I love the people of my city ... the high- educated as well as low-educated, i only moved to Calgary in 1997 and i didn't speak a word of english back then... I only spoke french ...Calgarians were never rednecks to me ... as matter of fact they tried to learn my french and teach me their english , they always had and always will have open arms to anyone from anywhere...
JonB.. i hope one day u change ur mind ...
I have to disagree. I like most of Alberta; I hate Calgary. I moved here in 1988. While I was growing up, a proper Albertan Conservative supporter, I loved this whole province.
As I got older, and gained a little insight into the world around me, I grew to recognise that the vast majority of Albertans (Calgarians in particular) are a bunch of uneducated, spoiled brats. They drive like the dickheads they are, and feel completely justified in treating those beneith them (socio-economically) like crap.
Serving the people of this city has only worsened my distain. Listening to the callers on the local talk radio station makes me angry every day. I can't wait to get out of this craphole and go somewhere else.

Jeezeus LRG, I'm sure you can connect the dots here..... pffffft
Cdn- said:but with the amount of un-educated people u claim Calgary has , I think we are doing a pretty good job running and being the back bone of the country - with all due respect to people from other provinces-

Maybe one day, I'll end up in Calgary.
LittleRunningGag said:I notice that the other comments I made seem to have no arguments against them. Ok, lets assume that there are some people in this province that have education, although it isn't a prerequisite for being a decent human being, what about the other traits I mentioned?

Hey Toro. I found the one time that I went to Tallahassee that it kind of reminded me more of a small city in Nova Scotia with the small rolling hills and all the trees.
Calgary is nothing like that.

Lassie said:Can you imagine despising an entire Province? I can't, there's arse picks where ever you live, but to dislike an entire Province, shaking head. I've lived all over Canada and the one with the attitude is usually me until I give the Province a chance.
Toro said:If it was brown and dry, it would be like Calgary! :wink:
Sassylassie said:LRG, you just need a change. Come to NS, you want to talk about Culture Shock well I get one radio station and it has a program called "The Trading Post" oh my god it is so funny. People call and sell things on air, one old fella has been trying to sell two fishing rods, and two leather coats and an 8 track the "Plays some good" for six months. The only song the Radio plays is Jesus take the Wheel, and god how I wish he would. The new dump is being hailed by the locals as nicer than any Provincial Park. Yes the guys who work at the dump give tours. Please don't get me started!

I always liked visiting Banff. My reserve unit did our Remembrance Day parade there and we were always treated great.
Lrg. Edmonton or Calgary? Man, you got it bad.

Speaking as someone who grew up in Dartmouth (across the harbour from Halifax), the whole freakin place isn't covered with shellfish :lol:
I don't like shellfish so I managed to avoid them my whole life. It's not one gigantic fishing village. The Halifax area is actually a real city.
