case, the province continues to be crushed by the pandemic today, marking another brutal milestone: a record 17 people were admitted to the ICU in In the last 24 hours, there are now 106 Manitobans with greed in the ICU, including 32 who are being treated outside the province.
Manitoba's ICU has seen almost five times as many coveted patients in May as it did in April. Public health officials have always said vaccines are the key. to end the pandemic, but some parts of Manitoba are still seeing a lot of reluctance, even when people show up sick. Austin Gravis discusses why, undeterred by public health measures prohibiting indoor religious services, these parishioners gathered this morning as their pastor spoke out against coveted restrictions they never thought of. we would get to times like these in Canada, some here still believe covid is a hoax, even after contracting it, there have been some patients who, even at death's door and on their death beds, deny it.
Dr. Ganesan Abu works at Winkler City Hospital. the facility has had so many coveted patients on ventilators that it has experienced an oxygen shortage. There is this idea that we are somehow colluding with the conspiracy that this virus is not real. The community composition is self-sufficient and believes that the less involvement it has with the government, the better off it will be. Manitoba's vaccination rate is almost 65 per cent, but only a quarter of people in Winkler have received a vaccine. It is even lower in the rural municipality of Stanley, at 13 per cent, as the ICU crisis intensifies.
Military laboratory Taxes have begun deploying their ambulance services and the military continues to carry critically ill patients out of the province. This doctor is one of the few who asked the government to impose a stay-at-home order this week. She is critical of the way things got to this point with the kind of second wave that we had and this delayed start, as you point out of the third wave, how could we have delayed action? Manitoba has significantly increased its weekday vaccinations, but now there's another hurdle the province won't clear. its goal of getting first doses to at least 70 per cent of the population by June 9 officials say the reason is another shortage of modern doses combined with lower demand austin gravis cbc news winnipeg a new cluster of 11 cases coveted in western youth lands and Labrador and today the province announced stricter public health measures for the affected region.
Now we have to ask them to really continue with that household bubble in this area and really all we're doing when we do that is keeping contacts low and not allowing. The virus spreads from person to person. Communities in the Stephenville area and on the Port Harbor Peninsula have moved to alert level four. Limit gatherings to homes and suspend indoor dining and gyms, among other restrictions. People asked to stay home except to get food and medicine Ontario received permission this weekend from Health Canada to extend the expiration date of tens of thousands of doses of the Astrazeneca vaccine, a decision the minister federal health defended today.
They are considered reference regulators in the world. They are very, very thorough and I. They have full confidence that the regulatory team will do their due diligence. They have not hesitated to retain, for example, a product that does not meet their requirements. The doses were set to expire Tuesday, but Ontario can now use them until the first well in July. Let's bring in Dr. Lenora Saxsinger, an infectious disease specialist in Edmonton, and first of all, what's changed here, Dr. Sachsinger, how could the vaccines that we thought were going to expire tomorrow actually be good for another 30 days, although it looks like an 11th day? time change, my understanding is that Health Canada actually obtained updated stability data on Thursday the 27th that was sent by Astrazeneca and in fact confirmed that those batches are basically unchanged in terms of quality and content over the time period, so I think we should expect that.
This could happen again because with updated data they could extend some deadlines and allow us to use up available stock which is a good thing, based on what you have seen, are you concerned about the increased health risk? this extension, oh, not at all, because if there was any suggestion that the product had changed in any way, they wouldn't actually have given an extended expiration date and this is something that I think has also happened with other vaccines and products because it's a new product and they're going to continue to do stability testing on some of the batches that you know of as they go, so I think we'll see this kind of potential change with other vaccines over time, too, very good, dr. sac singer thank you, thank you Across Canada, a combination of restrictions and vaccines has been effective in beating back the third wave, but the fight is not over a year ago, Canada had just emerged from its first wave of covid with an average of More than 800 daily cases now, even with the third wave receding, the country is still averaging 2,800 new cases daily and stress on hospitals remains high with around a thousand patients covered in the ICU, meaning the effort Vaccination is as important as ever,Fifty-six percent of Canadians. the population has received at least one dose the population fully vaccinated with two doses is still only five percent, but throughout the country there are reopening plans and Tally Richie shows us in some provinces that change is already underway lately the days sunny they feel much brighter.
It's good that at least it's nice outside and the restrictions are finally lifting and that just means you can see more of your family and friends starting today in Saskatchewan. Up to 10 people are allowed in private gatherings. Outdoor

