    Sounds like a good time to get a few long term city contracts… nothing like sweet, sweet public sector inefficiency to get rich off of

    I got a text message this morning saying that [email protected] was temporarily giving out benefits via e-transfer and to collect my $540 I needed to click on a link and confirm my banking information. Maybe the city of Calgary is getting a much bigger benefit and they are smartly investing in fighting the climate emergency?

    Someone should tell them that Calgary's climate is driven by Pacific Ocean events and proximity to the mountains. No amount of EVs, solar panels and other bullshit will prevent Chinooks and Hail storms.

    Idiots.

    It also estimates that all registered vehicles in Calgary will be zero-emissions, 60 per cent of all trips will be by walking or wheeling or transit and that less than five per cent of Calgarians will live more than two kilometres from a transit facility all by the year 2050.
    hahaahhahaa. oh man.

    Looks like the battle against the automobile will continue:

    It also estimates that all registered vehicles in Calgary will be zero-emissions, 60 per cent of all trips will be by walking or wheeling or transit and that less than five per cent of Calgarians will live more than two kilometres from a transit facility all by the year 2050.
    So, outlawing ICE vehicles then? No classic cars? Gtfo

    Also that’s cute that they think a place that experiences large amounts of days below 0C will not drive for 60% of trips and voluntarily sit on piss soaked busses… but hell, perhaps the burden placed on individuals to cover these costs will mean only a select few will have enough income to offset cost of living to pay $100/L for gas in 2050…err, wait… no gas in 2050, so also a fight against electric cars?

    Has anyone done a cost benefit analysis of building 12 arenas per year for 37 years versus stopping climate change.

    Who said anything about stopping climate change.

    People realize that’s not even a goal right? I’m going to need to hear some verbal acknowledgement.

    Repeat: “No, spending 87 billion dollars on climate initiatives will not stop climate change”

    I think it's time for a new city slogan.

    I was just going to put in a tender to install high efficiency light bulbs… $500/bulb install should be good, right?
