Air Canada fine, B.C. embraces reopening, Toxic makeup | The National for June 15, 2021

The U.S. wants to fine Air Canada $25 million for slow customer refunds. B.C. relaxes another round of COVID-19 restrictions. Plus, the toxic ingredients hiding inside popular makeup products.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this story included an interview with two people claiming they were eyewitnesses to the incident that led to the death of RCMP Const. Shelby Patton.

CBC interviewed the couple at the site of the collision in Wolseley, Sask. They told CBC News details of the events they claimed to witness from their apartment overlooking the scene. The couple expressed shock and emotion at what they say they had witnessed.

At that time, we had no reason to doubt their story.

The RCMP contacted CBC after investigators interviewed the couple, indicating their information showed that the couple’s story was false. CBC News contacted the two people, who then admitted they had fabricated the story they told to our reporter.

We have removed their account from this broadcast.
