We have two major cities here in Alberta and Edmonton.

Edmonton, which is the Capital City and was established in the 1800’s as Fort Edmonton, a trading post for and build by Hudson Bay. Edmonton is famous for hosting over 60 festivals annually so therefore people call it Canada Festival City.

Calgary has another anchient reputation that is still very alive, the Cowboy City, built by the North West Mounted Police in 1875 as a small wooden fort, close to where the Elbow  and Bow Rivers merge, eventually led to Calgary. The NWMP’s mission was to disrupt the whiskey tradingin the region and to keep peace between the Natives and the European settlers.
