Green Line LRT approval delivers certainty for Calgarians and the business community

CALGARY, AB – “The decision by Council to approve the Green Line LRT Project provides much-needed certainty for Calgarians and our business community.

“Now, more than ever, we need to be focused on long-term economic recovery and how to best position our city for future success. We have always advocated for moving forward with conviction and resolve towards building vibrant communities and a vibrant city.

“We know that infrastructure investment is a tried and true lever that governments can pull in times of recession – this project will create 20,000 jobs when Calgarians need them most, and lead to further economic development and opportunities.

“Now, it is up to us as citizens to hold City Council accountable on the budget and timelines it has outlined for the project.”
