Iconic American journalist, Amy Goodman appeared at the University of Victoria’s Michelle Pujol room to address a full house on her latest book tour, ‘Breaking the Sound Barrier.’ Goodman passed through Victoria a few years back on another book tour, but her reception by Canada’s gatekeepers this time around reminds again of the country’s rapid decline towards a security state.
Goodman anchors the most broadly disseminated news program outside corporate media. Democracy Now is seen and heard around the world across modern media. Though it may be a stretch to expect the Douglas crossing detail sophisticated enough to know who Ms. Goodman is, or appreciate how they and Canada would be perceived by their excessive treatment of the renown journalist and her associates, perhaps in the coming days questions will be raised in the House about this latest in a long line of increasingly worrying incidents involving the Border Service?
Amy talks about the incident in the audio, and below is a link to a video interview she gave with the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) Vancouver.
