MP Kent Hehr to Visit CIES

Kent Hehr has overcome enormous personal and political obstacles to become a Calgary Liberal MP and as a hometown boy, Albertans have been paying close attention to Hehr for years now, His profile has only increased since arriving on the national stage. CIES is honoured to have Kent join us next Thursday at our NE Location in Whitehorn to give an hour long presentation on Democracy in Canada to our clients, something he has been doing at Calgary area schools and more for several years.

A Member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta for Calgary-Buffalo from 2008 to 2015, Kent Hehr is a lawyer, community leader and Liberal Member of Parliament for the riding of Calgary Centre after winning in the 2015 Canadian general elections. Hehr was named Minister of Veterans Affairs in the federal Cabinet, by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, on November 4, 2015. Part of his mandate letter by the prime minister, was to reopen the nine veterans affairs offices closed by the conservative government, restore lifelong pensions for injured veterans, increase the value of the disability award, expand access to the permanent impairment allowance, create a veterans education benefit and more.

We look forward to Kent's presentation, and to having his trademark grin and positive attitude join us all here at CIES.
