On Saturday, 4 December 2010, on the Vancouver Cooperative Radio program Redeye, Jane Williams interviewed, first, Robyn Duncan, Purcell Program Manager, Wildsight, and, second, Kathryn Teneese, Chair, Ktunaxa Nation Council. Topics discussed included the proposed Jumbo Glacier Resort, its potentially adverse impacts on grizzly bears, the Ktunaxa sacred site known as Qat’muk, and the Qat’muk Declaration.

Here are snippets of the interviews:
