10:13 pm
coven mandate. our correspondent peter all varies at the scene for us. just over my shoulder, you can see the remnants of the comments that were here in the center of the canadian capital. off to all, almost all of those protest is be occupying. the city has now been moved along or of left of their own volition over my left shoulder. maybe see the flushing lights of a police. ready cruiser there, that's where they've blocked everything off the red zone. they're calling it now, they've put up a fence around the parliament building to allow employees to go about that business on a harassed they say is the emergency act has been implemented. they moved out the people over the last few days in scenes that have been so of the last full full but today dns can certainly turn pretty ugly and times i oh my goodness. good, good, good,
10:14 pm
good, good. you did the . 7 we made some very important progress in safely removing this unlawful protest from our streets. we've backed up those warnings with a deliberate and methodical operation using lawful and safe tactics. and that's why implore all the protesters who remain there, go home. this occupation is now over. we will continue with our mission until it is complete. as the authorities moved people out of this particular part of the canadian capital protest, this spoke to the media and said that they were sure that this protest of that had been was over for now. but that they felt something had changed in canada.
10:15 pm
mandate people out there. we need to change your mind. we need to hold people accountable doctors for the room kitchen for selling our freedom to measure their gender. i've been here 20 days and they're being very heavy here today. they're pushing back. this is a dream. this is not candidate guys. this is a dictatorship nose running our country. get here, don't be afraid to stand with these people. the protest movement started out with anger from that truck, a group's over a vaccine mandate that was required for travel across the border between canada and the united states. and then snowball founding in upsets over covert 19 mandates. and restrictions and measures in general, added to the, to the time visceral anger toward prime minister just in true though,
10:16 pm
that we've seen born out here on the streets of the canadian capital. we've seen an awful lot of criticism old mister trudeau from sections of canadian society, including an open letter from christian ministers. there is no national emergency and to invoke one to crush peaceful political descent. is it to tell a terry inactive repression, displaying weakness not strength. these tyrannical actions are exposing this government in people to the judgment of god. and we are deeply concerned that you do not appreciate the significance of god's wrath upon a rebellious and wallace nation. the prime minister himself is sticking to his guns though he said that this wasn't a legal protest that it. ready was an illegal blockade of the city and that is why he. ready if you d emergencies that he put that into place, which among other things gave police the extra power is they need to block off areas like that over my left shoulder. to remove those protesters from the street to boston. the blockade and occupations are illegal. there are threat to our
10:17 pm
economy relationship with trading partners. there are threat to supply chains and the availability of essential goods, like food and medicine. they're a threat to public safety. but there is a lot of political capital to be made here as well. mister, true, those opponents have not missed an opportunity to stick the knife in. let's remind the prime minister this is canada. this is not a dictator. gasoline on embers, things are de escalating as we speak. so why is the prime minister using this hammer on canadians? isn't it true, he's doing it just to save his own political skin. he has politicized his pandemic and divided canadians at a time when we should be working together. when we should be supporting one another . his lack of leadership has divided,
10:18 pm
stigmatized and traumatized canadians. full graces, massage, a fringe, who quote, take up space and he said, shouldn't be tolerated. isn't this really about the prime minister, taking a sledgehammer to canadians that he thinks are unacceptable. parliament will continue. that is based on the emergencies act with a vote expected on monday evening during not they could choose to make amendment to the current situation or, and the state of emergency entirely. certainly though they say a few isn't going to go away anytime soon. even if the protesters have left the streets over to a piece or all of a fee in the canadian capital, a video posted online shows many of the protesters kneeling in prayer, in an a parents show of peace and unity. it's just one of the many attempts to bring government attention to covet, mandates that many believe have stripped people of their funded mental freedom. as peter mentioned earlier,
10:19 pm
christian pastors have also joined protesters and condemning authorities for their unprecedented invoking of the emergency powers act. they've signed an open letter to the government, stating such, quote, tyrannical actions should not be used on peaceful citizens pasture. henry held rent told us that to those forceful crushing of the protest has not only alarm the canadians but the entire world as well. i think the latter hopes to achieve afford the prime minister to realize that there is a large, large amount of people out there, not a small french minority that, that sees that this is very, very dangerous. the path he's on. well, the way he is forcefully crushing this freedom movement is very, very alarming to many canadians to most canadians and also to the rest of the world . what we could say, this is the end of the beginning. this doesn't end here. even though he has been
10:20 pm
brutally of tried to end this, this peaceful conway that this, this is not, this is not what, what he, i mean he's, he's trying to show his power by this. but this is not work and well that have it for me and the news this hour. but before we wrap it up, we're going to send you out to one of the coldest, inhabited places on earth in his 4th and final report this week, constantino rose coff learns the ways of reindeer herders and rushes far east and goes for an icy dip in minus 50 degrees celsius, but not before experiencing even colder clients. take a look. well, this is one of the main attraction, sorry for visitors for tours. here estella or our valerie monument that marks the lowest temperature that has ever been recorded in this life. mine is 71.2. ruth health. yes, there is an ongoing debate over which village is actually the coldest place i north, whether it's or mac or where we're now or tom toward where we came from. but the
10:21 pm
