Federation of Canadian Municipalities Conference Wraps Up In Vancouver

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - Over 2,000 delegates representing 90 percent of Canada's population attended the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Conference in Vancouver this past weekend.

 

Five Lethbridge Councillors and Mayor Rajko Dodic attended on behalf of the city.

 

Dodic says it was a full four days with a number of study courses and tours, along with hearing from federal politicians like NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and various Conservative cabinet ministers.

 

It was also a good chance to meet with leaders of other municipalities. Dodic says "Red Deer called a meeting with us to discuss their integrated Fire/EMS system and the fact that they're being asked to centralize their dispatch as well, so we're going to hopefully be working together to try to convince the government that dispatch should still be out of our respective communities, Red Deer and Lethbridge, as opposed to Calgary and Edmonton."

 

They also passed some resolutions, one asking the federal government to have a cost benefit analysis of all their tough on crime measures that are impacting municipalities.
