W2 Morning Radio Project: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Girls and Women in Canada

Angela MacDougall will be cohosting the W2 Morning Radio Project this week on Tuesday and Wednesday. The program is broadcast on 102.7FM, from 7-8am, every weekday.

Angela has prepared a special report on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Girls and Women in Canada, and the program is produced by W2, in association with Rabble.ca. Angela works as the Executive Director of Battered Women's Support Services in Vancouver. The special radio report follows calls for a national inquiry, and a reactionary Winnipeg Sun editorial blaming Indigenous Peoples for this national emergency.   

Joining the program: 

  • Nahanni Fontaine, past director of justice-Southern Chiefs Organization (SCO), special adviser on Aboriginal women's issues to the province of Manitoba 
  • Sandra DeLaronde, executive director, Helen Betty Osborne Memorial Foundation
  • Beverley Jacobs, past president, Native Women's Association of Canada
  • Marlene George, chair, February 14th Women's Memorial March Committee - Downtown Eastside Vancouver
  • Bernadette Smith, Editor of the Toolkit for Families of Missing Persons
  • Suzanne Dzus, chair, Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Women -Calgary
  • Jessica Danforth, executive director, Native Youth Sexual Health 
  • Ellen Gabriel, past president, Quebec Women's Association Inc., candidate for Chief, Assembly of First Nations 

Please listen in 7-8 am PST 102.7FM or catch the shows streaming or afterwards via the archive.  Get involved in W2's flagship broadcasting platform by emailing radio@creativetechnology.org. W2 is currently recruiting for social media and associate producer roles.
