Now is a time of opportunity in the Senate. Today, more than ever, people are thinking about the future of this institution and what can be done to improve its work and relationship to Canadians.
As a fourth generation Albertan and a passionate Canadian, I believe that the Senate can be relevant to the people that it serves. I ran to be your Alberta elected senator because I believe that the Senate is a valuable component of Canada’s democracy – a place where long-term thinking can be done, new ideas explored and advanced, regional interests represented, and important policy questions given careful consideration. As your voice in the Senate, I bring my knowledge and experience from both business and community service to tackle the important issues that our country faces. I work to bring an Albertan perspective to Ottawa, and to promote Alberta’s interest in finding practical, common sense solutions to our country’s challenges.
Through this site I will keep you up to date on Senate developments, explore the Chamber’s role in Canada’s democracy, and outline my priorities as a legislator. I encourage you to sign up for my newsletter, connect with me through social media, and contact my office to share your views and ideas. I would also encourage young Albertans to explore the many exciting and unique opportunities to learn and work on Parliament Hill. The future of our country and our parliament is yours!
We are the inheritors of a strong, stable, and prosperous country that has limitless potential. I know that together we can build a stronger Alberta and a stronger Canada.
Senator Doug Black
