    >> Andrew: ON THIS FRIDAY NIGHT,
    DOUG FORD DROPS A BOMB ON
    TORONTO POLITICS AND LEAVES THE
    MAYOR FUMING.
    HIS SUDDEN DECISION TO SLASH
    TORONTO CITY COUNCIL ALMOST IN
    HALF THREE MONTHS BEFORE VOTING
    DAY IS THE LATEST CONTROVERSIAL
    MOVE FROM THE NEW PREMIER.
    HOW MUCH HAS ONTARIO CHANGED IN
    JUST 28 SHORT DAYS?
    ALSO TONIGHT, THE EXPLOSIVE
    CALIFORNIA WILDFIRE TAKING DOWN
    EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH AND THE
    CHAOTIC RUSH TO GET TENS OF
    THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF
    HARM'S WAY.
    PLUS, HE SAW HIS GIRLFRIEND
    GUNNED DOWN, THEIR LIVES CHANGED
    FOREVER.
    TONIGHT WE GO BACK TO THE
    DANFORTH.
    THIS IS "THE NATIONAL".
    >> Andrew: ONTARIO'S NEW PREMIER
    WAS ONCE A SINGLE TERM CITY
    COUNCILLOR IN TORONTO AND TODAY,
    DOUG FORD MADE IT VERY CLEAR
    WHAT HE THINKS OF HIS FORMER
    COLLEAGUES.
    >> PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF WATCHING
    CITY HALL, IT'S LIKE A COMEDY
    SHOW DOWN AT CITY HALL, THEY GO
    AROUND AND AROUND, NOTHING GETS
    DONE.
    >> Andrew: FORD'S PLAN TO CHANGE
    THAT, CUT DOWN THE NUMBER OF
    COUNCILLORS.
    THE RANKS WERE ACTUALLY DUE TO
    GROW FROM 44 TO 47.
    INSTEAD THEY'LL DROP BY ALMOST
    HALF, TO 25.
    THAT'S 20 ODD SEATS GONE.
    THEIR WARD BOUNDARIES OVERHAULED
    TO ALIGN WITH FEDERAL RIDINGS.
    DOWNTOWN CORE COULD SEE THE MOST
    CHANGE.
    THINK ABOUT IT, COME ELECTION
    TIME, ALMOST EVERY SITTING
    COUNCILLOR WILL HAVE TO DUKE IT
    OUT WITH OTHER INCUMBENT
    COUNCILLORS.
    FORD SAYS IT'S ABOUT SAVING
    MONEY.
    $25 MILLION OVER FOUR YEARS, BUT
    IT'S HOW HE'S GOING ABOUT IT
    THAT MAY BE THE BIGGEST ISSUE.
    HIS APPROACH HAS TICKED A NUMBER
    OF PEOPLE OFF.
    >> Reporter: WHEN DOUG FORD WAS
    A TORONTO CITY COUNCILLOR HE AND
    HIS BROTHER MAYOR ROB FORD WAGED
    A PITCHED BATTLE AGAINST MOST OF
    THE CITY'S ELECTED
    REPRESENTATIVES.
    ROB FORD'S CRACK SMOKING SCANDAL
    LET LED HIM TO BE STRIPPED OF
    MAYOR POWER.
    TODAY AS PREMIER FORD IS FORCING
    THE ISSUE.
    IT IS THE MOST DYSFUNCTIONAL
    POLITICAL ARENA IN THE COUNTRY,
    CITY HALL.
    THE REASON IT'S SO
    DYSFUNCTIONAL, WE HAVE 44
    PEOPLE.
    TRYING TO MAKE A DECISION.
    >> Reporter: DOUG FORD HIMSELF
    RAN FOR MAYOR OF TORONTO AND
    LOST IN 2014.
    THE MAN WHO BEAT HIM, MAYOR JOHN
    TORY IS FURIOUS AT FORD'S
    SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT.
    >> WHAT WE DON'T NEED AND WHAT I
    JUST CAN'T SUPPORT IS CHANGE
    BEING RAMMED DOWN OUR THROATS
    WITHOUT A SINGLE SECOND OF
    PUBLIC CONSULTATION.
    AND ON TOP OF THAT, DONE IN THE
    MIDDLE OF THE ELECTION PERIOD
    ITSELF.
    >> Reporter: THAT MUNICIPAL
    ELECTION IS IN JUST THREE
    MONTHS, LEAVING INCUMBENTS AND
    HUNDREDS OF CANDIDATES UNSURE OF
    WHERE OR IF THEY'LL BE RUNNING.
    THE MOVE RAISED QUESTIONS.
    >> IT SMACKS WHEN YOU TRY TO
    METAL IN THE AFFAIRS -- MEDDLE
    IN THE AFFAIRS OF SOMEONE WHO
    DEFEATED YOU AND THAT'S WHAT IS
    HAPPENING WITH JOHN TORY AND I'M
    SURE HE'S QUITE PUT OUT.
    IT DOESN'T -- IT'S NOT HARD TO
    DECIPHER THE FUTURE RELATIONS OF
    THE CITY HALL OF TORONTO AND
    FORD GOVERNMENT.
    >> Reporter: THE N.D.P. LEADER
    QUESTIONED HIS MOTIVES AS WELL.
    >> HE'S TAKING VENGEANCE, HE'S
    BEHAVING IN A MEAN SPIRITED AWAY
    AND HIS BULLYING APPROACH TO
    POLITICS IS OWEDIOUS.
    >> Reporter: PROTESTERS SHOWED
    UP TONIGHT OUTSIDE TORONTO CITY
    HALL, WHILE INSIDE THE COUNCIL
    MEETING DESCENDED INTO ANGER.
    >> WHO KNEW ABOUT THIS IN
    ADVANCE?
    BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN SUGGESTED
    THAT SOMEBODY KNEW ABOUT THIS IN
    ADVANCE AND DIDN'T BRING IT TO
    OUR ATTENTION.
    >> APOLOGIZE TO ME AND THIS
    CHAMBER FOR GETTING UP IN THAT,
    THAT WAY WHERE YOU'RE IMPLYING
    IT, BUT NOT SAYING IT.
    GET UP IF YOU HAVE THE BALLS TO
    DO IT AND SAY IT.
    >> Reporter: THE MAYOR SAYS HE'S
    CONSIDERING THE CITY'S OPTIONS.
    EVERYTHING FROM A REFERENDUM TO
    A COURT CHALLENGE.
    RON CHARLES, CBC NEWS, TORONTO.
    >> Andrew: THIS MADE WAVES
    BEYOND JUST TORONTO.
    CALGARY'S MAYOR, NOT ONE TO HOLD
    BACK, WAS CRITICAL OF FORD'S
    TIMING AND MORE.
