Calgary needs a mayor to ‘meet this critical moment’ in 2021: Nenshi
In a year-end interview with Postmedia, the mayor said there are now two more major challenges on the list: a societal “reckoning” over systemic racism demanding action, including from the city government.

But first comes the question of who’s running — and the most intense scrutiny is on the mayor’s chair.
