Hahaha successful necrobump. I love seeing posts I don't remember making and then realizing it WASN'T because I was wasted.

Even Calgarians find Edmonton depressing. Go figure

lol, I was about to jump in feet first. We need a "where are they now" update to see what SF advice gets you.

Sorry, the prospect of hating on Edmonton just gets me riled up sometimes.

I'd move back to Edmonton from Hong Kong if I could do the same gig I'm doing now.

You're Crazy.

I moved here from Hong Kong and I can't wait to get out of here.

Do you know ANYTHING about Canada? Have you ever BEEN to Edmonton? Do you think it's some sort of outpost on the edge of the man's known frontier?

It's like anywhere else in the world, some stuff is great, some stuff is shitty, and lots of so-so stuff in between....it's life!

Until you've actually experienced something for yourself you can never fully understand or appreciate it. You're young and have an opportunity to experience something new AND further your career - what's so bad about that? Hell, you can always move if it's not a comparable paradise to Atlanta.

Lived in Edmonton for 10 yrs.  The city grew on me.  The river valley is beautiful.  Summer is amazing, weather is about as good as any I have ever experienced. Days are warm but not unpleasantly so.  Daylight lasts until after 10pm.  Winter sucks, it gets really cold and stays that way for months.  People are great, lots of civic/community pride.  Many great festivals throughout the year.  The old strathcona area is pretty cool.  I had a great time there as a university student. Downtown is sorta dead though.

 

Alberta has world class skiing no doubt, but its a 4ish hour drive to get to.  I knew some great skiers in Edmonton but many had cabins in the Banff/Carmore area.

 

I'd have no problem recommending it as a place to live, but for myself I'd want to make sure I could get at least one warm weather getaway in the winter.
