Global National: May 22, 2022 | Death toll from storms in Ontario, Quebec rises to at least 8

Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: May 22, 2022 | Death toll from storms in Ontario, Quebec rises to at least 8” – below is their description.

In our top story: The death toll from the destructive storm that crossed Ontario and Quebec on Saturday has risen to at least eight people. Hundreds of thousands are still without power. Ross Lord takes a look at the damage and whether it’s a sign of things to come with climate change on everyone’s mind.

One of the areas hardest hit by the storm was the Ontario township of Uxbridge, which declared a state of emergency. The destruction there is so bad it’s fueled speculation that this was more than just an ordinary thunderstorm. Mike Drolet spoke with residents on how the terrifying conditions tore through their homes.

U.S. President Joe Biden is in Tokyo, Japan, the latest stop in his Asia trip. But as he’s set to meet with the country’s prime minister, he’s facing a growing chorus of criticism at home over his handling of a string of domestic challenges.

More than 80 per cent of COVID-related deaths in Canada’s first wave happened in long-term care homes.

And now a new coroner’s report out of Quebec paints a devastating picture of how things unfolded at one of the hardest-hit residences. As Dan Spector tells us, the hope is the lessons learned during the first wave will help improve seniors’ care across the country.

After two very difficult years of pandemic-related restrictions and closures, restaurants and bars across Canada are facing another challenge. As Global’s Emad Agahi reports, the struggling food services industry is calling on the provincial and federal governments to take action to help alleviate a crippling labour shortage.

Just six months until Canada’s national team will make its first appearance at a FIFA World Cup in 36 years. And this tournament will also make history with female referees overseeing some World Cup games for the first time. Redmond Shannon reports.

The clothes you wear can sometimes be a reflection of your personality, preferences and identity. A student-led initiative is teaching Calgary’s LGBTQ community how to alter clothing to make them gender-affirming. As Jill Croteau reports, some consider it a lifeline.
