Yukon coffee roaster reduces carbon footprint

Bean North Coffee Roasters knew reducing their environmental stamp wouldn't be easy. The company imports its beans from Central America and roasts them in the Yukon before shipping the finished product to customers around North America.

Bringing Almighty Voice and His Wife to the stage

6038906.jpgDaniel David Moses was ahead of his time.

He spent 10 years writing his play Almighty Voice And His Wife, and when it debuted in the early nineties, audiences weren't ready for it.

The play tackles issues of racism, alienation, and residential school syndrome.

A lot has changed since the play was first staged, and it has become a bona fide hit, a seminal work of Canadian theatre, according to many reviewers.

It is in Whitehorse as part of Nakai Theatre's Pivot Festival.

Derek Garza and P.J. Prudat are starring in the production at the Yukon Arts Centre.
