It may seem like an odd thought. After all, Calgary’s downtown is very quiet. Other than the Stampede, or an occasional Flames playoff run, it seems like people go and work downtown and generally head home.
But what if, and it’s a big what if, Calgary looked at an 24 hour downtown. Like Montreal did, for example.
Last week, The Quebec government partnered with the City of Montreal bestow some specific neighbourhoods 24 hour access. Which means in a nutshell, if your business is in those areas, you can have your store open for 24 hours.

Now let’s imagine for a moment areas like 17th Ave SW had this access. Or, Stephen Avenue. Would you support that?
Would that help to revive downtown Calgary?
