    They might do something crazy like spend $1.5bln on a pipeline that doesn’t get built.

    Alberta Provincial Politics

    This is exactly why conservative politics in Alberta are in a position where they could end up losing elections for the next decade or more. The cause of this is a big shift in the Calgary vote over the past few years. The rural vote hasn’t changed, they are still socially conservative, and...

    Calgary | Era | 41.15m | 13s | Minto Group

    Exactly what I was thinking. Should have been 16-18 storeys.

    I’m down with the mostly white look. Simpler and cleaner.

    Calgary | Stephen Avenue Quarter | 214m | 66s | Triovest | Gibbs Gage

    Good points. One point of clarification, The Bow itself is built on what was an empty parking lot, with maybe one business on it iirc. The real crime was the York hotel portion. The list shows how much vibrancy has been lost due to office towers. Downtown is a victim of its own success. It’s...

    General Construction Updates

    The lighting could be better, but I like that there is at least some uplighting. Hopefully the colors are selectable.

    Nicer or at least as nice. Solid design imo.

    I don’t know if this ever happens, but I wonder if the developer has already talked to people at the city and the city has told them the proposal looks good and so they are getting prepared for when it does go through.

    I had more time to kill today :) Inspired by the photoshop post of the new event centre I decided to make a thread showing the most popular posts (by number of likes) I'm sure there are lots that are missing from the list. Most popular Non Construction posts 53 likes - Calgary Event Centre...

    Sucks that the last one on here is part of the unbuilt section.

    Water-cooler discussion thread

    I definitely have too much time on my hands today. I was looking at that post showing the two different versions of the arena, and how it had 36 likes. I can't think of any other post even close to that except the one below at 24 likes. Any other superstar posts out there? 36 likes 24 likes

    Weird. I voted, but it doesn't show my result. I tried to vote again and it says I already voted. 🤔

    Another choice could be, D: I prefer another bird, but would be happy with the Magpie ;) Just for the record, I prefer the American Golden finch, simply because of the colors.

    Calgary Bike Lanes and Bike Paths

    I love the idea of a bike lane/cycle track down 14th st SW. That'd be fantastic. When I lived up in that area I always wished they had a nice direct way to get downtown.
