Dear Premier Kenney, Minister McIver, and my Calgary MLA,
We call on the UCP to support the approved Green Line Stage 1 alignment from 16 Avenue North to Shepard in the Southeast. The UCP came to power promising jobs – and this is a clear opportunity to deliver.
The business case is on the Premier’s desk and the technical people have confidence in the project – we now need you to act and approve the business case.
Calgary desperately needs the 20,000 jobs that this project will create, plus the 30,000t of GHG emission reduction that this line will bring and the vital and promised transportation link to north central Calgary. We need the UCP to step up for Calgarians. Fourteen out of fifteen on Calgary City Council approved this Green Line in June 2020. Let’s get the Segment 1 work out for tender now , so that we have a chance of getting these transit construction jobs going in 2022. This is a chance for the UCP to do great things for our city; Calgary families need those jobs NOW.
Your Name, Postal Code
