The British government is accusing Russia of plotting to install a pro-Russian government in Ukraine, and say Moscow has already chosen a candidate. There are already over 100,000 Russian troops on the border with Ukraine, with growing fears of an imminent invasion. Mike Le Couteur follows the developments on the story.

Representatives of Afghanistan’s Taliban arrived in Norway on Sunday for three days of talks on how to alleviate a humanitarian crisis.

Millions of Afghans have been plunged deeper into poverty since last year’s Taliban takeover, which resulted in disruption to aid programs and deteriorating food security. As Mike Armstrong reports, despite the need to end the humanitarian crisis, the talks with Taliban are being criticized as a form of legitimizing the group.

In Canada: convoys of hundreds of truckers left cities in B.C. and Ontario on Sunday to protest the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for cross-border truckers. As Brittany Rosen reports, the protest raises questions about the feasibility of restrictive public health decisions.

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way Canadians travel, with restrictions forcing many to stay local for their vacations. In Ontario, a new staycation tax credit program is even incentivizing a holiday closer to home. Anne Gaviola reports.

Virtual schools and events due to the pandemic mean longer screen time for many young people, and experts fear that could make them more vulnerable to so-called “incels” that are targeting the “next generation of extremists” online. Abigail Bimman reports.

Plus, according to a new report on the effects of plastic waste, it’s in our food, air and water, and if action is not taken soon on a global coordinated scale, activists warn plastic waste threatens the future of life on this planet in the same way as climate change. Redmond Shannon reports.
