    Co-founder of Gulf Island Community Radio dies

    We were all saddened to hear of the death last week of Radha Fournier. She was instrumental in the creation of the Gulf Islands Community Radio Society, establishing a vision to bring FM radio back to the Gulf Islands in a community owned manner. Radha established many of the initial processes to get the society off the ground and operational. She was the President of GICRS for three years and helped build a vision for FM radio on these islands. Despite having stepped away from this role, she was very supportive during the CRTC filing process. She will be missed.
