Since When Does Calgary Hate Arrogance?
Bridget Brown

Oh that’s funny, I’m a woman of color and when I visited Calgary 4 years ago for 36 hours I was shocked by the intolerance I received just by my mere existence. Just one example: a man literally instructed me to perform oral sex on him because I was walking across a driveway that he wanted to cross; he had to wait 10 seconds. When my Canadian friends found out I didn’t enjoy Calgary they told me they weren’t surprised. They hadn’t said anything to me because they didn’t want to burst my bubble; none of them like Calgary. I’ve spent a lot of time in Canada — and I have always loved it — but I have no plans to return to Calgary.
