I’m a lawyer with over 30 years of experience, primarily in petrochemicals, pipelines, oil and natural gas. I’ve worked in Canada and the US on projects located in North America, Britain, Europe and Asia.
My focus is provincial politics, but occasionally I’ll dive into other arenas.
I’ve written for Alberta Views, CBC The Road Ahead, the Edmonton Journal and some online publications. My posts have been reprinted in the Huffington Post, Rabble and other newspapers. I’ve appeared on CBC Radio, the Ryan Jespersen Show and the Danielle Smith Show, (when she still had one) as well as panels for CTV Primetime and Wordfest where I had the honour of interviewing the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Beverley McLachlin.
The Soapbox received a Canadian Law Blog Award (affectionately known as a Clawbie) in 2013 and was nominated again in 2020. I received the PIA Public Interest Award for Southern Alberta in 2016.
I post on Sundays and welcome comments as long as they’re respectful and add to the conversation.
Some miscellaneous personal stuff: I enjoy judging moots and debates, I’m a fan of Netflix, Acorn, well, all streaming services. A while ago Mr Soapbox and I went on our dream vacation–a trip on the Orient Express. Very cool.
