Gorilla Radio Flashbacks with Chris Cook, Shirley Douglas, Dave Barrett, Joan Russow, Steve Orcheton April 2000

The 911 for Health Care Tour took daughter of iconic Canadian politician, Tommy Douglas, credited as the founder of modern Canadian universal health care, across the country to rally the people against federal government cuts to transfer payments to the provinces who administer the program.

I went down to Victoria’s manifestation and spoke with Shirley, another icon of the political left, Dave Barrett, then-Green Party of Canada leader, Joan Russow, and NDP MLA Steve Orcheton.
