Calgary Ward 11

Brian Pincott re-elected in Ward 11

Elbow Park and Riverdale were two communities in this riding that were hard hit by flooding in June. Another hot topic in the riding will probably be the newly-announced ring road deal in the city's southwest.

Areas in the riding hard hit by June's flooding

Brian Pincott has reclaimed his seat in Ward 11.

He was facing some familiar competition for council as Wayne Frisch and James Maxim both ran in 2010.

Elbow Park and Riverdale were two communities in this riding that were hard hit by flooding in June. Another hot topic in the ward is the recently-announced ring road deal in the city's southwest. Neighbours in Tsuu T'ina Nation will vote on that Oct. 24. Whichever way the vote goes will trigger years of road construction affecting the ward.
