OTTAWA — With COVID-19 cases creeping up in several parts of the country, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will address the nation Wednesday night, warning of the urgency in preventing a second wave. Broadcasters have been asked for airtime for the address, which is expected to come at around 6:30 p.m. Eastern time. A spokesperson from the prime minister said the address will speak to the need to take the virus seriously. “The Prime Minister will address Canadians directly on the urgency of fighting COVID 19, as we face down the prospect of a second wave of the virus,” reads the statement. “He will also give a summary of the government’s plans in the Throne Speech to fight the virus and build our economic recovery.” After proroguing parliament for weeks, Trudeau is set to reveal a new legislative agenda in a throne speech set for Wednesday afternoon, which will then be reinforced with his address later that evening.

Red Deer Anti-Racism Rally Interrupted By Hate Groups, RCMP Investigating
A scheduled anti-racism rally in central Alberta turned violent this weekend, after members of far-right hate groups disrupted it. The event was one of several peaceful conversations across central Alberta towns and cities in recent months about anti-racism and justice.But the conversation in Red Deer never even got started Sunday.Video from the event showed people wearing logos of far-right hate groups disrupting the event, chanting slogans including “all lives matter” and instigating physical scuffles with attendees. Red Deer, AB"Patriots" came in truck loads to attack people who came to attend an organized event on anti-racism.Here's my bf getting punched in the head after serving Pat King a restraining order.

According to the Red Deer Advocate, nine police cars and around 15 officers were on the scene. Kisha Daniels, one of the event’s scheduled speakers, told CityTV that despite being present, police stood by as violence broke out. “This was a peaceful event that these people crashed and the RCMP allowed the violence to happen,” she said. RELATED Man Charged With Murder As Red Deer Mourns Doctor Killed In Attack Here’s What It’s Like To Organize Against Racism In Alberta’s Heartland My Hometown Is The Epicentre Of Wexit. I Went Back To Find Out Why On Monday, Red Deer RCMP confirmed that no charges were laid following the event and no further investigation was planned. Alberta Justice Minister Kaycee Madu confirmed during a press conference Tuesday, however, that RCMP have now opened an investigation.“I am confident that Albertans overwhelmingly reject the behaviour seen this past Sunday,” he said.  Adora Nwofor, a Black woman from Calgary, has participated in anti-racism demonstrations and conversations across rural Alberta. She told the Red Deer Advocate that the violence from the weekend was unfortunately familiar. “I’ve been all over the province,” she said. “It seems like this is elevated from all the other protests I’ve been to … There has been verbal violence and incidents of people pushing.” Last week, an anti-racism demonstrator in the nearby town of Ponoka was struck by a passing car. Organizers of the demonstration allege the collision was a targeted act.“Canada must do better”On Monday and Tuesday, municipal, provincial and federal officials condemned the violence. Red Deer Mayor Tara Veer said in a statement Tuesday, that while the city supports free expression, she is concerned by increased social tensions.“We unequivocally denounce violence and racism,” she said. “The City recognizes that social tensions are extremely high across our country as a result of the pandemic, economy, political polarity, and competing worldviews. However, as a community it is imperative we pull together, and not apart, during adverse times. We cannot allow the actions of a few to characterize our city.”Alberta NDP leader Rachel Notley said politicians must commit to being anti-racist. Recent video footage of racist hate groups in Red Deer, intimidating and threatening anti-racist activists, are disturbing.We, as politicians, and as a society, must act with intention to fight racism and to end racism.

I strongly condemn any threats of violence against people that are participating in peaceful assemblies. Attempts to intimidate, coerce, or attack individuals expressing their Charter rights is an attack on democracy. https://t.co/epxqpEOUOW— Leela Sharon Aheer (@LeelaAheer) September 22, 2020Federal Minister of Families, Children and Social Development Ahmed Hussen said officials in positions of leadership must “do better.”“On issues around racism and discrimination, and I think it’s important to the vast majority of Canadians are now demanding that we do better in positions of leadership,” he told reporters during an unrelated event Tuesday. “Many Canadians, Black, Indigenous and people of colour experience discrimination as a lived reality and for them — Canada has to do better.”

