CKMS-FM at Winterloo

Radio Waterloo had a booth at Winterloo this past Saturday, 17 February 2024. We were supposed to broadcast live from 11:00am to 5:00am, but it was cold! How cold was it? It was so cold that the computer we use to link to the studio froze up! Our wonderful Technical Committee managed to find another computer, which we put inside the DJ Dome so it wouldn’t freeze up too. But that meant we couldn’t use our microphones to chat with the people at Winterloo. Happily, DJ King Kadeem did an excellent job as a radio host, so our Live To Air broadcast was a success!

CKMS News -2024-02-14- Arming Israel Brings Increased Risk and Scrutiny To Canada and Waterloo Region

CKMS News -2024-02-14- Arming Israel Brings Increased Risk and Scrutiny To Canada

by: dan kellar

As Canada continues supplying military equipment and components to the Israeli government amidst the attacks on Palestinians, the federal government is coming under increased scrutiny. On February 1st, the Nicaraguan government announced they were initiating action against Canada, Germany, the UK, and the Netherlands at the International Court of Justice for supporting the Israeli aggression in Palestine.

While the Canadian government has repeated that the equipment sold to Israel is “non-lethal”, anti-war activists have been challenging the claim, holding protests, and along with opposition MPs, they have been calling for an arms embargo.

This show features Rachel Small of World Beyond War discussing the groups activities, and the new online map which highlights locations and production details of weapons companies involved in arming the Israeli military, including 8 locations in Waterloo Region. CKMS News also discussed accountability and transparency in the Canadian weapons industry with Kitchener-Centre Green Party MP Mike Morrice.  

CKMS News asked the ministry of International Development to confirm that the government has received letter from the Nicaraguan government regarding the initiating of actions against Canada at the ICJ for arming Israel.  John Babcock, a spokesperson for the ministry told CKMS News that “Global Affairs Canada has seen the Nicaraguan press release.”   He concluded “We are not in a position to comment further on this matter”.

the Regime interview with Capt. William Simpson: Wild Horse Fire Brigade

Managing to extinction seems to be the method invested by those taxed to protect.  While others circumvent the law,  Bill Simpson has some real, practical answers to the, so called, Wild Horse Problem. There are roughly 100 000 wild horses in the U.S., the majority in Nevada. Bill is on the border of Oregon/California and has encountered wildfires. Catastrophical to the survival of those in the surroundings, Wild Horse Fire Brigade encourage results by wild horses. Incredibly, via grazing, and their existence in the shrub and eating grasses and plants, wild horses help their environment, and can hence help prevent wildfires.

Listen to this informative interview with Capt. Bill: “the proverbial Renaissance Man; a retired U.S. Merchant Marine Officer …, specialist in long-term off-grid survival and disaster preparedness….” [from his Muck Rack bio].

CKMS News – 2024-02-07 – A Waterloo Sobeys will be served ACORN’s “Menu for Fair Food For All” as part of national protests

CKMS News – 2024-02-07 – ACORN Menu For Fair Food For All

by: dan kellar

On Saturday February 10th, the social and economic justice organisation ACORN is holding a national day of action to “Stop Grocery Giants from Price Gouging”.  In Waterloo, the regional chapter of ACORN is organising a demonstration at Sobeys on Bridgeport Ave.

In a press release ACORN claims that consolidation in the grocery industry is driving-up prices and that “Grocery giants in Canada are on their way to set a new record – $6 billion profit in 2023… [they] are now earning more than twice as much profit as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic.”

This show features an interview with Acer Bonaparte of Waterloo Region ACORN, who discusses the day of action and reviews ACORN’s “Menu of fair food for all demands.” While the office of Minister Sudds gave CKMS News an update on the school food program, Sobeys had not responded to requests for comment when this piece first aired.

Housing or Heritage? Kitchener struggles with tough questions

February 2, 2024

Much of the six-hour Kitchener City council meeting on January 29, focused on delegates’ opposition to the City’s proposed Growing Together Plan.  

One of the objectives of the plan is to increase affordable housing stock close to the ION stations and major transit areas.

Most of the delegates to Council were in various ways associated with property development and opposed the recommendations in the report.

There were others, not related in a financial capacity to issues of rezoning, who also disagreed with the recommendations.

Some of the objections raised were about the challenges of preserving the integrity of heritage neighbourhoods during a housing crisis in which the city wants intensification.

Gail Pool of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario North Waterloo Region branch was one of the people who presented opposition to the Report’s recommendations for the Victoria Park Heritage District.

 

World Radio Day, Tuesday 13 February 2024

On February 13th, people worldwide will celebrate World Radio Day 2024 | A Century Informing, Entertaining and Educating (closeup of a microphone in a shock mount, with an out-of-focus sound board in the background showing brighly lit indicators)World Radio Day. Whether you listen to it in your car, at home, on your mobile phones, at work, radio continues to play an essential part in everyday lives. We rely on it to learn what is happening in our communities, when disaster strikes, to educate us on important topics or to feel better connected to the world around us. And while radio is seeing some declines with station closures, it’s seeing a rise across sub-Saharan Africa, where rural people rely on it for their lives and livelihoods.

To celebrate, the NCRA-ANREC (stylized illustration of a hand holding an old-style microphone with a blue sunburst behind)NCRA/ANREC and Farm Radio International / Radios Rurales Internationales (illustration of a microphone with leaves at the base on a green background, text in a circle around it)FRI are partnering to get people to listen to the radio on February 13th. Whether it’s your favourite local radio station, campus radio, public broadcast, or a special program that will be streamed live that day, we want as many people as possible to tune in to show that audio continues to impact our everyday lives.

NCRA/ANREC and FRI will also partner with CKCU-FM to host a live broadcast, syndicated here on Radio Waterloo from 11:00am to 2:00pm. You will hear from broadcasters past and present and from around the world talking about the importance of radio.

“In Canada, campus, community and Indigenous not-for-profit radio reaches over 75% of Canadians, providing invaluable local news, information and entertainment in spaces where the local voice is often not heard. It fosters music growth, disseminating verifiable information with journalistic integrity and provides opportunities for organizations and companies to inform their community through a free-to-access medium,” says Barry Rooke, Executive Director for the NCRA/ANREC.

“In sub-Saharan Africa, radio is the world’s most accessible and popular communication service. When combined with mobile phones, which allow farmers to share their own stories on the airwaves, it brings lasting change for some of the world’s most vulnerable people—small-scale farmers in rural Africa,” says Kevin Perkins, Executive Director of Farm Radio International. “By sharing knowledge, amplifying farmers’ voices, and supporting better practices, audio has the power to reduce food insecurity, improve health and nutrition, and plant the seeds for long-term positive change.”

Last year, Farm Radio International directly reached an estimated 24.1 million people with life-changing audio services over the airwaves, enabling about 5 million to make a positive change.

This live broadcast will take place on Tuesday, 13 February 2024, at a morning event in downtown Ottawa, re-broadcast on CKMS-FM 102.7 Radio Waterloo from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
