CIES attends Cabinet Minster Kent Hehr Luncheon

CIES attended the Canadian Club of Calgary's luncheon for the Honourable Kent Hehr this past Friday, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence. Minister Hehr in fact became a member of the Canadian Club of Calgary in 2010. The event was held at the historical Ranchman's Club. A living piece of Calgary History, the Club was founded in 1891 and has been in its current location on 13th Avenue and 6th Street for more than a century.

Upon being introduced by his father, Richard Hehr, a New Beginning was the theme of Minister Hehr's first official address in Calgary, where he informed attendees about his portfolio and outlined his mandate for the future. Additionally, he took the time to answer questions about the Liberal platform in general. A gifted public speaker and an extremely affable individual, Hehr kept the sold out crowd engaged throughout, and mixed in a few great on liners along the way. CIES would like to salute Calgary home town boy Kent Hehr for his dedication to public service and wish him the best of luck in his time in Ottawa. For more photos of the event CLICK HERE.
