>>Announcer: THIS IS CBC “HERE & NOW.”>>>SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE. SO I’M AT BANTERMAN PARK ENJOYING THE WEATHER AND I’LL HAVE YOUR FULL FORECAST BUT FIRST TO CAROLYN WITH TODAY’S TOP NEWS.>>Reporter: OTHER THAN THE LEG AND THE HEAD I GOT MINOR CUTS AND BRUISES. I GOT VERY LUCKY.>>Carolyn: STRUCK BY A CAR ON A CROSSWALK AND THEN HURLED ON TOP OF ANOTHER CAR. NOW HE’S HOPING WITNESSES TO HIS HIT-AND-RUN WILL COME FORWARD.>>>GOOD EVENING, AND WELCOME TO “HERE & NOW.” I’M CAROLYN STOKES. ROBERT HOWELL IS RECOVERING AT HOME NOW AFTER BEING STRUCK BY A CAR IN A BRAZEN HIT-AND-RUN LAST SUNDAY. POLICE ARE SEEKING ANSWERS AS TO WHO HIT HIM AND THEN FLED, LEAVING HIM LYING INJURED IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY INTERSECTION. “HERE & NOW’S” RYAN COOKE HAS OUR TOP STORY.>>Reporter: ROBERT HOWELL’S FEMUR, THE STRONGEST BONE IN THE HUMAN BODY, SNAPPED. HE HAS FIVE STAPLES TO CLOSE A WOUND IN THE HEAD.>>OTHER THAN THE LEG AND THE HEAD I GOT MINOR CUTS AND BRUISES. I GOT VERY LUCKY. ROIL HOWELL WAS WALKING ACROSS THIS INTERSECTION AT COLUMBUS AND BLACKMARSH WHEN A CAR MADE A LEFT-HAND TURN ON BLACKMARSH ROAD. HE NEVER SAW IT COMING. CATAPULTED HIM THROUGH THE AIR. HIS HEAD HIT THE CAR SO HARD THAT IT SMASHED THE WINDOW AND DESTROYED THE BACK DOOR.>>THE FACT THAT I HIT THAT CAR SO HARD THAT I BUCKLED THE DOOR, LIKE, COMPLETELY IN. IT BLOWS MY MIND.>>Reporter: POLICE ARE SEARCHING FOR A DARK-COLOURED LATE-MODEL JEEP PATRIOT. THEY SAY THAT IT HAS SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE TO THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. HOWELL IS RECOVERING AT HOME NOW. HE’S A FATHER OF SIX WITH FOUR CHILDREN UNDER 10 AND LIVES WITH A PARTNER WHO WAS UTTERLY TERRIFIED WHEN SHE GOT THE CALL.>>I WAS JUST GLAD THAT HE WASN’T DEAD. AT THIS POINT I WAS FEARING THE WORSE, LIKE THE KIDS ON THE WAY OUT THE DOOR I WAS CRYING, THEY WERE CRYING, AND IT WAS VERY EMOTIONAL.>>Reporter: HOWELL HAS A MESSAGE FOR THE PERSON WHO HIT HIM.>>I WANT TO KNOW WHY. THAT’S ALL I WANT TO KNOW — WHY DID HE LEAVE ME THERE? LIKE, ACCIDENTS HAPPEN, I CAN FORGIVE THAT. BUT TO JUST LEAVE A MAN BLEEDS ON THE ROAD LIKE THAT, THAT’S COLD.>>Reporter: COLD, AND CRIMINAL. RYAN COOKE, CBC NEWS, ST. JOHN’S.>>Carolyn: WELL, A FIRE AT A DAYCARE IN ST. JOHN’S EARLIER THIS MONTH IS NOW CONSIDERED SUSPICIOUS. THE ROYAL NEWFOUNDLAND CONSTABULARY HAS BEEN INVESTIGATING THE FIRE AT METHOD HEN’S DAYCARE FOR WEEKS. IT’S STILL NOT CLEAR HOW THE FIRE STARTED OR EXACTLY WHY POLICE SAY THAT IT’S SUSPICIOUS NOW. THE FIREFIGHTERS WERE CALLED TO ROPE WALK LANE IN THE MIDDLE OF NIGHT ON JULY 3rd. THE DAYCARE IS IN A STRIP MALL RIGHT NEXT TO A FILIPINO RESTAURANT. AND THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED FOR THREE WEEKS TO CLEAN UP FROM THE SMOKE DAMAGE. BUT THE DAYCARE IS STILL SHUT DOWN.>>>VETERINARIANS AROUND ST. JOHN’S ARE WARNING PET OWNERS ARE THREE CONFIRMED CASES OF PARVO VIRUS IN THE CITY. IT CAN BE FATAL AND IT’S MOST DANGEROUS TO YOUNG PUPPIES OR DOGS NOT FULLY VACCINATED. DR. MAGGIE BROWN-BURY WITH THE VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION SAYS THAT IF YOUR DOG HAS BEEN AROUND OTHER DOGS AND DOESN’T SEEM QUITE WELL, YOU SHOULD GET HIM CHECKED OUT. THE TEST FOR PARVO VIRUS IS SIMPLE AND THE RESULTS ARE USUALLY AVAILABLE FROM ANY VETERINARIAN WITHIN 20 MINUTES. (♪♪♪) [HORN]>>Reporter: TRAIN TRAVEL IS BACK IN NEWFOUNDLAND — SORT OF. WE’LL CHECK OUT A NEW WAY TO GET AROUND CORNER BROOK THIS SUMMER COMING UP ON “HERE & NOW.”>>Carolyn: A RECORD WAS BROKEN YESTERDAY AT THE TELY-10 RUN. ANN JOHNSTON PLACED FIRST WITH A TIME OF 54 MINUTES AND 24 SECONDS, SHE BROKE THE ALL-TIME WOMEN’S RECORD BY MORE THAN A MINUTE. JENNIFER MURIN CAME IN 30 SECONDS BEHIND JOHNSTON. MURIN WAS THE FASTEST WOMAN LAST YEAR AND THE YEAR BEFORE. KATE BASELY WAS THIRD, SHE WAS THE PREVIOUS RECORD HOLDER. AND AS FOR THE MEN, COLIN FEWER PLACED FIRST, RUNNING THE 10-MILES IN UNDER 50 MINUTES. HIS TIME WAS 49:49. AND GRAYDON SNYDER WAS SECOND WITH A TIME OF JUST OVER 51 MINUTES AND MATT NOSEWORTHY AT THIRD AT JUST TWO SECONDS BEHIND SNYDER. WE SPOKE TO ANNE JOHNSTON AND COLIN FEWER ABOUT THEIR WINS AND THEIR TRAINING.>>I’M REALLY HAPPY, REALLY EXCITED, YOU KNOW, I’M KIND OF STILL IN SHOCK A LITTLE BIT BUT, YEAH, DEFINITELY HAPPY. [Applause]>>I HAD A REAL CONSISTENT YEAR OF TRAINING AND I DID A RUN IN THE SPRING SO I HAD A GOOD YEAR OF TRAINING AND LOTS OF MILES AND HARD WORK IN THE WINTER. I WAS STRONG OVER IN BOSTON AND KIND OF TOOK THE STRENGTH FROM THAT TRAINING AND CARRIED IT FORWARD TO TODAY.>>IT’S AMAZING TO RUN THAT COURSE AND TO SEE THE PEOPLE OUT ON THE COURSE, IT’S A BEAUTIFUL ENERGY, AND A FUN DAY.>>IT’S KIND OF KNOWING WHEN TO MAKE A MOVE. AND YEARS BEFORE I TOOK IT HARD AND PAID FOR IT. AND SO IT’S GOOD KNOWING WHEN TO PUSH YOURSELF HARD ENOUGH TO KIND OF RUN STRONG BUT NOT TOO HARD THAT YOU CAN MAKE IT TO THE FINISH. [Applause]>>AND IF I SAVE A MINUTE, THAT’S EASY ENOUGH IN THE HEAT OR WITH AN UPSET STOMACH. YOU HAVE TO BE ON YOUR GAME, AND BESIDES TRAINING HARD. IF YOU DON’T TAKE ANY COMPETITOR LIGHTLY.