The Boom Booms are a Vancouver-based six-piece indie band whose music is a mash-up of pop, hip-hop, reggae, soul, and funk with an energetic live performance and incredible stage presence. A summer highlight for East Vancouver residents, the band’s “Boom Boom Block Party” raised over $12,000 for EYA (Environmental Youth Alliance), CLICK (Contributing to Lives of Inner City Youth), the Bavubuka hip-hop outreach for kids in Uganda, and Up With Hope – an organization dedicated to improving the living conditions in the slums of Nairobi.

Baba Brinkman lives and works as a rap artist and playwright in New York City. To date, Baba has written and co-written five hip-hop theatre shows, including The Canterbury Tales Remixed, The Rap Guide to Evolution, and The Rebel Cell. An award-winning artist, Baba Brinkman has entertained thousands of people with his performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Joyce Murray’s campaign for Leadership of the Liberal Party is bringing Canadians together under the banner of cooperation. Joyce is the only candidate advocating a one-time pact with the Green Party and NDP to remove Stephen Harper from power as a way towards electoral reform in Canada. Joyce Murray also stands for the legalization and taxation of cannabis, strong action on climate change, and higher representation of women in public appointments. It’s about time a politician came forward with bold proposals that Canadians can be proud of. David Suzuki recently endorsed Murray for leader and sent the following message: “I urge everyone who is concerned about democracy, the environment, and social justice to take part in this (leadership) selection process.”
