Here & Now Tuesday, October 22, 2019


>>Announcer: THIS IS CBC “HERE & NOW.” (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING FAITH IN US.>>CONSERVATIVES HAVE PUT JUSTIN TRUDEAU ON NOTICE.>>THERE’S THINGS THAT WE HAVE AS PRIORITIES AND WE HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING.>>I’M VERY HAPPY THAT THEY PUT THEIR CONFIDENCE IN ME.>>I’M LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES INTO THE JOB AND ALREADY I HAVE TO PUT IN A NEW WHARF.>>THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN AND JACK IS A GOOD GUY AND HE’LL BE A GOOD M.P.>>Carolyn: JUSTIN TRUDEAU GETS A SECOND CHANCE TO GOVERN THE COUNTRY BUT WITH FEWER SEATS AND ON A TIGHTER LEASH. THE CONSERVATIVES SEE A SURGE IN POPULAR SUPPORT AND HERE AT HOME ONE OF THE SEVEN SEATS GOES TO THE N.D.P. HOW WOULD THIS PROVINCE WORK WITH A FEDERAL LIBERAL MINORITY GOVERNMENT?>>>GOOD EVENING, AND WELCOME TO “HERE & NOW.” I’M CAROLYN STOKES.>>>THAT’S WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT TONIGHT, THE AFTERMATH OF LAST NIGHT’S ELECTION RESULTS. AND OUR PROVINCE’S RELATIONSHIP WITH OTTAWA. WE’LL BEGIN WITH THE RESULTS. THE LIBERALS WITH 157 SEATS, AND THE CONSERVATIVES HAVE 121, AND THE BLOC QUÉBÉCOIS WILL BE THE THIRD PARTY IN THE COMMONS AND HAS REGAINED OFFICIAL PARTY STATUS WITH 32 SEATS. THE NEW DEMOCRATS ARE NOW FOURTH WITH 24 SEATS. AND THE GREENS GROW TO THREE. AND THERE WILL BE ONE INDEPENDENT, FORMER LIBERAL CABINET MINISTER JODY WILSON-RAYBOULD.>>>WELL, ON THE LOCAL FRONT, VETERAN POLITICIAN JACK HARRIS WILL BE HEADING BACK TO OTTAWA. HE WON 47% OF THE VOTE FOR THE N.D.P. SOLIDLY BEATING LIBERAL NICK WHALEN. “HERE & NOW’S” PETER COWAN TAKES A LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED.>>Reporter: MEET THE NEW M.P. FOR ST. JOHN’S EAST, HE LOOKS A LOT LIKE THE OLD ONE. AFTER FOUR YEARS OUT OF OFFICE, JACK IS BACK.>>I’M VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS, BECAUSE WE HAVE HAD A GREAT ELECTION.>>Reporter: THIS WAS A REMATCH IN 2015 WHEN NICK WHALEN WAS A WINNER BUT FOUR YEARS LATER A LOT HAS CHANGED.>>ST. JOHN’S EAST RESPONDED TO A BIG PUSH FOR THE LIBERAL PARTY AND THE LIBERAL VOTE IN ST. JOHN’S SURGED ENORMOUSLY. AND I STILL LOST BY 600 VOTES. SO THIS ELECTION IS A REASON FOR PEOPLE VOTING LIBERAL WERE THERE, AND I DON’T KNOW TO CREDIT IT TO ANYTHING OTHER THAN THAT.>>Reporter: JACK HARRIS GOT ONLY AN EXTRA 800 VOTES THIS TIME BUT HE VOTES TAKEN AWAY FROM THE LIBERALS. THE LIBERALS LOST MORE THAN THE N.D.P. WON BUT NO HARD FEELINGS. WHALEN HAD NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THE MAN WHO BEAT HIM.>>WHEN YOU STAND UP TO THE PLATE AGAINST A GUY LIKE JACK HARRIS, IT’S GOING TO BE TOUGH. YOU HAVE TO DIG YOUR HEELS IN AND YOU’VE GOT TO WORK HARD. THIS GUY IS A GIANT IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR POLITICS AND HIS REPUTATION AND LOYALTY TO HIS COMMUNITY IS IMPECCABLE. AND SO I’M JUST GLAD THAT LAST TIME WE WERE ABLE TO PULL IT OUT IN A MAGICAL CAMPAIGN, AND THIS TIME TO KEEP IT CLOSE AND INTERESTING AND PUT UP THE GOOD FIGHT.>>Reporter: STILL, IT ISN’T EASY TO LOSE.>>WELL, I MEAN, CERTAINLY IT’S A LOT MORE STRESSFUL AS AN INCUMBENT TO RUN, BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO BE FIRED IN FRONT OF THE COUNTRY AND IN FRONT OF THEIR FAMILY AND EVERYONE THEY HAVE EVER KNOWN, SO THAT’S SORT OF TOUGH.>>Reporter: JACK HARRIS MAY HAVE BEATEN A LIBERAL BUT HE’LL NOW HAVE TO WORK WITH THE PARTY. HE’LL LOOK TO THEM TO ADOPT SOME OF THE N.D.P. PLATFORM.>>TO HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING PHARMACARE, UNIVERSAL PHARMACARE PROGRAMME. AND WE HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING A DENTAL PROGRAMME THAT PEOPLE NEED. AND WE HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF MAKING ADVANCES ON OUR PROGRAMME, OR CLIMATE CHANGE.>>Reporter: ONE SIGN THAT THE DIALOGUE HAS BEGUN? JUST AFTER THE RESULTS CAME IN HE GOT A CALL FROM NEIGHBOURING LIBERAL M.P. SEAMUS O’REGAN. PETER COWAN, CBC NEWS, ST. JOHN’S.>>Carolyn: I SPOKE WITH N.D.P.-ELECT JACK HARRIS TODAY AND MY CONVERSATION AHEAD ON “HERE & NOW.”>>>THE FEDERAL LEADERS ARE STILL DIGESTING THE POLL RESULTS AND CONSIDERING WHAT THEY MEAN FOR THEIR JOBS, THEIR PARTIES, AND THEIR FUTURE.>>I AM STAYING AS LEADER OF THE PARTY. WE OBVIOUSLY WISH THAT WE HAD BETTER RESULTS.>>I’M PROUD OF THE WORK WE HAVE DONE AND PROUD OF THE CAMPAIGN THAT WE RAN. THERE IS STILL A STRONG FOUNDATION IN QUÉBEC AND WE’LL BUILD ON THAT. WE’LL NEVER GIVE UP.>>Carolyn: BOTH THE CONSERVATIVE AND THE N.D.P. LEADERS SAY THEY WON’T STEP DOWN, DESPITE THE DISAPPOINTING RESULTS. ANDREW SCHEER AND JAGMEET SINGH SAY THEY’RE FOCUSING ON PROVIDING STRONG OPPOSITION. MOON WHILE, BLOC LEADER YVES-FRANÇOIS BLANCHET MADE CLEAR THAT QUÉBEC IS HIS SOLE FOCUS. BLANCHET TOLD REPORTERS THAT HE HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAKING CANADA WORK. PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU OPTED NOT TO HOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY BUT HE DID GREET COMMUTERS IN MONTRÉAL’S METRO TO THANK THEM. GREEN PARTY LEADER ELIZABETH MAY ALSO REACHED OUT TO THANK HER SUPPORTERS ON TWITTER. WELL, HERE AT HOME THE LIBERAL INCUMBENT YVONNE JONES ONCE AGAIN WON THE SEAT FOR LABRADOR LAST NIGHT. [Applause] CELEBRATING IN HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, SHE THANKED HER SUPPORTERS. BUT WHILE JONES WON BY A DECISIVE MARGIN, SHE ALSO SAW A BIG DROP IN SUPPORT. WINNING JUST OVER 40% OF THE VOTE. AND THAT’S DOWN FROM 75% SUPPORT IN 2015.>>I THINK THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME I FOUND MORE UNDECIDED VOTES AT THE DOORS THAN I FOUND AT PREVIOUS ELECTIONS. I ALSO FOUND THAT LEADERSHIP AND NATIONAL PARTY POLICY PLAYED A BIGGER ROLE IN THIS ECTION THAN I’VE SEEN IN THE PAST. THEY KNOW AT THE END OF THE DAY THAT I’LL FIGHT HARD FOR THEM. AND NO MATTER WHAT THE ISSUE IS, I WILL BE THERE TO STAND UP FOR THEM.