    I also agree that it would add so much to these projects if they just paid more attention to the details, i.e. the fixtures, the ceilings, the floors. Yes, it all costs money, but the little things...

    The old museum had its charms, but it could barely fit the new exhibits anymore. I wish they could have spent a good $100 to $200 million to enhance this one further, but that just wasn't in the...

    Hilarious that they want to spend millions on this so-called 'river walk' when they can't even maintain the current parks properly.

    The best they can come up with is practically "The NDP is doing it wrong! We would implement the carbon tax this way instead!"

    Pretty nonsensical imo.

    Ultimately you want people to see the exhibits. Let's face it, a lot of people aren't going to go to an Aboriginal museum, not because they have anything against Aboriginals but because most people...

    Wonderful. Might be a great idea to revamp our lrt signalling, moving all those people around for this large scale event.

    I don't really understand this. BC has had a carbon tax for years. They've already sacrificed more than Sask has in that regard and they don't even have oil. Furthermore, how does a Quebec company...

    Right wing governments give our tax dollars to industry all the bloody time. Spare me the hypocrisy!

    IMO, the main problem is that so many organizations - cities, companies, etc. - like to think that design work should be done for them gratis. Almost like it should be a privilege and an honor for...

    I was driving this morning on 106 st. north of 34 ave. Used to be 50 and now it's 30 almost everywhere, which is completely ridiculous. I mean, there are already fences around those schools/fields....

    These things need better regulation. So many have potholes the size of craters for literally years on end. Yet the city does nothing. No, it's only private home owners the city loves to pick on....

    I don't think they should rescind the honor, but it was just dumb to give it in the first place.

    I hope that citizens realize that Edmonton is an evolving, young, inclusive and active city that needs a more balanced modal offering. If you incentivize the vehicle over other healthier, less...

    What I don't get either is that giving this guy an honory degree is like giving Meryl Streep another Oscar nom. The guy has almost 30 now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Suzuki#Honorary_degrees ...

    Hilarious. They did nothing of the sort. All they did was make a sterile-looking place with no character. No wonder Mordecai Richler made fun of us.

    I like saving unique older buildings where possible. The city doesn't do it near enough. But why are people treating the coliseum like it's some kind of architectural marvel? It's more like a...
