Barbara Stewart lived in Edmonton AB on Summit Dr, above MacKinnon Ravine, during the period of controversy concerning the proposed development of a high-density roadway through the ravine. She was involved in resistance to the proposal and may have become involved with the Urban Reform Group Edmonton (URGE) because of its opposition to unrestricted use of the river valley as transportation routes.
