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!
The Calgary Alliance for the Common Good will hold its Annual General Meeting June 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Zoom. All members are welcome to attend, but we ask that each member organization send at least one delegate. We look forward to having this time of celebrating our accomplishments over the past year, reviewing our finances, electing our board and preparing for the year to come.
The Green Line is at a critical juncture. You can take action to make sure that it gets built.
The Green Line barely passed the committee vote on June 1. Now it goes to Council on June 15, where they will decide if it goes ahead, or dies from indecision. Currently, there are 6 councilors who are committed to supporting the Green Line, we need to take action to ensure there are at least 8 councilors who vote in support of this project.
