Strong oil, wheat prices buoy Alberta's economy - "A new survey suggests happy days are here again for Alberta's economy with crude oil and grains poised to be the hottest commodities in the coming year. According to the report by Barclays Capital, investors are increasingly bullish on both oil and grain, with prices for both viewed as likely to continue to rise amid geopolitical uncertainty and weather challenges around the world. "The fact of it is agriculture is a good news story today," said Richard Phillips, the head of the Grain Growers of Canada" Good signs in agriculture are good signs (1 comments)
Hope For Japan - 03/15/11 04:25 PM
I spent more than a decade living in Japan, very close to the area where the Tsunami hit. This mid-month newsletter will be a brief one and my message simple. Turn off your T.V. and news radio. Donate some money, time or energy to be in positive action in helping the people of Japan. It does no one any good to be caught up watching the news and worrying about Japan; simply send a positive vibe and any action you can. The collective consciousness of disaster won't help. We need to be positive and move towards helping and healing. I have added (1 comments)
Edmonton Housing Market - 03/07/11 09:42 AM
"Sales have been pretty slow in Edmonton housing market since last spring and although the market wasn’t a hotbed of activity in February, it is showing some life." Read MoreFor my 2 cents worth.... We will continue to see-saw for the better part of 2011. In Alberta, economically we are very strong, emotionally we are fragile. Once we get through the better part of 2011 and really see the strength of the economy continue momentum, Albertans will become emotionally invested and beginning to buy, spend and invest. 2012 should reflect that and continue upwards barring any major world crisis.

Filling a void in the Edmonton hardware world - 03/05/11 06:27 PM
"KMS Tools and Equipment Ltd. is fixing a hole in Edmonton for car buffs, contractors and hardcore home handymen it says was left when the House of Tools chain went under.The family-owned, Coquitlam, B.C.-based company — whose Edmonton presence has been limited until now to a small distribution outlet — will hold the grand opening of its first Edmonton store next week."

Alberta Ready to Rock and Roll! - 03/04/11 10:26 AM
Alberta Emerging As Safe Haven Among Growing Economic Volatility"It will morph into something that will not be very kind to financial assets, but may be kind to Alberta. One solution is to take a shot of Novocain, invest in Alberta, and I have a suspicion you will come out ahead. A second approach is to hold real assets or proxies for real assets, such as TIPS (Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities) and inflation-linked bonds. A third way to approach things is to play by the rules as they're written, which demands being cautious, but I don't mean buying bonds. I mean it is (1 comments)
I'll drink to that! - 03/03/11 12:03 PM
Edmonton could earn more than $6.5 million a year in property taxes, which would help pay off the debt it would incur if it covered one-third of the cost of a downtown arena, city administrators told council Wednesday.Mayor Stephen Mandel said councillors need to make up their minds to ink or tear up the deal within a month. "It's enough already. I think we're going around too many circles and let's make a decision."Anthony Hendlay construction (5 year project), Upgrader in Fort Saskatchewan (3-5 year project), Proposed downtown bridge (3 yrs?), Various LRTs and of course don't forget the possibility of (1 comments)

Again we are reminded about Alberta's unique, geopolitical ties to the Middle East. Likely the violence and unrest in Libya will be noticed to impact oil prices primarily in the short-term. What is subtler is the long-term shift already underway that positions Alberta as a 'safe oil' country. Granted this phrase was coined as a market strategy aimed to take heat off from the environmental bad mouthing that was taking place, but truly Alberta is growing into the 'safe oil' role. And to note many improvements have been put into action to ensure improved environmental responsibility that few other countries would (0 comments)
