Lethbridge is a city in the province of Alberta in Canada. It is south of Calgary, and home to the University of Lethbridge. During World War II, japanese-canadians were interned near Lethbridge on farms. Lethbridge has a population of about 70,000, making it the third largest in Alberta, after the much larger cities of Calgary and Edmonton. It's one of the sunniest towns in Canada, due to its southerly location and position east of the rain-stopping Rocky Mountains. So says the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, anyhow. It is home to an international air show, and the enigmatic "Whoop-Up Days" annual festival, presumably connected somehow to the equally, er, intriguing "Fort Whoop-Up". I'm not making this up.
