True, but usually the rankings are done using questionable variables,and by outside firms.
It's got to mean something when the prime minister of the country flat out says Calgary's the greatest city, and then in a national poll by citizens across the country Calgary ranks number one as the best city in Canada as well. Also, shortly after, a separate poll by Angus Reid showed citizens ranked Calgary as having the highest quality of life of all the major cities in Canada.
Pretty good month for Calgary, along with the hundreds of other national/international news stories covering the stampede, record crowds, and record tourist activity.
I'm really contemplating moving here within the next few months along with seemingly a lot of out of town visitors, based on ramblings on the streets. The city could be on the verge of record growth years, with a solid economy, and a growing global presence.
There's an energy/optimism again in Calgary that's very hard to match
