Edmonton, Alberta is often referred to as "The Gateway to the North" because it functions as a link to Canada's northern communities through rail, road and air. However, Lorne Sheppard a city councilor in Edmonton suggests that it is time to start thinking of the city as something more than just a gateway. He believes that the city should change its slogan to "Edmonton: The Portal To The Universe."
"The Universe is still a mystery and so is Edmonton,"
Sheppard "If the universe is made up of all things, then theoretically
our city could be a portal to everything."
Peter Oldring spoke
with counselor Sheppard to learn why he thinks this is an absolutely
necessary change and why "Edmontonians need this." Special thanks to Tom on the blog for drawing our attention to this story.
