After 10 years, it’s time to show Mr. Harper the exit. I ask for your vote on Monday, October 19th so I can continue to stand up for the Canada we love and want.

Matt Masters Burgener is a small business owner and community leader

 

I’m a husband, father, musician and small business owner who grew up in south-west Calgary. As a graduate of the University of Calgary, my work is focused on strengthening our city’s local culture and community while building pride in Alberta.

 

I come from conservative roots. My mother, Jocelyn Burgener, served as a conservative MLA in Ralph Klein’s government.

 

I’m proud of my country and my hometown of Calgary but worry about the increasing challenge Canadians face and those that are falling behind. I want my children to have the same opportunities that I have had and to inherit the same beautiful natural environment that defines our country. I ask for your vote on October 19 so I can work for you to build the Canada we love and want.
