The indigenous peoples of the Columbia Kootenay area within British Columbia, known as the Ktunaxa are concerned about the pace of change. They are concerned about the environment and the wildlife. They want to protect the animals and their sacred areas and other places of importance. While recognizing growth and development is inevitable, they want to find a balance before its too late.

A musician's look at a neighbourhood full of bars and stages that mark the change in the culture of one of the stalwart communities of traditional East Coast music. We think of St. John's as a bastion for Celtic music and old folks songs but is there anyone left to play the songs preserved in harbours and haunts when they arrive in Sin Jawns? George Street has the gigs but where are the minstrels?
