Calgary election 2021: Who won in Ward 14?

Peter Demong is projected to win another term as councillor of Ward 14, which he has represented since 2011.

The city’s south-central ward looked slightly different for this election, losing the community of Douglasdale to Ward 11.

Here’s a quick look at the four candidates running for council in Ward 14.

This latest term saw Demong sit on the city’s planning and urban development, utilities and corporate services, and intergovernmental affairs committees. He was also one of two city council representatives at the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association.

In March, the province moved forward towards extended producer responsibility (EPR), a file Demong has been doing advocacy work on for years. EPR could see the cost of recycling plastics put on plastics manufacturers instead of municipal/provincial governments.

Demong promises progress on zero-based policy review and EPR.
