Selling Alberta through the Calgary Stampede
Original Air Date:
Friday, July 06, 2012
While the Calgary Stampede may be celebrating 100 years of history, its roots in agriculture date even further back to 1886 with the formation of the Calgary Agricultural Society.
Some say the ten-day exhibition links a growing gap between rural and urban Albertans, but livestock and crops are only one part of the show and others say the Stampede will face new challenges in the next century.
What will those challenges be? How has the Stampede branded the city and the province?
Joining us for this discussion is Dr. David Chalack, immediate Past President and Chairman of the Calgary Stampede Board of Directors, Veterinarian and Partner with Rocky Mountain Holstiens; Fran Anderson, the 1963 Stampede Queen, she now Chairs the Stampede Queens' Alumni; Max Foran, Historian and Professor in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Calgary.
