”I was inspired to join politics by my grandfather who was a member of parliament back in India. His example inspires me to this day to always fight for the little guy. That’s why I joined the Green Party of Ontario, because Mike Schreiner’s drive for justice & sustainability reminds me of the same. It’s an honour to be a part of a party that’s creating a greener & more caring Ontario for generations to come.”
