Dear Friends and Partners,

Edmonton is green again. I don’t mean all the talk of diversifying into green energy, I mean spring!

 It has sprung around our city and we’re seeing lots of activity with construction. Several of our target mature neighbourhoods, are seeing prep-work for new sidewalks, roads repaved and even streetlights put in. There are lots of new builds up in Ritchie, Bonnie Doon and Westmount.

We’ve got roads being widened for LRT expansion and all to the backdrop of the arena and towers going up. Yes, there’s a fog of (legitimate) gloom that you have to peer through to see all that, but it’s happening. The grass still grows and the sun still shines. The strategy is to play a 'longterm game' at this point.

Edmonton mayor seeks to make city a leader in health innovation

By Justin Giovannetti, Globe and Mail, April 25th., 2016

Mayor Don Iveson said Edmonton’s economy is due for a rebranding as he unveiled plans Monday to market the struggling city as Canada’s hub for health innovation.

With 250 health-science companies already based in Edmonton, many of them startups, the new marketing strategy doesn’t come with public investment attached. Instead, Mr. Iveson says all the pieces are already there, including a world-class university, a large provincial investment fund and a group of young entrepreneurs. READ MORE HERE 


Why Trudeau must approve one of these pipelines

By Campbell Clark, The Globe and Mail, April 28th, 2016

This was supposed to be the political bargain: a pipeline to tidewater in exchange for a climate-change plan. Both Justin Trudeau and Rachel Notley sold that deal to voters.

There were always two problems with it. One was that not everyone who supported the politicians bought both sides of the bargain: Many environmentalists, for example, never accepted the pipeline. The other was that opposition to each pipeline is as much about local objections as greenhouse gas emissions, so Mr. Trudeau must spend political capital to deliver one. And the question is where it will cost the most – in B.C. or Quebec?  GRAB THIS ARTICLE

The common belief that new arenas and sports stadiums are slam-dunk wins for their billionaire owners and millionaire players, but big fat goose eggs for the local economy... Well, that could be dead wrong. A report not only suggests the opposite, but says such projects actually boost surrounding real estate values. FOLLOW THIS STORY
