In addition, with Lynda at the helm, we will expand the advocacy role of On Your Side and aggressively challenge those who would cheat or take advantage of the honest consumer."

Global Edmonton still has her bio page up:
Personally I've always enjoyed looking at (I mean "watching") Lynda Steele ("newscasts"). This move was rumoured for quite some time after her husband accepted a new RCMP posting in BC. The "On Your Side" segment came open when Chris Olson left his role and took a job with new BC Premier Christy Clark as her Press Secretary.
