The Vancouver Courier columnist Mark Hasiuk discusses his work in the paper, livability in Vancouver, the Olympics, prostitution and human trafficking, and the sort of mail he gets from his readers, with Joseph Planta.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
Mark Hasiuk is on the line now. The Vancouver Courier columnist is a regular read of mine. He writes with a verve and clarity that’s refreshing. He’s been described by readers of his as a ‘right-wing blowhard,’ ‘insipid,’ ‘a joke,’ acting like ‘a petulant little boy,’ ‘with issues,’ ‘full of anger and rage.’ Read the Courier column Wednesdays, and on his website www.markhasiuk.com. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Mark Hasiuk; Good morning, Mr. Hasiuk.
