Towards that purpose World Community created a “magazine” style website where community groups from the Comox Valley and beyond could share their information and media relevant to local social justice, environmental and democracy issues.

In the early days of NASA, when the Americans were in a moon race with the Russians, a conflict arose between NASA and the astronauts. The administration, with the urging of the engineers, did not want to let the astronauts have any internal control over the spacecraft. “Leave the driving to us.”
