Edmonton Notes for 5/15/2010

Here are my weekly Edmonton notes:

Demolition of the old Mayfair hotel started this week. It’ll make way for the Mayfair Village:

Today marked the start of the City Market Downtown for 2010! More than 13,000 people had walked through by 12:30pm. You can see more photos here.

UPDATE: Completely forgot to mention this: the provincial government has publicly endorsed Edmonton’s bid to host EXPO 2017.

  1. Part of the problem with the library (in my eyes) is it’s hours. I was really surprised that it doesn’t open until 1pm on Sundays. There’s always a line up outside the main doors at lunchtime on Sundays, people waiting to get in. I didn’t feel amazingly comfortable hanging around there.

    Moving the doors is stupid and a complete waste of money (just like the City paying anyone to do anything to do with Second Life).
