Update: The Government of Alberta shared on July 7th, 2021 that it has approved the City of Calgary's business case for the Green Line LRT. Learn more here.
The Green Line is a city-shaping project and is having its budget threatened. What is at threat of being lost is the 20,000 jobs it will create, 30,000 tons of greenhouse gas reduction and its crossing the bow river to go north where the need for this line is the greatest. See full benefits here. The time to take action is now.
There is a motion coming to Calgary City Council that will be critical for the future of our Green Line Transit project. We need to ensure future funding so that the full Green Line eventually gets built. Please tell all city councillors that you want them to support dedicating 50% of future provincial and federal capital transit funding to completing the full Green Line. They will be voting on this June 8th so don't delay; they need to have their inboxes flooded with Green Line support now, please.
This is a critical time for the Green Line. Today we are asking you to reach out to your city councillor, but decisions are being made in Edmonton with the provincial government in the coming weeks. In the weeks ahead, the Alliance will be asking you to engage with your Member of Legislative Assembly as the Government of Alberta reviews the Green Line project.
Right now, we're asking you to contact your city councillor. Here is a sample text below for you to edit and send now to [email protected] (which goes to all councillors) or you can send an email to your personal councillor using the list below. Please make sure you include the neighbourhood that you live in since this increases the impact of your letter.
Dear Calgary councillors,
On June 8th, I want you to support dedicating 50% of future provincial and federal capital transit funding to completing the full Green Line transit project. This is a city-shaping project that will bring 20,000 jobs to Calgary in stage 1 alone, in addition to the promise of 30,000 tons of greenhouse gas reduction It is also essential that the Greenline crosses the Bow river and goes north to the communities that are in the greatest need of the Greenline. Now is the time to commit to the future funding needed to ensure this critical investment in the future of our city.
Neighbourhood you live in.
