Dear Friends and Partners,

For our mid-month newsletter ponder, or put into action, this thought by the great, Steve Chandler:

"Nothing is ever as hard as the mind makes it when thinking about it in advance. Nobody would ever get any results if they stayed in their minds, thinking about what has to be done in the future. Results happen when the mind is left behind in favor of fresh, exciting, creative action.

    Nobody cares what you think. No one cares what you are committed to. Only action communicates with others. Only action commands attention."

Job growth has flatlined across the country - except in Alberta

By Jamie Sturgeon, Global News, March 12th, 2014

The February jobs report released by Statistics Canada last week is driving home a trend experts have been taking note of: Alberta’s economy is leaving the rest of the country in the dust.
While last month’s labour force survey painted a dismal jobs picture across much of the country, Alberta was the major exception.

A potent energy sector is the engine of a provincial economy that is booming, registering a pop of 18,000 jobs or 3.8 per cent last month while the rest of the country laboured under lacklustre or even negative job growth.  FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE


Alberta promises cash, interest-free loan for Edmonton LRT expansion

By Dave Lazzarino, Edmonton Sun, March 11th, 2014

Mill Woods residents may have a new way to get downtown as soon as 2020 as the last financial spike for the Valley Line LRT was driven home Tuesday.
Premier Alison Redford and Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson met at Churchill Station with numerous fellow politicians in tow to announce a solution to the city’s $365 million shortfall for the $1.8-billion LRT line construction.

“Edmonton told us we needed more. Our caucus told us we needed more. And we listened,” said Redford, before outlining how the province will be providing $600 million toward the rail line that will run from Mill Woods to downtown.

The details involve the city being eligible for $250 million in Green Trip funding, a further $150 million to match federal grant dollars and a $200 million 10-year, no-interest loan from the province.  GRAB THIS STORY


Canada’s best places to live

By Melissa Ramsay, Global News, March 12th, 2014

CALGARY – A city in Alberta has been named Canada’s best place to live by Money Sense magazine.
St. Albert, located northwest of Edmonton on the Sturgeon River, topped the magazine’s annual list for the very first time.

It nabbed the esteemed spot thanks to several factors, such as boasting some of the highest incomes in the country, its unemployment rate — which sits at just above four per cent — and crime rates which are steadily falling.

In addition, officials say while winters in St. Albert can be skin-splittingly cold, it’s at least sunny all year round.  READ MORE HERE
