    Free Transit?

    Hi all, Been a while since I was active on the forum so I may not be up to date. If anyone has brought these points up already I apologize as (full disclosure) I only skimmed the previous 3 or 4 posts before writing this. When it comes to free transit, Edmonton is not at that point yet. Until...

    2022/23 Edmonton Oilers and news

    Kahun was slightly disappointing last year considering who he played with much of the season (Draisaitl). But I think he could still be a solid third line player, would have liked to see him back but ultimately he's replaceable in FA. Khaira is the one I'm a little more worried about losing. He...

    2022/23 Edmonton Oilers and news

    There are options for the Oilers still despite a couple poor moves in a row. Sounds like today Hyman's UFA rights will be traded here. A 5.5-6mx8y deal is already in place don't mind the cap hit but the term stings. Larsson going sucks, he was no doubt our best shutdown guy but this clears some...

    2022/23 Edmonton Oilers and news

    At this point to make the moves we need to make to improve the team after this trade the moves we need to make are to trade the Kassian contract (3,2 million until 23-24) apparently Pittsburgh has interest so get what you can for him. Ideally a bottom six-forward (Bleuger's RFA rights perhaps?)...

    2022/23 Edmonton Oilers and news

    This is one of the worst decisions I've seen and I've seen a lot as an Oilers fan. I honestly have no idea what Holland was thinking here. I actually wouldn't be so crazy angry about this trade if it wasn't for the salary (It still would've been bad but not so terrible). Jones is better and...

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    Also for some context to my previous post about a Western Canadian HSR network spanning from Winnipeg to the West Coast I'm not trying to suggest it's feasible or even possible in a lot of cases but simply musing as to what such a network might look like if it were to exist. I should have...

    Alberta Politics

    The UCP governement has been an absolute disaster from their attempt to destroy parkland for Australian mining to the multi-billion dollar botching of the Keystone XL project and the decimation of education and healthcare (In the middle of a pandemic!!). One would think that most Albertans would...

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    This announcement makes me wonder about possible future extensions to a network in the west. Winnipeg and Vancouver would be cities that could be connected. Winnipeg may have trouble generating ridership with a lower population and lackluster transit culture however an extension eastward would...

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    I think as time goes on and the city moves towards it's transit oriented future parking may become less and less of a concern and ignoring the long term benefits of a station in the centre city because of the issue of parking could come back to bite us. However I do see the issue here...

    EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

    It would likely mean the end of the High-Level to have the station downtown which I don't know if I would be okay with. The under-utilized CP Yards in Strathcona while not being downtown would be actually a very good option as it has a large customer base who would be more willing to take train...

    We Need To Do Things Better

    Islamaphobia is a huge issue, racism in general. We as a society need to be a better job of educating and understanding other cultures. I am incredibly lucky not to have to deal with any sexism, racism, homophobia etc. as a white cis-het man. I feel like I said earlier the source of these issues...

    Tourism Master Plan - 2021-2030

    Love the sound of this exactly the way I think Edmonton should market itself. A large, modern city with no shortage of green space, that is kind of a more grassroots alternative to Calgary. Also love the emphasis on our 4 seasons, there's no way to get around our winter so why not embrace it...

    2022/23 Edmonton Oilers and news

    A few players in mind, Cossa is one I've seen thrown out there and I wouldn't mind having a good quality goalie prospect in the system. I also like Oscar Olausson as a solid offensive winger. Really liked his game for Sweden at the WJC (though he didn't get a lot of attention being on a team...

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    Calgary is far more dependent on the oil industry than Edmonton and Alberta's oil industry is dying, We can't get any infrastructure complete to sell our product even if we could. Most places want to buy from the Middle East where it's significantly cheaper for a number of reasons. The world is...

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    The point isn't which city is doing better but rather why the province seems to give the middle finger to Edmonton at every turn despite it being the city that will likely be more important for Alberta in the future after the inevitable collapse of the oil industry. The U of A is a far larger...

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    Last I saw Calgary had one of the highest office vacancy rates in the country whereas Edmonton's was average. Sure people may not be leaving in droves but Edmonton certainly attracts more young talent with our university. (Even though no young people are flocking to Alberta anymore with the...

    LRT Expansion Planning

    Festival Way would be my stop!! I somewhat agree with the statement that this area has some of the best mixed use in the metro region. It's really nice to walk through and many of the shops are very busy (Remedy, Vickies). The area itself is very nice but it's lack of access to high quality...

    Edmonton | Glenora Park | 81.99m | 22s | ONE Properties | Wallman Architects

    This area is really going to become the Midtown of our city with all the new towers going in. In 5-10 years It should almost look like a second skyline. It's exciting to see Edmonton start allowing its more inner-city environments seep into some lower density areas. I just worry that some other...
