139. Lindsay Wilson - Alberta Proud
Alberta Proud is a grassroots advocacy group, fighting for every day, hardworking Albertans and our energy sector. We stand up to out-of-touch, elitist politicians and celebrities who get in the way of our prosperity with their anti-business, anti-resource ideologies. We are proud of this province and the people who make it all happen. We believe Alberta has a distinct identity, based on our western roots and entrepreneurial spirit, and our job is to be the voice for the countless Albertans who want to protect and preserve our identity and way of life. Through our powerful social network that reaches millions each week, we run campaigns that get Albertans riled up and grab the attention of those who make the decisions that impact our lives and livelihoods. Recent campaigns include telling Ottawa to back down from trying to put surgeon general-style warning labels on our ground beef and pork; pushing for a better deal for Alberta and taking the stand that as long as Quebec blocks our pipelines and expropriates our companies, it’s time to turn off the trade taps; and telling the Trudeau government to back off our farmers with their ridiculous plans to reduce nitrogen emissions by 30% by 2030, equating to a fertilizer reduction for our ag sector that will result in a crop supply shortage and massive financial consequences for that sector. We stand with our farmers/ranchers, our resource sector workers and all Albertans who love this province the way we do. Join us on all social media platforms, including our Facebook following of over 210,000 people who aren’t afraid to get loud about being Alberta Proud! ---------------------------------------------------------- Lindsay Wilson A journalist by trade, Lindsay is an award-winning reporter who spent a decade working in Alberta weekly newspapers before embracing her passion for politics and switching gears. After spending two years on the Calgary mayoral campaign with Jeromy Farkas, Lindsay missed the more objective lens of journalism and has found a middle ground with her role as president and spokesperson of Alberta Proud, part of the Canada Strong & Proud network. With one of the largest social media followings in the province, Alberta Proud is a grassroots advocacy group that stands up for everyday Albertans and supports ideals and political candidates who are pro-business and pro-resource. Her goal is to elevate Alberta Proud to doing more reporter-style videos that tell the incredible story of Albertans and the political landscape that impacts them. She credits her passion for storytelling to her mentor, the late Alberta newspaper mogul Jack Tennant, and countless hours in coffee shops conducting interviews. Her love of politics began with her own late mother’s story as a refugee from communism in Eastern Europe in the 60s. Through her years in newspapers, Lindsay emceed and moderated political events and debates and covered all three levels of elections, as well as First Nations elections in Stoney Nakoda. Growing up on a cattle ranch, Lindsay has also spent many years running a construction company and is a mother of three. Lindsay is a graduate of the Mount Royal post-grad journalism program with an English/Communications undergraduate degree from the University of Calgary.

133. Dany Horovitz - A Crash Course in Releasing Music
Dany Horovitz is a Canadian singer-songwriter known for delighting audiences with his memorable melodies and beautiful storytelling through vivid lyrics. Each of the singles off of Dany’s debut album, Free Times, received radio play across Canada, the United States, Europe, and Australia. His single Free Tonight earned him Top 20 honours on Cashbox Radio. Dany was born to a middle-class Jewish family in Montreal and outside Toronto. His grandfather owned a record store and Dany’s childhood was mostly spent listening to old records and dreaming of making music. His main inspirations were the bands and singer-songwriters of the 1960s and 70s. He joined the school choir as a way to impress girls. Though it did not work very well, he learned a lot about performing. Dany picked up the guitar at 14 and started writing songs at 16. At 17, he enrolled in McGill University as an English Literature major, hoping to follow in the footsteps of his hero Leonard Cohen. He released his first studio album in 202, a collection of personal favourites. Dany’s music is infused with modern takes on familiar sounds: melodic guitar and piano chords, popping bass licks, and toe-tapping percussion. His lyrics are stories of love, loss and life, drawing inspiration from ancient poets, modern philosophers, and personal experiences. But don’t be mistaken, his music is neither academic nor pedantic: first and foremost, Dany writes songs to be enjoyed. He hopes you enjoy them too.

