1) For over five years I have attended most council meetings and have been refused access to several of the meetings. In the meetings I was privileged to attend, I was not allowed to voice my opinion. Approximately 50 per cent of City Council meetings are closed, while the rest are open to spectators only. What does the Land Development Committee, Utility Committee, Enmax, Audit Committee, etc. have to hide? All of their meetings are behind closed doors.

1) I feel I'm the most attractive candidate the the student community. I would focus on making Calgary a more cosmopolitan city with a greater focus on the arts.

1) I know what it's like to be a student, I have my Electrical Masters Certificate. I think that students' problems are not being heard.

2) I think that for students, there should be subsidized transit fares. I am also in support of extending the C-Train system as well as encouraging running the c-train later, till say, 4 or 5 a.m. on all days except holidays.

Right now there is too much construction too fast. The city needs to ask the citizens what is good for them and then respond to it.

1) My campaign slogan is "Calgary needs a social agenda, not just a business one." More attention to affordable housing is a student concern that I would address.

2) I would like to see more public transit more often, and longer. Extend LRT lines and increase LRT cars.

Complete existing and new roads and necessary interchanges. Tie in construction of new roads, and lane widening of old roads, to the mandate of developing specified portions of communities as high density housing.

1) Two key ingredients, which are nowhere to be found in the decision making process in the Mayor's Office today: access and participation.

2) While the city continues to grow, investment levels must not only keep up with development, but also make up for the last ten years of neglect, nine of which Bronconnier is directly responsible for.

1) By investing in our citizens, over time, we will get a happier, healthier, more productive society. Government spending is out of control at all levels. The focus should shift back to the people.

2) Public transit has an important role in decreasing traffic volume in our city. It needs to be a more efficient way to get to where you're going. You can't just keep throwing money at a system that doesn't work.

  Transit WoesPDF files may take a moment to load

Anyone who drives Calgary's roads in the morning is packed onto the train like a sardine for a twice daily commute, or is left stranded when their bus stops running at 10 p.m. knows transit is a top issue with Calgarians.

Accordingly, it's the number one issue for incumbent mayor Dave Bronconnier.

  The slaughterhousePDF files may take a moment to load

The citizens of N.E. Calgary have a beef with Ranchers Beef, who were trying to build a Slaughterhouse uncomfortably close to residential areas. The packing plant was originally going to be built just inside the city limits but has now been relocated to the municipal district of Rocky View. The new site is roughly 300m from the original address of 144th Avenue and 68th Street N.E. Residents are still wary about the possible negative effects the facility might have on their area.
