From The Calgary Herald — Mayor Nenshi
To Developers: "Don't Bring Us Crap"

In his annual Chamber of Commerce speech, the mayor lauded the city planning department’s efforts to ease some of the bureaucratic hurdles that home builders and commercial developers routinely complain about — but the city shouldn’t settle for low-quality developments.
“You cannot come as the industry to say to us, ‘It takes too long for me to get my approvals’ if you’re bringing us crap,” Nenshi told the luncheon crowd.
