Show Notes

Himpe, Don & Sam Maciag - July 18, 2014

HOUR ONE

 

We bring you the latest from the Ukraine after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was reportedly shot down by rebel soldiers. Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed Ukraine for the downing, saying it was responsible for the unrest in its Russian-speaking eastern regions — but did not accuse Ukraine of shooting the plane.

The suggestion has been that MH17 was shot down by either Russian air defense systems along the Ukraine border, or by pro-Russian separatists with a radar-guided surface to air missile system. Jalopnick - one of the many Gawker news blog sites says it's not unreasonable considering at least three Ukrainian military aircraft have been shot down out of the sky in the last few days. Could Someone Have Mistaken This For A Military Aircraft?

What we know about the Malaysian Airlines flight 17 was shot down yesterday over eastern Ukraine. All 298 people on board are dead - including one Canadian. Ukrainian intelligence has released an audiotape they say proves separatists are behind the strike. Pro-Russian separatists, Ukraine or Russia - no one is taking responsibility for shooting the flight down. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko calls the loss of the plane over Donetsk a "terrorist action". US president Barack Obama has offered support to Ukraine to help with the investigation. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has extended his condolences to the families of the victims.

Thunderstorm watches and warnings swept across parts of southern and central Alberta on Thursday. Calgary was under a thunderstorm watch for most of the afternoon. North of the city, Environment Canada had issued tornado watches for Airdrie, Cochrane, Olds, Sundre, Red Deer, Drumheller, Hanna and Coronation, at one point. One caller tells 660News, a vehicle on the QE- II was hit with hail pretty hard, which took out the back window.

HOUR TWO

We bring you the latest from the Ukraine after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was reportedly shot down by rebel soldiers. CNN now confirming those reports early this morning confirm it was pro-Russian separatist. The reason behind is still unknown, but some are now reporting this could all just be a horrible mistake.

Less than a day after he appeared in court for stealing a school bus, a Parker, Fla. 12-year-old allegedly stole a different bus and took it for a two-hour joyride. Back in June, Michael Propst was stopped after he drove a Bay School District bus 14 miles to Walmart and employees noticed he was having trouble parking it. Then they noticed he was 12.

Carlmen Low Car Men is a Malaysian Airline flight attendant who had a number of friends working flight 17. She even dropped one of them off at the airport when the jet first went to Amsterdam. She talked with Anderson Cooper and we play the audio for you this morning.
