CKMS News – 2021-01-28 – On the road to unionization for academic workers at the University of Waterloo

Host: Shalaka Jadhav

One of many ongoing and underlying issues that the pandemic has brought attention to includes workers rights, safety, and wages. Across various workplaces, the importance of unions in giving workers a collective voice in the workplace has amplified, and this extends to the students at an institution we may not often think of: the University of Waterloo, and its student workers.

In this segment, I’ll be in conversation with Lynne Sargent and Nicolay Videnov, students who are part of the Committee to Organize uWaterloo, a grassroots campaign to unionize the academic workers at the University of Waterloo.  Their interviews are complimented by Graham Cox, a researcher and organizer at the Canadian Union of Public Employees, referred to as CUPE during this show.  With over 700,000 members, CUPE is Canada’s largest union. CUPE represents 70,400 workers spanning 233 collective agreements in the post-secondary education sector.

CKMS News – 2021-01-21 – Blackness and Becoming – author Antonio Michael Downing on “Saga Boy”

Eleven years after his debut novel, Molasses, and three years after winning the RBC Taylor Prize as one of Canada’s top Emerging Authors for nonfiction, Antonio Michael Downing‘s new book just came out.  

It’s a memoir called Saga Boy, My Life of Blackness and Becoming, and it’s the story of searching for identity, something this Canadian author has been exploring for a long time.

We’ve also got two new album releases today:

She Is Your Neighbour

In 2019, Moving Beyond Violence (text surrounding a circle with silhoutte of a dragonfly)She Is Your Neighbour was launched in the form of a blog series and social media campaign. Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (WSCWR) asked community leaders to share their perspectives on domestic violence and explain why they are invested in ending it. These community leaders became ambassadors of the She Is Your Neighbour project. Together, WCSWR and these leaders explored different types of abuse and challenged the misconception that domestic violence refers only to physical violence. Many ambassadors shared stories of emotional, psychological, and financial violence that they have witnessed or experienced.

In fall 2020, the She Is Your Neighbour podcast was released! In the podcast, WCSWR takes a deep dive into domestic violence. Through thought-provoking discussions WCSWR addresses hard topics like domestic violence and the drug trade, violence against Indigenous women and girls, challenges for transgender youth seeking support, and more.

She Is Your Neighbour is hosted by Jenna Mayne.

She Is Your Neighbour is not currently on the Radio Waterloo schedule.

What Next?

WCSWR encourages you to get involved! Read a blog story, tune into the podcast, buy a book, start conversations, and use the hashtag #SheIsYourNeighbour. We can’t do this without you! We all have a role to play in ending domestic violence.

What is Domestic Violence?

There are many forms of domestic violence, all of which include attempts to maintain power and control over the thoughts, beliefs and behaviour of a woman by creating fear and/or dependency. All forms of abuse result in the woman feeling powerless, unequal and unsafe.

Forms of Domestic Violence

Domestic abuse includes but is not limited to:

  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Psychological
  • Financial
  • Sexual
  • Verbal
  • Spiritual

Know the signs

Signs of domestic abuse include but are not limited to:

  • Insults or put downs, name calling
  • Violent outbursts
  • Threats of violence or harm
  • Threats to destroy property or harm pets
  • Forced sexual acts
  • Physical assault
  • Control over finances
  • Unkept promises of change

We all have a role to play in ending domestic violence

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.

Please e-mail jj@deep3s.com to find out about backup download sites.

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.
