“...When I broke down, I always thought I’d go to Calgary.”
Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Home of the Stampede, oil wealth, Lanny McDonald’s moustache and Bret “the Hitman” Hart. What’s not to love?
Gord referenced the city as the saviour of Canada during a live show there in 2011. “Save us Calgary!” Because of its oil wealth and growing population (and Bret “the Hitman” Hart, let’s be honest) Calgary is gaining stature and influence in a country that was once defined by its eastern metropolises. Hey Calgary, the National Energy Program was a noble policy set on fostering the greater good for all Canadians. Yep, it’s true. Send me yer angry emails.
