YOU BUY CASES WHAT YOU WANT FOR CASH, NO CREDIT CARDS, NOT A FRILL IN SIGHT. IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE A PLACE WHERE SMALL RETAILERS CAN COME TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A BIG ORGANIZATION’S BUYING POWER, ALL FOR THE COST OF A MEMBERSHIP.>>I CAN SAVE MONEY, I CAN SAVE COSTS AND IN TODAY’S MARKET YOU HAVE TO SAVE COSTS.>>Reporter: BUT COSTCO ALSO SELLS MEMBERSHIP TO ANY CONSUMER WHO FALLS INTO THE RIGHT CATEGORY AND THE CATEGORIES HAVE SO LOOSE THEY INCLUDE JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY. THAT’S WHAT THE WHOLESALE PUT INTO THE RETAIL GAME.>>WE’RE ALWAYS ASKED THE QUESTION, FROM WHOM DO WE TAKE OUR BUSINESS AND THE ANSWER IS WE DON’T KNOW BECAUSE IT’S SPREAD OVER SUCH A WIDE BASE BECAUSE WE CARRY SO MANY PRODUCTS.>>Reporter: MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO CAME TO THE FIRST DAY OF SHOPPING WERE JUST ORDINARY CONSUMERS LOOKING FOR A BARGAIN. THE STORE CLAIMS TO SELL 10 TO 30% LESS THAN OTHER DISCOUNT STORES BECAUSE OF ITS LOW OVERHEAD.>>IT’S A MORE EFFICIENT WAY OF MERCHANDISING AND MERCHANDISING STANDARDIZED PRODUCTS. SO YOU’RE GOING TO FIND THAT THEY’RE GOING TO CUT INTO COMPETITION OF THE BIG CHAIN STORES AND THE BIG MOVERS OF GOODS.>>Reporter: FROM THE UNITED STATES, THE SO-CALLED WHOLESALE CLUBS HAVE CUT SUBSTANTIALLY INTO RETAIL BUSINESSES. A MAJOR CONCERN IS THAT COULD ALSO HAPPEN IN CANADA.>>IF THEY’RE GOING TO SELL BELOW COST, MORE POWER TO THEM, I’LL DISCONTINUE THE ITEMS. BECAUSE THEN IT BECOMES PREDATORY PRICING. JOLT IN TWO WEEKS ANOTHER WILL OPEN IN EDMONTON. A COMPETITOR IS PLANNING SIMILAR STORES IN EASTERN CANADA. THE NEW STORES MIGHT TAKE A LESSON FROM THE OPENING DAY IN BRITISH COLUMBIA. AN OVERFLOW PARKING PROBLEM MADE IT A FIELD DAY FOR THE R.C.M.P. WHAT SOME PEOPLE SAVED INSIDE THE STORE THEY SPENT OUTSIDE ON PARKING TICKETS.>>Anita: THAT’S COSTCO JUST OFF WILLING CON.>>THIS IS YOUR COSTCO.>>MY COSTCO.>>MY COSTCO TOO.

