Global National: Nov. 26, 2023 | Hamas seeks to extend truce with Israel after hostage-prisoner swap

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
There were no delays for the hostage and prisoner exchange between Israel and Hamas on Sunday, as both sides stuck to the terms of the deal. And there's hope the humanitarian pause may be extended, after reports surfaced that Hamas is seeking to push the pause beyond the initial four days. That could be crucial in securing the release of the only Canadian believed to be held by Hamas – Judih Weinstein – who was not on the list of those released today. Redmond Shannon has the details.

Israel maintains, as it has all along, that it will continue to prosecute its war against Hamas once the four-day truce has concluded. As hostages leave Gaza, more critical aid is making its way in, with approximately 200 aid trucks moving into Gaza each day since the pause in fighting began. As David Akin reports, the deadline only compounds the dire need to deliver critical aid to those who need it the most.

In Canada, a shooting in Winnipeg has left three people dead and two others critically injured. According to local police, a man and a woman were pronounced dead at the scene, while three additional victims were found and taken to the hospital in critical condition. One has since died as a result of his injuries. Katherine Dornian is following the story.

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith says her government will invoke its controversial Sovereignty Act on Monday, over the federal government's proposed clean electricity regulations. It will be the first time the act will be put into action, nearly a year after it was introduced. As Heather Yourex-West reports, other provinces are keeping a close eye on how it plays out.

Some people living with diabetes say they're being forced to switch their medication because of a shortage of Ozempic. The drug is approved for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes, but is also prescribed off-label for weight loss. Heidi Petracek reports on where that leaves Canadians who can't fill their prescriptions.

And finally, the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) goes well beyond Canadian borders. On the island of Okinawa in Japan, Indigenous rights have become a rallying cry. It's home to a U.S. military base used by Canada, a base that's been a source of conflict and controversy for decades. Neetu Garcha recently travelled to Okinawa and spoke with locals about what they want changed.
