Mayor Naheed Nenshi re-elected in Calgary! #yycvote

Wonderful to see Mayor Naheed Nenshi re-elected in Calgary. Great news for the Green Line LRT and the Southwest BRT. Some interesting parallels in the Calgary election and transit scene and in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Hope to be able to meet Nenshi one day. Also, big congrats to my friend Chris Cowperthwaite and all his amazing campaign efforts. From what I observed from here, it was a grassroots driven, digitally-savvy, and most importantly a fun and friendly campaign to be part of. That’s how it’s done.
