On December 21st, CJMP will have completed our documentary as part of the Resonating Reconciliation Program through the National Community Radio Association.
The two Producers, Devin Pielle and Shelby George of Tla’Amin worked with CJMP volunteers Courtney Harrop, Emma Belle, Claudia Medina and Zoë Ludski to create “We Are Still Here”
This documentary has been produced as part of the Resonating Reconciliation project, which “engages community radio to help reconcile all Canadians with the history of Indian Residential Schools, to help build grassroots skills among community-based broadcasters in respectful reporting on the ongoing legacy of Indian Residential Schools, and provide a lasting record of survivors’ experiences.”
We would like to invite you to the share in the presentation of this radio documentary, with our community for the first time. We will celebrate the work by listening to a selection from the documentary, discussing it together, sharing music and then participating in a cedar brushing. Following the ceremony, a pot luck will take place, please bring a small dish if you are able and your drum if you have one!

PR Community Radio Society is excited to announce ReBOP, the Remote Broadcast Outreach Program , made possible by a grant $7,253 from the National Community Radio Association.
Don Mitchinson and Zoe Ludski are the leads on this project which aims to increase CJMP’s capacity to remote-broadcast from around the community, and include voices that are not usually heard.
This fall, CJMP programmers will be able to take their shows to the streets, parks, and community places. Darleen Sundin plans to re-launch “Hidden Treasures” from her home; its a popular call-in buy and sell show that she had to give up when she could not access the new station location.
