Well Edmonton does have it's own business cluster, I wouldn't count it out yet. It would only take a couple of big wins to level the playing field and make it anyone's game. If corporate competition gets too intense in Calgary there could be real cost savings in attracting Edmonton-based talent as well with a headquarters.
