9:00 pm
>> resounding victory. >> this country's friends all around the world, i have a simple message to you - on behalf of the 35 million canadians - we're back the message to the u.s. from canada's next prime minister justin trudeau could deal a blow to the fight against i.s.i.l. damaging disaster -- dodging disaster. >> the discussions do not
9:01 pm
constitute u.s. support for russia's action in syria u.s. and russia sign a memorandum of understanding to avoid fighter jets. in citing hate red. right wing frenchman le pen goes on trial for what he said and emotional reunions. >> back then we were married. we hadn't called each other darling, not even once. >> families torn apart from the korean war reunite with loved ones. some for the first time in 60 years. good evening, i'm antonio mora, this is al jazeera america. we begin in canada where nearly a decade of conservative rule comes to a sudden halt.
9:02 pm
the liberal party led by justin trudeau swept into office. they not only won the popular vote and the right to set up a new government, they captured a majority in parliament. tad he spoke saying he intended to keep a campaign pledge to withdraw fighter jets. john terrett has more on how canada's turn to the u.s. affects the rest of the world. >> reporter: less than 24 hours after a stunning victory, incoming prime minister justin trudeau reaffirmed a main campaign promise, and it drives a wedge between ottawa and washington d.c. he told president obama he intends to pull canadian jets from the u.s. coalition bombing i.s.i.l. the move came in a telephone call. >> they made an important contribution thus far and we are appreciative of them lending
9:03 pm
their talent and skill and expertise to that effort. we hope that we can continue to count on their ongoing support for this important mission. >> reporter: monday night justin trudeau saw a stunning landslide victory sweeping his liberal party party back to power. >> on behalf of 35 million canadians, we're back. [ cheering and applause ] >> reporter: it ended nearly 10 years of conservative control in canada. >> it's time for a change in this country, my friends, a real change. >> reporter: justin trudeau ran a campaign similar to obama in 2008. not hope and change, but real change now. tuesday, the white house acknowledged justin trudeau's victory. >> the united states and certainly president obama congratulates prime minister-designate justin trudeau on a liberal party victory in the elections. justin trudeau is closer in ideology than outgoing prime minister stephen harper is.
9:04 pm
beyond this issue that doesn't mean he and the white house will see eye to eye on everything. canada is the largest trading partner. 707 million annually. the oil-based economy is hurting. justin trudeau plans to turn it around by running a deficit to pay for infrastructure spending and stimulate the economy, sake it will help canadians buy more u.s. products. justin trudeau supports the pipeline run gs 1,200 -- running 1,200 miles from canada to nebraska. but less of a cheerleader than stephen harper. the pipeline aside justin trudeau is likely to work with the u.s. on environmental policies. while justin trudeau and president obama are close on the environment... ..and the incoming prime minister sl vowing to improve -- is vowing to improve relations, moving to pull canadians out of the combat zone means one of the white house's worst fears came through faster than it probably thought
9:05 pm
yes, we mentioned justin trudeau's victory is having an impact on canada's participation in the u.s.-led coalition against i.s.i.l., iraq and syria, al jazeera's national security correspondent jamie mcintyre joins us from washington. canada is it not totally pulling out. how will canada's move affect the fight against i.s.i.l.? >> militarily it will not be all that significantly. canada contributes four f-18 firebombers to the campaign in the aftermath of their withdrawal, and they'll withdraw on an orderly timetable, not immediately. the other countries that are bombing, 1,100, will continue the campaign, so the bombing will go on uninterpreted. canada says it will be part of the anti-i.s.i.l. coalition, but the contribution will not be in the combat phase, it will not be with trainers or advisors. this is a blow to the united
9:06 pm
states. canada has been the u.s.'s most - one of the most reliable military partners and has been in every coalition the united states has been in in the last 50-75 years with the exception of vietnam, and the u.s. and canada jointly defend north america, part of the north american air defense command. symbolically this is a big deal, and the newly elected prime minister told the president in that phone call this afternoon that he was going to honour his pledge to end canada's combat mission in iraq and syria. >> we talked about canada's continued engagement about i.s.i.l. and we continued to engage in a responsible way, that understands how important canada
9:07 pm
has, has a role to play in the fight against i.s.i.l. he understands the commit iments i have made around ending the combat mission. >> the other fallout from the election. the u.s. was counting on canada to buy upwards of 65 of its new next generation joint strike fighters, the most expensive weapons programme the pentagon had, and is counting on foreign military sales to make up the cost. the newly elected prime minister justin trudeau wants to not spend the money, and use it to build up canada's navy, and go with a less expensive option of a more conventional fighter plane like the f-16s, or go with a french fighter plane. that is what might hurt lucky martin, making the f-35 benefitting boeing which makes the f 18 super hornet which canada night consider buying.
