It’s unfathomable that the three canines that killed a Calgary girl over a yr in the past (June 2022) haven’t but been put down. What’s the holdup? Whoever is dithering on the choice to euthanize these animals must step up and do the suitable factor – if nothing else, out of respect for Betty Ann Williams, the sufferer of this tragedy.

The canines in query ought to be euthanized instantly and their breed banned from residential and metropolis property though I believe this will probably be thought-about “unfair” therapy of pit bull/X followers and their “rights.”

Can a historic plan assist with housing now?

With the dire want for extra housing in our metropolis, why are we not resurrecting the historical past, plans, financing, and different elements that accompanied the Wartime Housing Program (WTHP) in Canada through the Nineteen Thirties, ’40s and ’50s?

These houses have been small, however effectively well-built, two- and three-bedroom houses. I knew folks in Prince Albert, Sask., who owned and raised their households in such residences.

Absolutely, there may be historical past obtainable by way of the federal and provincial governments on the WTHP; with plans, monetary elements, and so forth. So Madam Premier, get your folks digging and, hopefully, one thing profitable from our previous may additionally be so for our future.
