ERIC, WHAT HAPPENED?>>WELL, MIKE, LATE MONDAY TWO BODIES WERE FOUND IN A HOME ON SETON AVENUE IN COQUITLAM. INVESTIGATORS REVEALED ONE WAS A HOMICIDE, BUT THEY HAD LITTLE WHO ARE TO SAY AT THE TIME. LAST NIGHT THE MOTHER OF EIGHT-YEAR-OLD OSCAR TAITINGER REVEALED HE WAS THE VICTIM OF MURDER AND HE’D BEEN FOUND NEAR THE BODY OF HIS 40-YEAR-OLD FATHER, MARK. NICOLE TAITINGER ALLEGE SHE HAD GONE TO THE R.C.M.P. ON SEPTEMBER 11TH SHORTLY AFTER LEAVING THE FAMILY HOME AND TOLD THE POLICE SHE BELIEVED THE THREE SONS WERE IN DANGER. BUT SHE CLAIMED THE R.C.M.P. DID NOTHING, AND OSCAR IS NOW DEAD. WE’VE PUT THOSE ALLEGATIONS TO R.C.M.P. HEADQUARTERS, AND WHILE THEY SAY THEY CAN’T SPEAK TO SPECIFICS, THEY SAY THE HANDLING OF THE CASE IS BEING INVESTIGATE, STATING: WE CAN ALSO CONFIRM THERE ARE FACTOR INVOLVED IN THIS FILE THAT MEET OUR CRITERIA TO CONDUCT A REVIEW, AND THAT REVIEW IS UNDERWAY.>>>THE REVIEW WOULD INCLUDE ANY POSSIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES OR PREVIOUS POLICE ACTIONS. THE FORCE SAYS UNTIL THAT REVIEW IS DONE THEY AREN’T IN A POSITION TO SAY MORE.>>Mike: ERIC, HAS THE MOTHER BEEN ANY MORE SPECIFIC IN HER ALLEGATIONS?>>NICOLE TAITINGER ALLEGES SHE FILED A REPORT WITH THE R.C.M.P.

