Called the City With All Hell For A Basement by Rudyard Kipling. He had his reasons ~ probably referring to the Natural Gas fields of the area. Could also have reference to The Legend of Medicine Hat when over a hundred years ago a Native dweller lost his War Bonnet and declared the Longitude and Latitude as a place of Bad Medicine. Whatever the local Lore, it is my place of Birth, My Medicine Hat. A place where this rainbow chose to set down it's pot of gold!
