>> Edmonton, the capital of my province and the city where I was born:****

>> Leduc, where I really grew up; the city is near an international airport,

>> Calgary, the other major city in my province, technically has two

>> This sign refers to spurs on cowboy boots, because Calgary’s biggest
>> claim to fame is the internationally-renowned rodeo called the Calgary
>> Stampede. However, Edmonton and Calgary have a MAJOR rivalry – if you’re
>> from one city, you’re expected to hate everything about the other!  In the
>> spirit of that rivalry, the Edmontonian Deaf began joking that the sign was
>> really related to the sign for “garbage” and the Calgary was “garbage”. The
>> Calgarian Deaf, offended, decided to change the sign.****

>> This is what they changed it to:****

>> Personally, I’m sorry they changed it! The original sign had more
>> character, in my opinion. But I don’t subscribe to the rivalry between the
>> cities . . . much. (smile) Anyway, hope that’s not too many signs all at
>> once!****
