Edmonton has far better parks and recreation than Calgary, and as far as trees in Calgary (what trees), Calgary is mostly brown, ugly and treeless year round. Calgary is cold year round winter and summer, and dry as a desert.
Traffic in Edmoton is not doubt one the best places in the world to drive through, and trains are underground, buses run fast and quick. Calgary forget it!, one of the worst place's to drive through, you will never get anywhere fast (traffic lights everywhere speed and red light cameras everywhere ready to steal your money) and there are not enough roads and only one freeway to drive on making it almost impossible to drive through. Tansit don't even go there, your better off walking or you will freeze your ass off if you don't get mugged.
Resturants in Calgary are always busy, messy, and dirty. Food severs are mean, slow, messy and hate there jobs. Hotels are highly expensive if you can even get a room, and hotel clerks treat you like garbage, your better off going to vegas.
you can't park anywhere in Calgary and downtown you have to empty your wallet to park on the street, never mind your bank accout in a parkade.
Everything is expensive in Calgary and unless your a fat rich oilman your really nothing and treated like nothing.
In Calgary there are bum's and homeless people everywhere, crime is rampant and out of control. You can't walk the steets at night and you can't sleep at night because of all the sireins and police helicopters flying over your head all night.
Every year 10 thousand people move to calgary, (because the economy sucks everywhere else in Canada), making the city a living hell to live in. Most people are under the age of 30 mostly from the east and they hate old people.
The color red is everywhere stampede, flames eveything is red from flags to monuments to public buildings, train stations, red everywhere, there is no other colors just ugly bright bloody red, it goes with the ugly brown grass. it's gross, ugly, and makes me want to puke.
Calgary has no vision or imagination, no other colors in Calgary just red and brown. Calgary has hardly any trees, the buildings are ugly as hell even new ones that go up look even worse (no thought at all in the attractiveness of the design). The new homes in Calgary are all the same and look like match boxs all bunched together no space between them. There is no level ground anywhere in Calgary, your always going either up or down.
The service everywhere is very bad, Calgarians are ugly, mean, and pushy, most people are from the east they are not true westerners, there is no true western spirit or hospitality.
Edmonton is a far better place to live
