Hey, just because Valentine’s Day is over doesn’t mean we don’t love you, Edmonton. We’ll try to keep showing it.
On a more serious February 14 note, it’s a day to march and remember murdered and missing women.
A dangerous offender hearing is on to decide whether a man who attacked Edmonton bus driver Tom Bregg should be sent to prison without a release date.
An Edmonton police officer had her house burned down, and will likely end up testifying as a victim of crime instead of just an investigating officer.
99 Street and Scona Road is going to be one of the largest construction closures of 2011. So, you probably want to avoid that, starting in May.
Let’s see what else is going on…
Alberta Health Services says more hospital beds have improved emergency room wait times 20 to 20 percent. Or was it 2 to 3 percent…
Alberta’s political parties say post-secondary education could do better and have more funding, but they can’t agree on how that’s going to happen.
The U of A is getting ready to send its court sports (like basketball and volleyball) to the South Campus, so that means 50 years of history have a final chapter at its main gym.
Looks like Alberta Progressive Conservative MLA Doug Griffiths is next into the race to replace Premier Ed Stelmach. I wonder where 630CHED/iNews880 learned of this news… (Check that first Griffiths link for a possible answer.)
The discussion around the way that story was presented was whether a newsroom claiming to have “learned” something meant they were trying to pass themselves off as the breaker of said news to their audience or if they were slyly admitting to their audience they weren’t first with the news but just didn’t disclose its source. Either way it’s old school news habits when a newsroom tries to pretend it’s the only source of information around. Your audience is smarter than that.
Maybe this post about sportswriters jumping over each other to post team lineups makes the point even better than I do.
Maybe fancier VLTs will get you gambling a little more. But totally within your limit, of course. Of course.
You want to go to a meeting and tell Shaw what you think about usage based Internet rates? You better be one of the lucky 80. The rest of us can phone and e-mail our rants.
South Edmonton Common is getting a Lowe’s. Yay.
