All month long, libraries and library partners across Canada are raising awareness of the valuable role libraries play in Canadian’s lives.  More than just a place to find books, libraries promote cultural awareness, engage in the community, provide educational programs, support freedom of expression and so much more!

Libraries are more than building and books.  They are about the people who use them and work in them.  Libraries are a vital part of our communities.  In our cities, schools, and post-secondary institutions, libraries offer high-quality services at the heart of our lives.  We demand that employers and governments at the provincial and municipal levels take action.  Library workers need your support.  Library workers bring your library to life.  Sign the pledge at https://cupe.ca/sign-pledge-i-support-my-library-i-support-my-library-workers

Mayoral Survey: Mayors set the direction for cities: on public health, on poverty reduction and pressing for key priorities on the agenda at city hall.

So what they think about the issues matter, even though they’re just one vote on council.

In this election, we have over 20 candidates for mayor. Because of this, the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good partnered up with friends and partner organizations to reach out to these candidates and get our questions answered.

You can review the final document, assembled by our friends at the Calgary Climate Hub, here.

These questions range from general public policy (such as climate change and the environment), their visions for the city, and a variety of specific topics (such as Basic Income, their support of being a Fair Trade City, and more).
