>>THIS IS CBC HERE AND NOW.>>I’M HAVING DINNER WITH SOME FRIENDS IN CLARONVILLE AND THIS IS PART OF A MUCH LARGER HALLOWEEN DISPLAY THAT HAS THE WHOLE COMMUNITY TALKING. I’LL TELL YOU ABOUT THAT.>>REVEALING INFORMATION DURING THE COURSE OF AN INFORMATION WHICH CAUSED THE INVESTIGATION TO FAIL. YOU ANTHONY GERMAIN WOULD BE HAVING A DIFFERENT DISCUSSION WITH ME SAYING HOW COULD YOU LET THAT HAPPEN, Mr. BURN.>>JERRY BURN TALKS TO ME ABOUT THE SIMON DIE-OFF ON THE SOUTH COAST AND WHETHER THEY SHOULD HAVE TOLD THE PUBLIC MORE. AND THAT’S WHERE WE START. THE PRIVACY COMMISSIONER WILL LOOK INTO THE MASSIVE SALMON DEATHS OFF NEWFOUNDLAND’S NEW COAST. JAMES DINN ASKED TO LOOK INTO THE DETAILS THAT THE FISHERY DEPARTMENT COULD OR SHOULD HAVE SHARED ABOUT THAT INFORMATION. YOU MAY RECALL MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION SALMON DIED IN FORTUNE’S BAY. JERRY BURN SAID HE DIDN’T HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO TELL THE PUBLIC. NOW BURN HAS WRITTEN THE PRIVACY COMMISSIONER OUTLINING HIS POINT OF VIEW AND IN THAT LETTER, HE SAYS THE DEPARTMENT OF FISHERIES NEVER IMMEDIATELY REPORTED SALMON MORTALITIES IN THE PAST AND WROTE, THE PREEXISTING PRACTISE OF THE DEPARTMENT WAS NOT TO PROACTIVELY DISCLOSE AND HE SAYS, I HAVE NEVER BEEN COMFORTABLE WITH THAT. BURN SAYS HE FELT HE HAD TO SPEAK OUT AFTER THE SALMON DEATHS BECAME PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE AND WROTE, ONCE THE ISSUE HAD BECOME A MATTER OF PUBLIC DISCUSSION, I BELIEVE I WAS COMPELLED TO RELEASE DETAILS THAT I WAS AWARE OF REGARDING THE MASS MORTALITY TO ANSWER PUBLIC QUESTIONS. NOW BURN SAID THE PRIVACY LEGISLATION PREVENTED HIM FROM GOING PUBLIC BUT WHEN HERE AND NOW ASKED HIS DEPARTMENT FOR SPECIFIC SECTIONS OF THE LAW OR ANY SUCH REGULATIONS, WE DIDN’T RECEIVE ANY ANSWERS. BURN SAYS THE POLICY AROUND PUBLIC DISCLOSURE WILL CHANGE AFTER A TWO-YEAR STUDY AND WE HAVE BEEN REQUESTING INTERVIEWS OF Mr. BURN FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS NOW AND TODAY HE AGREED TO AN INTERVIEW.>>THE PAST GOVERNMENT TOOK A FORMAL DECISION NOT TO DISCLOSE ANYTHING AND ANTHONY GERMAIN, WHAT YOU KNOW NOW IS THAT FROM 2012 TO 2014, OVER FOUR MILLION FISH PERISHED FROM SEVEN DIFFERENT EVENTS WHERE THERE WAS NO DISCLOSURE AND THAT WAS A SET PATTERN AND WE DECIDED TO CHANGE THAT BECAUSE THAT WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO ME AND AS A RESULT, NEW REGULATIONS COME INTO PLACE THAT THE INDUSTRY WILL DISCLOSE.>>JERRY BURN AND I GET INTO AN INTERESTING DISCUSSION ON THIS TOPIC AND YOU SHOULD TUNE IN AND SEE THAT ENTIRE INTERVIEW IN 25 MINUTES.>>ON THIS HALLOWEEN NIGHT, I HAVE A FORECAST THAT MIGHT SHAKE YOU TO THE BONES. WE HAVE WARMER AIR THROUGH THE ISLAND BUT UP THROUGH LABRADOR, SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL AND I’LL HAVE THE SCARRY DETAILS COMING UP.>>THAT WAS AWESOME!>>CAN YOU BELIEVE YOU GOT TO TALK TO TERRY FOX’S BROTHER? YOU ARE PROBABLY THE LUCKIEST KID.>>PROBABLY.>>7-YEAR-OLD ETHAN SMALL’S HALLOWEEN JUST GOT A LITTLE MORE SPECIAL. HIS MESSAGE FROM TERRY FOX IS COMING UP NEXT ON HERE AND NOW.>>>A ROYAL NEWFOUNDLAND CONSTABULARY OFFICER HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH ASSAULT AND CAUSING A DISTURBANCE. THE CONSTABLE HAS BEEN PLACED ON ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES PENDING THE OUTCOME OF COURT PROCEEDINGS. THE INCIDENT HAS NOT BEEN FORWARDED TO NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR’S SERIOUS RESPONSE TEAM, AS IT DOESN’T MEET THE CRITERIA.>>>WELL, THERE’S NOTHING LEFT IN WARD’S HARBOUR. EARLIER THIS WEEK, FOUR CABINS NORTH OF SPRINGDALE WERE DESTROYED BY FIRE. TROY TURNER REPORTS.>>Reporter: THEY USED TO BE SECOND HOMES AND NOW THEY’RE PILES OF RUBBLE.

