Before his 2006 ascent to power in Canada, the current prime minister reportedly told an audience at a right-wing think tank confab: "You won’t recognize Canada when I’m through with it." Whether that is true or apocryphal, taking a quick, cross-country check up proves the point; from warfare to ...
March 30th marks Land Day in Palestine, a commemoration of Israel's 1976 determination to expropriate thousands of hectares of Palestinian territory. Six were killed by the IDF during demonstrations back then; tens of thousands more have died at the hands of Israel since.

2014 marks the United Nations' ...
Palestine Today and In the Future - A Talk by Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh of Bethlehem University
The horrors we daily see meted out by the World's most powerful against the most vulnerable may be difficult to understand without the benefit of historical context.

The grim truth is: Today's death squad mercenaries, and the junta regimes they both foment and support, are the fruit of dragon's teeth ...
Today is CFUV's annual FunDrive show. Over the last thirty years, thousands of volunteers, and scores of suffering underpaid staff, have made the descent into the bowels of the Student Union Building here on the campus of the University of Victoria to provide a musical, political, and cultural alternative ...
When it comes to public infrastructure initiatives, Victoria is fast earning a reputation for suffering from severe policy constipation. With 13 municipalities, the Capital Region District, and both provincial and federal government interests to be satisfied, it's little wonder big-ticket projects have ...
With the Olympics now over, it's time for the Great Game to begin again...or continue still. A constant thread has run throughout the Carter-Reagan-Reagan-Bush-Clinton-Clinton-Bush-Bush-Obama-Obama presidencies; each has, in its turn, followed Zbigniew Brzezinski's plan to isolate the Soviet Union, undermining ...
While the news this week is rife with rumours of coups and possible new elections coming to Ukraine, another test of democracy is unfolding on this side of the world. Earlier this month, El Salvador held its presidential election.



The tiny, Central American nation was infamous, in the 1980's especially, ...
Though we here in the Garden City have become well-used to spending February counting daffodil blooms, (and gleefully rubbing that pursuit in the faces of Canada's still winter-bound eastern denizens) the weather outside in Victoria lately is pretty frightful. But, looking around the World, we can still ...
On today's program, a master class in journalism, high finance, and election fraud from reporting investigator, Greg Palast. Trained at Chicago's infamous School of Economics under Milton Friedman, (Godfather of Trickle Down Economics and inspiration to the Gordon Gekko mantra of the era, "Greed is Good") ...

Stand with Ken Boon and other B.C. farmers!

Site C is only one of the threats to farmland and food security currently on the horizon. The B.C. government is considering a proposal ...
Imagine waking one day to find your country is not your own, and you suddenly deemed a "stateless person." You seek redress, but find the system provides none for a non-person caught outside accepted definitions.

Deepan Budlakoti is a Canadian citizen; at least that's what he and the Canadian government ...
As 2014 begins, we in British Columbia are standing on the precipice of a familiar conflict; one pitting the interests of nature against the forces of economy. Each side has staked its respective positions: Jobs before scenery versus sustained natural survival over short-term profit. The "War in the ...
We don't need a weatherman to tell us which way the wind blows; or even Bob Dylan to tell us the times they are a changin'. Politically, environmentally, socially, and economically; the World of 2014 is not the same as the one most of us knew when we set out on our journey of life. The older you are, ...
This week marks the twelfth anniversary for Camp X-Ray at the illegal American military base located at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. On January 11th, 2002, four months after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, Gitmo was opened for business. That business, according to my first guest, was to act as an experimental ...
welcome to GR's annual year-end show. We'll leave the regular weekly format to feature the year's news highlights and low. Mostly though, the idea is to bring some of the years most interesting stories, and more importantly its non-stories, those conveniently forgotten or undelivered by the state and ...
Welcome to GR's Xmas 2013 show. We'll leave the usual format today for a very special program. Though I've been doing this show since 1999, the first GR X-Mas Special didn't appear until 2004. I don't recall why that is, but I do remember, the first program began with Ini Kamoze's tribute, 'All I Want ...
As the birth date of Homo technologicus is debatable, so too the end time of the age will be difficult to determining with any certainty. I imagine post-technopocalyptic sociologists, sitting about the fire asking: "Was it the Industrial Revolution, Capitalist production models, or runaway resource extractive ...
America's Secretary of Defense visited Afghanistan over the weekend. Chuck Hagel expressed confidence in the prospects of Afghanistan's parliament signing an agreement with the Superpower to allow its troops stay in the country past the announced 2014 withdrawal. Current president, Hamid Karzai is less ...
Last week, BC Energy Minister, Bill Bennett promised a 28% rise in BCHydro electricity rates, to be phased in over the next five years. The news was received badly by many of those who will be forced to come up with the extra cash, especially large, energy intensive businesses operating in the province.
