  1. “In a related story, Alberta Liberal Party leader Kevin Taft wants to make rodeo Alberta’s official sport. Um, no.”

    As a Rodeo fan (I was there on Friday), I’d have to ask what else could be Alberta’s official sport? Rodeo is about the only thing that’s fairly unique to Alberta (what with the Calgary Stampede and the CFR in Edmonton).

  2. Re the 2nd point: That is 1,109 collisions involving injury per 100,000 inhabitants per year (in case any other statisticians except me were wondering about the units 🙂

  3. Hi Mack,

    Just a short note on our article regarding Edmonton’s eating establishments and hoping this clarifies a bit on our numbers…

    Capital Health news Release – “Environmental Health Officers complete more than 26,000 inspections of almost 8,000 food establishments in the region annually.”

    *** Edmonton Journal article “Capital Health closed just five of the region’s 3,600 restaurants last year.”

    http://www.edmonton.ca/accommodation-dining.aspx
    City of Edmonton Article “Edmonton enjoys a diverse blend of cultures, and we have the food to match! With over 1600 restaurants, you can satisfy your taste buds no matter what kind of meal you’re in the mood for.”

    Thanks.
