CAL HILL is a retired geologist having spent his career working for the Alberta Energy Regulator. In his last few years with the regulator, he was responsible for strategy and regulatory development. This included providing scientific assessments of Alberta’s energy resources and the demand for them as well as understanding trends in global energy consumption and what that meant to Alberta.  Since his retirement, Cal continues to be interested in the topic of energy and how it impacts on our environment. In his spare time, he wanders the foothills and mountains with his wife Judy, attempting to become a better outdoor photographer. Cal lives in the Cochrane area.

There was a large and appreciative audience for Duane Bratt‘s talk on political populism at April’s Ideas. We are grateful that Duane donated his time, energy and clarity of thought to make the event so stimulating.
