The article focuses on the issue regarding the urban development plans for the cities in Canada, particularly in Alberta. It mentions that Alberta's Municipal Government Act was passed in 1968 to respond to the needs of the urbanizing population, but it has turned out to be weak for such responsibility. It also notes that there is a possible fiscal imbalance in the country, having funding gap between municipal government and their federal masters.
