1.  BREAK'IN ICE Radio presents Jane Sterk, Leader of the BC Green Party - Dec 11th
 
This Tuesday on Break'in Ice, we'll be interviewing Jane Sterk, newly elected leader of the BC Green Party. Join us in discussion centered mostly around the economy. Does Jane support Campbell's newly minted ' Climate Action Team '? Or is the ' Climate Action Team ' a smoke screen for Campbell to look green for the Olympics..? And how would the Green Party bring about a more democratic political system?
 
Join Jack Etkin and myself as we learn more about what the Green Party of BC has to offer.

----------------------------------------------
 
Break'in Ice is broadcast every Tuesday between 4:30-5:30 pm on CFUV UVic Campus/Community Radio 101.9FM / 104.3 CABLE or you can listen to the show on our website at: http://cfuv.uvic.ca/

"Once upon a time on a small island in the Pacific there lived six children who loved to sing and make music. Tomorrow was the Winter Solstice, the day when the sun would be reborn, but something was wrong! A mysterious force was at work. Its goal was to keep the island where these children lived, and the whole world, trapped in the dark. The children had just one night to change this, to call back the light, to sing back the light, together
