No show this week, we’re taking the week off to enjoy some of the sunshine and hot weather that has finally decided to make an appearance here in Vancouver. We’ll be back with a brand spanking new show next week all about AAC. Until there, he’s an article teasing a future show topic….
This week we’re joined by Kim Kilpatrick of the Canadian Council of the Blind to talk about the program she helped found — the Get Together with Technology Program. Also, some news stories, a rousing debate over air travel, and Steve’s ongoing GST battle!
