I'm a Canadian, raised in Vancouver, so no offense intended.
While Calgary may be #3 in Canada, it's tiny by comparison to most major US airports. I travel 50% of the time, and fly everywhere in the US. Trust me, Calagary is equivalent to a regional airport.
More importantly, you cannot get direct connections to Calgary from many American cities. And, if you can, the cost is in the stratsophere.
Flying to Calgary is easy, and inexpensive in Canada. Not so from the US.
