Calgarians, we want to hear from you.
Calgary’s downtown has been hollowed out, and has become a shell of what it once was. We have seen multiple companies move their headquarters out of Calgary, office vacancies have skyrocketed to over 30 percent and many small businesses closed their doors.
Jason Kenney's current strategy is not working. The Government’s 4.7 billion dollar corporate hand out did not spur any new investment or invigorate Calgary’s downtown in any way. All it did was create a race to the bottom with more business closures and layoffs.
We need a bold new plan. One that commits to redeveloping Calgary’s Downtown as the economic hub for a new diversified economy. One that supports renewable energy, grows our technology sector, builds a vibrant cultural centre, and creates an environment for Calgary's small businesses to succeed.
We are inviting you to a discussion of Calgary’s Downtown Future with Municipal Affairs Critic Joe Ceci to hear your ideas on how to rebuild a better downtown Calgary.
