For the last few years, Canadian freelance journalist Jennifer Moore has watched the mining industry chew up South America. She’s in Honduras now, watching the generals; Victoria Street Newz publisher, and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft, currently riding through America, not always easily, at the bottom of the hour for the view from there.