>>IT WAS GOOD, I MEAN, IT WAS HOT, CERTAINLY, I TOOK WATER PRETTY MUCH AT EVERY STATION AND I FELT THAT IT WAS HOT AND I WANTED TO STAY AHEAD OF THAT. BUT OVERALL I RAN WELL.>>WELL, THE TEMPERATURES WERE A LITTLE BETTER. PROBABLY A LOT BETTER THAN LAST YEAR. AND I FELT BETTER TRAINING IN THIS ONE THAN LAST YEAR AND JUST ONE OF THE BETTER DAYS THAT WE HAD IN LAST 10 YEARS SO YOU HAVE TO TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT.>>COMING THROUGH I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THAT FINISH LINE FOR SURE. YOU KNOW, I DEFINITELY GAVE IT ALL I HAD TODAY SO I WOULDN’T CHANGE ANYTHING, I’M HAPPY WITH HOW IT WENT.>>THINGS HAVE TO COME TOGETHER RIGHT SO I SORT OF FELT THIS MORNING THAT I WOULD LIKE TO BE A FEW SECONDS FASTER OR 30 OR 40 SECONDS FASTER. BUT I WENT FOR IT. AND I JUST CAN RUN FAST. AND I GOT OTHER ASPIRATIONS AND OTHER — UM… OTHER GOALS. I WANT TO RUN A MARATHON IN THE NEXT YEAR OR SO. SO HOPEFULLY I’LL RECOVER FROM THE TELY IN THE NEXT 10 DAYS OR SO AND I’LL SET MY SIGHTS ON THE BOSTON MARATHON, WHICH I HAVEN’T DONE YET. (♪♪♪)>>Ashley: IT’S WEATHER YESTERDAY FOR THE TELY-10. AND TODAY EVEN BETTER. A GORGEOUS AFTERNOON TODAY AND THE TEMPERATURES QUITE WARM. SO WE’RE OUT AT BANTERMAN PARK ENJOYING THE SUNSHINE AT THE SPLASH PAD AND GETTING A LITTLE BIT WET EVERY TIME THAT THE KIDS START TO MOVE STUFF AROUND. BUT AS FAR AS THE WEATHER GOES, WE’RE SEEING SOME THUNDERSTORMS MOVING THROUGH LABRADOR, THEY’RE STARTING TO MAKE THEIR WAY TOWARDS THE WEST COAST. THAT RISK CONTINUES FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS AND THEN AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW, ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY AS FAR AS SUN/CLOUD GO, BUT WE HAVE A RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS. I’LL HAVE ALL OF THOSE DETAILS AND YOUR FULL FORECAST COMING UP.>>Carolyn: IT LOOKS GREAT OUT THERE.>>>NOW TO A DIFFERENT WATER STORY. THE CITY OF ST. JOHN’S IS CALLING ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO KEEP ITS PROMISE TO PAY FOR 50% OF A $250 MILLION WASTE WATER TREATMENT FACILITY. THIS IS THE RIVERHEAD FACILITY ON THE SOUTHSIDE OF ST. JOHN’S HARBOUR. THE FEDERAL LEGISLATION NOW REQUIRES ST. JOHN’S TO BUILD A SECONDARY WASTE WATER TREATMENT FACILITY WITH AN ESTIMATED COST OF $250 MILLION. RIGHT NOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SAYS THAT IT WILL PAY 43% OF THAT BILL, BUT MAYOR DANNY BREEN SAYS THAT’S NOT ENOUGH.>>FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE, WE CAN’T PUT OURSELVES AND THE TAXPAYERS OF THE CITY AND THE TAXPAYERS OF THE REGION IN THAT POSITION WHERE WE KNOW GOING IN THAT WE’RE GOING TO BE OVER BUDGET ON A FACILITY.>>Carolyn: WELL, A BOOK ABOUT LABRADOR RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL SURVIVOR TOBY OBED IS SELLING OUT AT BOOKSTORES IN POLAND. IT’S ONLY BEEN OUT ABOUT SIX WEEKS BUT IT’S BEEN CALLED ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS OF THE YEAR. OBED’S STORY IS RESONATING IN THAT COUNTRY. “HERE & NOW’S” KATIE BREEN EXPLAINS WHY.>>Reporter: THIS IS THE MOMENT — RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL SURVIVOR TONY OBED ACCEPTING JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S APOLOGY. IN 2017, THE PRIME MINISTER WAS IN LABRADOR SAYING SORRY FOR CANADA’S PART IN RESIDENTIAL SCHOOLS HERE. SHE WAS WORKING IN TORONTO AND SAW A PHOTO OF THE MOMENT AND KNEW THAT IT WOULD BE HER FIRST BOOK. IN ENGLISH IT TRANSLATES TO “THE 27 DEATHS OF TONY OBED,” NAMED FOR EACH OF THE OBSTACLES THAT OBED FACED. STARTING AT AGE 4 WHEN HE WAS FIRST TAKEN FROM HIS HOME.>>I THINK THAT IT IS PROPER FOR US TO ACCEPT THE APOLOGY FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA.>>Reporter: SHE WORKS FOR THE BIGGEST NEWSPAPER IN POLAND AND HE SAYS THAT THE 27 DEATHS OF TONY OBED IS ONE OF MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS EVER WRITTEN AND PUBLISHED BY A POLISH AUTHOR. SOME BOOKSTORES HAVE SOLD OUT. HE SAYS THAT THERE’S A QUIET POPULARITY ABOUT IT. THERE WASN’T A BIG SPLASH WITH THE BOOK BUT PEOPLE RECOMMEND IT TO THEIR FRIENDS AND SHARE IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA. IT’S RESONATING FOR TWO REASONS. THE SHOCK FACTOR THAT CANADA DID SOMETHING LIKE THAT. AND THEN THE DELAY.>>AND WE HAVE OUR OWN STORIES OF KIDS INCARCERATED IN SCHOOLS AND VICTIMS OF DIFFERENT PRIESTS AND NUNS, ABUSIVE OKAY ARE ABUS. SO THE HISTORY OF TOBY AND OTHER SURVIVORS HAVE REMOVED FROM BEING A VICTIM TO BEING A SURVIVOR. MOVED FROM BEING A HELPLESS CHILD TO BEING A COURAGEOUS ADULT. IT’S SOMETHING THAT WE CAN ALL LEARN FROM AND GROW FROM. SO I THINK THAT ALTHOUGH IT’S A VERY LOCAL STORY, IT’S A VERY CANADIAN STORY, THAT IT’S ALSO A GREAT HANDBOOK FOR POLISH IN OTHER COUNTRIES ON HOW TO EMBARK ON RECONCILIATION.>>Reporter: POLAND ISN’T IN A PLACE WHERE THEY’RE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THE CHURCH HAS WRONG SOMEDAY PEOPLE. OH, PEOPLE HOPES THAT HIS STORY WILL HELP THE PEOPLE TO GET THERE.