Global National: Sept. 30, 2022 | National Day for Truth and Reconciliation honoured across Canada

From Global News.

Special events took place in Canada’s capital to mark Canada’s second annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Global’s Abigail Bimman has more on the message and meaning behind this federal statutory holiday, also known as Orange Shirt Day.

Ukrainian military intelligence claims the risk of Russia using nuclear weapons is now "very high." Today, Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelenskyy announced a move to fast-track an application for Ukrainian NATO membership. As Redmond Shannon reports, these events mark further escalation in the conflict.

In the U.S., Hurricane Ian has made its second landfall, this time in South Carolina. It’s been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone since first hitting as a category one hurricane. But there is still major flooding and extensive damage. More than two hundred thousand people are without power and the storm is barrelling north with the threat of more high winds and powerful storm surges. Jackson Proskow is in hard-hit Fort Meyers — a once pristine place, now in shambles.

From Hurricane Fiona to Hurricane Ian, destruction has potentially historic proportions, devastating Atlantic Canada and parts of eastern U.S. Even for those spared a direct hit, the ripple effect on supply chains may still be felt. Anne Gaviola explains.

Twice a week, a healing circle is put on by the Warriors Against Violence Society. The support isn’t for victims of violence, but for the ones who offend. Heather Yourex-West explains.

Finally, a new B.C. program is designed to help Indigenous people disconnected from their communities to return home. It was created by a woman who was adopted at an early age, and wasn’t able to confirm she was indigenous until she was an adult. Neetu Garcha reports.
