  • The City of Calgary is asking for input on the approved use of city parks.

Thousands of Calgarians embrace remote control modelling as a hobby. The RC modelling community is comprised of those who enjoy building and operating miniature robots, boats, cars, trucks, planes, helicopters and drones. We think the current Parks Bylaw specifically outlawing remote control activity of any type is inherently unfair. The RC Modelling community is of such numbers that it deserves recognition as a legitimate public recreational activity and deserving of the same support as other groups such golf, soccer, baseball, amongst others. Admittedly, the nature of the RC hobby might require perhaps some designated RC spaces and/or basic rules with regard to operation in public spaces but some consideration must be given for the number of Calgarians involved. We ask that RC Modelling community make its position known by responding to the City survey at https://engage.calgary.ca/parksbylaw . Please forward this message to friends, associates and your city councillor.
