J-Hock of AHA MEDIA talks about Bill 18 – Assistance to Shelter Act in Vancouver Downtown Eastside

Read about Bill 18 – Assistance to Shelter Act – where the Homeless get picked up by Police to go into shelters!

http://www.leg.bc.ca/39th1st/1st_read/gov18-1.htm

According to

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Opponents of the province’s new ‘Assistance to Shelter Act’ are holding a rally today in the Downtown Eastside, intensifying the fight over what to do about Vancouver’s homeless during the Olympic Games.

Opponents call it the “Olympic Kidnapping Act’, saying the act is unconstitutional.  The province maintains it is simply trying to help people who cant, or wont, help themselves.  Some claim the homeless are being chased out of the city altogether before February 2010.  A drop-in centre in Kelowna is reporting a 20 per cent increase in traffic, with many of the new clients saying they are from Vancouver.

AHA MEDIA attended an exclusive meet-and-greet with Vancouver Canucks legend Trevor Linden, to coincide with the launch of the LG Concierge Advantage, a new digital signage program specially design for the Canadian retailers at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver

“The LG Concierge Advantage combines not only LG’s cutting-edge display technology but customized solutions for leasing, servicing and financing—a true team effort. We’d love to give you a sneak peek at some of this technology and then get an autograph and have your picture taken with Trevor, who is on-hand to help celebrate the team approach that LG Concierge Advantage embodies. The BC Hospitality Expo trade show opens at noon on the day of this event so our meet-and-greet with Trevor will be the perfect lead-in to your 2009 Expo experience.”

AHA MEDIA is very excited to attend an exclusive meet and greet with Vancouver Canucks Legend Trevor Linden with the launch of LG Concierge Advantage!

Trevor Linden

Trevor Linden’s career as an NHL hockey player and humanitarian has been remarkable. Trevor frequently visits B.C.’s Children’s Hospital and is a supporter and spokesperson for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Cancer Society Lottery of Hope, and Canuck Place, a hospice for terminally ill children. Linden has started a program for underprivileged children called Trevor’s Captain’s Crew, which brings children by limousine to a free hockey game complete with a luxury suite at GM Place. In 1997, he was awarded the King Clancy Trophy for his leadership role and off-ice humanitarian contributions, and the Gillette World Champion Award as the Canadian athlete who best exemplifies excellence in sports and compassion and humanitarianism off the ice.

LG Electronics would like to invite you to attend an exclusive meet-and-greet with Vancouver Canucks legend Trevor Linden, to coincide with the launch of the LG Concierge Advantage, a new digital signage program specially design for the Canadian retailers.

Remembrance Day‏

Hi April

I saw your video on Youtube of Remembrance Day in Vancouver and I was wondering if you’d mind us using it for Your World News, which is a BBC World short programme that goes out tomorrow. I’m putting together a small package on Remembrance Day and was wondering if you’d mind. We’d credit your name.

Also just to double check, you did take them yourself?

And lastly, if Remembrance has a special meaning to you, please email me a phone number and I’ll try and talk to you if you’re happy for me to.

Thanks a lot,

Silvia

AHA MEDIA is very happy to celebrate its First Birthday and First year Anniversary online on Wednesday November 11, 2009 !!! 🙂

Birthday5Birthday10 champagne

AHA MEDIA has come a long way in one year when we ( April Smith, Hendrik Beune and Al Tkatch) formed AHA MEDIA ( using the first letter of our first names) and decided last year to have our very own site online!

AHA MEDIA does mobile new media/social media reporting and event documentation for all communities in Vancouver and Downtown Eastside. We have even been invited to the cities of Whistler and Victoria to do mobile media and livestreaming.

With lessons learned from the Fearless City Mobile project from W2 Community Media Arts Centre http://www.creativetechnology.org, we are proud to continue to grow everyday and help support/report in all our neighborhoods from social justice issues to social media events!

AHA MEDIA enjoys providing an independent and alternative perspective to general media views. Through our new media devices and cameraphones, we hope to be a news resource for everyone who is interested in us.

Over the year AHA MEDIA has grown to include 11 people affiliated with AHA MEDIA – nearly all  live and work in the Vancouver Downtown Eastside.

We are honored to have the Aboriginal/Native Culture perspectives from our Aboriginal  reporters – Brody Benson, Alvin Clayton, Clyde Wright

Other fantastic members of AHA MEDIA are :

Peter Davies – Photographer

Ken Glofcheskie – Sports and Social Justice

J-Hock – Housing and Economic Issues

Derrick Simms – Tech Support

Alain Assaily –  Real Journalist!

AHA MEDIA enjoys peer training, participating and engaging in our communities to produce content for everyone to see and hear!

Among our many news/events coverage,  our next ongoing project is documenting and archiving events leading up to and during the 2010 Winter Olympics. We will report on all perspectives as well as hearing the personal stories of folks in our neighborhoods.

Two future projects AHA MEDIA will be involved  in are:

1) Documenting the Poverty Olympics – a satirical view of the Games put on by CCAP who are concerned about economic, housing and social justice issues of the Downtown Eastside

2) Participating in Fearless City’s CODE Live and Bright Lights editions – the Cultural Olympiad Digital Edition, part of the 2010 Winter Olympics celebrations. The projects will include streaming videos created by local residents and shown on giant screens at W2, a community media arts centre opening this winter as part of the Woodward’s development.

AHA MEDIA is proud to be part of  ongoing year long documentary filming process for a movie called With Glowing Hearts – http://www.vimeo.com/5401993

AHA MEDIA is still learning and growing everyday!  We humbly thank EVERYONE who has supported us, been our mentor and most importantly been our friend!

We couldn’t have done it without you! 🙂