Wendy Mesley a host without a show after CBC’s The Weekly taken off air
CBC’s The Weekly with Wendy Mesley will not return this fall. “With respect to what Wendy will do next at CBC, we’re just discussing that with her now,” CBC’s head of public affairs Chuck Thompson said in a phone interview. Thompson said the decision is unrelated to Mesley’s use controversial language in June. “We had a look at the schedule and the decision was made that The Weekly would not be coming back in the fall.” Mesley used the N-word during an editorial meeting in 2019 while preparing for a segment. Mesley said in an apology on Twitter the word was not used as a slur, but in an attempt to share outrage with anti-Black racism. “I thought by saying the word, I was somehow exposing the truth,” Mesley said on Twitter in June. “I now realize that my abuse of the word was harmful. I hurt my colleagues, my team, and the CBC.” In the apology, Mesley acknowledged she had used the N-word a second time. During a 2019 meeting in Quebec, Mesley mentioned a French book with the English title White [N-words] of North America by Pierre Vallières as its full name. The book argues white francophones are also victims of discrimination. Mesley said she was using the word while quoting a journalist who was being considered for a panel on The Weekly. “Shortly after, my colleague told me that using that word had made people deeply uncomfortable,” Mesley said. “I wish I’d treated that more seriously.” Imani Walker, a Black CBC associate producer, heard Mesley use the word over the phone during the meeting, Walker said in a tweet one day after the apology. “White journalists who think it’s okay to say “n*****” (in any context) speak with an undeniable amount of privilege & power that Black, Indigenous & POC journalists will never have,” Walker said. “Saying “n-word” is sufficient – it’s a term BIPOC journalists use, no matter the context.” Walker added Mesley was only disciplined on June 9 after an internal investigation because there was a Black person on the call, but it is not the first time a white journalist at CBC has used the word. The Weekly covered topics such as finance, the #MeToo movement, trade deals and COVID-19 during the months leading up to the controversy. The Weekly first aired in January 2018 after Mesley established herself as a host on CBC’s consumer advocacy program Marketplace. Mesley later worked as a back-up host for the network’s premier nightly newscast, The National, formerly hosted by her ex-husband Peter Mansbridge. The two were married from 1989 to 1992. Mesley then became the regular Sunday host for the program before taking on The Weekly. In January 2005, Mesley revealed she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. She returned to CBC in March 2006, the same time that her documentary Chasing the Cancer Answer was released.

COVID cancels Christmas: Toronto forced to go without much-loved seasonal market
COVID has cancelled work, classes, and festivals all over Toronto – and now it’s cancelled Christmas. Well, not exactly. But Mayor John Tory announced yesterday that the Toronto Christmas market won’t take place this year in the wake of the increasing number of coronavirus infections across the city. Tory told reporters that the cancellation was disappointing, but necessary. “It is one of a number of events at that time of the year that is unfortunately not going to be held,” Tory said. “It’s regrettable, extremely regrettable, because these are things that bring people joy and get them outside even in the colder weather, but a lot of things have changed this year.” The beloved annual tradition has drawn locals and tourists alike to the city’s historic Distillery District with its iconic 50-foot Christmas tree, seasonal treats like mulled cider and marzipan-filled cookies, and performances from local artists. This year would have marked the 11th year of the festival, which organizers say pulls in about 700,000 revellers each year over its six-week run. Organizers note that the restaurants, galleries, and stores in the Distillery District will remain open. “Guests will enjoy starry light canopies, a grand Christmas Tree in Trinity Square and festive music as part of a charming ‘Winter Village’ experience, which will extend from early November until the end of March,” organizers said in statement. “Throughout, we remain committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment in compliance with provincial health regulations.” The Christmas Market now joins the ranks of the Caribbean Carnival (formerly known as Caribana), Nuit Blanche , Pride , and the CNE as yet another iconic Toronto event cancelled for safety reasons.
