7:35: Interview w/ Andrea Houston & Jonathan Goldsbie:

  • Andrea is in Montreal this weekend as a featured speaker at the 2012 Humanist Canada Conference, being held at the Hilton Bonaventure. The theme of this year’s conference is Sex and Secularism and that’s a topic on which Andrea is uniquely qualified to speak. Her tireless reporting in Xtra on the battle to force the Ontario Catholic School Boards to allow Gay-Straight Alliances in their schools has earned Andrea broad acclaim and played a part in her being named Honoured Dyke in this years Dyke March, part of the massive Toronto Pride event. She’ll be sharing the stage this weekend with the likes of Sue Johanson and Leanne Iskander, another prominent figure in the GSA fight.
  • Jonathan Goldsbie is a Toronto-based writer who has been alternately described as the resident communist at the National Post, the king of Toronto political tweeting, several things I can’t repeat, but most appropriately he’s an advocate for public space issues and a contributor to Spacing Magazine, Xtra, Torontoist, and The Grid, among others.