>>Carolyn: BUT JONES ALSO STOOD UP FOR HERSELF LAST NIGHT, SAYING THAT THE TONE ON SOCIAL MEDIA HIT AN ALL-TIME LOW DURING THE FEDERAL CAMPAIGN. JONES, WHO HAS INUIT ANCESTRY, SAYS THAT SHE FACED VULGAR, DEFAMATORY AND RACIST REMARKS.>>IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE. I WAS ALSO ACCUSED OF DOING EVERYTHING FROM BRIBING TO TAKING GIFTS. I ALSO NOTICE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE IF THEY EVEN MENTION THAT THEY WERE GOING TO SUPPORT ME, THAT THEY WERE TOTALLY BEAT UP, ABUSED, CHALLENGED, CONSTANTLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA.>>Carolyn: AND IN CENTRAL NEWFOUNDLAND, NO BIG SURPRISE — TWO LIBERAL INCUMBENTS WILL BE RETURNING TO PARLIAMENT. BOTH SCOTT SIMMS AND TURENCE ROGERS WERE RE-ELECTED. AND THEY WON BY SMALLER MARGINS THAN LAST TIME. THE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES JUST ABOUT DOUBLED THEIR PERCENTAGES AT THE POLLS AND THE NEW DEMOCRATS ALSO GOT A BUMP.>>WHAT’S DIFFERENT, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THE PRIME MINISTER, I MEAN, THERE ARE HIGH EXPECTATIONS. BUT THAT’S NOT DISSIMILAR TO ANY OTHER PERSON WHO HAS, YOU KNOW, BEEN RIDING A WAVE COMING INTO POWER AND ALL OF A SUDDEN AS THEY PROCEED THROUGH THE FIRST FOUR YEARS, SOME MISTAKES ARE MADE. BUT YOU’RE MOVING IN A DIRECTION THAT YOU WANT TO AND YOU’LL LOSE SOME OF THAT SUPPORT. THAT’S INEVITABLE.>>Carolyn: AND A SIMILAR STORY IN WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND. THE VOTING PERCENTAGE DROPPED TO FEWER OVERALL VOTES. BUT GUDIE HUTCHINGS AND HER TEAM HAD A LOT TO CELEBRATE IN THE LONG RANGE MOUNTAINS. THE SUPPORTERS STARTED CELEBRATING EVEN BEFORE HUTCHINGS ARRIVED AT THE HOTEL CONFERENCE ROOM SHE HAD RENTED. HUTCHINGS TOLD THE CROWD OF ABOUT 100 PEOPLE THAT SHE’D CONTINUE FIGHTING FOR THEM IN OTTAWA. LONG RANGE MOUNTAINS IS A RIDING THAT SPANS MORE THAN 700 KILOMETRES. HUTCHINGS SAYS IN ORDER TO SERVE EVERYONE SHE TAKES A METHODICAL APPROACH TO MEETINGS.>>WELL, MEETING IN CLUSTERS, IN A CLUSTER YOU WILL HAVE SIMILAR ISSUES. AND HOPEFULLY SIMILAR RESOLVE AS WELL, RIGHT? SO THAT’S WORKED FOR ME BECAUSE WITH OVER 200 COMMUNITIES AND THERE’S ONLY 365 DAYS OF THE YEAR AND HALF OF THAT TIME IN OTTAWA, YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO GET TO EACH AND EVERY ONE.>>Carolyn: NOW THE NUMBER OF VOTES CASTS HELPS TO PAINT A PICTURE FOR THIS PROVINCE AND HERE’S THE BREAKDOWN: 58% OF THE ELIGIBLE VOTERS FROM THIS PROVINCE CAST A BALLOT YESTERDAY. THAT’S A DROP FROM THE 2015 FEDERAL ELECTION WHICH SAW NEARLY 61% TURNOUT. WHICH WAS ALSO A HIGHER TURNOUT THAN IN 2011. NOW HERE’S HOW THOSE VOTES BROKE DOWN BY PARTY. THE LIBERALS GOT THE MOST VOTES AT MORE THAN 107,000. AND THE CONSERVATIVES DIDN’T WIN A SINGLE SEAT IN THIS PROVINCE, BUT THEY GOT THE SECOND HIGHEST NUMBER OF VOTES AT JUST OVER 67,000. AND THE N.D.P. CAME THIRD WITH 57,000. AND THE GREEN PARTY CAME IN FOURTH PLACE, WITH NEARLY 7,500 VOTES. AND THE THREE LESSER KNOWN PARTIES EACH HAD SEVERAL HUNDRED VOTES. SO WHAT DO THE FEDERAL RESULTS MEAN FOR OTTAWA’S POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS PROVINCE? LET’S BRING IN “HERE & NOW’S” MEG ROBERTS. SO, MEG, YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING TO PROVINCIAL PARTY LEADERS TODAY. WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?>>Reporter: WELL, IT’S HARD TO NOT TALK ABOUT WHAT THIS ELECTION MEANS TO NEWFOUNDLANDERS AND LABRADORIANS WITHOUT USING THE WORDS “RATE MITIGATION.” THAT’S THE QUESTION — WILL THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HELP WITH THE COST OF MUSKRAT FALLS? I SPOKE WITH THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION PARTY TODAY CHES CROSBIE WHO IS LESS THAN IMPRESSED WITH LAST NIGHT’S RESULTS. HE BELIEVES THAT NOT MUCH WOULD CHANGE FOR THE PROVINCE AND THINKS THAT THE RESIDENTS WILL CONTINUE TO BE TREATED IN A ROUTINE WAY, WHILE PREMIER DWIGHT BALL SAYS THAT THE WORK HAS BEEN CONTINUING THROUGH THE CAMPAIGN. AND CROSBIE SAYS THAT BIG PROBLEMS LIKE RATE MITIGATION WILL GO UNADDRESSED.>>WE HAVE ONLY THE VAGUEST KIND OF COMMITMENTS FROM ANY OF THE PARTY LEADERS AND IT WAS THE JOB OF THE PREMIER TO MAKE IT A BALLOT BOX ISSUE TO GET CONCRETE COMMITMENTS FROM THOSE PARTIES. OR TO CAMPAIGN AGAINST THEM IF THEY WOULDN’T GIVE THOSE. AND HE PASSED UP THAT OPPORTUNITY.>>I DISAGREE WITH CHES, OF COURSE AND I DISAGREE WITH A LOT OF THINGS THAT CHES WOULD BE SAYING ABOUT RATE MITIGATION. THERE’S NO WAY THAT WE CAN AFFORD A NEARLY 23-CENT KILOWATT HOUR AS A RESULT OF HIS PROJECT. SO THERE’S A WAY TO EITHER RESTRUCTURE FINANCING, AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS A ROLE TO PLAY. AND I THINK THAT ALL LEADERS SHOULD LOOK AT THE DYNAMIC AND THE IMPACT THIS IS HAVING OR POTENTIALLY COULD HAVE ON OUR PROVINCE AND THEY’D ALL AGREE THAT THEY MUST PARTICIPATE IN RATE MITIGATION.>>Reporter: MANY ARE ALSO TALKING ABOUT DIVISIONS, SPECIFICALLY BETWEEN THE VOTERS IN THIS PROVINCE AND ALBERTA. POLITICIANS BOTH FEDERALLY AND PROVINCIALLY SPOKE ABOUT THE NASTY EXCHANGES THEY’RE SEEING ON SOCIAL MEDIA. AND TO FUEL THE LIBERAL VOTERS IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR LET THEM DOWN BY NOT VOTING CONSERVATIVE. HE REACHED OUT TO OTHER LEADERS THIS MORNING IN THE HOPES OF CREATING COOPERATION ACROSS THE COUNTRY.>>THERE IS A WILLINGNESS THAT THERE’S A GREATER ROLE THAT WE CAN PLAY IN MAKING SURE THAT CANADA IS NOT DIVIDED AND THAT WE STAY UNITED. AND I’M CERTAINLY PREPARED AS WELL AS THE SENIOR PREMIERS IN OUR COUNTRY RIGHT NOW TO BE PART OF THAT CONVERSATION.