THEY WERE MAKING NOISE, THEY KNEW THAT SOMETHING WASN’T RIGHT BECAUSE THE WAY THEY WERE BARKING WAS IN A MANNER THAT I HAD NEVER HEARD BEFORE.>>THANK GOD.>>THANK GOD IS RIGHT, YEAH.>>Reporter: THEN HER MEDICAL TRAINING KICKED IN.>>THANKFULLY I WAS ABLE TO OPEN HER AIRWAY AND START DOING C.P.R.>>Reporter: IT WAS ABOUT TEN MINUTES BEFORE AMANDA STARTED TO BREATHE. BY THEN THE DAMAGE TO HER BRAIN WAS ALREADY DONE.>>IT WAS A TOUGH THING TO REALIZE AND TO DISCOVER ABOUT MYSELF, THAT I WASN’T THE SAME PERSON THAT I WAS BEFORE.>>IN TRUTH, I DIDN’T KNOW THAT SHE WOULD EVER BE ANYTHING MORE THAN SHE WAS. EVEN THE NEUROLOGIST THAT WE WERE SEEING DIDN’T REALLY HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR US. IT WAS… IT WAS LIKE THIS WAS KIND OF UNCHARTED TERRITORY.>>Reporter: THEY TURNED TO A PRIVATE CLINIC AND STARTED PAYING FOR REHAB MEANT TO REWIRE AMANDA’S BRAIN.>>WE WENT FROM THAT, TO WHO YOU SEE TODAY IN FRONT OF YOU.>>Reporter: UNLIKE AMANDA, MOST OVERDOSE SURVIVORS DON’T GET SPECIALIZED TREATMENT. MOST DON’T RECOVER.>>YOU JUST THINK OF THE TSUNAMI OF HEALTH CARE COSTS AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE COSTS THAT ARE COMING OUR WAY AND IT’S QUITE DIFFICULT TO MEASURE, AND QUANTIFY.>>FOR LIANNA THE COST HAS BEEN HOW DIFFERENT HER LIFE TURNED OUT, STILL CARING FOR HER ADULT DAUGHTER.>>THERE ARE DAYS THAT, YOU KNOW — OR MOMENTS WHERE I GET VERY FRUSTRATED. THE BRAIN INJURY HAS LEFT HER WITH CHALLENGES WITH RESPECT MEMORY, PLANNING, JUDGMENT.

THE GUNMEN’S ACTIONS CALCULATED. THESE MEN OPENING FIRE ON FIVE TEENAGERS BEFORE FLEEING A TORONTO APARTMENT BUILDING. YOU A SHOOTING SO BRAZEN THE BRINGS CHIEF RUSHED TO THE SCENE CALLING IT A TARGETED ATTACK AND A MY CONCERN IS THERE ARE FLOOR PEOPLE RIGHT NOW WHO HAVE NO ISSUE SHOOTING A FIREARM IN THE CITY OF TORONTO.>>Reporter: A AUSTRIA STRUGGLING TO STOP RISING GUN CRIME.>>THIS MORNING, JUST A LITTLE OVER 12 HOURS LATER AND ONLY A FEW MINUTES AWAY FROM THE FIRST SHOOTING ANOTHER SHOOTING HAPPENED AT THIS APARTMENT COMPLEX BEHIND ME.>>IT’S TERRIFYING. THERE’S LITTLE KIDS AROUND HERE. THE PARK’S RIGHT BEHINDSOR US.>>THIS YEAR, 3998 SHOOTINGS, 33 PEOPLE KILLED AND MORE THAN 194 INJURED.>>I REMAIN DEEPLY TROUBLED BY IT BUT I’M HONEST IN SAYING I DON’T HAVE A MAGIC AND THEN I’M NOT AWARE OF ANYBODY ELSE WHO DOES.>>Reporter: AFTER A RASH OF SHOOTINGS THIS SUMMER, INCLUDING AT THE RAPTORS VICTORY PARADE THE THREE LEVELS OF THE GOVERNMENT LAUNCHED PROJECT COMMUNITY SPACE THE PROJECT WAS SUPPOSED TO SEND TODAY, BUT GIVEN THE VIOLENCE IT’S BEEN EXTENDED IS SIN GIANT WE WILL BE STAYING THE COURSE ON DOING THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO DO.

TO 10 MILLIGRAMS IN EACH PACKAGE OF TREATS LIKE THESE.>>I THINK 10 MILLIGRAMS, IF FOR RECREATIONAL MAY BE OKAY BUT FOR A LOT OF THE PEOPLE THAT TALK INTO CANNABIS GROUPS WHO HAVE VERY SERIOUS CONDITIONS, 10-MILLIGRAM ISN’T ENOUGH FOR THEM. FOR A PERSON WHO HAS TO TAKE MORE OF A HIGHER DOSAGE, THAT WOULD BE SO EXPENSIVE FOR THEM, THEY COULDN’T EVEN AFFORD IT. SO THEN ALL I WOULD DO IS I WOULD GET THIS, AND PUT IT INTO THE MAGIC BUTTER MACHINE.>>I WOULD POUR IT OUT OF THERE INTO HERE OVER A BOWL AND YOU WOULD LET IT STRAIN OUT.>>Reporter: IT’S TRICKY, EVEN FOR HER TO KNOW EXACTLY HOW MUCH T.H.C.

