  • Edmonton's Expo 2017 bid heads overseas

    A three member delegation from Edmonton is on its way to Paris France to participate in Expo 2017 discussions.

    There were worries earlier this week, that Edmonton would miss the boat because of a lack of federal support for the bidding process.

    However, Alberta Tourism Minister Cindy Ady confirms her deputy minister is part of the trio that will take part in networking and business meetings of the International Exhibitions Bureau, which eventually will decide which city hosts 2017.

    It's expected Edmonton will formalize its bid, and officially enter the race in the fall of 2011.
    “You have to dream big. If we want to be a little city, we dream small. If we want to be a big city, we dream big, and this is a big idea.” - Mayor Stephen Mandel, 02/22/2012

        We all know where this ended up.
        My hope is that you can finally get rid of the anger in your heart, and fill it with peace, compassion, understanding, and a desire to uplift rather than suppress.

        After all, we are all together on this home, this pale blue dot, the "only home we've ever known.”
