I know I am harping about the mosquitoes, but they are emptying our wonderful parks because you don't dare walk anywhere in Edmonton anymore, if not in fear of your personal safely, it's because the mosquitoes will eat you alive. All we hear is that they are monitoring the traps to see if we have a problem. I say step outside for a minute and you will have the answer. How bad is it?
According to City of Edmonton data, the total mosquito trap count took a giant leap from 492 mosquitoes caught on July 5 to 7,927 on July 12.
Houston, we have a problem! No kidding mayor. They cut the budget by $200,000, but found millions to build an arts gallery. I have lived in Edmonton for over 30 years and have never visited the arts gallery. I have visited the museum, the zoo, Fort Edmonton park and frequently flew out of the now defunct municipal airport, but never wanted or desired to visit the arts gallery, but my taxes have now paid for that waste of space.
Mayor Mandel and his merry band of lefties had better get their heads out of our butts and start actually serving the taxpayers of this city instead of building condos for artists. Get your priorities straight mayor. Oh, and could we please get the "Klondike Days" back, because Capital Ex is just stupid and meaningless.