THEY DEARLY LOVED IT DOWN HERE.>>Reporter: OXFORD LEARNED OF THE FIRES MONDAY AFTERNOON. RIGHT AWAY HE TRAVELED DOWN 14-KILOMETER WOODS ROAD TO GET HERE.>>BEFORE I TURNED IN, I COULD SEE THE SMOKE AND HAZE.>>Reporter: HIS FIRST CAB BEEN WAS BURNED TWO YEARS AGO, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE, LAST TIME HE RECEIVED AN ANONYMOUS CALL SAYING THE BUILDING WAS ABOUT TO BE TORCHED.>>I CAME DOWN THERE AND THE RCMP CAME DOWN WITH ME AND I GAVE HIM THE STATEMENT ON EVERYTHING, YOU KNOW AND A LOT HAPPENED, WHATEVER, AND THEY TOOK PICTURES OF IT. AND SO, WE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING AFTERWARDS.>>Reporter: FOLLOWING THE FIRE, HE AND A FRIEND DECIDED TO BUILD ON TO AN EXISTING PLACE AND THAT’S DESTROYED, TOO.>>YOU COME TO THE CABIN AND MEET AT THE CABIN AND HAVE A LITTLE MEALS AND GET TOGETHERS AND IT’S ENJOYABLE, RIGHT.>>Reporter: THE RCMP SAY THE FIRES ARE SUSPICIOUS AND IT’S INVESTIGATING. WHILE IT MAY BE TOO EARLY TO TELL IF CABIN OWNERS PLAN TO REBUILD, THERE’S ONE COMMON THREAD AND THAT IS, THEY WANT JUSTICE. CABIN OWNERS WANT SOMEONE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE ACTIONS AND HELPING CHARGES WILL FOLLOW. TROY TURNER, CBC NEWS, WARDS HARBOUR.>>>THERE ARE SIGNS OF PROGRESS ON THE BIGGEST TECHNICAL CHALLENGES FACING THE MUSKRAT FALL’S PROJECT. THERE ARE STRUGGLES BY GENERAL ELECTION TRICK TO DEVELOP OPERATING SOFTWARE FOR THE LABRADOR ISLAND LINK TO BRING ELECTRICITY TO THE PENINSULA. THE SOFTWARE IS WAY BEHIND SCHEDULE BUT MARSHALL SAYS HE CAME AWAY FROM A VISIT WITH A POSITIVE FEELING.>>THEY’RE MAKING GOOD PROGRESS. THEY’RE PICKING UP THE PACE AND A LOT OF RESOURCES TO IT. SO I WAS PLEASED, I WAS PLEASED THAT THINGS ARE GOING WELL.>>Reporter: SOFTWARE SHOULD BE READY FOR TESTING IN JANUARY AND IF CORE CAN GET THE LINE OPERATING, IT’S POSSIBLE MUSKRAT FALLS COULD FLOAT THIS WINTER. THE FIRST OF FOUR TURBINES COULD BE ENERGIZED NEXT MONTH AND READY TO PROVIDE POWER IN JANUARY. MEANWHILE, MARSHALL SAYS CONSTRUCTION AT MUSKRAT FALSE IS PRACTICALLY COMPLETE AND HE SAYS THERE IS TO CHANGE TO THE $12.7 BILLION CONSTRUCTION PRICE TAG.>>>OIL PRODUCED ON THE GRAND BASS COULD BE FLOWING THROUGH A NEW BEHAVIOR LAND PIPELINE IN PLACENTIA BAY AND THAT COULD BE BETTER ACCESS FOR THE OIL TO INTERNATIONAL MARKETS. HERE AND NOW’S TERRY ROBERTS REPORTS.>>Reporter: HERE IS THE NORTH ATLANTIC REFINERY, AN ICON ISSUE PIECE OF REAL ESTATE IN PLACENTIA BAY AND IT’S BEEN PROCESSING OIL AT RECORD LEVELS.>>WE’RE AT A RECORD PEAK.>>Reporter: THE REFINERY IS WITHIN SIGHT OF THE TRANSSHIPMENT TERMINAL WHERE THE OIL PRODUCED IN THE NEWFOUNDLAND OFF-SHORE IS DELIVERED BUT FOR THE REFINERY THERE’S NO EASY ACCESS TO ALL THAT OIL, BUT THAT COULD SOON CHANGE. NORTH ATLANTIC WANTS TO BUILD A CONNECTOR PIPELINE OVER THIS BARON STRETCH OF LAND TO ACCESS MORE OIL FROM FIELDS LIKE HIBERNIA.>>IT’S A SMALL PIPELINE. I MEAN, THE LENGTH IS ONLY 2.5 KILOMETERS.>>Reporter: AND HERE IS THE MAN CHAMPIONING THIS $8 MILLION PROJECT.>>YOU NEED A PUMP STATION AND THEN YOU HAVE THESE TWO LARGE FACILITIES, BOTH IMPORTANT FOR THE INFRASTRUCTURE, OFF THE PROVINCE, I MEAN CONNECTED WITH EACH OTHER.>>Reporter: OIL FROM ALL FOUR OFF-SHORE FIELDS IS SHIPPED BY SHUTTLE TANKERS AND TRANSFERRED TO OTHER SHIPS FOR DELIVERY ELSEWHERE. BUT A PIPELINE WILL ALLOW THE REFINERY TO HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO THAT PRODUCT. AND MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO LOAD NEWFOUNDLAND OIL ON TO SUPER-SIZED TANKERS. IT’S SOMETHING THAT IS NOT CURRENTLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF LIMITED INFRASTRUCTURE AT WIFFENHEAD.>>THAT INCREASES THE ABILITY OFF OUR CRUDES FROM OUR PROJECTS INTO THE WORLD AND THAT HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO INTO AUSTRALIA AND ALSO TO ASIA, WITH THE SMALLER CARRIERS WAS NOT THAT ECONOMICALLY VIABLE.>>Reporter: THE PROJECT WILL REQUIRE GOVERNMENT APPROVAL, WITH THE ENVIRONMENT MINISTER EXPECTED TO MAKE A DECISION NEXT MONTH BUT THE COMPANY IS HOPEFUL IT WILL GET THE GO AHEAD.>>THERE’S NO POPULATION IN THE AREA AND WE’RE NOWHERE CLOSE TO THE SEA. WE’RE GOING OVER LAND.

