The Commons Edmonton Podcast:

On Civil Society and Democracy

Host Rod Olstad and guests explore the “Third Sector”: the Voluntary and not-for-profit/Non-Governmental sectors of the Canadian Economy from a local perspective.  How are Edmontonians and others  “picking up the slack”; taking on the tasks and needs that are left unfulfilled by the corporate and public sectors?  How are these efforts reflected in our democracy and the media?  

Albertans happen to donate more money to charities and NGOs than any other Canadian province.
