Edmonton’s Hour of the 2015 Homelessness Marathon

The 2015 Homelessness Marathon aired across Canada on February 25 & February 26. Hosted by CRFC 101.9FM in Kingston, 14 community and campus radio stations produced 15 straight hours of programming tackling homelessness issues.

CJSR contributed Edmonton’s hour, with hosts Daniel Johnson and Rylan Kafara focusing on two major issues – the impact of gentrification in the downtown area on the inner-city community, and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in Edmonton and Canada. It included interviews with the University of Alberta’s Jay Scherer, MacEwan University’s Michael B. MacDonald, as well as cultural support worker Gary Moostoos, and a number of inner-city community members.
