Dissent in Canada - A pre-panel discussion
On September 30, 2010, the Train welcomed indy media journalist (The Real News) Lia Tarachansky, prominent human rights and constitutional law lawyer Yavar Hameed, and Ottawa peace activist and trade unionist Larry Rousseau for a discussion about the state of dissent in Canada, in light of G20-Toronto.
The on-air show was in preparation for a panel discussion (including Train host Denis Rancourt) organized by NoWar-Paix as part of the 4th Ottawa Peace Festival.
Ms. Tarachansky also discussed her new film project about Israel's occupation of Palestine, Seven Deadly Myths, and noted that Canada had in recent years significantly moved towards a police state such as she has experienced in Israel.
