    I lived in Edm. for quite a long time but couldn't stand the winters and eventually, all my friends left and it was just a town filled with blue-collar workers and people with too much money and no taste. It's still preferable to Calgary, but...I grew up in small-town Alberta (at least until I was 12) and although I like the country, I can do without the small-town prejudice and meanness.

    I visited Tronno for 24 hours once - it was enough.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    When you live in a smaller Canadian city, Toronto seems like The Coolest
    Place on Earth, and when you go there, you want to visit Montreal --
    but overall I like T.O.

    I should go on about Busan for a few screens' worth of bile -- when
    you walk down the street, the sewers are a mere two feet beneath
    the sidewalk and the sewage is mixed in with the storm drain, so you
    constantly smell whiffs of human shit as you're walking about. The
    pollution is so bad on some days it looks like an English fog outside
    your window -- only it smells like burning diesel fuel. And there's the
    dust -- when there's no pollution the wind blows dust from the Gobi
    desert across the East sea, across the whole southern tip of SK
    to Busan; it makes it hard for the seniors to breathe and it's almost
    as bad as the pollution. I can't wait for another tsunami to come along
    so we can start from scratch.

    But I think I'll throw in an honorable mention for Centralia, Pennsylvania.
    A colleague from thereabouts claims that an underground coal fire
    has been burning there, in a mine tunnel, for four full
    decades
    ....they've tried everything to put it out and can't.

    That is not a misprint.

    ^^I think I would still choose Centralia over Busan.

    Ourman, your burning underground coal fire reminds me of when I lived in Parma, Ohio (outside of Cleveland) and the Cuyahoga river was so polluted it actually caught on fire and burned, and they had no idea how to put it out.
    Keep passing the open windows.

    hahahaha ..Cleveland..the mistake on the lake!. Glasgow53 you must not be a spring chicken either..that happened in 1969! Cleveland is paradise though compared to Youngstown..a decaying, mafia-infested, crime-ridden, polluted and looted semi-abandoned charnel house of a city where the only inhabitants are those who cannot or will not escape!

    No, Sojiita, I am an old bird. I can remember the Hough riots (although I was pretty young at that time) and I am not sure what year they were. All I remember was that there was a big bakery called the Hough Bakery and they took our girl scout troop there to watch them make cakes, etc. and the area all around the bakery looked like a war zone.
