This week Wojtek, Marc, and Lynn are together to talk about stories they covered this past week.

We hear some very worrying news about Canada’s forests. Climate change and warmer winters have allowed a tiny beetle to flourish, and after massive destruction in British Columbia forests on the west coast, they have spread east across the Rocky Mountains to Alberta and are threatening the entire boreal forest of Canada

On the good news front, we hear from an experienced Canadian female journalist and human rights activist who says she has seen things getting better for women around the world, in a slow process but one that is gaining momentum. She talks about this change and the courage of the women behind it, in her new book The Ascent of Women.

We also hear from a labour studies professor at Ontario’s Brock University who is seeking to augment her programme with poems about class struggle, poverty and resistance.
