This month, we are welcoming in a new Calgary city council. I wish to extend my sincere appreciation to all the candidates who put their names forward and congratulations to those who will be leading our city for the next four years. I look forward to working with the new council to overcome our current challenges and continue to build Calgary as a hub of energy, innovation, and diversity.
The pandemic has been one of the greatest collective challenges we are facing, however, major financial institutions such as National Bank, Bank of Montreal, Alberta Treasury Branch, and Desjardins Group have predicted that Alberta will lead Canada’s economic recovery coming out of the pandemic. We are starting to see those forecasts take shape as more Albertans get back to work.
We’re seeing investments in traditional industries like agriculture and oil and gas, and we’re seeing massive new investments in growing industries like film and television, technology, and renewable energy like hydrogen. However, we will not be able to achieve our full economic potential until we overcome the pandemic. That’s why we encourage all eligible Albertans to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their communities.
While we work together to create a prosperous future for Calgary, we must also take time to reflect on how we got to where we are now. November is when our thoughts turn to Remembrance Day. It is a time for us to reflect, remember, and honour the brave men and women who have served and those who continue to serve in the Canadian Forces.
As always, it is my honour to serve as your MLA. Please feel free to contact our office at any time.
