busy spring for the city, fixing potholes today over 8800 alone up and filled in april alone. More than 4,000 repairs were completed, which is significantly higher than last year. The city points to the increase due to more days during the winter above 0 degrees as puddles typically formed during the freeze and thaw cycles. The increase felt here at auto sergeant so far. >> About maybe 8 to 10 people just come in. And just because of pothole damage, which could cause people 4 to $5,000. However, for some, it's not a cause that is consuming them, but rather my fear is the possible that we hit the so dangerous. >> That is just a matter time before this causes an injury accident or or worse yet, a fatality. Tyler barrow, ctv news, calgary. >> If you come across a pothole, you are encouraged to report it. The 3-1-1, >> Let's go outside to daniel tonight, heading into our weekend. How's the evening and the next few days ahead looking daniel. What I would say that the next couple days look, actually pretty similar to what we had today so today we had some cloud cover. We had some sunshine, we had some showers and yet some thunderstorms in calgary and that's the potential for the next 24 hours as well. Again as we head through the evening hours, couple has that pockets of showers still possible, even and non severe thunderstorm. 13 degrees is our daytime high in our current temperature winds relatively calm, but it picked up to about 20 kilometres per hour overnight, fog patches will develop. There's still the potential for a few showers as well. This leaves the some cloud cover for the morning hours again, some fog patches that will mix out in the morning and then some sunny breaks. But then by the time we get to about 3 in the afternoon, we get into the potential again of these pop-up showers and thunderstorms will talk more about the entire weekend in just a little bit tap. Thank you. Daniel. One of the biggest companies in the world has opened its largest canadian facility in calgary, a new amazon warehouse threw open its doors today and the massive bill does set to bring jobs and innovation to our city. >> Timm bruch has more on what that will mean for calgary and some of the challenges it could introduce. >> Situated in the e shepard industrial area. It's a massive facility. 2.8 million square feet to be exact. You might recognize the logo. Amazon's new as warehouses focused in on robotics. That means storage and retrieval of orders are done automatically. But don't worry, that hasn't completely cut out humans and our board all were all of the have grown from about 4,000 employees of which were with amazon in 2019 to about 6,000 people quarantine flight. >> Amazon reps say that 6,000 person workforce will soon become 7500 once this warehouse is full. We have had no issues so far in getting those we're all politicians in canada's fastest growing city have some work to do. I think the most important things that council has to keep its eye on right now is housing. >> Public safety and public transit infrastructure supports and services will need to keep up with a booming workforce. They're getting need. Schools are going to need health care and that's going to require all orders of government working together. The online retail giant promises it's calgary employees will be compensated fairly and be given growth opportunities. Both the mayor and the premier say they're already looking forward to it. >> Businesses can grow and thrive. >> Timm joins us from the amazon warehouse tonight at him. All this growth has led to kind of interesting contradiction in our labour market. Well, that's right, tara, that in flocks really lead to right now, a record level of employment in calgary, but also, if you can believe that a rising unemployment rate right now, we have more people working in our city, then ever before. But thanks to all the newcomers, we also have more people in our city looking for work, which means that unemployment rate is rising. Now, that's an extremely rare situation to be in. But it's entirely possible tariff. Our city continues to see 6% population growth. It's a situation we could find ourselves in once again. The next time stats canada releases its labour reports.