Albertans next door are preparing to enter stage one of their plan on Tuesday, when outdoor patio dining with four people from the same household can resume and restrictions will be eased around retail services and worship this week, scenes of normalcy in British Columbia as indoor dining and outdoor team sports restart.
In Ontario, teens and pre-teens were lining up to receive their first dose as early as they were 12 or older. I really wanted to go out and get the vaccine. I want to make sure that, like everyone else, they live a long time on this beautiful planet. You know, tomorrow those. People 80 and older can begin signing up for their second dose and volunteer drivers are preparing to help. Our phones have been ringing off the hook. Ontario's stay-at-home order is set to expire on Wednesday and more restrictions will be lifted in the coming weeks, but the province has extended its interprovincial travel ban affecting land borders with Manitoba and Quebec until mid-June p-e-i es keep borders closed Also in an interview on Rosemary Barton Live, the Prime Minister defended keeping the quarantine rules in place for travelers from outside of Atlantic Canada until August, it's not a race for us here, it's the only race for us, it's against the pulpit and its variants, and that is the race.

legislation, plus the British Prime Minister is putting pressure on G7 countries to agree on vaccine passports.

trip since the pandemic began with the g7 summit in the uk next month on the agenda to find out how the rest of us we can travel internationally safely and a plan to end the pandemic In an exclusive Canadian interview with our chief political correspondent, Rosemary Barton, Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom lays out what he seeks to achieve as parts of this country and As the world begins to slowly reopen, the prospect of being able to travel again is becoming real. and with it the need for a coordinated approach to international travel.
The G7 countries have been talking about what that would look like and the UK Prime Minister says it needs to be part of the next meeting, so there has to be some kind of agreement in the G7. To start, on the impact that travel has, what we need, I think, is a global treaty on pandemic preparedness, where Justin Trudeau and Boris Johnson are on the same page, but the meeting will also include a discussion about whether all vaccines will be acceptable for travel or only those approved within the g7 beyond passports Johnson also wants leaders to put the world in a better position for future pandemics by improving surveillance and more reliable supply chains for the personal protective equipment they so much is needed.
Greater coordination may also be necessary, Johnson says of standards for closures. and quarantines on a global scale, but before that more must be done to share vaccines with the world. The UK, like Canada, donated to the Kovacs vaccine-sharing initiative, but like Canada, it is being asked to do more and Johnson says all leaders want to move faster. What we want the G7 to try to agree is that instead of vaccinating everyone by 2024 or 2025, which is the current timetable, we should do it before the end of next year. In recent days, Johnson himself has faced harsh accusations from one of his former collaborators for his handling of the pandemic.
The Prime Minister considered this just a scare story. He described it as the new swine flu. More than 152,000 people died in the UK due to greed More than 70 per cent of people there have now been vaccinated with one dose and the country has loosened restrictions Johnson deflects his own criticism by saying all governments faced difficult decisions Around the closures, we did everything we could to minimize casualties, save lives and protect our NHS and you. I know what I think, that's what governments around the world have tried to do, with very few exceptions, the pandemic will clearly be high on the agenda at the G7 meeting Johnson is hosting in less than two weeks.
It is expected to be the first time these leaders have done so. met in person in two years romero barton cbc news ottawa in israel today a political shake-up just weeks after a ceasefire between that country's forces and hamas tonight benjamin netanyahu clings to his role as israeli prime minister steven d' Souza takes us through the political power plays and the possible impact on the future of the country's relationship with the Palestinians. Benjamin Netanyahu has dominated Israeli politics for decades as prime minister over the past 12 years, so the news that his time may be ending is not welcome among his supporters in Jerusalem if he is to leave now.
We will miss him greatly waiting in the wings for Naftali Bennett once he is Netanyahu's chief of staff his shot at the top job comes after four elections in just over two years failed to produce a decisive result the election is now , a fifth between opposing views said on Sunday, Bennett, a right-wing nationalist, agreed to join forces with former TV host turned centrist politician Yara Lapid, they would take turns serving two years each as Israel's prime minister, but Netanyahu keeps painting the broad coalition as if he were calling it leftist. A danger to Israel's security and future There are still many things that can go wrong Experts say don't rule Netanyahu out It's still been 12 years There have been many opportunities along the way where Netanyahu could have lost power each time managed to pass if the coalition is successful Bennett would be the most right-wing politician to lead the country, he supports the annexation of Palestinian territory and is firmly against a two-state solution, although it is not clear if his agenda will go anywhere that we do not .
What is known is how much each party will be able to achieve given that it has coalition partners who are quite ideologically opposed. The coalition could include an Arab-Israeli party for the first time in Israel's history, but Arab voters do not expect much change. I don't see anyone doing anything for the Arabs. This woman tells us that the process of consolidating the coalition could take a week and that in the tumultuous world of Israeli politics it is a lifetime in which anything could happen.

