7:22 am
mixed emotions. iraq is under canadian law, designated as a state sponsor of terrorism. the evidence we gathered proved that this was an intentional terrorist and we carry a superior court of justice accepted and made a ruling confirming that it was an intentional classic terrorism. yesterday's ruling provided us the families for $65.00 families asking for representing 6. this is provided them with a compensation decision and the amount of $107000000.00 canadian dollars that included a $100000000.00, punitive or punishment award, significant and unprecedented canadian jurisprudence. our reaction was miss. i was certainly quite sad. my clients were sad, nothing to bring back their families, and this is no money case, per se,
7:23 am
but they were also delighted that for the 1st time in this case, justice has been done. busy in this private law claim by a judge or b on terry a superior court of justice. so mixed emotions are substantial rainy and assets in canada and worldwide. and. busy we have embark upon a process of collection. otherwise no one has execution. we're going after all radiant assets worldwide, including in canada that we can get our hands on. canada will pay just over $30000000000.00 in compensation to members of the indigenous community who were taken from the families when they were children and put into state curb. the money will go to the families affected in the last 3 decades casual. so hope to reform the child welfare system has been anger over the poor quality of care given to indigenous children, jody vance reports for vancouver. it is monumental on the pathway to reform and
7:24 am
certainly the history here is epic for 1st nations people and for the federal government in canada. almost 15 years in the making is this agreement in principle . and if it does come together will be the largest of its kind in canadian history, $40000000000.00 and compensation for mist wrongdoings and discriminatory practices within a child welfare system. with 1st nations, children, children taken from their family homes, from reserves, and in spaces in places around the yukon. and now compensation will be given 20000000000 for potentially hundreds of thousands of 1st nations, families and children who are removed from their homes. who did not get access to services that delayed in receiving necessary and, and human rights services. as mentioned, that human rights tribunal was almost 15 years ago that identified the
7:25 am
discriminatory practices. and that compensation was required. another 20000000000 over the next 5 years put in place to reform that very system. now you may or may not remember back in september as recently as september, the canadian federal government was fighting in court against compensation. the government saying that they were looking for the right number catholics towns president says that he's imposing price controls on gas and diesel for the next 6 months or day after tear gas and stun grenades. we used against protesters in massey, a statement from president caffeine. german to kind of said that he's accepted the government's resignation, heels declared a state of emergency and 2 regions and imposed on over night curfew demonstrations of sprint to the largest city of l. marty after beginning 2 days ago in the town of john, i was then when fuel costs 1st spike, according to local media, several protest hasn't been detained. a mobile internet has been jammed. bruce
7:26 am
penny is a correspondent for radio free europe and says that the process could have wider regional implications. i think this one thought everyone was surprised that it's spread. so it did, you know, as these protest tend to do, they started over at broken our regions, as we mentioned, the dublin and the price of liquefied petroleum gas. but it quickly took a political angle where people started calling for free elections, of local officials, started calling for the altar about top officials in the government. so the, you know, they're, they're working to get this kind of under control as much as they can with going to hurt the reputation because the government, but, you know, cause expand is always been fairly stable. they've had moments in the last 10 years where there was some problems with the order was fairly quickly restored. so the fact that it is a stable country in central asia, which has had some problems, some of the countries in the past. you know, there's going to be ripple effects that are going to come from this. and i imagine
7:27 am
all the governments in central asia, of course there are 607000 kilometer border with russia. so all the governments in those countries are going to be watching real closely. what happens if for no other reason than to make sure they don't make the kind of mistakes that the cause of authority to did by allowing the situation to get us out of. and as it did today, a palestinian prisoner is ending a hunger strike out more than $140.00 days after a deal to release him from his ready detention hisham of how ashes administrative detention was met with waves of protests and the occupied westbank. abraham reports for all mala, breaking his fastest at 141 day hunger strike. he sham of her, where she expects to be a free man by the end of february, after these really military agreed not to renew his detention. the deal was reached after talks between palestinian and israeli officials goes on factions with threatening an escalation if he died about this extended battle in which every
7:28 am
palestinian mobilized and used all his tools was a successful, strong and influential battle through them. and through our national unity and cohesion around the prisoners and their issues, we affirm that we can achieve victory. the 40 year old father of 5 was 1st arrested, an october of 2020 and was subject to israel's policy up administrative detention, which allows palestinians to be held indefinitely without charges palestinian human rights. organizations say israel has issued 1600 administrative detention orders last year. there has been an increasing the youth of hunger strike as a way to combat his hall as the 60 palestinian prisoners have underwent hunger strike in the year 2021. the majority of them were facing administrative detention and all have been able to deal to set the deadline to their administrative
7:29 am
detention palestinians, organized social media campaigns to highlight the prisoners issue. some started hunger strikes and solidarity, and others took to the streets in the occupied west bank, the gaza strip, and up and on. they want an end to these really detentions. we think that's obviously the fact is being resolved is a good thing. we have, as a matter of principle always i spoke it's been very clear in st. had people who are detained or should be tried charge and tried in accordance with due process or released. and that has been our, our position on administrative detention. the palestinian prisoners club says $500.00 prisoners, an israeli jails, including 4 miners, are held without charges. some of them have been imprisoned for 15 years ago as expected to return to his family next month. but the practice of detention without charges is far from over. there by him. eligible eda the occupied
7:30 am
westbank. there's plenty more video along with the latest news analysis and sport of the website. just point your browser that's al jazeera dot com. ah. it is good to have you with us. hello adrian, sitting here in. so how the headlines and al jazeera, the u. s. a. set a new global record with more than a 1000000 new coven 19 cases registered in a day. the huge jump is to you in part to delays and reporting over the new year weekend. but the u. s. has seen an average of 480000 daily infections over the past week. so 35000000 people not vaccinated. and let me be absolutely clear we have in hand all.
