CBC Radio One 99.1FM is proud to support the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC) in honouring award-winning scientist, broadcaster, and one of the world's greatest environmentalists, Dr. David Suzuki. Dr. Suzuki will receive the JCCC's prestigious Sakura Award at a gala on April 9 hosted by Mary Ito, from CBC Radio One 99.1 FM's Fresh Air.
Thank you for joining us at the screening of the documentary Force of Nature, on March 24th at JCCC. This was followed by a fireside chat with director Sturla Gunnarsson and was hosted by Mary Wiens, from Metro Morning on CBC Radio One 99.1 FM. All proceeds from the screening will go to Japan disaster relief.
And don't forget! Come out to see a special David Suzuki exhibit featuring images from the 50th Anniversary of CBC's The Nature of Things and from CBC's archives at JCCC. This unique exhibit closes April 9.
