Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Damien Gillis, Jean St.-Vil, Janine Bandcroft Jan. 25, 2010

This Week; Independent B.C. filmmaker and environmental defender, Damien Gillis. He has, in tandem with former broadcaster and politician Raif Mair, travelled the breadth and length of British Columbia giving presentations of his film and imploring the public of this province act before the salmon are driven to extinction.

Now, Gillis and Mair are partnering again to create Common Sense Canadian, a synergy of multi-media aimed at providing you the people an alternative to a media that has abandoned its responsibilities to inform fairly.

Damien Gillis and bringing back sense to the commons in the first half.

Nearly two weeks since the devastation of the Caribbean nation of Haiti, and despite countless hours of media coverage, the real story behind that devastation is hardly known.

Canadian Jean St.-Vil is a Haitian born social justice activist who has long championed the cause of the country of his birth, decrying the criminal usurpation of its democracy and continued impoverishment of its people by an unholy alliance of the American, Canadian, and French governments and the trans-national corporations they serve.

Jean St.-Vil and the undermining of Haiti in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to highlight, among other things, the latest news from Victoria’s activist Kevin Neish and his attempts to bear witness to the kangaroo court trial of Colombian union activist, Liliany Obando.

But first, Damien Gillis, Common Sense Canadian.
