People celebrating Lunar New Year at this dance hall near Los Angeles it is the worst mass shooting since May's school tragedy in Uvalde Texas now another American Community left with prayers and tears and very few answers Paul Hunter brings us the latest developments including an act of likely life-saving bravery caught on camera the silent security video obtained by NBC News is at once breathtaking and sobering The Man Without The Wool Cap who runs a California dance studio wrestles with the man now accused in America's latest Mass killing he's grabbed the man's semi-automatic assault pistol in the panicked near unreal desperate scramble I lunged at him with both my hands I was able to pull the gun away from him shove him aside create some distance point the gun at him intimidate him shot him and say get the hell out here I'll shoot get away go you have 10 unresponsive inside and you have a few that are still pretty the encounter came after a massacre Saturday night about 20 minutes away at another dance studio in this predominantly Asian neighborhood near Los Angeles multiple people dead most over the age of 60.

The suspect was himself later found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wounds who can Tran the man fighting to get his gun back in that video was 72 said to have frequented the Dancehall he'd once met his now ex-wife there but little else is known of him as flowers and candles now grow outside the dance studio a site so familiar in this country comes as well a familiar question why did this happen I know that my individual officers would like to know why I know the families want to know why the why is a big part of this the problem is we may never know the why and we have to work past that investigators say they've recovered multiple guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition it's a killing with no known motive just misery once again for so many Paul Hunter CBC News Washington and more deadly violence in California tonight police are investigating a pair of related shootings that killed at least seven people so a suspect is now in custody after the attacks in the city of Half Moon Bay that's South of San Francisco four people shot dead at a mushroom farm three others at a trucking business and another shooting at a school in the U.S earlier today two students are dead and a School employee seriously wounded in Des Moines Iowa the incident was definitely targeted it was not random there's there's nothing random about this it was certainly a targeted incident the shooting happened at a school program for at-risk youth in the words of police it was supposed to be a safe space for students police have three suspects in custody four members of The Oath Keepers militia group have been convicted over the January 6 attack in Washington the four were found guilty of seditious conspiracy that Civil War era law prohibits plotting to overthrow or destroy the U.S government the group's leader Stuart Rhodes was convicted in November of the same crime a sentencing date has not yet been set back in this country this Ontario couple is speaking out tonight about what Air Canada did with their so-called lost luggage but it had an air tag inside so as Ali shiason shows us they were watching when the airline sent their bag off to charity here we go Tick Tock I'm updating you on my luggage being lost for the last four months let's take a trip Nikita Reese and her husband Tom fly from their honeymoon in Greece and land in Montreal they recheck their bags for their connecting flight to Toronto but Tom's bag doesn't make it not to worry they have an air tag inside the luggage and they can see that it's at a baggage facility near the Montreal Airport we were like oh awesome maybe it's getting processed Reese is contacted by Air Canada but it's not the call she's expecting your luggage is deemed lost will be receiving an e-transfer in the amount of 2200 she accepts the money and can still see the bag pinging from the facility in Montreal after 31 days they get an alert and see that Tom's luggage is on the move to Etobicoke near Pearson Airport my husband messaged me and he got really excited he's like it's moving it's on the move it's in Toronto it's on like the highway to their surprise it's not taken to the airport but to a public storage locker Nikita's husband pays a visit she started snooping because there was about I think he said three quarters of an inch between the door that you could see through so he took his flashlight until he found uh Florida wall like literally luggage to the door turns out the locker is owned by a third-party company that Air Canada sends lost an unclaimed luggage to which eventually gets donated to charity in a statement to CBC News Air Canada confirms quote bags whose ownership cannot be determined can be disposed of after 90 days which we do through a third-party company which does make donations to charity but your bag was ready to be donated after just 31 days 31 so if that's in their policy they breached their policy Air Canada quote yes this particular bag was transferred prematurely in error and we have followed this up internally the airline arranged for her bag to be dropped off today Nikita isn't sure this would have happened without taking to Tick-Tock and eventually the news but if there's one takeaway if you are traveling get an ear tag as for Nikita and Tom they're hoping at least some of the contents