It has been a busy few weeks, and I want to thank all of you for sticking with us. We may have wrapped up the longest public hearing in Calgary's history, but the work isn't done yet. In the coming days, we will vote on The City's rezoning strategy, and we will carefully consider the feedback of the hundreds of Calgarians who spoke with us at the hearing and wrote to our office. I want to assure you that I am listening to all of you and take my responsibility to represent Ward 2 residents seriously as we continue to debate this critical legislation.

In addition, my work to repeal the Single Use Bylaw was an enormous success, and I thank everyone who supported this repeal and shared their feedback at this week's public hearing.

As always, my office is open if you have any questions or concerns. You can reach us at I look forward to hearing from you soon.

May Newsletter

This month, we're sharing tips on prepping for Calgary's dry season, and how to keep that water bill low. Also, Neighbour Day is approaching fast, so read on to find out how you can get involved and help make this year's Neighbour Day memorable for the whole family.

Save water, every drop counts!

With many areas in Alberta currently dealing with drought conditions, Calgarians can assist by making every drop of water count. Using your water meter to check for leaks, inside and outside the home, is one way you can do your part to use water wisely.

Checking your home for leaks is easy:

  1. Turn off all taps and water-using appliances – inside and outside your home.
  2. Watch the flow register on the face of the meter. The register could look like a gear or a needle depending on the model of meter you have.
  3. If it keeps turning, you have a leak somewhere in your house.
  4. Check all water devices, such as your toilet, taps, humidifier, hot water heater and water softener.

Community Spotlight


Mark your calendars: The Kincora Community Association will be hosting the Colors Festival – Holi for the second year now. Holi is a Hindu festival which marks the beginning of spring and the end of winter. The tradition is to apply colors (herbal dyes) to those in your community as a fun way to invite spring into each other’s lives. It is customary to come dressed in white on this day and go back in Tie Dye colors as a memento of the event.

Accompanied by music, dancing, and eating good food, this festival defines fun. 

KCA will be hosting this event at their Kincora fields on May 25 this year from 2- 5 pm. This is a free event hosted by the KCA afforded by the generous grants and funds from city and sponsors. Food trucks will be present on site with their offerings for a price.
