A large, sprawling, industrial cesspool located in central Alberta, that is home to about 1.1 million people. Edmonton is known for very few things, and is a relatively unremarkable city with the largest shopping mall in North America. Edmonton has the highest murder rate in Canada, because all of the inbred trash that works in the oil fields up north comes down to Edmonton to waste their money on whores, drugs and lap dances before shooting someone in the face. These people are usually white trash, natives or immigrants from Africa and India.
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.
I just went to Edmonton, got shot, got frost bite and made 500,000 dollars from working at McDonalds.
The capital city of Alberta, Canada
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
A city with about a million people, quite nice. Capital of Alberta. Has the most park land on average than any city in the world. Unlike our cocky counterpart to the south Calgary we do not think we are the best city in the world, or compare ourselves with toronto or vancover. Great sports teams, nice people, moderately nice city. Can be a very nice place to live and grow up.
assclown calgarian: "we have the best city in the world"
edmontonian: " we dont have the best city in the world, but i like it here"
The Capital City of Alberta it does have some issues, but it is WAY WAY WAY better than Calgary. Sports teams include the Oilers, Eskimos, Cracker Cats,etc. Has West Edmonton Mall. Riverbend od the rich area, some parts of the city are kinda bad to go to. bad infrastucture, poor planning. Mayor is currently Steven Mandel.
Go oilers!!! WOOT EDMONTON OILERS!!!! We should have won the Stanly Cup. Oh well, we will get the grey Cup this year. knock on wood.
Grim, depressing, crime ridden area of North London. Enfield Boroughs most dangerous place
person 1: I'm going into Edmonton
Person 2: Have you got your bullet-proof vest?
Although it is a booming city with a huge economy in oil and other natural products, Edmonton Alberta has the highest rate of murders in all of Canada.
Way harder than Calgary, who is known for rounding up horses and having sex with cousins.
My friend went to Edmonton and got shot in the head 50 times. He lived.
A great city with a booming economy. It is not on top of Calgary just geographically though, we have 5 stanley cups to their 1, and 13 grey cups to their 5.
Calgary(AKA Mulletgary) is full of inbred homosexuals.
Oh, you're from Edmonton, you're straight. People from Calgary like taking it in the bum from their immediate family.
very cool city, less sluts than calgary, but the "city of champions" thing is old and dumb. but a nice university, lots of scientific types, etc., and better clubs than calgary.
yo i'm going to see planet of the drums in edmonton this weekend, cause if i go to the one in calgary, i know i'll get in a fight with some dumbass drunk slut like i always do.
