    You guys, leave the poor feds alone. Can't you see we just don't have as much money as some of those "have" countries, like Belgium and Kazakhstan?

    But where did the feds get the idea that...

    My thoughts exactly, Highlander. Mature neighbourhood homes are being underutilized by seniors who raised a family, and now occupy more space than they really need. Seniors deserve the full support...

    This is excellent. I have had the opportunity to meet with Scott, and I have followed his articles religiously over the last several years. He is an expert on civic affairs, and I could not agree...

    Mandel is an excellent mayor, and he has my vote for sure.

    I just hope, though, that the City is able to fix that massive carbon monoxide leak that seems to be affecting the other candidates,...

    I think this is because we are a more enlightened crowd than most. We realize that our taxes are driven by our urban form, and that a little extra tax and forethought now will save us big $$$ in the...

    This is the problem: You grow up in a mature neighbourhood with your parents. You move out, and go live downtown. They stay there. Then you grow up some more, get married, and want to have kids. You...

    I have long been a fan of a greenbelt around the city, or a line drawn in the soil that says "you cannot develop past this point." But I now believe that a moratorium on new school construction would...

    Now that the petition has been delivered, will we have a nice reprieve from all this airport noise, at least until the signatures are scrutinized (They've already failed MY scrutiny!)? I'm glued to...

    Without a doubt, Andy8244. I believe that fuel is dramatically undertaxed, when you consider the externalities its production and consumption produce. We should be compensated for the costs we bear...

    Thanks, The_Cat for posting this article. I enjoyed it when I read it, and I could not agree more that Edmonton would, and soon will, benefit from a school of urban planning. While we encounter the...

    Sometimes, for some things, you just need a truck. But most times, a car will do just fine.
    I often hear complaints that the prices of gasoline and diesel are too high, and the taxes on these...

    WayneJ argues that road construction costs less than LRT, and is therefore superior to LRT. But this oversimplified argument misses some key qualitative advantages of light rail transit over ...

    This typpe of architecture has fascinated me for a while too. I have often thought that buildings like these were designed, at least subconciously, to intimidate the public, and convey a sense of...

    I think that the pace of change is occurring reasonably quickly, given the current economic climate. My belief is that the boom that just ended was a serious missed opportunity for downtown...

    I really like this idea, especially for denser areas. I once lived in Europe, and in the building I lived in there was a bakery and a restaurant on the ground level, and one of my neighbours was a...

    When I saw this thread, this is what came to mind for me: the false sense of security that crosswalks can often create. Pedestrians cannot assume that drivers can see them, have seen them, and have...

    Is the sole purpose of education the development of marketable skills? What about citizenship, ethics, analytical and problem solving skills? A sense of the bigger-picture?

    I was really sorry to hear that story, bicycles. It must have been terrifying. When someone does something like this to one of us, they do it to all of us. As far as I know, I have never met you, but...

    Actually, I agree with KC, I don't like monitoring, either. So we should get rid of all the police, all the cameras, and make it illegal to look at other people in public.
