it’s Wednesday July 11th and on this night the truck baby ready to take to the skies as the president himself takes on his friend his NATO allies confronted like fools and freeloader they might not like that you might be right this is a day when countries have gone to their Corners also today when Greyhound goes subject in England right now after a bad day on the pitch this is the night in principle NATO is the strongest military Alliance in the world and wild Donald Trump may have doubts about it Justin Trudeau doesn’t something the Prime Minister affirmed while announcing a new Canadian mission to Iraq today now we have to rebuild that democracy and strengthen it NATO is going to take a significant role in that encounter this going to commit 250 troops a number of helicopters and we are actually offering to command that mission for the first year this is some what we believe in different troops in Iraq something Trudeau has pointed out since Trump started demanding NATO allies increase their spending but it wasn’t just Canada on the defensive it today so Katherine Cullen explains from Brussels 1A country is getting his energy from it the person you want protection against or from the group if you want to text him is making Russia richer so don’t be fooled by the photo op Gran’s the military Alliance is not one big happy family right now Trump has been demanding all countries fulfill their pledge and spend more on defense and not 5 years from now immediately who we are as Canadians but not new spending and even though Justin Trudeau signed a joint declaration committing Tomatoes Financial targets he also says Canada won’t meet them we don’t think about you know who’s who’s doing more who’s doing less we will do what we can and what we feel is right then decided to up the pressure behind closed doors he told leaders they should double their military spending goals to 4% of each country’s economic output discussions challenges but wouldn’t bite on Trump suggestion Germany’s Angela Merkel must stink going from this this and then this relationship to Germany is it wanting to see more cooperation is Canada’s prime minister Trudeau and Trump met today as well why does that matter would Justin Trudeau said that he was looking forward to this conversation with Donald Trump which might come as a bit of a surprise when you can see about the last time these two spoke afterwards the US president tweeted that Trudeau was very weak and dishonest and that was inspired by a dispute about trade and it was trade that they discuss today according to the prime minister’s office now this is a meeting sidelines of the summit not a formal sit-down we understand that they discuss NAFTA how the newly-elected Mexican president might change the dynamic and Canadian official say it was a good conversation which suggests I’m calling all right Catherine thanks very much Kathryn cullinan Brussels tonight Trump’s next stop London for his first visit to the UK and many there have had just about enough of his transatlantic taunt so much that if Trump wants to see what many Brits think of him he can just look up in diapers cell phone in hand will fly for London Friday morning with the approval of Mary sadik-khan who is no stranger to Trump’s colorful criticism Khan signed off on the protest blimp last week and then a group crowdfunded a baby sadik-khan blimp that may also fly this course has come to this we are also expecting anti-trump protests across the UK tomorrow not wholly surprising because as Margaret Evans explains the president has been a regular critic of the usli former British prime minister Sir Winston Churchill first coined the phrase the special relationship to describe anglo-american relations back in 1946 and it’s been a much cherish here ever since but it hasn’t offered written immunity from insult when it comes to the US administration of Donald J Trump so let us count the ways no go zones even before mr. Trump became president Trump he was wrestling feathers on this side of the pond in 2015 he claimed they were radicalized no go zones that the British police were afraid to enter and then when he was in office falsely blamed rise and UK crime and what he called radical Islamic Terror City, he’s been targeted more than once by the US president offended were the ones that came right in the midst of the London Bridge attack first Trump used it to justify his call for a travel ban on six muslim-majority countries then he called the London mayor pathetic and took his comment londoners to remain calm out-of-context backing the far-right in November Donald Trump retweet it a series of anti-muslim videos posted by an extreme right group called Britain first and even though anxious to reach a post brexit trade deal with from the British prime minister Theresa May felt compelled to intervene telling trump it was wrong to give voice to hateful narratives Remember When Donald Trump accused Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower and then his spokesman push the envelope even further by repeating some media reports that British intelligence and help them do it is James Bond agencies were

