Thread: Provincial Super Lab - South Campus

    I dont recall the ndp saying there would be huge disasters, however its pretty premature to declare anything at this point, I would think...? Considering the superlab wouldnt be finished for many years from now had construction been allowed to continue... the net effects of cancellation are still yet to be seen

    ^^Who to believe?

    A recommendation from the Health Quality Council of Alberta detailing the need for state of the art centralized medical laboratory services in Northern Alberta, or a Dynalife press release masquerading as an Journal news story?

    Little premature don't ya think? They were building for future needs not for current ones. Of course the skies not gonna fall when they cancel something that wouldn't be done construction for at least another couple years.

    Anyone who understands construction timeliness and the concept of planning ahead would realize the disaster is not going to happen now, but in the future, in a few years.

    What kind of astro-turfing nonsense is this? The contract with Dynalife is not taxpayer friendly, and the combination of a lack of consolidated services and increased usage will lead to a strain on the system. Can Dynalife meet those needs? Probably, but it will be outside the scope of the current agreement, and we'll pay dearly for it.

    Actually... it was to post something that I had not seen before that was relevant.

    Don't worry, Keneney will revive the project as a campaign promise just before the election, but at twice the cost...

    Nah, he'll expand the existing lab in Calgary and ship everything there for testing that would have been done here. We'll still do the stuff downtown that they're currently doing but the more advanced tests (with higher trained and paid technicians) will head south on the QE2.

    But don't worry. A handful of people from the Manulife podium will pick up a sandwich at lunchtime. And isn't that what we should really be concerned about when it comes to healthcare?


    And don't forget, this also helps keep the podium as we like it, lacking a tower and street activation.

    In the coming apocalypse of UCP austerity, this cancellation is just an amuse bouche.

    Are you admitting that your lobbying efforts on behalf of the DBA are actually just for show?

    Interesting.

    Anyone else seem to notice that when the Premier of Ontario cut funding to build ANOTHER University in Ontario the Federal Government stepped in and provided the funding, but when the new Premier of Alberta cancels a super-lab that can benefit not only Edmonton but Northern Alberta we hear crickets from the Feds? Its too bad it was cancelled, the design is impressive and would have been a nice addition to the area..... oh well, chalk it up on the list of 'almost for Edmonton'

    Healthcare is a provincial responsibility. Universities can have some federal funding, such as the Nanotech lab at U of A. The feds can't just step in and build a lab or a hospital.

    there's lots of ways for the federal government to participate in or withdraw from providing federal funding for health care...

    But that story isn't about directly financing a lab now, is it? It's about the Feds and funding for healthcare for the military which is a federal responsibility.
