PETITION: Calgary Mayor Nenshi MUST resign over city's property tax crisis

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi is on the outs with City Council, and Calgarians are joining at least two city councillors calling for the unpopular left-wing mayor’s resignation.

Councillors Joe Magliocca and Sean Chu spoke with The Rebel at a small business rally outside City Hall today, saying that it is time for the mayor to step aside.

After property tax notices were sent out recently, many small businesses took to social media to share with the public the ballooning cost of operating in Calgary.

A drinking establishment in Calgary’s Beltline displayed their property taxes on the sign outside their venue, showing an increase from $74,000 to $208,000 from 2014 to 2019.

And they are not alone! As you’ll see in my report from a rally outside City Hall, businesses from dance studios to law firms say they are struggling, and even closing their doors — because of Mayor Nenshi’s mismanagement!

But what are we doing about it? And how can you fight back?

The Rebel is launching a petition, and we urge you to sign it: Nenshi must resign or be removed.

If he does not resign within the week, we will present the petition to Minister of Municipal Affairs, Kaycee Madu, to exercise the authority vested in him by the Municipal Government Act to dismiss Mayor Naheed Nenshi from his position as Mayor of Calgary.

So, if you agree with our stance and want to support our valiant small business owners, please sign our petition.

This cannot go on. It's time to fire Mayor Nenshi! 

Sign the petition!

We, the undersigned, demand the immediate resignation of Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi. 

Will you sign?