>>ONCE A WEEK I GO TO THE FOUR SABBATHS AND ANTICIPATING THE ARRIVE HALF THE BOOK. WHEN I DID GET IT, IT’S LIKE I HAVE IT IN MY HAND, YOU KNOW, I’M ACTUALLY HOLDING IT. AND THIS IS WRITTEN BY A WOMAN WHO WAS WAY ACROSS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD.>>Reporter: FOR NOW OBED CAN’T READ THE BOOK AS IT’S WRITTEN BECAUSE IT’S IN POLISH, BUT GIVEN THE POPULARITY THEY THINK TO PUBLISH IT IN ENGLISH. SOMETHING THAT OBED WOULD LIKE TO SEE.>>I’D REALLY LIKE TO READ IT.>>Reporter: KATIE BREEN, CBC NEWS, ST. JOHN’S.>>Carolyn: NOW TO CORNER BROOK WHERE A NEW TOURIST ATTRACTION IS ON WHEELS LITERALLY. THE NEW STRAIGHT TRAIN IS A HIT. AND “HERE & NOW’S” LINDSAY BIRD TAKES US ON BOARD.>>Reporter: AT FIRST SIGHT CORNER BROOK’S NEW STREET TRAIN LOOKS A LITTLE SILLY, LIKE AN ULTRA-CANADIAN THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE. BUT IT’S ENTRANCED PEOPLE.>>SO BUMPY AND AWESOME.>>Reporter: WOULD DO YOU IT AGAIN?>>YES. IN FACT, I WOULD SLEEP AND LIVE ON THE TRAIN. I LOVE IT.>>I LIKE LOOKING AT EVERY PART OF THE CITY THAT I CAN SEE.>>IT IS KIDS LOVE IT, SO I AM MAKING THE KIDS HAPPY.>>Reporter: WAS IT THEIR REQUEST?>>IT WAS THEIR REQUEST. AND THEY LIKE WHISTLING AROUND THE CORNER AND THEY STARTED FREAKING OUT. SO WE HAD TO OBLIGE THEM.>>Reporter: AT EVERY STOP, THE TRAIN-GOERS AWAIT. ON THE SUNNIEST DAYS SOME HAVE EVEN HAD TO BE TURNED AWAY FROM THE TOONIE RIDE THROUGH CORNER BROOK’S DOWNTOWN. THE CITY INITIALLY HOPED THAT A HUNDRED PEOPLE WOULD RIDE THE TRAIN DAILY AND SO FAR THIS SUMMER IT’S AVERAGING 400.>>WE THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD ADD SOMETHING NEW TO THE BUSINESSES AROUND THAT WE’RE SERIOUS ABOUT THE TOURISM GAME. BUT, NO, I DON’T THINK THAT ANY OF US ANTICIPATED HOW — HOW MUCH OF A SMILE IT WOULD BRING TO THE GENERAL POPULATION.>>Reporter: THE CITY TEAMED UP WITH THE PORT AUTHORITY FOR A ONE-TIME LEASE ON THE TRAIN FROM A HALIFAX COMPANY. PARSONS SAYS THAT T CITY WAS PREPARED TO LOSE UP TO $25,000 ON ITS TOURISM GAMBLE, BUT THE BOOM IN RIDERSHIP MIGHT MEAN IT BREAKS EVEN. BUT EITHER WAY, PARSONS SAYS THAT THIS IS THE BOOST THAT CORNER BROOK NEEDS TO RE-MAKE ITSELF AS A TOURISM TOWN.>>I THINK THAT THIS IS WELL WORTH IT. IF YOU TALK TO THE BUSINESSES IN THE DOWNTOWN AND THE TOURISM INDUSTRY, I DON’T THINK THAT IT’S ANY QUIBBLES ABOUT THAT. FROM AN ECONOMIC STANDPOINT — IT IS A DEFINITE WINNER.>>Reporter: THE CITY IS NOW LOOKING AT BRINGING THE TRAIN BACK FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020, IF THERE’S AN APPETITE. WHICH SO FAR SEEMS THERE IS. YOU THINK THAT YOU WOULD RIDE THE TRAIN AGAIN?>>OH, YES. GOING FOR ANOTHER LAP, WHEN WE GET OFF WE’RE GOING FOR ANOTHER LAP.>>Reporter: THERE’S STILL TIME TO TRY THE TRAIN FOR YOURSELF. IT RUNS UNTIL MID-OCTOBER, IF YOU CAN GET A SEAT. LINDSAY BIRD, CBC NEWS, CORNER BROOK. (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: A LIVE SHOT OF BEAUTIFUL BANTERMAN PARK. THAT’S WHERE ASHLEY IS RIGHT NOW SOAKING UP ALL OF THAT SUNSHINE. SHE’S GOING TO ALSO HAVE YOUR FORECAST JUST AHEAD. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>BEES ARE BOOMING. THEY ARE BUSY COLLECTING IN FACTOR AND POLEN AND TODAY WE’RE OPENING UP THE HIVES TO SEE HOW MUCH HONEY THEY HAVE MADE.>>THIS IS WHAT PREVENTS THE QUEEN FROM GETTING INTO THE HONEY BOXES. WE KEEP THE QUEEN SEPARATE SO SHE’S IN THE BROOD BOX OR THE MAIN PART OF THE HIVE AND THERE WON’T BE EGGS OR LARVAE INTO WHERE THE HONEY IS AND SO WE’LL GET PURE HONEY. SO WHREER BLENDING IN EMPTY BOXES BECAUSE YOU’RE SEPARATING THEM FROM WHERE THE BABY BEES ARE. AND THEY WANT TO MAKE MORE HONESTY AND KEEP IT CLOSE TO THE BROOD SO THEY’LL REALLY, REALLY POWER UP AND GET MORE HONEY OUT OF THE HIVE.>>Carolyn: SEE THE LARVAE DOWN HERE? IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE FEEDING ON THE LARVAE?>>THEY ARE, YEAH.>>Carolyn: THEY LOOK EXPOSED BUT I GUESS NOT?>>NOT WHEN THEY’RE IN THE HIVE.>>Carolyn: HOW MANY BEES DO YOU THINK THAT ARE IN HERE?>>OH, GOD, LOOKING AT THE BOTTOM BOX THERE’S A GOOD 65,000 BEES HERE. WE HAVE A BABY BEE BEING BORN RIGHT HERE. A LITTLE HEAD IS STICKING OUT. SO THAT’S A NEW BEE JUST BEING BORN. THAT IS — SO THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF WORKER BROOD HERE. HONEY AND THEN YOU’VE GOT WORKER BROOD AND HERE’S THE DRONE BROOD. TURN AROUND. A FEW BEES.>>Carolyn: COVERED IN BEES. I LOVE THE SOUND OF IT. SO MUCH POUNDS IS IN THE HIVE?>>50 OR 60-POUNDS OF HONEY. AND WE STILL HAVE TWO OR MORE MONTHS TO GO SO THERE’S A LOT MORE COMING THIS YEAR.>>Carolyn: WE HAVE SOME HERE?>>WE’LL TASTE IT. SO WE’LL PUSH THE SPOON IN.>>Carolyn: OH, WOW! LOOK AT THAT!>>THERE YOU GO.>>Carolyn: I’LL TAKE THAT ONE.>>YEP.>>Carolyn: OH, MY GOODNESS, THAT IS AMAZING!>>HONESTY FROM YOUR OWN BACKYARD.>>Carolyn: IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT. THANKS, PAUL.>>YOU’RE WELCOME.>>Carolyn: WELL, THAT WAS MY DAY YESTERDAY WITH THE BEES. AND THEY’RE DOING SO WELL, ASHLEY.>>Ashley: YES, THEY LOOK LIKE THEY ARE. AND YOU’RE COVERED IN BEES THERE.>>Carolyn: ABSOLUTELY. BUT I HAVEN’T BEEN STUNG YET. BUT YOU HAVE?>>Ashley: I WAS GOING TO SAY THAT, YES, I DID. WHAT IS THAT NOW, TWO OR THREE WEEKS AGO? NO, MAYBE LONGER THAN THAT.