Greg Kwong’s My Stampede Story
Greg Kwong, regional managing director of commercial real estate firm CBRE, grew up in Calgary.
The one Calgary Stampede that he will never forget was when his dad Norman Kwong, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta at the time, was Stampede Parade Marshal.
"In the old days, a lot of the Chinese or Asians weren't allowed to do a lot of stuff in the city," he says. "It was just edification that we've come around 180 degrees. I saw my father beaming because of it, and it was just nice in that respect."
