    It would be logical for the car community to bring forward a candidate.

    Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will Philander, you too will get old, and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders

    Hard to run as a pro-car candidate and a low-taxes candidate.

    If we aren't spending money converting car lanes into bike lanes it might save a few dollars.

    Would save ten times as much if we didn't have to build connectors for the SW Ring Road.

    At best you're suggesting that we solve traffic by keeping things exactly the same as they are now. Pretty shitty platform to run on, no?

    Meh. This council is more than willing to spend money on road projects. Maybe they're not publicly pro-car (what does that even mean?) but they're certainly not anti-car, even with all the crap we all spew on here about it.

    They just like to spend a lot of time on small, worthless issues.

    Personally, no.

    Being a politician means you get anal probed by everyone. Definitely not worth $200K to me.

    More than anything, I want the fucking mayor to stop costing the city boatloads of money, and educating himself on whatever topic he is going to speak about.

    I want the mayor to quit playing games, and be honest.

    I want the mayor to actually listen to the people of calgary, but that goes for all aldermen.

    But more than anything, I want the populace of calgary to fucking take their head out of their asses, and realize that Nenshi is a fucking idiot. I could stomach people still voting for him, knowing he is an idiot as an informed decision, rather than being the popular vote. I have engaged so many people on FB and twitter over this, and almost every single one, can't cite any reasons why he is a good mayor other than being "approachable" on social media. There were a couple that could articulate a few things, but after researching them, found out they were someone else's brain child, and everyone just gave Nenshi the credit.

    either way, this is just another kick in the nuts to the tax payers of Calgary. We have been fed line after line about how there is absolutely NO SAVINGS ANYWHERE in the city budget, but it is still ok for them to take their raises making Nenshi the highest paid Mayor in Canada, or for billing tax payers for sending Nenshi and a couple council members to BC to hoist the Grey Cup. Those are just 2 examples from recent memory, and not counting the Enmax fiasco, or the Calgary builders association.

    You know, if he is going to fuck tax payers over, he could at least be honest about it.
    Your faux anger should be directed at all the alderman not just the Mayor, he has no more pull or power than any one of them. Hes basically a glorified alderman who gets called Mayor. You guys make it sound like hes a supreme ruler who decides everything..

    Oh noes hes posts on that twitter thing, you're like a bunch of old men yelling at clouds half the time.

    says every Nenshi supporter when they have no rebuttal. It becomes "Nenshi is only one of 12"

    It's also true that he makes $100k more than an alderman.

    Is that why we hate Apple? I always thought it was because THEIR products were over-hyped and over-priced ripoffs of other companies.

    Just like Nenshi is an over-hyped and over-priced ripoff...
