At the opening ceremony for Calgary’s southwest ring road, seth cardinal dodginghorse interrupted the proceedings โ€”in the presence of Jason Kenney, Ric McIver, Tsuu’tina Chief Roy Whitney, and Mayor Naheed Nenshiโ€” and told his story. We’re pleased to have seth join us to discuss the context behind his action, the history of Tsuu’tina and Calgary, the legacy of colonization, and Calgary’s fixation on automobile culture.
