Tapping into that energ...
Peace, Order and Good Government: FIRST HALF The phrase ‘peace, order and good government’, a technical component of the Constitution Act, has meaning beyond my understanding; stuff of parliament, provincial vs. federal powers, taxation, etc. The cultural principles of POGG however make sense to me. I firmly identify with it as a...
It’s show me time in the Alberta Politics: Trying to find an opinion about the Alberta PC Party and its recent leadership race is easy. Finding one that is new, or would make a difference after being said, is nearly impossible. For this alone, the person who invented the word ‘clusterfuck’ might deserve a Pulitzer.

Santa helps welcome redeveloped park to Edmonton’s 4th street promenade area: Holiday cheer spread to the 104th street promenade on Thursday as residents, business owners and Santa Claus himself celebrated the opening of a new downtown park. An empty lot on 104th street had gone undeveloped after being donated to the city more than 30 years ago. In that time, the area only...
Two men charged with first-degree murder in death of man found near Edson: When Patrick Whidden returned to Wolfville, N.S. for Christmas, he told his high school friend, ‘Come on out to Alberta, what are you waiting for?’ Keight Hubbs took his advice and in the spring of 2010, she drove across the country to Red Deer where she moved into a house a block away from her b...
