On today’s show (Tuesday, Nov. 21): A TransCanada pipeline leak in South Dakota seemingly didn’t impact Keystone XL’s approval, as it was approved yesterday by the state of Nebraska. Markham Hislop, Publisher of North American Energy News talks about what this means for energy projects and for politics here in Alberta and south of the border. We’ll also tackle allegations of harassment within the ranks of the City of Edmonton, sexual harassment and gender-neutral bathrooms in schools. At 10 o’clock, Craig Copeland, the Mayor of Cold Lake is in our studio to discuss the NDP pulling $10 million in funding for the Air Weapons Range. Then, at 11:05, Lindsay Shepherd, a graduate student and TA at Wilfrid Laurier University talks about her experience of revealing how her university has limited her right to exercise free speech in the classroom.
