12:12 am
been peaceful. they have very strong opinions and they want to make sure the government hears them. they are frustrated. most of the people we have spoken to say they are here because they want to see an end to all covid restrictions and all covid mandates they say that means no masks, no vaccine mandates, no indoor dining restrictions, and they say they will stay out here blocking the streets, many of them sleeping in tents or in their trucks until they see an end to those mandates. the prime minister has said that this does not represent canada, that these people are not representing most of canada and that they are in his view the fringe people here say they don't believe that's true at all they say they do represent many people here and that term "the fringe" has almost become a bit of a term, a rallying cry if you will we saw one person walking with a shirt on that said the fringe. back to you. who do you believe the kremlin is adamant, vladimir

we spoke with the director there and he said that these tanks that they're producing, they're updating, are just about as good as anything they would confront on an open battlefield against the russians but open battlefield again, with the superior air power and naval power of the russians, a lot of the defense analysts and actually former defense officials that i spoke to said the main strategy here is going to be an insurgency against an occupying force that is going to be the modus operandi if the russians decide to invade. peloton is facing an uphill climb now. they have a new boss thousands of people laid off how it got to this point, and can the company work its way back the homicide investigation that led police to the apartment where amir locke lay sleeping and where police shot and killed him. today an arrest in that investigation, and the family ties that link it all together and hyundai and kia issuing a warning to almost half a million car owners
