The Cortes Island’s Free Store

The Cortes Island’s Free Store

What is it? When Will it One? And What would it take to make the Free Store more Resilient for the Future? This program is a joint Folk U/Cortes Currents project funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada and the Government of Canada’s Local Journalism Initiative.  Are you thinking and wondering about the Free Store? If you live on Cortes island, the answer is probably yes. Are you drowning in stuff, or down to two bowls in a household of four people? Every week, there are new theories as to what happened to the Free Store: where it went, what will take to get it back, and also exciting possibilities to use the Free Store model to grow Cortes Island: for keeping resources local, making better use of what the island has and reducing the amount of stuff shipped off Island. Noba Anderson, our SRD (Strathcona Regional District) elected representative joins us to discuss the history of the Free Store, its organizational (or non organizational structure), and what it would take if Cortes residents wanted to grow the Free Store or expand its operations in the future. Lori-Anne then joins to discuss what the Free Store reopening plan looks like in practice. The Cortes Island Free Store story In short, the Cortes Island Free Store story goes like this: the Free Store has become a beloved island resource that is far more than a Share Shed or a junk heap but is our ReUse Centre, Thrift Store, and Boutique all in one. However, the Free Store is an anomaly that is allowed by the SRD but isn’t licensed, regulated, or overseen by any actual organization. Therefore, nothing...
The Art of Leadership

The Art of Leadership

Folk U Radio: Art of Community Leadership 101.  In this episode Colin Funk joins to discuss with host Manda Aufochs Gillespie to look at the idea of community leadership a little deeper. What is the mix of magic and resourcefulness and entrepreneurialism that makes an effective community leader? How do we cultivate that resilient and spontaneous aspects of our selves? And how do we create organizations that will support us in being responsive and visionary to the needs of a community? Even harder, how do we pivot organizations and businesses and ourselves when it is time for things to change or to let old-ways go?  Jenny Evans from North Island Employment Foundation also joins to discuss a bit more about how individuals can pivot in their work lives. Folk U Friday: Manda Aufochs Gillespie interviews Colin Funk about the Art of Leadership Colin Funk works as an organizational consultant and leadership development coach and was a trustee with the Cortes Island Business and Tourism Association and is now a director of Cortes Community Economic Development Association or as an improv actor and leader of the Laughing Mussels Improv Troop. What is Community Leadership? Manda: How do you define community leadership? What might it look like in a small community like ours? Colin: Community describes people who share a particular place and all the resources located there. A healthy community is a place where all people can meet their economic, social, physical, cultural, and spiritual needs, work together for the common good; and participate in creating their futureCommunity Leader…..a person who works with others to develop and sustain the health of the community Community Leadership occurs when anyone, regardless...
Cortes Goose hunt frightens resident, excites ecologist and could be legal

Cortes Goose hunt frightens resident, excites ecologist and could be legal

This program was funded by a grant from the Community Radio Fund of Canada and the Government of Canada’s Local Journalism Initiative.  Today we hear a first-hand account of a concerning hunting episode on October 24 in Smelt Bay, Cortes Island.   We’ll hear from Conservation Officer Brad Adams, a local authority on the laws around hunting.  And then we’ll take a deeper dive with Sabina Leader Mense into the some ecological considerations of hunting around Cortes.  Photo credit: Smelt Bay by Djun Kim via Flickr (CC BY SA, 2.0 License) Cortes Currents: Max Thaysen interviews Kim Lotnik, Conservation Officer Brad Adams and local biologist Sabina Leader-Mense about the Cortes goose hunt. (Much more in podcast) Cortes Currents learned of the reports on a local facebook page, We Heart Cortes Island, that described a scary situation.  Walking her dog Kim Lotnick tells us the story.  Kim was walking on the beach with her dog.  The weather was stormy and the seas were rough.  She saw someone canoeing and thought that it was wierd that someone would be out on the water.  Through her large headphones, she heard a loud blast like a gunshot.  She turned to look and saw a flock of birds flying away from the canoe, and something flopping in the water that looked like a seal. She would later learn that another witness to the scene saw that it was a goose. Kim began filming.  And the person in the canoe was watching her as something was pulled into the boat.  Kim describes feeling terrified and many terrible thoughts flashed through her mind about what revenge the hunter might take on her for filming his actions. ...
