Calgary Zoo

Alderman has idea for Calgary Zoo: more aldermen!

The Zoo receives $6-milion, yearly, in funding from the city and Alderman Bob Hawkesworth thinks it’s a shame aldermen no longer serve on the boards of some publicly funded facilities.

“The groups we are talking about, the major attractions, may have missed out themselves by no longer having direct access to council and administration,” says Hawkesworth.

Hawkesworth says he doesn’t think having an alderman on the board would have prevented any animal deaths but it may help with governance.
