Canadians will head to the polls today for national elections. Canada does not directly elect the prime minister, but instead gives the job to the leader of the party who either wins the majority of seats in the House of Commons, or can ally with another party to reach a majority. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faces a tough battle against Conservative Party rival, Erin O'Toole.

Taylor Wilson:

The Liberal Party has been in office for six years, and Trudeau is calling the election early during the pandemic, but he's hoping that Canadians back his response to COVID-19, which has been better than some other countries around the world. Canada has seen far fewer cases and deaths than others. And despite a slow vaccine start, has now become one of the most vaccinated countries on the planet. Trudeau has hard line stances on vaccine mandates and says they should be required for any Canadians to travel by rail or air, something conservatives oppose.

Gabby Petito Timeline: What We Know So Far

  Gabby Petito Timeline: What We Know So Far The 22-year-old vlogger went missing following a cross-country trip with boyfriend Brian Laundrie, who later returned home alone.Laundrie returned home from the trip alone at the start of September and was last seen around mid-September.

The subreddit dedicated to uncovering information about Gabby Petito has been locked down after news her body may have been discovered was revealed. Police and FBI agents searching a national park in Wyoming have found a body "consistent" with missing Gabby Petito , a 22-year-old woman whose disappearance has captivated the United States. The body was discovered on Sunday in a remote area of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, near the Spread Creek Dispersed campground where law enforcement officials had directed their search, FBI spokesman Charles Jones said.

Justin Trudeau:

The choices that leaders make in a crisis matter. Half measures won't do to fight this pandemic.

Taylor Wilson:

But many Canadians have Trudeau fatigue after he became a media darling when first elected in 2015, including features on the covers of Rolling Stone and Vogue, setting a high bar. Trudeau was also still under fire after photos circled showing him in black and brown face when he was younger.

Taylor Wilson:

As for O'Toole, he's changed his tune on a number of issues. When he won his party's leadership a year ago, he promised to take back Canada, ringing similar to Donald Trump's Make America Great Again campaign. But he's now calling himself progressive and going against social and fiscal policies that made him his party's leader. He now favors a carbon tax he once promised to kill and he's had contradicting takes on guns. He's also pressing Trudeau for scheduling the election as Canada fights a new wave of coronavirus.

Erin O'Toole:

Mr. Trudeau called an election that's costing us $600 million rather than keeping the Delta variant from spreading, rather than actually working together.

Body Found in Wyoming Confirmed to Be Missing 22-Year-Old Gabby Petito, Who Died by Homicide

  Body Found in Wyoming Confirmed to Be Missing 22-Year-Old Gabby Petito, Who Died by Homicide The body found in Grand Teton National Park on Sunday has been identified as Gabby Petito, the New York woman who vanished during a cross-country road trip with her fiancé , Brian Laundrie. © Provided by People Gabby Petito Instagram According to a tweet by the FBI's Denver field office, Petito died by homicide. Petito was reported missing on Sept. 11 — 10 days after Laundrie quietly returned to his parents' Florida home without her — prompting a search through the Wyoming wilderness where authorities believe she was last seen.

Taylor Wilson:

Polling shows O'Toole's conservatives could defeat the liberals, but Canada's far right People's Party of Canada may stand in the way and bleed votes away from conservatives to allow for a liberal victory. Polling suggest though that no party will get a majority of parliament seats. So an alliance may be needed to pass legislation.

Taylor Wilson:

The case of Gabby Petito has taken another dark turn. The woman went missing last month during a cross-country trip with her fiance. She was last seen in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. Yesterday, the FBI said they found remains of a body near the park that they believe is Gabby.

FBI Agent Charles Jones:

Earlier today, human remains were discovered consistent with the description of Gabrielle Gabby Petito. Full forensic identification has not been completed to confirm 100% that we found Gabby, but her family has been notified of this discovery. The cause of death has not been determined at this time.

Taylor Wilson:

The FBI's announcement comes after law enforcement in Florida conducted a second day of searching for Petito's fiance, Brian Laundrie. He initially returned home to Florida from the trip without Gabby and then disappeared last week.

