I'm surprised you're still enthusiastic about your move after our INSANE snow storm!
The weather in Calgary is always interesting - I guess the many economic/social positives do make up for the crazy weather though.

hi , I have been living in Montreal since one year , really , I can't get along with French although I can communicate in French , but I mean real French of France but here they speak Quebecoise , so they are crazy here about French even if you meet an old lady at bus stop and asks you when the next bus comes and you answer in English, you should be ready to listen to lecture on how the Quebecers should preserve their francophone identity .plus, when u apply to any job , get ready to the first question , are you perfect bilingual , sorry Montreal , I am fed up , Calgary is my destination. Mainly I don't care about parties or down town here at all , I care about jobs and good education for my sun .

So you've been living there for a year, claim to speak at least some French, but when someone asks you a simple question like when the bus is coming you can't answer them in French?

Its a portion of the quebec government that responds to anonymous complaints filed from citizens of they feel a business is not functioning in French. If you own a business and you greet a customer by saying "bonjour, Hi" you can be fined by the Office Quebecois de la langue francais, because you said "Hi"
