First, I want to commend the City of Edmonton traffic planners for all of the work that they do. Second, while I am proposing transit changes in this blog post, I recognize that it is not up to one councillor...

It’s only prudent to look at the big picture with any major infrastructure decision. I am first going to discuss inefficiencies in our current LRT system. While I am critical of past decisions, I only make my points so that...
