      Senators will be no problemo, they can just lie about where they are from.

      That's a little inaccurate. Plenty of sky lights in the mall.

      If it's like practically every other mall I've been to in my entire life then 90% of the stores in WEM sell nothing but women's shoes.

      Province of West Edmonton Mall already his its motto "Where The Sun Dont Shine on its provincial licence plates.
      They are really striking, dayglo lime-green.

      Not true. They also have two sex shops and three tattoo shops. Far from your average mall. 8)

      The make up of the average mall is now 90% women's clothing / apparel, and cellphone stores.

      Rather than a delightful mix of everything, it's just clothes and cell phones.
