POOR Lieutenant-Colonel Harjit Singh Sajjan!
Ever since his boss Justin Trudeau parachuted him into the Vancouver South riding last year in blatant disregard of decent democratic norms thanks to massive lobbying by some World Sikh Organization supporters such as Prem Vinning, the resentment in the South Asian community has only kept growing.
Now former Liberal supporters – yes, even prominent businessman Barj Dhahan (far right in the second photo), who would have been the Liberal candidate in the riding if there had been a fair competition – showed their open support for incumbent Conservative MP Wai Young in the riding on Tuesday evening at a special reception attended by, among others, well-respected community members Major Sidhu and Sarup Mann. Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander was also present.
It is going to be a very interesting battle (though I am not sure who the NDP candidate will be).
