CFURadio is very excited to announce their 4th annual Youth Academy!!! This camp for youth aged within 14-18 aims to teach teens about podcasting, radio, and media. It is a great summertime opportunity to spend time with positive adult mentors and get adjusted to the world of media!
The camp will run from July 2nd - August 23rd. We're taking registrants now.
Please see the attached press release for more info.
It’s no secret that bringing back the late 90s-early 2000s had a couple hiccups in order for a nostalgic night to appear in PG. But here we are, in the afterglow of a certainly sick show that couldn’t have happened without the help of Omineca Arts Centre, our beloved local musicians, volunteers and audience participants. (And of course our sponsors who made the silent auction a treasure trove!)
Another big hand goes to our fearless leader/Community Outreach Coordinator, Kate, who spearheaded this amazing idea of hers! WOW. If you’d like to see the full photo set of this night head on over to our facebook!
CFUR would like to wish everyone a prosperous 2019!
Is there such a thing as wishing a belated Happy New Year? In any case, this is the week that our staff is back in office and our beloved volunteers are well underway in their studies and daily schedules.
You can expect to be hearing some fresh Canadian content on our radio waves so be sure to tune in anew! If you don’t have a New Year’s resolution, you can make following us on Facebook an easily achieved goal.
Speaking of which, if you already follow us on FB you might have seen our photos from the Rachelle Van Zanten album release show with The Brain Porter at The Croft! If not, this post will serve as a retrospective for that glorious night in December 2018. That’s what the first month of the year is all about, isn’t it?
Thanks to everyone who came out that night to share in this amazing show! May 2019 bring more events like this one!
Maxime Bernier was a Member of Parliament of the Conservative Party of Canada, but following some controversies and other disagreements, has decided to leave the Conservative Party and start his own party, the People’s Party of Canada.
In June, Maxime was removed from the Conservative Party’s Shadow Cabinet. This was following some disagreements with the ranks of the CPC in regards to supply management. An anonymous Convervative MP said the reason for the removal was because of Maxime republishing a chapter from his book regarding supply management, which also accused Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer of having won the leadership because of “fake Conservatives” that joined for the purpose of protecting supply management. This controversy also raises the important issue of party discipline and its resulting implications.
Shortly after Maxime announced his departure from the Conservative Party, there was some controversy at the Conservative national conference in Halifax. A Dairy Farmers of Canada briefing book was leaked, detailing their plans for how to proceed in some given scenarios regarding motions on supply management. Notable was their “Safety Net”, which said that Andrew Scheer’s power as leader can prevent a policy against supply management, and that Andrew would be willing to use it to protect supply management. Both Andrew’s office and DFC say the info put into the book was false, but it nevertheless generated speculation. There is also some interest in being able to see the booklet, otherwise.
Supply management is a common theme. What is the PPC’s stance on it? How important is it?
When Maxime announced his departure from the Conservative Party, causing some more controversy. Maxime accused the party of being “too intellectually and morally bankrupt to be reformed”, and many Conservatives accused him of seeking to divide conservatives, or even help Justin Trudeau win next election. Is vote splitting a concern?
The potential appeal to Prince George citizens and university students, as well as possible broader value of the existence of this new party are also discussed.
