Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Jen Moore, Susan Lambert, Janine Bandcroft Sept. 5, 2011

Jen Moore is past freelance journalist and researcher who lived in and reported from Ecuador for years. She was a member of a coalition of nine civil society organizations in Latin America that first brought the Canadian mining company, Blackfire Explorations into the limelight for alleged corrupt practices at the ‘Payback’ mine in Chiapas.

Moore is now the Latin America Program Coordinator for Mining Watch Canada. Jen Moore and Canada’s business practices coming home in the first half.

Listen. Hear.

And; with school set to resume in British Columbia tomorrow, there is what promises to be a battle Royale brewing between the provincial Liberals and the BC Teachers Federation.

There are already rumours of a September work stoppage, and already veiled threats of back to work legislation being quickly implemented by the provincial government should teachers walk out. The teachers say they are determined to make a difference for kids with this round of bargaining.

Susan Lambert is president of the BCTF and she’ll be here in the second half to instruct and illustrate the issues at hand in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us news from the city’s streets and beyond. But first, Jen Moore on Blackfire, Mariano Abarca, and Blackfire Exploration’s operations in Mexico and beyond.
