    Great sense of teamwork and cooperation. I like how they exemplified that other provinces have granted City Charters, and with Alberta as a power-house, why do we not have one yet. Great to see harmonious dedication on this front.

    I listened to As It Happens last night. That was the second time they had the two mayors on the program. As It Happens seems to regard them as the new superstars of Canadian civic politics, and rightfully so. Both of them are so darned articulate and speak with obvious intelligence. How wonderful!!!

    The best thing about it was each mayor talking about each others cities.

    Calgary mayor talking about Edmonton.. Edmonton Mayor talking about Calgary!

    FINALLY!!! TEAM WORK!!

    “It’s the first time somebody is mayor without having the establishment on his side,” said Marciano.
    Depending on how you define establishment, Iveson also had some heavy hitters on his side. John Day, Doug Goss, and Eric Young come to mind. And others like Irv and Diane Kipnes covered their bases by donating to both campaigns.

    ...exactly...let's not gloss this over...

    It is not abnormal for donations to span multiple candidates to cover bases...

    ..so, can we please stop with this hyperbole that Don's election is somehow a youth revolution and anti-establishment? Please?

    ...the reality is...out of the candidates that bothered to run...he was the overwhelming choice. Period.

    Can we get onto business now?

    “It’s the first time somebody is mayor without having the establishment on his side,” said Marciano.
    Patti Mastuka, former adviser to retiring Mayor Stephen Mandel, said Iveson “had an edge” on people power with his team of 400 to 500 volunteers.

    But mostly he reflected Edmonton’s new confidence and “the spirit of building this city” that voters were looking for, she said.

    “The city has a very different self image than it did nine years ago (before Mandel) — they’re confident about what a great city it is,” she added.

    Iveson support spanned all wards and ages, election numbers show

    ...don’t call Monday’s election a victory for the youth vote. Poll-by-poll results from city hall show that Edmonton’s seniors were hip to the generational wave rolling across new suburbs and older communities. The old folks also cast their ballots for Iveson by a wide margin in special polling stations.
    Mulling over Iveson’s victory, David Maclean of the conservative Alberta Enterprise Group, says he figures Iveson was ahead going out of the gate and “that surprised a lot of people,” including many in the city’s Conservative establishment who supported Leibovici.

    The early lead allowed Iveson to run a positive campaign and put forward an agenda that resonated with voters, he said.

    Soon, Leibovici was simply side-swiped “by a real youth movement going on, and it’s dangerous for any politician over 60,” said MacLean.
