EDNONTON!

          Edmonton became Alberta’s provincial capital when Alberta became its own province in 1905.

          Edmonton’s mayor is Bill Smith. Mayor Bill Smith has recently gone to Austria on a business trip called “project Germany.” He is trying to get the German people to set up businesses in Edmonton. As a result some German people are going to set-up a recycling plant in the year of 2003!

          The population in 2002 was 665599 and 2003 is expected to grow by7-8000 every year. In 2003 it is expected to have about 772,599 people in Edmonton.

Edmonton will be holding the 2004 BMO (bank of Montreal) Canadian Skating Championship, the Juno Awards and in 2005 Edmonton will be the host of the World Masters Games!
