When you have parallel runways you need to find a way to distinguish them from one another.

Currently YYC has only one runway 16/34 (the numbers are the magnetic headings rounded off). So when we have two 16/34 runways there will be a 16R (right) and 16L (left) and same for the 34 sides.

If you were to have 3 runways in parallel then the centre runway would get the 'C' designator for centre.
