RAJ Grewal, a business lawyer, won the federal Liberal nomination for Ontario’s Brampton East last Sunday – but with fireworks.
There were complaints that hundreds of people weren’t able to take part in the nomination meeting in which 2.910 voted, according to a Toronto Star report.
Those who couldn’t vote were apparently might upset and some said that a brawl ensued.
Peel Regional Police dispatched officers to the International Centre in Mississauga, but said it was for crowd control.
Brett Thalmann, Director of Operations for the Liberal Party of Canada Ontario, told the Star that there was no brawl and only 245 people were turned away.
Parminder Singh, a doctor and sports commentator, who lost said he intended to challenge Grewal’s victory.
