Good Morning Canada

We aim to raise awareness on topical issues, health, lifestyle, art, literature, socio-economic conditions and philosophical viewpoints to name a few. Our focus is to traverse the tangent route and visualize the diametrically opposite by exploring untrodden cognitive paths. The contextual framework of our discussions will resonate powerfully with a wider global audience due to the interchange of contemporary discourse and the connectivity of diverse belief systems. To achieve this requires a sense of balance, a mirrored connection between the two parts. We are intertwined with our audience, one cannot exist without the other. The show will re-form and reshape fragmented narratives by offering content that alters one’s existing scope of vision. Our goal is to create a forum for you to rethink mainstream discourse by balancing linkages between source and audience. We hope to inspire a global listening audience and speak directly to the untapped potential within us all.