    >> FOR YOU TO SAY TO THOSE FOLKS
    WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON HOLD
    BECAUSE THEY WANT TO DO PUBLIC
    SERVICE, BY THE WAY YOU'RE
    RUNNING FOR DOESN'T EXIST
    ANYMORE, THAT'S UNCONSCIONABLE.
    AND I STAND WITH MAYOR TORY ON
    THIS AND SAY THAT IS A DIRECT
    AFFRONT ON DEMOCRACY.
    >> Andrew: THE CONCERN TO
    DEMOCRACY IS ABOUT
    REPRESENTATION.
    CAN 25 COUNCILLORS PROPERLY
    REPRESENT A CITY OF ALMOST 3
    MILLION?
    AND GROWING.
    THAT MEANS 1 COUNCILLOR WOULD
    REPRESENT ABOUT 112,000
    CONSTITUENTS.
    THE CLOSEST CANADIAN COMPARISON
    WE COULD FIND IS CALGARY.
    1 COUNCILLOR FOR EVERY 84,000
    PEOPLE.
    AND COMPARE THAT TO MONTREAL,
    WHICH HAS 65 CITY COUNCIL
    MEMBERS, THAT'S 1 FOR EVERY
    26,000 PEOPLE AND THAT RANGE IS
    FORD'S POINT.
    IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW MANY
    COUNCILLORS A CITY HAS, GOOD
    GOVERNANCE WILL OVERCOME.
    HE POINTS TO LOS ANGELES AS AN
    EXAMPLE.
    >> WHEN I TOLD THE CITY
    COUNCILLORS IN LOS ANGELES WE
    HAD 44 COUNCILLORS AND WE HAD
    ABOUT 2.8 MILLION PEOPLE
    ROUGHLY, THEY LOOKED AT ME LIKE
    WE HAD THREE HEADS.
    >> Andrew: FORD IS RIGHT ABOUT
    L.A., IT HAS 15 CITY COUNCILLORS
    FOR A POPULATION OF 4 MILLION.
    THAT'S 1 COUNCILLOR PER 265,000
    RESIDENTS, BUT IS THAT MORE
    EFFICIENT?
    COST EFFECTIVE?
    WELL, THAT'S WHERE IT GETS A
    LITTLE COMPLICATED.
    A LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCILLOR
    MAKES A LITTLE OVER $240,000
    CANADIAN PER YEAR, A TORONTO
    COUNCILLOR MAKES LESS THAN HALF
    THAT, $112,000 AND ON AVERAGE,
    L.A. COUNCILLORS HAVE 19 STAFF
    MEMBERS WHO ARE PAID AND CAN
    MANAGE WORKLOAD.
    TORONTO, THE AVERAGE IS 3-4
    STAFF.
    NOW ON THE FLIP-SIDE TO ALL OF
    THIS, FORD AND HIS SUPPORTERS
    WOULD SAY THIS IS SIMPLY WHAT HE
    WAS ELECTED TO DO.
    CHANGE THINGS FOR ONTARIANS.
    LESS THAN A MONTH ON THE JOB, HE
    CAN POINT TO A NUMBER OF MAJOR
    POLICY CHANGES.
    FOR STARTERS, THE FORD
    GOVERNMENT STRUCK A DEAL WITH
    HYDRO ONE, THAT LED TO THE
    C.E.O. AND BOARD RESIGNING.
    FORD IS PHASING OUT THE
    CAP-AND-TRADE PROGRAMME, WHICH
    FORCED LARGE COMPANIES TO PAY
    FOR CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS.
    ON THE EDUCATION FRONT, HE
    ROLLED BACK THE SEX-ED
    CURRICULUM TO THE OLD PROGRAMME,
    THE ONE THAT DOESN'T TEACH ABOUT
    CONSENT, GENDER IDENTITY AND
    ONLINE SAFETY AND JUST YESTERDAY
    HE SAID HE WILL ALLOW PRIVATE
    RETAILERS TO SELL CANNABIS.
    THINGS ARE MOVING QUICK AND
    THERE IS LIKELY MORE TO COME.
    LET'S GET STRATEGY FROM GINNY
    ROTH.
    A CONSERVATIVE STRATEGIST, AND
    WE SHOULD SAY YOUR HUSBAND WORKS
    FOR A CURRENT PROVINCIAL
    MINISTER, SO TELL US WHAT SHOULD
    THE PUBLIC UNDERSTAND ABOUT HOW
    DOUG FORD IS OPERATING HERE?
    >> Reporter: HE'S MOVING QUICKLY
    BECAUSE HE HAS A MANDATE TO DO
    SO.
    THE VOTERS ELECTED HIM TO MAKE
    CHANGE HAND HE'S MAKING CHANGE.
    I THINK PEOPLE ARE GOING LIKE IT
    BECAUSE HE HAS THE SINGLE MINDED
    FOCUS ON GETTING THINGS DONE
    QUICKLY AND MAKING SURE IT'S FOR
    THE PEOPLE.
    THAT WAS HIS MANDATE, THAT'S HIS
    APPROACH.
    >> Andrew: CAN YOU DO IT THIS
    QUICKLY AND STILL GET IT RIGHT?
    >> I THINK YOU CAN.
    BECAUSE HE'S GOT A MANDATE FOR
    IT.
    AND HE'S DOGGED IN SAYING, IF WE
    DON'T SEE RESULTS ON THE GROUND,
    IF PEOPLE DON'T SEE THE GAS
    TAXES GO DOWN, FEWER POLITICIANS
    INSTEAD OF MORE, WE'RE NOT DOING
    THINGS RIGHT.
    IF THEY DON'T SEE IT QUICKLY,
    THEN THEY WON'T GET THE MANDATE
    THEY ASKED FOR WHEN THEY VOTED
    FOR US.
    THERE COULD BE RISKS.
    YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE CABINET
    MINISTERS ARE NEW, THEY'RE
    LEARNING ON THE JOB.
    BUT SO LONG AS YOU SEE THE
    DISCIPLINE, I THINK IT'S ALWAYS
    WORTH LEANING FORWARD AS HE'S
    DOING AND GETTING RESULTS.
    >> Andrew: SO THEN SET THE TABLE
    FOR US AND LOOK FORWARD FOR US
    IN TERMS OF WHAT YOU THINK MIGHT
    BE COMING DOWN THE PIPE THAT
    PERHAPS MAY HAVE AS BIG OF A
    SPLASH AS TODAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT?
    >> SO THEY PACKED A LOT IN,
    REPEALING CAP-AND-TRADE,
    REPEALING SEX-ED, THEY'RE MOVING
    FORWARD AND THE BIG PIECE THAT
    IS COMING IS FINANCIAL.
