Of their loved ones turning to other news now and a new bombshell revelation in the case of the two Michaels the Canadians detained in China for nearly 3 years accused of spying a new report from the globe in mail citing unnamed sources says Michael spavor is Seeking a multi-million doll

Settlement from Ottawa according to the report spavor claims he was an unwitting victim and he blames the Canadian government and Michael covrig for his detention a standing ovation for the two Michaels following their release from Chinese prisons a couple of years ago Ottawa claimed they were political pawns

Detained following the arrest of a Chinese Tech executive mungan Joe in Vancouver but according to the globe in mail spavor lawyers are telling a different story long before his arrest the entrepreneur had moved to China and was working to drum up investments in North Korea okay passort here in 2013 spavor

Made headlines when he helped to facilitate a trip to the hermit Kingdom for American basketball star Dennis Rodman that led to spab or’s unlikely friendship with North Korea’s reclusive dictator Kim Jong-un it’s alleged that spavor later recounted his experiences to fellow Canadian expat Michael cover over drinks according to the globe

Report spavor lawyers alleged that unbeknownst to him cck then shared that intelligence with officials in Ottawa and in Beijing which ultimately led to spavor arrest it’s such a immense relief to be back in Canada C was working as a diplomat at the Canadian embassy in Beijing and in 2017 joined an

Independent Global Think Tank the international crisis group the Fed federal government says C was not a spy and has never worked for CIS diplomatic officers are tasked with collecting information on security in countries of strategic importance but they are not meant to conduct covert operations a government spokesperson told Global News

Perpetuating the notion that either Michael was involved in Espionage is only perpetuating a false narrative under which they were detained by China joining us now from Montreal is G sjac who was Canada’s former ambassador to China between 2012 and 2016 uh Mr St Jo thank you so much for joining us nice

To see you uh let’s start first with with your reaction to the revelations we’ve learned today well I knew that there were ongoing negotiations uh uh taking place in Ottawa I know that uh those with Michael cck were settled some time ago I didn’t know exactly where uh

The negotiations were uh with Mr sper but of course is making uh some serious allegations and I must say that based on my experience um uh you know I don’t think it’s the the full story H what do you mean by that well I think that the

Mr sper was watched by the the Chinese security people and the reason for this is that China considers North Korea as its uh backyard and here is a foreigner a Canadian who has a very close access to the North Korean leader Kim jongan something that no Chinese has and and

For that uh there was a bit of jealousy or concern uh of how influential Mr sper could be and from my perspective I think this is the main reason why uh he was arrested by the Chinese as noted Mr C worked at the embassy there at around

The same time as your tenure was Mr C A cisus agent no no not at all in fact he was a a good political officer and there is an important distinction with spying work and uh uh political reporting work uh diplomats that are assigned to political sections abroad are charged with doing

Political reporting of course in a country like China it’s very difficult to have access to good information because it’s so opaque and Michael being able to travel around uh you know I’m sure that the the anyone at the embassy would have been interested to to hear

What he had learned during his trips and Michael Ki was very open about this you know that this was not done in in secret gjac for Canada’s former ambassador to China thank you so much for your time really appreciate it thank you the Fallout continues from a global news investigation with

Allegations that Canada has become a safe haven for hundreds of people connected to the Iranian regime they’re accused of threatening Canadians prompting calls for the federal government to respond Mercedes Stevenson joins me now from the annual Global Security Summit in Halifax hi Mercedes so what’s been the reaction there to how

Canada is handling this threat well Jeff folks here are concerned about the Iranian regime and it’s influence all around the world from Canada to the United States to the UK there are worries that Iran is not just using proxies in places like the Middle East through Hamas and Hezbollah but that

They are also involved in trying to intimidate threaten potentially even kidnap or kill Canadian American and UK citizens I sat down with Massie alinad she’s a very prominent human rights expert from Iran who previously spoke to Global News and I asked her about the prime minister’s response to our

Reporting where he said that essentially the government is doing all they can to try to deal with Iran and will continue to try to do so she had a pretty strong message for prime minister Justin Trudeau you know these are cliche and empty word and prime minister trudo I

Want to use this camera and talk to you directly don’t be scared of me and women like you know you and critical journalists and Iranian Canadians in Canada we love Canada we love peace and security and democracy we love Canada to be a shelter for you know decent people and

You’re putting the lives of Canadians in danger so I want to meet you that’s all I can say because otherwise he’s going to come up with a lot of empty words saying that we stand with the people of Iran no please sit down and make decisions how to protect uh human rights

How to protect democracy in Canada that’s very important some uh Iranian regime critics have suggested Jeff that Canada needs to criminalize the irgc right now there are rules to prevent those officials from entering Canada but it is not listed as a terror entity that’s one of the things

That many Iranian expats say they’d like to see happen Mercedes Stevenson in Halifax tonight thanks and you can hear more about this tomorrow morning on the west block that’s right here on global national security officials are investigating reports of BC companies drone detection technology was sold to Russia in violation of sanctions

From high interest rates some economists believe relief could be on the way 5-year fixed rate mortgages are already beginning to dip slightly with borrowing costs expected to fall further in the coming years promising news for some but for those with mortgages up for Renewal that relief may not come soon enough

Year already from higher interest rates and that total will probably grow as more Canadians have their mortgages renewed the interest rate hikes have caused housing costs including rents to soar giving Canadians less money to spend and fuel inflation enough that a growing number of economists now believe we’ve seen High mortgage rates reach

Their Peak and over the next few years some relief is on the way but we’re not going to go back down to levels that we saw early in the pandemic boom and Canadians probably gota H probably got to get comfortable with normal mortgage rates being something around like let’s

In tonight’s top story: Hundreds of Palestinian patients and health-care workers have left Gaza’s Al-Shifa hospital after claiming to be “forced” out by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) at gunpoint and given just one hour to leave. Though the IDF have denied this claim, they have occupied the health institution since Thursday.

