Urban Policy Trends: Where Should the City of Calgary Spend its Money?

  • Jack Lucas

Abstract

The day after Calgarians voted to end the city’s bid for the 2026 Olympic Games, city council quietly began work on a much larger project, one whose price tag – $19 billion – dwarfed the cost of the Olympic games several times over. Unlike the Olympics, this project was not widely reported in the national newspapers, and there were no televised debates at the new Central Library. What was this enormous project? The city’s four-year budget.
