Recently, the Ontario PCs nominated Prabmeet Sarkaria to be their candidate to run in the riding of Brampton South. Prabmeet sat down with Brampton Focus host Michael A. Charbon earlier this year to discuss his background, why he is running for Office, and his platform for Ontario. You may watch this interview above.
As we approach 2018, the Province of Ontario is gearing up for its 42nd general election.
The 2018 election is notable for several reasons, but foremost because it will be the first time that Brampton will feature five separate ridings. The Province is adopting the recently established federal riding boundaries in southern Ontario. The new boundaries were created to ensure that representation by population is maintained.
Bramptonians will elect one representative to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in each of the five new Brampton ridings: Brampton West, Brampton East, Brampton North, Brampton South, and Brampton Centre.
Previously, Brampton had four ridings, and the current provincial representatives, or Members of Provincial Parliament are:
- Vic Dhillon (LIB) – Brampton West
- Harinder Malhi (LIB) – Brampton-Springdale
- Amrit Mangat (LIB) – Mississauga-Brampton South
- Jagmeet Singh (NDP) – Bramalea-Gore-Malton
