    Default Edmonton like a local

    Scathing Lonely Planet review inspires insider's guide of city
    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmont...anet-1.4444884

    When Vikki Wiercinski heard Edmonton described as a "frigidly cold" government town in a less-than flattering Lonely Planet review, she decided to stick up for her city with a new guidebook.

    The graphic designer has produced and printed a crowd-sourced insider's guide of the city called Edmonton, It's Fine here! 45 Ways to Edmonton Like a Local.

    The guidebook is a compilation of the city's must-see destinations and hidden gems, as suggested by locals through an online survey.
    “You have to dream big. If we want to be a little city, we dream small. If we want to be a big city, we dream big, and this is a big idea.” - Mayor Stephen Mandel, 02/22/2012
