Join us as we work towards…
A City Hall for All
As we work to meet the challenges before us, we need to strive towards a courageous vision of Calgary that provides equal opportunities for all to contribute to our city. This vision must include racial, gender, and LGTBQ2S+ equality, a meaningful strategy to address homelessness and poverty, support for our elders, and an unflinching commitment to doing all we can to fight the ongoing opioid crisis.
By embracing values of fairness, civility, compassion, and inclusivity we can ensure that all Calgarians are able to play an important role in our present and future success.
A World Class Inner-City
Calgary’s economic success depends on a strong and vibrant inner-city. We must invest now in a revitalized downtown and inner-city infrastructure that will drive our present and future prosperity.
Sustainable development, affordable housing, a modern transportation system, and support for arts and culture will attract and retain the industry, talent, and investment that will create a brighter future for all Calgarians.
Our Economic Renewal
The economic downturn and the global pandemic are a one-two punch that has significantly impacted city revenue, but the surest way to overcome our revenue challenge is to grow, not retract. Cutting taxes will only deepen the hole. Cutting services disproportionately affects those who can least afford it, and sends a signal to industry, talent, and investors that Calgary is not a viable place to build a future.
We need creative solutions, not regressive policies. We need a better deal with the Province, we need a more equitable tax collection structure, and we need to nurture the economic engine of small business. Most importantly, we need to invest in a city-building strategy that encourages industry and talent to invest in Calgary and shows the world what we all know – Calgary is, and will continue to be, a modern, forward-thinking, affordable city consistently ranked among the most liveable in all the world.
