Listen to Living at the Barricades.
This very special episode features three of the six performers in Heart of a Lake: Gord Downie, Tanis Rideout, and your Waterkeeper, Mark Mattson. (You will hear author Joseph Boyden's readings on the Moose River during an upcoming episode of Living at the Barricades.) Two of our performers, Andrea Nann and Brendan Wyatt, brought motion and beauty to the performance; these dancers graced the stage throughout the hour-long presentation. While you cannot see them on radio, they are an important part of our story: the determination to keep moving, the commitment to a swimmable, drinkable, fishable future must occur over, and over, and over again.
