WILL the Grewals make history again – this time with a mom-son team in the House of Commons?
Earlier Gurmant Grewal and Nina Grewal had made history as the first husband-wife team in Parliament.
On Saturday, Liv Grewal, Nina’s younger son, won the Conservative nomination for the new Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon federal riding as he bagged 54 per cent of the 1,846 votes cast.
The riding comprises the northernmost portion of Abbotsford, all of Mission, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs, and up to north of Lillooet and Ashcroft.
Liv beat out Doris Woodman-McMillan, Korky Neufeld, Paul Redekopp, Brad Vis and Morley (Andy) H. Anderson.
Abbotsford businessman Jatinder (Jati) Sidhu has been nominated as the federal Liberal candidate in the riding.
Liv earned his Bachelor’s degree in political science from SFU and his Master’s in public management and governance from the London School of Economics. He interned at the office of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Grewal is a behavioural economics consultant who seeks to provide strategies for utility companies on how to get consumers to decrease water consumption. He is on the government affairs committee of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, according to news reports.
