Question: How will you recognize the needs of Calgary and Edmonton, and how do you see this reflected in a new legislative framework for the cities?
Is the Municipal Government Act adequate to meet the needs of the large cities?
Would you prefer city charters or other legislative remedies to address this issue?
Answer: A Wildrose government will re-open the Municipal Government Act in order to recognize municipalities as an order of government and to legislate their responsibilities and role in regional land use planning. We are open to discussing with municipalities any improvements to the MGA they believe are required, including unique status for Edmonton and Calgary.
