Ah, lawyers have said the new guidelines, which take effect on Sunday, or meant to target the situations were scientists are seeing the highest levels of spread. Backyard barbecues, family gatherings and parties where people congregate very closely together and let their guard down. Mayor also said that he hopes to prevent the so called super spreader events that can lead to large clusters of cases.

Listen to uncover escaping nexium on CBC listen or wherever you get your podcasts. One of the things we've seen this story play out around the world, but you really see it firsthand in this film is the relationship between those who are taking care of the patients and the patients themselves, and and there is a even in frantic situations. A relationship that develops between those two parties. Tell me a little bit about the relationship as you sought between healthcare workers and the patients and their families. So I think that's Relationship, between healthcare workers and patients was definitely wise of the footage that really really moved me other than the really dramatic and situations that have been captured by my two CO directors It's. It was those little moments when healthcare nurse trying to hold hands with old grandma who was super scared by herself. It was those little moments I really moved me that showed me that in the direst in the most dangerous. Most fearful situations we human beings consume managed, show our humanity. They're still hope that we can always do this together. That's one of the reasons that really prompted me to continue on finish this film one of the nurses says to one of the patients your family is not here where your family now. Absolutely and then I think what the anonymous co-opted wasn't paying attention to that male nurse and the beginning. But as soon as I saw that footage you to follow. Follow him. You have to keep on filming him because he just in a very quiet but dignified ways. Interact the way he interacted with these patients were just so movies but in a very, you know understated way. That continued after the patients did not survive with Cova nineteen Thursday a story of WHO's determined help get the personal effects of the dead back to their families are bags and boxes of phones and identity cards, and what have you told me a little bit about that and how that.

She's a professional stand up comedian and she's been a writer for shows like this hour has twenty two minutes. Hello Newer Josh. So, I, know both of you are used to doing a lot of performing for live audiences and five months ago when the pandemic began that basically stopped. How much of a struggle? Was it? When when life show disappeared? It was such a big struggle because it's a up comedians were out every night working on our act and polishing are jokes and to have that be taken away. Completely not know when it would come back was really hard on the soul. It's cow you or a Lotta comic. That's how we process our lives. So the fact that we were going through this pandemic without the ability to process it in the way that we do was just. It was just really difficult. Imagined your creative process requires trying out material in front of people like really having a live audience there to to respond to and bounce off of. Yet there's nothing like that live audience reaction to a joke you wrote like the just adrenaline and the rush and the highs Davis to Q I like that. That's a nice name short for Stewart. Don't mix to continue to the nineteen seventies. So to go from that to just writing jokes into the abyss or online was. A. Very difficult for five months not to mention the fact that that this is your livelihood. Yes. Exactly I. Mean I in forty eight hours. All of my GIG Scott canceled. It was just one email after the other morale Maria what about you? I mean how difficult has it been for you and the artists that you know to try and make a living without live shows? Newer I mean exactly. We're such a similar boat the pandemic arrived in Canada just around the junos which obviously is sort of the big celebration of Canadian Music and so it not going ahead was a real. Oh. This is.

"Okay. So the new school year is is. It's coming fast. Yeah. You're sheduled to start some in person teaching again, some online. Are you prepared to move back online? I have to be honest and say, I'm not necessarily prepared to move back online. But the difference that I think that will happen. This time compared to the spring is that it will you know there will probably be more mandates to it. It would probably be more synchronous learning with specific time markers and things like that. So I would hope that if we do unfortunately moved to virtual platform there'll be a little more normalcy and buying from everybody involved. But in terms of being prepared I'm not gonNA.

"Schools across the country are getting ready to open up their doors to students many for the first time since the pandemic shut them down months ago provinces have released their back to school plans which focus on getting students back in the classroom. But many parents and teachers aren't convinced that enough is being done to keep people safe at this point, I have such little faith in the government's reopening plan that I don't think I even want my child to go back into the school system even though it will be stressful and exhausting for me I feel like it's in my child's best interest to stay at home.

