Flatline the Green Line!

Flatline the Green Line!

Calgary's Green Line LRT project is a train wreck.

The line will cost $5 billion for Phase 1 alone, and there's no clear plan for how the line will be built given the complex requirements of running it through the downtown core and the over the Bow River.

After more than ten years of planning, re-planning, re-designing, and re-inventing, not a single piece of track has been laid, and then project remains still on the drawing board.

It's time to pursue new transit options that won't bankrupt our city.

It's time to flatline the Green Line.

I, the undersigned, do not support the risky Green Line LRT project. I demand that City Council flatline the Green Line.

    Quit spending and learn how to manage a budget. Quit whining about the Provincial and Federal Governments lack of monetary input and find your own revenue – in other words – get to work!

    Forget the Green Line, we will be decades before we pull out of the mess we are presently in. If the Airport conection is that important extend the line already runing in the NE.

    Why is City Council pushing this through at a time we can least afford it? The Canadian Tax Payer Federation state Phase 1 alone will cost each Calgary household $4700. With the vacancy rates happening in the downtown core there are less jobs and services available – therefore less need for this system?

    I live in the NW and can take a bus directly to the downtown core in 20 minutes. If the Green Line is built will I then have to wait for a bus to go to the 16th ave train and then wait for a train to take me downtown, then wait for another train to take me south? Then I will stop using transit and drive because I don’t have the time to waste waiting for 3 different lines.

    We voted NO to the Olympic Games because they were too costly. I vote NO to the Green Line.

    Now is NOT the time. Rapid transit bus routes would sufficiently serve the public quickly without the exorbitant spending.

    It is to bad that my children and grandchildren have to pay for you and your counselors stupidity. How do you expect my children and grandchildren to pay for this bone headed plan when you jackasses don’t even know what your doing to this fare city. I’ts just another way of running it further into the laughing stock of North America, if not the whole world.

    I would like to see a referendum on this project. If the city councillors are confident that the citizens of Calgary are behind them, they should not fear a democratic referendum for that confirmation.