are intact there's two bottles of red wine and they're calling my name Ali chasson CBC News Toronto a part of the travel stress over the last few years was the arrive can app there was a lot of griping when that app launched near the beginning of the pandemic now there's grumbling about who got paid what to make it as Rafi bujikanian tells us even the prime minister is calling the process inefficient it's hardly even used anymore but today Justin Trudeau was forced to admit there were big problems with the making of the arrive can app this is a practice that seems highly illogical and inefficient and I have made sure that the clerk of the privy council is looking into procurement practices to make sure that we're getting value for money the Globe and Mail reported this morning that in 2020 the federal government hired a two-person Staffing firm called GC strategies it in turn hired six other companies to build the app arrive can allow Travelers entering Canada to disclose vaccination status and other pandemic related information the government came to us and asked us to put together a team to help them carry out their covert objectives GC strategies wasn't talking today but in the fall it was called before a parliamentary committee looking into the usefulness of the app the company said it built about 9 million of the 54 million and the government is known to have spent on a rifkan every individual we use was approved government security clearances were verified and given their specific tasks and deliverables by the government today the globe said documents its scene show the other six companies were paid 8.3 million dollars in total to develop the app I find it unconscionable that this was farmed out in this way the NDP said the project did not need a middleman to hire the other firms and the Prime Minister should have been aware of what was going on I think it's illogical to accept that he didn't know more details around this particular file none of the companies hired by GC strategies responded to our request for comment the arrivecan app still exists but it's no longer mandatory fewer than one in five Travelers used it during the month of October when it was made optional Ottawa the government of Newfoundland and Labrador is moving to end a private ambulance strike it tabled a bill to declare the ambulance system in a central service striking workers gathered at the legislature response retirement we want better pay we just want what everyone else is getting in other jobs about 120 ambulance workers have been off the job since Friday CBC News has been reporting on properties that have been sold without the owner's knowledge now it appears that racket is growing and as far morally reports it seems there may be ties to organized crime that's a red flag right away okay Brian King has sifted through countless fake IDs allegedly used to commit real estate fraud the private investigator has been hired by a title insurance company to find those responsible right now we have 30 active files at least 30.

And that's just here in the GTA yeah many of King's cases involve individuals using fake ID to impersonate a legitimate homeowner they then place a new or second mortgage on the home and take off with the proceeds he also has cases where people use fake ID to rent homes once they get the keys others impersonate the real homeowners and sell the property again taking off with the money typically it's organized crime that's behind it the people that actually are front facing on the frauds people using the IDS posing as the homeowners are not the ultimate people that are receiving the funds they're usually paid stand-ins of King's 30 plus cases four involve a home sold without the owner's knowledge but there are more than that there are three other title insurance companies in Canada in addition to the one king works for they step in when these types of frauds happen to cover costs and get the home back to the true owner these companies tell CBC news they two have seen cases of stolen homes and not just here in Toronto they're largely happening in the greater Toronto area and the Greater Vancouver area experts say the number of cases started picking up in late 2019 an estimate title insurance companies have lost around 200 million dollars in title in mortgage fraud cases since then we went from zero of those claims to now many dozens of those claims it's not sustainable over the long term so we really need the whole real estate industry working together to weed out these fraudsters we're seeing a level of sophistication in that area that we've never seen before it's very organized given the volume of cases some are wondering why there's been so little attention we were told over and over and over again that we were the only people this was such a rare situation Melissa Walsh's 95 year old great uncle nearly lost his home in Toronto's East End after these fake IDs were used to rent his home someone else then impersonated him to list it for sale during that this has happened to potentially over 30 30 other families is hard to wrap your head around and again I don't understand why this hasn't been discussed meanwhile behind the scenes but the recent rise in cases investigators like King have their work cut out for them so it's a a very painstaking process to try and understand who's behind it quietly tracking down those responsible for a sophisticated scan that's growing so