When I moved out, we stayed in a furnished short term rental for 3 months. It was $1600 a month near McKnight and the Deerfoot. Great spot for learning your way around the north end of the city. I think they allow month to month rentals with 30 days notice.

Looks like u can use the transcananda, should be decent.

From my limited experience 17ave to chestermere was terrible, always some kind of jam going once it goes to the SE.

Always good to get a rough idea. You see a small section of road, but it might be the worst section in the city. So just trying to compare my different options.

Funny enough, I checked with google traffic. I see two red sections on 17ave

Sweet! Time to start signing up for summer sports soon... I've met a lot of people in the city. More friends here than after living 29 years in Ontario.
