Talking about COVID and the impacts on the TELUS World of Science Edmonton w/ Alan Nursall!
Technical difficulties! Here is the second part…
In this discussion I had the opportunity to sit down with Reetu Schaaf and learn more about what they are doing in the Inglewood community.
The word “unprecedented” has been thrown around a lot lately. I’m not sure if that helps or makes things worse. There is no question that we need to take this seriously. Sometimes, I find myself getting overwhelmed by the idea of an “unprecedented global pandemic.” It certainly has an ominous sound to it.

On March 12 at Kathleen Andrews Transit Garage, Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) announced their unique gender-based approach to further enhance transit safety and security, with a focus on women and girls.
ETS will be one of the first transit agencies in North America to use gender-based analysis plus (GBA+) to enhance safety and security for riders. This tool looks at how different genders and diverse people experience policies, programs and initiatives. ETS will also be connecting directly with community groups and agencies, like the Women’s Advocacy Voice of Edmonton (WAVE) and the ETS Advisory Board, to better understand root causes of safety concerns, particularly for women and girls.Read more
Over the past few years, my colleagues on Council and I have heard an overwhelming request from communities asking that we look into lowering speed limits in residential neighbourhoods.
As a result of the feedback from many residents, discussion, research from administration, and because Edmonton is a Vision Zero City, Council is deliberating on whether or not to change speed limits in neighbourhoods to 40km/h throughout the entire City so that every community can become safer or lowering speed limits in the city’s Core Zone to 30km/h. We are considering these decisions because we want to use all the tools in our toolbox to keep road users safe, no matter the method they interact with the road.Read more
The issues around traffic safety are coming before council again in February. Safety will be at the center of this discussion and it is important that we are all aware how very complex it is. We have heard from residents consistently that safety in neighbourhoods is important.Read more
Winter is in full swing which means the Holiday season is upon us and we are knocking on the door of the New Year! It’s an exciting season!
But, once the hustle and bustle of the holiday shopping has died down, once we’ve recovered from the chaos of Black Friday, holiday parties, and in-laws, what do we do with our time?
