Global National: May 8, 2021 | Ontario’s frenzy to get COVID-19 vaccination

by News Update

The Ontario government has quietly expanded its COVID-19 vaccination campaign to include people as young as 18. With more Ontarians now eligible to get the shot, there is no shortage of demand. As Kamil Karamali explains, there’s a frenzy to get vaccinated.

Alberta is the country’s COVID-19 hot spot. It has the highest rate of active cases in Canada and the United States. The province has increased restrictions including limiting outdoor gatherings to five people, moving students to online learning and increasing fines for people who break the rules. Despite that, anti-lockdown protests continue. Abigail Bimman speaks with the mayor of Calgary about the situation in Alberta.

There’s growing concern that the shortage of oxygen devastating COVID-ravaged India could happen in other developing nations. Redmond Shannon explains how The Every Breath Counts Coalition is working to keep the crisis from reaching those countries.

A Global News investigation has found that women rarely lead Canadian military police investigations into sexual misconduct claims. David Akin reports on the latest example of gender imbalance within the Canadian Armed Forces.

The detention and secretive trials of the two Michaels in China have made international headlines, but the case has put a spotlight on the thousands of political prisoners being held by the communist government. Jeff Semple has the story of one American fighting to free them.

You’re probably familiar with Bitcoin, but another cryptocurrency that started out as a spoof is on a tear. Dogecoin has become a go-to investment and adding to the hype is Tesla founder Elon Musk. Anne Gaviola has more.

The world’s eyes are on the skies this weekend, with chunks of China’s Long March 5B rocket expected to crash down soon in the Pacific Ocean. As Jennifer Johnson reports, this isn’t the first time China has lost track of its space debris.

Thank you Global News and all other media organizations for promoting the great devide of humanity by propogating the fear campaign.

So what is wrong with being a nationalist? Maybe more people should be quick to employ Canadians & buy Canadian made products.

Bumblebee May 9, 2021 - 8:46 AM

OMG, I hope people do not gather and wear masks! This is absolutely heart breaking to see what is happening in India. It has to be a GLOBAL EFFORT to fight this virus.

People buying Dogecoin are not "investors", they are gamblers and people wanting to share in a giant pyramid scheme.

The fact is, BTC is the future of crypto and the questions traders ask themselves now is if this is right time to invest? before jumping into conclusion i think you should take a look at things first. for the past few days the price of BTC has been fluctuating which means the market is currently unstable and you cant tell if it is going bearish or bullish. while others still continue to trade without the fear of making lose, others are being patient. it all depends on the pattern with which you trade and also the source of your signals. i would say trading has been going smoothly for me, I started with 1.5 BTC and i've accumulated over 7.5 BTC in just three weeks, with the trading strategy given to me by expert trader Bryan Welsh. His methods are top notch and profitable and he can be contacted easily on Teleqram (@welsh_trades) cheers.
