Global National: Nov. 25, 2021 | Anxiety rises in flood-ravaged parts of BC as more rain falls

British Columbia is getting soaked again, with a parade of storms expected in the days ahead. Parts of the province are still trying to recover from floods that struck more than a week ago. Heather Yourex-West reports on the anxiety among people in Abbotsford, and how they’re preparing for more rain.

Meanwhile on the opposite coast, the cleanup is on in Atlantic Canada after raging floodwaters washed out roads and cut off communities in an unprecedented storm. Ross Lord reports on the damage and how RCMP came to the rescue of a couple and their dog in Newfoundland and Labrador.

After becoming acting chief of the defence staff, Gen. Wayne Eyre is officially getting the job. Mercedes Stephenson looks at what challenges lie ahead for Eyre as the Canadian Armed Forces grapples with its sexual misconduct crisis, and what happens to his predecessor, Adm. Art McDonald.

In Europe, at least 27 migrants desperately trying to reach the United Kingdom died in the English Channel after their boat sank. Both France and Britain say they’ll beef up efforts to save lives, but as Crystal Goomansingh reports, aid groups say refugees need better options.

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole spent much of the 2021 federal election campaigning virtually from a studio in downtown Ottawa, which cost $1 million in party funds, sources tell Global News. Mike Le Couteur looks at the eyebrows being raised over that expense, what the Conservatives bought using taxpayer money, and the lingering questions about O’Toole’s leadership.

As the Taliban tightens its grip in Afghanistan, the regime is cracking down on the country’s journalists and press freedoms, sometimes with deadly force. Jeff Semple looks at how women Afghan journalists in particular are vulnerable, and what the situation means for journalists left in the country.

Plus, decades after The Beatles went their separate ways, the new documentary miniseries "The Beatles: Get Back" reveals how the influential band produced its final album. As Eric Sorensen reports, previously unseen footage sheds light on what may have driven John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr apart, and whether Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono is really to blame.
