In our latest episode of Free Talk Allison talks to biologist Dr. Alexandra Morton and others about research linking pathogens in farmed salmon to the declining wild salmon stocks along the coast of BC
We heard that Vancouver is getting a wrap for being a hard place to meet people. In this episode, Allison talks to Jorge Amigo and members of the social group “#bemyamigo” about their experiences meeting people in Vancouver.
Allison and I went down to The Creekside Community Center to talk with Vancouver city Councillors and residents about the city’s proposed removal of the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts and what that could mean for traffic, greenspace, and the future of Vancouver.
On an otherwise sunny day, Allison and I saw a cloud hovering above the Vancouver Art Gallery. It only appeared to be growing in size so we thought we’d go check out what was going on.

I recently produced a video for the Vancouver Youth Symphony Orchestra to promote their upcoming “extravaganza”. In a first time ever partnership with the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra, 175 musicians will storm the magnificent Chan Centre for the Performing Arts stage on Sunday, May 20th, 2012 at 2:30pm. Tickets are available through Chan Centre, VYSO office and Ticketmaster. Early Bird Tickets are $10 to $20. Regular tickets are $15 to $35. Group tickets and Premium Reserved Seating Tickets available.
This VYSO/TSYO Celebration Concert will feature orchestral favourites including Shostakovich Festival Overture, Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis, Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini and the tremendous mass orchestra finale of Tchaikovsky’s Capriccio Italien. Conductors Roger Cole and Alain Trudel will direct the talented musicians of two of Canada’s most revered youth orchestra programs. The afternoon will include the VYSO annual lottery draw, and special season finale presentations.
Allison and I talk to BC residents about their concerns over the proposed Endbridge pipeline from Edmonton to Kitimat BC.
Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipelines would run along the Kitimat River to the coast where crude oil tankers would be introduced for the first time. In a recent filing by Enbridge, the company suggests that it would eventually expand to shipping 944,000 barrels a day, nearly double the current proposal. With over 400 oil tankers in Douglas Channel a year, that would mean even direr consequences for the Kitimat River. With condensate tankers and Liquid Natural Gas tankers thrown in to the mix, no one would be able to fish on the coast. You can learn more about the proposal at Forest Ethics

We were a little shocked to hear that Sears was closing down, so Allison and I set out to see what Vancouver thought of the news.
In this episode Allison talks to CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ales), The Rio Theater in East Vancouver, and the community about the some of BC’s strange alcohol laws, and their affect on local business and the community.
Allison talks to the health officials and residents of the Vancouver DTES about the InSite supervised injection facility and it’s impact on the community.
Insite operates on a harm-reduction model, which means it strives to decrease the adverse health, social and economic consequences of drug use without requiring abstinence from drug use.
