We launched a new fall series this morning on Daybreak. For the next few weeks, writer and historian Brian Brennan will join Sundays at 7:40am to talk about some of the various 'rogues and rebels' from Alberta's history. Our series is based on his new book, Rogues and Rebels: Unforgettable Characters From Canada's West, published by the University of Regina Press. It profiles both well-known and obscure westerners who dared to be different...such as Nellie McClung, Ralph Klein and social justice advocate Ruth Peacock Gorman.
