I had the following column published in the Calgary Herald. We continue to raise this very important issue into the spotlight. If you have contacts with the UCP, please reiterate the importance of dealing with this central planning, investment limiting, job killing, taxpayer funded extra layer of bureaucracy. Regional planning and proper consideration to transportation issues and storm water and wastewater makes good sense. Setting up “state control” of a region thereby limiting choice and competition which always benefit the consumer makes no sense.