>>Reporter: ALISON COFFIN WOULD LIKE TO SEE COOPERATIONS ON ALL SIDES OF THE GOVERNMENT AND FEELS THAT A MINORITY GOVERNMENT MIGHT BE A GOOD THING FOR THIS PROVINCE. LIVE IN ST. JOHN’S, I’M MEG ROBERTS FOR “HERE & NOW.” (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: A BIT OF A COOL DAY TODAY, BUT A NICE START. WE SAW SUNSHINE EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON AND THE TEMPERATURES SITTING AROUND 4° TO 7° ALONG THE NORTHEAST COAST. WE’VE GOT THOSE COOL TEMPERATURES UP THROUGH LABRADOR AS WELL, AND HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY SITTING AT 4°. AND 9° IN CORNER BROOK AND STEPHENVILLE A HIGH OF 11° TODAY. AND THAT ONSHORE FLOW IS EVIDENT ON THE SATELLITE AND THE RADAR. WE DID SEE SOME DRIZZLE. AND WE’LL CONTINUE TO SEE THAT AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NIGHT TONIGHT AND TOMORROW MORNING IT DOESN’T LOOK ANY DIFFERENT TO START ANYWAY. WE SHOULD BE SITTING IN THOSE SINGLE DIGITS FOR MOST OF US ALONG THE NORTHEAST COAST. 5° FOR PORT AUX BASQUE, AND THEN A COLD NIGHT TONIGHT FOR PARTS OF LABRADOR. -4° FOR HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY. AND NOW OUR NEXT SYSTEM IS ON THE WAY. WE DO HAVE A WRECKHOUSE WARNING IN PLACE. THIS IS FOR TOMORROW AFTERNOON. AND I’LL HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS BECAUSE THERE’S SOME RAIN ON THE WAY AS WELL WHEN I COME BACK.>>Carolyn: THEY’LL SOON ROLL UP THEIR SLEEVES AT A ST. JOHN’S CLINIC. SO, JEREMY, WHAT ARE YOU UP TO TONIGHT?>>Reporter: WELL, WE’RE HANGING OUT AT THE GOLF COURSE BUT THERE’S NO GOLF GOING TONIGHT. AND THE ONLY SHOTS THAT PEOPLE ARE PUTTING IN ARE THE FLU VACCINATION INTO THEIR ARMS. SO I HAVE MY FORM HERE AND MY LITTLE MERMAID STICKER THAT I HAVE ALREADY GOTTEN, THOUGH I HAVEN’T GOTTEN THE SHOT YET WANT BUT WE’LL TALK TO PEOPLE FROM THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT ABOUT FLU VACCINATIONS AND I’M ACTUALLY GOING TO GET MY FLU VACCINATION TONIGHT. SO STAY TUNED, IT SHOULD BE A LOT OF FUN BECAUSE I’M AFRAID OF NEEDLES. CAROLYN?>>Carolyn: THANKS, JEREMY.>>>WELL, A FEW MOMENTS AGO WE SAW THE PREMIER REACTING TO LAST NIGHT’S ELECTION RESULTS, BUT DWIGHT BALL ALSO SPOKE TODAY FOR THE FIRST TIME ABOUT THE MASSIVE SALMON DIE-OFF ON THE SOUTH COAST. 2.6 MILLION SALMON DIED IN CAGES LAST MONTH. AND THE COMPANY FIRST DOWNPLAYED THE NUMBER OF FISH THAT DIED. AND WELL TODAY THE PREMIER SAYS THAT HE DISAGREES THAT HIS GOVERNMENT IS MORE OF AN AQUACULTURE CHEERLEADER THAN AN INDUSTRY REGULATOR. HE SAYS THAT MOHEY WILL GET ITS LICENSES BACK ONCE IT’S PROVEN THAT THE SITES ARE SAFE FOR FISH FARMING. AND HE SAYS THAT THEY NEED TO BE MORE OPEN WITH THE PUBLIC.>>WE HAVE MADE THAT QUITE CLEAR, THAT THE COMPANY NEEDED TO DO A BETTER JOB WITH THE PEOPLE IN THAT AREA, WITH GOVERNMENT. THIS SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED. UNFORTUNATELY, WE KNOW THE CIRCUMSTANCES AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND THIS. WE WILL GET THE REGULATIONS IN PLACE FOR SURE.>>Carolyn: WELL, A LOCAL RUNNER WILL NOT BE APPEALING A SANCTION BY THE CANADIAN ORGANIZATION THAT HANDLED DOPING VIOLATIONS IN SPORT. DAVID FREAK HAS ACCEPTED HIS FOUR-YEAR SUSPENSION AFTER FAILING A DRUG TEST. CBC’S JANELLE KELLY HAS MORE ON THAT STORY.>>Reporter: IT STARTED OUT TO BE A BANNER SEASON FOR DAVID FREAK. HE WON THE TORONTO MARATHON IN MAY. AND HE WAS A REGULAR FOR YEARS AT ONE OF THE TOUGHEST ROAD RACES — THE CAPE TO CABOT. CBC LEARNED LAST WEEK THAT THE CANADIAN CENTRE FOR ETHICS IN SPORTS SUSPENDED HIM FROM COMPETITION FOR FOUR YEARS AFTER HE FAILED A DRUG TEST. FREAK TOLD CBC THAT HE HAD TAKEN ORAL NASAL DECONGESTANTS AND HE DIDN’T KNOW THAT THE MEDICATION WAS BANNED. BUT TODAY THE CCES RELEASED WHAT THEY FOUND IN FREAK’S SYSTEM AND IT DIDN’T COME FROM OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATION. THREE OF THE SUBSTANCES ARE PROHIBITED OR BLACK MARKET DRUGS. AND THERE WERE TRACES OF A FOURTH SUBSTANCE, EPHEDRINE THAT COULD HAVE COME FROM A NASAL DID CONGESTANT. FREAK SAID THAT HE’D APPEAL, BUT THE DEADLINE TO APPEAL WAS SOME TIME LAST WEEK AND FREAK ULTIMATELY WAIVED HIS RIGHT TO APPEAL AND ACCEPTED THE SANCTION. I REACHED OUT TO FREAK THIS AFTERNOON FOR COMMENT BUT HE HASN’T RESPONDED. JANELLE KELLY, CBC NEWS, ST. JOHN’S.>>Carolyn: NOW THE PROVINCE’S ATHLETICS ASSOCIATION GAVE CBC A STATEMENT ABOUT HALF AN HOUR AGO AND IT SAYS THAT THE NLAA IS, QUOTE, “DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED AND EMBARRASSED BY THE SITUATION.” THE GROUP SAYS THAT THEY’RE DISGUSTED AND THAT IT’S UNACCEPTABLE FOR DOPING ATHLETES TO RUN ALONGSIDE LEGENDARY ROLE MODELS LIKE COLIN FEWER. AND THE NLAA ALSO SAYS THAT IT SUPPORTS THE RULING BY THE CANADIAN CENTRE FOR ETHICS IN SPORTS. (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELCOME BACK, EVERYONE. SO WE SAW DRIZZLE TODAY, NOT A WHOLE LOT, BUT WE HAD A NICE STRETCH OF LIKE CRISP, CLEAR FALL WEATHER.>>Ashley: YEAH. SO TODAY IS STARTING OFF PRETTY NICE, CRISP AND CLEAR, BUT, YEAH, THAT DRIZZLE MOVED IN. BUT WE’RE IN FOR A BIT OF A CHANGE WHICH IS GOOD NEWS. SO WE’LL LOOK AT THE CURRENT TEMPERATURES RIGHT NOW. IT WAS A COOL DAY TODAY AND ONLY SITTING AT 5° CURRENTLY, AND CHILLY UP THROUGH LABRADOR AS WELL. 2° IN NAIN AND LAB CITY IS CURRENTLY AT 0°. OTHERWISE THE WARM SPOT IS DOWN ALONG THE SOUTH COAST, 9° IN BURGEO RIGHT NOW. SO THOSE WINDS QUITE BRISK ALONG THE NORTHEAST COAST, 35 km/h SUSTAINED WINDS RIGHT NOW IN TWILLINGATE. 46 FOR BONAVISTA. AND ST. JOHN’S THOSE WINDS NOW OUT OF THE NORTH AT 20 km/h. AND WE’LL STAY BREEZY THROUGH THE NIGHT TONIGHT AND THERE’S THAT ONSHORE FLOW AGAIN WITH THAT SATELLITE/RADAR, THAT DRIZZLE NOT REALLY SHOWING UP. THERE WASN’T A WHOLE LOT OF IT BUT WE DID STILL SEE SOME FOG AND OCCASIONAL DRIZZLE THIS AFTERNOON. REALLY ANYWHERE ALONG THE NORTHEAST COAST. AND SUN PATCHES OR PEEKS OF SUN, RATHER, FOR THE SOUTH AND THE WEST COAST THIS AFTERNOON AS WELL. AND YOU CAN SEE THAT CLOUD COVER STARTING TO RETREAT UP THROUGH LABRADOR. AND THAT IS THE STORY AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NIGHT TONIGHT. THAT CLOUD AND DRIZZLE WILL EVENTUALLY PULL OFFSHORE, BUT THEN MORE CLOUDS WILL MOVE IN TOWARDS THE EARLY MORNING HOURS, ESPECIALLY FOR THE SOUTHWEST AS WE START TO SEE THAT CIRCULATION OF THAT RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE. SO AS FAR AS THAT GOES, THE RAIN AND DRIZZLE REALLY WILL STICK AROUND FOR THE NORTHEAST COAST INTO THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. OTHERWISE, IT SHOULD BE A GENERALLY NICE EVENING TONIGHT. 