Chris Harper Deserves our Respect

During the time that I've followed municipal politics, I have not seen a more devoted individual than Chris Harper when it comes to his community. If there was one individual who deserves the extra 87 votes, it would be Chris.

Is Calgary Boring After 6 p.m.?

One on One with Ward 11 Candidate Wayne Frisch

"We made huge mistakes as a city when we grew out," laments Frisch. He agreed with me that there is no character in homes and that people don't really want to live in a beige house. Choices that were made in the 1980s and 1990s have led to this, Frisch points out. "We need to actually almost need to mandate some diversity," says Frisch, referring to more mixed use options and maybe, just maybe, some more colour.
