Understandable. You may want to keep it in mind though if you aren't too tight for time, it's about an extra 30km and an hour to go through Calgary rather than Edmonton and I would rate the Icefields Parkway as a 9/10 and the northern route about a 6/10 of which only the last bit into Jasper is scenic.
