"Diane seems to be the only Councillor who remembers that they are voted to represent the views of the electors. The other 14 (Mayor included) seem to think they are the wise ones who know what is good for us and do not care to hear our views."
"I’d like to say thank you for continuing to serve our community with expertise and dedication. It’s sometimes a thankless job, and in these challenging times, often goes unnoticed or complained about. So thank you for your hard work."
Chris in Bridlewood
“Considering everything you are faced with and have to manage, you are great to help out with our situation. We noticed how nicely you handled the elder woman at the Canyon Meadows Community meeting which is just goes to the type of person you are. Many thanks!”
“I never thought about how really hard it must be to take the stances you have – keep up the great work. You are an intelligent gutsy lady. Not only do you represent our Ward, but you have shown yourself to be one of the intelligent members of Council. You are so bang on about the bridges, the raises, the parking. Keep up the good work. My wife and I are very impressed with you."
“I appreciate having a member of my city council come out and help [re. The Cell Tower], you have my vote just for taking the time to listen let alone inject your knowledge when it was such a devastating time for our city with the flooding but you did take the time so thank you."
"Diane, we wish you to know that your willingness to LISTEN to our concerns has not gone unnoticed and our best wishes and support is in your corner on this matter."
"Diane’s grounded, common-sense approach to politics and the respect she has garnered in working with her Council colleagues as a team player, have resulted in numerous policies and community investments being implemented since she entered public office. With over 35 years as a professional Registered Nurse, she listens to what is important to Calgarians.”
"Councillor Colley-Urquhart, thank you for your support of the Calgary Next review. I thought your article in today's Herald was very good and logical. Again, many thanks for your approach and ability to remain open to this idea. I wish our mayor did the same, Speaking of mayors, have you thought of running next time, you have my vote!"
“I want to thank you for meeting with our Building Bridges group from the Ethno-Cultural Council of Calgary. Many said afterwards that the visit with you was the highlight of their tour. Now they feel that our City Council is approachable – all because of you. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all that you have done in making our city more welcoming and diverse."
“I have been receiving your City Hall Updates and want to thank you for your continued support of the Shawnee Golf Course residents and keeping us in the loop.

“Thank you for all your hard work with us on the Shawnee Golf Course and your presentation at the public hearing. Shawnee Park will be a lovely community when it is complete. All the best.”
"Your common sense approach to the town hall meeting last night was very refreshing. I was also impressed with the way you handled the meeting letting everyone have their say and putting people back on track with facts when people started talking total emotion. You didn't shy away when the meeting went overtime. This approach to problem solving was refreshing."
Thomas from Woodbine
