Dear Friends and Partners,

Sunday I woke up to the familiar sound of big, gusty, fall winds. It was refreshing. The funny thing was that the wind was warm, not cool like it usually is this season. Outside is warm and sunny, the temperature in the high 20's.

I look down the road and the grasses are all mown short and remain various shades of green; the vibrant dark green of a well fertilized early summer lawn to the lighter, softer colours of a suntanned late summer pitch. What I found interesting was that the leaves were changing beginning to crumple up and tumble down the street. Despite our summer weather, fall is almost here.

During this short season (here in Edmonton that is) we find it an excellent time to clean up and prep properties for the winter freeze and more importantly, the spring thaw. Cleaning gutters, adjusting downspouts, sealing and coating exterior/interior walls, repairing windows, roofs, chimneys and the like. You can find detailed lists of fall prep online.

Also with this time of year we contemplate the internal, mental prep needed to march into Q3. This is a great time to review your yearly goals, make sure you are on track to finish strong and adjust were needed.

Edmonton paycheques third largest in Canada

By Andrea Sands, Edmonton Journal, September 12th, 2013

EDMONTON - New statistics on Canada’s income levels and housing show Edmonton’s economy is one of the most successful and dynamic in the country, says the city’s chief economist.

That doesn’t mean, however, that some people aren’t left behind, John Rose said. A small number of Edmontonians earning extraordinarily high incomes can skew income numbers upward, “so I’m a little nervous about income-distribution issues,” he said.  FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE


'Dutch disease' Build Healtheir Economy, Economist says

By Laura Payton, CBC News, September 5th 2013

The concept behind "Dutch disease" — the idea that a resource boom is bad for the manufacturing sector — is entirely wrong, economist Stephen Gordon argues in a new report.
Federal politicians have argued over Dutch disease as part of the debate surrounding Canada's oilsands and whether development should be slowed.

The argument says that a resource boom — like the one seen in the oilsands — drives up the value of the currency, making exports more expensive for customers outside of Canada and costing manufacturers some of their business. GRAB THIS STORY


Laphier: No need to listen to Neil Young's take on the Oilsands

By Gary Lamphier, Edmonton Journal, September 11th, 2013

EDMONTON - "As a serious-minded newspaper columnist, I woke up Wednesday with one pressing question on my mind: What does Neil Young think?
I was desperate to hear his views on just about anything - twerking, Miley Cyrus's new video, the situation in Syria, Stephen Harper's hair, Anthony Weiner's sexting habits, the Eskimos' struggling offensive line, you name it.
I need to know, because clearly, what the 67-year-old rocker and anti-oilsands activist thinks about the big issues of the day is of vital importance to the mainstream media.
Why, just yesterday the Toronto-born music icon and green crusader was prominently featured in most major newspapers (including this one) after comparing Fort McMurray toHiroshima, the Japanese city that was obliterated by a U.S. atomic bomb on Aug. 6, 1945.

At first I thought it was a ridiculous, wholly inappropriate analogy from a guy who knows little about the energy industry. Fort McMurray is like Hiroshima? Really? That seemed utterly absurd, not to mention an insult to the memories of the thousands who died that terrible day." READ MORE HERE
