CLICK HERE to listen to this edition of the program.

On October 23rd, activists from the Alliance Romaine returned to Montreal after completing a series of marathons spanning 1500-km across Quebec to raise awareness and political will in opposition to a hydroelectric project that they say will endanger the Romaine River in Northern Quebec.

We’ll hear an interview by Tom from CKUT’s Community News Collective with Chris Scott of the Alliance Romaine, who ran across Quebec as part of this campaign.

Also today on OFF THE HOUR: Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was forced into exile following a military coup in June. He staged a return to Honduras on September 21. Thousands of Hondurans defied the coup regime’s orders and gathered in front of the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa, where Zelaya was in refuge.

Steve Steward was in Honduras for several days in September. In this segment, we hear Steward’s interview with the Red-Eye show on Vancouver’s CFRO Radio.

But, first up: The McGill Daily student newspaper brings you their weekly roundup of audio reports from the McGill campus and beyond.
