A SAP Editorial

Now THIS Is A Smart City

stat

Unlike St. Albert where buses cruise the city all day for the most part empty, the Ontario town of Innisfil has solved their public transportation needs by partnering with Uber.

You can read details of the deal they made with Uber
here.

Now if only our council could live up to its ‘smart city’ claim and do the same here. Imagine ridding ourselves of most of our bus fleet and the hefty expense to keep it running.

uber
Simply keep enough buses to meet the needs of the Edmonton routes and get rid of the rest. That would leave the only buses on the roads the ones during rush hour to the university and other Edmonton stops where they operate at capacity.

Gone would be those empty buses that irritate so many tax payers as they run around town without any passengers in them all day.

Can a so-called ‘smart city’ suddenly become smart? In St. Albert’s case we think not, but we can suggest they investigate the opportunity. A combined system would be a win-win for local resident’s pocketbooks.

The Government Guys

The Government Guys
Two government maintenance guys, were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A woman walked by and asked what they were doing.

"We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole”, they said, "But we don't have a ladder."

The woman said, "Hand me that wrench out of your toolbox." She loosened a few bolts, then laid the pole down.

She then took a tape measure from their toolbox, took a measurement and announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches" and walked away.

One shook his head and laughed. "Well, ain't that just like a 'Miss-know-it-all' woman?" he said. "We need the height and she gives us the length!"

They are both still working for the Notley NDP government.

Shifting Sands: Vanished Irish Beach Makes Comeback 30 Years On

Shifting Sands
A County Mayo beach that disappeared more than 30 years ago has made a miraculous comeback.

Dooagh beach on Achill Island in the west of Ireland, was washed away in 1984 after storms hit the area.
But in April, hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sand were dumped back on the coastline during a freak tide, bringing the beach back to its former glory.

Thousands of tourists visit the area every year and having a new 300-metre long beach has delighted residents.

More on the BBC.
