The day an angry gunman attacked Alberta legislature: 26 years later, the story of Robert Crawford has horrid echoes: His name was Robert Crawford. And on the morning of October 14, 1988, almost exactly 26 years ago, he terrified this city by going on a shooting rampage at the Alberta Legislature. Crawford, then 32, was no terrorist. He had no complicated political agenda. His grievance was as personal as it was...
Sonny Tomic helps Edmonton rethink approach to urban design: Has the city been as effective as it could be in encouraging good urban design in Edmonton? It turns out that’s what urban planner Sonny Tomic is in town to figure out. 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...

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 ...
Why I am Supporting Randy Boissonnault for Edmonton Centre: For many years, I chose not to concern myself with what the rest of Canada thought about Edmonton. 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. But in the last few years, especially as a business owner who ...

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 ...
Media Monday Edmonton: Update #127: Here’s my latest update on local media stuff: I haven’t yet seen an official statement from the team, but Ryan Jespersen has confirmed on Twitter that he’s the new in-game host for the Edmonton Oilers. Here’s a photo of him in action. Ryan previously performed the in-game host duties as a substi...

Album Review: Tasman Jude’s ‘Green’ | By Blair Wade: In the heart of Alberta’s north where the threat of winter will soon creep in, one band is bringing the warmth of Trinidad and Tobago with the release of their soulful new album. That band is Tasman Jude. Based out of Grande Prairie, they’ve been on the scene just shy of two years and are proclai...
Oiler Fans Shouldn’t Be Giving Up Yet| Adam Woods: I couldn’t help but notice over the past few weeks Oilers fans already throwing in the towel and completely freaking out, which is not at all surprising considering the team’s 1-5 start to the season. Given that early signs point to a disappointing season ahead, its understandable that victory de...

Front-runner Mandel targeted by opposition candidates in Edmonton-Whitemud: The strategies fuelling the major opposition campaigns in the Edmonton-Whitemud byelection have been built around their main opponent, Health Minister Stephen Mandel, while the former Edmonton mayor has predictably run a “safe” race, a political observer says. For the NDP and Liberals, the focus ...
Alberta baby boom causing crunch for hospitals: The Stollery Children’s Hospital is at a “tipping point” as it deals with the ripple effects of a Western Canada baby boom that contributed to the postponement of almost five per cent of surgeries in six months this year. That’s a jump from 2013, when about four per cent of surgeries were postpon...
