$5K “pay to play” event cancelled after “dumb” critics call out Mayor Nenshi

Naheed Nenshi has been caught in yet another scandal involving his mayoral campaign: Architecture firm Kasian ended up cancelling an event they were to host which required attendees to donate $5,000 per person to hang out with the mayor. 

This firm has been involved in designing public buildings, which means they’ve received public money.

Eyebrows were also raised when they paid the roundtrip fare for Nenshi to speak at a symposium they were hosting in 2011.

The latest event's $5,000 price tag also happens to be the maximum allowable contribution amount for mayoral candidates. And the event was likely going to be pretty cozy, since only twenty spots were available.

Nenshi responded to critics who called this a cash for access event by calling them dumb! 

But after Nenshi claimed the event had been mischaracterized, it was cancelled anyway.

Does anyone else notice that Nenshi tries to play by his own rules? I’ve catalogued similar behaviour in other stories whether it had to do with raising money for his campaign or to help pay his legal bills.

And now he’s involved in what looks like a cash for access scandal, very similar to those we’ve seen with the Clinton Foundation and Justin Trudeau.

He should have known this would never fly but that wasn’t going to stop him from trying, until that is, us dummies called him out on it.

Nenshi and his backers just got “dusted back from the plate”… Now let us see if Calgarians have the smarts and will to follow up on this small victory… In other words “put up or shut up”…

Nenshi is another highly corrupt politician, gets haughty when his questionable ethics are exposed. Such a predictable response from socialists….arrogant, elitist, and not too bright!
