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.

Perhaps the City of Calgary should be called the Shitty of Calgary, or better yet,
Calgary has some serious problems that appear to only be getting worse.

Located in the transition zone between the foothills of the Rockies and the prairies, Calgary is a dry, treeless city where the grass is never really green. Amazingly enough, this reflects Calgary's personality perfectly.

When I was at my cousin's house in the south of the city, I walked down the path that led away from his backyard and stood on the edge of the hill. Before me was a vast exapnse of brown covered in rows upon rows of cookie-cutter suburbs with no trees. Everything was so new, so spread out and so ugly. If one said the city had a soul, this would be it.

Edmonton is well on its way to becoming like this.
There is nothing to which to compare Calgary, at least not that I know of. Its lifelessness is one of a kind.

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.

n. Etymologists are divided over whether it derives from the Latin word, calgarus, meaning "crass," or a blackfoot word, calgaree, meaning, "strange race in cowboy boots who guzzle thick black liquid from the ground ." In current colloquial usage it is slang for "second-best."
Leno is just so calgary compared to Letterman.

The part of Canada that thinks it's Texas.
