  • C2E - powered by YEG TEL

    C2E - powered by YEG TEL

    YEGTEL is now a key partner in the C2E domain. I must admit the logo is a bit of a throwback! As you notice by the banner, C2E is now hosted by a local company. Having our servers in Canada again has a definite advantage as the previous set up was in Seattle. Patriot act is one, payments in CAD is another... Max at YEGTEL approached me while I was laid up in the hospital, and demonstrated his company's desire to partner. It took some time to make this happen as I knew the upgrade was going t...

  • Edmonton’s future needs fixing; 16-year-old has suggestions

    Edmonton’s future needs fixing; 16-year-old has suggestions

    Hi my name is Logan Lehune. I’m 16-year-old student at McNally High School. I would like to give my take on the state of Edmonton and its future. I am very passionate about Edmonton and its future and I am very actively involved with the city to try to do my part to make it better. But I feel that if Edmonton does not change fast we will fall behind on the global stage. Darwin said: "It is not the strongest who survive, but the ones who most adapt to change.” And the world is changing ra...

    Edmonton Ward 6 Candidate > Bryan Kapitza

    New Ideas

    We all know of the challenges that our city faces: urban sprawl, unresponsive government, a deteriorating downtown.
    The citizens of Edmonton expect their elected representatives to be offer innovative and visionary solutions to these problems.

    Here are a few ideas that I see as having significant benefit to our communities.

    Property Tax Reform Presently our taxes are based on the value of our land and on the improvements on that land, i.e.,...

    I Stand for Law and Order and Fiscal Responsibility

Several years later I obtained a Law Degree from the University of British Columbia. I have been a Chemical Analyst - Labor Relations Manager and contract negotiator, for both Multi National and Crown Corporations, Prosecutor and Defense Council. In my view the city administration is a nightmare and needs a turn around...

  • Edmonton Public School Board Trustee Candidate for Ward C - Christopher Spencer

    Old Green Grovenor is going into politics. I’m running for public school board trustee in Ward C, which includes most of west-central Edmonton. Elections for this office typically receive little media coverage and often voters won’t complete the education part of the ballot. Those who do vote sometimes make their selection based on name recognition, not policy. For example, the candidate with the alphabetical order advantage, thus being listed first among the nominees, is about 20 per cent mo...

  • Edmonton is too “sexy"

    Edmonton is too “sexy"

    Edmonton is too "sexy" Edmonton the “Sexual Assault Capital of Canada,” is quite different from our welcome to Edmonton “City of Champions” catch phrase but this beautiful city’s dirty little shame took this title in 1975. With the highest sexual assault rate per capita, something had to happen. A year later, the sexual assault centre of Edmonton (SACE) began. Its mission statement says it all, the centre exists “to empower individuals affected by sexual abuse and assault, and to emp...

  • Edmonton Design Committee – is perfection attainable?

    Edmonton Design Committee – is perfection attainable?

    The Edmonton Design Committee was formed in 2005 to provide advice to council on selected development permit applications that fall within specific geographic areas of the city. While the committee provides advice, it is council that makes all decisions – and council can choose whether or not to take account of the committee’s opinion. Committee members are a diverse group with representatives from different professions. The committee is guided by its “Principles of Urban Design” that...

  • The Edmonton Citizen Panel: An experiment in democracy

    The Edmonton Citizen Panel: An experiment in democracy

    Political life is all around us. From the playground to the factory floor, and from the hockey arena to the art gallery. We are all engaged in working out the question of, “who will make the decisions – big and small.” But the push and pull of political life arises from another question, perhaps the most difficult and durable question of all for communities and societies. It began with Aristotle’s Politics and has persisted for centuries. It’s the question of democracy, of “who will...

    Edmonton’s Best Kept Secret – Chinese Bilingual Program

    Edmonton’s Best Kept Secret – Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program By Wei Wong Who would have believed 25 years ago that learning Chinese would take root and flourish in a Canadian prairie city, when cities like Toronto and Vancouver are the choice destinations for Chinese immigrants and have larger Chinese speaking populations. From relative obscurity in the early 1980s to a headline proclaiming the “Best Chinese Language Program” in 2006, Edmonton’s Chinese Bilingual Program has becom...

    New arena deal fair for city, on to next steps

    Plans to build a new arena in downtown Edmonton have taken a significant step forward with City Council’s approval of an agreement framework between the City and the Katz Group. The framework outlines the principles both parties will use to finalize the terms of a master agreement. Council has given City administration the mandate to work with the Katz Group and other stakeholders to make the downtown arena become a reality. The framework agreement addresses the funding, design, building an...
