Man dead after running red light in west Edmonton Saturday: A 27-year-old man is dead after a collision involving a stolen car in west Edmonton early Saturday morning. The collision occurred around 4:30 a.m. when a Pontiac Grand Prix travelling westbound sped through a red light at 132nd Avenue and 127th Street. The car ran into a northbound Nissan Sentra...
Edmonton and Calgary mayors make ‘humanity-based’ bet on CFL West final: As someone on Twitter said, it’s “a sports bet based on humanity, not humiliation.” Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson and Calgary head honcho Naheed Nenshi made a football bet via text Friday night at the kickoff of the southern city’s Food Bank drive. If the Eskimos win Sunday’s football game, Nenshi do...
Update: Snow causing highway havoc: Treacherous roads are causing havoc throughout central and northern Alberta, including the third fatal collision in Lac La Biche County in as many days.

City council gains a “crazy” winter biker: Looks like Edmonton city council now includes one of those ‘crazy winter bikers.’ Ward 1 Coun. Andrew Knack has been biking to work from West Jasper Place since June. He kept going when the weather turned cold, and when the snow fell he outfitted his mountain bike with the most expensive studded ...
Put money into school building, not unproven, ill-advised curriculum redesign: Veteran teacher speaks out about how to best spend education dollars (Editor’s note: the author, a veteran teacher, has asked that his/her name be withheld due to concerns over repercussions at work). If Alberta Education is looking for a way to fund school construction, it needs to look no furth...
The public information hazards of flood mapping in Edmonton: I understand my question put drainage officials in a tough spot. During a late September committee meeting they mentioned they had identified 12 to 15 neighbourhoods at a high risk of flooding if/when Edmonton gets hit by a one in 100 year storm. After the committee meeting, I asked for the list....

Do You Want to Go to a Sex Show? | By Erica Woolf: “Do you want to go to a sex show?” I received this text from my partner mid week. Immediately I was interested. I had heard some buzz around the city about this exhibition, and was definitely intrigued. With a little research I discovered that this “sex show” was none other than Edmonton’s Taboo ...
Redefining ‘Bitch’ | By Elliot Rose:   We are in the basement of the Mercer Building, having a coffee in the new Transcend location, just a few floors below Sarah Dharshi’s office. She’s decked out in all black, neo-Run DMC-attire with winterized Nike Roshers, fashionable leggings with angled seems, solid-coloured baseball jersey an...

Coming up at City Council: November 24-28, 2014: Agendas for upcoming City Council meetings are generally released on Thursday afternoons. I like to take a look to see what Council will be discussing, and I figured I should share that here. Below you’ll find links to the meetings taking place next week, as well as links to and thoughts on some ...
Recap: DemoCamp Edmonton 26: After missing the 25th DemoCamp (I was there in spirit) I was very much looking forward to last night’s DemoCamp Edmonton 26. I enjoy seeing what other local developers have been up to, and I almost always walk away feeling inspired. It’s also a great way to meet some new folks in the startup sce...

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. But in my stupidity, I ...