THAT’S WHY MOST OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN EVACUATED FROM THEIR HOMES HERE IN SONOMA COUNTY HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE GREEN LIGHT TO HEAD BACK HOME. ROY MASSON IS ONE OF THEM. HIS HOUSE SURVIVED THIS FIRE, BUT SOME OF HIS NEIGHBOURS WEREN’T SO LUCKY.>>THE HOUSE DIRECTLY BEHIND ME, IT’S 150 FEET, IS GONE. THE HOUSE TO THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH ARE STILL THERE.

WE’RE STILL EXPECTING 20 TO 30-MILE AN HOUR WINDS.>>Reporter: IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, THE HOPE IS THAT THE WINDS WILL DIE DOWN TONIGHT, BUT HERE IN THE NORTH THOSE HOPES WERE REALIZED AND PEOPLE CAN NOW TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO REBUILDING. AARON COLLINS, CBC NEWS, SONOMA COUNTIES, CALIFORNIA.>>LET’S HEAD BACK OUT TO DOUGLAS PARK IN EAST VANCOUVER, THAT NEIGHBOURHOOD, FOR EXAMPLE WE CAN SEE FOLKS BEHIND YOU, BRETT, DOING THEIR BEST TO GET ON TV.>>YOU GOT TRICK OR TREATERS, ANY FIREWORKS OR ANYTHING YET?>>YES, MIKE, HONESTLY, I’M VERY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THIS, AS YOU KNOW, RECENT TRANSPLANT TO VANCOUVER, I’VE NEVER ENJOYED THE MAGIC OF FIREWORKS THAT IS THE HALLOWEEN FIREWORKS, AND ALREADY I’VE STARTED HEARING A FEW OF THESE IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD, AND I CAN HEAR LITTLE CHEERS FROM CHILDREN WHEN THEY HEAR THEM GO OFF AND I’M SMILING TATTOO, IT’S REALLY FUN, ANY EXCUSE TO SET OFF FIREWORKS I THINK IS A GOOD ONE. IN TERMS OF WEATHER FOR THE RESTth NIGHT THIS IS LOOKING GREAT, PERFECT CONDITIONS FOR TRICK OR TREATING AS FAR AS IT GOES HERE, NO RAIN, CLEAR SKIES, AND, SURE, IT’S A LITTLE CLEAN-UP BUDGET OUT HERE, BUT I’M SEEING A LOT OF PEOPLE DRESSED UP AND BUNDLED UP APPROPRIATELY AND IT REALLY IS STARTING TO GET GOING. THERE’S A LOT OF FUN THINGS TO BE DOING OUT HERE AND I WANTED TO WALK YOU THROUGH WHAT WE CAN EXPECT OVER THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE. IN TERMS OF OUR TEMPERATURES FOR THE OVERNIGHT PERIOD, YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS, WE’RE GOING TO BE GOING DO YOU KNOW TO SOME OF OUR SINGLE DIGIT TEMPERATURES, , HAS BEEN COLD THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS AND THAT TREND IS CONTINUING. WE’RE LARGELY SEEING TEMPERATURES DOWN TO THE LOW SINGLE DIGITS. BUT BY THE AFTERNOON TOMORROW, FOR THE FIRST OF NOVEMBER, LET ME REMIND YOU, NORMALLY THIS IS A BIT OF A DISMAL MONTH, HAS THAT REPUTATION, BUT NOT TOMORROW, LOTS OF SUNSHINE. TEMPERATURES EVERYWHERE ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTH COAST GOING TO BE RIGHT BETWEEN 10 AND MAYBE EVEN 12° FOR SOME. IN TERMS