a deliberate fail in intelligence for the pretext to destroy Gaza

  7. Really just sad to hear about those in Gaza that lost all their loved ones. I'm still shocked that all this is allowed to happen with the entire world watching and no one does a thing.

  8. Anyone in the West that thinks Islam will NOT create civil war in western countries has a rude awakening coming.
    What we see today is nothing compared to what Islam is bringing to us.
    Just think about the 80s. Very low numbers of muslims in the West. Now larger populations and the streets are unsafe. Dangerous for Jews right now. But there are many Islam conclaves which are no entry for Westerners.
    Clear to see. Stand up and stop the indoctrination of this ideaology.

  9. "..That's 2-4% of the fuel Israel says Gaza used before October 7th. The country's National Security advisor says Israel doesn't want the spread of disease to harm civilians OR Israeli soldiers" Nice touch on the "OR" , Redmond

  10. That federal judge’s probably 100 years old who doesn’t give a shiet about the future of this planet. And what science and evidence do you need to know plastic is bad for the environment (to the tw@t from York Uni)
