The #UNIGNORABLE Issues

The biggest issues facing our community today can be tough to see and even tougher to solve. Calgary and its surrounding area continues to be a rapidly-growing metropolitan area in Canada with more than 1.3 million residents. In our fast-paced society it can be hard to slow down, and easy to ignore the people—and problems—around us.

But we all know that problems don’t go away by simply ignoring them. When they go unattended, they grow until they become too ugly or painful to ignore.

So it’s time to coax these issues out of the shadows before they compound and become harder to solve. Let’s face them head on instead of turning a blind eye.