0° FOR CORNER BROOK. 6° IN PORT aux BASQUES, AND SO IT WILL STAY MILD WITH THE LIGHT WINDS AND THOSE NORTHERLY WINDS STICKING AROUND, 20-40 km/h TONIGHT. AND THEN ST. ANTHONY AT DRIZZLE/FOG AND 1° OVERNIGHT TONIGHT. AND THEN ALONG THE COAST OF LABRADOR, WE SHOULD SEE CLEARING SKIES. -1° FOR CARTWRIGHT AND -4° FOR HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY. AND LAB CITY HOVERING AROUND THE 0° MARK WITH THOSE WINDS OUT OF THE SOUTH/SOUTHEAST, 20-40 km/h. AND THEN TOMORROW, THE NEXT WEATHER MAKER IS MOVING IN. SO WE’RE GOING TO SEE LATE-DAY THAT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND WET SNOW FOR LAB WEST AS WE START TO SEE SOME COOLER AIR MOVE IN. OTHERWISE, LOOKING AT MORE OF — MORE THAN LIKELY CLOUD COVER, BUT SOME MORE PEEKS OF SUN THAN WE SAW TODAY FOR SURE. ESPECIALLY AS WE START TO SEE A LITTLE BIT OF A WIND SHIFT. SO THAT DRIZZLE/FOG SHOULD END BUT THEN WE’LL SEE INCREASING CLOUD THROUGH THE DAY. AND AS THAT SYSTEM MOVES IN, WE DO HAVE THOSE WIND WARNINGS IN PLACE FOR THE SOUTHERN HALF OF — OR AT LEAST THE WRECKHOUSE AREA, WITH GUSTS UPWARDS OF 110 km/h TONIGHT. SO TOMORROW WE SHOULD SEE A COUPLE DEGREES WARMER. THE WINDS OUT OF THE EAST IN THE MORNING AND THEN THEY’LL BE LIGHT INTO THE AFTERNOON FOR MOST OF THE AVALON. SITTING AROUND 9° FOR MOST OF US, GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR. AND THEN TOWARDS THE COAST AGAIN, WINDY CONDITIONS ALONG THE SOUTH COAST AND SOME SUNSHINE FOR STEPHENVILLE AND OCCASIONAL SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE FOR CORNER BROOK. AND THEN UP THROUGH CARTWRIGHT, YOU’RE LOOKING AT SUNSHINE TOMORROW AND 7°. AND THEN HEADING TOWARDS LAB WEST, AGAIN, LATE DAY YOU’LL SEE THAT NEXT SYSTEM MOVE IN. AND THAT RAIN WILL CONTINUE AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY ON THURSDAY FOR MOST OF US AND WE’LL HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS COMING UP.>>Carolyn: WELL, WITH THE WEATHER CHANGING AND THE TEMPERATURES DROPPING, COLD AND FLU SEASON IS NOT FAR BEHIND AND THE PROVINCIAL HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS ARE HOPING TO STAVE OFF THE ILLNESSES BY OFFERING FOLKS A FLU SHOT. “HERE & NOW’S” JEREMY EATON IS AT ONE OF THOSE CLINICS IN ST. JOHN’S. JEREMY?>>Reporter: WELL, YEAH, WE’RE AT THE GOLF COURSE AND IT’S WHERE EASTERN HEALTH HAS OPENED UP ABOUT ONE OF THE 150 FLU SHOT CLINICS SO PEOPLE CAN WALK IN AND GET THE FLU SHOT AND WALK AWAY AND HOPEFULLY NOT GET SICK. AS MANY OF OUR VIEWERS KNOW, I DON’T KNOW A LOT ABOUT FLU SHOTS OR MANY OTHER THINGS, BUT DR. FITZGERALD, SHE DOES. AND SO SHE’LL TELL US WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE. SO VERY LOUD BEHIND US BECAUSE THERE’S A LOT OF YOUNG BOYS AND GIRLS AND A LOT OF MEN AND WOMEN AND EVERYBODY IN BETWEEN GETTING FLU SHOTS. SO WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE TONIGHT, DR. FITZGERALD?>>THIS IS A MASS IMMUNIZATION CLINIC AND SO IT’S OPEN FOR PEOPLE TO DROP IN AND TO GET A FLU SHOT. AND WE RECOMMEND THAT EVERYONE OVER SIX MONTHS GET A FLU SHOT. AND THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO COME TO DO THAT.>>Reporter: THIS IS THE CONVERSATION THAT WE’RE HAVING IN THE OFFICE TODAY WITH CAROLYN AND ASHLEY ABOUT — NOT EVERYONE GETS A FLU SHOT. SO IN YOUR ROLE WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WORKING FOR EASTERN HEALTH, WOULD YOU RECOMMEND AS A MEDICAL DOCTOR PEOPLE DO GET A FLU SHOT YEARLY?>>YES, WE RECOMMEND THAT EVERYBODY OVER THE AGE OF 6 MONTHS GET A FLU SHOT. AND IT’S PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT FOR PREGNANT WOMEN, CHILDREN ESPECIALLY, AND ANYONE OVER THE AGE OF 65 AND ANYONE WITH CHRONIC MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT COULD PUT THEM AT HARM FROM COMPLICATIONS FROM THE FLU. SO THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND THOSE AROUND YOU IS TO GET A FLU SHOT.>>Reporter: GARY LOCK AND I HAVE BEEN HERE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR AND THERE’S BEEN ABOUT 150 PEOPLE COME IN. DOES EASTERN HEALTH HAVE ENOUGH VACCINATIONS THAT MIGHT WANT ONE AT YOUR LOCATIONS AROUND THE AVALON HERE?>>YES, WE CERTAINLY HAVE ENOUGH VACCINE FOR OUR ANTICIPATED NEEDS FOR THIS YEAR. SO ACROSS THE PROVINCE.>>Reporter: SO, OBVIOUSLY EASTERN HEALTH RUNS ONE AND GRENFELL HEALTH AND SO PEOPLE CAN WALK IN AND GET A FLU SHOT. SOMETIMES WITH VACCINATIONS THERE’S SOME MISCONCEPTIONS OUT THERE AND ONE THAT I HAVE READ ABOUT AND HEARD ABOUT IS THAT IF YOU GET A FLU SHOT YOU GET THE FLU. SO COULD YOU DISPEL THAT MYTH AND ANY OTHER MYTHS THAT PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE ABOUT GETTING A FLU SHOT?>>SO THE FLU SHOT WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE FLU. WHAT’S IN THE FLU SHOT IS A WEAKENED OR INACTIVATED FORM OF THE VIRUS. IT STIMULATES OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM SO WHEN WE COME IN CONTACT WITH THE REAL VIRUS WE’RE MORE ABLE TO RESPOND TO IT MORE QUICKLY. SO IT’S THE BEST FORM OF PROTECTION THAT WE HAVE.>>Reporter: NOW YOU AND I WERE CHATTING BEFORE THIS INTERVIEW AND I KNOW THAT SOMETIMES THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS SORT OF LOOK TO THE — TO AUSTRALIA AND OTHER COUNTRIES IN PREVIOUS YEARS TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT IF THE FLU SEASON WILL BE GOOD OR BAD. BASED ON WHAT YOU KNOW, HOW IS THIS FLU SEASON GOING TO SHAPE UP HERE IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR?>>SO BASED ON THAT INFORMATION, IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE AN AVERAGE YEAR. WE’RE EXPECTING IT TO BE AN AVERAGE YEAR. BUT INFLUENZA IS A TRICKY VIRUS, SO IT CAN CHANGE WITHIN A YEAR. SO SOMETIMES THAT MAY NOT BE TRUE. SO WE DO RECOMMEND THAT EVERYBODY GET THEIR FLU SHOT BECAUSE THAT’S YOUR BEST FORM OF PROTECTION. IN CASE I HAVEN’T SAID IT ALREADY.