Jim Prentice's response to Question 6
Question 6(a): What is your policy on regional planning and cooperation?
Question 6(b): What is your opinion of the Calgary Regional Partnership and the Calgary Metropolitan Plan?
Finally, you asked me about my views on regional planning: I strongly believe that frameworks that enable regional cooperation are essential. I look forward to having the opportunity to engage with the Calgary Regional Partnership as well as the Capital Region Board to ensure these plans move forward. One of the major components that the Province can provide to ensuring the success of these agreements is to ensure all parts of the Alberta Government – not just municipal affairs – seek to align policies that support the evolving roles that our major regional bodies play in attracting and coordinating our economic success.
