'A One-Pronged Attack'

Bill Foster, who teaches economics and business management at the U of A's Augustana campus in Camrose, will do a presentation tomorrow at a conference hosted by the University of Victoria on his findings of community reaction to Pronger's trade. Because Pronger didn't articulate why he left, fans felt jilted and fought accusations the city isn't top notch, he added.

I was born and raised in Edmonton and now I live and work in Victoria. Approximate number of people I've met who need to go to a conference to figure out why anybody - much less a person making $6 million a year - would want to live in The Gravel Pit (c): Zero.
The myopians in Edmongrad who let their lives be consumed by bitterness over Janet Gretzky or Lauren Pronger or some news-reading ditz should get outta town more. Not to Mexico or Hawaii. To either of our coasts. Or to Montreal or Quebec City. Even Ootawa would suffice. Get some perspective on why outsiders with a choice about where to live would rather donate a functioning organ to charity than live in the Toilet Bowl of North America (c).
Edmonpuddlians need to ask themselves: "If my family and friends weren't already here (or) if this weren't the only place I could earn this kind of money, would I choose to live here?"
Commence with the weak takes about hippies and rain.