    ON THE BUDGET, ON THE FALL
    ECONOMIC STATEMENT, THEY'VE
    LOOKED AT THE BOOKS.
    THEY HAVE A COMMISSION THAT IS
    LOOKING INTO THE SIZE AND COST
    OF GOVERNMENT.
    SOME OF THE RAMPANT WASTE FROM
    THE LAST GOVERNMENT.
    I DON'T THINK THE REPORT IS
    GOING TO BE GOOD.
    THAT'S GOING TO MEAN THAT
    THEY'RE GOING TO DIG IN AND FIND
    SAVINGS, BUT THAT'S WHAT THEY
    WERE ELECTED FOR AND PEOPLE ARE
    LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
    >> Andrew: THANK YOU FOR JOINING
    US.
    JUST IN A FEW MOMENTS ON "THE
    NATIONAL", WE'LL TAKE YOU TO
    NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WHERE A
    WILDFIRE IS JUST 3% CONTAINED.
    HOMES ARE BURNING.
    AFTER A TOUGH TWO WEEKS FOR
    DONALD TRUMP, SOME GOOD NEWS IN
    THE ECONOMIC UPDATE.
    ARE INTERNATIONAL TRADE SPATS
    HELPING HIM AT HOME?
    FIRST, SOMETHING THAT HITS CLOSE
    TO HOME.
    AN EMOTIONAL MOMENT ON THE
    DANFORTH TONIGHT IN TORONTO.
    >> I LOVE IT AND I CAN'T BELIEVE
    THAT HAPPENED HERE.
    I HAVE A LITTLE SON AND HE EVEN
    NOTICED THAT SOMETHING HAPPENED,
    HE SAID WHY IS THE STREET TAPED
    OFF?
    AND THAT'S HEARTBREAKING FOR ME.
    >> Andrew: SO, SHE RETURNED TO
    THE DANFORTH THIS EVENING TO
    JOIN IN A MOMENT OF SILENCE
    ORCHEST
    ORGANIZED BY THE BUSINESSES THAT
    LINE THE STRIP AND THE
    EMPLOYEES.
    THE LATEST STEP ON A LONG ROAD
    BACK TO NORMAL.
    IT WILL BE A LONG ROAD,
    ESPECIALLY FOR DANIELLE KANE, A
    NURSING STUDENT.
    SHE WAS THE ONE BEING CARED FOR
    TODAY AS DOCTORS PERFORMED HER
    FOURTH SURGERY.
    SHE WAS WITH HER BOYFRIEND JERRY
    PINKSEN WHEN SHE WAS SHOT.
    WE JOINED PINKSEN AS HE MADE THE
    DIFFICULT JOURNEY BACK TO THE
    SPOT WHERE EVERYTHING CHANGED.
    >> I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BEST TO
    COME HERE AND JUST TO SEE THE
    SITE, SEE IF I CAN SEE IF I CAN
    START THE HEALING PROCESS, A
    LITTLE QUICKER.
    >> Reporter: JERRY PINKSEN AND
    HIS GIRLFRIEND DANIELLE KANE
    USED TO LOVE THE DANFORTH, BUT
    LAST SUNDAY, THEIR LIVES WERE
    CHANGED FOREVER.
    DANIELLE WAS SHOT IN THE
    ABDOMEN, IT SHATTERED A
    VERTEBRA.
    HER FAMILY FEARS SHE MAY NEVER
    WALK AGAIN.
    >> I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT
    PEOPLE KNOW HER SACRIFICE.
    >> Reporter: PINKSEN SAYS SHE
    FOLLOWED HIM OUT OF THE
    RESTAURANT THAT NIGHT TO HELP
    SOMEONE WHO WAS INJURED.
    THAT IS WHEN SHE WAS SHOT.
    >> I INITIALLY SAW A LOT OF --
    FELT A LOT OF GUILT BECAUSE LIKE
    IT WAS MY INITIAL DECISION TO GO
    OUTSIDE TO HELP THE WOUNDED.
    I'M THE ONE -- I'M THE ONE WHO
    DID THIS -- I MADE THE DECISION
    TO GO OUT.
    AND SHE -- SHE GOT INJURED.
    >> SHE IS THE PERSON WHO WANTS
    TO HELP?
    >> THAT'S WHY I FELL IN LOVE
    WITH HER.
    THAT'S WHY I LOVE HER SO MUCH,
    SHE'S SUCH A SELFLESS PERSON.
    >> Reporter: AFTER HER COUSIN
    FIRST SHARED HER STORY WITH "THE
    NATIONAL", THERE IS OUTPOURING
    OF SUPPORT FOR KANE.
    THERE HAS BEEN GO FUND ME SET UP
    FOR REHAB AND HOUSING.
    >> WHEN I HEAR THE KIND WORDS,
    IT JUST FILLS ME UP AND ALLOWS
    KNOW KEEP GOING.
    >> Reporter: HOW ARE YOU FEELING
    COMING UP TO THE RESTAURANT?
    >> I -- I THINK I'M READY.
    I THINK I'M -- I THINK I WANT TO
    SEE IT.
    >> Reporter: WE'RE HERE.
    >> WE WERE RIGHT HERE.
    ON THE PATIO.
    AND -- THIS IS THE EXIT WHERE WE
    CAME OUT OF.
    >> Reporter: WHY IS IT IMPORTANT
    TO GET YOURSELF BACK HERE?
    TO SEE THIS, TO FACE THIS?
    >> IT HELPS TO TALK ABOUT IT.
    IT HELPS TO LESSEN THE ANGER AND
    HELPS TO LESSEN THE FEAR.
    AND WHEN DANIELLE IS READY AND
    ABLE, I WANT TO BRING HER BACK
    HERE, I WANT HER TO SEE IT, AND
    I WANT US TO HEAL TOGETHER.
    >> Andrew: LATE TODAY, WE GOT
    WORD FROM DANIELLE'S FAMILY
    ABOUT TODAY'S SURGERY.
    HER FOURTH AS I MENTIONED SINCE
    SHE WAS SHOT.
    THEY SAID THE SURGERY WAS A HUGE
    SUCCESS.
    THIS IS LIKELY HER FINAL
    SURGERY.
    THEY'RE STARTING TO WEAN HER OFF
    THE VENTILATOR AND DECREASE
    SEDATION.
    HOPEFULLY SHE'LL BE ABLE TO
    SPEAK BY MONDAY.
    THE NEXT STEP IS REHABILITATION.
    >>> LET'S TAKE YOU WEST TO
    CALIFORNIA, WHERE A FAST MOVING
    WILDFIRE HAS KILLED TWO PEOPLE.
    IT'S KNOWN AS THE CAR FIRE.
    BURNING IN THE STATE'S NORTH.
