Alderman wants Hart name commemorated
By NOVA PIERSON, CALGARY SUN


Stu Hart is gone, but his name should not be forgotten by Calgarians, says an alderman. Craig Burrows is determined to have a city street, building or park bear the Hart name, after the 88-year-old Stampede Wrestling founder died last week and his wife Helen passed in 2001.

"Stu and Helen gave a lot to this community and I think they should be recognized," said Burrows, who served as their area alderman and was once a neighbour of the Patterson Heights family.

"I'd like to see the city do something to commemorate his life and what they've done for the city of Calgary."

As well as putting the city on the map with Stampede Wrestling, Hart gave Calgarians some entertainment in the days before the Flames, Burrows said.

And he said Stu's volunteer work and charitable giving were behind him receiving the Order of Canada in 2001.

Burrows said he'll bring up the idea when aldermen meet next week for an agenda-setting meeting, where he hopes city staff will be asked to come forward at a later date with some options for bearing the Hart name.