NO ONE BELIEVED ME.” I SHOULD SAY THE CBC HAS NOT SEEN THE REPORT SHE FILED WITH THE R.C.M.P., BUT AGAIN, THE FORCE IS SAYING THEY ARE CONDUCTING A REVIEW OF HER PREVIOUS INTERACTIONS WITH THEIR MEMBERS.>>>MIKE?>>ALL RIGHT, THANKS, ERIC RANKIN REPORTING LIVE TONIGHT.>>>WELL; WINDY HERE IN VANCOUVER FOR SURE TODAY, AND TONIGHT. BUT A TERRIFYING SCENE PLAYED OUT DURING A WINDSTORM IN DOWNTOWN EDMONTON TODAY. HAVE A LOOK.>>THE WORKERS ON THAT SCAFFOLDING ARE OKAY. FIREFIGHTERS WERE ON THE SCENE WITHIN ABOUT FIVE MINUTES. CREWS HELPED GET THE ONE WORKER DOWN, AND HE WAS CHECKED OVER BY PARAMEDICS. THE OTHER WORKER HELPED LOWER THE SCAFFOLDING SAFELY TO THE GROUND. THE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY IS INVESTIGATING THIS INCIDENT.>>PLENTY OF WIND FOR US TODAY AND RIGHT NOW HERE ON THE SOUTH COAST, OUR BRETT SODERHOLM IS LIVE AT SUNSET BEACH TONIGHT WITH THE LATEST.>>YEAH, MIKE, IT’S BEEN AN ABSOLUTELY BLUSTERY DAY AND IT DOESN’T SHOW ANY SIGNS OF STOPPING RIGHT NOW. I’M AT THE SEAWALL AT THE INTERSECTION OF BEACH AVENUE AND CARDERO, AND IF YOU CAN SEE THIS BEHIND ME THE WAVES ARE GETTING GOING QUITE STRONGLY HERE. WHILE THIS HAS BEEN INCONVENIENT FOR QUITE A FEW PEOPLE, YOU CAN TELL OFF IN THE DENSE THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE KITE BOARDING AND INDICATED SURFING, MAKING THE BEST OF IT. IT SEEMS THAT PEOPLE IN VANCOUVER ARE INCREDIBLY ATHLETIC, STILL RUNNING, STILL ENJOYING IT EVEN THOUGH IT LAB A DISRUPTIVE KAY. SPECIFICALLY, THE FERRIES. IF YOU ARE NOT COUNSEL THERE ALREADY, IF YOU’RE TRYING TO GET OVER TO VANCOUVER ISLAND, IT IS NOT HAPPENING TONIGHT. B.C. FERRIES JUST ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO STAY HOME DUE TO THE NUMEROUS CANCELLATIONS AND THE CAR WAITS. IT’S NO GUARANTEE THAT THE ONES THAT ARE SCHEDULED FOR THIS EVENING ARE EVEN GOING TO GO, AND THAT’S GOING TO MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO LEAVE TOMORROW MORNING BY CONTRAST. IN ADDITION TO THAT, STANLEY PARK, WHICH YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME OFF IN THE DISTANCE, THAT IS CLOSED TONIGHT. NOBODY IS ALLOWED INTO THE PARK UNTIL TOMORROW MORNING AT ABOUT 6:00 O’CLOCK. THAT IS, OF COURSE, LED TO SOME CANCELLATIONS TO THE GHOST TRAIN WHICH IS DISAPPOINTING FOR MANY. BUT IN ADDITION TO THAT, POWER, THIS IS A MAJOR CONCERN THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON. B.C. HYDRO IS REPORTING THAT APPROXIMATELY 20,000 CUSTOMERS WERE WITHOUT POWER AT ONE POINT, AND IN ADDITION TO THAT WE HAVE DOWNED TREE LIMBS. I WANTED TO SHOW YOU A MAN WHO UNFORTUNATELY WENT THROUGH A BIT OF A SITUATION THIS AFTERNOON WHEN A TREE FELL ON TO HIS CAR.>>WE WERE GONE ABOUT AN HOUR AND WE CAME BACK, AND AS WE WERE WALKING ALONG 33rd I NOTICED A TREE DOWN, I SAID OH, IT’S IN FRONT OF OUR CAR. I HOPE WE CAN GET OUT. AND WHEN WE GOT THERE I REALIZED OH, MY GOD, IT’S ACTUALLY HIT THE CAR AND WE THE CAN’T GET OUT. AND IT WAS RIGHT ACROSS THE WHOLE STREET.>>YEAH, AND THAT IS JUST OF COURSE TELLING FOR THESE WIND EVENTS N TERMS OF HOW GUSTY IT’S BEEN ACROSS THE REGION, VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HAS PEAK GUSTS AT ABOUT 78 KILOMETRES AN HOUR. AND JUST ACROSS THE WATER WE’VE SEEN GUSTS OVER 90 KILOMETRES AN HOUR. SO IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING, OF COURSE, SEEING TREE LIMBS DOWN, THIS IS NOT SURPRISING. HOWEVER, UNFORTUNATE THAT MAY BE, TO FALL ON CARS. IT WASN’T JUST VANCOUVER SUFFERING THROUGH THE WIND. INTO THE INTERIOR, QUESNEL GUSTED UP TO 94, AND IN ADDITION TO THAT, YOU CAN TELL THE LIGHT IS GETTING A LITTLE LOWER, THE SUN IS SETTING AND THE TEMPERATURES ARE DROPPING. BUT THERE IS SOME GOOD NEWS. BY THE TIME THIS WIND DIES DOWN THROUGHOUT THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD INTO TOMORROW WE’LL BE LOOKING AT MUCH CALMER CONDITIONS, NOT ONLY FOR THIS WEEKEND, BUT WELL INTO THE WEEK AHEAD.

INSTALLATION EXPERTS ARE COMING IN FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER. THE COMPANY SAYS IT’S ADDED NEW SECURITY MEASURES TO THE OPERATION. R.C.M.P. INVESTIGATOR SAY THERE WAS INSIDE NATURAL OR MECHANICAL REASON WHY THE CABLE SNAPPED AT 4 A.M. AUGUST 10, SENDING ALMOST ALL 30 CABLE CARS CRASHING TO THE GROUND.>>A DECISION BY VANCOUVER CITY COUNCIL ON BANNING FIREWORKS HAS BEEN PUT OFF UNTIL NEXT MONTH. COUNCIL WAS EXPECTED TO VOTE ON A PROPOSED BAN LAST NIGHT AFTER IT HEARD FROM SEVERAL SPECIOUS FOR AND AGAINST. THE B.C. S.P.C.A.

FIREWORKS ARE ALREADY BANNED IN RICHMOND, SURREY, DELTA, COQUITLAM, AND THE CITY OF NORTH VANCOUVER.>>>A B.C. SUPREME COURT JUDGE HAS REJECTED THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST THE FOREIGN HOME BUYERS TAX. SUIT WAS LAUNCHED BY JING LEE WHO ARGUED IT DISCRIMINATED AGAINST CHINESE BUYERS. THE JUDGE RULED THE 20% TAX ON RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY PURCHASED BY FOREIGN NATIONALS IS FEAR.

