Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

Traditional small oil and gas exploration is giving way to mega oil sand developments. Over 100 Billion dollars in development is planned for the Edmonton area. The oil sands is very labor intensive. One can make 38 dollars an hour driving super sized dump trucks in Fort McMurray.
If you don't want to work up north.. Try Wendy's. Most places will give you an interview on the spot, and wages are around 10 bucks an hour. We have Universal health care, but your rent will be 1200 for a two bedroom apt.

The first picture is quite intriguing. I like the angle of it.
I don't think I ever ate at Wendy's. I'm not a fan of fast food anyways.
