As pointed out in a previous article by Erik Backstrom, our sister city in China has their very own Edmonton Road (埃德蒙顿路 or Āidéméngdùn lù). It is a major arterial that connects two major ring roads and the Harbin-Taiping International Airport. It would be interesting to hear what Edmonton means to these commuters.
