Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Briony Penn, Janine Bandcroft Dec. 12, 2011

This week: Worse though than those that would risk the living world out of ignorance, or for personal enrichment is a political process, our political process, displaying a single-minded determination to wreck the environment and all that dwell within it. Just such a case was revealed recently by naturalist, geographer, journalist, and author Briony Penn.

Listen. Hear.

In an article appearing in Victoria’s Focus Magazine, Penn exposes Department of Fisheries and Oceans, (those same that brought you Canada’s East coast cod collapse not so many years ago) mismanagement of West coast herring quotas.

Briony Penn and putting a net around the Honourable James Ashfield, the minister supposedly responsible before it’s too late in the first half.

And; Officially known as the ‘Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness Action Plan’ it’s the final fruition of the long sought continentalist vision of “Fortress North America.” It is what Canadian nationalists like David Orchard describe as the greatest existential threat Canada. It is an act of finishing through treachery what force of arms could not accomplish; conquest by deception.

Whither Canada under the ‘Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness Action Plan’ 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 news from the city’s streets and beyond. But first, the DFO caving to industry at the peril of our wild West coast ecosystem.