    THAT WALL OF FLAMES BEING
    FUELLED BY DRY CONDITIONS AND
    EXTREMELY HOT TEMPERATURES.
    THE FIRE IS ALREADY BURNED DOWN
    DOZENS OF BUILDINGS AND IT'S
    SURGING TOWARD MAJOR RESIDENTIAL
    AREAS.
    THAT HAD EMERGENCY OFFICIALS
    PUTTING OUT AN URGENT PLEA FOR
    PEOPLE IN REDDING.
    THE WARNING TO EVACUATE
    IMMEDIATELY.
    THIS IS JUST SOME OF WHAT IS
    POSTED ONLINE.
    YOU SEE THE NIGHT SKY AGLOW WITH
    ORANGE AND RED FLAMES AS THE
    FIRE TORE THROUGH THE MOUNTAIN
    WEST OF REDDING.
    IT IS THE REGION'S LARGEST CITY.
    SCARY STUFF.
    AND IMAGINE HAVING JUST MOVED
    IN.
    >> MY COWORKERS LIKE, OH, THE
    FIRE IS COMING AND EVERYBODY
    FROM CALIFORNIA IS USED TO
    FIRES, SO ME BEING FROM THE
    MIDWEST WHO IS NOT USED TO
    FIRES, I IMMEDIATELY WAS
    FREAKING OUT AND CRYING, AND I
    WAS LIKE, WHAT IF IT COMES HERE
    AND I LOSE ALL MY STUFF?
    I HAVE TO GO GET MY THINGS.
    I KEEP GOING THROUGH THINGS I
    FORGOT TO BRING, OH, MAN AND
    THEY'RE STUPID THINGS, BUT I
    KEEP THINKING ABOUT IT.
    I'M LIKE, OH.
    >> SARA DAY IS ORIGINALLY FROM
    DETROIT.
    SHE MOVED TO REDDING A FEW
    MONTHS AGO, RIGHT INTO THE PATH
    OF THE FIRE.
    >> I WAS REALLY AFRAID OF MY
    FAMILY WAS IN THE MIDWEST AND I
    WAS REALLY AFRAID THAT IF I
    WASN'T PREPARED THAT I WOULD
    NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN.
    AND IT WAS JUST LIKE I DIDN'T
    WANT TO BE CAUGHT UNAWARE, I
    WANTED TO PLAN, IT'S THE FIRST
    TIME I'VE EVER HAD TO DO
    ANYTHING LIKE THIS.
    BECAUSE IN THE MIDWEST WE GET A
    TORNADO AND BLIZZARD, AND I'M
    LIKE, A BLIZZARD IS WORST THAN A
    FIRE.
    THEY SAY IT'S REALLY BAD.
    FOR CALIFORNIANS TO SAY IT'S
    BAD, THAT MEANS IT'S REALLY BAD.
    >> Andrew: RIGHT NOW, SHE'S IN A
    SAFE PLACE, BUT THAT FIRE IS
    STILL BURNING AND WILL FOR SOME
    SOMETIME.
    IT'S JUST 3% CONTAINED.
    AND THE WEATHER ISN'T EXPECTED
    TO OFFER RELIEF.
    BAD NEWS FOR THE NEARLY 2000
    FIREFIGHTERS ON HAND.
    >>> A NUMBER OF WILDFIRES ARE
    ALSO BURNING ON THIS SIDE OF THE
    BORDER.
    THERE ARE AIR QUALITY STATEMENTS
    IN B.C. AND IN ONTARIO THERE ARE
    AT LEAST A DOZEN WILDFIRES.
    HAVE A LOOK.
    THESE ARE PICTURES OF THE FIRE
    IN PARRY SOUND, NORTH OF
    SUDBURY.
    AN ALBERTA FIREFIGHTER WAS
    KILLED BATTLING A WILDFIRE NORTH
    OF THUNDER BAY IN ONTARIO.
    HE DIED WHILE TRYING TO PROTECT
    THE TOWN OF RED LAKE.
    >>> HERE'S A LOOK AT WHAT ELSE
    WE'RE TRACKING.
    CHARGES LAID IN WHAT POLICE ARE
    CALLING A HATE MOTIVATED CRIME.
    THE ALTERCATION CAUGHT ON VIDEO.
    >> IF YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME,
    WHAT?
    >> Andrew: IT HAPPENED MONDAY
    EVENING.
    THE MAN APPEARING ON THE VIDEO
    TO YELL RACIST INSULTS AS A
    FAMILY AND PUSHING ONE OF THEM.
    50-YEAR-OLD LOMBRAY BALL
    APPEARED IN COURT ON CHARGES OF
    ASSAULT AND UTTERING DEATH
    THREATS.
    >>> CHASE THE ACE WINNERS IS
    GOING TO COURT, I'M TAKING THEM
    TO COURT.
    >> THIS NOVA SCOTIA WOMAN HAS
    FOLLOWED THROUGH ON HER THREAT.
    SHE IS SUING HER NEPHEW OVER A
    $1.2 MILLION CHASE THE ACE
    JACKPOT.
    REDDICK'S NAME WAS ON THE
    CHEQUE, BUT SO WAS HER NEPHEW.
    THEY SPLIT THE PRIZE, BUT
    REDDICK SAYS SHE PAID FOR THE
    TICKET AND HER NEPHEW'S NAME WAS
    ONLY WRITTEN ON IT FOR GOOD
    LUCK.
    >>> AND STARGAZERS FROM EUROPE
    TO AUSTRALIA GOT QUITE A TREAT
    TODAY.
    THE LONGEST TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE
    ANY HUMAN WILL SEE THIS CENTURY
    LASTED AN HOUR AND 42 MINUTES.
    THAT'S THE EARTH RIGHT BETWEEN
    THE SUN AND THE FULL MOON IN A
    STRAIGHT LINE, GIVING THE MOON
    THE DEEP RED COLOUR WHICH IS WHY
    FOLKS CALL IT A BLOOD MOON.
    YOU WON'T SEE ONE AS LONG AS
    TODAY'S FOR ANOTHER 100 YEARS OR
    SO, THE YEAR 2123.
    >>> STILL AHEAD ON "THE
    NATIONAL", WHY YOU'LL START
    SEEING MORE SIZES IN MORE
    CLOTHING STORES.
    AS ALWAYS, IT'S ABOUT THE BOTTOM
    LINE.
    >>> BRITISH AD CAMPAIGN MADE IN
    CANADA.
    OUR FIRST LOOK AT THE TARGETED
    BREXIT ADS MADE BY A CANADIAN
    COMPANY THAT SOME SAY SWAYED THE
    VOTE.
    >> AND A 13-YEAR-OLD FROM
    TORONTO WOWS THE CROWD ON U.S.
    NATIONAL TELEVISION.
    >> I WAS NERVOUS.
