Former Edmonton city councillor and two-time mayoral contender Mike Nickel is planning to make a comeback to council.
The City Centre Airport redevelopment is in jeopardy unless the city reaches a deal to take over land where the province stores and flies its airplanes, an expropriation report says.
Edmonton Ward 2 City Councillor Kim Krushell announced Tuesday she will not seek re-election in October. While making the announcement on Tuesday at 12:15 p.m. in front of City Hall, she said she will be taking a break from civic politics.
The City is spending $441.8-million on 177 road projects in 2013, including major arterial work, bridges and interchanges, intersections, Neighbourhood Renewal projects and enhanced arterial and neighbourhood rehabilitations thanks to the extra funds provided by City Council.

I’m Manmeet Bhullar, Minister of Service Alberta, and I’m very excited to be writing the first blog post for Alberta’s Open Data Portal. In today’s digital landscape, data is a powerful resource - one that can unleash enormous social and economic innovation. From geodata that can be used to create maps, to vital statistics and socioeconomic information that can be used to help in service delivery, to environmental data, the potential for using open data is astounding. By opening up government data, we are helping to make this innovation possible.
“A former CN overpass that was once a vital link across 97th Street to Edmonton’s downtown rail yards is about to bloom again as an important community connection.

“Our business is called Edmonton Paintball Centre (catchy eh?). I’m a strong believer in keeping things simple and obvious. There’s no confusion about what we do. We’re also a destination business, so we’d rather people look for a paintball place in Edmonton, see “Edmonton Paintball Centre” and say “yep, that must be what we’re looking for”. They’re less likely to know many paintball places and say “ah, but XYZ Paintball is so much cooler than Edmonton Paintball Centre”.”
