He’s been wandering throughout Edmonton this fall, dropping quips and comments on local urban design with photos on Twitter. I p...
Is there a solution for Edmonton’s vacant lots?: Examples exist throughout the city … vacant lots filled with garbage, crumbly holes surrounded by construction fencing, empty windows covered with ratty newspaper. Why does Edmonton have so many vacant commercial properties, and what can be done about it? The city has an initial two-part plan goi...
Major penalties in place if the Valley Line gets delayed: Edmonton’s LRT line between Mill Woods and downtown will open Dec. 15, 2020. Don’t laugh. That might be a bit more set in stone than the opening date for the Metro Line to NAIT, which was delayed yet again this week due to ongoing problems with the signaling. Wayne Mandryk, manager of LRT design ...

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 ...

In my heart I knew the special nature of this community and in many ways me, my company and my family have all benefited because of it.

Hitched & Honeymooning: Yesterday, in the city that we both love, I married my best friend. Sharon and I had a wonderful day, and we’re very grateful for all the kind messages that we have received – thank you! There are a bunch of photos up on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #MackAndSharon, and we’ll of course ...
Open Data in Edmonton is exciting again: After a few years of stagnation, I feel like open data in Edmonton is exciting again. This has been a great year for open data and open government in our city! Here’s an update on what’s been happening. International Open Data Day really kicked things off back in February with a hackathon hosted ...

Here’s a photo of him in action. Ryan previously performed the in-game host duties as a substi...

The Rise of Ride Share Services: Disruptive Technology in Action| By Paul Lopushinsky: A few weeks ago, Uber came to Edmonton to talk about potentially bring the service to the city, along with Calgary. Uber is a ride sharing service founded in March 2009 and has become one of the darlings of Silicon Valley, having a valuation of 18.2 billion as of June 2014 and one of the more dis...
Salesmanship and the Teetotalers of Cardston | By Faustino Matsushita: A very wise man once said, “Sales are contingent upon the attitude of the salesman – not the attitude of the prospect.” I had never heard of the speaker, one “W. Clement Stone,” before I read the quote—but he apparently made a lot of money and has his own Wikipedia page, so we know he has that mu...
