Ok, bear with me; working through an idea.
The @CityofEdmonton has identified that to institute the #biketransportation infrastructure needed to meet climate crisis, human well-being & municipal tax affordability goals, will cost ~ $200M. But only $100M was budgeted. /1st
So we have a shortfall of $100M over the next budget cycle (2023-26).
Car-dedicated infrastructure (lanes, parking, parking lots) is pricey to the municipal budget, & is always inadequate: it induces demand & increases risk, noise, pollution rather than easing congestion, etc. /2
Bicycle infrastructure is cheaper to maintain, & induced demand makes for reduced risk, noise, pollution.
So it's in the city budget's best interest to increase bicycle use while reducing car use.

But by what mechanisms? /3

2. Here's @nickduffell incredibly powerful & uncomfortable 1994 documentary 'The Making of Them', which followed young boys heading off to boarding school. Look out for the repressed emotional distress.
3. Here's the incredibly powerful & uncomfortable 2019 animation from @tony2gammidge 'Norton Grim and Me'. He explores the feelings of being sent off to school age 7. I feature Tony's work in my book #TigersAndTeddies.

BREAKING: Pastor Artur Pawlowski was just arrested as he landed in Canada after a 4-month tour in America. He warned Americans the perils of a Socialist country & the religious persecution leaders are facing. Please keep him in prayer! He faces 6 years for baptizing his daughter.
Pastor Artur could have just had his wife and kids move to America, but he decided he would go back and face his giants as he refused to close his church and stop feeding 1,000 people weekly (which included feeding the homeless, which is a CRIME in Canada). #Courageous
To donate to Pastor @ArturPawlowski1’s legal fund, you can here: He’s already incurred hundreds of thousands of fines for feeding the homeless and keeping his church open. This is a sick world we live in!

0/n: #RamRajya has been an inspiration for millions of Indians since time immemorial. Essentially referring to the rule of Lord Rama, ~7000 years ago, it broadly refers to a utopian stage of society with perfect systems and people.
1/n: Despite being an ancient concept, it has been invoked umpteen times. From SantTukaram to Mahatma Gandhi, to most recently, @narendramodi, the imagery around #RamRajya has continued to inspire India's consciousness for millenniums. In this thread, we explore what is RamRajya?
2/n: To explore, I explored #ValmikiRamayana, #TulsidasRamcharitmanas, and various commentaries on Ramayana and as a student of Governance, was pleasantly surprised at the details that the texts offer on various elements of society. The next tweets cover the elements of #RamRajya

This is #TooGoodNotToShare..

We spend the best years of our lives waiting for a #Miracle when the miracle is #Life itself

We wait for approval,we wait for promotion,we wait for the bonus,we wait for freedom,we wait for a revelation AND in all this,we forget to live
Today, I make this promise to myself. No more waiting. I will live each day like it was the last day of my life. And I will live each day like it is the first day of the rest of my life with no regrets of the day that was..
I will be #Courageous.
Not courageous like a #Soldier under fire, but courageous enough to not wait. Courageous enough to #Live every moment to the hilt.

#Courageous enough to know that the only losses I should fear are the loss of #Love and #Respect, for myself & for those around me.