111. Dr. McCullough & John Leak - The Courage to Rise Up
Dr. McCullough: Dr. McCullough is an internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist who has been a leader in the medical response to COVID-19. In August of 2020 he published “Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection” in the American Journal of Medicine. This paper presented the first synthesis of sequenced multidrug treatment of ambulatory patients infected with the virus, and was subsequently updated in Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine. He has published dozens of peer-reviewed papers on the infection, and has commented extensively on the medical response in The Hill, America Out Loud, ABC, Fox News, OAN, Newsmax, Victory Channel, and a multitude of independent media outlets. He has testified on several occasions in the U.S. Senate and before several State Senate and Congressional Committees. John Leake: John Leake studied history and philosophy with Sir Roger Scruton at Boston University. He then went to Vienna, Austria on a graduate school scholarship and ended up living in the city for over a decade, working as a freelance writer and translator.  His first book, Entering Hades: The Double Life of a Serial Killer (Sarah Crichton Books, FSG) was a New York Times Sunday Book Review “Editors’ Choice,” a Men’s Vogue “Best Book of 2007,” and the inspiration of The Infernal Comedy, starring John Malkovich. When SARS-CoV-2 arrived, he perceived that the official policy response was illogical at best, and possibly criminal. He found it especially suspicious how quickly public health officials dismissed repurposed early treatments such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. In November of 2020, he watched a video of Dr. McCullough’s US Senate testimony about early treatment. He sensed from this performance that Dr. McCullough was likely to lead the way in developing a more rational and humane response to the crisis.

Alicia Erickson was crowned Miss Rodeo Canada 2020 at the Canadian Finals Rodeo on November 1st, 2019. She will continue on in 2021 as the first ever Miss Rodeo Canada to serve a two year rein. The 25 year-old from Trochu, Alberta has graduated College with her Justice Studies Diploma, specializing in Youth, and will continue her education to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work. Seeing the influence of growth, knowledge, and positivity she could impart in youth, truly set her on the path of becoming a professional in the field. Alicia has an ultimate goal of developing specific mental health and relations programs, to implement in grade school settings. Her passion for educating youth has always been apparent through many hours of volunteer work that led to being a horse-back riding instructor, skating coach, and youth programming facilitator. Alicia finds so much joy in music, and has been honoured to sing the Canadian National Anthem on horse-back at various rodeos across Canada and the United States of America. In her spare time, she enjoys playing the guitar, barrel racing, and helping out on the ranch. The authentic cowboy lifestyle, and the influencers within it, are what shaped Erickson to be the person she is today. For that, not only does she truly value western heritage and rodeo, but wants to continue to pass down the traditional traits of integrity, hard work, and dedication. While she didn’t inherit this lifestyle, Alicia chose to live by it and will continue to do so by being a contributing member to the western way of life.

82. Reg Porter - A Man and His Garden
Reg Porter is an Islander who has devoted a significant part of his life to the study and preservation of Prince Edward Island heritage, especially its architecture. His childhood was spent in Tignish with his grandparents, where he received his early education. He then attended high school in Montreal and began his university studies with the Jesuits at Loyola College. He continued his education at Mount Allison University where he took degrees in Classical Civilisation and Education. He became Librarian and Director of the Resource Centre at Tantramar Regional High School in Sackville New Brunswick for eight years. During that time he introduced and taught the equivalent of a first-year university course in the History of Art. In 1979 he was invited by Mount Allison University to become Research Associate at the Centre for Canadian Studies, and Lecturer in Education, teaching courses in Social Studies Methodology and Audio-Visual Theory and Practice. He also began research projects in local historical topography. He returned to PEI in 1982 and until 1988 worked at the Heritage Foundation (now the PEI Museum) as Curator of Exhibits and Public Programmes. In 1989 he became self-employed as a Heritage Consultant and spent the next ten years working in museum planning, archaeological survey, and historic building restoration. From 1987-97, he was also a Sessional Lecturer at the University of Prince Edward Island, teaching courses in Art History. In 2000, in poor health, he retired to Belle River where he lives, with his cats, in a late Victorian farmhouse, which was restored and filled with the happy and inspiring accumulations of a lifetime. He planned and constructed an enclosed formal garden – a hortus conclusus – whose geometry comforts him. In the past twenty years he has enjoyed going out to give public lectures and trying to complete several manuscript projects on Island Heritage. For a number of years, he wrote about a dozen articles for RED Magazine and produced substantial manuscripts about various aspects of Island architecture. His most recent project – which he hopes will bring him to the limits of his life – is a heritage blog where he recreates the major lectures, he gave during the past fifty years. He believes that the ultimate sweetness of living is sharing one’s passions with others.

