As you know we are based in Calgary, Alberta, one of Canada’s fastest growing cities. When I moved here in 1998 from Ottawa I felt like I had stepped into a modern western. I couldn’t believe how many pick-up trucks there were on the road. I also saw guys walking around with cowboy hats on. In Ottawa we would only see cowboys if it was Halloween. I’m not talking about how hick Calgary is because it is definitely NOT. You see Calgary has seen a lot of growth in the 6 plus years that I have been here. Sure there are remnants of the Wild West but Calgary has changed into a cosmopolitan city of 1 million people. The following is a top ten list that proves Calgary isn’t your little friendly city on the prairie any more. Or is Calgary just returning to its “Wild West” roots?

Top ten things that prove that Calgary has grown up:

10) Drive by shootings in Chinatown
9) Drive by shootings on our freeways
8) Frequent stabbings at houseparties and nightclubs
7) Boyfriends killing ex-girlfriends.
6) Large grow-ops busted weekly
5) Police brutality
3) Hip hop station Vibe 98.5 bringing a bit of gangsta to Calgary
2) Homes frequently selling for 1 million dollars
1) Only one remaining stoplight on Deerfoot Trail (Calgary’s main freeway)
