When is a billboard not just a billboard? On trans rights, free speech, and a short-lived but very controversial sign.
On the second edition of A Second Look, Justin P. Goodrich welcomes Vancouver City Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung to discuss the short-lived but tumultuous “I Heart J.K. Rowling” billboard on Hastings Street in Vancouver. Up for a single day, it nevertheless dominated headlines – and discussion – long afterward.
His guest is Sarah Kirby-Yung, a first-time Vancouver City Councillor, former Vancouver Park Board Chair and Commissioner, and sometime Orca contributor.
Justin P. Goodrich is the Managing Partner at Alliance Public Affairs Group. He holds a Master of Laws and is a lecturer in public policy.
- The first episode of A Second Look is worth…well, a second look. Justin welcomed Emmy-nominated writer, director, and producer Judy Lewinson to discuss 2020’s Black Lives Matter protests.
- Justin describes his vision for what A Second Look is all about, why it matters, and what you can expect.
- Sarah Kirby-Yung has appeared on Orca podcasts before. On UnSpun 89, she joined Jody Vance to talk women in politics, Strathcona Park, and all things Vancouver municipal politics.
