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.
