    Default 2017 Calgary municipal election

    Am creating this thread so as to not muddy up the 2017 mayoral election thread with stuff that's not necessarily unique to just the mayor's position.

    So to start off, I just read a news article about Farrell being sued for $200,000 plus an order that she be removed from her position. Interesting timing land could be quite damning to her campaign. Link to CBC news article.

    I do hope that lawsuit helps drag druh down, I'm still stuck in her boundary by a block and a half

    I have to say, dirty politics aside, a 10 story building at that corner kinda sucks when everything immediately around it is 2-3 stories high.

    Wonder if they need to adhere to the waterfall type design that DT is adhered to.

    Waterfall is to prevent shadows on the river/parkway, shouldn't be relevant to Kensington.

    So long as those nasty apartment buildings a block up the road are allowed I don't see why a nice new 10 story building in a trendy urban area is a stretch by any means...

    I thought council wanted to promote a high density urban lifestyle?

    That ain't half bad looking. I'm pretty sure 17th Ave S.W will welcome that and will fit better.

    I really dislike Druh but has she really stepped out of line here?

    Not saying these allegations in the article below are true but this whole situation seems messed up from the start.

    This looks like the result of the city not stepping up to pay for Nenshi's legal fees. Because of that poor precedent, anyone who has money to launch a frivolous lawsuit (even the Osteria mobsters) can step up to try to influence council.

    Interesting points made in the last two posts, I wonder what kind of damages Druh could go for if she wins?

    Fake Twitter accounts being used to go after Farrell, Twitter has suspended many of these accounts. Man, life in the public domain gets to be more of a PITA all the time.

    Save-R1.ca - should this be a major election issue? Please note that this web site appears to be 100% the work of Larry Heather so take it for what it is.

    edit: IMO this Larry Heather guy is a nut case, pure and simple.

    Consider he still build web pages like it's 1995.

    Not sure if densification and secondary suite is an election issue this year. But development is slower this time around so I would think it's less of an issue.

    Internet is supposed to help everyone to get informed. But in the end it just make nut jobs sounds better than they were relegated to street corners.

    There is no reward to serve the public. You will never appease more than 60% of the people for anything you do. And there will always be that 10% that will go the extreme to catch you with pants down or dicks out even it's not the issue at hand.

    Her voting against the development out of self interest isn't as big of a deal as the other allegations. If she did offer to sell her backing for a campaign contribution and having her friend hired as the architect, those are the bigger issues. If she did do that, then she should step down.

    The timing of this lawsuit is quite interesting especially when one considers that the noted architect left the employ of the Osteria project back in April of 2015. The Terrigno lawyer denies election timing but it doers seems really odd that it would take the Osteria group almost two years to get their ducks in a row.

    I guess the last laugh would be for Farrell to win this 2017 election and then lose the lawsuit but not have the Osteria group awarded their sought after damages with each group responsible for their own court costs. What would be additional icing on the cake would be the Osteria group being forced to pay all of Druh's costs - so the Osteria group would win but would effectively be punished for the timing of their lawsuit.
