As far as the regional Calgary plant at least thats good for Alberta, if not for Edmonton. So Edmonton public $ going out to feed Quebec and Calgary then. I feel so much better about that.
We aren't forced to take lowest bidder unless that's how the bid is setup.


The reason it's been outsourced is because the companies in Edmonton aren't being forced to work for so cheap. Why you might ask, because they have enough work in this economy. It's actually probably a good sign that things are being outsourced.