"Was in jail at the time. As part of their rebuttal, case prosecutors called AJ's, grandmother K Winston to the stand. She was asked about something she told detectives on the night of the shootings. She said she told them that if AJ had done it, it had to be drug related K agreed that she did say that. But on cross examination she told the jury that she knows he didn't do it. She also testified that Joshua dropped her off at the hospital, the next day to see in Tonio, but that he never went to see him himself. In their closing arguments. AJ's attorney said the crux of the state's case focuses entirely on the alarm system, and at the company's employees, even admitted that the system could be compromised. They said the employee spoken generalities and about how the system should work that they never tested themselves in couldn't say, for sure that it had been installed properly, they pointed out that according to age as girlfriend Cates. Testimony AJ went to his dad that night for advice and that the state would have you believe that somewhere within an hour of that he then went and killed his parents. They said that doesn't stand to reason, and that the state's position is absurd. They pointed out that there was never any testimony about AJ being upset with his parents at all that day or the day before because it doesn't exist. They said the majority of cares. Testimony is undecided. Rooted. And they said she even told police the night of the murders that the alarm system hadn't been working properly, AJ's attorney, Rick Ditoto acknowledged that AJ was not a perfect kid, but that he was going through normal sixteen year old stuff. He said the state tried very hard to come up with a motive, but that they failed and he again, reiterated that the responding officers had made up their minds in minutes. We don't convict people on hunches or gut feelings. He said there is no DNA no gunshot residue no fingerprints. No, contact DNA noblest sticks. No shell casings, and no real witness interviews. He said reasonable doubts. He brought up officer James's testimony. And how investigators never did anything with the keypad on the garage. He said everyone went into the house that way family friends neighbors. How is it not important to see if someone gained entry through that way? He said they also never went around the neighborhood looking for surveillance cameras. What quicker way to prove his innocence or guilt, he asked, but it doesn't fit into their theory, and so they didn't care. He held up a photo of Josh Armstrong leaning against a police car. His eyes closed the night of the incident was Josh suspect. No. Not. According to anybody involved in this case they only interviewed him for four minutes. And prosecutors haven't interviewed him since the. Have you interview Josh block strong since that form an interview? State taxes. You have the burden of proof is in a capital murder. We're trying to say my client to prison for the rest of his life. Where is Josh? They knew longtime ago. Where does Josh least go interview him? At least have Daghma he's right there who talked to Josh find out what his situation is, what is his story. Was he involved was he not involved? Where was he who is he with will never know because they made that decision and up into right now? Whatever time it is twelve forty four they have yet to interview Josh again, or make any attempt to figure out what happened, that's reasonable doubt because they don't wanna know. He then listed off all the reasons why Josh likely committed the crimes thought of Jospin a suspect, but talk about Josh he lived minutes away. He had complete access to the house. You could go through the door the garage door and had a key. He was sitting with the vaction. He thought he was the black sheep of the family upset with his parents felt AJ cable treated, better behavior change when he came back from school. Hiding was not there. He was distant hadn't deeming in his head. The devil. Talk to himself, locked himself in the bathroom for hours walked in and out of a church adore church of multiple times. Violent, angry constantly smoking. We've objection outside a city. Again. Remember with layer same evidence. Do you mind? Split personality. Trying to burn down grandma's house, probably Bislett define that as tried to burn down grandma's house. Refuse to tell you James where he was at the time of the shooting. And something that speaks louder to me. Could be wrong, right? Josh off from ever went to the hospital. Check on his. He asked where Josh's cousin Trenton is the one his girlfriend Hannah has defied was with them the night of the murders. He said, maybe Trenton could give an alibi for Josh, but investigators are prosecutors never spoke with him. Why not just put him on the stand? He asked Ditoto than focused on the Jim break-in and those mysterious notes left for Joanna Oakes and her boyfriend, Tony hood, something is going on outside of the states theory. He said this point removed Jason custody math men broke into the gym to notes almost exactly like the one of the house, and there's a demon loose. The demon on the loose. Someone who has access to the house. We've mentally disturbed. He said that in order to commit the crime in this case, you'd have to be evil demonic something would have to be really, really wrong with you. Who do you think is more likely to be involved in this case he asked AJ or