Located in western Canada, Alberta, Calgary is home to many talented musicians such as Tegan and Sara, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, The Dudes.

Downtown is small, and has many homeless, although fewer within the past few years. They add character if you ask me. Mostly, the corporates are oil companies, oil being a natural resource of alberta.

A LRT(light rail train) system, the Ctrain, has been expanding to every corner of the city. With hopes to help with our traffic problem perhaps.

I love it honestly. Usually you can seen the mountains which are beautiful. Always pot, good club scene, definitely good shopping, Chinook Center is has been expanded twice and included Urban Outfitters, Abercrombie, Forever 21, Burberry, Coach, Aritzia, TNA, Stuart Weizman, etc.. Awesome foodcourt with a merry go round in it, and planes on a track on the ceiling. Downtown shopping is good, there is a Holt Renfrew. Check out TD. Cross Iron Mills blows even though it is high recommended for its size.

Calgary Stampede is a week long fair that is held on the Stampede grounds which has a rodeo, fireworks every night, a midway(rides and grub), performers on the CocaCola stage, and is basically a week long drinking party. This is were the cowboy rumor started about us i believe. Its not so true but still welcome.

Calgary was mentioned in Weeds season 6 near the beginning of the season, as was the stampede.

Commonly referred as; Calgs, Cowtown, Ctown, YXC, 403
Pronounced Cal-grie not Cal-gar-ie

Calgary is a very diverse city, some people say that its all white redneck city and that's bull. you go to the northeast and the whole area is brown-town go to the northwest its all Asians go to the southeast and you have entered the ghetto, and southwest is where all the stuck up white people who think their all sophisticated and wealthy just because they live in an all white neighborhood ( the biggest houses are in the northeast and the northwest ), and though it is a bit of a redneck city but it is not all rednecks, and has a population of 1,352,200 people most of them immigrants. the education system is alright. and jobs are mainly in the oil industry though there are also alot of diversity. about an hour drive from the rockies, a recipient of the Chinook wave which makes winters with average temp. of 40 degrees Celsius bearable. summers are very different with temp. up to 35 degrees one day and a lightening storm the next ( tornado warnings are common) oh and the calgary stampede with is well basically a carnival cept you get to watch races and bullriding and all sorts of thingsl ike that . well all in all calgary is a fun city with alot of do and its still growing!!

The best city in Canada. Has the Flames, the new Stampeders, and the Calgary Stampede, the greatest outdoor show on earth. Madtroll, you are a dick and have probably never been to Calgary. It's a beautiful city full of life and culture. You are probably a redneck bumpkin living in Alabama. But that's besides the point. Calgary is a great city. Hot girls, good bars, good times.
Dude, let's go to Calgary. It's sweet.

Calgary is the fastest growing country in Canada. has an awesome NHL Hockey Team called the Flames (not to be confused with flamers, who make up most of edmonton`s population) and a really good CFL Football team the stampeders (apparently, The Rock used to play for them). Houses the World-Renowned Calgary Stampede. There is much more to say about the city, but one really important thing is that Calgary IS the cleanest city in the world. look: http://i38.tinypic.com/oaps34.jpg

The largest city in alberta and the best city in Canada.
With a population of just over a million people it is big but not too big.Its great location in the shadow of the rocky mountains is not only beautiful but also allows calgary to experience chinook winds during the long cold prarie winter.
Calgary is also much cleaner than other simular sized cities such as winnipeg or edmonton.
The popluation of Calgary is very diverse and is not just a bunch of cowboys and white collar pricks as many edmontonians will have you beleive.

Calgary is a awesome place to live.
