As some of you know, I have this weird project where I want to photograph and document all of the important buildings in Saskatoon.  Over the years I have made some significant process in doing that and today with the weather nicer and it being a Sunday,…

From The Guardian “It may well be the case that democracy and capitalism, which at moments in their youth were allies, cannot live together once both have come of age.” So wrote the historian EH Tawney in 1938. Tawney’s prescient quote could well apply to…

Mark lost his cell phone on the weekend.  He is pretty careful with it but he was out with Wendy running some errands and it went missing.  He was devastated.  I wasn’t convinced the dog didn’t eat it and hid it somewhere but whatever the case, he needs a…

It is my birthday today.  I was awoken to the sounds of my kids and Wendy coming into my room with presents.  I had plans to open the gift but Oliver made me very aware of what they were.  Wendy gave me a Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens.  Mark gave me an old…

Can you imagine some select streets in Saskatoon doing this? If you aren’t a traffic engineer or an urban planner, the word woonerf probably looks like a typo, or maybe the Twitter handle of whoever runs marketing for Nerf (woo!). But you might want to…

But just in case, Saskatoon leaves Parcel Y undeveloped Until recently, however, there had been no formal analysis of the skyscraper curse. A new paper by Mr Barr, Bruce Mizrach and Kusum Mundra (all of Rutgers) investigates Mr Lawrence’s musings in…

The long term impact of Saskatoon’s planning and development path I GREW UP in Los Angeles, the city by the freeway by the sea. And if there’s one thing I’ve known ever since I could sit up in my car seat, it’s that you should expect to run into traffic…

So you remember earlier this winter when I was super sick for a couple of months?  Yeah that was fun.   The doctor gave me a powerful antibiotic to kill what it was that was killing me.  It was so powerful they were worried about the side effects as it…

Wendy noticed him as we walked by the CIBC last night.  Who knows why he isn’t at a shelter, whether it be full, he was kicked out or he couldn’t handle sleeping with 20 other men in cramped quarters.

Working hard to make Saskatoon a better city to live in.
Introduction
Since 1995, I have been trying to help people.  Whether that is helping the answer some of the deeper questions in life or just trying to make sure the homeless have a safe place to sleep that night, it's what I do with a lot of passion.

I have managed homeless shelters, launched programs, and now am working at making Saskatoon a better place to live by building quality affordable housing.  How much fun is that?

I have an obscure weblog, I write a little bit, some of that appears every Monday in The StarPhoenix and you can listen to me on 650 CKOM's Afternoon Show roundtable.
Bragging rights
I once hung up on former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney because I thought it was a crank call.
