It’s amazing. This City, that I love. We have an identity, what we think of ourselves, that is proud, self-deprecating, humble, yet helpful. We mock ourselves, we curse the snow… yet we stay here, build things and help each other thrive. It’s both part of our anthropological DNA and our current economic reality. Our image, which might be described as what others think of us, has always...
** Updated – see the comment from the dealership below, which they suggest the listing was all a mistake. Which if true, is fair enough. Either way, glad to see the dealership respond, and hopefully no one gets stuck with the car. Maybe they should part it out as art. I would pay $1000 for the hood.
* Updated – I did talk to the dealer this morning because I really didn’t know if they...
Since I was 9 years old (seriously), I have for the most part been independent. At that age, living in a low-rental apartment just north of the “new” Heritage Mall, I used my bike to see the World. Beyond riding it through the inside of an “under construction” Heritage Mall, I would ride as far as I had the confidence to ride, and that included as far east as the Saratoga Restaurant...
When it comes to the Edmonton Arena debate, I admit I have not been thinking about it as a zero-sum game. I admire so many opinions on either side of the discussion, and although I have been mostly supportive of it as a project that can contribute to transforming the City, I don’t blindly accept Edmonton needs this above all else; or if we need the Oilers organization at all, to reach our full...
Super Saturday indeed… Edmonton you rocked my world yesterday. Being downtown was an inspiration for anyone craving ideas, diversity, community and that “happy vibe” which makes good-cities great.
Lately I have been quite thirsty for some inspiration. Without new ideas and mental exercise I get cranky, bored, and if you ask my immediate family and friends, transform into an intolerable prick. Well...
If you live in Edmonton Rutherford, you will have access to one of the most interesting and possibly meaningful elections in decades. Tonight, we were reminded why your choice not only matters, but represents the best of opportunities to set a new forward looking course for moderately minded constituents.
On twitter, the Alberta Liberal candidate Rick Miller made what has become a common war-cry against...
Ok, now what?
Alberta will likely see it’s first change in government in 41 years. The Wildrose Party had an opportunity to lose its lead in political polls during tonight’s debate, and by most accounts, it looks like they only strengthened their grasp on the legislature.
As many of you know, this is not my first choice for the Province and especially Edmonton, which will almost certainly lose much of...
Today was HORRIBLE news for our family, as the Edmonton Capitals announced the inevitable; announcing the suspension of their 2012 season, from the dying North American Baseball League.
I could blog all night about how much we loved watching baseball at Telus Field, and I would be complimentary of the Edmonton Oilers for an amazing job in running the team and making nights & days at Telus Field a great...
