Dynamic Western Canadian City 77 miles east of Rocky Mountains. Originally the area was inhabited by first nations people. Later a Fort was built on the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers by the Northwest Mounted Police. Soon after hardy, independent immigrant settlers from Europe and Chinese bulding the railroad arrived and began farming and ranching. The Ranching business and meat packing industry resulted inCalgary becoming "Cowtown" The town still becomes Cowtown during Stampede, Calgary's annual summer festival of fun and nonsense and a summer break from hard work. Following the discovery of petroleum and natural gas at Brooks, Turner Valley, Bow Island and Leduc Calgary became the business centre for the oil and gas business. Engineering, Geoscience, technology, land and finance seems to be focused more in Calgary. Edmonton closer to the northern oil and gas discoveries, and "Gateway to the North" ended up as the staging ground for exploration and the "hardware store" and service center for the oilpatch. It is markedly different from Calgary but a great city as well. Calgary has a hard work ethic sometimes verging on workaholism and yet it plays hard too. Calgarians and Albertans in general are very generous with time, money and talents. Average people and millionaires rub shoulders in countless community charitable efforts. Most people who move to Calgary end up liking it as people are traditionally friendly and neighbourly although the boom times have attracted many who don't care to work
and are here only to take all they can get without giving back. Some by crime and violence. Those sorry mutts who bitch and complain about Calgary are in the main shallow callow self absorbed young twits /twats who have never seen the rest of the world other than in a rock video and are the sad pointless nihilistic effluent of an education system run by spoiled leftist whingers who are never happy with much of anything. We have to keep reminding them that if they hate Calgary there are 50 or sixty fligts and dozens of buses a day back to Butthole, Ontario or wherever it is that they think is utopia. Toronto ? Hah! Plenty of bridges to bail off of right into the icy cold anaesthetizing waters of the Beautiful clean Bow River. A fine trout stream. So take your enormous ecological footprint stats and shove them up your tigt eastern sphincters! As well Calgary has a better educated, well travelled, more internationally cospmopolitan population than nearly anywhere in Canada. Granted Calgary has problems with traffic, Hummer driving louts, flashy greedhead opportunists , smelly addicted beggars, useless waste of skin druggies, vandals and brain dead graffiti "artists." and the aformentioned leftist vegetarian dorks. The nice thing is that having been through a few of these g-damned booms we know that once the bloom is off the boom the whole scummy works all get back on the Greyhound with their orange Hefty bag luggage and head back to whatever rock they crawled out from under to come here. We hose down the spots they have skulked and lolled around so as to wash away the dreck foul odours and soon all is good and happy again. We are hoping it will be real soon.

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.

The best City in Alberta! We've got the Flames, who are getting to be a really strong team. We also have the "Best outdoor show on earth", known to be the Calgary Stampede. Which by the way is a blast to go to. To agree with Edmonton people, I don't think it should be the Capital, we wouldn't want a bunch of political crap in our city. Not to mention we can drive 45 minutes and be at some amazing skiing and snowboarding locations. So to sum up this definition. Calgary is the place to be. (We are also wicked rich). By the way, Practically no one has mullets and every city on earth has sluts. We kick booty.
Welcome To Calgary, The Most Wicked Cool City In Alberta.

The coolest place in Alberta. Home to lots of hot chicks. Yes, there are some sluts, but what place doesn't have them? Hosts the Calgary Stampede, known as "the greatest outdoor show on earth." The Stampede kicks the ass out of Klondike Days! And for all you idiots we do to have fucking trees! The coolest place...
I live in the most amazing place ever, being Calgary.
