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

A pretentious city with delusions of grandeur and penis envy (Toronto's dick is way bigger). I equate Calgary to the farmboy redneck who just won the lottery and bought himself a new car, new clothes and a fancy house. You may look good, you may have money, but Calgary you still have no class or sophistication, because deep down you are still a redneck.
Gee wiz look at me, I am Calgary - a hip and cool place because of all that oil money that I dug up from the ground but didn't really have to use by brains or ingenuity to create. Shhh, please don't tell my master Toronto.

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.

Calgary rocks
* 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.

A sterile, livable and modest Canadian city, with professional sports teams for entertainment. A stone's throw from the Rockies, but that doesn't actually affect the quality of the city.
It's not even close to a "world city", but Calgary has the most potential to grow of any Canadian city. With the oil economy, the imigrants are coming from across the globe and local art scenes will develop.
A city with some minority of fanatics that really like to insult Toronto for no apparent reason. But they are not the voice of the city.
Calgarian: "Fuck Toronto, those pakis and gangster wannabes can stay where they are. Calgary is so much better, we have the stampede."

Torontonian: "Calgary's pretty cool, I love Banff and the Rockies. Last time I was there I missed the stampede by a couple of days, and didn't really do anything memorable. Stop talking bullshit about my hometown! It's a lot more dynamic in the arts, dining, diversity and the neighbourhoods. If crime gets worse and the city becomes dirtier, I'll consider Calgary, but we've got some unique ideas. Watch out."

Calgarian: "I suppose I've never lived back east, I don't really know. Mind you, I don't have much to complain about either."

clean, sterile and very unfriendly city in the middle of nowhere. the only culture is macdonalds. it has nothing of interest.
most people hate calgary, it is unliveable in the winter due to the hostile climate.
most people who live in calgary are rednecks. the only difference to texas is the climate and the fact that everything is 50% more expensive in calgary.
like in texas rednecks do not believe in science, most people here believe in superstition, the average education is extremely low.
the only attraction here are the mountains. anyway, the bc side of the rockies is more beautiful and the people are nicer there.
highlight for the rednecks is the annual animal torture show.
in normal countries people celebrate by singing and dancing. rednecks in calgary celebrate by torturing and killing healthy animals like horses and bulls.

the government in alberta/calgary is bloated. cost of living is one of the highest in the world.

doctors are impossible to find, refuse service to customers.

in case of a disease you will need to go to a hospital.

A city trying it's best to be as good as Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver before it's oil runs out and it turns into Canada's first Detroit. Bunch of red neck wannabes walking around in their cowboy hats eating beef and fattening up like the grease pigs they are. In the middle of nowhere, only talked about because they have oil. To bad Alberta couldn't start drilling for class and style 2 things missing from this bubble soon to burst. Claim to be Canadian but act more like a bunch of racist whities from Texas. SUV loving, freeway driving, suburban dwelling, city sprawling, environment raping, meat swallowing, air polluting, cowboy riding, animal abusing bunch of Hillbillies.
Calgary is the biggest waste of time.

A city in Alberta, Western Canada. A right-wing, oil-rich, poorly planned-out traffic jam that is run by faux-cowboy hicks who have lots of money but no idea how to spend it practically or efficiently. Calgary is the homeless capital of the world. There are so many bums downtown that they might actually constitute a voting block. Calgary is also the rape capital of Canada, sexual assaults on women being a favorite pastime for immigrants and locals alike. Calgary is also chock full of drug-gangs, grow-ops, and mentally-ill street codgers. The courts don't actually lock-up criminals, instead they let them out after 12 hours of cushy containment. Watch out for swarming immigrant teenagers who will beat the shit out of you for the fun of it. The hockey team sucks, too.
Calgary has a billion-dollar surplus but more bums than Southeast Asia.