70. Rylan Whalen - The Disenchantment of Modern Music
Rylan Whalen was born in Burlington Ontario, January 9th 1995. In his early years, Whalen was clearly disenchanted with the music his peers were embracing. Therefore, he took it upon himself to dive deep into the sounds that truly moved his soul. His thirst for music landed him exploring a vast variety of those before him, from the 60s and 70s, classical and soul. Whether in his parent’s record collection or the infinite library of the internet. By the end of high school, he had a need to absorb every documentary regarding these mythical records, and bands he could find. Being captivated by the words of groups far his senior, the young writer developed a style of his own. Paying tribute to those he was moulded by, yet always concocting his own original, modern and honest sound. Searching for truth, yearning for the divine, otherworldly energy music can give back. Whalen left his family, friends and country to join Danny down south. Allowing for vast expansion within their musical skills, influences and counterparts. Such a risky and courageous choice allowed the then boys, to embark on a journey of ridiculous proportions. Defining their friendship, sound and journey. Finding himself back home, nearly 5 years later, it can be very well said that this man breathes melody. His lyricism and stylistic approaches to his singing is on full display. He continues searching for a way to put life into words, and further connect with all and everyone around him.

67. Keith Matthew - Canada's Original Sin
Keith Matthew is a member of the Simpcw First Nation and is a former chief of the Simpcw First Nation. He served for five years as chief and five years as Councilor up until December 2010. As a Councilor and Chief with his community he was responsible for economic development and was instrumental developing a business relationship with Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing and helped negotiate ownership in a $7 million heli-skiing lodge. He was the chief negotiator with Kinder Morgan Canada and Canadian Hydro Developers and delivered impact benefit agreements to his community with those companies. He also led discussions on a forest and range agreement that provides fibre and resources for the Simpcw First Nation and its legal entities. More importantly these agreements have provided employment and training opportunities in major projects that the community members wouldn’t normally have an opportunity to compete for and work with companies that were formerly beyond their capacity. As chief he also was responsible for negotiations but also oversaw the successful delivery of the impact benefit agreements referendum and benefits to his community. In order to take advantage of the opportunities there was also the creation of Simpcw Resources Group Ltd. and the creation of Simpcw Heritage Trust to manage own source revenues into the future for the upcoming generations of Simpcw youth and their grandchildren. This legal instrument will allow the building of wealth for the children of our community well into the future. The vision to create opportunities for Simpcw First Nation was understanding the Haida and Taku River Supreme Court of Canada decisions on the duty to consult First Nations communities. Shuswap Nation Tribal Council was instrumental in helping draft consultation and accommodation policies with the assistance of the West Coast Environmental Law. The building block for this was started with a consultation and accommodation framework that was passed by a majority of the Simpcw membership in a community referendum. Additional pieces to this policy framework were later developed with a map of the traditional territory and a heritage and culture policy addendum. Currently Mr. Matthew is serving on the following committees as volunteer: President of the Community Futures Development Corporation for Central Interior First Nations; President of Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers; Director of the Simpcw Health Board President for the National Aboriginal Energy and Power Association; Director for the Tulo Centre of Indigenous Economics, Thompson Rivers University. He has his own company Seklep Business Services and works with First Nations’ communities to negotiate agreements with companies that require certainty of tenure from major projects on unceded traditional territory. As well he has two joint venture companies and is a principal with both Skeetch Arrowhead Contracting Ltd. and Skowtum Services Ltd. He is also one of the principals of Dynamic Microgrids and looks forward to helping First Nations communities develop their own renewable sources of energy and being partners with Canada in reducing greenhouse gases. He was awarded his Certified Aboriginal Economic Developer certification by the Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers at a ceremony in Winnipeg at their annual general meeting in 2013. He also successfully completed BCIT’s Associate Certificate, Venture Program, in 2012.

