    I'd forgotten about that stone building on the right which was a dry cleaners when I used to go by there every day as a kid

    2023-26 Edmonton Budget

    Edmonton is debating a potential 3.9% tax increase (if I understood it right). Calgary passed a 4.4% increase Vancouver is debating a 5% increase

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    The problem is, the shortest route takes you right over Russia: - it'll be a while before that's an option again

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    It'll be interesting to see how that route does. I lived in Quebec City for years, and it was hard to get there from Edmonton (for a domestic route) -- and yet, the city has never really had good air service for the size of the place.

    New Zoning Bylaw

    The city, to its credit, has created an excellent site that explains the changes in easy-to-read language and where you can leave questions and comments.

    Smith could do a cheap win by funding all of Edmonton's bike plans for what she wants to spend on the Deerfoot

    Edmonton | Tower 101 | 175m | 50s | Regency Developments | DER + Associates

    Did anyone keep the façade the way the Alberta Hotel was kept?

    Edmonton Oilers

    A friend who covers sports in Toronto says Jack Campbell is one of the hardest people on himself after a loss and the first to credit everyone else after a win. This has a plus and a minus: The minus is he probably can't shake off a bad outing as easily as other goalies On the plus side his...

    Edmonton City Centre Mall (Renovations) | ?m | 2s | LaSalle Investment Management

    ^^ I also like the pedestrian-scale signage - I'm being a bit thick - is there a door at the corner (behind the hoarding)?

    Edmonton Oilers

    I agree. There were maybe two shifts where I thought he did some good, but that's too few for a player of his size and supposed calibre.

    Edmonton Oilers

    Looked to me on the first Nashville goal Campbell was trying to flip the puck up to the d-man who was a bit farther up, but instead of being a solid pass, it dribbled off his stick and onto the attackers. Been there many times myself 🥅

    103 Avenue Civic Precinct Renewal

    I like the road diet. Not a world-changing alteration, but to my eyes, it looks good.

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Could it come down to ownership and maintenance? If TransEd owns the space and is supposed to maintain it, then I could at least understand the logic of not opening the space, even if I don't agree with it.

    Regional Transit

    I forgot that a third line is planned to YEG as part of regional transit, with the Mill Woods/Beaumont line extending to the airport during peak hours

    Regional Transit

    30 peak and 60 off-peak if I remember correctly from the meeting. What really bothers me is you've got regional transit planning to go ahead with this AND you've got city council asking ETS about creating a route from downtown to the airport. They're not at cross-purposes, but they certainly...
