Liner Notes:

100,000 Voices* Fundraiser – written for Alexandra Morton to get 100,000 voices speaking up to stop fish farms and to help Don Staniford raise $100,000 to defend himself from a Fish Farm SLAPP suit.

Shuswap Salmon Song – rewritten from my original “Adams River” song dedicated to Alex Morton.

Salmon are Sacred – the story of Alexandra Morton’s “Get Out Migration” that saw five thousand people march out to Victoria’s Legislature to protest Fish Farms.

Bread and Roses: based on a 1910 poem/song to protest working conditions in US textile mills.

Child: During Canada’s genocide against First Nation’s, I was shocked! to learn that children were forced into residential schools and beaten for speaking their native language.  Inspired by the Splatsin Language Program where Grandmother’s speak their native language with small children, I wrote this song.

Timothy DeChristopher grew up in the shadow of mountain top removal. Following his mother’s lifetime of protest against coal mining, Tim eventually interrupted the illegal sale of public land for the benefit of Coal Corporations. This song tells that story.

Merchants of Death: Death by carbon.

High-De-High: That’s all I’m going to say about that!

We used to…: Canadians live with Globalized Government to the demise of home and community.

NO-NO-NO: Protesting the Harper Government’s tar sands, pipelines and tankers plan.

O Canada: Inspired by Canada’s National Anthem, I wrote the last verse the day Jack Layton died and dedicated it to him. Almost a year later I realized it held a message for the Harper Government so we made it into a video.
