Laine is currently working as a labour, social justice and human rights activist for a large Alberta union.  She found her way there in 2007 after completing her degree in law and society at the University of Calgary.  Laine is passionate about issues involving people and the environment.  She fundamentally believes that humanity is a cooperative species, but that many of the species have forgotten this.   She has four fur children – two dogs and two cats – and relies up on them regularly to maintain perspective.  At the end of the day, we all just need food, shelter, a little comfort and each other.
