Continuing our look into Canada's role in creating the refugee crisis in Central America Scott and Greg talk to two people on the ground in Honduras and Mexico.

First you will hear from Jen Moore. Jen was the Latin America coordinator for Mining Watch Canada, with years of work with communities affected by Canadian mining in Central America, and is now based in Mexico.
We apologize for the audio of Jen's interview. We tried to clean it up as best we could.

Then you will hear from Karen Spring. Karen is a Honduras-based coordinator of the Honduras Solidarity Network, with years of working with communities affected by Canadian mining, sweatshop, and tourism investment and on other issues prompting people to flee en masse.
Check out Karen's website where she writes about the situation in Honduras