far this is a stuff of nightmare for homeowners concrete tips what can he do well Adrian at the heart of these cases is identity theft and one of the things that I've been hearing from experts is the importance of keeping your government ID safe so if you're renting out your home one of the things to consider is maybe making sure no one else has access to your mail but the big one like the really big one that everyone talked about is title insurance so if you own property and you don't have to maybe it's something you want to consider getting if you do find yourself targeted by one of these scams it puts the onus on the insurance company to do all the heavy lifting to make sure you get your house back and it covers the cost and if you're the buyer make sure that you don't lose any money in the transaction okay far I know you have a lot more stories on this to come we'll be watching thank you you're welcome Federal liberals have begun a three-day cabinet strategy session and Topping a long list of challenges the affordability crisis a crumbling Health Care system and keeping the NDP on their side here's David Cochran and it's all to go today yes please whenever the cabinet goes on the road the Prime Minister likes to make his presence known and so a lunch stop for Justin Trudeau as his cabinet kicks off a three-day retreat in Hamilton where the High Cost of Living especially for things like food are at the top of the agenda we know that more than ever what is happening in the world is affecting Canadians at home when Putin decides to invade Ukraine or when a virus spreads around the world Canadians feel it and obviously right now they're feeling it at the pump and when they do their groceries the cabinet will hold high-level discussions on the state of the economy with the hope that interest rates have hit their Peak and any downturn in jobs or growth will be brief and shallow we have a look to work on I think we've done amazing things concerning social Equity to support those who need it most in this time of inflation they will also take stock of their political arrangement with the NDP it's supposed to run until 2025 so long as the Liberals live up to the Bergen they've met the first test of expanding Dental Care the next test is to make progress on pharmacare great to be in Hamilton lots of work to do when will you meet with the premiers at the top of that to-do list is striking a deal with the premiers on health funding over the past week sources at all levels have reported progress on a deal the framework an across-the-board increase in transfers backstop by a series of one-on-one deals to meet the specific needs of each province and territory the plan is to seal the deal at a first Minister's meeting the question is when there is significant Goodwill and the reason is that we all serve the same people for the same purposes with the same dollars coming from the same Pockets so we are increasingly aligned I'm optimistic that we're making progress and at the right moment as the Prime Minister has always said he'll sit down with his fellow first ministers so David I'm pretty sure some people will want that set down sooner rather than later what sort of timeline are you looking at yeah Adrian you remember when we spoke last week the premiers wanted to get this done by the middle of February they were so Keen to have a meeting they even offered Super Bowl Sunday to the Prime Minister if he was available what I'm told now is that the prime minister's office is trying to organize a date a fair bit earlier than that the path forward for a deal is pretty clear all sides want to get this done before they get into their budget Cycles so I expect we'll get some clarity on a timeline here at this cabinet Retreat if not on Tuesday directly from the prime minister at his wrap-up press conference on Wednesday all right we'll be watching David Cochran thank you thank you the Canadian military has cleared Major General Danny Forte of sexual misconduct after doing its own review of a case that's already made it to a civilian Criminal Court a Quebec judge acquitted 410 last month of sexual assault related to the alleged incident when he was a Cadet Forte was removed from his role leading Canada's covid-19 vaccine rollout when the allegations surfaced Alberta's Justice Ministry says a search of a million government emails revealed no evidence of contact between staff in the premier's office and the Alberta Crown prosecution service Alberta's Premier asked for the search following CBC news reporting last week sources told CBC news that a staffer sent emails to prosecutors about cases connected to the Coots border blockade and protests the CBC spokesperson says the organization stands by its journalism turning to the war in Ukraine now European Union foreign ministers agreed to release another 500 million dollars in military aid for Kiev but again discussions were dominated by the question of Tanks Ukraine has to win this war and we will support on the best possible way the EU was unified a more military aid and optimistic Germany would allow the export of leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine but there's still no definitive word from Berlin Kiev says it needs hundreds of Tanks to turn the tide at first glance the war has been frozen this winter but that's deceptive there are daily and deadly fights all along the front including near the russian-held city of