United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney has issued a statement following the nomination of Harjinder Grewal as the party’s candidate in Edmonton-Manning for the 2019 provincial election:
“Today, more than 1000 United Conservative members in Edmonton-Manning cast ballots for their preferred candidate for the next election from amongst four great contestants.
“I would like to congratulate Harjinder Grewal on winning an incredibly competitive race.
“Harjinder has had a long and distinguished career as a detective with the Edmonton Police Service. Upon immigrating to Canada from India, Harjinder received a Mechanical Engineering diploma from NAIT before deciding to begin a 30-year career in policing. In 2013, Harjinder was recognized with the Kiwanis “Top Cop” award for his volunteer contributions to the community. For almost twenty years, he dedicated his time to the Edmonton District Soccer Association, serving on the board and for six years, as president. Harjinder is a father of three and his dedication to the community through policing and volunteerism make him a valuable member of the United Conservative team as we work to present Albertans with a common-sense alternative to the NDP. I am pleased to welcome Harjinder as the United Conservative candidate in Edmonton-Manning.
“I would also like to
thank Kulshan Gill, Gurcharan Garcha, Dakota Drouillard, and their teams for
their participation in the democratic process and dedication to our movement.”
