Our foreign affairs correspondent, Lisa Daftari chats with BCN’s Jeannette Rocher about NY’s Governor refusing to resign despite sexual assault allegations…the significance of the Pope’s visit to Iraq…and President Biden extending the U.S’s state of emergency against Iran by another year.
After an internship with the CBC, Jeannette embarked on her journalism career by moving overseas to take a job on the island of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. While overseas she covered stories in Fiji, Guam and Japan including the 2011 tsunami that hit Japan and its surrounding islands. She covered a mass shooting, an Earth quake, the disappearance of two little girls, murder cases and other huge court cases. In 2013 she moved to Alberta where she covered the devastating floods of High River and Medicine Hat for CTV News. She then went on to produce and host Go! Southern Alberta for Shaw TV.
