An older picture but still relevant as these spiders are appearing more this time of year. They are common in the Edmonton area and are harmless to humans. They are very useful and skilled at taking care of the mosquito problem though.
The era of trolley bus service in Edmonton came to an end at 5pm on May 2nd, 2009. We started by following BBC #195 which we came across first. ETS had a special trolley out on route 3 also. The older Brill Trolley #202 was giving free rides earlier in the day but was transporting VIPs on its final run as the last trolley to be in service by ETS.
The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train arrives in Edmonton on a cold winter night. It stopped for a 30 minute performance by various musical artists including Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame member Tracey Brown and Canadian Country Music Awards winner Johnny Reid. This was the first visit this special train made to Edmonton and area in two years. Even with the extremely cold wind there was still a good sized crowd present to take in the entertainment and offer donations to the Edmonton Food Bank.
