A vote for me is a vote for strong public policy, financial oversight, a dedication to community, and a commitment to building a strong future for all Calgarians.
Why I'm Running
I would not be who I am today if it wasn't for the opportunities that Calgary afforded me. I want to give back to the city that has given me so much, but there are big challenges on the horizon. This is the most important election in decades. We need the right people around the table, who set aside ideological differences to make evidence-based decisions in the best interest of Calgarians.
My parents instilled in their children a strong work ethic and a passion for service. My father, Shahid Mian immigrated to Canada from Pakistan in 1985 and works in automative manufacturing. My mother, Catherine worked as nurse for 43 years. My brother, Ismael Mian (pictured) served in the Canadian Armed Forces and I represented Canada at the 2016 Olympics.
A Community Builder
I'm a passionate volunteer with organizations like Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Calgary and Ask Her YYC. I have served on national working groups on topics such as good governance and risk management. I've published numerous academic papers as well as opinion pieces in the Toronto Star and CBC.
In addition to being an Olympian, I am a University World Champion and Commonwealth Games Medalist. I not only rose to the top of my sport, but I've been instrumental in changing it for the better, having served on the Board of Directors and Management Team of Wrestling’s National Sport Organization. I've achieved excellence on limited resources and will bring that same drive to city hall.