>>Reporter: BEFORE WE WRAP UP, I’M PUTTING YOU ON THE SPOT HERE — DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA ROUGHLY HOW MANY VIALS THAT EASTERN HEALTH COULD HAVE ORDERED FOR THIS PARTICULAR ROUND?>>SO — WELL, LAST NIGHT, FOR EXAMPLE, IN THEIR FLU SHOT CLINIC THEY SAW OVER 1,800 PEOPLE. OR ALL DAY YESTERDAY, AND NOT JUST LAST NIGHT, SORRY. SO WE WOULD HAVE TO ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH FOR ALL OF THOSE 150 CLINICS AND THEN SOME.>>Reporter: WELL, DR. FITZGERALD, I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CHATTING TO US ABOUT THIS. AND NOW WE’LL SEE IT. SO COMING UP LATER ON THE SHOW I’LL GET MY OWN FLU VACCINATION TO SHOW YOU THAT IT’S NOT THAT BAD. SOIP.>>Carolyn: JACK IS BACK. VOTERS HAVE DECIDED TO SEND JACK HARRIS BACK TO OTTAWA AS THE LONE NON-LIBERAL VOICE FOR THIS PROVINCE. WE’LL TALK ABOUT HIS WIN AND SOME OF THE CHALLENGES COMING UP. (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELCOME BACK. JACK HARRIS WILL RETURN TO OTT AS THE ONLY NON-LIBERAL REPRESENTATIVE FROM THIS PROVINCE. I CAUGHT UP WITH HIM. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WIN.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AND IT’S THE RESULT THAT WE WORKED VERY HARD FOR.>>Carolyn: A MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE WIN LAST NIGHT THAN LAST TIME AROUND. WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT THE DIFFERENCE WAS?>>WELL, IT WAS A WHOLE DIFFERENT ELECTION AND THERE WAS A BIG LIBERAL SURGE THE LAST TIME. AND A HUGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE VOTED LIBERAL THAT HADN’T IN THE ELECTION BEFORE. AND, YOU KNOW, THIS TIME THERE WASN’T THE ENTHUSIASM FOR THE LIBERAL VOTERS OR FOR THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED LIBERAL. AND I THINK THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE. WE WORKED VERY HARD AND I THINK THAT EVERYONE WORKED HARD, FRANKLY. AND YOU KNOW, I WANT TO CONGRATULATE THE OTHER CANDIDATES FOR THE HARD WORK THEY DID. AND, YOU KNOW, I GUESS THAT YOU’D CALL IT A SPIRITED CAMPAIGN AND EVERYBODY MADE A CONTRIBUTION.>>Carolyn: BUT, STILL, IT WAS ONLY ST. JOHN’S EAST THAT DID NOT GO RED ONCE AGAIN. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ST. JOHN’S EAST, DO YOU THINK, AND THE REST OF THE RIDING?>>YOU’D HAVE TO ASK A POLITICAL SCIENTIST ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS BUT WE HAD A STRONG HISTORY HERE IN ST. JOHN’S EAST AND GOING BACK IN MY CASE TO 1987 WHEN I FIFTH WON THE RIDING IN A BY-ELECTION. AND THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME THAT I HAVE WON ST. JOHN’S EAST. SO I THINK THAT HISTORY MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT. AND IT’S FUNNY REALLY, IF YOU LOOK AT ST. JOHN’S SOUTH-MOUNT PEARL WE DID WELL THERE AS WELL. AND SO THERE’S SUPPORT FOR THE PARTY. I THINK THAT THE PARTY NEEDS MORE ORGANIZATION ON THE GROUND. WE HAD A VERY STRONG GROUND CAMPAIGN IN ST. JOHNEE EAST, EVEN IN PLACES WHERE WE DIDN’T HAVE A STRONG GROUND CAMPAIGN, WE HAD A SUBSTANTIAL VOTE. SO IT’S A MESSAGE TO THE PARTY AND PARTY SUPPORTERS THAT THERE’S A LOT OF WORK TO DO BEFORE AN ELECTION IS CALLED AND TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE ORGANIZATION READY TO FIELD CANDIDATES THAT CAN ACTUALLY WIN THE SEATS. AND, YOU KNOW, WITH THAT BACKGROUND BEFOREHAND, WITH MAKING SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE READY TO RUN AND TO GETTING THEM ORGANIZED BEFOREHAND AND MAKING SURE THAT THERE’S WORK ON THE GROUND TO DO THAT. NO, WE HAD GOOD CANDIDATES AND THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH OUR CANDIDATES BUT WE DIDN’T HAVE THE ORGANIZATION TO SUPPORT THEM AND PERHAPS, YOU KNOW, SOME MECHANISM OF GETTING THEM BETTER KNOWN BEFOREHAND, AND GETTING A REAL CHANCE OF DOING IT.>>Carolyn: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS NEW POLITICAL LANDSCAPE, THIS MINORITY LIBERAL GOVERNMENT? SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT THIS COULD BE BAD FOR THE PROVINCE THAT OUR PRIORITIES MAY NOT BE AS IMPORTANT IN OTTAWA ANYMORE. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?>>I THINK THAT IT’S A GREAT RESULT, FRANKLY. BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, IN THE MINORITY GOVERNMENT, THE PARTY WHO IS IN POWER HAS TO LISTEN. AND THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE WANT, YOU KNOW. WE DON’T WANT PEOPLE YELLING AT EACH OTHER BUT TO LISTEN. WE WERE PROMISED IN THIS LAST ELECTION, IT WAS THE LAST FIRST PAST THE POST ELECTION. WELL, WHAT DID WE HAVE DURING THIS CAMPAIGN? FINGER POINTING BY THE TWO MAJOR LEADERS AND SAYING DON’T VOTE FOR ANYBODY ELSE, AS IF YOU DON’T VOTE FOR ME YOU’LL GET HIM. WELL, THAT’S NOT DEMOCRACY, REALLY. I SUPPOSE THAT YOU CAN SAY WHAT YOU WANT DURING ELECTION CAMPAIGNS, BUT I DON’T THINK THAT PEOPLE WERE VERY HAPPY WITH THAT. PEOPLE WANT PARTIES TO WORK TOGETHER. THAT’S WHAT PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION WOULD DO AND THAT’S WHAT WE THOUGHT THAT WE WERE PROMISED THE LAST ELECTION. AND WE DIDN’T GET IT. WHAT WE HAVE NOW IS WHAT I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE WANT, IS THE PARTIES TO WORK TOGETHER AND EVERYBODY HAS IDEAS AND THEY MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH THEM ALL BUT THERE COULD BE A WAYS OF WORKING COOPERATIVELY. AND WHY WOULDN’T THAT BE GOOD FOR THE PROVINCE TO HAVE MORE THAN ONE VOICE IN OTTAWA. PEOPLE WHO CAN SPEAK OUT AND PEOPLE WHO CAN CRITICISE AND PEOPLE WHO CAN SAY WHAT THE GOVERNMENT IS DOING THAT IT SHOULDN’T BE DOING OR WHAT IT’S NOT DOING THAT IT SHOULD. AND I HOPE TO BE THAT VOICE IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR. AND I’M PREPARED TO WORK WITH THE PROVINCE AND TO WORK WITH THE OTHER MEMBERS OF NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR AND WORK FOR THE OTHER PARTIES. WE PUT FORTH A VERY STRONG RESPONSE TO PREMIER BALL’S LETTER LAST WEEK, WITH WELL THOUGHT OUT ISSUES AND POSITIONS ON MATTERS. AND WE’RE VERY PROUD OF THAT, AND I’M PREPARED TO BRING THAT TO THE TABLE. YOU KNOW, THE PREMIER IS — I HAD A CALL FROM THE PREMIER TODAY AND I’M VERY HAPPY TO DO THAT, AND I’M VERY HAPPY TO WORK WITH THE PROVINCE IN ANY WAY THAT I CAN, THAT MIGHT HELP — TO HELP THE SITUATION THAT NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR IS IN.