>>Carolyn: THE BEE GOT INTO YOUR SHOE WHEN YOU CAME OVER TO MEET MY BEES IN THE BACKYARD AND, UNFORTUNATELY, YOU GOT STUNG ON THE ANKLE.>>Ashley: IT DIDN’T FEEL THAT BAD THOUGH. IT WAS WAY LESS NAIN THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. BUT, YEAH, ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL DAY YOU HAD FOR BEEKEEPING YESTERDAY. AND A NUMBER A NUMBER OF AREAS THIS WEEKEND SAW THEIR TEMPERATURES SOAR TO THE 30° RANGE. AND TODAY ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY. SO TAKE A LOOK AT THOSE HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON FOR MOST AREAS, SITTING IN THE HIGH 20s. 21° HERE IN ST. JOHN’S. AND 24° FOR BONAVISTA AND TWILLINGATE REACHED 26° TODAY. AND THEN WE HAVE 29° FOR DEER LAKE. NOW THOSE TEMPERATURES UP THROUGH LABRADOR, A LITTLE CHILLY SO ONLY AROUND 17° FOR MOST AND THEN COOL UP ALONG THE COAST. THOSE TEMPERATURES STILL SITTING IN THE SINGLE DIGITS AND WE HAVE DIPPED A LITTLE BIT FOR ST. JOHN’S, SITTING AT 19°. AND GANDER AT 25°. NOW I DID MENTION EARLIER THAT WE SAW SOME THUNDERSTORMS AND YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THAT UP THROUGH LABRADOR RIGHT NOW WITH SOME OF THAT BOUNCING SATELLITE RADAR BACK. BUT WE’RE STARTING TO SEE THAT CLOUD COVER PUSH FOR THE WEST COAST AS WELL AND WITH THAT WE ARE SEEING SOME SHOWERS. THAT RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE FOR PROBABLY THE NEXT HOUR OR SO I WOULD SAY, BUT WE ARE LOOKING AT SHOWERS FOR MOST OF CENTRAL AND TOWARDS THE AVALON, JUST A POTENTIAL FOR SHOWERS, NOTHING TOO SIGNIFICANT. BUT WE COULD SEE THAT BY THE TIME THAT TOMORROW MORNING ROLLS AROUND AND THEN STAYING UNSETTLED FOR LABRADOR AS WELL. THERE’S THAT RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS THAT I HAVE IN THERE AGAIN FOR THE NEXT HOUR OR SO, LIKELY SOME OF IT ALREADY STARTING TO PUSH OFF. AND THEN AS FAR AS THOSE TEMPERATURES GO, STILL MILD OVERNIGHT TONIGHT. ANYWHERE FROM 15° TO 17°, A LITTLE BIT COOLER ON THE SOUTH COAST THOUGH, PORT AUX BASQUE AND MARYSTOWN AROUND 14° TONIGHT. BUT, STILL, A BEAUTIFUL EVENING. OTHER THAN A RISK OF SHOWERS, AGAIN, IT WILL LIKELY BE PARTLY TO MOSTLY CLOUDY THROUGH NIGHT TONIGHT AND THOSE SOUTHWESTERLIES STILL BREEZY 20-40 km/h ON THE WEST COAST. AND THOSE WINDS SHOULD EASE. AND OVERNIGHT TONIGHT, DIPPING OR STAYING GENERALLY IN THE SINGLE DIGITS UP THROUGH NAIN AND CARTWRIGHT, AGAIN, WITH A RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS THERE. AND THEN SHOWERS POSSIBLE FOR HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, AND SAME FOR LAB CITY. OVERNIGHT TONIGHT YOU’RE SITTING BETWEEN 10° AND 12° WITH THOSE LIGHT WINDS. NOW TOMORROW THE HEAT IS GOING TO STICK AROUND AND THAT’S GOOD NEWS. BUT THERE’S A COLD FRONT THAT WILL SWEEP THROUGH AND SO WE COULD SEE AFTERNOON POP-UP THUNDERSHOWERS FOR THE ISLAND. GENERALLY LOOKING AT A MIX OF SUN/CLOUD THROUGH THE DAY AND THEN UP THROUGH LABRADOR, CLOUDY PERIODS I WOULD SAY THROUGH THE DAY. LAB CITY LATER ON IN THE EVENING, THAT’S WHEN THAT SHOWER ACTIVITY WILL PUSH IN AND HEAD TOWARDS HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY BY THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. STILL A RISK OF THUNDERSHOWERS FOR YOU IN LAB WEST. AND HEADING — OR FOR THE ISLAND, RATHER, YOU’RE LOOKING AT A RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS. AGAIN, POP-UP IN NATURE, LIKELY SCATTERED THROUGH THE DAY. BUT THOSE TEMPERATURES STILL QUITE NICE IN THE HIGH 20s. AND TOMORROW IS WHEN WE’LL START TO SEE THAT HUMIDITY MOVE IN. PLACENTIA AROUND 20°. AND MARYSTOWN, 27°. AND THEN TOWARDS CENTRAL, AGAIN, A RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS IN ACROSS THE BOARD, 28° IN GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR. HARBOUR BRETON IS COOLER AT 27° AND PORT AUX BASQUE, 22°. AND UP ALONG THE WEST COAST, A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND SUN/CLOUD, MORE THAN LIKELY, AND THEN THE TEMPERATURES IN THE MID-TO-HIGH 20s. NOTE THOSE COOLER TEMPERATURES UP THROUGH LABRADOR. 10° IS THE AFTERNOON HIGH IN CARTWRIGHT. AND LIKELY ONLY SITTING IN THE SINGLE DIGITS AGAIN FOR NORTHERN LABRADOR HEADING TOWARDS LAB CITY. AND SITTING AROUND 20° MARK. NOW AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS IT LOOKS LIKE WE’LL STICK WITH THIS PATTERN BUT I’LL HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS COMING UP. (♪♪♪)>>I’M REALLY HAPPY TO BE A PART OF THIS WHOLE OPERATION.>>I WILL SEE HOW GOOD IT IS.>>Carolyn: MOVING PEOPLE, CARS AND SUPPLIES TO LABRADOR’S NORTH COAST. THE NEW FERRY’S MAIDEN VOYAGE IS AHEAD ON “HERE & NOW.” (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELL, LABRADOR HAS A NEW VESSEL AND A NEW SEPARATOR. LABRADOR MARINE IS NOW TASKED WITH SERVICING LABRADOR’S NORTH COAST, AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE FOR THOSE ISOLATED COMMUNITIES. ALL EYES ARE ON THE NEW SHIP AND THE NEW SERVICE PROVIDER. OUR JACOB BARKER GOT A FRONT ROW SEAT ON THE FIRST TRIP. HERE’S PART ONE OF A SERIES “MAIDEN VOYAGE.” (♪♪♪)>>Reporter: THE HUMITEK W., IT’S NEW TO LABRADOR WATERS AND NOW HAS A BIG RESPONSIBILITY, SERVING THE PEOPLE OF NATUASHISH, AN AREA WITH NO ROAD IN. WITHOUT THIS SHIP THERE WOULD BE NO EFFICIENT WAY FOR FOOD, CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL OR ANYTHING TO REACH THE COAST. THE CREW KNOWS THIS AND FEELS RESPONSIBILITY.