Jill Karpick and Freida Whales Snag Dr. Bonnie Henry For Interview

Okanagan College’s Jill Karpick was instrumental in bringing the interview between Freida Whales and Dr. Bonny Henry to life.

A highlight of the summer for both Karpick and Whales was an interview with B.C.’s provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry. In the 6-minute segment, Whales dives into conversation with Henry, asking questions about drag-entertainment, her custom-made John Fluevog shoes, as well as Pride parades across the province.

“We may have to be physically distant for a while longer, but we can still be connected to each other,” Henry said in the interview. “I’ve been impressed with the imaginative things people have come up with [to stay connected].”
