Tait's Eight: 8 ways Edmonton can help Calgary

We need to help our neighbors in Calgary and the surrounding area after the recent flooding. But how? Here are eight possible ideas, including one from you. If you have any suggestions on how to make some of these ideas work please let me know. All funds raised will be sent to the Red Cross.

1.   Alumni hockey game between Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames held at Rexall Place
2.   Local businesses contribute 50 per cent of all sales from a specific day
3.   A concert at Telus Field with Alberta performers like k.d. lang, Ian Tyson, Brett Kissel, Tommy Banks, Paul Brandt and others
4.   A 24-hour production from all Edmonton television stations broadcasting at the same time
5.   Benefit concerts at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium and the Winspear Centre: the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra at one venue and the Calgary Symphony Orchestra at the other, followed by Alberta’s biggest marshmallow roast at Hawerlak Park
6.   Fill every pothole in Edmonton roads with loonies and deliver the grand total to Calgary
7.   Every Edmontonian donate a day’s pay
