Your morning briefing from CTVNews.ca
July 29, 2022


The Pope's 'pilgrimage of penance' to Canada has been met with hope and skepticism, the federal government has unveiled details of its firearms buyback program, and a closer look at where some Canadian workers are going amid labour shortages.

Here's what you need to know to start your day.

Papal visit

Indigenous people are expressing a mixture of hope and skepticism after Pope Francis' Quebec City-area mass, with some saying they want to hear about the concrete steps that will follow the pontiff's historic apologies for residential schools. 

Firearms buyback

The federal government has unveiled how much it is planning to pay gun owners for the banned firearms they turn over as part of the mandatory buyback program. Here's a look at the proposed pricing scheme.

Auto-theft bust

More than 200 stolen cars have been recovered and 28 people have been charged in connection with the dismantling of three auto-theft based criminal organizations in Ontario and Saskatchewan, police say. 

Deadly climb

An Australian and a Canadian mountain climber died last week in northern Pakistan while attempting to scale K2, the world's second-highest mountain. 

Labour shortage

Restaurants, airlines, schools and nursing homes are at the sharp end of a labour crunch, more than two years after the COVID-19 pandemic hit Canada. So if workers are leaving their jobs, where are they going?
