        Wishful thinking.
        But what a slap in the face it would be to the current Fed Govt.
        The world is full of kings and queens, who blind your eyes then steal your dreams.
        It's heaven and hell!

            • ^Without fed support, it's inconceivable that anything will be awarded to Edmonton.

              Of course, really BIG cities have hosted unofficial Worlds Fairs that have been among some of the most memorable ones ever. New York in both its occaions, 1939 and 1964, comes to mind.

              But this is Edmonton. This place is perfectly summed up by the illiterate and barely coherent comment to Hicks' article that pushes all the tired squawky buttons -- desecration of graves in Rossdale, homeless blah blah blah, and the rest of it, all as reasons why no business development is required.

                So you are saying that Edmonton's thankfully avoided expo would have been as good in every way as the two New York expos? If not, what are you saying?