OF WHAT WE CAN EXPECT AFTER THAT, IT’S HONESTLY GOING TO BE MUCH THE SAME. WE’RE DEALING WITH THIS BIG AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION AND THAT ISN’T REALLY GOING ANYWHERE ANYTIME SOON, AND IN FACT I MENTIONED A BIT EARLIER HOW THERE IS THE CHANCE FOR A FEW SHOWERS ON SUNDAY, WELL, NOW THAT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE IT’S GOING TO BE HAPPENING. INSTEAD WE’LL BE DEALING WITH SHOWERS POTENTIALLY ON MONDAY MORNING, BUT AFTER THAT, IT IS STILL LOOKING PRETTY NICE AND CLEAR AT THIS POINT IN TIME. NOW, IN TERMS OF WHAT WE CAN EXPECT AS WE GO INTO NEXT WEEK, AS I MENTIONED, NOVEMBER ALREADY A LITTLE BIT OF A TRICKY TIME OF THE YEAR, BUT REALLY, THERE IS NOTHING BUT SUNSHINE AND TEMPERATURES THAT ARE VERY CLOSE TO SEASONAL. THAT MEANS RIGHT NOW ANYWHERE PHONE 10 IN THE DAY, AND ABOUT 5° AT NIGHT. SO ALL IN ALL LOTS TO LOOK FORWARD TO AS WE GO INTO THE NEXT MONTH AND HOPEFULLY I CAN CATCH A FEW MORE FIREWORKS TONIGHT AND REALLY EMBRACE THE SPIRIT OF HALLOWEEN HERE. BACK TO YOU GUYS.>>I THINK YOU’LL SEE LOTS OF FIREWORKS TONIGHT, BRETT, WON’T WORRY. THANK YOU.>>WELL, TONIGHT SOME CHILDREN MIGHT BE CARRYING BLUE PUMPKINS. IT’S A WAY TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THEY HAVE AUTISM AND MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO SAY TRICK OR TREAT OR EVEN THANK YOU.>>AS WE HEAR IN THIS REPORT, WHILE SOME PARENT LIKE THIS IDEA, OTHERS FEEL IT’S LABEL THEIR CHILDREN.>>STROKE BY STROKE, 15-YEAR-OLD JACOB’S PUMPKIN IS TURNING BLUE. HE AND HIS MOM ARLENE REID DECIDED THIS YEAR HE’D CARRY A BLUE BUMPER PUMPKIN WHILE TRICK OR TREATING. THEY GOT THE IDEA FROM SOCIAL MEDIA AS A WAY TO REPRESENT KIDS WITH AUTISM WHO MAY BE NONVERBAL OR NOT COMFORTABLE IN SOCIAL SETTINGS.>>ALL CHILDREN SHOULD BE OUT TRICK OR TREATING, BECAUSE YOU’RE ONLY YOUNG ONCE. HE CAN’T SAY TRICK OR TREAT SOMETIMES, OR HE EFFICIENT TO SAY THANK YOU, AND I THINK THE BLUE PUMPKIN WILL HELP US TO IDENTIFY THAT, HEY, THERE’S SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT HIM.>>Reporter: REID SAID JACOB RECEIVED NEGATIVE COMMENTS LAST YEAR, WITH PEOPLE SAYING THINGS LIKE SERVICE EITHER TOO TALL OR WASN’T INTERACTING PROPERLY. COMMENTS WHICH DOPILY AFFECTED REID.>>THE JUDGMENT FROM OTHER PARENTS THAT DON’T UNDERSTAND IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO DEAL WITH. THIS MAY MAKE ME CRY. THE REJECTION THAT WE GET IN STORES, THE MISUNDERSTANDING WE GET WHEN WE GO TO STORES AND WE HAVE ISSUES. THE RUDE COMMENTS WE GET, IT’S HEARTBREAKING.>>Reporter: WHILE THE REIDS SEE THE VALUE OF AN IDENTIFIER, AUTISM CANADA HAS COME OUT AGAINST THE VIRAL MOVEMENT.