    I love the dramatic overhang in that shot. Too bad it'll be lost when the glazing goes up. She'd be such a beauty if she were brut.

    Calgary | The Edward | 16.46m | 5s

    Looks a damn sight better than most seniors developments we're accustomed to. This stinkbomb comes to mind.

    Oh yeah totally. Right now it looks like its stuck in two time periods and not really accomplishing either. It might have been a bit too much of today's fashion if they had gone with black paneling around the windows and white painted brick, but it would have been pretty sharp. Pretty much any...

    Awesome post! I have a number of reasons for being a monarchist personally and your response touches very heavily on one of them. I dont think the ceremonial and traditional aspects of the role of the monarchy are simply of peripheral importance either. I think their power to bring people...

    This is the view North from floor 7 of the South Health Campus. Downtown is supposed to be right in the middle of the shot, but it's been draped in fog and snow since yesterday evening.

    It's not a Statscan number, but it's demographic news anyway: Calgary's Population is up by one today!;)

    There's another interesting article from Tristin Hopper in the Post. Lately they've been critical of Governor General's performance and Hopper tends to like to take a common topic and explore a small piece of it in minute detail or carry some part of it off on a tangent. His article is about...

    The highways are packed with locals to be sure, but I think the majority of the people visiting the Parks in the summer are from further afield. It's the ski hills that'll probably be worse off. But maybe at 5M we might get some new ones! :D Population is power. Cities, countries, provinces, it...

    Calgary Transit

    Nice video! The gap in the system due North is uuuuuugly! I wonder if it would be plausible to extend the airport connection Westward in the heavily residential areas to the North. (Crazier still, send it all the way to the Red Line) At least as far as where Beddington become Symons Valley...

    They'd probably win over a bunch of people just by revising the 9:30pm end time for playground zones and reinstating school zones.

    Really cool shots indeed! I like the 3rd thumbnail shot. The one from the tracks. It makes Sky look like a nuclear power plant cooling tower.

    Moose are totally cool in urban environments. :rolleyes: Great looking project though. Almost a shame it'll be in the part of town where those 25 years of age and up will soon fear to tread. ;)

    It sure is! The fact that we've never seen it before makes me wonder if this is totally unintentional.

    Ah good times! Any other WCHS alumni? That's a really outstanding shot of Bridgeland too.

    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    DOUBLE POST! :eek:o_O:rolleyes::D I heard only the tail end of the Flames-Oilers preseason game that involved a lot of the prospects and PTOs on both sides. The Flames completely fell apart in the third and ended up blowing a 3-2 lead in a 7-4 (with empty netter) loss. They really crapped it in...

    Calgary Flames Official Thread

    I stayed up late to watch the game. I made it through two periods, but the second intermission did me in so I missed some of the Flames best moments live. I thought the ice was tiled in the Flames favour for the majority of the game. If it wasn't for that one prolonged lapse in the first it...
