Meet The Candidate

I was born in North Vancouver, British Columbia, to an immigrant father who had come to Canada in search of a better life. In 2006, I decided to answer a higher calling and set out to serve both North Vancouver and my country by running for federal office.

Therefore, I am seeking your support in winning North Vancouver back for... Read Bio
