Warren Paulson gave a riveting presentation on Brookfield Residential’ s new development, Seton. The development is poised to become one of Calgary's true urban districts outside of downtown. Named as the new downtown core of the South East, it is a large and ambitious project by Brookfield Residential. The development encompasses 148 hectares which will eventually see one million square feet of retail, 1.5 million square feet of office space, 1,300 multi-family residential units, a hotel, a regional recreation centre and public library, emergency services facility, a high school, an assisted living complex and a nursing home which will all be serviced by the future southeast LRT line.

Ezra Levant - The Tie Between Oil and Real Estate in Western Canada
The oil sands north of Fort McMurray are in the news every day. But what do they have to do with real estate hundreds of miles away in places like Calgary -- or even Toronto? Everything. Because they're the economic engine driving the west, and much of the larger Canadian economy too, from engineering firms in Montreal to the financial markets on Bay Street.
If you're in the real estate business in western Canada, you're actually in the oil business.
Ezra Levant's book, Ethical Oil, makes the liberal case for the oil sands, demonstrating that our oil industry is more environmentally responsible, more peaceful, treats workers better and respects human rights more than any other oil industry in the world. It's a great backgrounder on our most important industry, and a great set of arguments to debate the Greenpeace member in your family!
