    Default 2016 Mayor's State of the City - Thoughts?

    Good luncheon touching on regional co-op, a more efficient City, supportive housing needs/benefits, Downtown's $5.5 billion worth of private and public investment and the intent to make Edmonton 'Canada's Health City' for innovation, R&D, commercialization and delivery.

    A massive crowd of almost 2100 took it in.

    A never ending challenge, complaint, perception...

    it was the edmonton/capital region's health authority when hose were quasi autonomous local entities (before they were all abandoned and rolled into alberta health). this was supposed to deliver efficiencies in addition to expanded excellence (ignoring the fact the only common denominator is always the lowest, never the highest).
