A committee has raised $207,000 to help Naheed Nenshi pay his legal bill from a settled defamation lawsuit.
- The City of Calgary should not have loaned Mr. Nenshi $300,00 in the first place;
- 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
- 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.
