Calgary needs its basement suites

The city of Calgary is shutting down basement suites dispite the housing shortage and the high cost of rent. My sister was just told her tennants in the basement of her duplex (who are expecting a baby) have 90 days to be out unless all cooking equipment is removed, not even a toaster. The basement suite is also a huge part of my sister being able to afford her mortage and own a house in Calgary. I myself have twice had the pleasure of looking for a place to rent this year and it\'s out of control. This petition is for people who are sick and tired of a municipal government that is totally out of touch with the realities of being a low or even middle income Calgarian. I\'ve added a link to the page where you can go to email your alderman with your opinions on shutting down suites during an affordable housing crisis. http://content.calgary.ca/CCA/City+Hall/Municipal+Government/Office+of+the+Aldermen/Ward+Offices/Alderman+by+ward.htm Just click on your area\'s alderman and then click \"contact me\". *Once you\'ve added your name you\'ll come to a page asking for donations, this has confused some people, don\'t worry, if you see that page your name is on the list and you don\'t have to donate.

Sponsor

Please help take the initative and promote this petition, I created it, my name is Mike, I\'m a 26 year old Avionics technician, I\'ve never done anything quite like this before. I don\'t know much about politics, I\'m just beyond tired of watching what\'s happening in this city and decided maybe I shouldn\'t assume I\'m powerless to make a difference. I truely believe the only limitation on the number of names on this is my ability to get it out there, so pass this on!!!! If you have any tips for me, anyone I should E-mail, anywhere I should post a link to this E-mail me. asheepatthewheel@hotmail.com
