Opinion

Since the last election, Lethbridge grew by 8.6%, Red Deer may be as high as 2.8% or as low as 1.8%

Going into this term, back in 2013 Red Deer had a population of 97,104 residents and Lethbridge had a population of 90,417 residents. A difference of 6,692 residents.
2014 Red Deer had 98,585 to Lethbridge’s 93,004, a difference of 5,581 residents.
2015 Red Deer had 100,807 to Lethbridge’s 94,804, a difference of 6,003.
2016 Red Deer fell to 99,832 while Lethbridge grew to 96,828, a difference of 3,004.
2017 Red Deer decided to not do their annual census because they needed growth to justify the cost and accepted the 2016 numbers on April 18, 2017. Lethbridge grew to 98,198 so the difference is now 1674 residents.
If Red Deer had maintained it’s outward migration at 2016 levels then the difference now would be 699 residents.
If Lethbridge maintained a growth rate of 114 residents per month and Red Deer maintained losing 81 residents per month then in 3.6 months or December 1 2017 Lethbridge would be larger in population than Red Deer.
After perusing the data available during this term of office, (4 years) Lethbridge grew by 8.6% and Red Deer grew by 3.8% to 2015 then shrank by 1% in 2016 and if the outward migration was stemmed then Red Deer will end this term with a 4 year growth of 2.8% if not we could end with only a 1.8% growth.
Can we talk about it, please?
