I would like to see pictures of Fort McMurray. I tried searching on google but could only find aerial views and very few good pictures, and I am looking for pictures of the streets and buildings and stores and people.

wow

are those residential?

my brotehr worked in fort mac last year

he said the cheapest places went for $1200+ - he was lucky enough to find a room to rent and even that was over $500 a month

and he said food was like $1 more up there than down south - like if its $5.99 at mcdonalds here (vancouver) it would be like $6.99 up there

Looks like a nice sleepy town. Doesn't seem to be any construction going on.

And of course the comming attraction to Fort MAC !
thanks to CanadianCentaur
That’s awesome, these towers are going to massively dominate the skyline. Does anybody know where I could find more information about them ? I’ve found nothing so far.

Oh, and beside, any news about the twinning of the highway 63 ?

I've always thought they should go for something radically different for Ft. McMurray on the lines of a space station. It would certainly give this fast growing city another industry besides oil: tourism. Just house everyone in one building, then build another one for the next 100,000 people. Blade Runner meets Star Wars! I'd vacation there just to gawk at it. Please ignore the CN Tower.
