    Default Amazing Race Canada will hit the streets of Edmonton

    Some of you might want to check out this week's episode of The Amazing Race Canada as it will be in Edmonton.

    Amazing Race Canada will hit the streets of Edmonton
    By Sandra Sperounes, Edmonton Journal September 11, 2015

    With only four teams left vying for the $250,000 grand prize, CTV’s Amazing Race Canada will hit the streets of past and present Edmonton in next week’s second-to-last episode of the season.

    Teams will curl and visit the Edmonton Waste Management Centre and Fort Edmonton Park as part of the 11th leg, according to a teaser at the end of this week’s episode. And what’s a trip to YEG without a bit of taxi drama, too? Sigh.

    Nova Scotia native Sean Sweeney, who is racing with his brother Brent, says Edmonton itself was as much of a test as the individual tasks.

    “We were really at the mercy of the city,” says Sean. “(The producers) really spread the tasks far apart so that transportation was equally as challenging.”

    Edmonton (and Saskatoon if i'm not mistaken) are the only main Canadian cities they have not yet visited, weird it took them until the 3rd season to come here given the shows Canadian Premise.

    Would've thought WEM would be a component of this leg

    Just watched the episode, showcase the city well. There was a gas station, taxi feuds, a pile of garbage, taxis not serving customers, some glimpses of construction, taxi waits and a random cheerleader totally irrelevant to the show. Nice little showcase of Edmonton in the summer.
