The Canadian Club of Calgary is extremely pleased to welcome The Honourable Kent Hehr, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence, as our January 15 luncheon speaker, whose talk is entitled “A New Beginning”.
“The Honourable Minister” is better known to us as “Member Kent”, insofar as he has been a member of the Canadian Club since 2010. We are not alone; so many organizations and individuals have come to know Kent Hehr because he show up, listens and gets involved with activities he knows about. Who does not have a picture of Kent wheeling through a crowd, smiling, shaking hands and engaging with everyone he meets? He is a force in every audience and gathering; more importantly, he will take your message forward and ensure that your story is retold and, if possible, action is taken to support your cause. He is a tireless worker on behalf of and for “the people”.
In addition to his ministerial posts, Kent now occupies the most important (some might say, “powerful”) federal political position in southern Alberta. That is, the federal government looks to Kent to hear about and understand, what the most pressing issues affecting Albertans today. Tangibly, he has access to resources to support and redress issues/initiatives. Regardless of what political stripe you may be, federal governments always designate a senior minister for each region of the country. Today, Minister Hehr is that person for southern Alberta.
You will want to be at the Ranchmen’s Club on January 15 to know and understand what “New Beginning” Minister Hehr envisions. We need to be aware of the road that we are now embarked on, from the person who play a major part in making it happen. Only by understanding where we are going can we communicate with government to let communicate where we stand.
Plan to be there. There is limited seating for this event.
