EDMONTON DAILY PHOTO

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.

Edmonton Rapid LRT

Edmonton City has a population of 750,000 but another 250,000 plus live just outside the city limits. To add to that Edmonton is expected to grow by 400,000 people over the next 30 odd years. LRT is becoming a major issue. Edmonton was the first city in Canada with a LRT line. It was started for the Commonwealth Games. Due to recesion in the 80's and then lack of prov gov't intrest funding for expansion in Edmonton stopped. That all changed a few years ago, these pictures are from the opening of the new South Extension. An anouncement was also just made that has provided funding for a North East expansion. our North West Leg is past the planning stage and now just needs Finacial commitment.
