Comments:
Just heard Robin and I'm happy to report that he did very well - he was permitted more or less free rein to describe the whole sorry mess and he did it with style - every statement supported by his extensive knowledge of the facts.

I hope many British Columbians had the opportunity to listen.
 
I enjoyed it too, Robin. You were very clear in defining the main parameters of a very broad (and growing daily) topic. I daresay that the host could have been less biased so as to appeal to a broader range of listeners. You could have made your points without his zealous editorializing. I suspect that that he will learn to moderate his feelings/thoughts in time. Thank you BC Mary for bringing this to our attention.
 
I agree with the interviewer, who said,he wished he had allowed Robin a full hour. I think, Robin was just hitting his stride when his half hour was up. Even so,well done Robin.
 
Those folks have a podcast?

.
 
seems that dave basi caused attention to all of this.thank you dave!
 
Hello?
 
In four days we'll know the real intentions of why CN Rail purchased BC Rail from the Government of British Columbia for a Billion Dollars.
