Global National: March 23, 2022 | Ukraine Says Russia Has Agreed To 9 Humanitarian Corridors
Despite previous deals falling apart almost immediately, Ukraine and Russia have reached another agreement for humanitarian corridors, to allow more people to flee the war. Redmond Shannon explains how the European Union is bracing for more refugees and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s latest pleas to other countries.
Meanwhile, in an address to the European Parliament, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged leaders to stand united against Russian aggression. As David Akin explains, Trudeau says that unity will be vital as Western leaders try to stay one step ahead of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The conflict in Ukraine has also created an unprecedented refugee crisis in Europe. But what help is coming to the other crises around the world, like the conflict in Yemen, or the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan? As Heather Yourex-West reports, aid is being stretched thin.
Plus, Unifor, Canada’s largest private-sector union, is accusing former president Jerry Dias of accepting money from a COVID-19 rapid test kit supplier to promote those products to employers of union members. As Abigail Bimman reports, the allegations became public right after Dias made some personal revelations.
Also, as demand surges for electric vehicles, Stellantis and LG Energy Solution are now planning to build a battery plant in Windsor, Ont. Mike Drolet explains what this could mean for Canada.
To the pandemic — public health restrictions are lifting, but there is, of course, the possibility they could return. So what does that uncertainty mean for our mental health? Jamie Mauracher looks at pandemic flux syndrome.
