End Gold-Plated City Council Pensions! - Save Calgary

End the Gold-Plated Pensions for City Councillors!

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!

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has analyzed City Council pensions and discovered that for every dollar contributed by a City Councillor, five dollars are contributed by hardworking Calgary taxpayers.  Calgary's City Council is living large off the generosity of taxpayers who have struggled with skyrocketing taxes and crushing user fees.

You can read more about the gold-plated City Council pensions here.

If you believe it's time to put the service back in public service, then please sign our petition below!

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!

    Donald Green – Somehow we have to stop the Calgary City Council from spending our tax money on themselves (except Councillor Jeromy Farkas Ward 11), on useless art, on Olympics bid, on employees who do almost nothing, and other of their “bright” ideas.

    Most councilers and mayor paid way too much to begin with,[and don’t even earn(work)forit]

    The gold plated pensions need to be scaled-1 to 1 “tops”
