Being a City Councillor should be about serving the public, not about being handed a gold-plated pension paid for by taxpayers.
It's time to end the culture of perks and entitlement that is festering in City Hall!

Calgary's City Council is living large off the generosity of taxpayers who have struggled with skyrocketing taxes and crushing user fees.

I, the undersigned, am tired of having my tax dollars go towards gold-plated City Council pensions when families and small businesses are struggling to make ends meet. I support ending the high-paying City Council pensions paid for by taxpayers!
