Since the by-election in April, it has been an eventful few months. From my swearing in ceremony in Ottawa, to moving the constituency office in Calgary, to celebrating Canada’s Birthday and attending Stampede events, it has been a whirlwind of activity as I have worked hard to hit the ground running with my new job as your MP.
Following the by-election in the spring, we moved the constituency office to a convenient location on the corner of Macleod Trail and Southland Drive [1010 – 10201 Southport Rd SW]. Our office hours are from 9 AM to 4 PM, Monday to Friday. I am available to meet with constituents to help navigate government services, and to listen to your concerns regarding issues facing our community.
This summer was particularly memorable as we celebrated the sesquicentennial of Canada’s Confederation. Canada’s 150 Birthday offered us an opportunity to reflect on our history and shared values, and to look optimistically towards the future.
Over the summer, I was able to take in many events in our community. From Stampede BBQ’s and pancake breakfasts, to fun charity activities; I had a wonderful time meeting and talking with constituents. I can’t thank our community associations and their volunteers enough for putting on such terrific events – you really bring our communities together and it wouldn’t be possible without your hard work.
As autumn approaches, I am preparing to head back to Ottawa. Parliament will soon be sitting again and I will be doing my best to represent our great riding. If you have any thoughts about what is being debated or voted on in Parliament, please send me a note [firstname.lastname@example.org] or call my office at 403-253-7990. I always appreciate hearing from you and it helps me represent you better in Ottawa.
I hope you have a safe, fun, and memorable autumn.
Bob Benzen MP
