I've only been to Calgary and Winnipeg. We used to visit Calgary every winter for Flames games and we've been in the summer while on our way to Banff. We love Calgary. My husband still dreams of owning a loft in downtown Calgary.

We've been to Winnipeg once. That was one too many times.

Calgary has a fairly big city feel if you work in the corporate environment downtown, but yet offers the charm of a smaller town vibe to the people that live there. Leans conservative and white collar energy & investment folks, but plagued by big box stores, chains and a lack of diversity of entertainment long term.

Vancouver: Better climate, better overall natural environment, much better connectivity to other amenities as well as other major cities (Whistler, Vancouver Island, Okanagan region, Seattle, Portland), more diversity, significantly better food and entertainment & recreational options. Vancouver offers a much more upscale standard of lifestyle and is much better connected and more significant globally. Leans liberal and a mixture of creatives and white collar professionals, but wide swaths of the population are totally beleaguered by absurd housing and cost of living.

I found them to be very different cities, both excellent to live in, that just happens to be in the same geographic half in one country.

City vs. City is a sub-thread to General U.S.

Who cares? It meets terms and conditions, you might want to read them.
This has been done in city vs city (essentially what this thread is by definition) before and nothing new here..

Montreal vs Toronto vs Vancouver (American perspective)


Moving on.....maybe we'll see a San Jose vs. Calgary thread coming soon, LOL.

Edmonton has the most character of these three cities.

As a Canadian myself, I can see where cornsnicker is coming from, and donít believe that he/she bears any malice towards us Canucks. After all, all three of the cities being compared are Canadian.

I love Canada and Canadians.

I erroneously thought the post belonged on the Canadian threads. City vs City permits any North America comparison as one user kindly pointed out via the sticky. My mistake.
