187. Dr. David Zwoboda - Healing Plants

David is a doctor of physical therapy who started his own company to remotely take care of his fellow jiu jitsu athletes within just a year of finishing PT school. During that time though, he started down his own path of healing using plant medicines, and he became more interested in helping people improve their mental and spiritual health instead of just working on the physical aspects of wellness. Together with his wife, David is now helping others start or progress on their paths with plant medicines through facilitating private psilocybin ceremonies, organizing Ayahuasca retreats with indigenous healers in Peru, and by coaching people on how to incorporate psilocybin microdosing into their lives. He's also on a mission to reinstate an aspect of spirituality into jiu jitsu, which seems to have eschewed this aspect that's shared by every traditional martial art. You can find more on his instagram @davidzbjj or at becomingom.com where you can learn about the microdosing program and the retreats David and his wife offer, including the world's first ever plant medicine infused jiu jitsu retreat in Mexico.

183. Chelsae Petrovic - Get Involved

My life being raised in rural Alberta is a story of service. I am a married mother of two children. I value Conservatism and my Christian beliefs. Together, my family run a small business and our family's ranch land is tucked in the heart of southern Alberta. As part of a family operating a small business, I understand the difficulties the past few years have brought upon our rural communities in Livingstone-Macleod with rampant inflation, and run-away cost of living. My service as a nurse in our community for 12 years has been one of care and compassion to ensure everyone is taken care of in our community. Taking care of people did not stop at the hospital. I serve as the community coordinator of the fastest growing not-for-profit organization in the community called My City Care. I work to provide a team of volunteers with everything they need to operate our many programs such as the Shop of Wonders, the Cinderella project, Farm to table, and the Lunch box program. I favour a hand up approach, over handouts and these programs work towards this idea. In 2020, I was recognized locally as Citizen of the Year for my volunteer work and community involvement, which has encouraged me to continue to serve in any way I can. As the Mayor of Claresholm, I have worked to be of service to my entire community. I knew I needed to get involved in public service after seeing the unprecedented changes and challenges the past few years have brought about in our homes and communities. I want to ensure we do everything we can to keep this province the best place to live and raise a family. I lead by example and have never been shy about standing up for my values and beliefs, and I wont be shy about standing up for you. Listening to the people of Livingstone-Macleod and putting you first is my top priority. I will continue to stand up for what is best for our communities. With your support, I am standing up to serve our small towns, ranches, farms, and the most beautiful riding in Alberta. I humbly ask for your support to serve as your voice in the legislature.

181. Theo Fleury - The Insane Are Running The Asylum

Theo Fleury is perhaps best known for his time on the ice. But off the rink, his life once carried the markings of a troubled childhood, abuse and coping with emotional pain through addictive and self-destructive behaviours. Today, Theo defines himself as a victor over trauma and addiction, and a facilitator to those still trying to find their way. His best-selling books, Playing with Fire and Conversations with a Rattlesnake, encourage open sharing and provide practical tools that people seeking help can personally use. These tools are also useful to those who want to lead a productive conversation, called “Real Conversations”, with anybody else experiencing trauma. Theo has been awarded the Canadian Humanitarian Award and the Queen’s Jubilee Medallion. He is a Siksika Nation Honorary Chief and recipient of the Aboriginal Inspire Award. He also holds two honorary doctorates – one in Science from the University of Guelph-Humber for outstanding contributions to the mental health of Canadians, and another in Laws from Brandon University for his work in combating child abuse and promoting healing and recovery.

180. Tanya Clemens - Stepping In To The Ring

Tanya Clemens, UCP Nomination Candidate or Livingstone-Macleod Why I’m running: I am born and raised in Livingstone-Macleod and have always felt the calling to serve my community. I view political leadership as both a service and a civic duty. Alberta sits at a precipice. If we continue heading toward the sovereign Alberta the United Conservative Party (UCP) is leading us towards, we will realize the prosperity and freedom Albertans deserve. If we do not continue on this path, slipping backwards from this precipice, we risk unprecedented damage to our core industries (natural resource development, agriculture, etc.), resulting in further hardships for Albertans. I am very proud of our rural roots, entrepreneurial spirit, and strong work ethic. I want power returned to the people of this province and for our elected representatives to acknowledge their leadership as a service to their constituents.

