His legal career brought him into contact with the Stoney Nakoda First Nation at Morley, Alberta. Along the way, he explains how he came into direct conflict with Canadian judicial administration and various community leaders. After 30 plus years in public service, John Reilly retired in 2012. He lives in Canmore, Alberta.
