Last week, we sent a short questionnaire to all candidates running in the Calgary 2017 Municipal Election.
Remember, the election is on October 16th but you can vote early from October 4-11. We encourage you to learn about the candidates running in your ward. Vote for whoever you think will do a good job and represent your vision for the city.
