Canada election: Brampton East

The riding of Brampton East is up for grabs with Independent MP Raj Grewal not running for re-election.

Grewal, elected in 2015 under the Liberal Party’s banner, resigned from caucus in the wake of his gambling problem that led him to incur significant debts.

Maninder Sidhu was acclaimed as the Liberal nominee in July for the upcoming election.

Brampton East is an electoral district with a South Asian majority at 65.8 per cent, according to the 2016 census.