>>Carolyn: WHAT ABOUT FOR YOU PERSONALLY NOW? THIS WILL BE A LIFESTYLE CHANGE FOR YOU ONCE AGAIN. I MEAN, YOU HAVE BEEN AROUND THIS BLOCK BEFORE IN OTTAWA, BUT, YOU KNOW, THIS IS A LIFE OF NON-STOP TRAVEL AND ALL BACKED UP POLITICAL LIFE NOW.>>YOU KNOW, I’M DOING THIS BECAUSE I LIKE THE LIFESTYLE SIDE. I DID LIKE THAT, I ENJOYED BEING A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT. AND I WORKED VERY HARD. AND WE’RE IN A DIFFERENT SITUATION NOW AS A FAMILY. OUR CHILDREN ARE ALL FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL. WE HAVE TWO FINISHED, AND ONE DEGREE AT UNIVERSITY AND ONE IS JUST FINISHED FIRST YEAR. SO IT’S A LITTLE LESS FAMILY ORIENTED IN THE SENSE. AND SO I THINK THAT THERE’S OBVIOUSLY AN ADJUSTMENT AND A CHANGE BUT IT’S SOMETHING THAT ANN AND I CAN LOOK FORWARD TO.>>Carolyn: ALL RIGHT, WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH. AND CONGRATULATIONS ONCE AGAIN.>>THANK YOU.>>Carolyn: WELL, THE LIBERALS GOT THE MOST SEATS LAST NIGHT, BUT THE CONSERVATIVES GOT THE MOST VOTES. AND THE BLOC QUÉBÉCOIS MADE A COMEBACK WITH A THIRD MOST SEATS IN PARLIAMENT. AND NOW THE WORK BEGINS FOR JUSTIN TRUDEAU TO GOVERN A FRACTURED COUNTRY. JULIE VAN DUSEN IS IN OUR PARLIAMENTARY BUREAU. SO, JULIE, WHAT HAPPENS NOW?>>Reporter: WELL, IT’S A WHOLE NEW WORLD, CAROLYN. NOW THIS MORNING WE SAW JUSTIN TRUDEAU AT A COMMUTER STOP IN HIS OWN RIDING IN MONTRÉAL, YOU KNOW, THANKING PEOPLE AND SO ON FOR HIS — HE WON HIS RIDING LAST NIGHT AND A MINORITY GOVERNMENT. BUT AT SOME POINT HE’S GOING TO HAVE TO START GOVERNING IN A COLLABORATIVE WAY. AND HE HAS BIG CHALLENGES AHEAD. FIRST OF ALL HE HAS TO DO A CABINET SHUFFLE BECAUSE HE LOST BIG HEAVYWEIGHTS, RALPH GOODALE, LOST HIS SASKATCHEWAN SEAT. AND THE NATURAL RESOURCES MINISTER AMARJEET SOHI LOST HIS EDMONTON SEAT. SO HE HAS NO REPRESENTATION, NO M.P.s IN ALBERTA OR SASKATCHEWAN. HE’LL HAVE TO FIGURE OUT — HE NEEDS SOMEONE TO SIT AT THE CABINET TABLE TO AT LEAST KEEP THEIR EYES AND EARS OUT FOR THE ENERGY SECTOR. AND HE’LL HAVE TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO DO THAT SINCE HE HAS NO M.P.s. AND THEN HE’S ALSO IN THE BIG PICTURE, HE NEEDS A DANCE PARTNER TO GET THEIR LEGISLATION THROUGH. AND THAT MOST LIKELY PERSON TO DO THAT JAGMEET SINGH OF THE N.D.P. AND SINGH HAD A NEWS CONFERENCE TODAY AND HE WAS ASKED IF YOU WOULD BE WORKING WITH TRUDEAU ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS OR KIND OF DEAL WITH HIM. HOW WOULD IT WORK? TAKE A LISTEN.>>EVERYTHING IS ON THE TABLE, WE’RE NOT RULING OUT ANYTHING, BUT WE’RE NOT GOING TO NEGOTIATE THAT HERE. AND WHAT I CAN TELL YOU IS THAT OUR PRIORITIES ARE VERY CLEAR AND WE HAVE LAID THOSE OUT DURING THE CAMPAIGN. WE WANT TO SEE INVESTMENTS IN HEALTH CARE AND WE WANT TO SEE HOUSING MORE AFFORDABLE AND WE WANT TO HELP OUT STUDENTS AND WE WANT REAL ACTION ON CLIMATE JUSTICE.>>Carolyn: OKAY, SO HOW DIVIDED IS THE COUNTRY, CONSIDERING THESE RESULTS?>>Reporter: YEAH, WELL, IT’S VERY INTERESTING. AND ONCE THEY ALL GET BACK IN THE COMMONS WE WILL REALLY SEE IT IN A VISUAL WAY. THE BLOC QUÉBÉCOIS AS PREDICTED WON MANY SEATS IN QUÉBEC. AND THEIR WHOLE THING IS NATIONAL UNITY AND PUSHING A LOT OF QUÉBEC ISSUES AND THEY WON 32 OUT OF THE SEATS. AND IN ALBERTA AND SASKATCHEWAN, AS I MENTIONED IT’S ALL CONSERVATIVE BLUE, AND SCOTT MOE, THE SASKATCHEWAN PREMIER, SAID THAT THIS SHOWS WESTERN ALIENATION IS ALIVE AND WELL. SO THAT’S GOING TO BE SOMETHING TO DEAL WITH. AND IT COULD GET MORE ACUTE, CAROLYN, ON THE WHOLE PIPELINE ISSUE. THE LEFTIST PARTIES IN THE HOUSE ARE ALL AGAINST THE PIPELINE. SO WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE, THAT’S GOING TO BE A REAL ISSUE. NOW ANDREW SCHEER, THE CONSERVATIVE LEADER, SAYS THAT HE GETS THE FRUSTRATION. TAKE A LISTEN…>>WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO ATTACK OUR ENERGY SECTOR, TO KILL BIG PROJECTS THAT GET OUR NATURAL RESOURCES AROUND THE WORLD. AND THAT WE’LL DO EVERYTHING THAT WE CAN TO GET OUR ENERGY SECTOR BACK ON ITS FEET AND TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL CANADIANS UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN WESTERN CANADA SUCCEEDS, ALL CANADIANS SUCCEED.>>Reporter: SO, CAROLYN, TRUDEAU MEETS WITH REPORTERS TOMORROW AND WE MAY GET MORE DETAILS ON HOW HE PLANS TO JUGGLE ALL OF THESE COMPETING INTERESTS IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. AND TO KEEP HIS MINORITY GOVERNMENT ALIVE TO AVOID DEFEAT.>>Carolyn: ALL RIGHT, JULIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH. AND THAT’S OUR SENIOR REPORTER JULIE VAN DUSEN IN OUR PARLIAMENTARY BUREAU IN OTTAWA. (♪♪♪)>>YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES MAYBE — THIS IS A LESSON — THAT YOU’VE GOT TO LEARN THAT IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO DO ENOUGH AND YOU HAVE TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE DONE RIGHT.>>Carolyn: FROM THE HEARTACHE AND THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM LOSS TO THE SWEET TASTE OF VICTORY. WE’LL GIVE YOU A SAMPLING OF WHAT CANDIDATES IN THIS PROVINCE WERE SAYING LAST NIGHT AFTER ALL OF THE BALLOTS WERE COUNTED. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Reporter: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE & NOW.” I’M JEREMY EATON HANGING OUT IN EASTERN HEALTH FLU VACCINATION CLINIC AND I’M GOING TO GET THE FLU SHOT LIVE ON THE TV TONIGHT. AND NICOLE GARRETT, WHO IS A PUBLIC HEALTH NURSE, WILL HELP ME TO DO IT. THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING FOR JABBING ME WITH A NEEDLE, I APPRECIATE IT.