Encouraging Affordable Housing

While building more houses creates more jobs and is awesome, we can further encourage more housing spaces by encouraging people to rent or share their spaces. We can be inspired by LA’s encourageable Share Pods system and create places like those for individuals or encourage others to rent their homes for cheap. There are plenty of houses in Calgary and often they have a lot of room in them. Here is a link expressing... more »

Transform Calgary into Canada's Most Compassionate City

Check out this video to experience what a compassionate Calgary could be:


Imagine what it would be like when Calgary is recognized as the most compassionate city in Canada. Neighbours are helping neighbours just because they want to. Elderly people’s sidewalks are shovelled. People stop to help someone with a broken-down vehicle. Homeless people are acknowledged. There might not even be any... more »

Allocate 10% of New Condos to Poor in exchange for Action Plan

Any new multi family complex built within Calgary , allocate 10% of the units to the poor or those waiting for permanent housing.

An upstream approach to urban development and economic benefits

If we are striving to build Calgary into a "resilient, inclusive and accessible community" then we do need a revolution. We need to look at new ways of building our city and supporting the wellbeing of us all. No more urban sprawl: stop all development of any new communities and focus on making the vast suburbs we have into complete communities and enriching the spaces we already have created. There is absolutely no... more »

Geospacial blockchain core container allocation

To ease home ownership acquisition and stability in light of increasing lifestyle and situational volatility, we have to address a number of key factors. Simply put: 1) individuals move around a lot 2) what they need changes 3) housing is expensive 4) law enforcement tracking through DMV registry is not adequate. My idea is to have a metal container home as a "core" that stays with an individual, and can be docked into... more »

Automated Transportation

Continue to develop the dedicated bus lanes. Once one is complete convert the busses that access those lanes to driverless vehicles controlled partially by a central computer. Then sell tolls to owners of driverless cars that allow the buyer access to these lanes as well. By doing so, they submit their car to be partially controlled by the central hub as well, at least while it occupies the dedicated lane. As time goes... more »

Water Consumption Data

Offering an “opt in” program to install an inexpensive cellular device on the existing water meter. The customer would then have access to 15 minute water usage data via smartphone app (you can download “eye on water” for free demo) and a web portal. They can receive emails or texts warning them of excessive usage etc etc

What Industries Are We Going to Focus On To Diversify?

I see technology as a means to an end, it is used to be more competitive, more efficient, reducing costs to deliver goods and services that Calgarians want and need. I think we need to step back from the race to create more technology and decide what industries we want to focus on to diversify our economy. Any economy has natural advantages. Calgary's and Alberta's clearly rely on energy but where can we focus our efforts... more »

Startup to provide sustainable co-housing and provide jobs

A startup that will provide venture capital for co-housing of different types (community, dorm-style) and create jobs is what the city needs. This is not a typical social housing but catered to those who are working or receiving pension or new to the City with annual income of $xxxxx. The idea of living in an affordable "community" and make it sustainable or even create jobs that members would be benefit from is timely.... more »
