#KeepCalgaryStrong is a growing coalition of organizations and Calgarians that support the principle set out by City Council: cuts in the operating budget should do the least harm to Calgary’s most vulnerable and poor. We believe that if budget cuts are necessary, they should not compromise access to jobs, safety, education, health care and the social participation of those most dependent on City services.
We respect the financial challenges confronting City Council. We find the principle of “doing least harm” is most critical in guiding decisions and establishing priorities. Any cuts in supports and services for those who are already vulnerable will only increase stress and trauma. Demands on community resources and support networks will only go up, not down. Losing needed City services for the less fortunate will weaken, not strengthen, our community. Click here to sign the letter.
Show up at City Hall on July 22nd and join us in having our voice heard.
We will have people gathering at 9:15 AM as the vote happens at 9:30. We will have a registration table with buttons and scarves available to show your support.
