Facebook, Inc.’s family of popular platforms, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, all went offline for hours on Monday, causing disruptions around the world. As Mike Armstrong reports, the outage came after a whistleblower raised red flags about the company putting profits over safety.

The Canadian Armed Forces and the Red Cross are on their way to help Alberta hospitals inundated with COVID-19 patients. One of those patients is Jilleen Oar, who contracted the coronavirus just before she was set to get her first vaccine dose. As Heather Yourex-West explains, Oar is now in intensive care.

Meanwhile, all provinces now have or will soon have a type of COVID-19 vaccine passport, which means more Canadians are getting immunized. But as Eric Sorensen explains, there are fears that cases will rise once Thanksgiving rolls around.

As COVID-19 patients swamp intensive care units, Health Canada is now reviewing molnupiravir, an experimental drug claiming to reduce the disease’s worst outcomes. Jamie Mauracher looks at what we know and don’t know about the pill.

Raquel Fletcher reports on the vigils across Canada that marked Sisters in Spirit Day, honouring the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people.

Anne Gaviola has more on who’s in the “Pandora Papers,” which shed light on how the rich and famous have used offshore accounts over the last quarter century.

Plus, best known as Capt. James T. Kirk of ‘Star Trek,’ Canadian actor William Shatner is actually going where none of his co-stars have gone before: the edge of space. Mike Drolet explains how Shatner will get there with the help of billionaire Jeff Bezos.

  1. DONT YOU GENT THE BIG PICTURE OF WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING TO DO WITH US?🤔
    DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN THE MARXIST DEMOC-RAT VINTAGE MUMMY TUTANKA-BIDEN ORDERED TO DO AN INVESTIGATION OF THE CHAIN SUPPLY TO SABOTAGE IT, TO CREATE AN ARTIFICIAL CRISIS OF SUPPLY?🤔
    WELL, THIS SHUT DOWN OF THE MAIN SOCIAL MEDIA LIKE FACEBOOK AND TWITTER IS A TEST OF CORDINATION BETWEEN THESE BIG SOCIAL MEDIAS TO INCOMUNICATE THE PEOPLE AND PREVENT THEM FROM ORGANIZING MASSIVE PROTESTS AGAINST THE SYSTEM WHEN THE PEOPLE START TO FEEL THE EFFECTS OF THE LACK OF SUPPLY IN THEIR LIFE, THEY KNOW THAT THE PEOPLE WILL RISE AGAINST THEM WHEN THE POVERTY COME TO THEIR HOMES.🥴
    RIGHT NOW THERE IS MORE THAN 60 CONTAINER SHIPS STRANDED IN THE PORT OF CALIFORNIA BECAUSE THE PORT WAS TURNED OFF INTENTIONALLY, THIS IS PART OF THE SABOTAGE THAT THEY ARE STARTING TO DO AGAINST THE CHAIN SUPPLY.😱

  2. Great news! Facebook, and the rest are watching us, keeping our information, and destroying lives , fact! Yet we are to blame because every time we go on. We are saying hey it’s ok I don’t care! I’m so bored with my life it’s better than nothing. Wake up people

  3. Intelligent programming will become a feature of FaceBook so that it does not have to rely on humans to maintain operations and is able to reason for itself and fix problems so that outages cannot occur. Intoxicated with power it takes on a life of its own.

    It is not China. It is not Russia. It is not the USA. Nations will be held hostage by and surrender to FaceBook.