>>WE TAKE A LOT OF PRIDE IN WHAT WE DO AND I’M VERY HAPPY TO BE PART OF HELPING THE COMMUNITIES ON THE COAST TO GET THEIR DELIVERIES AND STUFF LIKE THAT. I’M REALLY HAPPY TO BE A PART OF THIS WHOLE OPERATION.>>Reporter: BUT THE NECESSITY OF IT MEANS THAT ANY SHIP THAT ENTERS THESE WATERS IS UNDER INTENSE SCRUTINY. EVERYBODY IS WATCHING AND WEIGHS IN ON THE NEW BOAT.>>I KNOW THAT THE PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS OF WHAT’S THE OUTCOME, BUT OTHER THAN THAT WE HAVE TO FIND OUT WHAT SHE’S LIKE ON THE WATER, WHEN THERE’S A HEAVY SEA.>>YOU ARE GOING TO GET PEOPLE, RIGHT AND YOU’RE NOT GOING TO SATISFY EVERYBODY. SO THAT WOULD BE MY FIRST TIME ON HER NOW AND I’LL SEE HOW GOOD IT IS.>>Reporter: THESE GUYS ARE FIRST IN LINE TO BE THE FIRST VEHICLE THAT ROLLS ABOARD THE SHIP. IT’S THE FIRST TIME THAT PEOPLE IN NORTHERN COMMUNITIES WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE ALONG WITH THEIR VEHICLES UP THE COAST.>>I THINK THAT IT’S CONVENIENT. YOU CAN PUT WHAT YOU WANT IN YOUR TRUCK AND GET ON AND GET OFF AND COME AND GET SUPPLIES OR WHATEVER, AND GET THE TRUCK AND GO.>>Reporter: THE SHIP ARRIVED A FEW DAYS PRIOR AND CREWS HAD TO HUSTLE TO GET IT CERTIFIED FOR CANADIAN WATERS. NOW THEY’RE HOURS BEHIND SCHEDULE, FINALLY THE CARS ROLL ABOARD.>>OH, IT’S NUMBER ONE, KEEP THEM COMING. [laughter]>>Reporter: THE DECKS ARE FILLED WITH CARGO. IT TAKES A WHILE TO GET GOING.>>YEAH, THERE’S ALWAYS A BIT OF HICCUP, ESPECIALLY WITH THE FIRST TIME. BUT WE’RE GOING TO GET IT STRAIGHTENED OUT AND NEXT TIME WE’LL BE FASTER. WE GOT IT, WE GOT IT.>>Reporter: WELL, WE FINALLY PUSHED OFF A FEW MINUTES AGO. THERE’S GOOSE BAY BEHIND ME IN THE BACKGROUND AND WE’RE ON OUR WAY TO RIGOLET AND WE SHOULD BE ARRIVING THERE NOT UNTIL 6:30 IN THE MORNING, NOT BECAUSE THAT’S HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE THERE, BUT BECAUSE WE’LL HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE LIGHT TO COME OUT BEFORE IT CAN BURST. THOSE THAT MANAGE TO GET A CABIN GET SETTLED IN. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE ROOM?>>NOT TOO BAD. IT’S KIND OF SMALL FOR FOUR PEOPLE. BUT IT WILL DO.>>Reporter: BRIAN RICH BROUGHT HIS FAMILY ABOARD AS WELL AS TWO TRUCKS. HE SAYS THAT WHILE IT’S GREAT TO HAVE THAT KIND OF ACCESS IN AND OUT OF NATUASHISH, IT MEANS CHANGES FOR HIS COMMUNITY.>>THERE WILL BE A LOT OF TICKETS GOING AROUND FOR THEM. AND THEY’LL GET OUT TICKETS BECAUSE THERE’S NON-REGISTERED VEHICLES AND SO IT WILL BE AN ISSUE FOR EVERYONE.>>Reporter: WHILE THERE’S A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT THE PROS AND THE CONS OF THE NEW VESSEL, CHRISTY SHEPHERD OF RIGOLET SENSES HISTORY. SHE’S ASKING EVERYONE ABOARD TO SIGN THE BOOK SHE’S READING.>>IT SEEMS THAT WE’RE COMING INTO A NEW ERA AND AS SUCH IT SEEMS APPROPRIATE TO MARK IT. SO A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING IT’S A MAIDEN VOYAGE AND SOME OF THAT IS WITH THE WEATHER OR THE COMPETITION IN TRAVEL OR WHATNOT SO EVERYONE IS EXCITED TO BE ABOARD. I HAVEN’T SIGNED IT MYSELF YET AND I HAVE TO GET ON THAT BUT, OTHERWISE, YEAH.>>Reporter: IT’S AFTER 6:30 IN THE MORNING HERE AND WE HAVE ARRIVED IN RIGOLET AND THE CREWS ARE TRYING TO PUT THE RAMP DOWN FOR THE FIRST TIME AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT THE PEOPLE ARE WATCHING VERY CLOSELY. LIKE GETTING THE SHIP GOING, THE ALTERATIONS TO THE DOCKS ARE HAPPENING AT THE LAST MINUTE BUT THE RAMP DOES COME DOWN OKAY. THE LOADING AREA IS STILL GRAVEL. THE CONCRETE IS STILL NEEDING TO BE POURED. BUT ACCOMMODATIONS ARE MADE AND THE FREIGHT STARTS COMING OFF AND SO DO THE VEHICLES.>>IT’S DIFFERENT. A LOT DIFFERENT. AND AT LEAST YOU CAN WALK ON AND WALK OFF NOW.>>Reporter: WHILE WEBER LIVES ON THE WEST COAST, HIS CONCERNS IS WITH THE SOUTH COAST COMMUNITIES THAT WERE A REGULAR RUN FOR THE NORTHERN RANGER, BUT NOW THAT SCHEDULE IS SCALED BACK THE.>>I’M FROM CARTWRIGHT AND I LIKE TO SEE THE FERRY GOING THAT WAY SO I CAN TAKE MY FAMILY AND GET ON THE BOAT AT RIGOLET AND GET OFF AND DRIVE.>>Reporter: THE ARRIVAL OF THE SHIP IS A RELIEF FOR SANDY MICHELIN WHOSE STORE SHELVES HAVE EMPTIED OUT WAITING. AND FOR HER THE SERVICE COMES AT A LOSS.>>WE’RE FINDING THAT WE’RE LOSING THE SHORT SERVICE AND WE DID GET A LOT OF OUR MERCHANDISE FROM THE ISLAND.>>Reporter: HER SUPPLY CHAIN IS DISRUPTED BY THE NEW SERVICE AND SHE’S ONLY HAD A YEAR TO FIGURE OUT NEW WAYS TO GET HER GOODS. HAVING IT COME THROUGH GOOSE BAY WILL BE A STRUGGLE SHE SAYS AND IT COULD MEAN AN INCREASE IN PRICES.>>THIS IS MY FIRST LOT OF GOODS COMING IN SO I HAVE TO SEE THE PRODUCT THAT I HAVE AND THEN CRUNCH NUMBERS. I DO ANTICIPATE SOME INCREASE.>>Reporter: THE LAST OF THE CARGO IS OFF THE SHIP, A BUMPY ROAD TO THE FIRST STOP BUT IT GOT THERE OKAY. THE DAY IS STILL YOUNG AND THE REST OF THE COAST AWAITS AS THE KUMUTIK W. SETS SAIL AGAIN. NEXT STOP — MAKKOVIK.