George Orr was a prospective BC Green Party candidate in North Vancouver Lonsdale until the party’s leadership decided they did not want an experienced, articulate and principled candidate, perhaps because that would threaten the BC Liberal Party’s lightweight candidate.
BC Greens appear to have very narrow objectives and a change of government seems not to be one of them.
Former broadcaster Orr created TALK!, an excellent documentary that will appeal to every person who valued radio for being unique in each community it served.
TALK! Radio held Vancouver’s rapt attention for fifty years. Decades of scoop journalism, blunt spoken truth to power!
Instant democracy! Everybody listened!
Then it was killed off!
Watch how it all happened, from fascinating start to brutal finish.
TALK! explores broadcasting and how the functions of commercial operations are driven by self-interest, not by communities needs.
While fishing for the story of radio, George lands by-catch. It’s a politician we all know.
