Council Members Travel To Federation of Canadian Municipalities Conference

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The Mayor and five Councillors are heading to Vancouver for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference.

 

It's an opportunity to hear from people like NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, and various Conservative cabinet ministers. As well, participants can take part in a number of study courses and tours.

 

Mayor Rajko Dodic feels a big benefit is the ability to network with elected officials from across Canada. He says "even though it's focused mainly on federal issues, undoubtedly we will be talking about local issues with respect to our counterparts from other cities. For example, I might be talking to a Councillor from Toronto and asking questions about how they're dealing with, for example, their recycling program or I might be talking to someone from Winnipeg and seeing how they deal with pest control, things of that nature."

 

Joining Dodic on the trip is Councillors Jeff Carlson, Faron Ellis, Liz Iwaskiw, Bridget Mearns and Ryan Parker.

 

The conference runs through the weekend and wraps up on Monday afternoon.
