"I was very fortunate to meet UTP editor Dan Quinlan at the Congress of the Social Science and Humanities annual conference in 2012. Right from the beginning, UTP was supportive of my project! I am now fortunate to have published three times with UTP! I am the author of Land, Stewardship, and Legitimacy (2014), The Canadian Environment in Political Context (2nd edition 2019), and co-editor of the forthcoming Provincial Policy Laboratories (2021). The Press has always cared about me as an author and has sought every opportunity to make my work widely available (as ebooks and in print) to readers."
