Edmonton Aboriginal Seniors Multicultural Day

Hi Don, I attended this event and the room was quite full of people from various backgrounds. We were entertained by music students from grades four and five at Prince Charles School. They learn to play by ear, not sheet music, then we had bannock and hamburger soup followed by either a story telling session or a quick lesson in beading. As I was leaving they were going to learn how to do some Meits jigs, accompanied by the smaller group of musicians! Quite a fun day. - The Roving Reporter


Discussion Forum
Exchange Of The Day

SUBJECT: Economic Development

* Boston probably realizes that he has won the lottery!! But he won't be telling too many people, if any. If my company hired employees with no accountability, I would be bankrupt.

* Anyone who watches the Global morning news can certainly attest to the fact that they are not even in the same league as the team promoting Redwater.   Kind of sad eh.

* Well, there is that fancy building, (the old bank they remodelled) so they could spend more of our tax dollars to have a nice spot to do nothing in, while we pay, what, eight or nine of them big bucks to do nothing? 

* Can anyone on Council - If any read this site - name one business or commercial entity that Boston and the Economic Development Team has brought to St. Albert?

*@skeptic….I can't think of a single thing. Costco, Walmart, 7-11, etc. all do their own market analysis and then make the decision to set up shop. Boston cannot take any credit.

* Ted:  Here's a plan for the CRB.... create a stable predictable business climate ... and then get out of the way and let the market forces operate.  Of course, this may produce competition among the various communities for private sector enterprises .... which these politicians don't want .... they will create a myriad of regulation which they can then "relax" on particular occasions to promote their crony capitalism.  If you doubt that ... show me what Boston and his crowd have ever accomplished that would not have been accomplished by simply letting the market forces take their course.

The Goldfish Funeral

The Goldfish Funeral
Old Ms. Robinson went out into her backyard to do some gardening when she heard some noise coming from the yard next door.

She peered over the fence and saw that her neighbour's little daughter was digging a hole.

"Sally what are you doing with that shovel?" asked Ms. Robinson.

"My goldfish died, so I'm burying him,” replied young Sally.

"Oh that's tragic. I'm very sorry for your loss. But why are you digging such a big hole for your goldfish?".

"Because your damn cat ate it!"

The 8,000 Calorie English Breakfast

The 8,000 Calorie
A cafe boss has concocted a huge fry-up which has a whopping 8,000 calories and customers have to sign a legal disclaimer before they try to eat it.

Called The Hibernator the dish has 14 times more calories than a regular full English breakfast and no one has managed to finish the humongous meal.

It has more than three times the recommended calorie intake for a man (2,500) and is quadruple the amount doctors advise women to have each day (2,000).

Details in the Express.
