Beginning on November 21, Calgary City Council will set the budget for the next four years and determine how over $4-billion per year in public funds will be spent. Unfortunately, some Councillors may press to shift public dollars away from existing communities to fund costly infrastructure and services for new sprawl developments. We can’t let that happen.
Calgary City Council must make good on their Climate Emergency declaration and take immediate action on banning this obnoxious source of excessive noise and air pollution that is completely avoidable and within our control as a city.
Petition: City Council must do its due diligence on any arena spending and engage Calgarians on the best use of $100s of millions in public funds
Now that the Flames owners have decided to terminate their sweetheart deal with the City, City Council must do its due diligence on the best use of public dollars for the revitalization of Victoria Park and the new Culture and Entertainment District.
Petition: The Alberta Government must implement effective public health measures to protect Albertans against the Omicron variant
While governments around the world and across Canada are stepping up vaccine booster programs for all adults and tighter public health measures, Jason Kenney and the UCP are loosening restrictions for anti-vaxxers to gather indoors over the holidays.
Chu must resign before the new Council is sworn in on October 25 so that Ward 4 voters can vote in a by-election with full knowledge of Chu’s record.
Pledge: Vote for City Council candidates that support responsible public health measures against COVID-19
As a result of the failure of Alberta’s Government, Alberta has the second-lowest rate of full COVID vaccination among Canadian provinces. Meanwhile, the preventable fourth wave of the pandemic is surging through the province filling hospitals, ICUs, with COVID patients forcing the cancellation of surgeries and cancer treatments across the province. Help us elect a mayor and city council that support responsible public health measures against COVID-19.
Petition: The Alberta Government must bring back basic public health safety measures to protect against a 4th COVID wave in Alberta
The Alberta Government is putting thousands of lives at risk with plans to dismantle the most basic protections and defences against COVID-19 in Alberta this August including the requirement for individuals who test positive for COVID to isolate, routine contact tracing and mass testing facilities.
Petition: City Council must cancel the $290-million subsidy to the over-budget arena and engage Calgarians
The $290-million new arena is officially over budget before even breaking ground on construction. Now the billionaire Flames owners are asking for $70-million and more free land from the city. City Council must give Calgarians a say about whether to spend hundreds of millions of our tax dollars on subsidizing the Flames owners’ over-budget arena.
Petition: City Council must support the Guidebook for Great Communities, better planning and reinvestment in established neighbourhoods
Established communities continue to hollow out while the City sends taxpayer funds to build world class infrastructure and amenities in new communities. The Guidebook for Great Communities supports the necessary community planning work needed to build more complete neighbourhoods and stop the flow of investment out of established communities.
The Alberta Government is easing COVID-19 restrictions amidst the sharp rise of new, more contagious variants of the virus in Alberta without a secure or reliable contact tracing app.
City Council can choose to make our neighbourhood streets safer by going to 40km/h or they can accept more deaths, injuries, and costs to society while we delay a decision.
The Green Line is under attack again by the same wealthy special interest group. Now the Alberta Government is delaying the promised provincial funding, costing Calgary delays, 20,000 jobs and $10’s of millions in extra costs.
Calgary taxpayers cannot afford to be on the hook for another $23 million annual subsidy, the equivalent of a 1.5% tax increase, to build 11 more new communities when we already have spiralling costs on a record 41 new communities in development and a 'dangerously' saturated housing market.
The Defund2Fund Coaltion is seeking a reduction to the CPS budget, to be reallocated throughout our communities, to rebuild trust, and to rectify systemic barriers in the financial capacity of Black, Indigenous, other racialized communities and 2SLGBTQ+ people.
We've heard Councillor Magliocca apologize for misuse of taxpayers money before. Council sanctions are not enough. Ethics re-training and refreshers are not enough. Councillor Magliocca must resign.
An anti-transit special interest group is trying to kill the Green Line. It's time for those of us who support, use, and need transit and the Green Line to stand together and make our voices heard.
Show your support for the City of Calgary making more space for people walking, running, and cycling by signing this petition.
Petition: To flatten the curve, the province must provide Albertans experiencing homelessness with hotel rooms to self isolate
