Service Alberta says natural gas and electricity bills from Pacific Gas and Electric in Washington have been sent via e-mail to some Albertans.

The split personality of Alberta's job juggernaut
The Globe and Mail
It's a well-known truism about economic indicators that one month does not a trend make. That's encouraging news for Canada's job market. If the loss of 46,000 jobs last month were to mark a trend, the country would be in serious trouble. Alberta — the economic powerhouse of the country — also shed nearly 12,000 jobs last month.
