Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi: My Aspiration for Canada

“My aspiration for this place is that we don’t lose this remarkable thing that we have built here and that we continue to move forward on that simple promise that it doesn’t matter where you come from, or how you worship, or whom you love: you belong here. And you belong here to have a great Canadian life.” — Naheed Nenshi, Mayor Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  1. What a simple and bold statement ,matter of factly ,but many a politicians would find it quite difficult to make it ,Bravo mayor we are with you .


  2. Can’t make a simpler statement as this one. It is a cultural shock for people like me who emigrated here when i
    was 32, trying to learn what western living is all about, went through racialism but fought back and 30yrs later am
    still here. We all have different experiences, some worse, but have managed and seen lots of changes for the better.
