February 28th podcast on the way, March 6th show to focus on education and teachers’ job action

There were some technical issues with the Tuesday, February 28th podcast. For some reason, the show did not podcast correctly, but this should be addressed very soon. I’ll have an update when it becomes available.

The February 28th podcast will include features on former city councillor and activist Jim Green who passed away this week, the “just city,” and updates on the proposed 19-storey Mount Pleasant Rize development and the Occupy movement.

The March 6th show will focus on public education in Lower Mainland cities and the BC Teachers Federation labour action. Teachers recently voted to escalate the job action, which could mean walkouts beginning as early as Monday. Vancouver high school students have organized a walkout and rally this Friday in support of BC teachers from 2-5pm at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
