Global National: Dec. 7

The Bank of Canada has raised its benchmark interest rate by 50 basis points to 4.25 per cent, capping a year where it was hiked seven times by a combined 400 basis points. How this hike will affect the bottom line of homeowners, why the central bank may cool it with the increases for a while, and how inflation has everyone - from businesses to consumers - trying to cut back. German police have carried out their largest anti-terror operation, raiding Reichsbuerger, a far-right group suspected of plotting to overthrow the government in an armed coup. What the group stands for, and some of the people who were arrested. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and "the spirit of Ukraine" have been named Time magazine's person of the year. The fearlessness of the war-torn nation's president and people, and how they've defied Russian President Vladimir Putin. Plus, Canada's new coin honouring the late Queen Elizabeth II. What makes it unique, and when you could end up with one in your wallet. And bovine intervention: see the cows that mooooved in on a fugitive.
