Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s home edition, NOT broadcast live from CFUV Radio, but emanating live-to-tape on this date, October 15th, 2020.
The recent Green Party of Canada leadership race was worthy of a Rocky picture; seeing a feisty outsider taking on seemingly insurmountable odds to challenge an establishment champion.
And, true to the billing, it was an epic contest; the campaign’s eligibility opposed from the start, and when finally mounted, run against the backdrop of a global pandemic. And what a finale! a Hollywood-inspired, blockbusting eight round, toe to toe battle between the last two candidates standing.
Lawyer, activist, and journalist, Dimitri Lascaris was our Rocky Balboa in this tilt, entering the ring promising to, “Defy the powerful. Confront injustice. [and] Unite progressives.”
Today, Dimitri Lascaris on fighting from the ropes for a Green future.
