About the Chat

Each week covers different issues, and aspects of life and community, focusing on Greater Victoria, BC Canada. Sometimes the topics and questions are far ranging such as the role of social media in politics, or as direct as what wine goes best with a chicken BBQ, but we always strive to make it relevant to the local community, and have guests relevant to the topics.

#YYJchat is every Tuesday, 7:30pm to 8:30pm PST
