Public services are mostly good here in Calgary and the other cities of Canada as well. What is important is people, their safety, their valuable time, their health and so on. Calgary municipality has good traffic services and I rarely have a problem in that area. Different services are provided through Internet including traffic cameras, payments, weather condition, schedules, etc. One of the interesting ones which was caught by my eyes is cameras. There're cameras installed in busy intersections and you easily can see how the traffic goes through your desktop monitor in your office at work or at home or if you're somewhere which wireless service is provided, through your laptop. City of Calgary website provides all mentioned services.