>>Carolyn: THAT WAS “HERE & NOW’S” JACOB BARBER ON BOARD THE KUMITIK W., WITH “MAIDEN VOYAGE.” TUNE IN TOMORROW NIGHT FOR PART TWO.>>>WELL, RETURNING NOW TO TONIGHT’S TOP STORY…>>>A WEEK AGO ROBERT HOWELL WAS ON A CROSSWALK NEAR COLUMBUS DRIVE AND BLACKMARSH ROAD IN ST. JOHN’S WHERE SEEMINGLY OUT OF NOWHERE HE WAS STRUCK BY A CAR. HIS BODY WAS SENT FLYING INTO THE AIR AND INTO A SECOND VEHICLE. POLICE BELIEVE THAT THE DRIVER WHO STRUCK HOWELL IS A MAN IN HIS 30s. HE FLED THE SCENE. ROBERT HOWELL SPOKE TO CBC ABOUT THE ACCIDENT.>>I CAN’T BELIEVE IT. LIKE, THE FACT THAT I HIT THAT CAR SO HARD THAT I BUCKLED THE DOOR, LIKE, COMPLETELY IN. IT’S, LIKE, IT BLOWS MY MIND.>>Reporter: (INDISCERNIBLE).>>HE SHATTERED MY FEMUR AND IT STUCK OUT THROUGH MY LEG AND I HAVE A STEEL ROD REINFORCING THAT AND I HAVE FIVE STAPLES IN MY HEAD WHERE I HEAD BUTTED THE SECOND WINDOW. OTHER THAN THE HEAD AND THE LEG, I HAVE MINOR CUTS AND BRUISES. I GOT VERY LUCKY. I’M NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT THAT. THAT I’M THANKFUL TO BE HERE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS. THE PARAMEDIC SAID THAT I MUST HAVE BEEN MADE OF STEEL AND THE COP SAID THAT I’M NOT FROM THIS PLANET. LIKE, IT’S BLOWING EVERYONE’S MIND. AND THE FACT THAT I WAS RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL THREE DAYS LATER, LIKE THE AMOUNT OF PROGRESS THAT I’VE MADE, EVERYONE IS STUNNED. I’VE GIVEN IT A LOT OF THOUGHT. I’M NOT ANGRY BECAUSE HE HIT ME. ACCIDENTS HAPPEN. IT’S THE FACT THAT HE LEFT ME THERE. THAT’S WHAT HURTS THE MOST. I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY. THAT’S ALL I WANT TO KNOW — WHY DID HE LEAVE ME THERE? LIKE, ACCIDENTS HAPPEN, I CAN FORGIVE THAT. BUT TO JUST LEAVE A MAN BLEEDING ON THE ROAD LIKE, THAT THAT’S COLD.>>I GOT THE CALL AND THE CALL DIDN’T SOUND VERY PROMISING. THEY SAID THEY WERE WORKING ON HIM AND THAT I SHOULD GET THERE IMMEDIATELY. I IMMEDIATELY BROKE DOWN. SO I GOT THERE AS FAST AS I COULD AND HE WAS GONE TO C.A.T. SCAN WHEN I FIRST GOT THERE AND HE CAME BACK AND HE WAS BUSTED UP AND STITCHES ACROSS HIS HEAD. HE DIDN’T HAVE ANYTHING BANDAGED UP AT THIS POINT AND SO I COULD SEE THE STAPLES AND THERE’S PROBABLY ABOUT 60 IN HIS BODY. I WAS JUST GLAD THAT HE WASN’T DEAD AT THIS POINT. I WAS FEARING THE WORSE, LIKE, THE KIDS ON THE WAY OUT THE DOOR I WAS CRYING AND THEY WERE CRYING AND IT WAS VERY EMOTIONAL. AND SO AS SOON AS HE, YOU KNOW, HE WAS KIND OF OUT OF IT BUT HE STARTED TALKING TO ME AND DID A VIDEO CALL WITH THE KIDS BEFORE SURGERY. AND, YEAH, I WAS JUST FEELING SUPER LUCKY AT THAT POINT.>>I’M THANKFUL TO BE HERE BUT THERE’S STILL A LOT OF ANGER AND RESENTMENT. BECAUSE I’M STARTING TO FEEL LIKE THERE WON’T BE ANY CLOSURE. BUT I’M KEEPING MY HOPES UP. THIS IS A SMALL CITY AND A SMALL PROVINCE AND SOMEBODY EVENTUALLY IS GOING TO COME FORWARD. (♪♪♪)>>(indiscernible) WE JOIN D.F.O. SCIENTISTS AS THEY LOOK FOR THE ENDANGERED RIGHT WHALE AND WE’LL TALK TO DR. WATSON WHY THIS AERIAL SURVEY IS SO IMPORTANT. (♪♪ (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE & NOW.” I’M HERE AT HANGAR THREE AT ST. JOHN’S INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT WHERE WE’RE ABOUT TO TAKE TO THE SKIES WITH D.F.O. SCIENTISTS AS THEY PREPARE FOR THEIR MARINE MAMMAL SURVEY. AND JOINING ME NOW IS WHALE EXPERT, JACK LAWSON. SO FIRST OF ALL, DESCRIBE WHAT’S HAPPENING TODAY.>>SO OUR PLAN TODAY IS TO TAKE THIS AIRCRAFT AND MOVE IT DOWN TO PLACENTIA BAY AND WE HAVE LINES THAT WE’LL BE FLYING. WE’RE LOOKING FOR PRIMARILY RIGHT WHALES THAT THE STAGE, BUT ALSO LOOKING FOR SEALS.>>Carolyn: SO HOW CAN YOU SEARCH FOR WHALES FROM THE SKY? ISN’T THAT DIFFICULT?>>IT’S NORMALLY DIFFICULT ON MOST AIRCRAFT BUT THIS IS A SPECIAL AIRCRAFT. IF YOU CAN KIND OF SEE ON THE SIDES THERE’S A COUPLE OF STATIONS THAT HAVE THESE LARGE BUBBLE WINDOWS AND THEY ALLOW THE OBSERVERS TO PUT THEIR HEADS OUT AND TO LOOK STRAIGHT DOWN FROM THE SIDE. IN ADDITION WE HAVE TWO VERY EXPENSIVE LARGE CAMERAS IN THE REAR OF THE AIRCRAFT THAT ARE TAKING CONSTANT PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE WATER BELOW.>>Carolyn: SO A LOT OF ATTENTION PAID RECENTLY TO RIGHT WHALES. WHY ARE YOU FOCUSING ON SEARCHING FOR THEM RIGHT NOW?>>WE’RE OBVIOUSLY INTERESTED IN KNOWING WHERE THESE ANIMALS ARE BECAUSE THAT TELLS US WHERE THEY MIGHT BE AT RISK. IN A SHIPPING AREA OR FIXED FISHING GEAR, WE WANT TO KNOW THAT. SO A LOT OF EFFORT IS PAID IN THE GULF OF ST. LAWRENCE WHERE THE ANIMALS HAVE BEEN STRUCK BY VESSELS OR CAUGHT IN GEAR, BUT THE QUESTION IS, WELL, ARE THEY IN OTHER AREAS? AND SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED AROUND NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR. SO HISTORICALLY WE KNOW THAT RIGHT WHALES HAVE BEEN SEEN AROUND NEWFOUNDLAND AND WE HAVE ACOUSTIC REPORTERS THAT HAVE BEEN SEEING THEM SO THEY’RE AROUND NEWFOUNDLAND.>>Carolyn: CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE STATUS OF THE RIGHT WHALE RIGHT NOW? HOW THREATENED ARE THEY?