CKUT’s 10th Annual Homelessness Marathon
The 2012 Homelessness Marathon served 14 hours of national broadcasted discussions on homelessness, for the tenth consecutive year!
The archives included discussions on gentrification in Montreal, community displacement caused by the development of Canada’s oil sands, interviews with politicians, and personal stories from those dealing with homelessness across Canada, along with a whole lot more. The gratitude and pride for the marathon, from listeners and speakers alike, was vibrant throughout these archives; much of it was a celebration for the original creation of a strong platform to discuss homelessness on such a large scale, ten years earlier.
