The truth about Macleod MP

I am a self proclaimed political nerd. I started my addiction with the Rutherford show on QR 77, and then escalated it to running home at lunch every day so I could watch Question Period.

Refreshing walk not so refreshing

Last week when a chinook blew through southern Alberta I thought it was an opportune time to start walking to work again. Really, I thought there would be no better way to start my day than a nice brisk walk in the cool morning air.

Water pipeline close to reality for Cayley

The existing water plant in Cayley has reached the end of its life span and either needs to be replaced or a pipeline to High River installed.
