Latin Waves covers local/national and international issues making those critical political connections, we bring our listeners in-depth coverage of issues with a focus on the history of an issue and what that history means for us today and most importantly what we can do to move society forward in a healthy way.



In short our show is focused on building community across borders, positive social change has only come through communities of interest working together. Latin Waves wants to mediate this change and create a more just equalitarian society. Many citizens are jaded and have given up on change which shows in low voter turnout, what is needed is a new political imagination



We are non corporate which means we can cover any story we wish unfiltered and uncensored and are beholden only to the public interest. Our society is in crisis, we have a financial, environmental and social meltdown with unresponsive governments.



Another World is possible and that depends on us working together.

    Yves Engler on Canadian foreign policy NAFTA and citizens role in change

    Yves Engler (born 1979) is a Montreal writer and political activist. In addition to seven published books, Engler’s writings have appeared in the alternative press and in mainstream publications such as The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Ottawa Citizen and Ecologist. His The Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy book was on a short list for the Quebec Writers’ Federation Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-Fiction along with two other books.



    Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to Yves about Canadian foreign policy and the hypocrisy of our government putting sanctions on countries like Venezuela while excusing gross human rights violations in the coup governments of Honduras and Haiti, how Canadians should be paying attention to agreements like NAFTA and how those trade agreements are undemocratic and give corporations to much power over our lives, environment and working conditions.



    How as progressive we should use our independent judgement on agreements like NAFTA and not just support them because Trump doesn’t like them.
