    1. Sorry - can't see that - lived there 20 years. The only thing that high would be the City Hall building. Where's the old Centennial Pool, where is Tamarack, where is Keyano College (No purple building). Don't buy it.

  3. That is Fort McMurray. Taken very close to where the Centennial Pool use to be. See the sign for Warehouse One? Across the street is Tamarack Village Mall. The large concrete structure to the left. Parking/storage for AMP. Purple Palace is still here, not in the picture. Wrong angle.
    This is Fort McMurray. Been here 31 years, still here. <3

    1. It is calculated here by dividing a city's national income or output by the population...which means that ALL population is included, kids, seniors, stay at home parents...so if only one out of three people are working, you can triple the average income per working person.

    1. Prof, FYI Gatineau shares border with western Quebec and Ontario. Thus for statistics purposes, either of the following is considered- (Ottawa-Gatineau (Ont.-Que.), Ottawa (Ont.)-Gatineau (Que.), Ontario part, Ottawa (Ont.)-Gatineau (Que.), Quebec part)
