Thank you for responding Ditch_Witch – conversation around topics as important as the environment & industry need to happen. All opinions need to be properly expressed and shared in order for the right, and informed, decisions to be made.

Three quick things regarding the upcoming RMWB municipal elections.
- @Jon_Tupper has a Twitter list of candidates that are tweeting. You can find it at http://twitter.com/Jon_Tupper/fort-mcmurray-candidates
- I have done a cursory search for a list of candidates running in the election and cannot find one (RMWB, My McMurray or Fort McMurray Today all with no luck). Does one, in fact, exist? Or should one be created?
- I’ve been told to always have odd numbers, so hence this third bullet. While not strictly related to the municipal elections, there is a local #YMM “Tweetup” on Monday the 13th, 7 p.m. at the Anzac Burger Bar. Seeing some of the folks attending, I’m sure local politics will be a topic of discussion. (search for #YMMTweetup on twitter for more info)

Thanks to those on Twitter for their suggestions as to “Who Should be Tweeting About #YMM and #OilSands“. 13 people or organizations have been identified, including Mayor Melissa Blake, Suncor CEO Rick George and the RCMP, though I’m sure there are a few more floating out there.
This post has been broken down into three areas: Regional, Industry & Could Be Better – find the full list after the jump.

Our cat Moose "helping" me blog - SPCA adoptee
Just a quick post about a fantastic organization in town – the Fort McMurray SPCA. These folks have an upcoming event – the 2010 Furball Gala on Saturday, April 17th. You can find more information on the gala via MyMcMurray.com.
This is just one opportunity to aid this organization in it’s goal to assist needy animals in town. I will be doing a more in-depth post about the SPCA at some point, but I just wanted to help spread the word on the Furball Gala.
Find out how you can help this worthwhile organization, or, you can now view the (all too numerous) adoptable cats or dogs.
