Evening Update: Trudeau, Biden vow to form alliance to tackle climate change; Tiger Woods in hospital after car crash

Good evening, let’s start with today’s top stories:
 
Trudeau, Biden pledge to create alliance to tackle climate change
 
Developing story: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Joe Biden vowed to form a North American alliance to battle climate change at their first summit today, as they sought to reset the relationship between the countries in the wake of former president Donald Trump’s belligerence and isolationism.
 
At the meeting, held through video link, Biden told Trudeau that the United States “has no closer friend than Canada.”
 
The pair are unveiling a U.S.-Canada Partnership Roadmap, which contains marching orders for key cabinet ministers to start working together on six areas: the pandemic, climate change, the economy, diversity, security and international alliances.
 
Trudeau is also expected to push for U.S. leadership on China’s detention of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, a senior official told The Globe.

Canadian school offering Nova Scotia diplomas operating in China’s fraught Xinjiang region
 
A Canadian school program has kept its doors open in China’s Xinjiang region for nearly a decade, collecting tuition and issuing Nova Scotia diplomas to students in the area where large numbers of local Uyghur Muslims were forced into political indoctrination during that time, Asia correspondent Nathan VanderKlippe reports.
 
Since 2012, the Nova Scotia program at Karamay Senior High School has offered a small number of students a ticket out of Xinjiang, where the government is accused of committing crimes against humanity. Yesterday, Parliament declared the oppression of the Uyghurs in Xinjiang a genocide.
 
But today, China’s foreign ministry said it knows of no attempt to investigate allegations of systemic abuses in Xinjiang.

COVID-19 vaccinations could allow toughest restrictions to lift before September, Tam says
 
Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam says results from COVID-19 vaccinations are so encouraging that she thinks the need for massive lockdowns could be over before the end of the summer.
 
Personal protective measures such as wearing masks and limiting in-person contacts could be with us longer, she said, but those will depend on how well vaccines prevent not just serious illness and death, but also the spread of the coronavirus.
 
Procurement Minister Anita Anand said today that most of this week’s vaccine deliveries – 643,000 doses from both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna – are already on the ground. Also today, Premier François Legault said Quebec will begin vaccinating the general population next week, beginning with Montreal-area seniors aged 85 and up.

Central bankers Macklem and Powell address economic recovery
 
The Bank of Canada is expecting “a solid rebound in the immediate months ahead,” Governor Tiff Macklem said today in a speech, although the longer-term recovery in employment will be complicated by “structural” changes in the Canadian economy.
 
“With a complete recovery still a long way off, monetary policy will need to provide stimulus for a considerable period,” he added.
 
Meanwhile, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell is pushing back on suggestions that loose monetary policy risked unleashing inflation and financial risks in what may be an emerging economic boom. Testifying before the Senate banking committee, he said the central bank would keep its attention focused on getting Americans back to work as a vaccine-related recovery proceeds.

Scotiabank, BMO report first-quarter earnings: First-quarter profits at Bank of Nova Scotia and Bank of Montreal climbed back above prepandemic levels as concerns about rising loan losses eased, and senior bankers are voicing growing optimism about the potential for an economic rebound this year. Both banks set aside less money to cover potential writeoffs than in any period since the pandemic began.
 
Tiger Woods in hospital after crash: Golf star Tiger Woods suffered leg injuries and is undergoing surgery after a car crash in California this morning, authorities and his manager say.
 
Rankin sworn in: Iain Rankin has been sworn in as Nova Scotia’s new Liberal premier along with a 17-member cabinet that includes his rivals from the leadership race.
 
Prince Philip treated for infection: Prince Philip, husband to the Queen, is “comfortable” in a London hospital where he is being treated for an infection, “but is not expected to leave hospital for several days,” Buckingham Palace says.
 
Obama-Springsteen podcast: Former U.S. president Barack Obama and rocker Bruce Springsteen have teamed up for an eight-episode Spotify podcast series, Renegades: Born in the USA, swapping stories about their upbringings. The first two episodes were released yesterday.
 
Clinton-Penny mystery novel: Former U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is collaborating with Canadian author Louise Penny on State of Terror, a novel involving a “novice” secretary of state, working in the administration of a rival politician, trying to solve a wave of terrorist attacks. It’s set to be published Oct. 12.
