    Calgary & Alberta Economy

    I hope you're correct, and it's always good to hear a bit of optimism these days. Can you elaborate on what a robust and diversified economy would look like in a Calgary context? What type of companies and industries could be brought here? What type of companies and industries could be grown...

    Calgary | Irvine | 23.47m | 6s | Torode | NORR

    That's disgusting. The architect and developer should be shot.

    Calgary & Alberta Economy

    Yeah...I agree. It's good to support local. But once again we to do something or export something of value. I think you're right to an extent. It's unwise to tie ourselves to a commodity that fluctuates in price so much. Although, I'm still unsure what we as a province can do to besides Oil...

    Calgary & Alberta Economy

    You're not wrong. Alberta's economy was built on a commodity which has experience sharp price fluctuations over the past 20 years. The results are telling as we've experienced boom and bust. Here's the problem. We need to do something, or produce something of value and export it. As Darwink...

    Calgary | Green Line LRT | ?m | ?s | Calgary Transit

    You're right. "Building it properly" is a vague term. I'll try again. I'd like to see the LRT system avoid conflicts with key at-grade crossings. These crossing would see a high number of daily vehicle and pedestrian volume. Ideally key intersections would be grade separated. A bad example of...

    Calgary | Green Line LRT | ?m | ?s | Calgary Transit

    I agree with your points. The NC LRT will unfortunately be delayed if the Green Line's northern terminus is Eau Claire. However, there's a limited amount of funds available. It's better to build the LRT properly and not cut corners. Sometimes you have to cut off the finger to save the hand.

    Yeah, that'd be nice touch! I always thought that this 60's building would make a wicked restaurant/ brew pub: https://www.google.com/maps/@51.0425292,-114.0946398,3a,75y,43.95h,85.2t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s4z_tZ_LD4Pu3i2cFo41sUQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 With the parking lot being converted into a...

    Calgary | Green Line LRT | ?m | ?s | Calgary Transit

    The city changed the route alignment from 12th ave to 11th ave, they scrapped the trenched station at 16th ave and they still haven't figured out how to cross Bow River. All these changes came very late in the game.

    Calgary | Green Line LRT | ?m | ?s | Calgary Transit

    Yeah, I hate to admit it, but I think JonnyCanuck is right. It's a shame. The project should have been started in 2018. The UCP wouldn't be able to pull the plug...or if they did, I'd like to think it would come with severe political ramifications. I kind of blame city council too. They never...

    Calgary & Alberta Economy

    In 80's and 90's when China was industrializing and western countries were de-industrializing and losing manufacturing jobs, the theory espoused by western elites was that, as China became more wealthy, they would move towards a more "democratic" and "liberal" country and society. Obviously...
