Whilst the final preparations were being made in Victoria, CBC Edmonton talked to Bill Werthmann, Hillary’s father, on their afternoon show Radio Active.

Or listen on the CBC website.
We’ve also now tracked down audio of the interview on All Points West hosted by Jo-Ann Roberts on CBC British Columbia, from the afternoon of Monday, May 6. Bill was joined by Chris Holt, Executive Co-Director of NEED2 in this interview on the CBC website.
(Note: In an earlier version of this post we had embedded audio players from the CBC. Due to an autoplay issue, we have decided to remove the embedded players, and now only have links to the two interviews.)
