CBC follow up re Shrine vs town planning

A CBC radio and television crew spent much of the day in our area yesterday doing background research and interviews at the Shrine and Ste. Marie. I was asked to participate as a local historian and reiterated my concern over the need for responsible planning that includes consultation with all stakeholders and more attention to the need for historical/archaeological assessments (whether required by the law or not) in Huronia due the the richness and density of our area's cultural resources.
I am pleased to see this process is still moving forward and has not lost the attention of the national media.

Just a quick note to let you know the news items on the Recycling Plant issue are running today - the first news story will run on radio - The World This Hour - at either/and/or 3 pm, 4 pm and 5 pm across the country. There will also be a longer item on The World at Six which will also runs in all time zones. You can also pick up the W6 item on the cbc.ca website as a podcast.
Melanie's items for TV: a shorter item may air on TV's syndication service which sends it out to the local supper hour shows across the country - which start at 5 local time. The longer item is slated to run tonight on The National.

Sorry - forgot to mention - the longer tape-talk - about seven minutes in length with Wei Chen and myself - will air on the local CBC morning show, Ontario Morning, on Friday. It's heard throughout southern and central Ontario outside of the GTA.
