    David Eby is the provincial government representative (MLA) for Vancouver-Point Grey, first elected in 2013. A proud local resident, David was re-elected in 2020 to serve a third term in the B.C. Legislature and in November 2020 was appointed to his current role as Attorney General and Minister of Housing by Premier John Horgan. Before he was elected, David was the Executive Director of the BC Civil Liberties Association, an adjunct professor of law at the University of British Columbia, president of the HIV/AIDS Legal Network, and served on the Vancouver Foundation’s Health and Social Development Committee. An award-winning human rights lawyer, he has been repeatedly recognized in local media as one of British Columbia’s most effective advocates and has appeared at all levels of court in BC. His years of legal advocacy at Pivot Legal Society to protect the human rights and dignity of homeless and under-housed residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside were recognized in 2011 by the UN Association in Canada and the B.C. Human Rights Coalition with their annual award. David is the author of several books and articles on legal rights. His handbook on arrest rights is now in its third printing, with more than 10,000 copies in circulation.

    Critical theorist Alberto Toscano joins Am Johal in conversation about his work and writings, as he joins SFU as a visiting faculty member with the Digital Democracies Institute in SFU’s School of Communication. In this episode, they discuss Alberto’s writing on the philosophy of fanaticism, and conflicting discourse and counter-histories around the figure of the fanatic, which historically takes many forms, from abolitionist leaders to peasant revolutionaries. Alberto and Am also dive into global and historical trends of authoritarianism, racial capitalism and the notion of ‘late fascism.’ Alberto speaks to expanding our concept of fascism, to recognize iterations outside of what could be thought of as European fascism. They also talk about neoliberal tendencies in post-secondary administration, and the workings of mechanisms that maintain or fortify power structures within institutions.

    Leanne Betasamosake Simpson is a renowned Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg musician, writer and academic, who has been widely recognized as one of the most compelling Indigenous voices of her generation. Her work breaks open the boundaries between story and song—bringing audiences into a rich and layered world of sound, light, and sovereign creativity. Leanne has performed in venues and festivals across Canada with her sister singer songwriter Ansley Simpson and guitarist Nick Ferrio. Leanne’s second album, f(l)light, was released in 2016 and is a haunting collection of story-songs that effortlessly interweave Simpson’s complex poetics and multi-layered stories of the land, spirit, and body with lush acoustic and electronic arrangements. Her EP Noopiming Sessions combines readings from her novel Noopiming with soundscapes composed and performed by Ansley Simpson and James Bunton with a gorgeous video by Sammy Chien and the Chimerik Collective. It was produced during the on-going social isolation of COVID-19 and was released on Gizhiiwe Music in the Fall of 2020. Leanne is the author of seven books, including This Accident of Being Lost, which won the MacEwan University Book of the Year; was a finalist for the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize and the Trillium Book Award; was long listed for CBC Canada Reads; and was named a best book of the year by the Globe and Mail, the National Post, and Quill & Quire. Her new novel Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies was released by the House of Anansi Press in the fall of 2020 and in the US by the University of Minnesota Press in 2021 and was named one of the Globe and Mail’s best books of the year and was short listed for the Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction. A Short History of the Blockade was released by the University of Alberta Press in early 2021. Her new project with Robyn Maynard,Rehearsals for Living will be released in 2022 by Knopf Canada.

    In July 2017 members of the DTES community started meeting as a collective at the Hives for Humanity Bee Space to have conversation about how to ensure that community ethics are a respected part of the process of cultural production. We define cultural production as being: any time an entity comes into a community to make a product from its culture. ie. individuals and/or organisations of journalists, film makers, photographers, students, researchers, tourists or volunteers. We define community ethics as being: a set of principles to guide behaviour, based in lived experience, acknowledging the interconnectedness of our humanity, fostering relationships of respect, responsibility, reciprocity and return. We have produced a resource card and a manifesto out of these meetings which we are launching at our event on March 7th 2019, 7pm-9pm at SFU Woodwards. Copies of the card and manifesto will be available for all to take out into the community, and will be open sourced after the event. The evening included a short panel discussion with members of the collective sharing their experiences of cultural production – the good, the bad and the ugly!

