Global National: April 24, 2022 | What does Macron’s re-election mean for France?

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
A sense of some much-needed stability in Europe tonight, at least on the leadership front. Emmanuel Macron is set to be re-elected as the president of France. Exit polls show he won almost 59 per cent of the run-off vote on Sunday with his opponent Marine Le Pen getting just over 41 per cent. The margin of victory is half that of the 2017 election, which was contested between the two same candidates. The second term for Macron spares France and its allies from a wartime shift of power. Redmond Shannon has the latest on the French election results.

Ukraine is now marking 60 days of war and tonight an adviser to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says he’s met with top U.S. officials in Kyiv. The country is also marking Orthodox Easter Sunday, and in a message to the world, Zelenskyy vowed resilience. Abigail Bimman looks at how Ukrainians are trying to celebrate Easter under the cloud of the Russian invasion.

More than five million people have escaped Ukraine since the war began according to the UN. More than 100,000 have applied to come to Canada and Ottawa says it will accept an unlimited number. The federal government has set up a program waiving a lot of Visa prerequisites – that’s supposed to speed things up but as Jayme Doll reports, some Ukrainians are saying it’s taking far too long.

As summer draws closer more Canadians are itching to travel abroad, especially as more restrictions ease from re-entering the country. As Marney Blunt reports, experts are still urging travellers to take precautions.

From groceries to gas, Canadians are paying more for just about everything these days — and you can add rent to the list of expenses that just keep climbing. Dan Spector reports on what’s being done to address affordability.

Welcome to Canada, We have not had a candidate worth voting for in Decades. Every election is about who I think will mess up the least rather than who is actually worthy to lead Canada, because none of them are.
