CBC News – Consumer Life – CBC fights Bell, Shaw over local TV.
From the article: “In Alberta, it’s a particularly grievous situation for Edmonton Oilers fans who can only watch their provincial rivals the Calgary Flames, if they are Bell subscribers.”
Consumer protection is something Edmonton and the rest of Alberta could use a bit more of. There is too many recalls all the time on too many different products. Cars, food products, baby cribs, pet foods, childrens toys, etc. These recalls usually happen because corporations put profits before consumer safety. Corporations licensed by the Governments.

If there was a need for 500 more police in Edmonton, thats what it would be for. According to statistics Canada, crime is down in Edmonton. 500 more police checking out all products coming into Edmonton’s stores would probably result in only quality goods been sold to Edmontonians at reasonable prices.
500 more police on the roads , sounds a bit like a police state. 500 police crusing around, when crime is down, sounds like a recipe for disaster as usually occures in a police state. Afganistan is an example of such a system where police are everywhere, and 500 more are probably needed. As is other parts of the world.

This is not such a place, this is Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where we embrace Democracy, frown upon military police states with 500 police on every corner making sure people are carry ing thier clipboard in the proper way, and that it does not have any words upon it inflamitory to the police states opinion. 500 police on the streets when crime is down, only adds to problems as police are human just like every one and occasionally make mistakes. 500 more police does less than nothing for poverty, it takes away money and resources that could help solve poverty. 500 more police does less than nothing for the homeless as once again, it takes away resources that could go towards solving the homeless problem. And 500 police does less than nothing for the environment, just as it does less than nothing for the tax bill. 500 police actually makes poverty worse as the cost raises taxes and forces those on fixed incomes to do with less.

Edmonton already  has a higher number of police to people ratio than most other cities.

Change the green team into the crime team. Have the police in schools get provincial wages for teaching law and order, rules and regulations. or just get them out of schools all together.

Give the actually officers more schooling, the means to serve and protect, the ability to serve and protect and make sure they are there to serve and protect, like they mostly try to do, and perhaps the people will see that they are there to serve and protect. That is how one deals with police issues and help reduce crime.

The best solution though is free food, free schooling, free housing, and good high paying quality jobs with adequate medical services and government that is there for the people.
