Lethbridge Minute: Canada Day, Workforce Adjustments, and Petitions Do Work


Lethbridge Minute - Your weekly one-minute summary of Lethbridge politics


This Week In Lethbridge:


Last Week In Lethbridge:

  • We hope you had a great Canada Day. It was hot. Really hot!

  • People sometimes ask us whether petitions work and whether politicians ever listen to them. Well, here's your answer: almost 3,500 people signed our petition to repeal the City's mask mandate and the politicians were forced to listen, so thank you for joining us on that mission. We're just getting started and we couldn’t do this without your support. If If you'd like to help us put more pressure on Council and bring some Common Sense back to City Hall, please consider signing up as a volunteer or making a donation!

  • Finally, the City has reportedly made a "workforce adjustment" (bureaucrat speak for firing staff). This comes as part of a budget savings initiative we have previously reported on, but the City have refused to provide any further details, saying only that it will be discussed more at a future Council meeting.




Common Sense Lethbridge doesn't accept any government funding and never will. We think you should be free to choose, for yourself, which organizations to support. If you're in a position to contribute financially, you can make a donation here.



If you're not in a position to donate, we understand, but if you appreciate our work, you can help by spreading our message. Please email this post to your friends, share it on Facebook or Twitter, and help make sure every Lethbridgian knows what's really going on at City Hall.