THERE’S NO TERRY FOX COSTUME IN THE STORE.>>IT’S AMAZING TO SEE THAT ALL THESE YEARS LATER THAT TERRY IS STILL INSPIRING YOUNG CHILDREN TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE.>>Reporter: FRED FOX IS PLANNING TO COME TO NEWFOUNDLAND NEXT YEAR. IT WILL MARK 40 YEARS SINCE TERRY FOX BEGAN HIS MARATHON OF HOPE IN SAINT JOHNS.>>I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU IN FUTURE IN THE FUTURE.>>GOODBYE. THAT WAS AWESOME!>>Reporter: FOR ETHAN, THERE CALL FROM TERRY FOX’S BROTHER TO THANK HIM IS A REWARD FAR SWEETER THAN HALLOWEEN TREATS. CHRIS O’NEIL-YATES, CBC NEWS, ROACHES LINE.>>>A HOMEOWNER IN CLARONVILLE HAS GONE ALL OUT ON THE OUTSIDE OF HER HOME AND INSIDE OF HER HOME. WE’LL SHOW YOU MORE COMING UP ON HERE AND NOW>>ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FORECASTS OF ASHLEY AND YOU DON’T LOOK QUITE YOURSELF. THERE’S LESS OF YOU.>>YEAH, THIS FORECAST KIND OF SHOOK ME TO THE BONE.>>WHATEVER DIET YOU’RE ON, SHARE THAT WITH ME BECAUSE YOU LOOK LESS BUT I’M INTERESTED IN THAT SO SHARE THAT WITH ME AT THE END OF THE SHOW.>>I DON’T KNOW YOU WANT IT BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT THIS TYPE OF STRESS AS FAR AS OUR FORECAST GOES. NO, JUST KIDDING. WE ARE LOOKING AT THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT WEATHER, I WOULD SAY, MOVING THROUGH PARTS OF THE NORTHERN PORTION OF OR AT LEAST PARTS OF LABRADOR AND WE HAVE THAT RAIN MOVING IN SO LITTLE TRICK OR TREATERS, EVEN TOWARDS CENTRAL, STARTING TO SEE SOME OF THAT RAIN AND THAT’S UNFORTUNATELY, GOING TO CONTINUE TONIGHT. THE BULK OF THE PRECIPITATION MOVES IN OVERNIGHT. YOU CAN SEE THAT OVER ONTARIO RIGHT NOW AND THAT IS SNOW UP THROUGH LABRADOR BECAUSE YOUR TEMPERATURES ARE SIGNIFICANTLY COOLER. -2° FOR LAB CITY RIGHT NOW AND WE DO HAVE THOSE TEMPERATURES IN THE DOUBLE DIGITS FOR ST. JOHN AND LOVELY WEATHER. 8° SHOULD BE THE EVENING TEMPERATURE AND THOSE WINDS WILL PICK UP EVENTUALLY, 40 TO 60 KILOMETRES AN HOUR WITH THAT RAIN REALLY HEAVY AT TIMES, AS I MENTIONED ALONG THE WEST COAST. 12° THIS LAB CITY SITTING AT -7°. YOU CAN SEE THE HEAVY RAIN MOVING IN, THAT SOUTHERLY FLOW IS BRINGING IN A PUSH OF MILD AIR, BUT ANYTHING NORTH OF THE WARMFRONT WILL STAY AS KNOW. THE RAIN-SNOW LINE IS RIGHT ALONG THE STRAITS AND EVEN ALONG PARTS OF THE SOUTHEASTERN PORTION OF LABRADOR, YOU’LL SEE A RAIN-SNOW MIX. ANYTHING INLAND SHOULD FALL AS SNOW BUT INLAND, RAIN-SNOW MIX AND IT IS LOOKING LIKE IT WILL BE THOSE STRONG WINDS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON TOMORROW FOR MOST OF THE ISLAND. ALONG THE WEST COAST IS WHERE WE HAVE WIND WARNINGS, BUT TEMPERATURES, LIKE I SAID, THE PUSH OF WARM AIR IS IN PLAY, 16° TO 18° ACROSS THE BOARD AND COOLER ALONG THE SOUTH COAST BECAUSE WE’RE IN ON-SHORE FLOW. IN THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE GREAT NORTHERN PENINSULA, YOU’RE LOOKING AT TEMPERATURES ACTUALLY FALLING THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW. YOU’RE ONLY GOING TO REACH THE SINGLE DIGITS AND IT WON’T GET ANY WARMER THAN THAT. ANYTHING TO THE NORTH WILL STAY AS SNOW. THE OTHER PUSH OF SOME COLDER AIR, ALONG WITH MORE SNOW IS ON THE WAY ON FRIDAY. WE DO HAVE WARNINGS IN PLACE ALONG THE WEST COAST FOR THE ISLAND WITH SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL OVERNIGHT TONIGHT AND THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW AND THAT’S GOING TO BE JOINED BY WIND WARNINGS TOMORROW AFTERNOON AND UP THROUGH LABRADOR, WE’RE LOOKING AT THOSE WINTER STORM WATCHES. SO ALL OF THE DETAILS ON WHEN THE SNOW WILL START, WHEN IT WILL START, HOW MUCH RAIN IS ON THE WANE COMING UP IN A LITTLE BIT.>>AS YOU KNOW, THERE’S A CERTAIN BIT OF MAGIC ASHLEY DOES THANKS TO A CERTAIN SCREEN.>>THE GREEN SCREEN. I WAS WEARING A GREEN SCREEN SUIT AND PUT A LITTLE SKELETON ON ME.>>IT WORKS WELL.>>IT WORKED REALLY WELL AND I I WAS HAPPY WITH THAT. I WAS TRYING TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING FUN AND INTERESTING THIS YEAR.>>ANOTHER SPEAKKY FORECAST SPOR IN THE PROGRAMME.>>>MY COHOST IS AT A HAUNTED HOUSE IN CLARENVILLE TONIGHT.>>SOME ARE GOING THE EXTRA MILE TO GET IN THE SPIRIT.>>AND SOME ARE TRYING OUT CASKETS, YES, THEY ARE. TAKE A LOOK. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>I’M RENEE HOULIHAN AND I’M THE DIRECTOR HERE. THE THEME OF THE NIGHT IS CLUB MED TURNS TO CLUB DEAD AND THIS IS A TIME WHEN THE RESIDENTS TAKE OVER AND MAYHEM ENSUES. ALL OF OUR SENIORS HAVE BEEN WORKING ON CHARACTERS ALL WEEK THAT THEY THINK WOULD BE HORRIFYINGLY TERRIBLE. WHOA!