Capital Ideas, Edmonton’s identity and South Campus LRT | Edmonton Blog Watch

Construction season is wrapping up, as Fall approaches. Except that this past weekend, all indications were that while Fall may be approaching, it can take a hike for a few more weeks. Kicking off this week’s blog watch is a post about construction — sort of — followed by a post about what Fall brings — but maybe not this year — a hockey lockout. And the rest? Solid fucking gold. So read on, my friends, read on!

If you know of any blogs or posts that I should consider in my weekly blog watch, please submit them using this handy form.

Here they are in no particular order:

    Ultimately, I just can’t muster a strong opinion about a train station name change. I understand why it was done and why some people like it. I understand why some people find it silly. At the end of the day, it doesn’t affect the train service in any way and the worst can be said is that it’s benevolently unnecessary. The level of vitriol I’ve seen about it from some people is genuinely surprising to me.

    As for the potential NHL lockout, I’m intrigued that almost all of the blame I’ve seen has been placed on the owners, when the players, as an equal side in the discussions, are to me of a relatively equal responsibility for anything that happens. That said, I can’t really muster sympathy for either side – millionaires arguing with millionaires about different ideas about how rich they should all be is not exactly the Knights of Labor.
