-Former CKUT host Abdelkader Belaouni celebrates a big victory. Kader, as he is more commonly known, used to host Radio Sanctuary - The Hour of Power while he was in sanctuary at St-Gabriel’s church in Point St-Charles. For years, he was forced to live there while he was resisting a deportation order back to his native Algeria. Well, Kader beat his deportation order in 2009, and was just granted Canadian citizenship. We’ll be joined on the phone with him to celebrate this victory.