highlighting and uglier side this graphic posters from the national Center for domestic violence blood from a woman’s mouth forms the flag of England st. George’s cross with the tagline when England gets beaten so does she the campaign draws on Research that looked at the number of domestic violence incidents reported to police during 3 previous world the studies found a 38% spike in domestic violence when England lost a match and a 26% Spike when it won or tied it was also an 11% increase and reports the date after when played no matter the outcome maybe it’s the alcohol maybe it’s the emotion either way police departments across the UK have tweeted out their own warning this one from a police service but it’s response to domestic abuse calls England matches National Center for domestic violence warrants this isn’t just an England problem it also released to posters in time for the France Belgium game yesterday small piece in a large puzzle the Canadian diver who helped rescue 12 boys and their coach from that cave in Thailand top stories on our Instagram page today images will never get tired of the incredible scenes as Thailand celebrated the rescue of the wild boars follow us at STC the Nash deadlift off a Russian cargo ship made history this week when it down to the International Space Station less than 4 hours after liftoff that is a new record for the fastest Mission ever to the space station a trip to normally takes 2 days the robotic spacecraft deliver nearly 3 tons of food Fuel and other supplies for the crew Davidson shock will be part of that crew on the International Space Station the Canadian astronaut says he dreamed of exploring space how he made it to this point is an impressive journey in itself working in the field for two years before going back to school for a PhD in astrophysics after that he worked in some of the world’s top facilities but then still in his thirties another career call to him he went to medical school choosing to practice in far north in a small intimate community on the eastern shore of Hudson’s Bay between climbing mountains and sailing ocean also got his commercial pilot’s license by the way he speaks 5 languages humbled by this cuz I know it says the past lies ahead is is yuge and when he was selected by Canada Space Program he still hadn’t hit 40 pretty impressive the year since we’ve been spent training for The Greatest Adventure of cenegenics life I got a chance to see that process up close this spring and the Johnson Space Center in Houston has been making of an astronaut when an illustration of just how complex in challenging Astronaut training is neutral buoyancy laboratory we’re going underwater house prepared that it’s an exact for going into space just getting dressed as cumbersome this already bulky suit will stiffen when it’s pressure on and when he goes underwater to work on them what size replica of the International Space Station every move he makes will be washed and assessed by team of scientists all these training session you must know and I must Master not to try to please any structure or to pass a test I must know them want to survive and so that added sense of reality of urgency of this kind of anime all fear is what drives me to refocus we are the active response gravity offload system and it’s going to simulate zero gravity for you it goes from underwater to mid air sensors become very close we were told to matching the challenge of weightlessness on the ISS your body is not used to having gravity or a wall or the floor to push against contract against one of the things about the spaceflight is the absence of that putting in water we can train and water but water you can’t swim so we train our goes to learn that to learn the art for example cuz if I push and then I’m going to keep sending and maybe nervous is too weak to the fight that yes yes yes yes yes and everybody says I’m bored that’s no cuz I was a senior crew and they’ve been there for a month and then when the rookies come in there bouncing all over the place and withstand the g-forces of blast off and the return to Earth the stamina to work out of a 2 hours a day on the ISS to try to maintain muscle and bone mass but in an instant survival in space can require more than just brought the trees and some chemicals so many acronyms even the instructor gets mixed up will be responsible for maintenance on the Columbus lab and conducting experiments on astronaut helped in the destiny and unity Labs as well as controlling the Canada training in this virtual reality lab if you make it if you make an effort to put yourself there and you said today I am really in the cupola and space station really about the capture spacecraft worth several hundreds of millions of dollars and the whole world watching I must not screw this up anything make you nervous or anxious now evaluated this may be my last chance to try this this may be the last time I have instructor available to answer this question on this topic is a sense of urgency in the nearing area get to the launch the more responsible you feel for your own tree and the more you realize that the other day it’s just between you and yourself whether you’re ready ready ready for this December just over 5 months from now the Russians now provide transport to the International Space Station and says he has been training to copilot the soyuz launch from