Mid-summer's fun on Roadkill Radio

Log onto Roadkill Radio and join Terry O’Neill and guest co-host Ron Gray tonight from

7:30-9:30 p.m. Pacific for another newsy and provocation edition of Roadkill Radio. We’ll begin by discussing the alarming outbreak of anti-child literature and journalism in recent weeks—everything from the cover story of Maclean’s to a full page-three feature in the National Post. All this at a time when Canada's birthrate is already plunging! What’s behind the move to de-stigmatize childlessness among married couples and, moreover, to encourage them not to have children? We’ll find out by talking with David Quist, executive director of the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada.

Next up, we’ll present another installment of Tales from Van-Kooker. Political blogger Jonathon Narvey will help us explore the thinking behind city council’s recent decision to try to overturn more than 1,000 bylaw-infraction tickets handed out by city police in the notorious Downtown Eastside.

Finally, we’ll conduct an in-depth interview with Dr. Walter Block, the former chief economist for the Fraser Institute, current Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Chair in Economics and Professor of Economics at Loyala University New Orleans, Senior Fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and self-described “libertarian/anarcho-capitalist philosopher.” The subject: Libertarianism: Is it conservatism’s future? This is one you’ll not want to miss!

All this plus: an update into our Freedom-of-Information efforts with the federal Human Rights Commission, and we'll name our Roadkill Radio Warrior of the Week too. Join us tonight at 7:30 p.m. Pacific.