>>NO PROBLEM. IT’S FOR A GOOD CAUSE.>>Reporter: IT IS FOR A GOOD CAUSE. SO, NICOLE, PRETEND THAT I’M NOT DOING THIS LIVE ON TV, BUT IF I WAS A REGULAR PERSON WHO WALKED OFF THE STREET AND INTO A WALK-IN CLINIC, WALK ME THROUGH STEP-BY-STEP WHAT WE DO.>>I’D SAY, HI, MY NAME IS NICOLE. HOW ARE YOU, MR. EATON?>>Reporter: I’M DOING A-OKAY, AND YOU CAN CALL ME JEREMY.>>YOU HAD YOUR FLU SHOT IN THE PAST?>>IN LAST COUPLE YEARS.>>AND YOU HAVEN’T HAD A REACTION IN THE PAST?>>Reporter: OTHER THAN A FEW TEARS, NO.>>OKAY, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO CRY TONIGHT, RIGHT?>>Reporter: WE’LL GET TO THAT AND SEE HOW THIS GOES. I’M NOT A BIG FAN OF NEEDLES. NOTHING HAS HAPPENED –>>AND YOU HAVE NO ALLERGIES.>>Reporter: NO.>>AND YOU’RE WELL AND HEALTHY TODAY?>>Reporter: YES, AS WELL AS I CAN GET.>>SO WHAT WE’LL DO IS CLEAN OFF YOUR ARM AND LIKE IN THE PAST WHEN YOU HAD YOUR FLU VAX SEEN BE YOU CAN GET REDNESS OR SWELLING AT THE INJECTION SITE. AND YOU CAN GET A BIT OF A SORE ARM. AND YOU COULD GET SOME BODY ACHES AND YOU COULD GET A FEVER. SO IF YOU GET ANY OF THOSE THINGS YOU CAN TAKE TYLENOL OR ADVIL IF YOU NEED TO. BUT JUST BECAUSE YOU GET THOSE THINGS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU’RE GETTING THE FLU BECAUSE YOU CANNOT GET THE FLU FROM THE FLU SHOT.>>Reporter: AND JUST IN CASE OUR PRODUCER LEE PITTS AND JULIE SKINNER ARE LISTENING, DID YOU HEAR THAT? I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD THE OLD MICROPHONE, SO I MAY TAKE THE DAY OFF.>>WE CAN GIVE YOU A NOTE FOR THAT.>>Reporter: AND WE WILL USE MY RIGHT ARM BECAUSE THAT’S THE CLOSEST ONE TO YOU.>>PERFECT. I’LL JUST CLEAN IT OFF. AND JUST RELAX YOUR ARM. YOU DON’T NEED TO –>>Reporter: I’M NOT — OH, MY GOSH, SHE KNOWS ME WELL.>>ALL RIGHT. SO I’M GOING TO COUNT TO THREE. ONE, TWO, THREE…>>Reporter: THIS WILL MAKE GOOD TV.>>ONE, TWO, THREE, TAKE A BIG NICE DEEP BREATH AND A LITTLE PINCH, DONE.>>Reporter: SO THAT ACTUALLY WASN’T SO BAD.>>AND YOU GET A BAND-AID.>>Reporter: AND IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT I GET?>>YOU CAN GET A STICKER.>>Reporter: PERFECT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND NOW HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU WORKED HERE AT THESE VACCINATION CLINICS?>>THIS IS MY SECOND FLU CLINIC. I STARTED LAST YEAR AT PUBLIC HEALTH. SO LAST YEAR WAS MY FLU CLINIC AND I DID THREE WEEKS AND THIS YEAR FOUR WEEKS OF FLU CLINIC. SO A TOTAL OF 23 FLU CLINICS.>>Reporter: WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO YOU AND WHY DID YOU WANT TO COME BACK FOR A SECOND YEAR TO ADMINISTER THESE FLU VACCINATIONS?>>I ENJOYED GETTING INTO THE PUBLIC LAST YEAR AND TRYING TO BE BEHIND THE INFLUENZA VACCINES. AND THERE’S SOME PEOPLE THAT CANNOT GET FLU VACCINES BECAUSE THEIR BODIES ARE IMMUNO-COMPROMISED OR THEY COULD BE ALLERGIC TO A COMPONENT THAT IS IN THE FLU VACCINE. A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY THAT, YOU KNOW, I DON’T GET SICK, BUT THEY COULD BE A CARRIER OF THE VIRUS AND PASS IT ON TO SOMEBODY WHO CANNOT GET THE VACCINE. AND THEY MIGHT NOT GET SICK THEMSELVES BUT THEY COULD MAKE SOMEBODY ELSE SICK.>>Reporter: SO, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF OLD PEOPLE AND A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE, A LOT OF YOUNGER CHILDREN HERE TONIGHT. A LOT OF OLDER PEOPLE WHAT ABOUT 20-SOMETHING, 30-SOMETHINGS, DO YOU SEE A LOT COME IN THE DOORS?>>LAST YEAR THERE WAS AN INCREASE IN THE AGE GROUP OF 20-44, AND WE ACTUALLY PUT ON EXTRA FLU CLINICS IN FEBRUARY BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED CASES OF CONFIRMED FLU AT THE HOSPITAL. AND YOUNG BABIES BEING ADMITTED AS WELL. SO YOUNG FAMILIES STARTED COMING IN AND GETTING VACCINATED AND THERE WAS A BIGGER UPTAKE WITH THAT. WE FIND THAT 65 AGE GROUP, THEY’RE GOOD, THE SENIORS ARE REALLY GOOD AT COMING IN AND THE YOUNGER AGE GROUP, NOT SO MUCH. BUT WE’RE GETTING A PRETTY GOOD UPTAKE ALREADY.>>Reporter: YOU CAN HEAR THE YOUNGER PEOPLE ABOUT TO GET THEIR FLU SHOTS, NICOLE, AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME AND FOR MY FLU SHOT. SO REPORTING LIVE HERE FROM THE GOLF COURSE IN ST. JOHN’S I’M JEREMY EATON FOR “HERE & NOW.”>>Carolyn: THANK YOU, JEREMY. A GREAT JOB, NO CALLING IN SICK TOMORROW.>>Reporter: NICOLE SAID THAT SHE’D WRITE ME A NOTE, SO WHO IS TO SAY?>>Carolyn: GOODNIGHT. (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: OKAY, NOW BACK TO LAST NIGHT’S ELECTION RESULTS. AFTER THE EXCITEMENT OF THE COMPETITION IS OVER, THEN COME THE SPEECHES, BOTH VICTORY WORDS AND WORDS OF CONCESSION. HERE’S A SAMPLING OF WHAT WE HEARD LAST NIGHT.>>(indiscernible).>>WE NEED TO HAVE WORK OUT IN TWILLINGATE. WE NEED –>>I’M LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES INTO THE JOB AND ALREADY I GOT TO PUT UP A NEW WHARF.>>THEY’VE BEEN TRULY AMAZING AND WE HAVE VOLUNTEERS KNOCKING ON DOORS AND GETTING PEOPLE TO THE POLLS ALL THROUGHOUT THE RIDING. THANK YOU ALL. [Applause] [Cheers and Applause]>>THIS IS A DEMOCRACY AND WHILE SOCIAL MEDIA IS A TOOL, IT CAN BE A TOOL FOR GOOD AND NOT JUST A TOOL FOR NEGATIVITY, FOR BULLYING AND FOR ABUSE.>>WE HAVE DONE SO MUCH TOGETHER AS A COUNTRY IN THE PAST FOUR YEARS, AND, YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES MAYBE THIS IS A LESSON. YOU’VE GOT TO LEARN THAT IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO DO RIGHT. YOU HAVE TO CONNECT EMOTIONALLY WITH PEOPLE AND CONVINCE THEM THAT YOU’VE DONE RIGHT.>>I’M VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE WE HAVE HAD A GREAT ELECTION WITH A GREAT PLATFORM. AND WE’VE OFFERED HOPE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, LEADERSHIP. [Applause] LEADERSHIP ON CONCRETE ACTION, ON CLIMATE CHANGE, AND A COMMITMENT TO WORK WITH THEM AND ON THEIR BEHALF TO SAVE THE FUTURE. (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: HERE’S A LIVE LOOK OUTSIDE AND THAT WILL CONTINUE AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF TOMORROW, BUT WE’LL LIKELY SEE SUNSHINE IN THE MIX BUT WE HAVE THE NEXT WEATHER MAKER MOVING IN. I’LL HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS AND LOOKING AHEAD COMING UP. