CJSR-FM: Sofia Osborne - Investigating In Alberta
Sofia Osborne is a student at the University of Alberta and a producer on Terra Informa, a weekly environmental news program covering issues from across Canada & around the world.
Sofia conducted a long form interview with Sharon Riley, an investigative journalist covering energy and the environment in Alberta for independent online magazine The Narwhal. The two talk about one of Sharon’s recent publications covering delinquent oil and gas companies in Alberta and their cost to tax payers, as well as taking a look behind the scenes at environmental investigative reporting. What is it like reporting for an environmentally focused publication on issues that some people see as controversial? This piece highlights the importance of fact-finding and trying to understand the context of peoples answers—not just reporting on what people say but why they are saying it.
