Wildrose response to Question 04


Question: What additional financial support will you provide to address the increased costs and responsibilities associated with policing in Calgary?

Answer: Wildrose has committed to a comprehensive review of how policing is funded, but until that is complete current policing grants will remain in place.  In particular, we’re interested in ensuring that cities with shadow populations and those who provide their own policing are fairly funded.  Additionally, the flexibility afforded by the 10-10 plan would enable cities to use additional provincial funds beyond MPAG (or its replacement) for policing if they felt they had additional requirements.