cremina and especially near Bak moot that's where Russia has slowly moved past Ukrainian defenses the situation for the city itself getting more precarious Russia may be suffering losses in the advance but it's also wearing down Ukrainian troops the regular updates from those defending the city delivered with fewer Smiles now foreign [Music] civilians are more blunt only fools are not afraid says this resident Ukraine is expecting more desolation and danger in the coming weeks no matter how many tanks it gets Pakistan is slowly getting its power back after the lights went out for the entire country the national electrical grid broke down and this is the depth of winter Sasha petrasek shows us how people are coping as night fell much of Pakistan remained pitch black roads darkened cell phones glowing but disconnected no internet either we've been cut off from the world since this morning he says what lights glowed were powered by generators sputtering as they have all day Pakistan's used to sporadic outages with demand more than its shaky infrastructure can handle but this country of almost a quarter billion people isn't used to this it shut down major generating plants overnight to save money in the morning voltage fluctuations knocked out the National Grid says Pakistan's energy Minister transmission dispatch company we're sending teams across the country Brook says by the grace of Allah power will be restored by tonight meanwhile workshops remain out of work if electricity doesn't come back soon it'll be a total disaster he says public transit in Lahore ground to a halt passengers were thrown onto the tracks and outside a Karachi hospital patients were treated on the sidewalks I have to keep bringing my sick relative in and out of the building he says trying to find X-rays and other equipment in the dark hallways after Nightfall parts of the country did start to see the light power reappearing unexpectedly here and there as Pakistan struggles to get its grid going Sasha Petra CBC News Toronto Vancouver Canucks fans may have seen it coming the firing of a popular head coach but many are questioning the way it was handled hard to imagine we will forget the chance of Bruce there it is anytime soon the growing outpouring of sympathy for Bruce Boudreau next many drink to feel better but does it really improve our moods that's lift of mood um is replaced by tightness fatigue the science around alcohol and our brains and an Ontario hotel has a little fun in the snow we do tell clients it's used at your own risk the display that's becoming Roadside Attraction we are back into it thank you well that's just pretty miserable residents in Southern New Brunswick busy clearing their driveways tonight a heavy snowstorm is expected to drop up to 25 centimeters by tomorrow morning many schools were closed today the third snow day for students in the past week the Vancouver Canucks are facing some public backlash after the firing of head coach Bruce Boudreau Suzanne de Silva shows us not the firing itself but they're mad over how it happened another new coach another chapter for the Canucks a hockey team desperate to change its story and there is an emotional Bruce Boudreau behind the camera everyone knew this would be Bruce boudreau's final game [Applause] the fans no surprise with the team 14 points out of the playoffs but how the move was made has angered many fans and we have to play within a stronger structure that's the team's president offering public criticism aimed at the coach a pattern Jim Rutherford has repeated throughout the season then when asked last week about looking for Replacements this bluntness I have called a few people to talk to people yes it left Boudreaux in an awkward spot over and over again I was fired once in the middle of the season and by the way they haven't fired me yet [Laughter] until Saturday when he was the level of Cruelty which I think comes comes out of arrogance and incompetence was among the most poorly handled firings I can remember seeing in sports to add insult this was Bruce Boudreau she's a lovable wisecracking funny humble guy who pretty much everybody in the sport likes he could and fans did too I think it's really uh Costless he received a lot of love while he was here seeing him as a symbol of ongoing frustration in this market against team ownership I think that just so frustrating for people that the owners think that there's a quick fix here there rarely is people in this town are ready for a rebuild now promises off and on the ice to turn things around so I've decided that I need to zip it I'm not going to talk about the team not been good enough to be honest with you and kind of left the coaches out to to dry with many fans and analysts saying even more changes are going to be needed Susanna de Silva CBC News Vancouver there's been lots of recent talk about how cutting back on alcohol can improve your physical health but scientists say it can also improve your mood since stopping drinking I've noticed that again things are just a lot more balanced tonight a closer look at the effects of booze on your brain plus the struggle to keep the lights on in Puerto Rico and the growing anger over it we did not expect this at all to happen after Hurricane Fiona a CBC News investigation into why some are laying the blame on a company run by a Canadian the national takes you deeper into the story shaping our world [Music] [Music] well booze