>>FOR EXAMPLE, A SMALL TAG THAT SAYS, YOU KNOW, I’M NOT ABLE TO SPEAK TO YOU TONIGHT BUT HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND TRICK OR TREAT. WE BELIEVE THAT IS THE MORE DISCREET OPTION. WE BELIEVE IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO FEEL OBLIGED TO IDENTIFY ONESELF.>>HAVE YOU DECIDED WHAT KIND OF FACE YOU WANT TO PAINT ON YOUR PUMPKIN? MINISTER OF ? A HAPPY FACE?>>REID UNDERSTANDS THE OPPOSINS PARENTS SHOULD DECIDE CASE BY INDICATION. IN HER LOMB JACOB IS USING A BLUE PUMPKIN BUT HER YOUNGER SON RIDER WHO ALSO HAS AUTISM ISN’T.>>ANYTHING WE CAN DO TO HELP BRING MORE AWARENESS AND MORE AWARENESS BRINGS MORE UNDERSTANDING FOR THOSE THAT HAVE UNIQUE NEEDS.>>WHILE AUTISM CANADA DOESN’T SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT IT’S GLAD THE CAUSE IS BEING HIGHLIGHT. REID AND CLEARY FEEL THERE ARE BIGGER ISSUES AT HAND LIKE UNDER FUNDING AND LACK OF RESOURCES BUT FOR ONE NIGHT, FLEECE AT LEAST ONE TEENAGER WILL FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE ON HALLOWEEN.

THE SALISH SEA IS NOT A CIRCUS. ORCAS ARE NOT FOR ENTERTAINMENT. ORCAS ARE NOT CIRCUS ANIMALS. I ASK HOW IS THE WHALE WATCHING INDUSTRY COMPENSATING THESE ANIMAL PERFORMERS FOR THE HALF MILLION TOURISTS THEY PUT THEM ON DISPLAY FOR EVERY YEAR? WHAT MEANINGFUL ACTIONS DO THEY TAKE TO ENSURE THAT THE HABITAT FOR FOOD SOURCES FOR THESE ANIMALS ARE RESTORED SO THAT THE VERY RESOURCE WHICH THEY GO AND EXPLOIT CONTINUES TO BE THERE? WOULD IT BE OKAY TO FOLLOW BEHIND A FAMILY OF BEARS? LET’S JUST SAY THERE WAS SIX S.U.V.S AND THEY WERE ALL ELECTRIC, AND THEY HAD 100 PEOPLE ON BOARD, TOTAL. WOULD IT STILL BE OKAY TO FOLLOW BEHIND THAT FAMILY OF BEARS JUST AS LONG AS YOU WERE 200 METRES BACK, AS IT HEADED OFF INTO THE WOODS AND TRIED TO GET AWAY, AND WHY HAS THAT INDUSTRY BEEN ALLOWED TO EXIST ON OUR COAST? THERE ARE SO FEW SALISH ORCAS THAT I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THAT IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO BASE AN INTERNATIONAL TOURISM INDUSTRY ON A VERY SMALL GROUP OF THREATENED ANIMALS.>>THAT WAS A LIVE SHOT FROM MONTREAL TONIGHT, WHERE A BIG STORM HAS HIT THE CITY SO HARD IT’S CAUSED HALLOWEEN TO BE — CUP — POSTPONED.

THEY’RE FAIRLY HARDY FOLK IN MONTREAL BUT WIND OVERNIGHT AND INTO TOMORROW, THEY COULD DEAL WITH GUSTS UPWARDS OF 90 KILOMETRES AN HOUR. THE TRICKY THING IS THEY POSTPONED HALLOWEEN UNTIL FRIDAY EVENING BUT THAT’S GOING TO COINCIDE WITH SOME OF THE STRONGEST WINDS THAT THE CITY HAS SEEN. WE CAN BE SEEING GUSTS LOCALLY UP TO 90 KILOMETRES AN HOUR. THAT SAID, THEY MAY ALSO BE IN NEED OF A BOAT, PERHAPS, AND I’M IN FRONT OF A PIRATE HIP RIGHT NOW HERE IN VANCOUVER.
