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.
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.
A fucking awesome city, with the saddledome, Calgary tower (WITH A FUCKING AWESOME SEE THROUGH FLOORING!!), Legendary theaters, One Egyptian temple themed, and the other one is based on the roman coliseum. We have a PYRAMID shaped library thats genius. We have the stampede, globalfest, AWESOME malls , lots of hangouts, EVERYTHING, C.O.P., We should be The capital of the country because we are the fastest, richest growing city in all the fucking country.
Calgary Owns French Canada up the ass, and Edmonton.
Dude-1:"So what do you want to do today in Calgary?"
Dude-1:"I dunno there is to much to do!! *raging orgasm*"
N. The best city in Alberta. Fuck Wait. The best mother fuckin city in Canada period.
Calgary beats the living shit out of butfuck Edmonton. The Saddledome is ill, olympic park is a beaty, you can see the rockies, the C train gets you from A to B and the Stamps are gonna do it one of these years. Plus the Calgary Stampede is dope.
I've only been once but the girls are generally nice clean and well raised upper middle class that dress nice as fuck and are just straight up hot. It is also a clean town with lots to do and it isn't full of left wing hippies like other big cities. That is why it beats the fuck out of dirty cesspools like Toronto.
* If you're a straight cowboy, you'll like Calgary. If you're one of em brokeback queerballs I reckon you head east for Toronto.
the best city in the world....Syke shit calgary is full of borind white peolpe and trashy white nigga digging hoes. But theres is a plus you get tooo see some of the wolrds finet black females and we also get 600$ dollarsbefore the end of 06. So although it's not the best place for non redneck hockey loving crakers, it's still alot better then Edmonton, a city with one mall and fucking ugly people thats eriously need to conesied EXTREME MAKEOVER. Oh and it's not better than Toronto, cause they got some fynr niggas up in there, nice clothes and people actually now of it. If you tell soembody that you're from calgary they won't know where it is.
i hate calgary it's really boring but shit we getting payed 600$.
