Ward 14 Official Website
First brought to Council:
March 19, 2012

Calgary's rapid and exponential growth has transformed the city over the years. The same is happening in Edmonton. Calgary's influence and needs are changing.

The Province of Alberta realizes this and recent political discussion has revealed that the Province may be open to a new and different relationship structure with Alberta's major cities. New tools, authorities and innovations in financing for funding and managing our cities could be on the table in the foreseeable future.

But little formal discussion and high-level research has been done on this topic. It is vital that citizens, taxpayer groups and other stakeholders be thoroughly consulted in preparation for potential change. Accountability, fairness, and equity will surely be items of interest for potential change in the structure of municipal government. Public consultation would be invaluable.

Alderman Peter Demong brought a motion to Council proposing this kind of public consultation.
