  • The latest edition of Groundwire, community radio news from coast to coast to coast. This episode of GroundWire was produced on Anishinaabe territory in Thunder Bay by Carly Forbes at CILU

  • Today, September 1st, is the start of the new school year. Across Quebec, students will begin packing their bags and books. But the budget cuts in education sector, the increase of class sizes, but also the expulsions and exclusions of some pupils of from their schools make this beginning of a new scholar year very challenging for many families in the province. CKUT’s Pauline Ferrari spoke with a concerned parent who is with the group Parents Against Austerity

  • Then, Mitshetuteuat II, « Mitsh », is an eco-Aboriginal forum during which we will start setting the ground for the creation of a common front that will unite Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal environmentalists for the protection of the ecosystems and the resources necessary to sustain all lives. It is a gathering taking place on Atikamekw territory, in Wemotaci, Quebec, from September 3 to 7th. We’ll hear an interview with one of the organizers, produced by CKUT’s Christian Labreque
