Endorsements

Gordon Dirks

"Karim Jivraj is everything one could hope for in a Conservative MP: fluently bilingual in English and French, private sector background in international law and business with two law degrees, principled Conservative and articulate champion for Alberta, extensive grassroots political experience and Conservative Party member for over 14 years. Karim has the political experience, the intellectual depth, the personal warmth and an unbelievably passionate work ethic – all which are needed to defeat Kent Hehr and the Liberals in 2019. I am very pleased to endorse Karim Jivraj as a stellar candidate to carry the torch for our federal Conservative Party in Calgary Centre."
- Gordon Dirks, former Calgary Elbow MLA & Alberta Minister of Education 


Jim Silye

"Karim is the first guy to come around in a long time who reminds me why I ever got into politics. The conservative movement was in desperate need of new blood and new vision when I represented Calgary Centre as a Reform MP. Canada is in trouble, and Karim has the right conservative values and attitude to fight for us in Ottawa. He is a very knowledgeable individual who understands the issues and who's unafraid to take a stand. This young man has guts."
- Jim Silye, Reform MP for Calgary Centre (1993-1997) & winner of the 1971 Grey Cup.


John Reynolds

"Karim Jivraj represents the future of the Conservative Party. A young man of deep conviction, Karim has developed a clear, intellectually substantive national vision for what he hopes to achieve through public service. In Calgary Centre, Karim is the one to watch."
- Hon. John Reynolds, PC, former Leader of the Canadian Alliance and Leader of the Official Opposition.


Barbara McDougall

"I have known Karim Jivraj for years. His background in international law and his time spent in the United States and Europe has given him rare insight into complex geopolitical issues. This cultured, articulate and fluently bilingual young man will make a formidable parliamentarian."
— Hon. Barbara McDougall, Canada's 20th Minister of Foreign Affairs


Shiraz Shariff

"As a Calgary MLA for 13 years, I know a winner when I see one. Karim Jivraj is the only candidate in Calgary Centre who can rally the conservative base and also persuade disaffected Liberal voters disappointed with Trudeau. Karim is convincing because he believes in things."
— Shiraz Shariff, Progressive Conservative Calgary MLA (1994-2008)


Ghina Al-Sewaidi

"Karim is a political scrapper. He’s a doggedly determined and fearless campaigner. During the 2015 federal election, the Conservative Party asked Karim to take on seasoned Liberal cabinet ministers in debates watched around the country. Karim is battle-tested. Even his opponents admire his hustle and backbone."
- Ghina Al-Sewaidi, lawyer & former President, University-Rosedale Conservative Association


Mark Hlady

"I got to know Karim while knocking on doors and talking to Calgary voters. I served 3 terms as an MLA under Premier Ralph Klein and I can tell you: Karim has what it takes. He’s decent, humble and extremely hardworking. Like me, he's an adopted Albertan who came here for a better life. I’m proud to endorse him to be our next Conservative MP in Calgary-Centre."
— Mark Hlady, Progressive Conservative Calgary MLA (1993-2004)


Moe Amery

"Karim's passion for Canada is unmistakable. It almost seems like a story from another time, but his dream is to serve his fellow citizens in the House of Commons. I hope he gets there. He's a uniquely gifted candidate with the potential to become a significant actor in Canadian political life."
— Moe Amery, Progressive Conservative Calgary MLA (1993-2015)


Russell Hillier

"Karim is a patriotic Canadian who puts his country first and is unafraid to take on the Liberal sacred cows of dual-loyalty multiculturalism and ethnic vote-pandering. He loves Canada. He's deeply principled. He is without a doubt the most dynamic, energetic and exciting candidate in this race. Karim is the type of next-generation conservative that the Liberals fear most."
— Russell Hillier, best-selling author of One Soldier: A Canadian Soldier's Fight Against the Islamic State
