For a writing assignment, I'm doing some research on my topic (CalgaryNEXT). Most sites I've seen report generally the same ideas and the same stats. Then I found this post of someone who attended a presentation by the project's lead, and he mentions a few other points not covered elsewhere.
Unfortunately though, its just "some dude on Reddit".
Is there any legitimate way of sourcing something like this, or must I rely on cut-and-paste articles from more reputable news sites?
