Why this petition matters

Started by deleted deleted

With the stroke of a pen, the city has changed the RFP to allow for an open-ended budget on the KED. This was done because, in the city's own words, "Proponents have been unwilling to assume the risks associated with a fixed-price contract early in the design process and, in some cases, have been declining to participate in the RFP altogether."

In simple terms, the city has gone from saying give us a design that fits these criteria and build it for 92 million, to we'll work out price as we go.

Contact your councillor and tell them this isn't what we signed up for.

Please sign the petition and share!
