The Trans Mountain pipeline: Canada's Adani moment? How are Canadian media reporting it?

Monday, 18 November 2019 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Heard of a company called Kinder Morgan? What about the Trans Mountain pipeline? Think of the controversy around the Adani mine here in Australia and the context for this massive Canadian extractivist fossil fuel project will begin to emerge. This week on Communication Mixdown, researcher, writer, blogger and environmental protector Bob Hackett talks about the way mainstream and alterntive media in Canada have been covering these developments, and draws some conclusions about why we should be paying attention.

Monday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