>>IT’S BEEN SO FUN. YOU KNOW, THE REAL STORY FOR ME IS THE VITALITY AND THE SENSE OF HUMOUR THE RESIDENTS HAVE ATTACKED THIS PROJECT WITH AND ATTACK IS THE WORD. WE HAD CASKETS COME IN AND I SAID WE NEED A COUPLE OF CASKETS AND THE RESIDENTS WERE LIKE, LET ME IN! THEY ARE SO EXCITED AND DETERMINED TO MAKE THIS A WONDERFUL NIGHT FOR THE CHILDREN AND NO MATTER HOW LONG OR HOW MANY HOURS THEY HAVE TO SIT, THEY STAY IN THEIR SPACE UNTIL THE LAST CHILD GOES THROUGH.>>MY FULL NAME IS TERESA LAWRENCE, I’M 91. SOME DAYS I FEEL LIKE 90. [ Laughter ] I’M QUITE A FAN OF HALLOWEEN. THE KIDS ENJOY IT AND I WOULDN’T DO IT IF I DIDN’T ENJOY IT, YOU KNOW.>>IT’S REALLY SWEET TO SEE THE DIFFERENT GENERATIONS HANG OUT AND ALL THAT STUFF. IT’S AMAZING.>>I’M SURE THEY ALL ENJOY IT.>>THE SENIOR SENSE OF HUMOUR AND THEIR STAMINA IS ONE PART BUT THE OTHER PART NEAR AND DEAR TO MY HEART IS HOW EVERYBODY HAS RALLIED TOGETHER. WE HAVE RYAN’S FUNERAL HOME HERE, LIKE A HEARSE IN THE PARKING LOT, BACKED UP TO THE DOOR WITH THE SPOOKY MOVEMENT. THEY START OFF KIND OF STIFF AND, YOU KNOW, SHY AND BY THE END OF THE NIGHT, THEY’RE GEL LING. WE DID THIS LAST YEAR AND WE THOUGHT IF WE GET 30 OR 40 GRANDCHILDREN, WOULDN’T THAT BE GREAT. INSTEAD, WE HAD OVER 400 CHILDREN TO COME THROUGH. IF THESE SENIORS ARE WILLING TAKE ON THIS WORKLOAD AT 95 AND 92, WE’RE GOING TO SUPPORT IT. THIS IS NOT FOR THE WEAK OF HEART. THIS IS TERRIFYING FROM ZOMBIE GRANDMOTHERS TO CASKETS TO HEADS ON PLATTERS, TO, YOU KNOW, OPERATING TABLES WITH GUTS ALL OVER. THIS IS A STELLAR PROJECT BY THE SENIORS. [ Laughter ]>>STELLAR, OK, FROM ONE HAUNTED HOUSE TO ANOTHER, AND MY MCCOBB COHOST, MEG ROBERTS IN CLARENVILLE. SO SHOW US AROUND.>>Reporter: I’M APPREHENSIVE OF DOING THAT BECAUSE EVERYWHERE I WALK, THERE COULD BE SOMETHING POPPING OUT AT ME. IF YOU’RE IN THE BUSINESS OF BEING SCARED, THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE. THESE LADIES ARE MUCH, MUCH TOUGHER THAN I AM. MOM, WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>IT’S AWESOME. IT’S WONDERFUL FOR PEOPLE TO COME SEE. IT’S A LITTLE SCARRY. [ Laughter ]>>Reporter: WHAT DID YOU THINK OF IT.>>I LIKE THE BATHROOM AND LIVING ROOM BECAUSE THERE’S, LIKE, SPIDERS ALL OVER THE LIVING ROOM. AND THE BATHROOM THERE’S A GUY IN THE SHOWER WITH BLOOD ON HIM AND A KNIFE THAT LOOKS REAL.>>Reporter: YOU HAD TO HAVE BEEN SCARED.>>A LITTLE BIT.>>Reporter: THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME YOU’VE BEEN HERE BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN PUTTING THIS ON FOR ABOUT TEN YEARS NOW. DID YOU IT GET BETTER EVERY YEAR? WHAT DO YOU NOTICE YEAR AFTER YEAR?>>IT’S A LOT BETTER THIS YEAR THAN LAST YEAR INDEPENDENCE A THERE’S A LOT MORE SCARIER THINGS.>>Reporter: WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS DOES FOR THE COMMUNITY? A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GEEKED UP AND WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE COMMUNITY?>>A LOT OF PEOPLE ENJOY IT.

I GOT A LOT.>>Reporter: DO YOU THINK THAT YOU’LL BE COMING BACK NEXT YEAR?>>YEP, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY DEFINITELY I’M COMING BACK HERE. [ Laughter ]>>Reporter: MAYBE WITH A DIFFERENT COSTUME.>>YES. I’M GOING TO BE A PERSON THAT GOT BIT BY A ZOMBIE BUT IS NOT A ZOMBIE.>>Reporter: PERFECT, PERFECT! YOU’VE SEEN THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE NOW AND YOU HAVE TO SEE THE INSIDE OF THE HOUSE AND THAT’S COMING UP ON HERE AND NOW.>>ANTHONY, LET ME FINISH HERE. THAT’S AN IMPORTANT QUESTION AND I NEED TO FINISH IT. AFTER A COUPLE OF WEEKS OF INTERVIEW REQUESTS FROM US AND A PRIVACY COMMISSIONER INVESTIGATION, JERRY BURNS SITS DOWN TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT NORTHERN HARVEST SALMON DIE OFF. WHAT HE KNEW AND WHAT HE SAYS HE COULD NOT DISCLOSE.>>SOCIAL WORKERS ARE WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK TO TRY TO CONTROL WHAT THE COMMUNITY SAYS IS A SUICIDE CRISIS. TEN PEOPLE HAVE TRIED TO TAKE THEIR OWN LIVES OVER THE PAST WEEK AND POSSIBLY LINKED TO MOUNTING GRIEF AFTER A DOZEN DEATHS OVER THE PAST YEAR. SO JACOB, WHAT’S THE LATEST AND WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT THIS?>>Reporter: WELL, ANTHONY, THIS IS A REALLY YOUNG COMMUNITY AND WHAT I’VE BEEN HEARING FROM MANY PEOPLE IS THAT KIDS NEED THINGS TO DO, POSITIVE ACTIVITIES THAT WILL KEEP THEIR MINDS OCCUPIED AND KEEP THEM OFF THE STREET. ROSE AND HERMAN MONTAGUE WATCH VIDEOS OF THE THE WAY THINGS USED TO BE. IT’S BEEN A DIFFICULT TIME FOR THE FAMILY. THEY’VE LOST FOUR IN JUST THE LAST YEAR.>>WE ARE VERY HURT AND WE STILL GRIEVE A LOT AND FAMILIES DON’T TALK MUCH ABOUT IT. WHEN WE DO, IT’S — WE TRY TO BRING UP THE GOOD MEMORIES.>>Reporter: LIFE HAS CHANGED DRASTICALLY FOR ROSE SINCE SHE WAS A CHILD. KIDS HAVE TO GET THEIR HEADS OUT OF TECHNOLOGY IS BACK ON THE LAND AND THE WAY OF LIFE.>>I GREW UP IN A TENT BECAUSE I WAS IN THE COUNTRY ALL DAY. AND HERE, I’LL FIND STUFF HERE IN THE COMMUNITY.>>Reporter: NEED LIKE TO SEE ON-THE-LAND PROGRAMMING FOR KIDS, SPORTS, RECREATION, FUN THINGS AWAY FROM VICES SUCH AS ALCOHOL AND DRUGS.>>I THINK WE DON’T HAVE MUCH HERE AND I THINK THERE COULD BE MORE MONEY REDIRECTED AT THESE THINGS TO FIX THESE PROBLEMS ON THE RESERVES THAT WE LIVE IN.>>THIS TRAGEDY HAPPENED AND IT’S AFFECTED A LOT OF PEOPLE.>>Reporter: EVEN BEFORE LAST WEEKEND’S TRAGIC DROWNING, THE BAND WAS SEARCHING FOR WAYS TO BRING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER AND TO DEAL WITH THE GRIEF OF LOSING SO MANY OF THEIR OWN.>>THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN, LIKE, OVERNIGHT AND THAT’S WHERE I WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN. IT DIDN’T HAPPEN OVERNIGHT. WE’VE BEEN DEALING WITH A LOT OF COMPLEX ISSUES IN OUR COMMUNITY, THE SOCIAL ISSUES, BUT ALSO THE CULTURAL ISSUES, AS WELL, TOO.>>Reporter: QP POINTS OUT THAT A LARGE NUMBER OF THEIR POPULATION IS UNDER THE AGE OF 19 AND OVERWHELMING TO MEET THE DEMANDS THAT IT PRESENTS TO THE COMMUNITY. BUT THEY SAY THEY’RE ASKED TO DEAL WITH INFRASTRUCTURE IS SOCIAL FUNDING GOES WAY BACK AND IN THE PAST, GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN UNRESPONSIVE.>>20 YEARS AGO, WE PUT A PROPOSAL TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT LOOKING FOR FUNDING TO PROVIDE SOCIAL WORK TRAINING, TO PROVIDE EDUCATION, HEALTH CAREERS AND FOR SOCIAL WORK, WE WERE TURNED DOWN AND WE KNEW THAT WE WOULD HIT THIS WALL AT SOME POINT IN THE COMING YEARS. AND HERE WE ARE.>>Reporter: THAT SOCIAL PROBLEM HAS HIT A BREAKING POINT ACCORDING TO THE BAND AND IT’S ASKING FOR HELP. IT’S PUT JOB ADS UP, LOOKING FOR ABOUT A DOZEN SUPPORT WORKERS TO COME TO THE COMMUNITY, AS WELL AS TWO OUTREACH WORKERS. REPORTING LIVE FOR HERE AND NOW IN HAPPY VALLEY GOOSE BAY, I’M JACOB BARKER.>>>JERRY BURN HAS SENT TO THE PRIVACY COMMISSION A LETTER DESCRIBING HIS DEPARTMENT’S CONDUCT DURING THE MASSIVE SALMON DIE-OFF ON THE SOUTH COAST AND SAYS THE PRACTISE IN THE PAST WAS NOT TO DISCLOSE MASS MORTALITY EVENTS AND NOW THE COMMISSIONER WILL EXAMINE WHAT SHOULD OR SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN TOLD TO THE PUBLIC DURING THE RECENT FISH KILL ON THE COAST AND AS A RESULT OF WHAT HAPPENED, Mr. BURNS SAYS HIS DEPARTMENT WILL ENSURE COMPANIES WILL DISCLOSE WHEN LARGE NUMBERS OF FISH DIE FOR MYSTERIOUS REASONS IN THE FUTURE. JERRY BURN IS IN OUR OFFICE AND GATE TO SEE YOU.>>GREAT TO SEE YOU.>>SO,.>> Mr. BURN, WHY DID YOU KEEP MILLIONS OF DEAD SALMON A SECRET?>>I DON’T THINK IT WAS A SECRET. IT WAS FULL INTENTION TO DISCLOSE. AFTER THE INVESTIGATION CONCLUDED, ANTHONY I THINK IT’S REASONABLE WHEN A REGULATORY BODY IS NOT MADE AWARE OF A FISH KILL OR SITUATION LIKE THIS, THAT THERE’S A RESPONSIBILITY TO INVESTIGATE. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE. WHETHER YOU’RE A PEACE OFFICER, YOU KNOW, WHETHER THERE’S AN INVESTIGATION FROM A PEACE OFFICER RELATED TO OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY OR EVEN IF A DIFFERENT EXTREME OR CIRCUMSTANCE, A CRIMINAL MATTER BY A POLICE OFFICER, DURING THE ACTIVE COURSE OF INVESTIGATIONS, IT IS NOT A NORMAL COURSE OF BUSINESS TO RELEASE DETAILS, AND SO WE INTENDED TO DO SO WHEN THE INVESTIGATION WAS OVER.>>WITH RESPECT TO ANY ACTIVE INVESTIGATION, YOU WERE MADE AWARE OF THE VOLUME OF DEAD FISH THAT WERE THERE AND WHY DID YOU SIDE WITH THE COMPANY AND BASICALLY CONCEAL THIS ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER INSTEAD OF DOING YOUR DUTY AS A MINISTER OF THE CROWN AND TELLING PEOPLE IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR THAT THERE WAS AN ENVIRONMENTAL MESS THAT HAD TO BE CLEANED UP?>>A COUPLE OF LOADED POINTS THERE. YOU SAID IT WAS AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER AND THAT’S WHERE FISHERIES AND OCEAN’S CANADA WILL MAKE A DETERMINATION. I CANNOT SAY WHAT FISHERIES AND OCEAN’S CANADA WILL FIND. IT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY, ANTHONY, I WAS REALLY, REALLY QUITE INSIST TENT TO GET THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT INVOLVED TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE INVOLVED BECAUSE UNDER THE CONSTITUTION AND UNDER THE FEDERAL FISHERIES ACT, IT’S THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHICH HAS PRIVACY ON ISSUES AROUND — IMPACT ON POLLUTION AND MIGRATORY BIRDS. THEY HAVE THE GREATEST ROLE. WE’LL SEE WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SAYS IN DUE COURSE.