In our top story: Canada is warning those who are hoping for a March Break abroad that now is not the time. The federal government announced Friday it is tightening travel measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and its highly infectious variants. Canada’s main airlines are suspending service to popular sun destinations, such as Mexico and the Caribbean, starting Sunday until April 30. Starting Feb. 3, international flights will also only be able to land in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal and in the coming weeks, there will be a mandatory COVID-19 test at the airport for people returning to Canada, in addition to the test required before the flight. There are still major questions about how the changes will roll out, but as David Akin reports, what is clear is the hefty price you’ll pay if you insist on taking that trip.

There is some good news in the battle against COVID-19. Health Canada is reviewing the clinical trial data for the AstraZeneca vaccine and a decision could be coming within days. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is also on the horizon and the company says it is more than 60 per cent effective and only requires one dose. The timing is so important because of the shortage of these vital vaccines. Crystal Goomansingh reports.

As the pandemic drags on, more Canadians are struggling to pay the rent. Advocates say we’ve long had an affordable housing problem in Canada. As Farah Nasser explains, on top of this health emergency, there’s an unprecedented eviction crisis as well.

In the U.S., federal officials are reviewing GameStop’s unbelievable stock surge — which saw it soar 8,000 per cent in the past six months — and the attempts to stop it. It all began when Hedge Funds started shorting STOCK in the struggling video game company, betting its stock price would drop and they’d make money. But online investors began gobbling it up and making millions. Jennifer Johnson reports.

Auto makers have long been told the only way to drive the industry forward is to reverse emissions and phase out fossil fuels for more environmentally sustainable options. General Motors is aiming to go all-electric, with the company pledging to end production of gas and diesel-powered cars and trucks by 2035. They plan to turn completely carbon-neutral by 2040. As Eric Sorensen reports, the shift is impacting Canada’s auto-manufacturing industry.
