Coast Reporter Radio: The politics of fireworks and building a zero waste tiny home


article continues below

This week on Coast Reporter Radio:

Political fireworks, or – more accurately – the politics of fireworks as Gibsons council finds itself split on whether to take up a local company’s offer to sponsor a show.

BC seems to be on track to join several other jurisdictions in North America in banning the practice known as conversion therapy.

A local couple is building a Zero Waste tiny home.

And, at least one local politician talks about what makes cycling to work less enjoyable than it could be, and here's the spoiler – it’s not the state of our bike lanes.
