End of the Road Show

End of the Road Show

Hello listeners, my is Gregg aka Hiway Hippy. I came to Cortes Radio with my End of the Road Show the first week of June 2018. Funny thing is the station was the first building I entered upon my arrival to the island back in May. Drawn in by the hometown ambiance and the endless volumes of music I was instantly caught hook, line and sinker.   I didn’t know exactly how I would find a space to fill but I knew in my heart that I could add my own twist into ‘Puttin the Freak into Frequency’. Fortunately I was able to meet Howie while moving a local fellow and we set the wheels in motion for a chance at becoming a D.J. 3 day’s later we had an impromptu training session and as they say, the rest is history and I’ve been spinning the tunes Friday afternoons starting at 3pm through till 7pm.

Board Reality 101

Board Reality 101

Today’s Folk U Radio is called Board Reality 101. And by board I am referring to a piece of wood. What is a tree? What are our forests to us? On today’s Folk University we look deeper into this question and the incredible partnership between the Klahoose First Nations and non-nation members in creating a forest managed by a community.  Folk U Radio: Manda Aufochs Gillespie interviews Mark Lombard& Nick Gagnon from the Cortes Fortes General Partnership Cortes Forest General Partnership: A Unique Model for Community Forest Stewardship Mark Lombard, ecological builder and manager with the Cortes Forest General Partnership, joins us to open this episode to explain the Partnership, the Cortes Community Forest Coop, and the impressive and rare community stewardship being modelled on Cortes. The Cortes Forest General Partnership holds a 3,800 ha Crown land tenure and was won thanks to visionary work of those that came before including the Klahoose First Nations and their generosity. The Partnership includes three members of the Klahoose Nation and three non-indigenous members, which are selected by the Cortes Community Forest Coop. The primary function of the Coop is to represent the non-indigenous community and select these three members of the Partnership. The Co-op has no other operational decision-making regarding the community forest. Creating Lifestyle Businesses from Protecting Forest Ecosystems Nick Gagnon is from a family business of silviculturists. Silviculture is the “art and science” of cultivating forest health for the trees, and the wildlife, water, soil, and for the land stewards/users. His family supported themselves actively managing forests for their health and using the dead or lower quality trees to create fibre resources. This was heavily dependent on...
Squirrel Cove’s Bear

Squirrel Cove’s Bear

This program was funded by a grant from the Community Radio Fund of Canada and the Government of Canada’s Local Journalism Initiative.  Curt Cunningham first encountered the Squirrel Cove Bear while it was still a cub. Not knowing where the creature’s mother was, Cunningham took refuge inside the Cove Restaurant. No mother bear appeared and the cub disappeared into the woods. That was a year or more ago. Squirrel Cove Road on Cortes Island - Courtesy Google Maps Cortes Currents: Roy L Hales interviews or emails Nancy Beach, Laurel Bohart, Curt Cunningham, Sandy Hoffman, Derek and Lore Mack-Mumford,  Jason Thompson, and Conservation officer Brad Adams about Squirrel Cove’s Bear.  “There have been signs of him ever since. There is scat most nights, often all over the yard, but he’s never caused much problem,” said Cunningham, owner manager of the Squirrel Cove General Store on Cortes Island.  Areas mentioned in the story – adapted from Google Maps by Roy L Hales Some months ago Some months ago, a neighbour called Laurel Bohart over to look at some scat in their property. As she has not previously seen bear scat herself, Bohart asked Doreen Guthrie to help identify it. “Now, having seen piles of what is obviously apple scat in my yard, I know exactly what they look like: human sized, looks like someone has been eating a lot of apples,” she added.  Bear scat, after eating apples – courtesy Sandy Hoffman The Raids begin: Bohart’s & Soutch’s The number of incidents abruptly increased about two weeks ago. “The bear broke into our back yard, via our fence, leaving a belly shaped hole, where it pressed down on the wiring....
