And that’s the show!

Midweek was hosted by Ben Silcox and Carol Boeira today.

We discussed everything from climate change to women’s sports to Carleton’s butterfly show –  which you’ve got until Monday, October 12th to check out!

With less than two weeks until the federal election, we also covered student voting and local election debates. Tomorrow’s the last day that students can vote right here at Carleton University.

We talked about Arthur McDonald, the Canadian co-winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, and got a shout-out from Daniel Richer, the man from Aylmer who came third in the International Town Crier Competition in New Zealand.

Midweek will be back on air next Wednesday at noon on CKCU.

Today’s Radio Show Combo: Music Videos, Sex Ed… and Voting

By | Coming Up | No Comments

In less than two hours, our second show will be hitting the air, and we’ve got all kinds of stories lined up for you today.

CUSA’s music video urging students to vote got some bad reactions on campus last week, but it didn’t stop there. Vice media called it “the most embarrassing music video in Canadian history” – yikes! Amanda Gregorio has the response from CUSA’s President Fahd Alhattab.

Tomorrow’s the last day you can vote from right here on campus – we’ll let you know how.

Ontario’s bringing in a new sex sed curriculum this year, and Veronica Green talked with a parent who has some concerns.

You’ll also hear about Sunday’s candlelight vigil on Parliament Hill for missing and murdered indigenous women. Jen Halsall spoke with the Native Women’s Association of Canada about developing awareness of the issue during this election.

In local news, Jim Watson held an election debate that some candidates skipped out on and this weekend Ottawa residents heard about being environmentally sustainable at the Green Energy Doors Open showcase. We’ve got the stories.

Hear it all on CKCU 93.1 FM today – right after the BBC News at noon.
