A moment in praise of Edmonton...

With today’s announcement of a brand new Royal Alberta Museum to be built downtown I must say that Edmonton really has it going on right now! This latest announcement is on the heels of news that the downtown arena also has the green light ( we just need to get Steady Eddy to cough up some coin).

We already have a beautiful city hall; a gorgeous new art gallery and now look forward to a new central museum and a state-of-the-art arena. The Anthony Henday is soon to be completed; Edmonton will enjoy a ring road to take us here and there in record time.

While every city has its pros and cons I truly believe that great things are on the horizon for this city. Experts are predicting an impending boom to start in the next 12-18 months; we have great jobs with lots of opportunity for those that want it, affordable housing, a great arts and culture scene, fantastic summer festivals and now a soon-to-be amazing downtown core with a new arts and entertainment district. I’m really proud of city council for having the vision to invigorate this city with new amenities and cultural institutions.
