This article echos the themes of bully tactics by Calgary’s Mayor in the recent Rocky View Weekly paper. Editor’s comment – staff attended
Rocky View 2020’s position is that Rocky View is it’s own jurisdiction and has worked collaboratively with the City of Calgary in decades past. The Rocky View landowners pay taxes to their municipal district and are represented by their own council that makes the planning decisions for their land surrounding Calgary.
Calgary has no authority to control other jurisdictions even though they keep trying to push the province to force the Counties into the Calgary Metropolitan Plan which would give Calgary’s Mayor and the CRP gang what they want. Power over the entire region.
We hope and trust our new Provincial government will support leaving the decision making as close to the people affected as possible and not support the bully tactics of the Mayor of Calgary and the multi-million dollar taxpayer funded Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP).
