So, October. Welcome to the team. Not to start things off on an awkward note or anything, but just in case no one’s told you how this position became available, September—the month here before you—gave notice and left. In the interests of full disclosure, I want to make it crystal clear that we, and I do mean all of us, are not happy about it. Not happy about it at all… You see,
October, the two months that were here prior to you, outperformed themselves. Like, across the board. So, if you’re feeling a little chill in the air (hurtful pun intended), it’s…well… because of you. Good luck, and good chattin’ with you!

So, yeah, we’re not exactly ready for October. But to ease the transition, we’re consoling ourselves with the most satisfying distraction of all—food. We’ve got articles about fishing in Alberta, a feature about the pitfalls of organic labelling laws, tips for decorating the fall dinner table and, of course, some wickedly good recipes for Halloween. And since October also means election season, we’re taking a look back at St. Albert’s mayors, present and past, as well as talking to the candidates on this year’s ballot.

Craving some October, now?

Here’s to a full and satisfying season.
