Posted on February 8, 2017

We cannot deny the technology behind autonomous vehicles (also referred to as AVs or self-driving cars) is something many of us have only dreamed of, so why are some people afraid of them?

Lethbridge City Transit Failure

Lethbridge City Transit – The Great Little Public Transit System That Isn’t Great

Posted on January 3, 2017

In the Lethbridge Herald article published on December 31, 2016, University of Lethbridge’s President Mike Mahon mentioned parking issues and communication problems, but he failed to talk about transit. Considering their record on transit, it’s no surprise. When Students are in Need, ULeth & City of Lethbridge Do Nothing In September, I purchased a bus pass. Unfortunately, other students weren’t so lucky. Many are single parents who can’t afford additional transit costs or the time transit requires. Some were forcedRead More

U of L Communication

Communication: The University of Lethbridge Problem No One Wants to Talk About

Posted on January 2, 2017

In the Dec 31, 2016 Lethbridge Herald article, President Mike Mahon of the University of Lethbridge didn’t just bring up parking. He also revealed that the U of L has a communication problem. “The parking issue also highlighted a need for more work on communication within the university…” Actually, that isn’t the problem. The University of Lethbridge’s communication problem is simple. They don’t have any communication. You can’t work on something you don’t have.
