Last week, our Producer, John Ironside met with Karen R Macintosh of to discuss her new venture of selling and donating cloth masks to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. While there, we also recorded a short piece about a peaceful demonstration she was planning with local small business owners who want to express their concerns to all levels of government. All concerned business owners in the area are welcome, and all COVID-19 related laws pertaining to social distancing etc. will be obeyed.
