Economy center stage in April election in Canada's Alberta province

Premier Rachel Notley's left-leaning New Democratic Party won a shock victory in traditionally conservative Alberta in 2015, ending 44 years of conservative rule, but inherited a provincial economy rocked by the collapse of global oil prices.

Best things to do in Calgary

Calgary is a city that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. It doesn’t see nearly the visitor numbers of Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal, and despite being the largest city in Alberta it’s actually not even the provincial capital. The jumping off point for many of the four million annual visitors to Banff National Park, this city of 1.2 million is a cowtown that’s grown up and found its footing among the country’s modern skylines. It’s one that hasn’t forgotten the roots that make it uniq...

from Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, Here are eight NHL players who are consistently lauded as being underappreciated when, in fact, it's well-established that they're incredible.

Oh Hey There Spring Sleep Issues!

How did you all fare during the spring-forward time change last weekend? Every season when the time changes, those of us in Saskatchewan typically sit back and watch – smugly – as our friends across the country struggle (and then post about) the time change. You see, here in Saskatchewan we’re stubborn. We don’t change our clocks, ever. Our struggle is to try and figure out what time it is everywhere else in the country. In the spring, Alberta is the same time as us. In the winter, Manitoba is. ...

Drift Ice Walking in Hokkaido, Japan

Excitement mounts on my bus filled with fellow outdoor adventurers from around the globe as we follow the Shiretoko National Highway north to the Shiretoko Peninsula on the eastern shore of Hokkaido, Japan’s most northerly island. Hugging the shore for miles, the empty highway offers views of drift ice as far as the eye can see. It’s particularly beautiful in the soft glow of a setting sun over the Sea of Okhotsk, a name that conjures up exotic images of bearded, vodka swilling Russians. Watc...

Enbridge pipeline delay spooks traders in long-term Canada crude market

NEW YORK/CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - North American energy traders are reluctant to take up long-term positions on Canadian crude price moves, preferring to stick to spot deals, as uncertainty around government intervention in the market grows following delays to a critical pipeline project. Enbridge Inc unexpectedly said earlier this month its Line 3 oil pipeline will be delayed until the second half of 2020, dealing another blow to the oil-rich province of Alberta, which is struggling with l...

As a result, an enormous number of people are entering the court system without the benefit of counsel, some by choice but most by necessity. However, the court system is difficult to navigate, even for those with an advanced education. Further layers of co...
