Host: Namish Modi

This piece features interviews from early June with two small business owners in the Waterloo Region.

Bon Apatreat bakery owner Chantelle Villeneuve and The Branches  (formerly Queen Street Yoga) owner/director Leena Miller Cressman. Each of the businesses has adapted during a very tough time.

Queen Street Yoga, which has run online classes since the onset of the pandemic, rebranded and is now called The Branches. They plan to run outdoor classes, in their new location when permitted.

CKMS News – 2021-06-09 – Speaking with Mike Schreiner about outdoor access equity, borders, and vaccine rollout in Ontario

Host: Namish Modi

In this piece, we spoke to Ontario Green Party leader Mike Schreiner about the importance of outdoor spaces amid COVID-19. This piece is a follow-up to our outdoor play piece from last week, featuring the importance of minor sport and outdoor play.

Schreiner, an MPP in Guelph, argues that campsites should be open, and should have been open all the time. He says that if people are allowed to travel to cottages, families should be able to travel to campsites and pitch a tent. 

Schreiner says that the Ontario Government hasn’t listened to advice from the science table in terms of their restrictions. 

In addition, the piece involves topics such as the country’s borders, as well as the national and provincial vaccine rollout.

CKMS News – 2021-06-03 – Community engagement process on prime ministers statue project

download audio

Host: Namish Modi

This piece features an interview on May 26, with Guy Freedman, president of the First People’s Group, an Indigenous advisory firm based out of Ottawa.

The First People’s Group is in the midst of conducting a community engagement process in regards to the Prime Ministers Path in Baden and steps forward.

Debate around the need for the path began when the Sir John A. Macdonald statue was painted red in June 2020. The painting off a heated debate within the community of whether the statue should remain. After much deliberation, Wilmot council temporarily  removed the SJAM statue later in 2020.

Earlier in 2021, council hired the First People’s Group to conduct a consultation process and conduct community engagement for the path. 

“These are Wilmot recommendations,” said Freedman, highlighting the need for community engagement on the future of the path.

The community engagement process launched earlier in May. The next official update from the First People’s Group is on June 5 while people can input their opinions right now on the Township of Wilmot website.

CKMS News – 2021-05-31 – Outdoor play, team sports, and the pandemic

download audio

Host: Namish Modi

Our piece features interviews with Kitchener Minor Baseball president Ron Moiebrook and research manager from Outdoor Play Canada Louise de’Lannoy. 

Moiebrook shared his plans for a return to play for its leagues. The league ran both its rep and house leagues in 2020 with a shortened season. The interview took place on May 19, prior to the Ontario provincial government’s reopening announcement on May 20. 

Moiebrook said that he’s hoping for a much more complete season in 2021. Under Ontario’s reopening plans, outdoor sports could return in June. Safety protocols will be in place, while smaller leagues and a lower amount of travel are probably as players take the field again. Thus far, registration for the summer season is a bit slower, but Moiebrook expects that could pick up when there is more certainty on plans.

de Lannoy says that outdoor spaces are more important than ever, amid the pandemic. She is pleased that the outdoor spaces were slated to reopen as Victoria Day weekend began but believes most of those spaces shouldn’t have closed in the first place. 

Those outdoor spaces are supremely important, especially for those who may not have access to green space.

CKMS News – 2021-05-26 – The Mapping Displacement project and the loss of affordable housing in Kitchener and Waterloo

download audio

Host: Melissa Bowman

In today’s episode, we will hear from Faryal Diwan and William Turman who have been involved with a recent report highlighting issues around displacement locally. The Mapping Displacement project was conducted in collaboration with the Social Development Centre Waterloo Region and the University of Waterloo. The project explored lived experiences of displacement due to gentrification and development in the core areas of Kitchener and Waterloo.

Through their work, the Social Development Centre is helping highlight what can often be invisible to many of us – residents being displaced through demolitions of buildings, renovations and renovictions. Their latest report shares stories from those in our community who have been displaced and offers recommendations on how that data can help shape our community as we grow.

CKMS News – 2021-04-28 – An interview with 1492 Land Back Lane spokesperson Skyler Williams

Host: dan kellar

In July 2020, while the community was managing the COVID19 pandemic, including erecting checkpoints to keep non-residents from their reserve lands, some Indigenous folks from Six Nations of the Grand River also took action against continued land theft by housing developers and the nearby town of Caledonia by setting up the 1492 LandBack Lane reclamation camp.

Through court injunctions, lawsuits, a police raid, police intimidation, police violence, 17 million dollars in police spending, and being demonized by settler governments including Haldimand mayor Ken Hewitt and Ontario premier Doug Ford, the land reclamation action has continued and the LandBack movement has grown.

On April 20th 2021 members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs council, alongside spokesperson Skyler Williams announced the “Protect The Tract” initiative, declaring a moratorium on development in the Haldimand Tract and a need for real consultation with the community before any projects move forward.

This episode features an interview with Skyler Williams, the spokesperson for the 1492 LandBackLane land reclamation camp on Haudenosaunee territory at Six Nations in south-west Ontario.

To stay updated on the activities at the camp, check out @1492LBL on twitter and 1492LandBackLane on facebook. For more on the development moratorium and the history of land struggle at Six Nations, visit protectthetract.com
