A city is only as strong as its human capital, and Calgary has
been blessed with some of the country’s greatest leaders. To
preserve this remarkable legacy, the Calgary Chamber asked 69
prominent Calgarians to write letters in which they share their advice
and experience with the city’s next generation of leaders. Calgary stands
tallest when we rise on the shoulders of those who came before us. For the
coming generations, their future is our future and the wisdom contained
in Dear Calgary will inspire all of us to stand up and lead.

Included in Dear Calgary are letters from:
• Hayley Wickenheiser, four-time Olympic gold medalist
• Lois Mitchell, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta
• Paul Brandt, nine-time Juno Award winning country music artist
• Naheed Nenshi, Mayor of Calgary
• W. Brett Wilson, entrepreneur and philanthropist
• Arlene Dickinson, author, entrepreneur and television personality

“My advice to anyone is this: commit to your dreams, and you’ll improve
the lives of all around. Invest in self-reflection. Test your burning why.
Feed your passions. Share your gifts. Lead by example. Expand your
reach. Practise random acts of kindness and most of all . . . Have Fun!”
—Karen Radford

“We are fortunate to live in one of the best cities, provinces and
countries in the world for a multitude of reasons. As the fate of our
nation depends on up-and-coming leaders, I challenge you to think of
your role in terms of Change, Choice, Connection and Compassion.”
—Ron Mannix
