Dear Friends and Partners,

Another year is upon us. I hope that you have enjoyed 12 months filled with growth, change and enough 'wins' to be shaking your head at how fast it was spent. It seems that as we prepare to enter 2012 we enter it with much global uncertainty, as has been the norm for the past few years.
Optimism will prevail and with a bit of hope, and levelheadedness, political and economic stability will come to the nations that need balance the most.

In Alberta we remain very well situated and are better insulated (but not immune) to the global ups and downs; this last recession reminded us just how fast an economy can slow down. The good news remains the same as it was; Edmonton's long-term investing forecast is solid, steady and on track. Investors who focus on cash-flow and employ a long-term outlook, ride the real estate cycles which can be 5 to 7 years or longer, will do well.

Alberta is entering into another period of growth beginning in 2013, so lining up well priced and well positioned assets now is key; you still have incredible rates to take advantage of and relatively decent banking terms for revenue property investors - smart investors are picking up value priced property now.

Danielle and I always take time out over New Year to map out our goals for the year ahead. We focus on family, health, wealth and person goals - if you don't do this already, try it. It's a powerful way to get clear and synchronize as a family what you intend accomplish in the months ahead. As always, we sincerely thank you for your help, support and partnership. May 2012 be your best year yet.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a New Year filled with success!

Economy Oversold

By Nick Henselmeier, The Star Phoenix December 6th 2011
Re: Sask. unemployment sees small hike (SP, Dec. 3). An interesting fact is hidden in the November unemployment numbers: Saskatchewan no longer has the lowest unemployment rate in Canada, with that distinction going to Alberta.

While Labour Minister Rob Norris brags about Saskatchewan adding 4,500 jobs year over year, this is in comparison to 98,400 added in Alberta. In fact, Saskatoon's total labour market declined by 1.6 per cent in the third quarter, year over year. GRAB THIS STORY

BMO Economics: Energy Sector Will Keep Alberta Near Top of Growth Leaderboard in 2012
High oil prices strengthening energy sector and driving labour market - Real GDP growth of 3.3 per cent in 2011; 2.8 per cent in 2012 (Canada's at 2.3 per cent in 2011; 2.0 per cent in 2012)


Alberta's economy is significantly outperforming the national average in 2011, and should remain near the top of the growth leaderboard next year, according to the Provincial Monitor report released today by BMO Economics.Despite the sovereign debt crisis in Europe, cooling growth in China and expected sluggish growth in the U.S., West Texas Intermediate crude oil prices remain firm near $100 per barrel.

"Despite some temporary disruptions earlier this year due to wildfires, oil production was up a solid 7.8 per cent year-over-year through August, with even more robust 10.8 per cent year-over-year growth in crude bitumen production," noted Mr. Kavcic. "Longer term, Alberta is expecting raw bitumen production to rise 14 per cent per year in the next two years, as conventional crude output remains about flat, while natural gas production declines."

Ewart: Is It To Soon To Cheer Good News?
By Stephan Ewart, Calgary Herald. December 9th, 2011

The news the federal government has approved a 100,000-barrel-a-day oil sands mine in the midst of a key UN climate change conference essentially confirms that Ottawa is not about to bow to international pressure that would potentially harm the economy.

Canada has been singled out repeatedly during the United Nations conference in South Africa for a perceived lack of commitment to reducing the country's fast-rising greenhouse gas emissions.

In the face of the global criticism, Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver announced Thursday the approval of the $9.5-billion oil sands project. FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE
