    Do cool stuff

    I've often thought about the downhill go-karts. I've been to Skyline Luge in Calgary and both locations in New Zealand. The two best ones are in Rotorua NZ and Calgary which have ~100m elevation drop. The one in Rotorua is especially good because it winds through an old growth forest. The...

    Car-Free Streets

    And to be clear, I am in favour of this proposal. I agree that traffic has become accustomed to the closure of 102 Ave and appears to be operating just fine. I support the idea of prioritizing pedestrians in the core of our city. I just feel that the south half of the streetscape would have...

    I attended a conference this week with a presentation by Jeffrey Hansen-Carlson of Ellis Don Capital regarding both the Prairie Sky Gondola and Prairie Link HSR proposals. The presentation was somewhat vague in details as the proposal is still in the developmental stage and he didn't want to...

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

    The travel time between YEG and downtown Edmonton will be well over an hour with LRT, vs ~20 minutes with direct HSR service. Travellers to/from the airport will have luggage, which may cause overloading of the LRVs. HSR train cars will be equipped with luggage racks. People living in south...
