Perspectives Daily - Thursday, Jan. 12

January 12, 2012
Tonight on Perspectives: we speak with Senator Betty Unger, Alberta's newest senator.
Senator - elect Unger is former nurse from Edmonton and an active Catholic. She has served as chair of the pastoral council at her home parish, St. Joseph's Basilica, and in various other roles at the parish. As well Unger has served on the board of directors of Edmonton's archdiocesan newspaper, the Western Catholic Reporter for nine years.  Her appointment to the Canadian Senate means she will have to step down from her activity on various boards in her community. Notably, she is the second person affiliated with the Western Catholic Reporter to become a Senator. The former editor Douglas Roche was appointed to senate in 1998 and served until his retirement in 2004.
