On 7 January 2014, Terra Informa broadcast live from Edmonton’s City Hall to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our home station, CJSR 88.5 FM. Last week was Part One of that show. This week is the final act: Part Two with Linda Duncan. She’s Alberta’s sole NDP MP, and an environmental lawyer.

Linda Duncan on Legal Legacies

CJSR turns 30 this year, and Terra Informa has been around for over a decade of that. We’ve had our share of recurring guests over the years: a bicycle traffic reporter, a wildlife documentarian… even a garbage guy.

But, one of Alberta’s more famous politicians has also joined us many times on the show: Linda Duncan.

Linda is the Honorable Member of Parliament for Edmonton-Strathcona, and the only New Democrat MP in the province.

She’s also had a long career as a lawyer, founder of the Environmental Law Centre of Alberta, and active citizen helping shape Edmonton’s landscape.Formerly the NDP Environment Critic in the House of Commons until 2011, Linda Duncan currently the Official Opposition Critic for Western Economic Development.

She joined Terra Informa’s Chris Chang-Yen Phillips on our live show at Edmonton’s City Hall to talk about some of the legacy she’s tried to build in environmental issues in Canada, and the legacy today’s leaders are leaving for future generations.
