"From transit to climate, Calgarians speak on proposed four-year budget"

More than 100 Calgarians lined up at city hall on Tuesday to have their say about the city’s upcoming four-year budget.

The public hearing, on the second day of the city’s budget deliberations, featured citizens and community organizations, with transit and climate initiatives a common theme throughout the day.

"Calgary Herald: Citizens call for climate action, better transit at Calgary budget public hearings"

Many speakers, including Steve Bentley of the Calgary Climate Hub, were critical of the budget’s lack of funding for climate initiatives.

“This budget is supposed to be our net-zero launch,” he said. “Between this council and the next, that’s us either missing or meeting our 2030 net zero goals. Does this feel like a net-zero launch budget to you? I’m not feeling it."
