Mr. Speaker, an official launch will occur this Friday in my riding of one of Canada's first volunteer based community Internet radio stations.
The Strathroy Community Resource Centre, with funding from human resources development, is co-operating with Fanshawe College and the United Way to set up Ethos Radio.
A new website and broadcast facility have been established with a mentoring program for 15 local youth participants. This is a unique achievement.
As the statement of principles developed for Ethos Radio says, community is not a place but an attitude of mind. It is a process, a flowing river and not a frozen structure. The important features of the community are its inclusiveness, commitment and consensus.
I congratulate the Strathroy Resource Centre for taking this initiative and enabling the youth of rural Ontario to access the world.
