In 1977, a young Peter Demong moved with his family to the newly established community of Lake Bonavista from Saskatchewan. Along with the rest of his siblings, Peter spent his formative years in what are now the most established communities of Ward 14. As long as Peter can remember, conversations with his family around the dinner table were lively. They piqued his interest in history, law, politics, and government.
With his wife Naomi, Peter owned and operated Deer Valley Florist from 1996 to 2015. Married in 1990, the couple reside in the new community of Legacy and are raising two daughters. Over the years, their flower shop became a mainstay in the Ward 14 community, and a soapbox for residents. This is one of the reasons that Peter ran for City Council.
With 18 years as a business owner, and 25 years in the field of Logistics Management under his belt, Peter brings a successful business background to Council, offering the ability to tenaciously manage budgets and understand the needs of small and large businesses alike. His experience speaks to his practical views on civic matters, his knack for effective management, and his commitment to fiscal responsibility. Along with his compassion and sense of fairness, Peter’s voice on Calgary City Council is one of common sense and realism.
Among Peter Demong’s passions are encouraging citizen engagement, and supporting hard-working community volunteers. His essay contest for grade six students, the Ward 14 Communities BBQ, and his innovative Counciltalk sessions are proof of this. Involved with many initiatives aimed at improving corporate efficiency, he is currently Chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Utilities and Corporate Services.
