May – MLA Rick Fraser’s Report


212th Interchange:

The province announced that they will partner with the City and Brookfield Residential Calgary to build the 212th Interchange. We worked hard lobbying the government for this development. THANK YOU to those of you who signed the petition. We had over 760 signatures.

New Schools:

Two more schools will be built in Calgary-South East:

-Cranston elementary (Calgary Board of Education)

-Auburn Bay elementary core (Calgary Catholic School District)

Both schools are scheduled to open in 2021.

I am working with CBE Trustee Stewart and CCSD Trustees Martin and Williams to keep our other needed schools as a top priority.

The Calgary Board of Education recently posted an update on the new South East High School (scheduled to open in 2018). For complete information you can visit their website at

For the 2018 school year, the South East High School will offer Grade 10 and Grade 11 programming expanding to Grade 12 for the 2019 school year. Students from Auburn Bay, Cranston, Copperfield, Douglasdale/Glen, Mahogany, McKenzie Lake, McKenzie Towne, New Brighton, and Seton will attend this school.