Josh? The prosecutors took turns with their closing arguments, a I was prosecuting attorney Lester blizzard, blizzard began by holding up photos of Don Indian Tonio and saying that it's important that everybody remember why they're all there he called them very fine people. And then he held up there ought topsy, photos and said, and this is what they've become. He said it's human nature to want to know the why, but that it's not something they have to prove in the case, he agreed that there is a substantial amount of time. They spent trying to show the jury what the motives might be was it that the defendant was failing from his very high spot as the big man on campus. Was it his daily drug use or drug dealing, he pointed out that his grandma had said to the officer that night? Well, if AJ did it, it's drug related. He said, maybe it's not being able to play ball at the private school. And he's upset about that. That maybe it's his constant lying and being called out for it by his parents. Maybe it was the massive trust fund that he would have access to. He said those were all submitted as ideas and suggestions of motive, but that they don't have to prove, which one it was. He said, you can't ignore that AJ initially lied about firing the gun in the week or two prior to the murders. He called it a practice shot and said, he fired through his comforter and pillow in order to see how loud, it would be. And if it would wake his sister up, he then set a fire and put it out. Are we starting to see theme here? He asked of things the defendant has admitted to he then referenced how on AJ's ipad, there was that search for her to make a car bomb his mind is working on this evil. He said he told the jury that Josh's mental illness made for a great scapegoat. He said, AJ is not above throwing his own siblings under the bus. Thus when he started the fire. He blamed, it on his sister is Josh capable of coming in and undermining and tricking sophisticated burglar alarm system in the depths of his illness, and conducting an execution. He asked he told the jury not to fall for that and called AJ a master manipulator. Far heen Roach, another prosecutor on the team, then sit up to address the jury. She said that AJ was planning the murders and that the proof is in the phone and computer evidence. She said that two days prior to the murders on the twenty six is when AJ tried to light, the house on fire his sister was out of town at that time, then his parents took his phone away. And on the twenty seventh he searched for how to rigor cars that it explodes when it's turned on on his ipad. Okay. We all have previ- things that are right. We want for files. We're gonna move will something does that mean that work does that mean if I will something crazy that I'm gonna kill my parents know we are looking backwards at what was going on in this person's like. Okay. So. Fired dot my phone take away on my. I've had looking at this point. I'm shooting my father's gun through the floor of my bedroom, and then covering up with socks. She said she is seen no indication in any of the evidence any of the text messages that Josh is mentally ill on July. Eighteenth. She said, Josh in Keira were even texting about going to the movies. I don't see any indication that Josh is mentally ill in any of the evidence that I've worked at and the defense told you that there, the evidence for the past three years, the Josh's mentally ill. We don't have that here. This is what we had. Where is that evidence that we were going to see that Josh having all these mental health problems homicide? -als. Before the murder who will be the messages. Because it's communications it's who this family was what was going on. She told the jury that contrary to what the defense said, AJ was not a happy individual on the day of the murders. She said he was grounded and couldn't drive his car. His girlfriend was out partying that night. And although they were texting he wanted to be with her. He wanted to be anywhere else. But home, she said, AJ was also texting Josh that night. And that Josh told him, I can't let you take the Mustang, you drive, so crazy and mom and dad said, no does that sound like a protective older, brother. That's trying to do the right thing, or does it sound like a homicidal guy. That's about to go crazy and commit these murders. She asked we have someone here who's freedom is restricted. He's failing out of school and losing focus. She said they didn't call family members to the stand because they don't have to that the evidence speaks for itself. They didn't call Trenton they didn't call Josh, she said Josh was having problems after the murders but that she would be a little torn up to in that situation. Prosecutor John brewer then closed it out for the prosecution. He said that AJ was a master liar and brought up the lies. He told in the interrogation with detectives I about not having touched his father's gun at all. And then about the fire. He doesn't have any problems. Looking you in the eye looking a police officer in the eye looking his father in the eye looking his mother in the eye in line to them? Looking this girlfriend in the in lying to her. He said the motion detectors didn't pick up movement before midnight showing that AJ never went in talked to his dad that night like he had told his girlfriend, he had he called it an elaborate deception, according to the phone records.

