Two weeks ago, we had an emboldened new Premier, all-aces at making decisions, controlling message and following strategy. He is certainly accomplished at hiring smart people, several of whom I know and admire greatly. One-by-o...
Edmonton and Uber. Each, young and confident, disruptive ideas.: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN THE EDMONTON JOURNAL – December 17th What a time to be an Edmontonian.

Why I’m Supporting Don Iveson: In tomorrow’s civic election, Don Iveson is my pick for Mayor. First, a disclosure and a couple of comments: Don and his wife Sarah are friends, and I am a part of Don’s campaign team.
