E005: Life on the Border


?We Are Alberta is a podcast with ATB economist, Nick Ford. Each episode features real stories of Albertans viewed through an economic lens. The episodes are an insightful view into fascinating stories and industries you might not know are right in Alberta’s backyard.

In this episode…

Milk River is a town of nearly 900 people and is about 70 kilometers south of Lethbridge. What makes Milk River unique is not the milky appearance of the river that flows through the town, although that’s certainly part of it, but rather the town’s proximity to the US border.

In this episode, we’re spending time at ATB’s southernmost branch to speak with Bonnie, a resident of Milk River for almost 26 years. We wanted to find out what life is like living so close the border, especially now when things seem a little more tense.
