In Europe, Russia's invasion of Ukraine is leading to NATO's expansion, as Finland and Sweden signal joining the alliance; how the Kremlin is retaliating, as its aim to to diminish Western unity backfires. Plus, Crystal Goomansingh speaks with the survivors of Mariupol on their traumatic experiences, after escaping the war-torn city. In British Columbia, we revisit a 2006 case that saw 13 Indigenous men arrested - then their charges dropped - over dozens of eagle carcasses; a look at their years of demands for an apology amid claims of being wrongly accused.
