Calgary Green Party Candidate Thana Boonlert


A few years ago I met Thana Boonlert street-shooting on Stephen Ave. We chatted about our craft and over the course of an insta-friendship and then some coffee dates, I learned he was an engineer and, go figure, an agent of social change. As a member of the Green Party of Alberta and now officially representing Calgary for the soon to be announced political campaign, Thana Boonlert is running on his belief in science and rationality. While we here at Perspectives YYC must steer clear of any specific political lean, one question arose in the recording of this session at Thana's launch party: Can Reason Win Over Rhetoric in Modern Politics? The only contribution we can make is to offer an avenue for said discussion to take place. 
Thanks to Thana and the Green Party of Alberta for allowing us access to this great event. And as always to MediaLabYYC for production and Thomas Thomas Band for this hot intro/outro track!
