Bronconnier - Re: "Police endorse city core patrols," May 12.

Does Dave Bronconnier really think we are fooled by his 
crime-fighting sleight of hand? First, he takes a wad of our tax 
dollars and pretends it's some kind of "found money" that needs to be 
spent. Then, he announces a half-baked crime-fighting scheme. We 
aren't sure how it's going to work, but it sounds like we will deal 
with graffiti, begging and drug addictions by rounding these folks up 
and throwing them into jail.

It seems once again that our mayor is trying to flesh out some sort 
of platform for his next election campaign rather than work for 
Calgarians and provide some real leadership.
