Scope and content

Audio 87a consists of the following recording:
Title: Barrie McMaster – “Integrity in the Media: Does it Exist?”
Someone performs a variety of songs, imitating various artists including Neil Diamond and the Hollies. Between songs, he addresses the audience, asking the question "what has your time?" At [7:24] a new recording, possibly unrelated, cuts in; an unidentified speaker - possibly Lloyd Mackey - refers to himself as a former editor of the Chilliwack Progress. He references his experience as a journalist in Victoria and reflects on meeting Barrie McMaster, and learning that McMaster was also a Christian. Mackey introduces the former BCIT instructor, now Vice President of Operations of the company that owns Fraser Valley Radio and Star FM. McMaster states his intention to address the conference theme: integrity in media. He explores what causes those in the media to act as they do. He attempts to define integrity. He discusses the ethical dilemmas faced by those in the media. He argues that as Christians, people need to be open to God’s will. He references the apostle Paul and asks his audience to look at their hearts.
Audio 87b consists of the following recording:
Title: Barrie McMaster – “Integrity in Media: Does it Exist?” / Unknown Speaker – “Discussion”
This is a continuation from Aud. 87a. McMaster concludes by emphasizing that Christians in the media need to work with a completeness of purpose and act with integrity. At [1:32] an unidentified speaker - possibly a moderator - starts discussing the small ways God helps us to make change. He briefly reflects on what several speakers have shared and leads the group in a follow-up discussion. Some of the participants' comments are barely audible, as they are not miked.
