Erect a 1000' statue of Marvel's Wolverine in downtown Edmonton

      Brian LaBelle

      Edmonton, Canada

It is important to build this statue because in order for Edmonton to be considered a "world class" city, we NEED a statue similar to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Statue of Liberty in New York City. Wolverine is arguably the most famous Albertan around the world and this statue would be a major boon for tourism in the city. It is also important because it is what is commonly referred to as a "catalyst project", meaning it will spur greater growth on the downtown of Alberta's capital city and create numerous spin-off projects in much the same way that the X-Men comic book spun off dozens of other successful books. In order for Edmonton to join the ranks of other world-class cities we need a hero to champion Edmonton across the globe, because Wolverine already does that as a former student at the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning and as the current Headmaster of the Jean Grey School for Gifted Youngsters, he is the natural choice. Please don't miss this opportunity to revitalize our downtown core Edmonton City Council, I fear the downtown arena and other developments will be in jeopardy if we don't.

      This is important because Wolverine is a Canadian superhero. he isnt polite, and he is a brute. However so were our Soldiers in WW2. we may be polite and we may settle things verbally. but Wolverine represents our Patriotism he is unbreakable like our beliefs in our country and our Pride, and Like us Canadians he will fight for what he believes in. so no he may not be the polite mild mannered individual that the prissy people wished he was but its not what he does that matters its what he represents. the true patriotism, the unmovable belief and faith in our country, and the Strength to fight to protect our country and what we believe in. That is a true Canadian in my book and I'm proud to Call wolvernine a Canadian Superhero.
