Dear Friends and Partners,

My opening newsletter for May was titled 'Winds Of Change' and they certainly blew through our nation and province; both figuratively and literally. Every riding but one in Alberta is Conservative. We will all benefit from a majority government for the next 4 years (hopefully) bringing continued economic growth and stability leading the country out of the recession.

Real Estate wise I have seen a unique little hot-spot develop in the area in which I live; house hunters are combing the sleepy tree-lined streets. The most sought after homes have character, are suited and nestle the green belt. Now I'll temper that comment with the buyers being very price sensitive - there is a narrow margin of what the market is saying these houses are worth and if you are priced over, your listing will stagnate. There are other hot-pockets (not like Jim Gaffigan's) around town, and plenty of flat ones too.

Another literal affect of the winds of change, was the wind we've had this week. I awoke on Friday morning to discover one of my trees had split in half and blown down on the freshly planted blueberry bushes. I marvel these forces. Be an act of force; be the change you want to see.

U of A Eyes South Campus For High Tech Institute

By Keith Gerein, Edmonton Journal. May 7th 2011

The University of Alberta's president thinks her school's south campus would make an ideal home for an advanced technology institute, one of the major proposals touted by a government-appointed economic panel.

Indira Samarasekera said the site's abundance of undeveloped land, access to the LRT and proximity to the U of A's research centres make it a good spot to host an institution dedicated to commercializing discoveries. FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE

By Darcy Henton, Calgary Herald May 6th 2011

Alberta must stop using royalty revenues to fund day-today operations and start pumping all its energy dollars into a fund that will support hightech companies, economic diversification and targeted initiatives such as high-speed rail, says a report from a blueribbon economic panel.
