On this week’s Insider Tanya and I talk about:

-A bear with cubs bites a hiker, the disconnect between good and bad decisions we make on the trails, and what it might take to move the needle on greater dog leash awareness.


-Some mixed feelings towards proposed upgrades to the Quarry Lake area and the online survey that closes Friday at noon.


-Tonight’s federal election forum and disillusionment with how our First Past the Post system plays out in Alberta.


-A new system for deciding the operator of next year’s Banff Farmer’s Market after some controversy in 2019.


-One step closer to having a Waste to Energy facility in Southern Alberta.


-New snow clearing policies in Canmore and Banff will hopefully make driving around town a little easier this winter.
