As the song goes “I can’t get no satisfaction”. Actually yes #yyccc could if they weren’t giving us relentless tax increases. #yyc.

Gondek says this speaks to bigger issue of society changing, becoming less homogenous—and how people practice their faith. This is much bigger than land use and built form. #yyccc.

Nenshi asks if we need to be more thoughtful in locating places of worship, intrigued by trend of such places in industrial areas. The days of the church on the corner in the neighbourhood aren’t meeting community needs as much as they used to. #yyccc.

Jumping in partway through the first council meeting of 2019. Here we go… #yyccc.

Is anybody else annoyed that #yyccc is spending taxpayers money on radio & tv advertising what a great job the city is doing on services? This smells like a prelude to big tax increases for all of us. 4% Increased property value x mil rate increase = tax increase.

Bidco should be wrapped up now and sending any left over money back to taxpayers. Despite the Olympic bid being dead they are still operating & producing reports. They are determined to piss away every dollar they got Parasites to the end #yyccc.

“City does not have the legislative authority to freeze wages” #yyccc does have power to limit amount of employees u hire. City hall has gotten so fat under your watch that u can’t even fit back into the old city hall after Reno’s complete. Time for a diet.

@Lloyd_Ash Disappointing that taxpayers pay for a city sponsored propaganda arm at city hall creating these « ads » for city and #yyccc meanwhile the only voices heard are those that parrot the « vision » of city admin & the progressives of council. Consultation in YYC is fatally flawed.

Fmr city planning GM David Watson says this building height shouldn’t be allowed on this site in Winston Hgts as it is out of scale w neighbourhood. No alleys on these streets. He says it would be more appropriate elsewhere. #yyccc.

This discrepancy helps to demonstrate the flaws in city managed citizen engagement processes which are pure PR exercises with little emphasis on listening. #yyccc.

@CBCFletch Basically, the more experienced Calgarians are less impressed with Nenshi performance. Unsurprising. #yyccc.

Scanning the first City Council meeting of 2019 for signs of the Political Tribalism that closed out the last month of 2018. (Group manifestations of the anti-conceptual mentality, led by alpha wolf. Emphasis of surprize oral revelations over written documents) #yyccc #yyc.

A new survey shows Calgarians aren’t particularly pleased with city council’s performance, though scores for individual council members are relatively positive. #yyc #yyccc.

@calgaryherald Yet city sponsored satisfaction surveys always seem to suggest residents are deliriously happy with everything including #yyccc ? Seems we are being misled again. Who’s accurate?.

Darker areas of the map reflect higher satisfaction with the performance of Mayor Nenshi: More: #yyccc #yyc.

Fielding was not the one to write the comment, but said he has apologized to the journalist. #yyccc #yyc.

City mgr Jeff Fielding says a comment made by a City communications person about a journalist in a document (revealed in a recent FOIP) was inappropriate and disrespectful. Fielding says he has apologized to the journalist. #yyccc.

First #yyccc meeting of 2019 begins with Coun. Farkas asking about an access to information request that revealed city communications staff referred to a column written by Rick Bell as drivel — The comment was inappropriate and disrespectful, says city manager Jeff Fielding.

@calgaryherald Where is the Independent Forensic Accounting of BidCo? Calgarians need to see exactly where the dollars went. #yyccc #yyc.

An absolutely crucial issue, and yes, shifting some of the burden to residential by #yyccc is a no brainer and needs to be done. Way out of balance in #yyc & it has some of the lowest residential taxes in Canada..
