Members of the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation in British Columbia, as well as many others from across Canada, gathered in Kamloops to mark the first anniversary of when 215 unmarked graves were detected at a nearby former residential school.

Crews in southern Ontario are working to restore power for thousands of people, after Saturday’s sudden and severe thunderstorm that killed at least 10 people. Mike Drolet looks at how long it might take for people to get their electricity back, and the rare weather phenomenon that allowed to storm to cause so much damage.

As many American families struggle with a nationwide baby formula shortage, the military has now brought in 78,000 pounds (or 35 metric tonnes) of the highly sought-after product from Europe. Jackson Proskow explains what set off the crisis, and the emotional toll it’s taking on parents.

Three months into repelling Russia’s invasion, Ukraine has now sentenced the first Russian soldier convicted with committing war crimes in the conflict. Redmond Shannon reports on the punishment tank commander Vadim Shishimarin, 21, received; and the fresh appeals at the World Economic Forum to further isolate Russia.

There is new hope for parents with children between the ages of six months and five years. Pfizer says three doses of its COVID-19 vaccine for these younger kids are safe and effective. Ross Lord explains how the data is inspiring new confidence.

And some talented, young Calgarians are stepping up to salute a legend. As Gil Tucker reports, they’re celebrating his legacy of promoting civil rights and the dance style they love.