9:08 pm
there's one more place this plays out. united states was hopeful that the conservative government of stephen harper may join the u.s. in ballistic message defense, and it's a lit less likely with the liberal justin trudeau in office. going back to the bombing of i.s.i.l., there was an agreement to avoid accidents in the skies over syria. >> the big thing is the pentagon said this is a memorandum of understanding to ensure safe operations. it is not an agreement in the sense that the u.s. does not agree with what russia is doing. it didn't want to call it an agreement. basically make sure the pirates talk to each other in the air, they have rules for staying a safe difference apart, and there's backup procedures. the u.s. made a point of saying this doesn't change anything, it's a way to operate professionally in the same airspace, there's no cooperation between the united states and
9:09 pm
russia in finding a way towards peace in syria. >> jamie mcintyre in washington. thanks. dave was a campaign advisor to justin trudeau, and joins us from toronto. and serves as the national campaign chair in the 2004 and 2006 general elections. david, congratulations on the victory. good to have you with us. a lot has been made how as liberals president barack obama will have more in common with justin trudeau than he did with i.s.i.l. pulling out of the i.s.i.l., not buying f-35s. that doesn't sound like a great start. >> well, i think that there's certainly a difficult - there always is a difficult set of issues between the two countries, with the largest trading partners. we have a lot in common, as the previous story indicated. we work with the u.s. on
9:10 pm
military matters, i think there was an exception that worked out. canada was not part of the invasion in the early 2000s. so there's a set of tough issues between the country, ith you start off with -- i think you start off with two people that like each other. that are kin dread spirits in the way they think about politics, they have a lot of friends in common. as a starting place, if it's the case that job one for canadian prime minister is to have good relations with the american president. on a personal basis there's ground to think that will happen. >> the liberals will have a majority of the seats in parliament, despite them having less than 40% of the vote. how strong of a mandate is it? >> well, you know, in canadian terms, there's a debate here about the electoral system. there's a first past the post
9:11 pm
system. where you can win a constituency with less than 50 president of the vote. some propose representation, justin trudeau said if this is the last election that is conducted on the first past the post. in canadian terms, it's a strong mandate. no one will question it. 40% of the popular vote is around the level at which most majority governments have been formed. >> what do you attribute the victory. justin trudeau being more charismatic than stephen harper, a leader for the past decade. >> there was fatigue with the existing government and a strong desire for change. 70% of canadians said for several years that they wanted to change in government. and that, in fact, most of those people felt that strongly. this was set up as a changed
9:12 pm
election i'm not sure it was there for the conservatives to win. what made it look like it might win is there was a close race, and which would emerge as a primary challenger to the conservatives. what was settled was the party would bring more change, and the change that people were looking for, and once it happened there was a movement of people. >> talking about change, he's a young leader stephen harper claimed that justin trudeau did not have a necessary experience to govern. do you think he'll struggle. are you confident he has the ability and the people to turn
9:13 pm
his ideas into effective policy. >> you asked what the story of the campaign is. the role story is when justin trudeau became the leader of the liberal party: in canadian terms they pent an amount of money in negative advertising against him. for the last three years, all of which have the tag lining not ready. not ready to be prime minister. they tongue that into the public contest. once the campaign started, in debate. campaign settings, the whole power of the conversation advertising agency was judo said back against them.
9:14 pm
the people made the judgment that he was ready, and i expect him to be strong. >> david hurl, advisor to the prime minister-elect. pressure to have you with us. >> thank you for having me on if canada withdraws from the anti-i.s.i.l., the skies will be crowded with war planes and missiles. the u.s. and russia look to minimise on-air accidents, activists say syrians keep dying. >> air strikes like these killed a number of civilians in syria. the government jets killed men people since fighting began. these are part of a campaign by the russian military. moscow's defence ministry said it hit workshops and a depot used by militants. rebels are fighting government
9:15 pm
forces, as well as further north on the road to aleppo option groups say they destroyed a carrier. the government retook a number of villages. >> the violence forced 35 thous in the region. in the morning there was rockets and barrel bombs, using heavy weapons against us they wouldn't have the had much of a chance to day. most of the victims are civilians. aleppo is 50km from the border with turkey, and was a financial and industrial hub. it's been the focus of a three way strike between rebels, and
9:16 pm
forces for months. now that russia is involved in a fight from the air, there may be a change in power on the ground. there's an impact on people living here as more are forced to run away from home persecution or racial hatred. a former french president is facing prison for comments made five years ago some prisons abandoned to the convicts inside.
9:17 pm
9:18 pm
9:19 pm
a disturbing report from human rights watch is raising the alarm about horrific conditions in brazilian prisons. researchers say they found extreme overcrowd, terrible sanitation, and the threat of violence. the situation has grown so dire in the state of panambuco authorities gave up control of some prisons to hardened prisoners. >> reporter: in this sell in a brazilian prison, 60 men share 6 bunks for sleeping. no cots, no mattresses, a few hammocks for those that don't have to sleep on the floor. >> you get tuberculosis, skin diseases, germs, everything. the floor is foul. people pee on it and step on it. where do i sleep, here?
