The Hill Times: Power & Influence: Big City Mayors with Big Challenges – Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi

Ismailimail is proud to share Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi featured on the front cover of the Spring 2015 edition of Power & Influence.

Mayor Naheed Nenshi becomes the third Canadian Ismaili to be featured in The Hill Times‘ edition of Power & Influence.

Previously, Khalil Shariff, CEO, Aga Khan Foundation Canada and Arif Lalani, Canadian Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates have been profiled in the Power & Influence rankings.

Mr. Nenshi, 43, is considered one of Canada’s coolest mayors with an important future in politics. Earlier this year, he became the first recipient of the “World Mayor” prize awarded by the City Mayors Foundation, an international urban affairs think tank.Power & Influence - spring 2015 - Calgary Mayor Nahid Nenshi on cover cover

Mr. Nenshi took the mayor’s office in Calgary’s 2010 election, a campaign that successfully harnessed social media and became known as the “Purple Revolution” for its campaign colour. Mr. Nenshi is close to Defence Minister Jason Kenney, knows Stephen Harper, and may have been seen recently, and/or not so recently, in political sparring matches with former Sun TV personality Ezra Levant.

“Whoever can figure out how to fund transit in Toronto and in Vancouver has a very good chance of being the next Prime Minister.”
