Interview: Anne Marie Laroche, Moncton NB backyard chicken keeper
We follow up with Anne Marie Laroche, a Moncton resident who volunteered to keep chickens in her backyard last year. the City of Moncton doesn’t normally allow chickens to be kept in the city, but made an exception in this case as Laroche was part of a pilot project spearheaded by Post Carbon Greater Moncton.
Interview: DM Stoneman, activist
DM Stoneman joins Habitat after wrapping up a protest outside the US Consulate Office in Purdy’s Wharf in downtown Halifax. Members of the Sierra Club of Canada Atlantic Chapter and other concerned citizens started a peaceful lunchtime protest against the Transcanada Keystone pipeline at noon. The local protest was held in solidarity with the two-week Stop the Pipeline sit-in that is currently taking place outside the White House in Washington D.C. Since August 20, over 700 people have been arrested outside the White House for protesting the proposed $7 billion pipeline that will carry oil approximately 2,700 km, from the Alberta tarsands to Texas refineries. We ask DM Stoneman to explain the project, and tell us his concerns.
