The Province may listen if we speak

We were glad to hear Mayor Peter Brown say that he feels the Province is listening to Airdrie’s needs in his State of the City address on June 18. See story on pages 1 and 2.

Although it may not always seem that our small city (compared to larger centres like Calgary and Edmonton) is getting the attention it needs, having people like the mayor and the rest of the members of the Airdrie Health Foundation bending politicians ears about issues that are important to residents can only help.

In 2010 and 2011, Airdrie residents, parents, politicians, business people and others came together to lobby the Province for more schools and it worked.

Three new schools were announced in Airdrie. One has already opened its doors and two more will open in September.

This proves we can have our voices heard on the Provincial level and get the services we need if we are loud enough.
