EPISODE 137: Celebrating Douglas Mitchell

On this episode, our correspondent, Aubrianna Snow, learns about the tremendous community impact of Douglas Mitchell.

Douglas held countless titles and honours throughout his life. He was a leading professional in law, a football player for both the BC Lions and Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and an advisor to countless community organizations. More importantly, he was a loving husband to former Alberta Lieutenant Governor, The Honourable Lois Mitchell, and a father of four children.

In 2017, Lois and Douglas worked together to create the History and Heroes Foundation, which serves to promote the diverse history of our province and provide funding to students with a passion for exploring Alberta’s past.

With Douglas Mitchell’s passing in July of 2022, Edmonton and Canada lost a sports icon and dedicated philanthropist, but his legacy lives on through the profound impact he left on the many communities he was a part of.
