Annalise Carr becomes the youngest person to swim across Lake Ontario. It's a 52 kilometre swim that Carr did in 27 hours as a fundraiser for children with cancer. She climbs the ladder of the pier just seconds before our newscast begins. And across the Atlantic in Dieppe, veterans are honoured in a ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the fateful operation that cost Canada so dearly. And in Syria, how do homosexuals view the conflict? We hear from individuals who are both hopeful and fearful of what the revolution may bring.
