Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Marc Loiselle, Jacques Fresco, Jan. 28, 2002

Monday, January 28th, 2002

As Canada’s monetary and political independence sink slowly into history; as our leaders sell our sovereignty, erasing our most dearly held institutions; as Canadian soldiers depart for foreign wars, led by foreign masters, we may take a winter’s moment to ponder the legacy of our great acquiescence to corporate rule. Ontario has become a toxic dumping ground, B.C. the new haven for pipelines and offshore oil derricks, the North withering under climate change, and the Atlantic fished out. And, on the great prairie, our oceans of wheat are threatened by a spill more destructive than anything Exxon could muster. On the first half of today’s show, organic farmer and member of the Saskatchewan Organic Directorate, Marc Loiselle on the fight against genetic pollution in Canada’s heartland.
And, can we change our culture? No-one can doubt, our present course is disastrous for the environment, human health, and holds no hope of achieving either justice or peace. But what to do? In the second half of the program, inventor, author, futurist, and co-founder of The Venus Project, Jacques Fresco will be here with his vision of an alternative, sustainable, new world civilization…But first, Marc Loiselle fighting genetic pollution.
