calgary cowboy culture
Every symbol has more than one meaning. Indeed, when I was contemplating the move out from the east, the perception among the locals about this City was limited. ("It's cold" "All yahoos out there" "There is nothing to do there socially" "They are not friendly over there" "It snows all the time" "There is no public transit, you have to buy a car") And none of the above turned out to be true. In fact, as I soon realized, Calgary was very much the opposite of all these notions.
