      And it's an Edmonton based artist.

        does it touch a nerve because although it's offensive to Edmonton and Edmontonians, its a tad true?
        I laughed a bit, and then was saddened that I was laughing because it does seem to ring true.

              I thought Calgary was the place with the over-inflated civic pride!

                      Nothing anyone hasn't heard if you lived here long enough. It's a bit amusing, but not exactly mind boggling. Here's my humble critique:
                      True? somewhat yes.
                      Offensive? my gawd! NOT!
                      Brilliant? well, that would be a pretty achievable definition of brilliant...shucks, maybe even I am brilliant.

                        not sure where the "over inflated civic pride" line came from. nothing could be farther than the truth. shoulda subbed in "self-loathing"
                        be offended! figure out why later...

                            Now THAT poster will place us on "The Map"!





                            Oh, my mistake, I thought that the poster was the new advertising champaign to replace the Capital Ex and former Klondike Days.

                              I see this poster and I actually had a chuckle. All the stereotypes about Edmonton are illustrated. But I think the bigger laugh comes out of the ignorance that some people have about our city.

                              Some of our ancestors endured ethnic jokes when they first came to Canada, partly because of ignorance, fear, and lack of knowledge. As time went on, they grew as Canadians, and prevailed. Newfoundlanders have capitalized on Newfie jokes, and it has been integrated into Canadian culture.

                              Part of growing up is learning to laugh at ourselves and our shortcomings. Some of them are self-inflicted, and they illustrate the stereotypes people have about Edmonton.

                              The contradiction about this poster though, is that people are moving to Edmonton. How much longer will these stereotypes last if Edmonton grows as a city?
