Apr. 24 - Covering the Oil Patch
Covering the Oil Patch is April. 24 from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Calgary Petroleum Club (Devonian Room) . It is an age when the words "tar" and "oil" applied to "sands" can delineate opposing sides; when "Keystone" elicits every emotion except indifference; when a proud province becomes a global petro power and citizens debate the legacy of Big Oil. In the middle of the conflict are the energy reporters of Alberta, some of whom have the additional challenge of covering the "home team". How well are they doing the job? How do they provide balance in the face of a massive industry with powerful roots in their community? What is the view from afar. To answer these questions--and to disabuse conventional wisdom, join Claudia Cattaneo, western business columnist for the National Post, Clifford Krauss, Houston-based national energy correspondent for The New York Times, Gillian Steward, Calgary-based journalist and a teacher at Mount Royal University, and Deborah Yedlin, business columnist for the Calgary Herald.
