Calgary Municipal Election 2013

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.

Purple Whipped

Calgary's mayor Naheed Nenshi was a little less purple prince and a little more bruised scrapper as he headed into what was predictably an easy win at the ballots on Monday. When Calgarians gave Nensh...

'Mayor-juana' Calgary Mayoral Candidate Talks

So marijuana came to be demonized in the same way as cocaine and heroin. Now organized crime took over and production increased and over the years so did the concentration of the products. It was much easier to transport, deliver and conceal concentrated drugs such as heroin and cocaine. Over the years a great deal of energy has been invested in "product development". Marijuana produced today comes in unlimited varieties and strengths. This has been the result of prohibition. No one would have invested the time and energy to cultivate so many strains without a market.

Jon Lord for Calgary Mayor

People ask "What you will do for me if elected Mayor?" I say, "We need to give you the $52 Million back." In my view, this issue is about a breach of trust. We must first REBUILD TRUST in city hall. Integrity matters to me, and it should matter to you. The province gave you money. Council kept it.

Bob Bowles, Calgary Ward 6: Why you Should Vote for me

Ward 6 has a unique list of Candidates. We have not one but two incumbents running for Council. The current one is Mr. Pootmans. His voting record and recent public statements make him an out and out Social Engineer who wants to bulldoze our city and have everyone walk everywhere. He will have better luck getting Americans to give up their guns. He is also advocating for $10.2 Billion in debt to finance his vision of a Social Utopia.

Carter Thomson for Mayor of Calgary

My name is Carter Thomson, and I have lived, worked and been a business owner in Calgary for over 30 years. Like you, I want to play an active role in building my community. I want a better place for my family and be able to operate a proper business.

Larry Heather For Mayor of Calgary

Sandra Hunter for Mayor of Calgary

I am Sandra Hunter and I am campaigning to be the next mayor of Calgary. I have not been to any forums, nor will you have seen me planting signs on lawns or knocking on doors. I believe that those days have come, and gone. I believe that the way, today, to connect with potential voters, is through NEW media.

One-On-One with Ward 11 Candidate Brian Pincott

On partnerships with the other two levels of government, Pincott is looking for stability. He wants the Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) funding to continue at the provincial level so that we can continue funding long-term projects. He also wants to work with the federal government to promote long-term municipal infrastructure development.

Scott Sorokoski for Calgary Ward 13

Change. Such a simple word but it means so much. In starting my career I had a boss that said "you are the new eyes of the company. You see the cracks in the foundation that all of us who have been here a while have lived with and ignored." This is where I have vowed to make an impact in every role I take on.

Judi Vandenbrink for Calgary Ward 1

A great voice for the community is someone who listens to the concerns of all stakeholders, researches solutions and strives to achieve enduring, balanced results. From my observations, an effective Councillor must have a variety of life skills, a history living in the ward, formal education, critical research skills, team building skills, an ability to set priorities and the strength to make hard choices. I have proven that I have these skills.

A Progress Report

In 2010, I ran on a platform that consisted of 12 Better Ideas and I am pleased to say that, with the support of City Council, we have either completed or made significant progress on the vast majority of them.

James Maxim, Calgary Ward 11

We must lead progressively in the conservation and use of the environment (air, water, soil) and that the City must ensure the development of cultural and recreational facilities for a dynamic and vibrant Calgary. Through conservative fiscal policies I will support effective fiscal budget control, the building of modern infrastructure and transportation policies to effectively facilitate the movement of people, goods, and services.

Is Calgary Boring After 6 p.m.?

He believes that the people who say the city is boring are boring. "Our problem is 'what are we going to do tonight,'" states Maxim, referring to the number of events and activities that he has going on in his life every night. Farmer's markets are an example of something that Maxim believes adds vibrancy to Calgary. "If you have it, they will come," repeats Maxim.
