It's easy to talk sh*t about something, especially when you don't know much about the specific topic. I also suspect the vast majority of those that are pessimistic are not risk takers either.I have noticed that as well. I think for some people being overly critical or negative makes them feel smarter than the rest of us who just don't "get it". In reality, the problems facing cities are complicated and overly simplistic or glib responses from certain posters make it clear they don't really understand things as much as they think.
You can go on vacation to Vancouver or Toronto and come back to dump all over Edmonton, but frankly that isn't particularly useful. We aren't perfect, but I have to give it to the builders in this city because it's much harder than just chirping from the sidelines.
