Edmontonians Love Their City.
A Resident of Edmonton As A Plant - Budd
I grew out of one of Edmonton’s lush ravines, a quiet place. A place that cultivated my roots at my most absorbent phase of life. A place, much like the rest of Edmonton, that is sensitive to the changing seasons.
All-Season City - Sunny & Ishpreet Lamba
Sunny and Ishpreet Lamba weren't sold on the move to Edmonton until they realized the lifestyle advantages. For Sunny and Ishpreet, Edmonton is an all-season city.
City of Edmonton Attractions
A Man With A Crush - Barry DeFord
I could draw you a map of the world right now. I love history. I love all the stuff you’re really not supposed to talk about at work, so I figure I should work in a place where I can talk about it all the time.
My Edmonton - Kat Flannery
It is here, I can be a part of the world that lived so long before me. It is where I can bring my children to learn the history of Edmonton.
Our Great City: Then and Now - Sherry Laderoute
I remember when my Dad was working on the Fort Edmonton replica when they were first building it. My Mom and a sister and a brother used to go and take him supper up that way sometimes.
Arts & Culture
River, Light, Snow & Art - Randall Stout
And then, of course, the presence of snow throughout so many months of the year. We took the position that it’s something we ought not to hide, but rather celebrate. Even at the time of the competition, we started doing renderings of our design proposal in a snowstorm, trying to think about the aesthetic of the building in that winter condition.
The Citadel Theatre - The Citadel Theatre
I love what I do and I love being able to do it at the Citadel in Edmonton.
West Edmonton Mall
Edmonton: An Awesome Place for Kids - David & Katie Carlson
Katie thinks Edmonton is the greatest city. From the Valley Zoo to the WEM waterpark, Edmonton has tons of things for kids. In the attached video Katie shares some of her favourites!
We Shared a Secret Smile - Jacqueline Ashmore
Good old West Edmonton Mall. We looked at each other while it dawned on us what she was talking about. We shared a secret smile only Edmontonians can have.
Smooth - Caitlin Bauer
Smooth is a short, quirky Whyte Ave tale from a September night two years ago. The birthday girl's friends are an hour late, but a strange elderly man brightens her evening.
Bucking Broncos - Canadian Finals Rodeo
The Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) is a world-class event that attracts some of the best in the bucking business. In the CFR videos, you’ll meet 4 of the 2009 contestants, as well as rodeo clown CrAsh Cooper.
Enduring an Edmonton Winter: Curling - Eric O'Brien
There are 2 types of curlers: one half conferences around the TSN curling broadcast and makes comments like, “Boy, that yellow rock is sure buried deep”; the other half watches a game out on the ice and strategizes, “If it were me, I’d have Linda peel that guard so that Terry doesn’t have a chance to score 2 and take it into extras.”
I Didn't Even Notice the Cold - Tita Francisco
My favourite season is Edmonton winters because that’s when I can watch hockey. It’s my favourite sport. I'm a big fan.
Taking in Our River Valley - Eugene Ip
Flowing glacially in a traffic jam of metallic snails, I am a mesmerized sightseer in the comfort of my vehicle, just letting the sweeping river valley panorama impress me for a prolonged IMAX sensation.
