Global National: March 27, 2024 | 2 bodies recovered in Baltimore bridge collapse, 4 still missing

Two bodies have been recovered from the catastrophic collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge, while authorities say they have begun a “salvage operation” for four people presumed dead. Joel Senick reports on what is known about the two confirmed victims and how their deaths are being felt by the community.

Not only did the collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge destroy a major transportation artery, it also shut down the Port of Baltimore — one of America’s largest ports. Cargo traffic has been completely cut off in the wake of the catastrophe, with no estimate on when it will start moving again. Anne Gaviola has more on the ramifications for the local economy and the global supply chain.

The Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA) gave out almost $50 million to nearly 900,000 businesses to help them stay afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic. But as Abigail Bimman explains, while the federal government extended the repayment deadline, it now looms again for tens of thousands of businesses struggling to pay it back.

The public inquiry into alleged foreign interference in Canada’s 2019 and 2021 federal elections has begun its second round of hearings in Ottawa. As David Akin explains, members of diaspora communities testified about how their lives have been affected.

It has been nearly four years since a gunman disguised as a police officer killed 22 people over a 13-hour period in Nova Scotia. RCMP Commissioner Mike Duheme admits the force made mistakes during Canada’s worst mass shooting and has changed since then. But as Heidi Petracek reports, victims’ families have lost faith in the RCMP.

Ottawa has helped 82 Canadians escape Haiti, where out-of-control gang violence has descended the nation into chaos. Mike Armstrong looks at how some Canadians plotted their own exit strategy and why Haiti’s crisis doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon.

Plus, Canadian podcaster Craig Baird has reflected the unique characteristics of Canada’s provinces and territories by using artificial intelligence to generate a different Easter Bunny for every corner of the country. But the creation for Manitoba is more alarming than charming. Melissa Ridgen goes down the rabbit hole for reaction to what’s being called the “psychopathic bunny.”
