"'A cleaner future': Climate strategy on the agenda for council"

The strategy is an attempt to consolidate the city’s many policies that fall under the climate umbrella.


The planned debate drew about 50 people from the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good over the lunch hour. All wore green scarves to symbolize their concern for the environment, and their support for the city’s climate strategy.


“Our goal is to encourage them, both for the climate and also for the economic resources that come from this plan,” said Beth Stovell, speaking for the CACG.

She also said the $87-billion price tag was taken out of context, and doesn’t include the costs of not moving away from fossil fuels. She said finding greener ways to do things will always be positive for the economy.
