The Ecolibrium Collective is made up of McGill students and community members who are fascinated by the natural world and concerned about the future of the earth!
Missed the live episode on January 22nd? Tune in Here!
Earlier in the month Climate Justice Montreal organized a full day of workshops, panels and collective strategizing to discuss how to build resistance and alternatives to a pipeline that would transport dirty Alberta tar sand oil through Quebec. We will bring you sound clips from this Day of Action and an interview from Cam Fenton, National Director of the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition.
An inter-faculty debate was organized by the Green Business Awards Project, EnActUs McGill and the David Suzuki Foundation. Listen to Part 2 of the debate when the participants respond to the question:
“What are the pros and cons of genetically modified organisms in agriculture in terms of policy, health or environmental effects?”
Of those responding you will hear Caroline Begg, a researcher in plate science at McGill University. The other debater present was Holly Dressel, co-author of many books with David Suzuki and and adjunct professor at the McGill Environment School finally the last voice present is Jonathan Glen Cross, a McGill Alumni who founded the Office of Sustainability at McGill University.
Finally, we finish the show off with a live in-studio interview with David Summerhays, a representative from the ongoing Divest McGill Campaign.
We hope you enjoy listening to local environmental news here on Ecolibrium!
