    Edmonton Police Chief Dale McFee | Protests, Policing, and Progress

    Edmonton Police Chief Dale McFee | Protests, Policing, and Progress

    On February 1, 2019, Dale McFee was sworn in as Edmonton’s 23rd Chief of Police for the Edmonton Police Service. He spent 26 years as a police officer in Prince Albert and 9 years as their Chief of Police. He also spent 6 years as the Deputy Minister of Corrections and Policing in the Ministry of Justice for the Saskatchewan government. From 2011 to 2014 he served as President and Past President of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police. He has previously held the positions of President of the Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police, President of the Saskatchewan Federation of Police Officers, and Director of the Canadian Police Association.
    Chief McFee and I talk about the killing of George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, Edmonton’s vulnerable population, social work, data analysis, leadership and culture, plus so much more. His experience, expertise, and ancillary training give him a great perspective to discuss these issues in a dispassionate and levelheaded way.

    Evan Gallant | A Conversation About Alcohol and Drugs

    Evan Gallant | A Conversation About Alcohol and Drugs

    My guest today is Evan Gallant. Evan’s main gig is marketing, but he is also big in the Edmonton charity scene, working as the Community Director for the Urban Spirits Rotary Club and co-founding HEALYEG, an Edmonton-based non-profit. Evan’s an incredibly social guy. He’s funny, gregarious, and is always the life of the life of the party out in the Edmonton bar scene. However, Evan reached out to me to shed some light on the darker side of this scene. Evan opened up about his mental health struggles, his drug and alcohol abuse, and about it all came crashing down on him last year. Countless people struggle with these issues. Evan and I both know this will resonate with people, and we hope it helps.
