This week: The public and professional input period, or evidentiary hearings of the Cohen Commission ends today. The Commission had already wound down, when evidence of a deadly virus present here in the Pacific Northeast was made too public to ignore. It all paints another picture of corporate-government cooperation to obfuscate truth at the expense of the environment and public safety.
Ingmar Lee is a long-time environment defender at the front lines of staying the destructive hand of industry and enlightening the ignorant to the great dangers facing his cherished Pacific Northwest ecosystem.
Ingmar Lee in the first half.
And; I cheered, “Hooray” last week when I heard of the death of Christopher Hitchens, exactly as I cheer the departure of all who support the endless wars waged against the, mainly, women and children of the world. Hitchens, for all his accomplished writing, brilliance as public orator, and punishing effectiveness as a pugilistic debater was in the end, if not just, then merely another war monger. A few thoughts on the legacy of Hitch 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, Ingmar Lee and B.C.’s War of the Waters.
