I would like to set the record straight about my city.
Yes, Calgary blows.

But it is STILL better than Edmonton.

We have ALL kinds of people...

Which means that, in fact, no we are not all red neck hicks. I would say like any other city we've got every kind of person... You can't honestly believe that you can group one million people into one category.

No, the night life is not fantastic, but it is still good. There are around five clubs that are pretty awesome.

I do believe that Calgary's just a baby still. It's growing up and, FINGERS CROSSED, it's only gonna get cooler (it obviously can't get worse).
Calgary is on it's way to the top. A city so new obviously doesn't have much history, god people.

Concrete city located 51°03' latitude and 114°05' longitude in Alberta, Canada.

The city is a giant network of poorly planned and poorly maintained road systems, causing mass congestion in a city with only 900,000 people. It sports a bare minimum 'tram' system which does not even reach the airport, and is often littered with homeless people who can ride the trains for free in downtown.

The homeless dominate the north-eastern downtown core, and even have their own purpose built hotel, with rates starting at $0 per night. The homeless population can be seen killing each other outside the Cecil Hotel.

Older suburbs are beginning to show their age and are the shanty towns of Calgary. Lack of city investment is aiding their rapid demise, and fueling the local criminal population.
Pedestrians and cars both get the green light at the same time. It's called population control.

A Canadian patrol frigate based in CFB Esquimalt. Named after a kickass city, she is the only ship in the Canadian navy whose crew uniform varies from the regular uniform- the standard white cap is replaced with a white Stetson.

A city in Alberta, Canada, which is near Edmonton and the Rockies. Known for the Stampede, and it's incredibly large population of homophobic racist closeted cowboys.
Calgary is full of homophobic racist closeted cowboys. But still good.

A tiny, insignificant part of Canada that suddenly (due to it's recent oil boom) thinks it is the most cosmopolitan, hip, flourishing place to be.

While it's true that there has been a lot of economic activity since the late 90's, there are other cold facts Calgarians don't like to brag about:

- population less than 1 million (that is a small city)
- conservative politics (need I mentiond Harper?)
- completely DEAD nightlife (Electric Avenue blows)
- no diversity in employment (either you sell real estate
or you are a redneck working on the oil rigs)
- only white people live there ... i.e. no authentic
cultural experiences like food, art, social diversity

Canada has 3 important cities: Toronto, Montreal & Vancouver. There rest are strictly peripheral.
Dude: "how was the job hunt out in Calgary?"
Bud: "great. I can live here a buy a house ..."
Dude: "what the problem then?"
Bud: "Nothing to fucking do! I'd rather get back to Vancouver or head to Toronto where there is a real night life ... this place blows dog!!!"

A nice city that is obsessed with Toronto. Been there for a week and I don't know what the big deal is. Boring, flat and average. Turned down a nice job because I love Toronto that much. Sorry Calgary, Toronto will always be the city where the best and the brightest go. You guys can have all the rejects from Quebec and Newfoundland.
