When I fly an ifr flight or a vfr flight and I start communicating with the ATC, after a while they tell me to land at a certain runway (In this case at Calgary Intl- Runway 34) I dont want to land at this runway

My Airplane =
Runway number= 34 or 16
----- = the actual runway.
-->-->-->-->= my direction of travel

-->-->-->-->-->--> 16---------34
The ATC tells me to land at runway 34. It would be a lot easier for me to land at runway 16 wouldn't it? Sometime in an IFR flight the ATC menu says: Select different approach. So I tried that and selecte ILS 16. I made the request to the ATC and they told me to make the approach to runway 16 and then circle to land at runway 34.

No you cant if you are using real weather updates.

-->-->-->-->16-----------34 if the wind is blowing closer to the way 16 is then you will land on 34 because you need to land in the closer direction into the wind.
