City Transportation Planning Creates Elbow Drive Bottleneck on Purpose?
Elbow Drive and Mayfair
Road SW Intersection has just been altered! (Sept. 2013)
Elbow Drive is a major critical access to the Downtown
Core. This deliberately created bottleneck is made to create frustration
is interviewed on Local Calgary CTV news
Candidate for the Mayor of Calgary speaks out.
All of this in Canada, the second
largest land mass Country in the World, with ample room for the expansion
of it's cities. This is not sea locked Holland with precious land space
reclaimed from the sea by dikes. Most Calgarians choose the suburbs, because
life is healthier for families, more private, more secure and with far
greater recreational space in the suburbs. Sardine can crowding, stacking
floor upon floor, is not the preferred choice of most Calgarians.
That is a fine and even desirable option for a strong minority of people whose family lives , business and volunteer commitments do not necessitate them having the utmost mobility. But Calgarians, being the active and dynamic citizens they are, cannot and should not be forced out of their cars without a knock down fight. Because, in spite of the obtuseness of utopian bureaucrats and college professors, Calgarians realize utmost mobility is a key to making great things happen. A great deal of the uniqueness of what Calgary is, comes out of the fact that it has always been, like the running rivers of the Bows beside them, a City of the Running Car.
All of these restrictive measures are being forced on Calgarians as a result of the seismic waves of change, emanating out of the' Reducing Green House Gases Emissions In Calgary.' This thirty-five page report, was spewed forth by the notoriously left-wing, anti fossil fuels, anti-'tarsands' Pembina Institute. And at the cost of $340,000 of hard earned taxpayers money. note: GHG aka - also known as " Giant Humongous Government "
People whose lives are often devoid
of any other living faith, become very attached to these world wide environmental
crusades. To save the world from a manufactured crisis, that has not produced
any upward temperature change in the last sixteen years. And to boot,
the benificent thrill of playing the Messiah for their poor misguided
'climate change denying' neighbors.
And now we find, through the freedom
of information sleuthing work of Ezra Levant, that the United Kingdom
government through their Ottawa embassy, also paid Pembina healthy cash
to alter, the oil producing business climate of Calgary. To a foreign
oil producers benefit. Talk about climate change! It really has always
been about the socialist redistribution of wealth from taxpayer to regulating
Like an Environmental Advocacy constructed tailings pond, every taxpayer duck who puts their feet in the gummy recommendations of this report, will find the end results fatal to Calgary's economic vitality. That is why it is time to sound the warning guns, so we can fly far from it. This report actually encourages in new building developments, such insanity's as not including minimum required parking spaces, paid or free. O well, Grandma with the Walker visiting the grandkids, in the sardine can stack, has to 'mode shift' to CTraining it too! Tough apples Granny?
Well, that's all for now folks! The
above Elbow Drive Planned Bottleneck. Is this just a taste of what's coming
What If This.....
