Sometimes first impressions...

I know a little Calgary bashing is to be expected in the progressive blogosphere.  My home town is the center of gravity for the Conservative Party and the Oil industry - to the extent that those are in any way  two different entities.  It's where Stephen Harper calls home - or at least where his riding is.  Ezra Levant, Rob Anders, the Calgary School...shit, you've got me convinced, I'm living in one giant tea party rally in the shape of a city.

Oh yeah, and it looks like we just became the first major Canadian city to elect a Muslim as Mayor.

Remember that Calgary's longest lasting mayor was a socialist, Andrew Davison.

And the CCF was founded here. Calgary defies expectations in a lot of ways.
