Wow Korzym, you have the nerve to write this and then send that PM to SmokWawelski? Dissapointing is the only word that comes to mind...
Good on ya for sticking around with us SmokWawelski!
As for where I may fall on all this political spectrum talk. Despite other posters "theories" about all of us since we are on this forum I fall on the quite conservative side of things. Although like some others my recent voting history on the provincial side of things would not indicate that.
I see the need to invest money in areas and things that will better the quality of life in our city. Be that transit, parks, pathways, policing, and yes even pedestrian bridges and traffic overpasses. The fiscally conservative person in me also has no problem seeing parking fees implemented for the LRT lots.
I don't take an "us versus them" stand on pretty much every issue in the city. When a topic comes up at work or out and about with someone with a differing view I have no problem engaging them in a healthy dialogue about it. Usually over the course of this one discovers that a lot of the negative sentiment in this city (not all of it however) is nothing more than that negative viewpoint just rattling off the headlines from our media. Once you start to talk to them about more than that, and the actual meat of a subject you find that they may actually see more than what the Sun, Herald, Global, and CTV tell them.
We as citizens of Calgary are all in this together, there is no line in the sand here. Dare I say the majority of us love this city and want to see it become even better.
