The UCP’s MLA for Banff-Kananaskis Miranda Rosin is taking credit for her plan to introduce a private member’s bill which would designate Banff, Canmore and Jasper as special tourism designations.
This bill, although now in never-never land because the legislature has been dissolved, would have put much needed cash for desperately needed housing and infrastructure in the hands of these municipalities instead of the provincial government.
But, guess what? The New Democrat Party researched and were ready to prepare a similar bill during their tenure in government.
When the UCP got in, wonders upon wonders, they shelved this idea. I’m guessing they don’t really mean for Miranda’s bill to go forward.
Perhaps they just want to make our MLA look good.
