As a former Calgarian (yay Calgary!), yes, I'd have to say Edmonton sucks. But it's got its ups i guess...just none of them have to do with the roads! *hahahah* Not the greatest city to race in. But...friends are good here, and of course, who could forget the mall?http://www.asianet.ca/images/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif? *HAHAHAHAHA*

whenever someone asks you
"what's there to do? it's edmonton"
you say
"move"

Edmonton's not that bad.. At least we have tonnes of festivals etc during the summer. Those are always fun to go visit.

I like it here too.. Nice and quiet...

These roads arent bad.. especially when you compare to the crap they have in the states..

Edmonton's not too bad -- it's just not a place for young people. No nightlife and not a lot of places to see. I think someone said that you could see everything in Edmonton in less than a day! Sad.

I've never been in Edmonton before, to be honest, I've never been to western Canada before. Is it worth visiting one day and I have the money?

It doesn't matter where you live, you get bored of it eventually...
As for Cal town, plleease, what do you do there for fun, riding cattles? I see your point if you live in Vancouer or something...
I think it all depends on the people you hang out with and what you do for fun...

Yea, Calgary is quite horrible. Well, the mountain view is pretty, but the roads are terrible! I get so lost driving in Calgary! and their bubble tea sucks too.

Calgary Sucks, I spent one weekend there and my car gets broken into on the second night.

Property is ridiculously expensive, the people are snobby,and everything is expensive.

Double for Vancouver, the Vancouver nightlife is dying out too.

Calgary is boring. Its dirty when i last went there and the food is disgusting. Its so oily and greasy.

Vancouver is okay. It has at least interesting stuff to do. And the sky-train is cool...

I think Vancouver has cleaner air because they are near the ocean. How can people think Edmonton and Alberta's air in general be clean. In one of the past edmonton journals, edmonton and calgary is in the top 5 for worst air quality among big cities in canada...

calgary and edmonton are ok. but england in is much better. Theres at least 2 times as much people in london alone than there is in edmonton, calgary and van. put together! So r roads r much smaller than ur but at least we get good cars!!!!

Vancouver is nice, but the roads and environment is harsh on a car...

Cops are way too anal in Van as well.

i don't think any of those places (calgary, edmonton, vancouver) suck... compare what we have here versus some third world country. we're lucky we even have roads... yeah potholes suck but gotta look at the positive side of things.

my 2 cents.
