With our world engulphed in one crisis after another, whether it’s a global pandemic, the climate emergency, system racism or massive wealth inequity, there’s no room for journalists to sit on the sidelines. We either want to solve these problems, or we’re complicit in their proliferation.

The Orchard takes what you’re hearing about in the news and looks at it through the lens of how these cascading crises manifest themselves at home and abroad.

My commentary, analysis and original reporting on Calgary and Alberta news goes out Wednesdays, and on Canadian and international news Fridays.