    COMBINATION OF NERVOUSNESS AND
    EXCITEMENT.
    AND ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS SING.
    * YOU RAISE ME UP
    *
    * SO I CAN STAND ON MOUNTAINS
    >> Andrew: ASK DONALD TRUMP WHO
    DESERVES CREDIT FOR A SURGE IN
    THE U.S. ECONOMY AND HE'LL SAY,
    HE DOES.
    THAT WON'T SURPRISE A HECK OF A
    LOT OF PEOPLE, BUT THIS TIME,
    EVEN SOME OF HIS BIGGEST
    ATTRACTERS ADMIT HE MIGHT BE
    RIGHT.
    APRIL THROUGH JUNE THIS YEAR,
    THE U.S. ECONOMY GREW AT ITS
    FASTEST PACE SINCE 2014, BUT AS
    LYNDSAY DUNCOMBE TELLS US, MANY
    ARE ASKING HOW LONG CAN IT LAST?
    >> Reporter: SUMMERTIME AND THE
    SPENDING IS EASY.
    IN THIS HIGH END SHOPPING
    COMPLEX IN D.C.
    >> I'M NOT GOING OUT TO BUY A
    ROLLS-ROYCE, BUT IF I NEED TO
    BUY A CAR, I CAN MAKE THE
    PAYMENT.
    >> Reporter: CONSUMER CONFIDENCE
    IS ONE OF THE REASONS U.S.
    G.D.P. GREW 4.1% IN THE LAST
    THREE MONTHS.
    NEARLY DOUBLE GROWTH IN THE
    FIRST QUARTER OF 2018.
    THE STRONGEST EXPANSION IN FOUR
    YEARS.
    ECONOMY WATCHERS CONCLUDE --
    >> IT'S A VERY GOOD SOLID
    PICTURE.
    >> Reporter: SO GOOD, DONALD
    TRUMP HELD AN IMPROMPTU
    ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
    >> THESE NUMBERS ARE VERY
    SUSTAINABLE.
    >> Reporter: THAT'S WHERE MANY
    ECONOMISTS DISAGREE.
    THEY WORRY ALL THE SPENDING IS A
    ONE TIME EFFECT OF JANUARY'S TAX
    CUT.
    AND POINT OUT THAT SOME OF THAT
    GROWTH IS DUE TO PREPARATIONS
    FOR TRUMP'S TRADE SHOWDOWNS WITH
    COUNTRIES BUYING UP PRODUCTS,
    SUCH AS SOYBEANS BEFORE TARIFFS
    KICK IN.
    EVEN THE PRESIDENT'S SUPPORTERS
    PRAISE HIM WITH AN ASTERISK.
    >> FOR MANY AMERICANS, WE'RE
    HAVING THE BEST ECONOMY OF OUR
    LIFETIME AND IT'S MAINLY DUE TO
    PRESIDENT TRUMP.
    I JUST HOPE WE DON'T BLOW IT ALL
    ON A GLOBAL TRADE WAR.
    >> Reporter: THAT'S WHERE THE
    UNCERTAINTY COMES IN.
    THE TRADE CONFLICTS WITH CHINA,
    EU AND CANADA HASN'T KICKED IN
    YET.
    TRUMP IS ALREADY TRYING TO
    MITIGATE THE IMPACT.
    JUST THIS WEEK, DIALLING BACK
    THE RHETORIC WITH THE EU AND
    PROMISING NEW TRADE TALKS.
    AND ANNOUNCING A $12 BILLION
    BAILOUT PACKAGE FOR FARMERS.
    >> IT'S A STEP IN THE RIGHT
    DIRECTION THAT HELPS FARMERS A
    LITTLE BIT.
    BUT REALLY WE'D RATHER GET PAID
    BY THE MARKET THAN HAVE A
    GOVERNMENT BAILOUT.
    >> Reporter: ONE THING IS
    CERTAIN ABOUT TODAY'S NUMBERS,
    THERE IS SOMETHING REPUBLICANS
    CAN CAMPAIGN ON.
    THE NEXT QUARTERLY REPORT DOES
    NOT COME OUT UNTIL 11 DAYS
    BEFORE THE MIDTERM ELECTION.
    >> Andrew: AN UPDATE TO A STORY
    WE BROUGHT YOU LAST MONTH.
    A MEXICAN REPORTER AND HIS SON
    ARE NOW FREE AFTER SPENDING
    MONTHS IN U.S. FEDERAL
    DETENTION.
    ANTÓNIO GUTERRES AND HIS SON
    OSCAR, THEY WERE OVERJOYED.
    >> HE SAYS HIS SON GAVE HIM THE
    INSPIRATION TO CARRY ON.
    THE TWO OF THEM FLED PERSECUTION
    IN MEXICO AND HAVE BEEN TRYING
    TO GET ASYLUM FOR A DECADE, BUT
    LAST DECEMBER, THEY WERE
    SUDDENLY IMPRISONED BY

    YOU CAN SEE THE FAINT COAST IN
    THE DISTANCE.
    THIS MAY BE BRITAIN'S GATEWAY TO

    THAT DOESN'T SOUND RIGHT.

    IT.

    THE TIME?

    IT IS UNCLEAR HOW THE

    >> Reporter: SOMETIMES IT CAN BE
    IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL THESE ARE
    POLITICAL ADS JUST BY LOOKING AT
    THEM.
    THEY CAN SEEM LIKE A POLL OR
    EVEN A GAME.

    THE STORY.

    >> WE'RE NOT A PLUS SIZE BRAND,
    WE'RE A BRAND OF APPAREL FOR
    WOMEN AND I REALLY STRONGLY
    BELIEVE THAT
    YOU, YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FOR IT.
    IF YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO FIGHT
    FOR YOUR HOME, YOU DON'T DESERVE
    IT.
    >> THIS IS THE STORY ABOUT
    LOSING THINGS THAT MATTER MOST.
    A COMMUNITY, A SENSE OF
    BELONGING.
    THE PLACE YOU CALLED HOME FOR 50
    YEARS.
    FOR HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE IN
    CALGARY, MIDFIELD MOBILE HOME
    PARK WAS SUCH PLACE, BUT WHEN
    THE CITY DECIDED TO CLOSE IT,
    SOME RESIDENTS DUG IN FOR A
    FIGHT, PERHAPS NONE MOSO THAN
    83-YEAR-OLD RUDY PREDIGER.
    A SHORT DOC, CALLED EVICTION
    NOTICE.
    >> YOU KNOW, I'M IN MY 80s AND I
    DON'T PLAN ON GETTING RICH.
