Logging on Vancouver Island, Men's Rights on Campus & Rental 100

5:04pm - 5:59pm

On today’s show we begin by learning about logging in Vancouver Island's old growth forests. News Collective reporter Ande Laidman speaks with Western Canada Wilderness Committee canvaser James Davey about the intricacies of logging in the area of Carmanah Walbran.

We then debunk accusations of sexism launched against various UBC groups/organizations, by the UBC Men’s Rights Association—a rejected AMS club.

Lastly we asses a January 15th motion to rezone two developments at 2230 Harrison Drive and 3532 East Hastings under a Rental 100 policy. Both Sara Sagaii of the Vancouver Tenants Union and City Councilor Adriane Carr give their perspective on whether the new Council should continue incentivizing the construction of rental developments under the previous Council's Rental 100 policy.
