Blanket 30 km/h speed limit among trio of options to be considered by council committee

  Blanket 30 km/h speed limit among trio of options to be considered by council committee City bureaucrats have prepared a suite of speed-reducing options that could see speed limits on all but Calgary’s busiest roads dropped to 30 km/h. However, some city councillors have reservations about the proposed reductions, saying there needs to be more evidence on the merit of blanket speed-limit reductions and equal emphasis on enforcement and education. “While I acknowledge that people pushing for the blanket change are very well-intentioned, I want to make sure that if council is going to spend time, money and resources on this that it actually gets us to the outcome we are all looking for,” said Coun. Jeromy Farkas, referring to increased safety.

His studio that filled with books and magazines — and one of the bigger collections of political memorabilia outside of a museum.

While he's collected busts of presidents, as well as their memoirs, it's his collection of political buttons and pins that is most impressive at nearly 1,000.

"I started collecting Nixon buttons about five or six years ago, and then in earnest a lot of Canadian stuff because I realized that people were getting rid of a lot of the B.C. and ... federal Canadian stuff."

Since political buttons are becoming less and less common, Planta decided to buy collectables on eBay. He says that American political memorabilia really picked up in the 1950s and 60s ... but didn't really get going in Canada until Pierre Trudeau's 1968 leadership campaign.

The politics fan says he knows other collectors in Vancouver that focus on the same memorabilia as he does, but he still considered the buttons and the collecting a dying art.  

"So it's urgent in that sense and I guess I'm just keeping it here for now until somebody else ... an institution wants this stuff."
