Huffington Post

CTV News
Frigid temperatures, the coldest in 20 years in Calgary, prompted many residents to turn up the heat and gobble up more power.

Global News
It's looking increasingly like Alberta isn't just returning to the heady years of its last oil boom — it's trumping them. The latest piece of evidence comes in the form of inter-provincial population trends, or the number of people moving in and out of each province.
