Defend The Police!

Defend The Police!

Calgary's brave police officers protect our homes, businesses, and communities from harm and keep us safe. Now, some on City Council are calling for the police to be defunded. They want to reduce the number of police on our streets and spend the money instead on psychologists and social workers. As we've seen in many US cities, taking police out of communities results in more violent crime, more property damage, and significantly less public safety.

We need to stand up for Calgary's police and push back against those who want to paint our police as villains. Let's #DefendThePolice!

I, the undersigned, support Calgary police officers who put their lives on the line to keep us safe. I call on Calgary City Council to defend the police!

    I’m behind Jeremy Farkas! He showed courage in standing up to many of city council’s asinine ideas and often doing it alone. Nenshi has had 3 terms as mayor and many of the councillors have served past their best-before date. It’s time for new blood and new ideas. Perhaps there should be term limits on these positions. As well, I support our police force. Why am I not surprised that the far-left loonies on council want to defund the police. If there are some problems, then fix them from within with more training.
