Questions: Do you believe that the current Municipal Government Act meets the needs of The City of Calgary, and if so, why? If not, do you support a new legislative framework (e.g. City Charters) that recognizes the unique position of Alberta’s biggest cities?
A: I support a review of all legislation on a timely basis to ensure it is meeting the needs of its citizenry. I also believe that it is time to recognize that municipalities are a legitimate mature form of government that do not need to be monitored by the provincial government. Municipal leaders answer to their voters.
