Does anyone know where to buy some French Cognac in Edmonton? I prefer Delamain, A.E.Dor, Gautier and Hennessy.

Nice pictures. It looks like Edmonton has a pretty healthy Chinese community, based on the parade and stores.

well that makes sense and explains things. i wondered about that because there arent that many anglos to fill a city that size, but i never really looked at it. its like a majority chinese foothold n.a. city.

Every major and many minor Canadian city has a lot of Chinese people, so Edmonton isn't that unusual.