    MY DAUGHTER SAID TO ME ONE TIME,
    SHE JOKES WITH ME, MY YOUNGEST,
    SHE SAID, DAD, GIVE ME SOME OF
    YOUR MONEY, I SAID WHY, SHE SAID
    YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU.
    I SAID THEN I'M NOT GOING.
    THEY WANT THIS LAND.
    SOME PEOPLE ARE ESTIMATING IT'S
    WORTH $90 MILLION, SOME SAY $60
    MILLION.
    THIS IS MY HOME.
    I SPENT $25,000 LAST YEAR
    PUTTING A NEW ROOF AND UPGRADING
    THE WHOLE THING.
    NEW SIDING.
    I CAN'T JUST WALK AWAY.
    YOU KNOW.
    IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
    >> THIS TREE HERE, I PLANTED
    THAT WHEN I WAS ABOUT A FOOT AND
    A HALF HIGH.
    AND THE CITY ONE DAY IS GOING TO
    COME IN HERE AND HIT MY TREE
    WITH A BULLDOZER.
    WELL, I LOOK AT THE GOLF COURSE,
    I SAY YOU GOT 3-400 PEOPLE
    LIVING IN THIS PARK AND SIX
    PEOPLE ON THE GOLF COURSE
    COVERING ABOUT 5,000 ACRES.
    AND THEY HAVE NO PLACE FOR US.
    RIDICULOUS.
    I'M NOT TELLING THEM TO REMOVE
    THE GOLF COURSE.
    I'M TELLING THEM TO REMOVE
    THEMSELVES FROM OUR WAY OF LIFE.
    IF THEY DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T
    TREAT US LIKE TRAILER TRASH.
    >> IF YOU PLAY NICE, THEY'LL
    WALK ALL OVER YOU.
    ONLY THING THAT IS GOING TO SAVE
    US IS THE PRESS AND THE MEDIA.
    YOU HAVE TO EMBARRASS.
    >> THE FUTURE OF MIDFIELD PARK
    HAS BEEN UP IN THE AIR SINCE THE
    EARLY 2000s WHEN CONCERNS
    SURFACED OVER FAILING WATER AND
    SEWER LINES.
    >> YOU CANNOT FIX THE SEWER
    WITHOUT REMOVING THE HOUSE
    BECAUSE OF THE WAY THE LAND IS
    BUILT.

    WILL PREFER THE VALUABLE
    PROPERTY TO BE USED FOR MIXED

    2006.
    >> Reporter: RUDY PREDIGER LEADS
    A COMMUNITY CO-OP AND HE SAYS
    THERE IS ONLY ONE DEAL HE WILL
    ACCEPT.
    >> TO GET OUT OF HERE AND LEAVE
    US ALONE.
    >> THERE IS QUITE A FEW PEOPLE
    IN HERE THAT THINK THEY'LL BE
    ABLE TO WALK UP TO A LAWYER AND
    FIGHT AND STAY IN HERE.
    WE'RE GOING TO SAVE THE PARK,
    YOU'RE NOT SAVING SHIT.
    IT'S GOING TO BE TAKEN, PERIOD.
    YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE YOUR HOME.
    THERE IS NO MORE FIGHT.
    THERE IS NO MORE TIME.
    >> I'M GOING TO MISS IT.
    >> UNDER THE MOBILE HOME TENANCY
    ACT, HAD TO GIVE ONE YEAR
    NOTICE, WE SAID THAT WASN'T
    FAIR, WE GAVE THREE.
    NO COMPENSATION IS PAYABLE, WE
    SAID THAT WASN'T FAIR, SO
    EVERYBODY IS GETTING $10,000
    CASH PLUS HELP WITH THE MOVING
    EXPENSES, PLUS, OF COURSE, THEY
    STILL OWN THEIR HOME.
    SO OF THE 183 HOMES THAT WE'VE
    SEALED, I BELIEVE THAT 150 HAVE
    MOVED ALREADY.
    ABOUT 40 HAVE PLANS TO MOVE
    BEFORE THE END OF THE MONTH.
    ABOUT 10 WE HAVE NOT HEARD FROM
    YET.
    >> A YEAR AGO I WAS STARTING TO
    HAVE PAINS AND EVERYTHING AND
    THEN I FINALLY WENT GOT CHECKED
    OUT.
    AFTER A MONTH OR SO, DIAGNOSIS,
    I FOUND OUT I HAD STOMACH
    CANCER.
    SO I WENT BACK TO WORK AND SAID,
    WELL, I CAN'T WORK NOW BECAUSE
    I'VE GOT OTHER ISSUES TO DEAL
    WITH.
    AND LEFT WORK, CAME HOME HERE,
    AND WALKED INTO THE FRONT DOOR
    AND THAT'S WHEN THE NOTICE WAS
    ON THE FRONT DOOR SAYING THAT WE
    HAVE TO LEAVE HERE AT THE END OF
    SEPTEMBER.
    SO, THEN I JUST KIND OF THREW
    THAT ASIDE, BECAUSE I HAD OTHER
    ISSUES TO WORK ON RIGHT NOW.
    I WAS IN A LOT OF PAIN AND
    EVERYTHING.
    SO WE GOT THROUGH THAT.
    NOW I GOT TO GET THROUGH THIS.
    >> RESIDENTS HAVE A LAWYER
    WORKING ON THEIR BEHALF.
    HE TOOK IT TO COURT TODAY.
    AT A HEARING IN NOVEMBER, HE
    WILL ARGUE THE CITY'S REASONS
    FOR EVICTING THE RESIDENTS GOES
    AGAINST THE PROVINCE'S MOBILE
    HOMESITE TENANCY ACT.
    >> WE'RE HERE TO GO IN FRONT OF
    THE JUDGE AND FIND OUT WHICH WAY
    THINGS ARE GOING TO GO.
    >> HOW ARE YOU FEELING ABOUT
    YOUR CHANCE?
    >> I ALWAYS FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT,
    OTHERWISE I WOULDN'T BE HERE.
    [LAUGHTER].
    >> THE KEY THING HERE IS, AND
    THE THING THAT THE JUDGE IS
    GOING TO BE DECIDING WITH THIS
    APPLICATION, IS WHETHER OR NOT
    WHAT THE CITY DID WAS WRONG.
    FOR THE PEOPLE STILL THERE,
    THERE IS HOPE THEY'RE GOING TO
    CONTINUE TO BE THERE.
    THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT
    STRESS DOES TO A PERSON.
    IT'S KILLING US, IT'S KILLING
    US.
    I DON'T WANT TO SEE ANYMORE
    CRYING.
    >> MONDAY, 10:52 A.M., HI,
    THERE, TRIED TO GET YOU THREE
    TIMES, I LEFT A MESSAGE BEFORE,
    BUT YOU DIDN'T CALL BACK, SO
    GIVE ME A CALL BACK.
