Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: Sept. 27, 2021 | Alberta doctors plead for shutdown as COVID-19 crisis deepens” – below is their description.

As Alberta’s intensive care units continue to fill up with COVID-19 patients, doctors are pleading with the province to impose a ‘fire break’ lockdown. Heather Yourex-West explains why Premier Jason Kenney is resisting that, as one former ICU patient explains his regret at not getting vaccinated.

With COVID-19 vaccine passports now required in much of Canada, some people are lashing out, threatening or harassing staff at businesses. As Jamie Mauracher reports, the rules are keeping away some customers.

And Jackson Proskow reports on how health workers in New York are facing a controversial but effective ultimatum: get the COVID-19 jab or lose your job.

Plus, the Chinese government insists there is no connection between the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, and the return of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. Much of the world, though, considers it a case of hostage diplomacy. As Abigail Bimman reports, how Ottawa navigates its relationship with Beijing won’t be easy.

Meanwhile, in the aftermath of Canada’s federal election – after a difficult year of party infighting and her failure to win a seat in the House of Commons, Annamie Paul is stepping down as leader of the Greens. Richard Zussman looks at what went wrong for Paul, and what comes next for the struggling party.

The results are in from Germany’s own historic election, where the Social Democratic Party has achieved a razor-thin victory over the Christian Democratic Union, the party of outgoing Chancellor Angela Markel. As Redmond Shannon reports, the question of who will succeed Merkel still hangs in the air.

Finally, American scientists have found 23,000-year-old fossilized footprints in New Mexico, the oldest ever recorded in North America. Eric Sorensen explains the big implications for human history.
