Cortes Radio Apologizes

Cortes Radio Apologizes

  Cortes Radio, CKTZ 89.5 FM, apologizes for broadcasting two hours of static during the All Candidates Meeting Thursday night. We know there were people who trusted in our promise to cover this event. How We Failed While our pre-event tests were successful, we failed to anticipate the effect a parking lot full of cars would have on the signal. Unfortunately, this also means we do not have a usable recording of the event. Upcoming Interviews On Lunchtime Locomotion The only radio coverage CKTZ has of the election is the interviews two of our programmers made with the candidates. Nat King Cono will be interviewing: George Sirk at 12 PM on Lunchtime Locomotion, Friday, October 12 Noba Anderson on Lunchtime Locomotion, Friday, October 19. Both of these programs are being recorded and will be put up on the website as podcasts. Interviews On The ECOreport We also have podcasts of the candidates half-hour-long interviews with the ECOreport Why Re-elect George George Sirk? (https://cortesradio.ca/george-sirk-for-regional-director/) Why Re-elect Noba Anderson?

George Sirk For Regional Director

Originally Published on the ECOreport In my second interview with the candidates for Cortes Island’s Regional Director, I became aware that they have a very different vision of how the island should be governed. The current Director, Noba Anderson, portrays herself as an instigator, who “convenes conversations that would not otherwise happen.” Many of the island’s best known projects came about through her direct intervention. Though George Sirk chalked up a similar list of accomplishments during the nine years he represented the island (1996 - 2005), he stresses the idea that there should be more of a separation between the Regional Director and specific business projects. In this morning’s episode, I ask,I ask why should we choose George Sirk for Regional Director? How A Bylaw Should Be Changed “The most important issue for Cortes is to return trust to the political process,” he says. Sirk points to Anderson’s recent attempt to push the proposed new zoning bylaw (#309) through prior to the election as an example of how that trust is being eroded. There was not room in the half hour podcast above to repeat his detailed analysis of this “half baked” legislation’s shortcomings. Encountering unexpected opposition, “the Director has consistently changed the story from ‘my and staff’s thorough review’ to, oh dear, it’s now become a ‘draft’…”  He adds that this legislation never went before the Advisory Planning Commission (APC). There were no public meetings prior to this.  “When we did the 2002 bylaw, we … [held] public meetings - not hearings. Staff came. Up went the bylaw on the wall. People got a chance to see the...

Cultivating Traditional Health

Cultivating Traditional Health

Recent research and long held traditions around health and food have challenged conventional practices of making available and promoting high carbohydrate, sugary, processed foods for convenience and economy. Some studies now conclude that animal fats have more to do with maintaining good health than eating the previously recommended low fat diet. Traditional Indigenous diets clearly show how eating from one’s own environment suits our overall well being and health. The experiences of our ancestors also has been shown to inform our own genetics, affecting our present day to day life. In this episode of Deep Roots Island Waves, Producer Manda Aufochs Gillespie links place, food, genetic history and health for insight into possibilities for understanding how we’re much more than we eat.” Culturing Traditional Health by Manda Aufochs Gillespie | Deep Roots Island Waves http://rest.s3for.me/specialproduction/14+Cultivating+Traditional+Health+mp3+master.mp3 Traditional Health & Epigenetics “This story of salmon boy is a fantastical creation myth and it is a story of how essential animals were to one indigenous community. Or how the health of a people in intricately connected to the health of their food source. This connection is behind one of today’s newest science buzzwords, epigenetics. “Epigenectics is the study of how the expression of our genes can be turned up or down by environmental factors. We are learning that things we once considered hardwired, such as our tendency towards obesity, heart disease and even schizophrenia can be influenced by our grandparent’s diets or something like our great grandparent’s exposure to certain chemicals, or even experiences such as something that may have happened to our ancestors like one winter spent very hungry or extremely...
