Just about to launch the 28th Annual Mayor's Christmas Food Drive. Last year, we raised more than $780,000 in money and food for the Calgary Food Bank so they could help our fellow citizens in need. More than ever, our friends and neighbours need us, so please do give what you can to the food bank (or whatever charity you choose) this year.

Thanks to all our partners who make this city-wide...

On December 1st and 3rd, community members are encouraged to drop into the Rundle Community Hall to have their say and help create a long-term vision for the area. If you can't go in person,...

Today is the start of Budget Week at your City Council. Unlike other orders of government, Council reviews the proposed budget line-by-line and debates it on live tv/online over the course of the next few days. I'm proposing a tax freeze and help for those particularly hard hit the economic downturn (including small business), and I hope Council supports it.

This year, we're making mid-cycle...

This morning I stood in line with other Calgarians to get my annual flu shot. It took just a few minutes and is absolutely worth the time (plus I got to take my picture with ridiculously cute group!).

Get yours, stay healthy, and help others (especially those with compromised immune systems) not get sick!

Local clinic schedules are already available at or by calling Health Link (at...

1 in 10 Calgarians live in poverty. That is a community the size of Red Deer! Enough For All is a community-led initiative to reduce poverty in Calgary by 50% by 2023.

This morning, I was proud to stand with dozens of Calgarians who are making a commitment to fight poverty. But if we're really going to end poverty in Calgary, we all have to play a part....

Nenshi: A city charter is going to make Calgary a better community

I was very sad to hear of the passing of Normie Kwong today. He was truly one of the greatest Calgarians, whether in sport, in business, or in public service. He was an inspiration to all of us--helping everyone understand that this is a place where anyone can be and do anything. My thoughts and prayers are with the Kwong family today. He will be missed.

This little project is great! For a few years now, the Mayors' Civic Engagement Committee, folks on my team, and my colleagues in City Clerks have been hosting public "City Hall 101" sessions to help citizens get a better sense of how they can connect with their City. One of their latest projects was a comic strip to illustrate what it's like to present at a committee meeting. You can read the...

Not bad at all! Calgary is still one of the top five most liveable cities in the world. This is a reminder that, despite our current economic challenges, Calgary remains one of the best cities on the planet--a great city in which to make a living and a life. And that’s something we need to keep working on every day.

And while I'm online... I've been so busy lately that I haven't shared some interesting international press about Calgary.

Here's a piece from our very own Chris Turner in The Guardian (although I don't really like the headline): [ Theguardian.com Link ]

My colleagues at The City of Calgary are watching water levels on the Elbow River very closely. ([ Calgary.ca Link ]

There is a risk of some limited overland flooding. We are reducing water levels from the reservoir in a very controlled way to prepare for higher expected flows in the Elbow. That means the water on the Elbow is...