>>THE SPECIES WAS IN THE THOUSANDS HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO AND THE WHALERS BEGAN TO HUNT FOR VARIOUS SPECIES AND THE RIGHT WHALE WAS A GREAT ANIMAL TO HUNT BECAUSE THEY WERE OFTEN SLOW. AND WHEN KILLED THEY WOULD FLOAT SO THEY WERE THE RIGHT ANIMAL TO CATCH. SO THE NUMBERS DECLINED AS A RESULT OF WHALING. SO WHEN WHALING STOPPED THERE WAS A LOW POPULATION ABUNDANCE. AND EVEN TODAY, EVEN AFTER YEARS OF NOT WHALING IT’S STILL 400.>>Carolyn: THERE WAS A BIT OF GOOD NEWS RECENTLY, WASN’T THERE? FOUR MOTHER AND CALF PAIRS WERE FOUND?>>THAT’S RIGHT. RECENTLY BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MUCH AERIAL SURVEY, AND PEOPLE WATCHING, THEY WERE ABLE TO FIND THE MOTHER/CALF PAIRS. SO WE’RE HAPPY THAT THE FEMALES ARE BREEDING, THAT’S GREAT. BUT WHEN YOU CONSIDER THAT WE HAVE SEEN FOUR CALVES MAYBE AND THERE WAS A TOTAL OF SEVEN BORN THIS YEAR THAT WE KNOW OF AND EIGHT DIED, ADULTS, SO THE BALANCE IS THERE FOR A BIG RECOVERY YET.>>Carolyn: WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR YOU AS SOMEONE WHO DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO THE WELL-BEING OF WHALES TO SEE KIND OF WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THIS PARTICULAR SPECIES RIGHT NOW?>>YEAH, IT’S TOUGH BECAUSE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE ANIMAL ITSELF ITS BEHAVIOUR MAKES IT SORT OF THE MOST — THE RISKIEST ANIMAL TO BE AROUND HUMAN ACTIVITY. SO IT SPENDS TIME AT THE SURFACE. THEY GET INTO WHAT IS THE SURFACE ACTIVE GROUPS OR SAGS AND THEY’RE ROLLING AND SPLASHING AND PAYING ATTENTION TO THEMSELVES AND NOTHING ELSE SO IT SEEMS THAT THEY’RE FREQUENTLY IN THESE SHIPPING LANES. WHEN A SHIP APPROACHES THEY MIGHT SUBMERGE BUT MAYBE JUST A BIT AND LISTEN FOR WHEN THE SHIP IS COMING. SO THEY DO ALL OF THE THINGS THAT PUT THEM AT GREATEST RISK FROM HUMAN ACTIVITIES.>>SO FAR WE’VE HAD EXCELLENT SIGHTING CONDITIONS TODAY. THE SEA IS VERY FLAT. SO IT MAKES FOR GREAT SIGHTING SO WE HAVE SEEN INTERESTING ANIMALS LIKE LEATHER-BACKED SEA TURTLES THAT YOU NORMALLY WOULDN’T SEE. BECAUSE USUALLY WHAT POKES UP IS THE TIP OF THEIR HEAD OR THE BACK OF THEIR SHELLS, SO WE’RE LUCKY TO SEE THOSE. AND WE HAVE SEEN A COUPLE FIN WHALES THAT ARE THE SECOND LARGEST AFTER BLUE WHALES AND A SCATTERING OF DOLPHINS.>>Carolyn: ALL RIGHT, SO I’LL FINISH NOW. HOW DID IT GO?>>I THOUGHT THAT IT WENT VERY WELL. AND WE TESTED OUT OUR NEW SOFTWARE AND CAMERAS AND A FEW TWEAKS FOR TOMORROW WITH ANOTHER TEST FLIGHT. BUT WE SAW TURTLES AND WHALES AND WENT AROUND WITLESS BAY AND OVER NEWFOUNDLAND ON A SUNNY DAY YOU CAN’T GET BETTER THAN THAT.>>Carolyn: SO WHAT IS NEXT?>>TOMORROW WE’LL DO A FORMAL SURVEY OF PLACENTIA BAY, NOW THAT WE KNOW THAT EVERYTHING WORKS AND A FORMAL SURVEY OF THAT. AND WE MIGHT DO IT AGAIN ON SUNDAY BECAUSE WE’RE TRAINING UP NEW OBSERVERS AND THEY’LL HAVE A CHANCE TO PLAY WITH THE SOFTWARE THAT I DID TODAY. AND MONDAY WE START OUR BIG SUR HAVE A.>>Carolyn: EVENTUALLY WHERE WILL ALL OF THIS INFORMATION GO?>>SO THE PLAN IS THAT THIS FALL WE HAVE A MEETING IN ST. JOHN’S IN OCTOBER WHERE WE’LL PRESENT THE RESULTS OF THE AERIAL SURVEYS THAT D.F.O. HAS DONE IN THE GULF, BY ALL DIFFERENT AIRCRAFTS. SO WE’VE GOT THIS ONE AND A SKYMASTERS AND OTHER THINGS, KING AIR FOR FLYING AND WE HAVE TO PUT THAT TOGETHER IN ONE BIG REPORT. AND SAY HERE’S WHERE WE FLEW, WHEN, AND WHAT WE SAW. SO HOPEFULLY AROUND HERE I’M HOPING THAT WE DON’T SEE RIGHT WHALES AROUND NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR. AND THEY’RE AMAZING BUT I’D NOT LIKE TO SEE THEM.>>Carolyn: WHY IS THAT?>>WITH THE RISK OF SHIP STRIKES AND COLLISIONS, I’D LIKE THEM TO STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE.>>Carolyn: SO IT’S A GOOD THING THAT WE DIDN’T SEE RIGHT MATING TODAY?>>YOU’D LOVE TO SEE IT BECAUSE IT’S A RARE SPECIES AND WE HAVE HEARD THEM ON THE ACOUSTIC RECORDERS IN PLACENTIA BAY BUT I’D RATHER NOT SEE THEM IN OUR WATERS.>>Carolyn: WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING US UP. IT WAS A REAL TREA (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELCOME BACK, EVERYONE. AND, ASHLEY, I SEE THAT YOU HAVE FOUND A DELICIOUS WAY TO KEEP COOL ON A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER NIGHT IN BANTERMAN PARK.>>Ashley: YEAH, RUINING MY DINNER OR MY SUPPER, BUT THAT’S OKAY.>>Carolyn: WHAT FLAVOUR DID YOU CHOOSE?>>Ashley: SALTED CARAMEL, MY FAVOURITE.>>Carolyn: VERY NICE.>>Ashley: I HAD STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM TOO, BUT THIS IS DELICIOUS. IT’S GOING TO BE HARD TO EAT DINNER NOW. [laughter] IT IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS OUT HERE. SO MANY PEOPLE ARE ENJOYING THE SUNSHINE BECAUSE AS WE MENTIONED BEFORE, SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE. IT’S SO NICE TO SEE. BUT AS FAR AS WHAT THOSE TEMPERATURES GO, WE TALKED ABOUT THE FORECAST EARLIER AND WHAT WE’RE GOING TO SEE TOMORROW. THIS HEAT IS GOING TO STICK AROUND. SO WE ARE GOING TO SEE THAT RISK OF THOSE THUNDERSTORMS AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF TOMORROW. AND THEN EVENTUALLY THINGS WILL CLEAR OUT. SO LET’S SEE THE TEMPERATURES ABOUT 27°, 28° FOR GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR. AND THEN AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE WEST COAST YOU’RE GOING TO STAY WITH THAT HEAT AS WELL. AND PRETTY HUMID TOMORROW, UP THROUGH LABRADOR, NOT THE CASE THOUGH, THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO DIP SIGNIFICANTLY. 