City Hall

It’s been three and a half years since the Calgary floods, and with the support of City Council a new River Access Strategy will be implemented over the next few years to improve safety and accessibility for Calgarians.

More than 200 individuals gathered outside Calgary City Hall as activists begin to speak at the top of the stairs leading into the building.

With more than 80 per cent of Calgary’s city council being male, many argue women’s issues are not being represented properly in municipal politics. However, Ask Her is fighting to create a gender balanced local government.

The Greenline LRT will be the newest, and most expensive transit project to hit the City of Calgary. Estimated at $5-billion, this light-rail train will serve 41 million passengers every year.

Senior Project Manager Jonathan Lea said the Calgary Green Line will become an “urban spine” connecting north and south communities that are currently neglected by the transit system.
