If you don't mind watching a little bit of the video on BNNBloomberg on Aurora, CEO Booth - you get to see how the new towers show in the background of the video - kinda cool. But I wish they had pushed the screen a little over so we could see KR in those views.

I got stuck in the jam caused by that stupid check stop the cops put on the Walterdale bridge.

Cops are so dumb, they put a check stop on a bridge that has two large three laned one way roads that converge... what a nuisance. Caused a massive unnecessary jam and probably caught zero drunk drivers considering there's a massive parking lot at Kinsman any drunk ass would have turned in and left their car overnight.

Yeah, I thought it was a major accident until I got close. They caused quite a traffic jam. Anyways here’s another pic from last night.

That is pretty crazy to have one on a bridge!!

Just as crazy to have one on the Whitemud or Henday.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a cop jump out in front of a vehicle going 120 km an hour.

I've see this 2 times on Whitemud and 2 times on the Henday.

I fired of an email to the Mayor's office and my council representative. Just letting them know how dangerous this is and counter productive to safety.

Now you just need to follow it up with more tall towers, it seems like most Canadian cities build their tallest and sit on it sometimes for decades. Looks like Toronto might finally have bucked the trend as several 300m+ towers are coming up the pipes.

So here's a serious question: do mosquitoes manifest themselves up high? Don't laugh, please. I'm honestly curious. If they didn't, I'd seriously hang out there almost 24/7. One more reason for tall buildings and roof-top decks!

Jesus, Joseph & Mary, that view! No wonder Instagram-happy hipsters love that building. I'd move there in a heartbeat with access to that rooftop deck alone! Glad to see Edmonton will see a ton of copycat structures in the next few years including what I assume will be some version of Tower B @ Ice District, the El Mirador/Knoxville's redux, Grandin Towers and Emerald...
