Return of the Action Items

I was in Montreal this past week and I contacted the wonderful people who are now hosting my old radio show, The Friday Morning After, to find out if they wouldn’t mind me sitting in on the show. Well, turns out they not only didn’t mind but wondered if I would do 20 minutes on something. I chose 4 somethings.

Sit back and listen to my very rusty radio delivery. Oh, and find out about the oil sector writing curriculum in Alberta, the feds imposing lifetime gag orders, and a quick chat about electoral sign defacement. That stuff is important too.

On this week’s edition of The Action Items, after realizing that no one needs to hear another commentary on Idle No More from a middle class white guy, I go in search of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples.

Andrea Houston is in Montreal this weekend as a featured speaker at the 2012 Humanist Canada Conference, being held at the Hilton Bonaventure. The theme of this year’s conference is Sex and Secularism and that’s a topic on which Andrea is uniquely qualified to speak. Her tireless reporting in Xtra on the battle to force the Ontario Catholic School Boards to allow Gay-Straight Alliances in their schools has earned Andrea broad acclaim and played a part in her being named Honoured Dyke in this years Dyke March, part of the massive Toronto Pride event. She’ll be sharing the stage this weekend with the likes of Sue Johanson and Leanne Iskander, another prominent figure in the GSA fight.

Jonathan Goldsbie is a Toronto-based writer who has been alternately described as the resident communist at the National Post, the king of Toronto political tweeting, several things I can’t repeat, but most appropriately he’s an advocate for public space issues and a contributor to Spacing Magazine, Xtra, Torontoist, and The Grid, among others.

On this week’s Friday Morning After on CKUT 90.3FM in Montreal (worldwide at www.ckut.ca) we held a special roundtable to talk about two very important aspects of the ongoing student strikes. First, we talk to Montreal journalist Justin Ling about the escalating numbers of arrests at the night protests and about whether or not the SPVM are following the rules of arrest.

Then we speak with François-Olivier Chené, otherwise known as the man who brought the casserole protest to Montreal, about the growing popularity and influence of that grassroots form of decent.

And finally, a special feature from the May 18th edition of FMA in which I break down the constitutionality of Bill 78 on the very day it was passed by the National Assembly.
