For the week of June 7, 2020.
A special edition paying tribute to the late Dermod Travis.
The face and voice of IntegrityBC died June 1, two days shy of his 60th birthday.
Hear Travis in his own words, through highlights of his four appearances on theBreaker.news Podcast since November 2017.
Also, hear from the founder of IntegrityBC and a former member of B.C.’s Legislative press gallery.
“Dermod focused upon the environment, human rights, integrity in government. His lasting legacy in British Columbia is the electoral finance reform,” said Wayne Crookes, founder of IntegrityBC.
“Dermod meant accountability for British Columbia,” said Sean Holman, professor of journalism at Mount Royal University in Calgary. “On a lot of issues he was the primary person speaking out, especially when it came to issues of democratic accountability and corruption and wrongdoing within the public sector. He was often times the sole person that could be counted on to raise those issues.”
Also on this edition, hear from the zoologist who heads the Greater Vancouver Zoo. theBreaker.news toured the Aldergrove attraction when it reopened June 1 and heard Serge Lussier’s vision for a $20 million, five-year overhaul. Listen to Lussier explain the “zoo of the future.”
Plus commentary and Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