64. Danny Lopez - A Warrior, Not a Victim
Founding members Danny Lopez and Rylan Whalen originally met their first year of high school. In the predictable suburbs of Burlington, Ontario is where they swiftly began a musical relationship. Harm & Ease was officially formed in 2010 as an acoustic project. Allowing them to explore a more melodic vibe, not present in the metal scene currently enveloping the area. Eventually fate would find Lopez, along with his family, being uprooted with little warning. Finding themselves in Buenos Aires, Argentina. However this wasn’t enough to separate the songwriting duo. Dedication, sacrifice and a hell of alot of plane rides kept the artistic pair inseparable. In fact, it propelled them into their next stage. Danny Lopez was born in Cali Colombia, September 19th, 1995. Unlike so many musicians, whose high school years are spent enthralling themselves in the on and off of attempted bands. Lopez and Whalen took too each other young and fast. Harm & Ease being their adolescent project, it was obvious Lopez had found his counterpart. He knew what he wanted since day one of starting the group, and has dedicated his time and craft to creating and performing exciting and innovative music. Adoring sound from a young age, its no surprise he’s found himself defying odds. Effortlessly following the footsteps of titans before him. Embodying strength, its this drive that pushes the band forward, surpassing any obstacle. Playing both lead guitarist and manager, friend and brother has allowed this small duo from Burlington, Ontario to be so much more. For such a young man, he has lived quite a life. Existing and creating in several countries around the world, with a guitar and a truckload of songs as his tools of choice. With his distinctive glasses, hat and dreadlocks, he’s not hard to spot and is always willing to say hello.

53. David Tordjman - Hard Work Leads to Something Better
David Tordjman, devoted husband and father of 5,  grew up in Cote Saint-Luc where he still resides with his family.  He is a civil engineer by trade, and business owner working for various First Nation governments in Canada but is also involved in numerous community organizations and initiatives. As a city Councilor in Cote Saint-Luc he is dedicated to his constituents and making positive changes within his community and city.  He prides himself on being honest, hardworking and dedicated to the population in which he serves. This sentiment was first cemented while serving his country in the Canadian Armed Forces in his early twenties.  David was always interested in giving back to the country and community that he loved, a noble desire he acquired from his father, who proudly served  the Israeli Government.  Giving back has always been part of his DNA. In 2010, he embarked on a journey to aid the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake shook their already impoverished nation.  Working for the United Nations, he diligently and tirelessly strived to better the lives of all those afflicted by this horrific natural disaster, by managing a project responsible for getting its citizens back into their homes once deemed safe.  He subsequently won a United Nations “Project of the year” award for his efforts. He has served on multiple school and community committees and organizations, implementing change and improvement wherever possible. He is a strong advocate for doing the “right” thing, even if challenging, and for speaking his mind even when opposed.  He will be an honourable, honest and forth-coming Mayor for Cote Saint-Luc as a representative of the residents, moving Cote Saint-Luc forward.

Jonathan was born, raised, and educated in Central Alberta. After university graduation, I tried my hand at post graduate studies in International Law at the University of Nottingham, however, it turned out I had neither the temperament nor drive to finish that degree (in hindsight, it’s a minor miracle that I completed any post secondary education). Having always been interested in entrepreneurial endeavours, I started a home building company in 2006 in Lacombe, Alberta, which I still run to this day. In 2017, I ran and was elected to municipal council in Lacombe, and plan to run again in the 2021 municipal elections. I am married to a wonderful woman who’s been my partner for ten years, we share a young daughter who constantly reminds us who’s really in charge. I am a deeply heterodox in my outlook on life. I am addicted to all conversations existential. My atheism seems always seems to get tangled with my affinity for spirituality – my feelings about which I can never quite distinguish between sympathy and scepticism. My heroes are Christopher Hitchens, Bill Gates, Brett Weinstein, and Tony Stark.
