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.

The capital of Alberta, a city like calgary only smaller, and with methheads instead of cowboys.

A shitty city in Central Alberta, it is shitty because:

A. Fat Capital of Canada (not making that up, it statistically is the Houston of Canada)

B. They call themselves the city of Champions because of 5 Stanley Cup wins, I am from Calgary but I am well aware that Montreal has won the cup 22 times so what does that make them? Ultra champs? And then theres the 11 grey cup titles, no one overly cares about cfl except Saskatchewan because they have even less than Edmonton

C. No chinooks = what few hotties there are most likely are all bundled up in parkas....

D. D is for Deadmonton

E. The mall is decent but should be renovated soon, looks pretty shitty to me

F. What else does your city have? really question yourselves

A smelly cluster of factories and a huge mall located in the middle of nowhere. Edmonton defiantly takes the cake for the worst place to live in Canada. It is the dirtiest and most polluted city in Canada and possibly all of North America. Downtown Edmonton is a total joke. Hardly any building even worth looking at and the homeless problem is absolutely insane and there is nothing going on downtown or for that matter anywhere in the city after 5pm. The weather in Edmonton is the absolute worst. Winter lasts for about 9 months of the year and it can be -20 for weeks staright.Spring and Fall are impossible to identify and the summer which lasts for about 15 days leaves you wanting to cry.
The population of Edmonton is mostly made up of fresh off the boat Immigrants who work at 7 11 and hardly speak English, uneducated blue collar trades people and a bunch of teens and 20 somethingโ€™s that drop out of school and just get baked all the time. All people in Edmonton can talk about is how the flames suck and Calgary sucks and itโ€™s a cow town and smells like leather and on and on yet they fail to look around them and see the frozen landfill that they live in.

Edmonton is nothing but an embarrassment to Alberta and all of Canada.

Capital city of Alberta, Canada. Mostly ghetto, Edmonton has a crime rate higher than all other places on Earth combined. Several murders per day are not uncommon. Most residents of Edmonton spend their miserable days lined up for free soup, or sitting in Emergency to have stab wounds sewn up. Poorly run, and freezing cold all year, Edmonton is full of empty malls, and East Indians.

Trust me, this is THE WORST city in North America. The people really think it's good, but 99% of them haven't gone further than Red Deer. Sweat Pants and a jean jacket pass as fashion here. Everyone drives like a shithead, and if you change lanes without signalling, they literally will come to your window to tell you off at the next light. I'm serious! If this was any other city, there'd be gun clapping to keep things in line. And what's with all the moustaches and mullets? OMG it's terrible. This city is the worst. There are no good places to go. It's so depressing. All it has is a freaking brown river and a shitty ass mall. The mall has a zellers...how good could it be??? I can't say anything good. The boom has made people lazy. I picked the wrong city to move to in Alberta. Calgary is way better. At least you can go for a nice dinner. I'm going back east as soon as I can. It sucks here.
I think I said enough, but I'll say it again. Edmonton is as bad a city as it gets. The residents need to learn that mullets suck, moustaches from 1984 are shit, and jean jackets from 1987 are terrible

Edmonton is the capital of Alberta in Canada. It is now the murder capital of Canada, and also has the highest crime rate in Canada. And i live here, what a fuckin waste of land it is! About a million people, more with all of its boroughs like St. Albert and Sherwood Park. Nice skyline. The nice areas are few, but they are mostly around the Riverbend district in the now joined former city of Strathcona and on the far western edge the now joined former city of Jasper Place... But there's too much bad shit... in other places... the ghetto is the entire lower northeast, stretching across the subway / above ground train line to areas like Belvedere and Highlands and Abbotsfield and Boyle/McCauley. Theres so much fucking gangs its crazy, the main ones that are bad and fighting each other right now are the mostly black Bloods and the mostly native Alberta Warriors. Theres like a fucking shooting a day here. it sux, yes it does... do something about it...
"Edmonton" should be better known as "the wasteland of Canada"
