vdeane:
The Canadian phrase comes from an old tradition in the British Parliament which involved an actual table.

Big John:
The opposite American phrase also came about literally placing a bill to be killed on a specified table.

Southeast Stoney Trail (Highway 201) around Calgary opened to traffic today. That's 25 km of six-lane freeway.

(they used the wrong week in the press release, they state it opened Friday 15 November, but it's Friday 22 November, perhaps they'll correct this).

Back to Calgary I go, I suppose.

AsphaltPlanet:
I have been following the construction of both Calgary's and Edmonton's ring roads for the past little while.  While it is undoubtably great for both cities, in terms of freeway design, both 201 and 216 look pretty vanilla.  Only the Deerfood and maybe Glenmore Trail in Calgary look like they'd be any fun to drive.

Some of the roads through the foothills look promising though.
