salute to new alberta city & town!

Daveberta would like to salute the newly minted City of Brooks and Town of Onoway!

Today, both municipalities had their municipal status upgraded respectivly from Town to City, and from Village to Town. Congrats!

For those of you interested, in Alberta, there are now:

16 Cities
4 Specialized Municipalities
113 Towns
99 Villages
and 50 Summer Villages.

My neighbor was just asking me about that the other day. What are the sixteen cities? And what are the 4 specialised municipalities?

Jim said...

Random thought of the day:

The Alberta Liberal Party needs a blog.

Spruce Grove. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

" Spruce Grove. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."

Yes you will: Drayton Valley.

The pulp mill's cool though.

Sorry, but I'm afraid that Whitecourt owns that dubious destinction.

You must have been bored to post this news cowboy!

daveberta said...

Emil! Where have you been?!? I missed your memorable comments! ;-)

Actually, I have been to both Brooks and Onoway, and of course I care!

D :-)

Emil Vargas said...

Hmmm. I've never been to both unless driving through Brooks on your way to Medicine Hat counts. I don't even know where the hell Onoway is.

Jim said...

And you consider yourself a real Albertan, Emil?

You sound more like an out of touch Ottawa LIBERAL! ;P

daveberta said...

Onoway is northwest of Edmonton.

Emil Vargas said...

Whatever you say Jim! Mr. Alberta Liberal Party blog. Thats outta touch with Alberta. I'm out of touch b/c I don't know where some friggin town is. You sound like an arrogant Ottawa Liberal! You're prob. related to Jean Chretien! What's your last name?
