Global National: September 23

Hurricane Fiona is trekking toward Nova Scotia and is expected to make landfall on Saturday. Right now, it has the strength and potential to become one of Canada’s worst storms in history. Plus, it's the final day of public hearings at the Mass Casualty Commission, which looked into the shooting rampage that took place in April of 2020 in Portapique, N.S. And in Iran, scenes of anger are playing out across the country as people take to the streets amid chants and protests, in a dramatic show of defiance against the regime. This follows the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died last week in the custody of Iran’s so-called ”morality police” – a notorious unit that enforces compulsory head scarf laws. Now, the government is imposing an internet blackout to curb dissent.
