In an effort to provide 'one stop shopping' for citizens of Lethbridge and to provide only one survey to the candidates, Lethbridge Accountability invited groups to join us in the creation of one survey for the 2017 municipal election. Overwhelmingly, we received very favourable responses. Information about each group is listed below in alphabetical order.

    Downtown Lethbridge is a visionary collective of business leaders who believe that the heart of the city beats in its centre core. The organization they formed in 1987, the Downtown Lethbridge Business Revitalization Zone (BRZ), has succeeded, through close co-operation on mutual interests, in adding the necessary vibrancy to make that heart beat with a strong and steady pulse.

  • Lethbridge & District Labour Council

    The Lethbridge & District Labour Council represents the interests of Lethbridge and Area affiliated workers in several occupational fields. It is the umbrella organization for several local affiliated unions.

    We advocate on behalf of all working people in many different ways – from organizing campaigns and rallies, to lobbying politicians, to speaking out in the media and to business on key issues, to representing Lethbridge's labour movement, to developing partnerships with the community.

    Our goals are simple – what we wish for ourselves, we desire for all.

    That includes decent wages, healthy and safe workplaces, fair labour laws, equality rights, dignity in retirement, a sustainable environment and respect for basic human rights.

    We believe that unions are a positive force for democratic social change – and that by working together we can improve our society for everyone.

  • No Drilling Lethbridge

    We are a small volunteer group of Lethbridge residents working to protect the health and safety of the people in Lethbridge, by being opposed to oil drilling and fracking within OUR city limits. We believe that the risks for Lethbridge greatly outweigh the benefit of acquiring the natural resource. We are not opposed to oil and gas exploration, generally. We are concerned about the negative impacts on OUR city and its residents if oil and gas drilling is allowed inside OUR city limits.