    >> GIVE ME A CALL.
    TALK TO YOU LATER.
    >> HEY, RUDY, I'M GOING TO COME
    OVER TO THE HOUSE.
    OK?
    >> WHEN YOU FELL TODAY, WERE YOU
    DIZZY?
    >> I DON'T KNOW, I WOULD HAVE
    SAT DOWN.
    >> HAD PNEUMONIA AND I THINK
    THAT'S BECAUSE I WAS LAYING ON
    THAT COLD FLOOR FOR SO LONG.
    I THINK ABOUT 30 HOURS.
    >> I DON'T WANT TO BE IN SOME
    HOME.
    YOU KNOW.
    IF I'M GOING TO DIE, I'LL DO IT
    AT HOME.
    >> YEAH, LAY DOWN NOW.
    WHEN I WAS GONE IN THE HOSPITAL,
    WHEN I COME HOME, I WENT AND
    LAID DOWN ON THE BED AND SHE
    LAID DOWN BESIDE ME AND
    SOMETHING WOKE ME UP, AND HERE
    SHE IS RIGHT HERE, LICKING MY
    NOSE.
    LAYING ON THE BED AND LICKING MY
    NOSE.
    GLAD I COME BACK.
    >> HELLO?
    >> HELLO.
    >> SO YOU GOING TO FILL ME IN ON
    EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED DOWN AT
    THE COURTHOUSE?
    >> I JUST HEARD ON THE RADIO
    HERE THAT THE JUDGE ORDERED
    EVERYBODY OUT.
    THAT'S ALL I KNOW.
    YEAH.
    JUST THE NEWS YOU NEEDED TO HEAR
    TODAY, HUH?
    >> I WAS PLANNING ON RETIRING
    HERE AND SPENDING THE REST OF MY
    YEARS HERE.
    BUT ANYTIME YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO
    DO WITH THE CITY, YOU KNOW,
    THEY'LL DIG YOUR GRAVE UP IF
    THEY WANT THAT LAND.
    IT'S COST ME IN MY LIFE, FOR
    BEING OUTSPOKEN.
    BUT IF I THINK SOMEBODY IS BEING
    TREATED WRONG, I SPEAK UP.
    IT'S JUST THE WAY I AM.
    IT'S LIKE ONE GUY TOLD ME ONE
    TIME, I LIKE A GOOD LICKING ONCE
    IN A WHILE.
    I SAID, WHY?
    HE SAID IT FEELS SO GOOD WHEN
    THEY QUIT.
    >> Andrew: IN THE END, 183 HOMES
    WERE REMOVED OR DESTROYED.
    MORE THAN 400 PEOPLE FORCED OUT.
    AND THE LAND STILL SITS VACANT.
    AS FOR SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT
    YOU JUST MET, RUDY PREDIGER DID
    FIND A NEW PLACE TO LIVE.
    ANOTHER MOBILE HOME PARK JUST ON
    THE OUTSKIRTS OF CALGARY.

    PLUS-SIZE CLOTHING, YOU WANT
    SOMETHING STYLISH AND AFFORDABLE
    AND INCREASINGLY MAJOR STORES
    ARE CATCHING ON.
    AND TO AN EXTENT WE HAVEN'T
    REALLY SEEN BEFORE.
    IN DEANA SUMANAC-JOHNSON, IN
    FASHION, PLUS SIZE MIGHT BE THE
    NEW BLACK.
    >> Reporter: DANIELLE LOMBARDI
    AND SARAH DEMELIO HAVE ALWAYS
    LOVED FASHION, BUT HAVE FELT
    THAT THE INDUSTRY DOESN'T LOVE
    THEM BACK.
    >> I HAD TO MAKE MY DRESS.
    PROM DRESSES DIDN'T FIT ME.
    >> THE THINGS OUT THERE IN OUR
    SIZES ARE VERY LOW QUALITY.
    >> Reporter: LOMBARDI AND
    DEMELIO ARE AMONG 1/3 OF WOMEN
    IN CANADA AND 16 MILLION IN
    NORTH AMERICA THAT NEED
    PLUS-SIZE CLOTHING
    THE MANTRA ALWAYS BEEN, SMALLER
    THE BETTER.
    >> THERE'S NOTHING IN THIS WHOLE
    CLOSET THAT CAN FIT A SIZE 6, I
    GUARANTEE YOU.
    >> Reporter: NOW IT LOOKS LIKE
    THEIR FASHION FORTUNES ARE
    CHANGING.
    MAINSTREAM RETAILERS ARE GETTING
    THE MESSAGE.
    WOMEN ABOVE SIZE 14 DON'T WANT
    TO SHOP AT SPECIALTY STORES
    ONLY, SOMETHING CANADIAN
    ALEXANDRA WALTMAN FIGURED OUT A
    LONG TIME AGO.
    >> SEPARATING SOME WOMEN IN
    ACCESS AND STYLE AND QUALITY HAS
    GOT TO STOP.
    >> Reporter: WHEN J. CREW
    DECIDED TO EXTEND ITS SIZE
    RANGE, IT TURNED TO WALDMAN FOR
    EXPERTISE.
    THE COMPANY SHE CO-FOUNDED
    CARRIES SIZES 6-32, WITH THE
    FOCUS ON THE LATEST TRENDS AND
    HIGHEST QUALITY.
    THE NEW SELECTION HAS 37 PIECES
    IN SIZES UP TO 5X.
    >> THEY WANTED TO CREATE A NEW
    WAY FOR ALL WOMEN TO SHOP, WHICH
    WAS MORE INCLUSIVE AND DIVERSE
    IN TERMS OF SIZE.
    WE'RE NOT A PLUS SIZE BRAND.
    WE'RE A BRAND OF APPAREL FOR
    WOMEN AND I REALLY STRONGLY
    BELIEVE THAT THAT'S THE FUTURE.
    >> Reporter: THERE'S GOOD
    INDICATION THERE IS.
    LIKE J. CREW, MANY OTHER FASHION
    BRANDS ARE GOING SIZE INCLUSIVE.
    YOU CAN SEE IT IN THEIR
    CATALOGUES, WHERE MODELS OF
    SMALLER AND BIGGER FRAMES ARE
    SIDE BY SIDE.
    >> IT'S DEGRADING.
    YOU GUYS CAN STAY ON THE MAIN
    FLOOR WITH ALL THE DESIGNERS AND
    LABELS AND I WILL JUST TAKE THE
    ESCALATOR UP TO THE SECTION, THE
    PLUS SECTION.
    >> Reporter: BEHIND THIS SHIFT
    IN THINKING, MONEY.
    PLUS SIZE PURCHASES AMOUNT TO
    CLOSE TO $2 BILLION IN SALES IN
    CANADA EACH YEAR AND MORE THAN
    $20 BILLION IN THE U.S. AND IT'S
    GROWING.
