-Nearly one year after taking sanctuary in a Montreal church in order to resist a deportation order, Kurshid Begum Awan has left her sanctuary, but still remains without status. Her family and supporters held a press conference yesterday, and we’ll find out more.

-Then, 400 thousand people marched in New York City on Sunday for the historic People’s Climate March, but a support rally was also held in Montreal, bringing thousands of people out into our streets. Hailey Mackinnon from the news collective was there to file a report.
