dorward whoville pink pigtailsDavid Dorward is my MLA and my friend. He is the real deal. I wish more politicians were like him-down-to-earth, fun, kind, and not full of himself. For the past 13 months, he has grown out his incredible mop of hair for the purpose of donating it to be turned into a wig for children who have lost their hair during chemotherapy treatments. Here’s a video of David’s haircut at École Gabrielle Roy. He first offers some words of advice to the students, and makes reference to the 2 students at the school who recently lost their father in the recent west end warehouse stabbings, noting that he and the principal agreed that although it was a time of sadness for the school, this could be a reason for much-needed celebration and joy. He even let me snip a pink lock off the back, as you will see in the video!

Best Bar None Edmonton Food Tour

“What the heck is Best Bar None, anyway?” That was my question when Dave Young invited me to attend a walking tour of 4 BBN accredited downtown Edmonton bars. At first, it seemed odd to invite a straight-edge guy to a series of bars, although it didn’t take long for
