CKMS News – 2021-01-20 – Waterloo Region Weekly Roundup

Host: Melissa Bowman

The Region of Waterloo will finalize it’s 2021 budget this month. Calls from the community to reallocate funds from policing into more upstream services has led to, as one councillor declared, an unprecedented interest in the police budget this year.

This week’s Waterloo Region Weekly Round-up takes a look at how we got here, diving into police board discussions and delegations from community residents in support of reallocation of funds towards Indigenous and Black-led community initiatives.

This program is a part of the “Local Journalism Initiative” grant program and is funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada, the Government of Canada, and the CKMS Newsroom.

Deep Threes – Music Beyond Boundaries

Deep Threes | Music Beyond Boundaries (black and red text)Deep Threes — Music Beyond Boundaries is the weekly radio show that brings you eclectic instrumental soundscapes that fuse jazz, electronica, soundtracks, modern classical, experimental music, and more… “Deep” is a nod to the deep tracks of heard on freeform radio. “Threes” refers to the MP3s that fill up our hard drives and computing clouds.

Since going on the air in 2010, Deep Threes has brought the listener long pieces that take music beyond boundaries. New releases from independent artists. Rediscovered gems from the past. Compelling pieces from with room to breathe. Music with bite, passion and depth.

Themes are not chosen so much as they emerge. Long jams and instrumental tracks create a sense of flow. Light touches of spoken word, found sound, and subtle remixes bind the music into sets.

A Deep Threes mix can float over the clouds in the night sky, or gradually take you across terrain that is radically different than the starting point. Your destination: an oasis of deep listening and discovery.

At the heart of this process is the music. The synergy of math and physics, mechanics and electronics, infused with the human spirit, rising up in a river of feelings alongside all the glistening gems we found along the way. The Deep Threes.

Deep Threes – Music Beyond Boundaries is produced by Jay and is syndicated through the NCRA Community radioExchange at Deep Threes – Music Beyond Boundaries — Series Information.

CKMS News – 2020-12-28 – Waterloo Region Weekly Roundup

Host: Melissa Bowman

Today’s episode has a few updates on local council and public meetings including the region’s recent public input budget session and Cambridge’s State of the City year in review video.

However, the majority of today’s show focuses on the issue of affordable housing. Given the recent approval of Kitchener’s Housing For All Strategy and both Waterloo and Kitchener proceeding with Inclusionary Zoning, I take a closer look at these policies and council decisions.

This program is a part of the “Local Journalism Initiative” grant program and is funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada, the Government of Canada, and the CKMS Newsroom.

CKMS News – 2020-12-24- Local Connections with the 2020 Indian Farmers’ Protest

Host: Shalaka Jadhav

In the last few months, infographics on the 2020 Indian farmers’ protest have been circulating across social media, with little large scale media coverage on the issue.  These are a series of ongoing protests against legislation passed by Parliament of India, led by Prime Minister Modi, in September 2020, which does away with the “mandis system”, which sets a minimum set price; this minimum set price allows for more predictable incomes for farmers, which is especially important when the impacts of climate change are already unraveling. Not only is the legislation being contested, but also the way it was pushed through, as there was no substantial consultation with the farmers unions.

These acts of farmers’ and workers’ resistance have been noted to be the largest protest in recorded history, with over 250 million farmers and workers across India going on strike against agricultural reform that leaves farmers at the mercy of corporations.  For this segment, I will be in conversation with three community members:

  • Asha Virdee, a graduate from the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Environment, who has worked locally on farms;
  • Zabeen Khamisa, a PhD candidate at the University of Waterloo studying socio-political movements through digital ethnography; and
  • Jodi Koberinski, member of the Waterloo Regional Food Systems Roundtable, and a PhD candidate at the University of Waterloo, studying commodification, and how food commons are a mechanism to develop economic structures.

Together, they will consider the importance of these farmer strikes globally, and why we need to consider the parallels and relevant to Waterloo’s regional food system.  These considerations touch ecological concerns, the interconnectedness of our food systems, and ultimately, why farmers rights are everyone’s rights.  

If you’re interested in supporting these efforts, Asha Virdee has offered up the following organizations, which are linked below:

  • Khalsa Aid, an international NGO with the aim to providing humanitarian aid in disaster areas and civil conflict zones around the world. 
  • United Sikhs, affiliated with the United Nations, is an international non-profit, non-governmental, humanitarian relief, human development and advocacy organization.
  • Sahaita.org, a non-profit organization committed to educating, supporting and uplifting the underprivileged members of society. 

This program is a part of the “Local Journalism Initiative” grant program and is funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada, the Government of Canada, and the CKMS Newsroom.

CKMS News – 2020-12-24 – Reflecting on 2020 in Kitchener-Centre with MPP Laura Mae Lindo

Host: Shalaka Jadhav

Adapting, evolving, and bringing attention to the importance of rebuilding, Member of Provincial Parliament Laura Mae Lindo, representing Kitchener Centre as a member of the Ontario New Democratic Party, spoke to key moments in 2020. 

She speaks to the year’s accomplishments for her office, including forwarding Bill 196, Seniors’ Advocate Act, 2020, which would move to establish a seniors’ advocate as an independent, non-partisan officer of the Ontario legislature, “fueled by the amazing work of frontline healthcare workers… and on a personal note… how important it is to me to care for our elders, who brought us everything, are holders of such wisdom”. 

Laura Mae is also proud of the End Police Violence policy paper, the importance of which was echoed by the marching of over 20 thousand community members in support for the movement for Black lives. Laura Mae notes the challenges with navigating the pandemic as a new politician, reflecting on key turning points for Kitchener-Centre, including how the pandemic has allowed for emergent conversations around equity, particularly anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism.

Her message to constituents includes reflecting on how we may have grown through this year, and to build gratefulness amongst the chaos.

 

From the Office of Laura Mae Lindo, MPP Kitchener Centre:

“Laura Mae Lindo, Member of Provincial Parliament for Kitchener Centre, is a respected activist and educator who holds both a Masters and PhD in Education. Her commitment to building inclusive communities both within and outside of educational environments is grounded in her knowledge of how to put anti-oppression theories into practice.

Laura Mae is a knowledgeable advocate for the rights of women and girls, a respected ally to marginalized community members, and, most importantly, a courageous public speaker on issues often left unaddressed in the mainstream. Laura Mae is the Official Opposition Critic for Anti-Racism, and Citizenship and Immigration.

The Leader of the Official Opposition appointed her as Chair of Official Opposition’s first Black Caucus, to collaborate with Black communities and allies to address systemic anti-Black racism in Ontario.”
