MOST RECENT PROFILE OR PODCAST
This radio broadcast was funded by a grant from the Community Radio Fund of Canada and the Government of Canada’s Local Journalism Initiative.

A combination of diligent sanitization and long microphone cables, plus a newly constructed and never-inhabited space, enabled us to set up for Covid-19-safe recording. (The room was so bare that you may hear a certain amount of natural reverb in the podcast.)
Tanya has lived on Cortes Island for 14 years, and has long been aware of the persistent and under-addressed problem of domestic violence. Every community whether rural or urban has to deal with this issue, she says, and Cortes is no exception.
