    Well worth reading:


    Edmonton developer, philanthropist Sandy Mactaggart reshaped our city | Edmonton Journal


    "...He was co-founder of the Citadel Theatre and the Edmonton Art Gallery.

    He served as chancellor of the University of Alberta, and, for a time, as chair of the university’s board of governors.

    He was one of Edmonton’s most generous philanthropists.

    And he was a developer and entrepreneur, a city builder, both literal and metaphoric.

    He was Sandy Mactaggart. And his death this week, at the age of 89, should be an occasion for us to reflect on how different Edmonton might have been if he had not adopted this city and made it his home...."

    RIP

    One of the true Edmonton greats. Connected with so many endeavors and did so much in one life to further what Edmonton now has and that Edmontonians can enjoy.

    I think theres cases where its hard to distinguish the acts of philanthropy with how a person lived their lives in general. Great people still walk among us. Albeit one has departed.
