I was thinking of writing a column on Edmonton’s new “Accidental Beach,” which formed spontaneously this summer as an unplanned effect of bridge construction on the North Saskatchewan, and wondering exactly how to explain it to a national audience. Eventually I figured it out. The whole thing is a fairy tale. A fairy tale… happened. You need to notice I didn’t say it was LIKE a fairy tale. I didn’t add evasive, deflating adjectives like…
