Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: Feb. 7, 2021 | Worries mount as 1st Brazil COVID-19 variant detected in Canada” – below is their description.
In our top story: Canada has its first case of the COVID-19 variant first detected in Brazil and it is in Toronto. The person who tested positive is in hospital and did travel to the South American country. These variants are worrisome, especially as more provinces start to ease restrictions. As Heather Yourex-West reports, it’s these risks that are making some Albertans worry about reopening too soon.
Minister of national defence and former Canadian soldier, Harjit Sajjan, speaks with Global News in his first interview since we reported on the allegations against former chief of the defence staff, Gen. Jonathan Vance. Sajjan said on The West Block that he was shocked to learn of the allegations and is committed to a fulsome investigation. Mike Le Couteur has more on the interview.

Jennifer Johnson reports.

DC Comics has debuted a new Batman and for the first time in 82 years, a person of colour is putting on the cowl of the Caped Crusader and the writer behind the superhero is also Black. Some readers see this as a step in the right direction for representation. As Phil Carpenter reports, the industry still has a long way to go to improve diversity in comic books.
