Why Calgary?

"After spending time in various cities during my career, including Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver, I chose Calgary as home for my family, my business and my career. This was a very easy choice, as the dedication, community, and business support for all and the overall can do entrepreneurial spirit shown in all that Calgarians are and do is truly contagious and inspirational. If any city can make a positive impact on our planet, it is Calgary."
