Providing a Basic Income to Canadians

Basic Income (BI), is a program where a regular, predictable income is unconditionally available to recipients who need it. BI provides an amount of money capable of supporting a stable, healthy life, and enables all who receive it to be full participants in the economy.  There are many aspects to consider in adopting a Basic Income program including costs, implentation challenges, marketplace impact and social benefits.    On June 22, 2020 we sent this letter calling for the implementation of a Basic Income program to Prime Minister Trudeau, Deputy Prime Minister Freeland and Minister of Finance Minister Morneau. 

Truth and Reconciliation

Many steps with one goal Our Truth & Reconcilation Research Action Team encompasses both Indigenous Elders and Non-Indigenous Leaders that continually examine steps we can take as a society to address the consequences of our colonial past.  On May 25th, Delegates at our Assembly voted to support a call for an Aboriginal Liason Office in every district of the Calgary Police Services.     

The Environment & The Green Line

As plans are made to re-start our economy the Enviroment team invites us to image a brighter climate future.  The Enviroment team, led by our member organization, the Climate Hub, is asking that the City of Calgary build for not just stimulus but climate through our Green Stimulus plan.

We Build Leaders

“I went to the training and discovered practical ways that I can build relationships and take action to bring about change in our city.”

Province to examine Green Line

The Green Line received City of Calgary approval this past week.  Now, a letter received from Transportation Ric McIver indicating the Green Line project will be reviewed by the province is pause for concern.  The Calgary Alliance for the Common Good has responded with a committment to write the province and involve our membership.

From 660 News:  

"That’s prompted the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good to write to all Calgary MLAs including McIver and Premier Jason Kenney ensuring they keep their end of the bargain."

The full article with letter, the City of Calgary's response and our committment to keep the Green Line alive can be found here.

Green Line Victory

We did it! On Tuesday evening, Calgary City Council approved the Green Line! This approval is an incredible victory for both ordinary Calgarians and for the Calgary Alliance! Thank you to our members, who successfully fought for the Green Line by writing letters, making phone calls, tweeting, speaking at Council and coming to the rally. You made a difference! Through this campaign, you fought for a city that looks after ALL its citizens, one that believes in helping our vulnerable get to their place of work, families take their children to school and recreational facilities, and seniors remain mobile, all while reducing Green House Gas Emissions, creating jobs and diversifying our economy! We are so grateful for each and every effort in support of this campaign and particularly want to thank Christine Laing & Aïda Nciri and the Calgary Climate Hub for their work and partnership on this project!
