CALGARY – What do the Pumphouse Theatre, the Beakernight street festival and a grocery store offering some of the best fast food in town have in common?
They’re all in Sunalta, one of Calgary’s oldest communities.
Watch as Linda Olsen and Gord Gillies take the News Hour on the road to the heart of a neighbourhood that’s a hidden gem – for now, that is. Sunalta is the proposed site of a massive sports complex that would include a new Flames arena.
We heard from Calgary Flames President Ken King about a mega project that could bring some mega changes to this community just west of downtown.
WATCH FULL INTERVIEW: Global Calgary’s Linda Olsen chats with Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation president Ken King about the CalgaryNext project.
We also explored Sunalta’s history, heard from people who wouldn’t dream of living anywhere else and got a sneak preview of Beakernight, the biggest party in town over the weekend. And yes, we checked out that fab fast food and the convenience store chefs who dish it out.
