general note
Part of a series which presents stories from news coverage on the National in more depth and detail than given during the actual broadcast.
Host: Michael Serapio.
Canada and the Jobless Crisis: In December, Canada’s unemployment rate rose to 7.5 per cent, its highest level since April. Experts said Canada’s economy appears to be stalling, and the situation is particularly bleak in the country’s two largest provinces, Quebec and Ontario. In this News in Review story, we examine the troubling situation and look at how two Ontario cities are trying to recover. (Length: 14:52)
The Bloodbath in Syria: For almost a year hundreds of thousands of people have been staging massive protests in the streets of Syria. They are demanding the resignation of the country’s ruler, Bashar al-Assad. But his regime’s response has been a bloody one, and thousands of protesters have been gunned down. In this News in Review story we look at the Syrian revolution and at what’s being done to try to stop the killing. (Length: 14:11)
The Emergency in Attawapiskat: In late October, the First Nations community of Attawapiskat declared a state of emergency. Many residents of the isolated reserve in Northern Ontario were living in tents, trailers, and temporary shelters, even as winter closed in on them. In this News in Review story we look at the desperate state of that community and why it needs help so badly. (Length: 14:15)
The Horror and Fear of Honour Killing: A high-profile murder trial in Kingston, Ontario, has drawn attention to the isolated but growing phenomenon of so-called honour killing. It’s a crime where cultural clashes can lead some families to murder their own relatives. In this News in Review story we examine this sensitive subject and look at how some Canadian women are living in fear. (Length: 12:41)
