Vote of the Electors 2018 (Olympic Plebiscite)

Thank you to all the residents of Ward 1 who have contacted my office to provide me with their feedback on the Olympic Bid proposal. Your opinion is important to me and I am carefully keeping track of your response. I also strongly encourage everyone to come out and vote on Plebiscite Day, Tuesday, November 13, 2018.

Council approved a Vote of the Electors in respect to Calgary hosting the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. I can only speak for myself when I say I will honour the plebiscite results.

The question on the ballot will be:

Are you for or are you against Calgary hosting the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games?

__ I am for Calgary hosting

__ I am against Calgary hosting
