United Church Pension Investments

Rev. Sandra Morrison & Vernie Yocogan-Diano

This week Rev. Sandra Morrison and a visitor from the Philippines have been making a tour of various churches and community organizations talking about what's going on with the mining industry in the Philippines.

Vernie Yocogan-Diano is the guest speaker and she has come to talk about activism. People in her community are finding their lives, cultures and lands are threatened by international mining companies. Among those are some Canadian companies....one of those is a company in which the United Church of Canada has invested its pension money into. This is causing a very big controversy.

Reverend Sandra Morrison and Vernie Yocogan-Diano came into studio to explain more.
