Airdrie, will start its first public bus service with Calgary this fall. The community of 38,000 will use the Intercity Express, with three $700,000 long buses Airdrie council has purchased.

Putting the four R's (Reduce, Recycle and Recover) this resource into action is what waste management is all about. This generation has largely embraced the principles of recycling and Airdrie , Alberta is on-board with this generation.

I have been getting lots of calls regarding a Mandatory 10% down payment that our Minister of Finance, James M. Flaherty spoke of in the fall. It has not yet filtered down to the lenders or Canada Mortgage and Housing (CMHC) in any way., but if he chooses restrict mortgage financing to 90% the banks and CMHC will certainly have to follow. I talked to our representative at CMHC this morning and he says CMHC does not seem to be encouraging this in any way but they are certainly increasing the criteria (3 comments)
