Is that the same type of event as 'Frontier Days' where they focus on how the area was settled, homesteaders, and staff are all in period outfits?

That would be the Klondike days, a 10 day event all over the city.


Heritage Festival is a three-day event to sample delicious food, see creative performances, and celebrate Canada's multiculturalism. Enjoy the tastes, smells, sights, and sounds from countries and cultures at outdoor pavilions.

Heritage Days, a festival of cultures from around the world consisting of food, dance, music, clothing, and country information. Each tent you see in that pic represents a country or culture. It is by far my favourite festival, so many fascinating people from all over.

When ever I look at Edmonton I get the sense that it's only 4-5 years into a century long boom. Stantec and the new arena are giving us a taste of what type of city Edmonton is turning into. 3 million people by 2050!

Due to having 70s/80s apartment blocks? US cities didn't build very many of them compared to Canadian cities.

I don't think Toronto has any competition within Canada population and skyscraperwise, and it'll never have.

Well not this century anyway. Toronto has such a big lead and so much momentum it will be #1 for a very very long time.

Montreal has some potential to challenge Toronto again but the Quebec government is holding Montreal from its full potential for growth by reducing immigration.
