I have just seen the most amazing and astonishing thing from the city of Calgary. Go to http://fluidsurveys.com/s/affordable-housing-process/
The City is plotting to buy and/or develop land using a “hide it from the developers” strategy. Are they trying to scam land sellers into taking a low price by excluding developers from the bidding process? Why does the city want to compete with private business? The city can crush them easily using near infinite tax capital. What business does the City have in prattling about ‘affordable housing’? The business of the city of Calgary is to mind roads, sewers, water pipes and not much else, and certainly to to play fairy godmother.
This is truly appalling. The Project Manager is one Justin Rebello, Office of Land Servicing & Housing, firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel: 403.268.5413.
Phone him, email him, denounce him and his vile activities.