>>BUT YOU REGULATE THIS INDUSTRY AND ARE YOU TELLING US THAT 2.6 MILLION DEAD FISH DYING VERY QUICKLY, BEING CLEANED UP FOR MORE THAN A MONTH ISN’T AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER OR ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM?>>IT’S CLEARLY A PROBLEM FOR THE FARMER, FOR THE FISH, CLEARLY A PROBLEM FOR THE AREA AND THAT DESERVES INVESTIGATION AS TO WHAT THE PROBLEM IS TO THE ENVIRONMENT. YOU KNOW WHAT, ANTHONY, IT’S REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT, I THINK, THAT MEASURED VIEWS, THAT INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATORS ARE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR WORK AND THAT INCLUDES OFFICIALS FROM OCEAN’S CANADA, ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE CANADA, TRANSPORTATION CANADA, THE CANADIAN WILDLIFE SERVICE, TO DETERMINE EXACTLY AS WHAT YOU DESCRIBE AS AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER, WHETHER OR NOT THEY FEEL IT’S AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER. I CANNOT SAY THAT AND IF I WERE TO PROJECT TO YOU I HAVE AN INFORMED OPINION AS TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED, I THINK YOU WOULD BE SPINNING THIS INTERVIEW AROUND AND QUESTIONING, WHAT BASIS DO YOU HAVE TO USE TO MAKE THAT CONCLUSION.>>TALK ABOUT AUTHORITY. JERRY BURN, YOU ARE PROBABLY THE MOST EXPERIENCED POLITICIAN IN THIS PROVINCE.>>WELL, THANK YOU.>>YOU HAVE SERVED FOR A LONG TIME AND YOU KNOW THE KIND OF DISCRETIONARY POWER A MINISTER HAS. WHEN YOU REALIZED THIS COMPANY WAS NOT COMING CLEAN, YOU COULD HAVE SAID, LOOK, GUYS, I HAVE TO COME CLEAN. YOU SAY YOU URGED THIS COMPANY TO COME CLEAN AND THEY DIDN’T. DON’T YOU THINK YOU HAD A DUTY TO ACTUALLY TELL US WHAT WAS GOING ON.>>YEAH, AND THE DUTY TO TELL WHAT’S GOING ON IS TO INVESTIGATE, TO ENSURE THAT YOU KNOW –>>THAT’S NOT TELLING. YOU KNOW.>>NO,.>>Antoni: ANTHONY, LET ME FI. WHEN WE WERE INFORMED ON SEPTEMBER 3rd THERE WAS A SIGNIFICANT MASS MORTALITY EVENT, I COULD NOT COME TO THE CONCLUSION ANYWAY THAT WHAT THE COMPANY WAS TELLING ME WAS CORRECT, IT WAS A WANT-WATER EVENT. WE GOT OUT, GOT OUR VETERINARIANS AND OUR SCIENTISTS TOGETHER TO MAKE A CONCLUSION ON THAT POINT.>>RIGHT.>>THAT INVESTIGATION, BY THE WAY, IS STILL UNDERWAY. IN TERMS OF REVEALING THE CONTENTS OF AN INVESTIGATION OR THE ELEMENTS OF AN INVESTIGATION, I’LL PUT IT INTO YOU IN A CONTEXT WHICH I THINK MOST PEOPLE WILL APPRECIATE. HAD I REVEALED INFORMATION DURING THE COURSE OF AN INVESTIGATION WHICH CAUSED THE INVESTIGATION TO FAIL OR TO FLOUNDER, TO CAUSE THAT NO CHARGES WOULD BE LAID EVEN IF THEY MIGHT HAVE OTHERWISE BEEN WARRANTED, YOU, ANTHONY GERMAIN, WOULD BE HAVING A DIFFERENT CONVERSATION WITH ME SAYING YOU’RE A MAN OF INTEGRITY.>>YOU’RE RIGHT.>>YOU WOULD SAY, YOU SHOULD ALLOW THE INVESTIGATION TO OCCUR AND YOU MADE THIS INVESTIGATION GO AWAY.>>HOWEVER, WHAT HAPPENED HERE, DEAD FISH STARTED POPPING UP, FAT WAS SEEN EVERYWHERE, A MASSIVE CLEAN-UP WAS UNDERWAY AND THE FFAW THAT LET THE PEOPLE IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR KNOW THIS. THREE AND A HALF WEEKS AFTER IT STARTED AND YOU KNEW THAT ENTIRE TIME AND INSTEAD OF LEARNING THIS FROM A MINISTER, WE LEARNED IT FROM A UNION. NOW HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?>>BECAUSE AN INVESTIGATION WAS UNDERWAY. THE PEOPLE KNOW THE FULL FACTS OF WHAT HAPPENED NEXT, AS WELL. WITH THAT SAID, WE HAVE INSTITUTED A POLICIES AND PROCEDURE PROGRAMME WHERE THE COMPANY WILL, INDEED, SELF-DISCLOSE AND WE STARTED THAT IN 2017. I BECAME FISHERY’S MINISTER BACK ON AUGUST 1 OF 2017 AND BY SEPTEMBER 26th, I ANNOUNCED A FULL SCALE FEW OF ALL AGRICULTURAL REGULATIONS AND INCLUDED IN THAT WAS DISCLOSURE. AS YOU POINTED OUT, THE PAST GOVERNMENT TOOK A FORMAL DECISION NOT TO DISCLOSE ANYTHING AND ANTHONY GERMAIN, WHAT YOU ALSO KNOW NOW FROM 2012 TO 2014, OVER FOUR MILLION FISH PERISHED FROM SEVEN DIFFERENT EVENTS WHERE THERE WAS NO SET DISCLOSURE AND THAT WAS THE SET PATTERN. WE DECIDED TO CHANGE THAT BECAUSE THAT WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO ME. AS A RESULT, NEW REGULATIONS CUP INTO PLACE.>>THAT’S THE TRICKY PART WITH WHAT YOU’RE SAYING NOW, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT. WAS THAT WE COULDN’T DISCLOSE AND NOW YOU’RE SAYING AS A RESULT OF ALL OF THIS, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO. SO WHAT’S CHANGED? HOW COME YOU COULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT BEFORE NOW?>>BECAUSE IT KILL BE THE COMPANY THAT WILL DISCLOSE SO WE CAN MAINTAIN OUR INDEPENDENCE AND THEY MUST DISCLOSE WHAT HAPPENED ON THEIR SITE FROM THAT POINT OF VIEW AND THAT COMPONENT IS A PART OF OUR INVESTIGATION.