Four eligible farmers search for real life romance with a new crop of daters farming for love on ctv alberta's premier says changes to bill 20 are expected to be widely accepted by municipalities. Leaders across alberta are saying the opposite, arguing the bill continues to threaten local democracy. Chelan skulski reports. >> We heard loud and clear for municipalities that they would like us to provide more clarity. When asked about bill 20 amendments this week, alberta's premier said she heard loud and clear from municipalities and is changing legislation cabinet can now remove councillors by ordering a vote if they are unwilling, unable or refusing to do their job or if cabinet considers it to be in the public. Interest bylaws can also be repealed by cab. And if they exceed the scope of council conflict with the municipal government act, provincial policy or are on constitutional. We have an early indication that the approach that we're taking is one that will be widely accepted by the, by the municipalities. The same disappointment after the gecko is, you know, we're not sure what the spirit and intent of 2 key pieces of bill 20. They want to start taking away. >> The ability of the local voter to decide who represents them, then they can just start appointing members of council leaders of municipal groups across alberta called the criteria of a arguing it gives cabinet too much authority over local governments. A concern echoed by calgary's mayor. I haven't met the municipality yet likes a spill. >> It is fast overreach. It is the type of power grab that this government, frankly, I was trying to prevent the federal government from taking with their sovereignty at political scientist jared wesley says anger specifically from rural alberta could cost the ucp politicians in alberta that go against the public will. >> Don't last very hot. >> And I think that this premier's office may be forgotten. Wesley is also concerned the bills ban of vouching for people without id will prevent up to 50,000 albertans from voting in the next election. He says this allows the ucp to silence certain voters ends up being the government choosing its voters as opposed to the voters choosing its government. >> Most albertans, I think I would have a problem with that if they knew it was in the bill. The bill is expected to pass next week. Chelan skulski ctv news, edmonton. >> Protests against the ucp government are planned in calgary, edmonton and 6 other alberta communities on the weekend. Calgary's enough is enough. Ucp protesters at city hall tomorrow at 2:00pm. >> For a government that purported to be in that area and small government. It's certainly trying to centralize everything into one bakes into dictatorship. And that's a worry. >> Chief ucp government whip shane getson says in a statement that the government supports alberta's right to protest. And he says recent polls show alberta's largely supports the government's policies. The calgary catholic school board says it is still has stretched its resources as far as it can, and it still has to dip into reserve savings. The board has approved a budget with a 21.5 million dollar deficit we should is covering from savings board says provincial funding fall substantially shorter meeting the needs of students, especially with a role in growing by thousands every year. District is budgeting about 689 million dollars in revenue and 710 million in expenses. >> We are stretching those dollars as best we can. And I think that the fact that we're down to 1.5% of savings certainly says that we're spending all of the money that we're receiving on students. >> Calgary's public school board recently polled 2.6 million dollars from its reserves to cover its budget, also blaming provincial underfunding. It's connected daniel again for a five-day forecast. And now. >> Yes. And if you like the 20's, the sunshine, we're going to get that not as much this weekend, though, we're not looking at the warmth or a ton of sun for this weekend, but some all right. We got to a high of 13 for today and we

dipped down to 9 degrees. Says some of these little showers and thunderstorms zip through here. And then we went back up to 13. So that's our daytime high normal daytime highs. 18. So we're below normal. But this is an improvement of a couple degrees compared to yesterday medicine hat sitting at 13 lethbridge. I'm brooks into those mid teens as well as bounce and up to rocky mountain house. All right, we've had some activity, absolutely. Today, just in calgary alone, we saw some showers. We saw some non severe thunderstorms and really what developed along the foothills tracked off. And then you can see we had a lot of activity to the southeast part of this province. And just to zoom in, I do want to show you that a lot of this activity is really starting to die down for the evening. Near foremost, there's the south. But again, this is weakening as well. Still coming with a good downpour, but it's non severe. And you can see further to the southeast, just starting to move out. There's a sound there. But again, these are non severe. These are not as intense as they were earlier, but there are still pockets of showers and non-severe thunderstorms that are developing in tracking down. So we have the potential of seeing a little bit of that activity for these next couple hours before it's fully out of the way for today, even as we go for tomorrow. Tomorrow is a similar day was just should see a tad more sunshine for tomorrow. Here's a look at 7.30 in the morning. And you can see we will get some sunny breaks out there. Also some cloud appearance by the time we get to about 4:00pm, we get back into the chance in calgary, getting into the showers and thunderstorms. And as you can see, many communities have that possibility later in the day tomorrow, once again sunday should remain mainly dry and sunny for the morning. But there's a system that the court it will be just off to the north infectious a little bit. We may even see a couple raindrops, most likely by 1:00pm and through parts of the afternoon, but less likely to see rain on sunday compared to saturday, especially later in the day. Highs of 15 for the next couple of days. And if you like the 20's and you like a little more sunshine, that's on tap for monday and tuesday of next week. That's your capital chef 5 day forecast. >> I couldn't yell a high-risk offender who disappeared from a vancouver halfway house last fall, sparking a 10 day manhunt has been sentenced to 29 months behind bars.
