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.
edmontonian:"Calgary sucks waah,waaa,waaah..."

calgarian:"shutup you jealous prick"

most hated city in canada, even though it keep this country afloat. best jobs, most money, hottest girls.. must be why were so hated, everyones jealous. while were raking in the dough, buying new cars and houses, the rest of the country is either getting layed off from car factorys or cod fishing or complaining about why were so rich, just shutup and take ur ei cheques and go back to your pathetic existances. now if only the fagget easterners go back to ur fishing towns(new brunswik), wanna be hollywood fake ass gangsters go back to your made up ghettos(ontario) or worst of all fucking fagget ass frog frenchman fudgepackers go back to eating pouteen or whatever you do, when will you finally seperate so we finally dont have listen to ur stupid pussy ass threats. i have an idea, how about ALBERTA seperates, we'll take our money, oil and everything else the rest of the country mooches off of us and the rest of canada can go fuck themselves. take that bitch

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!!
calgary is a pretty chill city

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.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada is only aprox. 80 km(50m) from the Canadian Rockies. With a population of over 1,000,000 it is the largest municipality in Alberta and 3rd largest city in Canada.

Downtown is small but there are some pretty great places. Uptown 17th ave is great for shopping, as well as the Core (TD, the Bay, Scotia Center, Holt Renfrew). Great restaurants, pubs, bars and lots of oil companies.

Great pot in this city, and great prices. Fun club scene, and great pubs.

Calgary Stampede comes every second week of July, and its the only time this city lives up to its hick stereotype. Alberta is full of small municipalities with huge trucks, fields of cows and horses, and more liquor stores per capita then anywhere else but the larger cities within Alberta are not anything like this despite what you may have heard.

The summer time weather can usually be very hot and dry, but only rarely reaches 30C. It commonly rains and even snows during summer, but it is likely that it will clear up within 15 minutes. Winter is cold here, I kid you not we have at least 6 or 7 months of it here too. With temperatures dropping well below 0, too -25 and lower.

Commonly called: Calgs, Ctown, Cowtown, YYC, 401
Pronounced Cal-grie not Cal-gary
Where can i buy this for cheaper?

While personally i'd move to calgary cause the tax is only 5%

A grossly overrated, sad excuse for a city that is filled with soulless, greedy individuals who think they are the shit. A town of red neck racists and nerds who think they got it goin on but seriously lack any sense of culture or heritage. A town with no appreciation for little things like art...music...comedy or indviduality. Its filled with clones and white collar wannabes (male and female).The females are the worst kind...Fake, stuck up and money hungry. The dudes are mostly quasi-homosexuals who have no swagger whatsoever and rely completely on their leased Escalades to attract these wack bitches. Just a sad sight to see. Having lived and worked in both Calgary and Edmonton, I gotta go with Etown every time. I suppose its what your into really. Neither is particularly amazing, but Cowtown really just has NO heart. And for my money, I prefer to stay down the REAL people(Edmontonians) and stay far away from all the fakers and the haters(Calgarians).
Yeah, my favorite band is coming to Calgary, but I will definitley drive to Edmonton to go see them cuz atleast they know how to party up there!! This place WEEEEAAAAAKKKK!!!