and your brain it can be a bit of a complicated relationship but times a drink can feel like it's helping your mental health other times it is clearly not so what's actually going on there Lauren Pelley heads to the expert scientists and the people who've quit alcohol completely who say their brains are better for it foreign this is the only kind of drink Jessica Hurst buys these days a chai latte before work but for many years drinking alcohol was also part of her day-to-day life I was like stressed at work or if I was feeling social anxieties about going to a party or going out or something like that it would always help and then there would be a high and then it would be such a crash after yeah I think last year the Toronto residents began wondering how drinking was impacting her existing anxiety and depression and she decided to cut alcohol out I still deal with the date-stay anxieties and the things that still exist with those diagnosis but it's a lot more manageable it's no secret a night of drinking can be hard on the brain from mood changes to headaches a growing body of research also suggests there could be long-term impacts on cognition brain aging and mental health alcohol in the short term can make us feel good most of us know that but scientists Jim Stockwell says it technically acts as a depressant for the body's central nervous system that lift of mood is replaced by tiredness fatigue and the anxiety returning now what happens when we drink more heavily is that cycle is accelerated and exaggerated the World Health Organization says alcohol use is a risk factor for mental health conditions while a 2022 paper in the journal Nature Communications linked moderate drinking to changes in brain matter similar to aging even for people consuming an average of only one to two daily drinks we also now know from population studies that people who drink more unfortunately are at greater risk of developing dementia this is the Peterborough Center this Hamilton Ontario researcher uses a lab styled like a bar to study how people react to different doses of alcohol he says it's tough to know the safe amount of drinks per week to avoid any alcohol-related brain changes but says any efforts to cut back are worthwhile we should think about brain health the way we think about every other kind of Health you know heart disease health cancer risk health I think that in many ways the brain is the most important organ insofar as it is Who We Are oh you would like something wouldn't you Nigel Bose has long battled with his brain depression is a big part of his life and for many years so was alcohol I found it funny when people said you know what you shouldn't drink because alcohol is a depressant well it didn't make me feel bad right it actually made me feel a lot better I I but those benefits he found were short-lived while the hangovers and regrets began piling up and a few years ago he gave up drinking for good I'm still gonna have issues that I had before when I was drinking but I can solve them or at least I can try to solve something drinking didn't make his mental health issues go away but it brought bows more mental Clarity ironically even though I feel more of my depression and I feel more of my anxiety and I feel more of those parts they don't hurt and that makes me happy so Lorna it strikes me that the people you met I mean it's really hard they cut out drinking entirely but what about the people who just cut it out a little bit well the scientists I spoke to said there's still a benefit to doing that it's never too late to reassess your drinking habits and it's never too late to gain some of those benefits from cutting back a bit so that means dry January may lead to drive February for some people yeah I mean let's be realistic if you've been a heavier Drinker for many years a month of giving it up isn't going to magically fix any of the brain damage that might have been happening but scientists say the brain is a really flexible organ it can almost prepare itself to some extent over time I'm actually doing dry January this year myself I've done it before anecdotally I can say that I've been really sleeping pretty well so you know it's worth just considering taking that month off and just seeing how you feel almost like a mini scientific experiment all right Lauren Pelley thank you you're welcome well Puerto Rico no stranger to power outages but there is growing outrage over blackouts and breakdowns how long were people without power you'd say like like 45 days after Fiona up next the CBC News investigation looks at a company run by a Canadian that's become the focal point of anger in that country [Music] well Puerto Rico has one of the least reliable electrical systems in the world subject to all manner of breakdowns and extended blackouts a private company run by a Canadian and half owned by a Calgary firm is supposed to be changing that but as Jonathan Gatehouse reports Luma Energy's efforts to keep the lights on have ended up making them a political lightning rod wow how beautiful is this it's a great view but we need to see the light we need to see the light we didn't need that hope that everything is going to change every season of the hurricane we're getting scared blackout to plague the island for decades the worst of them lasting almost a year following 2017's devastating hurricane Maria the category 4 storm that killed thousands traditional response has