Dear Friends and Partners,

As bad as Mars needs Woman, Edmonton needs fish.

One would have thought that sending fresh fresh from B.C. or Eastern Canada would provide fresh and bountiful choices, but it does not. Many of the top grade selection is exported out of Canada or sold to high end commercial buyers (then resold and shipped again) at point of origin. What’s left is a small portion of select fillets and lesser grades that are shipped throughout Canada and processed.

 Now, with Icelandic Air flying directly between Edmonton and Reykjavik fresh fish, make that really fresh fish, is finally here!  There is discussion of sending local Bison and beef back to Iceland as well.

I like this story because it shows what can happen when Alberta opens up and begins trading on a larger scale, no matter the product. And having fresh fish is just another thing that makes Edmonton a desirable place to live, increasing the social and economic value of our province.

Business Booming at Edmonton explosion-testing lab

By Bill Mah, Edmonton Journal, May 9th, 2014

EDMONTON — A booming resource sector means the CSA Group is seeing explosive growth of its own in Edmonton.

In fact, there will be many blow-ups at its explosive atmosphere testing laboratory in the Edmonton Research Park, which will double in size by September.

“We have explosion chambers where we actually explode the product,” said Ash Sahi, president and chief executive of CSA.

“Let’s say a valve has to be tested so we put it in an explosion chamber, pump in gas and oxygen and a flame and blow it up — just like a bomb.”

Toronto-based Sahi was in Edmonton Friday to turn the sod on an expansion of CSA’s current hazardous locations laboratory.

A new windows and doors test lab, CSA’s first, is also coming in September.  FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE

Land rush hits Edmonton as hopefuls camp out overnight for individual lots

By Gordon Kent, Edmonton Journal, May 9th, 2014

EDMONTON - There was a modern Edmonton land rush Thursday as people waited outside overnight for a chance to buy property in Oxford Phase 2.

About 250 people lined up to be part of the draw for 40 city-owned lots in the northwest community.

“These days, people want to build their own house the way they want … That’s the major attraction, you can build the way you want,” Rajesh Arora said. “It’s very difficult to get individual lots.”

Arora, who lives in Ellerslie, was among the first 200 people at the Central Lions Seniors Recreation Centre, so his name will be part of Monday’s draw.  GRAB THIS STORY
