Tune in to Off the Hour, your community news show on CKUT, for all the best in news from Montreal and beyond!

Featured on today’s show:

Today on the show, McGill University has been recognized as one of the top employers in the country and in the city of Montreal over the last 10 years. But at the same time, unions have been on strikes multiple times. Tiffany Lam and Caroline Huang decided to investigate the working conditions at McGill to understand this paradox on the campus. They also examined the effects of austerity on this working environment.

Then, we’ll hear Ahmad Abuznaid. He is a Palestinian that grew up in the United States. He explains how he understood the oppression on his people in Palestine and confronted himself to the condition of an Israeli apartheid. He also explains how, by his engagement in the civil right movements with his collective “The Dream Defenders”, he managed to link the Ferguson protest to the fight for freedom and peace in Palestine.

Finally, we will listen to the latest edition of Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center. The report is brought to you by George Rishmawi and Ghassan Bannoura.
