Edmonton is also home to some of the most godawful, fucked up architecture in the world, where every building is either a grey or brown box that is spiced up with shitty neon. This is because most of the city's buildings were built in 1966 and haven't been renovated since my parents were in kindergarten and all the historic architecture was torn down by unscrupulous city planners.
On the bright side, Edmonton is also one of the wealthiest, fastest growing cities in the world, and the average Edmontonian has a higher per capita income than any other type of Canadian. That's the only reason I stay in this frozen over hellhole. Edmontonians have opportunities like no other.
Also, Edmonton is still better than Calgary, which is a boring Toronto wannabe with ugly, rude people and a shitty zoo. It's not as ugly as Edmonton, but it has no soul and is inhabited by mindless worker drones who sit in cubicles all day drinking soup from a straw.
Roughly one million people
It is properly known as the City of Champions because of the five time Stanley Cup champions Edmonton Oilers. and the 11 time Grey Cup Champions Edmonton Eskimos (most in CFL)
Way better than Calgary

Calgary(AKA Mulletgary) is full of inbred homosexuals.
