Global National: September 30, 2022

Special events took place in Canada's capital to mark Canada’s second annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Ukrainian military intelligence claims the risk of Russia using nuclear weapons is now "very high," while Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelenskyy announced a move to fast-track an application for Ukrainian NATO membership, marking further escalation in the conflict. In the U.S., Hurricane Ian has made its second landfall, this time in South Carolina. More than two hundred thousand people are without power and the storm is barrelling north with the threat of more high winds and a powerful storm surge. From Hurricane Fiona to Hurricane Ian, even for those spared a direct hit, the ripple effect on supply chains may still be felt. Finally, from a healing circle to a community reconnection program, initiatives to help Indigenous people are springing up across Canada.