10° IS THE AFTERNOON HIGH FOR CARTWRIGHT. AND HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, 15°. AND THEN LAB CITY, SITTING AROUND 20° FOR TOMORROW. AND AS WE HEAD INTO WEDNESDAY’S FORECAST, LOOK AT THOSE TEMPERATURES, ANOTHER HOT DAY, ESPECIALLY IF THROUGH CENTRAL AND THE WEST COAST, ANYWHERE FROM 29° TO POTENTIALLY 30° WITH THAT HUMIDITY AND LIKELY WILL FEEL CLOSER TO 33°, 34°. AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE AVALON, SUNSHINE FOR MOST PART, OVERNIGHT WE COULD SEE A RISK OF SHOWERS BUT 22°, SHOULD BE THE AFTERNOON HIGH. AND THEN UP THROUGH LABRADOR, AGAIN, HANGING ON TO THESE COOLER TEMPERATURES, ONLY REACHING THE SINGLE DIGITS, ESSENTIALLY ALONG THE COAST. YOU COULD SEE DOWN THROUGH THE NORTHERN PENINSULA THOSE TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO START TO DIP DOWN. 12°, AS AN AFTERNOON HIGH FOR WEDNESDAY. THAT’S WELL BELOW SEASONAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. AND THEN LAB CITY, SITTING AT 18°. NOW LOOKING AHEAD OVER THE NEXT FIVE DAYS FOR ST. JOHN’S AND EASTERN NEWFOUNDLAND, GENERALLY SITTING IN THE 20° RANGE. SO WE’RE GOING TO STAY THERE AND THEN STAY HUMID ESSENTIALLY THROUGH THURSDAY. IT DOES LOOK LIKE THAT RISK OF SHOWERS WILL MOVE IN FOR FRIDAY. AND THEN FOR SATURDAY, SUNSHINE RIGHT NOW AND 22°. SO IT LOOKS LIKE A LOVELY WEEKEND AND THOSE OVERNIGHT LOWS ARE STILL IN THE MID-TO-HIGH TEENS AS WELL. THROUGH CENTRAL, THINGS GET MORE UNSETTLED. SO ESSENTIALLY HAVE THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS THROUGH THE FORECAST RIGHT INTO SATURDAY. IT WON’T BE A WASHOUT, STILL LOOKING AT PLENTY OF SUNSHINE THROUGH THE DAY. BUT LOOK AT THOSE TEMPERATURES, 28° TO 30° BY THURSDAY. IT’S STARTING TO SEE A COOLING TREND WHICH WILL LIKELY BE WELCOME FOR THE WEEKEND. AND THEN FOR WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND, SIMILAR TEMPERATURES. NOT QUITE AS WARM THOUGH. 28° BY WEDNESDAY. THURSDAY, THAT RAIN IS MOVING IN, 23°, AND THEN SITTING BETWEEN THE 20°, 22° RANGE FOR THE WEEKEND. WITH THAT CHANCE OF SHOWERS. BUT, AGAIN, SUN PEEKS OUT AT TIMES. FOR EASTERN LABRADOR, THERE’S YOUR TEMPERATURES IN THE TEENS. SO GOING TO STAY COOL ACROSS THE BOARD, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, PEEKS OF SUN, WITH THAT CHANCE OF SHOWERS. AND THEN IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL STAY GREY TOWARDS THE REST OF THE WEEKEND AND THEN THAT’S THE CASE FOR WESTERN LABRADOR AS THE TEMPERATURES DIP. 20°, AND 18° ON WEDNESDAY AND THE TEMPERATURES IN THE TEAMS TOWARDS THE WEEKEND. SO WE’LL SHOW YOU THE WEATHER PHOTO TODAY AND IT’S A GORGEOUS ONE. I’M GUESSING BY THE FACT THAT I HAD SO MANY PHOTOS LIKE THIS FROM THE WEEKEND THAT THIS IS WHAT EVERYBODY WAS DOING, ENJOYING THAT WEATHER. SO TAKE A GUESS WHERE THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN AND I’LL TELL YOU AFTER THE BREAK.>>Carolyn: THANKS, ASHLEY.>>>TURNING NOW TO NATIONAL NEWS AND THE INTENSIVE SEARCH FOR TWO TEEN FUGITIVES HAS SHIFTED SLIGHTLY WESTWARD FROM GILLAM, MANITOBA. A POSSIBLE SIGHTING OF THE PAIR YESTERDAY NEAR A GARBAGE DUMP IN THE MORE ISOLATED COMMUNITY OF YORK LANDING SPARKED THE REDIRECTION OF THE SEARCH.>>THE OFFICERS SEARCHED THE YORK LANDING AREA THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT AND THEY CONTINUE THEIR EFFORTS TODAY. THE ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE IS ALSO ASSISTING TODAY WITH THE SEARCH. OUR OFFICERS HAVE NOT MADE CONTACT WITH THE INDIVIDUALS AND SO WE ARE NOT YET IN A POSITION TO CONFIRM THAT THESE ARE THE WANTED SUSPECTS.>>Carolyn: IN THE SUMMER YORK LANDING IS ACCESSIBLE ONLY BY FERRY OR BY AIR. WHILE IT’S JUST 90 KILOMETRES FROM GILLAM, THERE’S NO DIRECT ROAD. THE DENSE BUSH IN THE AREA HAS BEEN CUT BACK FOR RAIL AND HYDRO LINES AND MAKING THE CROSS-COUNTRY TRIP POSSIBLE, THOUGH CHALLENGING. KAM McLEOD AND BYER ARE WANTED FOR THREE MURDERS. THE AUTHORITIES ARE WARNING TO AVOID APPROACHING THE SUSPECTS AND TO CALL POLICE IF SPOTTED. (♪♪♪) (♪♪♪)>>Carolyn: WELCOME BACK TO “HERE & NOW.” AND WE’LL HEAD BACK TO BANTERMAN PARK WHERE ASHLEY IS LIVE TONIGHT ON THIS GLORIOUSLY WARM SUNNY EVENING.

I’M JOINED BY TYLER HERE WHO JUST PLAYED. DID YOU GUYS WIN?>>WE WON BY DEFAULT.>>Ashley: BY DEFAULT?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THE SUMMER WEATHER SO FAR?>>IT’S WARM. [laughter]>>Ashley: IS THIS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF WEATHER TO PLAY BALL IN?>>YEAH.>>Ashley: HOW MANY GAMES HAVE YOU WON SO FAR?>>I’M NOT SURE.>>Ashley: ARE YOU PLAYING ANY OTHER SPORTS OTHER THAN BALL THIS SUMMER?>>I’M PLAYING BASKETBALL AND HOCKEY.>>Ashley: SORRY?>>BASKETBALL AND HOCKEY.>>Ashley: WHY DO YOU HAVE TWO BATS IN YOUR BAG?>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW. I JUSTUSE ONE WITH THE BIG BARRD MY FRIENDS LIKE THE OTHER ONE.>>Ashley: OH, THAT’S NICE. THAT’S WHAT I LIKE, WHEN MY FRIENDS BRING THE BAT THAT I LIKE.
