Simmi Dhillon’s great-grandfather came to Canada from Goraya, India to work on the railway that would eventually join British Columbia to the rest of Canada. He was taken by the natural beauty of the land, and decided this would be home for future generations. Over 100 years later, Simmi still enjoys going to the temple he helped hand build in Abbotsford, and sitting in the backyard and staring out at the view he undoubtedly appreciated.
Simmi would like to help to build a government that properly supports Veterans, acts to solve the problem of missing and murdered indigenous women, and fights to secure pensions for our aging population. Simmi also supports Green Party plans to make post-secondary education more affordable and accessible.
Simmi’s decision to run for public office was born out of her desire to defend our environment – the natural landscape that her great-grandfather fell in love with so many years ago. The need for climate action is critical, as your MP Simmi would work to ensure that the climate is no longer an afterthought in Ottawa, but a priority.
The Green Party of Canada is excited to have Simmi Dhillon as our candidate in the riding of Langley-Aldergrove.