BUT SO MANY PARENTS WERE ALSO LEFT IN THE DARK. ALLEGATIONS A TEENAGE BOY WAS GROPING AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD GIRL OVER MANY MONTHS ON A SCHOOL BUS. WE’VE HIDDEN HER MOM’S IDENTITY.>>YES, UNDER HER CLOTHES, HER UNDER GARMENTS, YES.>>WHEN YOU HEARD THAT, WHAT DID YOU THINK?>>I WAS NUMB, SHOCKED.

BRETT’S FORECAST IS NEXT.>>ALL RIGHT, BACK TO METEOROLOGIST BRETT SODERHOLM LIVE AT ENGLISH BAY TONIGHT, STILL WINDY OUT, BUT WHAT A GORGEOUS SUNSET THERE, BRETT.>>YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE TO SEE IT. I KNOW WE GAVE THAT LIVE LOOK BUT THIS WAS ONE TO START OFF A BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND. IT’S GUSTY AND THAT WILL SOMEBODY THE TREND OVERNIGHT BUT ALL THIS WILL PAY OFF BECAUSE IT’S CLEARING OUT ALL THE CLOUDS AND THIS WEEKEND AND BEYOND IS LOOKING BEAUTIFUL. I WANTED TO SHOW YOU YOU’RE CURRENT BE SUSTAINED WINDS, A LIVE LOOK. WE’RE AROUND 56 KILOMETRES AN HOUR HERE IN VANCOUVER AND THE GUSTS WOULD TRANSLATE TO CLOSER TO 80 KILOMETRES AN HOUR HERE IN VANCOUVER, LOOKING AT ABOUT 78. NOW, AS I MENTIONED, THROUGHOUT THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD THESE WINDS WILL BE CALMING DOWN BUT SLOWLY BUT SURELY. FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE EVENING AND GETTING INTO THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, IT WILL STILL BE BLUSTERY, BUT BY FIRST THING TOMORROW MORNING IT IS GOING TO FEEL LIKE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TYPE OF WEATHER AND IF YOU’VE GOT ANY PLANS THIS WEEKEND, ANYTHING INVOLVING OUTSIDE YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN LUCK. HERE IS A LOOK AT YOUR WEEKEND PLANNER. CLEAR SKIES THROUGHOUT THE OVERNIGHT TONIGHT, 5° OR SO IS OUR LOW BUT TOMORROW, A FEW CLOUDS ARE POSSIBLE, FIRST SOMETHING IN THE MORNING, WE’RE LOOKING AT MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES, THOUGH, GETTING INTO THE AFTERNOON. IT’S GOING TO BE A HIGH OF AROUND 12 DEGREES WHICH IS SEASONAL, COME SUNDAY, A VERY SIMILAR STORY, IT IS GOING TO BE VERY SUNNY, 11° BUT IT IS REALLY WORTH EMPHASIZING HOW CHILLY IT IS GOING TO BE ON THESE OVERNIGHTS. THIS IS ALL THANKS TO THIS RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE THAT WE’VE GOT STATIONED OVER THE PACIFIC RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN THINK OF THIS AS SOMETHING THAT’S A PROTECTIVE BARRIER SO IT’S PREVENTING ALL OF THAT RAIN THAT YOU’RE GOING TO SEE GO UP TOWARD ALASKA. THAT IS GOING TO JUST BE STUCK UP THERE AND NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH US HERE IN SOUTHERN B.C. AND THIS IS NOT JUST FOR THE WEEKEND, I KEEP EMPHASIZING. THIS WILL BE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS, EVEN GETTING INTO NEXT WEEK. THIS WOULD BE CALLED A VERY STABLE PATTERN AT THIS POINT IN TIME. WHAT THIS TRANSLATES TO OVERALL FOR OUR FIVE-DAY FORECAST, THIS IS JUST LOOKING PRETTY ASTOUNDING. WE HAVE NOTHING BUT SUN IN THE FORECAST FOR THE NEXT FIVE DAYS AND TEMPERATURES THERE, AS WELL THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOONS, ARE ONLY — THEY’RE GOING TO BE IN THE DOUBLE DIGITS SO THAT’S GREAT. BUT IT IS DOWN TOWARDS THE OVERNIGHT PERIODS, WE’RE GOING TO SEE LOWS ONCE AGAIN GOING BACK DOWN INTO THE LOW SINGLE DIGITS SO IF YOU HAVE ANY ADVENTURES PLANS FOR THE LATE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, BUNDLE UP. OTHERWISE ENJOY IT WHILE YOU CAN.>>Mike: WE WILL. THANKS, BRETT, LIVE AT ENGLISH BAY TONIGHT. A.>>FIRES ARE RIPPING THROUGH THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
