Former Liberal MP, Sukh Dhaliwal, who was first elected MP in 2006 and again in 2008 from Newton-North Delta, is trying to win back the riding from the incumbent NDP MP Jinny Sims, who defeated him in the 2011 election.
Sims won by about 900 votes in an election where the NDP’s so-called Orange Wave knocked down many Liberal MPs.
Both Dhaliwal and Sims have their own solid support in the riding.
And then there is the Conservative candidate, well-known media personality Harpreet Singh.
In 2011, the Conservative candidate, Mani Kaur Fallon (who is running from Surrey Centre this time), came third – she was only 73 votes behind Dhaliwal. And she was nowhere as well known as Harpreet Singh.
Sims got 15,413 votes, Dhaliwal garnered 14,510 votes and Fallon netted 14,437.
So I hope you get the picture now.
