El Paso mass shooting (suspect Patrick Crusius admits targeting Mexicans). And remarkable experience at Dallas airport.

From Gillam, Manitoba, from where he has been reporting for Global News, we're joined by GN reporter Joe Scarpelli.

Gun violence and societal violence is a public health issue. So declares Dr. Gary Slutkin, epidemiologist, former hea of the World Health Organization's Intervention Development Unit and Professor of Epidemiology and Interventional Health at the University of Illinois/Chicago School of Public Health.

Dr. Slutkin is the founder of the international NGO Cure Violence launched in one of the most violent sections of Chicago and saw shootings reduced 67% in its first year. The Cure Violence program has been adopted internationally (including in Canada - Halifax and Alberta).

The federal Liberals have named their candidate to oppose now independent MP and former Liberal attorney general and Minister of Justice Jody Wilson-Raybould in the riding of Vancouver-Granville. The Liberals candidate will be Taleeb Noormohamed, a previous Liberal candidate in a different Vancouver riding (he lost). Noormohamed also worked in the Privy Council Office during the terms of Jean Chretien and Paul Martin as Prime Ministers. So what is likely to happen in Vancouver-Granville on October 21?

Manitobans will hear in days when they will vote for their next provincial government. A precursor to October 21 federally? Conservative Premier Brian Pallister one of the six conservative premiers challenging Trudeau on Bills C-48 & C-69.