174. Tom Marazzo - Your Ego is Your Enemy

174. Tom Marazzo - Your Ego is Your Enemy

Tom Marazzo has been dedicated to serving Canadians since 1990 when he joined the Army Reserve, while still in high school. Eight years later, he enrolled in the Regular Force Army and was granted the commission of Combat Engineer Officer, soon rising to Captain. Tom worked in the Division Engineer Office in Toronto where he participated in the G8/G20 Summit in 2010. While in the military, Tom earned a Diploma in Construction Engineering Technology and Architecture, and an MBA. He has been posted to various locations across Canada including New Brunswick, Petawawa, Kingston, Toronto, London, Ontario and Trenton. After 25 years of service, Tom retired from the Armed Forces in 2015. He completed a 4-year Bachelor of Technology Software Development degree and immediately began teaching at a Community College in Ontario until September 2021, when he was fired for questioning the legality of vaccine mandates, via a campus-wide email to the president and members of the college faculty. Determined to stand for the rights and freedoms of all Canadians, Tom became a volunteer of the Canadian Trucker Freedom Convoy 2022. Trained in battle planning over many years, Tom’s tactical and strategic advice was instrumental to the safe and responsible achievement of Convoy objectives. His experience was integral to the coordination of truck movements and logistics, as well as negotiations with Police Liaison Teams from the city of Ottawa. A member of the leadership team, Tom acted as the main spokesperson, holding press conferences almost daily. The incredible success of the Convoy can be measured by the mandates removed in the province of Ontario. No longer able to remain silent, Tom felt a deep sense of duty to serve as a conduit for people that believe in the integrity and ability to turn our political landscape around. To serve the people of Canada, Tom ran as an Ontario Party Candidate in the 2022 Ontario provincial election. Witnessing Canadians losing their inalienable human rights is not something to ignore or abide by. Tom’s unwavering commitment to Canadians is the reason he’s writing a highly person and detailed account of his life experiences leading up to, during and in the after math of the Freedom Convoy.

166. Kris Sims - Free Speech and Journalism

Born in small town British Columbia, Sims has been employed (and taxed) since she was 12 years old, working in horse stables, fast food joints and gas stations before attending journalism school at BCIT. She worked in radio on Vancouver Island before moving to Ottawa to work as a legislative assistant on Parliament Hill. She then joined News Talk Radio 580 CFRA as a producer, reporter and anchor, eventually becoming a journalist for the CTV Parliamentary Bureau. Sims was a founding reporter for Sun News Network and proudly covered issues of big government, personal liberty and the rights of small town and rural Canadians until Sun News was shut down. She then worked as a director of communications on Parliament Hill, and as the senior producer for Evan Solomon at CFRA Radio.

154. Brian Crowley - The Limits of Expertise

Brian Lee Crowley, one of Canada’s most original political thinkers, has produced a stunning road map for how we can steer Canada into a brighter political future. He claims that we can divide political culture into two categories: designers and gardeners. Designers believe that they have sufficient knowledge to impose their will on others, without any unintended consequences, while gardeners are more modest and are content to work with what already exists, especially where whatever already exists has virtues or beauties. Crowley argues that we need fewer designers making top-down pronouncements, and more gardeners who are willing to work from the bottom up, cultivating instead of engineering. We should all aspire to be gardeners: planting, growing, appreciating the results, and building something that will thrive in the ideal political, social, and cultural soil.

149. Raymond Strom - Community Can Save Us

Ray's political involvement began at an early age, when in the late 1950s he was a youth member of the Social Credit Party, begun by William Aberhart, continued by Ernest Manning and then Harry Strom, Ray's uncle.  It was during this time that much of his conservative values were formed largely within family but also the larger community.  This has shaped his views right up to the present, with memberships in the conservative movement (UCP) parties right up to the present. Ray currently owns and operates a geological laboratory based in Calgary, but serves clients worldwide. One interesting sidetone is that his innovative technical skills have led him to travel to interesting places, not the least of which are Jordan and Israel.  Verifying obscure passages of the Bible, sometimes thought to be myths, has deepened his and other's faith.  Expeditions to Grand Canyon and other sites in the U.S. Southwest have verified formerly questioned statements. Ray has been an active part of the home education movement in Alberta and Canada.  Active engagement with government in those early years of home education in the 1980s led to leadership in that movement, constant interaction with government, and now continues with his board position on the Home School Legal Defence Association Canada. Ray's motto:  "Follow your God-given passions and hang on for the ride of your life." Raymond Strom was born in Southern Alberta, and grew up in the community of Burdett. This was and is a community of leadership and entrepreneurial spirit. Example, first pivot sprinkler in Canada. Ray was raised in a faith family in which at an early age, he personalized that faith that continues to this day. Ray also grew up in a family steeped in political involvement. It is this compulsion to serve and contribute meaningfully to community and society that motivates and is Ray’s desire to run for the position of Vice-President – Policy and Governance. Covid times has pressed our resources, both personal and collective, to the limits, and much of this has been brought on by straying from foundational principles. It should be noted that our UCP documents clearly lay out these basic principles and policies. We have diverged from those foundational values, and it is time to return to them. Further, it is time to lay aside differences that threaten to separate our members, and unite as we move forward into what could possibly be our finest hour as a province. Our expertise, recognized on a global scale, and personally experienced by Ray as he worked in Africa, is well recognized, and follows the “Alberta Advantage”. It is time to return to Faith, Family and Country, and out of that, see the prosperity of our province revived, as we move within those foundational principles. Please vote for Raymond Strom – VP – Policy and Governance.

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.

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.
