    I live in central america, actually looking for a city in Canada to move in….I was told Canadians are nice and culture people….far away from americans, but after reading all these reviews i got a bit dissapointed.

    @LIFEinMOLLYWOOD Your brother is a god damn liar. Tons of people walk around even in the winter, go downtown and it’s fucking busy. People take drugs and drink in any city have some common sense.

    never want to leave this great piece of land.

    vancouver’s ok, calgary is full of ignorant rednecks and have a giant dick in their skyline, toronto isnt bad but not great, ottawa is really damn boring and montreal has too many languages.

    edmonton is an all year frozen dump that is ugly as hell. how can you call that a city!

  • lugial:

    Minus 30, plus 30, we get both extremes. Very interesting place to live! Many great outdoor festivals all year ’round! Whether you attend in a bikini or a balaclava, it’s still an awesome city!

  • lee5537:

    We also have a corrupt mayor who is supported by our local media. Who wants to close our ECCA so the new owner of the Oilers can have a billion dollar ice rink on 80% tax payers dime, and would be able to keep all the profits. Building condo’s every where and shoving the LRT down our throats. Putting the city deep in debt. Our mayor was pushing really hard for EXPO till the feds to him to can it. THANK GOD.. Yes Edmonton sucks. STAY AWAY.

  • sephoramaria:

    @prokopton hahahaha deserted??????????? hahahahaha what a lie.

  • lugial:

    @lee5537
    Actually I live in Sherwood Park. The arena matter… Well doesn’t matter to me. But I love Edmonton anyways. Maybe if people would stop voting for the Cons it would be a better place.

  • ajberry1:

    The first picture of that sign.. I used to live down the highway from there xD

  • ajberry1:

    @LIFEinMOLLYWOOD You freaking kidding me? Are talking about the right Canadas? Edmonton is called the festival city for no reason. There are more than 30 annual festivals, year round, trust me. I’ve been to every lots since I was born. The biggest probably being K-days. (Or capital ex). On July 22, 2010, an estimated 230,000 people lined the streets of downtown Edmonton JUST for the parade. Not even the festival yet. I guess your brother was either living under a rock or blind.
