Mark Harvey has been a journalist in Alberta and B.C. for more than 20 years, working as a reporter, interviewer and radio producer.

Some of Mark's recent stories:

  • When "Water Testing Kits" were left in Edmonton mailboxes, we interviewed the man behind the program: a water-softener salesman with no credentials to test for water safety.
  • Needle clean-up in an inner-city park. City officials told concerned residents that their park was clean—but our pictures showed otherwise: dozens of contaminated needles and other filth, right after a supposed clean-up. If you find a dirty needle, the city tells you to call 311, but staff could offer no help. The park was cleaned and 311 staff trained after our stories aired.
  • A company with a questionable past offered residents "waterline insurance", using the EPCOR logo and a letter from EPCOR's vice-president. City-owned EPCOR wouldn't reveal what it was paid to sell the logo, but we got a refund for the Edmonton senior who'd fought for ten months to get her money back.
  • Alberta Transportation placed signs for Jasper, Fort McMurray and other locations on Anthony Henday Drive after we aired a story about an obscure government policy prohibiting too many destination signs.

Go Public Edmonton stories come almost exclusively from people who send us ideas. We shed light on untold stories that are of public interest and we hold those responsible accountable. If your story is one we can tackle and it's in the public interest, we'll take it on. We'll get to the bottom of the problem, and find out who's responsible.