Man Heard Gabby Petito Ask Brian Laundrie 'Why Do You Have to Be So Mean?' During Dispute

  Man Heard Gabby Petito Ask Brian Laundrie 'Why Do You Have to Be So Mean?' During Dispute "Something seemed off" between the couple, the witness told police in Moab, UtahAccording to a recently released written statement, the witness, identified only as Chris, told Moab police he was outside the Moonflower Community Cooperative near Arches National Park when he saw the couple in the middle of "some sort of dispute," KSTU reports.

Taylor Wilson:

The couple left on their trip from Long Island in New York, where they had been high school sweethearts. Before the trip, they were living with Laundrie's parents who had moved to North Port, Florida in recent years. The couple aimed to reach Oregon by the end of October.

Taylor Wilson:

After Brian Laundrie returned to Florida alone, he hired a lawyer and refused to talk with authorities. Body camera footage showed the couple in Utah at one point of their trip. They were questioned on the side of a highway after a witness reported potential domestic violence. The officer found that the situation was more a mental health crisis than domestic assault. But Laundrie told an officer that Petito hit him.

Taylor Wilson:

The case has gripped social media around the country and the world. On TikTok, a hashtag #GabbyPetito has gained more than 275 million views.

Taylor Wilson:

Congress is back in session today and lawmakers will quickly face some major decisions, one of the biggest, infrastructure. The Senate previously approved a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill last month, and the House agreed to vote on it by September 27th. It's been linked to a much broader $3.5 trillion budget plan.

Taylor Wilson:

The package has President Joe Biden priorities like expanding Medicare to include vision, dental, and hearing benefits to finance paid family and medical leave and to give federally subsidized community college and pre-K. To pay for those programs, the Ways and Means Committee agreed to overturn 2017 Trump Administration tax cuts affecting corporations and people who make more than $400,000 a year.

Gabby Petito's Father Asks Supporters to Be 'Inspired' at Funeral Held for N.Y. Woman

  Gabby Petito's Father Asks Supporters to Be 'Inspired' at Funeral Held for N.Y. Woman Gabby Petito's body was found last Sunday near Wyoming's Grand Teton National ParkServices for the 22-year-old woman took place in Holbrook, N.Y. after Gabby was found dead last Sunday. Officials have since determined her death was a homicide.

Taylor Wilson:

The House passed the blueprint for the budget, but have not passed the legislation itself yet. If they do, Senate Democrats hope to pass it without support from Republicans, but they would need every member of their own party on board and Democratic senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema have said $3.5 trillion is too steep. Additionally, Congress is dealing with extending routine government funding, increasing the debt limit, taking action on voting rights, and more.

Taylor Wilson:

The United States blocked its border with Mexico yesterday at a Texas town, Del Rio, where thousands of Haitian migrants have crossed and set up camp in recent weeks. Many of them have lived in different parts of Latin America for years, fleeing violence and an economic crisis in Haiti. But they've recently been seeking asylum in the US instead.

Taylor Wilson:

The US is now sending flights of some of those migrants gathered at the border back to their homeland in the Caribbean. Many Haitians are against returning though. The country is still reeling after an earthquake more than a decade ago killed hundreds of thousands of people and destroyed entire neighborhoods. More recently, the country has been thrown into political unrest after the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse in July.

Taylor Wilson:

In Texas, US Customs and Border Protection closed off vehicle and pedestrian traffic at the only crossing in the area on Friday. It's still not clear what migrants in the area will do if they try to avoid the flights back to Haiti. Many had already been living on the Mexican side of the border and may return there while deciding whether to try and enter the US.

Taylor Wilson:

There are concerns back in Haiti about sending thousands of people who in some cases have not been back in years to a country with few job opportunities as it stands. Prime Minister Ariel Henry said migrants would be welcomed back, but Election Minister, Mathias Pierre, said most Haitians can not even satisfy basic human needs and that the Prime Minister should negotiate with the US government to stop deportations. Guerline Jozef from the Haitian Bridge Alliance, a community organization for Haitian immigrants echoed that to the AP.

They also got other tattoos designed by Gabby, which they showed at the press conference.

Guerline Jozef:

People have literally been spending five months on a journey, dying on the way. If the United States, the superpower, first world country cannot absorb the people at the border, how do we expect Haiti to absorb them? They simply, they have fled.
