What does it mean to be an Albertan? When you think of a “typical” Albertan, do you imagine a rancher? A rigger? A cowboy? A construction worker? How do we define, and redefine, what it means to be of this place? In part one of Alberta Unbound, host Paula Simons puts those provocative questions to five diverse panelists: Dr. Jared Wesley, a political scientist from the University of Alberta, Shannon Stubbs, the Conservative MP from the riding of Lakeland, in northeastern Alberta, Dr. Diana Steinhauer, the president of Yellowhead Tribal College and an elder from the Saddle Lake Cree Nation, Omar Mouaellem, an award-winning journalist, and author and former Alberta provincial cabinet minister Doug Griffiths.
