Terrific but one big bug

Love everything about Google News. It's become my number one source of news.
I only have one issue though. When I open up ANY article from CBC News (and only CBC News) the article will show and then go white after a few seconds preventing me from reading it. This only happens with CBC News. I'm currently experiencing this on iOS 11.4 on an iPhone X.

Please add Night Mode

Please add a Night Mode for those of us who like to read the news in bed, before we go to sleep.

Annoying bug

Have used this app for a long while and notice now that when I click through to an article it opens a safari window in the back going to google search.
Annoying and also unnecessary as it requires switching back to the app

Pls fix google