Shifa has been a primary target of Israel’s, in the country’s vow to destroy Hamas militants who killed hundreds of innocent people on Oct. 7. Israeli officials claim that the hospital sits above a Hamas command center, where the Palestinian militants allegedly operate. Mike Armstrong reports.

And, after a Global News investigation found evidence that Canada has become a safe haven for affiliates of the Islamic Republic of Iran — who are allegedly threatening the lives of Iranian-Canadians and other dissidents in the country — our Mercedes Stephenson spoke with Masih Alinejad, an Iranian-American activist about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “empty words” regarding the concerns.

Over in Vancouver, Heather Yourex-West speaks with economists about a potential mortgage rate decrease in the near future, after a what some are calling a “peak” in interest rates. Soaring numbers since the end of the COVID-19 pandemic have left Canadians either struggling to pay their mortgages, or simply unable to enter the housing market. Though they likely won’t fall as low as they did during the pandemic, relief is supposedly on the horizon.

Ahead of their presidential election, a volatile political crossroads is rocking Argentina. Though he won the country’s first round of voting, centrist politician Sergio Massa has seen a whopping 150 per cent increase in inflation in his time as finance minister, leaving four out of 10 Argentinians under the poverty line. Former TV host and far-right libertarian, Javier Milei, on the other hand, is promising massive cuts to his supporters. No matter the victor, the country’s next leader will need to figure out an economy on the brink. Mike Drolet has the details.

#GlobalNews #GlobalNational #IsraelHamasConflict



  1. Hamas is underground following civilians using them as shields. Israel found 2 dead hostages at the hospital area. Then Israel dug up the buried bodies the hospital buried in a mass grave. Probably to see if there were more dead hostages.

  2. They are pushing their bogus message while demolishing a hospital and denying the war crimes they committed. Where exactly is the tunnel that connects the hospital to the Hamas base? False information is being spread by the IDF

  3. The reason for our disapproval is straightforward: we harbor no fondness for the Brotherhood. Canada and the USA are founded on principles rooted in Catholic and Christian values, and that's a fundamental aspect of our identity. If one adheres to Islam, it might be advisable to consider relocating to a country like Iran where the predominant beliefs align more closely. It's important to note that our initial compassion waned when we discovered weapons strategically placed in hospitals, schools, and even beneath children's beds. Additionally, our military is easily identifiable, unlike those who dress as civilians yet express grievances when non-combatants inadvertently become involved.

  4. It is not true that Israel ordered the evacuation; the order came from the hospital chief administrator. Why is it so easy for everyone in the west to believe the reports coming from the Gaza Health Ministry regarding the number of deaths and the actions of the IDF, when you know everything in Gaza is run by Hamas? Hamas are terrorists; brutal murderers and rapists. Do you actually believe terrorist whose main objective is the annihilation of Israel to tell the truth? And are known proxies of Iran

  5. Israel always says NO Negotiating ! BUT they go soft about hostages especially in the past ! That is why hamas took so many hostages. Example, 1 Israeli soldier for 1,000 hamas prisoners released. Some of those 1,000 are now the Leaders of hamas ! Sinwar !! Now Israel has to face the Truth !!

  6. believed to be held by Hamas?????
    so many inaccuracies and false info this is too much!!! Hamas admits holding the hostages.
    we all have family and friends murdered and kidnapped by this evil brainwashed monsters, kids and elderly, peace loving people who did nothing to deserve this atrocity.

    shame on you for favouring brutal murders by giving them a benefit of a false doubt!!!

  7. (my opinion as Palestinian) American tax payers must remember that their money are converted to bombs delivered to Israel under Biden's slogan Israel has to defend itself. He is Flattering Jewish community to win the election that he may not reach.

  8. Israel is committing genocide and has been for weeks. Sickened by the west supporting Israel in this endeavor. US quit supporting this and get out of the middle east. I wonder if the US citizens realize that the US provides millions to Israel even without unrest.

  9. If Israeli prime minister considers all Hamas members outside Gaza (Lebanon & Qatar)dead man and knowing that IDF has the capability to do so, then this could brake into a regional conflict and may risk the lives of Israelis citizens living in the countries where Hamas members are and also around the world as we have seen the increase in the number of pro-Palestine protest globally where some protests are waving Hamas flags.
    This could also be used as an excuse to fuel the action of the speech given by radical Muslim brotherhood leaders for its members living around the world to cause violence against Jewish people.
