border this week. at the way mother may have one is on even the african people expected that after the withdrawal of american forces in other countries, there would be no excuse for the tele bond to continue the war. and they should cease and resolve their problem through negotiations and peace. but unfortunately, you see that instead they started an undeclared war and intensified it in the skies, the african air force is hitting back carrying out air strikes on taliban gatherings. it may not have the latest equipment, but the afghan air force is trained and capable. its attack, helicopters and planes are equipped with laser guided bombs. you know, if we compared our self with the american, is the big difference. the new afghan commander, bathroom air base knows they may not have as much firepower, but he says they're ready for what comes. everybody knows we are living in a country for the kid for to continue. so in this case, some sometime we go for some sometime week we fit back. this is war in

3:06 am
on behalf of president joe biden. we're all insisting that he had taken a hard look at how these issues were with possibly play out if us forces loved afghan a scam. and it was ultimately the president's judgment that keeping us forces in significant numbers inside that country would not do the role of really stabilizing it or making it possible for the afghan people to actually engage in self rule. and so he made that determination. and that it's what the us is going to stick with ross and jordan with all the latest for us from the u. s. capital, thank you so much home. meanwhile, the afghan government says the territory that's been captured by the taliban will soon be taken and accounted offensive. and national security adviser says hundreds of security personnel who fled to jacob done will be brought back to rejoin the 5. the taliban have since taken control of another 36 districts or 10 percent of the country just in the past 6 days. they've doubled the number of districts they

3:18 am
a fuel crisis just there is a lack of medicine after people fill up their cars with gas, they go to pharmacy to start looking for medicines, which more often than not, they do not find. and then there's a hyper inflation, the price of food. it has more than tripled in recent months, yet the minimum wage remains the same. and the majority of the lebanese people turn in the local currency, which is now worth less than $50.00. and the reason is if i am going to die destroying god without throwing up, we have money, we're gonna buy anything. we have money, really. we have money that's going to buy anything that's not there. those are those people who fill earnest salaries, but unemployment is on the rise. it's now 35 percent and research institute say it is going to increase to 40 percent of the this is
3:19 am
a country which is starving for dollars for hard currency. the central bank mandatory research is drying out and the central bank was giving importers dollars in order to buy fuel medicine at an affordable price to subsidize these goods. and like i mentioned, it's running out fuel prices have increased by, by 50, by 50 percent. so has the price of bread, so people are struggling and you just heard. a that man, there are those who have money, who are able to buy something, just can't because they cannot find it in the country which imports to almost everything that it needs. now moving on and canada is getting its 1st indigenous governor general diplomat. mary simon isn't in us from the province of quebec. she says her appointment is a sign of progress towards the more inclusive society. there is a fresh spotlight on historical abuses against indigenous people in canada. after the discovery of more than a 1000 unmarked graves of children who were forced into residential schools,
3:20 am
the governor general represents persons reigning monarch in canada. i can confidently say that my appointment is a historic and if inspirational, moment for canada, and an important step forward on the long path towards reconciliation. well, let's bring in, bring, let's, he joins us from vancouver, british columbia. he's a lawyer and also a former counsel for the national inquiry into missing and mounted indigenous women and girls breeding. thank you for your time today as we were hearing that from mary simon. she says, this is progress. is this symbolism or real attempt to change? do you think well, when i listen to her, say an important step forward on the long path towards reconciliation to me and to many ambitious people. this signal that we should expect from her the same slow
3:21 am
pace of successive canadian governments over many decades, including the current government. to me, it's very troubling in this context, but you know, a country that is being accused of genocide by its own federal commission. the national inquiry intimacy, murdered, business, women and girls is still signaling to us that it's going to take a slow measured approach. i do not believe that genocide is a crime that should be tolerated for any amount of time. let alone belong path towards reconciliation alluded to by the new governor general. i think that it deserves immediate attention. breen, i do want to ask you though, because change is sometimes iterative. and even if this is a symbolic, this is surely a step that speaks to a broad will be it flow as you're saying shift and kind of the thinking about it. so an identity well, it's a, it's a, it's a, it's
3:22 am
a symbolic change and you're right, more people are becoming aware. the canada has a history of genocide. but many are still refusing to acknowledge that it has a current and ongoing genocide against indigenous peoples. and that was the allegation of the national inquiries, not just that it's historical, but that is current and ongoing. and i also alleged that the canadian government has enshrined apartheid in the constitution act of 867. and as long as apartheid is at the core of this country's laws, we will not feel real change. we have really need the international criminal court to come in and investigate the ongoing genocide and apartheid in canada. well, there are clearly some questions, ongoing questions around accountability, but just turning back to miss simon's role. i mean,
3:23 am
i understand it's primarily ceremonial, but she has previously taken some fairly strong storm. says on big political issues like arctic drilling, for instance. now, given the conversation that you and i and people around the world, having around to digital issues in canada, at the moment, do you think because she's taking this, this row, she could have some real political influence here. well, as someone who's also formerly worked in indigenous governance, i know that indigenous governments like the i c k of which she was president and the m n. c. and the fan are heavily dependent on the canadian government for their funding. and canada uses that dependency to coerce indigenous governments to do work is canada sees fit. so it's my belief that the selection of ms simon by prime minister trudeau is likely because he's comfortable with her past track record that that she will rock the boat very much and that she will
3:24 am
tow the line and protect the government of canada. we need something more courageous than that right now. brain. i understand miss simon herself has come under fire for not speaking french, but i understand that also because she wasn't actually allowed to learn it at the day school she attended not dissimilar to some of the residential schools that we've been talking about. i know you've raised these questions of accountability, but given that she now has a higher profile, is that likely to create more of a conversation around that at least it may and it may not you know, the language is, has been denied a lot of indigenous people including people, but haven't attended at residential schools, but generations ago like my grandparents they didn't teach my
3:25 am
father are indigenous languages because they were afraid. but doing so would cause him to be taken to residential schools. so they, they undertook to keep that from him to protect him from being physically taken. a lot of horrible things has been done by the government of canada beyond residential schools. and we need to look at residential schools. but we also need to look at the, the current problems with child apprehensions by governments in canada. indigenous children currently represent roughly how the children in foster care and that is specifically anomalous. given that the population is 5 to 7 percent of canada, kelly and incredibly, incredibly long way to go brand new. let's there a form, a council for the national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls in canada. thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us on their brain.
