People in Edmonton are super steamed over Lonely Planet’s description of the city as cold and boring.
It hasn't gone down very well with locals.
Many are accusing the writers of not actually visiting the city.
"Did [you] guys really visit or speculate?"
(Although there have been some dissenters.)
To add insult to injury, the write-up for Calgary was very positive, calling the city "cool" and praising its sense of community.
Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson and others on the city council have come to the defence of their city, insisting that Edmonton is actually quite cool and hip.
