September 7, 2015 BRAMPTON – Yesterday, hundreds of supporters came together with Team Kahlon to celebrate the grand opening of the campaign office for Harbaljit Singh Kahlon, the NDP candidate for Brampton East.
Supporters were greeted by volunteers, given a tour of the campaign office and mingled with Harbaljit while enjoying music, good food and fun activities.
Ontario NDP Deputy Leader Jagmeet Singh, School Board Trustee Harkirat Singh and former Regional Councillor Candidate for Wards 9 and 10 Gurratan Singh taught young volunteers how to tie different styles of the dastaar (turban).
“We’re here to serve the residents of this riding and we want to build a community that celebrates its diversity, a place where role models can have a positive impact on our youth,” said Kahlon.
Ardaas (a Sikh prayer) was performed to give thanks and to bless the campaign efforts prior to Harbaljit cutting the ribbon and thanking supporters for attending.
“I have always been driven by the value of seva that you, the community, has instilled in me. When Jagmeet Singh and all of you asked me to take on this role and to help build a better Brampton, I was honoured,” said Kahlon, “I’m going to work with this great team, which includes all of you, to build a better Canada, starting right here in Brampton east.”
