This Friday on Folk U Radio, CKTZ 89.5FM, from 1 to 2:30 is Folk U's first Reporter Roundtable. Four reporters/commentators from the region will join to share the "making of the story" and everything they've learned about Fish Farms, the closures, the controversies, what's at stake for rural communities, what this means for you. And we will hear more about the burgeoning movement of Seaweed Farming which is starting right here on Cortes Island and may be a model of sustainable development and reconciliation for small communities.

In partnership with Cortes Community Radio & Cortes Currents and the support of regional reporters including Binny Paul (LJI reporter for Campbell River Mirror), Rochelle Baker (LJI reporter for National Observer), Roy Hales (Cortes Currents), Ashley Zarbatany (Folk U Radio's political and climate commentator). Moderated by Manda Aufochs Gillespie (Folk U Radio) and Bryan McKinnon (Cortes Community Radio).
