Alberta Party: Municipalities need a better deal

Posted on May 1, 2015 by Taber Times

Today, Alberta Party leader Greg Clark released his municipal platform.
“Municipalities need to be treated as an equal partner in government in our
province,” said Clark. “For too long we’ve had a top-down approach from the
provincial government”.
“Our plan is about making communities better. We are focused on increasing
the supply of affordable housing, building transit to reduce congestion and
providing stable and predictable funding to build the infrastructure that
municipalities need,”, said Clark.
The Alberta Party has a better way:
– Implement an affordable housing strategy;
– Reduce congestion by investing in transit;
-Fund Family and Community Support Services;
– Provide stable and predictable funding to municipalities;
– Allow regionalization to fix the revenue imbalance; and
Create city charters for Calgary and Edmonton.
