Audio 14b consists of the following recording:
Title: Bob Burkinshaw on CBC 690 - May 15. – 2003 Part 1
This is the first half of Bob Burkinshaw’s interview on the CBC radio program "BC Almanac." The interview begins with an analysis of church attendance and religion in BC and the Fraser Valley. Burkinshaw discusses the historic irreligiousness in British Columbia. Burkinshaw then proceeds to answer questions asked by various callers on a wide range of topics having to do with religion. He argues that there is a spiritual hunger in the province and people are searching for meaning. Burkinshaw briefly discusses cloning with one caller and the ambiguity of census data with another. They are joined by Reverend Koten Benson of the Lion’s Gate Buddhist priory in Vancouver. The recording is continued on Aud. 14a.
