For years here in B.C. I have gotten used to the government constantly extolling the blistering heat of our "red hot" economy.

In an attempt to protect the public’s perception of Calgary as a safe city, civic officials have developed a series of fines ranging from $50 for carrying a knife to $300 for urinating in public.
"As our population hit a million, we were getting more and more people who seem to feel they can do whatever they want," said Ald. Craig Burrows, one of the supporters of the initiative.
