Low power prices in Alberta good news for now, future not as bright
Calgary Herald
There's a price to be paid for everything — even low prices. The relatively low cost of electricity in Alberta may be providing short-term gain for some consumers, but that will surely give way to long-term pain as the prices don't justify the multi-billion dollar expense of building new power plants that will be needed over the next two decades.

A rainbow of roofing
Alberta Construction Magazine
In 1875, Fort Calgary was the city's first public building with a living roof. The prairie sod soaked up rainwater, kept the fort cooler in the summer, and trapped in heat in the winter. While it's been around for 150 years, green — or living — roofing is a trend that's been slow to develop. Alberta also hasn't seen a rush towards white (reflective) or blue (stormwater collecting) roofing, either, despite the industry's push to become more environmentally sustainable.
