Global National: March 9, 2021 | Shake-up at the highest ranks of the Canadian military

In Ottawa, a shake-up at the highest ranks of the Canadian military. Lt.-Gen. Frances J. Allen has been appointed vice chief of the defence staff; the first woman to get that job. She takes on the role at a time when the Armed Forces is in crisis. The behaviour of two top military leaders is under investigation – former chief of the defence staff Gen. Jonathan Vance and his successor Adm. Art McDonald. And it’s going to take a lot more than one woman to fix the military’s deep-rooted problems. Mike Le Couteur has our top story.

The Queen responded Tuesday to that tell-all interview her grandson and his wife did with Oprah. Buckingham Palace released a statement on behalf of Her Majesty. It is brief and to-the-point, with critics arguing it took too long and it cast doubt on the couples claims about racism. As Crystal Goomansingh reports, the palace is unlikely to be drawn into handling this drama in public.

To try to get more seniors vaccinated faster, Quebec is going against federal advice. It has decided to offer the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine to people across all age groups, including those over the age of 65. Heather Yourex-West explains that decision and how it compares to other provinces.

There are questions being raised about a plan by some provinces to delay the time between the first and second doses by four months. About a dozen doctors, scientists and immunologists from Ontario and Quebec have sent a joint letter to Canada’s chief public health officer and provincial officials. Abigail Bimman is following this story.

The financial impact of COVID-19 could take years to fully understand. What we do know is that not every Canadian was dealt the same hand. Mike Drolet takes a look at the uneven economic impact of the last year.

In Minneapolis, a jury is now being chosen for the trial of the former police officer accused of killing George Floyd. As Jackson Proskow reports, even choosing the jury is expected to take weeks.

There is no way to adequately describe the last year. None of us has lived through something like it. Humans though are remarkably resilient and yet this pandemic has tested us physically, mentally and spiritually in ways we still can’t fully comprehend. Tonight we have reflections from those who confront life and death every day. Caryn Lieberman has their stories.
