Ward 3, meet your candidates

Fiscal responsibility. Political experience: “I have been a member of every major federal party and I also have a bachelor’s degree in business.”

Gary Tremblay
Insurance broker.
Age: 40


No. 1 issue:
Fiscal responsibility. Political experience: “I have been a member of every major federal party and I also have a bachelor’s degree in business.”

Why run?

“Like all Calgary residents I have watched the bumbling and backroom style of municipal government for the last three years with growing alarm. As a city we are at a crucial moment, battered from mismanagement, we must go forward with a plan to reduce debt. Issues like a new five-year deal with developers, choosing between services or double-digit tax hikes, and mounting infrastructure deficits worry me as a homeowner and a citizen.”


Helene Larocque
Small business owner.
Age: 44

No 1. issue:

“Improving Ward 3 transportation. Improving roads and public transit east of the airport, and expediting the North Central C-Train line to Northern Hills communities and Calgary Airport.”

Political experience:

Alderman, Ward 3, 2004-07.

Why run?

“People like my results-driven approach and have encouraged me to stand for election. I’m the only Ward 3 candidate who lives in the ward where I’ve resided for more than 20 years. I want transportation and city services improved and I’m confident I’m the right person to do that.”


Jim Stevenson
Alderman, Ward 3.
Age: 71

No. 1 issue:

The airport tunnel.

Political experience:

Served as Ward 3 alderman since 2007. Was also president of the northeast district of the Conservative party.

Why run?

“Better representation for the communities in the northeast, north central part. I believe that there needs to be more attention paid to community issues and that’s what I believe I’ve been doing in the last three years.”


Pervaiz Iqbal
Private property investor.
Age: 50

No. 1 issue:

“My No. 1 campaign issue is community safety. My priority is to ensure that the communities not only in my ward but those in the entire city of Calgary are safe and secure for the residents that live there.”

Political experience:

“My previous political experience is made up of my work with several candidates that have run for MP, MLA and civic elections in the past for the city of Calgary.”

Why run?

“I decided to run because I strongly feel that I can become the right voice for the citizens of my ward and can convey their message in city hall accurately.”
