The article focuses on the issue of demolishing the Norris cabin which is considered the most contentious log cabin in Edmonton, Alberta. It says that cabin's owner Peter Allard wants to develop a condominium tower on the lot housing the cabin, and hires consulting firm Stantec Inc. to manage its development. It adds that under the direction of Anne Lambert, a citizen of Oliver in Edmonton, the Community of Oliver Group (COG) has been doing a ruckus regarding the proposed project.
