Students in Alberta are getting an extended winter break, but the province says it won’t bring in any more restrictions heading into the new year. Neither is Saskatchewan, where students are going back to class next week as planned. As Heather Yourex-West explains, the prairie provinces are hoping a lighter touch will get them through this Omicron wave.
Wildfires in Colorado have sparked a tragic end to the year, with tens of thousands of people forced to flee towering flames. More than 500 homes have been destroyed. Jennifer Johnson reports.
For the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, South Africa has lifted its overnight curfew. The government believes the country is past the peak of its fourth wave, driven by the Omicron variant. As Redmond Shannon reports, that is encouraging news for country’s like Canada, which is still experiencing a surge in cases.
As 2021 wraps up, Global News takes a moment to look back at some of the biggest moments of the past year. Once again the pandemic dominated our lives, but so many other events have happened. Some inspired us, some shocked us, and several moments even made us cry. Mike Armstrong reports.

Thank you for entertaining us all these years Betty. You are an incredible kind, beautiful, funny lady who will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace.😇🙏🙏🙏
So how does a fire that started by downed wires have anything to do with climate change? What a farce.
The Premiers of the Prairie Provinces are more worried about pleasing their greasy wheels than protecting citizens. It's all self-serving politics in an attempt to increase their failing political careers, and the numbers will soon show how inept their leadership is. Albertans have continually had the highest Covid numbers per capita throughout the pandemic, and our failed leadership will assure that we continue on that trend. Bless our Medical personnel, we as fellow Albertans (Kenny is NOT) are so sorry for what you're about to go through because of the very man who's been attacking you from day one. The hearts and support of Albertans are with you, even if our leadership isn't! To all other fellow Albertans; we're on our own again, Good Luck everyone!
STAY GOLDEN FOR ETERNITY SWEET BETTY WHITE🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺
It's shocking to me that the Richest country in the world has all its power lines above ground how many wild fires in the past 10 years have started there by overhead power lines?
Good luck Ted and thank you for your work at Global you'll be missed by us all!!!🍁🇨🇦🍁✝️🛐♾️💟🕊️🌹💐
Funny how they placed the evidence omicron amounts to little hospitalizations in all cases at the end of this broadcast 🤔
She was taken from us weeks prior to her 100th Birthday so that everyone that passed on before her could plan a special 100th. Birthday bash in heaven on January 17th.
This was a special lady ,
Donalt T Satan of Canada the Pope and Queen bless you.
The problems go away after the next 2 Covids get you all.
T IS FOR TORTURE U IS FOR UNREPENTANT DEAD ANIMALS" SOON.
Mesmo que eu não conheça a Betty White,ela mereçe um F 😿
Pray for Betty because she's probably not in heaven as your supposed to know your going to heaven not think it this is why were in the end times the world thinks it can reject God and his salvation, Jesus is the only way and if you don't repent to him and turn from sin your not allowed in heaven no matter how good you think you are:) FYI if you haven't accepted Jesus he's real not a religion You just go in a private place tell him you believe and tell him your sorry for what you think you did wrong; he will answer that prayer then start reading the bible and praying and God will tell you what to do
The way to restore economy is to find the right vaccine something the world has not, science don’t know how grim the next mutation will be like…
A pioneer, an icon, a true Capricorn; the GOAT, Betty White will be missed. This reminds me of when Cicely Tyson passed away early this year at 96.
The fight against allergies is more than ever more important.
The jabbed telling the unjabbed to get jabbed is like sending postcards that say "Wish. You were here" from the TITANIC.
Anchor has an annoying accent
Rip Betty White 1922-2021
Thank you, Global National: a great synopsis of the incredible career of an extradordinary woman. Betty White would be pleased!
An unfortunate consequence of allowing forests to develop in residential areas. Man cannot learn that a profusion of trees that are in the decline stage of their life cycle is a virtual invitation to ignition. Don't touch that tree! Nature ignores mans declarations to save and cleanses the forest of the old and dying to make way for new growth, as it has been doing since time immemorial.
That this is a residential forest is immaterial.
Saving a forest is ill conceived. Trees go through a life cycle just like humans. If the objective is to prevent the harvest of trees in the wild then trees need to be treated as a crop. Trees are not a crop that can be harvested in one year, but planted each year may be harvested annually after the first crop comes on stream. That is the way to save forests. Man has learned to sow wheat instead of relying on gathering grain from plants in the wild, but is having extreme difficulty on grasping the same concept when applied to trees.
Increasingly, we see residential areas being developed where old trees approaching the end of their lives and hazardous are left standing instead of planting new ones. Imagine a society comprised solely of octogenarians. Absent is the vigor and joy of youth. All that we have are old trees collecting dust and covered with dirt with limbs breaking off and tumbling during windstorms. Absent is the fragrance of new growth and the fluttering of new leaves on a green trunk that exudes beauty and the joy of life making one feel good just to be alive. Instead, these old behemoths that shut out the daylight leading to depression, drive a generation and its successors to drugs, drink and worse.
She took the boos ter on dec 28th dead 3 days later. This must stop
So gonna miss Betty white 💔
What an amazing human!
that lady who cant teach grade 9 math should utilize youtube and learn from videos. there is so much great content. i am teaching some students grade 8 math.
You brought light laughter to my childhood ..when I needed it the most.
You will be missed my Dear 👑Betty White 🕊🌹♥️♥️♥️
RIP Betty White! She was entertaining to many.
As for the Covid, stop the moving and stop the spread.
As for global warming, I can imagine government already has a plan to relocate all the fat people evenly around the world to avoid tilting the earth.
