GroundWire | January 5, 2015

This edition of GroundWire was produced on Algonquin territory in Ottawa by Tom Radford, Ophira Horwitz, and Audrey D. Luffy on unceded Algonquin territory in Ottawa, and by Jessie Wins on Attawandaron territory in Guelph.

This week we bring you a special year-in-review featuring the hottest stories from 2014. Jessie Wins presented Bill C-36, Ophira Horwitz covered oil pipelines, and Audrey D. Luffy talked about missing and murdered Indigenous women.

The stories that we featured on the show were collected over the course of the year. See below for a list of stories, airdates, and download links.

Stories about Bill C-36 were by Rachel Swatek, Amelie Philipson, Maegan Thomas, Layla Lemghalef, and Carly Forbes.

Stories about pipelines were by Michael Welch, Nicky Young, and Jay Peachy.

And the stories by missing and murdered Indigenous women were by Meghan Murphy, Ophira Horwitz, and Jessie Wins.

We thank Ed von Aderkas, Jason Armstrong, and Jay Jackson for their feedback. And we thank Tom again for staying up late to produce this episode.

We erroneously say that Rachel is from CFUV, but we know that she lives in Ottawa and worked for the NCRA as the GroundWire Coordinator last summer!