truth is it doesn't matter because the whole area, the whole region, which is also called i macro, by the way, has something special about his geography that makes it so frigid. i really need to understand this. my medical lies in a valley surrounded by mountains, and since there is no ocean nearby to moderate the extreme temperatures, the cold is concentrated here like in no other place. oh, it doesn't matter how much you measure this, but the code is point is always in the wrong. so in the hollow valleys, this is where the most intense code is accumulated. for some reason, you're talking about cold as if it's him substance like a matter that can move around, it accumulates it. here it can be 4050 degrees, or a certain point, it will be minus 65. the head of a local weather station shows us around what is probably one of the most severe
10:22 pm
places to observe climate. what is the temperature now? we're minus $46.00 degrees. well, it could have been worse. if you stay, you'll see it's going to be minus $50.00 to $52.00 degrees celsius, minus 60 degrees fahrenheit. he says that it's more accurate to call on that con the coldest, permanently inhabited place on earth. it may get even colder at the south all, but no one lived there except for scientists to come and go in oil nickel and people have adapted to live in the extreme environment all year around. like alexander, our tenure of who didn't even notice the white specks of frost on his face. as we were recording our of you out in the freezing cold. your face has turned white is everything fine. it's fine, it'll go away and turn red, just rubbish. and that's it. i guess you have to be born here to treat frostbite as if it's nothing from a young age. children here are taught that even if it's freezing outside, it doesn't mean you don't go to school. here, kid,
10:23 pm
stay home only if the temperature drops below minus $52.00 degrees celsius or $61.00 fahrenheit, which are all children are present now or is someone at home? meteorologists reported that it's minus 50 celsius. so all the kids are studying minus 50 lovely winter day. everyone goes to school. yes, this is usual weather and temperatures for us. like children all over the world, these kids like to play video games and that's what most of them were doing during a school break. when we arrived, this was very much just are you playing online with someone? yes, he should pay to. leslie, do you have why fi here? we have 14 yet. the schools administration also pays a lot of attention to the kids physical development we found familiar faces and the gym. alexander had good a sub in his guest house, also worked as a coach at the school. today. his students are practicing local. you could sports
10:24 pm
these are the games that locals have been playing here for centuries. now, they're also part of the schools, physical education program. much upon how boys come from rural areas and they're strong. they work on farms help their parents earn money for themselves in the summer by gathering hay and shopping, firewood they will survive in extreme situations because they are hardened. they know how to light a fire, how to survive, got value when you grow autumn, with whom do you want to be? yeah. yeah, i want to join the special forces. special force. yes. but we want to fight. yes. even to work. alexander, who is 53 years old, is eager to show that he is in to fitness and stay in shape. no, he doesn't have a 6 back and he doesn't work out using sophisticated fitness equipment. but his physical abilities can catch many by surprise. for one, he went, i swimming in a river on a day when the temperature outside was as low as minus 49 degrees celsius worth 56
10:25 pm
fahrenheit. if he was good, helpful, they told me i shouldn't do this. and then i thought, i mean, wanted to call this places on his planet hand, if i pass off on this opportunity and he may never come along again. so with that being said, i'm going with that are dove into the water and did 3 complete pushups as if it was no big deal. i, on the other hand, was in the water for life in a 2nd without even getting my head way. and then sprinted back to the car as fast as i go with. no words can be put to this and so on,
10:26 pm
on top of the world. all that might seem over the town. but here's the thing about doing that on those who live here. and those who come here old tend to push themselves to the limit in one way or another. the reindeer herders to learn to survive in the phrasing called without the help of modern technology, really reindeers is what these people have been doing for centuries, have not thousands of years. and these animals still remain their main source of food and medicine. they still use are really high to make huts. and for the most part, these herders lived just like their ancestors did. they sleep on rained her eyes and they melt eyes for drinking water. and if they need food, they'd taken a knife voucher, an animal and cook it on fire. both. this is a hide from a recently killed reindeer. i can see
10:27 pm
a blood stains on the edge. a sa herders are gave this hide to their dock so they can have a warm place to sleep. these people can survive without civilization, but that doesn't mean they reject it. they use diesel generators for electricity. they also recently set up a why fi router in their hut to catch up on the latest news. there are some small things that these herders don't quite understand about the modern world was good to . she was also to tell me as a man of civilization, but why do they say this can be thrown out in the forest? but i don't quite get it put my back when you my aunt, when or stand there are harmful elements in them and therefore they need to be disposed properly. you know it. okay, i understand american is definitely among the world's most difficult places to live . it's cold, it's remote and you have to put an extra effort to get something other people might take for granted. and yet, there are many men and women who have adapted to this harsh environments so well
10:28 pm
they can imagine living anywhere else. what might be a tourist attraction for someone from the outside? is these people's everyday life? and even if locals don't toss hot water in the air and don't use frozen food for hammers. that doesn't mean they don't enjoy living in the coldest place on earth. they just take pleasure in something the rest of us can't. i mc one at the farm, yukon is the coldest inhabitant place in the world. we live here and we have toilets outside. everything is outside despite this cold. but we've got used to it looked at her you see some live intense, some live in brick house and very good. some live in a cave. we're all stronger together. this is russian to see how many of us live here with the national. we love boy mccolan. this is our home lamps. we would never change for anything, not for moscow, england or europe. this is russia is the best place in the world.
10:29 pm
ah, ah ah, ah, ah, ah. ah
10:30 pm
. with mm hm. welcome to worlds apart. it's hard to find a more discouraged and tempting subject for a learning conversation than the existence of the transcendent, like to forbidden fraud. it calls an oz from the great works of art and the most mundane occurrences of our daily life. but to the rational mind, the thought of a higher power is akin to the original sin which comes with the donation of being
10:31 pm
expelled from the eden of scientific method.