How the government and sports leagues hope to capitalize on the billions of dollars circulating on betting sites outside the country and also, thank you, I appreciate it. A group of volunteers hop on their bikes to help in a time of need. Stay with us. Welcome again. Sports

gambling

is already big business, but the rules for making those bets in this country are rigid for now, but a proposed change in legislation could generate significant tax revenue and even have an impact on Canadian sports leagues.
Jamie Strashen explains that this is what sports betting in Canada looks like in most places where it is purchased. pro line or your sports selection ticket and you make your choices, but to play you must choose several games, better known as parlay, and to win all those games you must be correct, that attracts a lot of people, but the odds are high. They are long, if anyone knows how to pick winners, it's Rob Pizzola. For him, sports betting is a full-time job and he doesn't like the betting options available in Canada and generally doesn't get a fair price for these parlays. so not only do you have to be lucky enough to sequence all this correctly and win thiscombination, but they probably won't even pay you fair value.
Shrewd players like Pizzola or even casual players looking for real options and fair payouts are not. When placing bets in Canada, many Canadians bet through dozens of offshore sportsbooks. I can bet on any game being played anywhere, including who will be the next president of the US. These sites are big businesses usually located in tax havens like Malta or the Isle of Man. the Canadian Gaming Association Chance says Canadians bet $4 billion on these foreign sites each year plus another $10 billion with legal betting operations in Canada those provincial sports lotteries only $500 million banning single-event sports betting is something in which we are all far behind the The rest of the world, including our neighbors to the south, Conservative MP Kevin Wall wants to keep that money in Canada and make it legal.
Bill c 218 and act to modify the penal code. Sports betting will now be read for the third time and the sponsored Saskatchewan politician will be approved. a bill that just passed the house of commons and is in the senate would allow canadians to choose just one winner on those provincial lottery tickets it's hard enough to predict one game, i can't predict two, three and four games from between pro lines, so we are losing that opportunity in this country and everything that we are doing here with this legislation that has come through the House of Commons we are giving people a choice and today people want to be entertained and They would like to bet. professional sports, if you want to know more about anything to do with sports betting, go to Las Vegas, that's where I contacted a lawyer who specializes in the industry, why is single game betting so important with any betting product?
Always thinking about how intuitive this will be for the bed or how intuitive this will be for the consumer, it's something that they will easily understand and then be able to execute, and the reality is that a single game is That product for sports betting in Canada is part of a seismic shift in the sports betting landscape in North America, which is easily visible just by watching a hockey game. Sports betting websites and casinos that were once shunned by professional sports are now welcome to advertise alongside donuts. and soft drinks the nhl really led the way on this they first put a team in las vegas and then they did this today the nhl and mgm are proud to announce that we have entered into a multi-year partnership designating mgm as the official gaming partner of the nhl For years, if you wanted to place a sports bet in the United States, you had to physically be in a Las Vegas casino.
In 2018, a court decision made sports betting possible everywhere. Half of the states now offer Americans legalization. sports betting. Find out how this changed the game. I connected with one of America's top sports betting gurus. Can you talk a little bit about how quickly all of this is evolving? He has been a whirlwind. David Perdum says leagues have been fighting to make sure they don't. miss this bonanza that gives players all the tools they need to optimize the second down betting experience on three things like betting on whether a quarterback will complete the next pass, how long a player will be on the ice during a game or If a golfer makes his next putt, many of the bets in the future will be during the game almost as a fluid market throughout the game in the United Kingdom since more money is bet during a football match than he bet before the new generation play and bet during the games and to do that they must have fast and reliable information. the data and the people who have it are the leagues one league that watches this very closely is the cfl the league didn't play last season and next season it remains doubtful how big the game in the future of the cfl could be something daring I say could save the league, CFL insider Justin Dunk says for a league in perpetual financial turmoil, adopting the game makes sense, from what I'm told at the CFL level, there's an in-game app being developed so the league can actually monetize and the teams could monetize that so you can be sitting in your seat on your phone using that app betting on the next play and that could generally help your income for people in the crowd, but you could also do it at home on the same app, rob pizzola predicts that legal single-game betting in Canada will trigger a frenzy similar to the American experience, like flying through the air .
Bookmakers will compete for a piece of the Canadian market by paying licensing fees and taxes to operate here. lotteries will have to offer better odds and more options if they want to stay in the game, it's just another alternative form of betting that doesn't exist at the moment and when you add that to the other arsenal that includes matched betting, you now have this whole thing. complements and at least makes things a little more interesting, so Jamie, why weren't Canadians allowed to bet on individual games? It really is a question of integrity when you consider that it is much easier to influence the outcome of a game than to deal with it.
Two or three players also make a lot more money nowadays, so that's not really a problem when it comes to influencing the outcome of games and Canada was an outlier in this file. Single-game betting is allowed in many European markets and now many states south of the border, so presumably this puts more

