Interview: How to build a massive peace movement in Canada
Metta Spencer founded Peace Magazine in 1983, and the University of Toronto sociologist become Canada’s well-known publisher of news and interviews about the peace movement. Today, at 89, Metta has added podcasts to her coverage of the issues, and is a YouTube “influencer” through her seminal video interview series titled “Project Save the World.”
In this week’s episode, the first of a new series of daily YouTube programs, Metta sat down with me (Steve Staples) to talk about PeaceQuest’s ambitions and contribution to the peace movement.
What resulted was a fascinating, sometimes contradictory, discussion of political and organizing strategies to build a stronger, more impactful peace movement in Canada.
