Syria, C-51, Civil Liberties and 9/11: Interview with Media Mornings

This morning I went on Vancouver Co-op Radio and W2Media’s Media Mornings with Irwin Oostindie to talk about our work at Voices-Voix, the federal elections and civil liberties in Canada. We talked about how there’s been little to no focus on refugees and migrants (until this week), C-51, civil liberties, women’s rights or Indigenous issues so far in this federal election campaign. It being the anniversary of 9/11, we talked a bit about that too.

Take a listen to the interview below, or listen to the full show here.

It also made me think of how many resources are appearing to help shed light on these issues throughout the election campaign, but aren’t necessarily receiving the focus they deserve. I meant to mention the incredible site from No One Is Illegal, but ran out of time. Check it out. And I think a future post will be on some of those resources…
