    On a more positive note, I see Haida Gwaii got a mention too. Now that is a Canadian destination worth mentioning.

    Ya, the review of North 53 is a bit dated. They have a new chef now. But great none-the-less. I still love the place.

    National Geographic has more respect for us than does Travel Alberta.

    One of those is reputable. The other is Travel Alberta.

    ^To be fair, most travellers coming to Alberta are coming here for the Rockies, specifically Banff. That's the reality. I've spoken to Travel Alberta social media guy, they are just responding accordingly.

    But with expanded international destinations from Edmonton, and growing interest in other places in Alberta other than Banff by tourists, you'll notice Travel Alberta social media does feature more than just the Rockies lately.
