I was on the road this week for work, touring parts of Northern Alberta I’d never seen before. That meant I had to catch up on all the happenings when I got home — there was lots for people to talk about this week. I’ve picked my six must-consume posts, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a heck of a lot more content out there in Edmonton this week.
Remember, you can always suggest content for the Edmonton Blog Watch using our handy submission form.
Here’s what I found interesting from last week:
- The Provincial Government released its budget, and it wasn’t good. There’s lots to read out there, and I recommend you start with Dave Cournoyer’s post on it.
- The city announced a plan to annex land to its south. Mack has a great breakdown on what previous annexations have looked like.
- James Leask went to town on critics of the film Zero Dark Thirty. It’s well worth the read — I love James’ rants.
- Trent Wilkie and Elizabeth Budd launched their podcast this week. Check out their first episode.
- Jen Banks wrote about the letter she received from a woman who bullied her in high school. It’s really quite incredible (and Jen links to the letter in her post too).
- Todd Babiak talked a bit about the Make Something Edmonton project (full disclosure: I’m on the advisory committee) and why it’s not your typical city branding exercise.
