Everything Yellowknife

Mercer’s Yellowknife

There is just something about Rick Mercer that will make you laugh, and no it isn’t his towering height of 3 feet. His openness to say what is on his mind is what we often need to cheer us up.

I stumbled upon this video today from when Mercer visited Yellowknife 5 years ago. Watching it made me think “My, Yellowknife has changed”. There are several things throughout the video I’m sure you’ll notice that are different in 2010. We no longer have an abundance of Caribou or Japanese, the Snowcastle has grown and the weather is a wee bit warmer. Whether it is less or more the one thing that hasn’t changed it Yellowknife as a community, we continue to have an upbeat spirit. We have continues festivals and events happening. This is part of the reason I love Yellowknife.

I think everyone show take a look at Mr. Mercer’s video and have a laugh as we begin the weekend.
