Tamil migrant ship, Iran stoning and Pink Floyd cover
Ten boats have left the B.C. coast, headed towards a Thai cargo ship believed to be carrying between 200 and 500 Tamil migrants from Sri Lanka. But, what should Canada do once they arrive? Our top story tonight.
Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, better known as the Iranian woman sentenced to death for stoning, has appeared on state television to "confess" her crime. This woman's story has captured the world's attention. Tonight we check in with an activist trying to stop her execution.
"Hey, Ayatollah, leave those kids alone!" That's a cover of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" by Iranian-Canadian band Blurred Vision. Their protest song has recently gone viral, and has been endorsed by Roger Waters himself. "I think it's great that these guys are using the song to protest against the repressive and brutal regime in Iran. South African kids did during apartheid and Palestinian kids do to protest the Israeli occupation of their land. I am proud to be a small part of this resistance." Blurred Vision is on the show.
Plus, our week long series following Natalia Ritchie's lung transplant continues. Tonight, she's discharged from the hospital. It's a story of love, hope, and perseverance.
