My name is Ian Hussey and I’m a research manager at Parkland Institute, a progressive public policy think tank housed at the University of Alberta where I design, conduct, and manage political economy, labour, and climate research. I’m also a steering committee member and the Alberta regional research manager for the Corporate Mapping Project, a six-year SSHRC partnership grant between the University of Victoria, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and Parkland Institute that focuses on the oil, gas, and coal industries in western Canada. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of any organization I’m affiliated with.