    IT'S SOMETHING BIG RETAILERS CAN
    NO LONGER IGNORE, SAYS FASHION
    BUSINESS ANALYST.
    >> I THINK OPPORTUNITY HAS BEEN
    ONE OF THE MORE IMPORTANT
    DRIVERS.
    >> Reporter: AND HE SAYS THE
    RETAILERS ARE ALSO AWARE OF THE
    CHANGING SET OF VALUES.
    >> I THINK NOW THAT, YOU KNOW,
    WE ALL HAVE VOICES ON SOCIAL
    MEDIA.
    THERE'S AN ABILITY FOR PEOPLE TO
    EXPRESS WHAT THEY THINK AND THE
    DEMAND HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE.
    IT'S NOW JUST A LOT MORE
    EVIDENCE.
    >> Reporter: WOMEN THAT DO
    PLUS-SIZE MODELLING ARE PART OF
    THE CHANGE, PART OF A GROUP WHO
    CALL THEMSELVES THE CANADIAN
    CURVIES AND THEIR FOLLOWERS ARE
    IN THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS.
    WHILE THEY'RE HAPPY WITH THE
    ATTENTION, THEY WILL NOT SETTLE
    FOR JUST ABOUT ANYTHING.
    >> IT'S NOT A MATTER OF CUTTING
    IT AND SAY, IT WILL FIT YOU
    BECAUSE IT'S THREE TIMES BIGGER,
    NO.
    >> Reporter: RETAILERS WILL FACE
    SOME TOUGH CHALLENGES.
    >> IT'S MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE TO
    MAKE A DRESS THAT'S A SIZE 32
    BECAUSE IT'S FIVE TIMES THE
    MATERIAL THAT A ZERO IS, BUT THE
    PRICE TO THE CONSUMER HAS TO BE
    THE SAME.

    LEARNING CURVE FOR THE FASHION

    SHOWING THE WORLD IT'S NOT JUST
    AMERICANS THAT HAS TALENT.
    >> MY NAME IS JEFFREY LI.
    I'M 13 YEARS OLD.
    >> Andrew: HE SAID HE KNOWS WHAT
    HE WOULD DO WITH THE
    MILLION-DOLLAR PRIZE IF HE WINS.
    >> I'M AN ONLY CHILD, SO I WOULD
    LOVE A COMPANION, SO I GUESS A
    DOG.
    >> Andrew: NO PRESSURE.
    JEFFREY DID GET A SMALL WIN, A
    PROMISE FROM MOGUL AND JUDGE,
    SIMON COWELL.
    >> IF YOU DO WELL, I'M GOING TO
    BUY YOU A DOG.
    (*)
    >> Andrew: JEFFREY'S RENDITION
    OF JOSH GROBAN'S "YOU RAISE ME
    UP" WON THE CROWD OVER.
    (*)
    AND EARNED HIM A SPOT IN THE
    NEXT ROUND OF COMPETITION, YES,
    PLUS, A FURRY FRIEND.
    >> NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE FOUR
    YESES, YOU JUST GOT A NEW DOG.
    >> Andrew: HE CAN'T SAY WHAT
    HAPPENED IN ROUND TWO OR HOW FAR
    HE GOT IN THE COMPETITION
    BECAUSE IT HASN'T AIRED YET, BUT
    FOR NOW, HE'S STILL WAITING FOR
    THAT NEW DOG.
    >> AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S NO
    BARKING AROUND HERE.
    (*)
    >> Andrew: IN THE WAKE OF
    TRAGEDY, PEOPLE LOOK FOR WAYS
    THEY CAN HELP.
    WE'VE SEEN IT WITH THE DANFORTH
    SHOOTING THE NEXT WEEK, BUT ALSO
    AFTER THE HUMBOLDT BRONCOS BUS
    CRASH.
    THAT'S WHEN A BUSINESS OWNER
    MADE T-SHIRTS WITH A SIMPLE
    IMAGE, "WE ARE HUMBOLDT STRONG."
    NOW HE HAS A CHEQUE TO PRESENT
    AND THAT'S OUR "MOMENT OF THE
    DAY."
    >> WHEN WE DECIDED TO LAUNCH THE
    CAMPAIGN, WE THOUGHT WE WOULD
    PRINT JUST A FEW HUNDRED SHIRTS.
    >> OVER THE COURSE OF THE FIRST
    THREE WEEKS OF APRIL, WE WERE
    SELLING THOUSANDS OF T-SHIRTS
    ON-LINE.
    >> WE HAVE SHIPPED TO EVERY
    PROVINCE IN CANADA, ALMOST EVERY
    STATE IN THE UNITED STATES,
    OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE DUBAI,
    FINLAND, SWITZERLAND, GERMANY,
    AND SO MANY MORE.
    >> WE KNOW THE T-SHIRT MEANS A
    LOT TO PEOPLE OUT THERE.
    IT'S A WAY TO HONOUR THE
    VICTIMS.
    SO AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE
    HAVE A CHEQUE FOR $304,239.90 TO
    THE HUMBOLDT STRONG COMMUNITY
    FOUNDATION.
    >> Andrew: $300,000, SO THAT'S
    DONATING $20 ON EVERY $25 SHIRT.
    YOU DO THE MATH, THAT'S A LOT OF
    SHIRTS.
    THAT'S "THE NATIONAL" FOR THIS
    JULY 27.
    HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.

    1. My mum had small cell terminal lung cancer. She lost her hair while going through chemo and it was devastated. She has recently finished her radiotherapy and she was losing her hair again :( mum wanted me to shave it off again as it's coming out in clumps.i know she was very upset and have told her to be confident it'll grow back but she's so upset, life became hell for me, because i just cant imagine my mum this way. i actually posted this online, and somebody replied me, that he knows once who can cure my mum, without spending much money and without taking anytime anymore, and there wont be any hair loss anymore. I said okay and i want to give it a try, the person that helped him (the person that i was referred to) is Dr Covenant, his email is covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com, he gave me his email address and i contacted him and told him everything, he (Dr Covenant) said i should not worry everything'll be okay in space of 8 days, i actually gave him a try.
      It was not up to the 3rd day, i started noticing changes in my mum. Now my mum is healthy back and the cancer is gone. Am so grateful about this. I actually thought that my mum was going to die, but now she is still alive. Friends, if you have any problem such as cancer, or other illness like HIV/AIDS, GONORRHEA, or any other illness at all, and he is also specialized in getting ex back contact Dr Covenant on his email covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com or add him on watsapp on +2349057353987 or call him directly on +2348146671563. you can also go through his website if interested http://covenantspelltemple.blogspot.com.