>>IF YOU WERE WILLING TO SIT ON IT THIS TIME, WHY SHOULD PEOPLE TRUST, OK, JERRY BURNS SAYS OK, NEXT TIME THEY’LL DISCLOSE. BECAUSE THIS TIME YOU SAID, COMPANY, COMPANY, PLEASE LET THEM KNOW AND HOW DO WE KNOW YOU WON’T DO IT NEXT TIME?>>THE SUPER CHILL EVENT OF 2014, WHERE OVER TWO MILLION FISH PERISHED AND THE INCIDENT IN 2019, WHERE 2.6 MILLION SALMON FACED MORTALITY BECAUSE OF WARMER WATER TEMPERATURES, AS WE UNDERSTAND IT, WHILE THE INVESTIGATION STILL GOES ON. WITH THAT SAID, MOST EVENTS ARE DISEASE-RELATED. IT’S THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT THAT PICKS THAT UP. WE SPEND A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR AS A GOVERNMENT DOING OVERSIGHT, OVERSIGHT OF THE AGRICULTURE INDUSTRY, A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR DOING TESTS ON THE HEALTH OF THE FISH AND WE’RE CONTINUING TO DO THAT.>>Mr. BURN, IT’S A VAST SUBJECT. APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN THE HOUSE NEXT WEEK.>>INDEED. THE HOUSE IS MY FAVOURITE. MY MOST FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR.>>IT’S ALWAYS A CHALLENGE TO INTERVIEW JERRY BURN AND I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>MY>>>WELCOME BACK TO HERE AND NOW. THE SPOOK CREEST TIME OF THE YEAR AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE GETTING INTO THE SPIRIT, ESPECIALLY ONE OWNER IN CLARENVILLE. WE HAVE SHOWN YOU THE OUTSIDE AND THIS IS THE INSIDE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE LIVING ROOM. SHE HAS COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED IT AND YOU CAN SEE SPIDERWEBS ON THE CEILING AND SHE HAS COFFINS AND A LOT OF SPOOKY STUFF. THIS IS NOT FOR THE LIGHT HERE. I AM NERVOUS JUST BEING IN HERE AND WE’LL TAKE A LOOK AT THE BATHROOM AND THIS IS MY FAVOURITE PART. SHE HAS THE HALLWAY ALL LINED AND BARELY LOOKS LIKE A HOUSE IN LEER. HERE.>>MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL, AM I FAIREST OF ALL?>>THIS IS WHERE WE FIND DENISE, THE HOMEOWNER HERE. OK, DENISE, YOU HAVE TO TELL ME, WHY DO THIS?>>WELL, IT’S A LOT OF FUN FOR THE KIDS AND MYSELF, AS WELL. AND IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYBODY ENJOYS A LITTLE BIT OF SCARRINESS EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE.>>WHY DID YOU START THIS?>>IT STARTED ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO FOR MY OLDEST DAUGHTER’S BIRTHDAY AND HAS GROWN SINCE THEN.>>SO I GUESS, DOES YOUR DAUGHTER WANT THIS?>>SHE DID. SHE’S OLDER NOW, BUT THE YOUNGEST ONE ENJOYS IT NOW AND SO DO THE REST OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD KIDS.>>WHEN PEOPLE WALK IN HERE, THEY SAY, HOW DOES SHE DO THIS. SO WHAT GOES INTO THIS?>>A LOT OF LOVE AND HARD WORK.>>WHERE DO YOU GET ALL OF THE STUFF FROM?>>COMBS IS KIND TO DONATE AND I RECYCLE AND MOST IS HANDMADE AND WE WORK TO CREATE.>>I KEEP ASKING ABOUT THE CLEAN-UP. SO WHAT GOES INTO THE CLEAN-UP?>>THAT’S PROBABLY THES EASIEST PART.>>WHERE DO YOU STORE IT ALL?>>MY BASEMENT.>>WHEN PEOPLE COME IN AND SEE THEIR REACTIONS, WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF THAT?>>A LITTLE CHUCKLE, SOMETIMES, ELSE WITH SOME PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED AS TO WHAT’S INSIDE VERSUS OUTSIDE, AS WELL.>>AWESOME. WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE AND I KNOW IT’S A BUSY NIGHT FOR YOU SO WE APPRECIATE YOU CHATTING. BEFORE WE GO, I WANT TO SHOW YOU ONE MORE PLACE REALLY QUICKLY. THIS HERE IN THE KITCHEN AREA AND IT’S JUST THE CREATIVITY THAT WENT INTO THIS IS JUST ABSOLUTELY CRAZY. YOU’VE DONE SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB, DENISE.>>THAT’S HORRIBLE! [ Laughter ]>>YES. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, ANTHONY, I HAVEN’T PEED MY PANTS YET AND HAVEN’T CRIED YET SO I’M GOING TO GET OUT BEFORE ANY OF THAT HAPPENS.>>Anthony: WE DON’T WANT TO SEE EITHER OF THOSE THINGS ON TELEVISION, SO THANKS FOR THE COVERAGE AND GET THE GUY WITH THE AXE TO COOK YOU UP SOMETHING BEFORE YOU LEAVE. [ Laughter ] ANTHONY THAT’S MEG ROBERTS LIVE TONIGHT IN CLARENVILLE. [ Laughter ] [ ♪♪♪ ] ANTHONY JUST BEFORE WE GET TO THE WEATHER, A BIT MORE HALLOWEEN STUFF. THERE’S A HOUSE THAT SPARES NO EXPENSE WHEN IT COMES TO HALLOWEEN. CHECK THIS OUT.>>THIS MASTERPIECE IS ON HALEY’S PLACE AND IMAGINE HOW CREEPY THIS WOULD BE AT NIGHT. ANTHONY FOR YEARS, ROBERT FARREL HAS BEEN DECKING OUT HIS HOUSE FOR HALLOWEEN AND CHECK THAT OUT. NOT EVERYONE IS AS ELABORATE WITH THEIR DECORATIONS.>>NOPE. SOMETIMES IT’S QUITE SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE.>>Anthony: THIS IS UNIVERSITY AVENUE AND SOMEBODY IS IN THE WINDOW AND WHO IS THAT? YEAH, THAT’S MICHAEL MYERS. THAT’S CREEPY, VERY CREEPY.

