Sydney Sharpe is a journalist, anthropologist, and author or co-author of eight books. Her latest, with Don Braid, is Notley Nation: How Alberta’s Political Upheaval Swept the Country. Sydney was a tenured professor, and then a senior columnist for the Calgary Herald and Calgary Bureau Chief for the Financial Post. She has written for numerous magazines, newspapers, and anthologies on such topics as provincial and federal politics; energy and environment; and women and politics. Sydney earned a B.A. cum laude in  Anthropology from the U of A, and an M.A. in Anthropology from McGill University. Instead of completing a dissertation for her Ph.D., Sydney wrote the best-selling book, The Gilded Ghetto: Women and Political Power in Canada.
Don Braid has been a political reporter and columnist for more than forty years while based in Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton, and Calgary, and several other Ontario cities. He has reported from Africa, Europe, Russia, and written on every Alberta and federal government since the days of the original Trudeau. With Sydney Sharpe, he co-wrote three books on politics.  Over his career he has done a great deal of TV and radio work, but now confines his efforts to Calgary Herald video commentary. He holds a B.A. in Honours English and History and an M.A. in History, both from McMaster University, and did further studies in history at the University of Virginia.

Please consider donating $25 if you would have liked to attend this fundraiser, but are unable due to other commitments.
