Dr. Ben McKay's Interview on CFUR: Food Sovereignty and Neo-Extractivism

Dr. Ben McKay sat down in the CFUR, 88.7 FM, studios to talk with Sara Wray Enns about his Global Friday Lecture Food Sovereignty and Neo-Extractivism: Limits and possibilities of an Alternative Development Model in Latin America. The conversation included an understanding of what the concepts of food sovereignty and neo-extractivism are, why they matter in economic development, and what can be learned from agricultural extractivism in Latin America.

Here is the interview that aired on CFUR.

Come for a 19+ night of warm fuzzies with Danny Bell, the Brain Porter, and Rachelle van Zanten.

In this CFUR Showcase, Rachelle van Zanten brings her brand new album "It's Christmas In These Parts" to a historic PG venue, the Croft Hotel. In this surviving relic of the wild west, we will gather enthusiasts of holiday hoedowns and good music to celebrate the solstice. With the accompaniment of silent auctions to take a part the evening home and make some swell seasonal gifting opportunities, let's create an evening of celebration and seasonal spirit. This action is supported by CFUR’s mandate and ever-growing ambitions of exposing and encouraging the arts in Northern BC.

Experience Christmas at the Croft.
