Project Canary

By Project Canary

Canaries in the coal mine warns us of danger we are blind to. This podcast aims to illuminate the darkness for Canadians.

Co-hosted by two Canadian immunocompromised Moms with background in advocacy, clinical research, education, teaching, and training. Mel and Crystal view knowledge translation of evidence-supported information as a necessity for community empowerment. They bring research findings, clinical data, expert guests, and a penchant for swearing to the BCPoli pandemic response. Mel and Crystal also delve into other relevant concerns to Western Canada politics.
