Council members balked at giving Calgarians a tax break after hearing in an in-camera meeting about the ballooning cost of the Green Line LRT.
How expensive is the Green Line going to be? And is the province going to kick in for a third of the cost? Meanwhile, the ring road is still missing a vital link – the west leg that bridges the gap from the TransCanada Highway to Sarcee Trail – when will that be built?
Finally, the southwest leg of the ring road is on track to be built by 2021 and and will even come in $700-million under budget, but residents are balking at the construction of a gravel pit near their homes.
What is the province going to do about silica dust and noise? We tackle all these issues in a conversation with Alberta Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Brian Mason, and get reaction from Ward 1 City of Calgary Councilor Ward Sutherland. Full interviews are below.
