It's really a great time to be an Edmontonian because backwards anti-progress thinking such as yours and others on this board are on the way out after 30 long years. Can't wait, personally.
Wow, some of the silliest stuff I've ever read on this board. What absolute claptrap.

You pull out every cliche in the book.