Kazakhstan alongside Russian cosmonaut American astronaut and the clean is the third member of this mission that mean you’re going to be the mediator up there interesting question you know between us the croup astronauts cosmonauts from different countries we’re like brothers and sisters in arms we’re really feel that we are above the Earth he fights even right now because I mean you can’t help it look at the headlines and see the tensions between Russia and the United States that does any of that seep into your world that we are in lock step is the bed one of the beauties of the Space Program to me is one of the things I’m most proud of to be part of one of those areas of human endeavor where we actually honestly you want to work together to you and come and go is there anything in your life up until now you have this such an accomplished background but is there anything in particular that more than anything prepared you for this moment looking back it all contributed to some extent certainly dealing with medical emergencies maybe from a psychological perspective is it was pretty near to that but then working at an astrophysicist on very expensive equipment doing repairs there you also get the sense of sense of responsibility don’t want to mess that up and then you know perhaps living as a married man with children and you learn a lot about teamwork here in a lot about sitting out for other people’s emotions and at the end of the day I think we see from receipt from experience that majority of problem is people ever have and space flights are based on your relationships and communication so you have to feel ready for her for that aspect so you’re not just there to put buttons it has been two years of mastering his skills and Europe Russia Japan and of course in the US Miracle of international collaboration that represents especially this day and age should never forget that space station was built by 16 Nations before biggest contributor is being the United States Russia Germany and Japan and you have to go back long to come back an area where there was a brutal collaboration between discrimination so space. That’s it is one of those Arenas where humans work play well together and honestly want to achieve the same goal and that is a thing I think I can blast off on his first mission on December 20th and there is currently another Canadian in space it’s an honor and privilege for me to be a part of this international program took over as the commander the International Space Station last month he’s a jewel Canadian American citizen and one of the world’s most experienced spacewalkers and worked as a geophysicist in Kingston Ontario before becoming astronaut still has the Canadian at the center of the tight rescue effort his incredible story is our moment of the day but first we want to show you a story will bring you tomorrow night on the national adoptions he’s a brand new character in the second season of the CBC drama and you may not remember him from the books he’s a Bentley’s first ever black character his name is Sebastian he’s from Trinidad and it’s beyond assuming that discovers his presence is part of a growing Trend in. Dramas to include more diverse characters and make the story more historically accurate so I said to her did you have any idea that there been black people Rhode Island since 1751 and she was like no I didn’t and I was like most people don’t let me tell you every bit of news about that boys cartoon trapped in Thailand grab the world’s attention and with it came a rollercoaster of emotions from the joy of finally finding them to fears over how to get them out there rescue seemed nearly impossible including too though using to know for the first time we are now hearing from a Canadian diver who was part of the rescue effort he help support divers in the UK during the mission so here is some of what Eric Brown shared by phone the cbc’s Heather hiscox moment of the day let me see Zero visibility Day evening zero visibility you can’t see anything you always confident that you’ll be able to carry this off or where there any questions in your mind as you embarked on this section which is the 25 minutes or you’re underwater swim yeah in my head I was like this Jesse comes down to the US Military you are cute are you sort of processing it in your mind what you been apart of what you’ve been able to accomplish earlier today one of our reporters in Vancouver I need a bath spoke with Erik’s Big Brother Kirk about what this moment has meant for them to let’s have a listen to that not just on how we handle himself during the rescue but how he’s handled discussing it after he’s just talked to the prodigal daughter Britney’s work with how they were a team and it doesn’t surprise me he was there it doesn’t surprise me that he’s being good stink so humble I’m just proud all around and let’s not lose sight Adrienne of the risks involved here I saw an interview earlier today with the US Air Force Major I think we part of the plan he said the risk a 70% chance of success 70% chance they would succeed and that would almost certainly include he said casualties among the soccer team so an incredible feat long time there’s a lot to learn from this is the national for Wednesday July 11th goodnight
