Global National: Sept. 23, 2022 | Maritimers brace for hurricane Fiona’s landfall in Canada

CA, 24 Sep 2022
On this episode of Global National: Hurricane Fiona is trekking toward Nova Scotia and is expected to make landfall on Saturday. Right now, it has the strength and potential to become one of Canada’s worst storms in history. Ross Lord takes a look at the preparations being made as people brace for the hurricane’s arrival.

Plus, Global’s chief meteorologist Anthony Farnell looks at the forecast for hurricane Fiona and the impact it might have as it barrels toward the Maritimes.

It's the final day of public hearings at the Mass Casualty Commission, which looked into the shooting rampage that took place in April 2020 in Portapique, N.S. Graeme Benjamin has that story.

Turning to the protests in Iran, scenes of anger are playing out across the country as people take to the streets amid chants and protests, in a dramatic show of defiance against the regime. This follows the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died last week in the custody of Iran’s so-called ”morality police” – a notorious unit that enforces compulsory headscarf laws. Heather Yourex-West reports on the latest updates as the government imposes an Internet blackout to curb dissent.

Finally, David Akin has a preview of Global’s energy special, “Landlocked,” about Canada’s energy crisis. He takes a look at the cost of Canada’s aggressive CO2 targets, the collateral damage it has caused to the country’s energy sector, and its ability to be an international player.
