    Donald Trump assassination attempt / Exhibition on polar education

    On Friday's Backchat, Global Focus talks about safety and security protocols surrounding leading political figures, following the assassination attempt against Donald Trump.

    Nearly a week has passed since the former US President and Republican Party nominee narrowly escaped death, instead receiving minor injury, when a bullet grazed his right ear at a rally in Pennsylvania.
    One person attending the rally died after also being hit, while the 20-year-old shooter -- whose motives remain under investigation by the FBI -- was killed by counter assault teams.
    Security officials have been under pressure to explain why the gunman was able to position himself on a nearby rooftop.
    It was the first time since 1981 that a leading US political figure has been shot, although four US presidents have been assassinated in the course of history.
    After 9:50, we learn more from the organisers of a new exhibition promoting polar research.

    New penalty system for power outages / Suspected poisoning of a guide dog

    主持人:Janice Wong and Paul Zimmerman

    On Friday‘s Backchat we are talking about the new penalty system for power outages.

    The government reached an agreement with Hong Kong’s two power firms to fine them for major supply disruptions. The size of the fine depends on how many people are affected, and for how long.

    For example, a power disruption with a combined 15 million minutes will cost CLP around HK$20 million. Hongkong Electric will have to pay the same amount for an outage that lasts 10 million minutes.

    But some lawmakers are questioning how effective this penalty system is – pointing out that fines could be offset by an existing system that rewards the power companies for restoring power.

    After 9:45am, we look at the suspected poisoning of a guide dog at a Tseung Kwan O mall.

    9:05-9:30am Gary Zhang, lawmaker

    9:05am-9:45am Dr. William Yu Yuen-ping, Chief Executive of World Green Organisation

    9:30am-9:45am Tom Ng, Campaigner at Greenpeace

    9:45am-10:00am Sally Andersen, Founder of Hong Kong Dog Rescue