options in front of Canadians and concerns about problem gambling. The hope is that this bill will retain a lot of the money that Canadians are already gambling here in Canada and that a lot of that money will be available to deal with things like gambling addiction and problem gamblers, okay jamie, thank you, thank you, whether it's watching sports together or celebrating the holidays, it's a time that many Canadians have been waiting for and restrictions will be lifted in time for summer, what better time to celebrate Christmas, but first.
I am far from my family and I miss them very much. A bicycle brigade delivers more than just food to those who have been living in isolation for months. Stay with us from lost jobs to isolation for fear this pandemic has created many difficulties. He also introduced us to many neighbor helpers who reach out to neighbors to get through this, like the bike brigade in Toronto. Nick Purden shows us how hundreds of volunteers are making a difference. Okay, we have a big one for you. Thank you. People need help. and you can't help them by staying home, you can't help them behind a keyboard, you can't help them by just sitting on your couch, there you go, great, have a nice trip.
Thank you so much. Lanrick Bennett Jr. is a member of something called the bike brigade, a group of volunteers that Chris crisscrosses the city seven days a week, started because of the pandemic, when you know your time and effort could be better spent helping others People, how can you say no? How can you? How are you? Today the bike brigade works as an intermediary, they collect food from food banks and other agencies and take it to the people who due to kovid cannot get it themselves instead of staying at home when the pandemic started, these are the people who On the contrary, they went out to help.
Carrie Shearer has been with the bike brigade since the beginning, so my first ride with the brigade was April 4, 2020 and I remember it because it was three days after my parents tested positive for coven 19. Those first days . They were so scary, they were so paralyzing and she needed to do something with it, with that paralyzing fear, what Kerry did was reject it, she forced herself to do something other than worry about her parents, she wanted to do something to feel like she had a little bit of control. , I'm like sitting at home and watching the scary numbers on the scene and the events unfolding, I felt like there had to be something I could do to help, I have a lot of balls, what do I do?
We need it so I signed up for the brigade and I was on a trip three days later, Carrie has been on hundreds of trips since she got on her bike and made deliveries, it helped her get through the pandemic, it has lessened a lot of the fear I have around covid. knowing that my community is here for me and that I can be here for the community and it's been really good for my sense of humanity and my hope. The bike brigade has grown so much since the start of the pandemic that they now have 900 volunteers. each with their own reason for joining, have a good trip, you can do it while you wait, oh perfect, okay, great, danielle gritzy is a cyclist and mechanic.
She joined here because she was about to need help at the beginning of the pandemic. I was basically heartbroken because I lost my job that I was about to start and I was laid off from the job I had been working on. We don't have to have any, like pedal keys, right? Oh, Danielle, well, yes, Danielle became Serbian and she was. able to make ends meet and then decided to help others as if no one had ever asked us for tools but you're here I swear I didn't curse him I joined the bike brigade because it seemed like they were doing something that if I don't I have so much Luckily I might need someone to deliver food to my door, so I thought it was important enough for me to go out and just get on my bike.
It feels like these threads are stripped, my friend. There was a drop I did where Someone needed something like a sweater and a bottle of laundry detergent in their house and that gave a little bit of purpose to my day, so even though I was doing something small and even though I wasn't I'm not the fastest cyclist nor the strongest. I can still do something, so you know, let's give some oil to your opportunity. The bike brigade has helped Danielle in a positive way, but of course the most important thing they do is deliver food. Lanrick Bennett Junior Day continues here in the Saint Jamestown community community. op a food program in the center that the bike brigade has helped keep going thank you very much I got it lanrick picks up a box of food for an elderly person who lives alone thank you ladies I carry a precious load that will hopefully feed them for a full week I need to deliver it to you I can't stop I can't stop you can see with your own eyes where these boxes are going who are the people who need this help how are you today?
I feel healthy I'll leave it right here thank you, no problem, I appreciate it, no problem, this is a good hug for me, no problem, thank you very much for giving us, we need that, I need it so much, have a good night, okay, good night, thank you. very much no problem trini filon is 70 years old and lives on a fixed income I have been isolated since the pandemic began in March last year and it is not easy for me to live alone because you are limited to yourself and you feel unhappy because I am far from my family and I miss them so much Trini says her rent is so high that buying fresh food is often difficult, we hope so, but she tells me it's not just the food that's in the box, it's that someone delivered it to her, it's very very Very grateful, at least I am important in the way someone meets my immediate needs instead of worrying me, it is an indescribable joy.
Really the pandemic could have created the bike brigade, but Lanrick wants you to know that he is here to stay, I won't.