Hi, everyone Josh block here from uncover escaping Nexium. I'm joined today by Ian Hannah, massing someone I'm a huge fan of I've been listening to him and watching him since I was I think twelve years old. He's also one of the co host of the upcoming second season of uncover the investigative series from CBC podcasts. The second season is being released on November twelfth Hello in. Well, you know, Hello. But as much as on the fan of your podcast, you really have say even listen to since you're twelve. Well, the I was just saying other day that somehow I've managed to catch up to you in age. I don't know what what it is that you eat or your exercise regimen. But I feel like now I'm just a middle aged guy with with the unanimous. Excellent will now you've made up for that introduction. So I have lots of questions for you about Nexium. There are questions some of the podcast listeners have and questions that I have. And I'll just throw a combination of those two you one of the things I'm curious about when you do a project like that you're dealing with somebody who is a friend of yours for a long time and the podcast gets so much attention. She gets so much attention. How has the experience been for you and your relationship with her? Had a question, you know, on the one hand, it really amplified the feelings that we always have when we cover a story around getting a story. Right. I mean, I always want to story. Right. But in this case, I know the person whose story telling I really felt that obligation more acutely and the other side of it was I was kind of aware that people might perceive my journalism as being biased or influenced by the fact that I know her, and so I felt also more acutely than need to be balanced in the storytelling and to make sure that we're seeing it's recruiting lands. You know, Sarah's told me that she it's shell struggles with it because she has put herself out there and opened herself up to scrutiny. Renee, his lawyer was fascinating in podcast. You know, I expected to hear that that the lawyer wouldn't talk that that he would threaten to sue, you know, to the stone. Age if you dared to make any allegations he was very chatty. You know, take me behind the scenes of that. Or even inside your head is you're doing the interview with him. Yeah. I mean, we also were surprised and grateful. We had spent over the course of the investigation. We tried very very hard to speak to anyone inside Nexium or anyone that would be able to give us another perspective on on the story were trying to tell. So we were first of all really happy that he agreed to an interview and came forward. It was really useful and helpful for us to get an understanding of the perspective from people who support Nexium and. Yeah, I was also really surprised at how charming he was on a certain level. He wasn't a bulldog, you know, going into it. I thought oh, this is going to be kind of antisemitic interview. And he is going to jump down my throat if I suggest anything that he doesn't agree with. And that was not what happened. I actually found it to be a really engaging conversation. Even if I didn't agree with everything that he was saying. Any we've discussed a lot about why he agreed to do this interview. I don't know. Exactly. I mean, people have speculated online wasn't about there'd been so much media coverage told mostly from a different perspective about Nexium. And perhaps it was an effort there to shed light on another way of seeing the story. But I don't know exactly. This is going to sound like an odd path to take to an anecdote but bear with I was at the just for laughs festival. The comedy festival here in in Toronto few weeks ago sitting next to a guy and and we started chatting about escaping Nexium. And we'd both been listening to the podcast. And then the guy said to me, you know, I was a member of call. And then he he talked about his involvement for years in Scientology, which used the word cult to describe that. And I know that I'm not the, you know, I know that people have drawn parallels between Nexium in groups like Scientology, so for the leader of Nexium key through neary was he influenced at all. By either Scientology or other, you know, depending on your perspective cult-like organizations a couple people that have made that connection, but one person who knew Keith actually way back just after he graduated from college, and he was in the process of trying to develop some kind of company he wanted to make a lot of money and was very charismatic figure at the time and had all sorts of people around him engage in these conversations about the kind of company they wanted to make and this woman that we interviewed said they talked about Scientology keys, talked about Scientology as a really incredible moneymaker. He said, that's where the money is. It's in it's in creating a religion. They didn't they decided not to go that route the first company he he created was a multilevel marketing company that had nothing to do really with what Nexium was or with what Scientology is. But it seems like it was on his radar one. Then we talked to Rick Ross who had analyzed some of the next curriculum and has claimed that there are many elements within the