Stop Funding Special Interest Groups
Office of the Mayor
The City of Calgary

The reason for my letter is because like many other citizens in Calgary I am concerned about the ever increasing tax burden on hard working families. One suggestion we have at Concerned Christians Canada (CCC) is to review the City Of Calgary Family & Community Support Services (F.C.S.S) in it's entirety and eliminate any funding to interest groups.
One group funded by the city of Calgary is the CBCA a group promoting abortion and the homosexual lifestyle. I encourage you to take a good look at their website www.cbca.ab.ca and I think you will be quite alarmed. Below you will find a recent media release about our position.
I am sure you are aware that Calgary has more churches and Christian organizations per capita than any other City in Canada. Calgary is a God fearing City in the heart of Canada’s Bible belt. Needless to say, I was completely shocked to see an organization such as CBCA is funded by the City Of Calgary F.C.S.S.
I am sure that you as a fellow Christian and others on council were just simply unaware that these types of groups are taking from the public purse. However, this information begs the following questions to be asked and I would appreciate a response.
- Did You know that this type of funding was going on?
- Does Council approve this funding?
- How is the funding granted?
- Are you in favour of the CBCA funding?
- What other organizations are funded by the City Of Calgary?
- Will you move to eliminate the funding of all interst groups such as the CBCA?
It is time we look at needs and wants and make the neccessary cuts in the right areas.
Looking forward to your response.
