Mask Mandate Repealed - Partially

 

 

People sometimes ask us whether petitions work and whether politicians ever listen to them.

Well, I'm very pleased to report to you today that, despite some procedural shenanigans, it's now official and Council have voted 10-4 to remove Calgary's mask mandate in private locations as we called for in our petition last week.

Of course, this being Calgary Council, they couldn't help themselves from clinging on to just a bit of power for just a bit longer, so they also voted 3-11 against removing the mask mandate in City-owned buildings and facilities.

Time To End Calgary's Subsidy War

 

"If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."

Perhaps no government encapsulates this adage better than the City of Calgary, and no project is a better example than Platform Calgary.

Platform Calgary is a new above-ground parkade in downtown Calgary that is so extravagantly expensive it could only be built by government.
