In this clip, we hear audio recording from a service in remembrance of the 1990 Oka Crisis. Will Nicholls, former CKUT host of the show Indian Times, spoke during the service. He recounts his experience as host and the dark humor he used in order to survive the repercussion of the Oka Crisis. He explains the reasons for the end of the show as due to the unexpected response by some CKUT listeners along with the harsh realities of racism he experienced personally and as a reporter.
