Hope, once again 20 Indo-Canadian’s Become Members of Parliament

Edmonton, Sept. 5: 59 Indo-Canadian candidates are contesting in 36 constituencies in this unnecessary snap parliamentary Election. And it’s worth noticing that out of those numbers 43 candidates belong to Punjab, back in India.

It was in 2019 federal election that for the first time 20 Indo-Canadian candidates were elected as members of the Parliament. In this election, we hope to repeat the history.

Ruling Liberal Party, Conservative Party, and the New Democratic Party have fielded 19, 15 and 12 candidates respectively; while Peoples Party of Canada is running 10, Green Party 1 and 2 candidates are running as Independents to woo 1.7 million-strong Indo-Canadian-community.

Three MP’s who won in 2019 are not running this time; they include: Navdeep Bains (Mississauga Streetsville), Gagan Sikand (Mississauga Malton), and Rameshwar Sangha (Brampton Centre).

As usual, it‘s Punjabi versus Punjabi in around 12 constituencies:
