How about that U.S. Presidential election…? Like it, love it or hate it, it was something to behold. With opinions of candidates aside, what an amazing use (or abuse) of media and ‘social clout’ was displayed (pop stars, really?).

If you haven’t seen Idiocracy, this election mirrored elements of it. Nonetheless, change is good. And one thing for certain is that a shift has been made. It may take the next 4 years for it to fully manifest, but the people have voted and have won fairly.

Meanwhile back in Canadian politics… Silence.

Edmonton economy took hit in the fall, expected to rebound in 2017

November 8, 2016

Edmonton’s economy contracted “sharply” last summer, but should improve modestly in 2017, city economist John Rose says.
In an update released Tuesday, Rose found that Edmonton’s 2016 gross domestic product and unemployment rate were worse in the third quarter of the year than he forecast last spring.

Construction and manufacturing were particularly weak.

Activity in these areas stabilized over the last two months and the rest of the economy is slowly growing, so the situation should improve modestly, Rose wrote. Read More Here.


Edmonton real estate market burdened by job losses, stunted growth

'A weaker labour market, slower migration and reduced consumer confidence are tempering demand'

CBC News, Oct 26, 2016

Calgary's unemployment rate is going up, Edmonton's rate is going down. What gives?

By Tracy Johnson, CBC News, Nov 08, 2016

A curious thing is happening in Alberta's job market: While the province as a whole is suffering, with an unemployment rate of 8.5 per cent, Calgary and Edmonton are seeing their fortunes diverge, with Calgary taking the brunt of the downturn.

Two years ago, the two cities had similar unemployment rates of roughly five per cent. Last month, Calgary's rate hit 10.2 per cent, a multi-decade high, while Edmonton is sitting pretty (relatively speaking), with a jobless rate of 6.9 per cent — just below the national average. Read more here.
