Do you recognise this man? No, I didn't think so. He's the Conservative that is trying to unseat Ruby Dhalla.
Fair enough. Every party is obviously entitled to run a candidate, however, one would expect that if you were running to become a member of parliament, you would surround yourself with ethical people, no?
Apparently not so much with this guy.
Here's a cute little innocent letter to the editor of the Brampton Guardian:
Last Sunday (Aug. 2), it was great to the the families of Brampton-Springdale come out to Parm Gill’s Free Community Barbecue at Loafers Lake.
With a wide range of people from all cultures, communities and Brampton council representatives, it is clear to see that Parm Gill has made and continues to make a positive impact in Brampton, and he is not even an elected official.
This is the kind of MP we need representing Brampton. An MP that lives , works and raises his family in Brampton.
Who knows when the next election will be but I am glad to see that Brampton’s future look a lot brighter, knowing that Parm Gill and his volunteer team are already working towards making Brampton and Brampton-Springdale safer and more welcoming city like it was once known as.
We need Parm Gill in Ottawa representing us, irrelevant what party he represents, as our future elected official I am confident he will represent our needs first.
Aww, sweet right? Average Joe citizen lauding someone who wants to represent the community...
Not so much as it turns out.
Note that last line:
....irrelevant what party he represents....
That would be a nice sentiment if it were remotely true.
You see, the author of the letter is Michael Gyoval and Michael isn't your average Joe citizen. No sireee. Michael Gyoval was Parm Gill's campaign manager during the last election. No party preference there!
Isn't that pathetic? Doesn't say much about your candidate if you have to write phony letters to the editor to promote him does it?