curricula. Um that are borrowed from Scientology. Now, other experts will say look there, you know, all these kinds of groups tend to operate in the same way. And if you study three or four or five of them that you start to see the same patterns occurring again, and again, and again, but sure it does people point to the fact that there does seem to even be terminology suppressive 's that is was used a Nexium and has been used Scientology as well to compare lacework. Now, how do you on your next thing? I don't know. Well, the the trial is coming up in. Right now, it's laid it for Marge mice may be pushed a little bit later. There's a lot of information that they're trying to to analyze them to work through. So I will be doing some kind of coverage and providing updates when that at trial is happening. And and you know, and speaking of the next projects I to look at that. Segway. I thought coming, but I'm still very impressed by it. I appreciate it. I want to ask you about season two. I wonder if you can tell us a little bit about what the story that you are looking into in season two of uncover. Yes. So the title of season two is uncovered on board. And it's a podcast that working away on with some of the same team members who worked with you. And and the co host is Hannah staff who is meteorologist and science reporter from Vancouver where I was based for a long time. And this is a co production with the national, and this is a story about a plane crash back in long before you were born Josh in July eighth nineteen sixty five. It was C P flight twenty one and it was headed from Vancouver to prince George it exploded in mid air people on the ground. Even though this happened in a in a remote area, British Columbia actually heard the explosion looked up. Saw the tail section of the plane fall to the ground all fifty two people on board. This plane were killed and. And when you look at the newspaper coverage of this the next day, literally as you would expect front page stories coast to coast and even at that point. So it must have just been a couple of hours after the crash. These stories were written already people were talking about how would seem likely that it had been a bomb on this plane that led to the crash and and yet fifty three years later this remains unsolved. It's amazing. I think I'm probably not alone in this that I had never heard of this case. So that is certainly one of the things that that that drew me to this story. It's really strange that it got such widespread. News coverage of the time. And yet it seemed to recede from the memories of the people who were alive at the time. And it's never really been part of the history of the folklore of of the area. I mean, some of these stories of of plane crashes are stories that people were member and talk about Swissair was only twenty years ago. But I feel that it will be. Remembered for a long time. So how did this one get forgotten, especially when you consider that it was not just a plane crash, but that it was a bomb? I mean to think that at any time, but especially nineteen sixty five that someone would have done this someone would have planted that bomb, and and that that remained undetected how that hasn't continued as a story is is strange and yet you talk to the family members of the people who were on board. They certainly remember. And it's not hard to get them to to speak about what happened and then other people who have connections in in unusual ways. There's a guy named Ken Leyland. And he was he was a teenager. When this crash happened in his dad was a senior investigator for transport Canada. Which at the time did the role that now is done by the Transportation Safety Board. So Ken was at the dinner table in Vancouver. When his dad got the call that are playing crashed and you need to to head one hundred mile house. And here's an excerpt of my conversation with. Leyland the son of the transport Canada investigator when I hear from your that he in the RCMP pretty sure who did it the night before the reunion. I was the first time. And what did you dad tell you? I asked him point blank. I said, do you know who did it? And he said, we have a very good idea who the responsible person was the knew who was responsible. Josh is the first time that Ken has has publicly. Told the story in and and revealed that information, and so we've been doing a pretty extensive investigation. We have talked to modern day aircrash investigator and explosives expert a criminologist who used to be a police officer with an interesting coal cases to to try to move this case forward and try to get the answer to this Fifty-three-year-old mystery who put that bomb on the plane. I'm very excited to to listen to this series season two of uncover. Thank you so much in. Well, thank you as I say, I come to this. Honestly, I am very proud to be part of the series. And once I started listening to your podcast. It was my biggest challenge was not to listen to multiple episodes in a single day. So it was a fantastic piece of work. And I do look forward very much to your coverage of the trial. Have you shouldn't? Okay. Thank you very much. Right. Bye. For more CBC original podcasts. Goto CBC dot CA slash original podcasts.
