Happy Friday! We made it to the end of September.

Here’s a look at all of the stories that caught the attention of AB’s editorial team this week: 

First off, an apology.

Our website was undergoing updates this week that created some unexpected technical issues. These issues led us to delay, and ultimately cancel delivery of Wednesday's issue of AB Today. We’ve been working closely with our web developers to make sure that we’re back on track, but we may experience some outages on the site over the weekend, as well. Thanks for being patient with us, and sorry for missing you on Wednesday! 

Now, to the news highlights…

We’re continuing to unveil our 2017 Facilities of Merit award winners. Check out these cool ‘glideshow’ presentations on each of this week’s honorees:

Meadowvale Community Centre and Library

U.S. Bank Stadium

University of British Columbia Aquatic Centre

Conestoga College Student Recreation Centre

We have one more facility to announce on Monday, so stay tuned to AB Today.