been to mop up move on but two years ago Puerto Rico's government took a different path hiring a private company to find a permanent fix for its power issues Luma energy half owned by Alberta's Atco and run by Canadian CEO Wayne stensby El primer anniversarial and Spanish is a work in progress but as former head of atco's Electric Division surely he'd know how to keep the lights on the firm has years of experience building and repairing power infrastructure but western Canada is a long way from Puerto Rico the coastal city of Aguadilla mayor Julio Rodan says he gets at least 25 calls a day from constituents without electricity often in neighborhoods where the fix isn't easy you can't see oh yeah this area the sense of what the lines are like you can't see the lines here this is a spectacular huh that's quite a mess luma's first big test came with hurricane Fiona last September things quickly went off the rails the power went out and stayed out lawyer and Community Advocate Ruth Santiago still doesn't understand why we did not expect this at all to happen after Hurricane Fiona it was quite a surprise to have what was mostly a tropical storm that was along the southern coast as a category one hurricane to take down the whole electric grid that was incredible the Fiona passport yeah this is the area is going to be more effective how long were people without power we'd say like like 45 days after Fiona 45 days yeah [Music] but it isn't just the Fallout from the storm 18 months into a 15-year two billion dollar deal there's anger in the streets outages are more frequent and last longer say customers and when the power comes back on surges caused fires and Fry appliances while bills have doubled leaving Puerto Ricans paying some of the highest rates in the world fairly or not Wayne stensby has become Public Enemy Number One a portrait of you over there they were targeted Bad Bunny Puerto Rico's Global Superstar his latest album features a track called el epigon [Music] [Applause] the blackout president [Music] foreign [Music] [Applause] putting up four of his deputies instead welcome to portrayal thank you Jonathan Gatehouse nice to meet you they say the company's response to Fiona was exemplary with extra help brought in from their American co-parent Qantas services and that 90 percent of customers had service restored within 12 days this is the first time ever that I see an effort like um thinking about the customer first making sure and taking care of them not everything went smoothly however in the hardest hit communities where outages dragged on for weeks frustrated Mayors like Rodan formed their own brigades of ex-utility workers to repair the damage tensions flared over his so-called shark team I was Luma reacted to the shark team ah say I say Luma they said they're going to arrest me and I say I'm gonna I'm gonna send you my pin location that you can't arrest me right now [Music] there's a number of Mayors who say that they've been threatened with legal action they've been threatened with arrest because they created their own brigades to restore power we made clear to them the dangers of working on the electrical system without certified Personnel I am not aware of we threatened arrestings we are not a government I mean we are not a anybody Puerto Rico's government has been walking a fine line defending luma's contract while criticizing its performance at one point the legislature tried to have stems be arrested for contempt and illegal fight over access to company documents after Fiona Governor Pedro pierre-luisi demanded he stepped down yet months later stensby remains a clear message says Ruth Santiago who wants the deal canceled I think Uma really thinks it's above the law and that it can do anything here Puerto Rico does not have to be a place of unmitigated disaster they're just going to rebuild a centralized system that we really is not going to work for Puerto Rico we can really do better and unfortunately Luma energy is is the major obstacle in achieving that as you're aware there's been a lot of criticism even from the government quarters in recent months I'm wondering if you feel that maybe it's time for a Puerto Rican leadership team to take over this company Luma is not about one person it's not about master standsby or Mario or me or any of individuality so you're thinking you're saying that it's irrelevant who leads the company no I'm saying that you have experienced and qualified people and as you can see with the result the outcome speaks for itself [Music] it says public anger is misplaced the rate increases are due to fuel costs for generating stations which they don't control meanwhile 10 000 street lights have been repaired and 3 800 polls replaced and 6 billion worth of U.S government-funded infrastructure projects will soon be underway people here need to have a stronger system they need to have more results they have more confidence in their system unfortunately it takes longer than any of us wanted to and certainly longer than customers want it to although the rhetoric doesn't always match reality this San Juan Elementary School less than 15 minutes from Luna headquarters has been without power for more than two months is electricity Luma says the electrical issues are internal and have nothing to do with them after we asked about the situation the school hired private electricians and the lights were finally back on the day after our visit