BEFORE THE BELL RANG, TREATMENTS AT HOLY SPIRIT WERE GETTING KIDS IN THE SPIRIT. EACH YEAR THE DEPARTMENTS GO HEAD TO HEAD IN AN EPIC COSTUME COMPETITION AND IT’S PRETTY COMPETITIVE. TAKE A LOOK.>>THIS IS THE SEVENTH YEAR WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS AND ALL DEPARTMENTS HAVE STEPPED UP THE GAME. OUR TEACHERS GO ALL OUT AND THERE’S ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW THEY DO THE BEST THEY DO IN EVERYTHING THEY DO. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS DOES FOR THE KIDS.>>THAT WE’RE TOTALLY INVOLVED IN THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY AND HOPEFULLY THAT HELPS THEM TO BE A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY AND THE TWO GO HAND IN HAND.

JUST BEFORE WE WERE TALKING ABOUT ALL OF THE RAIN THAT IS ON THE WAY TONIGHT AND I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT WE’LL SEE. ALONG THE WEST AND SOUTH COAST IS WHERE WE SEE THE RAIN, HEAVY AT TIMES. THIS TAKES US THROUGH TO TOMORROW MORNING AND YOU CAN SEE AREAS SHOWING 50 TO 75-MILLIMETERS OF RAIN AND GROSS MOORE, 100-MILLIMETERS. 40 TO 60-MILLIMETERS OF RAIN AND THEN A THEM OF DIFFERENT WARNINGS IN PLACE. A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR LAB WEST, WINTER STORM WATCH IN STRAITS. YOU’LL SEE FREEZING RAIN CHANGING OVER TO RAIN AND YOU’RE LOOKING AT ABOUT, AGAIN, 40 TO 60-MILLIMETERS AFTER THAT HAPPENS. SO HERE IS A LOOK AT TOMORROW MORNING. WE’RE SEEING THAT BIG PUSH OF WARM AIR AND THAT SOUTHERLY FLOW AND THAT RAIN-SNOW LINE IS RIGHT ON THE STRAITS. ANYTHING NORTH OF THAT WILL BE SNOW. THE SECOND ROUND OF SNOW WILL MOVE IN FOR LABRADOR AND THAT’S WHY WE HAVE THOSE WINTER STORM WARNINGS. THE WINDS PICK UP, AS WELL WITHIN WE SEE REDUCED VISIBILITIES THROUGH THE DAY WITH QUITE A BIT OF SNOW. YOU CAN SEE -5° IS THE AFTERNOON HIGH FOR YOU ON FRIDAY AND THAT SYSTEM WILL MOVE THROUGH, NOT A LOT OF RAIN HAPPENING FOR EASTERN NEWFOUNDLAND. IT’S A WEST COAST THING FOR THE MAJORITY OF US. WE’LL SEE A COOL-DOWN HEADING INTO SATURDAY. OUR SNOWFALL AMOUNTS, LOOKING AT ANYWHERE FROM 20 TO 30 CENTIMETRES OF SNOW A. INLAND AREAS, MORE THAN LIKELY WILL BE THE MOST SNOW FROM 10 TO 20 CENTIMETRES IS POSSIBLE BY THE TIME THE END OF THE WEEKEND ROLLS AROUND. SO HERE IS A LOOK AT YOUR SATURDAY FORECAST. A COOL-DOWN AND THINGS SHOULD QUIET DOWN FOR THE MOST PART, 4° FOR CORNER BROOK AND HAPPY VALLEY GOOSE BAY LOOKING AT A CHANCE OF FLURRIES. THE NEXT DAY, NOT MOVING MUCH AFTER TOMORROW. BACK DOWN TO SEASONAL WITH A FEW SHOWERS IN PLAY ON SUNDAY, BUT OVERALL, PRETTY QUIET WEATHER-WISE FOR MOST OF US AND SAME THING FOR CENTRAL NEWFOUNDLAND, SUNDAY IS LOOKING RAINY BUT OTHER THAN THAT, SUNSHINE IN THE FORECAST. FOR WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND, LOOKING GREAT AND MONDAY, TUESDAY WILL BE CLOUDY, IT LOOKS LIKE AND EASTERN LABRADOR, HANGING ON TO WINDY CONDITIONS TOMORROW. SATURDAY AND SUNDAY FLURRIES STICK AROUND AND MONDAY, THE SUN SHOULD RETURN AND THEN WESTERN LABRADOR SIMILAR FORECAST BUT WITH FLURRIES TO THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK.>>TAKE A LOOK AT THAT.>>WE’LL TELL YOU WHERE>>NO SURPRISE, PUMPKIN, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, WAS ON THE MENU AT MANY ZOOS TODAY.>>IN UKRAINE, THEY’RE DIGGING INTO A SPECIAL TREAT AND THE RACCOONS WERE NOT LEFT OUT.>>OF COURSE, RACCOONS ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO GET TO THE FOOD. PUMPKIN WAS FOUND AT BELGIUM’S BIGGEST ZOO AND PRIMEMATES GOT INTO IT. HIPPOS GOBBLED IT UP WHOLE AND YOU HAVE A SCHOOL FULL OF KIDS THERE. THEY ATE A WHOLE PUMPKIN IN JUST A FEW BITES.>>THAT’S INSANE!>>HUGE ANIMALS.>>LOOK AT THE JOWELS ON THAT.>>OH, JEEZ, ANTHONY. YOU’RE LUCKY I SAW YOU DO THAT. [ Laughter ]>>BECAUSE GARGOILS NEED LOVE TO. IF YOU’RE HEADING OUT, DRIVE SLOWLY, DON’T GO IN A RUSH AND DON’T HIT ANY GARGOILS.>>DON’T DO THAT, NO. THAT’S IT.>>HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND WE’LL END ON OUR WEATHER PHOTO FOR THE NIGHT TONIGHT. THERE IT IS. NOT SUCH A SCARRY SCENE, BEAUTIFUL, CALM FOGGY EVENING.
