Funny, because some 20 years ago Canada was behind. Now it is richer, better organised, more socially equal, better educated, etc... How things change...

And the Bow is just a beauty. So glad it is nearing completion. It will be the beacon for Calgary. Congratulations!!!
OK Looking good Calgary!I would respond more to that posters post but I'm not making this a country vs. country debate!

Granted, but without the USA, Canada's economy would be half its size. Cheers to competition, eh?

It's really weird that Australia is so wealthy without being on your border.

Back to the Bow, and away from the Country vs Country stuff. Thank you!

Love this picture... my special thanks to Ferreth and you for sharing this with us.

Let's get back to the thread and don't discuss who/where is better nonsense really.

Each country has its own charms and powers and luckily, as far as I am concerned, both Canada and Australia are doing it well due to their policy and strong relationships with China, Brazil, Russia and India.

And what I know, is that almost MOST of you do not really have an idea what is going on out there on world's stage.

So, please let's back to the thread Thank you and

Last time I checked, Calgary was 15% American. There's no need to be giving a constant backhand to the US.

Anyways... can't wait to see the finished product, how many more months?

Yeah Australia's economy is based on selling its resources. Australia would be half it's size without China. 73% of Canada's exports went to the USA in 2009. Im sure they wouldn't be doing so well without their Southern Neighbor. But anyway, cant wait to see the Bow completed!!
