This is about people-powered news! We launched this text-messaging effort to hear from Calgarians on everyday topics like housing, the cost of food and transit.
You tell us your experience, ask us your questions. We act on those themes and because of your input, we deliver news that's more useful, pointed and connected to what's happening now on the ground.
And we stay in touch regularly to keep you in the loop.
