During my time on Council I have had a chance to work on a lot of issues that resonate with Calgarians. I can’t think of an issue that has resulted in more traffic to my office than the Olympic debate. And I think that’s a healthy thing. Council has voted to move ahead with a plebiscite on November 13th, which you can find more details about here. In my view, the most important part of the plebiscite process will be ensuring that Calgarians get all of the information they need to make a well informed decision. In the interests of the discussion, I thought it was important to host an event in Ward 12 to hear from both critics and proponents of the Olympic Bid.
I have invited speakers from both Yes Calgary and No Calgary Olympics to present at the Speaker Series. Both camps will be given an opportunity to share what they are about and their position. From there I will facilitate a Q&A session. And this is where I am looking to Ward 12 residents for help. My office wants to know what questions matter most to you. We will short list the best questions or the most common themes for the event. Please send your suggestions to my office at Ward12@Calgary.ca.
Details for the event are as follows:
When: Thursday, October 25 from 7:00pm-8:30pm
Where: Mahogany Beach House, 29 Masters Park SE