the next storm season is still months away more time to strengthen the grid but maybe not enough to repair the damage to luma's reputation the Luma had to leave they don't do the job in Puerto Rico you know they don't do the correct job they need men more employee they need to to have a good relationship with the mayor of the city working together like a team a desire for a flick of the switch solution in a place where power comes and goes so Jonathan given the complaints given the trouble why does Luma energy want to be in Puerto Rico and take this on well they say they believe they can make a difference but let's make no mistake here it's also a business and they think they can make some money here the two billion dollar 15-year contract that's just a start the estimates are that the total cost of rebuilding and modernizing Puerto Rico's grid is going to be around 20 billion U.S so that's 26 billion Canadian so lots of money on the table not just for Luma but also potentially its parent companies we asked their Canadian owner Atco if they're interested in bidding they said yes potentially we are but Luma is going to be on the scene as I said until 2038 and under scrutiny for a long time to come all right Jonathan Gatehouse thank you you're welcome coming up it is already one of the most expensive films ever made in India and it's hitting it big with moviegoers and critics alike the Oscar buzz for the movie that has audiences on their feet plus is this a valet parking job gone wrong or a unique Roadside Attraction find out in Our Moment well the Oscar nominations are announced tomorrow morning and some Canadians may be hoping to hear their names like Brendan Fraser the actor who stars in the whale maybe Sarah Paulie who directed the film women talking or this guy James Cameron whose film Avatar the way of water broke some big box office records so some critics also expect a surprise Oscar announcement for a South Indian film called rrr one of the most expensive films ever made in India it's brought in more than 200 million dollars globally as Eli Glassner tells us it has fans and critics buzzing watching RR is not your normal night at the movies at this La screening the audience stormed the stage we just saw everyone starting to rush up and we're like we we have to do it it just it caught on it it was it was infectious [Applause] this is the power of RR a movie smashing records and winning over audiences worldwide it was fascinating to see to see the audience love a movie in the way the Indians love it and not just love it passively this story generating all this passion follows two Freedom Fighters battling the colonial Powers it comes from SS rajamuli a director known for his audacious Cinema style whether it's these large oversized animals jumping right at you or you see one man fencing off like 500 bodies it's just incredible visual storytelling part of what makes RR special is where it's from most Bollywood films come from Mumbai where the language spoken is Hindi but RR is a Telugu language film from Southern India's Hollywood region Top Gun would never have like a dance battle in the middle of the movie and it's and it and it worked you know this Guelph student saw the film five times and will never forget her first experience but instantly like the second it started playing the adrenaline was up and it kind of just stayed up the whole time my heart was beating really fast and I just I was like on the edge of my seat now she's spreading the word and diving into rajamouli's other films like IGA the first thing I did when I got back to Guelph was watch ego with my roommate I just I brought many people into it now RR is winning over fans like James Cameron and racking up wins at the Critics Choice and Golden Globe awards it is possible to hear the movie called in the best picture field this award season Watcher says the Oscars could be next it is on the table I've spoken with Academy members who love the movie suggesting what's considered an oscar-worthy film could be changing that they can be loud and rambunctious and celebratory and perhaps bizarre and utterly unrealistic but also uh deliver a story that is as truthful to the people watching it as it can be Oscars or not she says rrr has already proved itself with the audience it was made for Eli Glassner CBC News Toronto well the offer in New Liskeard Ontario seems enticing free valet parking why not but you might want to check out where

tell clients it's use at your own risk this is our third year doing it so the first one was um during the pandemic our second year we uh we decided to go maybe a little bit bigger we put a 32 foot full-size 32 foot RV in the thing and then this year we decided to go instead of going long we decided to go a little wider and we offered our our four vehicle valet hey you can't park there the reaction to this has been fantastic apparently yeah for some reason a lot of people think this is real a lot of people can't believe in you or questioning whether our insurance would cover this as long as you know it makes people laugh and it gets a chuckle and people get a chuckle out of it driving by that was kind of our main main reason how do people think this is real come on how could this be real I did want to know where those cars came from they are on loan from the scrap yard which apparently needs them back that is the national for January 23rd thank you for being with us [Music]
