Arts & Culture

Dear Calgary,

Thank you for your community, your big beautiful sky, your sane mayor, your growing sense of culture, your chinooks in february, your legendary skyline, your bike lanes, and your adorable suit and tie guys downtown. You're just the best. xo

Housing

Dear Calgary,

Your can-do attitude and tight-knit community bonds are what helped us recover so quickly from 2013's flooding. Nice work.

People & Diversity

Dear Calgary,

Thank you for welcoming me into your city with open arms. Once, I hated that I called you home but, boy, was I stupid and wrong for saying that. You are a land of great freedom and beauty. Because of you, I have met some of the most amazing people that I could, probably, never let go of and because of them I am at peace and glad with my decision to leave my hometown for this amazing city.

Transportation

Dear Calgary,

We've had our ups and downs - I was born and raised here, and left you for another city (Vancouver). While there, I came to realize, while it was gorgeous, no place is like home. Your transit system and roads suck the life out of me, and the cold takes my breath away, but you have a heart of gold, and I am finally happy to say, I am proud to be a Calgarian. Love, Britt