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELCOME BACK, EVERYONE. WELL, JUST BEFORE THE BREAK WE HAD A LOOK AT ST. JOHN’S AND A BIT DRIZZLY RIGHT NOW AND NOT SO NICE. IS THAT GOING TO STICK AROUND?>>Ashley: FOR THE MOST PART INTO TOMORROW. BUT I’M ANTICIPATING THAT WE’LL SEE MORE SUNSHINE THAN TODAY. SO JUST A QUICK LOOK AT THE FORECAST FOR TOMORROW, 9° IN ST. JOHN’S, AGAIN, THOSE WINDS OUT OF THE EAST IN THE MORNING AND THEN THEY SHOULD EASE THROUGH THE DAY. BUT THOSE WINDS ARE REALLY GOING TO RAMP UP DOWN FOR THE SOUTHWEST WHERE THAT WRECKHOUSE WARNING IS IN EFFECT, AND GUSTS UPWARDS OF 110 km/h. BUT THAT WON’T HAPPEN UNTIL THE OVERNIGHT. BUT THOSE WINDS IN THE AFTERNOON WILL BE STRONG AS WELL. AND THEN UP THROUGH LABRADOR, LIKELY MORE CLOUD COVER FOR HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, AND 8°. YOU’LL SEE THAT RAIN MOVE IN LATE DAY. AND THEN WE DO HAVE THAT SNOW ON TAP FOR LAB CITY. THAT WILL HAPPEN LATER ON IN THE DAY. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT THAT SYSTEM AND WE’LL SEE THAT HEAD TOWARDS LABRADOR THROUGH THE DAY, BUT WE WON’T SEE THAT SNOW OR WET SNOW LIKELY MOVE IN UNTIL THE OVERNIGHT AS THOSE TEMPERATURES DROP. BUT THAT RAIN WILL MAKE ITS WAY TOWARDS THE ISLAND AS WELL AND YOU’RE LOOKING AT THOSE WINDS RAMPING UP, LIKE I SAID, COMING UP OVERNIGHT. AND THE SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH. AND RIGHT NOW IT’S LOOKING 10-20 mm OF RAIN, MAYBELY FOR RR THE SOUTHWEST AND LESS AMOUNTS ACROSS THE ISLAND. AS OF NOW MAYBE 5-10 mm AT THE MOST, BUT, AGAIN, WE DO HAVE A COUPLE DAYS TO FIGURE THAT OUT. IT’S GOING TO STAY UNSETTLED THROUGH THURSDAY FOR MOST OF LABRADOR. WITH SOME CLOUD COVER. AND THEN A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND FLURRIES WILL CONTINUE, ESSENTIALLY INTO FRIDAY. IT’S GOING TO STAY UNSETTLED FOR MOST OF THE ISLAND AS WELL AS WE SEE SOME CLOUD COVER AND SOME PEEKS OF SUN AND THEN SHOWER ACTIVITY AGAIN STICKING AROUND THROUGH THURSDAY. AND EVEN INTO SATURDAY AS WELL. AND SO THE TEMPERATURES WILL BUMP UP A LITTLE BIT WITH THAT SYSTEM AS WELL AND WE’LL SIT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 10° TO 12° THROUGH THE DAY AND COOLER UP THROUGH ST. ANTHONY AND 6° FOR NAIN, WITH SHOWERS AND 6° FOR LAB CITY. BUT WITH THAT RISK OF FLURRIES. AND THAT WILL BE LATER ON IN THE DAY. 11°, IT LOOKS LIKE FOR PORT AUX BASQUE. SO OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS WE’LL SEE A DROP IN THE TEMPERATURES FOR THE REST OF THE WEEKEND AND IT WILL LOOK LIKE 8° TO 5° ON SUNDAY. SO IF DO YOU HAVE SOME HOUSEWORK TO DO AT LEAST YOU DON’T HAVE TO FEEL GUILTY LIKE I DO. AND THEN FOR PARTS OF CENTRAL, YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THOSE TEMPERATURES DIP AS WELL, PROBABLY GOING TO SEE A LITTLE BIT MORE SUNSHINE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. AND THE TEMPERATURES DIPPING INTO THE MINUS SINGLE DIGITS IT LOOKS LIKE BY THE TIME THAT WE HIT THE WEEKEND AND THE SAME THING FOR WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND. MORE SUNSHINE ON SUNDAY. YOU’LL SEE THOSE CLEARING SKIES AS EVERYBODY ELSE STARTS TO SEE THAT RAIN. AND THEN FOR EASTERN LABRADOR, 8° FOR THE NEAR FUTURE. AND THEN AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE WEEKEND, THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE DIPPING INTO THE SINGLE DIGITS, OR MID-SINGLE DIGITS. ON SUNDAY IT LOOKS NICE WITH SUNSHINE. AND THEN FOR WESTERN LABRADOR, PRETTY MUCH HAVE SNOW IN THE FORECAST RIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. BUT IT DOES LOOK LIKE WE’LL SEE MORE SUNSHINE IN PLAY CERTAINLY FOR THE WEEKEND. BUT YOUR TEMPERATURES WILL BE HOVERING AROUND THE 0° MARK.>>Carolyn: THANKS, ASHLEY. WELL, IN INTERNATIONAL NEWS, THE ENTHRONEMENT CEREMONY FOR THE JAPANESE EMPEROR TOOK PLACE TODAY AT THE IMPERIAL PALACE IN TOKYO. (♪♪♪) THE WORD THERE MEANS “10,000 YEARS” WHICH CALLS FOR A LONG REIGN FOR THE EMPEROR. THIS WAS HELD AT THE HALL OF PINE, THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS PART OF THE PALACE. HE SECEDED HIS FATHER WHO ABDICATED IN MAY, THAT MAKES HIM THE 126th EMPEROR. NEARLY 2,000 GUESTS, INCLUDING FOREIGN ROYALS AND DIGNITARIES WERE INVITED TO MARK THE OCCASION. AS A SYMBOLIC GESTURE, JAPAN’S GOVERNMENT ALSO PARDONED ABOUT 550,000 PEOPLE CONVICTED OF PETTY CRIMES. (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: TAKING A LITTLE BIT OF A BREAK FROM THE FALL COLOURS, THOUGH YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THEM SPREAD AROUND THERE. I’LL TELL YOU WHERE THIS WAS TO, OR WHERE THIS IS TO, RATHER, WHEN WE COME BACK AFTER THE BREAK. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: WELCOME BACK. WELL, IT MIGHT BE AUTUMN BUT IT TURNS OUT THAT IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO FLY A KITE.>>Carolyn: AND THEY FLOATED OVER MALTA THIS WEEKEND AT THE INTERNATIONAL KITE FESTIVAL. FROM SPOTTED FISH TO SANTA CLAUS, THOUSANDS ATTENDED THIS EVENT AND THEY ATTEND EVERY YEAR. THERE ARE PRIZES FOR MOST ORIGINAL AND BEST HANDMADE KITE.>>Ashley: YEAH, HERE’S A FUN FACT THAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW — KITE FLYING MIGHT BE ONE OF THE OLDEST SPORTS IN THE WORLD. IT’S 3,000 YEARS OLD.>>Carolyn: WOW.>>Ashley: I DIDN’T KNOW THAT.>>Carolyn: I DIDN’T KNOW THAT EITHER. VERY OLD.>>Ashley: WELL, I GUESS THAT WIND –>>Carolyn: NOW WE KNOW.>>Ashley: LET’S LOOK AT THE BEAUTIFUL WEATHER PHOTO THAT WE HAD FOR YOU TODAY. YOU KIND OF GOT IT — WHAT IT WAS –>>Carolyn: I WAS WONDERING IS THAT MIST FROM A WATERFALL AND IT IS.>>Ashley: IT IS. AND IT IS SPROUT BROOK FALLS ON ROON COUNTER LAKE AND ANDREW BAKER SENT US THAT PHOTO. SO THANK YOU FOR SENDING IT IN AND IF YOU ANY PHOTOS SEND TO [email protected]>>Carolyn: I’D LOVE TO VISIT SOMETIME.
