I’m a lawyer with 26 years of experience in petrochemicals, pipelines, oil and natural gas. I’ve worked in Canada and the US on projects located in North America, Europe and Asia.
I was delighted when Alberta freed itself from one-party rule in 2015 but am concerned we’re now heading into the worst kind of populism, provincially and federally.
I post on Sundays unless something huge happens midweek. I welcome comments as long as they’re respectful and add to the conversation.
My posts have appeared in the Huffington Post and Rabble and have been reprinted in Alberta Views and other newspapers. I do the occasional radio interview with CBC and Danielle Smith’s News Talk 770 and participate in panel discussions like the Wordfest/Alberta Views “deep dive” into politics. I’ve appeared on CTV Primetime and am a contributor to CBC’s The Road Ahead.
The Soapbox received a Canadian Law Blog Award (affectionately known as a Clawbie) in 2013 and was the recipient of the PIA Public Interest Award for Southern Alberta in 2016.

Some miscellaneous personal stuff: I enjoy judging moots and debates, I’m a fan of Netflix and Britbox and a while ago Mr Soapbox and I went on our dream vacation–a trip on the Orient Express. Very cool.
