Bilous releases statement on Municipal Governance Act MOU

EDMONTON – NDP Municipal Affairs critic Deron Bilous released the following statement on the government’s announcement of a Memorandum of Understanding on the Municipal Governance Act review:

“Alberta’s cities and towns continue to face uncertainty because of this government’s wrong priorities. We’ve seen delay after delay on this file—whether we’re talking about city charters or the provincial law that governs cities, towns and counties.

“On two separate occasions, the government has signed MOUs on the big city charters. Today, they’re yet again signing a document that amounts to having a plan to make a plan. Regular Albertans and municipal governments plan for the future and work hard to meet their deadlines. Why won’t this PC government do the same?”
