    Please do not construe anything I post as condoning toxic, untruthful condominium websites. I do not use Facebook. I have a 25 year history of using 2 Investor Village discussion forums. In my opinion a forum must be monitored to be successful so the free speech boogeyman is just that. Not valid or actionable if monitoring was active. I think my condominium board lacks transparency in specific topics and when they do post information I think they would post information which was inaccurate to the degree that I would use the word untruthful. I think  a website, where monitored information is posted in good faith, is closer to a positive solution to condominium issues in Alberta than a toxic disruptive force would certainly be. If the worrisome examples posted above might follow board transparency issues, then a proper communication set up is the issue; you are not going to get rid of social media you do not like but you might smother it with transparency that is neutral, monitored and accessible by all local condo players.  Use YouTube to search New Engineered Hardwood Deficiencies. My hardwood was replaced at a developer’s cost of $10,000.00. I paid nothing. A couple of very late replies by me. I did not see the comment. I was also very sick which I mention because it is a huge issue in using the very weak provincial bylaw condominium support avenues we have in Alberta. I am very interested but me going door to door to get names of supporters is not a possibility and I am not allowed an E mail list or any other means of communication.

    To appear to stay on topic Alberta condominiums need a functioning site to take board discussions with owners to a next step which includes the light of day with other owners who choose to read it.