9:20 pm
i was laying here. here is someone else's bed, and another sleeps at the entrance to the bathroom. >> the watchdog group human rights watch calls it a disaster. three times as many men crammed into the space as it's meant to hold. faeces, sweat and mould is overpowering. >> i got here a year ago. come carnival it will be a year. >> more than half of the detainees are waiting for trial. >> the lack of any kind of classings system means they are crowded with prisoners. the rate of h.i.v. is 42 times higher in the prison than the general population. tuberculos tuberculosis, 100 times higher. prison systems understand staffed.
9:21 pm
medication scarce. this man says he has been living with a rash for three years. >> i was taken to the doctor. they didn't do anything. >> the prisons are short staffed, with one guard for every 30 prisoners, the worst ratio in the country. the minister of justice says there should be one guard for every inmate. prison guards adopted a practice of the delegating authority, controlling the cell blocks in a prison. they are called kee holders. >> the key holder is a dangerous person, in the sense he has power over life or death. >> they act like crime bosses. extorting payments from inmates. they recruit militias to beat and threaten detainees that question their rules. riots are not uncommon. seven were killed in a riot in the brazilian state. four died during rioting,
9:22 pm
breaking out in a prison in august. two of the inmates were beheaded. another pushed off the roof. >> as crowded as the prison system is, they do not rank first for incarcerations. that goes to the u.s. more than 2 million, 200,000 are in prison. acting for 700,000 for every 100,000. china follows with 1,600 inmates. russia is third with 644,000. and then it's brazil, where 607,000 are incarcerated, breaking down to 300 people per every 100,000. we are joined by the managing director of the american division at human rights watch. i don't know where to start with the report. there's so much. why is it happening? brazil is a significant developing country, and this is
9:23 pm
in violation of its own laws and international conventions that it is a party too. >> yes, the prison system in brazil has been a disaster for years. we knew that, we decided to visit the system. we went to this one, and we, ourselves, having seen this stuff before, were shocked by how bad it is. overcrowding in the prisons is a big problem. nationally there's 60% more people in the prisons than there should be. that's the national level. they have built the prisons to house around 10,000 people, and they have packed more than 30,000 in those prisons. even for us it was shocking. >> you hear about overcrowding and sometimes it sounds like an abstract number of. you have got, i read, in one prison only one bunk per seven
9:24 pm
inmates, people are living on the floor, sleeping on the floor in filth. >> yes. we visited one cell among many. 60 people with six beds, one window, one toilet. people had to sleep on the floor. there's not enough space. many sleep sitting up. so they don't fall over, they tie themselves to the bars. that's how bad it is. >> as we heard in the story, the prisons are disease ridden. the rate of tuberculosis, 100 times that of the general population, that's a tangler to the population in brazil. >> absolutely. part of the problem is there's a tendency, a desire not just in brazil, many places to treat many, demonize and dismiss them. they want to lock it up. and forget about the problem.
9:25 pm
it's a problem that is a haven of disease and criminality. they affect the society as a whole. i read that 60% of the people in this prison have not been convicted. that's in violation of the law. you create a whole - it must be a cancer in that society. >> people have gone in, they've been arrested for a minor crime. in which they should not serve any time in gaol. >> they are thrown in with the worst of the worsts. they will wait months, years, to see a judge. we have a case of someone that is in there for six years. >> you had a case where someone paid in prison after the sentence was over. it's incredible to see that disorganization, and that lead
9:26 pm
to crazy stuff. where you have gangs running the prisonses, including security. >> yes, you have a situation where they haven't just locked people up and thrown away the key, they locked people up and handed the key to thugs within the prison yards that run the cell blocks as if it's their personal thiefdom. >> is there a willingness to do something about it. >> no, they have started a process now of requiring that when people are arrested they are brought before a judge. that may seem basis. the the question is whether there's the will to follow through. if they do, it should reduce the problem of overcrowding. will not soef solve it but be an important step forward. >> thank you coming together - emotional

9:47 pm
transparency. i welcome and everyone should welcome the directives recommended. particularly - and this has little media coverage, the directive about the ways in which f.i.f.a. ignored the development of women's soccer and the need to take it seriously. we have to be clear about this. all of this is produced by crisis and protest. the idea that we pull back saying that the system works, to me, would be a tactical mistake. if we want the soccer world cleaned up. >> it's a goose that lays a lot of golden eggs, it's a multi-billion organization. if they move to transparency. taking the term limits and put them into effect. wouldn't that prevent the monarchy that f.i.f.a. has seen, and really eliminate some of these problems? >> yes, i mean it wouldn't eliminate all of them. first of all, term limits at 12 years, sepp blatter has been
9:48 pm
there for 17 years. we are not talking about a great difference, i don't think anyone is saying that sepp blatter started to turn five years ago, and the arbitrary age cap of 74 struck a lot of people as odd. a lot were thinking to themselves - you have people that age running as president of the united states. let's get some blood in here. i handwritingued that the fundamental problem is you need divisional powers. one growing the sport and the other watchdogging. >> you need the watchdog, because it just complicates matters. blatter steps down, but sepp blatter is suspended and can't campaign. what led to the suspension is sepp blatter made a suspicious
