  1. Council voted 10-4 on lowering residential speeds across the City. Cllr. Demong asked for a vote so that it can inform the next Council but was voted down. I also asked that this be a plebiscite vote, but Council voted no.

Below is a map of the Ward and what will change. Major roads will not change, and arterial roads through a community stay at 50 km/h but all residential roads are going to 40 km/h. This change will take effect in April 2021. #yyc #yyccc #ableg
