This story has it all, folks— Canadian media concentration, scabs who you’ll now recognize as right-wing hacks, a literal press baron, police intimidation and brutality, private security goons, and much much more!

Twenty years ago, workers at the Calgary Herald went on what would become an eight-month strike, citing editorial overreach, a torqued political slant, and unfair treatment in the newsroom. On this episode of Calgary's The Alberta Advantage podcast, striker Terry Inigo-Jones joins the show to discuss his experience taking on the newspaper and its then-owner, Conrad Black.
