    ^Credit where due. Mayor Don Iveson did a great job stick handling this issue with municipal neighbours (Leduc County, Town of Beaumont) who were fiercely opposed at the outset of the process.

    Edmonton has been growing south very fast. I think it will be nice to have more land for residential development.

    So Edmonton's borders will extend to Highway 19 with this annexation (101 Ave SW?).

    It's crazy to think that Edmonton is as long (N-S) as Calgary now!

    On one hand they spew on about climate change and then annex a massive amount of land to become further sprawled out ROFL.

    Then people complain about the snow removal is not fast enough here, there, and everywhere; the win droves have been how many days... The entitlement is kind of sick imo.
