Tensions are rising in the waters off Taiwan. The Taiwanese government accused China of rehearsing an attack against the Island. U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited there this week, sparking an angry backlash from Chinese officials, and a launch of military drills in and around the Taiwan Straight. Abigail Bimman reports on calls for the Canadian government to respond.

Indiana has become the first state to ban nearly all abortions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. The state’s Republican governor quickly signed the near-total ban on the procedure shortly after lawmakers approved it. All abortion clinics in that state will now lose their licenses under the new law. Jennifer Johnson reports.

The battle for abortion rights is expected to be front and centre in the upcoming midterm elections in the United States. Historically, the president’s party almost always loses seats in the midterms, but a referendum this week in a mid-western state has up-ended those expectations. Eric Sorensen explains.

Sarah MacDonald has the story of the vulnerable, Indigenous teenager whose family says she was failed even in death.

On Tuesday, voters in Kenya will head to the polls to choose a new president. In the past, elections there have been met with deadly violence and controversial legal challenges. Well, this time around the cost of living is the number one issue. As Redmond Shannon reports the two main candidates are former allies and both firmly part of the political establishment.

A non-profit in Victoria, B.C. that specializes in prosthetics is now stepping up to help war-torn Ukraine with so many soldiers and civilians losing limbs as a result of Russian attacks. As Kylie Stanton reports, the charity is now looking to ordinary Canadians for help.
