Name of creator
After 13 years as a journalist for the Edmonton Sun and the Edmonton Examiner, Allan Boldstad decided to run for municipal office. He was first elected as a Councillor for Ward 2 in 1992, and was subsequently reelected until he chose to leave politics in 2004.
Scope and content
This series consists of records related to the proposed privatization of ED Tel in 1994. The records include correspondence, a memorandum, presentations, proposals, and notes relating to different options. The material was used by Allan Bolstad in his capacity as a City Councillor.
The Edmonton Telephones Corporation (ED Tel) was created in 1990 as a result of the provincial Telecommunications Act, which allowed municipalities to provide telecommunications services and products through a wholly-owned subsidiary corporation, but not through a City department. In early 1994 the outgoing ED Tel President publicly raised the idea of selling the utility. Ultimately the Edmonton Telephones Corporation was sold to Telus on March 10, 1995 for $470,221,872.
Immediate source of acquisition
The material was transferred to the City of Edmonton Archives from the Mayor's Office in 2004.
