"Calgarians are clearly looking for change. They are looking for someone who will stand up for them.
Calgarians are experiencing major tax fatigue. They are being hit with increases from both the provincial and federal governments.
And the current Mayor wants the New Democratic government to grant him power to tax Calgarians even more.
I will stand up for Calgary taxpayers.
We don’t need new taxing powers, we need equitable sharing of existing revenue between the three orders of government – municipal, provincial and federal.
City hall should focus on delivering core city services, and to call to account the provincial New Democrats and the federal Liberals to make good on their responsibilities to Calgary."