    The question of ethics should always be front and centre when it comes to doing research of any kind. For Scott Neufeld and Nicolas Crier, they aim to take this question even further. In collaboration with other folks in the Downtown Eastside and Hives for Humanity, they co-authored Research 101: A Manifesto for Ethical Research in the Downtown Eastside to help facilitate a wider conversation on ethics in cultural production, such as research, media, and artmaking. On this episode of Below the Radar, host Am Johal talks to Scott and Nicolas about how this project came to be, the profound impact it has had for the community, and what’s at stake for ethical research in the Downtown Eastside. You can access a digital copy of Research 101: A Manifesto for Ethical Research in the Downtown Eastside here: bit.ly/R101Manifesto You can read more about the processes of developing the manifesto on our blog: sfuwce.org/empowering-informed…ultural-production/

    WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT NEIGHBOURHOODS? Neighbourhoods are often positively associated with community. They tend to have a combination of qualities that communities identify with which can make them distinct. These include the people, the types of interactions they have with each other, nature, types of commercial spaces, housing tenure, and public spaces in addition to the type and design of buildings. However, there are conflicting views as to whether this distinctiveness is positive or not. Particularly with regard to residential neighbourhoods, some argue that "neighbourhood character" must be maintained to preserve the diversity of the city. Others note however that "neighbourhood character" frequently serves as an instrument of exclusion, making people feel unwelcome and marginalizing them. Neighbourhoods that do not evolve risk stagnation; while neighbourhoods that change too rapidly erase the attributes that make them unique. Are there then qualities of neighbourhoods that should be cultivated or protected? As Vancouver faces a housing crisis, how do we go about discussing neighbourhood change? In our second talk in this year’s series on “What’s the use of Heritage?”, we take a city-wide view of neighbourhoods as the city embarks on a City-wide Plan. We ask: How should we define neighbourhood character? What are the roles and obligations of Vancouver’s neighbourhoods in relation to the whole? How do city wide goals factor into residential neighbourhoods and are there neighbourhood attributes that are important and should be nurtured or protected? How should neighbourhoods be governed? What is heritage’s role in shaping a neighbourhood in response to today’s needs? How do we go about having difficult conversations around neighbourhood change?

    This presentation discusses the path of re-claiming stories that were recorded from Secwepemc knowledge keepers in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Unfortunately, these stories survive in English renditions only. Through collaborative story-writing with elders in her home community, Skeetchestn and other Secwepemc communities, Marianne Ignace and Chief Ron Ignace re-translated and re-claimed them in the Secwepemc language by re-thinking their meaning, style and message, and the places and environments they connect to. The group then turned them into digital media, accompanied by vibrant illustrations which also involved collaboration between a young artist and elders. Making these available, celebrating them on the land and reconnecting to the places of the stories, but then also making them available as an app to enable digital learning allows new generations of Secwepemc to access them and learn to tell them. SPEAKER BIO Marianne Ignace is the director of the First Nations Language Centre at Simon Fraser University, and is a professor in the departments of Linguistics and First Nations Studies. She currently directs a seven-year SSHRC Partnership Grant on First Nations language revitalization in BC and Yukon, working with 12 diverse language groups. Her own research has focused on Secwepemc, Sm’algyax and Haida language documentation, and she continues to work with elders and language learners in her home community, Skeetchestn, in her adopted community, Old Massett in Haida Gwaii and with Sm’algyax speakers and learners in Prince Rupert. Her other interests are ethnobotany and Indigenous language story-work.

    Squamish Nation Councillor and community leader Khelsilem joins Am Johal on this first episode of Below the Radar’s Climate Justice & Inequality series. In this episode, they discuss the climate crisis as a result of the colonial project, how climate change hits hardest for those already at a disadvantage, and the spaces where colonialism has existed within climate movements. Khelsilem speaks to his critique of fossil fuel infrastructure, the false narrative of individual responsibility, and the role governments play in worsening the crisis through policy decisions that favour oil and gas. We also hear about innovative affordable housing projects, such as Squamish Nation’s Sen̓áḵw Development, and how to build climate-friendly design into new housing models.
