The capital "city" (actually a massive trailer park)of the Northwest Territories located on the shore of Great Slave Lake. where if they'd find the inclination a pack of arctic wolves could take over in about 15 minutes...
The "mall" is the most pathetic thing you ever saw in your life and if you're there in winter prepare to try to overcome overwhelming urges to commit suicide which most people soothe with booze, the vampire movie 30 days of night was probably inspired by a hour in Yellowknife. During summer months you'll find yourself awake most of the time due to the fact its never dark, alcohol will also come in handy during this season to put most people to bed.
vagrant drunks are a common sight and last i checked the legal drinking age was 16, so there are plenty of drunk kids too. The only thing yellowknife has going for it is the girls, who are like muskox in heat which probably means everybody that has come through town has had a piece of it already.
You might find yourself running for your life every now and then from wild animals including grizzly bears, moose, packs of hungry sled dogs and swarms of mosquitoes in their billions.
Oh yeah minorities get beaten up on a regular basis.
