Nenshi: We’re finally going to stop subsidizing sprawl | Calgary Herald

Hmmmmm? This is good...I think? On Monday, your city council made one of the most important decisions of our term, when we decided to adopt a new off-site levy bylaw. This is big. It will fundamentally change how we pay for growth in this city, mostly ending what I’ve been calling a sprawl subsidy. Despite the current economic situation, Calgary… ... Read More »

Exclusive: Key Alberta Operator May Shut-In Cold Heavy Oil Production In Days, Source Says – Calgary energy

Great news for Saskatchewan, very bad news for Alberta. I'm guessing we'll see thousands of layoff's (over 30%) at Husky this year starting in the coming days. My question is,  how does raising corporate taxes, introduce a climate plan, and delaying the Royal Review help Alberta (Calgary)? I'm normally not a doom and gloom kind of guy but when I ...

Alberta Proud

"I have every right as a Canadian, to ask for a plan." Sorry if you don't agree with me but I'm 100% on O'Leary's side.

Kevin O’Leary promises $1M to Canadian oil if Notley steps down | Toronto Star

I like where he is going with this but $1 million is chump change and he fully knows Notley will never step down. The majority of Albertan's want her gone, or do they? Someone voted them in. In less than a year she has ruined Alberta in my personal opinion. The province  was on a down fall when they (NDP) ... Read More »

Calgarians and the mayor must ’embrace’ Flames’ arena project, says NHL commissioner | Calgary Herald

I believe Calgary need's this and I believe Mayor Nenshi should have given Bettman a minute of his time out of respect. I guess when you're busy you're busy. The National Hockey League’s top boss begged Calgary’s elected officials, business and community leaders Monday to back the Flames’ pitch to build a $890-million sports complex in the city’s west downtown. ...

‘They saved lives last night’: Bouncers tackle gunman opening fire in Ten X nightclub 

It's scary to think that people can not go to a nightclub to enjoy themselves anymore without worries of being hurt for no reason. I worked in the Calgary nightclub scene for over 20 years and they were some of the best times of my life and I met some amazing friends. I'm going to worry about my children when ... Read More »

Calgary 3.5% tax hike – Property tax assessments arrive today 

Calgary 3.5% tax hike – Property tax assessments arrive today 

  Let's add insult to injury! Mix it in a bowl of unemployment, the price of groceries, gas, water, electricity, etc. I have been a proud Calgarian/Albertan my whole life. I have never been so motivated to move somewhere else until recently. My passion for Calgary and Alberta is dwindling. I hate saying that but when is enough enough? I ... Read More »
