  1. – I’m psyched that Cactus Club will be opening in WEM!
    – I can’t believe a panhandler can make so much. I was beginning to have sympathy for homeless people when I started reading the Edmonton Journal series on the problem of homelessness. I never give panhandlers money anymore because once I have a guy $2, and he asked me for more! The nerve.
    – I like the new LRT cars because they are less screechy than the old ones.

  2. Mack, mayor Steve just cost residents, in Strathcona County over $500K. Fees spent to defend the county’s development plan that Edmonton opposed. Edmonton lost the appeal. So much for cooperative regional government.

    Stephen has also refused to implement bus service to the Airport. Edmonton Airport coughed up lots of dough, as did Leduc. Stephen won’t sign off.

    Playing tough bully short sighted politics on regional planning is not condusive a cooperative regional effort.

  3. Bruce – I admit I’m not up-to-speed on all the issues you’ve mentioned, but I know there are two sides to every story. Maybe someone will ask him about the things you listed this week on the forum!
