Best of Halifax

Best Activist

Winners: Janet Connors, Rocky Jones, Paul Gailiunas, Jane Kansas (tie)

These names are probably familiar to you, but they’re definitely well-known to their enemies—the forces of evil and oppression. With this crew of activists on the job, the world will be a better place for all of us, which really makes them the best. Janet Connors is famous for her ongoing fight against the tainted blood system that killed her husband Randy, and gave her aids; Rocky Jones is the SuperCity civil rights lawyer, who csis has been nervous of since the ‘60s, when the security agency opened its Jones file; Paul Gailiunas helps put on free food events and crusades loudly against the tobacco industry, often backed up by his Calypso band Piggy; and Jane Kansas is a cbc radio reporter (and ckdu regular).
