Old-school Edmontonians reacted in anger over Edmonton City Council’s decision on Wednesday to not revive the old “City of Champions” slogan. One individual, however, had a much more morbid reaction.

“This city is gone!” proclaimed Ezzie Stenshulist yelled out to passersby on the corner of Jasper Avenue and 101 Street.

“Without a slogan, this city no longer has a reason to exist! Look around you! All you see is nothing! I’ll prove it!”

Stenshulist subsequently suffered a broken nose after walking into the side of the Commerce Place building.
