Life has been pretty crazy this past week (it's only Wednesday!) so this post is delayed.
I went to the Walrus Glenbow Debate at the Maxbell Theatre last Thursday. The topic was Calgary's Cowboy Culture: Living Legacy or Just History?
Debating for Living Legacy was Joan Crockatt and Mercedes Stephenson.
(I didn't know these ladies prior to this debate, so for your info - Crockatt is a political journalist and writer who appears regularly on CTV, CBC and Sun News. Stephenson is a national television reporter covering Parliament Hill for CTV)
Debating for Just History was Chris Turner and Chima Nkemdirim
(I knew these guys prior to this debate, but here's info anyway - Turner is a bestselling author, and journalist whose article in the Walrus dealt with this debate topic. Nkemdirim was Nenshi's campaign manager and is now his chief of staff.)
