    I have the possibility of relocating to Calgary (new job etc). Whilst I have had a quick googleyoogley and it sounds great; I'd like to know about it from those macrumarians who actually work and/or live there.

    Whats it really like to live there? Whats the intellectual social life like (I am not a clubber, I prefer a good coffee shop with a book (a macbook of course)) ;)

    Whats the downers to being in Calgary (and trust me the cold is on my plus side!) - I hate the heat.

    so tell me anything you want about Calgary please?

    Well never lived there but was talking to a friend who does a couple of weeks ago he is paying $2000 a month for a 3 bedroom condo so your salary better be pretty good, he was telling me the 1 bedrooms for anything decent is in the $1000+ range.

    Alberta is like the Texas of Canada, except it's better. :p

    You'll have plenty of snow, mountains, natural gas, and beef.
