  1. May I help you out, Ms. Robinson ? Your efforts are inspiring!

    I am currently on sabbatical, so I have some time to focus on things that I find very important.

    I live in downtown Calgary, I have many First Nation relatives and friends, and I have media skills I brought with me from NY.

    Please let me know if I might be of assistance.

  3. Love this story!
    Love the picture of Calgary, too. Can’t see an attribution. I don’t suppose it’s in the public domain? Is it available?
