I remember when I was attending university and worked at Heritage Park one summer as a Gate Hostess. We were, naturally, dressed in period costume, which was great fun in itself. But it was also very enjoyable meeting people from all over the world who came to our wonderful city as tourists. Naturally, there is a lot to be proud of in beautiful Alberta, including the giving nature of its people.

One couple from England were leaving the Park as it was about to close, and they wondered how to get to the nearest C-train station. They had no vehicle and asked how far it would be to walk to the C-train. I told them I would be happy to drive them there if they could just wait the ten minutes or so until my shift was done. They were so surprised and appreciative. As a Calgarian I thought nothing of it, but they told me no one would make such an offer back where they were from. I was proud to represent Canada, and Calgary specifically, in demonstrating the kindness and hospitality we are known for worldwide!
