I've spent much of this week celebrating Aboriginal Awareness Week and the many people who work so hard at helping us travel this important path of reconciliation. This is a great time in Calgary when we can learn more about our history while committing to working better together. Yesterday, (on the newly-named National Indigenous Peoples Day), we honoured two women (Elaine Cairns and Latasha...

Good evening, folks!

This Facebook page is one of the great places where I can hear from Calgarians about what’s important to them... and share some of the big things that are happening at The City of Calgary. Of course, one of the things happening in Calgary this year is our municipal election. We’ve confirmed with our new Ethics Advisor for Council that it is appropriate to use this space...

Four years ago, we faced the greatest challenge in our community’s history. Even on a gorgeous day like today, I wake up every morning and look at the river flow reports (everything is fine, and my colleagues at the Calgary Fire Department have lifted the boating advisory on the Bow). After what we all went through with the 2013 floods, it’s hard not to feel nervous.

But on this anniversary,...

My heart is so full! Neighbour Day 2017 was a huge success with thousands of Calgarians celebrating in parks, front yards, parking lots, and many public spaces. It is easily my favourite day of the year, and I was thrilled to spend it with so many of you in every corner of this great city. Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered to make these events happen so that every one of our fellow...

Tomorrow (June 17) is Neighbour Day! I hope you have an awesome day with friends, family, and neighbours celebrating what makes this city great. There are hundreds of events happening tomorrow throughout Calgary, so you should have no problem finding something to do. But don't let that stop you from hosting your own Neighbour Day event: fire up your barbecue on the front lawn, bring out some...

I'm really proud of this project from the Mayor's Youth Council. By helping our youth to explore their potential and all the many different careers they could have, we're making an investment in a more diverse future economy.

If you're in high school and thinking about future careers, this will be a perfect event for you.

Thanks to the amazing young people in the Mayor's Youth Council and...

Earlier today, we announced a very important step in the fight against our current opioid addiction crisis: safe consumption services located at the Sheldon Chumir Health Centre in downtown Calgary. I was joined by community members, doctors, police, advocates, and politicians (including area Councillor Evan Woolley) to announce this plan and related community engagement.

The data are very...

As I say in the article, I'm very pleased that our credit rating has been reaffirmed as AA (high). One rating agency said this rating is the result of fiscal prudence and solid financial reserves. It's a good indicator of the smart management decisions we've been making at The City of Calgary for the past few years, especially in the face of the economic downturn. [ Link ]

It's Day 2 of the 28th Annual Mayor's Environmental Expo and I had a great time touring the booths of this year's Eco-Leaders schools (that's 32 schools across the city to taking their environmental learning beyond the classroom in a six-month project to develop creative solutions to local environmental challenges).

The Expo is an excellent opportunity for nearly 4000 Calgary students to...

Hi folks! I was in Ottawa last week with mayors from across Canada attending meetings and advocating for important federal investments in infrastructure, affordable housing, and a unified response to the opioid crisis. Of course, being the mayor of Calgary, it's hard not to talk about pipelines and what they mean for the prosperity of all Canadians. Here's my interview with Vassy Kapelos on...

It's coyote denning season and with that comes a potential for dangerous interactions between people, pets, and coyotes in city parks. In particular, my colleagues in Parks have closed a pathway in Panorama Hills to help keep folks safe.

Please call 311 if you have concerns regarding coyotes; include the address of the concern or sighting. And in an emergency situation where there is...

This 16-household building has one, two, and three-bedroom suites including homes that are barrier free and can accommodate the visually impaired.

It was an honour to be the first to say "welcome home" to our fellow citizens who will be the...

Today was a very special day for me both professionally and personally. We officially began construction of the 17th Avenue SE (International Avenue) BRT. (I say "officially" because anyone who takes that route knows construction started at least a month ago.)

Today we learned about a recommendation on the 2026 opening day scenario for Calgary's newest LRT line: The Green Line. At 20km and with 14 stations (from Crescent Heights to Shepard) while going under downtown, the core build of the Green Line will be a huge project that will serve over 60,000 citizens a day from the first day it opens. It will also be the basis for future expansions further...

Big, big news today for Calgary Transit customers along the Blue Line (from Saddletowne to 69th Street): we're now running 4-car trains along the line! That adds 33% more capacity, which makes taking the CTrain much more comfortable during rush hour. Thanks to all of my colleagues who have been working for many years to get the Blue Line and all its stations ready for this big day. It's great...

I had another great lunch hour reprising my role as honourary parade marshal of the Parade of Wonders--the official launch of the Calgary Expo. I love seeing so many families out in costume and enjoying themselves downtown. And it was a pleasure to meet homegrown comic book hero Todd McFarlane and his family. To the 100,000+ people attending the Expo this weekend: have a safe and wonderful time!
