Given my one visit to Grand Piraire I can certainly see how something tragic like that happen... I hope that everyone else is coping well with the tragedy though =(

As for poutine, ya I only get the regular type of poutine at NYF. It's a tragedy that the last time I went to Quebec, I didn't have time to get a "real poutine." It felt like going to Italy without trying pizza...

People are handling it rather well, but the next school day after it happened, it was just... Surreal. The hallways were so quiet, you could hear a pin drop. And they had counselors from all over the school district at the library to help the students and staff cope. Some teachers couldn't even stop from shedding tears.

I'd love to go to Québec just to try a poutine. omg. Seeing as I know French somewhat, it shouldn't be too hard to find my way around lol

I've never been to the West Edmonton Mall, but I'm not the kind of person that finds a big appeal about going to a big mall. I guess working in one does kind of kill that as a fun activity, though. But, I do have some family up in Edmonton, so maybe one day I'll end up going just to say that I did.

And I've never been a big fan of gravy, so I'm not all that fond of poutine, but my sister absolutely loves it. This got me to thinking about other foods that you can only find in Canada, and was surprised to see that aside from small specialty stores, Aero, Caramilk and Coffee Crisp chocolate bars can't be found in the US (and they call them candy bars, not chocolate bars).

I was at the West Edmonton Mall 2 times. I had so much fun the two times I was there, though. I really want to go back and shop though.

I don't think that it's the biggest mall anymore... and it's just like the Montreal underground mall: if you live there, you get tired of it or that it loses its specialty. It's just a very big mall lol.

And really, for guys, there's nothing to buy there XD; Not all, but most of the shops there are for the ladies, and you better be loaded if you intend to spend an entire day shopping in West Edmonton Mall...

Given the fact that this is me, I'll find something that catches my attention. I somehow always manage to find something that grabs my...

Shiny thing!

Literally the only store I remember being in West Edmonton Mall aside from a Yogen Fruz was an HMV. XD I was 6 when I moved away.

But any mall gets boring when you live near it. My parents live about 10 minutes away from Vaughan Mills right now which is a huge American-style mall that's a pretty big tourist attraction (I assume because it's also across the street from Wonderland) and it's one of my least favourite malls for being so crowded and so boring. :(

Any mall can become boring if you go there alot. But if you go in different malls around the world, you'll be walking around it unlike the mall that you live 10 minutes right next to haha.

We have a local mall, but I've only been there a few times, although I know what it offers. I wouldn't say that I find it boring, but I just know what's there, mostly clothing stores, and I'd just go there to window shop.

I'm pretty sure that you do that for all malls for the most part: window shop. Just a lot of nothing to do around here in Alberta, or maybe just my lifestyle... most of the time hanging out for me involves visiting friends' place or inviting them to come over and that's it. Not too much of going out to any shop or any particular places lol.

There's a theater, book store, tons of clothing stores, a food court, and a few other assorted stores that are part of chains, like Shopper's Drug Mart and The Source by Circuit City. That's really it, though.

Oh and there's one barber's shop there too.

Unfortunately, that just sounds like any other shop XD;

Other "canadian" things: how's hockey for everyone though? I'm totally not a sports person and don't find it all that exciting XD Honestly can't care about it, but what about everyone else?

Even though I'm a fan of an American team (I just can't bring myself to cheer for the hometown Canucks), I absolutely love both playing and watching it. The fact that there have been 4 work stoppages in the last 20 years, including this one, makes it hard for me to love the NHL, though. It baffles me that players and team owners are shutting the league down because the players don't want a ~12% paycut, even though their average yearly salary is $2.5 million. I would gladly take a 50% paycut if it meant getting paid to do something I love. Oh well, at least TSN and Sportsnet usually replace hockey with... poker?

I'm kinda sad for the lockout this year. I do watch hockey often, but there's still basketball and the MLB Postseason to watch. I'm not a fan of CFL though.

I don't really pay much attention to sports especially now that I don't have cable or anything, but I hear enough about the Leafs through the grapevine that I stay informed. Not that there's much to be informed of because they suck every year. (You'd think that since I'm not really attached to any team I'd pick a team that doesn't suck but my dad would disown me. :P)

...although thus far they have a perfect season! They haven't lost a single game!

I remember that tweet about the Leaf having a perfect game and I totally laughed XD;

In general you'll think that Canada will be better in hockey than others considering how it's our national sport... I remember talking with someone in PC, and she said that "my friend has only heard of Edmonton because they were insane enough to play hockey outdoor when it's -30C". Can't say that Edmonton Oilers are much better, not that I like watching hockey or anything on TV these days XD; at least we did come close to winning at least once within the past 19 years =P

:( Isn't Edmonton in danger of losing the team right now? I haven't heard a whole lot about it since I don't pay close attention to NHL news but I thought I'd heard something about looking for an arena and possibly moving the team?

There's some talks about it because Edmonton is talking of building a new arena, yet the taxpayers aren't too happy with the price tag... so there's some issues going on there. For the meantime though, I think that the team is still going to stay. However I'm a bad person to ask since I too don't pay much attention to NHL. The only thing I know about the NHL is the recent lockout that's related to salary issues.

Yeah. The owner, Daryl Katz said that if they can't come up with a solution to a new arena, that he'd relocate the team to Seattle.

That means there wouldn't be any Battles of Alberta to look forward to anymore D:

Just, like, renew the lease to the Rexall Center or something ffs.

The only problem with Rexall Place is that the building is near 40 years old, and it wouldn't be worth the $75 million to renovate just to keep it running for another 6 or 7 years. Also, I think the whole moving the team to Seattle was just used as a bluff, as the KeyArena is smaller, and in even worse shape than Rexall.

If there absolutely has to be a relocation, I would think that Quebec City or the Hamilton areas would be better options than Seattle, simply because the NHL knows it would get much more revenue moving the team there (just like Atlanta relocating to Winnipeg).

It would be nice to have the new arena, but the price tag is just way too much. He's a billionaire - he should pitch in a large amount of the money. I'm pretty sure he can make it all back.

And then there's me as the Edmontonian of this club: "where's Rexall Place?" XD

I know it's in Edmonton surely but I've never been there, and if you give me pictures of 5 buildings, I will fail that multiple choice question of "which of the following is the Rexall Place?"

All I know is that I hope the team DOES'T make it to the semi/finals again, cause no mater if we win or lose, there's massive riots, random destruction and crap to handle afterward in the city's Whyte Avenue, where all the bars are. Sigh... Why can't we Canadians watch sports peacefully, isn't that right Vancouver?

Oh god I remember that a few years ago when Edmonton was in Game 7 of the finals (If Dwayne Roloson wasn't hurt, we would have won that hands down imo) and the outcome of that Game 7 caused a lot of issues that were on the local news for days after. Myself, I've never been to Rexall Place, so I wouldn't know where it is either.
