Remarks at Walmart Fulfillment Centre Grand Opening in Rocky View County

Rocky View County, AB

10:00 A.M. MST

GEORGE CHAHAL, M.P.: Good morning, everyone.

Thank you for coming this morning and on behalf of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Government of Canada, and as the Liberal MP from Calgary Skyview it's a pleasure to be here on the grand opening of this fulfillment facility.

As Patricia mentioned, about 30 years ago, Walmart came to Calgary and I had the opportunity to work for Walmart during those days and transitioning their old stores into Walmart stores. So if you're fixing any of the fixtures from way back when, they may have been me putting them together.

It was a great experience for me and a great opportunity to work and get the job experience. I went on to my further studies, and it's so inspiring to see that Gaurav and so many others have had an opportunity to work for Walmart, and build a future of advancing your education, but building a family. And Walmart has contributed so much to our city and our communities, with investing with lots of money and building these great facilities but providing great jobs for Calgarians.

I have a distribution facility in my constituency off 36th Street. I know many of my constituents who work there, and I got to meet many of my constituents today who work here. So thank you so much for your contribution, all the employees for your tremendous work and supplying goods and services to Calgary and Western Canada and throughout North America.

And thank you Walmart for your generous donations to these amazing community groups who do a great job in our community. The Dashmesh Cultural Center feeds thousands of people every year and did a tremendous job during COVID and I know that donation today will go a long way in supporting and feeding so many Calgarians in need. Thank you so much.


Office of George Chahal, M.P.
