HOUR ONE

How did Freddy Gray die? We have conflicting stories from the Police Commissioner in Baltimore – who claims Gray was attempting to hurt himself in the police van, trashing himself about. That does not jive with the statement given by the other prisoner, who was also being transported in that same vehicle; he says something much darker is at works in Baltimore. A new “Global News Ipsos" poll out says that the NDP are in the lead heading in to next Tuesday's provincial election in Alberta. However, only 52 per cent of those who chose a party to support say they’re “dead set” in their vote, while 48 per cent said they “still haven’t fully made up their mind” and could switch to another party.

That does not jive with the statement given by the other prisoner, who was also being transported in that same vehicle; he says something much darker is at works in Baltimore.
