Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: Oct. 18, 2021 | Trudeau apologizes to BC First Nation for ignoring invitations” – below is their description.

In tonight’s top story: After declining past invitations, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has now visited the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation in B.C., where he apologized for his vacation on Canada’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

Robin Gill reports on the concrete action Indigenous people, tired of hollow apologies and empty promises, are demanding.

During his visit, Trudeau announced another symbolic commitment in the path to reconciliation – David Akin explains what that is, and what can be expected from the upcoming speech from the throne.

While residential school survivors shared their heartache with the prime minister, recounting the painful history they have endured through generations.

Plus, former U.S. Secretary Colin Powell, known for his pivotal role in what was dubbed America’s “war on terror,” has died at 84 of complications from COVID-19, according to his family, who adds he was fully vaccinated against the virus.

America’s first Black secretary of state also had multiple myeloma and Parkinson’s, which made him more vulnerable to COVID-19.

Jackson Proskow looks back at the complex legacy of Powell, a key player in Washington, D.C. after 9/11.

Meanwhile, after his accuser spoke exclusively with Global News, Canadian Armed Forces officials say the decision not to prosecute Adm. Art McDonald on sexual misconduct allegations does not mean the claims against him are unfounded.

McDonald says he has been “exonerated.” As Abigail Bimman reports, McDonald is fighting to be reinstated as chief of the defence staff, as the military remains in leadership limbo.

And as travel measures ease, more Canadians are taking to the skies again, and airfares are soaring with them.

Ross Lord explains why the cost of flying is getting more expensive, and when there might be some relief.
