Sign a petition for a referendum on the proposed Flames Olympic arena

Olympic referendum
The public has the final say.

Citizens of Calgary should MAKE THE DECISION about committing tax dollars to the Flames arena and the Olympics – not just 15 Councillors.

A referendum is the way for Citizens to decide extraordinary matters of this kind.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

This is insidious and wrong!.

  1. The City of Calgary should not have loaned Mr. Nenshi $300,00 in the first place;
  2. The City of Calgary should not be issuing tax receipts that can be used for tax deductions to people who donate money for repayment of the $300, 000; and
  3. The Council loan is a taxable benefit to Mr. Nenshi.

The entire Council, by approving this loan, is guilty by association of disrespect and contempt of citizen’s trust.

A referendum is needed on this matter.  This is an end-of-term Council that has no right to commit taxpayers to massive long-term debt from a NHL hockey arena, Greenline LRT, and an Olympic bid.

The community says NO – the Calgary Planning Commission says YES.  The community loses again.

Communities need to get their voice back.
