Fire City Council!

Fire City Council!

Calgary's City Council has completely failed to address Calgary's ongoing business crisis.

Thousands of businesses have been forced to layoff staff or close up shop because of City Council's relentless tax hikes.

Instead of cutting spending and holding the line on taxes, City Council - once again - put the burden of their bad decisions onto the backs of Calgary's businesses.

And now, with the latest massive hike to their taxes, many businesses have said they simply can't afford to keep going.

City Council's endless spending and tax hikes represent a failure of leadership. They need to be held accountable for this record of failure.

The Government of Alberta has the ability to fire a City Council if they fail to perform their duties in a responsible and effective manner.

A quick look around the boarded up stores, empty office towers, and staggeringly high property tax bills that have landed in the mailboxes of Calgary homeowners and businesses makes it clear that this City Council hasn't lived up to the standards expected of them by Calgarians.

Enough is enough.

It's time that the Alberta government sent this City Council packing, and a new Council chosen that will show leadership in the face of Calgary's ongoing financial crisis.

I, the undersigned, believe that Calgary's City Council has lost the moral authority to govern. I believe that they haven't taken any real action to address Calgary's economic crisis, and that as a direct result of their lack of leadership, they've forced thousands of Calgary business to close their doors permanently. Enough is enough. I demand that the Government of Alberta fire Calgary's City Council.

    Isn’t it time to mobilize to get a petition signed by a significant number of citizens 100, 000 and take it to the provincial government to get this council disolved as quickly as possible before they have completely ruined the city?

    Remove them and let city admin run things until we can elect a replacement council that reflect the views, needs and reality of calgarians living in a recession, still being laid off. This city is BROKE, act accordingly. Stop all non-essential / discretionary capital projects, ie. last $2b of projects as well as the greenline, figure out how to simply maintain the infrastructure we have today and how to get the most outcome from the least cost, stop building white elephants like the airport tunnel that cost us more to maintain than build and deliver almost nothing.

    This crisis has to be addressed immediately. I completely agree above comments. Calgary City Council has failed. We need a change.
