"I meet with companies from all over the world that are evaluating business opportunities in Calgary. There is a common theme to the feedback they share and that is that we truly are a friendly place to do business. Our western hospitality is incorporated in all elements of their experience and the impact is clear. When people move here they become part of a family and take part in building a vibrant economy."
