    Fixed that for you, and us sadly. We should divert that $170M for bikes lanes towards a plan to dismantle, transport and rebuild the legislature in Calgary at this point.

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    Not just MB, SK, AB and BC, they are planning to do the same thing that AC does at Toronto by bringing in U.S. connecting passengers. They will be leveraging their west coast and southwest U.S connections. I have already seen adds in California for WestJet to Europe with a stop and explore...

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    These are my thoughts on the current situation and most recent events with YEG (or those that affect YEG): 1) WestJet is not the WestJet of 15-20 years ago. Historically WestJet grew with YEG when it started because it was the second biggest city it served starting out (YYC being the other, of...

    Edmonton | Bateman Lands Mid-Rise | 34m | 8s | Bateman Properties | Next Architecture

    Another great example of demolishing an existing building only to not be able to execute on the project. At what point does city admin wake up and start issuing demolition permits only when building permits are issued?

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    I really really really hope it is someone who has the kahunas, connections, and relationships that can jump start this airport. I believe we need someone who can get back to the basics and refocus the airport on what it's core business is - transporting people - and focus much less on all the...

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    Air Canada Jazz's last remaining domestic Canadian service (at least for the time being) from Edmonton, the country's 5th most populous city and a large economic center will now only be Calgary...no more Ft. Mac, GP, Yellowknife (if it truly is seasonal), Regina, Saskatoon, Victoria, Kelowna, or...

    Edmonton Companies News & Discussion

    According to Google Maps the mayor is a 5 minute walk or 450m from AIMCo but I am not sure he's ever stepped foot into the CBD to assist with our business community. Iveson, and now Sohi have never demonstrated in my opinion the slightest inkling of business acumen. I truly believe that this...

    Edmonton Corporate Development & Attraction

    While 10 new jobs is good, its a drop in the bucket. Does anyone know what Edmonton Global's success rate or KPIs are for attracting bigger investment to the region?

    Edmonton Companies News & Discussion

    While ATB still has its head office here, many functions have shifted to Calgary and many new operating units have opened up there instead of here, ala their venture group, their tech group, capital markets group, etc. The de facto HO is still in Edmonton but more and more has been run out of...

    Parking, Parking, Parking

    You are surprised? Look no further than any dilapidated and neglected development pits like anything of Regency's or the Arlington and you will see that enforcement of bylaw isn't really a strength and/or a priority for the city. Can't expect citizens to want to take pride and care of their...

    Will make the gradual transition of the head office from Edmonton to Calgary a lot easier and more under the radar this way.

    Calgary is desperate for wins? Ridiculous comment.

    Edmonton Corporate Development & Attraction

    I wanted to start a new thread on the topic of corporate development and attraction to Edmonton. This topic is often discussed throughout various threads so why not formalize and centralize it here. I am curious and interested to discuss what needs to be done to increase corporate investment...

    This. While converting empty commercial space is a solution for what to do with the empty space, it is a solution for the symptom and not the cause. The space is empty because Edmonton does not attract business and investment to the core. When was the last time a corporation from the suburbs or...

    Edmonton | ICE District Block IJ | ?m | ?s | ICE District Prop. | Next Architecture

    There is newly erected fencing around the site along with steaks planted closer to the 104 ave side.

    Alberta Politics

    You are making a rational point that makes sense but a lot of UCP followers and supporters are not rational thinkers and will twist just about anything to f**k Notley and the NDPs. A real Trumpian style. Remember that Notley was in effect the one who pushed for and supported pipeline...

    Edmonton | Jasper House | 108m | ?s

    I'll take that one step further by saying business / commerce in general is an afterthought in this city and Edmonton is a very unfriendly business city. You want tourists to come to the city or specifically in the context of the conversation for the water front? Then you need things to attract...

    Edmonton Branding and Tourism strategy

    Cannabis tourism? Really? We like to poo poo our distance from Jasper as a deterrent for increased tourism but I would be willing to bet my money that there is a bigger market for tourists interested in going from Edmonton to Jasper than there is tourists coming to Edmonton for cannabis...

    The irony of City Center Mall making a comeback thanks to Zellers, a discount store, as a new tenant making a comeback lol
