“The tiny town of Wayne in Alberta’s Badlands is not exactly a ghost town, but it’s not far off. Before the coal mine shut down, the town boasted a population of nearly 2,500 souls. Today, there are only 27 or, to be more accurate, 27 1/2 , as one of the town’s residents is pregnant. That’s big news in a community that has been in decline for decades.” – Canada.com
