In case you are wondering why our roads in Saskatoon are crumbling, check out this PDF which is a spreadsheet of how little the city paid to pave a kilometre of road.  Everyone else was paying over $10,000 for a kilometre of road (Regina was paying $16k…

A business professor examines how bad the worst (and most profitable) airline in America really is. Criticism of his company’s predacious practices doesn’t faze Baldanza. “Predatory means selling at below your cost,” the Spirit CEO told a skeptical…

I love this.  I wish Saskatoon and other cities would have a sense of humour like this.

I flew to Winnipeg on WestJet Encore yesterday.  It was the first time I had ever flown on the Bombardier Q400 NextGen airplane before.  Basically it is an improved Bombardier Dash-8.  The main difference that I noticed was that I didn’t think the plane…

The weekend that was:  On Sunday everyone wanted to do something so I told them to get into the car, we drove to Costco and then I told them that we were going to Moose Jaw.  Instead I drove north to Prince Albert (and no one got it until the turn off…

Not just posting this to make you feel better.  Your dog really does love you. Is doggie love real? While it may seem obvious to you that your dog loves you, there’s been very little scientific data that dogs feel the equivalent of love for their owners.…

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.
