Video: Is Calgary the "city of the future"?

Post Date: Sunday, October 14, 2012

In early October, Toronto Star reporter Christopher Hume visited Calgary and had a chat with Mayor Nenshi. In this video, Hume suggests that Calgary may just be the Canadian city of the future. His discussion with Mayor Nenshi includes talk about the greatest challenge facing all Canadian cities: paying for the infrastructure we need to support the more than 80% of Canadians who live in cities. 

Here's a quote from Mayor Nenshi in this interview:
When you have a great city, people invest in it and you actually grow the economy. And if we can't continue to provide cities that are attractive for people to live in, then we lose that economic engine.
