Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Shawn Buckley, Ramzy Baroud, Janine Bandcroft Jan. 10, 2011

This Week: Shawn Buckley is a constitutional lawyer with special expertise in the Food and Drugs Act and Regulations of Canada. He has taken up the mantle for Natural Health Product manufacturers, and has beaten back Health Canada’s relentless efforts to encroach upon the right of Canadians to access alternatives to Big Pharma’s near healthcare monopoly.

Shawn Buckley on Bill C-36, the epitaph for Canadian freedom in the first half.

And; escalating violence in Gaza and the West Bank is an ominous portent of a broader and more deadly conflagration to come in the Middle East.

Ramzy Baroud is a Palestinian-American journalist, author, and Editor-in-Chief for the Palestine Chronicle. His book titles include: ‘Searching Jenin: Eyewitness Accounts of the Israeli Invasion,’ ‘The Second Intifada: A Chronicle of a People’s Struggle,’ and his latest is, ‘My Father was a Freedom Figher: Gaza’s Untold Story.’

Ramzy Baroud and declaring Palestine in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the goings on within Victoria’s street community and beyond. But first, Shawn Buckley and Bill C-36’s ill prescription for Canadian rights and good health.
